This was such a perfectly balanced book, so good that I wanted to pick it up again immediately afterwards; not to mention break my rule of purchasing a second copy. Pip is such a lovable character, not at first mind you; over time he is transformed mentally and emotionally from a sensitive and mistreated child, to a selfish, ambitious young man into a man of...you'll have to read to find out. Though I will say this much, older Pip is beautiful to behold. Furthermore, the side characters were unique as only Dickens can create them, sometimes wicked but mostly endearing. I particularly loved Joe Gargery who is the dearest man and The Aged who must be one of my favourite characters of all time. I couldn't wait for the two of them to appear in every chapter and they warmed my heart while bringing laughter and tears in equal measure. This is a book possessing deep feeling to be treasured and read over and over.

Godly-Authenticity is the image and identity that God knew before He formed you in the womb.

More than anything God desires for us to entreat him for it and carry it proudly.

Have you discovered yours? Drop a number that best places you in your journey.

1. I’m still unfolding.
2. I have embraced mine.
3. I’m living proudly + encouraging others to do the same.

Great expectations

영화관에서 보는 첫영화였던

여전히 심장이 떨리는 
그리고 ost 전부 아름답지만
넘버원은

Tori amos - siren
어째... 매년 듣는거 같기도 하고 긴가민가 
내맘속 저좡

📚💁‍♀️ Friends 💁‍♀️📚 I wanted to post today, but I didn't have any ideas. Then this wonderful bookmark came in the mail, from @rachelkovaciny and my heart swelled up to three times its normal size. 😊 This was right after I watched the George Floyd memorial service and observed the 8 minutes and 46 seconds of silence. Wow.

Sometimes you are not sure how your faith in humanity can be restored. Then you see an eloquent speaker talk about time, and receive a lovely, thoughtful note in the mail. Thank you, Rachel! Look at the quote! "There are no faster or firmer friendships than those formed between people who love the same books." Humans are malleable. And resilient. We change. I know I have changed over the past week. And I will keep on changing.

I hope that everyone has had time to reflect on what they want their actions to be going forward. That reflection doesn't end, but it is important to begin. If we all could change just our own little sphere, think how powerful that would be.

I am looking forward to a day off tomorrow. I am going to start Great Expectations. I am wrung out completely from working in the heat this week and I am off now until Saturday. There have been some other difficulties going on and I severely need the time off to recharge. I am just hoping I can finally settle down and read.

These past two weeks have been so stressful. Pandemic, civil unrest, curfew, heat wave, working outside in 90+ temps? Then my therapist is leaving! No! Bad timing, man. Enough. I may have been quiet on here, but only because I am beat.

Tell me the name of a book that you bonded over with someone! Tag them if you like. We all know books bring people together. I want to see the real live evidence of that.

No justice, no peace.

#MissHavishamsbookclub I am trying another Dickens! This one is a brick. I am determined.

#currentlyNotreading : Is it just me or you too have a hard time figuring out which book to read next? .
I completed my previous book, and have spent the day deciding what to read next. So I came down to these 3 books. Coincidentally, these 3 books all have a nice story to them. .
The book Great Expectations was something I found in my Dad's old books and it's super old. One of the pages had the date Aug '96 on it. I'm so used to reading present writing style that this one seems quite hard. It's different than my usual  books. But that doesn't lessen the interest in it. I'm surely planning to read it sometime soon, whenever I have enough time to explore more of that style. And having an old copy of a  Charles Dickens book feels like having an ancient gem.😍 .
.
40 Rules of Love was the first book we brought,  and I can never forget how much I fell in love with it. It's speaks of a next level spirituality which touches my heart. I have already read this once. One can't just read and go through it, u have to give this books it's time.  To properly comprehend and feel what this book speaks you have to give your time to it, and it's so worth it. It touches the soul. I am in Love with this book, had and will be. Since I wanna read it after I clear my mind from everything,  now doesn't feel like the time. .
Open House is a book I haven't read, and it's also something I find interesting these days. I knw that it's a romance and fun. But as much as I've heard abt it , it sounds quite good. So, maybe this is something I'll be reading next. It's seems simple and that's something I wanna read these days. Will surely keep y'all updated on it.📖

Next up is the GORGEOUS Rhiarna Hall who will be playing Biddy in Great Expectations. Cannot wait for her to put Pip to rights. Here is what Rhi had to say about her role:
“Being Biddy has made me want to educate myself on political issues”

We think it's important everyone educates themselves politically and love Rhi for giving us this message. ❤🎬 #greatexpectations

"There was something very comfortable in having plenty of stationery." Charles Dickens, Great Expectations (1861)

Charles Dickens is one of my favourite writers of all time and this has to be one of my favourite quotes because which teacher doesn't like hoards and hoards of stationery?? Rose-gold was my theme for last year and to be honest, it looks like it's going to make a comeback this year too 😁

There is a difference between setting up goals and having flase expectations. When you don't have expectations, you will overjoyed when you succeed and if you fail, you'll learn from it rather than being sad (cuz you didn't have any expectations!) That's the beauty of it ❤

Set your goals, work real hard for it but be ready for everything, every possible situation. Life's not a fairytale.
