Week in Review: June 16

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

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

Week in Review: June 9

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

BookExpo was great but I’m feeling really behind on blog stuff now that I’m getting back to it. I need to buckle down and write some reviews and my recap of BookExpo (not to mention last month’s Harper Collins preview).

Instagram continues to be a fickle mistress. Right when it feels like I’m growing my following I watch my likes plummet. Why must you be like this?

Here are two of my favorite posts I shared on Instagram this week:

What’s the best sequel you’ve read recently? 💎 The Wicked King is definitely one of mine! I read it as soon as I received a very early arc at work. I won’t say much about it yet except that seeing what happens to Jude and Cardan next will be more than worth the wait. 💎 I took this photo of my arc with all my the preorder swag from The Cruel Prince Before #bookexpo. Now I have to put together another photo to feature the mirror I got with a quote from The Wicked King so stay tuned! 💎 #instabooks #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 #hollyblack #thecruelprince #thewickedking

What’s the best inscription an author has left in a signed book for you? 📚📚📚 Alternately what’s your favorite quote from an author? 📚📚📚 I feel like @sarahreesbrennan is infinitely quotable. Whenever she has a NYC signing I try to catch her (even if I have to go alone) and I have the signed books to prove it. 📚📚📚 The ones shown here are some of my favorites. Especially “the dress is the laziest garment.” 📚📚📚 Obviously if you haven’t read Sarah’s books yet you should get on that. You can start with her debut The Demon’s Lexicon (that pensive boy in the center is Nick from the original cover), start her second series with Unspoken, or for a standalone try Tell the Wind and Fire (Tale of Two Cities retelling) or In Other Lands (I still need to read this one too). If you’re already a Sarah fan tell me your favorite book in the comments. 📚📚📚 #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 #signedbooks #sarahreesbrennan #autographs

Week in Review: June 2–I Survived BookExpo 2018

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

Vacation was great but I’m still trying to adjust to being back at work which is why I’m posting this on the 7th and backdating it for the second. BookExpo was a lot of fun and I’ll be posting my recap soon so watch this space!

Here are two of my favorite posts I shared on Instagram this week:

What’s one book series you’ve been following since the beginning? ▪️ One of the series that is nearest and dearest to my heart is @libbabray‘s Diviners. These books blend historical fiction, fantasy elements, and horror to create completely engrossing books about a group of teens living in New York in the 1920s who find themselves (and their mysterious abilities) at the center of a dangerous conspiracy. ▪️ I loved the first two books but have been putting off the third one because I’m sure it’s going to be terrifying and also to have a Diviners book to look forward to until book four exists. ▪️ I love following the cover changes for this series and the art print and tarot cards. So many of my favorite things! ▪️ #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 #horror #libbabray #thediviners

Week in Review May 26: I’m on Vacation!

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

I’m so excited to be on vacation all next week. It’s going to be a little busy because of BookExpo but it will be worth it. I’m excited. Be sure to check out my instagram and twitter for updates from the show floor.

Here are two of my favorite posts I shared on Instagram this week:

Do you ever put off reading a sequel because you’re afraid of how it will end? /// That’s where I’m at with Our Dark Duet. I loved This Savage Song with its vulnerable monsters and monstrous humans but I’m really nervous to see how it all shakes out in the conclusion of this duology. /// I was tagged by @deadtossedwaves to do the #topfivefaves tag: -favorite series: The Winner’s Curse -favorite season: autumn -favorite color: pink! -favorite dessert: tiramisu -favorite flower: hydrangea /// #instabooks #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 #victoriaschwab #ourdarkduet #thissavagesong

What is the one (recently published) book that you think everyone should read? 📚 I feel like The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is that kind of book. Especially based on the number of friends I have who have loved and recommended it to me. 📚 I’ve been meaning to read this one for months and am hoping to get to it next month (for real) and shake myself into reading it by posting this picture. 📚 Now also seems like an appropriate time to do the #fivefemalecharacters I would like to emulate tag (I was tagged by @deadtossedwaves): 1. Luna Lovegood from HP 2. Kestrel from The Winner’s Curse 3. Francesca from Saving Francesca 4. Stargirl from Stargirl and Love, Stargirl 5. I would typically leave an open spot in this kind of top five but why not Jude from The Cruel Prince? 📚 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #taylorjenkinsreid #thesevenhusbandsofevelynhugo

Week in Review: May 19–Furyborn is finally out this week!

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

I am so excited that Furyborn is finally releasing soon! This week I shared my spoiler free review and also a lovely interview with Claire Legrand about the book.

Tomorrow Nicole and I plan to brave the rainy weather to go to the launch party and I’m really looking forward to it.

Happy #mapmonday! I’m so excited for Furyborn’s release this month and especially for the launch party this weekend. ☀️ Since I’ll be reviewing the book and interviewing Claire later this week on my blog, today seemed like the perfect time to feature Furyborn too! ☀️ Only two people are meant to have power over all seven kinds of elemental magic–a prophesied pair of queens. The Sun Queen will bring light and salvation. Her counterpart, the Blood Queen, will summon an age of ruin and destruction. ☀️ Rielle Dardenne’s uncontrolled magic has already cost her dearly so she hides her powers. When her best friend, the crown prince, is attacked by assassins Rielle has to intervene. The kingdom believes Rielle to be one of the queens in the prophecy. But which one? ☀️ One thousand years later, Queen Rielle is remembered as little more than a legend from when magic and angels were thought to be real. Eliana Ferracora doesn't have time for stories. She isn't proud to be a collaborator with the invading forces of the Undying Empire. But her work as a bounty hunter is the only thing keeping her mother and her brother Remy safe. Until her mother disappears. ☀️ To save her Eliana forms a tenuous alliance with a mysterious man called the Wolf and embarks on a dangerous mission traveling across her country to distant shores and the center of a conspiracy closer to Eliana than she can imagine. ☀️ Two queens with the power to save their world or destroy it. Two young women pushed to desperate lengths for what they love. One war that has spanned millennia and demands that both Rielle and Eliana choose a side. ☀️ Is this one on your to read list? Would you be more of a sun queen or a blood queen? ☀️ #instabooks #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 #furyborn #clairelegrand #fantasy

This week I went to a preview at HarperCollins and hope to have my Top Fives ready to share next week. Kevin Henkes was there which was really lovely–he’s just the best. And a librarian I know and follow and whose opinion I value told me she admired and liked my commitment to instagram this year. Which was just wild.

Here are two of my favorite posts I shared on Instagram this week:

What’s your favorite book to movie adaptation? Or which one are you looking forward to? 📚 I’m very excited about To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and The Darkest Minds. Summer can’t come soon enough. 📚 In Now A Major Motion Picture Iris Thorne is dreading the movie adaptation of her grandmother’s Elementia books. Hailed as a feminist response to Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings the Elementia books are seen as classic fantasy and have the diehard fans to prove it. 📚 The movie adaptation is only going to make that work. Iris and her family already had to deal with a crazy fan trying to abduct her younger brother Ryder. She can’t imagine what will happen with a bigger fan base. 📚 Iris hopes that spending the summer in Ireland observing the production with Ryder will give her the perfect chance to sabotage the production. 📚 Iris’s sabotage schemes are thwarted by dreamy leading actor Eamon and the crew’s infectious enthusiasm. Is it possible that the one thing Iris has been dreading is the one thing she’s always needed? 📚 Now a Major Picture is out now so be sure to pick up a copy from your local bookstore or library! 📚 #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 #nowamajormotionpicture #corimccarthy #yalit

What’s your favorite color? 📚 Mine is hot pink! (Yes it has to have the exclamation point.) But I’m also really fond of red and enjoying that my books and accessories are on point with color coordination this week. 📚 I’m currently reading For a Muse of Fire by Heidi Heilig which matches my new Book Beau and Tale as Old as Time bookmark really well. Also of course I had to include a red owl. 📚 For a Muse of Fire is the first book in Heilig’s new trilogy. Jetta and her family are renowned shadow players for their performance with neither stick nor string. But their fame comes with a dangerous secret: Jetta can see souls and bind them to puppets with blood magic. 📚 This old magic is dangerous and forbidden in the wake of La Victoire. It’s also the only chance Jetta and her family have to get to Aquitan where shadow plays are incredibly popular and the Mad King has a spring that can cure his ills and may be able to cure Jetta’s own malheur. 📚 With rebellion brewing Jetta will have to make a deal with a mysterious young smuggler to try and keep her family’s dream alive. The journey to Aquitan will be dangerous and along the way Jetta will have to face shocking truths and impossible choices. 📚 You can add For a Muse of Fire to your to read list now and watch for it in your local bookstore or library this September! 📚 #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 #foramuseoffire #heidiheilig #fantasy

Week in Review: May 12–The Longest Week

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

I’m behind on blog review writing again and this week has just felt endless for some reason (it probably doesn’t help that I’m working today too *cry*).

This week I hit level 35 in Pokemon Go. I tried a new Hybrid Smart Watch from Fossil but it didn’t work as well as I had hoped so I am returning it. I finished Royals by Rachel Hawkins–super fun. And I’m squeezing in Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett before knuckling down to read some review books. It also promises to be super fun so far.

Building my ~brand~ on Instagram and Litsy has been a lot of work. I am debating just deleting Litsy and never going back. Instagram I’m trying to be more zen about but it’s hard.

I think I need to do a big weeding of my TBR piles at home too. It’s getting out of hand (again) and I like to be in better shape before BookExpo. I have been thinking about the books I’m so excited to read that I get to them immediately. And I have realized that maybe *that* needs to the criteria for if a book sits in my bookcase. If I don’t want to read it right away, do I want to read it all? Maybe not. (Thank you to my idol, Marie Kondo who includes similar advice in her book AKA my holy grail The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.)

Speaking of BookExpo, I am going this year again with my bestie Nicole. We are both very excited. Let me know in the comments if I’ll be seeing you there!

Oh and since it’s flower season, I think I might start doing a weekly flower break. Here’s the first one:

Here are two of my favorite posts I shared on Instagram this week:

Do you make time for backlist books?📚 PLACES NO ONE KNOWS by Brenna Yovanoff is one of my favorite releases from a couple of years ago (2016). 📚 Waverly Camdenmar doesn't sleep. She runs instead going as fast and as far as her legs will allow until she can't think and the only option is collapse. Then the sun comes up, she pastes on her best face, and pretends everything is normal. It's easy to hide behind her academic achievements and the popularity her best friend Maribeth so covets. 📚 Marshall Holt is too apathetic to pretend anything is normal in his life or even remotely okay. Neither has been true about his family or his life for quite some time. He doesn't care because he's busy trying to lose himself in the oblivion of drinking too much, smoking too much, and making too many bad decisions. It's been working great so far except for the whole maybe not graduating thing. 📚 Waverly and Marshall are used to watching each other from afar–a little wary and a little hungry–but never anything more. Not until Waverly's attempt at deep relaxation dreams her into Marshall's bedroom and everything changes. 📚 Now when the sun comes up Waverly's carefully ordered world is stifling instead of safe. After years of trying not to feel anything, Marshall is feeling far too much. Waverly and Marshall thought they knew exactly who they were and who they could be. Now neither of them is sure what that means. 📚 📚 #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 #brennayovanoff #placesnooneknows #beyourself

Do you ever read new-to-you classics? 📚 I try to but sometimes they’re hard to fit in when reading starts to feel like a job between reading for work and for the blog. BUT I am making time for this beautiful edition of I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. I was sold from the moment I read Jenny Han’s forward and now that things are Starting To Happen I can’t wait to see what Cassandra will reveal about her family and the castle next. 📚 I was tagged by @deadtossedwaves to do the #unreadtag And share five books from my to read list: 1. Our Dark Duet 2. Now a Major Motion Picture 3. For a Muse of Fire 4. The Queen of Sorrow 5. The Way You Make Me Feel 📚 I was also tagged to do the #last5reads tag: 1. All Summer Long 2. Emergency Contact 3. Votes for Women 4. The Wicked King 5. Be Prepared 📚 Feel free to rage yourself in for either tag (or both!) 📚 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reader #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #icapturethecastle #dodiesmith

Week in Review: May 5–I’m (re)Launching a New Project

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

Since it’s a new month now is a great time to check out my April Reading Tracker too!

If my post title here enticed you, here’s the big announcement:

Nicole and I are relaunching our short story blog. We’re taking May to promote and work out our schedule so stay tuned for new stories, prompts, and more. You can find all of the details and read some of our previous short stories over at Little Women Stories.

Speaking of projects, don’t forget to check my instagram every Monday for a new #bookishMondayMemories post. Maybe you’ll join me?

Here’s last week’s:

Today I’m featuring one of my all time favorite series: Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom series. Set in Ancelstierre (the Old Kingdom) and a world very similar to our our own at the turn of the last century this series concerns itself with the line of Abhorsens—necromancers who use Charter Magic to bind dangerous free magic creatures and keep the Dead from encroaching into the world of the living. 🔔 I am very happy to have the original Dillon covers on the core trilogy (Sabriel, Lirael, Abhorsen) and the sequel novella Across the Wall. Since then Nix has also written a prequel (Clariel) and a final book in the series (Goldenhand). The release of those two books were two of the most exciting moments of my life as a reader. The additional books really flesh out the trilogy and give it the ending it always deserved. 🔔 Have you read this series yet? If not, what are you waiting for? 🔔 My apartment has terrible lighting and it was hard to frame a photo with so many books. Swipe over to see my experiments with cropping and the original unedited shot in my final photo. Do you edit your photos a lot? 🔔 #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 #garthnix #oldkingdom #sabriel

Do you ever go to launch parties or author events? 👑 Being in New York I’m lucky enough to be able to attend quite a few events including last night’s launch for @ladyhawkins’ newest #royalsbook last night at @henribendel. 👑 Hearing more about Hawkins’ writing process and inspiration was great and it was so delightful to meet her. We also got the scoop that Royals is the start of a series and I am here for it! 👑 Swipe over to see some pics from the event including this gorgeous #bookstagram station, cupcakes featuring Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, and a rather atrocious photo booth backdrop pic of me. 👑 While you do that I’ll be checking out the latest gossip in Crown Town and reading more of this charming book. 👑 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #rachelhawkins #henribendel

Do you ever read nonfiction? 📚 I’m trying to read more of it this year and I’m glad one of the books I chose is Votes For Women: American Suffragists and the Battle for the Ballot by Winifred Conkling. 📚 This narrative nonfiction is a thorough history of the women’s suffrage movement in the US from the Seneca Falls convention through to the decision that ratified the nineteenth amendment. 📚 Conkling’s writing is top notch and well researched. The end of the book is filled with endnotes and resources. Conkling also covers some of the uglier moments of the suffrage movement thoughtfully including the ways in which the suffrage movement divided when faced with choosing between votes for women or votes for African American men. 📚 I’m hoping to finish this one today and even knowing the outcome (spoiler: Women get the vote) it’s a bit a of a nail biter. 📚 #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 #nonfiction #feminism #suffrage
