My puppy is just so beautiful 😍😍😍 Ember is such a good puppy. She loves mummy's craft/library room and she's such a good girl when she's in there. She makes everything seem so much better.... I love being a pup mum so so much ❤️❤️❤️
I'm going to be renovating my room again so my @therealsjmaas wall be migrating to another wall in order to make space for my wall of books again!👻☠💀🎃 I wanted to take a quick picture of it before it changes lol
Halfway through the week people, we can do this! I went home for lunch and snuggled with my cat when I really should've been trying to take more photos for bookstagram. Every time I get the chance it's dark out and the lighting just isn't cooperating with me. Also, does anyone else struggle with themes? For some reason I'm having a really hard time taking even simple photos. They just don't want to work for me. Maybe it's because it's getting closer to the wedding and I'm focusing on that more? I don't know. All I know is, having photos turn out the way I'm seeing them in my head is difficult😂
On the plus side, only a couple weeks until my 1 year "bookstagramiversary" and I'm so excited! I will most likely be combining my 1k giveaway into that and possibly will have 2 prizes depending on finances. But I did receive some mail yesterday that I'll unbox tonight...and I may or may not give you guys a little sneak peek at some of the giveaway prizes! Some of the prizes will be from @markedbymary @readandwonder_ and @littleinklingsdesign To name only a few. Also, thanks for being patient while I'm waiting for everything to arrive. I don't want to host the giveaway until I have everything ready to go💕

What bookish things do you collect?
A few weeks ago I finished #Caraval by #StephanieGarber and liked it a lot! 🙌🏼 It was a really nice book even though it had little to do with what I was expecting 😅 Please don't expect a Circus like everyone does, it's pretty different from that (at least according to my opinion). The plot is great but it sadly lacks a few things.
Rating: 4/5⭐️ I recommend it! Have you read it? •
Hace unas semanas leí Caraval de Stephanie Garber y me gustó mucho 🙌🏼 Estuvo muy bueno aunque bastante diferente a lo que me esperaba. No tiene mucho que ver con el circo como la sinopsis aparenta así que no entren buscando eso 😅 El plot es muy intrigante y constantemente querés saber más pero aún así le faltaron un par de cositas para mi gusto. La escritura no me pareció muy buena porque constantemente sentía que la autora se rebuscaba mucho al hablar pero no es nada que me haya molestado al punto de ser insoportable.
Lo recomiendo 👌🏼 ¿Ya lo leyeron? Cuéntenme qué les pareció 💜
Hey humanes! Here is our new (not THAT different) theme. Hope ye all liketh it.

#ARC#giveaway 💜I'm so excited about this #book , the wait for August 10th is slowing killing me. So, I'm going to give some ARCs away. If you've read and reviewed my debut novel, In This Moment, comment on this post for a chance to win. If you haven't read In This Moment, it's #onsale for only .99 cents & the giveaway will remain open until August 1st. 💜💜💜Crushed💜💜💜 "It’s not the moment that defines you, it’s the choices you make in reaction to it.”
One smile. One bus ride. One conversation. The beginning of everything.
Julianna has never wanted anyone more than she’s wanted Eric, but sometimes, life doesn’t pan out quite how you expect. The past ten years have been defined by the worst night of her life. Blinded by the weight of her pain, she dropped out of college to marry the wrong guy and moved hundreds of miles away from her hometown. But her unsuccessful attempt to run away from her demons only lands her right back on the starting line.
Feeling lost and alone, Julianna must face the ghosts that haunt her and the people she left behind.
One crush. One wrong move. One bad decision. The end of the beginning.
For Eric, it’s always been Julianna, even though she’s never been his. She’s owned his heart and broken it all in the same breath. After a series of poor choices caused him to hit rock bottom, Eric’s life is finally on the right track—until Julianna walks back into town. He hasn’t spoken to her since she left, thinking he’d never see her again, and his resolve is crumbling.
He knows he should keep his distance—she could shatter his world—but he can’t walk away from her.
Will Julianna and Eric finally get their happily ever after, or will the secrets they keep and the shadows of their past leave them Crushed?💜💜💜#authorsofinstagram#bookstagram#bookworm#bookish#booklover#booksale
I have a partner who's obsessed with Harry Potter, he got a tattoo «dark mark». One day teacher made a surprise exam and my partner get up saying: “My lord is calling me”. He ran out of the class and never came back. 😂 I love this.
How often do you buy books based on the cover before even really looking at what it's about? I mean, you know the old saying, but this is bookstagram, and taking pretty pictures of pretty books is the thing we do. 😘
That being said, When It's Real sounds super cute! A wildchild superstar has to make himself appear more responsible to the paparazzi before he destroys his own career, and in order to do so, he hires a plain Jane to be his stable and supportive girlfriend to show the public how mature he really is. It's the perfect recipe for disaster, and maybe an accidental romance!
So this is day three of the booktubeathon instagram challenges I found this challenge really difficult and this was the only photo I remotely liked to I'm sorry 😬 I'm currently reading Harry Potter and the philosophers stone for booktubeathon and am really enjoying re reading it it's such a fabulous series and I love all the characters especially hermione granger she has to be my favourite! Have you read this series? Which is your favourite character? ✨
"You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me." - C.S. Lewis
Truer words couldn't be said about me. Just give this girl some tea and book and I'm good to go!
This week my husband has been pretty sick with a cold so naturally, it's quickly spread to me (UGH.) So, I'm prepping orders today with a big fluffy blanket, my favorite candle burning, the BEST instrumental music playing and a giant cup of peppermint tea.
E ai, amores. Minha primeira resenha vai ser de The Beauty of Darkness, terceiro e último livros da trilogia Crônicas de Amor e Ódio, da autora Mary E. Pearson.
Esse é o fim da jornada da Lia. Ela fugiu de Venda, embora estando muito ferida, e anseia por voltar a Morrighan e alertar o reino de uma possível batalha contra o Komizar. Enquanto Rafe a deseja em Dalbreck, Lia divide seu amor por dois outros reinos: Morrighan e Venda. E isso será um obstáculo muito grande no relacionamento deles. Ela se reencontra com Kaden, e ele busca pela confiança dela, de Rafe e dos soldados que os ajudaram na fuga.
👸🏻 Quem já leu sabe que a Lia é poderosa. Ela não desiste das suas escolhas, é corajosa, destemida e não liga pra o que vão falar dela. Ela me cativou desde o princípio. Foi o primeiro livro que eu li sobre custumes medievais, e sabemos que naquela época as mulheres eram vistas como boas esposas, boas filhas, respeitando o protocolo e falando apenas quando solicitado. Mas a Lia mostra que a mulher é poderosa sim. A mulher pode ser um soldado. A mulher pode tomar suas próprias decisões e ser quem quiser. A Lia é inspiradora.
💜 E o romance que existe entre ela o Rafe é leve e picante. E o amor entre eles é verdadeiro e real. Eles tinham obrigações para com os seus próprios reinos mas isso não fez com que eles parassem de se amar.
🗡 E o Kaden? Confesso que shippei. O Kaden é um amor, e é fiel a Lia. Ele tenta conquistar a confiança de todos. E luta ao lado da esperança na batalha.
🌸 A Lia se reencontra com a Pauline e uma das partes mais emocionantes foi o parto. Foi lindo. Esse livro é cheio de outros reencontros que me deixaram bem comovida.
📖 Trilogia maravilhosa, um pouco cansativa e detalhista. Mas não faz mal. @darksidebooks arrasou com os livros, como sempre.
Day 26th #whisperingrexdsjuly is ditch that jacket,
and tell me that Heartless without the book jacket is not freaking gorgeous😍😱❤️
Honestly the majority of my Heartless pics are with food because like Cath I'm all about that baked good life😅😋
I finished my 3rd book of the week!! I finished The Girl Who Survived which was less than 100 pages my shorter books are kinda boring/not peaking my interests so I'm moving books around and switching things up! #booktubeathon
