I'm such a slow reader, even more so right now. I commend those of you who can read 5 or more books a month, I can barely manage to read 3 max per month. I mean, there's work, home, family, friends (which I barely see as it is), shows and movies to watch, bookstagram to catch up on and post, etc..etc. How do you guys do it? I'm still with A Reaper At The Gates, which I've been reading for about 2 weeks now. I like the book, but like this weekend, I've probably managed to read a whopping 5 pages (horrible). I hope to do better this week and actually finish this book. #mybookfeatures #bookphotography #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #featuringbookstagram #bookishfeatures #becauseofreading #fortheloveofreading #fortheloveofbooks #ilovereading #ilovebooks #igbooks #igreads #instabook #instabooks #instaread #instareads #booklove #bookslove #bookish #bookaholic #booknerd #bookjunkie #bookworm #bookhoarder #bookfeaturepage
You know that feeling of being back in a fictional world that you know and love? When it feels like home? 🌹 That’s how I felt reading Dance of Thieves by @maryepearson ! I’m such a huge fan of the Remnant Chronicles trilogy and I was so excited to get back to the world. 🌹 Mary definitely didn’t disappoint! It was amazing to meet some new characters anddd to see some old familiar faces 😍 SO much happened in the book, I couldn’t put it down. But it also felt real, ya know? 🌹 Kazi and Jase may be a new OTP 😏 🌹 Currently reading // #auginbooks18 🌹 #remnantchronicles #venda #otp #danceofthieves #currentlyreading #bookreview #fantasyseries #fortheloveofbooks

Have you ever read a book that you were feeling sort of "meh" about but then the ending totally changed your mind? I kind of felt that way about The Cruel Prince. It still wasn't my favorite book ever, which I know is a totally an #unpopularopinion but the the ending definitely bumped it up a star. Would you rather read a book that's meh all the way through with a completely shocking ending or a book that is just good all the way though but no surprises? I think I'd take the surprise ending. I love when books surprise me.
Nothing quite so witchy as books on witchcraft. I do have a number of books about witches as well, but thought this collection better suited. . . . #bookstagramtogetheraugust Day 19 - Witchy reads —————— #bibliophile #bookstagram #peopleofbookstagram #bookish #booklover #booksofinstagram #fortheloveofbooks #bookaholic #ilovebooks #bookworm #bookshelf #igreaders #witchyreads #witches #witchcraft
It was actually a really hard decision to choose between fantasy or scifi! I love them both so much! 💕 • But overall, I do think i enjoy fantasy just a tad more. A Court of Mist and Fury is probably my favourite fantasy book. I would literally be buried with this book if I could 😂 • What do you prefer between fantasy and scifi? 😊 • Day 20 >> Sci Fi or Fantasy? >> #bookishaugust18 ♡ • • • • • • #book #love #bookworm #fortheloveofbooks #reading #currentlyreading #bookstagram #bibliophile #booklover #bookaddict #booknerd #instaread #instabook #buddyreads #bookish #bookclub #instagood #instalove #instalike #instafollow #potd #photooftheday #picoftheday #bookphotography #qotd #acotar #acomaf #fantasy

“That was one of the saddest things about people--their most important thoughts and feelings often went unspoken and barely understood.” ― Alexandra Adornetto, Halo • • This book has made me frustrated on many levels. First of all I ordered the last 2 books and only received the last one because the second one was sold out for some reason. So I read it in the library and never reordered the second book. Second for some reason all the pictures I took with this book sucked. It is like it is cursed. But I finally was able to take some good pictures. And then I make it my 100th picture. Wow I can’t believe I have that many already. Thanks everyone for the support so far. • • Qotd: Which book frustrated you the most (because of any reason)? • • I was tagged by @a_nerd_and_beyond to do the #booknerdqanta #booktag : thanks!! 🦄Favourite genre: Fantasy 🦄Favourite summer read: the mime order (Samantha Shannon) 🦄Favourite setting: hmmm as long as it is a mythical kingdom I love it 🦄Most relatable character:Tessa Grey from TID 🦄Bad boy or Funny: Funny 🦄Must read: Christina Henry her Alice series • • #halo #alexandraadornetto #adornetto #bookfrustrations #100thpost # bookstagram #bookworm #bookdragon #bookporn #bookfanatic #bookblogger #bestbookishpic #bookfeaturepage #bookstafeatures #bibliophile #bookaholic #fortheloveofbooks #creativebookphotography #booknerds #bookstagrameu #booknerdigans #readingaddict #yalovin #booksmyfriends #betweenthebookspages

There will be spoilers, so if you’ve not yet read and intend to, you probably want to nope out of my review. . I’m an unapologetic fan of Jen’s books. I’ll read pretty much anything she writes, even if it’s a genre that doesn’t typically interest me. I’ve not read a lot of PNR, nor do I plan to if I’m being honest, but I was intrigued by this series when it was first announced. So, I wasted no time reading the first book and loving it. I didn’t keep up with the series as it released, but I did read all the books. It was a great story with great characters and I loved the little world Jen created in New Orleans. . Obviously I was excited to see it was going to continue and I was thrilled to get my hands on The Prince early. I jumped into it just as soon as I finished reading Brave (a little late! whoops!) and I really liked Brighton right from the start. She was sassy and more than a little badass. I loved her banter with Tink because, well, I freaking love Tink. He’s one of my favorite things about this series as a whole and about this book specifically. I was intrigued by Caden and what was happening with him and Bri. They had chemistry for days, but I feel like it was never fully explored. Which, when you’re all about the ship and you read for romance, is a bit disappointing. .

I’m just gonna go ugly cry in a corner, because this book shattered my little heart 💔😭 Omg this is without a doubt my ultimate fave series - the action, the settings, the characters etc, are just incredibly well written... I love Kaz Brekker with like every inch of my soul; he’s just a damaged boy with PTSD, doing whatever it takes to succeed in life and keep the world at a distance, and the way he sorted shit out in this book was even better than the 1st! I would love to have his brain I swear... I loved x 70000 the ending for Wylan, and Jasper, and Inej had me in tears, along with Kaz who once again just sorted shit out... the plot twists were devastating and incredible at the same time, and I honestly don’t actually know what it is I’m going to read next, because how can I concentrate on anything else when all I want is more on these characters???? Time to go to fan fiction I say!!! 😂 5/5 stars! More if it were possible!!!! ⭐️📚🐉❤️ #book #reader #reading #readers #author #readersofinstagram #bookdragon #bookworm   #lovereading #booklove #idratherbereading   #bookstagram #bookshelf #booklover #fortheloveofbooks #bibliophile #sixofcrows #crookedkingdom #leighbardugo #kazbrekker #inejghafa #jesperfahey #wylanvaneck #ninazenik #matthiashelvar #booktwo

I’ve previously read and loved Abby Geni’s short story collection, The Last Animal and her debut novel, The Lightkeepers. So I was very excited to get to this and I’m glad to report that it was worth a read. The Wildlands, to me, felt like a slight deviant from her usual style. While the inherent theme of environment and relationship to the natural world remain the focus, her stories, usually more personal, literary and character driven, in this however, was much more plot focussed, in the style of a page turner, and more simply written. I’m not sure if that was a conscious choice by the author to better fit into the ‘thriller’ genre but to me, that was a slight let-down. In the Wildlands, she also dialled up the human impact to environment, presenting a social cause and making it personal. ~ The plotline follows the life of 4 siblings, orphaned after a category 5 tornado devastates and destroys their home, taking away the life of their father, having already lost their mother. Darlene the eldest, quickly rises to look after her younger siblings and foregoes her aspirations to attend University, instead taking a job and being the sole breadwinner of the family. A massive fight between the Tucker, the second eldest sibling and Darlene, spirals out of control and Tucker leaves his sisters for good. Most of the story is narrated from the youngest, 9 year old Cora’s perspective. Cora has a very special bond with her brother, and his reappearance under unusual circumstances convinces Cora to tag along with Tucker on a mission that she doesn’t really understand. The consequence of Tucker’s actions, to which Cora becomes an unintentional accomplice, and Darlene’s efforts to retrace Cora’s whereabouts and rescue her, is the central crux of the story. ~ Geni shines in the description of the natural world and the plot was certainly engaging, but ultimately for me, it didn’t create the magic that The Lightkeepers did. Geni, in this explores the idea of how extreme faith in a cause, however noble, can tip over and become toxic, fanatic, with one losing one’s sense of reason. Review continues in comment. ->
✨ BOOK REVIEW✨ The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry ~ Gabrielle Zevin ⭐️⭐️⭐️ • “ It is the secret fear that we are unlovable that isolates us, but it is only because we are isolated that we think we are unlovable. [...] Someday, you do not know when, he, or indeed she, will be there. You will be loved because for the first time in your life you will truly not be alone. You will have chosen not to be alone...” • The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry tells of the life and loves of A.J. Fikry, a book obsessed, independent bookshop owner who is inclined towards book snobbery and thinks he knows what’s worth reading. That is until a baby is abandoned in his store, he becomes a father overnight and over the years that follow he and his bookshop, gradually move from being a mere presence in the town to an essential part of it. • It is the kind of novel that’s easy to read, might tug on your heart strings at times, isn’t lacking in bookish humour and book references and features a protagonist who possesses a number quirks any book obsessed person would recognise. It is not a standout for me but I also believe that a book doesn’t have to be to have been worth reading. ✨
Nothing better than a seat-gripping thriller with an oh so satisfying ending on a long road trip. This book did NOT disappoint. Seriously, flashback to 1999 and it’s like the female version of #thetalentedmrripley . . Halfway on our trip and I’m already finished with book ☝🏻.

📖 💐 You all know it’s happening so I may as well make it official. In September, the #oneweekofmisery readalong is taking place! How to get involved, pick up a copy of #Misery by Stephen King, choose a week in September, and read Misery over the course of that week, simple! —— For those of you who love a discussion, I’m hosting a DM chat for all things Misery, the discussion will start Sun 23rd Sept, so you’ll want to finish the book before then to avoid spoilers. I say “start” because it isn’t official with a start time or anything, just leave your thoughts whenever you’ve finished the book, on or after 23rd Sept! —— If you’re joining in, use the hashtag #oneweekofmisery so we can find all your posts. And if you want to join the DM discussion (not mandatory), let me know. I’ll keep adding people till it’s full. -ps. there’s already 9 people in the chat 😊 —— I’m having a wonderful time with these King readalongs, so far Under The Dome, It, Needful Things, 22/11/63, and The Stand (currently in progress) have been ticked off, and there’s plenty more to come as I continue my journey through King’s work! 😃
“I was just thinking about what it would be like.” “How what would be like?” I had asked. “If you and I had ended up together.” . . I don’t even know where to begin. I don’t think I’ve stopped crying since I hit about 40% of this book. I couldn’t put it down. I couldn’t stop turning the pages and feeling everything. This book has certainly put my heart and soul through the wringer and I’m emotionally spent. Hell, tears are still streaming down my swollen and puffy eyes even as I’m writing this. Blind Kiss is definitely one of the BEST and a TOP READ of 2018! It just deserves all the damn stars in the galaxy. Whenever I’m reading a book by Renée Carlino, I make sure that I brace myself for the massive onslaught of feels and that I’m prepared to drown in tears—not only for when I’m immersed in the story, but even for days and weeks after. Because that’s how potent her words are and the impact they have on you. The story will just stay with you for a long time, and hit you right where it hurts and matters the most. And this is exactly what I’m going through right now, fresh off of turning the last page of Penny and Gavin’s book. Gut-wrenchingly beautiful and emotionally poignant, Blind Kiss is undoubtedly an unforgettable tale of not just love, loss and longing, but also of life-changing moments and an extraordinary kind of friendship that lasts beyond a lifetime. It will break down your walls, shake you to the core, and leave your heart beating anew. If you have to choose one book to read this year, let it be this one. { ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ } Read my full review here: https://bit.ly/2L53xsA BLIND KISS by Renée Carlino . . #BlindKiss #ReneeCarlino #MustRead #TopReadOf2018 #AtriaBooks #BookwormBoxLove #RentasticReads #RentasticReviews #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booklife #addictedtobooks #bookfeatures #bookgasm #bookrecs #bookporn #bookblogger #bookworm #bibliophile #booknerdigans #booksofinstagram #fortheloveofbooks #romancereader #romancereads #ireadromance #socksunday

Finished reading this one yesterday, and OMG. It’s so creepy, and a quick read. If you like dark I highly suggest SOUR CANDY by @kealanpatrick - for real. See description below ❤️ . . . glance, Phil Pendleton and his son Adam are just an ordinary father and son, no different from any other. They take walks in the park together, visit county fairs, museums, and zoos, and eat overlooking the lake. Some might say the father is a little too accommodating given the lack of discipline when the child loses his temper in public. Some might say he spoils his son by allowing him to set his own bedtimes and eat candy whenever he wants. Some might say that such leniency is starting to take its toll on the father, given how his health has declined. What no one knows is that Phil is a prisoner, and that up until a few weeks ago and a chance encounter at a grocery store, he had never seen the child before in his life. . . . . #kealanpatrickburke #sourcandy #winebroidery #embroidery #embroideryart #embroideryartist #mariaannreads #bookaholic #bookstagram #unitedbookstagram #bookwormsunite #coverlove #fortheloveofbooks #goodreads @goodreads #riotgrams @bookriot #greatreads #mustread #booknerd #bookriot #lovetoread #bookworm #amreading #authorslife #readerslife #author #authorartist #writerscommunity #neverstopreading #alwaysreading
“It’s dope to be Black until it’s hard to be Black.” -Angie Thomas 🔻 🔻 Sunday Read 🔻 🔻 What’s your Sunday read?
Now reading: "From bacteria to Bach and back" by Daniel C. Dennett ◾ I'm a little out of practice when it comes to philosophy and heavy theoretical discussions so this book took some time to get through and just as soon as I finished it I knew I had to read it again in the future. I've been following Dennett's work on consciousness since 1993 and it's fascinating but hard work. For instance: "The more effective words, the mutualist memes that become the indispensable toolkit or vocabulary of every person, acquire their semantics, their syntax, and their connotations by a gradual, quasi-Darwinian coevolutionary process of bottom-up learning, exploiting the brain's pattern-detecting prowess and taking advantage of the brain's predesigned set of affordance detectors". That's right, you heard me!! ◾ This certainly isn't for everyone and it requires some serious thinking but if one is looking for a book to tickle the imagination one could do a lot worse than this book. #nowreading #fortheloveofbooks #printedmatter #paperback #danielcdennett #frombacteriatobachandback
Currently in a contemplative state of mind as I'm in the last couple chapters of this amazing story. Can't put it down & you should definitely pick it up. // #thedeathofmrswestaway
I read TATBILB last year for @bookstagram.bd Ramadan Challenge. I have sort of grown out of young adult books but I still enjoyed it a lot and I do plan to read the other two books. I finally have a 5 day long vacation which means lots of reading, watching movies and taking bookish photos. So I'm going to kick start this vacation by watching TATBILB I guess it will be good to recap before reading P. S.

Happy Sunday! Today's prompt for #Ampersand2018 is struggle and it couldn't have come on a better day 😝 Joel and I stayed up entirely too late last night playing video games so now we both slept in this morning and are exhausted 😴 The struggle is real.. . Anyways, here's a series that has been on my list for actual YEARS but I have never gotten around to reading them! Like ToG, it's such a big commitment and I've heard so many mixed emotions about them so I'm hesitant! It must be done eventually though especially since we already have the whole boxed set 🤷🏼‍♀️ . What books have you struggled to get through or start? . ✨ Struggle - #Ampersand2018

B O O K S 📚 I’ve identified a few areas in my life where I’m NO modernist. I still love books y’all. I love book stores. I even love the smell that is distinctly Barnes & Noble. And I hope to convert my home office into a “library” one day when my kiddos are grown. You know, the kind with chunky nail studded leather furniture, loads of detailed woodwork, and built-ins with a ladder to reach gorgeous jewel-toned & expertly bound books. But of all the libraries I have ever seen, this library is THE library of ALL libraries. This is the Long Room at Trinity College, Dublin. Isn’t it spectacular? I assure you, my pictures offer no justice here.

“Bring me the winter king, and I will make you a summer queen.” ― Naomi Novik, Spinning Silver • It's been more than a year since I read Uprooted and it still remains to be one of my favorite books of all time. To be honest, I was a little worried that nothing could be better than Uprooted but Novik proved me wrong with this masterpiece. One of the things that I loved about Spinning Silver was how well the three female protagonists were written. They're all fiercely independent and are happy to think for themselves and make their own destiny. They're brave but also vulnerable, smart but also afraid. And despite these similar traits, each of them had their own distinct voice. I also loved the atmospheric style and the setting of the book, of a pastoral winter. Spinning Silver is an enchanting mix of local folklore, fairytales and wonderful narrative. It's an intricate story narrated by different people who all play a part in the larger picture. Naomi Novik's writing is something special, the way she weaves her stories is magical and captivating. She really knows how to write a compelling story. All in all, I was utterly enchanted from start to finish and I highly recommend this book, especially if you enjoy fairytale retelling and are looking for something different from the mainstream YA books. • • • #bookstagram #bookstagramindia #spinningsilver #naominovik #wovenwithpagesreview #booksofinstagram #bibliophile #bookphotography #bookstagramfeature #fortheloveofbooks #bookfeaturepage #instareads

💬 What are you currently reading? . I am between books at the moment after finishing Kristen Proby’s All the Way before bed last night. It was a solid, sexy read. I did start listening to the Bloodlines series again on audiobook because I’m determined to actually finish it this year, so I guess I am reading it right now. I’m not 100% in love with the narrator, but I do love Sydney and Adrian. I’m about three hours from finishing the first book on audio, so I hope I can find enough listening time this weekend to be done with that and move onto the second book. It’s always been one of my favorite series and I’m disappointed in myself for not finishing it sooner. So I’m putting all other audios on hold for now and seeing how far I can get in this series during my little binge. . I know the idea of OTP (one true pairing) is that you have, you know… one. But for a romance reader — and total ‘shipper like me — that’s just plain unfeasible. I have hundreds. The aforementioned Sydney and Adrian are one of them. Several of the others are featured in this stack — Cam and Avery, Jake and Chelsea, Finn and Harlow… 😍 I could go on and on and on. . . #bookishlemon • bookish merch #readgushaug18 • ❤️ #bookqueensaug18 • most photogenic books: #WorldPhotographyDay #iamsweetauthoraugust • indie author #bgaugust2018 • book collecting dust #auginbooks18 • currently reading #tagswithevilqueenreads#currentlyreading #fearyournovelaugust • architecture on the cover #bookstagramreadsaugust • love that bookish merch #beyondthepagesaug • share your favorite OTP #signedbooksundays • say happy anniversary to signed book Sundays with any book . . . #igreads #bookaholic #bookishfeature #bookstagram #fortheloveofbooks #instabooks #shereads #bookstagrammer #readinglife #readromance #readingissexy #redbooks #bookstack #coverlove #signedbooks
Yesterday was Percy's birthday and we celebrated by having blue candy at home. Unfortunately, there was none left by the time I got around to clicking this pic 🤷 Qotd: What's the one thing you would enjoy doing if you lost all your memories? . . Aotd: I would read all the books on my shelf and relive the experience of reading them for the first time ❤️ . . #bookstagram #booksniffer #bookstagramindia #bookaddict #bookblogging #prettybooks #fortheloveofbooks #bookish #bookishlove #percyjackson #creativebookphotography #booknerdigans #indianbookstagrammer #unitedbookstagram #bookworm #rickriordan #readingislife #booktography #bookaholic #bookflatlay #bookishgirl #bookgasm #bookishfeatures #booknerds #epicreads #thesonofneptune #seaweedbrain #bluebooks #booksbooksbooks

✂️The Paper Dolls by Julia Donaldson & @rebecca_a_cobb ✨This feels like a bold statement but I'm going with it.. This is my favourite Julia Donaldson book! There, I said it. Your turn!! #juliadonaldson #thepaperdolls
Unboxing books - yay! 😃📚 Conan and ASoIaF. ❤️⚔️❤️ Now that we finally have three new bookshelves, my wife and I each got some of our book boxes out of the garage. @tammiicaught has eight boxes of cooking books to go through! (I don’t think we have enough bookshelves for them all.) 😂 I got four boxes of sci-fi and fantasy, and this was the first box I opened: Conan and related works by the great Robert E. Howard, L. Sprague de Camp, Lin Carter and Robert Jordan, among other authors; and George R. R. Martin’s epic A Song of Ice and Fire books. 😍 As you can see, the unboxing was ably assisted by our cat, Oscar. 😹 Oh, and I dropped and smashed my phone in the garage today. Eeek! 😱😭🤦‍♂️ But overall, it’s been a good day and a great (not much work) weekend. Hope your weekend has been going well. #conan #conanthebarbarian #robertehoward #robertjordan #georgerrmartin #grrm #asoiaf #gameofthrones #agameofthrones #afeastforcrows #adancewithdragons #fantasy #book #books #fortheloveofbooks #unboxing #shelfie #cat #cats #catsofinstagram #booklovingcatsofinstagram 😻
📚Dear Ijeawele Or A Feminist Manifesto In Fifteen Suggestions📚 📚We Should All Be Feminists📚 .
