HEAL ME by Alexandra Page @alexandrapagewrites
Magnolia Series Book 2
~ Blurb ~
The irresistible, emotionally charged, and steamy sequel to author Alexandra Page's Save Me.
Ellie is no stranger to the vicious grips of grief and guilt, and now, just when she had felt she could breathe again, they're back like a raging storm leaving her gasping for air with little hope of rescue. What do you do with guilt–how do you let it go? And how do you put to rest ghosts that won’t stay dead?
With her demons roaring louder than ever, and her secret laid bare before him, will Nik be able to put his own fears and doubts aside and help Ellie rise from the ashes of her past? Will she allow his unwavering devotion to help heal her shattered heart? Can she learn to forgive the unforgivable and live again despite her overwhelming grief?
Determined to believe that hope is the only thing stronger than fear, Nik and Ellie begin building a new life from the scattered pieces of their pasts and prove that love really does conquer all.
It's way too hot here right now and I'm melting😩, so I'm not in the mood to type a good caption (not that my other captains are real masterpieces 😑😂)
Anyway, I can't wait for October which means Halloween and hopefully cold weather 🖤
What are you planning to read for Halloween?🤔😈
I'm definitely going to try and read Dracula since I'll have a one week break🖤😈🖤
one bite and all your dreams will come true

What are your top five male characters? Preferably, ones that deserve more recognition!
Since today’s picture is about the Grishaverse…let’s talk about how awesome and sassy Nikolai is, shall we???? And how much he deserves his own series??? And how his cameo in Crooked Kingdom tickled me to no end???? And how I was rooting for him allllll the way in The Grisha Trilogy????
But, ahem, some other male characters who deserve more recognition:
—JEM CARSTAIRS who is pure and lovely and yes sassy af.
—NEVILLE LONGBOTTOM who has a heart of gold and who grew up pretty damn nicely.
—NOAH CZERNY who is a sweet adorable pup and DESERVED BETTER.
—and…MATTHIAS HELVAR. U KNOW WHAT I MEAN IF YOU’VE READ CROOKED KINGDOM.
Today has been pretty Awful in terms of work but I have one last Awful task to do and then hopefully I can run off to bed.
Pillow by the ever-amazing @eviebookish! She has a LOT of new designs in the shop and I've already added all of them to my wishlist❤️❤️❤️

I just really want to post this without a caption. I'm all captioned out. I haven't even posted on my blog for a couple weeks.
I think it's all just because I'm a great procrastinator and when I'm faced with something I fear, I'm paralyzed and rendered unable to complete my task. I worry what people are going to think about me and wind up doing nothing so they don't think anything and I disappear off the face of the earth.
"No slipping up if you slip away"
So maybe there's something on my mind after all.
If you're like me and you fear people's reactions and the future and the great mystery that it holds, I encourage you to just do it.
Take risks, introduce yourself, make friends, say things, disagree with people. You're young. You'll recover if something goes wrong. Think of yourself somewhere down the road looking back and regretting your indecision.
Be yourself. Be awesome.
And now I've got Dear Evan Hansen running through my head.😊
Ihr könnt euch gar nicht vorstellen, wie happy ich bin <3
Dass ich ein Drachenfan bin kann ich nicht leugnen ;)
Genauso hat sich Emily Thomsen mit "Medusas Fluch" in mein Herz geschrieben <3
Jetzt darf ich sie bei ihrem neuen Buch "Flerya - Drachenschlaf" unterstützen und freue mich wahnsinnig darauf! Vielen lieben Dank für dein Vertrauen, Emily <3
Und mal ehrlich, es sieht nicht nur genialst aus, es klingt auch noch so!!
Vorbestellt ist es ja bereits ;) Das Cover habe ich ja schon als signiertes Poster an meinem Regal hängen, weil ich es so liebe!
Wer braucht das Buch denn auch dringend?
Am 12. Oktober ist es schon soweit <3
Hier nochmal der Inhalt für euch:
Einst verbannte der Drachenkönig Gardorath die Herrscherin der Ghul und bewahrte damit das Reich vor dem Niedergang. Nur die Trägerin des magischen Armbandes Kemantie kann Aine befreien. Nichts anderes will Yadiran, der oberste Feldherr der dunklen Herrscherin und dabei ist ihm jedes Mittel recht. Er entführt Gardoraths Tochter Flerya, die untrennbar mit Kemantie verbunden ist und zieht sie als sein eigenes Kind auf. Ohne Erinnerung an ihre wahre Herkunft schenkt sie ihm ihre ganze Liebe. Doch der kaltblütige Seelenfresser wartet nur auf Fleryas sechzehnten Geburtstag. Es ist der Tag, an dem der Drache in ihr erwacht und sie Aine befreien wird. Der Tag an dem Yadiran ihren Tod fordert. Gebrochen vom Verrat und auf sich allein gestellt, versucht Flerya ihrem Häscher zu entrinnen – und den Untergang Emireschas abzuwenden. #flerya#emilythomsen#drachen#drachenmond#coverlove#bookstagram#booksofinstagram#book#bücherliebe#bücherwurm#buch#bookaddict#bookaholic
I finally finished Clockwork Princess the other day and it took me a while to write about it. First of... WTF 😭 I really liked how the resolution to the whole automaton issue. (SPOILERS ALERT) It was totally badass & unexpected. The ending left me feeling a bit hollow despite somehow getting what I want at the beginning. I felt truly devastated at what happened but its just how it is. As for the other characters though, my love for Magnus definitely got magnified after finishing this trilogy and he definitely still is my favourite character in the entire Shadowhunter series. I do love Henry & Charlotte so much I almost broke down when I thought Henry was going to die 😭😭😭 and that scene, again, made me love Magnus (& Charlotte) more as well. I can't wait for the Last Hours to be released because I want to read I I Charlotte, Henry & everyone else. Jem and Will's love for each other and for Tessa is definitely unconditional that their story only turned out that way because it was theirs and not anyone elses. It was an improbable kind of love that was unique to the three of them. I cannot say whether Tessa was lucky or unlucky given her situation for I myself wouldn't wish to be in her shoes but I do admire her for being herself for it definitely wasn't a breeze living that kind of life despite finding a special kind of love. Overall, I did love this trilogy and I cannot wait to read the other Shadowhunter series by the amazing Cassie Clare. It has been one hell of an emotional rollercoaster ride with this trilogy. 🍁🍁
I recommend this trilogy to you if you havent read it yet but brace yourselves for tears, love & amazing friendships. 🍁🍁

I posted a spoiler free book review and spoiler discussion for Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake. Click through to the link in my bio to read it! If you've read the book make sure to read the spoiler discussion because I have a lot of theories for book two!
"Non devo avere paura. La paura uccide la mente. La paura è la piccola morte che porta con sé l’annullamento totale. Guarderò in faccia la mia paura. Permetterò che mi calpesti e mi attraversi. E quando sarà passata, aprirò il mio occhio interiore e ne scruterò il percorso. Là dove andrà la paura non ci sarà più nulla. Soltanto io ci sarò."
-Dal film Dune
Con questo Thriller comprato anni fa, poichè la trama mi ricordava Hunger Games, rispondo al#coloredbooktag e ringrazio @chiaretta_books per avermi taggata con il colore verde.
Non l'ho ancira letto, ma arriverà il momento in cui gli darò una possibilità.
Taggo quelli in foto e chiunque altro voglia rispondere con il colore Rosso!
Alright you guys, it’s time for the big question😂 What are your thoughts on Allegiant, if you’ve read it? The Divergent Series is one of my favorites (You can read why at the link in my bio!), but Allegiant sort of blindsided me at the same time. 😂
As I managed to start and finish exit west yesterday I'm hoping to move onto invitation of a beheading this evening. Like most, my reading of Nabokov has been limited to Lolita whose prose I adored (even though the plot made me gag. It's still a phenomenal book, however and I highly recommend reading it. Just be prepared to be extremely uncomfortable). Therefore, I'm nervously exited to step into his work once more.
Invitation to a beheading is about political punishment, the penal system and in particular the death penalty. I believe it to be a satirical piece and have heard that it is often witty. Beyond this I know very little about it. If you have read it please let me know your thoughts.

#Day26 of #fallmangachallenge : least fav genre⠀
I don't have one!⠀
In the past, I'm not really into manga with gore, disturbing story, or extreme violence, but lately I try to be as open as possible. (if I don't, I would never know Junji Ito!) Because good story is good no matter what the genre, don't you think?⠀
So instead, I'll recommend this manga; I'm Home by Kei Ishizaka. It's about Hisashi Ieji, who lost his memory for the last 5 years after an accident. As much as he try to remember, all he can get is stories from people that he is once a despicable person. What happened? All he did in the last 5 years... why do Ieji feel it's not like him at all?⠀
This is a great manga if you're looking for drama and deep message! ⠀
Btw ini komik dewasa, ya~
Hisashi Ieji terbangun setelah mengalami kecelakaan, dan melihat orang asing di sisi tempat tidurnya. Ditambah lagi, orang-orang ini mengaku sebagai istri dan anaknya! Ieji sendiri tidak bisa melihat wajah mereka--yang terlihat hanyalah topeng-topeng.⠀
Berdasarkan diagnosis dokter, ternyata Ieji mengalami lupa ingatan sebagian. Ia melupakan kejadian selama 5 tahun ke belakang. Istri dan anak yang tak dikenalnya itu adalah keluarga baru Ieji, setelah Ieji bercerai dari istri pertamanya di dalam kurun waktu 5 tahun itu.⠀
Kemudian berbekal serangkaian kunci yang ia simpan, Ieji berkeliling mencari rumah-rumah yang cocok dengan kunci itu. Mulai dari kunci rumah mantan istrinya, kunci rumah orangtuanya, dan lain-lain. Di setiap kunjungan, apa saja yang ia lakukan selama 5 tahun mulai terungkap.⠀
Tapi semakin terungkap, Ieji semakin tidak menyukai fakta yang terpampang. Perilakunya selama 5 tahun itu terasa asing, seolah-olah ia mendengar cerita tentang orang lain yang sikapnya sangat menyebalkan dan banyak merugikan orang lain.⠀
Lalu apakah akhirnya Ieji bisa mendapatkan ingatannya kembali? Di antara semua kunci itu, yang manakah yang akan mengantarkan Ieji "pulang" ke "rumah"?⠀
