⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #Soundless by #richellemead was such a great read! It’s very unique and I loved the characters. For as long as Fei can remember, no one in her village has been able to hear. Rocky terrain and frequent avalanches make it impossible to leave the village, so Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.
When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink. Many go hungry. Fei and all the people she loves are plunged into crisis, with nothing to look forward to but darkness and starvation.

Come state? Da notare in foto come sono scassate (e direi anche allacciate male) le mie punte😅😲

Un libro di cui aspettate con ansia l'uscita❓
Hey hey! How you all doing? I know I have been a little MIA lately. The kiddos are on summer break and between working longer hours and trying to spend as much time with them as possible before school starts I haven't had much time for social media. I'm also in the process of reorganizing and redecorating things around the house. And to top it off, my AC is acting up. Because you know, it's not like I need AC in 95 degree weather! So yeah, It's been a little hectic. I'll be putting together my July giveaway soon. During my reorganizing I found a box of signed books I ordered. So I gotz a lot of goodies. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
Bare with me and thanks for sticking around!
The amount of ice cream that I have been enjoying this summer is ridiculous. I'm just loving every bit I can get my hands on.
Since this ice cream cone is dangerously close to my pristine book, what's the worst food stain that you've ever accidentally inflicted on one of your books? What was the book?
I'm a chocolate lover, so there have been a few times that chocolate has fallen on the beloved pages of some of my books. But, admittedly, no book particularly comes to mind...I usually quickly turn the page, embarrassed, and try to forget that it ever happened.😂😂
Also, I know not everyone eats or snacks around their books. So here is another fun question: What's your favorite ice cream flavor or brand?
I love mint ice cream and raspberry sorbet!
QOTD: What would you do if you had to be away for a month and you had to decide what to do with your bookstagram????
It's time for my Summer VC and I am really confused. I have to decide whether to stop posting for a month or to take pics before I leave and posting almost every day....
I really do not know what to do guys 😭😭
So if someone knows how to deal with it I'm glad to hear u. I'm open to your ideas!!!!
I can see why humans succumb to the beautiful nightmare of the Court, why they willingly drown in it 🌸
This. Book. I am in love. I received this book in a FairyLoot box this year (January if I’m correct) and I’m only now getting round to reading it and I really wish I’d read it sooner. It is so so good. I’ve got just around 100 pages left and I’m really dragging it out, I don’t want it to end 😭 Also this candle smells absolutely divine! Now that I know who the characters are, the smell is so perfect for Cardan 😍
Are there any books you’ve put off reading for a while? Any particular reasons why? .
Last week I finished reading Mammoth by @jillwritesbooks (published by @turnerpub who gave me this book for free in exchange for a review) and it was so damn cute. I loved that the main character was a plus sized fashion blogger who geeks out over paleontology. Such a refreshing perspective. -
QOTD: What do you geek out over?
AOTD: Obviously books, but also Disney, Harry Styles, Marvel, and baseball.
Bookssss! Being a bookworm isn't easy at all. All the time you have to beg your mother to take you to a book store or either a book fair. And the answer is usually a big NOOO which you have turn it into a YESS either by begging🙇♂️ or doing some chores for her.. Well thats how i always earn a trip to the bookstore, otherwise the answer is a flat no Cz your mom has her own reasons ; from *you read tooo much* to *what's your tablet for? Go download the pdf and read!*
Ahan! But your parents don't know the real feeling of having a book in your hands or the smell of new books! Oh god! 😍😍📚❤️📙 Well, luckily one of my friends tagged me on this post showing that liberty books is having a grand #BOOK_BAZAAR where you can have books on prices as low as 150 100 200 300. Well that was a real treat for me then! So I ended up in this book bazaar and got these two books. But unluckily I had to hurry up and didn't get a chance to give a proper look to the fair and just bought these two in a total mess! 🙁(dad was waiting out, mom was continuously trying to make me realize that we don't have much time and bro had to play his part as well Meray sar p sawar reh kar, y'know!🙁😣) So that's enough for today and I'll be coming up with reviews abt these books and comment down below if you want a full fledge review of both the books separately. ☺️ #hopeyouenjoythis . #bookworm#bookobsession#zeiniathecraziest#blogger#bookbazar#booksarelove !
This book is so beautiful and heartbreaking and just really amazing, but unfortunately there is no translation (at least I haven't heard about one).😔
Dieses Buch is so wunderschön und herzzerreißend. Ich musste beim lesen mehrmals weinen und es ist ein Buch, dass ich seit langer Zeit mal "nur" in zwei Tagen durchgelesen hab. Also falls ihr es noch nicht gelesen habt, lest es auf jedenfall. Eine absolute Empfehlung.🙈
Hello my loves! Happy Sunday!
How are you all? I’m in a mood where I want to do things but I also just want to be comfy and do nothing? Idk why. •
I saw the Incredibles 2 last night and it was absolutely fantastic. My friend and I were laughing so hard at points, and the action was just perfect. It was soooo good go and see it! I came home and had to find the first one online to rewatch it, because it had been years since I watched it. I absolutely love those movies, they’re so humorous, and I love how they’re aimed at all ages, not just kids. •
Anyways. Have you guys watched any really good movies recently? Let me know down below!
Have a fantastic Sunday friends ☺️
I'm almost halfway through The Song of Achilles and I'm really enjoying it! Because it is a universally known story, I don't think it's possible to spoil it for anyone. So I hope I'm allowed to say that I'm already preparing for being heartbroken 💔
My impressions so far:
🌊 I can't seem to be able to put it down, it's really addictive!
🌊 It absolutely lives up to the hype, Madeline Miller's writing is so easy to follow but still magical!
🌊 I used to read a lot of historical fiction bordering on myth/fantasy when I was a child and this book gives me a similar vibe. So I also feel nostalgic which is always good!
🌊 I didn't think it was possible to write such tasteful sex scenes, given that they're quite graphic. But whenever I read such a scene in lots of books it's either cheesy or full of clichés. Luckily Madeline Miller found a great balance and vocabulary to make this aspect of the novel enjoyable too.
🌊 No previous knowledge of the original myths is needed to like it. I haven't read them in a very long time but gradually everything came back as I was reading.
🌊 My only negative observation so far is that the text contains quite a few anachronisms! It's surprising because the author is a scholar of ancient Greece and Rome. I get it that the language is intentionally modern but I still think the characters shouldn't refer to concepts that didn't even exist back then. I don't have any examples ready right now, but I will look them up.
Do you agree or disagree with me on these points?
I'll hopefully finish the book in a few days and I'll be able to discuss it in more depth.
Ich hab gestern angefangen >>Das Reich Der Sieben Höfe<< zu lesen (unten findet ihr den Klappentext zu dem Buch) , da es so viele empfohlen haben. Heute Nacht🌕 um 2Uhr habe ich das Buch beendet😅. Was kann man da noch sagen. Man konnte sich durch den Schreibstil✒ der Autorin perfekt in die Welt🌍 der Fae und die Charaktere hineinversetzen. Als es zum Ende kam wurde ich von der Handlung die folgte etwas überrascht. Im ganzen kann man nur sagen das Buch ist bombastisch gut😍. Der einzigste Nachteil der mir während des ganzen Buches📖 aufgefallen ist ist, dass man erst ab Seite 250 angefangen hat den eigentlichen Kontent der Gechichte zu verstehen🤷🏻♀️, worüber man meiner Meinung nach ruhig hinwegsehen kann wenn man den Rest des Buches gelesen hat. Es verdient eindeutig 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟.

Sie hat ein Leben genommen.
Jetzt muss sie mit ihrem Herz dafür bezahlen. Die junge Jägerin Feyre wird in das sagenumwobene Reich der Fae entführt. Nichts ist dort, wie es scheint. Sicher ist nur eins: Sie muss einen Weg finden, um ihre Liebe zu retten. Oder ihre ganze Welt ist verloren.

Sorry for being MIA yesterday. We were a tad caught up with tracking updations and delivery ETAs for your boxes. You will hear from us soon about the July shippings too, now that June is done. The Mocha boxes are still to be shipped due to delay with Female Persuasion.
For August, we will try and figure out a way so that the 30% who want regulars and the 70% who want the minis are both able to get their way. That would mean a bit extra work but if it ends well, it will be worth it. So yes, August ‘To The Stars and Beyond’ Boxes have Funko pops! And then there is a mug, a gorgeous one at that. Moving on to the banner, when we say star Lords we don’t mean Gamora’s Star Lord 😬 we mean the actual Gods of the planets - Jupiter, Saturn and the rest. There are some cute illustrations of them combined with a banner & it looks stunning! •
We are getting back to your DMs one by one guys. Be a little patient here, weekends mean extra messages so cope up a little with us. •
