"looking from the window at the fantastic light and colour of my glittering fairy-world of fact that holds no tenderness, no quietude, i long suddenly for peace, for understanding." ~ daphne du maurier, the birds and other stories.

i'm not a great fan of short story collections, but every now and then, a little gem comes along. this collection was one of those.
each of the six stories was haunting in its own way, beautifully written and a joy to read.

the birds takes a look at what would happen if nature suddenly turned on us. it was genuinely creepy and made me think rather differently about all the birds jumping around the tree outside our balcony😅 . 5 stars.

monte verita, while being a little bit too long, impressed with some stunning imagery set in the mountains. and i always love a good mountain, i don't think there's anything more beautiful, so du maurier's descriptions kept me glued to the pages. this mountain was also home to a cult. 4 stars.

the apple tree follows a rather unlikable guy, whose wife died not long ago and who suddenly feels haunted by a tree. loved it! 5 stars.

the little photographer was my least favourite of the bunch. it became a little predictable towards the end. 3 stars.

kiss me again, stranger was another favourite and definitely packed a punch. 5 stars.

the old man, was a very short short-story and i had no idea where it was taking me. great collection finale. 4 stars.

my rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 .

#circleofbookishfriends day 21: tbr in summer.
.
.
it is cold and wet and summer is six months away.
for the first five weeks of australian summer i’ll be on the other side of the world for a uk/europe winter, so really it’s even further away.
i’m so okay with that though. summer is not my season. and i get a white christmas! 🎄
.
.
with that in mind, i cannot think about books to be read in summer right now. instead, here are some of my highlights from the summer just gone.
.
.
.
.
wow brittney, say summer again.

It's day twenty ooooooone of the #circleofbookishfriends challenge, and the prompt is tbr in summer. i've shared my tentative #tbr back in may on the first day of the challenge, so obviously there's some overlap. i really don't think i'm going to finish all the books in this and previous photos. i'm a slow reader, and there's no use for me to read for the sheer number of books.
.
front: dandelion wine, ray bradbury
top to bottom:
- snowman, jo nesbo
- casual vacancy, j.k. rowling
- handmaid's tale, margaret atwood
- 1984 & animal farm, george orwell
- selected works, james hadley chase
.
a lot of the books in this pile were given to me by dear @mediocre_monster, the most recent one being dandelion wine. thanks luv. :-* it means that there's going to be another significant overlap in books, this time with the 26th day of the challenge, as most of the books gifted to me come from that lovely lady. i've honestly been feeling like i'm taking photos of the same books over and over and over. once the challenge is done, i swear i'm going to dig up some random arse antique tome and take a s**t tonne of photos of it just for the sheer variety.
.
hope your monday is going well! i wish mine were a sunday. :p

Day 20 challenges: for #circleofbookishfriends it's #socksunday, and for #iveonlygotmyshelftoblame it's sock sunday with the book that's been on your tbr the longest.....i'm almost 100% sure i got this book right around the time it actually came out, so it's been on my king tbr for a really long time....i have actually been thinking about reading it soon, maybe this november? we'll see. i've definitely heard nothing but good things!! ******** i also wanted to take this opportunity to show y'all the new tattoo i got in honor of my dad!! he had this exact original tattoo on his arm, which is the initials of me and my sisters.....t*n*t (tanya*nicole*tracie). the 3 of us got them last weekend to try to carry a special part of him with us. swipe for a pic of the 4 of them, although they got a little cut off. ****** #bookstagram #books #tattoo #newtattoo #112263 #stephenking #constantreader #tbr #harrypottersocks #booksofinstagram #booknerd #bookworm #inmemorytattoo #bibliophile

It’s day 20 of the #totally90sbookchallenge and it’s how bizarre (omc): bizarre reads. this book has definitely been bizarre so far, but i love it. h.p. lovecraft, nikola tesla, steampunk machines, a diverse cast of lovable characters, and of course, those mutant cockroaches. i am actually having to force myself not to speed through this one, because i have the fold on order and i don’t want to rush through this one until that gets here. also, it’s day 20 of the #circleofbookishfriends may challenge, and it’s #socksunday i was trying to get a better pic of my socks, but that annoying tentacle just kept creeping in. don’t you hate when one of those little breaches into the beyond appears on your porch. #reading #bookworm #bibliophile #bookstagram #brosofbookstagram #maybookchallenge #bookchallenge #peterclines #peterclines14

#circleofbookishfriends challenge, day 20, #socksunday 👣👣👣👣👣👣👣👣👣👣👣👣👣👣👣
ok, i am totally cheating, but i don't own cute socks, so you get my cute bare feet!!! a rainy, gloomy afternoon after book club called for a hot cup of tea, some couch time with this classic ( which is not a favorite, but is for my reading challenge) and postponing the end of the year assessments in my bag. one more chapter, right? 🙃🤣 #bookstagram #booksandtea #booklover #booknerd #bookish #readallthebooks #readaholic #procrastination

I’m finally using the socks i got from @magnifibooks for #socksunday. bellatrix is one of my favorite baddies! not only is this little funko armed with a wand but she’s got a tiny little dagger in a sheath, too. wicked! the tom riddle candle is eucalyptus scented and is my husband’s new favorite. 💚🌿 #circleofbookishfriends #onsundayswepostpotter #slytherinsunday #bellatrixlestrange #funkorockcandy #tomriddle #bookstagram #booklover #bookreader

#circleofbookishfriends book pic challenge prompt for day 20 is #socksunday .
i must admit i had no intention of participating in this one. i'm really not much of a sock guy. but then i came across the dress socks i wore to dinner one night in vegas and...well...here ya go.
.
and the best thing about these socks? my dress shirt matched them. exactly.
.
what can i say? it's vegas 😎

there's just something magical and lushly dark about the world leigh bardugo has created in the #grishaverse that i find deliciously pulse-raising.

like the endings to the stories in this book and how they left me feeling.

do you have a favourite collection of short stories?

💃🏻do you remember when you were in junior high and when there was a dance, if you got too close to your dancing partner, a teacher would come up with a ruler and say “make room for jesus!”? no, just me? 😂 i have no idea why this popped into my mind today. *weirdo*

Hello my fellow book lovers!
🖤
🖤
🖤
i just got done with a very long and stressful weekend at work, so today is all about socks, coffee, books, and... relaxing😉
🧦☕️📚💚😮💨

i just discovered these editions of kings from hodder books, and even though they are out of print, i am still going to try to track as many as i can down because i clearly need more book editions to collect. 😂😂😂 it’s all about the hunt, people! and there’s nothing like that feeling of when you finally find that one elusive book you’ve been searching for...

any-hoo, i hope you are all having as lovely as a sunday as i am. i’m going to porch it up with a stack of books✌️
