⭐️⭐️⭐️: this one’s been on my kindle for a long time, so i decided what better month to finally read it than october?
.
.
this was a pretty good ya story, written about actual caged graves in pennsylvania. while the real reason those graves are caged is unknown, the author presented an interesting and believable story about how they came to be that way. .
.
my only complaint about this book is the love triangle. i know that’s a super popular trope, especially in #yafiction, but i’m really over it. i felt that there were other ways to introduce conflict than simply add in another love interest, but that may just be me. .
.
overall, an interesting and easy read, with a surprising twist at the end. recommended for anyone who likes ya historical fiction.

You can find me here for the rest of the day - burning the rest of this @bathandbodyworks cinnamon pretzel twist candle (😍) and digging into a new book! .

i just finished the glass castle last night and i absolutely loved it - i can’t believe i didn’t read it sooner! now i’m finally sitting down to start still life, and i have high expectations based on how everyone raves about the series! .

what are you doing with the rest of your sunday?

I have been buddy reading “the fellowship of the ring” with my fiancé... who isn’t even a reader! 🤯🤯🤯 he even said he’d be open to reading other books with me! it’s been such a fun an amazing experience to share something i have always loved with the person i love the most. and by buddy read i mean we’ve been reading it out loud to each other. 😂 yes, it’s nerdy.. but it’s actually a great way to spend time with your significant other. give it a try! 💕
📚📚📚
i should mention.. nick got me into lotr and got! that’s right... i had zero interest in fantasy. but now i’m constantly on the hunt for new adventures.
📚📚📚
i put off reading lotr for so long because i thought it would be too hard or boring, but i was so wrong. it’s made me laugh, cry, and sweat from anticipation. if you’ve been thinking for taking the plunge into middle earth.. just do it!

#grimdragon - the suspense is killing me

after waiting so many years for this final book, it had to arrive during midterms week. thanks, library. i still have a few more days before i can actually start reading it, so i'm torturing myself by sitting around with it and taking photos of it until then, because you know, why not?

what's the last book you had to wait to start reading though you wanted to immediately drop everything else to get to it?

The last week i’ve been crazy busy with work changes, and dealing with all the areas of my life those changes affected. i haven’t had much down time, but when i did (outside of time with kiddo, hubs, dog), i used it to watch the haunting of hill house - which was 💯 .
all of those things left no time for reading, so i’m still reading the same books i was 8 days ago 😂 i have a free morning, so besides a long walk with our dog, i’m hoping to put a dent in one of these + treating myself to my fave cookies. what are you up to today?

The little princess is a beautiful book. sara, although a strange character, is a wonderful example of what it means to be a beautiful person inside and out. her kindness towards everyone even those who are not kind to her is a true example of a generosity but what really stood out to me was her ability to give to others. when she was hungry and had not eaten for days she still gave food to another girl who she felt was even hungrier than her. that is my eyes is a gracious soul. #bookquotes #ilovereading #bookstagram #booknerd #instabooks #puffinbooks #unreadshelfproject2018

My first readathon! theme: "four sides of the world". @bukmarkic has given us such an irresistible challenge: 15 days for 4 books, each taking place on a different continent (excluding australia).
.
i loved this from the moment i saw his introductory video. choosing books was so much fun! and i have added a twist to this challenge for myself: to chose from books on my unread shelf. it was a difficult choice. due to time constraints i had to go with four rather shortish books, 'cause i really want to be able to finish them all in the given timeframe.
.
and the winners are:
- "pompeii" by robert harris (europe)
- "the gardens of light" by amin maalouf (asia)
- "the full cupboard of life" by alexander mccall smith (africa)
- "the long searching" (a selection of short stories) by jorge luis borges (america)
.
how do you like my choices?
.
happy reading!

Sorry, not the most inspiring photo, but i haven't had a moment to think over the last few days so this will have to do.

found this at my library for $3 - sold!! had my eye on this one for a while and want to get to it over the next couple of months.

I reorganized my unread shelves last weekend - they had initially been shelved by color, but slowly morphed into a mess. which meant i couldn’t find anything.
.
so i pulled them all off, and split up the fiction and nonfiction. fiction went back shelved by author’s last name (middle two shelves). nf went in any random order, but hopefully will get organized by subject soon (bottom two shelves). i worked at a library during high school, and i still got my dewey skills.
.
the top two shelves are all my completed fiction - slowly, those numbers are growing!
.
how do you organize your shelves? happy friday, everyone!!!!!!

Hey book peeps! how are you? i‘ve been on the road a lot lately and it has been great fun, but i‘m also looking forward to spending some time at home. 😊 the prompt for #theunreadshelfproject2018 in october is to read a book by the author we have the highest number of books of on our unread shelves (this sentence looks like it might not be correct). for me that is tamora pierce with i think 5 or 6 books. i loved the books about daine when i was a kid and always wanted to be like her. i even tried standing in the ocean and listening really hard to see if i could hear whales. my sister and our friend were more into the alanna books so there was a lot of pretend sword (stick) fighting going on in our childhood.
i read that her books are problematic which is something i didn‘t realise when i was a kid (and let‘s get real that was decades ago 😄). i am sad that these books hurt people and am also curious to read them (again in case of daine) to see if i am sensitive enough now. i haven‘t read trickster‘s choice yet but i guess it will be my next read.
have you read any books by tamora pierce and how did you like them? 🐺🐴🐉🐱🐴🐺🐉🐱🐺🐴🐉🐱

Book confession: i didn’t read #littlehouseontheprairie until this year. 🙈 crazy, i know, and i couldn’t even finish the series because it didn’t hold my attention (sorry @acozyreader and @2.ps.in.a.bookstagram .)what did have me intrigued was the mom, caroline. i was thrilled to find out that @sarahmillerbooks had written a story from caroline’s perspective. i devoured this story. while i didn’t agree with all her decisions, i was thrilled to peel back the layers and learn more about caroline. i would recommend this reimagining to all the #littlehouseseries fans out there or anyone who loves a good historical fiction. do you plan on reading #caroline ?

You know that in-between-books slump when you just can't decide what to start next? i hate that. just picked up this from my #unreadshelfproject2018 and hoping it's a good choice!
