Hey guys So I finished this book a few days ago and I have to say I have mixed feelings about it. Overall I did enjoy it, and Fitz is a great character, but it took me over half the book to actually get into the story. I think writing this in first person was a mistake to be honest, I found it hard to grasp the world at first and to only get the perspective of a child really narrowed the plot, which felt very over the place to me. The writing is good though, and I did get hooked by the end! I'm excited to see where the story will go from here! :) . . #assassinsapprentice #robinhobb #thefarseertrilogy

I recently came across @beedooto post about a Rep Search, and I decided to instantly take a photo of a few of my favourite novels, with Walk On Earth A Stranger making the cut just now. For Christmas, I bought The Boys bookmarks from Beedoo, which were perfect for them and they also love, but I had been eyeing these ghosts for easily a year and decided to finally get them for myself. And I truly adore them, I love picking which ghost is going to be my bookmark for whatever is my current read. Beedoo was also kind enough to send me adorable stickers and an extra Rudolph bookmark Regardless of who Beedoo picks as their Reps, they are a wonderful company with amazing products that make my day. And for a (hopefully) funny fact about me - I'm intensely superstitious. Not "sweet mercy, a black cat" kind of superstitious (although, if black cat crosses your path and then returns across it, it's said to be good luck). My superstitions are more based in metaphysical and symbolism, plus much "trial and error". For example, I never take off my black tourmaline charm necklace, our sons' have a star with an evil eye hanging from the ceiling and facing their doorway, acorns are gathered yearly, and I just added a three-footed rabbit with the Irish Gaelic for "No Bad Luck" beneath it to my tattoo collection (which also includes two wishbones, a clover, a pair of pigs above my knees, and more). I also have a Spirit House, which has a steady supply of $40 whiskey offered to it. The brass fortune cookie is my newest addition to our household There is also much more, but too much to write out at three-something in the morning. But anyway, support Canadian art and check out Beedoo. #reppinthedoo #bookstagram #books #igreads #instabook #bookstagrammer #bookshelf #shelfie #bookshelfie #bookaddict #booklover #booklove #bibliophile #bookish #bookaholic #bookblogger #bookblog #irvinewelsh #walkonearthastranger #neilgaiman #readgoodbooks #superstitious #fortunecookie #beedoo #bookmark #ghosts #bookcover #funkopop #thelabyrinth #canadian

A Book Fairy in #costamesa enjoying a healthy lunch at @greenleafchopshop left a book for someone lucky! ABOUT THE BOOK In the mountains of rural Vermont, fall is a season of beauty and transformation . . . but not for Gianna Z. With less than one week to collect twenty-five leaves for a science project, her spot at cross-country sectionals is in serious peril. Plus with a dad who runs a funeral parlor out of the basement, a grandma who keeps losing her teeth, and a rival trying to steal her spot on the team, Gee just wishes life could leave her alone to finish her project. But when Nonna disappears one afternoon, suddenly some things seem more important than projects and races. Gianna Z. will have readers rooting for her-and maybe even for science projects-from the very first page of this funny and poignant novel about family, friendship, and being true to yourself. • • • • • #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairybusiness #2018 #books #bookstagram #bookworm #book #reading #parks #start2018great #booklover #read #bibliophile #happynewyear #booknerd #bookish #instabook #orangecountyreads #orangecounty #california #kidsbooks #scholastic #bookaddict #readingcounts

Day 18: Book Stack. Here are the books I have to read for my Gothic Novel class. Pretty excited to read them; I already finished The Castle of Otranto, which is pretty good even though I face palmed for almost the entirety of the last half of the book. #fangirljanuarychallenge #books #bookstagram #booklover #bookworm #bookchallenge #thecastleofotranto #horacewalpole #theitalian #annradcliffe #northangerabbey #janeausten #themonk #matthewlewis #calebwilliams #williamgodwin #frankenstein #maryshelley

'The Trial' by Franz Kafka finished 1/18. After reading Nabakov's 'Invitation to a Beheading' it seemed like the perfect time to read his Czech predecessor's novel, 'The Trial.' On the morning of his birthday, Josef K. wakes up under arrest for some unnamed crime- but free to go to work and home per usual as his trial goes on. This absurd trial is ruled over by magistrates whose 'law books' turn out to be pornography, lawyers whose only hope is to butter up judges, and judges who are never present. In this court one does not fight for innocence but for less guilt of crimes they are never told of. Despite his immense confusion and efforts, by his next birthday K.'s case is closed. Whether Kafka meant to comment on the insanity of bureaucracy or of existence is unclear but- we too, one day (maybe our next birthday or visit to the DMV), will wake up to realize our condemnation of existence, our arrest of life. Oh!- And we all die like dogs. Published posthumously 1924. . . . "Someone must have slandered Josef K., for one morning, without having done anything truly wrong, he was arrested." . . . #bibliophile #bookworm #bookstagram #fiction #bookaholic #booklover #bookporn #literature #igreads #booksuggestion #bookreview #currentlyreading #existentialism #hardback #philosophy #absurdism #camus #kafka #franzkafka

I don’t mean to, but I do judge a book by its cover. And I do like this cover. // Since I finished Shadow and Bone pretty quickly, I had to get Siege and Storm on Amazon. While I wait, I’ve started When Dimple Met Rishi. I’ve heard good reviews and I’m hoping I enjoy it. // Who goes to their appointments a little early so they can sit in the car and read a little bit? ‍️ // . . . . . #booknerd #bookstagram #books #ilovebooks #booklover #bookaddict #bookphotos #bibliophile #shelfie #bookish #bookworm #bookaholic #bookpic #bookporn #bookstack #currentlyreading #prettybooks #goodreads #bookoutlethaul #bookoutlet #whendimplemetrishi

Settling in for a cozy Thursday evening..

Todo lo que fuimos - Alberto Villarreal Todo lo que fuimos es una caótica y apasionada manifestación de amor de principio a fin, donde los momentos más dulces de una relación, y también los más amargos, son protagonistas. ¿Llegará el día en el que tus ojos se irán de mí? Estoy aterrado. Amanece una y otra y otra y otra vez y el naranja del cielo va borrando tus colores. ¿Habrá alguien que te quiera como yo te quise? Prometimos que mañana haríamos las cosas bien y mañana ya es hoy. Opinión: Esque este poemario es precioso, como lo dice la sinopsis es una manifestación de amor de principio a fin, hay mucha gente que dice que son varias historias y distintos protagonistas sin embargo es depende de la interpretación que se le dé al libro de cada persona, yo sigo mucho el trabajo como booktuber de Alberto y como mucha gente yo no soy muy fan de los libros escritos por estas personas, sin embargo Alberto llenó mis espectativas completamente, aparte pues orgullo mexicano, su forma de escribir es genial, me enamoré, lloré, me identifiqué y creo que es algo que puede pasar en la vida real y esque es eso lo que yo encontré en este libro, se hizo simplemente mío muy especial, Mil gracias Alberto, y como lo saben yo también me fijo mucho en lo ilustrado y este libro esta hecho con bellas ilustraciones. Súper recomendado. #booktube #bookstagram #booksmexico #megustaleermexico #megustaleer #todoloquefuimos #albertovillarreal #books #book #bookporn #libros #orgullomexicano #booklover #reader #lovebooks #bookit #bookface #poetry #booket #bookish #instabooks #booknerd

Guten Abend ihr Lieben Heute kommt ein etwas verspäteter Post. Ich war nach der Arbeit noch bei Ikea und habe mir etwas Deko gekauft. Die Weihnachtsdekoration muss ja jetzt auch mal wieder in den Keller und es wird Zeit für neues. Auch wenn man eigentlich gar nichts braucht ist der Einkaufswagen doch immer voll 🤔 geht es euch auch so? Gute Nacht euch allen #buch #book #books #bookish #bücher #bookworm #bookshelf #bookstagram #bookstagram #booklover #bookaholic #instabook #instabooks #bookstagram
