I could stare at stacks of books for days on end and never get tired
Ever since I saw @polly.florence map of Cambridge from @mapiful I knew I needed one or two maybe even three for my walls and my first choice was naturally Oslo.
Im missing Oslo something fierce today, it's been a week since I've been back home and I wish I could split myself in two leave 1/2 here and take the other 1/2 there
I've so many pictures from the total almost 2 months I've spent there this year, I was thinking of maybe putting a blog post together talking about my favorite places in Oslo you can visit if you ever find yourself there. Let me know if that's something you guys would be interested in checking out
As far as the map this was my personal choice because Oslo holds such a special place in my heart but @mapiful has any and all the cities you can think of? What city would you chose? -

Boys in books are just better My favorite book boyfriend though is my husband. He supports me in all that I do, he loves me unconditionally, and he only looks at me like I'm KIND OF crazy when a new book order shows up Today's our one year anniversary since getting married but it's our three year anniversary of being together. He's my rock, my best friend, and my biggest enabler. We both share a severely messed up sense of humor, a love of anything that's definitely not good for you foodwise, and a general dislike of people in general He's held me together through the hard times and held my hand through the bad. He buys me books just as often as I buy them for myself and that is how I knew he was a keeper I absolutely adore this man and couldn't imagine a life without him. Thank you for being you

Oláá, pessoal? Como estão?
Espero que a semana de vocês seja ótima.
Na semana retrasada, chegaram mais 2 livros solicitados por mim no pedido do mês de novembro.
Talvez eu esteja muito atrasado com tudo: resenhas, posts, mas espero que tudo corra bem.
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀
Os livros escolhidos são todos da autora Eloísa James.
Quando a bela domou a fera é um romance que trata sobre a releitura do tão famoso conto de fada A Bela e a Fera.
Já Um beijo à meia-noite, como também o nome já diz, é uma releitura de Cinderela. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀
Eu nunca li nenhum livro que fosse releitura. Sempre quis ler, mas nunca aparecer a oportunidade. Já que agora apareceu, não vou desperdiça-la, haha. Estou muito ansioso para lê-los, mas antes tenho que terminar a minha leitura atual.

O que vocês acham sobre esses livros?
GIVEAWAY! I am happy to partner with @gallerybooks to giveaway three copies of Sweet Tea and Sympathy by Molly Harper. Here is a portion of my review (the rest can be found on Goodreads):
This book was such a fun read! I have read a lot of heavier books lately, which I thoroughly enjoy, but was ready for something a little lighter, and Sweet Tea and Sympathy was the perfect choice. I love Molly Harper’s writing; it’s clever, often hilarious, and just plain fun. But what else would you expect from a book that is centered around a family business called the McCready Family Funeral Home and Bait Shop?! My favorite part of the book by far were the characters. Harper creates a group of loveable, entertaining, and ragtag bunch of characters that made me want to visit her fictional Lake Sackett and meet the various McCready’s. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a lighthearted story with some depth to it. I truly enjoyed reading each and every page.
To enter, simply:
1. follow me,
2. like this picture,
3. tag three friends in the comments. Three randomly selected winners will be chosen. This giveaway is not affiliated in any way with Instagram, and it’s U.S. only. Good luck to everyone. The giveaway ends at 9 p.m. CST on Friday, 12/15/17. I will announce the winners Saturday.
Happy Monday! The second book in the Winter Street series was packed with family dysfunction just like the first, but I didn’t enjoy it quite as much. I kind of always feel this way with follow ups, like I’m generally a little disappointed in the second book in a series or second season of a show or second album. Maybe it’s a sophomore slump? I don’t know. Anyone else feel this way?

I sure hope Cane tells Santa I've been good this year.
Book of the Month blew it out of the park this month with their selections. Three of the five were exclusives (Release dates are in January). How awesome is that! I really wanted all five books this month but I resisted the urge and picked Chalk Man. So excited to read this must read thriller of 2018. Anyone else pick this one?
Book of the Month makes for the perfect gift. Send me a message and I'll can send you my referral code. First book is only $9.99 and you get a cute tote bag.
Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor
In 1986, Eddie and his friends are just kids on the verge of adolescence. They spend their days biking around their sleepy little English village and looking for any taste of excitement they can get. The chalk men are their secret code; little chalk stick figures they leave for one another as messages only they can understand. But then a mysterious chalk man leads them right to a dismembered body, and nothing is ever the same.
In 2016, Eddie is fully grown, and thinks he's put his past behind him. But then he gets a letter in the mail, containing a single chalk stick figure. When it turns out that his friends got the same message, they think it could be a prank . . . until one of them turns up dead. That's when Eddie realizes that saving himself means finally figuring out what really happened all those years ago.
Expertly alternating between flashbacks and the present day, The Chalk Man is the very best kind of suspense novel, one where every character is wonderfully fleshed out and compelling, where every mystery has a satisfying payoff, and where the twists will shock even the savviest reader.

“The Universe is under no obligation to make sense to you.” –Neil deGrasse Tyson
My favorite astrophysicist, Neil Tyson never failed to excite me about the wonders of science. He explains complex scientific concepts in a lucid, simple manner.
