Good morning! It’s a new week so here are my new(ish) reads. I’ve been slowly reading The Islands of Chaldea since Saturday evening and I’m not loving it, though it’s interesting and cute. I also want to read The Language of Thorns, I really want to return to the Grisha universe and since I haven’t read these, this seems a god way to do it. What are you currently reading?

Happy Sunday 💕 Looking back on the week & weekend, I’m very thankful for the people I’m surrounded by every day 🙏🏼These people that I’ve grown a friendship with motivate & inspire me everyday. I’ve seen some friends that I haven’t seen in a year & some that I see often. It was great catching up on life, new developing stories, and about pharmacy. Time is very precious & happy to have spent time with these people before we all go on our separate journeys ♥️ #weekendvibes #friendshipgoals

I actually completely forgot I had this photo 😂😂
Writing Update: My current WIP - Please Find Me has been particularly difficult for me to write as it is quite somber and melancholy in parts - however, a new character is being introduced very soon, which will brighten things up a bit. •
Life update: I’m heading down to the forest to actually film a video 😏and to take a few book pictures! I actually have a really cool photo idea using the Warstorm book which I’m going to buy in a few weeks. 🙊I’m planning to watch an episode of The Rain which I’m really looking forward to 🙊and then finish up my writing for the day once I’ve done my filming and photo shoot 🙈 •
How would you describe your personal aesthetic? •

QOTD : top five star read of all time!

🍒

OMG. This was another five star read for me this year! I believe I’ve come across three total so far (including this one) and I’m excited and hopeful to discover more.

I have my blog all up and running, along with a few reviews from some recent romance reads. I don’t currently have any YA/Teen reviews so far - and to be honest this blog is really dedicated to my heart and soul of romance but I’ll do what I can to give some love to the genre of bookstagram. I also feel like I should give full disclosure that I’m really bad at the whole writing thing LOL, so forgive me for my grammar/outlandish sentence structure/ and questionable spelling. If you guys have any tips tricks or something you want to see in my reviews. Let me know! I’m interested in critique to see this little thing of mine grow. Hopefully I don’t loose the passion to soon, I like talking about books and Instagram is too small of a format to keep everything together haha!

★★★★★
Synopsis ————// #eloisajames
The handsome, rakish heir to a dukedom, Lord Roland Northbridge Wilde—known to his friends as North—left England two years ago, after being jilted by Miss Diana Belgrave. He returns from war to find that he's notorious: polite society has ruled him "too wild to wed."
Diana never meant to tarnish North's reputation, or his heart, but in her rush to save a helpless child, there was no time to consider the consequences of working as a governess in Lindow Castle.
Now everyone has drawn the worst conclusions about the child's father, and Diana is left with bittersweet regret. When North makes it clear that he still wants her for his own, scandal or no, Diana has to fight to keep from losing her heart to the man whom she still has no intention of marrying.

This book title sometimes feels like my parenting life. Luckily, my two-year-old is still honest to the core. I am going to need a lie detector when that changes. 😳
So far, I am really enjoying this read.

Hey Book friends, has anyone read this yet? Trying to decide if I should get my hands on a copy....

Para este domingo decidimos hacer algo distinto y salir a visitar libreros y ver que libro nos recomienda su dueño que debemos leer.

Hoy visitamos el librero del booktuber @bibliotecadelfuturo y les traemos #losjuegosdeender y con esta portada maravillosa de su 30 aniversario, veamos que nos cuenta: "El juego de ender nos pone en la piel del que puede ser la última esperanza de la raza humana contra los temibles insectores que estuvieron Ya dos veces apunto de terminar con nosotros pero no es un típico héroe de acción porque tan solo es un niño el que va a tener que tomar esta responsabilidad sin espacio para comete errores Andrew "Ender" Wiggin tendra esto sobre sus hombros en una historia divertida de principio a fin que también nos pondrá a pensar sobre la guerra y su significado en si". Si quieres saber más puedes visitas su perfil y ver su video en youtube donde reseña el libro.

I have always struggled most to remember to stay present, be in the moment. Regardless of what my current personal goals are, I am fortunate that my place is first as a mother. But sometimes it’s hard to keep that in focus, hard not to fixate on the missed opportunities or imperfections of other endeavors. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With writing, that means that I’m not spending my time traveling to conferences or booking PR events, not throwing myself into marketing and networking campaigns. But it DOES mean focusing on “perfecting my craft” (as my pretty awesome husband reminded me today when I was ready to throw in the towel). It means allowing my spare energy to gravitate toward creativity and the telling of a story, knowing that this path will end up wherever it is meant to go. But for now, at this fleeting stage of life, it is most important that I am present and all-in for these beautiful children with whom I have been so deeply blessed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I’ll just be over here y’all! Writing and sharing when I can, hoping you all come along on this journey with me, and soaking up this #momlife gig!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Xoxo

Thanks to @soraiazohdi for this tag📚💕 What a great way to see what books we love, forgotten and learned to love.
*
*
*
📖A book that you loved before joining Bookstagram: OF MICE AND MEN by John Steinbeck
Thanks to my sophomore English teacher, who made this book such an emotional experience. Those last 10 pages get me every.single.time😭
*
📖A book by an author of a different ethnicity to you: ONE MAN’S BIBLE by Gao Xingjian
Though a work of semi-autobiographical fiction, it’s always interesting to read about the taboo ongoings of common people under an oppressive regime. In this case, Communist China and the Cultural Revolution, where friends can become enemies and enemies can become friends.
*
📖A book you are excited to read by or about a person of color: CHILD OF THE DARK (Quarto de Despejo) by Carolina Maria de Jesus
The diary of a woman living in São Paulo’s penurious favelas in the 1950s. Having been to São Paulo twice, I read this to contrast living conditions and efforts made to shrink this low caste, and was disappointingly surprised by how much has and hasn’t changed.
*
📖A book that you love but rarely see on Bookstagram: NO SURRENDER by Hiroo Onoda
The biographical account by Onoda, the last Japanese WWII holdout. Unaware the war had ended, he continued his rogue fight for THIRTY years in the Philippine jungle. Incredible story of mental and physical fortitude and resilience.
*
📖A book on a genre that you don’t normally read but ended up loving: SCI-FI books
This genre never appealed to me, but the Bookstagram community and accounts, specifically @yuanvillanueva @l.kingley @book.sf @hacktrash @collectiblesciencefiction , convinced me to pick it up.
I’m not crazy about overly futuristic sci-fi, the same way I struggle to immerse myself in high fantasy. I prefer ones that show their age a bit, like with clunky robots and automatons, panels with chunky buttons that click and clack and light up, time-honored rockets that use fuel and are noisy, controls that beep and boop, and so on. Something about that technologically primitive charm makes it more accessible, familiar yet new.

Finishing up this one today, finally. Being sick really screwed up my reading timeline. However, this book is just as incredible as you all promised. I’ll share my full review later this week.

It’s a long weekend, so I’ve still got one more day of relaxation ahead. Are you ready for Monday?

“A villain is just a victim whose story hasn’t been told.” - Chris Colfer

What do you think? Do you agree with Chris’s assessment on villains. After watching the movie, Maleficent, some years ago, I would be inclined to agree. But that might have something to do with Angelina Jolie’s portrayal of the evil fairy. ☺️

So, who’s your favorite villain?

Meet Bounce - my sweet pup! 😁 He may not look impressed by Dread Nation by @justinai (thanks to @harpercollinsus for sending me this #ARC) but trust me, he is!! Almost as excited as he gets for his walks (swipe left to see). I’m excited as well and can’t wait to read more of this (I’ve started the first chapter and am liking it a lot). .

Alpha’s War (Bad Boy Alphas book 7) by Renee Rose & Lee Savino

I. Love. This. Series. I’ve read every book in this series and I have yet to be disappointed. This book even centers around a single mom, and as I always say I don’t read books involving kids. I WILLING MADE AN EXCEPTION FOR THIS BOOK! This writing team and their shifter world that they’ve created is amazing!! I don’t think anyone can top my love for Tank (book 4?) but I love this series as a whole. With every book you get a new standalone adventure that feeds into the over all on going story line. It’s a near perfect series and I’m angry that I have to wait longer for more books lol. BUT there might have been a hint at a bear shifter in this one and let me tell you when or if that happens I will LOSE MY SHIT! Anyway what are you doing if you aren’t reading this? (btw I did read this the day it came out but I schedule my posts for later lol)

Cuddled in bed with this young adult fiction and munching chocolate flavoured almond @asap cereal bar cuz midnight hunger pangs are for real & reading obviously means raiding the fridge and eating whatever you can find ☝🏼
.
#LifeTip Stock your home/ room with cereal bars or like 10 of them cuz Monday keeps coming every week like an unwanted ex and nobody needs that kind of negativity in life.

5/5 ⭐️ Checkout my review of Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo on my blog (link in bio). I LOVED this book so much better than the Grisha trilogy. I highly recommend!

I’m pretty sad that ‘A Shiver of Snow and Sky’ is still on my TBR list, and now that I’ve got my subscription to Fairy Loot and exams on the horizon it’s going to get even longer 😂⠀
Anyone else have this problem!?⠀
