This book is so cute and its illustrations creative and beautiful! 5/5🌟
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! Hope you all have a wonderful day with friends and family! 🥰
Have the house to myself for a little while so immediately turned on my fireplace app (really wish it was a real one 😫) and settling in to continue my current read. 😊
Found this at work today and hand to check it out. Such sweet haikus about dogs that all dog owners will understand. 3/5🌟
Another round of reading in the car while waiting for an appointment. Haven‘t found much time to read lately so I‘m taking any spare time I can get!!
I haven‘t stayed up late to finish a book in ages but this one was so worth the extra cups of coffee consumed during work this morning. Ninth House is the perfect October read to bring in the spookiness of Halloween! Leigh really brought New Haven and Yale to life in a new and incredible way and created such amazing characters to compliment such a strange and wonderful world. 5/5🌟
After binging Downton Abbey for the first time & then going to see the movie I was so excited to hear there were books! This book didn‘t disappoint in giving a more in depth view to the real family who lived in the castle. The only thing I wish was different was a little bit more information on the lives of the servants downstairs. All in all it was really good & gave a better view into the life of the Carnarvon‘s. 4/5🌟
Getting to know a different side of Hopper before he returns to Hawkins & before all the crazy of the Upside Down begins was incredible. Hopper holds a special place in my heart & the author does a really good job of keeping true to Hoppers character & who he is as a cop & person. The murder mystery was well done & kept up suspense & intrigue through the entire book! 4/5🌟
Does anyone else read to their pets? I‘m really hoping I‘m not the only one 🤣 this was the cutest book and even though my dog left halfway though, I really liked it! 5/5🌟
This sequel to Marlo was just as cute (if not cuter) than the first book! Marlo is back but this time with dinosaurs adventuring in a new world of Marlo‘s making. Had its own version of I Spy to find Marlo‘s friends hidden on each scene thats beautifully created. 5/5🌟
I really tried to like this but 50 pages in and I couldn‘t do it. I don‘t know if its because I‘m not in the right mood for this kind of book (even though I JUST finished a murder mystery before picking this book up) or because of the writing or plot. But either way, it hurts my heart to DNF this one but I fear I may push myself into another reading slump if I try to force myself to continue.... 🙈
Another amazing story to continue Kendras journey. Have to admit that I sort of saw the ending coming, but there was one plot twist at the end that sent me reeling! I honestly never want this series to end, its so incredibly detailed and twisty that it makes it so enjoyable. I need the next book ASAP! 5/5🌟
This was amazing from start to finish! It brings books to life in a new way that you can immediately connect to and fall in love with this incredible world Rogerson created and her characters were so well written as well. I felt and immediate connection to Elisabeth and how she loves and respects books and libraries. And not to mention there are warrior librarians in this one! 5/5🌟
I‘ve been a fan of Katie Heaney‘s since her first book came out and related to it so much. And now that Would You Rather is basically a continuation to that book I loved it just as much. 4/5🌟
My very loved copy of this book has been my companion the last few days as I tried to break my impossibly long block. This year has been full of twists & turns & the reading block has been real but I turned to an old friend to help. Loved this book just as much as the first time I read it all those years ago. 5/5🌟
Its certainly been a whirlwind week! I had applied to work at my library in September and didn‘t get the job, but then last week I got a phone call asking if I was still interested in the position & scheduled an interview for this Monday. Well, I just got the call back less than 24 hours after & they offered me the position!! I am on cloud nine right now that I get to have my dream job & had to share the news with my fellow booklovers right away!!
Is it horrible to say I liked the TV show better? I know its a rare instance when you think the movie/show is better than the actual book, but in this case it happened. I‘m not saying the comics were bad but there didn‘t seem like a lot of questions were answered; especially in the first volume. But its a really creative idea and the art was great so I‘m looking forward to how the story continues in vol 3. Vol 1: 3/5🌟 Vol 2: 4/5🌟
Going out of town for the weekend so stopped at the library to stock up on books and movies!!
I loved everything in this that involved books but the romance? Not so much. I found myself really relating to Nina in the beginning and found her inspiring as she took her leap of faith and left everything that was comfortable and easy behind. Then the romance came in and I found myself getting more and more disinterested. All in all give it a 3/5 🌟
An amazing companion to Moonlight Over Paris which tied up loose ends for another character and brought her the answers she so desperately wanted. Daisy‘s journey was another well written one and getting to know her better was well worth making this ebook an impulse buy. I was grinning from ear to ear during many parts of this book! 4/5🌟
My first historical fiction in what seems like forever and it was a great book to get me back into the genre. I related a lot to Helena and getting to see her journey to become her own woman was written so well. Not to mention Sam! Where can I find my own Sam!! 😍 4/5🌟
1. Priory of the Orange Tree or A Curse So Dark and Lonely!!
2. Probably Siege and Storm. The only reason I rated it high was because of Nikolai
3. Sarah J Maas‘ & Leigh Bardugo‘s new books! 🙌
4. Yes I set myself for 50 books but only at 11 right now 😫
5. @Areader2 @HOTPock3tt 😊
Trying something new in June by making myself a TBR pile! I have never actually completed one before and either get distracted by other books or intimidated by how big it is 😱 so fingers crossed that I can finish it 🤞🏻 first up is Moonlight Over Paris 😍
Another amazing book to the Ravenspire series! One of the best fairytale retellings yet with just enough originality to stand out among the rest. Blue is such a fierce and determined character and her relationship with the rest of the characters are so complex and wonderful! 5/5🌟
This book was my Everest and my most anticipated book of the year and it did not disappoint at all. It took me a hot second to finish but with how many details and characters that were in this book it made reading it over the span of two months (while also battling a reading slump) worth it! 5/5🌟
Thanks for the tag @Areader2
1. Cancer ♋️
2. That my aunt and uncle were recently in town & my uncle did a one man play at my church last weekend!
3. A Breath of Snow and Ashes.
4. We are celebrating my mom and aunts birthday the whole day!! 🥳
5. @Rothereader @oh_mybook @ReadingOverSleeping 🙌
Finally starting my most anticipated read of the year! I‘ve heard nothing but amazing things about it and I‘m so excited to jump in and discover this new world.
This book jumped up to become on of my favorite retellings! It was unique enough to stand out from the others but had plenty similarities to the original story that I always remembered what I was reading. 4/5🌟
This book was amazing start to finish. Not only were the new character pov‘s done extremely well but the humor and action scenes incredible too! I found my love for Nikolai only grew and my respect for Nina and Zoya too. And after that ending, I need the next book now!! 5/5🌟
Going back to Ketterdam was just as amazing as the first and now finally getting to start King of Scars and return to Ravka and my favorite Privateer! 😍
Latest haul of bookish things 🙌 got the book on my trip to Chicago and when I got home these two bookmarks were waiting for me in the mail!
Went to Chicago for the weekend and while it was all amazing, the best part had to be discovering this little book store and meeting sweet Ramona the resident doggo and spending most of the time cuddling her 😊
