Happy December 1st everyone ☺
What's a popular book you've DNF;ed?
I started Stalking Jack The Ripper a few weeks ago but I can't for the life of me get through it, I really thought I'd like this book but I'm about 50pages into it and I don't care about anything so I will probably DNF this one for now :( but I will give it a second chance another time. ❄
I've been struggling with lighting now during the winter times so I thought I'd try out a darker theme and see how that goes.

I hope you're all enjoying your weekend! I'm slightly disappointed by the bookstagram community lately, because i feel like I'm the only one trying to interact and give love to other people's posts. I was thinking to take a break to get over it, but then again, I may just need to stop caring and stop giving love to some people. It sounds bad and maybe selfish, but I feel like with any type of relationship , you should give and take. This also goes for me. If you feel like you give love to me and I never give it back to you, please let me know. This place needs to be a happy place for all of us. .

When I read this book (a long time ago) I loved it and since then I've always wanted to reread it. It is such a great story about accepting your differences. I highly recommend this book!

Hello, my lovelies! I hope you’re having a wonderful start to the weekend 😍
I have had my eye on this book for MONTHS and have wanted to buy it many times but as it is a hardcover, it’s a lot more expensive than a paperback. However, when I was in Canberra, I found it on sale for the same price as a paperback!!! I was so excited and bought it immediately 😂

It’s already Wednesday! Wow this week is going quickly! It’s taking me forever to get through One of Us is Lying, and there’s so much else I want to get to! What are you reading currently? Are you liking it?
The prompt for #bamoctober18 is Cozy Sweater-an old favorite. Where the Heart Is has been one of those books I really enjoyed and consistently go back to since middle school. •

I'm gonna tag: @wildflower.blvd @kandybookventures @arisbookcourt @rainbowsandbookshelves @courtofbingereading @brutal.reads @joyfulreader .
Is there a fictional family more likeable than the Blackthorns? I love each member for a different reason, and I adore they're relationships even though they're not all sunshine and happiness - remember when Julian got super mad at Mark for letting Tavvy sit in a big bag of sugar? - but that's how things are with one's siblings! It's complicated and difficult, and sometimes you just want to kick them really hard, but in the end you're family 💗
The Godspawn are also bound to each other by blood - but not their own. Their past history binds them together, and this relationship is often uneasy, if not downright disturbing at times...

I love fairy tales, myths, and legends. While Peter Pan doesn’t fit neatly into any of these boxes, he creates that happy feeling while reading in a similar way. This prequel trilogy and extra dive into how Peter Pan became forever young on the island of Neverland as well exploring some of his many adventures. These are just a fun read. .

"Books, after all, were expensive, and it was better to eat than read. So the little shelf in Sophie's bedroom contained a selection of volumes amassed lovingly over successive birthdays and Christmases, and the idea of an entire gilded library, old and venerable, covered with the fingerprints of one's ancestors, never needing to be returned to it's rightful owner-why, it stole her will!"- A Certain Age
🍃Happy Sunday, bookwyrms and novelnerds! While I haven't read this gorgeous book yet, I did read The Summer Wives by Williams two months ago and was captivated and charmed, utterly. Judging by this sample quote, I think this book and I will get along just fine. 😄
🍃 Do you have a book you received as a gift that you adore? Is there a certain book that YOU like to bestow upon others as a gift? 🍃 Yesterday after shift, a co-worker gave me the second and third TWD compendiums and two companion books, yay! And I have gifted so many copies of Stardust over the years, I've lost count.

Мир полон странностей и неопределенностей. Если не знаешь, как дальше, куда дальше, что дальше, думай и говори о хорошем. Поэтому сегодня мы говорим о книгах.
Грустно, когда любимые книги не издаются. Не издаются потому что вне жанра, потому что не ясна их целевая аудитория, потому что люди не любят длинные описания, да, в конце концов, потому, что в мире много идиотов.
Грустно, но так и есть.
Но сейчас я не об этом. Пока.
А я о "Чудовых лугах". Это холодная осень, медленно переходящая в зиму. Это странная любовь, которой лучше бы и не. Это полуночный демон, который приходит от снега до льда и от льда до снега. Это зло, которое не зло, и добро, которое не добро. Это бесконечные болота и пустующий, но вечно ждущий город. Это финал, без слащавого "долго и счастливо". Это "Чудовы луга". Нет, не от слова "чудо". Совсем не от него.
