(Unbezahlte Werbung) Hallo zusammen! :)
Vor kurzem kam „Gemina“ aus dem @dtv_verlag bei mir an!
Habt ihr das Buch oder den 1. Teil schon gelesen? 😊
Morgen habe ich Geburtstag und ich habe irgendwie das Gefühl, dass die Zeit immer schneller vergeht, je älter man wird. 😂
Geht euch das manchmal auch so? 😅
Wann habt ihr eigentlich Geburtstag? 🎂 -
Was lest ihr momentan?
Habt noch einen schönen Abend! ✨
Hello all my lovely bookish friends!
How gorgeous is this lovely bookmark by @strangethebookmarkshop 😍 A few weeks ago I got like 20 bookmarks from this store and I'm in love with them all! There are so many different fandoms to choose from and they're such great quality!
I absolutely love the covers of the Illuminae series, especially the blue one (fave colour) and I really like seeing them all on my shelves! It's a shame that they're not my fave series though..
QOTD: What do you prefer; a pretty cover or a pretty spine?
✨Hello middle week✨
What is something weird or strange that has happened to you lately?
If you want my answer keeping reading😊
Yesterday I was playing with a story I've been tinkering on for a couple of months now.
Anyway, it involves a cat and I thought it would be cute if the cat was orange so I could name it pumpkin.
I wrote this down yesterday but said nothing to anyone about it.
I wake up this morning and look out my back door and there's stray orange cat in my yard😱
I have never seen this cat ever. And it looks really young.
The stray cat I feed now isn't thrilled with this new comer and chased him away before I could get to the other cat.
I went back to that paper and wrote down a million dollars. So maybe I'll wake up with a million dollars under my pillow😂😂 __________________________
I haven’t done a quote photo in a while. I used to do at least two a week but no ever seemed to really like them... or at least the likes said so. Maybe Instagram is just being bratty, but I love sharing my favorite quotes with my photography. Especially when my friend @daniss1994 is in the image. Doesn’t she look so amazing here? Best model ever.
How do you guys feel about quote photos? Be honest... because they do take time and putting together some random book photo is so much easier. Some days. Not this week. I did my photos for next week yesterday and it was a mess. I haven’t even put everything away. All the books are just about cluttering up the house. I think it went so badly because I’m still sick. ☹️ Wwwwwhhhhyyyyyy?????! I’ve got a life to get back to. Books to read. Writing to do. House to clean. It’s all in my sinuses now making looking out of my eyes impossible. Fingers crossed I wake up tomorrow feeling amazing. I have to... I write with my buddy tomorrow. That and I need to get my chapters off to critique group.

Ieri pomeriggio ho terminato Obsidio e finalmente anche io ho concluso la trilogia di Illuminae. La sensazione che mi ha suscitato è stata come quella alla fine delle Cronache Lunari: sono triste e dispiaciuta di dover lasciare questi personaggi, però sono contenta del finale.
In questo volume tutti i personaggi che abbiamo conosciuto nei volumi precedenti si uniscono per cercare di sistemare la situazione, lasciatemi dire che ho amato tutte le relazioni che si creano tra i personaggi, soprattutto ho apprezzato l'amicizia tra Ezra e Nik! Oltre alle vecchie conoscenze si aggiungono due nuovi "protagonisti" Asha e Rhys, purtroppo però non mi sono affezionata più di tanto perché hanno un ruolo più risicato data la presenza massicia degli altri compagni. Comunque l'ho trovato come sempre una lettura adrenalinica, ricca di azione. A mio parere è una degna conclusione della trilogia.
E quante risate 😂
Q: avete concluso qualche serie o trilogia quest'anno? Quali?
Gerade habe ich "Obsidio" und damit das dritte und letzte Buch der Illuminae Files beendet. Das Buch und die Reihe haben mir sehr gut gefallen und ich würde sie auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen. So etwas in der Art, also ein Buch dargestellt als Aktenform, Chatverläufen und Bildern, habe ich so noch nicht gelesen und ich finde es ist eine interessante Umsetzung. Die Storyline der einzelnen Bücher war interessant, aber besonders die Zusammenhänge der Bücher und der Personen fand ich spannend. Ich denke diese Reihe ist ein guter Einstieg ins Sci-Fi Genre der Jugendliteratur.📚
[might count as unpaid advertisement because I tagged someone 🙄] The other thing that kept me from reading this weekend (besides AC) was definitely this series 🙈 my boyfriend and I had watched the first season already when it was on TV a while ago but then we missed the other seasons and as it isn't on any streaming subscription we have, we totally forgot about it. But @bellavitascreations reminded me about it a bit ago and now we finally bought the DVDs 😍 and we rewatched the whole season in one night 😂
I was quite surprised that I love it so much because I usually don't like dystopian/futuristic things and there's so much teenage romance in it, but it's just sooo good 😍 I also wanted to pick up the book but then I looked at the reviews and it seems like the series is so much better 😱 plus there's no Lincoln in the book?!?!
Guess who my favourite female character is and which cosplay just made it onto my list for future projects? 😍
Also does anyone have any recommendations for something similar to The100 or the Illuminae series? So anything dystopian/sci-fi really 😂
Buongiorno lettori! Un'altra domenica è giunta e ciò significa altro appuntamento con la rubrica #disneyinbooks , in collaborazione con @cupcakeandbooks_2.0. Se non l'avete ancora fatto, vi consiglio di andare a recuperare i nostri post precedenti (basta cliccare sull'ashtag).
🎬Il film di oggi è: MULAN 🐲.
📚 Libro consigliato: ILLUMINAE 🛰.
Quali sono i loro punti in comune?
⏺️Identità nascosta: per proteggere il padre malato nell'andare in guerra, Mulan prende il suo posto, celando la sua identità travestendosi da uomo. La stessa cosa possiamo trovarla in Kady, essendo un hacker, la sua identità rimane all'oscuro.
⏺️Mulan / Kady: credo che siano un esempio di forza d'animo e coraggio femminile. Mulan riesce a salvare la Cina sconfiggendo Attila, il capo degli Unni. Non era concepibile, a quei tempi, che una donna entrasse nell'esercito, imparasse a combattere e tanto meno diventare un'eroina. Insomma, la donna doveva stare al suo posto ed occuparsi della casa e del marito. Nonostante i pregiudizi, Mulan non ha mollato ed è diventata una grande donna. Dall'altro lato abbiamo Kady, una ragazzina agli occhi di tutti quegli adulti, che va controcorrente, infiltrandosi sulla nave da guerra Alexander. L'equipaggio di questa nave è in parte morto e in parte infetto da un batterio che lo rende molto pericoloso, ma Kady affronta ogni avversità per salvare i componenti della nave Hypatia da un attacco più che mortale. È solo grazie a lei che più di 2000 persone sono sopravvissute ad un potenziale attacco catastrofico diventando, così, una vera eroina.
⏺️Mushu / A.I.D.A.N: entrambi aiutano la protagonista. Mushu aiuterà Mulan nel suo percorso e la sosterrà nei momenti più difficili. Mentre AIDAN, nonostante sia il cattivo della situazione, sarà di vitale importanza per Kady, fornirà il giusto supporto per far sì che la ragazza salvi quelle persone.
Fateci sapere, nei commenti, cosa ne pensate, se avete visto il film, letto il libro o anche cosa avreste consigliato voi!
Yesterday was my 16th birthday and I got myself this beauty! 😍 I really love what they did with the cover, the transparent parts with the naked book 💗
I was tagged by wonderful @yabibliophile413 to do the #celebrationofme tag! 💜
💗 Favourite physical feature: My eyes 😍
💗 Favourite ability: apparently I'm shy in a way people get comfortable 😅
💗 I'm working on: being less shy and going out more
💗 I'm proud that: I know myself well
💗 I'm trying to learn: how to improve myself (physically and psychologically)
💗 Favourite way to treat myself: going out or buying myself something
💗 I feel almost at peace when: I'm with the people I love
💗 My advice to those stuggling to love themselves: know yourself, know what you like and don't like and don't be too harsh on yourself. Nobody is perfect, but you can try to be the best version of you ❤️
“The universe owes you nothing, Kady. It has already given you everything, after all. It was here long before you, and it will go on long after you. The only way it will remember you is to do something worth remembrance.” - Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff, Illuminae ✨ .
Happy Saturday! To all my friends who are going to be at the @chapterssouthlondon1 book signing today, have the most fun! I am beyond jealous... like words can’t really convey my jealousy 😭 I wanted to be there so badly, but sadly it just wasn’t mean to be. If anyone wants to tell @kelleyarmstrongauthor that I love her, I would truly appreciate it. The candle in this picture is from @librarylights and it smells like a creamsicle dream. I can’t get over how delicious the smell is. What are everyone’s weekend plans? Tomorrow I’m heading back to school, and tonight is the Leafs game, but otherwise not much planned for me!
QOTD: Chocolate Croissant or Chocolate Chip Cookie?
AOTD: Chocolate croissant 🥐🤤 always croissants!

Anyone have those books you picked “knowing” won’t be for you, only to find yourself sucked into a story you can’t imagine not having it your life? Enter Illuminae Files for me. What. An. Experience. These books were 😱🤯
I immediately made my husband start them so I wasn’t the only mind-blown members my household.

💬 QOTD: Who is your OTP?
⭐⭐⭐ REVIEW - ILLUMINAE
Unpopular opinion alert! I did not love this book. I first discovered it via @abookishheather and was intrigued by the premise. And don't get me wrong, this was a solid YA scifi thriller with an enjoyable dose of humour. Girl meets boy, girl loses boy (and family and planet), then girl gets trapped on zombie-infested spaceships trying to rescue said boy. It's a fast-paced, action-packed adventure, but the character development is non-existent and the world-building is bare bones, so I didn't find Ezra/Kady to be a OTP. I'll admit that reading the ebook was a mistake: the format doesn't do justice to the (gimmicky?) word art. Lastly, have I mentioned how much zombies/disease give me nightmares? Because yeah. *shudder*

The Illuminae Files is one of my favourite series and I definitely love the 1st book, Illuminae, the most.
Usually in trilogies I enjoy the 1st book the most, the 2nd one often is slow, and especially in fantasy the 3rd one usually contains some big end-battle that I find boring.🤷🏼♀️ Which book in trilogies is usually your favourite?
Surprise everyone!! Welcome to round 2 of my Booksta-DND-Giveaway 😈 I was going to wait but.... muahahahaha *insert crazy villain laugh and hand rubbing*

You are on a space station. However, unbeknownst to you and everyone else, there are giant alien parasites on the loose in the ship and - surprise! - mercs have been brought aboard. You can:
A - make a break for it and try to jump into a shuttle, flying away in hopes of not being pursued?
B - stay and fight for your home.
Good luck everyone. Just remember to STAY ALIVE 😈
#witchyreadsoctober - Hexes and Curses: Favorite Villain - I know hes probably not a villain, but AIDAN. because he has villain-like tendencies.
#iamobsessedmaastober - Nesryn: Badass Female - Hannah Freakin Donnelly. 🤩🤩
#wickedbooktober - Favorite LGBTQ Char - Sal from Mask of Shadows is great. Gender fluid characters need more representation!!
#readingpages - Jack Skellington Day: Black and White
#onceuponaretelling - Queen of Hearts
#getsupernaturalchallenge - I Have A Little Hell To Raise - though not literally, Hannah does raise some serious hell around the station 🤩 and of course Kady does her fair share in Illuminae. I cannot wait for my buddy read of Obsidio starting tomorrow with @ve_xo!! 🤩🤩
#spookykindoflove - Cozy Read: Stormy Night Read - For me, I'd choose the Illuminae files but only because I would be binging and not caring about the storm. 🤣
