✨Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater✨ I’ve heard mixed reviews on this series - my first by Maggie Stiefvater but I loved it! Grace has always been drawn to the wolves in the woods, ever since she was attacked by them and then saved by 1 lone wolf. She doesn’t expect that the wolf she’s drawn to is part wolf part human...and that it can happen to others...and that there are others... and that there might be a cure...but why didn’t she change when she was bitten?? There wasn’t a huge in depth storyline, it was pretty simple but so effective and totally different to the whole full moon werewolf story line. Maggie created a different world of wolves altogether and it kept me totally engrossed in the book and I didn’t want to put it down! I read some bad reviews about it but I honestly loved it and can’t wait to start the next book! I rate this book 4.5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 #maggiestiefvater #shiver #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookreviews #bookrating #bookratings #book #books #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormsofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #bookgeeks #honestbookreview #honestbookreviews
I am naming 2019 my year of series!

Love that my local library has an online inventory of ebooks that I can browse whenever I want! I have a preference for hard copy books but taking my iPad with me is easier when travelling which I’ve been doing this weekend; I don’t want to risk my books getting bent in my purse 😂 #ebooks #youngadult #vampireacademy #guiltypleasure #bookandcoffee #bookstagram #bookgram #instabook #booksofinstagram #bookish #bibliophile #bookworm #bookdragon #booknerd #books #reading #bookreview #bookratings #cozyreads #bookandblanket #bookishfeature #winterreads #winterreading #currentread
New Arrivals Available in stock for 5,500 @Regrann from @bookworm18 - ✨Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon✨ If you’re looking for your next read you just HAVE to make it this book!! It’s about a girl called Madeline, a teenage girl who has never set foot outside as she has a rare auto immune disease that could cause her going outside into unfiltered air to get sick and die. Her life is spent entirely indoors, never feeling the sun on her skin or the wind in her hair...until Olly moves in next door to her. She falls in love slowly and eventually leaves in the middle of the night and convinces him to go to Hawaii with her. She experiences the sea, new foods, different air than that in her house and so much more, all whilst anticipating sickness and inevitable death. She does get sick eventually, and her mum gets her back home and bans her from seeing Olly but then she finds out a HUGE secret that changes her life forever. I’m DYING to write what that is but don’t want to be a spoiler so I’ll just say that everyone really needs to read this book!! It’s a light read, has you on the edge of your seat and you do NOT expect that ending! I rate this book 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #nicolayoon #everythingeverything #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookreviews #bookrating #bookratings #book #books #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormsofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #bookgeeks #honestbookreview #honestbookreviews

Just started The Inquisition by @taranmatharuauthor . I read The Novice earlier this year with the Perustopia book club and absolutely loved it so I wanted to continue with the series soon. I always struggle with waiting too long between books in series and it usually results in me forgetting things so I’m trying to improve that going into the new year! #theinquisition #taranmatharu #fantasy #yafantasy #bookandcoffee #bookstagram #bookgram #instabook #booksofinstagram #bookish #bibliophile #bookworm #bookdragon #booknerd #books #reading #bookreview #bookratings #cozyreads #bookandblanket #bookishfeature #winterreads #winterreading #currentread
I finished Tweak last night and it was amazing! To create a book that is so compulsively readable made me feel like I was right there with Nic through his struggles. It was both heartbreaking and uplifting and I can’t wait to pick up more of his writing. #tweak #nicsheff #truestory #memoir #beautifulboy #bookandcoffee #bookstagram #bookgram #instabook #booksofinstagram #bookish #bibliophile #bookworm #bookdragon #booknerd #books #reading #bookreview #bookratings #cozyreads #bookandblanket #bookishfeature #winterreads #winterreading #currentread

Currently reading Tweak by Nic Sheff and I can’t put it down. This is a true story about his experiences with drugs. If you’ve seen the movie Beautiful Boy this is the man that the movie is based on. The book itself is unputdownable as you follow his addiction. It has been consuming me for hours at a time and breaking my heart. #tweak #nicsheff #truestory #memoir #beautifulboy #bookandcoffee #bookstagram #bookgram #instabook #booksofinstagram #bookish #bibliophile #bookworm #bookdragon #booknerd #books #reading #bookreview #bookratings #cozyreads #bookandblanket #bookishfeature #winterreads #winterreading #currentread
✨The hate you give by Angie Thomas✨ ‘Once upon a time there was a hazel eyed boy with dimples. I called him Khalil. The world called him a thug.’ I LOVED this book soooo much! The story is about a 16 year old girl who was with her best friend Khalil in a car when they were pulled over and Khalil is shot by an officer, for no other reason than that he is black. It goes on to show her struggle in speaking out and trying to get justice for Khalil, who to the world is portrayed as a thug who sold drugs, but to Starr was the kindest and humblest guy who never wanted to sell and was just selling to pay off a debt to save his mama’s life. She speaks of her struggle to hide her ‘black side’ when she goes to her white school and hiding her ‘white’ side & white boyfriend when she’s in her black neighbourhood. The end isn’t the happiest, and you don’t get the justice you hope for, but it portrays a reality for some and you can’t help but still feel happy at Starr and her families enthusiasm and positivity at carrying on with life no matter what the circumstances. I highly recommend this book and can’t WAIT to watch the movie now!! I rate this book 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! #angiethomas #thehateyougive #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookreviews #bookrating #bookratings #book #books #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormsofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #bookgeeks #honestbookreview #honestbookreviews

December makes me nervous because I hate how time goes by ✨ 🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁 Today I have the #bookratings tag for you guys, I was tagged by the amazing @lost_in_bookshelves (THANK YOU SO SO MUCH 💖), and feel free to do it if you want to! 😘 ✨ 🍁Most read book: recently Cress, and I think maybe also the Selection 🍁All time favorite book: I don’t know!! I have phases, I really love Peter Pan and A Million Junes and Cress and Océano Mar and Solitaire… you get the idea, I have a million favorites. 🍁Best book of 2018: I’m the WORST at reading books when they’re actually released, so I’m gonna say The Selection because I was SO SURPRISED and I’ve reread them a bunch of times. 🍁Worst book of 2018: I don’t really like to talk about books I hate over here because, honestly, I don’t really have a lot of time and when I do have time I just really wanna focus on books I love, so I’m gonna go ahead and say another book I ADORE: Twelve Nights. Just MAGICAL.✨ 🍁✨🍁✨🍁✨🍁 What are your favorite books of this 2018? 💖 🍁 🍁 🍁 #autumn #fall #leaves #autumncolours #time #november #rain #bookstagram #ilovebooks #booksof2018 #instabooks #igreads #edit #photo #autumnleaves
“Paper towns by John Green” This book was a strange read. It starts with Q and Margo on an all night adventure of revenge and then Margo disappearing off the face of the earth. She’s left behind clues but no one but Q takes it seriously since she’s done it before. Only this time Margo is gone for good. I enjoyed the humour and banter between Q and his friends & laughed out loud a lot, but I hated Margo’s character and was hoping for a much better ending. The book makes you laugh but also gives you a great feeling of sadness as Q looks tirelessly for her and puts the rest of his life on hold. Overall it was an okay book but I didn’t find it one of John Greens best. I rate this book 3.5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 #johngreen #papertowns #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookreviews #bookrating #bookratings #book #books #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormsofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #bookgeeks #honestbookreview #honestbookreviews

Mini review: Daughter of Smoke and Bone - 4.5 stars ✨! _____________________________________________ I will admit that I initially had a hard time getting into this book but after about 100 pages or so, things started picking up! I ended up loving this story and I can’t wait to read the next books! _____________________________________________ 👍🏽Liked: I loved the setting of Prague! It was so atmospheric! Also, loved the whole history that we got towards the end about the chimeras. And I loved Karou! She feels like such a breath of fresh air compared to our usual ya protagonists we get. . 👎🏽Disliked: the only reason it didn’t get a full 5 stars is because for 100 pages, nothing happened lol. It was day to day stuff and I almost DNFd! _____________________________________________ I can’t wait to see where this story goes! Usually I can predict what might happen but I am at a blank with this one! I definitely recommend it if you haven’t read it yet! . . #daughterofsmokeandbone #lainitaylor #karou #akiva #bookreview #minibookreview #bookratings #bookstagrammer #bookcommunity #bookishlove #yareads #bookstagram #booktography #artsyphoto #artsyaesthetic #finetecwatercolors #tea #littlecauldron #readersofinstagram #reviewersofinstagram #bookishpost #youngadultbooks #booknerdigan #instabookstagram

✨Fugitive six by Pittacus Lore✨ Oh my GOD how am I supposed to wait a whole year for the next book to come out!!! This is book 2 in Pittacus lore’s Lorien Legacies reborn books. It was AMAZING!!! So much happened and I don’t really know how to explain without ruining it for people yet to read but it was sooo good, so many plots and twists, all the human garde separated from one another, all with different organisations, new garde added to their ranks and the entrance of number five once again! It was just amazing and I can’t wait for the next book, what a way to end it 😫😫 I rate this book 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #cliffhanger #pittacuslore #fugitivesix #lorienlegacies #lorienlegaciesreborn #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookreviews #bookrating #bookratings #book #books #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormsofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #bookgeeks #honestbookreview #honestbookreviews
“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face." It’s getting to the time of the year that is my favourite to curl up with a book and read.

Tears Of Tess (Monsters In The Dark book 1) by Pepper Winters. Synopsis: “My life was complete. Happy, content, everything neat and perfect. Then it all changed. I was sold.” Tess Snow has everything she ever wanted: one more semester before a career in property development, a loving boyfriend, and a future dazzling bright with possibility. For their two year anniversary, Brax surprises Tess with a romantic trip to Mexico. Sandy beaches, delicious cocktails, and soul-connecting sex set the mood for a wonderful holiday. With a full heart, and looking forward to a passion filled week, Tess is on top of the world. But lusty paradise is shattered. Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror. Captive and alone with no savior, no lover, no faith, no future, Tess evolves from terrified girl to fierce fighter. But no matter her strength, it can’t save her from the horror of being sold. Can Brax find Tess before she’s broken and ruined, or will Tess’s new owner change her life forever? A New Adult Dark Contemporary Romance, not suitable for people sensitive to grief, slavery, and nonconsensual sex. A story about finding love in the strangest of places, a will of iron that grows from necessity, and forgiveness that may not be enough.

📚OCTOBER WRAP-UP📚 I’ve had a secret reading challenge for myself that I’ve held in the back of my mind: for one month, read an average of one book a day. Every time I’m close to that goal, I consider it briefly and then usually forget or run out of time. . My stress levels have been pretty high lately to the point where my husband pushed me to take some time off and *actually* relax (he’s not a fan of my brand of relaxing for an hour and then feeling guilty about it for a day 🤷🏻‍♀️). 😆 So I shirked lots of other things & spent some time reading by the fireplace instead. The result: 32 books finished & one DNF in Oct. . ❗️NOTABLE BOOKS/SERIES: 🧟‍♂️TDDOEF by Kiersten White: loved reading this after the original! See my post a few photos back. . 🕵🏻‍♀️Dublin Murder Squad by Tana French: hauntingly beautiful writing & atmospheric mysteries. Highly recommended! . 🧠The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes: YA thriller series - detective kids w/ supernatural abilities! Requires some suspension of disbelief, but I loved the characters & the mysteries were fun. . ❓Read anything notable lately?

Although there is tons of controversy around James Frey I have to say he is one of my favourite authors ever. I always get so absorbed in his writing and his stories. I have been eagerly awaiting a new book from him so when I heard about Katerina coming out I knew I needed to read it ASAP. I can’t put it down (which is no surprise) 💜 #jamesfrey #katerina #favouriteauthors #bookandcoffee #bookstagram #bookgram #instabook #booksofinstagram #bookish #bibliophile #bookworm #bookdragon #booknerd #books #reading #bookreview #bookratings #autumnreads #cozyreads #bookandblanket

✨(un)arranged marriage by Bali Rai✨ This story had a different twist to what I imagined looking at the cover, which was a guy being forced into a marriage when we generally picture it being a girl. Manny or Manjit is from a traditional Sikh punjabi family, whose expectations are for him to marry a girl of their choice, work in a job that doesn’t require an education and a lot of very different thinking and aims in life that Manny just cannot get his head around. All he wants at the age of 16 is to become a writer, meet a girl he actually likes and have fun with his best friend Ady. It was so interesting to learn a bit about the Sikh culture as I’ve never read anything about it before. I enjoyed the journey the family made to India, again learning about the punjabi culture from a Sikh point of view as I’ve only ever read of India and the Hindu religion. It was a tale of hurt and laughs, happiness and Manny’s deepest feelings of desperation and longing which the writer makes you feel with him. Overall I really enjoyed the book and was on the edge of my seat near the end! I rate this book 4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #balirai #unarrangedmarriage #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookreviews #bookrating #bookratings #book #books #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormsofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #bookgeeks #honestbookreview #honestbookreviews
✨Lion by Saroo Brierley✨ Lion is a heartbreaking true story of a 5 year old boy Saroo, getting lost on a train in India. He tells the story of his family and upbringing, and how he came to be on a train that fateful day he got lost, distraught and unable to find his way home on his own. He survived for weeks on the rough and extremely dangerous streets of Kolkata, somehow by a miracle it seems, dodged those with bad intentions of harming him on the streets, wound up at a juvenile centre and then with an agency who after failing to locate his family and labelling him as neglected, gave him the opportunity to be adopted by a family all the way in Australia. Saroo tells how he slowly settled into life in Australia, at that time 1 in 100 brown children, and grew up, studied, went through different relationships and jobs but never forgetting his trauma as a 5 year old and always having it in mind. At the age of 26 he became obsessive, pouring over map after map on Google Earth until many months on, he found the place he had gone missing in India. From then he tells the emotional story of his overwhelming return and being reunited with his mother and family in India. I loved this book and found it such an unbelievable story and highly recommend it to others. I also learned soo much about India! I rate this book 4.5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 #saroobrierley #lion #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookreviews #bookrating #bookratings #book #books #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormsofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #bookgeeks #honestbookreview #honestbookreviews
✨Exit West by Mohsin Hamid✨ I really enjoyed this book! All over the world, doors are opening leading to other countries and lives. Saeed & Nadia are strangers, newly in love and desperate to survive in a city gripped by war. They go through a door to Mykonos, then London, then Marin, journeying together looking for a place they belong, changing, growing apart from one another but desperately hanging onto one another not wanting to be alone. Hamid’s writing really makes you feel what they feel, understand the struggle in their relationship, their feelings towards each other, Saeed’s devotion to religion, Nadia’s opposition to it. The tale shows their struggles as refugees and of their relationship turning from lovers to something like siblings. I highly recommend it!! I rate this book 4.5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 #exitwest #mohsinhamid #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookreviews #bookrating #bookratings #book #books #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormsofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #bookgeeks #honestbookreview #honestbookreviews
✨Sleepless in Manhattan by Sarah Morgan✨ Sometimes after a dark book I need to read something light like a romance or a chick flick. This book was perfect and I really enjoyed it. Paige is let go from her job and she’s left to make a go of life in Manhattan on her own. She takes a plunge into starting a business with her 2 besties, whilst being given advice from her brothers best friend, who she has a huge crush on and is also New York’s number 1 wanted man. Can she convince him to change his player ways and make this business work for her and her friends? It’s funny, easy to read and perfect to curl up with and read in one sitting. I rate this book 4.5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 #sleeplessinmanhattan #sarahmorgan #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookreviews #bookrating #bookratings #book #books #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormsofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #bookgeeks #honestbookreview #honestbookreviews
✨After Dark by Haruki Murakami✨ This was my first Murakami novel and I don’t really know how I feel about it. It took a few pages to get used to his style of writing; which is v unique but amazing. I think if you read a random passage and wasn’t told who the writer was, you’d know after reading a Murakami book that he was the writer! It was a bit of a random book about 3 dif groups of people and their time spent through the night. I can’t pinpoint or explain what the exact storyline was, just that I never thought of the ‘deepest darkest time of the night’ or the ‘hardest part of the night’ and just thought of night time as exactly that - night time. It was a bit dark, kind of weird and gloomy feeling but somehow it worked. I’m still unsure how I feel about his work but I’ll be trying another Murakami book and see how I feel then. I rate this book 3 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #murakami #harukimurakami #afterdark #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookreviews #bookrating #bookratings #book #books #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormsofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #bookgeeks #honestbookreview #honestbookreviews
Matilda was my favourite movie growing up and I like to think that that’s what inspired my love of reading. I realized the other day that I had never actually read the book so I immediately felt the need to read it. I absolutely adore it. #matilda #roalddahl #bookandlegs #bookandcoffee #bookstagram #bookgram #instabook #booksofinstagram #bookish #bibliophile #bookworm #bookdragon #booknerd #books #reading #bookreview #bookratings #autumnreads #cozyreads #bookandblanket
✨Generation One by Pittacus Lore✨ This book is the first in another series that come after the ‘I am number four’ books. Honestly I didn’t think this book could possibly even come close to matching the first books but it was JUST AS AMAZING!! The war is over and a human garde has now been formed. An academy is opened to help the teenagers that started developing Legacies (powers) after the war, to learn to control their powers and use them for good only. But another organisation has other plans for the teens and when Taylor, the teen with a healing legacy is kidnapped, it’s upto her friends and the academy to figure out where she was teleported, for what purpose and how they can save her and themselves from this new v dangerous organisation that possesses Legacies just like they do. I rate this book 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #lorienlegaciesreborn #pittacuslore #generationone #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookreviews #bookrating #bookratings #book #books #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormsofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #bookgeeks #honestbookreview #honestbookreviews

✨My not so perfect life by Sophie Kinsella✨ This was my first Sophie kinsella book and maaaan have I been missing out!! Such a simple story line but I couldn’t put it down. Very relatable story on how people’s lives look so perfect on the outside but really on the inside there is so much more going on than we know. The look of perfection of someone’s Instagram squares might be the complete opposite - a cry for help even. The stories of the women in this book trying to up one another and hating each other only to have it all broken down and show how we aren’t all that different from each other no matter what our external appearance shows. I think I need to go and get the shopaholic series that’s had such great reviews after this cos I loved it! I rate this book 4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #sophiekinsella #mynotsoperfectlife #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookreviews #bookrating #bookratings #book #books #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormsofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #bookgeeks #honestbookreview #honestbookreviews
Wanted to read “It” by Stephen King this October but because I have so much studying to do I decided not to embark on that yet. So instead I picked up a couple of his novellas at the library! His books always get me in the Halloween spirit! 🎃 #stephenking #gwendysbuttonbox #blockadebilly #halloweenreads #bookandcoffee #bookstagram #bookgram #instabook #booksofinstagram #bookish #bibliophile #bookworm #bookdragon #booknerd #books #reading #bookreview #bookratings #autumnreads #cozyreads #bookandblanket
✨The Lorien Legacies by Pittacus Lore✨ My first ever sci fi books and I LOVED THEM! Meet The Loric, an almost extinct race represented by 9 teenagers and their guardians living on earth. The Mogadorians are searching for the 9 to finish the job. And the 9 are searching for each other whilst staying hidden. Each has powers/ Legaciesfeom invisibility to flight to being a human fireball, these books have you on the edge of your seat!! I wished these books hadn’t finished but I’ve just found out the writer has just started a new series as a continuation of these books!! I can’t write much without putting spoilers in but highly recommend these books! I rate this series 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #theloric #lorienlegacies #pittacuslore #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookreviews #bookrating #bookratings #book #books #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormsofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #bookgeeks #honestbookreview #honestbookreviews
✨Sea Prayer by Khaled Hossaini✨ Khaled Hossaini is one of my all time favourite authors and this very short book did not disappoint. It’s more of a poem, composed in the form of a letter from a father to his son. Hossaini said he wrote this book to keep alive the memory of Alan Kurdi, the 3 year old Syrian boy whose body washed up on the shores of the Mediterranean, but also to pay tribute to the thousands of refugees who lost their lives at sea. It took about ten minutes to read through the book and look at the beautiful but heartbreaking illustrations, but it made me very emotional and I highly recommend this short but very moving read to everyone. I rate this book 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #khaledhosseini #seaprayer #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookreviews #bookrating #bookratings #book #books #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormsofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #bookgeeks #honestbookreview #honestbookreviews

I don’t usually read love stories in October, I tend to stick with horror or thrillers but I have to take an American history test so Alex and Eliza is helping me grasp a greater understanding of the founding of the United States as well as being entertaining and adorable! 💜💖 #purplebooks #pinkbooks #bookandcoffee #bookstagram #bookgram #instabook #booksofinstagram #bookish #bibliophile #bookworm #bookdragon #booknerd #books #reading #bookreview #bookratings #autumnreads #cozyreads #bookandblanket #hamilton #alexandeliza
A colourful and messy shelfie. When I finish a book it goes on the shelf (though I spot a couple in the back that I haven’t gotten to yet).

✨Life Swap by Jane Green✨ This was one of those easy chick flicky reads that you finish in a day. Ambar Winslow has the kids, the hubby, the suburban home in Connecticut, all the money in the world but isn’t happy. Vicky is single, solvent and successful but she’d ditch it all for a country home and kids. So when poise! Offers one lucky married reader to swap places with Vicky and her glamorous single life, Ambar jumps in. But the grass is rarely as green as it looks on the other side. The 2 women swap and soon learn to appreciate their own lives instead of wishing for another. And it makes you as the reader appreciate what you have in life so much more❤️ I rate this book 4 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #lifeswap #janegreen #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookreviews #bookrating #bookratings #book #books #booklover #booklovers #booklove #bookworm #bookworms #bookwormsofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookgeek #bookgeeks #honestbookreview #honestbookreviews

September Wrap Up🍃 - This month I ended up reading a total of 3 books and they were Vicious by V.E. Schwab⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5/5 Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5/5 Sea Witch by Sarah Henning ⭐️⭐️.5/5 - My favorite this past month was Illuminae because I enjoyed the creative format however I really did enjoy Vicious as well ! I really wanted to like Sea Witch but I found myself often confused between the time jumps and found the characters very interchangeable sadly.😕 - I am looking forward to the books on my October TBR and have already finished one of them ! I think this will be a great reading month for me so we shall see🤞🏽 - What was your favorite book that you have read in the past month ? - Happy Reading !🧡 - #books #book #bookstagram #septemberwrapup #bookrating #bookratings #favoriteread #leastfavoriteread
▪captain courageous by Rudyard Kipling▪ ☆☆☆☆ i read this book when i was around maybe 13-15 years old(?) even though the words to me then were quite difficult but it's a great story! this book aspired me to be humble regardless of my background or whatever things i have better. it's about a rich boy stranded at the sea and was saved by a ship and he had to live being a part of a crew regardless of how rich he was cause in this kind of situation, no one cares of your background. and i too learn some interesting facts about sailing which is... cool! #rudyardkipling #captaincourageous #richkid #spoilkid #books #bookreview #bookstagram #bookratings #fourstars #shells #ships #sailing
