Siddhartha | Hermann Hesse
post image
Pickpick

Enjoyed reading the story of a spiritual journey as I hopped around the beautiful beaches of Southern Thailand. Hesse has written a thought-provoking tale that depicts Eastern philosophy through a Western lens, which goes to show the universality of the infinite quest that makes up the human experience. I love matching up genres with travels, and am glad I learned more about Buddhist ideology and these amazing cultures. #booksaroundtheworld

Taking in the awe-inspiring beauty of Cambodia, from its vibrant and warm culture to the incredible temples~~all accompanied by this lovely little book, which is helping me dive into the spirituality of Buddhist belief and understand this all on a much deeper level. Truly humbled and in love with this side of the world! #booksaroundtheworld

Because gothic tales can be read and enjoyed in all seasons, anywhere ;) This was a captivating, short read by James! This time, it's not a tale packed with supernatural and grotesque suspension--instead it focuses on a dark, psychological progression that leaves the reader making their own assumptions as the mystery gets deeper. Fit for readers who are looking for a slow creeper rather than consistent suspenseful moments! #booksaroundtheworld

Madame Bovary (1857) | Gustave Flaubert
post image
Pickpick

"Every smile hid a yawn of boredom, every joy a curse, all pleasure satiety, and the sweetest kisses left upon your lips only the unattainable desire for a greater delight."
I finished the novel yesterday, & found myself in small town France today. I couldn't help thinking: "Would Emma Bovary grow bored of this quaint beauty as well?" While she has detestable tendencies, Emma is like no other heroine of 19th-century fiction. #booksaroundtheworld

Madame Bovary (1857) | Gustave Flaubert
post image

"And Emma tried to find out what one meant exactly in life by the words felicity, passion, rapture, that had seemed to her so beautiful in books."

I've hunkered down in Germany for a bit as I take time to research/ponder my upcoming decision. While it's hard to concentrate on anything besides my next step presently, this alluring & beautifully written novel has thus far succeeded in being my faithful refuge ♡ Long overdue! #booksaroundtheworld

The Age of Innocence | Edith Wharton
post image

"Once more it was borne on him that marriage was not the safe anchorage he had been taught to think, but a voyage on uncharted seas."

Wonderful trip in Poland~pierogi, sour soups, [so many] colorful buildings, and a dash of the always eloquent Edith Wharton. I've been taking this one slow, as I like to indulge in the richness of her style--but I can already see why it is renowned for its depiction of Victorian NY society. #booksaroundtheworld

Copenhagen | Katrine Marie Guldager
post image

This post is past due, but I just had to share! Copenhagen surprised me--it had much more of a literary atmosphere than I'd imagined. Also I stumbled across this beauty, Cafe Paludan...the most wonderful book cafe I've ever stepped foot in! There is even an antiquarian bookstore on the lower level, and all walls are covered in books. The pictures don't do it justice, but you get the point ;) You MUST go when in Copenhagen! #booksaroundtheworld

Kalalalatja On behalf of all Danes: glad you liked Copenhagen! 😄 3y
ladyclassics @Kalalalatja it was wonderful! I hope to return to see more :) 3y
