Happy Monday everyone🌻🌸 Starting from today for the next 5 days i will be recommending my favourite dark romances that you should must read and these are going to be for the beginners as well for those who have already ventured into this genre . #Day1 : The corrupt series by @penelope.douglas The epitome of dark romance genre 4⭐️ (overall rating ) •••• Erika I was told that dreams were our heart’s desires. My nightmares, however, became my obsession. His name is Michael Crist. My boyfriend’s older brother is like that scary movie that you peek through your hand to watch. He's handsome, strong, and completely terrifying. The star of his college’s basketball team and now gone pro, he’s more concerned with the dirt on his shoe than me. But I noticed him. I saw him. I heard him. The things that he did, and the deeds that he hid…For years, I bit my nails, unable to look away. Now, I’ve graduated high school and moved on to college, but I haven’t stopped watching Michael. He’s bad, and the dirt I’ve seen isn’t content to stay in my head anymore. Because he’s finally noticed me. Michael Her name is Erika Fane, but everyone calls her Rika. My brother’s girlfriend grew up hanging around my house and is always at our dinner table. She looks down when I enter a room and stills when I am close. I can always feel the fear rolling off of her, and while I haven’t had her body, I know that I have her mind. That’s all I really want anyway. Until my brother leaves for the military, and I find Rika alone at college. In my city. Unprotected. The opportunity is too good to be true, as well as the timing. Because you see, three years ago she put a few of my high school friends in prison, and now they’re out. We’ve waited. We’ve been patient. And now every last one of her nightmares will come true. #booksofinstagram #bookishlove #bookaddict #bookrecommendations #darkromance #romancereaders #dark #bookstagram #bookholic #bookphoto #igreads #instabooks #bookcommunity #bookobsessed #bookpost #booklovers #bookbloggers #bookblog #read #goodreads #fiction #novel #bookstagramfeatures #bookworm
I expected this book to be about an imaginary friend, an imaginary cat. And there was a cat, a giant one named Crenshaw, who happens to be imaginary . It opens really cute with a boy spotting Crenshaw on a surfboard . But the reality of this boy’s life soon enters the story. Crenshaw made his first appearance when Jackson and his family had to live out of their minivan. His parents used to be musicians but his father has MS and his mother now works part-time jobs to get by. And now, a few years later, he’s back again, when things seem to be not going as well. Jackson, who’s heading into fifth grade, wishes his parents would realize that he’s old enough to understand their financial difficulties. Jackson is scared that they have to go back to living in their car again. And Crenshaw, with his cartwheels, splits, and penchant for bubble baths, both helps to distract him and understand their situation. We listened to this audiobook and I was surprised by how much my kids enjoyed it. I had to stop the audiobook here and there just to make sure the 5yo (and sometimes the 8yo) understood what was going on. We haven’t quite read a book like Crenshaw before, one which talked about hunger and poverty and eviction. I had to explain about eviction - and as I did I was thankful that this was something we’ve never had to worry about. Perhaps it was because of this audiobook that I started on my current nonfiction read, Evicted. #readersofinstagram #reallifereading 📚 #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #bibliophile #bookrecommendations #amreading #booknerd #books #booklover #reallifereading #readthis #kidsbooks #kidsbookstagram #crenshaw #katherineapplegate

5 stars. What can I even say about this masterpiece of a book? What can I even say that hasn't been said? After reading The Handmaid's Tale, I can see why this dystopian classic has made such an impression on so many. This is a book that definitely hangs with you. It is a book that needs to be read and taken in by the readers. This was my first Atwood and it most definitely won't be my last! Her writing is just stunning. Highly recommended. #bookstagram #bookstoread #bookrecommendations #bibliophile #instadaily #instabook #booklover #bookobsessed #bookstagramer #margaretatwood #thehandmaidstale #books #bookworm #booktography #bookphotography #foodandbooks #booklife #classic #literature #literaturelovers
⭐️⭐️ REVIEW 🌟🌟 Synopsis: the story of an Mia, an artist, and her daughter Pearl who travel the country looking for inspiration and ideas. Ultimately, they settle in Shaker Heights, Ohio... Pearl enters new relationships and friendships while Mia struggles with conformity. Drama, nonetheless, pursues as Pearl integrates herself into the “perfect family.” In the end, a lot of family tensions, past relationships, and difficult choices are brought to light. Review: I wanted join in on the hype of this book; however, the fiction is stretched too far at times. Too many unlikely events happened for my liking - making the story so much less believable. I did, however, love the identity and individuality of each character - wonderfully developed and unique. The ending was very frustrating and unfulfilling for me as well.

A few years ago someone gave me a copy of Mrs. Spitzer's Garden by Edith Pattou. It's a great book for #earthday because the central metaphor is that plants (like children) needs different things to grow and thrive. It reminded me of the importance of teaching children to appreciate nature (and each other) in all it's diverse glory. Teaching children to care for our planet also teaches them to care for themselves and each other. If you want to do something to help the earth today, or any day, teach a child about nature. Plant something with your child and take care of it together. The rewards are endless for you, your child and our planet. . . . #books #bookstagram #bookrecommendations #mrsspitzersgarden #edithpattou #childrensbooks #childrensliterature #illustration #triciatusa #earthday2019 #gogreen #everylittlebitcounts #happyearthday #greenliving #picturebooks
★COVER REVEAL★ DIRTY POOL | Bethany-Kris Standalone Romantic Suspense Release Date: April 29th (For B&N / iTunes): B&N: http://bit.ly/2VUMMGJ iTunes: https://apple.co/2VfqySw May 6th (For Amazon): Amazon: https://geni.us/DirtyPoolAMZ ・・・ Goodreads: http://bit.ly/2ULU6rH ・・・ Blurb: To get what he wants, he’ll have to play a game of dirty pool. Michel Marcello never wanted to be a mafioso like every other man in his family—he wanted to be more. That doesn’t mean he’s unfamiliar with the life, or that he can’t hold his own against other made men. They forgot where he came from … His chance encounter with the fiery and beautiful daughter of Detroit’s most notorious Irish mob boss stokes flames beyond the ones that ignite between Michel and Gabbie Casey. Rivals shouldn’t mix, but these opposites have never been more attracted, either. The lines between family loyalty, their duties, and responsibility begin to blur. Love ruins all. But these two aren’t the only ones playing this game, and it just became far more dangerous to get out alive. ・・・ #NewRelease #MafiaRomance #Erotic #RomanticSuspense #OrganizedCrime #dirtyconfessions #bookrecommendations #mustread #goodread #bookstagram #books #read #bookworm #reader #reading #blog #blogger #amazon #love #instabook #writing #bookclub #drama #bibliophile #contemporaryromance #igblogger #bookrelease #romance #emotional ・・・ Hosted by: @indiesage_pr
The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo: I wanted a little break between two related books, so I grabbed this one off my shelf. I know the story, as I’ve seen the movie adaptation, so it wasn’t super new and exciting to me. It’s obviously a children’s book, I know that, but there were a number of things I really didn’t like about it. I didn’t really like how the narrator directly spoke to the reader. And, I especially didn’t like how it villainizes rats. The plot isn’t great, and it doesn’t really focus on Despereaux. I didn’t really love it, but it is a cute little book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ ~dani • • •book #books #greatbook #bookrecommendations #ireccomend #ratreads #bookreview #mouse #thetaleofdespereaux #katedicamillo #thetaleofdespereauxkatedicamillo #katedicamillothetaleofdespereaux #childrenslit #childrensliterature #childrensbooks #cute #fairytale #threestars #threestarbook #threestarbooks
I loved this book. I couldn't believe this was the author's first book. This helped me understand African culture. It was really interesting to see the family line starting from women and how sister's sons are important in Fante culture. The book taught me about the way a tribal society functions, where a village stays together and tides over their bad fortunes together. How everywhere colonialism came because of the same problem of infighting among people. To them until very late, the other tribes and the colonialists were the same - Outsiders. Interesting to learn how one person's decisions and fate could influence generations to come. Each and every story was engaging. And since each person had a chapter, it was easier to digest that first and move on. My only regret is that some people didn’t get any closure at all and some people had an entirely bad life. While the people who were brought over to America were a victim of their circumstances, the people in Africa seemed to be more of a victim of their choices. I read about the actual Anglo-Asante wars. The Asante didn’t have to suffer like the people living as slaves in America. They still could make choices even if they didn’t have a lot of options. The conditions of the people kept as slaves by the tribes themselves are not that clear. Did people have a bad opinion about America alone because the lives of these people did not improve even after world war? It did seem like anyone could have had the misfortune of being captured as a slave in Africa since it had nothing to do with colour and more to do with tribes. The slavers are never suffering for any of their mistakes. Both the slavers of America and Africa were sometimes indifferent to other's suffering and sometimes actively indulging in it. Where is Karma? In the end, I would have loved for the knowledge to have passed down the ancestors instead of visions and spirits at the end. But I guess it symbolizes about loss - of family and history. This book just opened my world some more. Made me understand and remove my misconceptions about Africa, tribal people and the world as it was before all things that we learn in history.
Happy #EarthDay ! Our program manager Sarah Turnage started an office compost system, and this little bucket is consistently full 🍌🌱 . We also loved hosting nature writer Kathleen Dean Moore and pianist Rachelle McCabe earlier this year for their environmental advocacy performance, "A Call to Life". If you missed it, you can see photos from the event in our albums and view their "What can I do?" handout & other resources at RiverWalking.com .

Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and relaxing weekend! I took a few days off from social media, it was so nice to be able to just focus on spending time with my family and friends. 🤗 .......... I read Daytripper a week ago and it is by far my favorite graphic novel I have ever read. It really makes you realize how important our relationships to each other are, how sometimes the little moments are the most impactful, and not to dwell too much on death because it is inevitable. I cried for 10 minutes after reading and still keep thinking about it’s message. I think everyone can get something out of this graphic novel. I know it’s a little late but this is the prompt for the last #owlsmagicalphotos my favorite exam read so far. 💛
📚Dear Mrs Bird By A.J.Pearce 📚 I could not put this book down. I fell in love with all of the characters in this book, Emmy, Bunty, Bill, Charles, Kath and Mr Collins. This book has funny parts, sad parts, relatable parts and at one point is down right heartbreaking. Pearce manages to strike a perfect balance between all of these to create a truly lovely story for you to fall in love with. #ilovereading #ilovebooks #bookrecommendations #book #booklover #books #bookstagrammer #bookreview #booknerd #bookstagram #booklove #bookslover #dearmrsbird #ajpearce #ww2

Bound by his cursed heritage, shapeshifter Luc Agassou must constantly fight the call of the great cat that lives inside him.

If the darkness gets to the Ley line, then the whole town is doomed. . I won’t go down without a fight, but how can I fight something I can’t even see? . . #newrelease #goodreads #bookrecommendations #Paranormal #booksarelife #bookworm #greatreads #bookobsessed #totalbooknerd #readmorebooks #bookcollection #nowlive #bookblog #bookbloggers #ilovebooks #bookaddict #availablenow #bookclub #bookaholic #thornehillseries #emilygoodwin #mustread #socialbutterflypr @socialbutterfly_pr
So it was my birthday yesterday and my hubby surprised me by letting us get a new kitty 💞💞💞 now he wants all my attention and is constanly distracting me from my books. Also...

“Practice Perfect,” as the title hinted, is a how-to method book. I really enjoyed it and highlighted many notes. However, it couldn’t be half-long. The book chapters are not well-organized. Lemov, the author, breaks the core concepts(rethinking of practice, how to practice, using modeling, feedback, culture of practice and post-practice) into smaller and repetitious portions so that I could not connect every chapter in a straight way. - Below were some of the rules I felt applicable in this book: - Rethink practice and isolate your skills: Practicing in a hustle and bustle environment sometimes distracts me from recognizing I’m learning in the wrong way. So I participate in the learning workshops or study groups for getting feedback from the other members. I could re-examine what skills to be sharpened through rethinking. Then I break the difficult paths for isolated skill development. - Bright spot: Focus on your strength. Improving your weakness is a waste of time. In the past, I tried to learn different domain knowledge and skills for the sake of proving myself. However, these skills didn’t turn out to be a competitive work advantage. As a knowledge worker, you must make effective contributions to your cooperation. However, honing my weakness only makes me a mediocre worker. - Shorten the feedback loop: Implementing a small and easy change right away can be more effective than a complex rewiring a skill. So I usually try to post my thoughts on my Facebook after reading. - Replace your purpose with an object: I love to make a New Year’s resolution to improve myself over the next months. Unfortunately, after only a few short weeks, most of them failed. By writing a reflective journal, I know it’s not realistic. So I adjust my goals to make them specific and measurable. #writingbeing #readingchallenge #goodbooks #bookreview #aprilreads #bookrecommendations #nonfiction #writing #readingtime #bookstagrammer #careergoals #leadershipquotes #educational #weekendread #principles #selfhelpbooks #igreads #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #booklove #lovebooks #bookish #bookaddict #instabook #instaread #readstagram #currentlyreading #nowreading #whatimreading
Currently reading...🌸 What a gorgeous, sunny day again!

Happy Monday, friends! I realized I forgot to show you my book haul from over a week ago when I was visiting Colorado (😱). My stop at MacDonald Books was pretty magical, not just because it was a cozy bookstore in a log cabin, but because my friend knew someone who worked there and she let us take as many ARCs as we wanted because she was about to donate them all. I went bananas, but had to limit myself to a couple because I only flew there with a backpack. So I snagged DAISY JONES & THE SIX and MY SISTER THE SERIAL KILLER because...duh. Wasn’t going to pass those up. • And THEN I actually found $10 outside (see? magical), so I bought THR WORD FOR WOMAN IS WILDERNESS, which I just started reading. It’s a novel about a 19-year-old girl who believes that adventure stories shouldn’t be just for the boys, and decides to live in a cabin in Alaska on her own. I’m all about that, and it seemed like the perfect book to buy in a log cabin in Colorado. • What was your most recent snag from a bookstore that you are extremely excited about?
May’s magical, middle-grade reads are here! Eeeek! 🥳🎉🥳🎉. . I might cheat and start them early. How do I decide which one to read first? . Has anyone read any of these beauties? Can anyone help me decide which one to read first? . . . . . . #bookstagram #mglit #mgliterature #ya #yalit #youngadultbooks #bookobsessed #bookobsession #bookrecommendations #childrensliterature #bookaddicted #bookaddiction #middlegrademay #middlegrademonday
It's Monday! Starting the week off with a few inspirational #bookrecommendations 📚! The books mentioned below are by resilient women who persevered through various circumstances.Their powerful stories are raw and relatable, and you will definitely feel empowered after reading them. SN: I have known Rasheeda Alford, the author of Beautiful Scars, since childhood. She is a youth advocate, event planner, and a firm believer in "walking in your freedom." I believe her story will open your eyes to the true concept of love and self-worth. ~Peace, Love, & Happy Reading~
"The light and darkness are equal forces - partners, if you will - then there is a moment, very quick and quiet, where you can see the day giving into the night." - Alice in The Familiars by Stacey Halls This book is awesome. It tells the story of Fleetwood Shuttleworth, a recently married 17 year old in 17th century Lancashire. She has reason to believe that she and her child will die in childbirth, yet the only woman who can help her is to be sentenced to death for witchcraft. While I loved the action-packed story, my favourite thing about this book is the beautiful prose. In the beginning of chapter 2 for example, Fleetwood's husband is described through the clinking of the moneypouch on his waist belt that announces his - and his money's - arrival before he comes in the room, an imaginative way to show how his wealth and status precede him. I would recommend this book to just about anyone that enjoys fiction within historical settings - and especially if you're a fan of witches. ______________________ #book #books #bookworm #booklover #bookreview #bookreviews #bookrecommendations #bookrecommendation #fictionbooks #historicalfiction #readers #readersofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #currentlyreading
Thank you @hogarthbooks for the free book! 🍃 My current read, Normal People, is really convincing me what an amazing writer Sally Rooney is. She pulled me in with Conversations with Friends two years ago and now she’s doing it again. I’m hoping to finish it today while I’m recovering from chocolate bunnies, egg hunts and an overall really loud and crazy Sunday! 🍃 . . . #bookrecommendations #booksbooksbooks #bookclub #igbooks #igreads #bookstagram #normalpeople #sallyrooney #readingbooks #somanybooks
Преди дни от изд. Егмонт оповестиха, че ще издадат на български език дуологията на Лий Бардуго "Six of crows". Букстаграм бе моментално залят от вълна ентусиазирани постове и с право. Six of Crows разказва историята на шестима герои, които стоят възможно най-далеч от понятието за „съвестни и уважавани граждани“. . . В блога съм публикувала ревю, в което се опитвам да дам поне бегла представа защо тази дуология е толкова обичана, какво я прави уникална и защо всички се зарадваха толкова на новината за издаването й.
An insightful, surreal and a deeply moving tale! Meant to be read and reread over time. With every reading, one is likely to uncover different layers of meaning, perhaps at different points in life. . Paul Kalanithi is 36 years old neurosurgeon who is diagnosed with terminal cancer at the height of his professional career. Shocked and distraught by the terrible news, he is initially overcome by despair. His carefully planned and hard won future no longer exists and his personal identity crumbles with unrealized potential. However, he soon realizes that this is not the end and is rather the ‘end of the beginning’! Unsure of how much time he has on his hands and the doctors refusing to comment on the Kaplan-Meier survival curves, he is left at the crossroads of different paths in the face of mortality. . The fact of death is unsettling. Yet there is no other way to live. Deciding to get back to his work which was his true calling to having a child and finally writing about his journey so far, was not only daunting but also helped him to reinvent himself in many ways. With all the limited time that he had in his hands- less than two years and depleting strength in his body, he was still able to find meaning in love, turn to literature for answers, passionately enjoy his work and accept and bear the suffering of the illness that ensued. . One of my favourite reads of this year so far! I was able to hold myself back initially, but while reading the epilogue by his wife- Lucy, I almost broke down. This one will remain close to my heart for a long time! . Ending with the author’s closing lines dedicated to his 8 months old daughter: “..when you come to many moments in life, where you must give an account of yourself, provide a ledger of what you have been, and done, and meant to the world, do not I pray, discount that you filled a dying man’s days with a sated joy, a joy unknown to me in all my prior years, a joy that does not hunger for more and more but rests, satisfied.." . #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookreviews #bookstagrammer #appreciationpost #bookcommunity #bookworm #bookrecommendations #igreads #igbooks #readingaddict #readingbooks #booksbooksbooks
Life's impossible problems are just that, impossible. We're here to help. #bennettbooks
Wake up life is calling***RECOMMENDED*** . I felt free I felt light I felt wonderful I felt alive Life was calling and I was awake. . Well I'm pretty confused where should I start I finished this book in morning 4 am and now I want to sleep but, my eyes filled with tears. . There are two types of friends one who enjoy with you and other one who helps to grow. You have first type of friends because of same interest. And second type of friends are hard to get those you help to see reality of life. Who tells you truth no matter what. Do you have such friend? I'm glad i have. . This book revolves around such topics Friendship, truth, etc. Our Protagonist ankita have a dark past who is trying to cope up with up. She started her new life in bombay.

Sprocki requested a feature on bookstagram, because (in his words) 'I've got serious cat-model potential' - at which point he flopped down to display his generous girth, and I reluctantly cracked out my camera. Here he is featuring HIS favourite 'Simon's Cat' books, which he likes because they show just how ridiculous humans are. I'm thinking he looks pretty chilled (as always) which is perfect for #mellowmondaybooks . I'm on the road home today, so apologies if I'm slow in replying to messages. I'm actually missing Sprocket a fair bit, so I'll be glad to see him and the others tonight. 🐈 '𝐈 𝐛𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐞𝐯𝐞 𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐞 𝐬𝐩𝐢𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐬 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐡.

#bookburst #ktxx22reviews #thegirlinthetower by #katherinearden This is a phenomenal follow up/sequel to The Bear and the Nightingale! I am absolutely loving this series and I cannot wait to read the final book! Russian folklore, language, history, and just everything! I appreciate how respectful Arden is to this, and most importantly how informed the place she writes comes from! I get a real sense of this history and it’s importance. I feel like the research done to write this series was done so that the reader could enjoy it, but also so that we would walk away with more knowledge in regards to Russian history than we started! And I think that is the most valuable thing a book can offer. The fact that you glean information from an adult fantasy series like this really makes my heart happy. Easy ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 cannot recommend this enough. The audiobook was great because of the Russian pronunciations given for all the interesting terminology! #book #bookstagram #booksarelife #bookclub #bookworm #bookish #bookaholic #bookdragon #bookrecommendations #bookreview #bookreader #readingilikethatshit 📚 #readmorebooks #readmore #goodreads #200booksinayear #60secondbookreview #60secondreview #booktube #catchmeonyoutube #videoreview #audiobookstagram #audiobookreview #audiobook
Vendi i rrëfenjave- Magjia e dëshirës nga Chris Colfer “Magjia e dëshirës” është libri i parë i serisë “Vendi i rrëfenjave” i shkruar nga autori amerikan Chris Colfer, botuar për herë të parë në SHBA. Në serinë “Vendi i rrëfenjave” tregohet historia e dy binjakëve, Aleksia dhe Koner Bejlit, të cilët futen përmes një libri magjik në një dimension tjetër, ku jetojnë të gjithë personazhet e famshme të përrallave. Aleksia dhe Koner gjenden në njëvend magjishëm e të panjohur, ku ndodhin shumë të papritura dhe rreziqe e ku binjakët përballen me personazhet e përrallave të dashura që lexonin kurishin fëmijë. Bota e Aleksias dhe e Koner Bejlit ndryshoi tërësisht, kur gjyshja u dha binjakëve librin e saj të moçëm të përrallave. Ata as që mund ta imagjinonin se përmes tij do të përfundonin në një vend krejt të pazakontë, në vendin e rrëfenjave, ku përrallat janë reale. Aleksia dhe Koneri shpejt zbuluan se përrallat që ata njihnin qysh kur ishin fëmijë nuk kishin mbaruar, por vazhdonin të zhvilloheshin në këtë vend magjik: tashmë Flokarta është një rratisur e shumëkërkuar, Kësulëkuqja ka një mbretëri të sajën dhe mbretëreshë Hirushja është gati të bëhet nënë! Paçka se kjo është një botë e mrekullueshme, ata duan të kthehen në shtëpi, por me Mbretëreshën shtrigë që u është vënë pas gjurmëve të tyre, a do arrijnë t’ia dalin mbanë?! #vendiirrëfenjave #magjiaedëshirës #ChrisColfer #lexonilibra #libratemire #unelexoj #kendi_i_leximit #goodbooks #booklover #bookblogger #bookaddicted #bookaddiction #instabook #bibliophile #biblioterapia #bibliomania #bibliomaniac #bookish #goodreads #bookstagram #bookshelf #instabooks #books #goodreads #reading #readingtime #lovereading #igbooks #bookrecommendations #readerlife
Whew. I’ve never read a nonfiction book like Educated. It was riveting, and beautifully told. But at the same time, I found my heart pounding in fear over and over again. Her life is terrifying. Reading this book is like witnessing a train wreck, and someone crawls from the rubble and begins constructing an entirely new track. Westover’s resilience is a remarkable thing to behold, and also not the point of her sharing her story. She isn’t boastful at all- yet it was her resilience that most stood out to me. The abuse she survived to create a life of thriving for herself is unimaginable to me. This book offers an inside look at a cult-like family and the author’s struggle to survive and escape not only her physical situation, but the mental cage she had been locked in. She offers honest and insightful thoughts on these events, without casting blame. The footnotes are interesting in that they show how hard she is striving to be a reliable narrator of this tale- she acknowledges she may be mistaken, and shares the differing viewpoints other family members recall. If you’re hesitant with nonfiction, this would be a great toe in the water for you. It reads like fiction, to the point you have to remind yourself these are real people with high and vital aspects at stake, and not mere characters living in a fictional world. I’m so grateful to a good friend for loaning me this! #ShareAllTheBooks . . . #bookstagram #bibliophile #allthebooks #reading #bookreview #bookrecommendations #books #instareview #readingchallenge #readingchallenge2019 #book33of2019

🖤 COVER REVEAL 🖤 Dirty Pool By Bethany-Kris Releasing May 6th Blurb To get what he wants, he’ll have to play a game of dirty pool. . Michel Marcello never wanted to be a mafioso like every other man in his family—he wanted to be more. That doesn’t mean he’s unfamiliar with the life, or that he can’t hold his own against other made men. . They forgot where he came from … . His chance encounter with the fiery and beautiful daughter of Detroit’s most notorious Irish mob boss stokes flames beyond the ones that ignite between Michel and Gabbie Casey. Rivals shouldn’t mix, but these opposites have never been more attracted, either. . The lines between family loyalty, their duties, and responsibility begin to blur. . Love ruins all. . But these two aren’t the only ones playing this game, and it just became far more dangerous to get out alive. * Dirty Pool is a standalone romantic suspense. . . #CoverReveal #covergasm #goodreads #bookworm #bookstagram #bookshelf #bookobsessed #bookclub #bookish #bookaholic #mustread #amazonbooks #tbr #ComingSoon #readersofig #reader #readingchallenge #bookrecommendations #booklove #preorder #RomanticSuspense #OrganizedCrime #MafiaRomance #Standalone #MichelGabbie #Marcello #bethanykris

#onepartwoman by #perumalmurugan , translated by #aniruddhanvasudevan @penguinbooks - The beauty of this book is all in its pace. Like the sceneries of Kali’s village and his self contained life, the book builds itself up to a grand sense of #tragedy until the last minute. Dealing with the ordeals of being childless and how it impacts a couple, the love of Kali and Ponna is intense, physical, codependent and both tied to traditions and free at the same time. What I really enjoyed about this novel is the intensity of the language. At a time when I am reading a lot of non-fiction, the linguistic beauty of this book is very welcome. It reminded me of why it’s important to read works in #translation . I also loved the relationship between the protagonists- equal and equally flawed. Is it a #must read? Maybe. If reading #literature from around the world is something you enjoy, then why not! #bookblog #bookstagram #bookshelf #books #indianliterature #booksofig #booksofinsta #givemebookstoread #bookworm #givemebookstoread #bookreview #bookrecommendations #tamilliterature #booksintranslation #worldliterature #bookblog #socialrealism #indianbookstagram #india

🌳🌸❤️ • • ‘Five Feet Apart’ • I’m starting this book today, the movie is released really soon (I think it may have already been realessed in other countries already but not in mine) so I wanted to read it before it hits the big screen. The movie will star one of my all time favourite actors @colesprouse alongside the beautiful @haleyluhoo !! The book follows the lives of two young people suffering from cystic fibrosis. The two fall in love but have to stay a total of six feet apart. However, this proves to be to hard for the two souls. And so they try Five Feet, desperate to make it work. • • I can’t wait to finish this book. I’m a few chapters in and already loving it!! • • Has anyone read this one/seen the movie?? What did you think (no spoiler though please😊) • • #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #book #books #booklover #booklovers #bookobsessed #bookobsession #bookworm #read #reads #reader #reading #love #life #live #movies #film #bookshelf #bookquotes #bookreviews #bookrecommendations #bookreview #oneminutelater #bookclub #fivefeetapart #fivefeetapartmovie #fivefeetapartbook #colesprouse #haleylurichardson
I’m of the sentiment that you can’t have too many good books. Now let’s be honest, not every book is good. I’m gonna recommend all my favorites and hope you think they are as good as I do! #bookrecommendations
You have to pay for your sins. Your fee is high, it will be very difficult to pay off. But it's worth a try. And as soon as we get there at dawn, when the sun rises and awakens all life, your days will end. With your sinful, dirty blood, you will wash the place where you pray; perhaps you will find peace. You see, I'm still not such a monster, I worry about your soul. In the meantime, it's time to sleep. Tomorrow is going to be a painful day." The needle pierced where there were stitches, and he realized that the worst was yet to come... . . Should person pay for his sins? Your thoughts.. . .

The smell of tea, coffee, sweets, simit (also known as Turkish bagel), buns, cinnamon, and different spices were everywhere. Ortakoy had conquered her heart forever. She felt like a little girl in a fairytale, wandering around narrow, ancient streets where cozy, doll-like cafes were located, and kind sellers of souvenirs and hand-made stuff goods were greeting and smiling at her, even though if she was just meeting them for the first time in her life. Everything was surrounded with the scent of flowers, trees, sea, hookah, and spices. . . New #psychologicalthriller #detective book "Istanbul crimson nights" ready for purchase.
