My next read is Outrun The Wind by Elizabeth Tammi. I love Greek Mythology, so I'm really excited for this one, thank you @northstareditions ! Synopsis below! • • • "The Huntresses of Artemis must obey two rules: never disobey the goddess, and never fall in love. After being rescued from a harrowing life as an Oracle of Delphi, Kahina is glad to be a part of the Hunt; living among a group of female warriors gives her a chance to reclaim her strength, even while her prophetic powers linger. But when a routine mission goes awry, Kahina breaks the first rule in order to save the legendary huntress Atalanta. To earn back Artemis’s favor, Kahina must complete a dangerous task in the kingdom of Arkadia— where the king’s daughter is revealed to be none other than Atalanta. Still reeling from her disastrous quest and her father’s insistence on marriage, Atalanta isn’t sure what to make of Kahina. As her connection to Atalanta deepens, Kahina finds herself in danger of breaking Artemis’ second rule. She helps Atalanta devise a dangerous game to avoid marriage, and word spreads throughout Greece, attracting suitors willing to tempt fate to go up against Atalanta in a race for her hand. But when the men responsible for both the girls’ dark pasts arrive, the game turns deadly."
Q: How much does a book cover matter to your decision to read the book? . . I'd say 75% (a little less than the synopsis). In fact, I was so intrigued by the cover for THE SLEEPING PRINCE that I failed to notice it was book two in a series! Confession: I have a bad habit of doing this... I just get so excited! 😂 . . On a completely unrelated note: Has anyone else noticed the Hogwarts Lego set and had to resist the urge to buy it! It has ALL the characters ... and moving stairs! . . . . . . . . . . . #coverbuy #book #thesleepingprince #sineatersdaughter #flatlaybooks #booknerdigans #qotd #bookishthoughts #alwaysreading #yalit #iloveya #yafantasy #bookworm #bookaddict #ilovereading #bookstagram #thesineatersdaughter
Hello bookstagrammers! What was your latest cover buy? 🍰 🍰 You can see mine pictured here and I have to confess that bookstagram made me buy this - and the Battenberg cake 😋 🍰 🍰 I enjoyed the cake, but I couldn’t really get into the book and started reading something else.

Should I pick this up again? 🍰 🍰 Hope you have a wonderful weekend with lots of cake and books and your favourite beverage! 🍰 🍰 [unpaid ad] #threethingsaboutelsie #joannacannon #battenbergcake #bookstagram #teatime #cakeandtea #booksandcake #instabook #coverbuy #beautifulcover #bookish #booklover #bookstagrammademebuyit #booknerd #booktiful

QUESTION: Have you ever bought a book for its cover? Look at that gorgeous cover 🌹😍 This book wasn't totally a cover buy for me. I loved Tahereh Mafi's Furthermore and really liked the whimsical world she created that I wanted to buy this one too. It's a companion novel about a persian girl who washes dead bodies for a living. That plus the cover was enough for me to buy it. 😏 I bought it earlier this year and I've been saving this book for winter the entire time i mean look at it!! It gives off the winter vibes!!! Have you read it? Or any other Tahereh Mafi's books? #coverbuy #epicreads #taherehmafi #whichwood #girloncover #diversefantasy #diversefantasy #middlegrade #girloncover #bookstagram #bookstagrampak #bookstagrampakistan #bookstagramfeatures #unitedbookstagram #themagicofbookstagram #mybookfeatures #booksofig #bibliophile #readingismagic #booksbooksbooks #igreads #prettybooks #bookishfeature #readersofinstagram #bookishlove #ipreview @preview.app

Pride Ibi Zoboi • • • A Pride and Prejudice remix, as the cover says - and the only correct way to describe this book. • • • A retelling done right! I am a sucker for all things Austen, Pride and Prejudice, and retellings of said novel. And I either love them or hate them. This one I loved! Zuri can hold her own amongst the other Elizabeths, she’s sassy, stuborn, flawed... but she’s also loveable and a tat insecure and you want her to be your friend. The whole Benitez family is a loveable group of people, not just a modern version of their classic counterpart, but they are truly their own person (I loved Marisol!) • • Perfect for those (in school) who maybe want to kinda dip their toe in the Austen-pond, but are a bit hesitant... a perfect gate-way novel. And if you want to read a fun, P&P inspired novel - or just a fun novel - please pick it up! #5wordsfor #Pride #aprideandprejudiceremix #prideandprejudice #ibizoboi #icheated #itsmorethan5 #bookreview #bookstagram #bookish #bookseller #lifeofabookseller #booksellerlife #bookworm #bookwormlife #lifeofabookworm #nevernotreading #readingforaliving #igreads #instabook #instareads #booklove #booklover #coverlove #coverporn #coverbuy

New editions! What books do you have in multiple editions? I'm in love with V.E. Schwab's new hardcovers of Vicious, but the UK and US; I love the new collector's edition of Six of Crows; I love so many pretty books, before and after!

《DAUGHTERS OF RUIN》 ⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔ Raise your hand if you love serendipitous thrift store finds!!!🙌🏼 . I snagged this wonder last weekend while visiting my old library's used bookstore. It was sort of a cover buy (gothic much?) but I was also super intrigued by the description: . "Game of Thrones meets Graceling in a thrilling debut that follows the four fierce princesses of enemy kingdoms as their worlds collide in the throes of war. Rhea, Cadis, Suki, and Iren have lived together since they were children. They are called sisters. They are not. They are called equals. They are not. They areprincesses…and they are enemies. Not long ago, a brutal war ravaged their kingdoms, and Rhea’s father was the victor. As a gesture of peace, King Declan brought the daughters of his rivals to live under his protection—and his ever-watchful eye. For ten years the girls have trained together as diplomats and warriors, raised to accept their thrones and unite their kingdoms in peace. But there is rarely peace among sisters. Sheltered Rhea was raised to rule everyone—including her “sisters”—but she’s cracking under pressure. The charismatic Cadis is desperately trying to redeem her people from their actions during the war. Suki guards deep family secrets that isolate her, and quiet Iren’s meekness is not what it seems. All plans for peace are shattered when the palace is attacked. As their intended futures lie in ashes, Rhea, Cadis, Suki, and Iren must decide where their loyalties lie: to their nations, or to each other." . . DOESN'T IT SOUND COOL!?! . .

Did you guys see the cover reveal a couple days ago from @elise.kova ? I am dying over the cover of the first book in the Vortex Chronicles! . QOTD: What are your favorite books with elemental magic? I have so many. It’s one of my favorite fantasy genres. . . . All the first in the Air Awakens series! • Air Awakens (book 1, where it all began) • The Crown’s Dog (book 1, the AA prequel series, available now) • Vortex Visions (book 1, the AA sequel series, coming 2019) —— SYNOPSIS A desperate princess, a magical traveler, and a watch that binds them together with the fate of a dying world. . Vi Solaris is the heir to an Empire she’s barely seen. Her parents sacrificed a life with her to quell a rebellion and secure peace with a political alliance. Now, three years past when her wardship should’ve ended, Vi will do anything to be reunited with her family. . The Empire is faltering beneath the burden of political infighting and a deadly plague. Yet, Vi can’t help but wonder if her inability to control her magic is the true reason her parents haven’t brought her home. Suspicion becomes reality when she unleashes powers she’s not supposed to have. . Powers that might well cost her the throne. . As Vi fights to get her magic under control, a mysterious stranger appears from across the world. He holds the keys to unlocking her full potential, but the knowledge has an unspeakable price — some truths, once seen, cannot be ignored. . All eyes are on her and Vi must make the hardest choice of her life: Play by the rules and claim her throne. Or, break them and save the world. . If you enjoy epic fantasy stories with sorcery, slow-burn romance, and expansive worlds to adventure in, then you’ll love the Vortex Chronicles. ____________________________________________ #elisekova #airawakens #thecrownsdog #vortexchronicles #vortexvisions #newseries #coverreveal #coverlove #coverbuy #elementalmagic #fantasybooks #sundayfunday #lazysunday #comingsoon
Love love love this GORGEOUS #bookstagram by @readcommendations !!! 😍 Thank you so much, and happy reading!!! 💫🎭🥀 #Repost @readcommendations with @download_repost ・・・ This Sunday, I'm currently reading an ARC of Wayward Stars, the sequel to Starswept, an incredible YA Scifi about slavery and artistry. I fell in LOVE with the first book by Mary Fan @astralcolt last year, and have been so impatient waiting for the next one! Starswept blew my mind, and so far the sequel is just as epic as the first. You MUST read this book! 😍📚💫 Blurb for Starswept: Some melodies reach across the stars. In 2157, the Adryil—an advanced race of telepathic humanoids—contacted Earth. A century later, 15-year-old violist Iris Lei considers herself lucky to attend Papilio, a prestigious performing arts school powered by their technology. Born penniless, Iris’s one shot at a better life is to attract an Adryil patron. But only the best get hired, and competition is fierce. A sudden encounter with an Adryil boy upends her world. Iris longs to learn about him and his faraway realm, but after the authorities arrest him for trespassing, the only evidence she has of his existence is the mysterious alien device he slipped to her. When she starts hearing his voice in her head, she wonders if her world of backstabbing artists and pressure for perfection is driving her insane. Then, she discovers that her visions of him are real—by way of telepathy—and soon finds herself lost in the kind of impossible love she depicts in her music. But even as their bond deepens, Iris realizes that he’s hiding something from her—and it’s dangerous. Her quest for answers leads her past her sheltered world to a strange planet lightyears away, where she uncovers secrets about Earth’s alien allies that shatter everything she knows. 😍📚💫 #bookstagram #instabooks #currentlyreading #arc #sundayreads #starswept #waywardstars #maryfan #scifi #sciencefiction #newrelease #epic #YA #youngadultnovel #ireadya #mustread #viola #music #artistry #booksandflowers #prettybooks #coverbuy

The Bloody Chamber is one of my favorite books of all time. Fairy tale retellings with the most delightful, seductive prose, and a feminist twist. I bought it in a random bookshop in New York because the cover spoke to my soul, and I’m so glad I did. I’ve since tried to read Nights at the circus by her, which I didn’t love as much, but still had a beautiful way with words 🌺 . . . #thebloodychamber #angelacarter #fairytales #fairytaleretelling #beautifulbooks #coverbuy #books 📚 #bookstagram #feministliterature #feministbooks #bookishhygge #booklove #magicalreads #bibliophile #booksilove #bookworm #readersofinsta #booknerd #shortstories #shortstorycollection #bookish
Who's an author you have always admired without yet having read their books? I'm so thrilled to have received this #bookmail from the amazing Jennifer Gilmour @authorjennifergilmour : for ages I've been inspired by her, but never had a chance to read her books.

"Nothing in this world is hidden forever. The gold which has lain for centuries unsuspected in the ground, reveals itself one day on the surface. Sand turns traitor, and betrays the footstep that has passed over it; water gives back to the tell-tale surface the body that has been drowned. Fire itself leaves the confession, in ashes, of the substance consumed in it. Hate breaks its prison-secrecy in the thoughts, through the doorway of the eyes; and Love finds the Judas who betrays it by a kiss. Look where we will, the inevitable law of revelation is one of the laws of nature: the lasting preservation of a secret is a miracle which the world has never yet seen."- No Name, Wilkie Collins - We find out what's 'hidden' in the Vanstone family before the end of the first scene not to mention the tragic loss of Norah and Magdalen's parents. - So you know it's going to happen, it's just a matter of when, and now we're left to discover how the Vanstone sisters, Norah and Magdalen, will fare after discovering the truth about their parents marriage and how Mr. Vanstone's desire to provide for his daughters ultimately ends in their being disowned and disinherited.  Throw in a spiteful, bitter brother/uncle, Michael Vanstone,  a moral agriculturist (S, W, I, N, D—swind; L, E, R—ler) in Captain Wragge, and Magdalen's fierce determination to get what's rightfully due her and Norah. - Let's just say I think we are in for some surprises. By the end this week's reading, Collins leaves us dripping in suspense. To get our discussion started I'll leave a comment below for each question. (the thread feature works great for this) Feel free to comment on any or all of them - (Continued in the comments👇) - #NoNameNovember #readalong #NoName #WilkieCollins

Ik reis alleen Samuel Bjørk • • • Ik ben rijkelijk laat, maar ik spring ook even on the bandwagon voor Samuel Bjørk! • • • Wow, wat een goede thriller! Bjørk weet een bijzonder sympathiek team neer te zetten, die ondanks hun gebreken, en dat zijn er bij elkaar wel wat, een hecht team vormen die alles op alles zetten om een reeks gruwelijke moorden op te lossen. En nu is deel 3 in de serie onlangs verschenen dus dat betekent dat ik nog een paar fijne uurtjes voor de boeg heb... • • • Er wordt een meisje gevonden, opgehangen aan een boom met een kaartje met de tekst ‘Ik reis alleen’. Al snel wordt duidelijk dat dit nog maar het begin is, en is het aan Holger Munch en zijn speciale onderzoeksteam om dit onderzoek tot een goed einde te brengen. • De personages zijn allemaal niet perfect en hebben zo hun gebreken, maar juist dat maakt ze leven en vormen ze een hechte groep collega’s waarvan je zou hopen - zonder alle gruwelen - dat ze de jouwe zijn. De zaak steekt goed in elkaar en tot het laatste moment blijft het spannend. • #5wordsfor #ikreisalleen #samuelbjørk #luitinghsijthoff #lsamsterdam #icheated #itsmorethan5 #bookreview #bookstagram #bookish #bookseller #lifeofabookseller #booksellerlife #bookworm #bookwormlife #lifeofabookworm #nevernotreading #readingforaliving #igreads #instabook #instareads #booklove #booklover #coverlove #coverporn #coverbuy

She believed that loving something should make it a part of you, in the way that your feet are a part of you." - The Little Snake • • • Thank you @canongatebook , I loved this book so much! If you're a fan of The Little Prince, you should definitely pick this up!
QOTD: Have you read the Winner's trilogy? What did you think? I really loved this series, although I think book one is still my favourite. I didn't completely love the third book, although I despise amnesia plots so much so that probably didn't help - that is also the reason that I didn't really love Champion as much as I wanted to. This is one of those series that I keep meaning to reread but never seem to find the time to do it.

I feel like the universe is telling me it's time to read more Japanese mythos inspired books! Not only did I get Shadow of the Fox in my last @Owlcrate box, but I also found Kojiki on sale and somehow it followed me home. It's also cold and dreary here in France right now, so I pulled out my fabulously soft fake-fur blanket and feel like the queen of the North, full GoT style. Looking for recommendations on Japan-inspired books! And does anyone else have these periods when all your reads surround the same theme?

QOTD: Your last cover buy? I definitely picked this book off the shelf because of the stunning cover. It really is a gorgeous cover and the book itself sounds pretty interesting. If you have read it, I would love to know what you thought about it. It's a YA mystery thriller and I am so ready to read this one. I am currently reading In Bloom, an adult fiction book, which is the sequel to Sweet Pea. The book follows a female serial killer and I could not put it down. The main character, Rhiannon, is disturbing but fucking hilarious. I honestly could not put the first book down and immediately ordered book two as soon as I was done. Highly recommend these two if you like adult crime fiction.

QOTD: a hyped book you were disappointed with? . Time for an #unpopularopinion (I hope noone will be offended) but I absolutely hated Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. It was so hyped on here and in bookstores and the cover was so pretty that I was actually quite excited when I finally ordered it and i immediately dived into it, only to be completely disappointed after the first 4 stories 🙄 I just hated the way it was written. The modern language and slang did not work together with the Norse gods and myths at all for me and I just felt like I was reading about the marvel gods (I don't like those adaptions either btw 🤷) rather than actual Norse mythology. For me the gods just seemed like a ridiculous version of themselves due to the way the dialogues were written. For me it just seemed like he was trying to make Norse Mythology more mainstream and that's what annoys me the most about it 🙄 it would be different for me if there weren't any easily accessible translation of the Edda or even prose retellings of it (that still managed to keep a language that seemed more suitable to such old myths), but there are several of those, which do a much better job in my opinion. So yes, for me this book just managed to bring those myths and gods into ridicule. 🤷 . #overhypedbooks #hypedbooks #norsemythology #norsemyths #norsegods #theedda #thor #odin #thorshammer #viking #vikingwarrior #mythology #neilgaiman #medieval #fantasy #sword #vikingsword #mjölnir #bookhype #coverbuy #prettybook #prettycover
Okay but how aesthetically pleasing is this book? I couldn't ignore anything by Lin Manuel Miranda of course, but he certainly didn't make it easier to pass up with this cover! #coverbuy #linmanuelmiranda #gmorninggnight #booklover #bookworm #reader #poetry #poetrybook #lmm #hamilton #bookstagram #newbook #bookhaul #books
Truth or Dance Chinouk Thijssen • • • Een vermakelijke ya thriller waar de liefhebbers van dit genre zich zeker mee kunnen vermaken. • • • Zeker een vermakelijke ya thriller die voor de liefhebbers van dit genre een aanwinst is, plus het vooruitzicht dat er nog twee delen gaan verschijnen. Verwacht geen bloederig hak-en-prak-werk maar spanning die zit in het onbekende, in het in de gaten gehouden worden maar niet weten door wie. De beste vriendinnen India, Lisa, Nikki en Zoë zijn ballerina’s en worden plots toegevoegd aan de groepschat ‘Truth or Dance’. Er wordt ze beloofd dat, wanneer ze opdrachten uitvoeren kans maken om de hoofdrol te dansen in de eindvoorstelling van het conservatorium. Maar de opdrachten worden steeds vreemder en gevaarlijker. Wat is er aan de hand en hoe ver zijn de meiden bereid om te gaan? • • • Wat ik zelf vooral leuk vond om te zien is hoe Chinouk gegroeid is als auteur • #5wordsfor #truthordancs #chinoukthijssen #clavis #clavisyoungadult #icheated #itsmorethan5 #bookreview #bookstagram #bookish #bookseller #lifeofabookseller #booksellerlife #bookworm #bookwormlife #lifeofabookworm #nevernotreading #readingforaliving #igreads #instabook #instareads #booklove #booklover #coverlove #coverporn #coverbuy

"He could warm your soul like the sun and then bury you in ice the next second. He was more destructive than any universal element has ever been or could ever be. It was his way, to be like a hurricane crashing upon the shores, or lightning splintering everything in its path." - The Revolution of Jack Frost
Hopping on here quick to say “Heyyyy Bookstagram 🙋🏻‍♀️” and also tell you that I LOVE THIS BOOK. I’m loving it so much I burned the garlic bread tonight trying to finish a chapter. Best feeling, a book that pulls you in so hard everything sort of just disappears. 🍂 Synopsis: On a brisk autumn day in 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman arrives in Amsterdam to begin a new life as the wife of illustrious merchant trader Johannes Brandt. But her new home, while splendorous, is not welcoming. Johannes is kind yet distant, always locked in his study or at his warehouse office—leaving Nella alone with his sister, the sharp-tongued and forbidding Marin. But Nella’s world changes when Johannes presents her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. To furnish her gift, Nella engages the services of a miniaturist—an elusive and enigmatic artist whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in eerie and unexpected ways . . . Johannes’ gift helps Nella to pierce the closed world of the Brandt household. But as she uncovers its unusual secrets, she begins to understand—and fear—the escalating dangers that await them all. In this repressively pious society where gold is worshipped second only to God, to be different is a threat to the moral fabric of society, and not even a man as rich as Johannes is safe. Only one person seems to see the fate that awaits them. Is the miniaturist the key to their salvation . . . or the architect of their destruction? . . . #bookstagram #books #bookstagrammer #bookblogger #currentlyreading #currentlyloving #mood #theminiaturist #fallreading #booksilove #newbook #coverbuy #historicalfiction #amsterdam #booksbooksbooks #amreading #bookrecommendations
"He’s beautiful in a way that he doesn’t quite realize— which, for a prince, is a very rare thing indeed. But I know he doesn’t realize it because he flashes that smile of his to everyone, giving it out freely, totally unaware of the effect it has on those around him." - Just Pretending
" 'You should be careful' I tell Yukio. 'The thing about taking something that's not yours is that there will always be someone out there ready to take it back.' 'I suppose I' ll have to watch my back, then.' 'No need,' I tell her. 'I can see it perfectly.' " - Alexandra Christo, To Kill a Kingdom I was positively surprised by this cover buy. Beautifully written, the story is told with enough wit and charme to captivate the readers attention from the beginning. Lira has to balance her mother's demands and her own moral compass, while Elian is driven by his endeavour to make the seas safe for humans again and somehow manages to withstand his parents wishes, for now. The ending came a bit sudden and sadly I wasn't as immersed by the time I read the final battle, but it is still one of my favorites this year. #ToKillAKingdom #AlexandraChristo #book #quote #review #BalticSea #Beach #Fantasy #Sirens #Prince #Princess #Mermaids #CoverBuy #bookstagram #bibliophilia

"Each year, eight beautiful girls are chosen as Paper Girls to serve the king. It's the highest honor they could hope for...and the most cruel. But this year, there's a ninth girl. And instead of paper, she's made of fire."
Jeg købte kun den her fordi jeg syntes den var pæn. Den er endda på fransk, og jeg fatter hat af hvad der står i den. Men jeg tror det er en kogebog..🙃🧐 #coverbuy #storyofmylife
How do you feel about historical fiction? What is your favorite time period? 🐲 I am a sucker for anything during world war 2. I just think spies and war and the world being in danger is perfect for a story. I also really enjoy Victorian England but I find it frustrating as well. Ps. Sorry for the late post. I was busy most of the day. 🐲 #books #book #bookstagram #bookishfeatures #bookish #booklover #booklife #bookreader #bookgram #bookgeek #booknerd #bookcover #reads #read #reading #reader #readerlife #coverbuy #cover #oliverreads

Morning Nerds. Happy Friday! I’m looking forward to this weekend. Plan is to sleep, chill and hopefully read. After this week I need all of these times 10. • • This gorgeous edition of Red Rising showed up last week and I’m just sooo in love with it.

I’ll be the first one to admit this was a COMPLETE cover buy. The photo doesn’t do it justice. It’s copper foiling on the jacket and naked 😍 the story was interesting too! . . “Every action, every deed, every significant moment is tattooed on your skin forever. When Leora’s father dies, she is determined to see her father remembered forever. She knows he deserves to have all his tattoos removed and made into a Skin Book to stand as record of his good life. But when she discovers that his ink has been edited and his book is incomplete she wonders whether she really knew him at all.” . . . #reader #bookworm #bibliophile #booksonbooks #readingislife #readallday #books #allofthebooks #ireadya #beautifulbook #ilovereading #reading #booknerd #bookworm #igreads #bookstagrammer #bookphotography #bookblogger #bookblog #atlantabooks #ink #skinseries #alicebroadway #coverbuy #bookcover

Do you ever pick up a book because it's pretty and descide to buy it before you really know what it is about? Well, I do. I did with this one and boy oh boy was I right! We Have Always Lived In The Castle is not just drop dead geourgous bit also fucking amazing! (Yes the cursing is necessairy) I don't wanna give away anything from the story because I feel you need to discover it while you read along. BUT if you have a twisted little mind and the cover claws into your heart the way it clawed into mine, you will absolutely love it! "Merricat, said Constance, would you like a cup of tea? Merricat, said Constance, would you like to go to sleep? Oh, no, said Merricat, you'll poison me." #wehavealwayslivedinthecastle #shirleyjackson #bookstagram #booklover #bookhoarder #coverbuy #bookreview #newfavourite #coverart #thomasott
"Sarai has lived and breathed nightmares since she was six years old.  She believed she knew every horror, and was beyond surprise. She was wrong." - Muse of Nightmares • • Happy Halloween everybody! 🎃 I had to have a photo of this beautiful book up today because of its amazing colour, and because nightmares are definitely scary! 🕸
