Are only 12 days left to Christmas? 😱 I'm so excited!
💙
Finally The Dark Artfices trilogy is full! This photo went so well and it was a pure coincidence. I didn't intend to make a heart and when I looked at the camera I was surprised to find the form of a heart I've actually made! I don't know when I'll read Queen of Air and Darkness but I intend to do it soon. After I finish the two books I've left of GoT and KoA. Have you got your hands on the Queen yet? .

BLOG GIVEAWAY ALERT!
.
We are so excited to reveal the cover of LOST SOULS by Chelsea Mueller today! This is book 3 in the Soul Charmer series. If you haven't read the first two, now is the perfect time to catch up before this one comes out February 25, 2019. On the blog today, Chelsea is sharing an exclusive excerpt from the book AND a giveaway of a signed set of books 1&2. Go read and enter! Link in bio.
.
.
BLURB:
.
Get out of Hell free card? Not for Callie Delgado, Gem City's newest soul charmer. Sin and salvation collide in this gritty and action-packed urban fantasy.
.
Callie's magic is finally her own. She and Derek dispatched Ford. They should have been able to breathe, but layers of sin run deep beneath Gem City. Another mob boss quickly rises, and his sights are firmly set on Callie--and her family.
.
Mobile soul rental shops begin to bite at the Soul Charmer's business. His retribution is wicked, but the blowback threatens to crush Callie. If she can't maintain the tenuous balance of souls in Gem City, more lives will be lost.
.
Only the more magic she uses, the more danger finds her. A break-in, pools of blood, and bare shelves at the Soul Charmer's store force Callie to choose the fates of others.

But which can she live with? Losing her city, her love, her family ...or her very soul?

It blows my mind when people say they can't "get into reading." 🤯 I couldn't imagine my life WITHOUT reading, be it fiction or non-fiction.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Reading has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. 📖 It relaxes me, I get to learn something new, and I step into the shoes of someone else to read about experiences I'll likely never have. Fantasy is a fun one too! ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm on my third Christmas🎄themed book for the season. What are you reading right now?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“Fear is a hungry beast. The more you feed it, the more it grows.” - Kerri Maniscalco, Stalking Jack the Ripper
I will never stop recommending this book to any who will listen. Even if they don’t listen... I am incredibly hyped for book 4 and I only just read book 3 a couple of months ago. It definitely has a place in my top 3 series of all time. I know it’s a difficult question, but what’s your top three series of all time?

Pre-Friday is upon us, Ravens! I knew you could make it. What’s the plan for the weekend? Any Christmas traditions happening?
Don’t forgot you have three more days until the giveaway I am co-hosting ends. Make sure to follow the rules and good luck to those who enter!

"To love is much easier than to despair, even when all of your hope has been burned to ashes...I know this with all of my being."
.
A big thanks to @jkscommunications for this amazing book by @roxanne.veletzos.author! I finished it up this morning and am still gathering my thoughts, but it absolutely floored me. In 1941 a Jewish girl is found outside an apartment. Her parents must flee Romania and there is no chance all three can survive if they take her with them. And so they pray that God will take care of her. She is adopted by a wealthy family and given the name Natalia, and her new parents instantly fall in love with her. After the war they find themselves impoverished and helpless, worse off than they were during the war. Through it all Natalia has the love of her parents in more ways than she could ever imagine.

I have read a ton of books about WWII and this book still managed to be unique and refreshing. Not only does Veletzos detail the devastation and panic surrounding the War, but also the heartache that comes after. I also thought that she captured the pain, determination, and acceptance both sets of parents felt. I love that she wasn't trying to favor either the adoptive or birth parents, but showed how they collectively lifted up Natalia. The fact that this book was based on the author's own family makes it all the more inspirational. 🌟🌟🌟🌟☄

In welchem Harry Potter Haus finde ich euch?❤️

•🎄13. Dezember🎄•

Hallo 😊
Eine oft, aber immer wieder gern gestellte Frage🙈😍
Ihr wisst bestimmt schon, dass ich definitiv eine Slytherin bin und heimlicher #dracofan. Hermione kann selbstverständlich nichts und niemand schlagen, allerdings ist auch Snape super und so ein paar andere Personen ebenfalls 😂🐍💚

Heute ist großartige Post gekommen... Die Kerzen habe ich von @melinazahren und freue mich riesig darüber! Die duften nämlich!!! Das könnt ihr euch gar nicht vorstellen... 😱😍
Slytherin nach grüner Apfel und Dracos Girl nach Vanilla&Berry. Beide sehen echt großartig aus. Ihr findet die Kerzen (von Melina selbst gemacht!) aller vier Häuser in ihrem Etsy-Shop unter ReadingBookShop, wo auch Anhänger und Ketten zu finden sind! 💚💙💛❤️
Einen schönen Abend noch und viel Spaß / Erfolg 😊🎄

Happy Friday Jr book lovers!

📚Where do you mostly buy your books from?📚

I have currently been awake for 26hrs straight and I feel as if I am literally a walking, talking cup of coffee with the amount of caffeine I've ingested since waking up yesterday morning. So this girl is off to take a much needed (and deserved!) nap, but I wanted to get a post up for today before I go down for the count.😴

I am so excited, I've updated all my wishlists from @amazon , @bookoutlet and @chaptersindigo and let me tell you there are so many amazing books on those lists I don't even know what to do with myself! I can't wait to see what gets crossed off my wishlists!🙈

Also - make sure you make your @createdbyraemn orders by Friday to ensure you get them for Christmas! You can use BOOKWICCAN10 to get yourself an extra 10% off at checkout!🤑

Q; where do you buy most of your books from?📚

A; I love @bookoutlet and I also love second hand stores - I've gotten some amazing books and even better deals. I highly reccomended checking out book outlet if you haven't already - it's totally worth it.😍

Happy Thursday friends! #25infive starts today and I couldn’t be more excited! As usual, I don’t have TBR-list, I’ll just go with the flow. All I know is that my boyfriend got me Cursed Child as a Christmas gift THREE YEARS ago and I haven’t even opened it. So finishing this books is my goal for this #readathon .
Harry Potter brings back so many good memories from my childhood, I used to have books from this series as a Christmas gift and I remember reading in my room with my stepsister for hours on Christmas day.♥️

Tell me your favourite book related memory!

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan
5/5 stars 🌟
———————>>———————
⚠️ WARNING ⚠️
🚷 Mild s p o i l e r s ahead 🚷
Proceed at own risk if have not read:
The Sword of Summer
The Hammer of Thor
———————>>———————
“You’re a strange person.”
“I prefer the term fabulously weird.”
———————>>———————
Rick Riordan’s ability to incorporate our modern world filled with pop culture references into that of Norse (and Greek) gods will never fail to amaze and delight me.
Is it over? Please don’t let it be over. It seems like it’s over. I need more Magnus. I adore him and I love Magnus and Alex. Their ongoing banter. Like seriously, I ship them so freaking HARD!
So much happened in this incredible tale. I can’t even. Just read it, okay? Embrace its awesomeness.

--> #Recenzja ❄️
.
Siedemnastoletni Elio każde wakacje spędza we Włoszech w letnim domku rodziców. Co roku jest on zmuszony oddać swój pokój rezydentowi, który ma pomagać jego ojcu – profesorowi akademickiemu - w porządkowaniu dokumentów. W tym roku padło na Oliviera, 24-letniego Amerykanina, który pracuje nad własną książką. Początkowa niechęć Elio do nowego gościa przeradza się w fascynację, by już ostatecznie przyjąć formę bezgranicznego pożądania. Jak potoczą się te tygodnie pełne skrajnych emocji?
.
Czytanie pierwszych stron „Tamtych dni, tamtych nocy” było dla mnie wspaniałe. Rozpływałam się nad językiem, którym posługiwał się autor, tym jak pięknie potrafił opisywać pewne odczucia i emocje bohaterów. Byłam zachwycona. Momentami musiałam zatrzymywać się by przemyśleć różne rzeczy i często porównywałam uczucia, które budziły się w Elio z tymi, które kiedyś odczuwałam ja. Jednak mój zachwyt niknął z każdą kolejną stroną. Co sprawiło, że finalnie książki tej nie mogę zaliczyć do tych dobrych?
.
Po pierwsze to, że Elio sam gubił się w swoich myślach. Rozumiem sprzeczności w uczuciach, które są przecież tak często trudne do zrozumienia dla nas samych, ale niestety te niejasności w książce były tak ogromne, że momentami potrafiły mnie bardzo zirytować.
.
Oprócz pierwszych stron nie czułam też od Elio żadnych głębszych uczuć w stosunku do Oliviera oprócz pożądania rosnącego z każdym rozdziałem. Z jednej strony dostawałam przemyślenia, które prowadziły mnie do refleksji, a z drugiej rzucano we mnie mnóstwem niesmacznych oraz wulgarnych momentów i przemyśleń, które sprawiały, że odechciewało mi się czytać tę książkę. Niesmak to właśnie to odczucie, które wyszło na prowadzenie po jej przeczytaniu. Relacje i uczucia między dwoma osobami – niezależnie jakich płci – opisane w ten konkretny sposób skutecznie sprawiają, iż czuję niechęć i wstręt. Również odczucia Elio co do Oliviera stawały się powoli niezdrowe, wręcz obsesyjne. Trudno mi ukryć, iż momentami czułam się jakbym czytała książkę jedynie o napalonym siedemnastolatku... Granice przyzwoitości? Tu nic takiego nie istnieje.

Happy Thursday! What are you up to?

I'm at a Christmas office party today (or I will be in half an hour), so I'm a little excited about that 🎄

I've never read anything by George Eliot, but I've always wanted to. I bought Middlemarch at a book sale only last week, so perhaps I'll actually end up reading her work in 2019! Have you read anything by Eliot?


23

I'm really fond of books that don't go the way I expect. Whether it's differences in what I thought the plot would be, or the writing style, or how (much more) they made me feel, I love being surprised by the stories I read.

What's been a book that has surprised you this year?
_______________________

I'll admit I have a tendency to stick to what I know, which means I don't usually stray too far from my YA bubble.
This year I've been working to expand a little, and I've been pleasantly surprised by what I've found. The majority of my favorite novels this year (Vicious, City of Brass?, Circe, Uprooted) aren't classified as YA, so that's really encouraging me to keep branching out!
