This is a special book guys, it was given to my dad in 1975 when he was nine years old. at some point he "lent" it to me and i never gave it back! i read it a bunch of times, i've written in the boarders, i've coloured in some of the pictures. it is tatty and the pages are an off color but i love it.
.
what is your favorite childhood book?

Hello bookdragons!📚✨
it’s tuesday, and that means it’s time for a review! did you guys also feel like squeaking for joy when you read about characters you know? it feels like you carry a knowledge only you know and believe. sometimes i read about characters long dead and it hurts my heart to read about their deeds and deaths😥.but it’s most of all fun when you get to reimagine characters who you thought were cruel and are suddenly kind and heroic.
.
“circe” was more of a journey than a book. there was no middle or end and never really a point of absolute tension and battle. circe went through phases of innocence, cruelty, and compassion. she grew up and become wise in the three hundreds years she lived in her island. i thought her character to be pretty sad in the beginning of the book, but after a while there was more strength than weakness and she became feirce❤️. i think the funniest part was her early motherhood and the screeching child in her arms😂. i was never not bored of her world and worries and even though there wasn’t really a dramatic conclusion my heart swelled with sorrow and happiness for her very interesting plot twist at the end. when i first heard of circe, i thought she was cruel. but madeline miller turned her into a hero with flaws and boundaries. and i loved that most of all💖
.
.
i’ll see you guys on thursday and i hope you have a wonderful day!📚✨

My family has been going to our local library's book sales and have found a few little old books. my husband and i just sorta go through all the books and pick out the ones we like best, i found this little benjamin franklin jr's almanack from 1906.

three may keep a secret if two of them are dead, said poor richard, but to-day the remaining one would have to burn up his letters and keep away from the reporters.

still true in 2018 .

Hello everyone!😊✨
welcome to the evil day of monday😐work has been very stressful and i didn’t have much time for myself. it’s ironic that i had such a bad day while the sun was shining and the pool was ready to be jumped into🏝. other than that, it’s been boring so i’ll make this short and get to the reading😉
.
i had the wonderful chance of buying “circe” not long ago for two dollars. as much as i’m for cheap deals this book, in my opinion, is worth hundreds of dollars❤️. (please amazon don’t make it a hundred dollars😅). i’m a big sucker for greek mythology and pjo was my favorite book series. but my favorite mythology novel was “the song of achilles” and when my books got lost i knew i could never replace the tear stains on the pages of that book😔. and now the same author has made a book about the underrated character, circe. from the little that i have already read, “circe” is about this weird nymph goddess who thought her life would be boring and ok. until she gets interested in humans (*gasp*) and decides she wants to be a little different than all the other kids in town. i’m so excited to dig into this book and i’ll update you guys tomorrow😁
.
.
have a wonderful day everyone!😊✨

Is anyone else super fussy with book covers? when looking at a new book i will usually research it 1st to make sure i'm getting my favorite cover and so if it's a series all the books match up in cover designs and height! i'm sure this is probably a medically diagnosable mental issue i have 😂

Happy monday everyone! i've been waiting for today to do the #bythebooks tag so here we go!
.
what book is on your nightstand: i have 3! try hard by em rusciano, three sisters three queens by phillipa gregory and dragonfly in amber by diana gabaldon.
.
what was the last truly great book you read: has to be outlander by diana gabaldon. that book took over my life for a little while.
.
if you could meet one author who would it be: probably j.r.r. tolkien. he would be wonderful to talk to.
.
how do you organize your library: by series and height (really showing my ocd here 😂)
.
what book would be surprising to find on your shelf: any thrillers, though i have some on my tbr list so you never know, might happen! .
what book disappointed you: by the time you read this i'll be dead by julie anne peter's. only because i hated how it ended with no closure but it is a really good story.
.
what's next on your tbr list: well... i might continue the outlander series, i might continue the tudor novels or i might start the red queen series by victoria aveyard. who knows! i like to walk on the wilder side of life 😉😂 .
if you'd like to play, send me a message and i'll send you a copy. thanks for reading 😊

“a ‘digital book’ can’t be infused with smells, can’t press flowers in between its pages. it can’t contain spilt tears or coffee stains. only a real book can do those things.”

They describe it as "reality tv meets dystopian fairytale"... i describe it as the bachelor meets the hunger games 😂
.
you've probably seen this series all over your feed, and if you haven't read it yet please atleast put the first book on your tbr :) i have only read the 1st book but i read it all in one go and couldn't put it down!
.
i'll be the 1st to admit i am a jumpy reader, it takes me a long time to read a book because a. life and b. i can't seem to stick to one book. it's a bad habit i am working on ;)

Qotd: what is that one thing you wish to remove from your country?
.
.
aotd: the recent r**e cases have shook me to the core. it’s so sad that even after 70 years of independence, indian women and girls are not at all safe. i’m speechless 😶 .
