Today I finally started Nocturna which has been on my TBR since it was released in May. I love it when @librofm puts great books on sale. It's really helping me catch up on my backlist!
💮
So far, I'm almost halfway through the audiobook and really enjoying this Latinx fantasy world and especially the magic. Every one can control one of the four elements, but some people have an additional magic that's unique to them.
💮
Today is also my daughter's birthday (she's 16 now). I gave her a signed copy of the collector's edition of ACOTAR. She loved it!
💮
QOTD: What are some of your holiday traditions?
AOTD: We always decorate the tree together with carols playing in the background and then watch a holiday movie afterwards. This year we watched the new(er) animated Grinch movie (where Benedict Cumberbatch voices the Grinch).

Hey everyone! Are you all ready for Christmas? I definitely am. So far I’ve seen two cheesy Christmas movies but that’s definitely not enough.⁣⁣
🎄⁣⁣
To also get me in the Christmas spirit, I read Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by @rachelcohnbooks and @davidlevithan. This book starts off in the Strand Book Store when Dash picks up a red notebook left there by Lily. What transpires next is a zany scavenger hunt through New York City. They leave the notebook in various spots for the other to pick up and continue on to their next mission. So fun!⁣⁣
🎄⁣⁣
I loved getting to know these characters. The chapters alternate between Lily and Dash’s point of view. Did I mention this book is set during Christmas time? I’m sure you gathered that. Dash is not too keen on this time of year while Lily goes all out for Christmas even putting together her own caroling troupe.⁣⁣
🎄⁣⁣
It’s been awhile since I’ve read YA so I was happy that this one did not disappoint. I thought it was funny, endearing, clever, and a very sweet romance.⁣⁣
🎄⁣⁣
And yes! This book of course inspired a Christmassy tour of the city. It was a great way to get me in the Christmas spirit. I hope you all are already in the Christmas spirit but if not, hopefully when my tour post goes up, it’ll help get you there.😉⁣⁣
🎄⁣⁣
One more thing!!! I did not do this tour alone this time! I had some fabulous special guests I’ll tell you about on my blog post. Until then, I’ll share sneak peeks from my (our) tour in my Stories.⁣⁣
🎄⁣⁣
P.S. *Warning* My blog post will reveal most of the spots Dash & Lily went to. So if you don’t want to know that before reading the book, well, go get yourself a copy!😉😉❤️⁣⁣
P.P.S So what gets you in the Christmas spirit?

I can't stop looking at this gorgeous photo! - Chiara @eternaldelicacy

Reposted from @misscoffeereads - I initially picked up Caraval because of its similar setting to The Night Circus: a circus/carnivalesque affair! 🎪

They ended up being two different books despite that, but I still did enjoy my read of Caraval! I found the descriptions to be quite lush! ✨ It made me want to be able to jump in and participate in the competition myself. 😅

Also, I got inspiration for this photo from a picture by @booksolitude. It gave me an excuse to rifle through my jewellery to see if they could make nice props. She’s tagged so make sure to check out her gorgeous account!

The 5 books from 2019 I feel deserve more love:

1. THE MUSIC OF WHAT HAPPENS by @bkonigsberg - These boys broke my heart and put it back together again.
2. SERIOUS MOONLIGHT by @j3nn_benn - Jenn Bennett always deserves more hype! Refreshing how both characters were a little older (18/19yrs) and their whole life was not about getting into college or the future.
3. CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT by @brigidkemmerer - I couldn’t put this one down. Both characters were conflicted over right and wrong and I just had to get to the end to discover everyone’s secrets.
4. SONG OF THE ABYSS by @makiialucier - set in the same world as ISLE OF BLOOD AND STONE but can be read as a stand alone.
5. THE MERCIFUL CROW by @what_eats_owls - easily my the biggest surprise fantasy favorite of the year.
Thanks @amiekaufmanauthor and @themackenzilee for the idea.

Mr Crow was quietly sitting in his office. He couldn’t stop fidgeting. Every once in a while he would turn round and stare with nervous eyes at the safe. Going up to it, he would reach out to unlock the door, but each time his hand would start shaking so violently that he would have to return to his desk, sit down and wait for his nerves to calm down. Crow was fiercely annoyed. Fear of huge bulking giant had finally conquered his love for money and now he dared not open the safe, not even to play with his money.⁠
Sitting there with his head held in his hands, the lawyer didn’t see the Shade as it slid under the door. However, the sudden drop in the study’s temperature caused Mr Crow to look up.⁠
Yelping in terror, he tipped backwards in his chair and fell in an untidy heap. Hunched on top of his desk, a shape¬less, inky-black monstrosity pulsed and writhed. Extending what could have been either an arm or a paw, it offered a parchment, rolled and bound in black ribbon.⁠
‘Take it,’ the Shade’s voice whispered like a chill winter wind. ‘Take it, miserable Human.’⁠
‘Hhmpf, I assume you’re the Shade my new benefactor ⁠
was referring to.’ Crow snatched the parchment. Unravelling the ribbon and breaking the seal, he stared in disbelief at the sketch. ⁠
‘Ahhh! It’s been under my nose all this time – I don’t believe it! I’ll skin that little filly alive! Quick, you! Go and tell your master it’s here, that I know where it is!’ ⁠
The Shade didn’t budge. ⁠
‘Well, hurry, you piece of bile. Do what you’re told! Go on, shoo! Go and tell your master!’ ⁠
The Shade jumped off the desk and thrust its shadowy head into Crow’s face. Cold, fish-like breath washed over the lawyer. ⁠
‘Your master too, Human, yours too. Don’t forget.’ ⁠
With a snarl the Shade shook itself. Turning, it slid from the room.⁠

Hoy hablemos de los objetos que tenemos de un libro / serie / peli?
La verdad no me alcanzaría el post para enumerar la cantidad de “bolucosas” que tengo de Harry Potter. Podría empezar nombrando, ademas de los libros y pelis, funkos , el giratiempos, álbum de figuritas, posters, lapiceras, soquetes , velas literarias, notas periodísticas… y podría seguir. • Si, lo sé! No es bueno para mi economía (?) 😅😅😅🤦🏻‍♀️

This YA Contemporary novel is coming out on May 26th, 2020 from Turner Publishing Company! (You'll get to read it early before publication!!!) 😍📚 Here's the synopsis!⠀
.⠀
Seventeen-year-old Rose Hemmersbach aspires to break out of small town Sparta, Wisconsin and achieve her dreams at Belwyn School for the Arts. Painting is Rose’s escape from her annoying younger siblings and her family’s one rule: ignore the elephant in the room, because talking about it makes it real. That is, until the day Rose finds her mother dying on the kitchen floor of a heroin overdose. After her mother is taken to the hospital, Rose and her dad are left to pick up the pieces. Now Rose doesn’t have room to do her schoolwork, let alone pick up a paintbrush. As Rose fights to hold everything together, and her dreams of the future start to slip from her grasp, she must face the question of what happens when – if – her mom comes home again. And if, deep down, if Rose even wants her to.⠀

Q: what is your favourite area of mythology?

I specifically love all sorts of mythology related to different animals/creatures/species. For example the fae or mythological birds like the Phoenix, or shapeshifters! If you left me here I would list things for the rest of my days so I better stop now... 😅

——————————

Speaking of mythological creatures, I just finished the third season of The Dragon Prince last night and Oh. My. God. It was GOOD. If you haven’t watched this show yet definitely check it out, it’s an Netflix animated series, but it is so not a kids show! It’s dark and gritty there are all different clans of elves and human kingdoms and dragons. It’s very ACOTAR meets Game of Thrones (minus the adult content 😂) and if that doesn’t sell you idk what will. Can’t stress enough how well done it is!! Oh and did I mention it’s from the writers of Avatar the Last Airbender? No? Well there you go there’s one more reason 😍

Here it is! The audience at #YAShowcase got a sneak peek at my beautiful cover for ‘Please Don’t Hug Me’ by @jessica_horrocks
I’m obsessed with the type and the colour and the scrunched up paper effect and just all of it. I can’t stop looking at it. I didn’t have any ideas of what to expect, so it was surreal and a completely *pinch myself* moment to see this come to fruition. Thanks to everyone at Text for making dreams come true.
You can pre-order a copy on the @text_publishing website. Apparently pre-orders are a big thing so if you felt like doing it that would be amazing. Out in May 2020 💕

This book had me hooked right from the beginning! I easily fell into the world of Quadara with its quadrants and a queen for each quadrant. Each part of the land has its purpose, which creates a world you get to learn about more as you read. It's cool that this story is told not only in Keralie's POV but also each Queen's POV when needed (i.e. when they are killed). I also love how this book left me asking questions and not answering any of them when I thought I knew what was going on. The only thing that bugged me was the lack of an Oxford comma (but then there WERE Oxford commas in some places. Consistency, man. Just use the Oxford comma all the time okay thanks). #books #bookworm #booklover #booksofinstagram #read #reader #reading #goodreads #YAlit #youngadult #literature #fantasy #fiction #English #queens #royalty #murder #getlit #getliterary #review #teaching #highschool #college #englishmajor #teenagers #teens #fourdeadqueens

Have you read How It Went Down? What I love about this book is the range of narrative voices and the unreliability of the narrators giving an eyewitness account of a shooting. This book is GRIPPING, and is a great choice for your #classroomlibrary.

Got my controversy cap on and I’m ready to cause some drama in the comments! Why, you say? HayHay you’re so, like, not confrontational! Well, my nerdy pals, today we are going to discuss LEAST favorite Christmas songs. .
.
.
I love most Christmas songs. Give me all the traditional Oh, Holy Night and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing and contemporary numbers like It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. But there are some I LOATHE ENTIRELY and that, friends, is what this post is about. So here we go, my three most hated Christmas songs. .
.
1. Christmas Shoes: I will turn the radio off and scream NO NO NO at the top of my lungs when this song comes on. It is schmaltzy in the very worst way, like it’s trying to be touching and ends up being an eye roll. Everything about it is cheesy and just sad. Nothing says Christmas like the childhood trauma of losing a parent, right? .
.
2. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus: wow, lets ruin the magic of Santa and convince children mommy is cheating on daddy with Santa all in one song! A friend of mine said her 7 year old daughter heard this song on the radio and was extremely concerned about both the mommy and Santa and had ALL the questions. No bueno. .
.
3. Santa Baby: Materialistic. Borderline gold digging. Nope. Don’t like it. Nuff said. .
.
#qotd: what are your least favorite Christmas songs and why? Do you agree or disagree with my picks?

On the 1st Day of #Bookmas, Mrs. Yusko gave to me... a great list of gift books for adults. (PreK-YA books in separate post). (If you are looking for great holiday-themed read alouds for your classroom, your family, or for gift giving, stay tuned or check out last week's Friday Five: Holiday edition on the blog). Check out/download/share the lists for great suggestions for all ages! And stay tuned all week for my other Friday Five: Holiday edition videos to hear about some of my favorites from this list.

Happy Reading and Happy Holidays!
