"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ‘Wow! What a Ride!"

So I go to my local ‘big-chain’ bookstore just about (literally) every other day but the employees there, even the manager, act like they never remember me. That wouldn’t be a problem for me if they didn’t treat me like a common criminal.
.
.
I’m African American and I really hope that has nothing to do with it because I’m constantly spending money there. I went in today, I said “hello and how are you” to the manager at the register and she looked me dead in my face and didn’t say a word. I think I need to find a new book home because this is ridiculous. I’m way too dedicated to this book life to get treated this way.😒🙍‍♀️

#currentlyreading AND ABSOLUTELY LOVING! Omg, what an incredible book this is so far. It's got that cozy feeling you get when you read a certain type of epic fantasy (the same feeling I get when I read Harry Potter!). It's perfect for these past rainy days we've been getting in Florida. What's your current read? .

Owlcrate unboxing! Finally got around to taking a picture of all the goodies from @owlcrate’s May box Fight Like a Girl. This is my first box from them and I must say it’s definitely worth the buy! I got not one but two books! A beautiful bath bomb that smells like coconuts, 3 bookish pins and a bookmark! My favorite part of this box is the A Court of Thorns and Roses inspired wall hanging!! 😍

Confessions of a bookstagrammer: Over half the books on my impressive shelves are unread by me. Does that stop me from buying new ones? No.
I'm thinking about reorganizing my shelves based on the books I've read versus the ones I haven't but it's a daunting task to say the least.

Give me some of your #bookstagram confessions😉 I can't be the only crazy person out here.

One month and I’ll be in Australia 🇦🇺

The whole process is stressing me out. I still have to book plane tickets and find where I’ll be staying, but I don’t want to do any of that until I get my Visa which is what is stressing me.

I convinced @mermaid.hearts to buy Six of Crows and she convinced me to get the paperback of Strange the Dreamer. #bookwormproblems 😂 This copy of Strange the Dreamer is so pretty!

Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.

Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.

Reading and dreaming go hand in hand.

📷💬 @grimdark_dad: “Syl alighted on his leg as he sat, whispering the names of the men to himself. She looked encouraged. Bright. Happy. He didn’t feel any of that. He felt grim, tired, and wet. But he wrapped himself in the responsibility he had taken, the responsibility for these men. He held to it like a climber clung to his last handhold as he dangled from a cliff side.”
–Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings

Hey friends! I recently finished The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, the first book in his Stormlight Archive series!! This is the first Sanderson book I’ve read, and the second Sanderson book I’ve posted today! 😄😄 Goddamn...this book is just truly epic!! What a completely thrilling & magical world Sanderson has created here!! I was pulled in right away & although it took me a long time to read this, it never dragged for me in any way. Just the kind of book you think about the whole day, so anxious to get back to & just sit & read for as long as possible! Anyhow, my first solo review in AGES is up on the blog (link in profile) if you wanted to have a look!!

“‘If you want to wear red lipstick and curl your hair, do it. If you want to wear no makeup and shave your head, do it. If you want to clean house and take care of your kids all day, do it. If you want to work full-time and put your kids in daycare, goddammit, do the damn thing. Because that is feminism—the right to live your life however the hell you want regardless of whether or not you have a vagina.’” - ‘Piece of Work’ by @quirkybird (Staci Hart). .

Good Evening Book Babes! Today’s post is all about inspiration! I decided to pick two AHHMAZING women who have inspired me for as long as I’ve had this account! First up is Staci Hart. Honestly, the quote I chose from her most recent release should be enough of a reason as to why she’s an inspiration to me. Her work is powerful, she’s easily an advocate for strong as hell women, and she’s just SUCH a sweethart all around! She’s always there when I need her and she never hesitates to make me smile!. .
💋
My second inspiration is Miss Alyssa from @sweptawaybybooks. When I say she’s been there since the beginning, I mean she was one of the first people I followed here on IG in general. So I’d like to dedicate this picture to her! That’s why I took a pic inspired by her account! Notice how I didn’t copy her pics to a T and I’m easily giving her credit for the layout of this shot. When someone inspires you, you don’t plagiarize their art, you simply recreate it and give credit where it’s due! Alyssa is also SUCH a sweetheart and if you guys aren’t following her, you’re missing out BIG TIME!. .

Current TBR stack. I did it again. I still had 3 library books to go before reading the books I own, but a couple holds came in at the library, and of course I had to check out the shelves. Will not go back until I get through this stack. Well.... until my hold on I’ll Be Gone in the Dark comes in... #libraryaddiction .

I started reading this a few days ago and I've got about 100 pages left. Putting this book down has been a struggle 😭 It's really slow paced, but not in a bad way. One of my favourite books of all times is the classic Arabian Nights, as I grew up with the tales from the book. So naturally I'm predisposed to liking Arabian Nights spinoffs 😂 I have no idea which direction A Thousand Nights is headed in, but I'm excited to find out! No spoilers please 📚 — A

When you wake up sick but still have a long 3 days ahead of you that you literally CANT miss 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻 Guess who is living off tablets for the next few days 😂😭😭

Today id like to know your star sign! what star sign do you belong to and do you believe you fit the characteristics of it?

Im on the cusp between leo and cancer and I do see both leo and cancer. Technically im a leo which is more dominant, compassionate and strong willed but i do see cancer quite a bit which tends to be the more emotional side to me 🦀 🦁 🦀🦁

@litjoycrate has the best Harry Potter Crates! I’ve subscribed to a bunch but I’m sticking with litjoycrate because the quality is absolutely amazing. They really put so much thought and effort into making the boxes absolutely perfect!
I’ve already preordered Year 4 and I’m beyond excited!
The preorders are still open! Get one if you love Harry Potter. You won’t regret it.
My favorite things from this box are the portraits of the Marauders and the Book of Monsters book sleeve!
Not pictured are Buckbeak’s feather and letter from Sirius which are on my wall!
What subscription boxes are your favorite?? #litjoymagicaledition

With the last few weeks of school plus teeball and softball schedules for the girls, May has completely nearly passed me by!
____
But I didn’t want y’all to miss out on this awesome read this month. Based on true historical events, author Lisa Wingate tells the storyof a poor Depression-era family, torn apart, children kidnapped by an adoption agency and sold to wealthy families all over the country.

And you will definitely want to join the discussion with the author in our closed Facebook group on June 1st at 8:30pm ET! Come ask her your questions LIVE. Link to the group in our profile

What was the last book that made you stay up all night reading?
.
.
Mine was Hunting Prince Dracula, partly because it was so good I couldn’t put it down and partly because it creeped me out too much to go to sleep (I get spooked pretty easily 😭). You know a book is good if it makes me stay up late because I wake up earlyyyyy!

Isn't this library reading patio so super fun?! It's like a homeschooler's dream - reading + the outdoors 🌳📚 I'm hoping to spend a lot more time here before the summer heat kicks in.
