I partnered up with internationally bestselling author anna todd (@imaginator1d ) on the release of #thebrighteststars.
πŸ“š
qotd: what do you want to see in a love story?
πŸ“š
for me, for a love story to be good, it has to be difficult. it has to rip me apart. you already know i love tragic endings, but when a love story is involved, it’s more about the difficulties the couple faces than about how things end. as long as they go through the worst of the worst, even if they end up fine, then i’m good.
the brightest stars (in stores now) seems to be my kind of book from this perspective. it’s a novel about a young woman’s quest to keep her family together, despite the lies that are tearing them apart.
πŸ“š
synopsis:
karina knows the harsh realities of military life. and like anyone who has grown up around an army base, she knows the background noise that follows a soldier home from war. that’s why she’s forging her own quiet life in her own little house. but she hasn’t turned her back on her family. she’s the glue that holds them together—when her father is deployed, when her brother, austin, has another brush with the law.
karina knows that she has to look after herself, that she can’t always fix what’s broken. but when austin’s behavior worsens and her father’s reactions grow more extreme, karina feels her own edges beginning to fray. that’s when she meets him—a closed book she’s desperate to open.
at just twenty, kale is a handsome, brooding soldier struggling with the aftermath of two tours in afghanistan. he’s emotionally damaged and closed off. but as karina gets used to his stable presence, she finds it hard to ignore the way he makes her feel.
but illusions quickly made are quickly shattered. that’s when karina has to find her own courage—to untangle the truth from the lies, and decide what she’s going to do about it.
a riveting story about love and lies, the brightest stars will stay with you long after the last page has been turned.

What's one trope in fiction that will make you instantly buy the book?
πŸ“š
for me it's having superpowered characters in the real world. chronicle + x-men + steelheart. or anything that shows the real world going to sh*t (see the passage & soft apocalypse). i feel like i'm christian grey telling anastasia steele that my tastes are very... singular. rawrrr.
πŸ“š

If harry potter fights percy jackson, who do you think would win?
πŸ“š
if the quality of my pics suddenly spikes up, it means i just took a new batch of pics. fresh ideas are the best ideas. it might also mean i have a new dress. it might also mean that for the past week i haven't read a single page. this week has been even busier than usual, but i'm not complaining. fun fact: i don't like weekends. they feel like wasted days because nothing comes up, no emails, no nothing. sure, i can get things done and i can be productive, but i still don't like them. it feels like the world takes a break and, another fun fact, i don't like breaks. well, don't get me wrong, i love breaks (it might look like i just contradicted myself, but wait, i'll explain). breaks are like junk food. tasty and lovely, but they make you fat. so i love breaks, but i'm the kind of person who will turn a cheat day into a cheat year, do you get me? so no cheat days, ever, because if i close my eyes for one second i'm back to square 1.

comment 341 star 10,903 6 days ago

What kind of ending do you love in a book? do you like happy endings or are you a sucker for having your hopes shattered, your heart broken and the book thrown at the wall?
πŸ“š
i'm more of the second type. i love happy endings in life, but i don't like them in books - and think it this way: if the ending breaks me, i'll remember it; if they live ever after, who cares, they're happy. is the lost for words bookshop by stephanie butland a book that will break me? i don't know yet haha. what i do know is that i'm not a patient person. i can wait for the big things. the big, important things that take a lot of time. but the little things? waiting at the queue? seeing the buffering symbol? oh, that kills me. so when i got the @onceuponabookclubbox and saw the gifts, gifts that i was supposed to open only when i reached a certain page, i did the unthinkable and the unspeakable. of course i opened them right away.
πŸ“š
so you get let's say 3 gifts, titled page 33, page 333 and page 3333 (lol). and inside there are things that are mentioned in the book that you're reading. let's say that at page 33 the main character just gets a necklace from the love interest. you see a little note that tells you to open that particular gift and of course, it's the necklace. and how cool is that!
πŸ“š
but of course i opened everything the moment i got the box lol.
πŸ“š
in addition to the first qotd, here's another: would you describe yourself as a patient person?

the #owlcrate box is here! sadly, i already have the book 😭 but i'm not complaining, the one that i got now is signed by @tracythewriter (yes, the book is grace and fury - with a gorgeous exclusive cover that you'll see soon). i've already read the book and i liked it. it's a nice short read. imagine a the-handmaid's-tale-ish kind of world where women have no rights and add a kingdom, a king, two princes and two sisters (and no, this is not going where you think it is).

don't forget to use elizabeth for a discount for @owlcrate and @owlcrate jr .

What's one book that made you shed a tear or two?
πŸ“š
as always, i'll shoutout 2 accounts that comment on this pic.
πŸ“š
as you probably know from my stories, in the last few days i've read 2 of khaled hosseini's books, a thousand splendid suns and the kite runner. they were amazing. it's been a few months since i last felt this way about a book. it's one of the best feelings ever and it made me ask myself why i read. what's so special about reading? why am i spending so much time following words on paper? it's so weird if you think about it, that people read books. reading doesn't fill your belly, doesn't warm your house, doesn't do anything for you except make you... hallucinate? πŸ˜‚ i think we are some sort of junkies, us readers, don't you think?
πŸ“š
the way khaled hosseini has written about afghanistan has been so... full, so vivid, so true. i highly recommend you to read these 2 books, but don't forget your tissues (or, in my case, a towel). you'll need them.

Tell me one random thing about you.
πŸ“š
when i was 3 years old i started doing gymnastics. i loved everything about it. but there's something else about those years that stayed with me even to this day and that may seem completely unrelated - my grandmother was always knitting something while she was waiting for my class to end. i don't know why, but once in a while i think about it.
πŸ“š
also, in my class there was a girl who had a beautiful name that i don't remember. it's one of the big mysteries of my life: what was her name? i wanted to name my child after her. also, the teacher had long red (?) hair, was suuuper beautiful, and i loved her like kids love their teachers. and when school started, my 1st grade teacher looked so similar i thought they were the same person.

How do you usually choose your next read?
πŸ“š
there’s this book that i want, but there’s no ebook for it and the physical copy is pretty expensive. i could buy it, but i’m trying to save up money. i don’t have a library card, but i doubt the libraries here have it anyway.
πŸ“š
but what if someone has that book? what if they would be willing to lend it?
πŸ“š
what if there would be a place where not only i could see who’s willing to borrow me that book, but also where i myself would write down all the books that i’m willing to lend? i’d do it. aside from a few books that i care for, i would lend my whole collection. what use are they to me, innate objects collecting dust on my shelves?
πŸ“š
but is there such a place?
πŸ“š
well, there is! it’s called bookshare (@booksharebr ). currently working only in brazil, usa, portugal, mozambique and uk (coming soon in other countries), bookshare is a way to let someone else enjoy your books and also enjoy someone else’s books.
πŸ“š
how does it work?
πŸ“š
1. go to bookshare website. (www[.]bookshare[.]com[.]br)
2. register.
3. search the book that you want.
4. ask borrow.
πŸ“š
if the book’s owner accepts your request, you will receive an email with details to schedule a date, place and hour to get it. this is why you can customise your search to the area that you live in and you won’t have to pay the snail mail. actually, you don’t have to pay anything, since bookshare is free.
πŸ“š
i’m lucky enough to be able to buy that book if i really want to, but there are many people who wouldn’t be able to afford a 20$ book. thinking of the books that i own, there are hundreds of them that i don’t remember the last time i opened. books, just like money, have to flow.
πŸ“š
so the moment when bookshare will be available in my country, i’ll register. until then, people from brazil, usa, portugal, mozambique and uk, if you ever find yourself in my situation, check out bookshare.

What's the last book you picked up because of the cover?
πŸ“š
the new @fairyloot box is here and has a book that i'm interested in, even though i'm not usually into pirate books: these rebel waves by @sara_raasch. i've seen it everywhere and when i discovered it's going to be into the next #fairyloot box i was so excited. seeing it in person was even cooler! the cover looks and feels amazing!
πŸ“š
meanwhile, a small reading update: holy moly i finished a thousand splendid suns and it was wonderful. gut-wrenching and heartbreaking, but amazing. i definitely recommend it. i'm going to start the kite runner right away!!
πŸ“š
also, i decided that from now i will shoutout 2 accounts that comment on my latest pic ^_^

What's your favourite animal?
πŸ“š
i'll give a shoutout to 3 accounts that will comment on this pic. πŸ“š
the idea was to do an @owlcrate unboxing using an owl, but i don't have an owl so i used a chicken. maybe next time i'll use the seagull that i saved yesterday. i haven't got to name him/her yet, but i'll take a look at the suggestions you made and i'll choose something. i told you i'm a disney princess.
πŸ“š
the july #owlcrate box theme was strange & unusual and it included:
🌟a funko key chain from stranger things. i'm using it and it looks so cool attached to my keys.
🌟ouija board mints - i ate half of them the first day. bad idea. i finished the rest the next day. bad idea.
🌟a wallet inspired by the raven boys and designed by @reverieandink.
🌟push pins.
🌟pennant flag inspired by miss peregrine's home for peculiar children and designed by @risarodil.
🌟a luna inspired sticker designed by @tjlubrano
🌟my plain jane by @brodiashton, @cynthiahand and @unicornwarlord, signed of course.
πŸ“š
use code elizabeth to save money ;)
πŸ“š
i love chickens!

If your life was a book, what would you want your next sentence to be?
πŸ“š
#whpstudy πŸ“š
reading updates: i finished vox. 4🌟. good book, even though sometimes it felt like i was reading the handmaid's tale - there were some places where the inspiration was obvious. the ending felt a bit rushed and maybe too convenient, but nonetheless it's a good book and i recommend it. the writing style swiped me in from the first page. i always appreciate a good first sentence, page and chaper. it doesn't have to be action packed, it's not about that, it's about the hook. and vox had it.
πŸ“š
and now i started a thousand splendid suns. i'm feeling a little confused today - yesterday i went to a wedding and got home late and i'm always like this when i go to sleep late.
πŸ“š
btw, this is my country's flag. i didn't really intended to recreate it, but when i started laying down the blue books, then the yellow ones, i said hey! i can make the flag!
πŸ“š
the qotd is stolen from @bookishbronte πŸ˜†
