After a manic 4-day week of BEA parties squashed between two weddings, this week now feels soooooo long and all hazy/dreamlike. Like, I swear I thought yesterday was Friday but it was only Tuesday. Also it seems like maybe 800 or 900 books published yesterday? Maybe all the books ever? Like my entire year’s worth of reading in a day? I think I’m having a midsummer night’s dream. But if it really IS Wednesday morning, then good morning and happy Wednesday!

QOTD: What’s your favorite fairy tale?
.
I love Cinderella! I love “rag to riches” stories. But I also love Mulan and Beauty and the Beast and so many others.
--
A family friend came over today. And like everytime we have guests over, we spent three hours before her arrival shoving the mess that is our house into various rooms and closets. That’s how we “clean”. 😅

Evening everyone! Hope your day has gone well and that you're having a relaxing weekend ☁️ 😴 .
Day 2 of #bookstagramtogetherJune : Black and White Spines .
I had fun taking this one, even though getting the flowers at the right angle was a bit precarious as didn't want the vase to tip and water damage the books 🙀
.
The black and the white always looks good together and really enjoyed this theme of the day ◾️◽️◾️◽️

Good morning favorites!
.
Do you enjoy fairytale retellings? I'm always on the hunt to add more of them to my collection! If you haven't picked up these yet, I highly recommend you do!
.
Spindle Fire synopsis:
.
A kingdom burns. A princess sleeps. This is no fairy tale.

It all started with the burning of the spindles.

No.

It all started with a curse…

Half sisters Isabelle and Aurora are polar opposites: Isabelle is the king’s headstrong illegitimate daughter, whose sight was tithed by faeries; Aurora, beautiful and sheltered, was tithed her sense of touch and her voice on the same day. Despite their differences, the sisters have always been extremely close.

And then everything changes, with a single drop of Aurora’s blood—and a sleep so deep it cannot be broken.

As the faerie queen and her army of Vultures prepare to march, Isabelle must race to find a prince who can awaken her sister with the kiss of true love and seal their two kingdoms in an alliance against the queen.

Isabelle crosses land and sea; unearthly, thorny vines rise up the palace walls; and whispers of revolt travel in the ashes on the wind. The kingdom falls to ruin under layers of snow. Meanwhile, Aurora wakes up in a strange and enchanted world, where a mysterious hunter may be the secret to her escape…or the reason for her to stay.
.
.
That's all I've got for today, my youngest graduates Kindergarten in a few hours and I'm so excited (and slightly sad because STOP GROWING) to go watch his final program of the year. Happy reading!

Do you love retellings? 💕
.
.
There are so many amazing retellings of some of my favourite fairytales out there at the moment, and I’d like to share one of my favourites with you! 🌺
.
.
Spindle Fire and its sequel Winter Glass by @proofoflex are a delicious mix of Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and all things fae. The writing is beautiful, the characters are relatable and the whole world is enthralling. ❤️
.
.
If you like SJ Maas and fairytales, this duology is for you! 🎉
.
.
Plus, look how pretty they are! 😍

When your 4yo daughter is begging to go to @thebookcon & you already have #VIP tickets for the weekend, it's great to know your local #indiebookstore will hook you up! Get over to @astoriabookshop if you need a #bookcon ticket! Free with the purchase of a BookCon author book! I already owned everything that had the tag except #Furthermore by #taherehmafi & Caraval, and Furthermore won because of @mynameismarines :) Also couldn't resist a signed copy of #WinterGlass by #lexahillyer Has anyone read this? Looks like a Sleeping Beauty retelling 😀

" A curse comes undone. A kingdom shatters. But some bonds can’t be broken."
.
Last week we shared an amazing guest post from author Lexa Hillyer about Winter Glass (sequel to Spindle Fire) & writing YA fantasy on YABC! 🏰✨ A direct link to this post can be found in the Linktree in our bio! 📚 .
Have you read Winter Glass? (We absolutely loved this duology's epic finale 😭💙)
.
.
📚About the Book📚
.
.
Fans of Kendare Blake and Marissa Meyer will rejoice as Lexa Hillyer returns to a lush fantasy world in deep peril, concluding the dark and stunning fairy tale reinvention that began with Spindle Fire.

Aurora, torn from the dream world and Heath, plots to assassinate the faerie queen Malfleur, only to confront temptations she never expected. Isabelle, meanwhile, opens her heart to Prince William as they attempt to unite their kingdoms and wage a winning war against Malfleur’s army of Vultures.
But when the appearance of an unbreakable glass slipper prompts Isabelle to discover more about her lineage, her true identity begins to take shape and her legacy becomes as clear as ice. Devoted half sisters Isabelle and Aurora will grapple with their understanding of love and loyalty as they face a threat even greater than that of the evil queen—the threat of losing each other forever.

Last night’s event rocked! We discussed character, plot, world-building, the essential process of questioning your society’s foundational myths, our own publishing journeys, and, of course, our love of wine, which I invented.
Thank you for having us, @astoriabookshop ! 🍷🍷📚👏.

Day 12 of #fangirlinginMay : White Books .
Here are a few of my white books or white-ish books. Quite like how this turned out. Makes a change from all the dark coloured spines that I have. Also says something about what colours I'm attracted to when buying a book- and the colours they know will sell 🤣🤣

Oops! I forgot to post my review of #winterglass 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 I loved this book just as much as #spindlefire the writing is absolutely gorgeous and just feels magical to read and continues the story on perfectly.
This follows on from where spindle fire finished and I think perfectly concludes the story, whilst tying up some mysteries which were introduced in the first book, and creating some new storylines as well.
I feel like this duology has been a perfect retelling/twist on sleeping beauty, and we get a few nods to other fairytales in this book.
Overall I think this is 4.5 out of 5 stars for me. If you love sleeping beauty, retellings, or anything magical and involving fairies then you need to read these books! #bookworm #bookreview #lexahillyer #fantasy #fairytale #sleepingbeauty #retelling #magical #readmorebooks #bookstagram

QOTD: When sequels come out, do you reread the first book(s) or just dive right in?
.
A big thank you to @glasstownent for sending this beautiful copy of #WinterGlass by @proofoflex! I can’t wait to read it, after I reread #SpindleFire, of course.

I’m pretty free for the next few weeks so I can’t wait to take new photos. Swipe right to see a little behind the scenes editing.

Photo 1 - the final photo (I got rid of the ugly yellows).
Photo 2 - the first edits of the original photo (brightened it up, tweaked the colors).

This duology is an absolute dream! I adored both books in this series. Essentially a retelling of sleeping beauty but really so much more and it's own story in its own right. If you love fairies and sleeping beauty you need to read these books! #bookworm #spindlefire #winterglass #sleepingbeauty #retelling #fairytale #lexahillyer #fantasy #ya #readmorebooks #bookstagram @proofoflex

That was.....a trip!!! I spent the whole time drawing a lot of comparisons to this book and Alice in Wonderland, and as you might have guessed, I'm a big Alice in Wonderland fan. It didn't occur to me, till I read the synopsis for the sequel, that, that might have been done on purpose!! I also dedicate the song Helpless from Hamilton to the romance of Isbe and William, because everytime I read about them, that song played I my head!! Anyways it was so good and I Can Not wait to read to next one! #spindlefire #lexahillyer #sleepingbeauty #aurora #isabelle #retelling #fairytale #faerietale #fantasy #fantasyworld #fantasyfiction #yabooks #yafantasy #yalit #youngadultlit #youngadultbooks #youngadultliterature #youngadultfantasy #youngadult #book #bookstagram #bookworm #bookaddict #bookaholic

“One night reviled,
Before break of morn,
Amid the roses wild,
All tangled in thorns,
The shadow and the child,
Together were born.” - Lexa Hillyer, Spindle FireWinter Glass
✨
I really liked Spindle Fire and the one thing I wanted was for it to be a wee bit darker. Apparently Winter Glass (book 2) has that element and I’ve been searching for it at my local bookstore (which is under construction and has zero inventory of anything rn). I may have to order it, which isn’t always the better option when it comes to Canada Post. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Have you read them? What were your non-spoilery thoughts?

Happy Thursday! I can almost taste the weekend 😎
.
Day 3 of #bookstagramtogethermay : Judged by the cover .
I am a sucker for this one. Pretty cover and I'm like oooooh I need, even though the content my not always be my cup of tea. Willing to try them though. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
These two covers are both beautiful. Spindle Fire I must say, I wanted to read anyway regardless of the the cover. When I saw that it had a sequel, with that cover also being a stunner, I immediately bought it hoping it would be good
.
As I have read neither of these and they sit with their TBR friends, I hope that I once again haven't fallen into the judged by the cover trap
.
👉🏼 Side note: this cat is so cheeky. You'd think it was his bed the rate he hogs it 🙄🐱
.
QOTD: do you judge by the cover of the content? 🍃

Finally my copy of Winter Glass arrived!!! I pre ordered it months ago and was looking forward to it arriving on release day (also my birthday), but instead I received an email telling me they had no idea when it was going to turn up. So annoying!

But finally it had turned up, alongside the prints and signed bookplate from the pre order campaign. Thank you so much @proofoflex Can't wait to dive into this world again. Looking forward to read the finale about Isbe and Aurora!

Might have to wait until after exams now since it didn't come in the holidays like I wanted. But it sure will be a treat to read it after I'm free from uni work.

Love the map in Winter Glass too. It's so cool to see the additions of the places that were discovered during Spindle Fire; we see the extension of the world.

🌿My little (secondhand) book haul
.
.
Because my TBR shelf is obviously not overflowing and all over the place I decided to add some more books to the huge mess📚📚📚
And what a beautiful mess it is 😍
But, I mean look at them, I couldn’t have resisted for anything. Plus they are secondhand books so I got them for a really cheap price☺️
.
.
No, but seriously now, my obsession with buying books off of medimops and rebuy is getting out of hand. I need to stop. Even the mail man has dropped some comments about it😅 .
.
Would you purchase books that have already been read and aren’t brand new?
For someone who reads a lot and therefor buys a lot of books, I find it pretty useful to purchase secondhand books, since I can save tons of money that way and still read and buy new books.

Want to know where I’m spending the majority of my time today? On my second Wattpad account! I’ve been writing chapters for my fanfics nonstop this morning, so if you have a current favorite on that account, let me know and I’ll update it!
• • •
Other than writing a lot, I’ve also been getting a lot of my reviewer reading done. I’m a little over halfway through Hired Fiancée, and I’m a quarter of the way through Brightly Burning. I plan to have these books done before my job orientation on Wednesday (well, at least I HOPE to have them done by then). I’ve got Istep+ testing for the majority of this week, unfortunately. But then, I’ll only have two weeks left after Friday! How exciting?!

Who else here is eager for school to end?

The happiest of fri-yays! I got home from work to find this has finally arrived! I loved #spindlefire so much, way more than I thought I would, and I'm super excited the sequel is finally here! I'm all settled with my big mug of tea (anything but my maleficent mug would be wrong quite frankly!) and plan to start reading this now. This book is going to be my life for the next day or 2, do not disturb!

I picked up this book from my library, and so far I'm enjoying it, though it was a bit slow for me to get into for some reason. Still, I'm 1/4 in & looking forward to finishing up tomorrow! What are you reading this weekend? 😊

Also, if you didn't see my last post and stories please go see what's up! ♡

Woke up this morning from what felt like a sleeping curse... which is quite appropriate for today’s post ❤️
.

Do you a good retelling? Do you love brave women taking control of their lives? Do you love mystery and romance and a bit of danger? I’m not going to ask if you like the fae, I’m fairly sure I know the answer to that (one word: Rhysand 😉💙)
.
.
If you love all of the above, then you’re going to absolutely want to read Spindle Fire by @proofoflex and the sequel, Winter Glass which has just come out! They’ve got all of this and more! 🌹

And how perfect does this new lib balm from @literarylipbalms look? It smells amazing, and the all natural ingredients are wonderful on your skin! 😍

Day 3 for #FairyPhoto11 - Woodmark & Fairytales 🐺

Love this bookmark, never disappointed with anything from @inkandwonder.designs
They're beautiful and sturdy bookmarks, just what I need.

This map is from the book 'Spindle Fire' by @proofoflex Loved this story; a retelling of Sleeping Beauty at its finest. Definitely a wonderful take on the story. Our two main characters were so interesting and flawed but learning! I can't wait to dive back in to this world. Also the sequel comes out on my birthday, coincidence? I think not!
