I took this photo recently after finishing this painting, which was almost a year ago. I was so proud after finishing and I still love it! I didn’t plan it at the time but the colors almost match the ones of these covers, which makes it so pleasing to look at together ;)
🇬🇧You know those books that stay in your TBR for so long that you forget that you have them? No? Is it just me? Oh..😂I've been wanting to start reading the Eragon series but it never seemed a good time. And, I really enjoyed reading Red Queen but for some reason I didn't move on to Glass Sword so..
2018! I'll do it this year 😁✌
QOTD: Is there any book that has been layed forgotten in your TBR?
🇵🇹 Sabem aqueles livros que fazem parte da vossa TBR durante tanto tempo que acabam por se esquecer que os têm? Não? É só comigo? Oh.. 😂 Tenho andado para ler a coleção do Eragon há muito tempo mas nunca me pareceu a altura indicada para começar. E, adorei ler Red Queen mas não sei bem porquê, não passei para o Glass Sword por isso..
2018! É este ano que os leio 😁✌
PDD: Existe algum livro que esteja esquecido na vossa TBR?
I finally posted after almost a week oops. This is a quote from “Don’t Call is Dead” by Danez Smith, I haven’t read the whole book but I’ve read a lot of the poems online. I definitely recommend picking up or reading a couple of then as well, their poetry is amazing! I still need to purchase a copy but this is one of my favourite poems in the collection: “The dog upstairs won't shut up, but I can't hate him, he's up there alone all day, making noise must be the only way he knows he's not a ghost.”
El libro del momento y una de las lecturas que elegí para este verano💛🌻.
John Green ha recibido tantas flores como críticas y su último libro no es la excepción. Las reseñas que he leído están divididas entre "más de lo mismo" Y "me encantó".
Por esta misma razón creo que los libros de John Green hay que vivirlos a tu manera, porque puede que lo ames o lo odies💛.
Espero pronto poder darles mi opinión acerca de este, las vacaciones me han ocupado demasiado tiempo pero pronto tendré tiempo para leer este libro y dejarles una reseña objetiva y sincera en el blog👌😘💛🌻.
Besos y gracias por tanto amor! 💛. #bookstagramer#bookblogging#instabook#instagood#ilovebooks#johngreen

He’s not looking to change his bad boy ways.
Arlo Jones is a badass millionaire rock star with the world at his feet. He lives the “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll” lifestyle to the max, and believes in working hard and playing harder. He’s a man who always gets what he wants, especially when it comes to women. Until he meets London.
She’s a damaged dancer not looking to fall.
All London Llwellyn wants is to rebuild her life following the tragic car accident that robbed her of her fiancé, and ended her career as a professional ballet dancer. She’s working two jobs to scrape together the cash to set up her own studio, and reinvent herself as a photographer. The last thing she wants is to get involved.
Arlo promises to always be there to catch her, but can London trust him enough to let herself fall?

What are you all reading? I’m currently reading an arc of Ryan’s Bed by TIJAN! This novel has me wanting to break down and cry so hard right now. I have to keep telling myself to keep it together. To be fair and not come across as sounding like an emotional sap I have to state, the subject in this novel, hits close to home for me.
If you’re looking for an angst filled novel with all the feels definitely pick up Ryan’s Bed by @tijansbooks on January 22nd . .
I crawled into Ryan Jensen's bed that first night by accident.
I barely knew him. I thought it was his sister's bed--her room. It took seconds to realize my error, and
I should've left... I didn't.
I didn't jump out.
I didn't get embarrassed.
And that night, in that moment, it was the only thing I craved.
I asked to stay. He let me, and I slept.
The truth? I never wanted to leave his bed. If I could've stayed forever, I would have. He became my
Because--four hours earlier--my twin sister killed herself.
The weather here has been fairly dreary this past week (at-least, by California standards). Slate grey skies, oppressive fog, and a wet chill hanging in the air. 🌫 I’m so grateful for books at times like these, when the world is a bit blank and unexciting. I’ve been delving back into some of my favorite stories this week. I’m determined to read myself into Spring. 😊🌷
Wow, ist die Qualität schlecht 😂 aber irgendwie will ich das Bild auch nicht löschen 😂
Ich bin ja kein Fan von Rainbow Shelfies. Klar sehen sie super aus, aber mein Ordnungstick kriegt da eine Krise wenn Reihen oder Autoren nicht zusammen stehen 😂 wenn ich mal ein Rainbow Shelfie mache, dann nur für ein paar Fotos und dann räume ich abends alles wieder zurück 😂
Thank you to #kidlitexchange#partner for getting Animal Encounters by Agnes Bellegris into my hands so I could read and review it for free.
My nephew is obsessed with animals so of course he enjoyed a book all about them. Each time you flip a page both sides are dedicated to a different animal with a big illustration and descriptions of how we interact with that particular animal. The words are in what I think is verse that I found a bit difficult. It's probably me. You'll never see me reading poetry because I just don't "get" it. I have no inner sense of rhythm. 🐱
| Bilinmeyen Adanın Öyküsü | #gnuryorumluyor
💛Bilinmeyen ve bilinmeyenler, her bakımdan, hayatımızın içerisindedir. Bazısı keşfedilmeyi beklerken bazısı da bilinmemezliği ile durur, durmayı tercih ederler demek de bir anlamda yanlış olmaz sanıyorum. Belki o şey, ilerleyen zaman içerisinde bulunur ya da bilinirse, değeri düşebilir. Aynı zamanda, keşfedilme arzusunun da zaman içerisinde yok olacağı düşüncesiyle kendi kabuğuna çekilebilir adeta o bilinmeyen. Fakat şöyle bir durum da vardır ki; o bilinmeyen varlık anlamında varsa, her anlamda bilinebilliyorsa ister istemez keşfedilmeyi de bekleyebilir.
💛Bilinmeyenler, sadece insan hayatına yönelik değildir. Bu noktaya açıklık getirecek olursam; yaşadığımız doğa, dünya, evren ve daha niteleyemediğim sonsuz sayıda yer ya da yerlerde bilinmeyen ile doludur. İşte tam bu noktada, bilinmeyeni keşfedilmesinde insanın ve etrafının arasında net bir ayrım oluşuyor. İnsan, bilinmeyeni keşfederken bir yerde kendi bilinmeyenlerini de irdelemeye başlıyor. Misal, kitap üzerinden yola çıkarak örneklendirme yapayım. Bir adam, hala dünya üzerinde bilinmeyen adanın olduğu kanısında. Bunun içinse, dürtüleri tarafından uyarılararak harekete geçmesi gerektiğine inanıyor. Akabinde o bilinmeyen adayı keşfetme arzusu da uyanmış oluyor. Ve bununla birlikte kendi bilinmeyenine, kendi iç dünyasına da keşfe çıkmış oluyor aynı zamanda.
💛Bilinmeyen Adanın Öyküsü, adından da anlaşılacağı üzere, bilinmeyenlerin var olduğunu hatta her zaman var olacağını; fazlasıyla kanıtlar nitelikte. Kitap; evrende, doğada bilinmeyenlerin olduğu kadar, insanın; her bir insanın kendisinin bilinmeyenlerinin olduğunu da okuyucusuna gösteriyor nitekim. Masal tadında, eşsiz bir zevk yaşatan eser, bir adamın, hala bilinmeyen adaların kalmadığına inanması bunun üzerine harekete geçmesiyle başlıyor.
💛Bu saydıklarımın yanında kitap içerisinde yapılan göndermeler ve tanrı-insan ilişkisinin karşılıklı diyaloglar içerisinde sorgulanması ve irdelenmesi de oldukça dikkat çeken detaylar arasında. Özellikle kitap içerisindeki şu cümle en iyi yapılan gönderme olmuş bana göre:
[you asked, i obeyed and now you have a shot including the journal with this months monthly spread ft. Ophelias fabulous coffee lip scrub, my watch and the thing i write my blogs on. new one up this weekend. super sorry for the lowest qual ever [not my fault though] and the inactivity, but classes are taking all i’ve got and more than ever before though i didn’t know increase was still possible, proved wrong i guess. remember though, coffee, a bath, yoga and chocolate are great sponsors for finals prepa-rations. ya go, people. you all got this. sending love and motivation your way.] 💻🗒✍🏻
The ebook cover of Sorcerer’s Stone doesn’t get nearly as much credit as it deserves! 😍 it’s so minimalistic and perfect! So including the ebook, i have 5 different versions of this book 🙃 do you guys have multiples of any book?
Today i am trying to get @_readeverything to finally start reading Throne of Glass because i have been wanting her to read it for so long! I'm brining my copy of it to work so that she has no excuse 😂
Lets all encourage Lisa together and hopefully she will finally start reading it.
Book 📚 Thelwell's Riding Academy, 1965 1st Edition ⠀
Why is riding so popular? Why do our children take to the saddle like the hordes of Ghengis Khan? The answer is simple. ⠀
The horse is the transport of the future. In a few short years from now when the last spaces on the roads are plugged, the internal combustion engine will be as obsolete as the hot air balloon. ⠀
When that day comes, woe to those who not learned how to get into a saddle. And studied the art of staying there. 🐎💕⠀
This book is perfect for any literary stable, both for children and adults. 😄⠀

This one was a surprise 4/5 for me. It was a quick read but I really enjoyed it. My only complaint is that there was a lot of dialogue in French, as the main characters are French Canadians, and it was lost on me. If a solid 15% or a book is in French, shouldn’t there be a disclaimer of sorts. Just saying... #iamatruck#kobo
