Hermes: Heavenly Days | Alice Charbin, Rachael Canepari
post image
Pickpick

What a luxurious book! But that is no surprise considering this is a book from the iconic brand, Hermès. I should expect nothing less from the fashion house.

The book is beautifully made. It has a gorgeous linen cover in the brand‘s iconic orange. The pages inside are so thick. I don‘t think I‘ve ever seen a book with pages this thick.

Gift idea for the Tolkien fan found at Costco for $14.99. Lovely faux leather cover, gilded pages, beautiful illustrations on the end pages ... bought this for my Dad, wbo introduced me to The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings.

(When I saw this, my first thought was "It's Stephen Colbert in book form!")

I happened to win this wonderful historical fiction on Readers First and I am very excited to get around to it. Did anyone else get a copy? It‘s said to be in the vein of Sarah Waters, whom I adore! And centres on the wife of the man who creates Heroin. It sounds dark and gritty! I‘m intrigued! #prettybook #bibliophile #arc #bookish #bookblogger #bookreviewer #bookworm #historicalfiction

laurieluna Hoping my copy arrives today! Won't get to it until next month though. 5y
Sophoclessweetheart @miralunasbooknook Fingers crossed 🤞 for you! 💛 This arrived yesterday! X 5y

Sophoclessweetheart @Reecaspieces I‘m not sure when it‘s out but it shouldn‘t be too far away xx 5y
Sophoclessweetheart @CoffeeCatsBooks Doesn‘t it though!? I couldn‘t resist. 5y

It looks so bright and sunny out and I want to sit in the garden and read.... but it‘s all lies, it‘s freezing out there! And with more snow expected next week! Can we just have summer yet? My current read is set in Egypt and the sunny beaches are making me feel a little warmer and brighter but, it would be much more fun outside! #arc #currentread #bookish #prettybook #beautifulbook #bibliophile #bookblogger

BookishBelle When that happens it always reminds me of the BNL song lyric “It‘s colder than it looks outside...” 5y

Sophoclessweetheart @ju.ca.no Thank you so much, my friend made it x 5y
Sophoclessweetheart @4thhouseontheleft I know right? Damn English weather hah xx 5y
Sophoclessweetheart @BookishBelle I don‘t know that one but I‘d definitely agree 😹 5y
catebutler I keep thinking spring is almost here and then it snows again. It‘s currently pouring outside, which means it will turn to snow again.... here‘s to warm weather hopefully around the corner! 🤞🏼 5y
Sophoclessweetheart @catebutler fingers crossed 🤞 We Have more snow predicted for next week but I am so over winter now and it‘s usually my favourite season 😅 5y
catebutler @Wanderingwithwords I normally dread winter, but I‘ve been trying to be better about embracing the seasons. We had a relatively mild winter this year, which was nice, but I do hate when it snows heavily, everything just shuts down. Spring is one of my favourite seasons, so I‘ve been watching for the signs. Hopefully the snow won‘t be too bad for you this next week! 5y
Sophoclessweetheart @catebutler We‘ve had a mild winter too which was a nice change. I love the snow so getting some was nice but it‘s getting crazy now. 😹😹 5y

I‘m currently suffering “women‘s problems” so I‘m snuggling in a ball with my current read, buying masses of WWII fiction/nonfiction online and waiting for my new clothes to arrive. I justify my actions by buying my daughter new clothes and books too, it‘s not unjust spending if we both get treats, right? #historicalfiction #WorldWar #arc #allisonandbusby #currentread #prettybook #bibliophile #bookish #beautifulbook

TrishB Sounds perfectly acceptable to me 👍🏻 5y
Sophoclessweetheart @TrishB Wonderful. I like how you think 😘😹💛 5y
laurieluna Yep! Retail therapy is the best during times like this! 😊 5y
Sophoclessweetheart @miralunasbooknook Definitely so! I feel much better knowing I have fresh new clothes and books 🤣💛 5y

Another ARC for my next read, this one a historical fiction from Allison and Busby. It hits stores April 19th 2018. This one is one of my anticipated releases for this year so I‘m honoured and grateful to be able to read it early. It is of course Tapestry of War by Jane MacKenzie, is this on your radar? #historicalfiction #prettybook #bookish #bibliophile #bookworm #beautifulbook #bookmark #WWII #allisonandbusby #arc

4/5 star. This book is so so beautiful and so simple. It embodies the joy of nature and love and the relationship between grandparent and grandchild. It shows the child in the heart of an old lady and the maturity in a small child. I enjoyed every second. Such a light and sweet read for when you‘re feeling down. #tovejansson #prettybook #bibliophile #bookish #booklover #bookblogger #bookworm #bookreviewer

Tamra I‘m looking forward to it. 5y
Sophoclessweetheart @Tamra It‘s magical! I can‘t wait to hear what you think x 5y
wanderlustforwords Tove is incredible. Her stories permeate powerfully yet quietly. 5y

Sophoclessweetheart @wanderlustforwords I couldn‘t have worded that more wonderfully correct. They really do. So beautiful. X 5y
wanderlustforwords ☺️I just noticed how similar our Litsy names are. 😂 @Wanderingwithwords 5y
batsy I love this book 💛 It has a bit of The Lost Garden feel, @Tamra (but no romance 😆); look forward to your thoughts! 5y
Tamra @batsy 😂😂 I have a ridiculously complicated relationship with romance in books, with outrageous exceptions! I was drawn to this one for the nature focus, so I have high hopes. I also really enjoy quiet & contemplative, so long as we‘re not contemplating overwrought Wagneresque romancy angst.😝 By the way, are you on Goodreads? I‘ve decided to actually use it now and would love to read your reviews! 5y
batsy @Tamra Hahaha! My early books were what was easily available, so a lot of repeat readings of Jane Eyre and a lot of Austen, and I think that trained me for a certain kind of romance and certain kind of overwrought sensibility 😂😂 Yes I'm on GR: www.goodreads.com/subabat — would love to read yours, as well! 5y
Tamra @batsy 👍🏾 5y
Tamra @batsy I had no idea you were an author as well! 👏🏾👏🏾 5y
batsy @Tamra Oh gosh, that's embarrassing because I've only had some stuff published in anthologies and the editors added me in as "author", far cry from actual Author ?? 5y
Sophoclessweetheart @wanderlustforwords 😹😹 I noticed when I followed you on IG. Quite a funny coincidence x 5y
Sophoclessweetheart @batsy I haven‘t read The Lost Garden but it is a great book 💛 5y
