#mgbooktober The book you wish you hadn’t read and why.
Considering I get rid of books I don’t like almost immediately after I read it, I can’t actually take a photo of those books.
So, I’ll just mention it here👇
Recently I read ERratum and wasn’t too impressed with it. It wasn’t bad, but it felt rushed and I felt the main characters were annoying. This is all my opinion though, and I’m sure people out there like it, but it wasn’t my favorite book😝
There are other books that I didn’t enjoy as much as I had hoped, but ERratum was the most recent Middle Grade one.
which season is your favourite?
i'm absolutely dreading fall and winter, as i prefer summer and spring, but today was a very sunny day and i unexpectedly had the day off, so i went to utrecht and found a nice quiet spot in the sun to read 💫 i took this picture there, along with a few others you'll see appearing at some point as well. it was such a nice way to spend my time and i'm gonna miss this for the next couple of months when it's too cold 😢

Melissa Trujillo knows suffering. She's tasted it, touched it, injected it. Sobriety is a gift, but it isn't enough to wash away her secrets.
Kieran O’Connell knows sacrifice. He's owned it, held it between his fingers, and felt it in his knees. Words are his freedom, and they've begun to fade.
Two different worlds, one moment and the Earth shifts—granting them a path.
His eyes meet hers. Her hand fits his.
Kieran finds his muse.
Melissa finds her new addiction.
When sin meets virtue, angels fall, and the truth, it becomes a blade. Together they’ll walk the sharp edge, but if her lies cut too deep, not even his words could save her… save them.

📚Cover Reveal📚 Dirty Reckless Mistake @givemebooksblog @clarejamesbooks Release Date: November 6, 2017
An NHL hotshot. A serious student. An unexpected offseason that brings the two together in the most combustible ways…
Yeah, I’ve never been good at following the rules off the ice:
Missing curfew? Check.
Playing with the puck bunnies? Check.
Letting my extracurriculars interfere with my game? Check.
Messing around with my manager’s daughter? Check, er, double check.
Now, it’s offseason and I’m not sure I even have a job next year. Plus, there was that stupid investment I made on a dare—a business that went belly up—that’s left me counting my pennies. But at least I still have my manager, Max, on my side. Yeah, thankfully he never found out about the fling I had with his oldest daughter, because I don’t know what I’d do without him. He’s more than a business partner, he’s family. And he promises to clean up my mess as long as I get out of dodge for a few months to get my head together.
Yes, I may be brilliant with the books, but I’m an idiot in life.
After finishing my master’s degree, I didn’t get the dream job everyone thought I would. I didn’t even get my backup position, or my backup backup. So, too embarrassed to go home, I decide to take a few months off and go into hiding instead.
That’s when I meet Him.
But I swear, I had no idea he was a hockey star. Or my dad’s client. Or my sister’s ex. Oh, this is so, so bad.

Heehee. Reminds of a great quote from Tom Robbins in his book 'Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climates' - 'there's birth, there's death and in between there's maintenance'. Sometimes we have to look at life with a whole lot of maniacal laughter 😂

5⭐️s #chocolatefortwo by @mariamurnanewriter #goodreads review: I loved this series as a whole. I am so glad that I read it. And I am so sad that it is over. But the ending was wonderful and all good and wonderful things must come to end so I'll be glad for the world that Murnane gave me to escape into for a little while. Waverly Bryson and her assembled cast of crazy, smart, sassy and funny friends and family were a joy to read. The friendship between both Waverly and Mackie and Andie was probably my favorite part over all of the series. I was sad to see the Waverly/Mackie scenes get less and less as the books moved on. But, at the same point I understood it. Because as in real life when what you're doing and where you are in your life shifts so does the amount of time you're able to spend and talk to your friends. That doesn't change your friendship at the core though and it was nice to see this message through out the books. #books#bookseries#bookstagram#waverlybryson#mariamurnane#goodreadschallenge#read#reading#readallthebooks#chicklit#romance#friendship
Reading is fun! Sometimes the words form some beautiful thoughts, unlocking emotions and ideas you didn't even know existed. This is from Shirley Jacksons book the Haunting of Hill House. Just a small paragraph, a taste of what all is there. It's only been about 4 months for me to get 200 pages in lol
Recently I stumbled upon Brianna Wiest's book "101 Essays That Will Change The Way You Think", and I love it. I can't say I agree with every single philosophy she presents, but I do believe pieces of the work are inspired by power and wisdom. --
"There is no grand moment in life. You don't wake up an say, 'Aha! I've made it!' Happiness is all in the details, the joy is all in the journey. Always has been, always will be."
You can't box up happiness and save it up for a rainy day. Not one particular event, or even person, can grant you that sort of fortune. The micro moments are often greater, but somehow less evaluated than the macro moments. As cliche and repetitive as it may seem, savoring up your happiness for one particular moment is pointless, and you'll have wasted so much time where you could have been happy in between. Whether it's the small journey of a car ride to a better destination, or if it's the metaphorical journey we call life, strive to find joy in all that you do. It really is the little things.
Tempting Daddy’s Boss
Series: Innocence Claimed Series @givemebooksblog @MadisonFayeSmut Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 16, 2017
I’m keeping her all to myself, whether she knows it or not.
An angel like little Lyra Worthington has no business being anywhere near a cold, calculating monster like me.
But she’s been mine since the second she poured herself into my world. And now, I’m never letting her go.
I know she’s off-limits.
I know she’s too young for me, and too innocent, and too untouched. But I bet she tastes like heaven and feels like sin, and tonight, I plan on finding out how right I am.
She’s tempting me - enticing me. She’s provoking me like a naughty little brat looking for trouble. And believe when I say, she’s going to find it with me.
I’ll call her angel. She’ll call me daddy.
I’m not – not really, of course. But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to protect her, and take care of her, and keep her safe from the whole damn world.
I play for keeps, I take what’s mine, and I keep what I take. And tonight, I’m taking her.
Super sweet, so filthy you’ll need a bath, and over-the-top wrong. But, if you’re looking for something wildly dirty, not really grounded in reality, and safe, this one’s for you! Utterly obsessed alpha hero, sassy, untouched heroine, and insta-love, smut, and sugary-sweetness galore. HEA with NO CHEATING!

I’ve not read much recently because I’ve either been sleeping or watching Netflix. I’m starting to feel better though so fingers crossed I’ll get back to it!

Day 17 of #Spookathon is: Spooky Title. I had no idea what this book is about but its title grabbed me straight away. And, well, the title pretty much describes the plot anyway- perfect! I haven't read this yet, it's on my ever-growing TBR pile.
«She wants the writers she admires to respect her work, but she also wants people who don't usually read books to enjoy these stories too. She doesn't want to write a book that a reader won't understand and would feel ashamed for not understanding. She thinks stories are about beauty. Beauty that is there to be admired by anyone, like a herd of clouds grazing overhead. She thinks people who are busy working for a living deserve beautiful little stories, because they don't have much time and are often tired. She has in mind a book that can be opened at any page and will still make sense to the reader who doesn't know what came before or comes after.»
Sandra Cisneros will forever be my queen. 🌺🍃
