#coffeedate . Saturdays are days for chores to me. Shopping, studying, planning, trying to get most things done so I'm free to enjoy the nights or a little more of the sunday. Even more so I enjoy if I can still fit a coffee date with my favourite reading companion in. Even if I don't read that much, but do my journal, it is wonderful. And the coffee at @oslokaffebar is amazing! But I'll admit: their chai latte I'm enjoying while I type this is competing with it 😊 . I'm nearly done with The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas already and it's awesome! I just haven't had time to write about it yet, that post will follow tomorrow. Hopefully, I'll find some time to read on today 🤗 . . . . . #books #bookstagram #bookishdate #bookdate #reading #currentlyreading #thug #thehateugive #angiethomas #tcboyle #talktalk #bookishlove #bookishfriends #bookstagramcommunity #coffee #cappucino #flatwhite #berlincoffee #coffeetime #coffeeshops #booknerds #bibliophile

It’s Friday!!! Tonight I am having a date night in with my husband. We are cooking together and playing games. This week has been crazy. I start a new job on Wednesday. I am struggling a little leaving. I’m excited for new challenges though. I do have lots of errands to run but I plan on getting a few books done and lots of chores. Anyways check out below to read my review on ‘Pines’ By Black Crouch. Recommended by my all time favorite bookstagram @books_tea_and_owls . . . Pines By Black Crouch ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book was wonderful. It was unputdownable. I would categorize Pines as a Sci-Fi psychological thriller. I am pretty hesitant when it comes to Sci-Fi because I tend to dislike that genre with a STRONG passion. Blake Crouch had me hooked though. I would compare it to one of my favorite shows but I think that would give you spoiler to the ending. Blake Crouch had me hooked from start to finish and wanting more. Sometimes with psychological thrillers, the ending won't completely add up but this was not the case. I don't actually have another book to compare it to because I have yet to read anything like this. With the ending, I am curious where the other books will take me but I have no doubt Black Crouch will make them just as good as the first. I'll let you know what I find out. #bookrecommendations #bibliophile #bookdragon #bookalicious #imareader #fivestarbook #bookishfriends #bookstasister
“Is it possible for home to be a person?” — Anna and the French Kiss, Stephanie Perkins . The answer is yes. Home is a person. It’s people. And when I’m with my people, there’s no place like home. . I used to say I’d never live in the desert again. It’s hot and dry and dirty. Ewww. Cactus and javelina and scorpions (one of which stung my daughter yesterday)? No, thank you. . But then I moved back to the desert and it grew on me. Some very special people gave me a home in their desert dwelling when I had nowhere to go. . Later on, I came back to Arizona where my family lives and found out how much there is to love here. It’s actually really clean and I never shovel my driveway and while people in other states are freezing, I’m outside in my flip flops. . And the sunsets! Oh, the sunsets! . But even more than the unexpected beauty, I found my people here. My parents. My aunt. My church family. My writer group. And the lovely woman who made this sign for me (thank you @arianna.fourt !) — these people made this place so much more of a home than I ever thought it could be. . And now some of my best friends in the world are flying in this weekend for @beaulitfulcon which will make my state feel even more like home than ever. I love this place. And for those of you visiting for the event, let’s just say I’m hoping you love it so much you’ll never leave. 😘🌵 . Will you be at #beaulitfulcon2019 ? Make sure to say hi to me if you are! Welcome home. . #beaulitfulcon #homeiswheretheheartis #statelove #arizona
Finally stumbled into what is undoubtedly the best bookstore in San Francisco!! 📚♥️ @citylightsbooks . Visiting the Citylights Bookstore was such a great experience as it was quite unlike any other bookstore I have seen. . What makes this independent store unique is that it specializes in world literature, the arts, and progressive politics. It also houses the nonprofit City Lights Foundation, which publishes selected titles related to San Francisco culture. It was founded in 1953 by poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Peter D. Martin. . I was thrilled to also know that Citylights is recognized as an official SF city historic landmark as it attracts thousands of book lovers from all over the world because of its strong ambiance of alternative culture and arts. . So whenever you are in San Francisco, DO NOT miss this store! I spent almost an entire day here, and will be going back soon for more! 🤓📖 . . . . #citylightsbookstore #citylightsbooks #sf #sanfrancisco #sfbooks #sfbookstore #sfreaders #bookishfriends #bookstore #bookstoresofinstagram #bookstoresoftheworld #bookstores #bookstoresilove #books #readers #readersofinstagram #bibliophile #read #reading #bookish #booksofinstagram #bookaddict #bookstagram #lovereading #bookblog #bookstagramers #ilovebooks #bookshop #bookshops
This week we finished reading aloud The Hundred Dresses by Eleanor Estes. This short book was a reread for our family, joining @lolipopsandlyrics and @happylittlebirdy for their #newbery2019 read along and @linesiunderline 's #thereadiscoverproject . This also was our first read aloud chapter book of the year. The Hundred Dresses is well written and thought-provoking, published in 1944 and a Newbery Honor Book that is incredibly relevant today. Wanda Petronski, a Polish immigrant, is mocked by her classmates because she is poor, has an unusual name, and keeps to herself. Even the teacher sits her with the rough kids in the back because she comes to school with dirty shoes. The story is told through the eyes of a girl who realizes she should stand up to the bullies and tell them to stop, but is never bold enough, and justifies that she never actually makes fun of Wanda. She deals with the guilt of her inaction, and the book spends a lot of time with her thoughts. I loved reading this aloud with my children again, particularly as a conversation starter for us as we talk through what it means to speak up when you see something wrong happening to someone else. I highly recommend this book as a family read aloud. It's short and accessible, written so children as young as 3 or 4 can follow the story, but poignant and challenging for an adult audience. Have you read The Hundred Dresses? Perhaps you read it as a child and would benefit from revisiting it yourself or with your children!
Another wonderful rainy day in California! Any one else love rainy days? It's the perfect time for me to just stay in PJ's, drink some coffee and read. Currently reading Snotgirl, a graphic novel. I'm taking a mini break from War & Peace at the moment. ☔ QOTD: What are you all reading today? ☔ The lovely @nadias_books.n.beers tagged me to do the #totallyrandomwouldyourather tag: 🌧️ Night in or night out - night in 🍷 🌧️ Trainers or Boots - Trainers 👟 🌧️ Dogs or Cats - Dogs!! 🐶 🌧️ Physical or E-book - Physical 📚 🌧️ Coffee or Tea - Coffee duh! ☕ 🌧️ Bath or shower - Shower 🚿 🌧️ Movie or documentary - Movie 🍿 🌧️ Plan ahead or go with the flow - Plan Ahead✔️ 🌧️ Cake or ice cream - Ice cream 🍦 🌧️ Superhero or super agent - super hero🦸 #coffeecrumbsbooks #read #booksofig #igbooks #bookstagram #bibliophile #bookish #bookishfriends #rainydays #snotgirl #graphicnovel #coffee #bookblog #bookcommunity #instareading #booknerds #readinglove #

As I peruse #bookstagram i am noticing lots of #meetthebookstagrammer posts, and polls asking for votes on books, and assumptions followers have made about each other. I’m planning a (re)intro post later this week, but I got thinking about what others were thinking, or wanting to recommend. And because I am always wanting to extend out of my comfort zone, I thought it would be interesting to have some of you set up a few books on my 2019 TBR. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ So, I’m reaching out to a few accounts that have affected me, for various reasons, over the last year, to get some recommendations. To those tagged, give me that one book, the one that you feel I MUST read this year... and I will! If I’ve read it, I may do a reread, or ask for another. Just let me know why you’re recommending the book... all the feels? Important messages? Total fun? No limits... as a total mood reader, your book will fit somewhere in my year, I promise!! I’ve included a few of the books above that have left an impression in the past year, but it is far from an exhaustive list. And for those I haven’t tagged, please, feel free to add in your thoughts. I am truly looking forward to seeing what comes of this! ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #whatbookshouldireadnext #bookishfriends #ilovebooks #alwaysreading #canadianbookworm #booknerd #bookworm
Hello my bookish friends! 🌻 #bookishfriends . Hope your week is going well. Mine has been good so far as I am paving my way through my January TBR list. (which includes one book per week goal) 🤓 . I recently got this fabulous edition by @penguinbooks of one of my most anticipated books of all time - One Hundred Years Of Solitude! 📖 . I am so so excited to start this book next month. This is one author who is obviously extremely popular but also loved across so many cultures around the globe. So I'm really looking forward to this read. 🤞☺️ . Which is your favorite book by Gabriel García Márquez? 📚 . . . . . . #gabrielgarciamarquez #gabrielmarquez #onehundredyearsofsolitude #tbr #newbooks #books #readers #readersofinstagram #bibliophile #read #reading #bookish #booksofinstagram #bookaddict #bookstagram #lovereading #bookblog #bookstagramers #readinglist #ilovebooks #nextread #fiction #booksters #escritoresdeinstagram #bookphotography #bookpicture #nobelprize #translatedbooks #toberead

I like how poetry has the ability to soothe your soul and make you travel time, relate. I have read poems on and off but never read a book. This was one of my firsts in terms of a poetry book and I can claim that I wasn't disappointed. . I read this while travelling. Its great to read one poem as you don't have a lot of time on your hand on such occasions and go ahead with your schedule. . This book is a collection by @ttt_official having the bests of many writers. The range is wide right from love, loss, friendship, work life and other topics. Words that make you feel. I suggest you read this to try out your hand at poetry reading and know how it works for you. Its a great beginner's poetry book. Please suggest us some books on poetry that we may like. Have a great Wednesday! #books #bookblogger #bookshopping #bookshelf #bookreviewer #bookmail #booksarelife #books #poetry #poems #sonnets #words #igreads #paperback #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #readersofinstagram #mumbaireaders #terriblytinytales #ninetysevenpoems #bookishfriends #igreads
"Tea is always a good idea." - every lover of tea around the world - ☕ The Cup: Pistachio Marzipan - 🍃 Tea Type: Black - ✉ From: Thank you @fieldtocup for this free tea for review. - Tea is a sensory experience full of variety and suitable for every occasion.  Tea can warm you, cheer you, calm and excite you. When I opened the package, the nutty aroma captivated me. Looking at the leaves you see the hints of rose petals, pistachios yes and something else?  All the nutty goodness has made me NUTS.  I've gone completely #nuttea (tea pun intended) OMT!!! Yes, T as in TEA.  The nutty flavors work so well together, I get pistachio and an almond flavor from the marzipan.  I keep drinking this one to see what else I can pick up on my palate. I'm sure your thinking I get excited about MOST of my tea and yes that's true (my husband says I do a little dance). As you might be able to tell from this post, I especially love teas with nutty flavors. A great nut tea with a nut milk or creamer makes for an excellent #tealatte - pictured here is the tea with some steamed and frothed hazelnut creamer . Liquid goodness in a cup! Swipe for another angle of the tea latte. #teampistachioLatte Have you had this tea before?

"I've always liked the feeling of being the first one awake in the morning; it makes you daring somehow." This morning my house slept, even as I watched the sun transform the morning sky with it's pinks and goldens and finally that piercing blue after a snow. I've been scratching notes and underlines in my copy of Peace Like A River, more than enjoying rereading this book. I've felt a flutter of challenge awaken in me as I read. In a coming of age story, it's easy to identify with the children, to see their hurts through a child's eyes and pull for them to learn and grow. The recent chapters have my mind fixed on the father. On what it means to be a parent, or even an adult, and struggle through the mire of this world. To keep pressing on when circumstances are hard and unfair, when God seems far off, when none of the questions have answers. Fiction that can haunt and challenge you in this way is not often found. I've been entertained by this book, sure, but I've also grown spiritually, encouraged to pray in a real and honest way, and emotionally, encouraged to press on and to hope.
Hello, hello, fellow bibliophiles! The new year has come and Christmas has passed! My amazing sister bought me a gift for Christmas and I had literally no clue that it was Still Me!! After @gabbyreadswithtea and @best_dressed_bookworm mentioned that it was indeed a trilogy I knew I had to read it. And so that brings us to now, page 36 in the book and loving it. ♡ ♡ QOTD: Have you ever found out about an unexpected book? ♡ ♡ #bookaddict #bookstagram #bookish #bookcollection #booktalk #bookjoy #bookswithcolours #bookclub #books #bibliophile #book #bookqotd #bookgeek #bookweirdo #bookishfriends #bookphotography #bookcollector #booklove #booklover #bookworm #bookblog #bookblogger #bookmaniac #bookaholic #bookpost #booknerd #jojomoyes #jojomoyesbooks #stillme #jojomoyesstillme
🌟BOOK REVIEW🌟 This book just came to me unexpectedly and the reading journey has been an interesting one. . I have never read something quite like this story, which is a comic fantasy novella. It's an immersive comedy with unique characters and situations. I liked the attitude of the protagonist who makes every situation hilarious. . It also has footnotes at the end of every page which give us more insight and make us feel like we are conversing with the author. I was particularly fascinated with the character Jittery Twitch which was nothing like the characters I have met in my literary quests before! . All in all, I recommend this entertaining read to you. We want to thank @itsnickyblue to so kindly offer us a free copy. 📖 Keep writing Nicky! You are awesome! 🤓 . . . . #hotloveinferno #adventure #scifi #funnyread #comedy #novella #authorsofinstagram #books #readers #readersofinstagram #bibliophile #booknerd #read #reading #bookish #booksofinstagram #bookobsessed #bookaddict #bookstagram #lovereading #bookblogger #bookishfriends #bookblog #bookstagramers #readingislife #ilovebooks #fiction #kindlebooks #bookreview #bookreviews

Lullaby...4.5🌟 . “The baby is dead. It only took a few seconds. The doctor said he didn’t suffer....The little girl was still alive when the ambulance arrived. . Don’t be put off by the opening sentences. This is not a book that lingers unnecessarily over gruesome details. It is a well-paced explanation of the events leading up to the murders, including the difficulties faced by the nanny in her life away from work and her desperation to remain with her ‘dream’ family. It is a disturbing, yet enjoyable book. . I can’t read graphically gory books, and certainly not ones involving children, so I’d had reservations about Lullaby. But Kelly @contraryreader reassured me and sent me her copy and a few extra goodies ➡️because she’s such a generous person. . #bookstagram #igbooks #bookreview #lullabybook #leilaslimani #greatreads #bibliophile #bookish #bookworm #lovereading #alwaysreading #bookishfriends
Continuing with yesterday's post, here is another book high on my tbr. The Noodlemaker of Kalimpong is the story of the Dalai Lama's family, the story of his exile and the political struggle of Tibet. It comes highly recommended from a dear friend and I cannot wait to read it. Non-fiction books around history and geopolitics are my favourite.

"Different women have different ways of riding the high horse."- The Moonstone, Wilkie Collins - 📖 The Book:  There are a few ways to my heart and books are one of them and I'm sure you can guess the other. My generous and thoughtful friend Selah  @abibliophilesstyle surprised me with this amazing edition of The Moonstone. - ☕The Cup: Red Coconut Chai (rooibos) - another one for my #buddysipalong with @direads.   I really enjoyed this tea because rooibos is the star and the other flavors are more subtle.  Cinnamon plays well with rooibos especially with chai at the end but the coconut doesn't come through or the turmeric.  I like coconut in tea but my friend doesn't so a win for her.  Downer on the not so present tumeric for her but good for me because I haven't been a fan of tumeric in my tea.  But in our discussion of this tea Di did give me a great recipe for a tumeric latte so guess what I might have this evening. #whatsinyour ☕ - #TheMoonstone #wilkiecollins #CollinsCrimeClub #150thanniversaryedition @harpercollinsuk #VictorianLiterature #unitedbookstagram #classics #r3ad3rsan0nym0us #booksbythecup #bookstagram   #met_createchange #bookishinsta   #bookisfeature #readersofinstagram #bookishfriends #bookmail   #teatimeallthetime #rooibostea #redcoconutchai #chai #drinkwhatyouown #friendshipbvibes #friendswhoreadtogetherdrinktogether #coverlove #bookcollector #📚bythe☕
The most wonderful gift arrived today. Everything was so carefully chosen and with lots of love. We absolutely feel indulged. Not pictured are the items for the college kid. He took those back to his dorm. I have a feeling that Aussie scarf will make it to the rest of SMC’s basketball season. ♥️💙 - 📚. @emmalyg , how can I ever thank you properly?!? Please, pass on our love and thanks to A for her sweet package. I’m sending something little her way when I send you the whirl-hair thingey. - 📚. Friends can be found in any corner of our great big blue globe. I am so grateful that my bookish curiosity allowed me to meet some of the sweetest people I know. - ♥️. Wishing Emm and her family a break from the heat this January. I say this as I stare at our snow-covered roads and mountains. I only wish we weren’t separated by oceans and continents, so we could enjoy some of that delicious tea Emm sent and some of those healthy breakfast cookies that I just took out of the oven! 😂😍 - 📚. Bookish friends are truly the best. - 📚. 📚. 📚. #christmaspresents #presentsfromfriends #bookishfriends #bestfriends #coolestgifts #bookstagrammer #bookreviewer #booktuber #booklr
Welches Buch möchtet ihr als nächstes lesen? • •🌿8. Januar 🌿• • Hallo 😊 Ich entscheide meist spontan, was ich als nächstes lesen möchte. Momentan lese ich Die Stadt der träumenden Bücher von Walter Moers und Fire von @viviensummer.autorin parallel und bin von beiden Büchern sehr begeistert 😍📚 Was ich danach lese, weiß ich noch nicht. Aber ich möchte unbedingt noch ein Buch von @bianca_iosivoni lesen! Vielleicht finde ich ja bald Zeit dafür. Einen schönen Abend noch und viel Spaß / Erfolg 😊🌿 (Werbung, Buch von @buecher.traeumerin_ )
''Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.'' • • Hello lovely people! It's taken me the longest time to figure out what kind of theme I wanted and I think I finally have it now. I've always liked Vintage-ish aesthetics, so I thought, why not? Also, I know I'm several days late but Happy New Year everyone. I hope y'all are having a great year so far ❤✌ • • Tag time! The lovely @booksandlove_always tagged me to do the #schooliscomingbooktag . Thanks for the tag Yeli! • • 🏫 Back to school (a book you read every year) - There's actually no particular book that I read every single year but, I've found myself reading The Half Blood Prince every year since 2016. 🏫 Math (a book you tried hard to like but couldn't) - The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I don't know what it was but it was a snooze fest for me, sorry *shrug*. 🏫 History (a book that's too expensive) - The illustrated hardcovers of the Potter books. Like, seriously 😨 🏫 English (a foreign language read)- I don't think I've read any foreign books. But, 172 Hours On The Moon was first published in Norwegian, so does it count? Lol 🏫 Homework (a book you were forced to read)- THE MERCHANT OF VENICE BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE. Actually, it's a play but I'm gonna count it. • 🏫 Finals (last book in a series) - Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. ♥️ That's it! This was fun! • • QOTD- If you were given the chance, would you like to explore, the deep sea or outer space? AOTD- Honestly, both are terrifying and exciting prospects but I'd choose to go underwater. 🌊🐠 • • #bookstagram #bookish #booktag #booknerdigans #bookgeek #bookishfriends #booknerd #booklover #booklove #booklion #bookobsession #bookphotography #prettybooks #pretty #vintage #2019 #newyear #sea #space #readingtime 📖 #readabook #reading #igreads #oldbooks #pretty

🌟BOOK REVIEW🌟 "I suspect the truth is that we are waiting, all of us, against insurmountable odds, for something extraordinary to happen to us."📚 . Written by one of my most favorite writer - Khaled Hosseini, this story just melted my heart. 🥰📖 . Its Afghanistan, 1952 - Abdullah and his sister Pari live with their father and stepmother in the small village of Shadbagh. Their father, Saboor, is constantly in search of work and they struggle together through poverty and brutal winters. . More like a parent than a brother, Abdullah will do anything for her, even trading his only pair of shoes for a feather for her treasured collection. One day the siblings journey across the desert to Kabul with their father. Pari and Abdullah have no sense of the fate that awaits them there, for the event which unfolds will tear their lives apart; sometimes a finger must be cut to save the hand. . Crossing generations and continents, moving from Kabul, to Paris, to San Francisco, to the Greek island of Tinos, with profound wisdom, depth, insight and compassion, Khaled Hosseini writes about the bonds that define us and shape our lives, the ways in which we help our loved ones in need, how the choices we make resonate through history and how we are often surprised by the people closest to us.♥️ . Rating: 8/10🌟 Author: Khaled Hosseini (@khosseini ) Publisher: Riverhead Books (@riverheadbooks ) Genre: Fiction . . . . #khaledhosseini #andthemountainsechoed #lovestory #favoriteauthor #authorsofinstagram #sfpl #books #readers #readersofinstagram #bibliophile #booknerd #booklover #read #reading #bookish #booksofinstagram #bookobsessed #bookaddict #bookstagram #lovereading #bookblogger #bookishfriends #mustreads #bookblog #bookstagramers #readinglist #readingislife #ilovebooks #fiction #bookreview

Thank you @officialnataliebanks for sending both of these books my way. I can’t wait to read them! 📖📖📖📖 BOOK PEOPLE 👫👭👬. Before my bookstagram days I was always on the lookout for my people. Occasionally I would meet someone who loved reading but it was rare to find someone so enthused with just talking books for hours. These days I feel myself surrounded by so many amazing #bookishfriends and it makes me so HAPPY!!! If you’ve seen my stories then you know that we had a Dallas area bookstagrammers meetup and bookswap yesterday. It was so much fun finally meeting everyone and I can’t wait until next time. . Check out the synopsis for both of these books in the comments. Which one should I read first?? . . #nataliebanks #igbooks #bookcovers #bookcover #booksofinstagram #girlswhoread #bookishthoughts #readmore #amreading #basicbsguide #readingislife #bookobsessed #booksbooksbooks #bookgram #flatlayphoto #bookphoto #fortheloveofbooks #totalbookworm #becauseofreading #readmorebooks #allthebooks #biblio #bookworms
Read with purposeful flexibility For several years I have made very few reading goals, mostly because life felt so crazy. So as I thought through plans for this year, I had to wrestle with the fear of plans that don't work out. I'm committed to reading with a loose plan, knowing that it will need to be flexible and change as my year changes. Read what my kids love My oldest two are independent readers, and I often preview books for them or read books based on their recommendations. As much as I'd like to, I know I won't be able to read all the books they do as well as my own books, but there were times last year when I could have made time for the book they wanted me to read and I didn't. I'm not beating myself up over that, but I'm going to aim for the flexibility to prioritize books with them. Read with my husband We read Persuasion and The Count of Monte Cristo together last year, as well as several audiobooks as a family. We used to read aloud together more often, so we are going to try for one read aloud this year. We also want to buddy read a few classics but are drawing a blank on where to start. Any suggestions? Read aloud Going along with reading aloud with my husband, I want to read aloud more with my kids. This sounds a little crazy because I read to them so much, but we actually read far fewer chapter books aloud last year than most any other year. Partially that was because nap time was not guaranteed with a toddler, which will increasingly be the case this year too, but partially it was because we didn't always read books we loved. So I'm planning to be flexible about putting down a book if it isn't right for us and prioritizing books we all enjoy. Read books I own I do not own a lot of books that I haven't read, and I'm pretty happy about that decision. But I do have several books that I've owned for a long time and have never taken the time to read, so I'm going to try to reach for those more often this year. (Continues in comments)
So I spent some time browsing the #bookshelves to see if anything caught my eye. I can't wait to tell you what I purchased! What has been your most recent purchase?

Hello friends. I hope the New Year is treating you well. I’ve taken some time off to get things in order. I’m excited to start taking pictures again. I’m going to be opening up with new props and a new theme. 🕉 I hope you join me on my journey this year. I have loved being a part of the Bookstagram community. With the new position that I’m taking at work, I don’t know if I’ll have much time so this very well may be my last year. I’m hoping to be able to balance work and hobbies but I honestly don’t know what 2019 will bring. 🕉 Thank you for tagging along with me the last 2 (almost 3) years. Here’s to 2019 and all of the amazing things it’s going to bring!! . .

Was Anne talking about Bookstagram when she said this?! 😂 . Of course that wouldn’t make a lot of sense, but Montgomery’s words perfectly describe how I felt when I stumbled upon this bookish community several months ago. . I thought: “You mean THIS many people love to stay inside and read and drink tea and talk about their reading lists, just like me?!” . My love for my Bookstagram and book blogging friends runs deep. I have been somewhat less active on my own feed lately, partly because I have been working on some exciting new content that I’m not fully ready to share yet but am getting more and more excited to reveal! . In the meantime, I’m still marvelling at the beauty you’re all putting out there and it is my goal to be more outwardly engaged to show my appreciation. Thank you so much for the inspiration, and for making social media a friendly, loving, kindred place 💕
Hi !!! So this is basically my first post ever, peeps! At least on this account hahaha🙈 This will be my attempt to start this booktube channel, so let’s see how it goes😂🤷🏻‍♀️💛 I’ve recorded five videos and deleted all of them because I was not satisfied, and then I reached the point of giving up and saying “screw this”. Only then did I realize how badly I wanted this channel thing to work. So I’m gonna make it work.

Happy New Year bookish friends! ⭐️❤️ I took a little insta break during the holidays, but I’m back to wish you all a fantastic new year! I hope you will read some great books in 2019! Because of the holidays I hadn’t the time to take new photo’s so here are some of my visit to the Harry Potter studio last weekend! That’s me in the middle (in the blue jumper) 😊. Because it was my birthday I got to open the doors to the Great Hall 🤩. And let me tell you, the studios are MAGICAL 🤩❤️!! Cheers, and wishing you a magical 2019! Love, Mary

"I didn’t want any flowers, I only wanted to lie with my hands turned up and be utterly empty. How free it is, you have no idea how free." .

Very exciting lunch time as the amazingly brilliant and lovely author Emily Suvada [author of This Mortal Coil and This Cruel Design] stops by at the awesome Galaxy Bookshop during her visit from The U.S ❤️ It was a lot of fun chatting all things books and getting to know Emily.. she even showed us concept covers for her new book!! (Hence the ooh and ahh) Emily has an absolutely brilliant mind which definitely shows in her books.. Yes we did do a top ten “this or that” short film - will be posted soon.. thx for hanging out with us Emily!!! @emily.suvada @penguinteenaus @galaxybookshopsydney #YA #internationalauthor #emilysuvada #thismortalcoil #thiscrueldesign #bookish #bookishfriends #books #blog #bloggerlife #blogger #scififantasy #scifi #fantasy #series
My little bookworm is having fun with his birthday present 🤓 Man beachte den farblich perfekt abgestimmten Saft zum #tiptoi ☝️das Essen hier war übrigens auch ausgesprochen lecker, aber so schnell weg, dass ich gar kein Foto mehr machen konnte.
Is joining a bookclub one of your goals for 2019? I highly recommend it! Here is a throwback to our last boolclub meeting of 2018. We talked about Madame Bovary ( so many strong feelings about this one) and we all had a different edition with us. Isn't that fun?! I always spend a lot of time looking at the different editions available out there before buying a classic, so it was interesting to see so many in the same place at once. The meeting was wonderful, as usual, and it was there that I got The Card Catalog book from my secret Santa. I finished reading it yesterday and I'm obsessing again over creating my own card catalog, but that will have to wait a little longer. Meeting these girls every month to talk about books makes me so happy! I already ordered our book club pick for January and can't wait to share it with you all ❤ . . #bookclub #bookclubbook #bookish #booksbooksbooks #bookishlove #allthebooks #readinggoals #tbt #throwbackthursday #throwback #bookishlife #bookishlifestyle #lifestyle #persuepretty #readersofinstagram #readinglife #madamebovary #gustaveflaubert #bookishfriends #bibliophile #bookstagram
🌟BOOK REVIEW🌟 "A sermon was meant to be like a woman’s skirt, long enough to cover the essentials and short enough to keep one interested!"📚 . Christianity like a lot of other faiths has many skeletons in the closets. The deeper you delve into the forests, the more dark secrets you uncover. One such unspoken theory that Jesus survived his crucifixion and settled in India is what this book is about. There are some other books speaking on similar lines like - "Jesus lived in India" and "The unknown life of Jesus" This was a debut novel of the author first published in the US under the pen name of Shawn Haigins. The book revolves around the said destruction of the word on 21st Dec 2012. Sanghi has woven an engaging piece blended with politics, religion, terrorism and spirituality. The plot and the storyline are on the backdrop of an extremely well-researched base. The references given at the end of the book would be a delight for any history and mythology lover. Sanghi is one of the rare Indian authors which present an intelligent and well-researched thriller. Rating: 7/10 🌟 Author: @ashwin.sanghi Publisher: @westland_books Genre: Political/Mythology fiction . #fiction #bookstagram #books #loveforreading #bookblogger #bookshelf #bookreviewer #bibliophile #bookishfriends #booklover #igreads #indianwriters #fiction #historicalfiction #mybookfeatures #ashwinsanghi #politicalfiction #therosaballine #bookreview #instagram #bookworm #instareads #readers #jesus #christianity #religion #thriller #bookish

#2018bestnine Happy New year to my bookstagram friends, community and followers! I just want to thank everyone for the continuous support to my account. I really appreciate it and you'll never know how talking to you about books makes me feel! Love you guys and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!😘🎉🎉🎉
Do you have a mantra? 🖤 A few months ago I stumbled upon 'know your own happiness'. It is such a simple four word phrase and yet it possesses immense depth. Are you doing what makes you happy? Are you surrounding yourself with people that support your pursuit? Are you able to freely be yourself? Upon finding this quote and some late night pondering, I was thunderstruck to realize that I was in a toxic situation for years, one that was only nurturing unhealing agony. Severing that connection was quite painful but now as the year comes to a close I am left with a stronger sense of self and a hopeful heart. 🖤 The bookstagram community has added so much light to my life in the last few months. The friendships, the book discussions, the laughs. I cannot adequately express my gratitude to all of you beautiful genuine souls. I am so thankful to share this love that we calling reading. 🖤 Boundless gratitude to @phraseologybooks for creating this stellar Sense & Sensibility keychain to carry with me into the coming new year. 🖤 Thank you for reading my quasi overshare. I wish you all the very best in 2019 ✨
What. A. Year. Goodbye 2018, please kindly fuck off. (I'm sure many of you feel the same) Ending this year with this post, the book that made me excited to start my own bookstagram account after I was tired of lurking in the shadows for a year. I'm glad I took the jump, it has been all different kinds of emotions, mostly exciting. I am so glad to have met some truly great people on here, I hope you all know who you are ❤ Super, duper big hugs and thanks to @suzyapprovedbooktours @getredpr @kccpr @scribnerbooks , for taking a chance on my tiny blog/bookstagram and trusting me with reviewing such amazing upcoming titles. I hope my words resonate always with truth and a pure love of being a lifelong bookworm. 🙏 Hope you all have a wonderful new year! I'd love to know what book made you guys finally start your page?? 📖😘 • • • • • • #newyear #hello2019 #bookwormforlife #bookworms #readerforever #bookstagrammers #bookoftheyear #bestbook #reader #bookishlife #bookishproblems #reading #goawayimreading #bookblog #bookreviews #bookpeoplearethebestpeople #bookishfriends #goals #determination
HOW DID YOUR DECEMBER BOOK HAUL FAIR? * This has been my most successful book haul month! So many amazing books to read this up coming year! I even have a few more on the way! Evermore and Wicked King will be here later this week/next week. * 2018 in review: So to be utterly honest the beginning of this year was a mess. Hubby and I faced some situations we didn’t quiet like and weren’t sure we were going to get through. But God came through and blessed us with something so much better. * I struggled with an identity crisis at the beginning of the year, and when I finally stopped trying to convince myself I loved what I was doing, and finally do what I truly did love... things fell into place. I found this amazing community that has been the most supportive of each other, than I have seen anywhere else! I have found and fell in love with some new authors and amazing women! Hopefully, one day, I will be able to meet these beauties in person! It would be one of my dreams come true! * I’m looking to this coming year not as a new start, but another chapter. The twist to my story. I’ve suffered enough pain, in several ways, I’m ready for a slight reprieve. It’s going to be an amazing year, full of new adventures, blessings, experiences, and friends. * What are you looking forward to for 2019?
