“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmastime.”
~Laura Ingalls Wilder
🎄
I do get so excited for Christmas. I am also excited to read Hiddensee by Gregory Maguire. I finished Anna Karenina today and I will post my review later this week. So that means it is time to start this book. I have seen many mixed reviews about it but I always like to form my own opinions. If you have read it tell me what you think.
🎄
One reason I feel really drawn to this book is we have taken my daughter to see the Houston Ballet’s Nutcracker every year since she was 4. It is always so magical to go with her. She collects nutcrackers too because of her love for this ballet. Does your family have Holiday traditions like this?

The Fangirl notebook is one of my faves from @the.inked.page . They are on vacation until the first of the year but be sure to follow them. You can use MEL10 for a discount when they reopen.
🎄
My extra sparkly Christmas book sleeve is from @babymybook . The always fabulous @crystalcandis has a rep discount code so be sure to check both places out.

"But you can't give your heart to a Wild thing: The more you do, the stronger they get. Until they’re strong enough to run into the woods. Or fly into a tree. And then a taller tree. And then the sky. That's how you'll end up Mr Bell, if you let yourself love a wild thing: you'll end up looking at the sky"

Waking up to snow means a morning of tea and quiet contemplation. ❄️ This year hasn’t been easy — for me or for anybody — and while there have been a lot of incredible highlights, from days with friends to new high points in my bookselling career, there’s a lot I didn’t manage to do and a lot I’m still struggling with. And that’s okay! I’m going to take it one day at a time with my mental health and try to improve myself how I can. My projects are still here. I can still work on them. And that ever-teetering TBR can keep my busy while I try to save money. The anxiety bees flying around my head may be screaming, but it doesn’t mean I have to. I got this. (And so do you. 👊)

It has been a while since I posted. My New Years resolution is to get back into #bookstagram and be more active. Here’s what I’m currently reading at the moment, I’m not a huge Christmas person but I do like winter and I think it’s the best season for fairytales. This nutcracker retelling so far is pretty good.

What are you guys currently reading?

Ano passado, fui ao teatro junto com dois grandes amigos para assistir essa adaptação incrível. Cada segundo vivendo a experiência proporcionada por esse musical foi mágico e emocionante. Um ano após esse grande momento, tenho em mãos o livro em que o espetáculo foi baseado. Posso ouvir as vozes de Myra Ruiz como Elphaba, bruxa do oeste e Fabi Bang como Galinda(Glinda)... A verdade nunca contada sobre Oz. "Você vai perceber que a Bruxa Má do Oeste pode não ser tão má quanto imaginávamos." #Wicked #GregoryMaguire

“Hiddensee” by Gregory Macguire. Holiday-themed reading to follow watching a film version of the Nutcracker & one of my favorite holiday movies, “Drei Haselnüsse für Aschenbrödel“

Hello friends, today I wanted to show you how the whole cover design for Hiddensee is incredibly well thought out. If you read your books without the dust jacket like I do, this was such a cool surprise. I think the book is worth purchasing just for this amazing cover. 😭
.
You guys tag in me in the coolest things. Thank you @lynacassimir !

🌿 Favorite Book Adaptation: The Harry Potter series.
🌿 Movie That Made You Cry: The Notebook had me bawling my eyes out, but I cry to a lot of movies. 😂
🌿 Favorite Animation: The Little Prince
🌿 Movie Everyone Has Seen Except You: the new Blade Runner. :(
🌿 Favorite Classic Movie: a book related one.... Little Women.
🌿 Books You Want Adapted To Film: The Winternight Trilogy by Katherine Arden. It would be beautiful.
.
Thank you @youngbookcraft !
#tellmeaboutyourself tag:
🦊Favourite animal: I am honestly so in love with all animals. Even those ugly little Aye-Aye. If you don’t know what they are you should look them up. 😂
🐶Dogs or cats: I have a cat and she is the most amazing, but again.... I LOVE ALL ANIMALS AND I WOULD LOVE A DOG JUST THE SAME.
🙈Celebrity crush: Harry Styles and so many embarrassing others.
🌇Favorite City: I’m really bad at picking favorites. Though I really like Athens, Quito, San Diego, San Francisco...
📺Favorite TV Show: Game of Thrones and a lot of others. I’m really into series that are dark and deal with psyche and crime. Also science fiction. (True Detective, Mindhunter, Stranger Things)
🌊Scared of: Worms. I have scoleciphobia. I will have a panic attack at the sight of worms.
❣️Era to live: I feel like this era has a lot to offer for me as a woman. There is certainly more freedom to do things. I just imagine being labeled a witch for liking what I like if I lived in the past. Hahah.
.
I’m trying out all sorts of new things lately regarding pictures. I’m on some kind of experimental stage. Hope it’s not weird to people who have followed me from day 1. This is a style inspired by @elizabeth_sagan!

Books that give backstories are great. Seeing things from the Witch’s point of view gave me a whole new perspective of this wonderful tale. The characters that we grew up to love and adore have this history that has been shed to light. It’s always exciting to read the secrets and figuring out the villains aren’t always villains and most of the time are just misunderstood. It’s always fun to see a while other side to characters we grew up on. Elphaba was misunderstood and an animal lover. Glinda was a Galinda before something happened she preferred the new name. Friendships, companions, and justice. Oz is not what we have seemed to believe. It’s amazing what a pair of beautiful shoes can cause. What I really loved on this book was the map. This hardcover edition is very beautiful. I’m sad to have to give this book back, lol. #wickedwitchofthewest #wicked #gregorymaguire #Elphaba #Dorothy #Glinda #Offtoseethewizard
“So Marie couldn't talk to anyone about her adventures, but the idea of that wonderful fairyland lingered on. She thought she heard murmurs of sweet sound, she saw it all again the moment she let her mind dwell on it, and so it was that instead of playing as usual she could sit still, never moving but deep in her own thoughts, with the result that she was scolded for being a little dreamer.”

Saw The Nutcracker ballet today. After years and years of always seeing it on tv every year, it was a real joy going to a performance. Love this story and the ballet was really great. The story gets me in a dreamers mood every time... makes me want to start really working on reading #Hiddensee by #GregoryMaguire.

I enjoyed Wicked and #hiddensee is written in a similar fashion. #gregorymaguire brings the backstory of Drosselmeier to life, from boyhood to old age when he gives the #nutcracker to his beloved Klara. #holidayreading #christmasreading #bookstagram #booklover #instareads #instabooks #bibliophile #audiobook #audible

We met #gregorymaguire today. I was really hoping that the book store had a copy of “What the Dickens” for sale as I’ve been hoping to read it for while, but I did get “After Alice.” I can’t wait to read it!
