Author Bio
Laura Mae is a new author with her first book released in March 2018 called Fliers. About a year before it was published, she was working on it for about 7 years, on and off. With a single dream as inspiration, her idea for the book came to life. Writing has always been a passion for her. Growing up, she would write short stories, poems, song lyrics and even attempt screenplays. It wasn't until recently she became more serious about her writing and wanting to show the world what she could do. When she's not writing, her other passion is graphic design. Basically anything she can spend hours in front of a computer screen doing, is her ideal activity. She also enjoys hiking and the outdoors, loves animals, wine, video games, binging Netflix shows and spending time with family.
*
@lauramaeauthor is working on the second installment of the series (Sparrows) and the series will be a #Trilogy!
*
Synopsis
As descendants of fairies, fliers were an old, forgotten species who appear human but could fly without wings. They lived peacefully amongst humans for several decades until a secret government agency developed new technology that allowed experimentation on fliers and discovered how to make ordinary people fly. Not sitting back and accepting the news, Sydona Wilder and her fairy Raoul, set out to find the agency and put a stop to the capture of the rare species. But Sydona will have to fight her own battles of facing her dark past and learning how to trust people again.
*
PS. #Tinkerbell wanted to say "I love you!" to everyone ♥️

Hi @thatslovelydearshop! My name is Bianca, I’m 22 and from South Africa. I’m an avid reader and blogger. I’m in my final year of university and I love adventures and writing. I’m very active in the bookstagram community and I post daily, and I’m active on my story as well. ———————————————
I just stumbled across your beautiful shop and I’m glad that I did. I love your pins! They are so beautiful, so I thought I’d enter your rep search. I would love to represent your stunning pins on this end of the world. I can represent you on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and on my blog (link in bio). ———————————————
My photo style is very clean and minimalistic, as it gives the book and prop featured a lot of attention. I would make sure your pins are at the centre of my pictures. ———————————————
For a pin I’d like to see next I’m going to have to go with something mermaid related, perhaps something from To Kill a Kingdom or Between the Sea and Stars. ———————————————

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." - I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, Maya Angelou

HAPPY T Y P E W R I T E R DAY

On this day let us take a step back and appreciate these bulky, noisy yet stunning pieces of history. Let us not forget that some of the world's finest literature classics were written with these devices & recognise that the mechanical keyboard will never quite reach the magnificence of a classic typewriter in action (in my opinion) 😬😍❤️ Hope everyone is having an epic weekend 😬

Do you give books as gifts? What are some that you enjoy giving or what was the most well received?
*
I love receiving books as gifts!! Or money for books!! 😁 And I'll always gift books if I can, but not everyone enjoys reading as much as I do, though, so not every gift I send is a book...
*
This is a Birthday present for my lady boss, who is as avid a reader as I am - we offer exchange ebooks whenever one of us gets a new one - and since we have similar tastes, I know she's gonna love this one!
I have read this book, and my entire household has read this book - including my nephew who doesn't read - and I rate it 5 stars!
*
Guess the book inside correctly and I'll give you a story shoutout!

So this morning I awoke with a reminder from my boss about training that I was supposed to attend today. That I kinda forgot about. In an attempt to adult I wrote a to-do list of things I need to do and also tried to make sense of my work schedule for the coming month. And while mentally preparing to get ready for the day, one of my colleagues pointed out that my boss got the day wrong and training is not today but tomorrow. *Note to self: keep track of the dates!!!* I also in this moment realized that I had the wrong venue in mind of where training would be so *note to self: ask more questions you're too shy to ask in case you look like an idiot because you've already been told the answer 5 times already and just never wrote it down* also *note to self: there's another training you're supposed to attend and you need to find out when and where it is??? Even though you've been told like 6 times already* also *find out how to pay rent before rent is due* also *stop buying sweets payday is so far away* and ummmm.....
If any of you read this far I'm sorry :/ #lifeofanexpat #firstrealjob
[Picture taken when I was back home]
Also!! Aparantly I can't import stuff here cos I'm not a citizen/permanent resident so :/ I'll just have to ship things home and see them in a year 😩

Hi Beauties!
💕
Today is cover reveal day for #circleofshadows by @evelyn_skye !!! And how beautiful is this design💖
💕
SYNOPSIS
“Sora can move as silently as a ghost and hurl throwing stars with lethal accuracy. Her gemina, Daemon, can win any physical fight blindfolded and with an arm tied behind his back. They are apprentice warriors of the Society of Taigas—marked by the gods to be trained in magic and the fighting arts to protect the kingdom of Kichona.
.
As their graduation approaches, Sora and Daemon look forward to proving themselves worthy of belonging to the elite group—but in a kingdom free of violence since the Blood Rift Rebellion many years ago, it’s been difficult to make their mark. So when Sora and Daemon encounter a strange camp of mysterious soldiers while on a standard scouting mission, they decide the only thing to do to help their kingdom is to infiltrate the group.Taking this risk will change Sora’s life forever—and lead her on a mission of deception that may fool everyone she’s ever loved.
.
Love, spies, and adventure abound as Sora and Daemon unravel a complex web of magic and secrets that might tear them—and the entire kingdom—apart.”

The map was created by the Marauders: Remus Lupin (Moony), Peter Pettigrew (Wormtail), Sirius Black (Padfoot) and James Potter (Prongs) during their years at Hogwarts, and was confiscated by Filch because he believed it to be a dark object, though he apparently never discovered its secret."

Hello, Sproutlings. This is a repost from @mr.pink.ink. Jacques was kind enough to interview me for his blog, as well as posting a lovely review for The Goblin and the Stolen Ring at the same time. 🙌 The link is in his profile, if you'd like to read it (and why wouldn't you? 😆). Why not give him a follow while you're there, if you aren't following already?
.
Regrann from @mr.pink.ink - "In the back of Sprout’s mind, the place that held all the bad thoughts that usually popped to the front at inconvenient moments, Sprout wondered if you could drown in sweat. He told himself that wasn’t possible. It was easier to lie when it was to yourself.” ~ @julietboydauthor
*
Have you ever read a Children's book and enjoyed it so much you wished you had kids to read it to? Well, #TheGoblinAndTheStolenRing is one of those books - it's filled with adventure, magic and mishap that is bound to make you relive your childhood again!
*
Go get yourself book 1 in the Tales from the Forest of the Hooting Owl and join in the misadventures of a young rambunctious #Goblin named Sprout!
*
I highly recommend this book to children of ALL AGES!! I loved it and cannot wait to get my hands on more!
*
My review is live on my #Blog now and it includes a short interview with the #Author and all the places her books are available - link in my bio.

I was tagged (a while ago, oops) by @jozi_bibliophile to do a #bookpropappreciation post. This month I’m using a lot of props that come from my Jack the Ripper case files. Copies of the original letters, newspapers, and police files feature in many photos. Including this one! The Bone Season plays off in London, so I thought the Ripper props were appropriate. ————————————

Hope you all are having a nice Saturday 🐇

This book was okay, but I couldn't relate whatsoever. But it was still a pretty interesting and original story. What did you guys think of the book? (or the movie).

Good morning 🐼
I found this book on a whim and i absolutely loved it! Even if books aren't the most popular doesn't mean they're not good. So heres a challenge, next time you go to a bookstore, dont just buy the newest and best book, go through the sales and markdowns, you may be surprised...

Good morning 🐼

The fault in our stars - old but gold.
But honestly the book was 100 times better than the movie. Or thats just my opinion but i feel like the book had a little more personality and i actually cried a bit, whereas i didn't cry at all in the movie... Hmm... Anyway if you haven't read it yet, do yourself a favour bc even if you know the story the writing is still hella good.

Regrann from @mr.pink.ink - On @indie_blog_hop this week: #ThreeSummers by @authorsjsylvis
*
Synopsis:
"Hi. My name is Sadie and I was the victim of an attempted robbery at gunpoint three weeks ago." Those were the first words I spoke to my therapist last year and now I can say after my freshman year of college, I've finally broken free of my therapy sessions.
The wound on my face has healed and the scar is fading a little more every day. Now if I can just get the scars on my heart to heal that quickly, I'll be golden.
But that's looking pretty tricky since the boy who put those scars there is standing just feet away from me under the blistering North Carolina sun. Apparently, we'll be spending the entire summer lifeguarding together at the country club pool.
A year ago, I was carefree—I was in love and I didn’t have a worry in the world, except for Rowen.
But now, I'm a little older and a lot smarter. I know how to guard my heart. I know how to keep Rowen out.
Except. . .he never really left. And I am quickly learning that my mind and heart are at a crossroads. Maybe I don't know how to guard my heart after all.
And maybe I don't quite know everything I thought I did. . . "

Hi lovelies!💜
✨
Don’t let the hard days win!!! This is the best quote for my life right now...some days are just hard. I know this is true for most people, but we can’t let the hard days win!!💜✨ There is so much beauty in the world...sometimes it’s a fight until you see it☺️💜 Life with little kids can be so tough, but I also get to experience the joys that come with it...THEY are SO FUNNY!! Okay I’m getting so way of track 😂 Anyway, I like the quote🤣

This was supposed to be my entry for the #COCbookchallenge : Dark Queen - Favourite Villain
Disclaimer...I don’t tend to like villains or think much about them, so I don’t have a fave, but I figured I’ll just pick one I really didn’t like...Amarantha from ACOTAR. (Actually I just really wanted to show of my pretty merch🤣🙈Sorry I’m so bad😭💜)

I haven’t read A Court of Frost and Starlight...hopefully soon!!

The double sided magnetic bookmark is a design by @silketara 💜😍💜
(This specific design is available on the Etsy shop DesignsbyTheia ☺️)

QOTD: What is your fave merch to collect?

Much love💜

“You think of beauty only as a blessing, Majesty, but it brings its own punishments.”

I loved this book so much. No love story, a protagonist that wasn’t the most beautiful girl in the Kingdom. You can read more about why I love this book on my latest blog post! Link in bio. ————————————

Happy Sunday bookies ❤️
These were the last pops I bought that arrived just before I left ❤️ George, Neville, & Draco ... Unfortunately Fred went out of stock right before I bought it (these were chilling in my cart for a while) but luckily mother nature had my back & dropped Draco's price to a normal price (he was way overpriced 🙄) anyhow i at least got to take a few pics of them before I left so I have some in my storage 😂
Also I've been doing so much adulting lately idk how my head's above water 😓 maybe years of wanting to be independent is finally paying off 😅 anyhow that's enough rambling for now, happy reading all🌸❤️🌸

"It's not natural for someone to be as stupid as he is tall, and yet there you stand.” ————————————
Six of Crows is by far my favourite book of all time. An impossible heist and six misfits, what could go wrong? I could spend hours talking/sobbing about this series. ————————————
#QOTD: Who’s your favourite SoC character?

Anyone else feel like this week lasted a lifetime?! I’m so happy it’s finally over🎉
I’m actually itching to take some new shots, I haven’t picked up the camera in weeks or a book for that matter😭 I planned a Ramadaan TBR and everything but with exams and these short winter days I read close to nothing of it🙈
P.S @zahraa_saloojee Remember this bookmark? It’s like 7 years old now😱 still going strong 😆

“Words are everything. Words give wings even to those who have been stamped upon, broken beyond all hope of repair.”

I just love this series, set in an alternative timeline in the distant future, where spirits and clairvoyants run rampant. It’s worth the read if you love the paranormal. ————————————
