I am loving This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab. It’s a quicker read than the previous books I’ve read by her since it’s a YA, but it’s still full of really interesting characters, strong storylines, and fantastic writing. I am always impressed by Schwab and really want to get my hands on all of her books. . . . 🎶 I woke up this morning thinking it was Saturday so imagine my disappointment when I realized it was only Thursday! I know the week is almost over, but now it feels so much longer. I have big plans this weekend that include coffee, books, warm socks, and maybe a trip to the cider mill and I am really impatient to get to them! What are you guys looking forward to this weekend? . . . 🎶 #bookaholic #bookstagram #booknerdigans #bookshelf #bookstagrammer #bookstagramfeature #ootd #booksandclothes #booksandoutdoors #booklover #booksofinstagram #instabook #focalmarked #ilovebooks #booknerd #bookaddict #bookstagramfeature #bookish #goodreads #thissavagesong #monstersofverity #veschwab #victoriaschwab

Day 8: #spooktoberbookchallenge Hocus Pocus - Witch or Magic Books. ✨🔮✨💀 For today's witch book. I went with a favourite of mine. Warrior and Witch by Marie Brennan. "When a witch is born, a doppelgänger is created. For a witch to master her powers, the twin must be killed. But what happens when the doppelgänger survives?" I adore these books. Butt-kicking protagonists, both have to fight for their survival. One is an assassin, the other a witch waiting to be tested so she can harness her full powers. ✨🔮✨🔮✨🎃✨💀✨🔮✨🔮✨ #witch #warrior #doppelganger #mariebrennan ##bookchallenge #monthlychallenge #october #bookstagram #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookporn #magic #booksandskulls #booksofinstagram #bookproud #booksandoutdoors #natureandbooks #biblophile #badasschicks

I woke up this morning to our first snow fall of the year. Most of it had melted by the time I took this photo, but a sure sign that winter is here to stay. ❄️ I finished Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates and loved it. It was a poignant open letter to his son about the changing world and all the fears and hopes Coates has for his son's future. A must read - or even better a must listen to on audio. If you have read The Hate U Give then I highly recommend this book to accompany it. ❄️ Take your book outside #grimdragon ❄️ #firstsnowfall #betweentheworldandme #tanehisicoates #recentread #bookrecommendation #booksandoutdoors #bookstagram #nonfiction #igreads

I reread Hunger Games for my class and now I want to reread the whole series! I think I'm gonna finish Crooked Kingdoms first and maybe even start on Wonder Woman! ❤️ • • Happy #nationalreadabookday What are you currently reading!? 📚 P.S currently waiting by the mail for Tower of Dawn! Anyone else waiting?

Collecting an entire series of books can be hard and sometimes what you "think" you ordered is not what arrives. I've been working on collecting all of the Pulitzer Prize winners of fiction in paperback format. Some of the books are more difficult to find than others, although I wouldn't have thought The Bell of Adano would be one of them. Nonetheless I still managed to end up with a massive, what looks to be, photocopy version. Yikes! Talk about awkward to read. I quickly replaced it with a proper edition. ▪️ Not as advertised. #grimdragon ▪️ Has anyone read this book? It's still on my #TBR ▪️ #thebellofadano #johnhersey #pulitzerprize #pulitzer100 #booksandoutdoors #bookstagram #lovetoread #igreads #books #bookmisadventure #booksandplants #readinggoals #collecting #booknerd #bookcollection

My #septemberTBR is small as I have a few different things going on this month that will distract from my reading time. 🍂 ▫️My Pulitzer selection and group read with @kefuwa and @cbear_86 is James Micheners Tales of the South Pacific. ▫️I will also be group reading with @hobbsquad the second book in the Farseer Trilogy, Royal Assassin. ▫️My non-fiction selection is Smoke Gets in Your Eyes. ▫️Any other reads will all be on my #kobo as the days are getting darker. #goodbyesummer 🍂 I'm going to try and take all my pictures outside this month before the snow arrives in October. 🍂 Happy reading everyone! 🍂 #TBR #grimdragon 🍂 #bookstagram #readinggoals #booksandoutdoors #lovetoread #booknerd #bookstack #booksandflowers #fiction #fallreads #smokegetsinyoureyes #talesofthesouthpacific #happyreader

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr was another favourite read of mine from 2016. 🔸 I can't say enough good things about this book. It is the novel that broke my years long reading slump. I read it while on vacation and the chapters are wonderfully short so it is easy to read while busy and on the run. The story is beautiful and moving, following two young people as they struggle through very different life experiences during World War II. If you haven't yet checked out this book, you really must. 🔸 This book also was the start of my Pulitzer Prize reading challenge. I realized that I had already read a few and really loved them. 🔸 #fortheloveofreading #bookstagram #theardentbiblioreads #allthelightwecannotsee #anthonydoerr #fiction #sunset #booksandnature #booksandoutdoors #pulitzer100 #pulitzerprize #bookgeek #igreads #bookrecommendation
