I got so much done this week and I felt so terrible for a lot of it. Happy to say after really babying myself this weekend I am feeling MUCH better. This week I read Muse of Nightmares and wow. This one really made the series for me. Watch for it in October.
What are you reading today? ▪️ After I finished The Darkest Legacy j decided to pick up another ARC from BookExpo. ▪️ At first I didn’t even realize how much I liked Strange the Dreamer but I haven’t stopped thinking about it since I read it last year and I’m so excited to see how everything is shaking out in this second volume. ▪️ You can see my ARC copy here with my matching nails and ring and also a new bookmark with a quote from Strange the Dreamer. ▪️ I was tagged by @deadtossedwaves to do the #fiveseriesimthankfulfor tag. Feel free to take yourself in! -The Hunger Games -Six of Crows -The Queen’s Thief -To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before -The Darkest Minds ▪️ #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #lainitaylor #strangethedreamer #museofnightmares
For reasons that are unclear I had a really good week on Instagram and am hoping it continues (but also like I’m holding my breath because it’s such a fickle site). Yesterday was Pokemon Go community day and I finally was able to evolve a Tyranitar and even caught a Shiny Larvitar. Huzzah!
I also made a glorious return to #booksfortrade on Twitter to make some wishes come true for friends. And I think I’m done now. It’s a lot of work, it can be frustrating. And I’m growing weary of feeding the machine that helps people be ridiculous. (Look, I loved Six of Crows too. You don’t need the UK arc. Move on with your life.)
I am going to try something different with listing some older titles for adoption (books for free in exchange for shipping and a review) so if you’re a US blogger be sure to watch the ARC adoption page for an update!
I’m a little overwhelmed by books right now. Like I have four different book piles on my desk at the moment. I had been reading books I was really excited about (The Darkest Legacy, Muse of Nightmares) but now I think I’m going to have to shift back to reading a couple that I just have been putting off and also maybe won’t keep because my owned books are currently at 334(!) and I have learned from experience that I only have room for 290 or less.
Here are two of my favorite posts I shared on Instagram this week:
Do you ever wish you could take a vacation from your entire life? 📷 I have been feeling that a lot this week. I just want everything to stop for a while so I can take a break. But, of course, life doesn’t work that way. Even if I wish It did as much as Summer does in Two Summers. 📷 An unexpected phone call at the airport forces Summer Everett to make a split second decision that will lead to two very different outcomes as Summer's choices play out in parallel worlds. 📷 In one world Summer ignores the phone call and heads to France as planned for what should be a perfect trip. Summer is thrilled with the chance to catch up with her dad and get to see his portrait of her hanging in a fancy gallery–all while enjoying the beautiful French countryside. 📷 In the other world Summer answers the phone and her plans are ruined. No trip to France. No time with Dad. Just three boring months off from school in her same old small town. She has the chance to take a photography class for the first time, but it's hard to think of that as anything but a consolation prize. 📷 Neither outcome is quite what Summer expects. 📷 In France or her home town Summer will find unexpected surprises and growing pains, along with the promise of first love and self-discovery. Each vacation will also bring Summer closer to a shocking secret whose revelation will have lasting repercussions regardless of Summer's initial choice. Some decisions might lead Summer to the same outcomes in both worlds, but it's up to her to decide what shape her life will take from here. 📷 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #twosummers #aimeefriedman #paralleluniverse
Do own multiple editions of a book? ❤️ I really try not to but it’s hard when I get signed arcs and also buy a finished copy. ❤️ One series I’ve made an exception for is Caraval because the UK hardcovers are so pretty. As soon as my UK Legendary came (with The Shattered Crown underneath. Yay!) it was time for a photoshoot. ❤️ I’m currently having a dilemma with Three Dark Crowns. I have a very neat up signed arc and a very new shiny signed paperback now. Do I let go of the arc? Keep both? Decisions! ❤️ I was tagged by @deadtossedwaves to do the #cosybookclub tag: -Favorite Hot Drink: Hot Chocolate -Favorite Reading Snack: I don’t eat and read unless it’s my lunch hour -Favorite Thing to Wear While Reading: Literally don’t care -Favorite Time of Day to Read: Anytime! -Warm and Cozy Book You’d Recommend: Bookishly Ever After by @emberchyld of course! -tagged some people but feel free to tag yourself in too! ❤️ #instabooks #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #owlcrate #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #caraval #legendary #stephaniegarber
