Do you like Romeo & Juliet, or tragic love stories in general? β€’ Set after the events in Romeo & Juliet, I loved the drama and intrigue in this book. I have a thing for retellings, and this was a rather fun one - it's not technically a retelling of course, but it was based on and set in the same world as the Shakespeare play. The writing was a bit of a let-down, but as I read the Dutch translation, I'm not sure if that's because of the original text or the translation. The attempt to stick to Shakespearean language felt very forced, because there were also a lot of very modern word choices that didn't fit at all. β€’ #melindataub #stillstarcrossed #celebratebooks #romeoandjuliet #shakespeare #retelling #bookish #booklove #booklover #bookworm #bookdragon #booknerd #booknerdigans #bookaddict #bookobsessed #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookblog #bookblogger #bookreview #bookreviewer #awesomedutchies

Hello! I loved the Midnight Texas books by Charlaine Harris, ever more than the Sookie Stackhouse novels but I have heard that the TV show is a bit average. Being in Australia, I have to wait till it goes to DVD because no networks picked it up here πŸ˜’ Is anyone watching the show who read the books??? I am hoping that maybe just people who didn't like or read the books hate the TV show, and that it isn't a disaster like when they turned my all time favourite series into a movie... I am not saying TMI movie was bad... I am saying it was horrendous. πŸ˜‚ * * * #midnighttexas #midnightcrossroads #charlaineharris #bookstotv #readthewriteact #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookish #bookworm #bookstagramfeature #instagood #bookphoto #books #bookishfeatures #bookstagramcontest #books #booklover #instaread #instabook #igreads #booknerd #bookreviewer #bookporn #instabook #bookblogger #instaread #booksofinstagram #bookphotography

Gotta love spending the evening at the library listening to an author speak! πŸ˜„πŸ“šπŸ“– #Repost @berriganshirelibraries (@get_repost) ・・・ Adele Ogier Jones was a wonderful guest speaker at the Berrigan Library on Tuesday night. Adele spoke about her book The Coffee Palace, a factional account of the Berrigan Coffee Palace and the Jones family that started it 121 years ago. Over 60 people came along and enjoyed the evening. The catering was provided by the Timor Immersion Program 2017. Adele kindly donated six copies of The Coffee Palace to raffle. It was a very worthwhile fundraiser to help provide medical supplies and other essentials for the people of Timor Leste #adeleogierjones #timorimmersionprogram2017 #coffeepalace #authorvisit #berriganshirelibraries

I've gone through many novels written by Indian and foreign authors,of which I found the work of the foreign authors, to be more grandeur and powerfully evocative. The storyline is absolutely amazing. It has the exact amount of drama, adventure, mystery and romance. You can never predict what's going to happen next. It gives you goosebumps. Talking about the Indian authors,their storyline is almost the same. I never found anything interesting at all. Moreover it is absolutely predictable, because of which it seems boring. It is the same old story where the two main characters fall in love with each other. Due to some reason they breakup and then comes the unrequited love. There is no thrill, no adventure, no mystery. It is all about romance. I'm not talking about all the authors but most of them use this style. It's high time you write something different and natural because one day the readers will lose interest in your books, just as I've lost. Thank You. 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊 #bookreview #bookstagram #bookworm #books #bookish #book #booklover #bibliophile #reading #bookblogger #booknerd #bookaddict #bookstagrammer #bookshelf #bookaholic #bookphotography #read #booklove #igreads #bookblog #goodreads #reader #bookstagramfeature #instabook #bookporn #booksofinstagram #review #bookreviewer #currentlyreading #booklovers

One of the best, @brookecumberland_xo sent me this amazing surprise book mail!! Make sure to grab your Kindle copy of this while it's free(ends 7/17)! β€’β€’β€’ Blurb: What if time was the only thing that kept you from falling in love? What if you knew when your time was up? πŸ’™ Kate Wesley knows about that all too well. When time is no longer on her side, she decides to live. To be spontaneous and live with no regrets. But her perfectly crafted plan is shattered when she meets Gabe and the moment he comes face to face with her, he realizes he doesn’t ever want to let go. No matter how fast she runs away. πŸ’™ Life has a tricky way of catching up to you, of forcing your hand, of leaving you with no choice. Kate accepts her destiny and pushes anyone out that threatens to get close. But how will she feel when Gabe pushes back? πŸ’™ Would you give your heart to someone if you knew it wouldn’t last forever? Would you risk it anyway for a chance at love? β€’β€’β€’ #brookesinstatribe β€’β€’β€’ πŸ’™πŸ¦ #bookstagram #bookblogger #bookreviewer #amreading #bookworm #booknerd #bibliophile #currentlyreading
