How are you doing this week? I have been rushed off my feet (in he best way possible! ) preparing the bookish advent calendars. It has been amazing to see your photos of the calendars that have arrived with you, and I can’t wait until December when they start being opened! I’ve ordered lots of new stock, but time may be an issue so if you are after one, I’d recommend ordering sooner rather than later. The link is in my bio! I hope you have a lovely week. What will you be reading? I’m currently reading Stone Mattress by Margaret Atwood, as recommended by the lovely @ab_reads 😊 #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookstagram #bookaholics #bookaddicts #bookcommunity #booklover #booklove #bookcollection #bookcollector #bookcollecting #bookish #bookishlove #bookishlife #bookshelf #bookshelves #bookshelfdecor #bookshelfie #shelfie #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #booksofig #booksofinsta #booksoninstagram #bookdecor

Book Review . London Incognita by Gary Budden . 4/5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ . Gritty and poetic! . Swipe for blurb . This is a collection of stories all linked by the darker side of London that is always there but rarely seen, London Incognita! . Now short story collections are not something I normally read but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. What I really appreciated was how these stories were connected, some more subtly than others. It may just be a passing mention of a character or location or some of the same characters in a different time or place. . Many of the characters in this book could be classed as misfits and outcasts. From urban explorers to punks and junkies, this book has them all! And isn’t that what London is all about? The mixing of different people! . A truly unique book that I highly recommend! If you want to experience London in an unfamiliar way then pick this up! . Massive thank you to @jordtaylorjones and @deadinkbooks for sending this over to me! It will be available from the 1st of October! . . . #londonincognita #garybudden #deadink #deadinkbooks #adamtriesreviews #bookreview #bookreviews #bookreviewers #bookreviewer #bookblog #bookblogger #bookblogging #bookbloggers #bookstagrammers #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #bookstgram #booksta #booksofinstagram #booksofig #booksofinsta #readersofinstagram #readersofig #readersofinsta

🖤 Hej, hej!🦊 Zbliżamy się do końcówki września, więc pomyślałam, że dzisiaj przedstawię Wam moje najbliższe plany czytelnicze na październik. Tak jak już pewnie zauważyliście, są to tylko (albo aż ) dwie książki, a to dlatego, że najprawdopodobniej nie będę mieć zbyt dużo czasu na czytanie😅 (Nawet jeszcze nie skończyłam „Mroczniejszego odcienia magii", więc...😂 ). Pierwszą książką jaką wybrałam jest „Mroczny duet", ponieważ jest na moim profilowym, a ja nawet jeszcze go nie przeczytałam😂 Nie no, a tak na serio to po prostu jestem ciekawa jak potoczą się dalsze losy bohaterów (a głównie Augusta❤️ ) i czy zostaną zamknięte wszystkie otwarte dotąd wątki z poprzedniego tomu. „Piękno, które pozostanie" to książka, na którą (z bólem serca muszę to przyznać ) trochę minęła mi ochota. Nadal chcę ją przeczytać, ale już nie tak bardzo jak kiedyś... Jednak mimo wszystko leży u mnie już dość długo, więc w przyszłym miesiącu na pewno się za nią zabiorę, no i zobaczymy co z tego wyjdzie😇 🖤 #bookpost #bookishcommunity #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #booksofig #bookstagramfeature #bookstagrampl #mybookishlife #octobertbr #booksphotos #bookstagrampolska #bookstagrampoland #octoberbooks #bookishlove #autumnbookstagram #tobereadlist #bookstagrampl 📚 #literaturelover #lightbook #booksofig #mybookishfeatures #mybooklife #bookstagram #readingtime #readingcommunity #readmorebooks #bookishfeature #bookishaccount

🍁Reseña🍁 . 🍂’El fantasma de la ópera’ de Gaston Leroux🍂 . 📚 Hace unos años vi por primera vez la adaptación musical de ‘El fantasma de la ópera’ protagonizada por Gerard Butler y Emmy Rossum, y quedé encantada por la belleza del filme y su música, así que cuando supe que estaba basado en un libro, me di a la tarea de investigarlo, y fue como llegué a él. Comparado con el filme, tiene sus diferencias, pero es maravilloso, es una historia muy cruel y a la vez preciosa, Gaston Leroux tenía un gran don con la pluma, y supo plasmarlo muy bien en su obra más famosa. Ningún personaje es bueno, todos tienen defectos graves, cada uno representa un nivel y una forma de egoísmo muy cruda, sobretodo los tres principales: Christine, Raoul, y Erick, el Fantasma, realmente no se empatiza con ninguno, pero terminas sintiendo pena por Erick, relacionas sus motivos con sus acciones, de hecho es el mejor de la historia. Está tan bien construido que aunque haga cosas horribles, es difícil odiarlo. Y aunque sea una historia escrita, llega un punto en el que te envuelve como si estuvieses presenciándolo en vivo, la música sobretodo y la arquitectura. Cada palabra y situación dentro de la obra, es una manera muy astuta de representar el efecto de otros en las personas, como influyen en nuestro comportamiento y en nuestros sentimientos, como una acción pasada repercute en el presente de una u otra manera. Es un libro bastante humano, un clásico imperdible que nos muestra que no todo es perfecto ni color de rosa, y que, al final, todos llevamos máscaras, invisibles, pero muchas veces notorias.📚 . ✨4.5/5✨ • • [ #elfantasmadelaopera #thephantomoftheopera #gastonleroux #bookaesthetic #bookstagrammer #vintagebooks #vintagebookstagram #booklover #bookaesthetic #booksofig #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammexico ]

My have this friend who thinks she needs to buy a new mug every time she leaves her house... 🙄 Okay, okay it’s me. 😂 I can’t help it, though! Especially during this time of year. Fall mugs are always just SO cute. This one is my new favorite! I’m excited for today because 1- it’s my Friday, 2- there are a couple new books out I can’t wait to grab, and 3- I woke up early enough to go to TJ Maxx before work! I’m currently about 75% through ACOWAR, and plan to finish it tonight! I have plenty of homework to do, but it’s hard for me to focus when I can’t stop thinking about the book I’d rather be reading 😜 What are you reading this week? #acotar #acowar #rhysand #feyre #feysand #books #bookish #bookstagram #booklove #booklover #booknerd #bookworm #bookpic #bookishphoto #booktography #bookishphotography #booksofig #instabooks #read #reader #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #bookshark #bionicbookbabes #booksharks #thebookcommunity_ #2020reads #bookishbounds #septemberreads

Did you know that there is a tradition in Iceland called Jolabokaflod? Roughly translated it means "Christmas Book Flood" Why am I just know hearing about this? Why aren't we giving each other books on Christmas Eve, curling up by the fire with a cup of cocoa, and reading? This sounds amazing!! #amwriting #rewriting #writinggoals #finishthenovel #fiction #amwritingfiction #writing #authorsofinstagram #writingcommunity #writingcommunityofinstagram #books #booksofinstagram #booksofig #authorsofig #indieauthor #amreading #reading #christmasboomflood #christmaseve

Thoughts on unreliable narrators? I honestly enjoy them m, of course it done well. Love the way it keeps you thinking and guessing.⁣ ⁣ I read this book after it came out even though I'm not the biggest fan of Colleen Hoover. To be honest, her writing style kind of falls flat for me. It's almost too childish/teen like (I'm also not big strictly romance books which is her thing ). However there were so many good reviews for Verity and I really wanted to read a thriller. I definitely won't read it again. The writing style hadn't changed too much. And if you're in the mood of a good suspenseful thriller, not too sure I'd recommend this for you. It's more a dark erotica. Some lines really got me like 'omg' but I'm definitely not with the popular of opinion of absolutely loving this book.⁣ ⁣ 2.5⭐ at best for me. ⁣ ⁣ Just fair warning for the dark, uncomfortable material that pushes boundaries and comfort⁣ Along with way too many unnecessary sex scenes that just made it too hard to get into the actually story. ⁣ ⁣ ⚠️ Trigger warning for talk of abortion and child abuse along with the very graphic sex scenes. ⁣ °⁣ °⁣ ° ⁣ #verity #colleenhoover #thrillerbooks #bookish #bookster #bibliophile #bookcommunity #bookblogger #booksofinsta #cozymood #cozyvibes #igreads #booksofig #cozyreads #bookstagram #readmorebooks #bookgram #bookishfeed #booksaremagic #bookish #readersofinstagram #bookflatlay #fortheloveofreading #bookaesthetic

Pizza Girl - ⭐⭐⭐✨/5 Do you guys prefer reading longer books or shorter books? Personally I like both and it really depends on my mood! 🍕 Pizza girl is a pretty short read, just a bit too long to be a novella. 🍕 It's the story of a young girl, pregnant, who works as a pizza delivery driver. She meets some pretty crazy characters when out on deliveries but one day there's one who really sticks in her mind... 🍕 This book started off being funny but got pretty dark towards the end. It explores all the fears that come with teenage pregnancy for both the mother and the father. 🍕 I enjoyed Pizza Girl but I wanted the humour that it opens with to carry through the book more! #pizzagirl #jeankyoungfrazier #bookreview #beautifulbooks #bookblogger #bookblog #fiction #booktography #bookowl #booknerd #bibliophile #booklove #booklover #booksandplants #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofig #igbooms #bookdragon #bookworm #booksbooksbooks #reading #lovereading #bookaddict #bookphoto #bookish #bookishlove #booklife

#currentlyreading this beautiful book 🔪 . . . This book is just *chef's kiss* in all its vulgar, sexed-up, gorey delights. Absolute peak pretention. It's written memoir-style from a (fictional ) food critic turned cannibal. It's not out for a while yet so I'll post a full review closer to its release in December but it's definitely worth a pre-order. . . . #acertainhunger #chelseagsummers #unnamedpress #literaryfiction #horrorbooks #fallreads #amreading #readingtime #read #reader #indiepress #smallpress #spookyreads #spookyseason #readingandeating #booklover #bookcover #bookstack #bookpile #rosegrown #beautifulbooks #bibliophile #booksofinstagram #booksofig #readwomen #booklover #booklove #readthis #bookrecommendation

Here's another gorgeous bookstore that I saw on my most recent holiday to Wales. I've been wanting to revisit this bookstore for so long since going there for the first time a couple of years ago. Whilst we were on holiday we made a special trip to the Haverfordwest where this bookstore is located so that I could visit and buy some books ☺️ My absolute favourite thing about this bookstore is that they sell brand new books but for slightly cheaper prices. So if you're on a bit of a budget like me, then this is the perfect bookstore to visit for all your bookish needs but for a brilliant price! 🤑 - #qotd what's your favourite genre that you will always come back to? - - #books #bookstore #bookishlove #booklove #bookobsessed #booksofig #readsofig #readstagram #bookgram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #instabooks #bookish #bookpic #bookpost #bookaddict #bookgram #bookworm #goodreads #reads #ilovebooks #ilovereading #bookcommunity #tbrlist #bookhaul #bookaesthetic #bibliophile #wales

My first book review🌻🌻 Starting off with one of the books I recently devoured in 2 days last week! Kim Jiyoung is a stay-home mother and wife who slowly sees herself spiralling into a world filled with hypocrisy, misogyny and partiality that seeks to gnaw at the women because of the very fact that they are women. Her home, workplace and familial relations are all characterized by gender differences and expectations that stifle and worse, alter one's self-worth. I have never read much about South Korea's patriarchy although I do hear stories once in a while. This beautiful narrative opened a whole new world for me, making me think about how social perceptions are so aggressively sticky. A system that drives women to isolation and exclusion is sure to crumble. The tragedy, though, lies in the fact that women are caught in the crossfire for no visible reason except their gender. Definitely a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5 from me. What are your thoughts about Kim Jiyoung, born 1982? #bookstagram #kimjiyoungborn1982 #booklover #books #fiction #novel #booksofinstagram #booksofig

Has anyone else already started decorating for Halloween? I always bring this book out this time of year. It’s so nostalgic for me. My family celebrates Halloween like other families celebrate Christmas. We love the spooky stories and movies, hand-making costumes, carving pumpkins, and trick-or-treating *twice* every October. This book is just a snippet of those revered traditions. Most people recognize Norman Bridwell as the author of Clifford the Big Red Dog, but I prefer his monster pet stories. He writes them in a How To format, which could be one of the reasons I’m still drawn to that style of writing in one of my other favorite authors - Lorrie Moore. But now I’m just rambling. Anyways, please tell me I’m not the only one who has heard of this book!

This week's book review os Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia. In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, she’s LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves the online one, and she has no desire to try. Then Wallace Warland, Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfiction writer, transfers to her school. Wallace thinks Eliza is just another fan, and as he draws her out of her shell, she begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile. But when Eliza’s secret is accidentally shared with the world, everything she’s built—her story, her relationship with Wallace, and even her sanity—begins to fall apart.

„The trees speak Latin. " - Maggie Stiefvater, The Raven cycle Je nejaká kniha, ktorú by ste chceli vidieť sfilmovanú? ✨ Ja by určite chcela vidieť sfilmované série Havraní cyklus a A Darker Shade Of Magic. Viem, že filmové adaptácie oboch sérií sa už nejakú dobu chystajú, no stále o nich moc informácií nemáme. Jediné čo viem je, že sa momentálne píšu scenáre k obom filmom. ✨ A aby som nezabudla, tiež sa veľmi teším na seriálové adaptácie Vranej šestky a Percyho Jacksona. ✨ #theravencycle #theravenboys #trc #maggiestiefvater #havranicyklus #havranichlapci #ctenijesexy #bookstagram #booksofig #readingtime #dnescitam #dnesctu #cocitam #cocitat #tipnaknihu #vfayelibrary #prokrastinujictenim #ukazcoctes #booklover #bookworm #bookpost #knihy #knihomol #bookaholic #books #slovart #booklabsk

I recently finished 'Splinters of Scarlet' and I really enjoyed the story. In this world using magic is going to kill you. If you reach too deep, stretch yourself too much, the Firn - snowflakes looking ice - will spread under your skin and turn you into the icicle. There is no going back if you notice symptoms and there is no cure for it. The main plot is about the family owning the gems mines and the young girl who has lost her dad in mine accident and big sister to the Firn. There is murder, mystery, missing servants, ballet, live, friendship, science and magic, magic, magic. Very entertaining book. Also, this book was in one of @bookboxclub boxes and I have enjoyed all of their book choices so far which was never the case with other subscription boxes. I hope that would be the case in the future as well! . . #bookstagrammer #bookboxsubscription #bookboxlub #splintersofscarlet #booksph #bookstagram #bookish #booksofig #amreader #readersofinstagram #reader #booknerd #bookgirl #fantasy #przeczytane #takczytam #czytambolubie #coffeeandbooks #cosytime #coffeetime

#confuzzledbookreview . Book : Maybe you should talk to someone. Author : Lori Gottlieb. Genre : Memoir. . Lori, a successful therapist and a single mother, finds herself on the other end of the couch when all of a sudden her boyfriend of three years dumps her. She believes that's she going to take therapy only to have someone agree with her at what a jerk his ex-boyfriend was and how hard it is for her to get over it, but it leads to a greater self-discovery when she starts reliving the past moments that she believed she had long forgotten, but they had been bugging her subconsciously. Along with her self-experience as a person seeking therapy, she also takes us through her journey as a therapist, revealing to us some of the struggles of her patients, and even though we are different from them, their struggles are universal. I found myself laughing, crying and rooting for them at various moments in the book. Although the names of her patients and therapists have been changed for doctor-patient confidentiality, the stories, the experiences, the conversations are real and honest. Through the course of almost a year, we see them grow and learn and survive. For a person who hasn't experienced therapy yet, I cannot give you any expert opinion about it, but to me, this book in itself felt like a therapy. I felt as if I was there, sharing the couch with them, and listening to their stories and laughing and sobbing with them. It destigmatises the traditional beliefs of therapy, and gives us a first-hand account into what therapy looks and feels like. It makes us realise that sometimes a therapist needs a therapist too, and that it's completely okay. Being a medical student,I absolutely loved the detailed accounts of her medical school experience. It is a heart-warming, funny, emotional story about a therapist and her relationship and experiences with her own therapist and her patients which forces us to look at our inner selves too and makes us have faith, that things do get better, no matter how hard it may seem. You should read it even if you are remotely interested in the therapeutic process or about life in general. CONTD. IN COMMENTS 👇

Can't read this title without thinking of that one tiktok (Meteor? Meatier. ) I'm sorry I'm like this lmao ☆ Miss Meteor is an incredibly sweet book about friendship and identity. This story follows Lita and Chicky - two best friends who drifted apart in middle school because their truths became too overwhelming and scary to share with one another - and the town beauty pageant (Miss Meteor ) that brings them back together. What begins as a revenge plot ends up being a super cute underdog story of two brown girls discovering who they are and their place in a world that doesn't really want them in the first place. ☆ SO UM NGL I didn't realize the whole Lita is from space thing was real until a few chapters in LMAO I was like hm 🤔 Shes becoming stardust? 🤔🤔 What does that mean??? 🤔🤔🤔 until I was like oh shes like ACTUALLY from the meteorite ok lmao like idk I just wasn't expecting any kind of sci-fi spin when I picked this up so it really threw me off at first but its so quickly normalized in the story like yes its a major plot point that the stardust is spreading but its not a major conflict that shes from space if that makes sense? also there is a trans character who's sister bullies/ostracizes Chicky for not being straight and i liked how they didn't gloss over it and actually discussed that it can be your OWN family that spews hate and ignorance while also saying they accept you as you are in the same breath like the hypocrisy of it all u kno? idk it was uncomfortable to read obv but it was also realistic? and the authors confronted it head on which I really appreciated I dont have much else to say about this book except that we love growth and vulnerability and found family 🥺 its just such a sweet feel good story 🥺 and i don't have a equally cute picture because its grey today and the book is due in like three hours oopsie poopsie! but that being said some TW below: TW for transphobia, homophobia, xenophobia, and bullying

Here’s another pretty little backlog photo for you!! 💛✨ Thank you all for being so kind during my week long absence! This has been the toughest week of our babe’s life- refusal to eat is an honest-to-God nightmare. But we’ve got doctors on our side, a medical plan, perseverance, and a strong babe who is getting through it all. But this entire week, I kept finding solace in scrolling through bookstagram and had a continued desire to create and disappointment at not finishing my monthly challenge- so maybe bookstagram isn’t actually the thing to put on hold and is instead the thing to keep me sane. I hope you’ll all continue to be patient with me as I figure out the best plan for me in terms of when to take photos, when and how often to post, a possible editing/style change, etc. but I’m just happy to be back creating and talking with you all! I am also blown away by the fact that there are now 900 of you! I feel so incredibly loved. I took some photos today in honor of my babe turning 5 months old! So I’ll post them tomorrow for another BOOKS WITH BABES feature! Woohoo! And my question for you today is: how was your past week?? Tell me something you did or something good that happened! 🎧 Without Me by Eminem 😉 HASHTAGS: #bookstagram #mybooksandmybabes #bibliophile #bookish #bookworm #bookblogger #tbr #booklover #booksofinstagram #bookstagrammers #hygge #cosy #readersofinsta #bookasthetic #ireadya #bookcommunity #booksofig #bookishfeatures #mybookfeatures #readingblogger #readersofinstagram #bookphotography #readeveryday #booksaremagic #bookstagramnewbie #newbookstagram #bibliofeature #cozyread #sweaterweather

How often do you buy books? And where do you get most of your books from? . When I first got back into reading as an adult, I spent a small fortune on buying new books. I never really hoarded them, but going through five or six novels each month meant that I was forever in Waterstones, picking up paperback after paperback. . It took me some (embarrassing length of ) time before I remembered that, hey, you can buy books secondhand! . Fast forward a few years and now my shelves are stocked up with lucky finds and blind gambles from charity shops and market stalls and library sales. There's such a wonderful sense of joy at browsing the bookshelves, not knowing what you'll find, but knowing it'll be a bloody bargain! . Here's a stack of #BooksIThrifted recently from various sellers and library sales. I've not dipped into any yet, but very excited to do so! . Have you read any of these titles, or are any on your TBR? Struggling to choose which to start with first! . . . . #secondhandseptember #thriftedbooks #thrifted #secondhandbooks #secondhandfinds #buyused #buyusedbooks #bookblogger #bookrecommendations #tbr #tbrpile #fallreads #bookishcommunity #madaboutbooks #bookshelf #bookshelfie #bibliophile #librarylove #loveyourlibrarystack #girlswhoread #booklife #booksofig #instabooks #booksofinstagram #readersofinstagram #bookstagram

What’s the last thing you bought? Doesn’t have to be book related! I recently bought this nail polish 💅🏼 and this scrunchie 💇🏼‍♀️ and I also just got this new book in the mail @randomhouse #partner . This is Picoult’s newest release, and it was just published this week! Fun fact: I’ve never read a Jodi Picoult book! I have a few of her titles on my shelves but haven’t read them yet. I need to. Do you have a favorite of hers?

Dzień dobry! Cisza o poranku, mgła unosząca się nad trawą za oknem, spokój wypełniający każdy kąt... i stukot klawiatury mechanicznej, który dogorywającego człowieka postawiłby na nogi. Odkąd pandemia przejęła kontrolę nad naszym życiem, cisza to rzadki gość w naszym mieszkaniu, choć ostatnio coraz więcej czasu potrzebuję na poranny rozruch szarych komórek, w związku z czym ogary piekielne w postaci stukających klawiszy nadchodzą nieco później. I mimo że kompletnie nie jestem rannym ptaszkiem, polubiłam te godziny spokoju o poranku, zwłaszcza odkąd oboje z konkubentem pracujemy z domu. Człowiek wtedy zaczyna doceniać każdy ułamek chwili, który ma wyłącznie dla siebie. A u Was - kiedy panuje największy spokój? Dobrego dnia! #instawtorek_kfs @kobiecafotoszkola #instawtorek #bookstagram #bookstagrampl #polishbookstagram #polskiebookstagramy #bookphotography #booklove #bookslovers #czytambolubie #instabooks #ig_books #bookstagramtopasja #igreads #takczytam #bibliophile #BDloves #bookslovers #mybookfeatures #bookishfeatures #infinity_magazine_vsco #bookreader #bookgasm #booksofig #top_bookstagram #stilllife_perfection #bookhoarder #booksandflowers

𝐾𝑒𝑙𝑙 𝑤𝑜𝑟𝑒 𝑎 𝑣𝑒𝑟𝑦 𝑝𝑒𝑐𝑢𝑙𝑖𝑎𝑟 𝑐𝑜𝑎𝑡. — Happy Monday, lovelies. I took a few bookish photo today for the first time in probably 6 months. What possibly motivated me? The #irememberyouaddie giveaway hosted by Delara and Tiffany, of course! There are no shortage of epic first lines available, but this trilogy particularly caught me off guard by how much I absolutely loved it. I’ve loved everything I’ve read from @veschwab , so I don’t know why I’m surprised any more. — Alligator felt the need to photobomb my set-up today and I’m not mad about it. I’m still feeling out of sorts and slightly disconnected with my photos... so please be patient as I try and get my groove/confidence/mojo back. — 𝐇𝐚𝐬𝐡𝐭𝐚𝐠𝐬 ⇣ #books #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofig #bookworm #bookish #booksofinstagram #ilovebooks #booklover #bookcommunity #bookishphotography #bookphoto #bookstack #bookaddict #favoritereads #bookstaspooks #loveforallthebooks #adsom #veschwab #adarkershadeofmagic #catsandbooks #bookishcat #catsofinstagram #kittylove #fantasyreads

BOOK REVIEW ✨⁣ ⁣ Happy Tuesday!! STOLEN THINGS had been on my shelf for almost a year now and thanks to a buddy read, I finally found the time to read it. I began reading this after I finished what was probably a top 2020 read for me so my review may be a little harsh because of that.⁣ Stolen Things 4/5 ⭐️ ⁣ What I liked:⁣ 🍁 short chapters⁣ 🍁 heavy issues dealt with⁣ 🍁 Jojo as a character was a badass ⁣ 🍁 Laurie and Kevin were both fantastic too⁣ 🍁 the premise of the story⁣ ⁣ What I didn't like:⁣ 🍁 unlikable characters - so many unlikable characters (you'll understand if you have read )⁣ 🍁 some parts didn't make sense/didn't seem necessary to put into the story⁣ ⁣ STOLEN THINGS incorporates some heavier topics that can be difficult to talk about too such as police corruption, LGBTA topics, rape and more. Overall I didn't see the ending coming which is why I am giving this 4 stars. ⁣ ⁣ Apparently it’s National coffee day & I was unaware 🤪 guess below how many books I’ve read so far this year & you’ll be entered to win a $5 Starbucks gift card! I’ll announce the winner tomorrow! Good luck 🍀
