Here's the book I received yesterday 😄
It's a new release tackling important issues such as r*pe culture and victim blaming. Especially in the light of recent events at Hollywood and Co. it's super important to not turn a blind eye that there's still an exorbitantly high number of r*pists and sexual harassers who get away with what they've done because no one believes the girl... .
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
"I need Owen to explain this. Because yes, I do know that Owen would never do that, but I also know Hannah would never lie about something like that." Mara and Owen are about as close as twins can get. So when Mara's friend Hannah accuses Owen of rape, Mara doesn't know what to think. Can the brother she loves really be guilty of such a violent crime? Torn between the family she loves and her own sense of right and wrong, Mara is feeling lost, and it doesn't help that things have been strained with her ex-girlfriend and best friend since childhood, Charlie.
As Mara, Hannah, and Charlie navigate this new terrain, Mara must face a trauma from her own past and decide where Charlie fits in her future. With sensitivity and openness, this timely novel confronts the difficult questions surrounding consent, victim blaming, and sexual assault.
I have been reading Faerie magazine since it debuted in 2005. These are not the cutesy pink faeries of children's books but those of mythology and of deeply talented artists which is why I adore their new book publications. The photography is delightful. I have The Faerie Handbook and Mermaids is next.
QOTD: What’s your favorite bookish merch?
My favorite merch are magnetic bookmarks and candles, but I also love getting surprise bookish pins 😍They’re always so cute when I find them in my book boxes, and though I’m not sure what to do with them, I like having them around to look at 🙈
Some of my May book haul! Can you believe that I got all of these books for under £2!
Eleanor Oliphant was a gift from my lovely friend and all the others were amazing finds from my local library book sale.
This post was inspired by yesterday’s post from @frenchflaps_and_deckleedges
I also love to see book hauls, it gives me an excuse to buy more!
I freaking love this series that Jay Kristoff has written he has such a poetic way of getting all those swear words in😂and it's just so incredibly bad ass and amazing and I wish I was Mia because she is awesome. The only thing that I'm still pissed about is the Ash and Mia relationship like urm...no bitch Tric and Mia forever please thank you😂
What one book do you love that also annoys you?
Also the UK covers of this series are incredible and I want to die and I'm so ready for the cover reveal for the 3rd book. Hands up if you are excited for more blood shed from Mia?🙋♀️
I'm glad I organized everything but damn I'm keeping busy now. 😂 Short post 'cause I have a lot to do!

Located in the centre of Cecil Court, the quiet pedestrian lane lined with antiquarian bookshops, tucked away in London's bustling West End, Marchpane opened in August 1989. It was started by Laurence Worms (Ash Rare Books) and his then Director, Kenneth Fuller. Laurence kindly sold the business to Kenneth and now, nearly 30 years later it is a thriving rare (in both senses) London bookshop. Marchpane is the premier specialist in Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland, Alice Liddell, books and ephemera in the West End. We welcome visitors in person and via the Internet, we keep regular shop hours, no appointment necessary. Marchpane is proud to be a key member of the burgeoning Cecil Court community. To see more of our books visit our Facebook page.
During the last three decades Marchpane has become well known as a specialist in children's and illustrated books from the eighteenth century up to the present day. On our shelves you can find early publications from Newbery's moral tales to signed first editions of Harry Potter.
We stock all the best British collectable children’s books, we nearly always have copies of great classics such as Winnie-the-Pooh, Peter Pan, The Wind in the Willows, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Wizard of Oz, Pinocchio, Nursery Rhymes as well as editions of Andersen, Grimm and Perrault etc.
We also stock some of the rarest Home Front and Political children’s books of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
We look forward to our 30th birthday in 2019! ✨🎉🎈
sooo... i’ll admit that it totally bothers me that i could only find the second book in the series in paperback. not that i don’t like paperbacks but it’s the visual on my shelf when two are hardback and one isn’t. •
qotd: does it bother y’all or am i just crazy? 😂
I am trying to choose books for our #subscriptionboxes , (arriving in letterboxes shortly) BUT I keep getting distracted by amazing titles like this and imagining this is all it would take for me to become an illustrator.
Have you read any of Dorothy Koomson’s novels? I found these two in Poundland, of all places, and thought I’d give them a go; while the covers do look rather ‘chick-lit’, I’ve heard her books compared to that of Liane Moriarty, who I really enjoy, so I’m definitely intrigued. Let me know what you think, and which one I should start with! 🌸💐🌹
