Juuuust finished Gemina last night just in time for the Obsidio release! @theanimagusblack and I will be grabbing our copy and meeting the extremely talented @amiekaufmanauthor and @misterkristoff on Friday. We are so stoked and I will be there to help Amy through all the crying. Gemina though....tore me up! Lots of yelling and confusion. Just a normal Monday night. I cannot wait to continue this insane journey.
I also recently finished Nevernight, also had my heart ripped out. Maybe that's Jay's writing style. Just constantly breaking me. These characters are outstanding! Mia, is such a badass! I really enjoy reading about her. I'll have to break open Godsgrave soon. I just am so thrilled to know that the next Mia installment will be around soonish. I may have just accidentally read a spoiler for myself.....crap! @shelbyreads tagged me in the #illuminaefilesbooktag Aiden (favorite AI in books, movies or tv)- Marvin from A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Kady (favorite nerdy character)- Ella from Gemina Ezra (best fake death)- mine is a spoiler.....if you read Gemina, you know who I am talking about. It wasn't just once either. Hanna (favorite pretty but smart character)- Mercy Thompson Nik (favorite witty character)- Nikolai Lanstov from the Grisha Trilogy Hypatia (most violent scene/book)- Nevernight Kerenza (scene where a place was destroyed)- A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy when they destroyed Earth Lollipop song (song that always gets stuck in your head)- Nothing currently, to be honest. Although this makes me think of the Lollipop song from like the 50's.
Hope you survived your Tuesday! It's bedtime for me!

#marchlitwrit day 13: favorite candle to write by. My favorite non-bookish candle to write by is fresh cut flowers from bath and body, especially now that spring is on the horizon. My absolute favorite bookish candle is the hello witchling candle from @lunarbazaarcandles. But I love it too much to burn it . Finally, I love burning my expecto patronum candle from @wickandfable. No one does subtle glitter better than them. What are some of your favorite candles?

Happy Tuesday friends! I just realized this is going to feel like a 3 day week for me I work from home Thursday (yes I’m working but I get to work in my pjs!) and then Friday I took the day off to get a tattoo!
Do you guys have any tattoos bookish or otherwise?
This will be my third, none of them being bookish (yet)
It’s Obsidio release day! I’m not sure if my pre-order will be ready for pick up today as I haven’t had any dispatch notifications yet, but we’ll see. I’m pretty new to the Illuminae files but I was hooked straight away!
