Can we talk about how gorgeous this Wordsworth Classics cover is?! The bear (indicative of the most famous stage direction in history), two crowns, baby princess, shepherd's crooks, broken hearts, and flowers are all elements from the play. ---------------------------------------------------- #jinglebookrock Day 18: "Under the mistletoe, let it snow” (Festive flowers) ---------------------------------------------------- #teacuptuesday #booksandteacups #thewinterstale #shakespeare #williamshakespeare #wordsworthclassics #booksandflowers

Qotd: What’s your favourite book cover of 2018? Mine is the Collector’s edition of Six Of Crows like most of us but I also really loved the cover of The Wicked Deep. And speaking of gorgeous covers, how beautiful are this covers of the firebird series? This are extremely photogenic and look great in every photo but I have yet to read the series. Do let me know your thoughts on the series if you’ve read it already. . . . . . . . #bookishfeatures #bookishvibes #booksandflowers #bibliophile #bookworm #booklove #bibliomane #bookstagram #bookstagrambd #bookstagrammer #bookish #booksovereverything #everydaybook #loveforbooks #booksforlife #claudiagrey #firebirdseries #amillionworldswithyou #tenthousandskiesaboveyou #photogeniccovers #trilogy
Do you live where you were born? How do you effectively combine two cultures into one life? I am an Estonian living in Germany. I love the possibilities and the space I have here to evolve - but I rejoice about a lot of snacks whenever I return to the motherland. Also, I write a weekly estonian blog to maintain the language I grew up speaking. 🖤💜💙 - - - - - #bookstagram #igreads #booklife #bibliophile #bookish #bookworm #readingissexy #classicbooks #ichlese #lugemine #raamat #leseliebe #buchempfehlung #beautifulbooks #readingaddict #lesezeit #estonia #booksandflowers
#bratyak I don’t think it’s possible to characterise *what* The Brothers Karamazov is about. Like so much of Russian literature it is about many things, morality and philosophy; society and our place in the world; life, love and marriage; War and Peace; Crime and Punishment <😝😉> I did start reading The Brothers Karamazov last year but was interrupted and couldn’t finish it. And anytime this happens to me, the book becomes jinxed. I never manage to pick that particular book up and finish it again. With the #bratyak readalong I hope to break this curse. 📖 #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookphotography #book #bookish #bookworm #bookaholic #bookhoarder #alwaysreading #bookobsessed #booktography #booklife #instaread #instabook #instabookstagram #bookstagramindia #bookstagrammerindia #bookstagramfeature #bookstagramindiafeature #booksandflowers #dostoevsky #brotherskaramazov #readingindelhi

How are you? What have you been up to? 😂😂 What are you currently reading? . I'm only 80 pages in Queen of Air and Darkness and I'm enjoying it. However, I hadn't had the time to read more yet. . I also finished Kingdom of Ash and I'm so glad that I'm done with the story 😂😁 . . . #book #bookpassion #booknerd #bibliophile #bookporn #booklove #reader #booklion #bookstagram #bookish #instabook #reading #bookobsessed #bookaholic #coverlove #bookblogger #bookphotography #amreading #igread #igbooks #ilovebooks #readersofig #beautifulbooks #bookgeek #booksandflowers #bookcrown #kingdomofash #sarahjmaas #throneofglass
can’t get over how gorgeous this photo by @halfdesertedstreets is 😍 nothing better than a beautiful combination of books, book sleeves and flowers! 📚🌷
Mary Oliver’s writing rekindled my love for Romantic and nature writing. In (Upstream), a collection of essays that reflect on the details of nature, Oliver dips her readers, ever so gently, into the life experience of birds and turtles and foxes and owls and fish and trees..I came across many names of species from flora and fauna that are foreign to me. So there was an opportunity to learn new names and new species. The book also contemplates on the life and works of several Romantic and Transcendentalist writers such as Wordsworth, Emerson, Whitman and Edgar Allan Poe. I loved the spontaneity and gentleness of Oliver’s writing. She makes writing look so easy. There is a fluidity and a musical quality to it that I deeply appreciated. It’s the kind of book that is best read slowly, before bed and with a cup of chamomile tea. ☕️ . . أشعلت كتابة ماري اوليفر حبي لكُتّاب الحقبة الرومانسية و كُتّاب الطبيعه. ستجد في كتاب Upstream تأملات في تفاصيل الطبيعه، تقوم الكاتبة بغمر قرّائها في واقع حياة الطيور و السلاحف و الثعالب و السمك و الشجر، فلقد تعرفت على كثير من المسميات الجديدة لمختلف النباتات و الحيوانات الغير مألوفة بالنسبة لي. و يتناول الكتاب كذلك تأملات حول بعض الكتّاب الرومانسيين مثل ويتمان و وردزورث و إيميرسون و ايدجار آلان بو. أعجبني كثيرا اسلوب الكاتبة العفوي و اللطيف حيث انها تجعل الكتابة تبدو كأمر سهل..لدى كتابتها وقع موسيقي و انسيابية لطيفة. يفضل ان تقرأ كتابا كهذا ببطيء قبل النوم و مع كوب من شاي البابونج. ☕️
Shall we just go ahead and declare this to be the Week of Lovely Editions? I have more favourite reads of 2018 to share with you, but the arrival of this classically beautiful hardback of Sense and Sensibility has waylaid me in the best way possible. With that exquisite little cameo design, it’s an edition that Miss Austen herself would delight in. ✨ Which Dashwood sister are you? Do you fancy yourself an Elinor, Marianne, or a Margaret? I’m most definitely an Elinor, though I admire those with the emotional freedom of Marianne; I just can never be that uninhibited myself, alas! ✨ Thank you to Oxford University Press for sharing this #OxfordWorldsClassics edition with me. It’s just perfect. ✨ #senseandsensibility #janeausten #oxforduniversitypress #hardback #beautifulbooks #prettycover #coverlover #bookspinebeauty #classics #booksandflowers #bookstagram

🇩🇪👇🏻Inhalt auf Deutsch in den Kommentaren👇🏻🇩🇪 ⬜ ⬜ 🌳⛲🌳⛲🌳⛲🌳⛲🌳⛲ ⬜ ⬜ 🇬🇧》 Hey you bookstas🤗 here's another book recommendation. I have read it a few months ago when I was absent here on Bookstagram. It's one of the best psychological thrillers I have read in a long long time. If I didn't had work to do, I would have probably read it in one sitting, for sure!! 👉🏻📖 ... Every single day it's the same for Dylan, our protagonist of this story. Everyday during his lunch break he always goes to the same park nearby, sitting on a park bench, minding his own business. Some day though he notices a little boy coming down the small boating lake across from him. But something isn't right, the boy comes everyday at the same place and same time, but always with new injuries and bruises. Then one day, the boy is getting kidnapped in front of his eyes. But what if nobody would take you serious or believe you in what you've seen. That's when Dylan takes action on trying to find the boy by himself. But nothing is as it seems ...📖👈🏻 this Story turned out to be so mysterious, dark, intense and devastating at the same time. It started kinda slow & boring, but after every single chapter I was like "WTF is going on here"⁉️😲 Everything got so twisted. The plot twist was so damn good!! Also a prior warning☝🏻 it contains some serious topics such as domestic violence, child abuse and the resulting effects from it. Some scenes were described really graphic. ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ 🌳⛲🌳⛲🌳⛲🌳⛲🌳⛲ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ ⬜ #bookish #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #igreads #instareads #instabook #books #bibliophile #reading #bookphoto #booknerd #bookishfeature #bookfeaturepage   #bookstagramfeature #booksandflowers #booksbooksbooks #booknerdigans #booklove #lovebooks #bookaddict #lovereading #mybookfeature #bookoftheday #booksofinstagram #buchempfehlung #buchtipp #psychologicalthriller #bookishflatlay #bookrec #lesenswert *Unbezahlte Werbung/nonpaid advertising*
I'm not a huge fan of Fitzgerald, but I was captivated by "Another side of Paradise", because it tells the story of his great love with Sheilah Graham - an inspiring, strong and independent woman ❤️ | Не съм от най-големите фенове на Фицджералд, но "Оттатък рая" беше книга, която не можех да оставя. В нея се разказва за последните години от живота му, през които среща другата си голяма любов - журналистиката Шийла Греъм, която е много силен и вдъхновяващ образ. Историята е предадена от нейна гледна точка, което според мен е един от многото плюсове на книгата ☺️ в блога има подробно ревю, ако ви е интересно #anotherbook #newbook #anothersideofparadise #fitzgerald #booksandcoffee #booksandflowers #whiteroses #novel #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #bookagram #readergram #readersofig #booklove #bookish #bookworm #bibliophile #bloggersofinstagram #bookblog #instabookstagram #bgblog #hrisilandia #оттатъкрая #саликослоу #софтпрес
#creativebookstagram - candy canes⠀ .⠀ I finished off the #25infive readathon today with a whopping 16 hours! I was nine hours short of the goal but I still got more read than normal so I’ll call it a win. ⠀ .⠀ I started and finished two full books, One Day in December and Between the World and Me, finished Yes Please and started Station Eleven. ⠀Most of it was listened to via audiobooks which was unexpected but helped me read while I was walking, driving or doing chores around the house. .⠀ How did your reading go this weekend (whether or not you participated in the readathon)?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #booksandflowers #onedayindecember #candycanes #bookstagram #nowreading #currentlyreading
Q: If you could meet your favourite author for a day, what would the two of you do together? . . I would love to just hang out with Leigh Bardugo and dig into her mind as much as possible. I mean, it sounds ridiculous when I say it like that, but it'll be so fun. Her mind is the most incredible place, have you read her books? I'd also really like to hang out with V. E. Schwab because her Twitter feed is one of my favourite things ever. I honestly don't know if I would make any sense while talking to my favourite authors, because I'll be so spazzed out by their presence! . . Speaking of V.E. Schwab, this gorgeous bookmark is made by my oldest bookstagram friend, Marlene, and available in her online store (@starlitfairytales ) right now! You can use my code UNDERCOVER10 during check out to get 10% off on your order. Follow her Instagram (@dreamsinthewoods ) and the store as well and you'll see all the gorgeous new designs she's introducing! Plus, she's having a rep search for the next quarter, so make sure you get your entries in! . 🎧 "False Confidence" - Noah Kahan . . #booksbooksbooks #readmore #bookaesthetic #readersofinstagram #bookstagram #bookish #bookundercover #booklove #bibliophile #bookworm #bookstagrammer #indianbookstagrammer #instabooks #bookphotography #booksandflowers #bookspines #adsom #veschwab #fantasyfiction
Freedom means more than being left alone by the government: it means human agency, the ability to exercise a share of power through active participation in self-government. This was the sense of agency felt by the crowds in the streets of Tunis or Cairo or Kyiv, who for the first time felt that they could change the way that government power was being used. . - ‪Francis Fukuyama, “Identity: The Demand for Dignity and the Politics of Resentment”.‬ . . . الحرية اكبر من المفهوم البسيط بأنها الخصوصية وعدم تدخل الحكومة، إنها تعني القدرة على ممارسة حصة من السلطة من خلال المشاركة السياسية في صنع القرار. وهذا ما شعرت به الحشود الغاضبة الحرة في شوارع تونس أو القاهرة أو كييف ، الذين شعروا للمرة الأولى بأن بإستطاعتهم تغيير السلطة. كتاب ‪الهوية؛ المطالبة بالكرامة وسياسات الاستياء‬ ‪د. فرانسيس فوكوياما‬ . . يدرس ويعمل الدكتور فوكوياما في مركز الديمقراطية والتنمية وسيادة القانون بجامعة ستانفورد. وكان دكتوراً ومديرًا لبرنامج التنمية الدولية في كلية الدراسات الدولية المتقدمة بجامعة جونز هوبكنز وأستاذ السياسة العامة بجامعة جورج ميسن . . . ———————————————————————— ‏#igreads #bookstagram #currentlyrrading #bookobsessed #bookblogger #bookstgrammer #goodreads #bibliophile #ireadya #bookish #booksandflowers #coverlove #ماذا_تقرأ #كتاب_أنصح_به #كتاب_من_مكتبتي #مما_قرأت #سياسة #polticalscience #politics #freedom #الحرية #dignity #identity #francisfukuyama #الهوية #الكرامة
Happy Monday, darlings! 🖤 . 🧁 QotD: Do you ever buy merch for books or series you haven’t read yet?! . I can’t say I do that often, but it’s been known to happen now and then if it’s something I plan on reading and I think I’ll like it. I bought this Scarlet candle from @novellyyours a few years ago before I read the book because it sounded like it would smell good, and to this day it is still my favorite candle that I own 😍 But it’s probably a good thing I bought it before I read the book, because I hated the book and never would have bought it afterwards 🙈😂😂 .

today on the blog (link in profile!) i reviewed two wintery picture books that do NOT feature holidays. so just in case you’re already thinking of the months of winter ahead when there aren’t twinkle lights up, i’ve got you covered. ONCE UPON A SNOWSTORM is a wordless picture book that will appeal to little ones with big imaginations. ❄️ what was your favorite picture book growing up?
My most recent finished book. This is the 5th book I’m the Fever series that I’ve read off and on for the last 1 1/2 years. This is an adult urban fantasy set in Dublin. I think I remind people of that every time I post these books because I don’t see a lot about them on here. 😬 . Anyway my finals thoughts on the 5th book. I was actually impressed by how well the plot came together in this one. Originally this was suppose to be the final book but there are now a couple others set in this world. When first picking up this series I that it was going to be all romance no action. But there is a lot of ass kicking and female empowerment and just enough sex scenes to keep your toes tingling. My one complaint is that I don’t always agree with how the main character deals with l rape culture and kind of blatantly brushes it off. I mean she doesn’t agree with it but the way the character “heals” just didn’t come off as realistic or healthy. However, this story is entertaining and I love the setting, so on to the next one. . . 3.75/5 ⭐️
Hello bookworms 🤗🤗. . Today was busy busy! We had cookie exchange and gift exchange at work 🎄I got lots of baked good and an oil defuser! . Have you read the Three Dark Crowns series? I decided to finally start reading it and I very quickly fell in love! I love a dark, twisted fantasy work 😈Each book in this series gets more and more crazy. The novellas in this series are also amazing and really add a lot to the story and the characters! . #bookaddict #bookish #booklover #bookworm #bookstagram #bibliophile #booknerd #booknerdigans #reader #reading #yareads #yabooks #bookclub #fiction #booksofinstagram #bookstagrammer #bookaholic #readersofinstagram #bookblogger #booksofinstagram #igreads #igbooks #threedarkcrowns #kendareblake #fantasy #darkfantasy #yafantasy #booksandflowers #sword

These Christmas bouquets are quite Seussical!
Busy season for me is wrapping up the semester, submitting proposals, and planning family time. This is my current TBR! Since I’m on the road so much I purchased the iBooks versions! . . . Do you guys prefer hard copy or digital??? I love hard copy but sometimes the ease of access of digital can’t be beat.
Kendinize yeni yıl hediyesi almadıysanız naçizane bir öneri bırakıyorum buraya. Uzun uzun anlatmayayım, kitap kendini anlatıyor zaten. 😍 Seçmediginiz bilgi beyninize tekrarlar vasıtasıyla nasıl yedirilir? Metro'da, TV'de, radyoda, yolda, ekranda... Duygunuzu bile tam yaşamadan bir ömrü nasıl es geçersiniz? Nasıl düşünemezsiniz? Dünya yıkılırken ekran size ne söyler? Öyle güzel bahsetmiş ki... "İnsanlara yarışmalar düzenle, en popüler şarkıların sözlerini, devletlerin başkentlerini veya Iowa’da geçen yıl ne kadar mısır yetiştirildiğini bilerek kazansınlar. Onları patlamalarına neden olmayacak bilgilerle doldur, öyle lanet olası “olaylarla” tıka basa yap ki, kendilerini bilgileriyle gerçekten “zeki” hissetsinler." 🎈🎈🎈 " Psikiyatrist, niçin dışarı çıktığımı, ormanda bisikletle dolaştığımı, kuşları seyrettiğimi ve kelebekleri topladığımı bilmek istiyor. " burasını çok sevdim. 🌳🌳🌳🌱 " Kitaplar bize ne tür eşekler ve aptallar olduğumuzu hatırlatmak içindir. Kitaplar, tören alayı büyük bir gürültü içinde caddede ilerlerken, Sezar’ın kulağına ‘Unutma Sezar, sen de ölümlüsün” diyen pretoryen muhafızlarıdır. " 📚😍 Filmini izlemeyi düşünmüyorum. Büyüsü bozulmasın.

Swipe for spoilers! #owlcrate #powerofillusions . . . I think this is the first time I haven't actually read most of the books that inspired the items of this month's box! I do plan on reading them at some point though, and the bookish goodies are particularly beautiful this month, so all is good 😊 . . . Spoilery section below! 💙 . . . The book 📚 - #amberanddusk by #LyraSelene (plus cute pendant!) . . . The planner 🗒 - by Owlcrate and #BluePrintPress (I squealed at the sight of it, it's so pretty!) . . . The candle 🕯 - by #flickthewick inspired by #thelunarchronicles (fun fact - me + scented candles = horrible hay-fever allergic reaction 😔 I can't burn it, but it smells really lovely - like forest fruit shampoo! - and it will look lovely next to my Lunar Chronicles books!) . . . The ornament 🌟 - by #juniperandivydesigns inspired by #thecrownsgame . . . The magnet 🎠 - by #inkandwonderdesigns inspired by #thenightcircus . . . The tote 👜 - by #stellabookishart inspired by #caravel and #legendary (this is so pretty and soooo my aesthetic, I feel like I need to finally read the second book just to feel worthy of using it 😂) . . . Anyway - next month's theme is #magicalartifacts and I am super super hyped because I am 99.9% sure I know what the book is and I've had my eye on it for a while! . . .

Only one week until Christmas!! Are you guys excited? . . Real talk though, does anyone else find that the lead up to Christmas is actually the most fun part? I mean don’t get me wrong, I love the actual exchanging of presents and the holiday itself, but it’s also really stressful. Trying to get everyone’s schedules to match, and planning the day out is never as easy as you think it’s going to be. And THEN, when you try to build in time for yourself and your significant other, you might as well just throw all plans to the wind. Anyone else? I know it’s not just me 😊. . . #decemberlibrary18 – Christmas at Hogwarts: oh, how I would love to spend it there. . . #booknerd #lovebooks #booklovers #bookcover #ilovereading #bibliophile #totalbooknerd  #instagood #holidays #holiday #christmas #harrypotter #hogwarts #christmasathogwarts #bookstagram #books #booklover #reading #library #booksandflowers #bookstagramchallenge #adiscoveryofwitches

My youngest has decided that were going to buddy reread the Harry Potter series in 2019. It will be fun. Its been a while since I've read them. QoTD: have you ever done a buddy read before? If not do you want to? That aside I am finally in my pjs and getting ready to crawl into bed. Hoping to get a couple hours of sleep in before up and going again.

What color of books do you own the most of? ⠀ For some reason I have a weird amount of purple Hardcovers, just specifically Hardcovers. Does anyone know why? No. Do I? No (also me every time I go to class). ⠀ Since my shelves decided to be ~quirky~ like this I was wondering if anyone else had an insanely specific amount of certain books haha. If so please let me know so I feel less alone (and to fill the void in my heart, angst alert over). ⠀ Also, just as a side note, just realized I’ve read all of these so three claps for me! Maybe my book buying ban is finally paying off haha. ⠀ ⠀ #bookstagram #purplebooks #hardcovers #prettybooks #bookstack #bookstacks #hardcover
Who are your favorite Bookstagrammers? ⠀ I used to get most of my book recommendations from going to bookstores (like the lovely @gramercybooksbexley pictured here!) or browsing my library. Then it slowly moved to amazon suggestions, recommendations from Booktubers and recommendations from my Mom (shoutout to you, I need to read more Thrillers and follow in your legacy). ⠀ Now that Bookstagram is my life (wish I was kidding here) my TBR seems to have exploded with recommendations and I’m adding new books to it every day. But at the same time I feel like it’s so hard to find Bookstagrammers who actually have the same taste as you so I was wondering if you had any suggestions for me! ⠀ Leave any and all bellow (I’ll be spending the rest of my life scrolling through accounts haha) especially ones focusing on Fantasy, Thrillers or more diverse reads since I’ve been trying to expand my reading horizons! ⠀ Thanks in advance and a lovely Thursday from my corner in the bookstore (that I’m not physically in but I wish I was because damn, it’s nice)! ⠀ #bookstagram #bookstagrammers #fantasy #thriller #diversereads #bookstore #gramercybooksbexley
Have any of you read The Inheritance Cycle? ⠀ More than any other series this is the one that made me fall in love with fantasy. I read it before I ever got in to Harry Potter and it has stayed with me since. ⠀ I just started rereading the series (or rather listening to it) and while the narrators style isn’t my favorite it’s been an absolute pleasure getting to revisit this world! ⠀ For some reason I haven’t seen a lot of posts about it on Bookstagram though. Might be because it came out ages ago (which makes sense), but I am here to tell y’all that if you missed the train on this series way back when it’s not to late to get in to it now! ⠀ 1. All four books are out so you can marathon them! ⠀ 2. I don’t know how to describe it but it’s such a classic take on Fantasy that I haven’t been seeing a lot of lately ⠀ 3. Dragons. They’re epic and super cool and if I could I’d want a tiny one as a companion ⠀ If all of these reasons aren’t going to interest you I don’t know what else to tell you other than that you’ll be missing out! ⠀ And if you want to disagree I’m here for it but please be respectful because this is the one series I’ll fight for till my last day (dramatic? Me? Never haha). ⠀ Title: Eragon ⠀ Author: Christopher Paolini @christopher_paolini ⠀ Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers @doubledaybooks#eragon #eldest #brisingr #inheritance #theinheritancecycle #christopherpaolini #bookstagram
Cat and books, is there a more dynamic duo? ⠀ Since this little gremlin isn’t a big fan of sitting still and looking cute for pictures (she likes to hang out in our bathroom instead, who does that?) I kind of had to sneak up on her for this. But hey I think it was worth it! ⠀ Do you have a favorite reading buddy that just makes any book more enjoyable? And that genuinely likes to spend time with you compared to this goofy fluff ball haha! ⠀ #bookstagram #catsandbooks #booksandcats #catsofinstagram #rainbowshelves #rainbowbooks #bookshelves
What’s the last book you bought? ⠀ As some of you might know I’m on a book buying ban right now. But if a book is a present it doesn’t count right? At least that’s what I’m telling myself haha! ⠀ Since my mother is a lovely human being who wholeheartedly supports my bookish obsession I was lucky enough to get these two babies on our last trip to the bookstore (and since she wants to read them too it’s a win win)! ⠀ So a big thank you to my mom (thank you, can’t wait to read and discuss!!) and now let’s move on to the books themselves! ⠀ I don’t think I have to say much about ‘Becoming’ by Michelle Obama except that everyone has been reading and loving this! And when I say everyone, I mean literally most of Bookstagram (more than 725.000 copies sold in its first week apparently, which is crazy!). ⠀ The second book I got I mentioned in my stories a while ago and I’ve been obsessing over it ever since. ‘The Heart Goes Last’ by Margaret Atwood has one of the most interesting premises I’ve heard of in a while: “Stan and Charmaine, a young urban couple, have been hit by job loss and bankruptcy in the midst of a nationwide economic collapse. Forced to live in their third-hand Honda, where they are vulnerable to roving gangs, they think the gated community of Consilience may be the answer to their prayers. If they sign a life contract, they’ll get a job and a lovely house . . . for six months out of the year. On alternating months, residents must leave their homes and serve as inmates in the Positron prison system.” ⠀ This is just an excerpt of the summary and I am already hella intrigued, not at lot of people seem to have read it yet (at least on here) so I’m looking forward to diving in to it with as little information as possible! ⠀ Which one would you pick up first? Because I might need some help deciding haha ⠀ #bookstagram #becoming #michelleobama #vikingbooks #thehartgoeslast #margaretatwood #anchorbooks
Favorite cover designs? ⠀ If you’re stuck, I’ve got about 72 up my sleeve. ⠀ One of my absolute favorites is the Amulet series though; each cover is lovely on its own but all together they’re simply stunning! ⠀ And the series has way more to offer than just pretty covers: I have about 10 spreads that I wish I could large print as a poster and just put up on my wall haha! ⠀ It’s been a hot minute since I picked up the last few Volumes (me not keeping up with a series? how unheard of) but I can’t wait to give them a read and discover all the new whimsical panels Kibuishi has come up with! ⠀ Have you read these yet? If not I’d highly recommend picking one up and giving it a chance, it’s an adorable middle grade story with a lot of heart and the world it’s set in is just bursting with imagination! ⠀ Series Title: Amulet ⠀ Author: Kazu Kibuishi @boltcity ⠀ Publisher: Scholastic @scholasticinc#bookstagram #prettycovers #amulet #kazukibuishi #scholastic #scholasticinc #graphicnovel
Who doesn’t judge a book by its cover? ⠀ At least a teensie tiny bit? ⠀ Because let’s be real: this book is gorgeous! And while that’s the main reason I picked it up, the premise is what made me end up reading it. But without the cover to draw me in, who knows if I’d have ever gotten around to it. ⠀ Cover aside, the premise of this intrigued me to no end and I absolutely loved the different settings it offered. Which is why I’m so damn excited for the second book! ⠀ Has anyone picked up the sequel yet? ⠀ Me being me, I completely missed the fact that it was out already and now I’m scrambling to reread Otherworld so I can dive in to Otherearth as soon as possible! “As soon as possible” could mean anything from tomorrow to six months from now but I’m trying to be optimistic here haha! ⠀ I know this was a little bit of a polarizing book (some people seemed to just hate the main character, which I get, but unlikeable characters are my bread and butter haha) so if you’ve read this I’d love to hear your thoughts! ⠀ Series Title: Last Reality ⠀ Author: Jason Segel @jasonsegel & Kirsten Miller ⠀ Publisher: Delacorte Press @delacortepress @penguinrandomhouse#bookstagram #otherworld #otherearth #delacortepress #penguinrandomhouse #newrelease #booksinplants
What’s a series you seriously need to finish? ⠀ See what I did there? ⠀ Ok, let’s move on from that and just pretend it was witty haha. This series man, I’ve been meaning to finish it since the day ‘War Storm’ came out but at this point I have to reread the first three books and I just haven’t managed to fit them in! ⠀ Anyone else out there who still hasn’t finished these? ⠀ If so, I’m totally open to start a support group for people chronically unable to complete series haha, I think I really need to just binge them from here on out! ⠀ As a side note: this picture is obviously me in my natural habitat and not at all staged haha! ⠀ Series Title: The Red Queen Series ⠀ Author: Victoria Aveyard @victoriaaveyard ⠀ Publisher: Harper Teen @harpercollinsus @harperteen @harper#bookstagram #redqueen #glasssword #kingscage #warstorm #victoriaaveyard #rainbowshelves
What’s your favorite HP movie? ⠀ In honor of all the Harry Potter movies finally being available on a streaming service (shoutout to @amazon prime, you’re doing this right) I figured I’d post some more about everyones favorite series. ⠀ Not that I need an excuse but hey, this is the official PSA to everyone who hadn’t realized they could watch all 8 movies for free now, legally! ⠀ I’m not sure if I have a clear favorite movie (books is a whole other story) but I’m currently watching Chamber of Secrets and man, Gilderoy Lockhart is such a gem haha! Every time I rewatch or reread I forget how absolutely amazing he is (annoyingly so but the outfits almost make up for it) and how much he lightens the mood! ⠀ Anyone going to watch any of the movies tonight? ⠀ #harrypotter #harrypotterbooks #harrypottermovies #jkrowling #chamberofsecrets #bookstagram #hpbooks
What’s the # 1 book on your TBR right now? ⠀ I’ve had this on my list for far faaaar too long now so I’ve decided this will be my next read! ⠀ And let’s just take a minute to admire this cover; paperback or Hardcover this book is stunning. ⠀ So plot, character and design-wise this book totally sounds/looks like it’ll be up my alley, now I just have to read it and finally find out haha. ⠀ Have y’all read this yet? I saw it all over my feed the last couple of months so I assume so, let me know your thoughts! ⠀ Title: The Wicked Deep ⠀ Author: Shea Ernshaw @sheaernshaw ⠀ Publisher: Simon & Schuster @simonandschuster @simonbooks#bookstagram #rainbowbookshelf #prettybooks #thewickeddeep #sheaernshaw #simonandschuster #simonbooks
Color coordination or publishing order? ⠀ Obviously I’d usually have the series in it’s order when I post about it (I mean I’m not a total monster) but this one just looks too pretty in a rainbow! ⠀ At the moment I’m in the middle of a couple books and I feel like I’m not making any progress, all of them are good but I haven’t been able to sit down and just knock one out. ⠀ Anyone else feel like this sometimes? ⠀ Series Title: The Princess Diaries ⠀ Author: Meg Cabot @officialmegcabot ⠀ Publisher: Harper Teen @harperteen @harperteenbooks @harpercollinsus#bookstagram #rainbowbooks #princessdiaries #princessmia #megcabot #bookishrainbow #rainbowstack
Favorite mythical creatures? ⠀ Mine definitely aren’t Vampires, so why oh why am I on book 8/9/10 (there’s so many I can’t remember at this point) of the Sookie Stackhouse series? ⠀ Yeah, I don’t know either haha. ⠀ For anyone who doesn’t know this series: it’s what the TV show True Blood is based on and it is ridiculous. Like utterly and absolutely over the top. People get stabbed, murdered, kidnapped, staked left and right about 6 times a book, and lets not forget about the kissing, making out and having sex that occurs at the most inopportune times possible. ⠀ Now that you have the baseline down, what is it that keeps me coming back? ⠀ Honestly, I’m not super sure. I think at this point my hate reading has turned in to an addiction I am powerless to resist and I’ve kind of gotten attached to the characters (even though every time I like a love interest they get taken off the table, yeah I’m salty about it) and I’m so far in I might as well find out how it ends! ⠀ To anyone who’s read this series and hasn’t stopped reading this yet because I’ve dragged the books to Montana and back, what are your thoughts? ⠀ Should I watch the TV show? And who was your favorite love interest so far? ⠀ Spoiler Alert: my favorites so far have been Alcide and Quinn in that order, fight me about it in the comments! ⠀ Title Series: The Southern Vampire Mysteries ⠀ Author: Charlaine Harris @realcharlaine ⠀ Publisher: Gollancz @gollancz#thesookiestackhouseseries #thesouthernvampiremysteries #charlaineharris #gollancz #trueblood #vampirebooks #bookstagram
How long have y’all been on Bookstagram? ⠀ Today is not only my 20th Birthday (bye bye Teenage Years) but it’s also my 8 month anniversary on Bookstagram! Can’t believe I’ve been posting for so long already, it seems like my first post was just a few weeks ago. ⠀ Coincidentally I hit 2.000 followers not too long ago and I can’t really believe that either haha! ⠀ That said I just wanted to thank every single one of you who decided to follow me, comment your opinions, thoughts, approval or just sent me a lovely private message! ⠀ I am forever thankful for this little community and I hope I’ll be able to be a part of it for a long time to come! ⠀ #bookstagram #bookcommunity #bookstagrammer #bookstagramlife #booklover #booksoverlooks #facereveal #kinda
Do you set yourself reading goals? ⠀ Since the year is 3/4 over at this point I wanted to check in with everyone and see how your reading has been going! ⠀ Do y’all do challenges or set yourself a specific number you want to reach in a year? Or are you completely anti planning and just go ahead and read what you want? ⠀ I’ve set myself a 100 books a year challenge since 2011 or 2012 (can’t remember anymore, I’m getting old haha) and I’ve managed to reach it every year since. Currently I’m at 85 books for 2018 so I should be on track, but since University starts for me on Monday we’ll have to see if I can manage haha! ⠀ #bookstagram #bookstagramer #bookstagramfeature #booklover #bookishpost #bookgoal #bookchallenge
Halloween: yay or nay? ⠀ I was a big fan when I was kid (who wouldn’t be?) but now that I’m older I don’t really do much at all haha. But since everyone on here has been posting Halloween-y pictures all week I figured I’d jump on the bandwagon! ⠀ In more important news: This post gives me a chance to talk about the latest book I’ve finished: “When Dimple Met Rishi”! ⠀ While it’s not Halloween related at all (other than in color) it came to me at just the right time. Finishing it in two days it left me feeling happy and confirmed that this really is the year of the Contemporaries for me! ⠀ Not only is the relationship super cute but both of the main characters felt very fleshed out, realistic and distinct! I loved how they got to know each other and how their culture played a big role shaping their actions and their lives but not exclusively defining them. They weren’t ‘just’ Indian-American teens: they were Indian-American Young Adults with aspirations and dreams and a whole slew of characteristics other than where their families and they came from! ⠀ Also: the side characters are adorable and I’m crossing my fingers for a spin off! Please, please, pretty please? ⠀ My only negatives: I felt like the relationship was a teensie bit insta lovey and the ending felt a little played out. Additionally the antagonists were kind of cartoonish? Since stereotypes of assholes are rooted in truth though I’ll give her that one haha! But those were only small irritants that didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the overall story! ⠀ If you haven’t read “When Dimple Met Rishi” I couldn’t recommend anything more to break up all the spooky recommendations you’ll be getting this month! ⠀ Have you read this yet? And if so, any thoughts? ⠀ Title: When Dimple Met Rishi ⠀ Author: Sandhya Menon @sandhyamenonbooks ⠀ Publisher: Simon Pulse @simonbooks @simonandschuster#whendimplemetrishi #sandhyamenon #simonpulse #simonandschuster #yabooks #diversebooks #bookstagram
Favorite book to movie adaptation? ⠀ I read “The Maze Runner” way back in the day when YA Dystopia was taking over the world and kinda liked it. This year I finally went back and read the whole trilogy and my review would be: eh, I guess? ⠀ Even though I finished these weeks ago I still don’t really know how to feel about them. The premise of the Maze was great in my opinion but the backstory was really, really weird? Like, it didn’t make sense in the slightest in my opinion? ⠀ Then again, a lot of people don’t seem to love this series so I’m not alone haha! ⠀ Contrary to the reading experience I have to say that I watched the Maze Runner movie and liked that way more! I can’t speak to the other two movies and if their back stories end up making more sense, but the fast paced writing and crazy action just really lends itself to the movie format! ⠀ Have you read these? Have you seen the movie? Let me know! ⠀ Series Title: The Maze Runner Series ⠀ Author: James Dashner @dashnerjames ⠀ Publisher: Delacorte Press @delacortepress#bookstagram #mazerunner #scorchtrials #deathcure #jamesdashner #delacortepress #themazerunnerseries
Do you like color coded shelves or hate them? ⠀ I reorganized my bookshelf! ⠀ Since reorganizing color coded shelves is super annoying (anyone who has one can probably agree haha), I collected all of the books I acquired since I built these in June, separately. Once I had a decent amount I gave them all a home on my shelf! ⠀ I’m so happy that the rainbow has expanded a little, for some reason I seem to have a million brown books haha! ⠀ #bookstagram #bookshelf #rainbowshelf #rainbowbooks #shelfie #shelfiesunday #bookishrainbow
