“Of course, there must be lots of Magic in the world,” he said wisely one day, “but people don't know what it is like or how to make it. Perhaps the beginning is just to say nice things are going to happen until you make them happen...” . . . One word to describe this classic: BEAUTIFUL. . . . The ending made me cry! 😭 . . . #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #bibliophile #bookish #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #bookquotes #thesecretgarden #franceshodgsonburnett #classic

“Wendy,” Peter Pan continued in a voice that no woman has ever yet been able to resist, “Wendy, one girl is more use than twenty boys.” 🍃 . . “Second star to the right, and straight on ‘til morning.” 🌠 . . Peter Pan is absolutely one of my most loved classic children's books. I loved both the animated and live-action films. I mean, who didn't have a huge childhood crush on Jeremy Sumpter as the boy who refuses to grow up? I had watched that movie a million times! . . And I adored the book so much. I loved the tales about the Neverland, the fairies, the mermaids, the pirates, and the grown-ups. Makes me wish that I never grew up. . . What are your #top5classicchildrensbooks? Mine will be: 1. Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie 2. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott 3. A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett 4. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett 5. The Little Mermaid (Selected Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen) #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #bibliophile #bookish #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #bookquotes #jmbarrie #peterpan

Maybe it's the color of your eyes, or the cuteness of your smile. Perhaps it's the perfect shape of your nose, or the strong lines of your jaw. Or probably it's the puffiness around your eyes when you wake up in the morning, and your honey-colored skin. It's the dirt in your feet when you play outside, and your immense desire to feel alive. It's your intelligence that always leaves me in awe, although sometimes you annoy me too. It's the funny jokes, and the silly faces you make to cheer me up on a crappy day. I am very bad in writing poetry, but you also deserve a poem from me. I love you and all these things about you. — Yna, 6/7/18

“Voivode of Wallachia. The Prince of Darkness. A fist clenched around the area near my heart. Voivode of Wallachia… Prince of Wallachia. The title rolled inside my mind until it landed on history lessons and staked itself to the area where fear lived. Vlad Ţepeş. Vlad the Impaler. Some called him Dracula. Son of the Dragon. So many names for the medieval prince who’d slaughtered more men, women, and children than I dared to think of. His method of killing was how he received the surname Ţepeş. Impaler. Outside the Kingdom of Romania, his family were rumored to be devilish creatures, immortal and bloodthirsty. But from what little I’d learned, the people of Romania felt very differently. Vlad was a folk hero who’d fought for his countrymen, using any means necessary to defeat his enemies. Something other countries and their beloved kings and queens did as well. Monsters were in the eye of the beholder. And no one wanted to discover their hero was the true villain of the story.” . . . I love historical fiction. I love myths and legends. I love this book! #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #bibliophile #bookish #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #bookquotes #kerrimaniscalco

“What people never understand is that depression isn't about the outside; it's about the inside. Something inside me is wrong.

"But a mermaid has no tears, and therefore she suffers so much more." — Hans Christian Andersen, The Little Mermaid . . . Don't you just love the original version more than the Disney one?

"There are many Beths in the world, shy and quiet, sitting in corners till needed, and living for others so cheerfully that no one sees the sacrifices till the little cricket on the hearth stops chirping, and the sweet, sunshiny presence vanishes, leaving silence and shadow behind." . . . I so love the March sisters. And I think I am a little more of Beth and a little bit of Jo. ❤ . . . I couldn't take quality pictures because I have been so busy lately. My graduation is approaching and I'm so excited!!! I am quite amazed by myself because despite all this commotion going on in my life, I could still find time to read books after books. 😂 . . . I was tagged by @wildbookbabe a long time ago to do the #vaptvupt (whatever that means 😂) tag . . . Favorite Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Fantasy Last Read: The Problem With Forever Currently Reading: My Heart and Other Black Holes Next Read: The Secret Garden Tea or Coffee: None Savory or sweet: Sweet Heroes or villains: Sometimes both. . . . #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #bibliophile #bookish #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #bookquotes #classic #littlewomen

"We have big, beautiful brains. We invent things that fly. Fly. We write poetry. You probably hate poetry, but it’s hard to argue with ‘Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate’ in terms of sheer beauty. We are capable of big lives. A big history. Why settle? Why choose the practical thing, the mundane thing? We are born to dream and make the things we dream about." . . . #bookquotes #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #bibliophile #bookish #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #thesunisalsoastar #nicolayoon

"WHEN GIVEN THE CHOICE BETWEEN BEING RIGHT OR BEING KIND, CHOOSE KIND." . . . This book is very wonderful. It teaches you a lot of things and it all comes down to the most important thing of all: Just be kinder than necessary. It doesn't matter what you look like or what you say; the kindness you show to others is how people are going to remember you. When I think of it, I just realize that I haven't been exactly kind to others lately. I've messed up. I've hurt the feelings of the person I love. I blurted out hurtful words. I fought with my sister. I have become so selfish, so self-centered. And I don't have a valid excuse for that. I feel bad, I feel sorry. Being kind... It's supposed to be easy. I'll work on it. I'll work on myself. I don't want to be remembered in the most negative way. If a ten year old kid could be kind to others despite the universe being so cruel to him, how could I not? . . . #bookquotes #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #bibliophile #bookish #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #wonder #rjpalacio

"Clare, I want to tell you, again, I love you. Our love has been the thread through the labyrinth, the net under the high-wire walker, the only real thing in this strange life of mine that I could ever trust. Tonight I feel that my love for you has more density in this world than I do, myself: as though it could linger on after me and surround you, keep you, hold you." . . . I am in love with this book. This is the kind of book you can't get over with for days, for weeks, or maybe for ever. This is so beautifully written; almost every page had me thinking, smiling, crying, wondering, dreaming. There was a book out there as imaginatively, as beautiful, as creative as this one and I didn't know until I picked it up at the bookstore. If I didn't, I would be missing out on one of the greatest works of all times. Definitely one of the best books I have ever read. . . . #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #bibliophile #bookish #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #thetimetravelerswife

My mom taught me how to love reading. . One of my most vivid memories of my mom is when she would bring me and my younger sister to the bookstore when we were little. . She would let us explore the whole place. We would run all over the place and browse everything we saw there. She would let us sit on the floor and read children books while she looked for something— a cookbook, gardening book, or any book or magazine of some sort. . At times, she would buy us the book we wanted. Be it a book with Barbie paper dolls or a fairytale book. . I remember when I was maybe in 1st grade, she bought us this orange colored workbook on the Filipino values, teaching the little kids how to be good kids. I think it was entitled something like this: "Wastong Ugali at Mabuting Asal" and I read it, studied it, answered it, carried it everywhere as if it was an assignment and my teacher would collect it later. . Maybe, I just want to thank my mom for my wonderful childhood days spent in the aisles of the bookstores we went to. If it weren't for her, I would have never discovered a world full of adventures that I saw through the pages of the books that I read. She nurtured the bookworm in me. . I'll make sure to bring her a book the next time I visit her. . I miss you, Ma. And I am very sorry. . . . #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #bibliophile #bookish #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #nationalbookstore #lakingnational

THIS MIGHT BE A SPOILER. DO NOT READ THE TEAR-STAINED PAGES. . . . That moment when you finish a beautiful book with a very sad ending and you just curl up on your bed and can't do anything as though your entire body stops functioning and everything is hurting and nothing can seem to make you feel better and then you just let sadness eat you away. . . .
