“There is no greater power on this earth than story” - I feel like whenever people talk about lgbtq+ books they leave out The Diviners! Although the plot of the story does not revolve around the characters sexualities, it does include a gay character and an asexual character (who is also Chinese and disabled). While on the topic of diversity, there is also a black main character and a jewish main character 😊💗 - I read the first two books last year, but never got around to reading the third. However, it was announced that the fourth and final book will be released next year so hopefully I’ll do a reread and read the third book closer towards then 👀 - QOTD: what’s a book that comes out in 2020 that you’re looking forward to? I know it’s a little far away but I already have a few anticipated releases 😂
QOTD: Why did you start reading? Who (if any person) made you want to start reading? 📖💙 AOTD: No one in my family is a big reader, but I always admired teachers that talked about the love of reading and peers who read! 📖 • I had to take a picture of the dedication in Libba Bray’s The Diviners because I thought it was a special one. 💕
In weniger als 2 Wochen startet wieder das #dickebüchercamp von @nordbreze. Nachdem ich vergangenes Jahr nur eins von vier gewählten Büchern geschafft habe, habe ich die Anzahl der Bücher dieses Jahr auf 3 reduziert. #thediviners und #dieknochenuhren wollte ich leztes Jahr schon lesen. Wie du siehst, haben sie es immer noch nicht vom SuB geschafft ... maybe this year. . . Machst du auch beim Dicke Bücher Camp mit? Was willst du lesen?
QOTD: The ultimate bookish pet peeve - cover changes! - something that makes you irrationally angry or something you couldn’t care less about? • • Happy Tuesday, folks! Does anyone else find themselves continually tricked by these late summer sunsets. It’s been light out well past 8pm these days yet I still find myself shocked when it’s suddenly 9pm and my brain is like, but it was just light out! Also, totally unrelated, but five days on east coast time apparently ruined me as a night owl. I can’t seem to stay up past 12:30am and I wake up around 7am! I can’t remember the last time I saw this many early mornings. 😅 Though I’ve found that the hour before 8am is just as calm and relaxing as the hour after 1am. So not a total loss! 💀 💀 Day 18 of June #bookreadhappyhour: I wish I had this book in hardcover. • Soooo, cover changes. Literally my biggest book pet peeve. Perhaps it’s the Libra in me? Who needs everything perfect and balanced and can’t stand to have mismatched hardcovers or to have a series in a mix of hardcovers and paperbacks? I spend way too much time being annoyed about something so insignificant. 😂 So how about an example? This fantastic series here! The paperbacks you seen here represent not the first or the second, but the third cover overhaul this series has received! 😱 And honestly I actually like all of the different covers. But the fact that I can’t have all of them in matching hardcovers is making me bonkers! And yes, I could wait until the third book and the yet to be published fourth book are out in paperback, but I’m not going to wait another two years for that nonsense! Please rerelease these two covers in hardcovers, Little Brown! I’ll just wait quietly over here. 💀 💀 #booksofbroadway: Guys and dolls 💀 💀 #thediviners#lairofdreams#libbabray#bookstagram#booksofinstagram#bookish#bookphotography#bookphoto#bookishfeatures#bibliophile#booklove#booknerd#bookworm#bookdragon
Hey hey! I recently realized I have more than 20 books to read and maybe I should chill and not buy so many books for a while 🙃 . Also, fun fact, I’ve had The Diviners on my to-be-read pile for almost 6 years. I wish I was joking, but I just never got around to it 😅 I’m planning on reading it this summer though. . What is the book you’ve had on your tbr the longest?
What’s an ARC you’d saw your arm off for? ✂️ Look who took an actual somewhat decent pic!!!! IT’S MEEEEE! And look. I pretty much think I’ll be getting every arc I please before the baby but...like...#KingofCrows by @libbabray ? Doesn’t look promising. ✂️ One. I don’t know if they are going to exist. Two. I would be way too lucky to get my hands on it because life doesn’t work that way. I’m due in December (scheduled C section because last time we discovered I have issues with natural birth), and I can assure you this chick won’t be able to read such a lengthy, SCARY novel (NO MATTER HOW MUCH SAM’S SAFETY MEANS TO ME-don’t you dare, Libba, don’t you dare hurt him) with a 2 mo old and an almost 3 year old. Ain’t Guna happen. ✂️ But then that’s why I’m saying it now-I’d do anything to get an arc of this. This and A Heart so Fierce and Broken, but that publisher likes me and pretty much confirmed I’d be getting it so easy peesy there lol. Also, like how I took my children off the shelf for this pic? My complete collection, FINALLY! They look so happy together 😭-Chelsea . . . . #thediviners#libbabray#yafantasy#fantasy#mystery#thriller#historicalfiction #bibliophile #booklove #bookshelf #bookphotography#igreads #bookblogger #coverlove #bookstagram #bookaddict #goodreads #booknerd #bookstagramfeatures #yabooks#fantasybooks #fictionbooks #ilovereading #ilovebooks

LAIR OF DREAMS by Libba Bray 3.5/5 ⭐️ ✔️ This book follows mainly Henry and (new character) Ling Chang. ✔️ My main complaint is that the plot was so so *slow*. Once the excitement of being back in this story wore out I had to push myself to keep reading. There is too much build up. ✔️ I an not a fan of love triangles. I was okay with it in the first book but I didn’t care for it at ALL in this book. The “fake dating” trope is so silly to me lol. ✔️ Overall I I felt that the story was so repetitive and important stories weren’t as discussed as I would’ve liked. ✔️ That being said the thing that I enjoyed the most was Henry’s story and Ling. I loved the dream walking and I really love them ad characters. ✔️ I liked the “plot twists” in the end, I didn’t see them coming but they made a lot of sense. ✔️ I can’t help but feel a little disappointed in this book. Half of the characters were kinda annoying and a lot of things (which will be the plot for book 3) were introduced but not explained at all, so I felt confused. ✔️ I will continue with the series although I didn’t love this one as much as book 1. #leeresvivir#reading#instabook#thediviners#igreads#igreaders#book#reading#bookstagram
How do you have your shelves arranged? . Happy Sunday Bookbirds! I am finally done with my shelves! Apparently I can’t get all four in one photo, but here is a piece! I did it by rainbow and showcased a few of my favorites and a few I’m reading soon and will probably be my favs! . This was a lot of work but I’m so happy with the outcome! I always wanted to do rainbow shelves and I finally got the shelves to do so! I have so many dark colors, but a dark rainbow is still a rainbow! . . . . . . . challenges for june 09th #bookqueensjune19: #shelfiesunday or #socksunday#bookravensjun19: characters who love books #allthebooksjune19: share a shelfie #junebookstagram19: favorite fonts #wildadventuresjune19: hanna donnelly : sci-fi
I started reading The Diviners today. I delayed The Color Purple because it’ll mark the end of #readingrainbowchallenge and #pagesforpride. I’ll save it for the end of the month. After reading 90 pages of this book, I want to smoke cigarettes and drink gin and Charleston until I drop. #thediviners#goodreads#booklover#reading @libbabray
“here is the place we spend most of our time, the library” 🔮 The Diviners, a description of a library, from a book from a library, out the front of my library 🧚🏾♀️ #book#books#reading#booknerdigans#bookquotes#bookreview#bibliophile#bookstagram#fantasy#yabooks#bookshelves#bibliophile#booktube#bookphotography#libraries#library#librariesinbooks#thediviners
Либба Брэй "Пророки" / The Diviners by Libba Bray Изд-во АСТ, 2017 г, 640 стр. Перевод Ю. Ершова Если вы любите эпоху джаза и янг-эдалт, а также мистику, то рекомендую обратить внимание на этот роман: все вышеперечисленное тут есть.

Happy Friday! Here's what I'm #currentlyreading I don't mind a little ripped dust jacket when I can get a hardcover for about 6 bucks. 🎉 I need to read this book by the end of the weekend because my audio library copy of book 3 expires next week. I have the hardcover of book 3 but want to listen to it. The narrator did such a great job. I really enjoyed the first book so am excited to read what goes down in #lairofdreams. 😍 I have two 12 hour shifts this weekend though soooooo not sure how much reading will be happening. Work is such a drag 😵 #iamreading#thediviners#bookstagram#bibliophile#booklover#booknerd#bookstack#bookshelf
