i make things up

Wanna see my #tbr pile? I’ve been away from instagram for a week and I missed it!! Hehe. Continuing with my #30daysofbookstagrams though I’m not sure if you can do that! I’ve been clearing out my room and creating a fantastic creative space though! And this new bookcase (ikea, literally beaten together with my own two hands, because hammering it was ruining the material) is the centerpiece! Now I have all the books and DVDs I own in one place!!!! #tbrtag #bookstagram #bookish #books #bookshelftag #authorsofinstagram #author #yalit #yafiction #mayaangelou #rachelmaddow #janetmock

It’s #bannedbooksweek and looking at the tag I’m amazed by how many works of literature have been banned! Literature is a human interaction. Access to it should be an inalienable right, the expression of thoughts and ideas through it should be something education encourages and strives to make everyone capable of, for the good it does for our mental health and our social relationships. Reading makes you sane and well, gives you friends, both imaginary and real and allows us to analyse and relate and defend our lives and thoughts, which is also why #libraries should be available to everyone. Here’s to books, and their not being banned. 📖📚#authorsofinstagram #bookish #bookstagram #ireadya #ireadbannedbooks #bookgeek #books #booknerdigans

Using this #30daysofbookstagrams to introduce you to my editor, Sarah Branham, at @atriabooks. I am so, so, so lucky to have her. She’s so smart and so lovely and can equally edit GOLDEN BOY, NYT bestseller WILLIAM KENT KRUEGER and then CHILDREN OF THE JACARANDA TREE. She’s so talented and I’m so grateful she’s mine!! This is a throwback to the #GoldenBoy #booktour last year. Can’t wait to be on another one! 😉 💕 #bookstagram #authorsofinstagram #bookeditor #bookish #yafiction

I love this so much. On #35mm #film by #photographer #BeniaminoBarrese, also a lovely friend and equally an incredibly Italian person for someone who has been in London for 5 years. He’s not on instagram, he’s very analogue. It very much is me looking like me, including my scary hard neutral face. #author #authorsofinstagram #bookstagram #abigailtarttelin #bookish #booknerdigans #bookphotography

Getting this #30daysofbookstagrams in early! Just past the strike of day on day 21! I’m #currentlyreading #ZenithHotel by Oscar Coop-Phane. Yeah I know. His name sounded pretty ridiculous but I did a book event with him and he is the NICEST - and very typically French in a I’m-so-laidback-winning-a-prize-and-having-a-baby-at-25-is-just-totally-easy-look-at-me-smoking-I-didn’t-even-bother-pulling-my-tie-out-my-shirt-for-this-book-event way. Aaaanyway, lovely guy and his publisher Arcadia sent me a copy of his book to read! And I’m really enjoying it after chapter one. So night night, and shhhh I’m #reading. #bookgasm #bookish #bookstagram #authorsofinstagram #bookphotography
