#coverreveal
meet me in monaco by @msheatherwebb and @hazelgaynor be sure to add this one to your #tbr
set in the 1950s against the backdrop of grace kelly’s whirlwind romance and glamourous wedding to prince rainier of monaco, new york times bestselling author hazel gaynor and heather webb take the reader on an evocative sun-drenched journey along the côte d’azur in this page-turning novel of passion, fate, and second-chances.

movie stars and paparazzi flock to cannes for the glamorous film festival, but grace kelly, the biggest star of all, wants only to escape from the flash-bulbs. when struggling perfumer sophie duval shelters miss kelly in her boutique, fending off a persistent british press photographer, james henderson, a bond is forged between the two women and sets in motion a chain of events that stretches across thirty years of friendship, love, and tragedy.

james henderson cannot forget his brief encounter with sophie duval. despite his guilt at being away from his daughter, he takes an assignment to cover the wedding of the century, sailing with grace kelly’s wedding party on the ss constitution from new york. in monaco, as wedding fever soars and passions and tempers escalate, james and sophie—like princess grace—must ultimately decide what they are prepared to give up for love.

Next up, a brief history of seven killings by marlon james!

i've had this on my shelf for ages, sorted under "long books i really want to read" 😆 a couple months ago when irene @read.rewind noticed it in a shelfie i posted she let me know it was going to be her december selection for #phatbooksgroupread and i was excited to join. funnily enough another book from that shelf, 1q84, is also a current group read i'm participating in - thanks bookstagram for helping me tackle my longtime want to reads!

i'm a couple chapters into part two at the moment. the novel isn't quite as fast paced as i'd thought it would be, at least not yet, but i'm still thoroughly hooked! i love books with short chapters, and this book features a lot of 5-10 page chapters as it shifts between many perspectives. james expertly brings his large cast of characters to life, giving the reader a firm grounding in this chaotic story. excited to see where we go next!

scene from last night, bath bomb, candle, peppermint @goicecreamgo ice cream and tempting fate by reading a heavy novel in the bathtub 😅 not the most calming book to pair with a relaxing bath, but sometimes that is just how it goes!

"the way her fingers flutter through the space around her. each a thing he hopes never to forget." all the light we cannot see, by anthony doerr.
・・・
what kind of stories do you gravitate towards during winter?

i'm not much of a mood/weather reader, although i do tend to pick up fantasy and historical fiction more often once the temperature drops. i don't exactly know why fantasy, but since historical fiction usually makes me cry, i guess a happy, sunny weather doesn't feel right. there's something about reading a heart-wrenching book with a cup of tea at hands reach, wrapped in a blanket. sobbing is optional.

sci-fi, on the other hand, has been feeling a lot more summery lately. maybe that's just because this year i read some great sci-fi during the warmer months so my brain already made that connection. it has apparently forgotten about illuminae and gemina, both of which i read during autumn.

how about you, are you a weather reader? or do the elements and amount of light/warmth have no effect on your reading preferences?

Hello, #bookstagram! a surprising amount of historical fiction for someone who hasn’t historically read much of the genre. i’ve also picked up the tattooist of auschwitz since taking this photo (as recommended by my fiancé’s best friend)... i call this shelfie, ‘stories to make sam sob’ because what’s more festive than going through a box of man-sized kleenex!
😭🎄
short post today because i’m working all the hours under the sun. hurray for being a bookseller at christmas so, without further ado, my two...
🎄🎄
qotd: have you read any of these? what did you think?
qotd: what is your favourite historical fiction book or author?

We had freezing rain today so it's a good night to stay in and read. 🌧
today i finished the alice network by kate quinn on audible. it definitely made my commute more enjoyable! an intertwined story about female spies during wwi and wwii, there were some aspects of the story that were a little too unrealistic for me, but overall it was fascinating. i'm afraid the finger scene made my skin crawl and may give me nightmares - i sincerely hope it wasn't based on fact. (had i read the book, instead of listened to it, i would've skipped over that part! it's harder to cheat with audible.) i wish there had been more detail about rose; i wanted to learn more about her story. the alternating voices of charlie and eve give great insight into their feelings and experiences but there is nothing first-hand from rose. the ending was very satisfying, but a little too tidy.

Starting #declitwrit on the 10th because i’m late as usual:
so, games—my #amquerying wip has no literal games—unless you count plots to cover up a pregnancy, the slaves pretending they are happy to serve white people, and darcy-esque “i love you but i’m too stoic to show you so i’ll pretend to dislike you except sometimes” mind games. those count too right?
all on a maryland tobacco plantation in 1763. i think my mc is the only one who doesn’t play games. she needs things to be straightforward and clear as a bell.

‪i got a novel coming out next year. i wrote this thing out by hand in 3 notebooks... transferred it to a computer and then rewrote it like 5 times. i put so much time into this. i’ve studied every character and i know them like the back of my hand. from josephine ((she so feisty)), to lady ((she too materialistic, but she gawgeous)), and uncle leroy ((unintentionally funny, an a-hole, but loves hard))... and even ehhis godsink.. confused and misguided.
movie on paper. extra special thanks to felicia for helping me through this process. june release at the harlem renaissance event hosted by verb kulture. more info and promo material coming soon.

Rahasia kekuatan samurai terbesar sepanjang sejarah
.
demikianlah miyamoto musashi dikenal luas di seluruh dataran jepang, hingga saat ini. ia menjadi legenda. seorang samurai yang pertama menemukan teknik dua pedang. .
.
musashi yang punya nama kecil takezo ini menghadapi titik balik hidupnya setelah bertemu dengan seorang pendeta bernama takuan di kuil shippoji, mimasaka, miyamoto. takezo yang liar dan tukang rusuh, di bawah tempaan takuan, telah berevolusi menjadi seorang pendekar tangguh dan terhormat di negaranya. .
.
takuan mengurung takezo selama tiga tahun di salah satu ruangan dalam puri seorang daimyo (tuan tanah) ikeda terumasa, puri himeji. tentu takezo dikurung bukan dalam keadaan diikat atau perlakuan sebagaimana kepada narapidana. takuan berhasil menundukkan takezo bukan dengan senjata tajam. .
.
sebab takuan menyadari betul dalam diri pemuda itu ada satu kekuatan besar yang sulit didefinisikan. namun, potensi kekuatan itu kelak akan membuat si tukang rusuh menjadi seseorang yang keberadaannya akan sangat diperhitungkan. namanya akan semerbak di langit-langit sejarah. .
.
di puri itulah, dalam sebuah kamar yang letaknya paling atas, takezo mempelajari bertumpuk-tumpuk buku, salah satunya berjudul seni perang karya sun-tzu. .
.
barangsiapa mengenal seni perang, tak akan serampangan ia dalam gerakannya. ia kaya akan karsa dan membatasi kemungkinan. karenanya, sun-tzu berkata, .
.
“barangsiapa mengenal dirinya sendiri dan mengenal musuhnya, ia senantiasa menang dengan mudah. barangsiapa mengenal langit dan bumi, ia menang atas segalanya.”
.

Finding myself totally engrossed in this atmospheric story about a family's secret history that starts in the heady days of the roaring twenties and journeys up to the late 1980s.

It just isn't done, a lady running off with a man, even if he is half-frog.
ending the curse, charming fairy tales, book 3 :::link in bio:::
...
#excerpt ...
the glow of sunset gave the room an infused, orange shine, revealing that this was not bryan's room in his friend’s castle.
he shivered.
and realized the reason for his chill.
he was naked…
nothing made any sense.
what did he remember for certain? what concrete memory did he have?
the hanging.
that witch was looking at him with those eyes of hers.
and… kiki?
nick's sister kiki?
