Coming soon to a shelf near you. . . #intothecrookedplace by @alexandrachristowrites, out this coming October from @FierceReads! Thank you for gifting an advance copy to me! ❧ This book is labeled as a gritty YA fantasy, and the first of two, so clearly I'm sold already. I'm always looking fantasies with a bit of bite to them and then you throw magic in the mix? Golden. The synopsis gives me ACE OF SHADES meets SIX OF CROWS vibes and I have absolutely no idea if those comps fit but I'm sure I'll find out! Is Into the Crooked Place on your TBR? If not, check out the synopsis below and make sure to add it on Goodreads! ❧ ABOUT THE BOOK The streets of Creije are for the deadly and the dreamers, and four crooks in particular know just how much magic they need up their sleeve to survive. Tavia, a busker ready to pack up her dark-magic wares and turn her back on Creije for good. She’ll do anything to put her crimes behind her. Wesley, the closest thing Creije has to a gangster. After growing up on streets hungry enough to swallow the weak whole, he won’t stop until he has brought the entire realm to kneel before him. Karam, a warrior who spends her days watching over the city’s worst criminals and her nights in the fighting rings, making a deadly name for herself. And Saxony, a resistance fighter hiding from the very people who destroyed her family, and willing to do whatever it takes to get her revenge. Everything in their lives is going to plan, until Tavia makes a crucial mistake: she delivers a vial of dark magic—a weapon she didn’t know she had—to someone she cares about, sparking the greatest conflict in decades. Now these four magical outsiders must come together to save their home and the world, before it’s too late. But with enemies at all sides, they can trust nobody. Least of all each other. ❧ #partner#fiercereads#yafantasy#yalit#novelknightreviews#goreadyourshelf

Between 'boyfriend' and 'boy friend' you see the little space that is called friend zone. Hlm 41. . [ One Thing . . .] . Romance adalah salah satu genre yang 'cup of my tea' banget. Saking banyaknya cerita romance yang kukonsumsi dibanding cerita lainnya, kadang bikin suatu cerita yang menurut orang bagus/unusual/impresif bisa jadi biasa atau bahkan memuakkan bagiku. . But guys, #jtpilb meski masalahnya kelihatan sederhana tapi eksekusinya itu loh 😃😍😍😍. . Konflik hubungannya badas! . Beda sama cerita romance yang kebanyakan 'tak terjangkau', di sini kita malah disuguhi yang benar-benar realistik. Seakan emosi dan pengalaman itu bukan fiksi, tapi real study kasus. . Sampai-sampai aku sempat kepikiran, 🤔 ini temen-temen cowokku suruh baca ini aja kali ya biar bisa ngadepin pasangannya secara layak 😂. Toh kalau di dunia nyata mereka main kode-kodean, kunci jawabannya masih bisa sontek di buku ini, hehehe. . Gimana nih Kak @ollyjayzee penjelasannya? Atau emang buku ini sengaja diciptain buat jadi buku saku cowok-cowok kelewat nggak peka yang malah menempatkan posisi serbasalah pada wanitanya? 🤣🤣🤣🤣. . Kalau dia menganggapku istimewa, adalah hal yang wajar kalau dia juga harus meluangkan waktunya untukku. Hlm 277. .

💬 TGIF!! What do you guys have planned for this weekend? 🤗 I have lots of stuff planned, including parties and family/friend fun! . Thank you sooooo much to @adrienneyoungbooks & @wednesdaybooks for gifting me this ARC copy of The Girl the Sea Gave Back!! 💕 I’m beyond excited to have this gorgeous book in my possession and I can’t wait to give in! 🤓🖤📖 ________________________________________________________ 📖Summary: The new gut-wrenching epic from the New York Times bestselling author of Sky in the Deep. For as long as she can remember, Tova has lived among the Svell, the people who found her washed ashore as a child and use her for her gift as a Truthtongue. Her own home and clan are long-faded memories, but the sacred symbols and staves inked over every inch of her skin mark her as one who can cast the rune stones and see into the future. She has found a fragile place among those who fear her, but when two clans to the east bury their age-old blood feud and join together as one, her world is dangerously close to collapse. For the first time in generations, the leaders of the Svell are divided. Should they maintain peace or go to war with the allied clans to protect their newfound power? And when their chieftain looks to Tova to cast the stones, she sets into motion a series of events that will not only change the landscape of the mainland forever but will give her something she believed she could never have again—a home. ________________________________________________________ #adrienneyoung#thegirltheseagaveback#bookcommunity#bookphotography#booknerdigans#bookgram#bookstagrammer#bookstagramfeature#bookish#bookworms#bookworm#booknerd#mybookfeatures#ireadya#bookaesthetic#booksbooksbooks#toberead#instareads#onthebed#bookster#amreading#hygge#bookstagramming#yalit#yareads#hyggelife
#qotd Have you read the latest book by @khosseini ? 📚 📚 I was going through my shelf deciding on which book to photograph next and this book stood out to me. It brought back a lot of memories when life wasn't so hectic and there was enough and more time to read. 📚 📚 What I also remember is how I felt when I read @khosseini 's books. I have read The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns and And The Mountains Echoed. All of them are written so well and heartfelt that I don't think I will ever forget them. Some scenes are so heart wrenching that sometimes I found it hard to read them. I found myself kind of experiencing whatever the characters were experiencing at least emotionally. These are not just stories. Someone somewhere has gone through all these. It makes you think about and question a lot of things. I don't think it would have been easy for him to write them either. I am eagerly waiting to get myself a copy of his Sea Prayer. Have you guys read Sea Prayer? 📚 📚 #mondebooks#epicreads#bookshelves#bookster#shelfie#bookstagramengagement#avidobooks#avidreader#booklovers#bookaddict#bookphotography#bookaesthetic#bookchallenge#beautifulbooks#kiterunner#khaledhosseini

Classificação: 💙💙💙💙💙 Resenha: "Era como uma obra de arte, e arte não deve ter boa aparência, mas sim fazer a gente sentir alguma coisa." Leitores e leitoras, eu vos apresento "Eleanor e Park", o romance mais simples e ao mesmo tempo rico que já li em toda a minha vida. Começamos pela aparência de nossos protagonistas. Eleanor é a menina mais linda de todos os livros, sério, totalmente quebrando o padrão de "mocinha Mais bonita do lugar todo". Eleanor é esquisita, ruiva, de cabelos encaracolados e cheios, sardenta, gordinha, usando sempre roupas largas, gosta de quadrinhos, um doce de menina; que apesar de aparentar ser totalmente forte, calada e meiga, esconde uma realidade difícil. A garota passa por humilhações constantes, já foi expulsa de casa pelo padrasto e teve que viver de favor com os vizinhos. Será que em meio a tantos, tantos problemas e aparência considerada por muitos como "feia" teria espaço para o amor??? Claro que tem!! Kkk conheçam Park, um descendente a coreano, lindo, de cabelos lisos, lutador e amante de quadrinhos e música. Vive em uma família tradicional e, por alguma razão, apaixona-se pela nossa ruivinha; O amor nasce aos poucos, assim como o nosso pelo livro. Aos poucos e encantadoramente ele nasce, com um toque de mãos, olhares, gestos, risadas, um beijo tão esperado. Este livro mostra que aparência não importa! Eu imploro para lerem e consigam levá-lo para a vida!! Sejam como Eleanor meninas e sejam como Park meninos! 🧡 #livros#livroseleitura#bookstagram#books#bookshelf#bookster#bookstore#reading#readings#eleanorepark#editoranovoseculo#novoseculo#amantesdeleitura#trechosemlivros#livrosemaislivros#booksbooksbooks

“Se o livro que lemos não nos desperta como um murro no crânio, para que lê-lo?”. Estou com essa citação de Franz Kafka na cabeça desde que terminei de ler (veja bem) a primeira parte de O estrangeiro, Albert Camus: . “Compreendi que destruíra o equilíbrio do dia, o silêncio excepcional de uma praia onde havia sido feliz. Então atirei quatro vezes ainda num corpo inerte em que as balas se enterravam sem que se desse por isso. E era como se desse quatro batidas secas na porta da desgraça”. . A narrativa absurda e direta de Camus impressiona, tanto quanto a monotonia da vida de Mersault, onde o tanto faz acaba virando um sério problema. A impressão que fica é que ele foi julgado não pelo crime mas pelas convenções sociais. Esse livro não sai da minha cabeça! Por favor, dê uma chance a si mesmo e leia (também ouça “killing an arab”, The Cure). Mais um livro excelente na nossa agenda anual! Discutir essa leitura no clube fez toda a diferença!☝🏻👌🏻
#themoreyouknow#friday George Macdonald 1824-1905, Scottish author & father of modern fantasy. He influenced some major names, including the likes of non other than CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien. Lewis even has a book titled "George Macdonald." Macdonald used fantasy as a way to explore the human condition. He also wrote several volumes of poetry and many non-fiction books. He and his wife had 11 children. "My prayers, my God, flow from what I am not; I think Thy answers make me what I am." ~George Macdonald~
Forcing friends and family to take book pics is part of the fun of bookstagram, am I right?! 😂 Our current houseguest played along nicely this morning when we went out for brunch, posing for this #bookface pic.

I’ve got an hour to myself right now to start...🙌🏻 Think I can do it??

Я не являюсь поклонницей фэнтези и данной саги в частности, для меня эта детская сказка осталась далеко в прошлом всесте с фильмами, но... ⠀ ..давно, в детстве, я, как и все мои друзья обожала фильмы и книги о Гарри Поттере. Когда выходила очередная, моя бабушка по бешеной цене сразу покупала мне экземпляр первого тиража. ⠀ Детство кончилось, юность я провела в Израиле, а когда вернулась в Баку, у своего жениха я брала читать последнюю часть (поэтому здесь не все книги, она осталась в родительском доме мужа), бабушка ее уже не покупала. ⠀ Жизнь текла полноводной, тихой рекой, увлечения детства остались позади, сага о молодом волшебнике пылилась в шкафу в доме у моей мамы, даже фильмы я перестала смотреть. ⠀ Каким же ударом в самую душу пришёлся тот момент, когда я перевозила к себе бабушкины книги и, разумеется, подаренные росмэновские раритеты. ⠀ Протирая пыль с первой книги, я открыла и спустя столько лет обнаружила эти незатейливые фотографии, которые вырезала в детстве из бабушкиных газет, будучи маленькой школьницей. ⠀ Теперь же давно уже взрослый семейный человек, дети которой
