Summary from Goodreads:
Sean Johnson’s life as a small-town farmhand has been nothing but predictable, but when he meets Sophia Hillingdon at the local animal sanctuary, she gets him out of an eighteen-year rut, away from the mundane existence on the farm, and a grieving, drunken father.
Sophia is the first person who understands him and makes him believe that he might get out of their small town, who tells him, he has the potential to be whoever he wants to be and do whatever he wants to do.
But as their relationship unfolds, it is the most devastating of news that will change both of them forever.
I hadn’t been anywhere, but my mind had been everywhere. That’s how I felt that summer. Or more precisely, that’s how Sophia had made me feel by the time summer neared its conclusion. The months of July and August had followed identical patterns to June in that we rarely spent a day apart. We rode with Violet across the Suffolk countryside, sometimes for miles on end, often stopping by at local pubs. Then it would be Saturday. That was the best day of all for there was no work on Sunday, which meant dancing with Tom and Jessica until our bodies could no longer stand. We drank, we laughed, and most nights after, we made love as we tip-toed up the stairs of my father’s house. I was obsessed with everything about her. Yes, Sophia Hillingdon, the girl I’d known for barely a few months was the girl I now wanted to spend the rest of my life with. And though we often drove each other crazy, we soon laughed and made up as if nothing happened. It often puzzled me as to why Sophia found our fights so amusing seconds after we were hot from the exertion of spouting obscenities at each other. Red-faced, she’d often say, “You drive me mad Sean. But, you know something? That’s just how I like it.”
“Why?” I’d ask.
“Us,” she would say. “I love how angry you make me because…. Well, I’m obsessed with you… even our arguments sound oddly beautiful.”

Ever since I started my account on Instagram, I was completely astounded by the beauty of #bookstagram. Before, the only hype for a bookish person is to create a book blog and fill them with book reviews. Right now, readers from all over the world express their passion for reading with boundless creativity.
And it’s not just the amazing photos, #bookstagram can also be considered as an active friendly community who shares the same passion for book reading. Everyone is welcome to join the conversation.
For my Friday Features, I’m presenting this week’s topbookstragrammers to follow. I’ve chosen the three rising stars in the #bookstagram world to start my first ever Friday Features this August.
As we all know, a tattoo is a perfect way of expressing ourselves artistically for a lifetime and having to brand yourself as a proud book lover, choosing a design or famous quotes from your favorite book would do its magic. So, what do you think are the perfect tattoo designs for book lovers?
He stated that “What if…” someone close to me needed it? I’ll spend the rest of my life regretting that I wasn’t able to help out.
I do agree with him, and more importantly, I respected that decision not only because he is my father, but also I understand his reason.
As an obedient daughter, I didn’t pursue having a tattoo. Maybe it’s also because I didn’t want it that bad and love my inked free skin that much. But that doesn’t stop me from admiring those pretty tattoo designs that promote reading.
Agreeing to “not having a tattoo” doesn’t stop me from admiring those book lover inspired tattoos and there are so many pretty ones out there that I can only dream about having on my skin.
As an example, I saw this video on Facebook and this back reveal is really stunning and has a great impact on me. Why? well because it really felt like I look like the girl on the tattoo. Several of my friends told me so too after sharing the video. Weird right? ( No, I’m not showing you my picture… lol)
Anyway, you can find the image of the video on the right, I can’t embed the video here for some reason I don’t know… gorgeous, isn’t it? I think it perfectly fits every bookworm out there who adore books all the time.
As for our “Let’s talk, Thursday” question:
If you could get any quote tattooed on your body, what would it be?
My answer would be George R.R Martin’s quote…
A readers lived a thousand lives before he dies, a man who never reads lives only once.
Add the quote: “I lived a thousand lives” below
Well, not exactly that quote but the rephrased one. I relate to this quote because I fully enjoy being “abducted” by the books I’m reading. Whenever I read, it feels like I’m living there… like jumping inside and breathing and re-living the words.
I lived a thousand lives.
If given the chance… and the courage to have my skin inked… I’ll choose both of the tattoos I featured here.
What about you? What’s your ideal quote tattoo?
If you have good thoughts… they will shine out of your face life sunbeams and you’ll always be lovely. – Matilda by Ronald Dahl
