“Failure is not the opposite of success—it’s a part of it. And as failures go,” he added with a lopsided grin, “this one was really spectacular, wasn’t it?”
.
Everyone in our Dragon’s Den reading group loved Jackaby so much that we decided to keep going and read Beastly Bones too!
I haven’t had time to dive back in yet but I will soon and I cannot wait to relive this adventure. 😍😍

If you’re looking for Jackaby merch then Annie’s shop is the place to go, and I think she has some new Jackaby stuff in the works too.
And even if you’re not in the Jackaby fandom (which you need to fix that if you aren’t go read this series) I’m positive Annie has something for you in her shop. Go check it out and use code Nerdy10 for 10% off! 💛💛

What’s your idea of the perfect adventure?

“Monsters are easy, Miss Rook. They're monsters. But a monster in a suit? That's basically just a wicked man, and a wicked man is a more dangerous thing by far” - Jackaby
.
This series is phenomenal and I really don’t show it off enough. It’s a bit of Sherlock and Supernatural all rolled into one with all the witty repartee you can shake a stick at and a sassy duck named Douglas who really needs his own series *hint hint* 🦆 .

Good morning booksta! It's another beautiful summer day here in which I can ride through the woods with my love (my horse). Work has had me so busy I feel like I'm neglecting her this summer. So this morning we left at 4am to ride alone. It was peaceful. It felt good to disconnect and bond with her again. Now to read before work. 🌿

This is a bit of a combo of my June #bookhaul and #wrapup 📚😍📚
.
Soooo, once I piled up all my new book purchases I realized that I bought way more books this month than I had thought I did 😓 oops! I may have to put myself on a buy-ban for a month or so!

I just LOVE #bookoutlethaul s. I am rather excited for these!! .

Also, a little June wrap up. I. Read. Nothing. *sigh* Writing and other busy-things have taken up so much of this month... and next month with July's camp nano. I've obviously not mastered the whole time management thing. .

HUGE book haul 📚

I picked up several books during @bookoutlet’s summer sale and a few on @amazon too. There’s so many books I couldn’t fit them all in one picture. 😂 First picture is the two series plus other random books I purchased, second is all the winter and holiday themed books and last one is the adult coloring books. My inner bookworm is completely geeking right now. I can’t wait to dive in! #bookstagram

“The world is full of dragon-slayers. What we need are a few more people who aren’t too proud to listen to a fish.” ~Jackaby
I read Jackaby today and I honestly didn’t think I would end up liking this book as much as I did! It started out feeling a bit like something I would have read when I was 11 years old—not 22. But, as I kept on reading I liked it more and more. It feels very similar to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them—and I LOVE Newt Scamander 💞 I’ll be working on neglected homework for the remainder of the day, so I hope everyone has a lovely Friday ✨ #book #bookish #bookstagram #jackaby #williamritter #beastlybones #ghostlyechoes #thedireking #aesthetics #colorful

Is there anything more exciting than a @bookoutlet haul?! 😍 (featuring my doggo) My only problem is choosing which to read first!! I finished listening to “Anna and the French Kiss” last night and have been listening to “Lola and the Boy Next Door” in all of my spare time today 🙈 I’m not 100% in love with the series but it is nice for long car rides! I hope everyone has a lovely Thursday ✨ #dogsandbooks #book #bookish #bookstagram #haul #bookhaul #bookoutlethaul #bookoutlet #comebacktome #staywithme #runawaywithme #beastlybones #jackaby #thedireking #theshadowqueen #theorphanqueen #themirrorking #anenchantmentofravens #thecryingrocks #beforeifall #wintersong #thissavagesong #ashadowbrightandburning #aconspiracyofkings

Though I’m not ready for the series to be done, this last book was epic and so well executed! There were so many twists, and it also put me through an emotional wringer. 😢 I’ve highlighted some of my favorite quotes to show just why I love these books so much. #thedireking #jackaby #williamritter #icriedattheend #lovemylibrary #bookstagram #booksofinstagram

Hello loves!
I’m doing a reread of this amazing series, and I FINALLY have all the books! I’m so happy there are so many new fandom members☺️
.
.
I don’t have much to say today. I’m in a LOTR mood but I kind of want to watch Merlin too... and part of me is yelling FINISH JACKABY ALREADY😂 And I should listen to Fablehaven too. I’m conflicted😂
.
.
What do you do when you have about 10 different things you want to do vying for your attention when you finally have some free time? How do you choose??

Today has been a day. The thing about twins is that when they have cranky days, there are two babies crying...😬😅 anyways I think I’m going to bed when they do. *
*
#bookreadhappyhour “the game is afoot” The Jackaby series is clearly Sherlock inspired but this detective solves supernatural crimes. The Watson character is a plucky female assistant and their relationship is also reminiscent of Doctor Who, so is the humor. I should be finishing the series. Solid 3.5 Stars. I’ll explain more when I officially finish *

I actually read about half of Jackaby, but then I get really sick and never picked it back up again. But I was loving Abigail’s narrative.

Two series I have no excuse for not yet finishing are Queen of Tearling and Jackaby 😬 I’ve had both final books on my shelves for a long while now and the longer I leave it the more I forget what happened in the previous books 🤔 That said Fate of the Tearling is so big I’m scared to commute with it 😂

I am so sad to say farewell to this series. I didn't know how much I would love it until I got into it, and now I've finished it. I'll never get to experience it for the first time again 😢

If you haven't read the Jackaby books yet, you have such a treat ahead of you! Also, @sheofthedreaming and @thatnerdydragon are hosting a Jackaby book club next month and I think you can still sign up! The discussions are always great. And did I hear that William Ritter is writing again?

🕯️ the dire king review : the ending of this book completely shocked me. still experiencing a #bookhangover and I can't believe that this series is over! each character's ending was so crazy, especially with what happened on the last page. 😲🙆 abigail's ending had me tear-jerked 😢 and proud of her at the same time! ❤️ oh and that moment when she notices that jackaby's eyes are blue at the end!

I really should tackle The Silmarillion soon. I miss Middle Earth. •
It's a beautiful day and I've finally caught up on missed sleep! I may go work in the garden, I think. •
What are you currently reading? I feel like we sometimes forget that bookstagram is about the books. I'm intensely interested in the reading habits of the general public. So tell me! I'm reading The Dire King. I'm almost halfway through and I can't get enough of these books ♥️

#fiercefemalesinlit Day 10
Underrated female character.
Literally everything about the Jackaby series is underrated and everyone needs to read it okay?? One of the main reasons though, is Abigail. She’s a bit of a different type of heroine than what seems to be the trope now. She’s not particularly great at fighting, and she’s not super sassy (though she definitely has her moments). But she’s very kind and curious, and has an amazing sense of adventure.
If I could choose anyone to be bffs with from a book series, it would be Abigail.

What fictional character would you want to be best friends with?

I finally gird up my loins and finished the last book in the Jackaby series today. It was sad to say goodbye, but I loved how the series ended. 💕

Now I just need to convince @swinchester90 to read them!

“I have ceased concerning myself with how things looks to others Miss Rook. In my experience, others are generally wrong.”
.
Jackaby is so low key sassy. I love it. I also love his rainbow hat. And his giant coat. And basically everything about him. 😂😂 I’m not obsessed what.
.
Okay for real though I would wear Jackaby’s hat.
What fictional character wardrobe would you totally steal? I probably wouldn’t steal Jackaby’s, just his hat. I’d probably steal Emika’s from Warcross, or Lagertha’s from Vikings because queen. .
Awesome Jackaby bookmark from @wethedreamingdesigns 💙💙💙

Hello loves!
So I had to post Charlie today. He’s one of the sweetest, best characters ever to be created in literature! Plus the romance is to die for😍 @wethedreamingdesigns seriously did such a fantastic job on him and I’m in love!

Favorite romance?? Charlie/Abigail are way up there, but I also love Éowyn/Faramir and Sam/Rosie😋😍

The last book of the JACKABY series, THE DIRE KING, is a bittersweet goodbye. I thought this was such an intriguing series, with a Sherlockian character set in a magical world as told by his "assistant" Abigail Rook.⠀

“Some girls get married and play house. I assist a mad detective and investigate strange phenomenon.” -somewhere in the Jackaby books that I don’t own so I can’t look it up 😭
.
.
Hello loves!
Happy Saturday!! I’ve spent the day sleeping in, gathering with fellow future authors, and trying to start the new draft of my book since I pretty much scrapped half of the old plot. The rest of the day will consist of work and homework, and maybe a bit more writing (hopefully)!
.
.
I love this bookmark from @wethedreamingdesigns of Abigail, who narrates the series and is basically the most relatable main character ever. The only characters I’ve ever related to as much as Abigail are Britta in Ever the Hunted and Katrina in the Inheritance Cycle😍 Mash those three up and you have a semblance of me. 😂
.
.
What mash up of characters are you?? A lot of people are probably surprised I didn’t include any HP characters, but honestly I don’t see myself in them very well. I aspire to be like a lot of them, but I’m not nearly as spunky as Ginny, not-caring-about-others’-opinions as Luna, or as bossy/know-it-all-y as Hermione. *shrug* Katrina, Abigail, and Britta are more me. 😊

I had been saving The Dire King, the last book in the fantastic Jackaby series, for a special occasion.

Gah. His hat is beautiful😍 @wethedreamingdesigns did such a great job on him and the quote is literally one of my all time favorites!! Swipe to see it😍

Any fun plans tonight beautiful people?? I’m going out tonight and I’m really excited; ice cream + musicals are always a blast, and especially when you have amazing company on top of it!

"I never found a book that did not have at least a little magic in it."

🌹

Q: Do you prefer standalones, duologies, trilogies, or series with 4+ books?
🌹
Mark this series down as something I hate myself for not reading yet.
I started Jackaby at the same time I started Cinder to see which I was more in the mood for...I ended up reading Cinder and never got back to these.
I really need to binge them!

Hello loves!
I must share THE DRAGON CAT CATHERINE. Along with Jackaby in the background with his awful hat from the wood nymph. I just felt like a dragon cat for very well considering this series and some specific events in a specific book. I will not continue for spoilers will occur. But fans of this series will understand😉
.
.
This specific cat is @sheofthedreaming’s Catherine (aka the owner of @wethedreamingdesigns where both of these bookmarks are from). It is part of the dragon cat set in her shop, and my Pippin is among them!! I will probably post his bookmark in the next day or two, but Catherine matches The Dire King better. You should all 1) read the Jackaby series because OH MY GOSH IT REALLY IS SO SO SO GOOD and 2) look at @wethedreamingdesigns’s new bookmarks!! Annie has new HTTYD, Dragon Cats, AND Jackaby bookmarks!! Gah I love them so much 😍😍 And if you use the code HADRAGON10 you get 10% off your order—and they’re already pretty cheap in general. It’s fantastic!!
.
.
What is your favorite childhood movie?? One of my favorites is Winnie the Pooh, and I am watching the newer movie (from 2011) with my roommates and it is glorious 😍😋 We are all different characters (I’m Pooh) and it’s so much fun. 😋

••••Good Morning Book Fiends! I hope your Monday is off to a great start. I’m loving the story templates created by @novelscript I really had to think about what kind of house I wanted lol. I definitely wouldn’t want a house that changed based on my mood that would be awful 😂. I like the idea of a house that moves every 20 days like Howls Moving Castle equipped with my own Howl ofcourse Lol.
For those of you readers who love mystery, the supernatural and Sherlock Holmes please check out the Jackaby series by William Ritter. They are great reads and I typically don’t figure out the villain or villains until the end. So I’m just gonna go ahead and do my mini review of The Couple Next Door. This book was not what I expected at all and the characters like Ann and Marco were a bit annoying to me. The next door neighbor Cynthia if I were to cast her character in a movie would definitely be a young Sharon Stone. The crime committed was a bit shocking to me, and I had to get used to the switching from each character’s point of view. I give this book 3 stars. I’m ready to start Godsgrave and will have a review on that one as well if I haven’t had a small breakdown by the end of the book since the next book isn’t out yet. I hope everyone has a wonderful day!•

Been slowing down reading the final series of #jackaby simply don't want to say farewell to Ms. Rook.#thedireking entire last 40 pages of the book gave me a heart ache and when it was all over I was completely wrecked. It's not wholy satisfying but it is still a great ending.

“My brick. My house. My whole wide world.”
.
So I’ve done many appreciation posts for Abigail, but none for the other leading lady of the Jackaby series, Miss Jenny Cavanaugh
I mean, even being dead doesn’t stop her from being amazing, how much cooler can you get??
I love the sisterly relationship she and Abigail share, and how she’s always ready to speak her mind. Especially to Jackaby who can be a bit... extravagant in his work sometimes.
Her character development was some of my favorite in the series and she’ll forever be an inspiration to me. Huge thank you to William Ritter who has made so many strong female characters. 💜💜💜
.
If you were a ghost, what would you take advantage of? The floating through walls? Would you have fun haunting people? I’d probably just randomly appear places and be like hey and then everyone would scream. 😂😂

🔹отзыв на русском языке в комментариях ✨I'll keep saving you if you keep saving me.
✨All due respect to Romeo and Juliet, but I don’t think love is sacrifice at all. Real love is when you let another person make you better. You don’t lose yourself in love—you find yourself there.
✨I never found a book that did not have at least a little magic in it
🇬🇧 It's always sad when a series end. And I don't want to finish the story "Jackaby" but I understand the book must have an end.
I loved this books with their story, characters, humor and the mysteries.
The "The Dire King" has several funny moments which we should be grateful for thanks Jackaby, but also this book has drama and I think you will cry like me when you will reading the last book.
Of course there you see an epic battle, because it's last book and every thing has reached the end.
I don't want to spoil everything, but I can definitely say that some things wich happen in the book are amazing some will be heartbreaking.#отзыв754 #джекаби #уильямриттер #thedireking #williamritter #jackaby #jackabyseries

Finally finished the Jackaby serie! It was a fun ride ~ I loved Jackaby and Abigail's relationship as detective and assistant (not to mention their humor) 😁 And Charlie is adorable as always hmhm~ I never say no to detective and fantasy and this novel was right up my alley 😉

People seem to love the color red. (For good reason.) Just look at all these tags I have saved up:
#redbooks from @happyindulgence, #coloredbooktag (red) from @ann_ch4, and #bookishcolor (red) from @bookshrine.
This book stack also works for #unreadbooks from @happyindulgence.
I feel as if I’ve just done spring cleaning!
.
If I’ve tagged you, your color is yellow. There aren’t enough yellow books!
.
Is there a color you’d like to see more on covers?

You know I want you
It's not a secret I try to hide
I know you want me
So don't keep saying our hands are tied
You claim it's not in the cards
But fate is pulling you miles away
And out of reach from me
But you're here in my heart
So who can stop me if I decide
That you're my destiny?

What if we rewrite the stars?
Say you were made to be mine
Nothing could keep us apart
You'd be the one I was meant to find
It's up to you, and it's up to me
No one can say what we get to be
So why don't we rewrite the stars?
Maybe the world could be ours
Tonight

You think it's easy
You think I don't want to run to you
But there are mountains
And there are doors that we can't walk through
I know you're wondering why
Because we're able to be
Just you and me
Within these walls
But when we go outside
You're going to wake up and see that it was hopeless after all

No one can rewrite the stars
How can you say you'll be mine?
Everything keeps us apart
And I'm not the one you were meant to find
It's not up to you
It's not up to me
When everyone tells us what we can be
How can we rewrite the stars?
Say that the world can be ours
Tonight

All I want is to fly with you
All I want is to fall with you
So just give me all of you

It feels impossible

It's not impossible

Is it impossible?

Say that it's possible

How do we rewrite the stars?
Say you were made to be mine?
Nothing can keep us apart
Cause you are the one I was meant to find
It's up to you
And it's up to me
No one can say what we get to be
And why don't we rewrite the stars?
Changing the world to be ours

You know I want you
It's not a secret I try to hide
But I can't have you
We're bound to break and
My hands are tied

I close my eyes and I can see
The world that's waiting up for me
That I call my own
Through the dark, through the door
Through where no one's been before
But it feels like home

They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say, they can say I've lost my mind
I don't care, I don't care, so call me crazy
We can live in a world that we design 'Cause every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

There's a house we can build
Every room inside is filled
With things from far away
The special things I compile
Each one there to make you smile
On a rainy day

They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say, they can say we've lost our minds
I don't care, I don't care if they call us crazy
Run away to a world that we design

Every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

However big, however small
Let me be part of it all
Share your dreams with me
You may be right, you may be wrong
But say that you'll bring me along
To the world you see
To the world I close my eyes to see
I close my eyes to see

Every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
A million dreams, a million dreams
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

For the world we're gonna make

“He’s quite mad you know. But adventure can be very appealing.”
.
Attempted to do an Abigail Rook cosplay and I think I got the outfit right but I just don’t have her face. Tbh I need to give this outfit to @jaelynnsbooks or @bookishtypewriters because they would both slay as Abigail.
Either way on a character rating scale from 1- pomegranate, Abigail Rook is most definitely pomegranate.
I could talk about her character for hours. She’s such an amazingly strong female character. She left her entire life back in England to go dig up dinosaur bones and when she didn’t like that anymore she sails to America and takes a job with a guy that quite obviously has a few screws loose. I wish I had guts like that. And don’t even get me started on the events from The Dire King.
Alright this has been an appreciation post for Abigail Rook. 😂🖤🖤
.
What are some characters that you admire?

Photo cred goes @sheofthedreaming 🐲🖤

I feel a reread of this series creeping closer. Maybe if I get one of these books for my birthday I will. I'm holding out in the hopes that my parents have enough money to get just one of the books for me. XD
.
QotD: What are your thoughts on automated testing?
.
AotD: So I had a Spanish Exam the other day, and because all of the answers were preset, I got three or four of them wrong simply because I wrote a correct answer, but in a different way than the test said it was, and it kinda made me mad. I get that having online homwork and tests make grading less stressful on people, but you don't get any credit for showing your work or trying to do better, and if you get stupid stuff wrong like your book said to write it one way and the test says another, you're screwed.

I think I own more books that I haven’t read yet over ones I have…🙃

📚
I have a habit of snapping up titles that look/sound interesting and that everyone recommends reading. I swear, I’ll get to them eventually!

Which books do you own more of: ones you’ve read or ones you haven’t?

I picked these books entirely for their colors, not because they’re favorites. I DNF’d the bottom one, will probably never read the middle one, and meant to read the top one last year. 🤷‍♀️

#emojitag from @paperfury
😍FAVORITE YA ROMANCE: Puck and Sean from The Scorpio Races
😄AMAZING SEQUEL: Son of the Shadows
😭BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY: Chaos Walking
😂MAJOR PLOT TWIST: Six Four
😱BOOK THAT SCARED YOU: I Remember You
😑BOOK THAT DISAPPOINTED YOU: The Casual Vacancy
😰STRESSFUL BOOK: Starfish (but don’t let that stop you from reading it!)

Are there any books you love despite (or because of) how stressful they were to read?

I still can't believe there's a canon scene where Jackaby and Abigail crash a hot air balloon. Iconic

I'm loving love today! •
💕
I'm currently reading Touch by @nataliajaster and I'm loving it. It's written in Natalia's beautiful style, which is different for every character yet poetic and recognizable. And the romance is unfolding beautifully with the characters having a lot of moments and conversations. It's gotten me in a very romantic mood and now I want to watch kdramas and make everything smell like roses. •


#printedalphabetxoxo : red - such a sexy color 😉. ❤️ 🌹 🥀 ❤️

#frenchiefantasyanniversary : #openbook - I tried to find a not super spoilerly part of Crooked Kingdom because it's a beautiful redness is perfect for the first prompt. 😝! •

“Monsters are easy, Miss.Rook. They’re monsters. But a monster in a suit? That’s basically just a wicked man, and a wicked man is a more dangerous thing by far.” - R.F Jackaby

How has everyone's weekend been? Mine has been pretty cool. I got to watch an amputation at work, and for someone like me who's really into that kind of stuff, it was awesome. I'm really loving this job at the vet clinic. Nothing makes me happier than spending my days with animals and my coworkers are already like family. I love being able to take the pup to work with me as well. 🐶

@moonprincess37 tagged me in the #bookstagrammerchronicles tag. Here we go.
1. All time favorite book or series: The Raven Cycle, I still swear these books saved my life
2. All time favorite book boyfriend: Warden from The Bone Season
3. All time favorite female lead: ahhhhhh, I have so many, but I really adore Alex Craft from The Female of the Species
4. All time favorite book to movie adaptation: The Hobbit, not because it's really accurate, but just because I loved it. 😅

Behold this very red book haul from my day out in London with @claire_jay23 yesterday! ❤️🖤❤️The pleasing matchyness is accidental but I’m down for it 😊 Full haul in stories ☝🏽
📚
Q: Which one do I read first? 📚
#grimdragon prompt today was ‘it’s beautiful here too’. Which would be fine because the sea and the South Downs are close by. But it’s gross and rainy 🌧️ and my day off so you’ll just have to take my word for it 👍🏽

“Don’t waste it.”
.
Happy #miserablebookmondays everyone!
I’ve been wanting to do this tag create by the amazing @paperseas (go check her out if you haven’t already omg the amount of talent she possesses I cannot 😍) for a long time but never got around to it, but today is the day I finally post one.
So I thought it appropriate to do one of The Dire King by William Ritter because I WAS CRYING IN MY BEDROOM AT MIDNIGHT BECAUSE THIS BOOK BROKE ME I CANT. If you don’t know me, I don’t cry much over anything. The one constant thing that can make me cry is the series finale of BBC’s Merlin (*distant sobbing*).
Even though I was extremely distressed over what had happened, man was this an amazing book. It was such a good ending to the Jackaby series. I kind of hope there might be another short story like The Map but even if there’s not, I’m content. 🖤🖤
.
What is a book that gave you all the feels? The Dire King definitely did that for me.

🥀So often,” Jackaby said, “people think that when we arrive at a crossroads, we can choose only one path, but—as I have often and articulately postulated—people are stupid. We’re not walking the path. We are the path. We are all of the roads and all of the intersections. Of course you can choose both🥀

I finish my training at work today, after that I can work solo shifts! Whoooo. I'm excited for that. On top of that excitment I'm getting a new car soon, which is great because mine current one is falling apart. 😶 Do you guys have anything exciting going on this week? 👍

@thoughtsinprint tagged me in the #top5tbr tag, another hard one because I have soooo many.
1.) A Court of Frost and Starlight
2.) Spinning Silver
3.) Shadowsong
4.) Sky in the Deep
5.) Daughter of the Siren Queen 🐚

Hello loves!
I went on an impromptu adventure to the nearest Barnes and Noble & Target 1.5 hours away and came home with some fantastic finds, one of which you see here: The Dire King by William Ritter aka Wordsmith Extraordinaire. I have become a very excited fan of his books and writing and characters! Charlie, the silhouette you see on the cover, has become my all time favorite male character and I ship Abigail and him beyond expression. I HIGHLY recommend the Jackaby series to anyone who enjoys mythical creatures, mysteries, historical fiction, a touch of magic, and/or all of the above!! Please please please it’s so good this book needs a fandom desperatelyyyyy
.
.
Also, the covers of these books are so PRETTY and go together sooo well. I can’t get over it. I also threw Fleur in there because she matched the blue on Abigail’s dress😋😍
.
.
What are some of your favorite books that don’t get enough love/have a large fanbase? Jackaby is definitely on my list, along with Two Sisters of Bamarre and Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow (go check out @bibliohannah for a look at that cover; it be gorgeous and her pictures are so pretty😍)
