“I wondered which was sadder, leaving someone to cry after you were gone, or not having anyone who would miss you in the first place.” — Jackaby, William Ritter 🍂
.
.
Happy Wednesday, everyone! What are you reading these days? I finally decided to read some of the books on my list that have been there for a year...or two...or several, starting with The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black. It’s really good so far and I’m starting to think that perhaps Ms. Black is actually a Fairie Queen herself. How else could she write such magical fae characters and worlds? Fairie Queen, that’s why, and don’t try to convince me otherwise. 🍂
.
Next up on my list is the Jackaby series by William Ritter and I’ve heard so many amazing things about this series. And the bonus is that it’s historical fiction, so I have no doubt that it’ll be a series I enjoy. 🍂

One of the best series I have read in a long time. Kudos to you, #WilliamRitter! 👏 If you love a bit of the #occult, an eccentric private investigator (#RFJackaby), an inquisitive and head strong assistant (#AbigailRook), then these novels (#Jackaby, #BeastlyBones, #GhostlyEchoes and #TheDireKing) are right up your alley!

Hello Book Friends! I hope y'all are having a wonderful day! I was checking my emails today, and can you believe nanowrimo is less than a month away?! 😱 I need to sit down and figure out some things with my story this year! I'm super excited about it, though! 😊
.
.
.
.
I can't not post a picture of these lovely books in October! It's such a fun read and I really enjoyed them! 😉

“I excused myself to go see a duck about a dress.”
.
Probably one of my favorite lines from Jackaby right there. It sums up how quirky the book is perfectly. 😂
.
Abigail’s style is one of my favorites. Who’s your bookish style icon? .

Listen to them, the children of the night. What music they make! - Dracula

It took awhile but I did it, an almost perfect coffin made out of red & black books to honor my favourite classic of all time 🦇

Had I more flowers I would have been able to cover up the corners of City of Ghosts and The Space Inbetween, but this was the best I could do with what I had.

Today for #underratedthursday I wanted to showcase the #jackabyseries series by #williamritter. I adore these novels and don’t believe they ever get enough attention. Just ask @novel.novice @fearyourex and @redrchl.reads and they would all agree and if you need any other encouragement these novels are best described as “𝐒𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐥𝐨𝐜𝐤 𝐦𝐞𝐞𝐭𝐬 𝐃𝐫. 𝐖𝐡𝐨” need I say anything more?
.
Since this is my place to discuss a favored read that does get enough love, please share some of your underrated reads.

It’s been a lovely and relaxing day off work today ☺️ And I feel like I want to watch a film tonight, I’m just not sure what yet 🤔

I also just got paid and want to buy ALL the bookish and marvel merch but I’m trying to be good and save the money 🙈 we’ll just see how long that lasts!

I FINALLY finished reading the Jackaby series last month. From the amazing characters to the crazy paranormal shenanigans, these books are so fun and one of my favorite middle grade series! It’s basically Sherlock meets Supernatural. What middle grade books do you love? 👻

These covers from the Jackaby Series are so breathtaking I couldn't resist posting this! I think like most book readers I don't usually like real people on covers but THIS! This is how you do it right! Absolutely gorgeous! #jackaby #beastlybones #ghostlyechoes #thedireking #williamritter #bookstagram #books #jackabyseries

Qotd: does you family have a book that has been passed down through generations. 🌿
---
Aotd: oh yes, our box set of Lord of the Rings is old and well loved. They were given second hand as a gift to my mother and have since been read time and time again by my brother and I. They are a little wore, yellow with age, and have some loose pages, but they are books that feel like coming home. 🌿
---
I finised Crimson Bound last night and wow it blew me away. Honestly this book needs more love for being very original. The world building is fantastic, I would visit the great forest to meet a forestbound in a heartbeat. I probably wouldn't survive, but that's whatever. Seafire should be arriving in the mail today, so that's the next book in ready to devour. Happy reading booklings. 🌿

📚
“Selina glanced to the metal door behind her and started slinking toward it.
“Don’t you even dare leave without telling me the details,” Ivy said. She marched across the room, dodging everything from discarded fishnets to pink wigs to a cymbal-playing monkey toy. Plopping onto the red fainting couch before an old TV, she patted the worn velvet beside her. “Time for some girl talk.”
“I don’t know how to do girl talk,” Selina admitted, approaching the couch.
“Good. Neither do I,” Ivy declared, smiling up at her.”
~ Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas

🌸

Q: How many books did you read this month?
🌸
I’m so disappointed in myself for this month. I only managed 9. Considering I had planned for double that amount, it’s kind of sad.
But considering the first half of the month I had a crippling migraine and the second half of the month I had the flu, i should be proud I got this much done.
Plus side, all of these books were AMAZING! I loved them all and recommend them all!

(Since this does not have a physical book, I’m posting the digital cover.) GUYS!!! I had no idea The Map was a free download, so I downloaded it today and read it within an hour! It was a fabulous little book and I loved it so much.🦆💜

“Are you just pulling my leg?” I demanded.
Jackaby gave me a blank look. “I clearly have not touched your leg, Miss Rook.”

🌸

Q: I always love your recommendations! Recommend you favourite underrated series. Preferably a series that’s finished.
🌸
I’m currently reading the Jackaby series and I’m honestly shocked I don’t see it more around bookstagram. This is definitely a new fav series. I love it so much!
My mom actually recommended these to me.
🌸
Is this new currently reading bookmark from @lovelybookishmarks the most stunning bookmark ever? Why yes I do believe it is.
Callie is knocking it out of the park with all of her new printed bookmarks. She just posted a new Vicious one that’s coming to the shop Sept 1!
Remember to use CARYN15 to save when you order!

Just one more day to the weekend!

And just one more book to read in this series! I can't wait for ny library hold to come up for it. Even though I own a physical copy of the book, ebooks and audiobooks are so much easier for me to get through right now. What format do you prefer to read?

I had to go back into the office for the first day in 3 months today. It was really nice to see all my coworkers again, but I must admit that I didn't get much done. I'm sure it will take some time to get back into the swing of things.

“Does this smell like paprika or gunpowder to you?”

^^ one of the best scenes ever.
As well as being my all time favorite series, the Jackaby series covers are literally to die for. 😍😍😍😍 Seriously I don’t think there’s a way to take a bad picture of these books. 💙

I'm so glad to finally have this series completed. Jackaby is one of those series that I scream about a lot, and for good reason. It has everything you could ask for. Strong world building, subtle romance, strong females and males, magic, fantasy, and friendship.
.
Now I need to send Dire King off to get signed. XD
.
QotD: I know I do this a lot, but shoutout your favorite book that's not on bookstagram!
.
AotD: Redwall and Star Wars! I've only ever seen one person post Redwall photos and maybe two people post Star Wars Pre-Disney EU novels (shoutout to @whenallotherlightsgoout for doing that!).

“Well, what are you waiting for, then? Get your coat Miss Rook. There’s adventure to be had!”
.
Bookish friends are the best friends because you can cosplay with each other for a big photo shoot. Obviously we had to do a Jackaby shoot seeing how we’re all obsessed, and I think the character personalities match up with our real ones quite nicely. I love my ghostly Jenny dress, Annie (@sheofthedreaming) made a very quirky Jackaby (hat and all) and Harlee Ann (@bookishtypewriters) totally rocked the Abigail look. 💙🧡💜
I normally say I can’t choose a favorite book but rereading Jackaby made me realize that this is my favorite series. I’m constantly recommending it and one day I shall meet William Ritter somehow and get my books signed and thank him for writing such an amazing story. .
What’s your all time favorite series?

“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. 😍😍

Abigail Rook bookmark from @wethedreamingdesigns.
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* 🦆 .
