Milestone post: my 5️⃣0️⃣th bookcooklook! 🎉 sometimes the right book comes along at the perfect time, and this was just that, for me. this sweet, heartwarming novel is the literary equivalent of a warm cup of tea and a cozy blanket.
the shop of the title, located in an idyllic cotswolds town called peasebrook, is owned by emilia, who is determined to carry on her late father’s book store despite her inexperience and the business’s financial woes. this beloved shop proves central to the connection between various other peasebrook residents, who are as integral to the story as emilia. as the bookshop comes into its own, so do the relationships between these charming characters, each of whom i was rooting for until the very last page.
it can be challenging to find books that are light in subject, but still deeply satisfying. this book fit that bill perfectly. i found it heartwarming but never sappy, and while some may take issue with its slight predictability i found it sweetly reassuring. being nestled in the cotswolds with these earnest yet relatable characters was a treat that i didn’t want to end!
how to find love in a bookshop has a lovely christmas eve scene, where customers drink mulled wine in the store and children nibble on gingerbread men. i couldn’t resist recreating these little cookie people, whose smiles reminded me of the books’ characters together for the holiday. our family celebrates hanukkah - which is all about donuts - but i’m hoping this cookie recipe becomes a new december tradition for us - we had so much fun making them! do you have a winter baking tradition? please share in the comments!

🌲 happy sunday, bookworms!!
qotd: what’s your most favorite thing to do on the weekends??
when i think of the weekend, i dream of spending three days curled up with a stack of books, and doing nothing but reading all weekend long. unfortunately for me that has never happened. 😆 i do love to read on the weekend when i can, i just don’t get to do it as often as i’d like. ☺️ today i’m hoping to spend the day finally reading *the raven king*, which i have wanted to read for the longest, and i can’t wait to hopefully spend the whole day devouring this book. 🤓 what do you like to do on the weekend??

Happy weekend dear friends!!! as you see i am in my happy place right now, where do you want to live besides at you are now of course, well i really adore british rural sides, where mostly my favorite classic books setting were it's just so peaceful when imagined it to live there :) peace and quiet! .
a bit current read update, the book i was holding, sons and lovers by dh lawrence, it's the first time i read his work, i knew many critics of his books that got me so curious to read it, will update it more later :).
"𝘉𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘢𝘵𝘩 𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘴𝘵𝘰𝘯𝘦, 𝘐 𝘣𝘶𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘥 𝘢 𝘴𝘦𝘤𝘳𝘦𝘵. 𝘔𝘶𝘤𝘩 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘩𝘢𝘴 𝘨𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘣𝘺, 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘪𝘵 𝘮𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘣𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦, 𝘸𝘢𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘰 𝘣𝘦 𝘥𝘪𝘴𝘤𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘥. 𝘐 𝘸𝘰𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳 𝘪𝘧 𝘢𝘯𝘺𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘧𝘪𝘯𝘥 𝘪𝘵. 𝘐𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘺 𝘥𝘰, 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘺 𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘯𝘥?" - the architect's apprentice by elif shafak 👑
i've only read the first 35 pages and i'm crazy excited about what happens...or what happened and why.
when i'm done i will definitely write a proper blog about this, but until then, if you've read it please let me know how you like it.

Happy saturday ♡ today i want to talk about the discrimination against tattoos. i love my tattoos. i wouldn’t feel like myself without them. but recently i’ve encountered a situation where having minimal finger tattoos can prevent me from having a job, and that honestly breaks my heart and pisses me off. i feel discriminated against, because i can be the perfect candidate for the job but because i have finger tattoos, i can’t get one. to me, that’s discrimination. and i always semi-feared getting tattoos for this reason, but if you really think about it, we live a very short life. and i never want to stop myself from being who i am because of a job. that is just ridiculous, don’t you think? i will fully embrace who i am and what i love. and to the jobs/companies that deny people with tattoos a job, you are discriminating against fully-capable working people. what are you opinions on tattoos?
today i am enjoying my new favorite tea by @tazo <<butterscotch blondie>> and watching one of my favorite movies, the fellowship of the ring. featured is the amazing musky scent of w i n t e r f e l l by @gunndeancandle.co. you can use code tara10 for a discount on your purchase ☺️
Some wise words from jane austen who was born #onthisday in 1775.
i hope you all have a calm and relaxing sunday ❤️ just a reminder that there’s only one day left to place an order in time for christmas delivery!🎁
