Happy Saturday! What’s everyone’s weekend reading plans? I just sat down to dig into Days of Blood and Starlight. I am really enjoying it so far! I’m hoping to get 150 pages read today but we’ll see how that goes. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Last week I went through my shelves and pulled 32 books to be unhauled. 🙊 I always unhaul any books I don’t think I’d ever read again or I lose interest in reading in the first place. I have so many unread books it’s getting ridiculous so I really need to buckle down and get rid of some. Now it’s time to make a trip to the used bookstore to sell them back. 😅

My custom candle by @novelheartbeatcreations is my all time favorite candle! It’s my favorite scent, my favorite color, and supports my favorite hobby #bookstagram. 😍I have been a long time customer of @novelheartbeatcreations and she is always my go-to when I need a custom candle. If you have a book or character you love but no shops carry merch for them then just create your own! You can use my code JESSENA10 for 10% off a custom candle or anything else in the NHB shop. 🤗

I woke up this morning feeling like death, so I've got nothing for this caption 🤷 But I loved these books, so check 'em out if you want an historical adventure set in the old west, featuring some kick-ass ladies and kissing. .

Happy Birthday Percy! A location out here was holding an event for his birthday but life happened and I couldn’t attend. Still so neat to know this series is such a big favorite that people do stuff like that! These first five books are some of the top middle grade I immediately recommend.
⚡️🌊
I don’t displays these as much as I should, but this is one of my favorite items I own. Cutouts by @mage_of_page of the characters in these books. She is a genius.
⚡️🌊
The bookmark is from @linzyafranklin that goes with her series The Storypeddler which I also recommend looking at! Ah good books being in this world just bring happiness. Have you ever celebrated a character’s birthday? My mom celebrates Winnie the Pooh’s bday every year.

In The Whole Thing Together by @annbrashares Ray's mother and Sasha's father were once married, but after a bitter divorce all they have left in common is the beach house and their children. Narration alternates between Ray, Sasha, and their three sisters, offering different perspectives on the same events as they find love, forgiveness, and themselves.

I See London, I See France by Sarah Mlynowski REVIEW
🍃
📖Page Count: 378
📆Days to Read: 2
📚Format: Physical
🌟Stars: 3/5
👯‍♀️Would I Recommend: Probably not
👍🏻Things I Liked: Pretty much the only think I liked about this book was the traveling but I liked it so much it got a full 3 stars. 😂 It was so much fun experiencing all these new destinations through this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Oh! And I liked that they were a tad older than your typical YA crew.
👎🏻Things I Didn’t Like: Basically everything else. 😂 I didn’t like any of the characters, I didn’t like the way they interacted, or anything. I wish it had been less focused on the ex boyfriend and more focused on the main characters reconnecting as friends.
🤷🏼‍♀️Overall: The only time I would recommend this book is if you are a huge travel nerd like me. It was the redeeming quality of this book otherwise it would have been a 1.5 or 2 star book if you took that away from it. So if you’re looking for a European adventure book then I’d recommend it but if you’re looking for a good contemporary I wouldn’t!

△⃒⃘ Hogsmeade or diagonal alley?
I love the Harry Potter series so much (cliche, I know), and its wizarding world & magic never ceases to amaze me 🖤🖤 Probably one of my most reread series of all time, with good reason. Also, can we all take a moment to appreciate the fact that there’s another Fantastic Beasts movie coming out?? I can’t wait to see where the story is taken

☀️ Happy Saturday lovelies! 😋
.
📘 I am on my mini vacay and having a wonderful time! It’s time to lay in the sun with a good book I think. 😎
.
🌊 Speaking of good books! I buddy read Sky in the Deep with @heyatlascreative and I really enjoyed the read! The Viking storyline was really cool, and though it got a little slow for me in the middle, the beginning and end fight scenes and action were badass! ⚒️⚒️⚒️
.
❓ What’s the last book you read that was surprisingly good? 🤓

I took today’s stationary prompt for #creativebookstagram as still items so here’s my stationary set up! 😂🌈

♠️ “Welcome, welcome to Caraval! The grandest show on land or by sea. Inside You’ll experience more wonders than most people see in a lifetime. You can sip magic from a cup and buy dreams in a bottle. But before you fully enter into our world, you must remember it’s all a game. What happens beyond this gate may frighten or excite you, but don’t let any of it trick you. We will try to convince you it’s real, but all of it is a performance. A world built of make-believe. So while you want to get swept away, be careful of being swept too far away. Dreams that come true can be beautiful, but they can turn into nightmares when people won’t wake up.”
.
.
It’s been almost a year since I first read this novel, but I still remember being swept up in its magic 🖤 ‘Legendary’ did not disappoint at all—Stephanie Garber’s imagination and wonderful descriptions make you feel as if you were in the game along with all of the characters. Although I still can’t believe I have to wait another half year before ‘Finale’ comes out; I’m so anxious to see where this story’s taken

When seventeen-year-old Reina is accepted to KEY, the King's Education for Youth, she knows she'll have to hide her true identity, as same-sex relationships are strictly illegal under President-turned-King Magnus Brighton's rule. What she couldn't have anticipated was the King taking a personal interest in her, and his plan to have her marry his cruel son. When Reina discovers refusing the marriage means a punishment far worse than death, she also stumbles upon the reason King Magnus hasn't aged in decades, and finds herself in the middle of a civil uprising.

I can NOT wait to sit down with this book! I am trying really hard to be responsible (😝) and get stuff done first. Because I know once I start it, I won’t stop! I read the first two in the series, each in one sitting. Which is a big deal for me! I tend to be a slow reader, but I just enjoyed these so much they just flew by. I don’t usually read YA Contemporary but I will have to purchase these for my shelves. I have a feeling I will definitely want to revisit this story.
.
I have already watched the @netflix original movie #tatbilb and really enjoyed it! For those of you wondering.. it follows close to the book and DOES have some things from book 2 in it. So just a heads up there.
.
QOTD: Do you like contemporary stories? YA or adult. If so, give me a recommendation ☺️

🍁
What’s your favorite season?? Mine is fall and where I live the trees have already started to change colors! I’m so excited!!

Also if you haven’t read Caraval yet, READ IT. Because as whimsical as Caraval is, Legendary is ten times more, and you can’t read this stunning book until you read the first one! 😊

I'm finally finishing this series in prep for Kingdom of Ash and seeing SJM in Chicago in October.

I've always wondered when Aelin would first be mentioned because she seems to encapsulate the fandom. Her name was finally mentioned here! I'm curious to see how other characters I know exist will enter the story.

The weather finally cleared up and I was able to take a little over a weeks worth of photos!! I've spent today being lazy and watching To All the Boys I've Loved Before on Netflix. I really love how good of a job they did with this book to movie adaptation! I really hope they make the next two books into movies. I have not read this book yet, but if you have read it did you like it?

“If I like a book, I devour it in one sitting, and then I forget a lot. It's fine with me, because I read them over and over again.” - Eliza and Her Monsters ✨📗 Oh, look at that. Eliza made it into my photos again. 😂 I loved that book and I really relate to the quote. I read books really fast and then I forget SO many details. There are books that used to be my favorites that I can barely remember. 😅 Does this happen to anyone else?

.
#flowerythingsandbooks Thanks @katiereads23 for the tag😁! 🌹First fandom: Percy Jackson 🌻Favorite book: Queen of Shadows 🌸Favorite female character: Celaena or Inej 🌼Favorite male character: Nikolai or Rhys 🌺Paperback or hardcover: hardcover!

Happy weekend, friends 💙 Mine has turned out to be super busy because we're traveling tomorrow and I'm running all sorts of last minute errands and IT'S A LOT... i also haven't packed yet but I will right after I post this. Hopefully. Good news is, I FINALLY finished a book today, it was Darius the Great is Not Okay and I absolutely loved it. 🌟🌟🌟🌟.5 it just felt so real and heartfelt, it was also full of emotions and family love and figuring out who your are and just. PLEASE READ IT WHEN IT COMES OUT IN 10 DAYS.

I'm starting Leah On the Offbeat later tonight (if i finish the gazillion things I have to do early) and this one's going to be a buddy read with @freadomlibrary and eventhough like i said before I am fairly skeptical, I'm still excited to dive into it and finally form my own opinion about it. I'm also excited to be buddy reading with Sara because this is something we've literally been meaning to do for MONTHS but it never worked out until now 😂.

QOTD: Do you do buddy-reads? If so shout out your favourite person to do that with! •

Tell what your favorite candle shops are? What makes you love them? What makes you buy a candle from a different shop?
📚
I love candles that have all the glitter. I also like shops that have fandoms that others don’t seem to have. Seems like everyone has the same basic ones.
📚
I got these two candles, “Mr Kindly” and “Convere” from @flickerwix because I haven’t seen much merch for the Nevernight series and the candles have ALL THE GLITTER!!!

So tell me what’s your favorite candles

This is another amazing duology! I say that even though I’ve only read the first book, but I absolutely loved the story and the setting! The Crown’s Game was basically a Russian magic duel. It reminded me of The Night Circus, but it was still unique!

Knowing how to smile through stress is probably one of the best things I've learned in my life so far 🌾 (but I'm still learning how to pose for pictures apparently)


1

contrary to the general misconception, perfectionism is not thinking everything you do is perfect. it is needing everything you do to be perfect and realizing it never will be. it is a toxic mindst where happiness is tied with success and any shortcoming is catastrophic. it is obsessing for days over the smallest of details about your life, your art, your work. it is becoming so familiar with the illusion of permanence that you begin anticipating your own regret. perfectionism is literally never being satisfied with anything you do because nothing you do is ever good enough.
(it’s spending hours and hours on getting it right thinking success will fill the void in your heart)
if you asked me why would i be a perfectionist, i could answer ‘because why would i want anything i do to be subpar, average’, but the truth is i’m afraid of failure,
of being forgotten.
as you grow older, this need morphs into something darker and much more harmful. it becomes a monster that dwells in the dark corners of your mind, that resides in the peripheral of your life. you can expect it to strike at night; you cannot anticipate its attacks under the sun. it pervades the quiet like a poisonous fog, and as it lingers in your head it seizes your heart in cold, burning hands.
it demands success, brilliance, because perfect is no longer good enough..
you must be extraordinary to be worth it.

Probably not, because I was too excited to even get both my hands working at the same time.

Today I am feeling very creative :)
My one friend is Turkish @semamorey and I just bombarded her today about what does such and such mean! My imagination wheels just start spinning 100mph!! Praise God! I love it!
The words and meaning are at the bottom... I believe it will add to my map or to my world building!! The spelling won't be right but I wanted the sounds to come across... I just love foreign languages!!!
Let me quickly go into creative mode with this pic....please excuse the rough draft😉😉
.
The three teenagers looked at the pollen rocks next to the cupcake. The rocks were glowing! "A glowing pollen rock can mean only one thing," Kat said.
.
Thomas nodded. "Earth word. My brother should know what it says. What are the messages inside of the glowing pollen rocks Daniel?"
.
Daniel held out his hand and smiled. "They all carry the same message! If your son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish?"

"Luke 11:11. It's truly powerful Earth Word!" Kat said. "Look!" The stones began to lift into the air and suddenly the floating rocks transformed into a school of fish. "This is impossible!" Kat said, staring at the floating teal and green fish in the air. "These are the extinct Sharahp fish that used to dwell in the Tameem Ocean. They eat a special kind of grape called mayveh and it only grows in the Belfairemm Icelands."
.
"Extinct??! And What's the big deal if they eat special grapes?!" both Thomas and Daniel asked at the exact moment.
.
"If you feed a Sharahp a mayveh grape, then they will give you a clock gear. As long as you hold this clock gear you will be able to breathe underwater."
.
"Okay that is cool!" Daniel said. "Let's get a mayveh grape and feed them! I would love to have one of these clock gears!"
.
"These gears are known as Hava Ekmeks."😁😁😉 Air Bread🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂

.
Wine = Sharahp
Seed = Tohum
Tea = Chai 😁
Honey = Bal  Bread = Ekmek
Air = Hava Fire = Ahtesh
Leaf = Yaprak (yahprahk)
Fish = Balik Fruit = Mayveh
Book= Kitap
Small mountains = Tehpey
Village by the mountains = Yayla (Yye lah) Grass = Chim

What book or series are you constantly recommending to people? 🔍 The JACKABY series is one of my all-time favorites, and I've been known to harass ... er, gently encourage ... many friends to read it. 😂 The best way to describe the tone of these books is that it's like "Sherlock meets Doctor Who." .
.
But! The ones who do read it? They become huge fans too! This year, @fearyourex, @redrchl.reads & @wordmewrite have all taken the Jackaby plunge (probably just to shut me up) and have now started recommending it to THEIR friends & followers. So what are you waiting for??? .

Who remembers these?! 😍 I see that @scholasticcda is coming out with vintage cover baby sitter club books! And a book called paperback crush is coming out as well! I wish they’d bring back The Gymnasts as I would love to finish my collection 😂

Library book stack! I have been working way too much, not much time to read, so I got YA/middle grade and comic/graphic books that I can actually finish.

So excited to announce Soman Chainani to our panel🎉 Soman is a graduate of Harvard University and Columbia University’s MFA Film Program🎥🎞️ and began his career as a screenwriter and director, with his films playing at over 150 film festivals around the world🌎 In addition, he has been nominated for the Waterstone Prize for Children’s Literature. He currently lives in New York City🌃 His book, The School for Good and Evil, follows the lives of best friends Sophie and Agatha. They live in a world where every year, two youths get kidnapped at random, one of which always being good and beautiful, and the other being an outcast. Once taken, they find out where all the kidnapped students end up: at a school for good and evil where the good are trained to be heroes, and the evil trained to be villains. But a lot is revealed about themselves when the beautiful Sophie is sorted into the School for Evil and Agatha, who has a general dislike toward everyone, is sorted into the House for Good. We can’t wait to have you, Soman!🤩💕

My lovelies! I'm in a good mood, even though it's cleaning day.
So what's your current reading? Today I paused HP to begin with They Both Die at The End by @adamsilvera. Some of my friends from @bookstagrampr have read it and they cried, I don't wanna cry! I can't wait to read, because they loved it!

Guys I am still thinking about how much I LOVED @toalltheboysnetflix! It wasn’t exactly true to the book but I didn’t mind 90% of the changes. And PETER. His casting was so perfect. I told my sister he was even more Peter K than I even knew Peter K could be. Which kind of doesn’t make sense but does to me. 😂

QOTD: Either share your thoughts on the movie or tell me your favorite book to film adaptation!

↠ “She smelled of home...as if home had never been a place, but had always been this little person whom she'd carried alongside her.” ― Celeste Ng, ‘Little Fires Everywhere’
.
.
☆☆☆☆☆/5
.
Celeste Ng’s ability to dissect everyday lives and to address everyone’s thinking and positions and points is insane—with spectacular writing and storytelling, this miraculous novel touches all the little aspects and small details of motherhood, family, love, and loyalty and weaves them all together into an utterly engrossing and original masterpiece. .
Saturday night—I’m planning on rewatching ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society’ with some tea and my dog 🖤 In the meantime, I have to go through the task of picking my next read; welcome to suggestions
.
☞ qotd: your last five-star read, and what made you love it so much?

SPECIAL POST-
#qotd - Do you believe hand written letters & postcards can convey more emotions than text messages , e-mail or WhatsApp messages? 💌
.
#aotd - I truly believe hand written letters & postcards convey more emotions than communication through advanced technology.

One day,⏳ I want to write letters & send postcards to my daughters.. 💌 Just the way my grandmother used to send to my mother.
