There are some books that just stack so beautifully together. When I’m looking for book photo inspo, I sometimes feel incredibly drawn to specific combinations. Aren’t these spines beautiful? 💕📚

What are some of your favourite book photo props? Sometimes I’ll come across something like these cherries, or whatever I’ve baked and can’t stop thinking about the potential photo until I’ve taken it. Also, this warm weather has made me really love brighter pictures. It’s always nice to have a change, right? 📚🍒

Summer is here and with it comes delicious fruit and exciting reads straight from my bookshelves. My mom and I love afternoons full of cool cherries and a nice glass of cold beer. 🌞📚🍒

Do you have favourite summer routines that you’re looking forward to enjoying (that you can do while social distancing!)? 🤔📖

When Doris Lessing said ‘there is only one way to read, which is to browse in libraries and bookshops, picking up books that attract you, reading only those, dropping them when they bore you, skipping the parts that drag-and never, never reading anything because you feel you ought, or because it is part of a trend or a movement. Remember that the book which bores you when you are twenty or thirty will open doors for you when you are forty or fifty-and vise versa. Don’t read a book out of its right time for you.’ I felt it in my bones but I still have a hard time fully committing to it

I did some reading outside yesterday and the weather was incredible! But you know what else was incredible? Girls Save the a World in This One! This was such a fun, addicting, and creepy read. I knew I would enjoy this one, but I didn’t anticipate loving it this much. It’s a story about best friends, a potential zombie apocalypse, finding yourself, and overcoming self-imposed limitations. 📚📚

What’s your favourite reading weather? 🤔📖

I’m a lover of bookmarks and aesthetically beautiful covers. I’ve been told that Lie With Me can be recommended alongside Call Me By Your Name, so I’m excited to have this book on my TBR! Doing a flat lay like this is a new thing for me, but I just loved the contrast between the black and white cover and the colourful bookmarks! 📚📖

Do you have a favourite bookmark? 🤔📚

I love all of the angles that a book stack can give you. There are so many possibilities and perspectives that you can explore with your camera. It’s like when many people read the same book—there’s always going to be a slightly (or very) different perspective from the one you’ve gained from the experience. 💜❤️📚

Have you ever read until the sun came up? 🤔📚

I love this “Book Power” pin, especially during this time. I’ve found a refuge in books these last couple of months that I thought I’d lost sometime last year. I had a conversation with my mom today about the power of imagination; how books help us feed our imaginations so we can try and escape the world for a while. Books are just that powerful. 📚💪🏽

What are some of your favourite books that have helped you escape into your imagination? 🤔📖

Reading is like thinking, like praying, like talking to a friend, like expressing your ideas, like listening to other people’s ideas, like listening to music, like looking at the view, like taking a walk on the beach.

Quarantine mixed with my birthday month (April) was rough because I went crazy on Book Outlet. These are all of the books I ordered from the website in April and at the beginning of May. Their books are just so well-priced and there were books I often couldn’t stop thinking about until I owned them. 😅📚

Have you purchased anything from Book Outlet during this quarantine? 🤔📖

Today is a gloomy day and, personally, I love it because it feels like the perfect reading weather! 😌📚

When I was reorganizing my bookshelves a few weeks ago, I realized how many trinkets I have on my shelves. Sure, I love them, but sometimes it gets to be too cluttered! I’m still trying to find that nice in-between of having too many things and just enough.

What’s your favourite bookshelf trinket? 🤔📚📖

((So with all this free time on my hands and when I’m not deep into a project of my own or something with the kids and online school, I picked up a few books I’ve been meaning to read again or for the first time. One book, The Ritual, by Adam Nevill, is what I wanna talk about today. There will be spoilers in my sort of review so everything is going to go down under the cut. The Ritual is also a Netflix original and based on the book and this is probably the only time you’ll ever hear me say the movie is better.

Keep reading

thank you for the tag @plantpages! this really required some thinking but was a lot of fun!

A character’s appearance that you misread and imagined differently 

I’m going to answer this one without really answering it… I love looking at fan art that explores different races and genders for characters. I think that so much of perception is based on self-perception, so we tend to imagine characters that look like us. I’ve loved seeing a brown Hermione or Disney princesses reimagined.

A character name that you’ve been pronouncing wrong 

Probably a lot lol. I try to avoid saying character’s names at all costs but here are a few… Celaena Sardothien, Cassiopeia Marie Sullivan, Nasuada and Murtagh, Daenerys Targaryen, Chaol Westfall, Tobias Eaton, and more (lol).

An overused trope that is your guilty pleasure 

Slow burn. I love a good hater turned lover or friendship to lover character arc, especially over an entire series. I just posted a picture about this, but some of my favorites off the top of my head are Hermione and Ron, Tessa and Will, and Annabeth and Percy.

A cliche character type that you like better onscreen than reading about  

I like a haughty royal more on screen than in the book. At least on screen, you can enjoy the over-the-top visuals and strutting, but when I read about them it just pisses me off.

A word/phrase that you learnt because of its use in a book 

Lol this is really tacky but I remember reading the “dam” scene in Percy Jackson when I was little and I thought that it was so funny that I used it quite a bit after I first read it. A play on words perfect for a budding pre-teen that wanted to prove she was a grownup.

Have you ever not read or completed a required reading book for school? 

Not that I know of. I always made sure to keep on top of school reading before I did my personal reading. I liked that it pushed me to read things that I wouldn’t pick up on my own.

Have you ever skipped a chapter from the POV of a character you weren’t interested in? 

I don’t think so? I remember I really hated Four’s POV in Allegiant because Veronica Roth wrote him like she wrote Tris… I felt like he was always acting like a 15 year old girl, but I got through it because I loved that series in spite of Four’s POV.

Have you ever canceled social plans to read? 

ha probably. Catch my cancelling social plans literally all the time because I’m the most painful introvert you’ll ever meet. More like I was planning on cancelling my plans anyway so I decided to go ahead and read…

this was actually such a fun and thoughtful tag so I’m going to tag some other friends who I think will enjoy it :) happy reading! @thebookbud @therefugeofbooks @i-breathe-therefore-i-read @elysiumwords @libri-et-coffea and everyone else that may want to take a few minutes to do this fun tag!!

I finished Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews at 4am today because I couldn’t stop listening to the story. I thought it was such a tragic story and there were moments that seriously broke my heart! There were some twists that I saw coming, and others that completely threw me off. I won’t be reading the sequel, but I think a lot of people should read this one—though I do recommend researching some of the triggers first! 📚📚

What is a book that has stayed with you long after you’ve read it? 🤔📖
