Why did you start your Bookstagram?

I was always one with a book in her hands, mostly everywhere. There came a time where I stopped reading and I was busy with other stuff in life. To get back to reading, I decided to blog about it, and that’s when I found Bookstagram and it’s awesome community.

Where are you from?

I’m originally from Sudan but I was born, raised and living in Abu Dhabi.

 

 

What do you want your Instagram to bring to the world?

My Instagram is more than just about reading books, and encouraging others to do the same. It’s also a chance for me to inspire and get inspired.

Fun Fact about you:

When i’m not working or reading, I teach Zumba.

Favorite Bookstagrammers:

@theguywiththebook @everlasting.charm @kath_reads

Favorite Books and Authors:

Agatha Christie, Sidney Sheldon, Colleen Hoover, Nicholas Sparks

 

 

Fictional Crush: Mr. Darcy, always and forever.

TBR List:

WOW!! There’s just so many to share. That’s a question that shouldn’t be asked of a bookworm *laughs

What’s your special approach to content?

When I’m talking about books or recommending them, I like to share some poetry I wrote.

Aesthetic / Instagram page theme:

I like to post pictures of my bookshelf, where I read, the cafes I like to hang out in. I’m also a Friends fan, so I have quite the collection of their merchandise.

 

 

How often do you post?

I love to post daily.

What does your Bookstagram mean to you?

It’s a page where I share my reading, my musings, connect with others. It’s a great community.

Favorite Bookstore:

Magrudy’s and Kinokuniya

Who would you have supply you with a lifetime of books?

Berkley Romance Books. @berkleyromance  I just love their books and covers.

Author to take a selfie with:

Colleen Hooover @colleenhoover

Favorite book cover:

Faker by Sarah Smith which I actually made a replica of.

 

 

Book you have claimed to have read that you didn’t?

None.

When did you know you had made it as a Bookstagrammer?

You kind of know when you get a lot of messages from all around, loving your page, asking for book recommendations, and all kinds of questions.

 

 

Favorite fandoms:

NONE

Advice for aspiring Bookstagrammers:

Have fun, read, don’t worry about numbers. And you can always say no to a book from a publisher if you are not interested. Don’t say yes just cause you’re offered one. Read what you love.

Midnight Sun Memes

With Midnight Sun out the Twilight meme rennaisance has taken on a whole new dimension. Are we excited?

 

The Wait is Over

I remember reading the first chapter of Midnight Sun back in the day, and then almost immediately finding out that was it. Twelve years alter, does any of us know what to expect?

 

 

I’ve Only Known Edward for Five Minutes

There’s no way his blood tasted good. Also, where is Carlisle Cullen now? I’ve gotta say, I didn’t pay that much attention to Edward’s death the first time, but it sure seems like a statement now.

 

 

Where Is He?

How much Pattinson hated working on Twilight is a meme in itself, what are they going to do if they want to make a movie? Things are staying crazy in the Twilight fandom, that’s for sure.

 

 

Say it Out Loud

Does anyone else remember the twilight parody where she’s like…. ‘you’re a mermaid’…. or did I hallucinate that?

 

 

Finally

Y’know, Stephanie Meyer is shockingly chill for a famous author. She didn’t start a fuss about Fifty Shades of Gray, she wasn’t dramatic when she pulled Midnight Sun the first time, and now here it is.

 

You Don’t Have To

I haven’t been in the Twilight fandom in a long time (no judgement), but I kind of feel like I have to read it. What am I going to do, just sit here wondering?

 

It Never Ends

I kind of love that he’s going to be Batman. I don’t know if it’s gonna work out, but I just like watching it all roll out. I think it’s gonna get even crazier.

 

I’m Confused

This guy really said I don’t want to kill this girl, so time to hang out when she’s as vulnerable as possible. Frankly, it’s one of the most yikes things about Twilight, but you’ve got to love the decision making.

 

Good Advice

Iconic. I know I already said something about Spanish Flu, but it’s just so funny to me the idea of Edward’s first and only descriptor being that he basically died of Spanish Flu. He’s a vampire! I just like understatements.

HBO Max Is Streaming All 8 Harry Potter Films!

HBO Max started streaming it’s content which also means that the Harry Potter films are all streaming on the app. Even the sequel to the spin off franchise, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, are available to watch on the app.

This is great news for all Harry Potter fans! Also for WarnerBros who have fought for the streaming rights for all of their library. Harry Potter especially, considering all of the films in total grossed two billon dollars. However, the films weren’t in the original plans for HBO Max due to NBCUniversial having the cable rights to the franchise. Now both companies have the rights to the franchise until 2025! How amazing is that, we can stream them online and on cable. It’s the best of both worlds.

There are other great titles on HBO Max, like popular sitcoms, Friends and The Big Bang Theory. The Lord of the Rings franchise and DC’s Wonder Woman are available as well. I am excited to finally watch the Big Bang Theory, and even more excited that I can stream the Harry Potter movies online. I just binged all the movies and the qualities of my DVDs aren’t as great as they used to be, so this couldn’t have come at a greater time. I was just about to purchase digital copies and now I can just stream them for $14.99 a month!
