Hello Book lovers 💓
Happy Sunday! I started reading The Cruel Prince earlier, I’m not that far but I’m very intrigued already. I feel like I’m really going to love this book! Just got done spending time with family and now I’m going to go home and cuddle up with my fur babies and read. 💜
This book sleeve is from @bookbiff. Its one of my favorites I own and I love this one so much because Pickett is one of my favorite Fantastic Beasts 😍 •
QOTD : Current read?? 💕
I just listened to this one on #audible and loved it! #minimalism fascinates me, and although our family is a long way from that lifestyle, I took away some valuable tips and ideas from this. I also loved the aspects of #japanese culture that are highlighted. It’s a great read with lots of practical tips about how to simplify and reduce.
And so it begins again. I came across this dandy fellow on a lazy Saturday enjoying #famouslastwords . I don’t know how he got an early copy (it’s out 5/29) or if what he’s drinking is an appletini or a weird margarita, but I’m betting he’s just gotten to the part about #benaffleck . Ben and like 106 other celebs are in the book. Pre-order now! All the cool kids are doing it. #bookstagram#newbooks#amreading#crossisland#celebrities
This is my next read. I like to read historical biographies occasionally partly due to a delusion I have of being on Jeopardy one day and I feel like this helps me prepare. But, more often than not, I get sucked into the story of somebody’s life that is completely foreign from mine.
In the American Rockies, drinking Italian wine, reading about a city that has spanned 8000 years. 2018 feels like a dumpster fire...but these small moments remind me that, for good or ill, we live in an age of wonders that our ancestors could not have dreamed of. #amreading#history#daydreams#bookstagram#winetime
Soooo, I'm in a book rut. 😢😢😢 I think I'm just really anxious to get my hands on some upcoming reads (I'm looking at you @pepperwinters and @authorgingerscott ) that I can't get into anything else at the moment. So I took a recommendation from @geri_reads (She doesn't know she recommended this, I just stalk her) and I'm starting a new-to-me author just because it's supposed to be angsty. #iloveangst#amreading#anythingbutmine by #lindawinfree
I’m not old, but I am not a spring chicken anymore, as Nanny used to say. In my mind, sometimes I am still in my twenties with two babies, wishing the years would hurry up and pass by. Some days I am in my thirties with my dreams of becoming an author fresh and new. Most days I am grateful I managed to survive without too many scars on my heart—scars that once were fresh and purple, but are now fading with time. Difficult things happen to everyone, but it is how we respond to them that matters. ⠀
TC and I are reading in our back yard after a long and BRUTAL week. I’m brushing up on a new favorite (re)union by Bruxy Cavey and starting “Mystics and Misfits” by Christiana Peterson- which Looks amazing- a perfect narrative theology summer read. I can’t decide y’all... they are both wonderful writers and fellow Herald Press authors! OH! And yes, that’s the new John M. Perkins new book, “On Blood” on TC’s foot stool. #amreading#reconnecting#highlighterinhand
🌺 Thx to @BookSparks for the free review copy as a part of #SRC2018 😘
Yay! HOW TO WALK AWAY is the featured book this week for the BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge and I read it SO fast! It's a story about overcoming obstacles with some major family drama and romance thrown in - if you are looking for a book to inhale during a long beach session or an airplane ride (if you are a brave flyer!) this summer, definitely throw this one in your bag 🏖 ✈️
⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ // i’m five books behind in my 2018 reading goal, but this book brought me back on track. turns out, when i’m in a reading slump, i just need to go on an airplane + knock a book off.
what i loved: the love story. the use of colour. the weaving of the past. the culture. the descriptions. the role art played in the story. an honest, raw, + heartbreaking look into mental illness. .
what i didn’t love: i didn’t get everything in it - and i found myself trying to skip through the stories about the present in order to spend more time in the past.
anybody else starting to feel the pressure for their goodreads goals?!? what’s your game plan for getting back on track?
Don't let the past shackle you to those who never appreciated how worth it you are❤️#reallifetalks

Ansiosos para a estreia do filme “Jurassic World: Reino Ameaçado”? Eu adoro os filmes já lançados (exceto o terceiro da trilogia original, que foi bem +/-) e estou morrendo de vontade de assistir ao novo filme.
#Sinopse : Quatro anos após o fechamento do Jurassic Park, um vulcão prestes a entrar em erupção põe em risco a vida na ilha Nublar. No local não há mais qualquer presença humana, com os dinossauros vivendo livremente. Diante da situação, é preciso tomar uma decisão: deve-se retornar à ilha para salvar os animais ou abandoná-los para uma nova extinção? Decidida a resgatá-los, Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) convoca Owen (Chris Pratt) a retornar à ilha com ela.
Dia 25/05 foi o Dia do Orgulho Nerd ou o Dia da Toalha, como preferir, em comemoração a essa data a Beca do ig @capadurabooks, propôs uma super maratona, a #maratonaliterariadontpanic , com o intuito de incentivar a leitura de livros que abordem essa atmosfera, seja em viagem no espaço, no tempo, quadrinhos, super heróis, ficção cientifica entre outros.
A maratona ocorreu entre os dias 21/5 e 25/5 e eu havia selecionados os livros da imagem, pois embora eu adore os filmes, eu nunca tinha lido os livros. Então... será que eu consegui cumprir a meta de leitura do desafio? Ou será que não? Na próxima postagem sobre a maratona vocês saberão a resposta.
Anyone interested in a limited-run copy of ‘Screams from the Underground’ can grab one at B&N or Amazon (link in bio), or DM me if you want some extra goodies and free shipping. Here’s a little time lapse highlighting some of the finer points of the book, which includes full color photos and art in zine-like fashion. Once they’re gone, they’re gone, so get it while you can. 💙
