I'm not a huge fan of Regency romances, i enjoy them while I'm reading them but they all tend to blur together in my mind afterwards. I normally don't read one unless it comes highly recommended, which was the case with Slightly Dangerous by Mary Balogh. @lucyparkerauthor was very enthusiastic in recommending this Pride and Prejudice retelling, and I have to thank her for it because I stayed up until early morning to read this in one go. I was hooked right from the time Christine meets Wulfric! Actually I was laughing so hard. Christine is a smart heroine who is just so vibrant and full of life, a very pleasant character to read about. And she takes the dark and broody Duke of Bedwyn completely by surprise. I really enjoyed how Mary Balogh took elements of Pride and Prejudice but made the story completely her own. Had so much fun reading this book. Highly recommended for historical romance readers and fans of Jane Austen retellings. . . What's your favorite retelling of a classic? Or Pride and Prejudice in particular, if you have one?

“She's a princess and you're a jock," he says. He thrusts his chin toward Bronwyn, then at Nate. "And you're a brain. And you're a criminal. You're all walking teen-movie stereotypes.” - One Of Us Is Lying by Karen McManus __________________ Trying to pick out which book to read next. I think I might go with a shorter book this time. Definitely working on making a dent in my TBR before I get any new books. So far I’ve got two down now only about 50 more to go and about five of those books are over 500 pages. __________________ #karenmmcmanus #mirandakenneally #jennaevanswelch #megleder #bookstagram #books #booksofinstagram #bookquotes #bookcover #bookaddict #igreads #bookish #bookworm #bookstagramfeature #bookphotography #coverlove #booknerd #bibliophile #book #reading #bookboyfriend #booklovers #booklove #booklover #bookaholic #contemporaryromance #yabooks #yalit #ireadya #yafiction

"'I've always found that the most beautiful people, truly beautiful inside and out, are the ones who are quietly unaware of their effect.' His eyes searched mine intently, and for a moment we stood there toe to toe. 'The ones who throw their beauty around, waste what they have? Their beauty is only passing. It's just a shell hiding nothing but shadows and emptiness.'" - Jennifer L. Armentrout, Obsidian ☄️ . . *Filler Post* I knowwww, I'm sorry 😭. I'll post again on Friday.

Having a much needed slower day today. I might pop into town as we need to get Mia some more clothes (finally in 9-12) and she really needs jumpers. Apart from that I’ve not got much else on. So it’s enjoying breakfast and diving into my latest read, Chris Carter’s #thecaller Q. What’s your mid week plans? #unitedbookstagram #instabooklovers #instabookfeatures #booknerds #shinyhappybloggers #thegirlgang #bookworm #currentlyreading #epicreads #bookblogger #bookblog #bookbloggerlife #bookcomunity #bookstagramit #lovereading #bookshelves #bookcover #bookaddict #igreads #booknerigans #readingnow #thehappynow #flatlaystyle #littlestoriesofmylife #escapetheordinary #dailydose

If you could make a horcrux, what would it be? ⋆ I think a book would be too obvious so I'd say, a timepiece. I love pocketwatches a lot and wish I could collect but since I'm already collecting books, figures and Funkos, that might be pushing the limit 😂 ⋆ Do you collect anything other than books? ⋆ #tbrbooktag by the lovely @namastayreading 💖😘 🌌Most anticipated read: Obsidio 🌌Been there too long: The Chronicles of Narnia 🌌Afraid to start: All the Crooked Saints 🌌Bought because of someone: Lunar Chronicles 🌌Need to read asap: The Grisha Trilogy 🌌 Tagged or not, feel free to do this one! ⋆ 📓 I'm starting All the Crooked Saints tomorrow. Let me know if you want to join in 🤗#BookishLyWritey : Mushu Could think of other characters for this one but I went with Fawkes because he's absolutely amazing and I love his and Dumbledore's tandem 😍❤️#ampersand2018 : hangover ⋆ This stunning Fawkes bookmark is actually double sided and I'll be taking another photo of it sometime. Paris is so talented and I have a lot of faves from @inkandwonder.designs and this is one of them 😄
