I've been staring at this text box for twenty minutes and have come up with zip, zero, zilch.  Ask me a question! Could be book-related, writerly, or personal. Or for Pidge and Meeko, they'll take questions too  #amwriting #aspiringauthor #authorgram #authorsofig #booksofinstagram #writer #writerscommunity #writersofinstagram #writing #yaauthor #iloveyafantasybooks #ireadyalit #yafantasy #yalit #youngadultfantasy #aesthetic #bookishaesthetic #bookpictures #bookstagrammer #amreading #bookaddict #booklife #booksaremyfriends #ilovetoread #mustread #readerlife #readersofinsta #readmorebooks

👀 G I V E A W A Y 👀 One #signedcopy of ROOM 553 is up for grabs, on me. .  She went there and I’m not even mad about it. Man, nothing gets people more riled up than comparing my work to Gone Girl. It’s not so much the stories as much as the fact that I have a penchant for writing unreliable narrators and devious characters. Not exactly the kind of characters to fall in love with. Or the kind you do—to your detriment. 🤔 Anyway, those are fightin’ words @crystals_library and I’m proud of you for using them. 👏😍 . .  1️⃣Tell @crystals_library you enjoyed her review👇🏼. You should give her a follow as well.  2️⃣Share this post in your stories.  3️⃣ #tag a few #thrilleraddict friends in the comments  Thank you a million times over for sharing the #booklove  Giveaway is mine. US only. ———————- Posted #repost • @crystals_library  This morning you cannot tell that a storm is coming. The river and the sky are so blue! . This was my first Britney King book.  I have a copy of HER, but I haven't read it yet.  I think I will be doing that immediately.  I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, but it was fantastic.  It had me twisting in all different directions and I had no idea what was going on.  Clearly someone was dead, but who?  And who killed them?  I love a book where I have no idea who did what. . Don't @ me, but this book was a fantastic combo of Gone Girl and Fifty Shades (I know, I know) with all consenting parties.  I don't read a lot of romances so I don't know where else to compare it. . I give Room 553 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Halfway through the book, I went online and ordered two physical copies. One for myself and one to give to a friend! I'm so glad I did, because I plan on re-reading this to see what all I missed when flying through this book!

Thanks to Galbadia Press for sending me this copy of Mom's Perfect Boyfriend by Crystal Hemingway! Available tomorrow! . #review / Mom's Perfect Boyfriend is a quick read about the complicated relationships that mother's and daughter's have.  The book is told through text messages, diary entries, emails, and letters.  I could relate to so many scenarios and they had me chuckling. Crystal has moved home with her mother after losing her job and her fiance deciding that he needed to "find himself" by hiking the Pacific Crest Trail.  Crystal's mom is a single woman who has always relied on her daughters to be her friends.  Crystal does not want to be her mom's best friend anymore and decides to sign her mom up for beta testing of android companions. Her mom has no idea this is happening. The mix of mother/daughter relationships, farmers' markets, and an android boyfriend make for some good laughs even if a bit over the top and ridiculous at times. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ . . . #momsperfectboyfriend #crystalhemmingway #galbadiapress #bookrecommendation #bookreview #bookstagram #whyiread #booksharks #bookshivers #booksaremyfriends #bookstagrammer #bookishgirl #bookworm #bibliophile #igreads #booklover #booknerd #romcombooks #epistolaryfiction
I spent a couple hours of my Sunday at my favorite coffee shop reading. It was so relaxing to not be rushed and to enjoy the weather 🌞 Where is a place you enjoy reading?
The Sun is also a Star by Nichola Yoon. I finished this book a couple of weeks ago. It was an easy read and it was ok. Daniel and Natasha meet and fall in love on the day that her and her family are to be deported back to Jamaica. It seems like a relevant look at the immigration situation of today. How some have going about it the right way and some the wrong way and the results and or consequences of both actions and how it affects what happens to those who had no choice. (Not trying to be political in this post at all just stating realities for many)There were many side stories on how other people’s lives change after their experience of meeting Daniel and Natasha. Like I said it was ok. Probably not one I’d ever have to read again and probably will not see the movie either.  #vacationreading #vacationread #instabooks #bookworm #booknerd #books #reading #fiction #bookshop #bookaddict #booksarelife #booksaremyfriends #booksarecool #booksaremyescape #booksaremyhappyplace #instabookslovers #bookstagram #bookshelf #readingisfundamental #booksaremagic #bookstore  #bookshelfie #booksaremypassion #booksofinstagram #movietiein

Front Desk by Kelly Yang. I read this a few months ago. I loved this middle grade book! It was really touching and about an immigrant family moving into a hotel and working there as well. The protagonist Mia Tang shows immense responsibility and compassion for helping out her family by working at the motel. I loved Kelly Yang’s style of writing because she really crafted a headstrong lead female character that any person reading this book (especially children) would admire and look up to for her courage and confidence. She tackles issues such as race, ignorance, and open-mindedness toward differing perspectives. This book also celebrates friendship and family so much. It was a fresh idea and I’m really thankful it adds another diverse book to the collection of amazing books out there for kids. This book won many awards but most prominently it was the Winner of the Asian / Pacific American Award for Children's Literature! #bookbabe #booknerdigan #currentlyreading #booklife #bookcommunity #vscoreads #booksofinstagram #greatreads #inliterarylove #booksaremyfriends #newbookstagram #bookphotography #bookaddict #readersofig #bookhoarder #readmorebooks #bookworld #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookish #alwaysreading #bookaddiction #weneeddiversebooks
What was your last 5 star read? {unbezahlte Werbung}  I finished »The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair« by Joël Dicker yesterday and oh my goodness what a book! I don’t think I ever flew through a 700 pages book that fast, it was such a page turner! A five star read for sure. ☺️🌟 Have you read any books by Joël Dicker? . . Welchem Buch habt ihr zuletzt fünf Sterne gegeben?  Ich habe gestern »Die Wahrheit über den Fall Harry Quebert« von Joël Dicker beendet und es war einfach phänomenal! Die 700 Seiten sind nur so dahingeflogen! Einfach nur wow! Auf jeden Fall ein 5-Sterne-Buch! 🌟☺️ Habt ihr schon mal ein Buch von Joël Dicker gelesen?
‘An American marriage’ by Tayari Jones. Three first person narratives to describe a story of wrongful incarceration and its consequences in the lives of an Afro-American couple Roy and Celestial. We also have ‘Andre’ in the love triangle.  I am out of words to praise the author’s way of presenting a beautiful story with flawed characters. You just can’t take sides. Be it Roy’s story of how he suffers after his wrongful conviction, his relationship at stake for the next uncertain 12 years in prison or Celestial’s way of dealing with situations that affected their marriage. The story is honest, straight and kept simple. I wept along with Roy and Celestial while I read the letters they exchanged during Roy’s prison term.  Those letters were personal but somehow reflected the complexities of contemporary Afro-American culture. I really loved the ending of the story. Not a typical happily ever after love story. But I loved how all the major characters learnt endurance and accepted that relationships can be very intricate and not always simple. . . . #currentlyreading #reader #reading #alwaysreading #books #bookblog #bookblogger #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramindia #weekendreadingwithsonam #shelf #bookshelf #wordsofwisdom #readersofinstagram #booklove #bookworm #bibliophile #bookstoread #ilovereading #ilovebooks #bookgram #readinglife #booknerd #bookish #booksonbooksonbooks #booksaremylife #booksaremyfriends #bookstagrammersunite

🎤🎶🎵Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid🎵🎶🎤 I loved this book. Taylor Jenkins Reid blew me away with this. This is one of those extremely remarkable moments in which I marvel at the author’s craft. This book encapsulates the chronicles of Daisy Jones & The Six, one the biggest (fictional) rock bands of the seventies. The book uses a unique oral history or interview format. It was a really fresh and unique way to tell a story. It was really incredible reading this book for the first time and taking it all in. Taylor Jenkins Reid made this book so infectious and intoxicating. I loved the way this book was written. . To me, this is an unforgettable and intimate story. It really takes skill and passion to create authenticity of voice for each character in this interview format and continuously and effortlessly draw the reader in. I’m thinking metacognitively about the book & the dynamism of how each character reflected on past events as well as the author’s seamless ability to make all of these past events feel so present, alive, engaging, and maintain having such a good heart and sense of humor too. These characters will definitely linger in my mind. As I was reading the book, it also made me curious about artist’s trajectory & dynamics of different bands I enjoy and how significant each member is. I’m thankful to have read this book. I’m excited to read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo in a few weeks as well. Taylor Jenkins Reid, I am absolutely sold 😍💙 #ilovebooks #daisyjonesandthesix #taylorjenkinsreid  #bookbabe #booknerdigan #currentlyreading #booklife #bookcommunity #vscoreads #booksofinstagram #greatreads #inliterarylove #booksaremyfriends #newbookstagram #bookphotography #bookaddict #readersofig #bookhoarder #readmorebooks #bookworld #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookish #alwaysreading #bookaddiction
💭What is something in your life that is worth fighting for? . For June @illumicrate chose #thistimewillbedifferent by @misallaneous1 for its book of the month! The cover is so stunning, and I’m loving the yellow end pages. 🤩 . Summary: Katsuyamas never quit—but seventeen-year-old CJ doesn’t even know where to start. She’s never lived up to her mom’s type A ambition, and she’s perfectly happy just helping her aunt, Hannah, at their family’s flower shop.  She doesn’t buy into Hannah’s romantic ideas about flowers and their hidden meanings, but when it comes to arranging the perfect bouquet, CJ discovers a knack she never knew she had. A skill she might even be proud of.  Then her mom decides to sell the shop—to the family who swindled CJ’s grandparents when thousands of Japanese Americans were sent to internment camps during WWII. Soon a rift threatens to splinter CJ’s family, friends, and their entire Northern California community; and for the first time, CJ has found something she wants to fight for. . . . #illumicrate #bookbox #riotgrams #igreads #misasugiura #tbr #homedecor #farmhousedecor #bookstack #plants #cosyhome #cosy #bookishmerch #society6 #bedroomdecor #greyaesthetic #booksaremyfriends #readingmakesmehappy #ilovemybooks #beautifulbookcovers #booklover #bookpage #booksofinstagram
Book Review—Horseman, by Kyle Robert Shultz  Fantasy Western. I suppose I should have guessed that people have done it, but I hadn't...and it works! Horseman is set in a world where myths and folklore aren't just stories, but history and present-day. Without giving too much away, you'll see versions of characters like Rip Van Winkle, as well as descendants of Davy Crockett and Ichabod Crane, plus monsters and other surprises along the way.  I honestly wasn't sure what I was going to get when I picked up this book for Fellowship of Fantasy's reading group, and what I ended up with was many laugh-out-loud moments, heart-racing action scenes, and characters I desperately want to learn even more about. I'm very excited to read book two of Crockett and Crane, Deadwood, which just came out on June 30. *glances at hulking TBR list containing said book* Soon. Very soon.  #amreading #bookaddict #booklife #booksaremyfriends #ilovetoread #mustread #readerlife #readersofinsta #readmorebooks #bookgram #bookstagram #ebooks #kindle #aesthetic #bookishaesthetic #bookpictures #bookstagrammer #fantasybooks #wereadfantasy #bibliophile #bookish #booknerd #booksofinsta #bookreview #currentlyreading #instabook #lovetoread #readersofinstagram
The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton @brownbookworm. Do you ever start a book and think to yourself wow, easily the best book the year for me and it’s only May. Before finishing this book or even making it to page 100 that’s what I thought. This book was intoxicating.  Camille Beauregard is a Belle and she is able to control beauty: she can manipulate how people look using her powers within her blood. She has a close relationship with her sisters who are also Belles. They are all competing to be the favorite and live in the Queen’s palace. However it’s not all it’s cracked up to be 👀 Clayton does a beyond incredible job at conveying, building, and crafting this dystopian society that revolves around impossibly changing beauty standards. Her writing is really lush and exquisite to read because I felt really transported into the world of Orléans that she designed. The process of the Belles changing the appearances of those who request it is fascinating, bewildering, and mystifying. On top of that the author’s character development is so intricate, well-paced, descriptive, and on point.  I returned the book to the library near me and I had no CLUE there was a sequel let alone the fact that it was out already. I was so shocked to find it and it was an instant borrow. I had a great library haul today. 💕😊 Anyway...read for beautiful and exceptional writing, if you’d enjoy a dystopian book revolving around beauty, 🚨strong female characters🚨, diverse characters, to be transported into a lush landscape. #weneeddiversebooks #bookbabe #booknerdigan #currentlyreading #booklife #bookcommunity #vscoreads #booksofinstagram #greatreads #inliterarylove #booksaremyfriends #newbookstagram #bookphotography #bookaddict #readersofig #bookhoarder #readmorebooks #bookworld #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookish #alwaysreading #bookaddiction
