leejennjessica Sunday night read. This isn't exactly a memoir of sorts nor is it Murakami telling you about the benefits of running or whatnot; rather the title should be taken very literally. By giving an insight to how and what he thinks about his running, indirectly he gives the reader an exclusive peek into his inner monologues and the way this private reclusive author thinks. Indeed, the way the text flows feels like running itself; you could imagine Murakami running with a verbatim recorder attached to his brain. Even if you've not read any Murakami fiction, this is a good read for anyone who understands and can appreciate the efforts placed in the process of running or exercise or achieving any personal goals at all. And yes, I love to have coffee for a 'nightcap'! #vscocam #coffee #allthingscoffee #goodreads #igreads #murakami #harukimurakami #currentlyreading #books #bookstagram #literature #running 2mon

leejennjessica || Ethiopia Konga || Complex fruity notes, hint of black tea, juicy with a spicy acidic profile || It's a sweet light roast, and the fruity notes are already evident by the smell permeating the air when I grind the beans. So rewarding to be brewing single origin from the comforts of home.

leejennjessica It's my second Christmas with Mummy and Daddy~ A year has past since they rescued me from the roadside! My fur shines now so I hope more humans will think I'm cute and feed me more. I've been an extra good girl so Mummy gave me more snacks on this special day. Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Season's Woof-woofs, and that you get plenty of love, food, and a nice clean bed to paw everyday like me! #momo #silkyterrier #christmas #vscocam #books #goodreads #bookstagram #dogstagram #dogsofinstagram 2mon

leejennjessica "Secret #25: Your twenties will produce more failure than you care to remember. The key is: when you fail, don't begin calling yourself a failure." Thank you to @hicklory for this gorgeous gift of a book. Two hours in including over dinner, it's already got me into a mix of groaning, laughing, stabbing myself in the guts, & giving myself a reassuring pat on the back. I'll treasure both this book & my twenties. #goodreads #bookstagram #nonfiction 2mon

leejennjessica Terry & Momo taking a lazy evening nap on the sofa together. It never ceases to amaze me each day the amount of love & closeness one little furry bean can dispense. #silkyterrier #dogsofinstagram #love 3mon
  •   clconquers How's Momo now? 3mon
  •   howiedude_ 3mon
  •   leejennjessica @clconquers I just took her to the vet this morning to have her stitches removed, and also to get the annual vaccination done. The vet said all the wounds have healed and dried up very nicely! 3mon

leejennjessica Looks like no new dresses (again) for me for Christmas, but that's totally okay, it doesn't matter; this is worth so much more joy for me <3 #bbw2014 #bigbadwolf #BBWStash #books #mysortofporn 3mon
  •   leejennjessica @_seapig So eager to dig into that after having read One Day!!! 3mon
  •   _seapig How great was One Day?!?! I always hesitate before rereading it bc it makes me cry 😑😑 3mon
  •   leejennjessica @_seapig I had one of the longest hangover after One Day: 3 fkin weeks before I could pick up another book. That was how amazing it was 3mon
  •   mirroruniverse22 Such a great selection Jessie! Cloud Atlas is such a fabulous book, as is Please Look After Mother. xx 3mon
  •   mirroruniverse22 And The Garden of Evening Mists! ;D 3mon
  •   ikea2umy Alamak! So jealousnye.. How much bled your wallet dry for this? 3mon
  •   leejennjessica @mirroruniverse22 Thanks! :D Those 3 have been on my wish list for the longest time ever, and so are more than half of this haul actually! 3mon
  •   leejennjessica @ikea2umy Rm480 However considering that a rough estimation of the actual retail prices of this pile comes close to rm2k or more, this was actually a crazy good bargain! #bbw2014 isn't over yet, still got time to go go go if you haven't! 3mon

leejennjessica Terry had a night time dessert adventure in the kitchen! =3 The sweet tooth ran out of candy, so he decided to make something sweet on his own.

leejennjessica "I have hated the words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right." This is the book that will haunt me for days and weeks to come, the one that could make me put down everything I was doing to live through the last 250 pages and forget sleep until 8am, the beautiful one that tore my heart apart in silent invisible tears, the one that made me feel like a part of me died when I flipped the last page over, the one that was full of grief yet full with colors. The one book where I welcomed Death.
Gottverdammt.

leejennjessica "Lesson 14: Happiness is to be loved for exactly who you are"
And I'm forever searching for mine in a cup of coffee. For a supposedly light parable, it was quite deep and thought provoking as I followed Hector's worldly travels. Book 2 next! #vscocam
5mon
  •   hicklory Looks interesting! What's it about? 5mon
  •   leejennjessica @hicklory It's about a psychiatrist named Hector who one day decided to take a break and travel around the world in hopes of searching for the secrets of happiness (and unhappiness at that too). This is after realising that he isn't really happy himself and started doubting his capacity as a psychiatrist, which is to treat a lot of unhappy people of course. :) 5mon
  •   leejennjessica I have book 2 & 3. 4,5&6 hasn't been translated from the French yet iirc. @hicklory 5mon
  •   hicklory @leejennjessica sounds like something I'd like 5mon
  •   leejennjessica @hicklory Hehe thought so too. It's really interesting that the author also managed to capture the socio-economic & political situation of the countries Hector visited subtly interlaced with all those happiness lessons, even without mentioning the names of those countries! 5mon

leejennjessica Just exchanged 3 of my old reads for these other 3 at @sjbookexchange cabin! The volunteer librarian / admin told me that I'll be in for a ride of feels for The Memory Keeper's Daughter; I'm all in for the #feels. ;w;

If you're looking for new reads on a budget, go exchange some books here at USJ12 & do the reading community a favour at the same time!

leejennjessica Momo came during the lowest point in my life, when I was dealing with my general anxiety disorder, panic attacks & depression. This fur kid was my constant companion when I was learning how to be comfortable with being alone, now that Terry's career has begun. The illness has improved by leaps and bounds, partially with the help of countless furry hugs and beady-eyed stares. I wish I could better express how much happiness Momo has brought into my life (^^;; 6mon
