Gorgeous picture of my gorgeous #bookcover . Bursting with #gratitude for all this #bookish support from the lovely @reading.between.wines 🌺🌼🌺 [Image description: My novel on a wooden table top next to a vase on pink roses and white baby's breath. The novel has a teal cover that looks like the side of a house sprinkled with white and pink tropical flowers and green leaves. The title is "A People's History of Heaven" written in red ink.] . . . #Repost @reading.between.wines (@get_repost ) ・・・ Thank you @algonquinbooks for this surprise book mail!! A PEOPLE’S HISTORY OF HEAVEN by Mathangi Subramanian @mathangiwrites out March 19, 2019. “It has the heart-on-its-sleeve melodrama of some of the most successful teen novels and films, though it will likely also appeal to adults wanting to tuck in to a novel which is like the brainy big sister of a Lifetime movie.

QOTD: Did you ever buy the sequel of a book not knowing it wasn’t the first? 🙄 • When the first time I went to a bookstore, I bought two books and both were the sequels in their series. I also ordered My Plain Jane from @dreamologybd , not realising that My Lady Jane is the first one 🤦🏻‍♀️ But I should say, I loved the quality of the book. @dreamologybd is doing an amazing job 😍 Also, I am really looking forward to read this series. 😍 • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #bookstagram #bookstagrambd #bookstagramaustralia #readersofinstagram #bookaholic #books #readmore #bookaesthetic #ilovebooks #bookhoarder #bookdragon #bookophile #bookstoread #ilovebooks #prettycover #yareads #yalovin #yacontemporary #booksandmore #booknerd #bibliophile #booksandshares #booktography #bookaddict #review #booklife
My brain is tired. I was very busy at work today, hopping between different levels of calculus and algebra, and it was a definite workout for my brain. * I was able to finish my listen of The Witch of Blackbird Pond and might try to fit in some more reading of one of my other current reads this evening. * I've owned Rose Under Fire since 2015 when I bought it to have it signed at Yallfest. For some reason, I still haven't picked it up. Maybe that will happen this year. * Has anything exciting happened in your life today? #books #bookstagram #reader #roseunderfire #elizabethwein #signedbooks #historicalfiction #worldwartwo #ireadya #bookish #booknerd #booknerdigans #bookworm #booklover #amreading #yallfest #mathnerd #prettycover #booksoutside #igreads #readergram #math
what’s your favorite holiday? 🏮 mine are Chinese New Year & Christmas!! have you seen the new cover of FOTL (the black one w/ green lining) and how do you feel about it?? I actually really like it, and I think that it represents the name “Forest of a Thousand Lanterns” more than the precious cover with the snake (shown in the picture). 🎋 . I’ve had a copy of FOTL for a while & I really want to read it at some point this year along with its sequel!! Also, I didn’t even realize this until recently, but the sequel to FOTL isn’t a continuation with the same characters, but it features different characters! FOTL also features a Chinese main character and an all Asian cast, I believe. . Also, my theme might change soon?? I’ve decided to force my artistic sister to help me take bookstagram photos and I’m going to take a bunch tomorrow morning soooooooo... yeah. I think my theme will be more pastel-y from now on but I’m not 100% sure. . ✱ #febbookstagram19 - deserves more hype (hosted by @/reverieandink) . #asianyoungadult #asianya #asianlit #asianmedia #prettycover #yabooks #booksofinstagram #bookblogger #bibliophile #reader #bookstagram #youngadultbooks #yabooks #yalit #booklover #ireadya #alwaysreading #bookworm #igbooks #diversespines #forestofathousandlanterns #penguinteen #greencover
The Luminous Dead is a sci-fi horror novel, which is not usually something I'm drawn to. The synopsis of this one was so damn captivating that I had to give it a chance, and I'm so glad that I did! I loved this book, and tore through it since I had to know what was going on. I have not read anything from Caitlin Starling before, but I'm definitely a fan now. It is truly impressive to write a book set in a closed environment with two characters, and be able to hold my attention the entire way through. It was so mysterious to me, and I was dying to found out what led up to the story, and what was going to happen. There are a lot of secrets and lies in this book, and I really enjoyed watching everything unravel. I also liked that this book had two queer women as the main characters, and it was really refreshing since I have not seen a ton of horror with F/F relationships. There are definitely some, but I haven't come across that many (also, let me know if you have any to recommend). My full 5⭐ review is up on GoodReads! Thank you so much to @harpervoyagerus for sending me a copy. The Luminous Dead will be out on 4/2. . .

Book review: On Writing By Stephen King . 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 . This is a difficult book to review. I have no idea what to say, because it's a weird book. Part of it is a autobiography, part of it is a book on writing (duh!). So, this is the best I can do🤷🏼‍♂️: . Do a Google search or go on YouTube, no doubt you'll find plenty of tips and tricks about writing. Not all of them bad either (Brandon Sanderson has an entire videoseries of his Creative Writing lectures for example), but most are by people who've never published a book in their lives (or working on their first one). And some *have* published, but their books haven't really been well reveived. . When you want to learn something, you want to learn from the best, no? Or at least someone who understands what he/she is doing and has experience in the field. . So why not go with a writer that has achieved commercial and critical succes? One who is prolific as hell and LOVES the craft. . This by no means covers every aspect of writing. I personally wish it had some more. But it's clear, written with love, and full of helpful examples. King evens shares a first draft excerpt from the story '1408'. I found that fantastic, because it shows no author writes the story perfectly the first time. (He also spoils a few of his books, beware!) . So, the more textbook-ish aspect of this book (dealing with the art of writing) is fantastic, but so is the autobiographical aspect. Anyone who is a fan of King will love this. And it's even better when you listen to the man narrarating the audiobook himself! Hearing him yapping away, sharing anecdotes of his youth... it's just so great. It feels like he's talking to directly to *you*. . There's also so much I didn't know before. And the things I *did* know were so much better hearing come from him directly. . I freaking loved this one. . . . . #peersbookreview #stephenking #onwriting #constantreader #stephenkingfans #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bookstagramcommunity #booksofig #igreads #booknerdigans #booklove #coverporn #prettycover #bookspines #booklife #read #reader #reading #bookaddict #booknerd #bookworm #bookobsessed #bookish #bookishpics #bookishfeatures
"Oh, and the easiest way to make someone furious is to tell her to calm down." - Leigh Bardugo . I feel there are no truer words than these⬆️😉. I just finished Siege and Storm and it was amazing, soooo much better than the first, definitely 5stars (probably because of Nikolai, I'm not even going to lie 😆) . Also, I finally understand the significance of these covers!

Do you buy physical books or are you an e-reader? I used to love buying books and had so many! Then I started grad school, had no life and gave most of my books to the library. I'll be honest, I enjoy reading on my tablet. Maybe it's because my eyesight isn't what it used to be. Or it's just so convenient. What about you? I'd love to know . . . . #bookpile #booksofig #prettycover #readerforlife #bookgram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookreviewer #readersofinstagram #bookblogging
What was the last bookish present you received or gave someone? . . I was absolutely shookt when I received this @illumicrate Saints and Scars box as a late Valentine's present 😭💛 I couldn't be happier!!! I initially thought it was some books from my wishlist but when I opened it, my jaw dropped! Now, I can finally read King of Scars and be with my book boyfriend, Nikolai 😂😂😂 *dances like crazy* I know I'm pretty late already but if you'd like to see my surprise unboxing, the link to the video in my bio.

One thing I don't like about blurbs on the backs of books, is when they compare the book to other more popular and mainstream books. I think that it doesn't really tell you what the books about, and I honestly don't like reading books that seem like knock-offs. I know that it's hard to come up with completely original ideas, and it's totally natural for comparisons to be made, but if I wanted to read a book "just like the Hunger Games", I would just read the Hunger Games. When I saw that Me Earl and the Dying Girl was compared to The Fault in Our Stars, I picked it up right away. But in truth, I don't think it's fair to compare it at all, since it's a totally different style book. I ended up not liking it so much, and I think that may have been in part to my expectations at the beginning. . . . What book didn't meet your expectations? . . . #meearlandthedyinggirl #books #colors #reading #prettycover #yabooks #bookstagram #bookish #bookstagrammers #bibliophile #booklover #booklove #bookinsta #bookphotos #words #coverlove #booklife #bookgeek
#partner @randomhouse Bookmail! We Cast a Shadow sounds like an intriguing satirical story, and I wanted to check with it out after seeing that @roxanegay74 gave it a good review on GoodReads ☺️. It's also currently the #1 new release on Amazon this morning & I'm hoping to read it next month. Thanks, Random House! Here's the synopsis: . . “ You can be beautiful, even more beautiful than before.” This is the seductive promise of Dr. Nzinga’s clinic, where anyone can get their lips thinned, their skin bleached, and their nose narrowed. A complete demelanization will liberate you from the confines of being born in a black body—if you can afford it. . In this near-future Southern city plagued by fenced-in ghettos and police violence, more and more residents are turning to this experimental medical procedure. Like any father, our narrator just wants the best for his son, Nigel, a biracial boy whose black birthmark is getting bigger by the day. The darker Nigel becomes, the more frightened his father feels. But how far will he go to protect his son? And will he destroy his family in the process? . This electrifying, hallucinatory novel is at once a keen satire of surviving racism in America and a profoundly moving family story. At its center is a father who just wants his son to thrive in a broken world. Maurice Carlos Ruffin’s work evokes the clear vision of Ralph Ellison, the dizzying menace of Franz Kafka, and the crackling prose of Vladimir Nabokov. We Cast a Shadow fearlessly shines a light on the violence we inherit, and on the desperate things we do for the ones we love. . . #wecastashadow #mauricecarlosruffin #tbr #prettycover #bookish #bookstagram #bookporn #booklover #bibliophile #igreads #instabook #booksofinsta #booksofig #bookishfeatures #bookfeaturepage
How short can something be, and still be a book? I read ”Two stories” by Virginia Woolf and Mark Haddon earlier this month but decided it was too short to count as a part of my reading project as it is just two short stories. But I wanted to mention it as I found both of them very good and the introduction, about Hogarth Press, informative. ”The mark on the wall” was one of the first things Hogarth press published. ”St Brides bay” is the contribution by Haddon. Both are written in a Stream of conciousness-style, which can be a lot in a novel (although Woolf is the master), but as a short story it really can be superb. And this is so pretty to look at, like a box of fancy chocs. Highly recommend (I will most likely buy copies and give away as gifts, that’s how much I like it). * * * #twostories #virginiawoolf #markhaddon #hogarthpress #themarkonthewall #bookstagram #readstagram #readersofinstagram #booksofinstagram #thatsdarling #prettycover #tulips #booksandcoffee #booksbooksbooks #booksfordays

Go Go has three big brothers and has to wear their hand-me-downs, except for SHOES. One day she is lucky enough to be allowed to choose a new pair-enter the silver shoes. The most amazing pair of shoes she has ever had. This is such an engaging story with beautiful pictures that young children really relate to. It wraps up with a truly sweet illustration of friendship. Quite by chance whilst reading this to a group of children I looked down to find that one child had odd shoes on...wondering what that has to do with the story?

Book review: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe By C.S. Lewis . 🌟🌟🌟🌟 . The sequel to the Magician’s Nephew!… despite being the first book. Wait.. what? Oh who cares?! . This was my first trip to Narnia back in the day, as it has been probably for most others. And it *may* be nostalgia, but I still freaking love this book. The imagery is just fantastic! I mean, who (of those who’ve read it of course) doesn’t clearly remember the lamp-post in the snow? It’s such gorgeous imagery, forever ingrained in my mind. . The writing style is very similar to that of The Magician’s Nephew (I called it: a grandfather reading you a bedtime story. Not perfect in storytelling, but always full of heart). . I love how Lewis doesn’t shy away from bad things happening. Betrayal, death, war, things that aren’t considered to be lighthearted. Especially a certain death, that probably upset quite a few children (and adults?) ever since it has been published. . I never cared a lot for the four Pevensie children and I still don’t. Not really. They're fine and I don't hate them. Peter was always my favorite because, well… his name was Peter (HIGH King Peter, even!). Sue me. I get off seeing my own name in books. But, this time around, I find myself liking Edmund the most out of all four. Yes, that little jerk. He has the best character arc in the book! . This book is fun and exciting. It's very fast paced, straight forward and never dull. It offers lessons about being good to others and loyalty. . The Christian allegories are (even) heavier here and it's also very much a story about Jesus and the crucifixion. I don’t mind that. *That* is a good and beautiful story. . A problem for me has to do with the nature of characters. They're either wholly good or wholly bad. This offers a less interesting read, in my opinion, and I think both Aslan and Jadis would have made for stronger characters if both had just a little bit of bad/good inside him/her. (even Jesus asked his Father if he could skip on the whole crucifixion thing. *That* showed he was also human). . All in all, I'd recommend this one. . . . . #peersbookreview #aonewaytickettonarnia
"I think you like to look for dangerous things." . . I was looking for books to read for Women in Horror Month and Black History Month, and I came across The Jumbies series. I don't read a ton of middle grade books, so I wasn't entirely sure how this was going to go. I decided to take a chance on it, and I'm so glad I did! The Jumbies is set on a Carribbean island, and the story is rooted in Carribbean folklore. This was not something I had been exposed to before, so I loved digging into this new environment. I think The Jumbies is pretty spooky for a middle-grade book - not too much, but I think it's a great selection for a kid who likes stuff on the darker side. There are great creatures, magic, bravery, and more. It's a lot of fun, and there's something for everyone to love here. I already read the second book & I'll have a review up for that one soon, too. My full 4⭐ review for The Jumbies is up on GoodReads! . .

'From the ground, we stand. From our ships, we live. By the stars, we hope.' For the past few years, whenever I was asked which science fiction novels I would recommend, I have always skipped the obvious Douglas Adams and told people of Becky Chambers' Wayfarer series straight away. It's like a mixture of Firefly and Star Trek, original in a way that I thought impossible in this genre, and it views humanity through a thoroughly hopeful lense. The series also casually includes LGBTQ relationships that will make your hear sing 💜💖💙. #wayfarer #recordofaspacebornfew #beckychambers #sciencefiction #books #bookish #bookrecommendation #bookworm #bookstagram #booklover #bibliophile #prettycover #instagood

Many thanks to @giuliland for this gorgeous photo and wonderful review of THE CURIOSITIES ✨💖👀 . #Repost @giuliland with @get_repost ・・・ Happy Monday, friends! . . . After working non-stop today, I finally wrote a review for The Curiosities by @susanbgloss , which comes out tomorrow!!!! I received an uncorrected proof copy from @williammorrowbooks and @tlcbooktours ! I loved this book, by the way! And the cover is absolutely stunning 😍 Go to the link in my bio to purchase a final copy! . . Review: . . The Curiosities by Susan Gloss is one of those books that creeps into your daily life, making you wonder what the characters are up to while you're not reading. I was completely invested in Nell and in the way she coped with the loss of her baby girl. I'm a huge art lover and fellow historian, so getting a glimpse into the lives of the artists--Odin, Annie (my favorite one), and Paige was such a treat. Something I particularly loved about this book was the way Gloss portrayed the different stages of grief and how time is such an important factor in helping a person heal. I kind of wanted a less open-ended ending because the historian in me wants facts! But, I understand the reasoning behind this undefined ending (even though I want to know more)--I won't spoil it though. Also, Josh is the best! . . FYI: Miscarriage triggers. The copy that I read was an uncorrected proof, which is why I believe the synopsis states Lois as one of the artists when in the actual text her name is Paige. There might also be other inconsistencies that I don't know of and won't know of unless I read the final copy. Who knows, maybe Gloss decided to give us a different ending. I gave this book 4/5 on @goodreads . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #booksbooksbooks #bookish #thecuriosities #bookishgirl #artistsofinstagram #prettycover #bookcover #coverlove #coverlust #beautifulbooks #bookobsessed #bookhoarder #amreading #readersofinstagram #readinglife #booklife #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookreview #bookblogger #booknerds #booksonbooks #booklovers

Book review: The Magician’s Nephew By C.S. Lewis . 🌟🌟🌟🌟 . Ever since I was a kid, this book was one I was fascinated with the most in all of the Chronicles of Narnia books. It’s not my favorite, but it’s pretty damn near the top for me. And that’s a personal preference, because this book offers parallel universes and the creation of worlds. Things that fascinate me to the core. . The thing that has always stood out the most (and of which the picture in my head hasn’t changed in 20 years) is the Wood between the Worlds. A world that serves as a sort of nexuspoint for all universes. I dig the hell out of that! (I mean, The Dark Tower *is* my favorite book series) . What I like about this book are the two characters Digory and Polly. I’ve always gravitated more to them than the four siblings of the more famous sequel. And I still do so today. Uncle Andrew is a nasty, vile man who I can’t help but love. (I’m a sucker for the bad guys🤷🏼‍♂️) . These books often get flack for being too Christian, which is kind of crazy to me. Do these same people also feel the Bible is too Christian? You are free to agree or disagree with the message, but thinking these books are terrible because it doesn't coincide with your own worldview is rather stupid in my opinion. . Anyway, Lewis’ writing does something here which I would otherwise find almost offensive. And it's in the narration. It really reads like some ordinary grandfather is telling you a story. Sometimes hurried and sometimes not even clear in the descriptions. Paraphrase: “I can’t even describe it to you.” . *that* would normally be met with the response, “well you’re the writer, do your freaking job!” But, I just don’t mind it here. And that’s a testament to how Lewis nailed writing this book. . I love seeing the creation of Narnia. I loved the backstory of Jadis. I loved seeing some parallels with Tolkien’s Silmarillion (having just read that prior to this). I loved Charn (I wish we had gotten more of that!!) and I loved this cute little story. It’s never sad, even when bad things happen. It makes one happy. I could nitpick some things, but really… why would I? . . . . #peersbookreview . #aonewaytickettonarnia
I finally started Siege and Storm today so I'm one step closer to being able to join in with all the King Of Scars hype. I did just meet Nikolai though! I can tell I'm already going to love him! . I also started watching the Umbrella Academy on Netflix last night, I've only seen the first episode but I'm super intrigued. I keep wanting to pick up some more graphic novels/comics so maybe The Dark Horse ones will be a good way to go 🤔 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #prettycover #bibliophile #leighbardugo #shadowandbone #siegeandstorm #ruinandrising #grishaverse #grishatrilogy #grisha #bookobsessed #bookstagram #bookish #bookishlove #bookphotography #booksbooksbooks #booklover #bookworm #bookphoto #bookblogger #booktography #book #books #reading #reader #instareads #instabooks #read
“For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain.” 📖The inscription says 79, but the publication date is printed as 1866 📚Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote beautiful poetry in spite of a horrible, literally scarring experience in his life. You see, Longfellow wore a beard because he could no longer shave due to burns on his face he acquired trying to save his wife’s life. Her dress had caught fire, and when he was unable to put it out using a rug, he held her to him and attempted to put out the flames himself. She died shortly after, and he never fully recovered physically or emotionally. Sometimes, his more hopeful writing catches me off-guard knowing what he experienced. #americanpoet #henrywadsworthlongfellow #longfellow #sadstory #poetry #authors #americanauthor #rain #sadness #beautifulbook #antiquarian #marbled #spine #booklot #pages #prettycover #coverart #oldbooks #peace #realpeople @unioncollege
When I was a kid I was OBSESSED with The Rangers Apprentice series. How obsessed you ask? Well, I once spent an afternoon figuring out how old Will (the main character) would be according to a 10 month calendar. Since when I was 9 I thought a 15 year old was way too old for a MC, and according to a 10 month calendar, Will would have been 12 which was much more tolerable. . . . Do you have any books you were obsessed with? . . . #rangersapprentice #knives #bowandarrows #reading #prettycover #yabooks #bookstagram #bookish #bookstagrammers #bibliophile #booklover #booklove #bookinsta #bookphotos #words #coverlove #booklife #bookgeek

I finished #WeMustBeBrave a couple of weeks ago now and forgot to post my review! 🤦🏻‍♀️ . Firstly HOW GORGEOUS is the cover? It is beautiful and you should get it just for that! The book is out now and my review is below -has anyone else read this? I NEED to talk with you about the mariage blanc! ______ Honestly, other readers are going to adore this book, and there were parts of it that I found utterly engrossing. Ellen is - in all ways you can mean this - a love. She is kind, caring and she is a resolute survivor. Her relationship with her foster daughter is the main focus of this novel, but her friendships and marriage are just as endearing. . This book paints a picture of how hard it is to love someone who you know you cannot keep. However, as historical fiction, I don't think it did as good a job of portraying the terror of the war - it was there in the background, but this book had a very Call the Midwife crossed with literary fiction vibe and I'm just not sure I was feeling it. It dragged for me, it felt like the book was trying too hard t hinge solely on one relationship and was overdoing being 'literary' in how it was written. . Overall, I think this was a well written book, but it didn't pack the historical terror or the emotional punch for me to truly connect with it. I think those who want to read such books, though, will absolutely love it. . #AdvanceReviewer #FrancesLiardet #CatOnBook #PrettyCover #ReviewedByJes #HistoricalFiction #ww2fiction #ARC #ReadMore #ReadersParadise #BookLoverProblems #ReadingWomen

I somehow just recently came across the School of Fear middle-grade series, and it looks like so much fun. I got my copy from @silverfirebooks & if you use HAPPY10 on her site, you get 10% off! I'm really excited to check this one out soon, and I love the cover 😍. Here's the synopsis: . . For the first time--maybe ever--Madeleine, Theo, Lulu, and Garrison are not looking forward to the start of summer, and three little words are to blame: School of Fear. In what they're sure will be the longest and most terrifying six weeks of their lives, the foursome must face their phobias head-on as students of the exclusive and elusive school. There's no homework or exams. But if they don't conquer their fears by the end of the summer, they'll find out just how frightening failing can be. . .

Thanks to the Book Gods! Another book from my never-ending wishlist was placed in my path at the weekend...so of course I brought it home.

Happy Monday, friends! . . . After working non-stop today, I finally wrote a review for The Curiosities by @susanbgloss , which comes out tomorrow!!!! I received an uncorrected proof copy from @williammorrowbooks and @tlcbooktours ! I loved this book, by the way! And the cover is absolutely stunning 😍 Go to the link in my bio to purchase a final copy! . . Review: . . The Curiosities by Susan Gloss is one of those books that creeps into your daily life, making you wonder what the characters are up to while you're not reading. I was completely invested in Nell and in the way she coped with the loss of her baby girl. I'm a huge art lover and fellow historian, so getting a glimpse into the lives of the artists--Odin, Annie (my favorite one), and Paige was such a treat. Something I particularly loved about this book was the way Gloss portrayed the different stages of grief and how time is such an important factor in helping a person heal. I kind of wanted a less open-ended ending because the historian in me wants facts! But, I understand the reasoning behind this undefined ending (even though I want to know more)--I won't spoil it though. Also, Josh is the best! . . FYI: Miscarriage triggers. The copy that I read was an uncorrected proof, which is why I believe the synopsis states Lois as one of the artists when in the actual text her name is Paige. There might also be other inconsistencies that I don't know of and won't know of unless I read the final copy. Who knows, maybe Gloss decided to give us a different ending. I gave this book 4/5 on @goodreads . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #booksbooksbooks #bookish #thecuriosities #bookishgirl #artistsofinstagram #prettycover #bookcover #coverlove #coverlust #beautifulbooks #bookobsessed #bookhoarder #amreading #readersofinstagram #readinglife #booklife #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookreview #bookblogger #booknerds #booksonbooks #booklovers
One of my current #lohfreadathon reads is White is for Witching, and I'm loving it so far! Both @gowsy33 & @ouija.doodle.reads enjoyed this one, so that's always a good sign. It's a little bit confusing at times, but the writing is gorgeous, and I'm hooked. Here's the synopsis: . . There’s something strange about the Silver family house in the closed-off town of Dover, England. Grand and cavernous with hidden passages and buried secrets, it’s been home to four generations of Silver women—Anna, Jennifer, Lily, and now Miranda, who has lived in the house with her twin brother, Eliot, ever since their father converted it to a bed-and-breakfast. The Silver women have always had a strong connection, a pull over one another that reaches across time and space, and when Lily, Miranda’s mother, passes away suddenly while on a trip abroad, Miranda begins suffering strange ailments. An eating disorder starves her. She begins hearing voices. When she brings a friend home, Dover’s hostility toward outsiders physically manifests within the four walls of the Silver house, and the lives of everyone inside are irrevocably changed. At once an unforgettable mystery and a meditation on race, nationality, and family legacies, White is for Witching is a boldly original, terrifying, and elegant novel by a prodigious talent. . . #whiteisforwitching #helenoyeyemi #currentread #emilyscurrentread #currentlyreading #wihmx #blackhistorymonth #ladiesofhorrorfiction #wihm #womeninhorrormonth #prettycover #gothic #horror #horrorbooks #horrorreads #bookish #bookstagram #bookporn #booklover #bibliophile #igreads #instabook #booksofinsta #booksofig #bookishfeatures #bookfeaturepage

I hit 50k words in my Orchard WIP today, so here's some tidbits about the story! - 🍏Setting: medieval fantasy orchard 🍏Lots of Pagan/Wiccan Elements (thus the necklace in this pic lol) 🍏My MC is blonde and sassy. 🍏The romantic storyline has already broken my heart. 💔 - I tend to be very secretive with my writing because honestly (it may be arrogant of me to think this would happen) I'm terrified of someone running off with my ideas. I'm trying to be more open (to build some hype tbh) but some things will just be a secret until I finish and edit the book.🤷‍♀️ - #amwriting #writingcommunity #writerslife

✨ “No, I know,” Levi said. “But it’s not you. You don’t push through every moment. You pay attention. You take everything in. I like that about you—I like that better.” Cath closed her eyes and felt tears catch on her cheeks. “I like your glasses,” he said. “I like your Simon Snow T-shirts. I like that you don’t smile at everyone, because then, when you smile at me.… Cather.” He kissed her mouth. “Look at me.” She did. “I choose you over everyone.” -Fangirl ✨ I was so so so SO excited to get this Fangirl candle from @mlc_co ! The first time I read Fangirl, I finished it in one sitting. I’ve read it at least two more times since. Just looking for a quote to use today made me want to read it again. I relate to Cath’s anxiety, and I love how Levi pulls her out of her shell. He makes my heart do little flutters, he’s just so adorable. ✨ This candle smells like oak moss, amber and vetiver. I’ve got it burning as I type this, and it’s such a rich, cozy, semi sweet smell I just love it. It’s the perfect scent for a relaxing bath, or a day curled up with a book. It really makes me want to crawl back in my sheets but hey, work is fast approaching. ✨ Right now if you purchase a product from @mlc_co you get one for 50% off!

"I am the fucking apocalypse." . . Cruel Works of Nature is Gemma Amor's debut collection of 11 short stories that each come with an illustration (drawn by the author). I read this book with the #nightworms review group, and I absolutely loved it! Gemma's stories are creepy, entertaining, and creative. The disturbing cover caught my attention, and it's probably going to be one of my favorite covers for this year. It was so difficult to narrow down my favorites. I enjoyed all of the stories in this collection! For today, my top three stories are Jack in the Box, It Sees You When You're Sleeping, and Sketchbook. But then Black Sand and Girl on Fire are also so damn good. And Path Through the Lower Fell. I'm a failure at choosing my favorites. This just proves how good the collection is. My full 5⭐ review is up on GoodReads! . . Bones for #ladiesofhorrorfiction - a couple of the stories have bones & Sweet for #nightwormschallenge - some of the stories seem like they could be sweet, and then usually turn out not to be sweet at all 😂 . . #cruelworksofnature #gemmaamor #bookreview #bookhappyreviews #emilyscurrentread #wihmx #nightwormsreviews #lohfreadathon #wihm #womeninhorrormonth #prettycover #bathcaddy #bathbomb #bookandcandle #bookandwine #shortstories #bookish #bookstagram #bookporn #booklover #bibliophile #igreads #instabook #booksofinsta
Still hoarding candy canes from Christmas. And my mom found this little box I made her when I was little and apparently I was very stubborn about doing it on my own 😂 there’s nothing sweet about the Belles though. I can’t say I was surprised by any of the twists, more that they were so brutal I was hoping I was wrong and just a super jaded person. The next book comes out in March and I’m filled with excited anxiety for the ride it’s going to take me on! - - - #grimdragon - “sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world” #thesexybromancereadalong - switching positions - plot twist #nightwormschallenge - sweet - - - - - - - - - - #bookchallenge #bibliophile #booklover #bookworm #booknerd #bookdragon #reading #reader #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookish #bookphoto #bookjunkie #reader #books #biblio #dhonielleclayton #thebelles #prettycover #coverbuy
#ashieldmaidensbirthday Day 18 - blood feud: character you'd like to take revenge on? . KONSTANTIN KONSTANTIN KONSTANTIN! I get so furious even thinking about him 😤 I didn't think there could be any character I would hate more passionately than Umbridge but he's proved me wrong 🙈 I've hated him from the beginning but what he did in the last book was the tip of the iceberg. I can't get into details because of spoilers but if you've read the book you probably know what I'm talking about. If I had been Vasya I would have made sure he dies the slowest and most cruel death ever *sorrynotsorry* .

{🇩🇪 Deutsch in den Kommentaren. ⬇️} 🇬🇧🇺🇸 Who are your favorite indie authors? I have a quite a few favorites and I’m always excited for new releases. However, from time to time I love to take a chance on new indie authors, such as @lspauthor. Pullen, who’s from England, has been on my radar for quite a few months now. I read her debut novel, Where the Heart is, in a day - it was that good! You can find my review on the blog and the blurb below. ♥️ ••• BLURB: Felicity Jamison could never have imagined how one fateful night would change her life. Compelled to stay away from the only place she’s ever felt at home, has meant losing her best friend and first love, Nate Davenport. Fate now intervenes leaving her with no other choice but to return. Not only does she harbour demons of her own, she carries with her a secret that threatens to destroy an entire family. Nate has experienced his fair share of grief, what he didn't expect was for Felicity to walk back into his life, a mere shadow of the girl he used to know. Angry and hurt, the last thing he is willing to admit is how much he needs her. Will he risk turning to her for comfort? Together, can they move past a heart-breaking revelation or are they destined to be apart forever? . . . . . . . . . . #indieauthor #lspullen #wheretheheartis #england #love #romance #prettycover #coverlove #paperback #bookish #bookaholic #bookobsessed #bookalicious #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #review #4stars #bibliophile
The Hotel Between by Sean Easley. 4⭐️ - The Hotel Between is a magical place with doors opening up to places all around the world, and twins Cameron and Cassia are drawn into it on a quest to find out what happened to their parents. This book is a fast read with gorgeous settings, fun characters, and many twists and turns. The only thing I had trouble with was that hinges and pins and a concept called binding never did sort themselves out in my mind. But that being said, this book is a great adventure and has a lot of heart. I have every intention to read book number two in the series when it‘s released later this year. 🐘🐅 . . . . 🦓🐆 #thehotelbetween #seaneasley #books #bookstagram #booklover #bookworm #reading #bookaddict #ilovebooks #bookcover #book #bookaholic #bookish #fiction #booknerd #bookhunterinsta #prettycover #middlegrade #mgbooks #kidlit #mglit #beautifulcover #middlegradebooks #middlegradefiction #mgfiction #mgreads #kidsbooks #kidbookstagram #read2019
