“Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow.” 63 years ago, a star was born. Happy birthday to our princess and general, Carrie Fisher. 🚀 You'll forever be in our hearts! 💙 | 📸: @muchachaylibro

This week's #GoodreadsSpotlight is Laura of @rambo_reads!

1. Which is your favorite quote?
I could pick a hundred Terry Pratchett quotes to go here but to keep it brief I'll go with:
"A witch ought never to be frightened in the darkest forest, Granny Weatherwax had once told her, because she should be sure in her soul that the most terrifying thing in the forest was her." 2. What’s the last book you gave five stars to on Goodreads—and why?
I gave The Poison Song by Jen Williams 5 stars. It was a great finish to the trilogy. I've loved all her books - she just writes perfectly crazy, action-packed fantasy!

3. If you could describe your bookstagram in one word, what would it be?
Haphazard? I don't know! It's a pretty random mixture of old favourites and current reads.

This week's #GoodreadsSpotlight is Nai'a of @nayareadsandsmiles! You referred her and we listened!

1. Which is your favorite book quote?
This is a quote that has always stuck with me, I don’t know why, but I think about it a lot! “And in that moment, I realized my life boiled down to one question: Was the wolf alone?” - A Court of Thorns and Roses By Sarah J. Maas
.

2. What’s the last book you gave five stars to on Goodreads—and why?
The last book I gave 5-stars to was Circe by Madeline Miller! It was poetic and magical, but also painful and heartbreaking at times. It left me with a great admiration for the lesser known goddess Circe, from Greek Myth.
.

3. If you could describe your bookstagram in one word, what would it be?
Worldly ( fictionally worldly❤️) .

This week's #GoodreadsSpotlight is Josh of @thatbookboi! .
1. Which book would you take to a desert island?
Oh definitely The Secret History by Donna Tartt. It’s my favorite book, full stop. I’ve thought about making sure it’s always on my person so I can be sure if an emergency happens, I’ll have it with me should I not be able to return to my bookshelf.

2. What’s the last book you gave five stars to on Goodreads—and why?
My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh. It’s been months and I still can’t even believe it exists. Surreal, occasionally discomforting, and definitely a post-modern feel and yet it’s strangely life affirming at the end. It’s the kind of queerness that doesn’t have to mean “gay” and I really appreciate that.

3. If you could describe your bookstagram in one word, what would it be?
(Very) Gay. I try very hard to keep my content focused on LGBT books and authors. Occasionally other stuff sneaks in there, but I can’t always be perfect! .

This week's #GoodreadsSpotlight is Amber of @eyre_i_breathe! .

1. Which book would you take to a desert island?
"He was the crazy one who had painted himself black and defeated the world. She was the book thief without the words. Trust me, though, the words were on their way, and when they arrived, Liesel would hold them in her hands like the clouds, and she would wring them out like rain." The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak. The writing is gorgeous - like poetry in prose.

2. What’s the last book you gave five stars to on Goodreads—and why?
That would be Never Have I Ever, by Joshilyn Jackson. From the very first chapter, I was hooked. Two strong female characters playing a game of cat-and-mouse...I found myself holding my breath, anxious to see how it would all play out.

3. If you could describe your bookstagram in one word, what would it be?
"Simplicity". I've always found such beauty, mystery, and even a sense of calm in simplicity... the charm of a rickety, old building; the way light and shadow work together to create magic; those little everyday miracles that turn the ordinary into extraordinary. I think I feel much the way the great Roald Dahl did when he said, "And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Oops...there I go quoting books again. .
