A big thank you to @getredpr , Posthill Press and Patricia Chadwick for my free copy of Little Sister the Memoir. I love a good memoir. I’m about 50 pages into this one and those pages have flown by! I can’t wait to finish this one. Synopsis below. . . “Imagine an eighteen-year-old American girl who has never read a newspaper, watched television, or made a phone call. An eighteen-year-old-girl who has never danced—and this in the 1960s.  It is in Cambridge, Massachusetts where Leonard Feeney, a controversial (soon to be excommunicated) Catholic priest, has founded a religious community called the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Center's members—many of them educated at Harvard and Radcliffe—surrender all earthly possessions and aspects of their life, including their children, to him. Patricia Chadwick was one of those children, and Little Sister is her account of growing up in the Feeney sect.  Separated from her parents and forbidden to speak to them, Patricia bristles against the community’s draconian rules, yearning for another life. When, at seventeen, she is banished from the Center, her home, she faces the world alone, without skills, family, or money but empowered with faith and a fierce determination to succeed on her own, which she does, rising eventually to the upper echelons of the world of finance and investing.  A tale of resilience and grace, Little Sister chronicles, in riveting prose, a surreal childhood and does so without rancor or self-pity.” . #bookstagram #littlesistermemoir #2019books #bostonbooks #posthillpress #memoir #readabook #booksonbooks
We're ready for summer reading at TQ library  #literacy  #reading  #readingforpleasure  #bookmark  #pickupabook
Gave myself a goal this year to read at least 10 books. Now it was a slow start as it took me until May to pick up that first book...but it didn’t take long to remember how much I enjoy reading! Three books down! 🤓📚💕 #fatfarm #books #reading #read #bookworm #booknerd #fiction #novels #jamesrollins #instabook #pickupabook #getbackintoreading #rediscoverreading #letsread #2019 #goals #readinggoals #maketimetoread #dothethingsyoulove
This one is not so easy to spot!  And The Walls Come Crumbling Down by Tania de Rozario published by @MathPaperPress  In 2003, a young woman leaves home without telling her #family that she is not coming back. She spends the next six years moving from house to house and living hand-to- mouth; at first with her lover, and then alone. #andthewallscomecrumblingdown parallels three events in the author’s life: the physical deterioration of the house in which she lives, the emotional disintegration of a couple once in love, and the unearthing of #childhood ghosts that can’t seem to be cast off. Part memoir and part poetic rumination, it is an ode to love, loss and the people and places we call home.  #ibelieveinbookfairies #sgbookfairies #bookfairieswithpride #taniaderozario #singlit #singlitpresent #findsinglit #findabook #spotthebook #pickupabook #readmorebooks #readdiverse #readwithpride #pride2019 #pridereads #loveislove #booklove #duxtonpark #duxtonhill
Hey there, important question: Do you do anything against food waste?! 🌱 ° ° ° I’m not asking entirely out of the blue because I actually discovered this awesome bookstore on my way to pick up leftovers from a lunch buffet which I got using an App called @toogoodtogo.de 📲 (this is NOT an ad btw, it’s just an important issue for me) ° ° ° You can save food which otherwise would be thrown away and usually get huge amounts for little money—pretty sweet deal, huh?! 😁 Oh and to wander unsuspectingly among those floor-to-ceiling shelves filled with nonfiction books was an added bonus 📚 • • • #shelfie #booksbooksbooks #toogoodtogo
. Do you write in books to edit them? . I usually don’t, I will put sticky notes or sticky tabs in them with notes. In the coming weeks though I am going to need to write in one of my books for summer reading. This sort of assignment both exited me and makes me s little nervous. I will wonder if my annotations will be what a teacher wants, or if my thoughts on the plot are accurate, or if I know enough background information to make judgements. I think all will be okay when I read though. Thinking deeply about books and what they try to convey under the surface is something I enjoy. . How do you feel about deep book thoughts? .

"A person who does not read has no advantage over one who can’t read." I don't read just to read. I read to understand. So much so that over the past two months I've read @robertgreeneofficial book "48 Laws of Power" twice. A very controversial book but I'll leave y'all with this law which is Law 10: Infection: Avoid the Unhappy & Unlucky. 🤷🏾‍♂️ You're Welcome.  #48lawsofpower #read #pickupabook #selfhelp #power  #exerciseyourmind #motivation #inspiration

While Landon’s mind works in rules, strategy, and execution, this piece, it’s helpless, abandoned, lost, and it’s him. I paint secrets, knowing the colors will never reveal the truth. Artists are reckless, so why is it we need to be recklessly disarmed before we can truly uncover our potential? We ignore truth for temporary happiness. I can’t keep putting my life off for everyone else anymore, just like I can’t stop my heart from breaking. . . . . #footballromance #bookstagram #booklover #romancelover #romancenovels #bookshelf #bookstoberead #romance #authorsofinstagram #authorlife #bookishaf #romancereads #pickupabook #letsread #bookaholic #sheystahl #sheystahlbooks #givemeallthebooks #readerproblems #bookalicious #bookstagram #booksarelife #booksforreaders #bookme

I had someone ask me the other day what my favorite book in the Racing on the Edge Series is. While I usually say Happy Hour because it started my love for the Riley Family, this book, Open Wheel, it’s my favorite for many reasons. The story line, the characters, Rager, so much went into this one and I love every dynamic of it. I also love that no matter what their family stays together. What’s your favorite in the series? . . . . #racingontheedge #sheystahl #bookstagram #booklover #romancelover #romancenovels #bookshelf #bookstoberead #romance #authorsofinstagram #authorlife #bookishaf #romancereads #pickupabook #letsread #bookaholic #sheystahl #sheystahlbooks #givemeallthebooks #readerproblems #bookalicious #bookstagram #booksarelife #booksforreaders #bookme #racingromance
There are but a few days, that give me a few moments sane, wherein I can immerse myself in all the errands,actions and moments that make me feel joyful and grateful at the same time. . A book and chai..after a fun lunch and a well behaved boy. . Beginning to study finally for my Master's and discovering some wonderful authors along the way . For the love of small mercies. Reading  Middlemarch by George Eliot. #grateful #happylife #notacandidphoto #pickupabook #alwaysareader #middlemarch #georgeeliot #letsstudy
This 💚💚💚💚💚-rated book has been dropped on International (Book) Fairy Day at T2 Changi Airport. We hope our book fairy and book finder travel safely!  The Curious Incident of the Dog In the Night-time by Mark Haddon  Christopher is 15 and lives in Swindon with his father. He has #aspergerssyndrome, a form of #autism.

. Do you ever have an idea for a picture but never get around to taking it? . I’ve had a few ideas that I haven’t put into action yet. Mostly because I need a friend to help take them and keep forgetting to ask. . But I also really want to start taking pictures with my typewriter again. That is mostly because all of this previous week I was attending a writing camp which I have really enjoyed. I feel like it has taught me new techniques, and also helped me better understand how a novel is composed. I think at the end of the coming week I will try to post a piece of my writing. What would you guys think of that? . #bookstagram #bookstagramer #booksandbeyond #bibliophile #booklover #books #booked #pageturner #cliffhanger #read #reading #ilovereading #pickupabook #literary #literature #foldedbetweenthepages #booknerd #bookworm #bookdragon #bookmarks #bookmark #stacks #bookstacks #lostinthestacks #strandbooks #stickers

One of my new favorite authors I stumbled upon is #lisagardner I went to pick up a newer release I had on hand & realized it was a series, so I had to start at the beginning. #alonebook was published in 2004 & was the very first #detectiveddwarren novel. In this story you meet MA state trooper Bobby Dodge doing his job at a scene of a hostage situation. He makes a decision & everything changes. A Husband is killed in front of his wife Cathrine Gagnon. But when you meet Cathrine you realize there is was more to her story. Her young son has some strange illness & her father in law wants justice for his sons death. But there’s more to her, she was kidnapped 25 years earlier & suffered horrible torture. You would think this is the main plot of the story but there is more. When the kidnapper is released a free man it sets off a string of events that not only make this a must read but a book you can’t put done. All of the DD Warren books take place is Boston MA. Which for me I personally love because I’m born & raised in MA. So I know the area she writes about. When I first started this book I knew I was hooked & I binged every book she’s ever written & I’m still hungry for more. #books #bookstagram #read #reader #readersofinstagram #allthebooks #lisagardnerbooks #fan #pickupabook #thisbook #emberroserating📚📚📚📚📚
LOVE my @thebookwormbox!! This tote bag is going to be perfect for the summer!!🌞📚💜⛱ . . . Synopsis: My daddy warned me never to fall for a boy like Jace Jacobs... The second I saw him walk through the door, I knew he was trouble. A gorgeous rebel with a bad attitude and a huge chip on his shoulder. My heart warned me. I didn’t listen. I saw something protective and good beneath the fierce, tough exterior. I fell hard and fast. He promised we’d be together forever, and then left me with a broken heart. Now, ten years later, Jace Jacobs is standing at my door. Sexier than he’s ever been. Provocative and commanding. Successful and powerful. The man I always knew he would become. But I promised myself I’d never lose my heart to him again. Even time couldn’t dim our chemistry. One glance of his intense eyes, and I become weak. One brush of his hand, and he brings me to my knees. Little do I know, Jace holds the key to everything I’ve lost and everything that threatens my future. Now he will either save me, or he will break me all over again . . . . . . #thebookwormbox #moreofyou #aljackson #readingvibes #bibliophile #bibliobibuli #readingaddict #pickupabook #lovereading #getlostinabook #reader #booknerd #booknerdigans #bookworm #bookaholic #bookhoarder #booklover #bookporn #bookstagram #booksaremagic #ilovebooks #bookish #booklove #bookphoto #bookaddiction #mamaswhoread #readeveryday #bookobsessed #readingmamad #happyreading

Me too~ JK Rowling! Reading paperback books can be a relaxing and healthy coping skill. I mention paper...because it's grounding to touch the pages, smell the paper, highlight favorite quotes, fold the pages, and being able to return back to the book years later. When choosing a book to read for relaxation, consider a fictional novel that is nonviolent in nature. #jkrowling #booktime #readingismagical #pickupabook #healthycopingskills
Are you reading this summer? #lovetoread #pickupabook #lmsvheart
Four books at once? Yep. With my overgrown collection of books. I think it's a great way to challenge yourself with more than one book. Plus I want to know which books will be worth keeping.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ And of course! I had to pull out my Little Women’s book. 😜 I've been watching last years series on Amazon prime. And so far, I love it. ❤️
"One benefit of summer was that each day we had more light to read by." - Jeanette Walls🌞📚 . . . Synopsis: Amber Patterson is fed up. She’s tired of being a nobody: a plain, invisible woman who blends into the background. She deserves more—a life of money and power like the one blond-haired, blue-eyed goddess Daphne Parrish takes for granted.  To everyone in the exclusive town of Bishops Harbor, Connecticut, Daphne—a socialite and philanthropist—and her real-estate mogul husband, Jackson, are a couple straight out of a fairy tale.  Amber’s envy could eat her alive . . . if she didn't have a plan. Amber uses Daphne’s compassion and caring to insinuate herself into the family’s life—the first step in a meticulous scheme to undermine her. Before long, Amber is Daphne’s closest confidante, traveling to Europe with the Parrishes and their lovely young daughters, and growing closer to Jackson. But a skeleton from her past may undermine everything that Amber has worked towards, and if it is discovered, her well-laid plan may fall to pieces.  With shocking turns and dark secrets that will keep you guessing until the very end, The Last Mrs. Parrish is a fresh, juicy, and utterly addictive thriller from a diabolically imaginative talent. . . . #thelastmrsparrish #livconstantine #readingvibes #bibliophile #bibliobibuli #readingaddict #pickupabook #lovereading #getlostinabook #reader #booknerd #booknerdigans #bookworm #bookaholic #bookhoarder #booklover #bookporn #bookstagram #booksaremagic #ilovebooks #bookish #booklove #bookphoto #bookaddiction #mamaswhoread #readeveryday #bookobsessed #readingmamad #happyreading
