Pastel books just look so happy, ya know. They're very pleasing to the eyes.
My big plans for the rest of the day is just to cuddle with my dog in bed. My back's been hurting and now I have some neck pains, bleh.

Who else likes to reread childhood classics? Excited to read Anne of Green Gables again as an adult. This was another book that turned me into a bookworm as a kid. I was so excited when I saw this colorful edition at @chaptersindigo.

You guyssss! Look at these little Tillandsias! D'awww! They're so sweet, right? And so small! They're air plants, if you've never heard of them. They have no roots and just need a slight misting now and again to stay happy and healthy. The teacup one is my favorite!
Mr. Boyfriend is getting rather good at surprising me with little gifts here and there. His co-worker makes these so he got me two. SO CUTE! He's figured out my love for "props" and is amazingly humoring my addiction quite well. *giggle* Good sport, he is.
Working hard on custom orders today so I'm a busy bee, but I LOVE it! And, I love you guys. Thank you all for your continued support and gracious words. I appreciate it more than you know!
I hope you all are having a wonderful Wednesday! Happy reading, book bunnies! Xx

Lately, I've been the worst at keeping up with anything.. so I haven't had time to do my #grimDragon book challenge for the past couple of das. 😓 Shame. 🙈 Also, tomorrow I'll be off to #Munich until next Tuesday, spending the weekend at #GermanComicCon and I'll prob won't get around to keeping up with the book challenge. However, if you're up for some #geeky Comic Con stuff and some awesome cosplay impressions (not only mine) mixed in with traval pics, then I'd love for you to stick around. 😊 •
Started reading Lady Killer by Joëlle Jones and Jamie S. Rich last night!
Josie Schuller is a picture-perfect homemaker, wife and mother-but she's also a ruthless, efficient killer! She's balanced cheerful domestic bliss with coldly performed assassinations, but when Josie finds herself in the crosshairs, her America Dream life is in danger!
For #RomBkLove today we're talking about work in romance. A lot of my fave romances have a work component. I love when normal heroes and heroines are actually depicted doing their jobs. One of my favorites examples is Ruby Lang's Hard Knocks. The heroine is a neurologist! The hero is a hockey player, which is cool. But NEUROLOGIST! I love her. ... That cookie should properly be a pop tart, but I made them at work this morning and so I didn't want to make more when I got home. So you get a cookie instead. But if you want a recipe (or three) for homemade artisanal pop tarts, click the link in my profile, which will take you to my review of this book. Blueberry lavender goat cheese. Nutella banana. Red pepper jelly & cream cheese... Okay maybe I will go make pop tarts.

I'm about 75 pages into THE SECRETS SHE KEEPS by Michael Robotham and I am totally immersed in this story 📖 I also have been BLOWN away by the enthusiasm you guys have shown for this one!!! Thanks to all your comments & interest in this title, I'm going to have a giveaway of this one coming next week for you guys -- so stay tuned 😉
So far, what's impressed me most about this book is what an immersive reading experience it is. 🔎 There are a LOT of psychological thrillers out there with unreliable/unstable narrators, but I'm absolutely loving how Robotham handles his unstable narrator, Agatha. Right from the outset, readers know there's something a *bit* off about Agatha - I mean, she's obsessed with a grocery store customer, for goodness sake 😂 but what I'm loving is how the author doesn't TELL you she's not quite right - he shows you. He puts you squarely in her head, and shows you how she thinks about/justifies her actions. It's so immersive, I actually found myself forgetting how messed up her actions are by normal standards, bc her voice as a character is so strong. 👍🏻
Do you guys enjoy books with unreliable narrators? 🤔 (Think: characters who the reader can't trust - like the main characters of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, GONE GIRL, I LET YOU GO, and more!) 🔎

FROM INFINITE US:
Isaac, sweet Isaac, took my lifted chin for the invitation it was, made a sound deep in his throat,
and just like that, with a single tilt of his head, stopped fighting and kissed me.
The world went away and I heard the song of hundreds of voices inside of me that sounded so
familiar, yet were unlike anything I’d ever heard before. Maybe it was that active imagination of
mine working in overdrive. I had wanted Isaac’s touch for months, had daydreamed about it for
hours and now that it was here, I realized that my imagination was dull and pathetic. Reality was
so much better.
He moved his mouth over mine, tentative at first, but fueled by my reaction and the awesome
magnitude of what this felt like, he moved more confidently, more surely. Isaac wanted me and
took what I offered freely—his lips soft, directing, his tongue teasing and satisfying all at once... *** He watched me then, eyes sharp and focused and I wondered if he’d ever tell me about all the
thoughts I could read on his face; all the secrets he protected so fiercely. “This thing between me and you, it could lead to a lot of trouble for both of us.” “Isaac, I’m not worried. Trouble comes even if we plan for it. It comes when we don’t.” He shook his head, smile sweet, those amber-glinted eyes sparkling like he thought I was naive
or simple or a dreamer who wouldn’t be told to give up. Isaac gave me one last kiss, the first of
what I prayed would be a thousand more, a million more, and then he pressed his lips to my
Exciting bookmail, exciting news, and a giveaway! .
@orendabooks was kind enough to send over Seal Skin by Su Bristow to me. Seal Skin is based on the legend of the selkies in Scotland, seals who can transform into people. It's a magical story, evoking the harsh beauty of the landscape and I can't wait to read it, mainly because IM MOVING TO SCOTLAND! .
This coming September, my boyfriend and I will be moving to Glasgow for 5 years while he attends the University of Glasgow for veterinary medicine 💃🏻. This is an absolute dream come true for me, as Scotland has been my number one travel destination for as long as I can remember, and the majority of my ancestry is Scottish. I can't believe this is happening and couldn't think of a better book to announce it with. Basically, I'll be following @weereader around like a lost puppy until I get my bearings 🙊.
Orenda has also very generously offered up 1 copy of Seal Skin to an international winner 🙌🏻. All you have to do is:
1. Like this post
2. Follow both myself (@sweptawaybybooks) and @orendabooks and
3. Tag some friends and tell me where in the world you would love to live if you could go anywhere! .
Giveaway is open internationally, till 6/2. No giveaway accounts eligible, and this giveaway is in no way affiliated with or sponsored by instagram.
Good luck! .
Hi!! from the depths of hell and spilled coffee, studies, baggy eyes and a dead soul, how enlightening (!!!).
Yer dear Lavi fought with the piles of homework to come back here in bookstagram to finally cry about the fact that I've finished tWO very emotional books (someone hold me pls); The hate you give and A court of Wings and ruin🌚 and honestly, I cannot say anything more about Acowar (🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞) without screaming my soul off bUT you guys can surely imagine me crying inspired by Niagra Falls with occasional Pterodactyl screaching, while my brother seCRETLY takes a photo of me in this situation even though I warned him to not enter the room and now this photo is framed in Satan's room bc he sees himself in it🌚.
Anyways, I really need to talk about THUG with you guys because I've never read a book which dealt with racism, the mentality of opression and how it's so easy, so easy for people to make the victim the damn criminal just because of something they were ""suspected"" of being and bc of their skin colour. How labels have more priority than being a human and having rights.
There is no other way of saying this but this is the book I'd like to give to everyone, be it any race. I'd actually throw it on the face of racists so that they get out of their absurd delusion and read something right.
Also, please do recommend me books which are similar to THUG, thank you kids & have a nice day😏💕.

Même si elle picole toute la journée, même si elle oublie de vous acheter à manger, même s’il faut la tirer du lit le jour du versement des allocations chômage, il faut faire avec… Et Jono, du haut de ses quatorze ans, a toujours fait avec la sienne. Mais le soir où sa mère frappe sa petite soeur en pleine figure d’un coup tellement puissant que Julie valdingue à travers la pièce, Jono décide que c’en est trop.
Que peut-il faire ? Appeler la police ? Une assistante sociale débarquerait dans les trois heures et n’hésiterait pas à les séparer. Emmener Julie loin d’ici ? Mais pour aller où ? Jono n’en a pas la moindre idée, mais il sait qu’il est le seul à pouvoir protéger sa petite soeur." • 📖

*PLEASE READ THE WHOLE CAPTION.* Raise your wands! /* ( I am inviting everybody whose reading this ❤ ) .
This is actually not a wand. But I wish to have one ;-; so I can Aveda Kedavra- all the evil things which ruins our beautiful world. I don't mean harm, but a lesson!

So let's join our hands, regardless of your race, gender, religion, let's join hands for the betterment of this world. Because earth is what we have. Earth is what gives us lives. It's ALL we have. Idc whatever the science says, but we know that EARTH this WORLD is OUR home. And what do we do, we nurture, nourish, care and above all LOVE our home. So I'm tagging ALL OF YOU WHO READS, we, through social media should make a difference from as far as north of the world and south, and east and our west.
Tag your photos under #unitedwithliterature and share and spread word for love. Post a similar picture or anything in your mind which depicts peace and love. For humanity. For harmony. Let's do it together. 🙏 Let's pray together, we gotta work it to attain it! Tag your friends to spread the word. ❤ I am doing this just JUST for peace. JUST to spread love and to let THEM know that we are together in this. Their HATE cannot destroy our love. Surely, LOVE TRIUMPH ALL. Thank you for reading so far 💜 Kindly, understand the motive behind. .

How's everyone's day so far? Hope it's been a great one! It's about 12:45PM here in sunny SoCal and I'm currently debating what to have for lunch!? Anybody else having such a dilemma? The options are endless!
Anyways, I'm currently reading HP6 and I'm loving it so far! I can't wait to see the sixth film. I haven't been doing much reading because I've been busy with life but I'm slowly getting back into the groove!
What are your currently reading? I've been kind of wanting to read a good thriller! Any recommendations?
Oooo it's freezing cold and so foggy this morning! Makes me wanna move to the Winter Court permanently ❄❄❄😍😍
In fact #maasmaydestruction has the prompt Winter Court - so here are some blue books ❄
#wishfulwonder - bright colours! I always have bright colours 💜💛💚💙
#maasmay17 - fav Inner Circle member.. are you serious!? That's like asking what toe I'd chop off (it would be the little one 😂😂)
I love them all.. Mor because of her strength... Amren for her ability to scare and kick ass... Az for his stealth and loyalty... Feyre for her everything... I love her.. Rhys because he is goals and end game... and Cass... because when Feyre was upset he wouldn't let it rest. He would have destroyed Rhys to make her happy. Whereas Lucien let her rot! So maybe Cass 😂😂💙
I've been following @paperlyandco for ages now, so when I saw they were holding a rep search I just had to try out!

📖Крис Чибнелл, Эрин Келли «Убийство на пляже». Роман написан по мотивам первого сезона популярного британского сериала Бродчерч.
📖В небольшом городке произошло убийство одиннадцатилетнего Денни.
Кто мог убить ребенка? За что?
Убийство мог совершить любой житель города. Под подозрение попадают многие и у каждого из них есть свой скелет шкафу.
📖Ни за что не догадаетесь кто убийца!..
📖Книга немного лучше,чем сериал, передает чувства героев, глубже их описывает, особенно чувства и мысли матери потерявшей своего ребенка.
🎥В сериале одну из главных ролей (роль детектива) играет Десятый Доктор, ой т.е. Дэвид Теннант, так же в сериале играет Артур Дарвилл (Рори из Доктора Кто), а Крис Чибнелл так же является сценаристом Доктора, так что всем любителям Доктора думаю сериал и книга будут интересны, пусть даже в "Убийстве на пляже" нет ничего фантастического.
Clube da luta narra a história de um jovem funcionário que descobre que sua frustração e ira não podem ser acalmadas com o consumo desenfreado que a mídia oferece. Ele encontra alívio e redenção após horas de luta em pequenos clubes escondidos nos porões de bares da cidade. O clube da luta é idealizado por Tyler Durden, que acredita ter encontrado uma maneira de viver fora dos limites da sociedade e das regras sem sentido. Mas o que está por vir de sua mente pode piorar muito daqui para frente.
