So, I thought it would be fun to share my top five books of the year (so far!) These were all amazing, beautiful books of very different genres. The Hunger is a historical horror, The Armored Saint is a grimdark fantasy with hints of sci-fi, Blood Water Paint is a novel written in verse, Tess of the Road is a good old quest fantasy and Malice of Crows is a alt-history Wild West adventure! 🖤 #bookstagram #bookworm #bookgeek #booknerd #bookaddict #bookporn #bookphotography #ilovebooks #bookish #bibliophile #grimdragon #bookstack

What was the last show you binge watched? (We did a full rewatch of Agents of SHIELD a few weeks back, but new it was probably Punisher)
.
.
The littlest one is sick and I have to watch Temple of Doom for class (jackpot!), so today is shaping up to be an indoors and PJs kinda day. Hope your Tuesdays are going well!! 💓

Day 23 of #bookreadhappyhour - Frying pans... who knew, right? | unconventional weapons
I love this challenge because it gives me a chance to use the frying pan I got Rapunzel to sign at Disney World! 💜 I chose The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo for this one, because Lisbeth definitely uses some unconventional weapons, like a golf club and a nail gun (in addition to all those awesome hacking skills)!

I just finished this and I don't really know what I think of it. It was really well written, but I didn't feel any sense of urgency until right at the end. Maybe I've been spoiled for slower plotted books!

Today I've had some good news & some mediocre news. The good news is #grimdragon is back! Yeah! (That's good news for everyone.) And the mediocre news is that I have to have a foot xray to see if I have a stress fracture. (It's not quite bad news yet...)

So I’ve been wanting to read this book for a long time. He’s been compared to Abercrombie for his writing style and I definitely see why. I’m only about 6 chapters in, but I love the characters and writing style already. Hope this turns out to be a good one.

Happy World Book Day, everyone!
Here's to all the wonderful bookstores, hardworking publishers and amazingly talented writers who make this day special - and here's to uniting in diversity!

Oh, and happy birthday William Shakespeare - I wish we could have lived in the same Era.

Since you guys liked the last rainbow stack I did, here is another one! I couldn't decide whether to keep the background or blur it, but since you guys appreciate landscapes, here you go! That's one of the benefits of traveling - you get to find window views like this from your hotel room!
How're you celebrating today? Any big plans?

Read this in one go yesterday and I can’t say I’m impressed. It could’ve been interesting, but 60 pages in and we were still in the character introductions. That would be fine if the book were longer than 150 pages. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Ah well, they can’t all be winners!!! 🖤 #bookstagram #bookworm #bookgeek #booknerd #bookaddict #bookporn #bookphotography #ilovebooks #bookish #bibliophile #grimdragon

(I said it when #circleofbookishfriends came back, I'll say it again: I returned to Bookstagram at the PERFECT damn time!!!)

This is M O N D A Y, correct?! ZERO complaints here!!! 😂 Hope you're all having a fantastic Monday! And if not ... You did see GrimDragons is back, right? I mean, come ONNN 😉😂

Hey friends!! What’s new? Check it out!! Holly @the_infinite_book_dragon & I are dusting off the #grimdragon challenge for May!! IT’S REALLY HAPPENING!! We had always hoped to keep the door open for some more challenges in the future, and now just felt like the right time. Additionally, there’s been so many friends who have reached out to say they really miss doing the challenge! And of course, we did too!
.
As always, feel free to message either of us with questions about the prompts, or to talk about anything related to buffalo chicken recipes, doughnuts/donuts, or maybe even to share your personal ranking of the Star Wars movies! Have fun with the May challenge!! ⚔️🐲

Guess who's back, back again? Grimdragon's back, tell a friend!

Dudes. DO NOT ADJUST YOUR SCREENS! That's right.. the challenge has been gone for March & April.. but we're baaack!! We've heard from countless people how stopping the challenge has hurt their Bookstagram experience.. which.. oof. I don't think we quite understood how that would feel. We just assumed you all would continue on with another challenge or what not. Ending #grimdragon really impacted our posting, also. Suddenly my skin was not clear, my crops were not thriving, my vision wasn't 20/20, the sun hadn't been shining.. Corey & I missed our little community of weirdos!

The timing just feels right to come back! I mean.. MAY THE FOURTH!! What better time for us to return?! We hope you will join us again with some of our classic prompts, as well as new ones!

As always, please don't hesitate to reach out to Corey @grimdark_dad or myself if you have any questions about any of the prompts. Otherwise nachos, donuts &/or pictures of adorable animals are also welcome!

I totally needed to clean the house yesterday, so of course that meant I had to rearrange my books instead. I flipped around my "read" books and left my unread facing forward. See any that I need to add to my immediate to read shelf? #toberead #12daysofbookstagram

No post yesterday because I was at Elfia/Elf Fantasy Fair. It was a lot of fun! I’ll share photos later ☺️ I heard from other Dutch bookstagrammers YALFest was a lot of fun as well so I really hope these two events won’t be in the same weekend next year...
#geekyglowreadsfantasy - Queen of Hearts or Mad Hatter. Mad Hatter! I actually did a Mad Hatter cosplay at Elfia two years ago. This part of my bookshelf is where the children’s books start, and where I put all my Alice in Wonderland merch. This Mad Hatter mug is broken (there’s a small tear that makes it leak) but still well enough for holding bookmarks ☺️
@chiquireads tagged me to #spellthemonthinbooks so here we go:

Alice in Wonderland
Peter Pan
Ronya the Robber’s Daughter
Inkheart
Lightning Thief, The

Tried to do all children’s books!

I have yet to continue my LOTR re-read and start The Two Towers. Partly because I have a couple other books grabbing my attention at the moment, but mostly because I remember 12 year old me reallllly struggling with (and kind of hating) the first half of the book. But I also remember loving the second half of the book so I need to get going with it!
.
.
Unusually for me, I know the next four books I want to read in the order I want to read them. Normally I'm more of a mood reader. How far in advance do you guys plan your reading?

I'm quickly posting this before I head off to the airport (I always feel so anxious before flying...). Not going to be as active over the next few days but I've taken some photos in advance for here. Will probably post some Paris photos too 😁

Today's #geekyglowreadsfantasy is Queen of Hearts or Mad Hatter. I didn't actually read Alice until last year and was struck by how rude and sassy most of the characters actually are. I kinda love it 😆

I'm glad for tags because they gave me something to talk about or at least take some photos. 😆 I'm missing #grimdragon but to be fair there are other amazing monthly challenges out there, I just lose interest after the first couple of days. I've also consider writing reviews but I can't be bother to do it. 😅 I don't know why!

I get now why people need breaks from bookstagram.

Anyway... That took a very weird turn, so let me get back on track. Nils @nils.reviewsit tagged me to do the #booksandnature and #spellthemonthinbooks booktag so here it is. Finding a book starting with I was quite difficult. But Flanagan came to the rescue, I'll give this series a go one day.😁
.
.
I think Maru @libromente also tagged me for the #currentlyreading booktag and right now I just want to read Bands of Mourning by king Sanderson but I don't have it! 😭 So I get back to reading The Two Towers and I'm enjoying it but I'm just not a fan of Tolkien's writing, I still can connect emotionally to his characters and that bums me out. Also started The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, it's a reread but it's like reading it for the first time. I don't remember much of it.

Damn it I always forget to tag people! 😭

She has finally done it. Robin Hobb has stolen my heart. I’m obsessed. Now, if you’ve been following me for a while you will know that I wasn’t overly impressed with Assassin’s apprentice, the introductory novel to The Fraseer Trilogy. I enjoyed the second novel, Royal Assassin, but I still wasn’t convinced. I kept telling myself to just push through this trilogy and then I could read The Liveship Trader Trilogy; the highly regarded series with apparently amazing female characters. This book, however, this wonderful book, has completely won me over. I can’t put it down, and I don’t know why I feel so differently about this. Hobb’s writing hasn’t changed, and the characters are still the same, but for some reason I’m devouring this book. Perhaps, I read the first two books at the wrong time? Or maybe this book marks the moment Hobb finally came into her own as a writer. Nevertheless, whatever it is, I finally get all the hype.

It’s day eleven of the #Grimdragon February photo challenge: Romance Schmomance: Non-traditional literary couples

The phrase above is from Lan to Nynaeve, but I’m not going to write about them.

What’s less traditional than Rand’s relationships? I don't want to give spoilers because I want everyone to read the series, but if you read The Wheel of Time, you know what I mean. Min predicted it 😏


Es el día once del desafío Grimdragon de febrero: Parejas literarias no tradicionales

La frase de arriba es de Lan para Nynaeve, pero no voy a escribir sobre ellos. ¿Qué es menos tradicional que las relaciones de Rand? No quiero dar spoilers porque quiero que todos lean la saga, pero si leyeron La Rueda del Tiempo, saben a lo que me refiero. Min lo predijo 😏

Hello, friends! Long time no see! I took a little break from posting because I got a new job and started last Monday! ☺️ I also haven't been reading all that much, but I have been reading a little bit here and there of Jardine Libaire's White Fur and of a digital arc of Emily Skrutskie's Hullmetal Girls! What have you been reading?

"Only our memories allow that some people ever existed. That they mattered, or mattered too much." #joerlansdale #thebottoms 📚

Hey friends! Corey @grimdark_dad & I recently finished The Bottoms by Joe R. Lansdale.

It's a haunting, gritty, atmospheric & often brutal murder mystery novel, told through the eyes of a young boy in the South. It felt similar to other coming-of-age novels like Boy's Life & To Kill a Mockingbird in many ways.

This is so much more than just a story about these mysterious murders, however. Ultimately, the deeper focus is on racism & the injustices that people face in the world. It is intense & gritty & bleak as fuck.. but so beautifully told.

Lansdale is an absolutely brilliant writer! Goddamn. He writes such memorable, richly depicted characters. You can't help but fall in love with them!

The full Grimdragons review is up on our blog if you are interested! Link is in my profile!

Rereading the Percy Jackson books with @bookstagram.buddy.reads is a lot of fun! We’re at the second book now and it’s great.
#geekyglowreadsfantasy - Faeries or mermaids. What about Naiads? 🧜🏽‍♀️ (Naiads don’t have fish tails though. I think.)
Keeping this short because I’m going to sleep!

Good evening 🌼

Today's #geekyglowreadsfantasy is Faeries or Mermaids. I feel like there are so many more interpretations of faeries to choose from. And I love Susanna Clarke's faerie folk especially. The quirkier and less human the better 😁

Yesterday evening it was raining and perfect so I sat on the couch and started Circe. I haven’t had much time for reading these past few days (or anything, really) but hopefully that’ll change! 🖤🖤 Today’s #aprillitwrit is one of my favorite things to do: fancast!! I love putting a famous face to my characters! Here we have my fancast for Evlyn and Rook: Imogen Poots and Ben Barnes. I go back and forth on Evlyn but I think I like this look. Ben Barnes is perfect. 🖤🖤 QOTD: do you fancast the books you read? 🖤 #bookstagram #bookworm #bookgeek #booknerd #bookaddict #bookporn #bookphotography #ilovebooks #bookish #bibliophile #grimdragon #amwriting

Tipping the Velvet has been on my TBR for years so I'm really glad I finally got around to this one. It was my first Sarah Waters book and I'll definitely seek out more of her work now. The story was great and even though I didn't really like Nan, there was something about her attitude I just couldn't get on with, the ups and downs of her life kept me interested. Has anyone else read this? What were your thoughts? .

There's a few books I've enjoyed to have #readmorethanonce (thanks for the tag @grimdark_dad ). American Gods, one of my all-time favourites, is one of those. Then there's of course The Hobbit, Harry Potter, Wuthering Heights and The Secret History. Others that I've read more recently for the first time, I'm already fairly sure I'll be revisiting again one day.

So what makes you go back to certain books? Do you reread regularly? Why or why not? And what's your favourite book to reread?

For me, there's a few reasons to reread, at least occasionally. Sometimes it's just nice to go back to a world or characters that I adored.
I also often discover new details that I missed the first time around, or I start seeing things from a new perspective, which can be an interesting experience. Reading the same book at different ages has given me an insight into my changing tastes and how life experience might influence my ideas about certain stories. When I read American Gods for the first time many years ago, I just saw it as an exciting fantasy story, but during last years reread, I found it dealt heavily with emigration and finding one's place in new and strange surroundings.
Of course, I've also reread 'favourites' from years ago, just to realize, I couldn't stand them anymore but I guess that's a risk us rereaders have to take.

Forgot to post again 😅🤦🏽‍♀️
More bookshelf! Gandalf guards my Tolkien section 😌
#geekyglowreadsfantasy - Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings. I like both but in the end I prefer the world of Middle Earth because it’s just a little more pleasant 😅 I guess it also helps that I watched the LOTR movies as a kid and The Hobbit is one of my all-time favourite books. I’m actually cosplaying Merry this Sunday, I’m super excited 😁 It’s gonna be awesome. Do Merry and Pippin have Funko Pops? If so, I need them. Though I need an Éowyn one even more. I don’t think she has one though 🤔

Hello my foxy readers 🦊

I’m still alive I promise. I’ve been so busy with everything that I haven’t found time to take photos or post anything. Hopefully soon I can find time to start back up again.

Here is my current read. I’m not sure if I’ve read this before or not (I’ve read most of her books) so I’m just gonna go along with it and if I have, then we’ll see if it’s worth a re-read.

On a side note, both my cats are preggers. So I’m expecting a lot of kitties... 🙈

Ahhhh Nona!! I love you!!! Grey Sister was even better than Red Sister! I loved it!! These books are basically about young girls going to school to become killer nuns! But the world is awesome! There’s an ice age and a mirror moon and hints about a crazy awesome sci-fi past. Nona is brilliant and interesting and Keot was a great addition! And I love Abbess Glass!!! I can’t wait for Holy Sister!!! 🖤🖤 Today’s #aprillitwrit is: MC’s fashion sense. I’m answering this one for Jaym and Evlyn, who are all about that. Jaym loves tailored suits in trendy colors, bow ties and brass framed glasses and shiny shoes. Evlyn hates dresses and wouldn’t be caught dead in a corset. She likes women’s trousers and waistcoats, all in soft neutrals and blush tones. She’s got a fondness for boots with little brass buttons. 🖤 #bookstagram #bookworm #bookgeek #booknerd #bookaddict #bookporn #bookphotography #ilovebooks #bookish #bibliophile #grimdragon #greysister

Last night my book club met in the park with a picnic and managed to talk about everything but the book we were supposed to be discussing! Maybe we'll do better next time.

Golden Hill is billed as a humourous romp through 18thC New York... I'm not sure if I found it funny but I loved the author's way of looking things, his turns of phrases, and the (two?) twist(s) at the end were so unpredictable!

“I got a train to catch” 🚇

Midnight Meat Train, a popular short story from Barker’s Books of Blood. A personal favorite of mine! It was also made into a movie which is brutal AF! 👌

I recently received this beautiful @darkregionspress , definitive copy of Midnight Meat Train as a gift from two kickass people. @mister_b_gone and @mrs_b_gone who are crazy Barker fans like myself, were kind enough (and most generous) to share their love of Barker with me!!! You two love birds are the bees knees and I can’t thank you enough 🖤

#idgitchallenge = classic horror 🖤

I hope each and every one of you have a super weekend! BIG HuGS and Happy Reading ✌️📖

Today's #geekyglowreadsfantasy is Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones. There is absolutely no competition in my mind - Lord of the Rings all the way. I adore the characters and the story 😁

Earlier this week @xcrini started the tag #underhypedsff and I wanted to join in 😆
.
.
So here's my recommendation! Angelmaker and The Gone-Away World by Nick Harkaway are both standalone books which blur the lines between sci-fi and fantasy. There are impossible weapons and doomsday devices, ninjas, spies, gangsters and mimes. When I want a fun read, I pick these up 😊

Last night I posted my second Camp NaNoWriMo vlog, and for some of my patrons I uploaded a slightly longer version! Links to my youtube channel and Patreon are in my bio.
This photo was taken at Utrecht Central Station the morning I left for Swansea to study there for one semester. That was... a day. 😂 I had to leave very early and of course I couldn’t sleep the night before. I think I had about 4 hours of sleep. I also felt terrible of course because I wasn’t going to see my family for over 4 months. I did sleep some on the train to the airport but not much. Then my flight was delayed... So instead of arriving in the late afternoon I arrived at about nine in the evening. Took a taxi from the station in Swansea, which was kind of scary because I didn’t know where I was going so I couldn’t tell if the taxi was going the right way. I didn’t even know how to pronounce my destination 😂 After picking up my key I had to walk up a hill with a heavy suitcase to reach my flat, then climb some stairs. When I got in I just went to sleep right away. 😪
Studying in Swansea was pretty awesome though. Really want to visit the place again. If you’re a student and studying abroad is an option for you, I definitely recommend it. It’s a relatively easy way to experience living abroad. I learned a lot about myself while I was there.

How many of you have read the Wheel of Time books? I wanna know who else got their start in epic high fantasy series reading with WOT. ⚔️🕯️💧🔥🐲
.
#grimdragon Big Damn Heroes: reluctantly heroic characters - All three ta'varen main characters in this series qualify as reluctant heroes. In fact, they whine about it constantly for quite a number of books!
.
#accioaprilbooks Pack your bags! Favorite fictional land - Randland (sorry, I still use hella old fandom references) has always fascinated me because all of the countries are so different from each other. It would be fun to try and see them all. You know, when there's not a continental war for the ages going on.
.
#aprilbookstagram Feel-Good Reads - WOT will always be one of my favorite series, and a feel-good series in terms of its comfortable familiarity. The characters feel more like friends than fictional people.
.
#ampersandapril17 Original - I am almost positive that this book was my original foray into adult high fantasy novels. Never looked back.
.
#writerslifeigapr Favorite Classic Book - Well, if you're talking classic lit... probably Frankenstein. But I'm going to consider the Wheel of Time books an answer to this too. They really are a classic of the genre now, and my favorite simply for nostalgia's sake.
.
The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again.

I’ve been seeing The Thief of Always a lot on Bookstagram lately! It’s one of my very favorite books, and one of just a pretty small handful that I’ve #readmorethanonce (see also: Jurassic Park, Needful Things, Summer of Night, Star Wars: Aftermath...a few more, maybe...)
.
.
This is also the only Clive Barker book I’ve read 😱😱 (I did read 3/4 of Imajica when I was like 14 or so, but just fucking freaked out & bailed). That’s something that needs fixing at some point!!
.
.
Have a great Thursday, friends!!

Hell yeah, it’s my Friday!!! But I have to get a filling tomorrow.. booo. Today will be awesome though because we should be finding out if my sister is having a boy or a girl!! Yay!!! 😍😍 Today’s #aprillitwrit is: genre you will never write. I think mine is contemporary. I’d like to write fantasy with other genres thrown in: horror, mystery, romance, etc. but I don’t see myself writing anything in the real world. I prefer to make up a setting rather than research one. I suppose I would try urban fantasy, especially if I made up my own city! 🖤 #bookstagram #bookworm #bookgeek #booknerd #bookaddict #bookporn #bookphotography #ilovebooks #bookish #bibliophile #grimdragon

It's a sunny day to talk about anxiety!

My friends at 3 of Cups are publishing these incredible anthologies and the first one is all about anxiety. I eeked this one out as reading it straight through, ironically, made me quite stressed! But I highly recommend it as an exploration into anxiety and daily life.

I did a group read on this one with some awesome people. And I think it actually made the experience better to talk about everything as it developed. We had predictions, critiques, favourite characters and hated characters. It was really fun! So here’s my review:
.
.
Wow. This book blew my mind. I’m so enamoured by everything that McClellan has created in this world. The magic system is just so unique! This is my first forte in to a Flintlock Fantasy novel, and it did not let down at all. .
.
The characters were enthralling, whether it was because of their admirable qualities, or because they were heavily flawed. Their feelings were just relatable. Maybe not in the world context, but in how they reacted to each other. I don’t want to forget the little sprinkles of comic relief here and there that I always enjoy in a good story. .
.
The ending was so greatly done too. It really has me so excited to read the next one. Which I am in May, wooo! For any hardcore fantasy lover, or someone new to the genre, you need to pick this one up!

"Love my way, it's a new road. I follow where my mind goes. Love my way, it's a new road. I follow where my mind goes" #psychedelicfurs #lovemyway 🌌

I haven't stopped thinking about Black Panther since I saw it. I'm going through withdrawals! Is it May yet?!? It was just so fucking brilliant. Killmonger! Shuri! All the badass females! The gut-punchy feels! THAT GORGEOUS CINEMATOGRAPHY!

I'm currently trying to get through Beyond Redemption, so that I can move onto The Heroes. I CAN'T WAIT TO FINALLY READ MORE OF MY BELOVED ABERCROMBIE!! It's not that I'm *not* enjoying Beyond Redemption. I like it, I do. There are some wicked bonkers things happening, but it is a bit dry & my brain has been super unfocused lately! Abercrombie is just the cure for that 😍

Have a great day, friends!

What're your favourite Discworld books? I'm on a big Discworld kick again right now, really enjoying Carpe Jugulum and in next month's tbr I've got two that I've never read before (the fifth elephant and the truth). Plus the collectors library editions are gorgeous 😍

I just finished part 2 of The Exorcist and what can I say, I'm loving it! The story so far has been rather unsettling and the atmosphere of growing dread has culminated in one of the most messed up scenes I've ever read. I can't wait to pick the book up again to find out what happens next! Nothing good, I imagine... .

Thanks @jobis89 for making me pick up this book for your readalong #whatanexcellentbookforareadalong 😈 . I'm sure it'll turn out to be a favourite!

I was ready to post this yesterday, I just wanted to check if I got the tags right. And them I forgot about it 🤦🏽‍♀️
#geekyglowreadsfantasy - Abraxos or Buckbeak. I don’t know Abraxos so it’s Buckbeak by default 🤷🏽‍♀️ This illustration in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is just so beautiful... I would be terrified flying that high, though 😅
I wanted to combine this with some tags. #firstbookthatgotyouintoreading by @literallyreading and #cutelittlebookishtag by @booksofhopeanddreams -
• What book got you into reading?
- I’ve loved reading and being read to ever since I can remember, so I don’t know what the first book that got me into reading is. But Harry Potter was my favourite! These books were the only ones I reread as a child.
• What’s the best book you’ve read recently?
- I’m gonna say... Shadowsong.
• What’s your favourite snack to have while reading?
- Idk, I’m not picky.
• What Hogwarts house are you in?
- Slytherin 🐍
• Why did you start bookstagram?
- My mum introduced me to it!

The Mad Ship was the third book I read in April and I loved it. Thank you so much to @bookplaits, @morethanyabooks, @bookandmoon and @lettuce_read for making me start reading these!

I met a Hobb fan in the wild whilst reading this one; the waitress of a coffee shop that I go to on my days off approached me to tell me that's she wanted to talk to me for ages because I've been reading Hobb books every time I go in 😊 What books have made strangers talk to you? Or have you ever struck up a conversation with someone because you liked the book they were reading?

So each month now I'm trying to share more love for The Wheel of Time series because I feel it is so underrated. The Gathering Storm is book 12, and this one Brandon Sanderson wrote using Robert Jordan's notes. I remember liking this book mainly because the pace picks back up and hots up again after a few previously slow books. I also remember being concerned that Brandon Sanderson wouldn't keep to Jordan's style of writing, or would change events/characters drastically, but luckily I was wrong. I felt Sanderson did a pretty good job.
If you've read this one, what are your thoughts on it?
Also look at my Warg Rider from LotR!! Isn't it gorgeous?! I kinda stole it from a friend... well borrowed it... but I have no intentions of giving it back!! It's my precious! 😳

Couple of days off from here as I can’t get rid of my flu. I have absolutely no energy to think of pictures or take them.
#idgitchallenge - ”Children shouldn’t play with dead things” - character you’d bring back.
Like they say in Braavos all men must die, but if I could, i’d bring Bobby back.
I found this interesting edition of The Gunslinger from my local used book store today. It is not often I find interesting books there.

Today's #geekyglowreadsfantasy is Abraxos or Buckbeak. Have to go with Beaky for this one. Prisoner of Azkaban is still my favourite of the Harry Potter books to this day and I love this cover too 😁

I finished this one the other day and omg was it creepy!!! Told in alternating timelines, two FBI agents interview a young woman that was kidnapped and held with dozens of others in a giant greenhouse called the Butterfly Garden. She tells the agents how she came to be there, her life in the garden and eventually her escape. I really liked it! 🖤 what’s your favorite read of the month (so far)? 🖤 #bookstagram #bookworm #bookgeek #booknerd #bookaddict #bookporn #bookphotography #ilovebooks #bookish #bibliophile #grimdragon #thebutterflygarden #booksandcoffee

It's finally Magnolia time in York 😊🌸
.

Today was my first day off this year where it's been warm enough to read outside. I'm about a third of the way through Under the Pendulum Sun now and loving it, though it might be more suited to an autumn/winter read because it's all gothic and mysterious and foggy. Has anyone else read this?

#sombracorpbookstagramchallenge = King in a strange place: When Roland came over to New York and when Eddie, Susannah and Jake came over to Midworld ❤️

#idgitchallenge = character you’d like to bring back *no spoilers...I don’t know who it is yet but I know their death will be a sad one* 😰

I’m a sucker for a beautiful cover and these Dark Tower books have the raddest cover designs. I especially love this one with Roland looking all like Clint Eastwood 😍
Hope everyone has a great HUMP day. Big hugs and Happy Reading ✌️💋

It's such a beautiful day outside! I'm making plans to go swimming in the ponds at Hampstead Heath, so I hope the weather holds!

#rereadyourshelf I don't think I've ever read this. I got the full Austen collection for my birthday two years ago and I thought I had read my way through them... but I couldn't tell you at all what happens in Persuasion so, maybe, I haven't read it? Ever?

So I went to the library and took out 3 books for this week. Can I finish them? probably not lol. But I will try it anyway. Support your library guys!!! This week has been crazy, I have a lot of shit to do but I still end up here or in facebook. Not even a psychologist can avoid getting caught in this procrastination madness.

I recently won @bookish_bluebird giveaway where I could choose a book of my choice. So I picked Boy’s Life by Robert McCammon because it was the highest on my wishlist and so many of you have loved it! The copies I saw on Amazon were almost all Mass Market Paperbacks where the print is so tiny, it would give me migraines. So this edition was perfect. Thank you Sian.
