    Have you solved the world’s best selling mystery? Many believed they did, until they reached the end and uncovered the shocking truth.

    Eight individuals, each with a checkered past, arrive on a desolate island off the coast of England. They spend their nights in an eerie mansion until one of them is murdered. The survivors spend the subsequent days trying to determine which amongst them is the killer as they’re picked off one by one.
    And Then There Were None. —————————————————————————-

    Life has been horribly stressful around here and I feel so sorry for neglecting the small but precious community I've built here over the last few weeks - I hope to get around to more engagement from tomorrow on, today really was the peak day in terms of stress♦️on top of various job and university commitments there's also been lots to do around the house, cat and horse care, and then I'm unable to allow myself to slack in terms of fitness♦️long story short, I have trouble with perfectionism paired with multiple other issues and should just stop complaining. It doesn't help that my partner @dumadan left me for the next 10 days to visit family, which leaves me with all the chores (but also lots of time to read and for myself hopefully!!!)♦️How do you deal with busier times? Do you have some specific strategies or mantras? And how important is it to you that accounts you follow are present every day?♦️btw pictured are the two novels I'll write my long term paper on this semester! .

    "I space-walk through empty bedrooms..." - Simon Armitage on Mother, Any Distance. He said he grew up in the 'space age' when the man on the moon was always on his telly, on the news; inspired to add this phrase to his final stanza - now that's some decent AO3 context! 👌🎨📖 #PoetryLive today with 76 year 11s! Saw #CarolAnnDuffy , #SimonArmitage , #OwenSheers , #DaljitNagra and more. Great way to explore context and meaning behind some key poems. 📖 #poetry #poetrygcse #englishlit

    Through all my phones + laptops + digital lives I’ve carted around this image— this quote— the weight of its beauty, it’s simplicity, the light + the embodied darkness. “We we’re together. I forget the rest.” I love it + it’s not even a direct quote. In the poem it is written: “Day by day and night by night we were together— All else has long been forgotten by me.” I used to care, mildly, that someone translated its sentiment from Victorian to postmodern but it’s hopeful to me now; that we can share our lives + the stories don’t get lost over time. The sentiment remains. They were together. And nothing else matters in my mind. #ohmyheart #waltwhitman #poetry #language #translation #englishlit #qotd #love

    V I C T O R I A N L I T .🇬🇧 ❤ .
    For this one, North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell, I watched (and rewatched) the @bbc adaptation with #danieladenbyashe and @richardcarmitage before even knowing it was based on a book 😂 Had to read it of course! And I must say, I pictured the characters when reading just as they were portrayed in the adaptation 😁👍
    .
    I really enjoyed diving into 19thC England, where you had this clear clivage between an industrialized, business-oriented North and a more indulgent South. Margaret Hale and her family go from the latter to the former, and need to adapt to different ways of living and thinking. Margaret's longing for her home in the south, where air is purer and the sky brighter, is made very clear to the reader. She adapts to the north nonethless, developing friendships regardless of class and condition. Our protagonist also has to compose with John Thornton, a mill-owner who appears quite harsh before we get to know him. A sweet romance, economical struggles for workers and owners, conflicts between classes... This novel gives a broad picture of 19thC England and English Lit. .
    The other big novel treating the same kind of themes at this time period is #Shirley by #charlottebrontë (I know, I've talked about it before 😂) but it's definitely longer and more dense. Gaskell's is a very good introduction to it and very pleasant to read. Plus this edition is beautiful 😁❤ .

    Morning coffee with my kid. We’re working our way through this beauty in prep for the school year and my kid’s first year of English Lit. #PerksofParenting

    During the Harlem Renaissance, many writers were encourage to write books that would uplift the social image of African Americans and expose the racism that was running rampant.

    Their Eyes Were Watching God was not one of those books.

    When asked why she didn’t address the racial aspect in her novel, Zora Neale Hurston responded, “I was writing a novel, not a treatise on sociology. I have ceased to think in terms of race; I think only in terms of individuals.” The statement is a strong argument considering the novel is about learning sense of self. Learning how to form your own path through life, to love and respect others, and to grow as an individual. These are lessons we all have to face, regardless of the color of our skin. —————————————————————————

    So I decided to set up this insta and this blog just for a bit of fun and to release my inner Geek. And in doing so I looked at loads of other book review sites and blogs around and it felt a bit of a miss that there were SO MANY reviews that were negative because of either a bad start or a bad end to the book. They failed to look at a larger picture and the negative mostly outweighed the good. So I decided to do a mini review for each book called #100pagesin (because you have to read at least 100 pages ... get it..) and then a full review at the end - of course. My first mini is up for Circe now and I hope to have finished this absolute BEAUTY by next week. 💕👏🏻 #books #bookstagram #instabook #bookclub #booksofinsta #bookreview #circe #englishlit #madelinemiller @waterstones

    Hey guys! How are you!🌙

    okay so here is my mock exam results in which i did a poll and you all pressed yes so here they are

    Disclaimer!!!
    In all honesty I NEVER thought i was going to get this. i don’t mean to come off as like a “bragging type person” or whatever because i’m really not. This is just showing you my progress, in the last 4 months and a few weeks that we have left. —

    overall, I am really happy with my results- I’m shocked about computer science because i crammed it the night before & didn’t get time to revise the notes i made and had to use the revision guide and also french😂. I got, no, SCRAPED , a 4 in my year 10 mocks so it very happy to have gotten an 8, it’s now about just improving exam technique 😬💞

    I’m very happy with my results and if i got them for gcse then i would be over the moon😊
