WordPress apparently ate the first version I wrote of this, so here’s attempt two at writing a mix between a book haul and a general life update post.
Life Update & Book Haul!
While I’ve been gone from blogging, I’ve been working on re-establishing my Instagram, @novellique, into a theme and profile page that I like and enjoy working on.
Reading the cyborg and cyberpunk books for next semester at university has driven me towards reading more sci-fi books, including Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams and Alastair Reynold’s Revelation Space. In another Waterstones trip I also picked up a constellation notebook and a 2018/19 diary which I hope to start bullet journaling in.
I got a polaroid camera for my birthday – it’s an Instax Mini 9 and I love it, especially for taking the occasional picture of plants and, of course, family and friends. I’ve started constructing a string of fairy lights with the best selection of pictures I’ve taken so far – I’ll be sharing it on Instagram Stories once I can find the right lighting conditions.
If you have an Instagram account about reading, writing or blogging please drop it in the comments and I’ll give you a follow. I’m also looking at setting up a DM group for book bloggers – let me know if this is something you would be interested in!
EDIT 22/06/18: I’ve been having an issue with the editing software I’m using for my Instagram, so I’ve decided I’ll be screenshotting from my Instagram rather than embedding them in case I decide to re-edit/upload some of the pictures featured here.
Have you bought any books recently? Let me know in the comments!
