Just a couple books released this year I still haven’t read. I went out and bought them as soon as they released but here we are. 🌿 I love the book parcel trend I’ve been seeing so I thought I’d give it a try!

I was tagged to do the #bookishalphabet tag by @chibi.reads (thank you!!!) and they chose the letter S!

What are you reading this week? One of my current reads is Onyx & Ivory (I'm actually listening to the audiobook!). I'm only a few chapters in and am really liking it. Have you read it yet? How pretty is this cover?! I thought it was appropriate to do it in black and white given the title.

Good morning everyone this is currently my mood 😴

Kate from Onyx and Ivory has been bumped up to number 2 of my favourite literary characters. No one has yet to dethrone Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice lol.
Kate's character is so well written. I feel as if most people think that in order to be strong you have to be loud, mean, and overly aggressive. I love that Mindee made Kate strong yet gentle. She's always cautious abour hurting others, even when they've wronged her. Honestly I could go on and on about this one but I have 50 pages left so I'm about to finish it before work and die possibly because the next book isn't out til May 2019 😭

“Just Beyond, a pack of nightdrakes swept down the side of the hill toward them like a gray tide. Moonlight glinted off bared fangs and set dozens of beaded eyes ablaze.” ~ Onyx & Ivory⚔️

Hello lovely bookworms! How’s your Monday going? I’m currently listening to The Girls in the Garden by Lisa Jewell and I’m really enjoying it! It’s not as great as her other book Then She Was Gone (which if you don’t know by now, I’m obsessed with it) but I still like this novel! I’m also reading Emergency Contact by Mary H.K Choi and this book is so funny and heart-warming!💕
.
.
.
I first discovered Onyx & Ivory when I saw the Fairyloot unboxing and after reading the synopsis I just had to get it! It’s high fantasy which is right up my alley and I’m super excited to start reading it🙌🏼
.
.
.
What book has been on your radar for a while?📖
.
.
.
I’ve been eyeing Sky in the Deep for the longest time now and I can’t wait to start if! I’ve also wanted to read Heart of Iron (Which is an Anastasia retelling) for a while now since the synopsis seems interesting📚

QOTD: What books are you looking forward to the rest of the year?

A: My main one has to be Kingdom of Ash because it’s the finale of the ToG series and I don’t know how I feel about this. I’m in a love/hate relationship right now!

Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a great start!
.
Just a quick post today, since I just got home from a barbecue with the in-laws. So typical: it's been sunny and dry for 3 weeks in a row, but today, when we wanted to sit outside and enjoy the food and company, we had a thunderstorm 😒
.
Have you read Onyx & Ivory? What did you think? I really enjoyed it, but it didn't offer anything new, it was a pretty standard YA fantasy.
.
Happy reading! 💕💕💕

I am watching Wonder Woman the movie for the first time right now and on one hand I really like it. On the other hand I am annoyed about how different the story is from the book.
What do you think about the movie?
Did you enjoy the books?

Also welcome to all my new followers😁👋

You guys are gonna get so sick of me talking about Onyx and Ivory buuut it's the map I went with for #mapmonday My little dragon on the side posing as a daydrake as well.

Im currently on chapter 22 and trying to force myself to read slowly because I'm not ready for the book hangover that will surely come after finishing this one.
Are you all subscribed to any monthly book boxes and if so, which ones?

Haven’t read this one yet but it’s such a beautiful book I just had to use it for this picture.

“the villain is the hero of her own story.”

do you guys like villains? or do you prefer heroes? heroes that are actually villains? villains that are actually heroes??
i prefer my villains know they are villains, yet they do evil things anyway. like the Joker🃏
the Darkling is also a pretty cool villain (but i’ve just read the first book so i know nothing) and i’m not sure why i put Onyx & Ivory in there, except that it’s my current read (it’s so good!!) and that the main character is labelled a traitor. don’t trust labels. stop labelling and start living💃🏼

Hello lovlies 🖤.What usually distracts you from reading?
.
.
.
I noticed that since I controlled both Netflix and Bookstagram time, I read alot more books. I’m obsessed with time manegment 😁. I have this phobia of wasting time, hours passing by without me actually doing anything 😁.How organized are you? Do you always manage to find reading time? .

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I am kind of sad it’s Monday and my weekend is over. But I started reading Onyx and Ivory last night and it has another gorgeous map so I couldn’t resist sharing it. I can’t wait to get home from work and carry on reading.
Happy reading, -A 💕

Beautiful cover, beautiful book, amazing read. Read it in less than a day. Definitely going to read it again because I'm sure I missed a few things reading it so fast.

Fell in love 😍 with this cover!! I know I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover but I can’t help myself when it’s so pretty!!! •


Do you pick out books solely on the cover?? •

Can someone please take away my phone and internet and do my household chores and cook for me so I can read for a few days straight and catch up on my TBR?

Onyx & Ivory Is a book I was super excited for and receiving this gorgeous copy in @fairyloot made me so happy. And yet, it sits unread staring at me from my shelf. 😫

Trees on covers. ❤️

So I finished Legendary last night. O. My. Stars. It's now my favorite book. So good. And now the long wait for the finale.
QUOTD: What are you reading? 📖🍫📖🍫📖🍫📖🍫📖🍫📖🍫📖🍫📖🍫📖🍫
#storybookjuly18 - trees on cover
#julybookstagram18 - fun facts - I love dead or half-dead trees. How they keep reaching for the sky whether dying or dead.
#bookreadhappyhour - prophecies - Onyx and a Ivory has a type of one. The uror mark that will determine the next king.
#nadineslibrary - it's a sockless #socksunday. All my socks are boring and it's too hot for socks. Free the toes.

I just finished Onyx & Ivory (which was a total cover buy btw) and it was a great story, the whole time I was reading it I kept thinking this author seriously knows her horses and since my bestie grew up raising horses I couldn’t wait to recommend it to her. .
.
The main story line is about a feisty young woman who has been branded a traitor (by association) after her beloved father tried to murder the king. She’s gone from a comfortable life living among the Gentry to a lowly life as a relay rider. The prince she was once in love with now despises her (and she him),and each ride could be her last if she doesn’t make it to the check point before sundown (when the packs of vicious drakes come out to hunt).
.
.
That’s about the set up for the first chapter and things just get juicier. I really enjoyed it and if you like court intrigue, schemers, horses, dragons, magic and mystery this book would probably be a great fit for you. .

Onyx and Ivory review ★★★☆☆ okay so, I JUST put the book down so leeeeet's get on with this!

I did very much enjoy the story but unfortunately the writing really stuck out for me.

It was like reading an amateur text. I loved the characters but found the book rushed and the plot twists predictable.

And the most agonising thing that I cannot understand is WHY IT'S CALLED ONYX AND IVORY?! Is it really because of their hair???? Someone help me!

I think the world was pretty well built but I hated that most things weren't resolved at the end, obviously leading it into another book. I just don't like that. I like my books to be able to stand alone. Maybe the second book will be better but honestly I'm probably not going to read it.
SPOILER TIME!

What was up with every character picking at their face?! I swear most of Corwin's character development is him just touching the scar on his face 😂

I did like the whole "I am Traitor Kate" thing at the end and she owned that title like a boss!

I had pretty high expectations for this book because most bookish subscription boxes had this in their boxes. Unfortunately, it was a little bit of a let down for me.

📍Being die-hard book lovers, we generally hate dog-eared pages or overturned books left flat open to keep us from losing the page we paused reading on. This obviously causes damage those precious book pages and to the delicate book spine. And although we are really optimistic that we'll remember page numbers, we may fail to recollect whether we where to begin reading again... was it from page 112 or 121. No wonder bookmarks and bookworms are partners in crime.🔖🚓📘

📍With countless designs and styles available, collecting bookmarks is very popular today. The largest collection of bookmarks belongs to Frank Divendal of The Netherlands. As of February 8, 2010, he has 103,009 different bookmarks from all over the world which he has been collecting since 1982. (www.guinnessworldrecords.com) 😮

Archived repost because I actually need to take more pictures 😬

Today was an unbelievably long day. So glad I normally don't have to work on Saturdays because those are the days I need for myself 😌

I'm about to relax, watch a few episodes of Season 2 of Anne with an E and read Onyx and Ivory

Happy Saturday, guys! Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
...
Why do all the YA fantasy books have to have such stunning covers 😩My wallet and heart can't take too much more...Onyx & Ivory by @mindeearnettauthor was in the May @fairyloot box this year, so I thought I'd give it a try!
...
Synopsis:
They call her Traitor Kate. It’s a title Kate Brighton inherited from her father after he tried to assassinate the high king years ago. Now Kate lives as an outcast, clinging to the fringes of society as a member of the Relay, the imperial courier service. Only those most skilled in riding and bow hunting ride for the Relay; and only the fastest survive, for when dark falls, the nightdrakes—deadly flightless dragons—come out to hunt. Fortunately, Kate has a secret edge: she is a wilder, born with magic that allows her to influence the minds of animals. But it’s this magic that she needs to keep hidden, as being a wilder is forbidden, punishable by death or exile. And it’s this magic that leads her to a caravan massacred by nightdrakes in broad daylight—the only survivor her childhood friend, her first love, the boy she swore to forget, the boy who broke her heart.
.
The high king’s second son, Corwin Tormane, never asked to lead. Even as he waits for the uror—the once-in-a-generation ritual to decide which of the king’s children will succeed him—he knows it’s always been his brother who will assume the throne. And that’s fine by him. He’d rather spend his days away from the palace, away from the sight of his father, broken with sickness from the attempt on his life. But the peacekeeping tour Corwin is on has given him too much time to reflect upon the night he saved his father’s life—the night he condemned the would-be killer to death and lost the girl he loved. Which is why he takes it on himself to investigate rumors of unrest in one of the remote city-states, only for his caravan to be attacked—and for him to be saved by Kate.
...

》 Reading forces you to be quiet in a world that no longer makes place for that.《
- John Green

If you compare my last 3 pictures you see that the 2nd one has a totally different colour base(is that the right word?!). I don't know how this happened since the colour was already different before editing. And the pictures were all taken at the same time.
But anyway I really like them.
The sea and books (at the same time) always have a special place in my heart. •
I am about to go to the sea rigjt now with a friend.
The cliffs and sea in Howth co . Dublin are just stunning!

Also I am back at writing! I am so excited about it and I hope I don't lose my motivation so fast again!

Hellllo bookstagram. Since it's Friday the 13th thought I'd bring out Oogie Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas 👻

I'm only 4 chapters into Onyx and Ivory and it's already hard to put down. I love when books manage to draw you in fully within the first few chapters.
Definitely a change from The Darkest Part of the Forest which I just wasn't all that into at all. 😬

What are your plans for the weekend?

One of my favorite items included in the June "Earthist" box from the @wanderlust.reader2017 is the golden foldable bookstand which I found to be very useful and helps me to read a whole lot faster since my arms don't get tired from holding heavy hardcover books anymore. You can't really tell from this pic but it's gorgeous and elegant. ❤️ #wanderlustreader #wrjunejourney .

QOTD: What is the biggest book you guys have ever read? 🖤


Hmm...I think #ACOWAR is quite a big book that I’ve read recently 👀 However, I have to read American Gods by Neil Gaiman for my University course this year and that book is very hefty!


What are you guys up to today? I’ll be continuing my proofreading—stage three of editing my novel!

Hello Bookish Friends🤗
*Bookish shops: Early this spring I bought four bookmarks from @dreamyandco which was my first time buying from a bookish company. It was so much fun opening the package and seeing my bookmarks up close in person. So beautiful!😍 I bought An Ember in the Ashes, Everything Everything, Gilmore Girls, and a #bookstagram bookmarks. Each were very creative and unique. The only other bookish shop I've bought from is @fairyloot the May Save the Kingdom box. Each item was so well made and I have used and loved. This past week while I was on vacation I used my book sleeve nonstop. Also the book of the month had sprayed pages!
Anyway I definitely recommend both @dreamyandco and @fairyloot Both were so worth the money. *Not Sponsored
I hope to buy more bookish products in the next few months would you please recommend your favorite shops! 💖 What's your favorite bookish shop? 💐 Have you bought from @dreamyandco or @fairyloot 📖 Thanks book lovers🤗

qotd: have you read onyx and ivory?

i received my copy in a past @fairyloot box and its the most gorgeous edition with black sprayed edges 😍 i didn’t bring it with me on holiday but that and beyond a darkened shore (another past fairyloot book) are at the top of my tbr x

i’ve now moved onto the king of attolia (book 3 in the queen’s thief series) and i’m loving it! honestly if you need a good fantasy series thats set in ancient greece/rome i’d definitely recommend it 🙈 the first book isn’t the best but the others are so good!

JULY/AUGUST TBR! *question below*

I know it’s half way thru July but here is my TBR I included August as well BECAUSE I am leaving for a week on Wednesday and will not have a chance to read AT ALL!

I am going to a Country Music Festival called Faster Horses with some of my girls from college... which means no chance to read!

Q: What is your favorite genre of music?

A: Mine of course is Country! I’m just trying to find myself a nice country man 😍

Hello lovelies!! 💗
Happy ALMOST Friday! 😊 I have work today, but tomorrow my family and I are heading to the beach for vacation!!! 🌸🏝️ .

I just finished Onyx and Ivory by Mindee Arnett and I freaking loved it! I was so intrigued by the magic system and every single character was dynamic and showed great development throughout the book. I can only imagine where the story is going to go in Shadow and Flame (book 2)! 😍 .

I can’t brag enough about this book! Onyx and Ivory is so good!
.
I really enjoyed the characters and the plot. I can’t wait to see what else is in store for us as readers from @mindeearnettauthor.

This beautiful edition came from the @fairyloot box. I absolutely adore the black stained pages that it has.

》It's what you read when you don't have to that determines who you will be when you can't help it.《
- Oscar Wilde

I rrally like this quote but it leaves me honestly wondering what the books that I read really say about me.🤔
But it is a interesting thing to write about.
What would the books you read say about you?

No. 37 Fantasy - Onyx & Ivory by Mindee Arnett. I didn’t think I was going to like this book but it definitely surprised me! A new twist on a classic swords and sorcery genre 😄 #nerdreading2018 #thenerddaily @thenerdaily #day325 #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #readingchallenge2018 #goodread #mindeearnett #onyxandivory

Onyx and Ivory is beautiful and sounds so intriguing! *places on top of my ever growing tbr pile* I always feel like I’ll never actually get to all the books on my tbr... oh well, a girl can hope. 💁🏼‍♀️
I’m over 100 pages into The Summer of Us and I’m enjoying it so far! I feel like I enjoyed Jen Malone’s books more, but we’ll see once I actually finish TSoU. It’s definitely hitting the spot for a cutesy, romcom contemporary that I’ve been craving though!

qotd: what are you currently reading?

after i accidentally bought the 5th book in the queen’s thief series by megan whalen turner, i managed to track down the first four books and i’ve bought them to barcelona with me! i’ve finished the first one (the thief) and if i’m honest i wasn’t that impressed but i loved the main character, and now i’m reading book 2 (the queen of attolia), i can see why loads of people love it 😍

Hello everyone!
How are you? I’m quite well but I’m a bit tired because I couldn’t sleep very well last night😢. I’m in mountains with my friends and the place is lovely, it’s so relaxing😍. Onyx & Ivory was the book of the May Fairyloot and I really can’t wait to read it, the plot is seems to be really great and I want to meet Kate, the main character😍. Can we take a moment to appreciate the illustration by @taratjah? Because it’s amazing!💕

How long do you stick with a book if you are having a hard time starting it?
.....
For me it might depend on how many trusted sources recommended it, if the description really captures me, and honestly my overall mood. Onyx and Ivory was a slow start book for me. Here is my quick review.
🖤🔮🖤🔮🖤🔮🖤🔮🖤
“I will not live a life that’s not my own. Not even for you.”
.............
This book was slow and difficult for me to get into, in the beginning, and then very suddenly I couldn’t put it down. I think the slowness can be explained by this being a first book in what looks to be a very promising series, and to introduce all the key players and backgrounds took a bit of time. I am very glad I stuck it out though. I love the strong lead female, and the story itself is very interesting. I would definitely add this one to your list if you are a fellow lover of YA Fantasy, I really think this could be an epic series. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

JUST finished Onyx and Ivory and absolutely LOVED it! Makes one of my favorites of all times! I thought it was original, unlike a lot of others. I don’t believe the non-original ones are particularly BAD, but I always appreciate a unique book. It was very beautiful, I was shaking throughout the whole adventure. Unlike a lot of other book relationships , this one was hardly tainted by doubt and they trusted in each other completely, no matter the mistakes. Amongst so much drama and conflict, they made it simple. Almost easy. Beautifully written and I can not wait for May! And thank you Lit joy for this beautiful copy! @litjoycrate

🚨 NEW #bookmail ALERT! .

Yipee! 🙌 I love when you order a bunch of books online and they arrive one at a time. It gives me something to look forward to throughout the month 😊 .
🔲
Do you guys like receiving books one at a time or all at once?
🔳
I couldn't have gotten this at a more perfect time. I finished reading Bring Me Their Hearts yesterday (which I'm now obsessed with btw) and I needed another fantasy fiction read, STAT! #currentread .
🔲
Onyx & Ivory had me with the cover alone! Fingers crossed the book itself is equally amazing! .

Obwohl der Prüfungsstress vorerst vorbei ist und ich mich endlich Abends mit einem Buch entspannen könnte, fehlt mir im Moment irgendwie die Motivation.
Ich hoffe das legt sich schnell wieder 😱 auf meinem SuB warten nämlich einige Bücher auf mich, die unbedingt gelesen werden wollen 😍
