Confession - I know all about 'A Room of One's Own' but I have not until recently read anything by Virginia Woolf. Actually now I have, I think I understand Virginia completely. Given my love of good food and wine what could be more insulting than the Oxbridge practice of feeding the men glorious dinners of sole with a counterpane of the whitest cream, partridge, and a confection which rose all sugar from the waves with refills of wine, meanwhile the women were served a plain gravy soup, rumps of cattle from a muddy market with curled and yellowed sprouts and prunes and custard with the water-jug liberally passed around. The insult - I think my blood would have boiled. "One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well". Similarly I think I share her feelings for housework demonstrated in 'The Mark on the Wall'. Swipe to see! This made me laugh when I discovered what it was. I definitely need to try Mrs Dalloway and To the Lighthouse next. Please let me know which Virginia Wolff's you have enjoyed. #virginiawolff #aroomofonesown #themarkonthewall #mrsdalloway #tothelighthouse #hogarthpress #penguinbooks #macmillancollectorslibrary #feminism #lovebooks #lovereading #onecannotthinkwelllovewellsleepwellifonehasnotdinedwell #markhaddon #twostories #stbridesbay #shortstories #essay #fireside #goodfood #lovebooks #lovereading #bookstagram #brusselsprouts

🌼 " La intuición puede hacer a veces que nos equivoquemos. Y la intuición es lo que la gente utiliza en la vida para tomar decisiones. Pero la lógica puede ayudarte a deducir la respuesta correcta." 🌼 "Madre solía decir que Christopher era un nombre bonito, porque es una historia sobre ser amable y servicial, pero yo no quiero que mi nombre se refiera a una historia sobre ser amable y servicial. Yo quiero que mi nombre se refiera a mí." 🌼Buenas ¿como andan? Estos días no estuve muy activa porque no había terminado ningún libro y anduve un poco enferma 😢
Estoy terminando este libro (me quedan poquitas paginas) y tengo que decirles que me encanta 😍 Este es el cuarto libro que leo este año dónde los que relatan la historia son niños. Este protagonista en particular se llama Christopher y tiene Asperger (no estoy muy segura igual); y la historia empieza con la misteriosa muerte del perro de una vecina dónde nuestro protagonista está decidido a averiguar quién lo mató pero entre tantas idas y vueltas termina descubriendo algunos secretos familiares y a cuestionarse el sentido común de los adultos. Es un lindo libro con una historia enternecedora y entretenida, además tiene un par de dibujos y gráficos.
🌼Prometo estar mas activa 😂 ya me estoy poniendo las pilas con mis lecturas actuales (nunca voy a poder leer un solo libro) y estoy pensando algo lindo para navidad 😱😱😱

I heard so many good things about this book, that I had to read it for myself. I was not disappointed, its a delightful story about Christopher, a 15 year-old boy who discovers a dog lying dead on his neighbour's lawn. We are then taken into Christopher's world, as he tries to find the culprit. A quirky, heartwarming tale...loved it! 📚 #books #bookcovers #bookart #bookaddict #bookporn #readingrainbow #iamreading #reading #weekendvibes #thecuriousincidentofthedoginthenighttime #whitbreadbookoftheyear #markhaddon #dog #doglover #oscarwildequote #lifestyle

New additions to the fam! 📚 I got them secondhand (for only €6 in total). •
I’ve read one book by both Mark Haddon and Matthew Quick so far and the book by Celeste Ng just sounded v interesting. •
Have you read any of these books yet? I don’t know which one to read first 🙈•
Nothing new besides this. Might start Turtles All The Way Down tonight 🙄. .

Ve ofiste çalışan bazı insanların sabah evden çıkıp işe gelirken havanın güneşli olduğunu gördüklerinde bunun onları mutlu ettiğini, ama yağmur yağdığını gördüklerinde mutsuz olduklarını ama aradaki bu farkın meteorolijik bir olay olduğunu ve eğer bir ofiste çalışıyorlarsa hava durumunun günlerinin iyi ya da kötü geçmesiyle hiçbir alakası olmadığını söyledim. 🧐 Christopher Boone

Number 63. (Did NOT take this photo today - today I am curled up in a ball with a heat pack, feeling sorry for myself). Can’t believe it took me so long to get around to reading this one. Thanks for the recommendation @khwalder - loved it. #curiousincidentofthedoginthenighttime #markhaddon #100booksinayear #greatfiction #readingtime #readingissexy #readeverything #readinglikeachamp

And... *drum roll*... there in! Again when i should be saving i spoilt myself with 3 plays for next year. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, An Ideal Husband and what im most excited about Twelfth Night starring.... GEOFFREY RUSH!! I absolutely love Melbourne Theatre Company. They bring out the best plays each year. Now to wait patiently.

“You can’t blend in when you were born to stand out” dice R.J. Palacio en su libro Wonder.
Decidí comprarme este libro cuando leí que estaba destinado a seguir los pasos de #thecuriousincidentofthedoginthenighttime de Mark Haddon. Lo compré con mi amiga @oporeader y de verdad no podría estar más contenta! Solo llevo unas páginas y ya me está llevando desde la risa más tronchante hasta el sollozo más desgarrador! No puedo parar de leerlo!!!
🇬🇧I decided to buy Wonder by R.J. Palacio, when I read it was “destined to go the way of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time”. So far it has not disappointed me. This book drives you from the most hysterical laughter to the most heartbreaking sob. Definitely a must read, specially if you loved Mark Haddon’s book.

Emily Wilson spoke at the Archive of Performances of Greek & Roman Drama @oxford_uni last night - her astonishing new translation of #TheOdyssey is out now. #MarkHaddon is a big fan - he was pleased to meet Emily at the event!
