Another beautiful release i hope i can get to this month or the next.
qotd:
are you guys planning to read give the dark my love? have you read it already?
also guys!! i’m so excited for tomorrow’s event. i’m going to get to see sj maas and ahhhh! i love her so much. i didn’t get to buy vip tickets but i’m just happy to be able to see her talk.

summary:

seventeen-year-old nedra brysstain leaves her home in the rural, northern territories of lunar island to attend the prestigious yugen academy with only one goal in mind: master the trade of medicinal alchemy. a scholarship student matriculating with the children of lunar island's wealthiest and most powerful families, nedra doesn't quite fit in with the other kids at yugen.
until she meets greggori "grey" astor. grey is immediately taken by the brilliant and stubborn nedra, who he notices is especially invested in her studies. and that's for a good reason: a deadly plague has been sweeping through the north, and it's making its way toward the cities. with her family's life--and the lives of all of lunar island's citizens--on the line, nedra is determined to find a cure for the plague.
grey and nedra grow close, but as the sickness spreads and the body count rises, nedra becomes desperate to find a cure. soon, she finds herself diving into alchemy's most dangerous corners--and when she turns to the most forbidden practice of all, necromancy, even grey might not be able to pull her from the darkness.

Hello my bookish friends!! i feel lost because i haven’t read anything since friday. it’s now sunday night. i’m currently watching the hubble pack because he goes out of town tomorrow for work. at least this trip is a short one for him. •


qotd: turn your book to page 57 and give me the first full sentence. (the hubble provided this question but it’s very similar to what ellie @faerieontheshelf did recently). here’s mine “rocking and sobbing, the congregation became a sea; the woman seemed to point at all of them and none of them.”



challenges:
#fallinlovebooksandcoffee light roast | short book. this series is full of short little books that are full of incredible content. i buddy read the first 2 books with sue @pouringoverpages and kelsea @anovelescape and we still need to read the third book. •


goodreads synopsis of the first book, every heart a doorway:

eleanor west’s home for wayward children
no solicitations
no visitors
no quests

children have always disappeared under the right conditions; slipping through the shadows under a bed or at the back of a wardrobe, tumbling down rabbit holes and into old wells, and emerging somewhere... else.

but magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children.

nancy tumbled once, but now she’s back. the things she’s experienced... they change a person. the children under miss west’s care understand all too well. and each of them is seeking a way back to their own fantasy world.

but nancy’s arrival marks a change at the home. there’s a darkness just around each corner, and when tragedy strikes, it’s up to nancy and her new-found schoolmates to get to the heart of the matter.

no matter the cost.

I forgot to set my alarm this morning!! luckily i woke up on time anyways and had time for my coffee 😅😅 thank goodness it’s a sunny day and the light woke me!! anyways is #seriessaturday and i hope by now you know the depth of my love for @brandsanderson’s stormlight archive, but if you don’t, then now you do. this is my absolute favorite series of the year (with all souls skirting in a close second). these books are giant but worth every page and minute you spend on them. jasnah, kaladdin, and adolin are my favs and i’m eternally grateful to christine (@love.books.and.coffee ) and kelsea (@anovelescape ) for talking with me about them!! also @bookish_meraxes is hosting a readalong for book 1! .
.
i gotta go to work so tell me what you do for a job!

‘“that’s where you’re wrong,” nicklaus said, standing over the dying priestess. “i am the hammer. and the anvil. and the blade. and you... you are a fool.”’
⚔️
i was first drawn to revenant winds when i laid eyes on it’s gorgeous cover. i mean if you put a fierce monster on a cover, with some awesome looking warriors set against it, then you immediately have my attention! i’m just so happy that the story also quickly hooked me in from the very first chapter, so i wasn’t disappointed at all. the story at its heart follows a group of misfits, some with magical powers and some without, thrown together to save a village from the onslaught of savage dead-eyes. ⚔️
i loved the way hogan quickly established the world and magic system of the book, but kept enough back to build upon and weave throughout the story to keep the reader intrigued. the world is heavily governed by various religious factions, with characters who have been marked and therefore obeyed different gods and goddesses. sorcery is both respected, feared and shunned by most religions, but are used nevertheless.
⚔️
if you like shady characters who are morally grey and often conflicted, then like me you’re going to love this. my favourite was nicklaus, a very shady immortal warrior, who is full of sarcasm, lust and is not shy of being dastardly when needed! he is definitely one of my all time favourite characters.
i also loved kurio; she’s a badass thief who always fights on even when faced with so much trauma.
⚔️
there are also plenty of demons, dead-eye monsters, and various other evil creatures that work perfectly to set the dark tone. if you know me, you know i really love all of that, and it’ll be no surprise to you that this book has become another of my favourite reads this year! i cannot wait for the sequel to be completed!

The other day my wife also found this book for me. the good news is that it is a first edition hardback that also looks to be signed by the author. the signature looks pretty close to ones i have googled but it could be fake, who knows 🤷🏻‍♂️
bad news is that it is all banged up and water damaged but still readable 🙌
also i don’t know much about it except what @manreads told me recently. a friend also told me it was a good series.
.
have you read this? what can you tell me about it?

Today is my one-year #bookstagram anniversary! i just want to say thank you to everyone for their support and inspiration over the past year. you’re all amazing and i’m incredibly grateful!

that said, i wanted this post to be a nod to a series that brought me into bookstagramming. it was my love for books like sjm’s #acotar that led me to discover this community. let me just tell you, i thought you were all a little crazy. 😂

now i’m happy to be apart of the insanity and so glad i took the plunge!

do you have a bookstagram account? if so, when did you join the madness?

One of my 2018 reading resolutions was to read more female authors. i’m so glad to say that i’m accomplished that goal. regarding other goals… well. i still have so many books to read from my 2018 bucket list but i still have two months to read them. will i be able to read them all? i don’t know.

i will share that list eventually, hopefully next week. so stay tuned!

how about you? how are your reading goals going? trying to catch up in these last few months?

uno de mis propósitos literarios del 2018 era leer más libros escritos por mujeres. estoy muy contenta de decirles que superé con creces ese propósito. sobre mis otros propósitos… bue. todavía tengo tantos libros que leer de mi bucket list del 2018 pero todavía me quedan dos meses. podré llegar a tiempo para leerlos? no sé…

la próxima semana espero mostrarles las lecturas que aún tengo pendientes de esa lista. así que estén atentos!

¿y ustedes? ¿cómo van esos propósitos de lectura? ¿están apurándose para completar sus propósitos antes de que termine el año?
#grimdragon – go to the winchester, have a nice cold point & wait for this all to b**w over .

📖 e quando você termina o livro e não consegue decidir se gostou ou não? já aconteceu com vocês?
▪️
🎪 comigo sim, e o caso mais marcante foi esse aí da foto: o circo da noite, de erin morgenstern. li esse livro em 2013 e vi que recentemente ele voltou aos holofotes em alguns igs por aqui, por isso me despertou essa temática.
▪️
🎪 essa é a história de um circo muito especial, cheio de magia e atrações misteriosas. e enquanto conhecemos um pouco mais sobre seu interior e sobre as pessoas que o fazem funcionar, acompanhamos o duelo de dois magos, celia e marco. mesmo que entendam que são apenas parte de um jogo, o circo viaja pelo mundo e eles se aprofundam ainda mais nesse caso de amor e disputa.
▪️
📖 sério, só por esse resuminho dá pra ver muitos elementos que valorizo em um bom livro. mas quando terminei a leitura, ficou só uma grande incógnita na minha cabeça. gostei? não gostei? não consigo nem expressar minha opinião mesmo tantos anos depois. e pior: não animei ainda fazer uma releitura pra definir uma conclusão. sem contar que as críticas, ao invés de ajudar, só atrapalham, pois são extremamente mistas.
▪️
📖 e vocês, já tiveram uma experiência parecida? eu fico super agoniada ao lembrar da minha, hahahaha. compartilhem suas vivências e sua opinião sobre esse livro, caso o conheçam!

#mapmonday for #geekyglowreadsfall 🖤 this map is from the poppy war by r. f. kuang! i swear i’ll finish it one day! i’m about 1/2 through it and i need to get back to it. i just haven’t had a lot free reading time as of late and and my aching neck/shoulder makes it hard to focus sometimes. alas, someday soon i’ll return to it! ••• do you refer to maps while reading? i don’t. i love looking at them after reading but i don’t really examine them while reading 🧐 #bookaddicted #bookwyrm #bookdragon #bookish #bookstagram #openbook #readerlife #bookworm #fantasybooks #thepoppywar

What’s your favorite flower? 🌻🌸🌼
.
mine are sunflowers and hydrangeas. i always thought the tiny hydrangea petals looked like butterflies ready to take off with one gust of the wind. and now, i live in a place where i can grow them. even have two in my front yard already. thank you previous tenants.
.
today’s theme is time travel. not a bad topic for monday when i know most of us are wishing we could jump back into the weekend. i struggled waking up this morning.
.
here are my two favorite time traveling stories, and they both happen to be from rory’s booklist. i’m sure most of you have read the time traveler’s wife, but if you haven’t heard of time and again i highly recommend it. another love story, one man is enlisted into a secret government experiment to travel through time. new york 1882. everything’s different. the streets, the sounds, the people... on an adventure of a lifetime, the man must choose between the past or the present.
.
do you have any good time traveling books to recommend? i especially love the idea and all the different ways authors can run with it.
