Knocking out two challenges in one 👊🏻 I’ve been meaning to participate in @thecrimebookshelf ’s #matchyourdrinkstack for ages and book & beverage is one of the prompts for this month’s #betweenthelookingglass I had been considering trying this wine for a while, but I’m so picky, I’ve been nervous to buy it. But then there was a coupon so 🤷🏼‍♀️ Had to give it a shot. Also, when we were checking out at the grocery store, the cashier asked me if I wanted it left out... FYI I do not live in a state where it’s okay to have an open alcoholic beverage in the car even if you’re the passenger. 😂 I’m guessing she didn’t realize it was wine and I think I probably gave her a weird look. Good thing I had my mask on, maybe it partially hid puzzled expression. 🤪 . . . #lindseyrbtw #bookstack #bookspines #bookstackchallenge #bookandbeverage #bookanddrink #booksandbeer #booksandwine

#Repost @simplybeccamee . We can't wait to read this sequel! . • • • • • • Jackson, Mississippi ⁣ ☀️𝐅𝐑𝐈𝐃𝐀𝐘☀️ ⁣ “𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘐 𝘢𝘮 𝘩𝘢𝘴 𝘯𝘰 𝘣𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘰𝘯 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘐 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘣𝘦𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘦.” ⁣ ⁣ Happy Friday, peeps! ⁣ ⁣ The Damned by @reneeahdieh was one of my most anticipated reads this summer, and when I did finally have it in my hands, I devoured it and was not disappointed one bit!⁣ ⁣ I adored The Beautiful, but let me tell you, I am OBSESSED with the Damned. I didn’t know it was possible to love a sequel so much more than the first book which I loved so much, but I was blown away by every aspect of this book. Bastien and Celine are both separated by choices made the night of Mardi Gras. As Bastien grapples with his new vampiric nature, Celine desperately yearns to remember what happened the night she was attacked. Once more, fate brings these two lovers together, but there are sinister forces at play in both New Orleans and lands beyond that could mean war for the supernatural creatures that reside in its limits. ⁣ ⁣ This sequel completely levels up the plot with the addition of all these other magical creatures, characters and elevated stakes. I loved the incorporation of the fey here and how all the different supernatural species and worlds interconnected here. It was fascinating. I also love the tortured romance between. Bastien and Celine as they are lost to each other for a time and the joy I felt seeing them brought back together. Once again, Renée Ahdieh is a world class writer whose gorgeous prose packs a heck of a punch yet is atmospheric. Truly I adored this book and it reminds me why Ahdieh is one of my favorite authors. The Damned is about fighting for true love and determining the type of person you want to be for yourself.⁣ ⁣ 𝐐𝐎𝐓𝐃 Tell me about an anticipated read you had that exceeded your expectations.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #bookstagram #bookstagrammers #bookstafam #bookworm #booklovers #bookdragon #coverlove #booklove #bibliophile #bookishlife #readersofinstagram #readerlife #bookish #bookishcommunity #amreading #ireadya #yafantasy #bookphotography #bookstalore #fantasyonfriday #thedamned #bookreview #allthebooksaug20 #bookstaswift

I finished a book on Tuesday and picked up The Shadows right after that. If I’ve learned anything about myself from my time on #bookstagram , it’s that I gotta stop blaming myself when I can’t get into a book right away. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I definitely still want to read The Shadows, but I started Dear Emmie Blue while holding Brynn and was at 12% before I knew it. Emmie captured me right away so I’m excited to keep reading. The Night Swim came out on the 4th and I got a few messages about how good it was so I’m going to pick that one up this weekend too? What are you reading this weekend? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #nerdoutwithmybookout #booknerdssharelove #booksarelife #bookstagram #readerlife #cozyreading #igreads #booknerd #readeveryday #readmore #readersofinstagram #beautifulbooks #bookphotography #totalbooknerd #readmore #voraciousreader #booksbooksbooks #booksofig

Let's talk about TV shows we miss... I really enjoyed Newsroom and was sad to see it end. I would love to see their take on current and recent events. The power of journalism is amazing! Another answer for me would be The Office. What TV shows do you miss? . Today, I'm happy to share with you The Golden Thread, a spy story so thrilling you won’t believe it’s nonfiction. #thegoldenthread is a true story of spies and intrigue surrounding one of the most enduring unsolved mysteries of the 20th century, investigative reporter Ravi Somaiya uncovers the story behind the death of renowned diplomat and UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjöld.

Hey book nuggets!! Happy Friday! 🎉😄 How did your week go by? Mine was okay. Just still a little stressful because of my job. The system they have us using is not user friendly and most of the time I get frustrated because it makes no sense! Lol there are other factors at play also but overall I like it. ▪️ Behold! My very first book heart! Lol I'm always super concerned about making these because I hate when there are certain pages that are bent or wobbly in a book. I think I'm a bit neurotic about it. ▪️ This post is for the #outdoorbookstagrammersaug2020 challenge. I really love my new phone's camera features! ▪️ QOTD : How do you take your bookstagram photos? Do you use your phone camera or a digital one? Do you use any other photo editing software or just what Insta has to offer? ▪️ I'm working my way through the first three Twilight movies right now. I've had a lot of bottled up emotions and as lame as it sounds, they always make me cry and I really need to do that before my head implodes or I end up with some stomach ulcers. ▪️ I hope you all have a lovely rest of your day! Love ya'll! 😘💕 Stay weird, book nuggets.

“Those who know what it’s like in the dark will do anything to stay in the light.” - Victoria Aveyard, King’s Cage (Red Queen, #3 ) . So I started reading The Raven Boys but I just could not get into it! Idk if I just don’t like the style or if it’s because I’ve been pretty tired these last few days...having a newborn who wakes up every four hours while you yourself can’t sleep is not a good combo lol my anxiety has been preventing me from sleeping but I’m taking steps to fix it! Can’t have my anxiety ruling my life! . But I decided to ditch it for awhile and instead go to one of my favorite series! The Red Queen series!! I love this series because of the amount of raw emotion in it! Especially later on! I love that it talks about PTSD and how harmful it can be. How it damages everything and how hard it is for people to understand what you’re going through. I can relate to it on a very personal level and I think it will help with the feelings I’ve been having! It’s just a truly fantastic series! And one that I’m happy to devour again!

#qotd : What are some of your favorite bookish small businesses?📚 ——————————— • ♡︎ • ——————————— This year I have tried my best to only purchase from small businesses. Especially bookish ones. I just feel it is so important to show them support during this time when people are avoiding or not able to go out and shop. One of my favorites is @wickedwhimsyboutique which is where this gorgeous mug came from! How perfectly does this mug go with my coffee! Use code BOOKSNCOFFEE at @wickedwhimsyboutique to save! 🖤 ——————————— • ♡︎ • ——————————— The shop owner @wickedvampa seriously creates the most beautiful apparel, necklaces, mugs and lip balms you have ever seen!

Let me get this confession out in the open: I like romance novels. That being said, I don’t love the “steamy” bits that come with some of them. Shadow Mountain publishing has come out with a line of books called Proper Romance, these tend to fit my style - the regency era ones anyway. Julianne Donaldson and Josi S. Kilpack, in particular are some of the ones I enjoy the most. . For some reason, I feel shame with this enjoyment. Like I have to justify why I enjoy reading these books. Yes, I know these characters aren’t realistic. Yes, I know some scenes are ridiculous and cringe worthy. Yes, if these were made into movies they would get the same awful critic score that every other romance movie gets. And yet, I really really enjoy them all the same. And if they were ever made into movies I would FOR SURE watch them. . So you’re going to see cheesy, fluffy, entertaining romance pop up from time to time. Swipe to see some that I’ve read so far this year. Plus a funny meme shared by a friend that is hilariously acurrate for this crazy year of 2020. . . . . . #fighttheshame #bookstagram #bookish #reader #booksbooksbooks #bibliophile #readerlife #whatimreading #properromance #shadowmoutainpublishing @shadowmountainpub #josiskilpack @authorjosiskilpack #juliannedonaldson @writerjulianne

"My name is Celaena Sardothien, and I will not be afraid" I loved these novellas, though perhaps the first three more than the last two. I finally got to see Celaena pre-Throne of Glass and, surprisingly and unsurprisingly, she doesn't seem much different. I did get a miffed at the constant repetition of Sam in her life and then Sam being gone as each novella progressed. I think I assumed that she and Sam were together when they were betrayed rather than her being reckless in her love and need for revenge, "I am nobody without him" trope. Though I enjoyed the last few pages in which her character hardens up and becomes the Celaena we meet in TOG. I'm really sad about Ansel's character though, however if I remember rightly she comes back much better in Empire of Storms? Either way, loved Celaena and Ansel's relationship before it all went wrong. #theassassinsblade #throneofglassseries #sarahjmaas #bookishphotography #bookblog #instabooks #readerlife #darkacademia #lightacademia #aspiringwriter #literature #bookstagram #bookish #bibliophile #bookworm #bookdragon #bookaholic #bookcommunity    #readersofinstagram #writersofinstagram   #theatreenthusiast #artdabbler #bookstagrammer #edited #iamawriter #iamareader #readingcommunity #writersandreaders #bookstagrammers #writer

Hii bookstagram🍃 . . How do you guys handle reading slumps? I didn't read a lot in the last few days, it's a little reading slump currently :( But now I'm quite motivated to finally finish 'Crown of Midnight' : ) The story was a bit boring during the first half, so I've decided to pause it for a bit, hopefully it will get better and be as good as the first novel. And hopefully my reading slump will end👀 . . Wie geht ihr mit Leseflauten um? Ich hab leider in den letzten Tagen nicht so viel gelesen, bin gerade leider in einer kleinen Leseflaute :( Aber jetzt bin ich relativ motiviert endlich mal 'Throne of Glass - Kriegerin im Schatten' zuende zu lesen. Ich hatte das Buch zwischenzeitlich unterbrochen, da es sich doch schon etwas gezogen hat in der ersten Hälfte. Hoffentlich wird es es jetzt noch so gut, wie der erste Band. Und hoffentlich endet auch endlich die Leseflaute👀 . . .

📚 She’s Faking It by Kristin Rockaway was a good read & I enjoyed it! Telling the story of Bree Bozeman, the book opens with the likable & understandable main character who is facing some challenges. 📚 I really liked the book because it was fun & relaxing, just what a summer book should be. It’s the perfect antidote for this pandemic stress. The book is focused on Bree’s exploration of who she is & what she wants out of her life. Turning points impact all of us at different times in our life & that’s what drew me into the book. I wanted to see what Bree did next & how she changed. Set in Pacific Beach in San Diego, the book setting was a new one for me. The descriptions of the Pacific Beach area made me feel like I’d taken a little armchair vacation. It was relaxing & fun, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. 📚 Thank you to NetGalley for the complimentary copy of the book in exchange for my honest review. • • • • • • • #ToBeRead #TBRpile #TBRlist #CurrentReads #BookPile #ReadersofIG #ReadersOfInsta #BooksofIG #BookishLove #ReadingLife #ReaderLife #WhatToRead #ReadEveryDay #AllTheBooks #BookRecommendations #BookReview #BookReviewer #BooksToRead #SmartFunBook #NetGalley #WomensFiction #ShesFakingIt #Harlequin #KristinRockaway

Intimations by Zadie Smith - a great, short set of 6 essays about the pandemic, Lockdown, time, creativity, racism and so much more. Mostly I envy her ability to even think about anything with this level of clarity and level-headedness. When we were in Lockdown my brain was in a total fog and I could barely read let alone write.

Rumour has it this is one of @barackobama ’s favourite books! Despite being sentenced to live the rest of his life inside the Metropol Hotel during the rise of communism in Russia, Count Alexander Rostov remains a true gentleman. He’s a suave, cool dude. The book spans 30 years as Count Rostov develops many interesting relationships among the confines of the hotel. While the book at times seemed to drag on, his character was fascinating, which ultimately kept me turning the pages. Did you also find this book a slower read? 3 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #historicalfiction #agentlemaninmoscow #amortowles #dogsandbooks #bookaddict #bookcommunity #instagramreads #bookstagrammers #bookwormsofinstagram #readingaddict #bookaholic #bookstagrammersunite #booksarelife #booksaremagic #readergram #fortheloveofreading #readerlife #booksofinsta #instabooks

💭 Short and sweet captions or longer and more personal ? What do you prefer and what works better in your opinion ? . I have a very busy weekend ahead. Finally, we are able to play beach volleyball tournaments in London and I couldn't be more excited ! ☀️ Our season had been postponed due to Covid, but I am glad that we still managed to squeeze some plays at the very end of the season. Of course, under very strict rules and limited capacity, but it is what I love, therefore my weekend is going to be THE BEST 🤩🏐 YESSS ! How are you spending your weekend ? How active are you on a scale of 1 to 10 ?

I can't believe it's already August. These are the last two books I purchased in July. I'm trying to limit my book buying a bit in this month, but it's hard because I feel like so many great books have come out recently (so many great releases this week in particular! ) and my wish list is pretty long. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What was the last book that you bought?

I wanted to highlight a few of the special editions I’ve gotten from book subscription box companies! . It’s been wild to see these companies grow, and to now see all these amazing special editions coming exclusively with these companies. I will say it hasn’t been the greatest for my wallet 🤦🏻‍♂️ whether it’s part of the monthly box, or a separate new cover design! . Fairyloot: The Midnight Lie, Caraval, The Queen of Nothing. . Owlcrate: Where Dreams Descend, Crown Of Feathers, Sorcery of Thorns. . Illumicrate: The Starless Sea, The Court of Miracles, The Wicked King. . I’m patiently waiting on some that I’ve ordered, like the Red Rising set (still upset I wasn’t able to get the Daevabad set ). Also, The Daughter of Smoke and Bone box! . Do you have any special editions from subscription boxes?!

[ #booktag ] What have you been loving lately?⁠ 💛⁠ ⁠ Do you remember that scene in the first Avengers movie where Loki gets utterly THRASHED by the Hulk? Well, that's what this week has done to me. It picked me up, tossed me around like a ragdoll, and pretty much just wrecked me. And it's not even over yet. (Anybody else feel this way too? Raise your hand in the comments if it's not just me 🙋 )⁠ ⁠ That's why today I'm doing the #itsallaboutlovetag – instead of focusing on all the things I dislike about my life right now, I want to spotlight what I've been loving lately. To remind myself that there are, in fact, reasons to be grateful right now. Give me all that positivity, because I need it!⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠。。。。。。。。。。。。⁠ ⁠ 📖 BOOK YOU'VE LOVED LATELY ⁠= A Song of Wraiths and Ruin⁠ by Roseanne A.

𝓣𝓱𝓮 𝓢𝓾𝓲𝓬𝓲𝓭𝓮 𝓗𝓸𝓾𝓼𝓮 * ⭐️⭐️⭐️ * Every year, a few lucky juniors are chosen to take part in The Man in the Mirror. If they pass, they’ll be the top dogs on campus the next year. In 2019, this game turned deadly. Now, a year later, 3 of the survivors have returned to the same spot to kill themselves. The question everyone is asking is why? * I was totally hooked on the synopsis and thought for sure I was going to love this book. However, it turned out to be just average and left me wanting for more. I was able to guess the ending (which I can NEVER do ), so that was a bit of a bummer as well. I love to be surprised and shocked when the final reveal happens! So for me, this one was just okay. Full review coming soon to my blog, link in bio! * Thank you to @kensingtonbooks for an early copy of this book in exchange for my honest review! * * 𝘘𝘖𝘛𝘋: 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘪𝘴 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘮𝘰𝘴𝘵 𝘢𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘤𝘪𝘱𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘈𝘶𝘨𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘥? * * #bookblogger #bookstagram #booklover #bookaddict #book #books #booksofinstagram #bookstagrammers #bookishthings #bookblog #bookbloggers #bookbloggersofinstagram #bookhoarder #bookreviews #bookaholic #bookreview #losangelesbooks #losangeles #booksharks #bookstagrammer #readerlife #bookstagramit #readinglife #readallthebooks #mystery #creepy #thrillerbooks #thriller

we left the lake yesterday but had the best escape 🙏🏼 we had a few cold days that allowed me to cuddle up to these two romance books here. full reviews to come, but i wanted to share my quick thoughts.⁣ ⁣ #qotd : what did you read this week? tell me the good, bad and the ugly!⁣ ⁣ CONFESS felt so different to me than a typical CoHo. it was more “adult” than YA, even though the main characters were 21. it was so cute and emotional, and the ending almost had me in tears. it follows Auburn and Owen who meet on a whim, both have A LOT of baggage, and are secretly connected by fate.⁣ ⁣ ONE TRUE LOVES was cute, but not as good as CONFESS. maybe that’s because i was expecting a lot from Taylor Jenkins Reid after DAISY JONES & THE SIX, but it felt overhyped. it followed Emma, who is a widow after a tragic accident but found love again and is engaged to Sam. when her husband turns out to be alive, she’s forced to choose who she wants. the plot idea was different and had me wondering “what would anyone possibly do in this situation!!!!” throughout the book.⁣ ⁣ this weekend, i’m hoping to finish HOME FRONT on audio and dive into MIDNIGHT SUN. i started PLEASE SEE US but i’m not feeling it after 50ish pages, so i think i’m gonna put that one down for now because ya know, still a #moodreader !!
