I made these pizza rolls and took this photo about 2 weeks ago. For someone who is a beginner when it comes to bread making, I think I did a really good job, everybody loved them. I used the recipe from Bigger Bolder Baking. Even though Laura Jean only makes sweet stuff (which is my preference ), I wanted to include a book or book series where the main character bakes and this was the series that immediately came to mind. I just started reading book 3. - - #reading #readbooks #bookreader #booklover #booklove #ilovebooks #ToAlltheBoysIveLovedBefore #PSIStillLoveYou #AlwaysandForeverLaraJean #JennyHan #pizzarolls #baking #fangirl #fandom #bibliophile #bookish #mybookishfeatures #libraryofbookstagram #readersofinstagram #igreads #bookstagramfeatures #candles #bookishcandles #bookishcanadians #culturetripbooks #bookstagram #instabook #BookNerd #NerdGirl

So, this is my first @authormrobinson book! The only other mafia books I’ve read are @rachvd ‘s Eagle Elite and Mafia Royals series, which I absolutely adore. And when I saw these two were doing a co-write mafia book, I just had to read Monica’s books too, to prepare for Mafia Casanova. Wish me luck! 😳 😏 😂 🔪 🔫 😈 📚 📖 📚 #bookworm #booknerd #welovebooks #welovereading #bookstagram #booklovers #bookblogger #bookish #bookstagrammer #bookrecs #readinglist #readingtime #readersofinstagram #bookthings #reading #amreading #bookblog #fortheloveofreading #bibliophile #igreads #bookphotography #bloggersofinstagram #romancereadersofinstagram #booksbooksbooks #mafiaromance #currentlyreading #mrobinson #rachelvandyken #eldiablo

I call this one... I tried. Eye shadow does not work as well as eyeliner for things like this, but I couldn’t find my cosplay eyeliner (for if I have to add dark markings ) so it’s what I had to use lol. #bookstagram #booktography #bookaholic #youngadultliterature #booknerd #bookfeature #bookphotography

Out tomorrow!! Whew! I wasn’t at all sure what to expect from this one & I definitely did enjoy it! It reads like a horror movie - it’s quite visual and the nods to explaining what’s really going on are introduced in a multimedia fashion. And while it’s an ending that my Paba would approve of, I will admit that it’s a bit too bleak for me to really love! Still, it’s certainly exciting to see these teens take on an evil corporation & try to save the world!

I’ve always been a big advocate of the fact that technology and marketing could take you far, just far enough though. If I look at myself, most of my purchases, while might not be the best of the best, but is something that makes me feel good in my gut. Even though I compare my products thoroughly, I do prefer the product that seduces me. So Off course, it was so pleasurable to read the science behind it all. #bookstagrammer #booknerd #booksbooksbooks #bookcommunity #bookworm #reading #business #businessintelligence

Anxious People review! This is a story about a lot of things. It’s a story about a bank robber, and a hostage drama, and a group of strangers, and two police officers. However, this story is so much more. Fredrik Backman takes his readers on a journey of life, connections, pain, and happiness. He gives the reader a chance to truly think about things and what’s important in life. He shows how we can all be connected in some way and how important your actions can be whether you realize it or not. This is more than just a book. It’s a lesson. It’s a lesson in love, friendship, and just being a decent person. It’s suspenseful and romantic, but it’s more than just that. It’s important. This story is important for everyone to read and truly understand. #bookstagram #booklover #book #bookworm #reading #bookstagrammer #bookish #booknerd #bookaddict #bibliophile #instabook #booksofinstagram #bookaholic #read #readersofinstagram #booklove #bookshelf #instabooks #bookblogger #igreads #bookcommunity #booklovers #bookreview #reader #bhfyp #bookoffhemonth #anxiouspeople #fredrikbackman #atriabooks

Title: The Lion's Den Author: Katherine St. John Genre: Thriller Published by: Grand Central Publishing Publication Date: June 30, 2020 Dates Read: May 21-23, 2020 Number of Pages: 368 My Rating: 4.5/5 My Review: The only known predators of lions...are humans. Look no further! You've found the perfect 2020 poolside read! (No COVID-19 or murder hornets to be found here, fellow readers! ) 4.5 brutal stars I was so in the mood for a backbiting, cat-and-mouse game in an exotic locale...and that's exactly what I got with The Lion's Den. Set primarily on a yacht in the Mediterranean sea, there were an untold number of less than desirable personalities in this story, but there was so much more than meets the eye with our protagonist, Belle. Summer, one of the many antagonists, was the character you'll absolutely love to hate. She was vile. Narrated entirely by Belle, the story goes from the present, while she's on the yacht, to several years in the past, where we learn more about her relationship with Summer. The pacing was brilliantly done, and the book was nearly impossible to put down. I was, when it was all said and done, extraordinarily pleased with this novel, particularly the fact that there was a small twist or two I didn't see coming, and I look forward to reading more of Katherine St. John's work. Trust me, friends, you need this book in your life this summer. I recommend this juicy, indulgent read to one and all! #books #bookstagram #reading #booklover #bookworm #bookish #bibliophile #bookstagrammer #instabook #booknerd #bookaddict #booksofinstagram #bookaholic #instabooks #booklove #igreads #bookphotography #bookstabuddies #booklovers #bookreviewer #readersofinstagram #bookclub #fiction #bookcommunity #writersofinstagram #bookobsessed #authorsofinstagram #ilovebooks #goodreads

Day 28 After the storm: Bookish rainbow I loved that these covers all manged to make a rainbow. I am definitely in love with these covers. I love that every book comes in a slipcase as it makes them seem even more special. I also love the Hogwarts castle they use on the cases. It looks absolutely gorgeous and the way it’s done is definitely very magical. QOTD: What is your favourite colour? AOTD: I think my favourite colour would be teal. I love it and think it’s a really gorgeous colour. #bookbookowlseasonalseptember

Happy Tuesday 💗 I’m at work, 10am here when I posted this, and I just wanna popping up a bit here for @illumicrate August 2020 “Identity Crisis” third day photo challenge 😁 • • #QOTD : When you read about a character who made a mistake or done a crime which obviously made you feel very annoyed/angry, will you give them a second chance? . AIDAN from Illuminae Files inspired me for this question and.. depends on how they’ll grow, think, and act after that event. If they show sincerity to improve as a better person, I’ll give them a second chance! Always interesting to see characters like that grow to be better 😎 • • • I’m featuring I Am Not pin hop by @felfiramoondesigns inspired by AIDAN itself! I love the color combinations, so cute 💗 • • I’ll go back to work. Stay safe and take care! #illumicrate #illumicrateaug2020 #illumicrateidentitycrisis #AIDAN #illuminaefiles #jaykristoff #amiekaufman #bookish #bookstagram #booklover #bookdragon #bibliophile #fantasy #scifi #bookaesthetic #booknerd #bookaholic #bookphotography #dudettestagram #bookstagramindonesia

Title: If It Bleeds Author: Stephen King Genre: Horror Published by: Scribner Publication Date: April 21, 2020 Dates Read: May 13-20, 2020 Number of Pages: 447 My Rating: 4/5 My Review: The master of the supernatural is back and better than ever! I've always loved Stephen King's novellas. To create these crazy little worlds so successfully in so few words....what can I say? The man is, and always will be, a creative genius. Onward... Mr. Harrigan's Phone: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My favorite of the four stories, the entire time I was reading I kept thinking to myself, "How in the world does he come up with this creepy shit?" (He actually discusses it in the 'Author's Notes at the end of the book, but I didn't know that at the time. ) I was legit jealous I hadn't thought of it myself. It's endearingly clever. Unlike some of King's more recent works, which left the character's ages vague and unclear to me, in Mr. Harrigan's Phone, he absolutely nailed the millennial voice. The Life of Chuck: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ I adore apocalyptic stories, and the first section of this novella was ah-MAZ-ing...definitely a world I had no interest being a part of, but one which was so engrossing, I couldn't tear my eyes from my Kindle. Unfortunately, as it's told in reverse, the beginning of the story was stronger than the middle and concluding sections. In fact, and perhaps it's just me, it didn't really make sense. The key plot points were there, but due to an unanswered question or two, the three sections didn't tie together in a way that gave me the satisfying conclusion I was hoping for.

As sad as I am about the fact this pretty much every single pin of this design is flawed and thus I’ll have to sell as seconds. Can we just appreciate how gorgeous it turned out? 😍 I’m still sorting out some issues with my manu and don’t have a release date just yet. But I have decided that due to the sheer amount of issues this batch of designs have, I won’t be doing a newsletter first 48 hours only release this time. The pins will be on my main shop for the first 2 days instead (open to everyone ) before I add any to ETSY. I’m also deciding if I’ll offer any of the designs y’all voted on just recently for preorder. Also, how gorgeous is this little fake cotton I found at @spotlightstores this morning? It’s perfect for neutral photos. . . . #enamelpin #bookish #cutepins #pin #pinspinspins #bookstagram #kawaii #bookishpins #pingame #pingamestrong #bibliophile #pins #pinaddict #pincommunity #pinlove #etsy #etsyshop #etsysellersofinstagram #etsyfinds #pindesign #book #pinstagram #booksbooksbooks #pinoftheday #shopifystore #somanybookssolittletime #booklover #booknerd

With Midnight Sun out, I thought a review of this YA classic was needed! Bella moves to Forks Washington, the rainiest place in the US from sunny Arizona. Not only is she adjusting to the weather but to a high school with some highly unusual classmates. One of them is the particularly handsome is Edward Cullen. After a rocky start as science partners, Bella leans more about Edward and what exactly makes him and his family different. Edward makes the choice brings Bella into his world and how he navigates the bloody world of vampires and protects his coven from being found out. This series is a oldie but a goodie and I look forward in reading Edward’s version of Twilight! #twilight #twilightbooks #stephaniemeyer #stephaniemeyerbooks #edwardcullen #bellaswan #midnightsun #bookstagram #booklover #book #bookish #bookstagramclub 📚 #ya #yabooks #yabookstagram #reading #read #readersofinstagram #readmorebooks #yasuspense #bibliophile #bookaholic #booksbooksbooks #bookaholics #bookaddict #booknerd #bookaholicgirl

I absolutely adored this book. @jennabhager @readwithjenna is a phenomenal storyteller. I cried so many tears as I read some of the beautiful love stories of her family. I didn’t want it to end and often read only a chapter or two per night. Certain stories and letters reminded me so much of my own grandmother’s and mother’s sacrificial love for our family. I’ve often said that I would love to write a book about my own grandparents’ romance, hardships, and happiness. Jenna has created the perfect guide and blueprint with this book. What a wonderful reminder that we are all much more alike than different! Read with a box of tissues and hug your loved ones even tighter afterwards. Obviously a 5⭐️book!

La vie dans les petites villes américaines où rien ne vient rompre la confortable monotonie de la société matérialiste a beau ne pas être stimulante, Arthur Alderman s'en accommode, avec l'enthousiasme de ses dix-sept ans. L'université lui ouvre ses portes et son amour pour Maggie est partagé. Pourtant, très vite, ses rêves d'avenir vont se transformer en cauchemar. Non pas parce que Maggie tombe enceinte. Ni parce qu'elle avorte, calmement, sans dramatiser. Mais parce que le père d'Arthur, Richard Alderman, a rejoint les « Chrétiens Régénérés », une secte qui applique, sous le couvert du sauvetage des âmes, la loi de fer des vertus les plus conservatrices. Pour lui, l'avortement est un crime. Dès lors, étendant son ombre terrible sur toute sa famille, Richard Alderman va déclencher le mécanisme effrayant d'une justice devenue folle. Parce qu'une vie à naître n'a pas été menée à son terme, d'autres existences vont être saccagées, dans le triomphe de l'hypocrisie et au cours de l'un des retours de bâton du destin d'une cruauté que seule Patricia Highsmith pouvait imaginer. Et l'un des acteurs les plus énigmatiques du drame est sans doute le jeune frère d'Arthur, Robbie, un meurtrier de quinze ans. Ces gens qui frappent à la porte est sans aucun doute un absolu chef-d'oeuvre. Nul mieux que l'auteur du Journal d'Edith ne pouvait restituer avec autant de talent le lent glissement du malaise vers la tragédie et dénoncer avec autant de virulence la folie de ceux qui utilisent Dieu pour manipuler les hommes. #booklovers #bookstagram #books #macasadepapier #patriciahighsmith #booklover #bookaddict #reading #bookish #booknerd #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bibliophile #instabook #booklove #bookphotography #bookaholic #read #readersofinstagram #bookshelf #instabooks #booksbooksbooks #bookblogger #igreads #bookcommunity #bookclub #reader #libri #bookreview

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️/5 An intimate look into the psyche of a girl plucked from obscurity at 13 and thrust into the spotlight. The Comeback dives into the dark aspects of Hollywood, and the often predatory men in power roles. Grace Turner was a child-actor sensation and disappears while at the peak of her career. Readers get a glimpse into her struggle of putting the pieces of her life back together after sexual abuse trauma. I do wish there was more closure or perhaps harsh consequences for her abuser but I’m glad the story focused more on the victim and her journey to healing. Have you read this book? What did you think?

Title: Her Perfect Life Author: Rebecca Taylor Genre: Domestic Fiction/Mystery Published by: Sourcebooks Landmark Publication Date: June 2, 2020 Dates Read: May 13-15, 2020 Number of Pages: 352 My Rating: 4/5 My Review: This was an unexpectedly great novel. The writing was quick and effective, the characters were very well fleshed out and felt entirely authentic, and the story was intriguing. I breezed through this book, staying up half the night to finish. There is a small twist at the end, but an easy one to see coming. Thankfully, figuring things out didn't dampen my enthusiasm for the story in the least. The characters brought this story to life in a way that made twists unnecessary. What did dampen my enthusiasm was the death of a pet dog near the end of the novel. Although it was an accident and there were no nefarious intentions, it still broke my heart...while also ticking me off. It was so unnecessary. When are authors going to learn that dying pets are never good for their ratings? Overall, though, this is a gorgeous story covering themes of suicide, infidelity, dementia, and a mother's desire to protect her children...despite their not-so-great choices. Triggers: Suicide, infidelity, the death of a pet **Many thanks to the publisher for my review copy. #books #bookstagram #reading #booklover #bookworm #bookish #bibliophile #bookstagrammer #instabook #booknerd #bookaddict #booksofinstagram #bookaholic #instabooks #booklove #igreads #bookphotography #bookstabuddies #booklovers #bookreviewer #readersofinstagram #bookclub #fiction #bookcommunity #writersofinstagram #bookobsessed #authorsofinstagram #ilovebooks #goodreads

Book Title: The Hungry Tide Author: Amitav Ghosh Price: 640 plus delivery charge Book Description: From the author of the Glass Palace, the widely-acclaimed bestseller. The Hungry Tide is a rich, exotic saga set in Calcutta and in the vast archipelago of islands in the Bay of Bengal. An Indian myth says that when the river Ganges first descended from the heavens, the force of the cascade was so great that the earth would have been destroyed if it had not been for the god Shiva, who tamed the torrent by catching it in his dreadlocks. The result is the Sundarbans, an immense stretch of mangrove forest, a half-drowned land where the waters of the Himalayas merge with the incoming tides of the sea. It is this vast archipelago of islands that provides the setting for Amitav Ghosh’s new novel. In the Sundarbans the tides reach more than 100 miles inland and every day thousands of hectares of forest disappear only to re-emerge hours later. Dense as the mangrove forests are, from a human point of view it is only a little less barren than a desert. There is a terrible, vengeful beauty here, a place teeming with crocodiles, snakes, sharks and man-eating tigers. This is the only place on earth where man is more often prey than predator. And it is into this terrain that an eccentric, wealthy Scotsman named Daniel Hamilton tried to create a utopian society, of all races and religions and conquer the might of the Sundarbans. In January 2001, a small ship arrives to conduct an ecological survey of this vast but little-known environment and the scientists on board begin to trace the journeys of the descendants of this society....... #laibarydeals #laibarynp #laibary #nepalreads #bookstagram #bookstagramnepal #bookworm #bookdragons #booknerd #readabook #readingisfun #onlinebookstore #bookoholic #nepalionlineshopping #harpercollins #indianwriting #classicfiction #amitavghosh #thehungrytide #fantasy #9788172236137

When I sat down to make a list of books to read for 2020, I had no idea that Yemen would be one of the most difficult. That said, I'm really happy with what I've been able to find. So far I've read The Hostage, A Land Without Jasmine, and From the Land of Sheba. I'm hoping to get to the others next year, but I'm always on the lookout for more! Hopefully more Yemeni authors will be translated into English in the future. #yemen #yemeniliterature #yemeniauthors #middleeast #middleeasthistory #middleeastbooks #middleeastliterature #folktales #jasmine #carolynhan #wajdialahdal #hurma #freyastark #thesoutherngatesofarabia #zaydmuteedammaj #alialmuqri #wherethepavedroadends #bookstagram #bookish #booklist #alandwithoutjasmine #bookgram #bookgoals #readingintranslation #translatedliterature #arabliterature #arabicliterature #bookcollector #booknerd #readinglist

♡𝐒𝐔𝐍𝐃𝐀𝐘♡ Since we don't have plans for today, right up to now, we're thinking of going on a road trip. The sun’s out, so we want to do something worth it. Probably read somewhere, just anywhere out of my usual spot. • QOTD: What’s your favorite weather or season to do a little reading? Mine would be sunny weather with a cool breeze by the beach. I'd love Autumn, but we only got two seasons here, and the last autumn I had is in Germany, but there's no way we could travel far these days. • On the other side of the note, I'm waiting for my bookmail. I'm getting antsy just waiting. Who's not, right? Better to go out just to take my mind out of it. • Hoping everyone is safe. Have a nice Sunday! 🧡🧡🧡

••BOOK REVIEW••⁣ ⁣ 💀💀/5⁣ ⁣ I have an unpopular opinion about 𝗕𝗘𝗛𝗜𝗡𝗗 𝗛𝗘𝗥 𝗘𝗬𝗘𝗦 because I didn’t love it.⁣ ⁣ 𝗦𝗬𝗡𝗢𝗣𝗦𝗜𝗦: “Louise is a single working mom stuck in a modern-day rut when she meets a man in a bar and sparks fly. She’s thrilled she finally connected with someone. When Louise arrives at work on Monday, she meets her new boss, David. The man from the bar. The very married man from the bar who can’t keep his eyes off Louise. And then Louise bumps into Adele, who’s new to town and in need of a friend. And is married to David. Behind Her Eyes is like no other book you’ve read before. Why is David controlling? Why is Adele scared of him? Louise knows this marriage is wrong. But she can’t guess how wrong―and how far a person might go to protect their marriage’s secrets.”⁣ ⁣ 𝗥𝗔𝗧𝗜𝗡𝗚: I read this as a buddy read with @kasandbooks , @litwithmami , and @thealc0ve and it took us a while to finish. The beginning / middle were really slow and gave me 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗦𝗜𝗟𝗘𝗡𝗧 𝗪𝗜𝗙𝗘 (by A. S. A. Harrison ) vibes, which I gave a 1-skull rating. I did, however, enjoy Louise’s character because she was entertaining and poked fun at herself, and she seemed like a devoted mom.⁣ ⁣ There was a lot of repetitiveness throughout the book, which had me like, “Ok, I get it; let’s move on, please.” Plus, to label this as a psychological thriller…I think that’s a stretch. Maybe in the beginning and middle, but the end definitely was more fantasy or paranormal, and I wasn’t a fan. Perhaps if that was how it was from the get-go, I’d feel differently, but it wasn’t. It felt like it was thrown in at the end to give it a huge twist, which it was because there’s no way in hell I would have ever guessed that’s how it was going to end. I know thrillers has to suspend belief, but this was beyond that.⁣ ⁣ Sarah’s a very talented writer and I thought she did a great job with character development. Had the book stayed its course as a true domestic psychological thriller maybe I would have given it a higher rating, but the ending felt choppy, almost like it was inserted from a different story.⁣ ⁣ Overall, an entertaining read, but not for me.⁣ ⁣ What’d you think of it?⁣

☕️ ~ “𝒟𝒶𝓇𝓁𝒾𝓃𝑔, 𝓎𝑜𝓊’𝓇𝑒 𝒶𝓁𝓇𝑒𝒶𝒹𝓎 𝒾𝓃 𝓂𝓎 𝓋𝑒𝒾𝓃𝓈.” - 𝚞𝚗𝚔𝚗𝚘𝚠𝚗 I’m obsessed with vampires. Always have been and I would lay awake at night dreaming of being ravaged by one even as a pre-teen. I used to think the characters in movies and books were crazy to be scared of a vampire. God if that were me, I would just happily lay there, jugular out, no invitation needed. Take me please. Then the other night while I was walking Bella after dark, the thought came to me- if some stranger dressed in black suddenly appeared in front of me, mouth open, I’d absolutely be terrified. I’d either die or run. • What is your bookish (or screen ) weakness? Mine👇🏼 Vampires = *add to cart

I want to read this by the end of this year. Has anyone read this and is it good? Kind of holding back on it because I want to read this authors other series. I’ve never read anything by them but can’t wait until I do. - - - Q: Whats a book you want to read before the year is over? Or a book series? - - - A: this series and the kiss of deception series, I don’t know what it’s called. And so many more books! - - - - - #book #bookworm #booknerd #bookseries #fantasy #fantasyseries #danceoftheives #thekissofdeception #booklover #bookstagram #acotar #thewickedking #reading #currentlyreading #explorepage #romancenovels #bookcommunity #bookish #vscobooks #bookishphotos #fall #lovereading #author #writing #readersofinstagram #reader #bookseriesilove #readingtime #bookphotography #bookphotography #maryepearson

« Voici mon secret. Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux. » ― Antoine De Saint-Exupéry, Le Petit Prince 🍁 Hey everyone, hope you're all okay today! What's your favorite classic book? 🍂 Mine is without a doubt The Little Prince! I read this book so many times when I was a child and I reread it as an adult, and I love the fact that you can interpret the ending so differently. 🍁 I took this photo today in Paris, I was so happy to feel the Autumn vibes already in my city. 🧡
