I really loved the sweet, innocent romance in The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy. For something more recent there's I Owe You One by Sophie Kinsella! #FlatshareAndShareAlike

💜 When I was very young my best friend called me Peaches since I liked peaches so much. My family has been calling me Michi for a long time as well.
💜 Hmmm... Bread? I also like a really good salad. Soup is good too (idk I'm not too in to appetizers).
💜 I think we're going to see Spiderman: Far From Home.

Kitchen | Banana Yoshimoto

My latest book haul(s). I was so happy to find most of these books at my library‘s used book store. Man and His Symbols was even free since it had been written in with pen! All of these books are recommendations (by title or author) by members of BTS except for The Secret History and Musicophilia. I‘m getting into some new genres and it‘s really fun! Currently I‘m reading Kitchen, such an interesting read. #bts #bookhaul #magicshop #jung

I‘m a bit torn about this one. I thought it was pretty good, one of the better Classics I‘ve read, but would I have liked it if I wasn‘t looking for connections and symbolism to BTS? Maybe, maybe not. Thank goodness I didn‘t have to read when I was in school though. #demian #bts #bloodsweatandtears #hetoowasatempter

I hate it when comments like this take me out of the story. Yes, tightlacing was popular during the time period of this story but it's not like it was the norm for everyone. If you've got a small chest you can make do with a camisole under your clothes and your back will be fine but trust me, not all of us have that luxury. I just don't like this notion that corsets = oppression. #agreatandterriblebeauty #libbabray #corset #fashion #victorian

Starting this one again since I noped out of the audiobook after like 5 minutes. Some people need to realize that character voices are not a necessary part of the experience. #marieantoinetteserialkiller #marieantoinette #katiealender #bookstagram #blue #audiobook #chapter1

The Twilight Prisoner | Katherine Marsh

This one was as good as the first one. I (secretly) read most of this at work so I wish I had been paying attention more so I would have something else to say. A cute, short read. The ending made me melt. I really hope Katherine Marsh is working on another one because I NEED to see my ship finally sail.

The Glass Casket | McCormick Templeman
Mehso-so

So much build up for a confusingly jumbled ending. I originally thought this was going to be a retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and there are those elements, but it's closer to Snow White and Rose Red (two different stories about two different girls named Snow White...) I liked the world but not enough time was spent explaining the lore. The romance was rushed, I thought. The chemistry was barely building as the story ended.

I apologize for being MIA this month. Rehearsals for Dido and Aeneas have been INSANE! I play a witch and a lady of the night and I‘m having so much fun! The costuming and staging we‘re doing is so unique. Steampunk is awesome. When I took this picture I had already removed my zip off sleeves(!) but I can assure you they‘re so cool and flowy!! Also, my lips are like that for the whole show, not just for the prostitute scene. #didoandaeneas

Sanctum by Madeleine Roux. Trashy YA? Yes (in the sense that the writing isn't Pulitzer Prize level and the story might not be completely air tight). Fun, creepy read? Also yes.

We had the luck, if you can call it that, Of having been in love but never lovers... - The Apple Orchard by Dana Gioia. Tonight I attended a recital of music by Lori Laitman. Each of the songs were poems that she set to music; the poets included Emily Dickinson, Sara Teasdale, Margaret Atwood, and the writer of this poem, Dana Gioia. I adore this line. #danagioia #artsong #poetry #theappleorchard #music #bookstagram

The Caged Graves | Dianne K. Salerni

I am so happy to finally own this book! It‘s a used library book I got from AbeBooks. It is a shame that it‘s now out of circulation at that particular library but the book is in such great condition (the stickers were easy to peel off of the plastic library cover) and it was less than $4. Also this is one of my favorite books. #thecagedgraves #dianneksalerni #bookstagram #northerngothic #usedbooks #library #own #favorites #abebooks

I really wish my local library's website was more user friendly. It constantly logs you out and there's no way to search by genre. They have "booklists" that are sorted by genre but each only has around 20 books listed...

I was reading on the bus yesterday when I spotted a kindred spirit. He‘s reading Life in a Jar by Jack Mayer. I think I'm going to try to take note of the books I notice people reading out in public. It might be a fun way to find books I wouldn't normally look for. I probably won't take a photo every time. I promise I'm not a creeper. #bookstagram #vintage #northerngothic #thenighttourist #katherinemarsh #orpheusandeurydice #lifeinajar
