Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

6185

Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine’s father. After Mr Earnshaw’s death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine’s brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries. The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature.


 

When The Sleeper Wakes by HG Wells

80939

Graham, an 1890s radical pamphleteer who is eagerly awaiting the twentieth century and all the advances it will bring, is stricken with insomnia. Finally resorting to medication, he instantly falls into a deep sleep that lasts two hundred years. Upon waking in the twenty-second century to a strange and nightmarish place, he slowly discovers he is master of the world, revered by an adoring populace who consider him their leader. Terrified, he escapes from his chamber seeking solace—only to realize that not everyone adores him, some even wish to harm him.


 

The Messenger by Douglas Niles

677864

Exiled in disgrace to the harsh land called the Icereach, Kerrick, a Silvanesti elf, encounters a group of barbarian villagers that is making a determined stand against the encroachment of the remnants of a powerful ogre empire that is out to seize control of the frozen world.


 

The Celtic Twilight: Faerie and Folklore by W.B Yeats

194204

Best known for his poetry, William Butler Yeats (1865–1939) was also a dedicated exponent of Irish folklore. Yeats took a particular interest in the tales’ mythic and magical roots. The Celtic Twilight ventures into the eerie and puckish world of fairies, ghosts, and spirits. “This handful of dreams,” as the author referred to it, first appeared in 1893, and its title refers to the pre-dawn hours, when the Druids performed their rituals. It consists of stories recounted to the poet by his friends, neighbors, and acquaintances. Yeats’ faithful transcription of their narratives includes his own visionary experiences, appended to the storytellers’ words as a form of commentary.


 

The Body Snatcher by Robert Louis Stevenson

28380171

A young man studying medicine in Edinburgh is asked by his professor to be responsible for receiving the cadavers to be dissected by the school’s students. Though he knows many are stolen from graves, he keeps his silence. Then one night he recognizes one of the cadavers as the victim of murder. Instead of turning in the culprit, he allows himself to be drawn deeper into the gruesome intrigue. But justice has the last laugh when the evidence of the man’s crimes – evidence he thought long since dissected and disposed of – mysteriously resurfaces to his everlasting horror.

These are all places I would really like to go. Some I have visited before, some are completely new to me. The one thing stopping me is having literally no money, but they are definite goals in the future when it comes to travel.

  1. Mongolia. I really want to go see the Golden Eagle hunters, I want to sleep in a yurt, I want to travel through their amazing landscape and experience traditional Mongolian food.
  2. Russia. There are so many places there I would like to visit, including Moscow, the glass beach of Vladivostok, Chelyabinks, Saint Petersburg and so on. Taking the Transsiberian railroad could bring me to Vladivostok at least.
  3. Orkney Islands. I want to go to most the Islands surrounding the United Kingdom. It’s also cool that the largest city is called Kirkwall, the same as the city in Dragon Age 2.
  4. Scotland. I’ve been there before but I haven’t seen too much of it. Our plane landed in Edinburgh and then we drove up to Aviemore to stay there for a few days. Then back to Edinburgh. I want to go to Loch Ness, to Glasgow, to Aberdeen and everywhere else. I also want to experience New Years Eve there again, we danced, drank, had a generally good time.
  5. Ireland. I’ve heard so many good things about Dublin and I really want to go there to see for myself what it is all about.
  6. Lithuania. My cousin often travels to Vilnius and it looks like such a pretty city! I always love looking at her pictures of the city and listen to her stories and I really want to go there.
  7. Latvia. Riga sounds like a great city and I really want to explore it. All of the pictures I’ve seen shows that his has some amazing architecture.
  8. Poland. One of my exes is from Poland and he told me so many amazing stories. I’ve been to Poland before, but only to Gdansk and Krakow. I really want to explore the rest of it.

Where would you like to go?

I’m so bad at posts like these! I never know what to write, because my clothes are just plain and that’s the way I like it. 90% of it is black so it doesn’t really show up too well either in pictures.

Anyways, what I’m wearing is a powder pink hoodie from H&M, a black tunic from H&M and my crescent moon necklace (from Wish) just to add in some color. That’s my solution for everything too, too much black? Wear a necklace. Seems to work well.

12

Pairing that with black leggings from H&M. I hate wearing proper pants so black leggings is the way to go. That or jeggings or treggings or whatever they are called.

13

And lastly some super cute winter shoes I bought off of eBay. They cost around 100 NOK ( roughtly £10 ) and they are so soft and warm. They’re black with white fur inside, and they have black bows on the side. I don’t think they will be great for wet, sloppy snow but they will work when it’s more dry outside.

What are you wearing today?

  • Visiting Walt Disney World in Florida when I was 6 years old. I remember seeing a 3D muppets show, watching the fireworks and eating so much candy floss that I felt sick. We also rented a house and there was a massive pool there.
  • Spending the summers in a caravan, having all my friends around, being able to go swimming whenever we felt like it. As we got older it turned into getting drunk and going swimming instead. Still fun.
  • Visiting my grandparents during the summer. Their garden was so big, and they always had Rhubarb ready to be picked and eaten with some sugar. They also had a small pond where the birds would come and bathe in and we loved watching that.
  • The year when I was in the accident that injured my leg for life (1999), I got so many birthday presents.. I’ve never received so many before and I remember being so happy that so many people were thinking of me when I was in the hospital.
  • Receiving my favorite cat back in 2005. I had found his mother famished the year before and gave her to some people who sheltered cats. They nursed her back to health, discovered she was with kittens and then during the summer of 2005 we got her back along with my favorite little guy. He’s not so small anymore but still my favorite out of the three I have.

  • Going on Christmas holidays to Tenerife. We wen’t about every other year from 2000~ish to 2013. I miss going there, it was nice to gather the family and go somewhere together. Now my brother is married and has moved far away so we can’t do like a traditional family holiday anymore.
  • Christmas Day lunches at my grandparents place. Every year the whole family would gather in their house for a Christmas Day lunch. It was always salmon, fully roasted and lovely. Sadly, both of my grandparents have passed away so we don’t really continue the tradition, it doesn’t feel right without them.
  • Visiting the grocery store with my grandma. She would always buy us these small lollipops and they were so good. Mum wouldn’t let us have candy on the weekdays but grandma always kept it a secret.

 

What are your favorite childhood memories?
