Couple of weeks ago I got the @nadegekrichards box. This box celebrated the release of Asylum 54.0 the box was filled so many amazing things! Like this candle and book sleeve. It was a really fun one time box.
I haven't had a chance to read it yet but I'm hoping I will be able to soon. I am in awe of this girl people. Nadège is incredibly talked at so many things it's sick.
My stress level us at Red. What are some ways besides reading you use to relax?
#lilbookishtags - #flatlay
Today is the day people! The day every single one of my children start school. I'm so happy! I can finally light some candles my flame obsessed kiddo will be in school. I have a few candles that I want to try out as my starter candles 😂😂. I flove Kylie Scott. Mal Erikson of stage dive is absolutely one of my most favorite characters ever. If we could be best friends my life would be complete.
When Trust came out i was baffled on how the original cover could be YA. Half naked guy on the cover, I think not. But then it got a redesign. And normally i loathe redesigns. This time it worked.
#lilbookishtags - #coverlove
Its been a really busy day and I'm just now getting to post my photo for #lilbookishtags today's is #teatimetuesday so I grabbed my newest most favorite mug that I got from @enchanted_fandoms_ isn't it just the best. I filled it with some Korean jelly tea (actual name unknown at this time) @thats.sew.tiff got me into this stuff and its amazing hot or cold.
Today has been a stressful day and I could use a pick me up. What's something good that happened to you today?
I decided (a little late in the game) to join the #lilbookishtags challenge this month. Today's tag #bookrec I was digging in my bookshelves and this one just called out to me. I love The Gold Seer trilogy I thought it was a duology but I was so wrong there's a 3rd book!!! I'm so excited because I really thought book 2 wrapped up nicely.
I got my hands on Gold Mine and a few other new scents from @stubtailcandleco just the other day. Omg my nose loved them all. Today is the last day of the Labor Day SALE so I would highly recommend you check them out. If you don't make it today that's cool just use my code PAPERRDOLLS to save when you check out 😉.
Happy #socksunday .
Its been a busy day and its only going to get busier! My kids start school sometime this week I will probably figure this out tomorrow. So to celebrate I have some super cute pencil socks.
I decided to go with All The Bright Places because of school starting and I think it's a beautiful story. However I haven't finished it it broke my heart in so many pieces that I'm still on page 295.
What are some of your favorite books with slightly a school setting?
Day 22 of #frenchiefantasyaugust : #bookstagramkindness
Ima be honest sometimes bookstagram is terrible for my mental health (that delightful algorithm) but usually it's pretty freaking awesome.
I have met some amazing people. I've made no secret of the seasonal depression I've been dealing with this summer (gray skies make my soul rejoice, it's a good thing I like in oregon) one thing that has really helped me is my Instagram friends. I love talking about books looovvveee it.
Here are some (not all) of my absolute favorite people.
Guys it's Tuesday! My favorite day of the week if only for new releases. The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel is out today. I started reading it Saturday and Im really enjoying it. It's funny and entertaining. Oh oh oh and its a retelling of Persuasion. I'll let you all know how I feel about it when I'm done as of right now I'm really loving it.
Hope everyone is doing well! I'm so excited for this upcoming week so many good things happening! I've got family coming to visit and I mean that's always nice.
I decided to combo today and do a #signedbooksundays I haven't done one in awhile, this week's theme is unfinished series. I refuse to finish reading Winter because I don't want this magic to end. Maybe one day I'll grow a pair and finish it, doubtful.
Arent these socks the perfect match for the Lunar Chronicles though!
Hope your having great weekend! I'm off to clean, clean, clean!
Day 20 of #frenchiefantasyaugust : #diversereads
Man I'm really feeling this shot! Idk I've been trying to step up my insta game and maybe it's working.
Maybe it's just me and where my head is at these days, but we need more diverse books. Maybe I'm just silly but i really feel reading about diversity teaches us a little bit about empathy and understanding.
My husband often teases me with the amount of reading I do I could have been a doctor. He thinks I'm not learning anything from Reading fiction but what he doesn't understand and they learn a lot about the human condition and what drives us.
Day 18 of #frenchiefantasyaugust : #bookishrainbow
Idk about y'all but rainbows make my heart just happy! Idk why they just do. I think we all could use a little happiness in our lives.
I've had a really just difficult summer, seasonal depression is the worst. Thankfully I had my books and my friends to help me claw my way out of despair. @novel.novice @turn.the.chapter @returntoavalon @tiffanyelain y'all are the best 😘😘 I can't express enough how much your friendship means to me!
With things going on in not only my life but the world i can't help but 🤔 wonder how can I fix this, how can I help. I'm only one person I can't move mountains but maybe I don't need to move mountains but pebbles. Move enough pebbles and ill have that mountain right? So if I make a difference in one person's life each day then maybe just maybe I can be the change I want to see in this world.
What are some ways you can make a stranger smile?
Day 17 of #frenchiefantasyaugust : #openbook
I absolutely love this drawing. I bought my kids the illustrated copy of Harry Potter and the sorcerers stone a few years ago. It goes mainly untouched :( and it breaks my heart.
Did you know I'm completely obsessed with @enchanted_fandoms_
Probably hahaha. I had to grab this muggle mug last month. I adore it, I haven't brought myself to use it just yet though.. Lets be honest some of my mugs are just for show. I so highly recommend this shop so check then out.
Day 9 of #frenchiefantasyaugust : #booksnotbullies#bluebooks
Im pretty sure this edition of Strange the Dreamer is my go-to for a Blue Book.
This week is totally kicking my butt. I am only slightly functioning. The plus side is I've actually been having a pretty good week so far. Happy hump day!
How's your week so far? Any good plans for the weekend?
Day 8 of #frenchiefantasyaugust : #favoriteauthor
Ugghh I hate this question I really do. I have so many favorites but today I wanted to talk @jeffzentner I honestly can't get over how beautifully he writes. 😍😍😍 its like magic. " I'm tired of watching children perish. I'm tired of watching the world grind up gentle people. I'm tired of outliving those I shouldn't be outliving. I've made books my life because they let me escape this world of cold tea and savagery. I needed to say that out loud to somebody other than my cats please take care of yourselves, my young friends."
The Serpent King.
His words give me chills. I cannot recommend these book enough.
I have a crazy week ahead of me, so much work to be done. I'm hoping to relax today. I did get to spend a good portion of the day with an amazing friend of mine @novel.novice she's just the bees knees.
I think I'm going to curl up and read, or I'm going to watch some Game of Thrones. I can't decide!
I hope that you're having a great weekend and enjoying the summer. I am not enjoying the summer but I get that some people do.

Day 6 of #frenchiefantasyaugust : #otp
So I have a twist on this. I believe a one true pair can be friends. I so I choose Darrow and Sevro. Honestly I could see myself being someones Servo. I'll never be the hero but I will be the savage best friend.
I listened to these books the first time around now I'm doing a slow re read and making sure to flag all my favorite lines because one way or another I'm going to have RR merch.
Who are your favorite duo?
Day 5 of #frenchiefantasyaugust : #bookstack
This friends is my tbr stack. After savagely attacking my tbr last month I thought I could do this again and so far. Nope. Not happening 😂😂. I am back in zombie mode. I could not turn my brain off to save my life last night. I'm really upset with my past self I needed that sleep. I'm working 16 hours today and the best part about that is a little thing I like to call air conditioning.
How many books are on your tbr this month? And what's on top?
Day 4 of #frenchiefantasyaugust : #bookandfood
I'm so anxious to read THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END by @adamsilvera I haven't read anything by him just yet, own a few though. So this will be a first I've heard nothing but good things about his writing.
Now i just need to finish one of the 3 I'm reading so I can get on it! What are you reading this weekend?
Day 3 of #frenchiefantasyaugust : #coverbuy
This cover is gorgeous. I really do love it. However I was not crazy about the story. Unpopular opinion I know. But to each their own right? I've flirted with the idea of doing a giveaway because it is signed. Meh, maybe one day.
I feel like a zombie today. I probably got 3 hours of sleep. Logans seizures were out of control last night and at some point his feeding tube popped out. I won't bore you with the details.
Day 2 of #frenchiefantasyaugust : #waitingonwednesday
Having been born in a border town I'm immediately drawn to stories of things that happen right across the border. I'm obsessed with the cartels and the many women who go missing in Juarez.
I cannot wait to read this one. It's very high in my tbr. I don't even know where to start with my tbr it's insane!
It's out next month. I'm going to need y'all to grab it so we can discuss!
Huge thanks to @sourcebooksfire
For sending me this arc 😘😘
Day 1 of #frenchiefantasyaugust : #bookspinebeauty
So I thought this spine was pretty cute. I haven't read this book but it screams summer read to me so we shall see maybe I'll get to it.
I'm super stoked and excited. Tonight I'm going to see my fave band @deltarae my husband is going but under great duress 😂 Im sure he will have a fabulous time.
Have you gone to any concerts this summer? My summer bucket list says I need one more so hopefully I find another one to attend.
I should be finishing up Forever instead I'm having a lazy Sunday watching GoT. I haven't had a lazy day in quite awhile it's... Strange.
I am so over summer. I have a serious case of summer time blues. The only thing keeping me afloat seems to be my books.
Hope you're enjoying your weekend.
Day 30 of #treasurenoveljuly : July wrap up.
In the most book nerdiest way possible I was a savage this month. I read a total of 15 and a half books (some books not pictured because they were audios from the library) . By tomorrow. I will have completed 16. I blame amazing stories and the lack of socialization my phone is pretty quiet these days.
My favorite is Midnight at the Electric. With the Queens thief books a super close second. I honestly can't believe I read so much. Hopefully I'll keep up the momentum next month because my tbr pile is HUGE.
Day 26 of #treasurenoveljuly : bookmarked.
I looovvveee me some @janestinythings bookmarks. I also love matching my books and bookmarks. I'm a sucker for matchy matchy. These Tatiana and Alexander bookmarks make me swoon. Now I really need to start this book. I swear it's getting higher and higher on the tbr.
