#BookADayUK / Favourite fictional monarchI don’t tend to read books about the monarchy, so I’m going to go with A Game of Thrones (even though I haven’t read the books yet, oops!) in general since the fight for the Iron Throne provides much entertainment!

I want a room in my house that looks similar to this. Nothing but stacks and desks and comfy chairs.

“Fictional people are people, too, otherwise why would we care what happens to them?”
“In the candle’s flickering light, the library’s thousands of books emerged from the shadows, and for a moment Nicholas could not help admiring them again. During free time he had almost never looked up from the pages he was reading, but now he saw the books anew, from without rather than from within, and was reminded of how beautiful they were simply as objects. The geometrical wonder of them all, each book on its own and all the books together, row upon row, the infinite patterns and possibilities they presented. They were truly lovely.”
- Trenton Lee Stewart (via simplybookdrunk)

North and South was absolutely brilliant and Richard Armitage is brilliant and I need to read the novel immediately. 

You should definitely read the novel. I’m reading it right now - I’m about 3/4 done - and it’s so good.
