  • Happy Thursday! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How many books do you read at the same time? I usually read two books but I’m sticking with one book. I can’t find time to read lately. I’m currently reading Two can keep a Secret, it’s definitely fast paced and I would’ve finished it by now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have a nice day my love 🤗

  • It’s finally Friday! . . I’m so tired, but I have to prepare for a writing seminar tomorrow, and I need to bake a birthday cake for my daughter before heading to bed. Do you have any exciting weekend plans? The writing seminar will take up most of my weekend, but I’ll try to squeeze in some reading too💞 . . I’m really enjoying this translation of The Odyssey! It’s sooo good! It takes some time to read though, I don’t like to rush through classics💞

  • Bookworm problems: Do you ever mispronounce words because you’ve only seen them in print? . I am so guilty of this. Sometimes I’ll try to use a word I’ve read in a sentence, only to discover that I’m pronouncing it 100% wrong because I’ve never heard it. 😂 It’s always a little bit embarrassing for me, but I’m learning to shrug off the laughter and keep trying to expand my vocabulary, even if I make little mistakes along the way. .

  • • Do you enjoy fairytale retellings? ____________________________________________ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love a good retelling and being that Beauty and the Beast is one of my favourite fairytales I was pretty sure I was going to love A Curse so Dark and Lonely by @brigidkemmerer straight away. I WAS RIGHT. I got a beautiful proof of it last year and completely fell in love with it! The characters, the world, the little similarities to the Beauty and the Beast we all know and the new twists. It was just wonderful. ☺️ And now it’s getting SO CLOSE to the time that you can all read it too (29th January) and I can’t wait! I know you guys are all going to take Rhen, Harper and Grey into your hearts. 🙌🏻 I can’t thank @bloomsburypublishing enough for first sending me a proof and then a finished copy! You made me one happy lady. ♥️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m off to see Bumblebee in a bit. We haven’t actually been to the cinema since before Christmas so we need to catch up on some films! I still need to see The Favourite and then Mary Queen of Scots is out tomorrow too, although it might grate on me that she’s got a Scottish accent because she DIDN’T. 🤦‍♀️ But I suppose that will only bother people like me who have an interest in history and know the facts. 🤷‍♀️😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Library Due Date book buddy from @melvismakes where you can save 10% on your order by using BIBLIO10! 😘 ☓

  • The boys and I finally had the pleasure of reading this adorable tale by Erik Kriek, with illustrations that are just beautiful! . . . Mika is a curious little bear who loved to play and have fun during the warm summer days but he soon learns that once the warm weather ends and winter is here it’s time to hibernate. Mika doesn’t want the fun to end and sets out into winter’s night to explore in hopes of finding the Northern Lights that his friend owl had been telling him about! 🐻❄️🐾

  • Per oggi ho un modello speciale che ha deciso di aiutarmi nel creare lo sfondo alla foto... beh si vede che il risultato non è stato dei migliori 🙈. Questi sono giorni in cui ho ricevuto alcuni ARC che aspettavo con ansia, ho terminato Be the girl di K.A. Tucker, un libro molto toccante che tratta di un tema molto difficile, mentre le mie prossime letture sono Work In Progress della Staci Hart e Gentleman Sinner della Jodi Ellen Malpas. Insomma i libri da leggere non mancano 😅. ~ ~ ~ For today I've a special model who decided to help me create the background to the photo... well you see that the result was not the best 🙈. These are days when I received some ARCs that I was looking forward to, I finished Be the girl by K.A. Tucker, a very touching book that deals with a very difficult theme, while my next readings are Work In Progress by Staci Hart and Gentleman Sinner by Jodi Ellen Malpas. In short, there is no shortage of books to read 😅.

  • Enjoy this slap of reality. Good night. . . “Men always say that as the defining compliment, don’t they? She’s a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. Men actually think this girl exists. Maybe they’re fooled because so many women are willing to pretend to be this girl. I used to see men – friends, coworkers, strangers – giddy over these awful pretender women, and I’d want to sit these men down and calmly say: You are not dating a woman, you are dating a woman who has watched too many movies written by socially awkward men who’d like to believe that this kind of woman exists and might kiss them. I’d want to grab the poor guy by his lapels or messenger bag and say: The bitch doesn’t really love chili dogs that much – no one loves chili dogs that much! And the Cool Girls are even more pathetic: They’re not even pretending to be the woman they want to be, they’re pretending to be the woman a man wants them to be.“ “Love makes you want to be a better man—right, right. But maybe love, real love, also gives you permission to just be the man you are.” -Gillian Flynn ( Gone girl) . . . . Read this book if you haven’t already!

  • 💚𝒞𝑜𝓋𝑒𝓇 𝑅𝑒𝓋𝑒𝒶𝓁💚 ⠀⠀ Enzo by K Webster coming January 28th ⠀⠀ Jenna’s grown up in the system. Forced to be tough, wary, and hard. ⠀⠀ She’s only been able to count on herself. Until Enzo. He’s much older and responsible for looking after her. What should be a job to him, evolves into much more. ⠀⠀ Late night phone calls. Lingering touches. A forbidden fire that burns brighter each day. ⠀⠀ Everything about him exudes strength. His will to protect her is more than she could ever ask for. Sadly, though, even heroes have their limitations. ⠀⠀ But she doesn’t need a hero. She just needs him. ⠀⠀ #cover reveal #coming soon #booklover #bookworm #bookstagrammer #booknerd #bookaddict #bookishlove #bookcommunity #bookwormlife #bookgram #igreads #readersofinstagram #booksofig #bibliophile #prettybooks

  • #qotd: Do you read poetry? 📚 - 🇬🇧 So far I have only read Milk & Honey and a few from The Princess Saves Herself In This One but I thought they were good ☺️ I don't fully understand the hype because, well yeah they have been good and a bit different but there are also things where I think: Is the writer being serious right now? I also have a review for Milk & Honey on my Goodreads 💫 To come to the book on my picture: A Poem For Every Night Of The Year basically explains itself: for every day there is a special poem which you better read before going to sleep ✨ A gorgeous idea which I could manage during my holidays but.. Well it is quite heavy so I didn't take it with me to school and now I am a bit behind 😂 Nevertheless I think it's a really cool idea and I love the design aswell as the few poems I have read so far 💙 - 🇩🇪 Bisher habe ich nur Milch & Honig gelesen und ein paar aus The Princess saves herself in this one aber die fande ich eigentlich ganz gut ☺️ Den Hype verstehe ich zwar nicht ganz, weil, klar die sind schon gut und auch mal anders aber trotzdem sind da Sachen dabei wo ich mir denke: Das kann doch nicht ernst gemeint sein? Zu Milch & Honig habe ich auch eine Rezension auf Goodreads 💫 Um zu dem Buch auf dem Bild zu kommen: A Poem for every night of the year erklärt sich schon von selbst: für jeden Tag gibt es ein spezielles Gedicht welches man am besten vor dem Einschlafen liest ✨ Eine super Idee die ich in der Zeit meines Urlaubs gut umsetzen konnte aber.. Naja es ist schon etwas schwer weshalb ich es nicht mit zur Berufsschule genommen habe und nun ziemlich hinterher hänge 😂 Allerdings finde ich die Idee super und die Aufmachung ist auch echt super schön, die paar Gedichte die ich bisher gelesen habe, haben mir auch gefallen 💙 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 #bookstagram #bookphotography #bookworm #bibliophile #yabooks #booklover #reading #booknerdigans #igreads #bookish #shelfie #bücher #prettybooks #bookcommunity #bookphoto #bookphoto #bookstagramfeature #bookmark #poem #bücherliebe #bookblog #blogger #booknerd #bookaholic

  • I wanted a pair of white Doc Martens since I was a kid. But I was raised by a single mother, so it never happened. I finally got them as an adult, and they mean more to me than anyone can imagine. ⠀⠀ I don’t rate my successes based on material objects, but these boots are a representation of how hard my husband and I worked our asses off to get where we are today. Every single thing we own was earned with determination and sacrifice. ⠀⠀ So, I wear my Docs to signing events and weddings. These are my fancy boots. These are my “everything is going to be okay” boots. ⠀⠀ I just wish someone told me how heavy they are.

  • There’s something rejuvenating about knowing you’re over halfway to a long weekend. 🌼 • Is anyone else out there a chronic early bird? I’ve had to train myself to not be at least 15 minutes early to work every morning, sitting in my car until the appropriate time to come in. At least it gives me some extra reading time! • I started #TheWaterCure last night. So far I’m enjoying the writing style, but I’m not totally sure what’s going on. I’m excited to dive deeper and figure it out though!

  • Remember when I said yesterday that I couldn't really get into The Binding? Well, I managed 200 pages yesterday night (I would have probably finished it if I hadn't known that I need at least 3 hours of sleep to survive today 😂) . I just kept reading because I really wanted to know what was going to happen 😂 HOWEVER, I'm still not sold for the story 🤷 I expected it to be more about the binding and books rather than that lovestory 🙈 it's not that I didn't like it just because it is a lovestory, but I just didn't feel the emotions of any of the characters, so the ending wasn't as heartbreaking as it should be. There were about 130 pages just filled with the making of their relationship but imo most of those pages were just wasted as I wasn't able to really feel any of their emotions and didn't connect to the characters at all 🤷 . I also expected a more beautiful prose tbh as the writing is just plain. So hopefully part 3 will be better and then I can write a proper review 🙈 . #thebinding #booklover #bibliophile #currentlyreading #currentread #cr #coverbuy #prettybooks #prettycover #vintagebooks #fictionbooks #bluebooks
