If you were to put one thing in a time capsule that would be opened 100 hears from now, what would it be?
πŸ“š
i was all over the place the last 2 days. a lot of good things have happened. i also started to read i want superpowers by @stevenbereznai and it's sooo good! i was so in the mood for a good dystopia + superpowers. if you know other books that fit the criteria, please let me know.

What is your favourite genre?
πŸ“š
when i first saw broken mirrors' cover i knew exactly what kind of pic i wanted to take with it. it basically screams at you "release your inner skeleton" πŸ˜… i finished it last week and i loved it (which really says something because i'm not into thrillers/books with cops/mafia). but it was so fast paced, so full of action i couldn't resist and last friday when i had a bit of me time i flew through it. i even liked the love story, which doesn't usually happen (mini-crush on malcom). thank you @mariemcwilliamsauthor !

synopsis
πŸ“š
when marie moves from belfast to london, she envisions a fresh start and an escape from a broken home. once there, she meets malcolm carter, a charming, handsome man who sweeps her off her feet and gives her a life she could only have imagined. but malcolm isn’t all he seems; he’s a criminal, a mobster and a murderer. detective fraser duncan knows what he is, and he's determined to take him down, but things get more complex when a rival and brutal gang leader appears on the scene, setting his sights on malcolm’s empire. when marie chooses to stay with malcolm, regardless of what he is and what he has done, she starts down a path from which she can never return, and now she has been taken, detective duncan and malcolm must set their differences aside and join forces in a race against time to save the woman they love.

Q&a time. you know the drill - ask me stuff and i'll answer. nothing is off limits.
πŸ“š
but before we start, isn't the booksleeve from @bookbeau just beautiful? don't let the hard days win, ha? you know what this quote reminds me of? it reminds of "don't let the muggles get you down". or of "nolite te bastardes carborundorum". words to live by. you should defo check her out because her art is just so cool (and her booksleeves keep your books warm).
πŸ“š
quick update - i finished social creature by tara isabella burton and it was so good! like really! if you want some black pills and a super cynic style, this book is for you.
πŸ“š
a few days ago i also finished broken mirrors by @mariemcwilliamsauthor and that too was so good! the kind of book that keeps you glued to the page.
πŸ“š
i will write a review for each of them asap.

What superpower would you like to have?
πŸ“š
hello there, new people! it's nice to have you here. i'm liz and i'm talking about books. the book that i want to talk about today is i want superpowers by @stevenbereznai . i'm super excited to read it because it's 100% my jam - superpowers, heroes, villains, x-men meets chronicle and steelheart. i just want to read about people that have supernatural abilities because... because i don't have them. isn't it dreadful that out of all the alternate realities, we happen to live in one where humans can't fly or move things with their mind?! if i would've had the power to move things with my mind, that tower would have stayed upright (actually, the pose was 100% deliberate, i thought it looked cuter πŸ‘±).
πŸ“š
also, comment friend in your language and enter πŸ˜† because, you know, doors of durin and stuff. plus, yesterday's feature wouldn't have happened without my friend @james_trevino haha πŸ˜‡
πŸ“š
btw, some words about the instagram feature. if you go to my sunday's caption, you'll see that the whp tag is among the last ones. that's because i wrote it on a whim. i remember thinking 'i'm not going to win anyway but whatever'. let this be a lesson. i'm not talking about social media, but about life in general. you know what i mean. this isn't the first time something like this happened to me and it's not going to be the last. so long story short - just do it.

What's your fondest bookish memory?

shelley stone might be a little overwhelmed. she runs the company conch, the manufacturer of a small wearable device that attaches to the user's ear and whispers helpful advice and prompts. she's married with two small children, nova and blazer, both of whom are learning mandarin. she employs a cook, a nanny, a driver, and an assistant, she sets an alarm for 2am conference calls, and occasionally takes a standing nap while waiting in line when she's really exhausted. shelley takes dramamine so she can work in the car; allows herself ten almonds when hungry; swallows ativan to stave off the panic attacks; and makes notes in her day planner to "practice being happy and relatable." but when shelley meets a young woman named shelley stone who has the exact same scar on her shoulder, shelley has to wonder: is some sort of corporate espionage afoot? has she discovered a hole in the space-time continuum? or is she finally buckling under all the pressure?

Thanks for the free book @doubledaybooks!
πŸ“š
what books are you excited to read this month? (sorry @james_trevino, i kinda stole your question).
πŸ“š
social creature by tara isabella burton is one of the books i'm excited to read this month. that is, if my life lets me πŸ˜… i don't have a reading slump. i repeat. i do not have a reading slump. the only thing i want is to read all day. and it is for this reason that i'm not doing it, because i'd turn into a monster and stop doing anything else, and that would be bad because there are things that i have to do! anyway, social creature has a lot of good reviews on goodreads and i plan on adding my own review (a.k.a. starting the book). right now i'm reading broken mirrors by @mariemcwilliamsauthor and i'm loving it but i can read only a few pages (and that if i'm not super tired before going to bed). but i'm getting there. i'm getting there.

social creature synopsis
πŸ“š
for readers of gillian flynn and donna tartt, a dark, propulsive and addictive debut thriller, splashed with all the glitz and glitter of new york city.
*
they go through both bottles of champagne right there on the high line, with nothing but the stars over them... they drink and lavinia tells louise about all the places they will go together, when they finish their stories, when they are both great writers-to paris and to rome and to trieste...
*
lavinia will never go. she is going to die soon.
*
louise has nothing. lavinia has everything. after a chance encounter, the two spiral into an intimate, intense, and possibly toxic friendship. a talented mr. ripley for the digital age, this seductive story takes a classic tale of obsession and makes it irresistibly new.

Tell me something about you
πŸ“š
a few days ago i talked about my struggles with body image and how i learned to love and accept myself. now i’m going to talk about something that doesn’t have a happy ending (yet). and that is anxiety.
πŸ“š
the first time i realised there was something wrong was 2-3 years ago. i was super agitated and i couldn’t breathe properly. back then i blamed it on coffee and on some things going on in my life, but when those things ended, i continued feeling like that. still, i didn’t know what i was dealing with because those moments where very random and i was like “suck it up liz & move yo’ ass, why you so lame?!”. i’ve never been the kind of person that was scared of talking in front of people or afraid of challenges and that still stands. i was/am an introvert, but an introvert with an attitude if that makes sense :)) so the word anxiety didn’t even cross my mind. that simply wasn’t me.
πŸ“š
fast forward a few months later. i was writing and editing and thinking that it has to be perfect. and i realised i couldn’t breathe. but this time it was different. this time i realised there was a trigger, not just the coffee, and that it meant something. and i started to hunt the triggering things. which were the most pathetic things you could imagine. most of them (the big ones) i’m not comfortable sharing (because i’m anxious to even mention them), but i can give you some examples. at the beginning of this account i was anxious even when i had to answer the comments (not anymore, but wtf!). a friend of mine just told me that his “friend” stole the code they both worked on for 2 years (which triggered instant anxiety because what if this sort of thing happens to me too?). sometimes i’m saying some harmless thing to someone and i just go into infinite loop of wondering if that person got upset (talking about it helped a lot and in 99% of the cases the other person didn’t even remember, because, again, i’m worrying about s****d things).

What are you currently reading?
πŸ“š
congrats to our shadowhunters/the mortal instruments giveaway, @julie_in_bookland
πŸ“š
i was overwhelmed by your messages following yesterday's post. it really put things into perspective. πŸ“š
i just finished acofas and it was just as good as i hoped it would be and just as short as i knew it would be. it had a sneak peek from the next book which i didn't expect! another thing that i didn't expect was the number of new povs!❀
πŸ“š
this series made me realise (lol did you realise this just now?) how important it is to have a strong female character. feyre rocks! i loved it so much and it was so good to go back to this world, but i'll give it a 4.5/5 because it was short and it didn't have a clear plot, it was just... stuff that happened after acowar.
πŸ“š
i have no pics with acofas so this will have to do.
