Ignore the fact that I’ve been slacking on #decbookstagram18 the past couple of days and admire these naked books instead!

I used to not pay a lot of attention to what’s under a book jacket, but every time I get a new book now, I always check. It’s a good thing too, because sometimes you end up with delightful surprises! The gold on Black is the most common I’ve seen, but I have a soft spot for the special B&N edition of THE CRUEL PRINCE which features gold on white 👌🏻

“What could I become if I stopped worrying about death, about pain, about anything? If I stopped trying to belong? Instead of being afraid, I could become something to fear.”

Okay, let’s talk hidden covers. I usually forget there are pretty things underneath the dust jacket, so it’s always a surprise. Take TCP for example. The only reason I knew about this gorgeous cover was I was actively reading it when I went to take the photo for today’s prompt. 🤦🏻‍♀️

For your consideration, I give you a very pretty naked book and a reminder that the giveaway for my arc of The Wicked King ends tonight.

Happy Friday, everyone! We made it through the week! 🥳🎉
.
.
✨QOTD: what music gets you in the mood to take pictures for your blog? .
.
I’ve been listening to Novo Amor this morning and I’m thinking I need to buy more of their music on iTunes. 🎧: From Gold 🎶 .
.
.
📖 Favorite Book Cover of ‘18, Christmas Wishlist 📝 -#decinbooks18 ❄️
.
Pine and Snow 🌲-#bookstagramreadsdecember .
.
I think you all know what I want for Christmas besides new music. Books, of course!!! I always always always have to make a trip to Barnes and Noble for my Christmas book shopping! I don’t know which books I’m going to get yet. Maybe Caraval? The Night Circus? Yes?? No?? Any ya lit book recommendations? Send them my way! .
.
My favorite book cover of ‘18 was obviously KOA because who doesn’t love a shiny golden cover with a badass, sword-wielding heroin on it? (And I didn’t realize this until I took off the book jacket, but Sarah J Mass’s signature is on the front!!! I’m so happy, guys! 😄😍) #teamaelingalathynius 🖤
.
.
Show casing my “I will not be afraid” TOG pin from @_iceydesigns and my Rowan candle from @acourtofcandles ! (Thanks so much for these awesome gifts! I promise I will use them well.) ❤️

Hope you all have a magical weekend! 😘 🧚🏻‍♂️✨

The last two months of the year I want to show you my favorite reads of 2018. So, each day I’ll take a picture of one of my 4,5 or 5 ⭐️ books. In September I’ve read Spaar de spotvogel (To kill a mockingbird ) by Harper Lee a beautiful classic about racism, growing up and family and friendships.
I was especially moved by the way Atticus talked to and with his children.
I gave this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⭐️ #spaardespotvogel #tokillamockingbird #harperlee #classics #classicbooks #literature #classicliterature #importantbooks #bestbooks #bestreads #bestreads2018 #bookstagram #booklover #flatlay #hardcover #nakedbooks #ditchthatjacket

Animal City | Joan Negrescolor | c.2018 (originally c.2017, Portugal)
Under the cover bits ✨
.
Nina is a storyteller for her animal friends in the jungle city, a peculiar place where jungle and city coexist. “This is where the animals and plants live...and where lost objects are found.”
Vivid colors breathe life into every spread, while the story’s narrative allows for a unique look at the wildness (human or animal) that makes a city.
Bold palette, interesting shapes, a story for the imagination...this book fits the bill perfectly for the @kidlitpicks Visual Wonders theme.
.

🤓 Happy Tuesday Friends! 👓

I am interested in this quote, it reminds me of another quote of which source I don't have. How, when you love someone, they don't always love the same way & you shouldn't expect it to be so. You find out how or what they enjoy & how they would best likely shown affection and go from there. I was bowled over that people love differently!! But it makes sense, right? We are all different! Different people = different expressions... 😍

I, um... 🤓 Broke my glasses. 😩 And I should have an eye examination, it's been multiple years, it's just costly as our insurance doesn't cover anything. In the meantime we are using a little splint & duct tape to reattach the ear piece. 👓

OMG! I got a bit of my Xmas gifts!! Ordered on Amazon & promptly shipped! So exciting! I really wanted these three books! They were high on my wish list!! 🎉📚🎁❤️ (And of course Precious Hubby bought all three that were highly listed!) (And a BookOutlet haul on the way!) 🙈

🌟💕I'm so excited! 🌟💕

#RFABNov18 day 26 - ditch that jacket. Really late post for me today. Sorry if I don't get to your posts tonight, It's been a super long day at work and I've still got to sort myself out for tomorrow's trip to the eye hospital and work social in the evening. 📚
This is my most recent hardback purchase (august) and triggered my dark hunters reread. I love how complex the world building is in this series!

✨ do you prefer series to be solidly FINISHED or do you like open endings? ⁣

One thing I adored about #MuseofNightmares was it felt *done* but also?? I could see 72984 story lines to chase after it and that made me so madly in love with the world. 😍 (A spin off about Thyron Nero? Yes thank u.) But that saying...some (other, not these ha) books leave so many loose ends it’s frustrating?? Mrghgh.⁣

Also gUESS WHO HIT 28K YESTERDAY. That was day 3 of NaNo for me 🤗 I’m hoping for another 10K day and for my characters to stop trying to kill each other. But IDK one of those is unrealistic.⁣

✨tell me some favourite sister duos in books!?? Besides the Hunger Games😌just to make it tricker.⁣

I love reading about sisters! Probably bc in books they’d all die for each other, but I’d sell all 4 of mine for a grape. (I HOPE NONE OF THEM SEE THIS. jUST KIDDING, SISTERS! I LOVE YOU!😇) Anyway I adore Scarlet/Tella’s relationship, but Tella is my fave because she’s ferociously HERSELF no matter what. Scarlet was a bit of a damp dish towel but she improved in #Legendary (which is the bEST book).⁣

I put more recs up in my Stories too btw.⁣

why you should keep books in your room⁣
✧ comforting presence⁣
✧ you can absorb them in your sleep⁣
✧ they let everyone know you're a total nerd⁣
✧ it's just good decorating⁣
✧ fun and ominous reminder you must read them all before you die⁣

✨ hey tell me some unlikely friendships you love?⁣

This is the part where I am a modest (lmao) author and nominate ➸ Beck and August from my #AThousandPerfectNotes! He is grumpy. She is sunshine. Their friendship grew because she fed him cake. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I write such quality content I can’t even.⁣

The last two months of the year I want to show you my favorite reads of 2018. So, each day I’ll take a picture of one of my 4,5 or 5 ⭐️ books. I’ve read Scythe by @nealshusterman in April. It’s the first book in a fantasy series with a really original plot. The world in Scythe is perfect. No hunger, no misery, no war or disease, but all these things come with a price. If nobody dies, the world get overcrowded, so there are the Scythe. It’s their job to end life. I gave this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⭐️. #scythebynealshusterman #nealshusterman #nealshustermanbooks #simonandschuster #booksandleaves #booksinfall #booksinautumn #nakedbooks #bookspines #ditchthatjacket #booksandpumpkins #youngadultfantasy #youngadultseries #bestbooks #bestreads #bestreads2018 #youngadultbooks #bookstagram #bookstagram

Hey happy Sunday, everyone! .
.
#qotd : in your opinion, what is the prettiest book color on your shelf? .
.
I love blue books! But I think green books are seriously underrated. Green is also one of my favorite colors and Wildcard is another green book I have recently added to my collection. Marie Lu’s books are fantastic! .
.
Fun fact: Wildcard was released right before my birthday in September! It was an awesome birthday surprise to get it in the mail. 😊
.
.
It’s snowing again today and I have a cold. 🤒 So I am inside hiding under the covers and cuddling up with my book and my cat. Hope you all have a wonderful week and are staying healthy and warm. Sending good, green lucky vibes your way! 🍀 .

✨ Tell me a kind of conflict you love and one you hate in books?!
⁣
I totally hate the “there’s no time to explain!” conflict line. 😑Don’t give me that, you overcooked lettuce. Just EXPLAIN. It would take 2 seconds longer to give a mild rundown and my urge to stab would not rise. We all win.⁣

But a type of conflict I love is when two enemies are forced to work together. 😍 mY HEART. They can stab each other, fall in love, become friends, I don’t even care by this point, just let them bicker away and accidentally save each other’s lives.⁣

PS. How freaking awesome are these covers right?! Three of my favourite books!⁣

Night Train, Night Train | Robert Burleigh | Wendell Minor | c.2018⁣
Under the cover bits ✨ Endpaper bits⁣
.⁣
A boy takes an overnight train ride in this rhyming nighttime tale.⁣

“Train ride! Bump-bump.⁣
Chug-chug. Slow.⁣
Faster. Faster.⁣
Off we go.”⁣

Dreamy graphite images begin the journey as colors appear one by one through the dark night. RED railroad light, ORANGE sparks, PURPLE neon sign...each color word highlighted to accentuate the color. Blacks and grays become blues that bleed into the yellows of dawn with the arrival of the train and the journeys end.⁣
A lovely adventure full of soothing text and tender images with surprising pops of color 🚂⁣

Pride has such a beautiful spine under the dustjacket! I don’t know when I’ll get to this book, but I am pretty hyped about it - I love Pride & Prejudice and the premise of this modern retelling sounds great. I actually haven’t read any of the other books in this photo either 😅 I’m trying to get my owned TBR under control but it’s a slow process... I haven’t bought that many new books, though, so I’ll catch up some day.
Totally unrelated, I wanted to let you know/remind you that Jannina @paperfootprints and I have created a Discord server for queer readers - I’ll post a link in my linktree later today but for now you can DM either of us to get an invite! It’s basically a group chat with several different sections, e.g. for book recs, bookish events, content warnings, art, etc. You can always ask me for more info if you’ve got any questions ☺️ It’s open to anyone who identifies as queer/part of the LGBTQIAP+ community and likes to read!
#grimdragon - 8. Is this a kissing book?
#ocbookstore - Pride & hot pink.

Remember, remember!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!

Happy Bonfire night or Guy Fawkes Day or Monday! I couldn’t let another November 5th go by without digging around for my V mask. Plus it seems extra fitting when tomorrow is midterms day. Be sure to go out and vote!

Off topic: today @ireadergosum is kicking off a new hashtag: #onmondayswereadromance! I’m going to be properly participating soon soon soon and there may or may not be some romance-y content coming to the blog as well. I’m still figuring that part out. Regardless, spread the word and hopefully you’ll join us!

For your consideration, I give you a hot mess of a caption and I don’t even feel bad about it.

Do you ever explore a book when you first get it?
📚
Let me explain: one of my favorite things to do when I get a book as a gift or in the mail is to look it over carefully which is what I call exploring it. I read the copyright, check for back or front matter (like a glossary or cast of characters), I might read the acknowledgments, I look under the dust jacket, examine the endpapers, and check if the book might be signed.
📚
It’s a fun way to get to know a book and, on a practical level, to decide if the book has something cool I might want to highlight in a photo.
📚
Something I don’t usually do (but will now start to do!) is check the back of a dust jacket. Usually the back of a dust jacket is just blank. When I removed the dust jacket to read Save the Date I was pleasantly surprised to find the header for the Grant Central Station comic strip that features so heavily throughout the story.
📚
What’s the coolest hidden detail you’ve seen on a book?
📚

reasons why reading is great⁣
✧ books are beautiful⁣
✧ you can stack them in tall piles and it’s very fulfilling⁣
✧ makes us seem smarter tbh⁣
✧ reading means you live infinite lives so basically you’re a wizard⁣
✧ if you bury yourself in books the extroverts can’t find you⁣

also it’s the LAST DAY of the #FinnFury challenge and afjdksald I can’t even with how much I have enjoyed hosting this with @miriamjoywrites!! Both of us were a bit nervous 😬but we got over 1,500 entries which is SURREAL and pls go stalk the the hashtag for amazing photographers to follow.😍 I’m so happy!!! We’re not hosting anything for Nov but in the future? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Who knows!⁣

Right now my Stiefvater-obsessed soul is very pleased.😌⁣

Last prompt → “real flowers so beautiful they seemed fake” ~ cover love (this line is from #AlltheCrookedSaints). ⁣
