I would love to be considered for either role as a rep or an influencer. Even if I’m not chosen I will continue to support you as your candles are amazing and you are are as well. I really have enjoyed getting to know you (that’s what I love about this bookish community is that so many people are welcoming and friendly), it’s also nice to know another person who has children who watch polar express when it’s not Christmas time 😂😂 there really needs to be a support group for that 🙌🏻🙌🏻 . . Thank you for your consideration, good luck with your search and best of luck to everyone else who enters.

Seventeen-year-old Twylla lives in the castle. But although she's engaged to the prince, Twylla isn't exactly a member of the court. . . She's the executioner. . . As the Goddess embodied, Twylla instantly kills anyone she touches. Each month she's taken to the prison and forced to lay her hands on those accused of treason. No one will ever love a girl with murder in her veins. Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly makes him immune to Twylla's fatal touch, avoids her company. . . But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose easy smile belies his deadly swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he's able to look past Twylla's executioner robes and see the girl, not the Goddess. Yet Twylla's been promised to the prince, and knows what happens to people who cross the queen. . . However, a treasonous secret is the least of Twylla's problems. The queen has a plan to destroy her enemies, a plan that requires a stomach-churning, unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what it takes to protect her kingdom? Or will she abandon her duty in favour of a doomed love? . . I forgot to share with all you lovelies the #bookstababesmay19 #photochallenge all you have to do to participate is post a photo based on the day’s prompt. We will be doing shoutouts each day as usual. . . Please check out my lovely co-hosts they are all amazing. @my_heart_is_booked @theschadlershelves @shaked_reads @inkandpaperwanderlust @thewildmageslibrary @thebooknerd90 @cuddlewithbooks @myweekisbookedblog @chaptermalliumpkin @lifecatsandbookchats @mollythegemini @gottcarl82 @beckybooksandall @readwritedesign @restlessreading . . #thesineatersdaughter #melindasalisbury #hardback #yafantasy #greenbook #coverbuy #whiteroses #butterflies #flatlay #bookphotography #creativebookphotography #creativebookstagram #scarf #pearls #greenbutterfly #yellowbutterfly

[Unpaid Ad] . . All the women in Iris and Malina’s family have the unique magical ability or “gleam” to manipulate beauty. Iris sees flowers as fractals and turns her kaleidoscope visions into glasswork, while Malina interprets moods as music. But their mother has strict rules to keep their gifts a secret, even in their secluded sea-side town. Iris and Malina are not allowed to share their magic with anyone, and above all, they are forbidden from falling in love. . . But when their mother is mysteriously attacked, the sisters will have to unearth the truth behind the quiet lives their mother has built for them. They will discover a wicked curse that haunts their family line—but will they find that the very magic that bonds them together is destined to tear them apart forever? . . I recieved a copy of #wickedlikeawildfire by @lanalyte in my #spring #hangover @bigbookloverbox and really can not wait to read this as it sounds so good and just my kind of book. . . If you love romance books, you need to check out this amazing #bookbox and don’t forget if you order you can get 10% off your next box with the code: BookNerd . . QOTD: what magical ability would you love to have? . . AOTD: I would love the ability to create and manipulate all plant life 🌱 I could then create new plants that cure any ailment or disease. I could also manipulate plants to effuse different scents which could have different effects on people...good or bad depending on the situation and if they were good people...in case I was in a life/death situation...I have thought this through 😂 . . #lanapopovic #paperback #purplebooks #flatlay #bigbookloverbox #bigbookloverboxes #springbox #romancereader #romance #yafantasy #yabooks #coverbuy #beautifulcover #toberead #yareads #bookphotography #creativebookphotography #creativebookstagram #bookstamums #booksandflowers #booksandbutterflies #whiteroses #katherinetegenbooks

Happy Friday everyone, hope it has been treating you well. . . I just had to share this beauty of an ARC with you all. If you swipe through my photos the last photo shows you all the “I Heart Hawaii” goodies that I recieved from the amazingly talented @lindseykelk and @harpercollinsuk and the lovely @rachelmayquin . . If any of you saw my unboxing for this ARC and all it’s goodies (it’s in my highlights if you want to have a look) you will know I am a massive fan of Lindsey Kelk, she is one of my favourite authors. I remember getting my first copy of “I heart New York” with a magazine and I’ve been hooked ever since with her writing, her characters and the laugh out loud moments...which have been a plenty. This series has a special place in my heart and my husband used to buy Lindsey’s latest book for me for Christmas each year as he knew how much the series meant to me. . . I honestly was so shocked to be contacted and asked if I wanted an advance copy...I may have squealed with excitement when I first read that message 😂 and of course my answer was going to be YES!! . . This book is out on the 30th May 2019 for anyone that is interested. Honestly if you love a feel good romance which is relatable and laugh out moments then I can’t recommend this series enough. Even if you cant read this book right now, go to goodreads and add this book series to your shelf to be read, you won’t regret it. I honestly can’t wait to read this beauty, as I just love this story so much and know that this book is going to be amazing, going by every other book of Lindsey’s I have read. . . QOTD: what destination would you love to visit? . . AOTD: I would love to visit Rome 😍😍 there is just so much culture and so much to see and experience there 💕 . . #lindseykelk #iheartseries #ihearthawaii #iheartlindsey #harpercollins #ARC #proofcopy #bookphotography #booksandflowers #creativebookphotography #creativebookstagram #flatlay #bookmarks #butterflies #bookishcandle #booksleeve #romance #favouriteauthor #romcom #bookstagram #booksbreathemagic
