What do you think this means? Could it be that no matter how old you are you can still have dreams, you can still reach for that certain something you've always wanted? Because maybe fairytales do come true… What say you?

Happy Sunday and also Happy Father’s Day! I talked to my dad this afternoon, and of course he was doing all his favorite things for Father’s Day. He was just taking a break from metalwork to have some coffee and cake! I’m still working on catching up on my recommended reading list. I got Aurora Rising when it first came out last month, but I haven’t read it yet. However, knowing Amie and Kay, I’m expecting great things! • #summerreading #junetbrpile #aurorarising #yareads #yascifi #ireadya #bookishglee #bookpic #bookstagram #bookstagrammer
QOTD: Who's your auto-buy author? • • So I fell headfirst into another Kristoff/Kaufman book. Aurora Rising was a tad hard getting into, but now I'm obsessed! I'm a little past halfway and I'm already dreading the end 😂 After loving both Illuminae and Nevernight, I feel like these two authors are making their way into my auto-buy list! Previously there is Brandon Sanderson and Leigh Bardugo!! Short caption today because I've had a long day and my bed is calling 😅 I've been home for 4 days now, and those days have been filled with family and visits and a party with my siblings, I've had the best time but sadly not much time for reading in this mix 🙈 have a lovely week to come!! 💕 • • Photo & text: M🌵 • • Tags: #aurorarising #jaykristoff #amiekaufman #squad312 #scifi #fantasy #fantasybooks #yafantasy #yascifi #scifibooks #bookrecommendations #bookrecs #booksinnature #bookporn #bookworm #booknerd #amreading #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksandnature #bookishpics #bookishphotography #bookishpicture #booktography #bookaddict #readersofig #readersofinstgram #bibliophile #bookstabunnies
Happy Father's Day! Question: What books with aliens would you recommend? And have you seen the new Men in Black movie? I would recommend the I Am Number Four series. And I saw the Men in Black movie Friday, so I wanted to do an alien theme for this post lol. I thought the movie was ok - funny, but not mind-blowing or anything haha. #bookstagram #booksta #yabooks #yabookstagram #booksofinsta #yareads #bookcommunity #bookworm #booknerd #bibliophile #bookphoto #bookphotograph #bookphotography #bookobsessed #booklove #booklover #lorienlegacies #lorienlegaciesreborn #pittacuslorebooks #pittacuslore #yascifi #booksharks #bookaesthetic
Picked up a copy of this at the library sale in April... I feel like I need to reread it. I Am Number Four is one of those books that I feel marks an end of the 2000-2010 YA books -- when YA was still primarily aimed at the under-18 crowd. It's interesting to look and see how themes and content have matured and grown darker/more adult in the last 8 or 9 years, and become almost 100% female driven, as far as spec-fic goes. We need more books led by and aimed at teen guys, imho -- anyone can enjoy anything, of course, but I'm seeing less and less representation for teen guys in YA... Which is really saying something, since books for teen guys have been few and far between for decades. . ((Interestingly, the hashtag #guysread has fewer than a thousand posts. Tags "girlsread" and "girlsreading" have several thousand each.)) . . . . . #iamnumberfour #iamnumber4 #pittacuslore #guysread #yascifi

Happy Father's Day! We got home late last night from vacation, so I’ll be spending today just relaxing and watching soccer with my dad. We’re talking book dads for #signedbooksundays, so of course I have to mention Isaac Grant from the ILLUMINAE FILES, who is one of my all-time fave book dads! • • Who are your favorite books dads? • • • #illuminae #gemina #obsidio #amiekaufman #jaykristoff #theilluminaefiles #getunderlined #illuminaefiles #knopfbooks #yabooks #yabookstagram #booklove #igreads #bookstagrammer #yabookstagrammer #yareads #bookobsessed #signedbooks #signedbook #yalit #bookdragon #booknerd #bookworm #bookaholic #booksharks #yascifi #bookstagram #illuminaefiles_01

I watched the movie of Ender’s Game a few years ago and found the story intriguing and a pretty good film. Only later did I realize it was first a book and only just a few days ago did I finally decided to give it a try. Once again this story proved the book is ALWAYS better.  This was not my typical style book. I’m much more a fantasy girl, but I enjoyed the read.  That said I did have a few issues with it. Profanity was used throughout and some words that were just inappropriate. Also there was some references to things that I just don’t want to read about. Ender was a fascinating character but at points almost creepy because of his plain out ruthlessness.  However, thank you Orson Scott Card because at least my favorite parts of the book were kept clean and were just good action scenes.  Ender’s Game is just one of those books that hang with you even after you read the last word. In some ways it reminded me a lot of The Giver in the way it made me think about things in a different way such as the price paid to win a war and just how far is humanity willing to go. . . #adventurethroughwords #bookishadventure #readanadventure #endersgame #ordonscottcard #lovetoread #findabook #bookreview #bookrecommandation #thegiver #giver #booksofinstagram #lovereading #kindle #ebook #readmorebooks #yabooks #yanookstagram #scifi #yascifi #bookstoread #readingrecommendations #readmore #lovebooks📚 #thebookwasbetter

New read 📖! Finished The Crucifix Killer last night (I really enjoyed it!) and fancied reading something more sci-fi/fantasy! Seen so many good reviews of Illuminae that I decided to give it a go! I’m only like 2% in but I’m really enjoying it so far! Love the style that it’s written in! . . . #reading #currentlyreading #currentread #illuminae #jaykristoff #amiekaufman #bookstagram #books #booksofintagram #instabooks #reader #yascifi #yafantasy #ireadya #yalove #yabooks #bookish #bookworm #mycurrentread #yareads #fantasy #scifi #kindle #kindlereading #lottiereads

Check me out, reading a book I've owned for probably forever instead of buying 5 more. And I own legitimate bookmarks but end up using things like this misplaced uno card.

》6 • 15 • 19 《 • Happy Saturday! How are you guys spending the day? I did some cleaning and organizing in my room today and I’m going out to dinner with my parents to celebrate Father’s Day & my Dad’s birthday later tonight! Also, just a reminder that I’m doing a SFS session that is open until midnight tonight! Check out yesterday’s post for the details. ✨ • • Did you guys hear the news? Apparently Aurora Rising is going to be a TV show! I’ve only heard great things about the book and this news has inspired me to bump it up my TBR! I definitely want to read it soon! • • #qotd - Which do you prefer, movie adaptions or TV adaptions? I go back and forth on this a lot. I’ve seen both movie and TV adaptions of books get messed up. But honestly, I think I prefer movie adaptions! At least right now I do. • • #yabookstagram #ireadya #iwriteya #yawriters #booknookstagram #booktography #booklover #bookster #bookaesthetic #cozyvibes #mycozycorner #writersofinstagram #booknerdigans #thatbookwormlife #readmorebooks #bookalicious #featuredreads #bookishpic #igreads #alwaysreading #summerreads #jaykristoff #amiekaufman #yascifi #scifibooks #aurorarising #theauroracycle

#bigbook19 Book haul • I had the opportunity to go to @harpercollinsuk big book evening in London on Wednesday for booksellers. It was amazing! The team at Harpercollins are so lovely. I came away with 13 books to add to my TBR pile. Some of which are awesome new YA books.

GODDESS IN THE MACHINE got its very first fan art before it even sold. I was moving into a new apartment and my incredible friends made this awesome art that now hangs in my living room. I’m still amazed at the details, from the fish and star above the i’s, to the first word on the dictionary page (Andromeda, GODDESS’s MC). What does “fishes and wishes” mean? Here’s the beginning of chapter four: . . Zhade hated the Wastes. At least avillage, he could pretend he was somewhere else—some obscure part of Eerensed where nothing grew and everything was falling apart—but once he left the shelter of Rocco, it was glaringish obvi he was mereish a small speck in a vast sky of sand. Oceans of sand, the First had called the Wastes. Zhade tried to imagine all the sand replaced with water, but it seemed impossible.  Fishes and wishes, the Eerensedians would say. Meaning, you might as well wish for the ocean.  Zhade didn’t believe the ocean had ever existed. . . Day 15 of #roaring20sauthormonth - fan art . .

How’s your June going? Do you set goals? . . This month I’m tracking #bookish activity, instead of goal setting. So we’re halfway through June, and here’s the low-down: . 👩🏼‍💻Scribophile critiques: 9 as of last night. . 👩🏼‍💻Editing: 3 nights on book one. . 📚Reading: Priory finished (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️), Throne of Glass, 50% done. . 📒Beautiful notebooks purchased: 2. I mean seriously pretty. Check out the peacock 🦚 feather cover. 😍 . 📸Holiday photobooks created: 1 ⛩🏯🎎 (Can’t wait for it to arrive!) Two of my favourite non-literary hobbies: photos and travel. 🧳💕 . 👠 Gorgeous pairs of shoes that made me buy them: 1. I think I’m slightly obsessed with Orange 🍊 at the moment. . 👩🏼‍💻Writing of book two: Ahem. Well, there are still 15 days to go. Maybe I need to think about some goal setting... . .

✨Q: Do you prefer human or non-human characters in books? Who are some of your favourite non-human ones? . 💜💜 . I read Memento last night and loved hearing from AIDAN again! Ahhh I swear in the last few years I’ve gone from not enjoying sci-fi, because I couldn’t relate to the robotic/AI characters, to being head over heels in love with every one of them. From the misunderstood to the sarcastic or sweet, they are all my favorites. 💜 . . . #bookstagram #memento #illuminae #aidan #booklover #yabooks #yalit #bookworm #bookdragon #bookstagrammer #bookblogger #booknookstagram #alwaysreading #fortheloveofbooks #bookaholic #booksofinstagram #readersofig #yascifi #bookaesthetic #ireadya
Happy Friday! 🦄💜 I’ve been working 11-12 hrs per day the past several weeks and can’t wait to go to sleep tonight 😸💤 I’ve hardly gotten any reading in at all 😬 but hopefully some tomorrow. If you’re short on time though and still want to find something amazing to read, I’d recommend this one. . . The Kingdom by @jessrothenberg was such a FUN read!! I flew through it because it keeps you on the edge of your seat! I give this 5 stars (and not just because it has an amazing peacock blue naked cover 🦚). . . You follow two timelines in this narrative and little by little you get clues to the murder mystery that occurs in a futuristic “disney-like” theme park where these princess droids may be feeling more than they appear (yes feeling!). I found it spooky in how realistic this might be in a not so far off future. I love how it encourages girls to think for themselves! It also digs below constructed fairy tales and exposes the moral polarity of scientific advances. Go read it! . . Also: #qotd what is your favorite theme park?! 🏰🎡🎢 I’m not a huge them park person but love Disney Land (my parents used to work there long before I was born!) and really want to see the new Star Wars park. . . . . #thefutureisfemale #yafantasy #yascifi #yabooks #newjobnewlife #bookphoto #nakedbookspines #tealbooks #yabookstagram #jessrothenberg #themeparks #bookishgirl #bookobsessed

Happy Friiidaaaay! Imagine me singing that because that’s how excited I am that it’s Friday. It’s been quite a week! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So if you’re new here, you might not know how obsessed I am with @misterkristoff and @amiekaufmanauthor‘s Illuminae Files trilogy. Their newest release Aurora Rising was probably my most anticipated book of the year (other than Queen Bardugo’s Ninth House and Cora Carmack’s Rage). I just HAD to have @illumicrate’s exclusive signed edition of Aurora Rising with pink sprayed edges. It’s just so darn pretty. I read it last month and LOVED it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also included in the Illumicrate May 2019 box along with Aurora Rising was this awesome pouch featuring Squad 312 designed by @iparwing! I love it - they all look so cute! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💭 What book have you read recently that you loved or want more merch for ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✔️ I need more merch for Renegades series by Marissa Meyer. I loved Renegades so much, and I just think more people need to read it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reading update: I finished The Bride Test by Helen Hoang and while I really liked it overall, there were some things that kind of bugged me about it. I gave it 4⭐️ and will continue to read anything Helen Hoang publishes. I am starting Arch Enemies by Marissa Meyer and will be reading it with a friend! But I just got an exciting book from the library that I want to read too - The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ June Challenges 🌊 ☀️ #illumicratemay2019: Aurora Rising and Squad 313 pouch #bookstababesjune19: free for all Friday •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #bookstagram #bookphotography #bookpictures #booknerd #bookish #reading #booklover #instabook #igreads  #bookworm #latenitereader #alwaysreading
LUNAR COURT came out on Tuesday, but I’m already to the point in OFF BALANCE (aka my next book) where I’m pausing to make sure everything is lining up correctly. My head gets really noisy and cluttered when writing—especially during this space opera series—which means at 40K words into the draft, I need to get organized again. There’s so much to this book, and I have to make sure everything is getting layered in properly. I’m going over the politics for the Aunare, the emotional state/backstory/goals/motivations/conflicts for every character (main and minor), and making sure all of that is present on the page and informing the plot. 🤯 Writing is hard work, but I absolutely love it. 😍💃🏼👩🏻‍💻 . Luckily I’ve got ABGT episode 328, a latte, lots of markers, and my Superfans group to keep me going. 💞 . . . #amwriting #amplotting #yascifi #indieauthorsofinstagram #happyauthor

I’m definitely not the best at art but I found a super helpful tutorial on how to make pops so I decided to try it out! Here’s my Jude pop from @blackholly’s The Cruel Prince. Definitely not perfect but I had so much fun making it • Do you make your own bookish pops? • •  #yalit #yareading #yabooks #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #bookphotography #booklover #booklove #bookworm #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookblogger #yacontemporary #yafantasy #yascifi #bookstack #shelfie #currentlyreading #tbr #bookishcanadians #bibliophile #bookswithflowers #thecruelprince #thewickedking #thequeenofnothing #hollyblack #theairofthefolk #bookishpops
Happy Friday book dragons!  Yesterday my copy of Memento finally arrived and I read it in an hour! So good!!! And so cool (and terrifying) to see the origins of AIDAN. I just wish it was longer than 82 pages!  On other amazing @amiekaufmanauthor and @misterkristoff news, AURORA RISING IS OFFICIALLY BEING ADAPTED FOR TV! AND THEY WILL BE INVOLVED WHICH MEANS THERE IS HOPE FOR IT TO BE ACCURATE AND GOOD! Now I have an even stronger need to read this book!  QOTD: You're can either go on a deep sea excursion (deeper than anyone has ever been) OR a space excursion (farther than anyone has ever been), which do you do and why?  AOTD: Both would be terrifying, but I'd pick sea because I'd be away for less amount of time, I feel like less can go wrong, and I also love the ocean and would love to see all the creatures there! . . . . #bookstagram #bookgram #bookstagrammer #igreads #igbooks #readergram #yabooks #kimmersbooks #bookblogger #bookblog #bookstagramfeature #thepageswelove #mybookfeatures #aurorrising #dogstagram  #goldenretrievers #puppygram  #dogsofinstagram #igdogs  #igpuppies #dogs #puppies #scifi #yascifi #ellenratemydog #yabooks
What’s a genre you enjoy reading but struggle to write? For me it’s sci-fi. I’ve done it before. There’s a middle grade sci-fi in the drawer, but it never got much traction, and I’m pretty sure it’s because the world I created just wasn’t different enough from ours. 🕶 🕶 🕶  Last night we went to see Men in Black International, and they handed out these cool sunglasses to everyone, and I could imagine myself as a Men in Black agent. I could also imagine that perhaps someday I could come up with a better sci-fi world than I did the last time. Or, maybe not. It just might not be my thing to go that far away from the real world, and I’m just a sci-fi watcher/reader. Because some of my favorite books and movies are sci-fi. I grew up on Star Wars and Star Trek. One of my favorite YA series is The Lunar Chronicles. I have an endless supply of ideas, so you never know, I guess. 🕶 🕶 🕶  If you’re curious about the movie, I loved the original Men in Black and wasn’t sure if I’d like this reboot considering MIB II was not great but MIB III was better. I actually really enjoyed this one. #twothumbsup 🕶 🕶 🕶  #mibinternational #scifi #scifireader #yascifi #authorsofinstagram #yaauthorsofinstagram #yaauthorlife #igwriters  #igauthors #writersofinstagram #yawritersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writerlife #yawriterlife #yafictionwriter #igwritersclub #writemore #lovewriting #iwriteya #writewritewrite #yasciencefiction
Happy Friday! I hope you have some fun plans for this weekend. What is one of your favorite multiple perspective novels?⠀ .⠀ I think Aurora Rising has the most character perspectives of any books I’ve read. I loved the novel but really want more from Aurora’s point of view. I am so curious about her. I am so excited for the announcement from the authors yesterday! That is going to be epic! I can’t wait for book two, but lucky in the mean time we have a few books like Deviate and Dark Dawn soon to keep us busy. 😉 ⠀ .⠀ #yabooks #yalit #yafiction #yabookstagram #jaykristoff #amiekauffman #aurorarising #bookish #bookstagram #bookphotography #book #read #reading #tbr #booksbooksbooks #reader #books #booknerd #bookishlove #igreads #instabooks #bibliophile #bookfeature #fridaypost #yascifi
Haaaaaaappy Friday Bookchums! Since we’re about mid way through the year I wanted to share the books I’ve read so far! I can’t believe I’ve read this many books and for the most part besides a small handful have LOVED them all. And I just want to give a big huge thank you to all of you in this community because without you all I wouldn’t have discovered some of these books otherwise! I think Jay Kristoff has to be my new favorite author and I would NEVER have picked his books up if not for Bookstagram. Actually I had picked them up but didn’t think they were for me but now I’m obsessed! I can’t wait to read his other books. Also cannot believe I have read 33 books this year so far... I never counted before  or kept track but I don’t think I’ve ever read that many in a year before even! I definitely think next year my goal is gonna be 100 instead of 50. . . How many books have you read so far this year, and have you discovered a new favorite author? . . . #throneofglass #acotar #nevernight #fallenkigdons #illuminae #illuminefiles #sarahjmaas #jaykristoff #amiekaufman #sixofcrows #grishaverse #leighbardugo #caraval #stephaniegarber #thecruelprine #daughterofthepirateking #seawitch #bookstacks #2019reads #booksiveread #bookspines #yalit #yabooks #yafantasy #yascifi #bookstagram #bibliophile #booksbooksbooks #bookworm_insta

GODDESS’s first meme. My friend @kelsate sent me this photo and I laughed so hard. That itself is memorable, but it also reminded me that I figured out the third act of the book while I was doing dishes. Something wasn’t working, and I’d set the book aside for a few months. Right as I was putting some glasses on the top rack, I had this absurd idea. I texted @emily.suvada so she could laugh at this absurd idea that I had, and instead, she texted back: DO IT. And I did. . .

Considered ordering the paperback to match my copy of Scythe but Scythe left me reeling so much, I needed to dive into Thunderhead immediately.⠀ ⠀ Helps that @overdrive_libs is accessible on @kobobooks devices, so I’m all set 🤓📖✨ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #thunderhead #scythe #nealshusterman #amreading #koboforma #yabooks #bookobsessed #bookbookbook #bookishcommunity #bookishlife #yascifi #yabookstagram #booksandtea #dystopianfiction #readinginbed #currentlyreading #cozyvibes

Bookface Friday with a twist! Winter by Marissa Meyer is the thrilling conclusion to Marissa Meyer's young adult science fiction series, the national bestselling ‘Lunar Chronicles’. The story is loosely based on ‘Cinderella’, ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, ‘Rapunzel’ and now Snow White. These aren’t the fairy tales you remember, they’ll be the ones you won’t forget! In the first book ‘Cinder’, we meet a cyborg heroine on a quest to defeat a psychic evil queen Levana and her Luna army. The series continues with page turning twists and turns where we see them all come together for a final stand against Levana.  #yascifi#lunarchronicles#thelunarchronicles#marissameyerauthor#cindermarissameyer#cressmarissameyer#scarletmarissameyer#wintermarissameyer
