We love anything to do with Dragons! And our nephews adore them too 😂 our favourite book has to be 'The last Namsara' what's your favourite book with dragons??
Do you usually eat breakfast? I always love to eat breakfast, I really think it’s important especially today god I had the most stressful Monday, thank god the day is over 😩😩😩
Do you like baking? What about magic?
A huge thank you to @ckaireluana
for sending me a copy of her gorgeous book, The Confectioner's Guild! This book is so pretty and I can't wait to dive in! What do you think?
A magic cupcake. A culinary killer. The perfect recipe for murder.
Wren knew her sweet treats could work wonders, but she never knew they could work magic. She barely has time to wrap her head around the stunning revelation when the head of the prestigious Confectioner’s Guild falls down dead before her. Poisoned by her cupcake.
Now facing murder charges in a magical world she doesn’t understand, Wren must discover who framed her or face the headsman’s axe. With the help of a handsome inspector and several new friends, Wren just might manage to learn the ropes, master her new powers, and find out who framed her. But when their search for clues leads to a deep-rooted conspiracy that goes all the way to the top, she realizes that the guild master isn’t the only one at risk of death by chocolate.
If Wren can’t bring the powerful culprit to justice, she and her friends will meet a bittersweet end.
The Confectioner’s Guild is a delicious YA fantasy mystery. If you like spunky chefs and twisty mysteries with a drizzle of romance, then you’ll love Claire Luana’s scrumptious tale that’s sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Fani Louise Jensen, szykujcie portfele na mały wydatek i siebie na nieprzespane noce! Nie wypuścicie tej książki z rąk, dopóki nie przeczytacie jej do końca 😊
Po raz kolejny Jensen udaje się zaciekawić czytelnika i zaserwować mu dość niecodzienną tematykę, która skupia się na prozopagnozji - niezdolności do rozpoznawania rysów twarzy. Zaburzenie tego typu pojawia się u Alison - głównej bohaterki - po tytułowej randce (z piekła rodem), gdy budzi się w mieszkaniu, nie pamiętając absolutnie niczego z minionej nocy. Co gorsza, od momentu "wypadku" na randce, ktoś ewidentnie uprzykrza jej życie, prześladuje ją i doprowadza na skraj załamania nerwowego. I tu wielkie brawa da autorki: Jensen wie, jak pisać o stalkerach i utrzymać napięcie, udzieliło mi się zdenerwowanie Alison i przez większość lektury odczuwałam niesłabnący dreszczyk lekkiego niepokoju 😎
Malutki minus za to, że już w połowie lektury udało mi się poprawnie wytypować sprawcę, nie zrażajcie się jednak moimi słowami, rozwiązanie zagadki wcale nie jest oczywiste, a autorka świetnie myli tropy. Koniecznie będziecie chcieli się dowiedzieć, kim jest tajemniczy randkowicz i co popycha go do nękania Ali. "Randka" z pewnością umili Wam jesienne wieczory. Czytajcie, jeśli zależy Wam na lekturze, od której ciężko się oderwać 😊

He has chosen beautiful, completely new photography, helping to illustrate the book in a much greater way than was possible forty years ago.

What show do you like to binge watch?
Did you know the star of Netflix's Jessica Jones @therealkrystenritter
is also an author? Her novel BONFIRE is "A phenomenal, haunting debut."
It has been 10 years since Abby Williams left home and scrubbed away all visible evidence of her small-town roots. Now working as an environmental lawyer in Chicag, she has a thriving career, a modern apartment, and her pick of meaningless one-night stands.
But when a new case takes her back home to home to Barrens, Indiana, the life Abby painstakingly created begins to crack. Tasked with investigating Optimal Plastics, the town's economic heart, Abby begins to find strange connections to a decade-old scandal involving the popular Kaycee Mitchell and her friends-just before Kaycee disappeared for good.
But as Abby tries desperately to find out what happened to Kaycee, troubling memories begin to resurface and she begins to doubt her own observations. And when she unearths an even more disturbing secret, her search threatens the reputations, and lives, of the community and risks exposing a darkness that may consume her.

Q: What was the last book you were impressed with? That has left you speechless? Or you just simply liked it very much? 📖
A: For me it's definitely the book in the photo, Profiler. I didn't read at all during the summer, and before that I read only two books, so this is basically the first book I managed to finish in a while, and man, it was so, so good! I need a day or two to write down my thoughts and completely understand what I read, so you can expect a blog post this week. Can't wait to tell you more about Profiler! 😱😍❤️
New week, new chances! How are you doing this fine Monday in October?
So it's probably not a super big surprise that I really like music. Movie soundtracks inspire me especially when I'm writing. James Powell, Alan Silvestri, Hans Zimmerman, Joe Hisaishi- just a few masters of music who can tell stories in a span of a few minutes. It got me to thinking: If your book was to be turned into a movie or TV series, who would be your dream composer?
Have a great week, everyone!💕
🌿A book you thought you would love but ending up hating?🌿
Honestly couldn't get into sky painted gold the writing style really put me off but the cover is so gorgeous I can't help but want to give it another go. I also don't like Red Rising or the Grisha Trilogy ahhh🙈🙈😱
Today our lecture asked us where we hope to be in 3 years time and I legit have no idea so I'm just sitting here stressing out about life and my career right now so yey😭
Anche la notte ti somiglia,
la notte remota che piange
muta, dentro il cuore profondo,
e le stelle passano stanche.
Una guancia tocca una guancia
è un brivido freddo, qualcuno
si dibatte e t'implora, solo,
sperduto in te, nella tua febbre.
La notte soffre e anela l'alba,
povero cuore che sussulti.
O viso chiuso, buia angoscia,
febbre che rattristi le stelle,
c'è chi come te attende l'alba
scrutando il tuo viso in silenzio.
Sei distesa sotto la notte
come un chiuso orizzonte morto.
Povero cuore che sussulti,
un giorno lontano eri l'alba.
Per la rubrica #unapoesiaperlasettimana
ideata dalla fantastica @velenodinchiostro
partecipo con questa bellissima poesia di Pavese e ringrazio @the.book.in.my.bag
per l'invito. ♥️
«L'autore ne è il protagonista assoluto, vestendo i panni ora della notte, ora del cuore; di chi implora e di chi, febbricitante, aspetta l'alba, probabilmente di una nuova vita, quella che, alla fine, non ha avuto.»
Buona serata. 🖤

October, please slow down 🙏🏻😩 One of the books I’m reading this month is this find from @bookofthemonth
! Review to come later 🤗 Anybody else a sucker for big books? 😝
I’ve already read “The Lies We Told”, which is another BOTM pick for this month. They could not have picked a better pick for something spooky 😳 Highly recommend you read that one in daylight 😅
Anyway, I’m working on getting caught up on all the book reviews for this month! I have to transcribe them from the notes in my phone 😬 But everything should be up-to-date by tomorrow evening 🤗
How’s everyone’s October going? Looking for some pumpkin carving ideas so lay ‘em in me 👇🏻🎃👇🏻 #fallishere
Want to win a blind date with a book? Check out our site for what book could be up for grabs. Follow, like and comment with your preferred genre! Winner will be announced on the 22nd.
A classic October read today ⚰🎃 I think I'll put together a small list of Halloween books and post them on here? Or maybe I'll post one book everyday or so? I'll just wait and see 👻
Frankenstein tells the story of committed science student Victor Frankenstein. Obsessed with discovering the cause of generation and life and bestowing animation upon lifeless matter, Frankenstein assembles a human being from stolen body parts but; upon bringing it to life, he recoils in horror at the creature's hideousness. Tormented by isolation and loneliness, the once-innocent creature turns to evil and unleashes a campaign of murderous revenge against his creator, Frankenstein. 🍃
My rate: 4.5/5
My thoughts: I suppose I had some preconceived notions about this book that weren't entirely correct. Many people made it seem as though the monster is bad but, really, hes just a sad creature who doesn't understand his existence. I felt sympathy for the creature and his life, something I didn't expect

1 week from today: the cover reveal for The Bad Boy Issue! Currently browsing the photoshoot for teaser ideas. See any you like? 👀
“It is true, we shall be monsters, cut off from all the world; but on that account we shall be more attached to one another.” 🌍 Mary Shelley - Frankenstein
It’s only two weeks until Halloween and I couldn’t be more excited 🍂 Aside from Halloween parties, I’m mostly looking forward to our university reading week (aka a much-needed week off 🎉) commencing on the 29th and spending the week in Cardiff for my boyfriend’s birthday 🧛🏼♂️ Hopefully I’ll be able to devour a few books in that time 📚 My Autumnal read recommendation of the day is, of course, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein 🧟♂️ Admittedly I do associate this book far more with summer because I studied it both at A Level and degree level and always re-read it in the run up to exams but you also can’t get much more Halloween-y than Frankenstein 🤷🏼♀️
TELL ME: What is your favourite book to read at this time of the year? @readersgonnareadpod
recommended a few great Autumnal books in this week’s podcast! I’ve already added Bird Box to my wish list ☠️
It’s cover reveal day for @valialind
’s third Skazka book, Majyk Reclaimed. Isn’t it gorgeous? Swipe to see the map I illustrated for this series, it was so fun including all the Russian folk tale elements. Scroll down to learn more about the book:
This is no happy fairy tale…the battle is raging and the fate of Skazka hangs in the balance.
Calista has given up everything. Her heart. Her choice. Her freedom.
Surrounded by enemies at every side, the fate of the kingdom lies on her shoulders. After the invasion, the people of Skazka are scared and it’s up to Calista to lead them to safety. But how can she do so when everything about her is a lie. She is not fit to rule the kingdom and the land knows it.
While the evil enchantress from her childhood stories stands at her side as an advisor, the queen she has served faithfully is trying to kill her. With the love of her life no longer by her side, she doesn’t know whom to trust. Storms are raging outside the walls. Both the eastern and northern fronts are close to failing. Calista is ready for the fight, but when the truth about her heart comes out, she must go on a quest to retrieve it. Before Vasilisa can get to the chest and unleash her wrath upon it.
It’s time for Calista to embrace every aspect of her majyk. Even if it means becoming what she has feared all along.
RELEASE DATE: Winter 2018

“Graves are things we walk upon, and must walk away from.” - @derrickbrownpoetry
Portal tombs are one of the most fascinating features in Ireland. Fashioned like a chamber with a stone door at one end, they argue for the ability to cross from one life into another in simple terms. I stood inside this one for probably ten minutes, listening only to the whisper of the sea against limestone hundreds of feet below, wondering about how many peoples and how many cultures have considered movement through worlds. It’s the sort of inquiry that boggles me because there can be no clarity, no definitive answer, no evidence. And still, who can help but wonder?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫/5 for BLACKLISTED
Blacklisted is a fascinating look at a shameful time in American history when the ideals of freedom of speech and civil liberties were thrown aside in favor of censorship. Nineteen men from the film industry (screenwriters, producers, actors and directors) were put on trial in front of the House of Representatives' Committee on Un-American Activities, chaired by J. Parnell Thomas. The men were accused of being communists who made films that attempted to subvert American opinion. None of the men accused were allowed to read their defendant statements even though the previous week their accusers were allowed to do so. The first ten men interrogated, called the Hollywood Ten, refused to answer questions of the committee on the grounds that it was a violation of their First Amendment rights. In response, Congress cited them for contempt and they were blacklisted from working in Hollywood. Many served prison sentences and found it difficult to ever find work again, although some used pseudonyms. Very few members of Congress objected to the citations and public opinion turned against the Hollywood Ten in large measure, as well. Lives were ruined and the Blacklist continued to grow to hundreds of people. .
Brimner presents information in chronological order and makes extensive use of primary source material like photographs, political cartoons and quotes. The author's note at the end connects these historical events to modern times; our current polarized political climate faces some of these questions about security vs. Constitutional freedom even today. This is an excellent title for use in research projects and for students who are personally interested in the Cold War era of American history. Includes a bibliography, source notes and an index.
My only complaint? I wanted to know more! Many of the screenwriters who were accused of communism were very progressive thinkers (including anti-racist ideas) for their time. I would have loved to see examples of some of their work.
My new read is here cant wait to start reading it😍...Rosewood Chronicles princess in practice
