I’ve spent the day listening to a new podcast I discovered called The babysitters club club so I decided I need to read these. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Š

Renegades was the one thing I really wanted for Christmas, yet here it is, still unread on my TBR shelf πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ

What's your current book buying situation (i.e. are you on a ban or not)? (I'm on a sort of ban. I can buy books, but I'm trying not to as much so I can save money 😊)

After spending a good chunk of yesterday outside at the pool, I'm taking a much needed indoor day πŸ€— Hope you're all having a great weekend!!

Happy first day of Summer!! 🌞
While we've had summer weather here for a bit now, this week is the first real big heat wave (which is super lucky considering how hot June usually is here in Phoenix!! πŸ”₯), so we're having an indoor day! Tomorrow we will swim and sweat πŸ˜‚ .
I used to be all about Winter as a kid but now I love Spring and Summer! I'm one of those always cold people so I need the heat!! 😎
What is your favorite season??
.
.
#grimdragon - Dirty black summer
#rainbowpoplibrary - 🎞️ (it's supposed to be a film roll, I think?? Emojis looks different for Android so I'm always guessing πŸ˜‚ anyway, it's for ANH)

Another photo I've been meaning to post since over a week. These are some of the items that were in my May Once Upon A Dream @thebooklingscrate - I really loved the various bookmarks and the books and lovely coloring prints. 😍 I've been coloring one, but it's not done yet so I'll share it in a few days. 😊
β˜”οΈ
I'm so excited to read all of these books and probably going to start with To Kill A Kingdom since I'm in a fantasy mood after reading suspenseful thrillers all month. Well, just two but it took me longer to finish them so. 😜😜
β˜”οΈ
I've also gotten some bookmail I'm the last few days that I haven't had time to open but soon, that will happen soon too. So many things to do, I'm really not liking adulting all that much.

#WhatImReadingNow - #ToKillAKingdom by @allie_christo!! 😍😍
β˜”οΈ
I'm only about 3-4 chapters in but the first thing I loved right off - the short chapters! The books I've read in the last few weeks (adult romantic suspense) have all had pretty long chapters so I'm glad to be reading some YA fantasy with the shorter chapters again. 😊
β˜”οΈ
It's like I've already given up on this month's challenges. πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ But can't really help it. None of the photos I have stored up match any of the prompts and I have no time or energy to do more photo shoots these days.
Plus I'm stumped for inspiration and well, it's too hot to venture out much. πŸ˜žπŸ™ Seriously fed up with summers - I just want monsoons and winters. πŸ¦„
β˜”οΈ
What's your favorite season of the year? And why?

Hey all! I'm still around, just haven't been posting much. I kinda lost my drive to take photos πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ It's been a blah week so far, I feel so tired and just DONE with everything. My kids are fighting a lot (yay summer!) and everything happening in the US right now just sucks.
I know I need a mental break from it all, but I also don't feel like I have the right to, anyone felt like that?
.
Anyway, I've got this as my current read which doesn't help, I don't super like it πŸ™ˆ The premise is really cool, but the writing is choppy and there is a ton of annoying HS drama (despite all the characters being in college πŸ™„). I'll keep at it though! .
What are you guys currently reading?? .

Hello people! I know, I know, it's been days, probably a week or so, since my last post. πŸ™ˆπŸ˜žπŸ™
I'm sorry, I've just been really busy and when I've not been busy, I've been exhausted.
β˜”οΈ
Anyway, so I just finished #Deadline by #SandraBrown last night and it's taken me almost 24 hours to finally review it here. πŸ™ˆ
One, like I said, I've been busy. And two, because I was slightly confused and needed time to sort through my thoughts.
β˜”οΈ
This was my first Sandra Brown book and while I enjoyed most of it (especially the second half), I did have some issues connecting to the writing and the characters some of the time. This one had a lot of wists and turns and only a few were predictable, some I really didn't see coming and the second half of this book really kept me on pins and needles wanting to know what will happen next.
β˜”οΈ
I'm definitely looking forward to checking out more books by Sandra Brown in the future. 😊
Which other books by her should I try?

Quick post my friends. It has been a very long, emotional but great week. My son graduated from college last Monday and we had his party this past weekend. Now his job search begins.
πŸŽ“
What do you study or would you want to study if you got to go to college? I would love to get a degree in criminal psychology. I love true crime, obsessed with the human mind and want to know why people do what they do.

Hi, bookish people! I haven't posted last night 'coz sleep is knocking on my windows and doors and I happily welcome him after that not thinking about bookstagramming. πŸ™Š So I haven't read this book yet, but I'm looking forward to it. ----------------------------------------------------✨TAG TIME!✨
It's been a while since I do a tag so yeah, here it is! I was tagged by @dessatopia to do the #tbrbooktag so I am tagging some of my tag buddies to do this! Enjoy! ----------------------------------------------------πŸ“–most anticipated read: Sanctum by Madelline Roux πŸ“–been there too long: All The Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater πŸ“–afraid to start: Passion by Lauren Kate πŸ“–bought because of someone: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli πŸ“–need to read ASAP: Paper Towns by John Green

"If there's one thing I learned from the playlist, it's how important listening is to people can be." -Playlist for the Dead, Michelle Falkoff ✨ -------------------------------------------------Good evening, bookstagrammers! Happy Father's Day to all the Papas, Dads, and Tatay out there! How are y'all bookdragons? I love how this book was written and it really taught me a lot of lessons in life. Especially how to be gentle and kind to each other so we can uplift each other's spirit! We should know how to listen and be careful with every words we said, too. By doing that, we can make other's happy and ofc, ourselves, too! -----------------------------------------------------Not related to the picture but I just recently finished A Walk To Remember by Nicholas Sparks and it wrecked my soul! Nicholas never fails me! 😭 It was so so beautiful and definitely a tear-jerker! You should go and check it out. So far the book I love the most from his works was The Notebook. How 'bout you?

I'm in love with you," he said quietly. "Augustus," I said. "I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. "I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you." -The Fault In Our Stars, John Green ✨
--Good evening bookish people! Who loves the book TFIOS like I do? All the feels about Hazel Grace and Augustus! I can't! 😭 John Green always fills my heart with happiness and grief whenever he write his books. This one's my favorite and I am looking forward on reading The Paper Towns so I can read all his works! How 'bout you? What's your favorite John Green's book?

I was so excited when this came in the mail on Tuesday that my roommate’s were laughing at me. But I’m still only a few chapters in , I’ve been busy but I’m also scared of what @sabaatahir will do to my heart with the book. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜³

Excuse the gloomy picture, we're gonna get rain soon!!! We've had dry monsoon seasons the last two years so an early one would be nice (plus then maybe we won't get any 120° days!!). VBS is over, my toe is finally starting to feel better, and it's FRIDAY!! I'm ready to relax 😁😁 Have a great weekend all

Good evening bookish people! Who loves cactus as much as I do?😍 All those thorns around them make them more beautiful! And I hope we apply it to ourselves, too. No matter how flawed we are, no matter how imperfect our bodies can be, we should appreciate it and be happy with it. Featuring my little collection of magnetic bookmarks I loveeeeee them so much! I am planning to collect more magnetic bookmarks than the traditional ones. Also, the shells that I have collected when we were on the beach on my hometown together with my cousins and it's such a fun thing to do! Just lying under the sun and collecting sea shells! 🐚 How about you? What are the particular things you love to collect? πŸ’ž

Me: What?

Me: You are so weird.

SN: you are not the first person to say that.

Me: Am I the first to say that I really like that about you?"

When I was younger, I used to push through bad books. I couldn't stand not finishing one! Now a days, I give books around 100 pages to pull me in and then I give up. I don't DNF a lot, but it does happen. These three are recent owned DNF books that are getting donated πŸ€—

Do you keep books that own but DNF? (NOPE)

Hello all! So I've had like zero energy to post or take pictures and I blame VBS πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰ It's been a lot of fun but draining! Plus I've been staying up way too late watching anime so it's my own fault. I'll be back om schedule...sometime? Lol Hope your week has gone well and you're all staying cool (or warm depending on the hemisphere 😁)

#ReadingUpdate - So the weekend was good reading-wise, better than the last couple weeks anyway. After finishing Veil of Night Saturday night, I immediately picked up #Deadline by #SandraBrown. This one again I'm reading with a group over on Goodreads. Plus it's my first SB book. πŸ€“
β˜”οΈ
I'm only on the 4th chapter so I don't know what's going on with the story yet since I didn't even read the synopsis before diving in - it is a little fuzzy right now but what I do know is that there's a famous reporter who has returned from covering a war and is probably suffering from PTSD and having trouble getting his life back to normal when he gets a lead from a source in the FBI about what could be the biggest story of his career.
β˜”οΈ
There are a few too many characters to track and get to know right now and a little jumping back and forth in flashbacks as there's a bit of courtroom drama so I'm taking it slow.
β˜”οΈ
Anyway, what are you reading today? 😍

"If people could see me the way I see myself- if they could live in my memories-would anyone, anyone love me?" -An Abundance of Katherines, John Green --
Good Evening bookish people! How's your day going? I'm just making sure I make the most of my days left before school will start. That means binge watching movies, K-Dramas, cartoons and ofc, Netflix! I am gladly making progress on my current read which is Heartless and it almost took me three weeks to finish it. πŸ˜ͺ I think I'll finish it this night. Jest and Cath is killing me! Omg. If only Cath didn't look back, things would not be worse than ever and maybe, just maybe, they can avoid their fate. 50 pages more or so and I can finish it finally. I really wish Heartless isn't a stand-alone novel. Huhu. This is why fantasy novels should ALWAYS be a series. Lol. How 'bout you? Have you read Heartless already? Let me know if you already have and gosh we really need to talk. --
✨TAG TIME!✨
I was tagged by @wanderingpages_ to do the #shadesofmagicalbooks and here it is! Tagging my tag buddies! Feel free to do it, tagged or not! πŸ“–Dull London (book that bored you): The Host πŸ™Š πŸ“–Kell (book that holds magic for you): The Night Circus πŸ“–Dead London (book that took over your life): Lord of Shadows!! And I can't wait for Queen of Air and Darkness. Omg. Huhu. πŸ“–Creepy London (book that mades you keep the light on): Asylum, my first ever horror book I've ever read and yeah, I loved it!

"I could hardly believe anyone would read these books.." my Lucius Malfoy funko seems to say πŸ˜‚

Ain't he cute? I'm not really his fans (errr who will?) but his funko made me feel like he is helping me doing everything better. Is it possible? I don't know, perhaps his palm face made me think he is always unsatisfied and thus, made me wanna do better.

I haven't read many books, I don't really get slump but I really am busy. Hopefully things would go much less stressing in the upcoming days. And now I'm catching a cold. Perhaps I really need more rest. And more vitamins 😸

Hopefully you're enjoying whatever book you're currently reading! 😘

I've been kinda off this weekend. I'm nervous as heck for tomorrow, it's my first time volunteering at VBS at our church. I'm already nervous about that, but on top of it I'm still having issues with my feet 😣 Gaaaaah! Today I'm gonna try and rest as much as I can, so wish me luck and shove in an extra prayer for me if you can!! .

Good Evening, book dragons! How's your day going? Me yeah, I'm still doing nothing since it's raining here in PH. Pretty much a blessing (i still hate rains lol) 'cause on Wednesday, school's gonna start!!😩 I am so so so not excited about it. How I wish right now that I am an extrovert so I can handle talks. --
So recently I bought this while I'm on my trip abroad and it's so so cheap compared to it's original price so yeah. Why not?! Lol. Yes, I haven't read the HP series and you can bash me now. Lol. So I won't read this until I found the other books in the series with the same edition and it's so so frustrating 'cause they're so hard to find nowadays. I, unfortunately, only have two HP books, and still, they're mismatched!! Huhu. Andddd I am definitely saving for it. How bout you? How's your book haul going? -- ✨TAG TIME!✨ So I was tagged by @admiringpages to do the #areaderconfession and i'll drop it down now!
πŸ“–Have you ever damage a book? My school books πŸ™Š My classmates told me that it's so ironic 'cause I treat my novels like precious stones while I don't care how my school books will end up. πŸ“–how long does it take you to read a book? The shortest was 4-5 hours while the longest ones would take me a month. πŸ™Š
πŸ“–popular books you didn't think was great? Gentleman's Guide To Vice and Virtue and The Geography of You and Me πŸ™Š Yeah, I don't like them that much. πŸ“–How many books do you own? Only 30-40 books huhu. My Mom won't let me have some without her permission! 😭
πŸ“–Do you like to buddy read? Absolutely, NO.
πŸ“–Do you read better in your head or out loud? In my head. πŸ“–If you were allowed to read one book only, what would it be? I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson.

#ReadingUpdate: I reread #VeilofNight in like less than two days and enjoyed it even more than when I read it a few years ago. 😍😍😍
β˜”οΈ
Veil of Night is a romantic suspense story following Jaclyn Wilde, a wedding planner having the busiest week of her life - 6 weddings in 5 days.
When a 'bridezilla' is murdered at the reception hall, Jaclyn becomes the prime suspect in the investigation due to an altercation with the victim right before the incident.
And who should show up to investigate the murder but Detective Eric Wilder, the man Jaclyn just met a day ago (instant sparks flew) and who seems to be having the worst luck getting a decent cup of coffee ever since he met her. πŸ˜„πŸ˜œπŸ˜
β˜”οΈ
I really appreciated the humor and the characters in this book a lot more this time around. 😍

Day 10
πŸ¦„#bookstagramtogetherjune - #Shelfie
πŸ¦„#decafjune - #ShelfieSunday
β˜”οΈ
My bookshelves are all messed up, the books are just scattered all over the place..and I'm running out of space. Sound familiar? πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ Might have to pull some more books to put on sale, though it was hard enough the first time. πŸ™ˆ
β˜”οΈ
It's just that I like to keep a particular author's or genre's or series' books together..so..sometimes they don't all just fit neatly and when more books come out from the same series or author, they have to be squeezed in between too. Hence, the mess. 😞
β˜”οΈ
But I'm not going to stress out about it this month..I've got a lot to do and what little time I get, I just want to read. All my favorite shows are on hiatus and I'm bored if I don't read. 😞
I did start watching a new show - Amazon Prime just spoils me with all the choices..but I'll talk about it in another post. πŸ™ˆ

πŸ¦„Day 7 - Books on Sea
πŸ¦„Day 8 - Mythology and Folklore
β˜”οΈ
I am dying to read #Circe (got it in my April Masquerade Box from @thebooklingscrate) but I have to hold off on it for a bit as I'm still pretty shaken up from The Song of Achilles and I'm just not ready for another emotional rollercoaster. πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ
β˜”οΈ
I also haven't been getting much time to read lately, and I'm finally starting to appreciate weekends. A lot. 😜
β˜”οΈ
How did you spend your weekend?
β˜”οΈ
PS: I baked a cake. It's all gone now. 😜

Spending some time today with my current read The Gentlemen's Guide to Vice and Virtue and really enjoying it. It is a fun, quick read.

#fearyournoveljune - nautical
#ampersand2018 - cannon and sea
#totallybookedjune - meet the bookstagrammer - Sea edition
1. I cannot swim and have a fear of water
2. I want so badly to be a mermaid but, see number 1 😒
3. My husband is former Navy, heavily tattooed, drinks rum, has a red beard and his motorcycle ride name is Pirate
4. We went on a cruise to Alaska for our honeymoon. Because of the cruise I now suffer from benign positional vertigo. πŸ˜•
5. Last year I had my hair dyed four different colors and got my mermaid hair
☠️
This amazing Pirate's Revenge candle from @spireside smells of musty water, salty sea breeze, cannon smoke and fire.

It's been over 2 years since I read this book and I still get ALL THE FEELS! when I think of it. As someone who is pretty meh about YA contemporary, this book has become an all time favorite (if you haven't read it, do yourself a favor and pick it up!!!)
.
Tell me about a book (or books) that really surprised you!!
.
If you saw my stories, today has been blah at best. I'm gonna put my feet up (literally lol I was just icing them) and try to relax for a while. Hope your Friday is going well and you all have a relaxing weekend!!!!

Soooo I might be a Stranger Things fan πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ I also adore this saying, it's such a motto for me!! I need a big sign of this in my kitchen πŸ˜‚β˜•οΈ

Do you have a show you're anxiously awaiting to come back?? (ST as well as Punisher and SHIELD)
.
Happy Saturday all!! I'm feeling a lot better today than yesterday. My toe isn't as bad (I'm leaning towards a sprain or a bad stub rather than a break) My sister is coming over so we're gonna do crafts and have a good time. I'm sure there will be lots of coffee involved πŸ€—

Day 6 of #bookstagramtogetherjune - A debut author
β˜”οΈ
Update on the weather: it finally rained. Yay! 😍😍
I got #TheAstonishingColorOfAfter by @exrpan in my May Once Upon A Dream Box from @thebooklingscrate and it is absolutely stunning! I've heard amazing things about it and I can't wait to read it! 😍

I feel like I've forgotten how to Bookstagram.. πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ
β˜”οΈ
(Still hoping for rain..it might actually happen today - there's a 40% chance and all)
β˜”οΈ
So here's what I started reading a couple days back - only one chapter a day since I was too tired to read any more, except with the start of the weekend, I glued my eyes to the book and kept reading, stayed up till the wee hours of the morning but read over 200 pages and I'm planning to finish it in a couple hours. πŸ€“
Veil of Night by Linda Howard is a reread for me but it's been a few years since I read it the first time and I'd forgotten a lot of the story. I'm actually enjoying it quite a bit. 😍
β˜”οΈ
Also, I just had to show you this amazing Supernatural inspired bottle by @thebooklingscrate that I've been taking with me everywhere since I got it. πŸ˜„
It keeps the demons away and also reminds me to keep calm and carry on. 😍
If you didn't know, I'm a huge fan of Supernatural and I can't wait for the next season @jensenackles @jaredpadalecki @misha ..😍😍

Good Evening from this side of the world! How's the day going for y'all? It's been raining in here, not a lot, but still makes me worry a lil bit. Huhu. So I just downloader more of like 40 PDFs and I'm SO FREAKING HAPPY OMG. I downloaded them because my Mom won't let me buy many books as much as I want so I'm finding ways how to read my most anticipated reads 'cause I am waaay to late for the 'it' books of 2018. lol. Annnnd right now I am using sticky flags to annotate and I'mmmm enjoying them. I also have 7 magnetic bookmarks now, but yeah I didn't order them fromw any bookish stores but I did make sure the designs are connected to books. How bout you? Do you use traditional bookmarks or magnetic ones? --
✨TAG TIME!✨

πŸ“– If I were an animal I would be: an owl πŸ¦‰. i am more active during the night 'cause I always procrastinate during the day. that's why I often post during night time. πŸ˜‚

Today has flown by! I've enjoyed sleeping in lately (and by that I mean 8-9am πŸ˜‚ #momlife) but I do miss all the extra time I used to have in the mornings. Teenage me would hate how much of a morning person I've become πŸ™ˆ
.
I love a good opening line and this has become a favorite of mine. I didn't love this book (great concept, fun writing, super realistic, but was so dense at times it bored me), but this line is just so perfect.

Favorite fictional spacecraft? (Tie between the Millennium Falcon and Serenity)

I need to take pictures but I'm also so lazy this week 😴 I've been staying up late recently (since everyone in my house knocks out sround 8pm) watching old Anime on Hulu. It's basically the same schedule I had every summer when I was a teen πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ (I'm rewatching Trigun and Cowboy Bebop so far but I also wanna finish some others)

"I'm afraid I can't explain myself, sir. Because I am not myself, you see?" - Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
🌹
Today was an off day for me. I do not suffer from any mental health conditions but I am feeling a bit overwhelmed so I left work early for a mental health break. My son is graduating from college and I am planning a party. I just need to get through the next 10 days! 😲
🌿
I treated myself to fast food, an iced coffee, my husband and I watched Thor Ragnorak, which always makes us laugh and we played a board game. Totally needed to zone out! He takes care of me when I really need it, which isn't often. Anyone else put up a tough front and try to keep things in check for the benefit of others?

Back when my son was a baby I decided to read all the Chronicles of Narnia books (I had only read The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe as a kid) but I lost steam around Book 4. Not cause it was bad, I just have trouble reading so much of the same thing at a time (the same thing happened with Percy Jackson. I only got like half way through the first series before I stopped).
.
Can you catch up on a longer series (4 or more books) all at once or do you have to break it up? .

Good morning from this side! I’ve been MIA for two weeks β€˜cause I went abroad to meet my Mom the first time in 9 years and all the struggles are worth it! The moment I saw my mother, I’m just amazed how comforting it can be and it feels so good. So yeah. I’m back for real! Lol. I only read 1 book during my stay abroad and I didn’t make any progress on my two current reads and school’s so near again. Omg. I am feeling grateful β€˜cause it’ still not dawning on me. Lol. To all the people who keep on tagging me for the last two weeks, thank you so much! Annnnd I am so thankful β€˜cause my followers didn’t decreased. As a matter of fact, it increased and I am so so thankful! I’ll be returning the love this coming days so don’t worry.
Ciao for now!

I want you all to know, I took this pic months ago and had no idea Tony Stark would refer to Doctor Strange as "The Wizard" throughout Infinity War πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ (though, are any of us suprised??)
.
Also! If you guys haven't checked out this book (or Claire North/Catherine Webb in general) you are missing out!!! She is an amazing writer.
.
Do you "get" pseudonyms?? (I don't understand it. Is it so someone can write in another genre without issue of their past works bleeding over? It's really not a big deal to me but that's just me)

Day 3 of #bookstagramtogetherjune - Biggest book...
β˜”οΈ
With 976 pages, Dragonfly In Amber is one huge book on my shelves. πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ I started reading it last year, got about a 100 pages in then out it down and haven't picked it up since. And because of that I haven't been able to continue on with the next two seasons of Outlander.. πŸ™ˆ I need more Jamie and Claire so I need to read this book soon.
β˜”οΈ
I'm hoping to read 2-3 chapters every week and finish it in a couple months.

One book down already this month! I flew through this Kasie West book, despite not loving it. The plot wasn't typical YA but a lot of stuff bugged me (there a no way you'd get physical stuck in a library now a days, and the characters were a little flat to me). BUT I will say I'm biased as I have trouble connecting with YA Contemporary. High School was a time in my life that I didn't enjoy, so it's hard for me to feel anything for the characters overall. Anyone else get that or am I just hella pessimistic and cold hearted? πŸ˜‚
.
If you could get trapped anywhere for the night without repercussions, where would you go? (Possibly the library (but I would actually READ, looking at you Autumn) or Target!!)

Day 2 of #decafjune - LGBT books
β˜”οΈ
I've read 3 out of 4 of these books: one was okay (slightly disappointing), one was good and the other was adorable and heart-breaking. πŸ™ˆ
If you wana know which is which, comment down below with your guesses and let's talk.. 😜
β˜”οΈ
The last one that I haven't read yet is probably going to leave me devastated so I'm not ready for it yet. πŸ™ˆ
β˜”οΈ
One book I have read and adored that isn't in this pic is Simon Vs The Homosapiens' Agenda and that's because I don't have a copy of it...yet. But I'm getting one very soon! 😍
I just saw the movie Love, Simon, a couple days back and it was amazing - I laughed πŸ˜„ and I cried 😭 - and it made me want to read the book all over again.😍

"OK, 3, 2, 1- Let's Jam"
.
This month I'm gonna try my hand at the #fnwreadchallenge by @foxandwit again and I'm actually really excited about my picks so far!!
🍍Book made into a movie - A Little Princess (@fairestskyebooks will be proud of me 😁)
🍍Book that takes place in a library - By Your Side
🍍Book about mental health - Before She Ignites
🍍Book with male character narrator - The 52nd
🍍Book with 2 authors - Good Omens
🍍Book with "Blade" in title (Need to choose, any suggestions? Already read Assassin's Blade)
.
Also, found out this week Hulu has a bunch of anime I used to watch on Adult Swim during the summer in High School (gosh am I dating myself πŸ‘΅) so I'm gonna do some rewatching πŸ™Œ

Happy June!! I'm feeling really good about this month. The weather is warm, kids are out of school, and I'm feeling positive about my future! I've started job hunting!! I'm applying to school districts right now, (some even have library positions!!) so fingers crossed for me. The application process is daunting, I'm technically qualified for these jobs academically, but I also haven't worked since my son was born (8 years 😧) so it's gonna be hard to get a foot in the door. But I will keep my chin up! There is something out there for me!!

Gorgeous blooms and gorgeous book! This is one of the prettiest book covers that I own. My photo does not do it justice! The flowers are all raised and embossed.
🌷
For #ofhappymonths with @wildbonbons and @thereaderswardrobe for the month of May is I love seeing all the flowers, bushes and trees bloom. Spring is always the rebirth of life after winter hibernation. I enjoy the change of every season and watching the landscape change.
🌻
This is the first bloom of our newly planted rhododendron which was specifically selected for its deep, blood red color
.
🌹
Fun fact: the rhododendron is the Washington state flower. Which is weird because it is flowering bush/tree. Regardless, they are gorgeous and come in so many varieties and colors.

Time for a May wrap up! I actually did pretty good this month, not a ton of books but 3 out of the 5 were over 450 pages!
I apparently was also in a Storm the Castle fantasy type of mood 😁😁
.
How many books did you read this month? Was that at, below, or above your average? (This is about normal for me)
.
🌱 ACOFAS - 5/5
🌱 ACOWAR (reread)
🌱 The Royal We - 2/5
🌱 Sky in the Deep - 5/5
🌱 The Grace of Kings - 3/5

This month has had it's ups and downs for reading. Read some amazing stuff and then some not amazing stuff. In fact I'm still not totally sure how I feel about my current read and I'm almost 450 pages in! πŸ˜‚ (Don't you hate when that happens??)
.
What was your favorite read this month?? (It's a tie between this and ACOFAS. Both were so amazing but so different)
.
.
#grimdragon - Book you haven't posted about before (ignore the post I did on this a few days ago πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Maybe I'll change it to book I haven't posted about until this week?? πŸ™ˆ)

Less than 3 days to June and I am so unprepared..πŸ™ˆ Haven't done any of my monthly spreads yet, my bullet journal hasn't even been opened in the last few days..

πŸ‘‘
Anyway, I'm going to try to get ready for June quickly - TBR, challenges, bujo spreads etc. And one book I'm so looking forward to reading in June is #TheQueenofHearts by @kimmerymartin..😍 Love the cover, the spine, the naked hardback..it's a beautiful book. 😍
I'm actually doing a buddy read of this book with Udita @that.curious.girl and I'm very excited! πŸ˜„
I missed doing buddy reads in May - we'll talk about that in another post. πŸ™ˆ

Every once in a while I get the urge to reread Cress, which eventually turns into me needing to read Winter and Wires and Nerve. Which then means I complain that I don't own Stars Above or W&N 2, which makes me want to reread the rest of TLC, etc etc. It's a vicious cycle and totally Thorne's fault (I mean come on right??? 😍)
.
What is a series you could read over and over?? .
.
#grimdragon - *sobbing forever*
#iamsweetmaasmay - Fave party scene (no spoilers but that last story in Stars Above 😭😭)
.
Hope everyone is having a good Monday. I spent the day with my husband and kids checking out books and collectables, it was really nice. It being Memorial Day, I thought a lot about all those who gave their lives while in the armed forces. As a wife to a prior active duty Marine, I thank God everyday for what he and so many others have done for this country, but also that he was able to come home. I hope today was a peaceful day for everyone πŸ’“

Taking advantage of a quick break during our Monopoly game to take this photo and post, while my husband washes my car. I know, I am very lucky lady!
🌞
How is your weather today? Are you spending some time outside to enjoy it? I spent about about an hour earlier reading but had to head in when the sun became to blinding and I had to squint to focus.😎
🌞
#lilgettingtoknowyou - book that made me laugh out loud
#albionmayflowers - lavender - something purple. My tea cup and spoon rest were purchased at a lavender festival last year. My friend and I had so much fun exploring the little town and lavender farms.

We've had a stretch of cooler overnight and morning temps (unusual for this late in May), so I've actually been spending time outside! 😁 Yesterday I took this beauty to the splash pad with my kids, and the flowers were out in full force. I love their pale pink color 😍
.
Speaking of Sky in the Deep, I binged most of it yesterday and it is SO GOOD. 5/5 stars!! I may need to buy a copy for myself, but I am bummed that it is a standalone 😭😭
.
What was your last 5 star read?? .

IG deleted my caption. 😭 Anyway...favorite fictional boyfriend/girlfriend? Mine is Samwise Gamgee from The Lord of the Rings series. He is a brave, selfless friend. Aragorn's description of stouthearted is perfect.
❀️
I was tagged by @bookishbakes for #meetthebookstagrammer and by @love2dazzle for #7readerfacts.
1. I had a 20+year reading slump before starting this account.
2. My husband doesn't understand bookstagram or why I talk to strangers about books.
3. My husband fully supports my reading and buying of books. 😲
4. I have two tattoos dedicated to my husband, our last name is tattooed on my right forearm and "infinity (symbol)+1" on my left wrist.
5. Met my husband on a blind date. We were engaged 3 months later and will celebrate our 14th anniversary in July.
6. My husband is essentially my Samwise Gamgee. We live on a wooded 5 acres in the hills of a small town. He lives to garden and landscape.
7. My husband is a nonreader but I love him anyway.

One of my favorite things about stories is the world building, it's probably why I like Fantasy so much. Give me a new world and a map, and I'm sold!!
.
Opinions on bookish maps: Do you think they should be required for High Fantasy works?? (I do!! It's so much easier to get into a story with a map)

As can be told from their well worn appearance, these two books had the biggest impact on my life. I was in 6th grade when my teacher told me, "You can read anything. You're not limited to books base on your age or grade." I went home and picked up my first Crichton book, Jurassic Park, and realized I COULD read it. That my age or grade didn't matter, I could read what I wanted. It opened the door for me to try so much more than I ever would have.
(And of course East of Eden, my all time favorite book 😍)

Do you have a book that changed your life??

I still haven't read this beautiful book.. πŸ™ˆ But now enough time has passed since I got it that I don't remember much of the synopsis so it might be time to read it. πŸ˜„ (I like jumping into books mostly blind or at least, that's what I've started doing lately. Makes for a better reading experience..) 😍
