I wish I had not coloured the background. Also the lettering is so inconsistent? Also idk. Also this is the 5 (?) hour version. Swipe for the 5 minute version and also the not orange one. #art #fanart #theprioryoftheorangetree #dragon
Since we're over halfway through 2019 (how crazy is that?), I thought I'd share my favourite books of the year so far!  These are all the books that I have given 5 stars to this far, and each and every one of them is truly incredible and one that I highly recommend!  The Knife of Never Letting Go in particular was amazing, and became my new favourite book of all time, with the series coming in my top 3 favourite series of all time!  What's the best book you've read so far this year?
What's your most recent book purchase? 🏵️ 🏵️ I just bought this book yesterday. It's so big, I'm to scared to read it..... But it's so pretty, it's probably one of my favourite book covers. 🏵️ 🏵️ 🏵️ 🏵️ #bookstagram #bookphotography #book #orange #candle #bookishcandle #instabook #nerd #geek #literature #bibliophile #book #theprioryoftheorangetree #samanthashannon #booklover #booknerd #bookaholic #bookish #bookworm #bookstagrammer #bookhoarder #black #flowers

"The dragons watched her. It was said they could see the deepest secrets of a soul, for human beings were made of water, and all water was theirs." - The Priory of the Orange Tree, Samantha Shannon 🍊 I finished Priory the other day and ahhh it was so good! I usually don't really read these big, intense epic high fantasy books. Partly because almost all famous books of that genre are written by men and I don't read a lot of books by men, but in comes Samantha Shannon with this epic fantasy of dragons and magic and Queens, that's also feminist and queer and diverse, and I obviously couldn't resist that. I was excited for Priory before I even knew what it was about, just because I thought the title was cool, and the more I heard of it the more excited I got, and it totally lived up to all my expectations. Samantha Shannon has created such a lush and vivid world inhabited by amazing, morally grey characters. Even though this book is looooong it never felt boring or draggy to me, I honestly almost wished it was longer so I could keep reading. I had a few problems with it though. The biggest was that the ending felt a bit rushed and a liiiiiitle underwhelming after all the buildup. I also thought that the book was pretty unevenly divided between its four POV characters. It's very clear that Ead was the main-main character, and the rest were more like supporting main characters. I think almost half the book was from her POV. Technically, I didn't really mind because Ead was definitely my favourite character to follow, but I struggled to really connect to some of the other characters, especially Tané, since she had few and short chapters and her story was very slow up until the last 200 pages. But over all, this book was epic and fantastic and magical and I really hope Samantha will write more books set in this world, because I can't wait to go back 🧡🍊🐉🌊 ▪️ #unitedbookstagram #lgbtqbooks #theprioryoftheorangetree #samanthashannon #tpotot #bookquotes

I was tagged to kind of join in with the #taylorswiftbooktag by @lifewithallthebooks • Red (a book with a red cover) - I chose Simon Vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda • Wildest Dreams (a book that made you feel gloomy before the end) - Definitely The Hunger Games and The Queen Of The Tearling series. • I Knew You Were Trouble (a book with a bad guy you couldn’t help but love) - for me that was Marcella from Vengeful. • Love Story ( ma book with forbidden love) - The All Souls Trilogy and The Binding both had fabulous love stories. • Everything Has Changed (a character that goes through extensive development) - I chose Diana Bishop from the All Souls Trilogy. At the start she is a timid woman who just wants to ignore her powers and at the end let me tell you she is a qweeeeeen my dudes. Read this series! • Innocent (a book that someone ruined the end of) - no one has ruined a book for me yet . • You Belong With Me (anticipated book release) - Ninth House, The Starless Sea, Dark Dawn, Queen Of Nothing, Serpent and Dove, Tidelands, Winterwood and Vow Of Thieves. • Blank Space (a book you recently read but are already addicted to) - The Ruin of Kings. So so good. • Look What You Made Me Do (most outrageous thing you’ve done for something bookish related) - probably just spending all the monies on books 🤷🏻‍♀️ • Shake It Off (a book you like but is mostly hated) - this is the second photo. I don’t know if they’re all just disliked but I have yet to see more positive than negative comments on these.  I’ll tag some lovely people who I think would enjoy this! ——————————————— #bookstagram #bookworm #booknerd #bookstack #bookrecommendations #simonvsthehomosapiensagenda #thehungergames #thequeenofthetearling #vengeful #theallsoulstrilogy #thebinding #theruinofkings #rayneanddelilahsmidnitematinee #furyborn #theprioryoftheorangetree

There’s a full review on my blog about this epic fantasy, but briefly I will say it is beautifully written, but the length doesn’t quite deliver due to the lackluster climax.

I spoiled you the other day with a full picture of Roxy, should’ve teased you with this one instead first 😂 LOOK AT THEM PAWSIES 🐾 . As she’s so god damn photogenic I’m going to try and add her to my pictures more often now. Fingers crossed she cooperates 😂 . If you take pics with pets, how do you get them to work with you? Or do you just place books next to them and hope for the best? 😂 that’s what I usually do 😂 . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #theprioryoftheorangetree #samanthashannon #booksandcandles #booksandcats #petsofinsta #bookworm #minaloen #suvelugemine #rahvaraamat #bookhoarder #bookish #bookaholic
So far I am really enjoying The Priory of the Orange Tree! It’s been so long since I’ve immersed myself in a fantasy land and I am loving it. Unsure why or when I began to stray from the genre. But I’m BACK. I’m only like 120 pages in but I already feel like I want to go and read more fantasy after this. . Shannon crafts some stunning imagery in this too. There are lots of characters, but I’m managing (just, I think) to keep up with them. I thought this was going to feel like a really tough read, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. . I already really like Ead and I can’t wait to find out more about her magical background, and also Tané who is training to become a dragon-rider/Sea Guardian. It’s a pretty sweet female character line-up! 👸🏻🧝🏽‍♀️🧜🏻‍♀️💃🏻💪🏻 . Any fantasy writers/series recommendations? 🐲🐉🍄🦑🐍🦄
This masterpiece of a book is definitely in my top three of the year! I love the expansive world so so much! Each country in the world is developed so well and they are all unique and diverse with there own culture! It’s a world I would for sure want to explore! 🍊🌳 The characters were so developed and unique from one another. The relationships between each of them were so complex and each character felt so real with real motivations and desires! They all tugged on my emotions and I just wanted them all to be happy. Also the tensions between the West and the East was such an interesting element that caused so many fascinating character interactions! 🍊🌳 The writing style itself was lush and perfect for this kind of epic story. I read this book really quickly for it being so long and I think the writing style helped me to do that! The word choice is beautiful and I constantly was admiring the way in which passages were written while I was reading! 🍊🌳 Overall, this book was absolutely amazing for so many reasons and it totally lives up to the hype that it has been getting. The book was so good that it put me into a bit of a reading slump; all I had wanted to do was read more in the Priory world! Absolutely beautiful in every way!! 🍊🌳 #bookstagram #orangebooks #theprioryoftheorangetree #theprioryoftheorangetreereview #books #samanthashannon
ad | All the books I’ve wanted to read by yesterday - A Memoir 📖 We all know the feeling of being overwhelmed by dozens - hundreds! - of books that need our immediate attention. I have one more term paper to finish and then I’ll try to read as much as I can but even if I tried, I could never read all of these books by the end of the month, especially with a trip to YALC coming up. So - what to read first? 📚
How is your reading year going so far? I'm right on track with my Goodreads 2019 challenge. 😊 I've found some new favourites, too, and more are yet to be discovered, I believe.  Do you have a bucket list for books? I don't, I'm in enough trouble with my endless TBR pile. 😂 Of course there are "must read" books but I've read most of the classics, both world and Finnish literature. Except War and Peace 🙈 I've tried to read it but couldn't finish it. . . . #books #bookstagram #bookaddict #readaholic #bookworm #bookstagrammer #ilovereading #readinggoals #kirja #lukeminen #openbook #avoinkirja #currentread #currentlyreading #bucketlist #allthebooksjuly19 #bookreadhappyhour #fantasy #fantasybooks #ireadfantasy #mycollection #samanthashannon #theprioryoftheorangetree

🌊 Currently Reading: The Priory of the Orange Tree on ebook & The Borribles physical book. 🌊 How adorable is this key shaped pen from the recent Owlcrate box. Visited my sisters at Hunter Springs Park yesterday & got to see a manatee so close I could have touched it. Made me miss swimming with them up the Weeki Watchee River as a teen. #bookstagram #thebookcommunity_ #thebookcommunity_challenge #currentread #cr #currentlyreading #bookish #booknerd #theprioryoftheorangetree #theprioryoftheorangetree🍊 #theborribles #huntersprings #hunterspringspark #citruscounty
So, the other day, I decided to do a shop order from @unpluggedbookbox! I was planning on doing separate posts but I changed my mind. 🤷‍♂️ 📚 I got Like a Love Story by Abdi Nazemian! I've heard some good things, so I'm hoping to get to it soon. Then, I got their wine glass that reads "When in doubt... go to the library." It pairs wonderfully with the coaster I got from @owlcrate! Finally, I got a candle that smells amazing and is based off The Priory of the Orange Tree by @say_shannon. 📚 #unpluggedbookbox #booksubscriptionbox #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #ilovebooks📚 #ilovereading #likealovestory #abdinazemian #whenindoubtgotothelibrary #owlcrate #theprioryoftheorangetree 📚 [Image description: First picture is of Like a Love Story by Abdi Nazemian held up with no extra props. Second picture is of a wine glass on a coaster, both with the quote "When in doubt, go to the library." Final picture is of The Priory of the Orange Tree with a candle based on it.]
How is your day so far?  I just woke up and am working on a new crochet project: mittens. I hope to use them in my pictures this winter and fall.  I reorganized my shelves yesterday and I think I’ve found the most sufficient way to organize them. I also added lights to them and kept the candles on the shelves too.  #bookstagram #readersofinstagram #booksofinstagram #book #books #booklove #booklover #booklovers #bookworm #bookdragon #bibliophile #afeastforcrows #theprioryoftheorangetree #kingdomofash #stalkingjacktheripper #daughterofsmokeandbone #roguewave
🧡I’m at the half way point of #theprioryoftheorangetree this beautiful behemoth is taking a little longer than I thought (though not for lack of love, and moreso my general mood rn)🧡the characters and world building are so stunning, I can’t get enough 🐉I really want to burn the #nayimathunofthedeepsnows candle from @faerietalescandles that was a part of @theyachronicles box, but I can’t bring myself to ruin the beautiful dragon on it🐉. #samanthashannon #fantasy #dragons #queensabran #bookish #bookstagram #fantasybooks #book #bookishcandle #bookshelf #bookshelves #bookworm #bookobsessed #bookphotography #yabookstagram #fantasystandalone #literaturestudent #feministfantasy #lgbt #lgbtbooks
Book 29 of 2019!  Absolutely loved it, despite its length (which felt a bit unnecessary at times) I know I will be rereading this time and time again.  The characters were so  beautifully developed, I found myself caring for characters, even crying for them, despite also hating them a little. The main romantic relationship was so tender and so wonderful, something I really needed to see in high fantasy, and something I hope continues to appear in the genre more and more.  The Priory of the Orange Tree has such rich world building, which account for some of its 804 pages, that it really would be a shame to have this remain a standalone. I don't want to have to leave this world forever.  I'm definitely going to read more of Samantha Shannon's books!  #theprioryoftheorangetree #samanthashannon #bookstagram
A bit late but I made the Priory Candle. I feel I wasn’t around for some of the bestest releases of this year. It is available on the shop now. Topping less, cherry blossomed but Orange because its the Orange Tree after all.Luckily, I haven’t read the book yet and plan to read it while burning and basking in this one. - #theprioryoftheorangetree #samanthashannon #owlcrate #igreads #bookishcandle #literarycandle #bookish #booksleeves #bookishcandleshop

We've teamed up with Bloomsbury for #bookfairieswithpride and have left a copy of @say_shannon The Priory of the Orange Tree on the book swap shelf @macrobertartscentre @universityofstirling  Will you be the lucky finder?  A world divided. A queendom without an heir. An ancient enemy awakens.  The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction—but assassins are getting closer to her door.  Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic.  Across the dark sea, Tané has trained all her life to be a dragonrider, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel.  Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.  #ibelieveinbookfairies #pride2019 #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #love #pridefestival #prideevents #lovepride #instabooks #sharetheloveofreading #lovebooks #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #stirling #igstiruni  #universityofstirling #uofstirling #samanthashannon #theprioryoftheorangetree #bloomsburypublishing
What are you currently reading? I’m still reading The Song Rising (sigh) this book is taking me forever 😭 but I really want to move onto The Priory of the Orange Tree 😂 .. #theprioryoftheorangetree #samanthashannon #thesongrising #theboneseason #themimeorder #bookstagram #bookish #bookishetsy #yabookstagram #newadult
QotD: What are some of your favourite fantasy worlds with amazing worldbuilding? 🌳 My plan was to be finished with the Priory when I post these pics but I still have 150 pages left 😂 it's reaaaallly good but it's just so hard to read, it's so heavy that I need it to rest against some surface 😂 🌳 #mybookfeatures #bookstagtamtopasja #booksoutofdoors #theprioryoftheorangetree #samanthashannon
QOTD: Current favorite cover - go! • • Soooo, I seem to have developed this weird habit where when I am really enjoying a book, I can’t seem to bring myself to want to finish it! WTH? Usually if I’m loving a book I blow through it in a day or two and I can’t wait to get to the end. But with the past few (non-romance books) I’ve read, I’ve come to the last 25% of the book and then put off finishing it for like 3 days. I should have finished We Hunt the Flame on Sunday, yet here it is Wednesday and I am reading something else. 🙈 Does anyone else do this too? I really hope this is just a temporary thing because it’s ridiculous not to finish a book you are enjoying, right? 🤪 🐲 🐲 Day 17 of July #bookreadhappyhour: If you build it, he will come. | Covers with buildings • My favorite kind of cover design! I’m not sure what it is but there is something so enticing about a fantasy or futuristic cityscape. Put a cool or mysterious looking city on your cover and I will read your book! I really wanted to post a photo of the UK City of Brass/Kingdom of Copper editions because they are beautiful and my favorite and amazing but I decided to post this beautiful cover instead! A book I haven’t read yet. 🙈 But as soon as I get a hankering to read an 800 page book I’ll be reaching for this one! 🐲 🐲 #theprioryoftheorangetree #samanthashannon  #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookphotography  #bookphoto #bookishfeatures #bibliophile #booklove #booknerd #bookworm #bookdragon #booklover #bookaddict #bookaholic #ilovebooks
Hola~! I finally finished The Priory of the Orange Tree on Sunday and all I can say is that it's one hell of an adventure. Although, I feel like the last chapters were kind of rushed. I expected more action and epic battle with the Nameless One because you know, it's the most anticipated battle there is in the book and to me, it felt kind of short. 4.5/5 ⭐ for me. . . I started Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine this morning and I couldn't seem to put the book down! Somehow it reminds me of Britt-Marie Was Here or A Man Called Ove kind of narration. What do you think? Thanks to those who gave me a heads up about this book! I've heard so many positive things about it. . . Hope your Wednesday evening is a relaxing one~ #bibliofeline . . #bookstagram #bookish #bookworm #bookwyrm #bookdragon #ig_reads #goodreads #readingissexy #booksbooksbooks #bookporn #fantasy #theprioryoftheorangetree #eleanoroliphantiscompletelyfine #socalbooksta #booknerd #booknerdigans #circleofbookishfriends #grimdragon
My favourites from the first half of 2019! I think The Gilded Wolves may be another, but we’ll have to read and see! What are some of your favourites from 2019 so far? One sentence of why I love each book: Priory of the Orange Tree- The world was so fleshed out and the character dynamics were amazing! Again, but Better- An amazing message: anxiety doesn’t mean you can be successful and do everything you dream! Daisy Jones and the Six- everything is so real and the complexities of the novel run so deep! Catwoman- SJM’s take on Catwoman made you see the villains side and made them the hero! Girls of Paper and Fire- A lush writing style that discusses so many important topics and has so much diversity! Obsidio- The Kerenza side of the story that was so needed and the perfect ending (and also Asha)! Ghosts of the Shadow Market- You get to learn a lot about Jem and see things after QoAaD ends that leave me wanting TWP so bad!  On the Come Up- An amazing follow up to THUG, it points out the racism built into society and Bri’s fight to overcome her struggles can be so empowering! . #bookstagram #theprioryoftheorangetree #againbutbetter #daisyjonesandthesix #catwoman #girlsofpaperandfire #obsidio #ghostsoftheshadowmarket #onthecomeup #bookspines #2019faves
@say_shannon helped me meet a new friend today with #theprioryoftheorangetree! I "waste time" in the bookstore about once a week to avoid traffic. This is really costing me, so I may have to read my book outside instead. Anyway @reading_some_books was checking out Priory. I said, it's supposed to be amazing! It's huge though. Everytime I decide to read it, I think about how I carry my book around everywhere I go. It's a chunk! We swapped airport heavy bag of books war stories. We also chatted about some of our favorite reads. I can't find anyone as book crazy as me in this town, so I was super excited to finally meet someone. Hopefully we can hang out again and talk books soon. If I wasn't too creepy, lol.  #bookstagram #booklover #bookaholic #bookdragon #yabooks #yaaddiction #dragonshorde #bookhoarder #obsessed #mytreasure #booknerd #myprecious #ireadya #bookstagrammer #bookblogger #charleston #chucktown #holycity #lowcountryliving #lowcountry #southcarolina @bnmountpleasant

God, this book took my June as well as a lot of emotional endurance. And I didn’t even like it. But I did come out a stronger person. ⁣ ⁣ Okay, where to start?⁣ ⁣ There are 4 parallel storylines: ⁣ Queen Sabran is the heir to the House Berethnet. This house always needs a female heir to keep “The nameless one” in its slumber. (Ancient prophecy, check)⁣ Ead Duryan, a lady in waiting and a secret member of the Priory of Orange Tree, oathed to protect Queen Sabran and her house. (A badass secret agent, check)⁣ Tané, a dragon rider who has to make a choice which will ruin what she has always been working towards. (An insecure fighter, check)⁣ Niclays Roos, an alchemist, who I couldn’t possibly care less about. (Urrghh, check)⁣ ⁣ To be honest, the plot sounds interesting. But this book was such a drag. Single-toned characters, uneventful build-ups which lead to some unremarkable climactic events and a length of a good 800 pages worked hand in hand to make this book a tedious slog. To elaborate on the single-toned characters, this book is filled with them. A positive character could do no wrong, say no wrong, see no wrong and hear no wrong. On the other hand, a negative character is completely dark. There are no shades of grey in any of the major character except for Queen Sabran who too becomes predictable as the book proceeds.⁣ ⁣ And so unoriginal. The only “unconventional” thing about this book was that the lead characters are queer. But the writing made it so obvious that I had already guessed it 200 pages before it was actually revealed. Also, where the hell were the dragons in the majority of the book? Well, the author answeres this, in slumber, like me.⁣ ⁣ I honestly didn’t root for a single character. Their emotions, problems were not impactful enough for me to invest in. I was waiting for some of these losers to die so that I have one less character to read about.⁣ ⁣ But to give the credit where it’s due, I will

One of my most favourite books this year for a few reasons is @say_shannon The Priory of the Orange Tree. As a new reader this year with a short attention span and not much courage in my ability to stick to something so gigantic, I really thought this book would defeat me and was thinking it was silly to read such a Tome so soon into my journey but I was so gripped by the synopsis and I needed to give it a go. Anyway I read this back in April and it didn't defeat me, it was a pleasure to read and after all the names settled into my brain it was so easy to devour. Such a beautiful story with some excellent characters (Sab and Nayimathun my faves ❤️) . . . . . . . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookish #homelibrary #librarygoals #rainbowbooks #bookcollector #bookcollection #booksandtea #teaandbooks #bookshelf #shelfie #bookhaul #yafantasy #bookishflatlay #englishcottage #dragons #beautifulbooks #prettybooks #nakedbooks #bookworm #bookphotography #tbr #ilovebooks #theprioryoftheorangetree #prioryoftheorangetree #samanthashannon

Hi everyone 👋🏻 I recently have been having a break from instagram/YT/twitter due to moving and some family things going on but I’m ready to at least come back to insta, I hope to return to YT soon tho! 🐉🌲🐲🌲🐉🌲🐲🌲🐉🌲🐲🌲🐉 🌲🐲🌲🐉🌲 I recently bought this beautiful hardback cover of The Priory of the Orange tree and it’s a signed edition! And I’m so exited to read it soon! I’ve heard such great things about it 😄 have you read it yet? What are your thoughts on it? I’m hoping to get to it soon but tbh the size of it is making me a lil overwhelmed 😱😂 #bookstagram #books #booktuber #booktube #booktubers #bookworm #bookaholics #theprioryoftheorangetree #samanthashannon #bookcommunity #bookphotography #bookaddict
Guess which book I still haven’t read even though I’m positive it’s fabulous? This one! It’s so pretty. I just need to get over my thing about huge books and get started. . #bookreadhappyhour - if you build it, he will come ... buildings on the cover #dreambunnybookishjuly19 - yellow #ampersandjuly19 - physical vs. ebook ...

//What is the longest time you’ve taken to finish a book?// 🍊  According to my tracker, it took me 111 days to finish this beast, but I FINALLY DID IT!!! 🍊 I gave The Priory of the Orange Tree ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️... It didn’t live up fully to the hype for me, but I really enjoyed the dragons, the lore, and the lack of sexism and homophobia in the world that @say_shannon created. 🍊 . . . #theprioryoftheorangetree #epicfantasy #dragons #fantasy #herebedragons #finallyfinishedit 🍊 #bookstagram #read #ilovebooks #ireadbooks #readinggoals2019 #books #reader #readinglife #bookwormproblems
Sometimes I’m like, wow, this many words really did come out me.  #theprioryoftheorangetree 🍊
Nešalí vás zrak, vážně je tu další světlejší fotka. 😂 Ale musím říct, že jsem jenom při jejím focení prolila krev, pot i slzy. Fotit tmavší fotky je totiž mnohem jednodušší. Zakryjí totiž hlavně všechny nedostatky, aÅ¥ už v pozadí nebo v popředí. A čemu dáváte přednost vy? Světlé nebo tmavé fotky? Nebo je vám to jedno? 🇬🇧 What kind of photos do you like? Brighter or darker? I am definitely for darker photos (lol, you don't say, Milenne), it's just so much easier to actually take them. 😅  #theprioryoftheorangetree #samanthashannon #fantasy #flowers #flower #books #tbr #toberead #tbrlist #fantasybooks #ya #youngadult #yalit #book #bookish #bookstagram #read #knihy #kniha #bookworm #booklover #czbookstagram #bookblogger #cteni #reading #reader #bookcommunity #bookaddict #booknerd #knihomol
What’s your favourite mythical creature?🐉💛 - For me, I definitely love all the mythical creatures in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts franchises💕 But dragons are also pretty cool😌✨ ——————————————————— #bookish #bookworm #booknerd #bookaholic #currentlyreading #readingtime #libraryofbookstagram #bookrecommendations #bookflatlay #epicreads #booksofinstagram, #instabooks, #igreads #bookstack #bookclub #bookstoread #bookstagram #books #bookworm #booklover #bibliophile #booknerd #read #bookaddicts #dragons #theprioryoftheorangetree #fairyloot #dragonnecklace
"Some truths are safest buried. Some castles best kept in the sky. There's promise in tales that are yet to be spoken. In the shadow realm known only to the few. You ought to know, Eadaz uq-Nàra. You whose secrets will one day be a song." - Captain Gian Harlowe, Chapter 76, The Priory of the Orange Tree  How often do you get the courage to read the biggest book in your shelf? I was planning to postpone taking up this giant of a book from my TBR, but somehow got the courage to take it up. Though it took me a while to complete this book, it was worth it. As many have already mentioned, it somewhat filled a void left by GOT. . .  The Priory of the Orange Tree has everything a high fantasy requires. Dragons, magic, pirates, a dreaded enemy and long forgotten secrets to fight the enemy and many more.. . .  #bookrecommendations #theprioryoftheorangetree #fantasy #fantasyreads #lastread #bookstagram #books #bookish #bookworm #igreads #bibliophile #readaddict #readersofinstagram #bookobsession #samanthashannon #bigbooks #dragons #magic #bookrecs #yabooks @bloomsburyindia @crosswordbookstores @say_shannon
Good morning lovelies 💕 • QOTD: How do you feel about thick books? • I was lucky enough to win this absolute stunner of a thick book from a giveaway hosted by the lovely @booksteff 💐 I haven’t read it yet because I’m honestly pretty nervous about its size 🙈 I’ve heard LOADS of good things about it but even so, I worry about its ability to hold my attention for such a long time! I was also concerned about it holding up my Goodreads challenge but I’m around 10-11 books ahead of myself at this point so perhaps now is the time to give it a go 🤷🏻‍♀️ • Let me know what you think! - - - - - #giveawayprize #theprioryoftheorangetree #samanthashannon #thickbooks #bigbooks #beautifulbooks #bookcovers #qotd #aotd #bookishqotd #tbr #bookstoread #beautifulbookcovers #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksarelife #bookphotography #booksofig #instabooks #mybookfeatures #bookstagramuk #bookstagramcommunity #bookishgirl #bookporn #bookishpost #bookaddict #bookishlife
Slowly working on finding the best homes for my new and special books. One step at a time! * The afternoon light lit up these babies unfortunately bright, shiny, and reflective, but they're so pretty there! * As you can tell, I definitely have the next books in the Caraval series! I'll need to make room for DarkDawn, but I think I'll manage! 😉 * What 2019 releases yet to come are you looking forward to the most? I have to say, I think mine is DarkDawn, followed closely by Dark Age, which will be out soon! * How do you organize your books? There are so many ways to go about it! Let me know in the comment section below to read as I work on reorganizing mine! * * #bookstagram #booksarehappiness #sorceryofthorns #bothcovers #strangethedreamer #museofnightmares #duology #thecruelprince #thewickedking #legendary #finale #thebinding #nevernight #godsgrave #anemberintheashes #atorchagainstthenight #areaperatthegates #theprioryoftheorangetree #illumicratebookend #realitybookend #illumicratejar #readmejar #reorganizingbooks #organizing
I got a ton of amazing book recs yesterday (seriously you guys are amazing) and I think I’ve decided to make this beast of a book my next read. It’s beautiful and gigantic, and I know I won’t have the energy once I’m on deadline again in the fall, so it’s now or never! 🍊 . . . Okay, here’s another book rec question: what’s your favorite dragon book? I weirdly feel like I haven’t read that many, even though they are a staple fantasy creature. I loved all the animals in The Forgotten Beasts of Eld by Patricia A. McKilip, and I adore all the Targaryen history and lore from A Song of Ice and Fire 🔥 . . . #bookrecommendations #bookrec #theprioryoftheorangetree #asoiaf #theforgottenbeastsofeld #inpiration #writersofig #instawrite #instabooks #yalit #yabooks #ireadya #amreading #currentread #bookstagram #books #bookish #bookworm #bookcommunity #igreads #booknerd #bookaddict #authorlife #readersofinstagram #bookobsession
Hi, dearies ❤️ . Let’s talk about massive books. Do you like them? Do you find them daunting? I definitely do. And when it comes to the length of books, I guess it’s obvious - if it’s an amazing novel, of course I want more of it! Although, for example Kingdom of Ash - it could’ve been shorter. To be honest I don’t even remember most of it now 👀 that’s the problem with big books as well, I at least tend to forget a lot of stuff 😬😅 . I still haven’t read Priory and I don’t think I will any time soon. Can’t seem to get out of the eARC whole 👀 . #cats #booksandcats #reading #read #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #minaloen #suvelugemine #rahvaraamat #raamatud #bigbooks #booknerd #bookdragon #booklover #bookworm #bookcommunity #bookaholic #literature #theprioryoftheorangetree #samanthashannon #priory
