What’s your favourite historical library? Which one would you love to visit?

While I was in Ottawa I went on a free tour of the parliament building and got to take a look at the many beautiful rooms inside, including the senate and of course my favourite, the library of parliament which was stunning!

The library and a couple of other parliament building will be closing up due to renovations starting in January for 10 years so if you haven’t been I suggest you go before then.

I recently went to see @penguinshopto’s amazing pop-up display of #ImAfraidOfMen by @vivekshraya, this book according to @teganandsara is an essential reading for everyone and I couldn’t agree more. #PRHCPartner #ad
If you are from Toronto or just stopping by, I highly recommend checking out the @PenguinShopTo as the display is only up until end of September.
I finished this book in one sitting, and I can’t even begin to explain Shraya’s writing — it’s so brutally honest, powerfully raw and affecting. Throughout her life, she has endured acts of cruelty and violence for being too feminine as a boy and not feminine enough as a girl. In just 85 short pages she “delivers important records of the damage caused by misogyny, homophobia, and transphobia, releasing trauma from a body that has always refused to assimilate.”
Are you planning on reading this book or have you already read it? I’d really like to know your thoughts!

With summer coming to an end, I was glad that I got to visit Ottawa with @ottawatourism before the cold weather comes. I had a great time strolling through the streets, eating at cute cafes and checking out the amazing indie bookshops like @octopusbooks.

Since autumn and cozy days are fast approaching, a good book that sets a fall mood is essential. Which is why I recommend picking up #TheEnglishPatient by Canadian author Michael Ondaatje #ad — it is a story of love and war in the final moments of the Second World War.

I’ve finally got around to finishing the audiobook for Anne of Green Gables and without a doubt it is my favourite childhood classics. Anne is a kindred spirit and a lovely friend, I appreciate L.M Montgomery for creating such a great heroine filled with loving traits but also some big flaws like holding grudges for 5 years.
Oh, and don’t get me started on the adorable character that is Gilbert Blythe, he is such a sweetheart and his relationship with Anne is so cutee.

How is everything? What are your current reads? Is anyone participating in the #booktubeathon?

I was on a short break because we are moving, but without further ado here are couple of facts about me I wanted to share:
- I’m 23, I started school when I was only 3 because of my late December bday and my favourite colour is blue.
- My love of books began when I was old enough to read because my mom used to take me to the library very often.
- I want to travel and go on many more road trips now that I’m done with university. - I am currently working on my first novel, but I have so many ideas and I really need to stick to one.
- I recently have become obsessed with K-dramas/BTS/Kpop so I’m trying to learn Korean.
- English is my second language but I speak it more often than Farsi & Dari (my first language).
- I was born and raised in Canada, but my parents are from Afghanistan.
- I really want to teach English aboard so I’m thinking about going to japan for a year.
- I studied pharmaceutical biotechnology in university (graduated last year) but I’ve always love English literature and wanted to be a writer since I was 7.
What’s your name, where are you from and what’s one interesting fact about yourself?

What’s your favourite childhood book or classic?

For me, I’ve been pretty obsessed with #anneofgreengables for as long as I can remember. I used to watch the cartoon version when I was a kid and now I’m pretty in love with the recent adaptation #annewithane which I think is more of a reimagined version. I am also listening to the audiobooks and reading the biography of L.M Montgomery right now.

For me, I am at my happiest while being surrounded by nature. Taking long walks in endless forests, and putting your bare feet into the cold waters of rushing rivers when the sun is out and shining. Witnessing magnificent waterfalls, making camp fires and laying out on the ground watching the starry night sky.
Most of all, my favourite part is the quietness and peace of mind you feel while you are with nature. When you stop and look around, this earth we live on is pretty amazing and it’s crucial we take care of it.

What’s a book that’s been on your #tbrpile for as long as you can remember?
For me, that book is Wuthering Heights by #emilybrontë. I’ve been meaning to read for the longest time but I still haven’t picked it up even though I have multiple copies of it.
I think one reason that keeps me from reading it is that many people say it’s a book you either love or hate — and knowing me I’d probably be the latter. Also, I have a hard time getting into classics because of the different writing style which is why I really like watching movie adaptations of classics since it helps me understand the book a bit more.

Have you ever seen an outdoor bookshelf/library in your city or while you were travelling?

Calista @insidethebookreader and I stumbled across this cute little bookshelf outside while leaving @fikakensington on friday. There was also a booth next to the shelves selling handmade jewellery and lots of other shops near by.

Who read books to me when I was growing up, even though English wasn’t his first language and after encouraged me to stay up late reading myself.

Are you good at picking gifts out for loved ones? What do you usually gift?
When it comes to giving gifts, I can honestly say that I’m not so great at it —but thankfully the @chaptersindigo Father’s Day shop got me covered with handpicked items to choose from. I obviously got my dad the gift that never goes out of style: reading 📖
With Father's Day coming up next Sunday, I picked out these two books 📚(that we both can enjoy) and this awesome camper mug for my tea ☕️ loving dad.

Where do you typically like to read? Before I graduated, I used to always read on the bus while I commuted to university.
In the winter, I love reading on the couch or in my room. In the autumn & spring, I love reading in a cafe or outside in the park. In the summer, I always try my best to visit the beach/lakeside and read by the water. It’s especially nice if you stay until sunset.

Do you like reading different genres when the seasons change? Do you have a specific genre you read in the spring time?
I like to read classics and reread books in the spring, contemporary or fun light reads in the summer, autumn is for thrillers and horror books, and I love reading historical fiction or fantasy novels.

Have you learned something new since starting your @instagram account —if so then what have you learned? Have you joined a certain community or made life-long friends (tag them here).
Personally, I have learned a lot of things including getting better at photography and not just of taking photos of books, but for everything that this platform has showed me to be grateful for —the people, places I’ve seen and friends I’ve made around the world.
Another thing I will always be grateful for is the fact that I tend to notice and analyze more of what’s around me. Now, if I take a walk in the forest or go for a drive I notice how beautiful the trees are or how aesthetic some of the old houses in my city are; and this is truly something I never did before.
Does anyone else feel this way? Has it changed your perception on mundane things?

Ps. Happy Mother’s Day 💕 #whpimagination
