My tip for reading multiple books: stick to one fiction and you can read as many nonfiction as you want. ----- When reading fiction, I keep myself focused on the story. It's difficult to focus on two things or stories. ----- When reading nonfiction, I start wherever I like and get what I have to learn. There's no story to be focused on (well sometimes there is) but I do have to open my mind for new ideas to come in. When you read more nonfiction, you get more ideas. ----- What's your tip for reading multiple books in one week? 😊📚
Another series done and dusted. Alright. SHADOW and BONE trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. I might be shot by Bardugo fans but I'll say it anyway and this is just my opinion. I have enjoyed the story and its remarkable originality. What I did not enjoy was the first person POV. In saying that, I have never appreciated first person POV in novels BUT this is the first person POV I have finished and with me that's saying something. :) However the SIX OF CROWS DUOLOGY. Saints! It's absolutely amazing. I've read hard to put down books through out this year and this might be my last series to read this year and I must say it belongs in the Top 1 or 2 (deciding between TOG or SOC). If you like Ocean's 11 then you'll like this even better. The way the story was told in six different POVs weaving through backstories and significant personalities was out of this world. In fact, Six of Crows was too out of this world. I don't know what Bardugo eats or drinks but I want to find out. The way her brain works and how she was able to muster several heists was just exceptional. Six of Crows, friends. (I preferred Six of Crows than Crooked Kingdom). It's unmissable. The heart is an arrow. It demands aim to land true. - Six of Crows #sixofcrows#leighbardugo @lbardugo #bdloves#bdreads @bookdepository #bookaddicts#bookish#bookstagrammer#booklover#bookpile#novels#bookstagram#yafantasy#fantasy#series#trilogy#duology#books#read

What are you reading this weekend? ★ ★ ★ I actually finished the Darkest Star a couple of days ago but absolutely needed to take a moment to share it with you all! ★ ★ ★ After slumping pretty hard in November, December has gotten off to a much better start. I am helping myself along by choosing super bingeable books. Which is why I knew it was time to read this one 🙌🏻 ★ ★ ★ The Lux series is pretty much the most bingeable thing I’ve ever read. They are super addictive! And the Darkest Star continued that tradition. I whipped through this one in just a couple of days. ★ ★ ★ It had all the hallmarks I would expect from this series and world: sexy aliens, angsty romance, stubborn heroines, witty banter, action, secrets... and did I mention the sexy aliens? 😏 ★ ★ ★ That may not be a thing you’ve ever thought you’ve needed in your life. But you would probably be wrong. Read the original Lux series and you’ll understand. I promise 😉 ★ ★ ★ Anyway, this was a great return to the world of the Luxen and I cannot wait to see where Jennifer takes it from here 👌🏻 ——————— Please follow me: -@book_lovers_1st_club #books#reading#weekend#weekendreading#moredaystoread#betterreading#booklover#bookstagram#instabook#lenadunham#bookpile#bookstack#readinginbed#vscobook#vscocam#biblio#bibliophile#novel#vsco#read#reading#igreads#bookworm#bookstagram#fiction#yafiction#reader#reads#readers#readings 📖

I went through a magic phase when I was younger. Devouring every book I could that contained witches and any kind of magic. Who wouldn't want powers that could make things easier or have your dishes done for you? I know I would. I was lucky enough to get to read KEEPER and interview the author Kim Chance. She's a real gemstone and so is this book. I had a hard time putting it down and cannot wait for SEEKER. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 . . When a 200-year-old witch attacks her, sixteen-year-old bookworm Lainey Styles is determined to find a logical explanation. Even with the impossible staring her in the face, Lainey refuses to believe it until she finds a photograph linking the witch to her dead mother. After consulting a psychic, Lainey discovers that she, like her mother, is a Keeper: a witch with the exclusive ability to unlock and wield the Grimoire, a dangerous but powerful spell book. But there's a problem. The Grimoire has been stolen by a malevolent warlock who is desperate for a spell locked inside it a spell that would allow him to siphon away the world s magic. With the help of her comic-book-loving best friend and an enigmatic but admittedly handsome street fighter, Lainey must leave her life of college prep and studying behind to prepare for the biggest test of all: stealing back the book. @kimwritesbooks
**BOOK REVIEW** Ok so if i have to start writing about any book it has to be the "Harry Potter" series by JK Rowling. It does not matter if you are a child, a teenager or an adult you should read this series if you haven't already even if you have watched the movies!! Rowling portrays life in a supernatural realm as much fuller than life in the physical realm. Colours are brighter, people are more interesting and life is more exciting and surprising. There are characters in the book that will remind us of the people we have met like a bossy (yet caring and kind hearted) girl like Hermione. Alot of us can also relate to Harry especially with his initial feelings of isolation and not belonging, and then through to his excitement at finally leaving that life behind in favour of one where he belongs and will be happy. All in all its a must read for everyone wether you are 8 or 80! As its said "books turn muggles into wizards" 🙂 #bookstagram#potterhead#instareads#bookstagrampak#bookphotography#booklover#bookoholic#harrypotter#bookshelfie#bookpile#reader#bookworm#hogwarts#wizards#magic

Rozwietlona jama. Dziennik sanatoryjny jest książką, która powstawała w trudnych dla autora warunkach. Przykuty do łóżka z powodu choroby Potta, czyli gruźlicy kręgosłupa, zaledwie dwudziestokilkuletni Max Blecher, musiał żyć ze świadomością, iż schorzenie, na które cierpi nie tylko w znacznym stopniu ogranicza go jako człowieka ( pacjenci unieruchamiani byli w gipsowych opatrunkach, uniemożliwiających swobodne poruszanie się), ale jest przede wszystkim bezwzględnym wyrokiem – choroba ta była nieuleczalna, prędzej czy później prowadziła do śmierci pacjenta. Wiedza ta istotnie wpłynęła na dzieło młodego pisarza. To książka o wszystkich utraconych szansach, które odebrała rumuńskiemu prozaikowi straszna choroba. Blecher w sugestywnych obrazach ilustruje wszystko to, z czego zmuszony został zrezygnować, a co, wspólnie z innymi, przebywającymi w sanatorium chorymi usilnie pragnie zatrzymać i udokumentować. Niewinne romanse czy wesoła zabawa karnawałowa – nawet śmiertelna choroba nie jest w stanie zatrzymać marzeń o normalnym życiu. (…) śnić i przeżywać to jedno i to samo. Marzenia te splatają się tutaj z dokuczliwą i dotkliwą prozą życia. Dziennik ten jest pasmem kadrów, zaobserwowanych, wyrwanych i uchwyconych z ciągu bolesnych zdarzeń. Jedne są głęboko naturalistyczne, inne zjawiskowo oniryczne, a nawet surrealistyczne, jeszcze inne czysto refleksyjne. Każde jedno jednak przepełnione jest emocjami. Ból i udręka, jakie znosić musi ciało, niepewność i smutek, z którym walczy umysł oraz usilna próba czerpania radości z każdej chwili. Blecher w sposób wymowny oddziałuje na wyobraźnię, pokazując jak żyć i cieszyć się z każdej pozostałej chwili. Jak sam jednak przyznaje: (…) nie piszę tej książki ani dla komfortu mojej duszy, ani dla komfortu czytelnika. Cd. ⤵️
