#PRHpartner#WatermelaNerdsSeptember What books did you read this month?
The only book I read this month was The Care and Keeping of a Pet Black Hole. I absolutely loved it! Talk about a quick read (it's a middle grade novel) that can pack all the feels. Not to mention the MC, Stella Rodriguez, wants to work for NASA, and the story begins with her knocking on NASA's front door. I'm so glad to have this on the shelf for my littles!
PS: pumpkin spice recipe + book mail reveal in my stories day. Go quick before it's gone!

Loving the plot also the characters in it, specially arya the elf. #eragon series seriously need another sequel, i need more! Just can’t get enough of this book, and also i really do hope he writes another book, i never heard any new books from him so far. Have you read this?

🇪🇸Una de mis últimas lecturas fue "La Guía del Caballero para el Vicio y la Virtud". La verdad es que no tenía pensado leer este libro porque el hype había drenado todas mis ganas de hacerlo, pero cuando escuché al editor Leo Teti hablar sobre la novela, morí de ganas de saber más. Me encantó la pluma de la autora que capturó la esencia de una buena historia juvenil pero a la vez completamente ficción histórica. La voz del narrador fue lo más bello de todo, ya que logré conectarme con Monty e identificarme con él más de una vez. También me fue súper interesante tener un narrador de la comunidad LGBTQ+. Monty me encantó. Su voz en esta historia me dejó maravillada y creo que todos deberían leer esta novela. 💚💚💚
🇺🇸One ofmy latest reads was "The Gentleman's Guide To Vice and Virtue". I actually wasn't planning to read this novel because all the hype had scared me away, but when i heard how the editor Leo Teti spoke about it, i knew i couldn't miss it. So i read it. I loved the author's beauuuutiful quill that captured the essence of a good historical fantady novel from beginning to end and also mixed it with true YA. The narrator's voice was the loveliest thing of all as i was able to feel a conenction with Monty more than once. I could see many parts of my teen self in him. It was also extremely interesting and charming to have a narrtor from the LGBTQ+ community. I adored Monty. His voice in this story was so damn powerful and i think that's the reason why everyone should read it. 💚💚💚

#bookishtrioseptember - Bromance... has to be The High lords 😂😂 they act like brats but deep down they all love each other 😂😂
So finished reading this book few days ago, and i love it! Not just because it’s a stand alone (which didn’t make me have to wait for another book to be released hanging me with the feels) but i looveee all of it!
This is also my entry for @bookish_indonesia #readingchallenge_bookishseptember theme magic and mythological creature
Overall i love the uniqueness of the characters, i love the plot, this is probably the best plot twist ever! Twist after twist, makes you kind of curious also a bit detective feels to guess who and which, and super fun!
This is the first circus theme book i’ve ever read, tho with a hint of darkness in it i feels super fine (hate horror, but this one is different) also the whole city moving from another city to another city??? How cool is that?!! I love the illustrations in this book, surprisingly love the book, definitely don’t judge book by its cover (i mean i don’t hate the cover but it might come more prettier for such story in it)
I give 4.5🌟 for this not because some lack of it, but because it’s the first circus theme book i’ve read so i won’t give full stars for starter right? 🙈🙈🙈
#sepreadsplaining day 23 : festival
#fantasystorychronicles day 23 : a city you want to visit. Whole city of circus?? Yas please
#allthebookssept day 23 : chapter 18, this probably the start of the fun one, i love this chapter.
Let’s join this @sateliterature @syifareads
Yesterday was the 80th birthday of "The Hobbit" 😱 Can you believe it? So many generations of children have grown up having this beaitiful book read to them 😄
#Sepreadsplaining day 22: hobbit
Here's my new LOTR shirt that I ordered from @rarushopping 😁 How gorgeous is it?? 😊
And a happy birthday to Frodo and Bilbo! 😃 #HobbitWeek#HobbitDay
"Laurent wasn't loved. Laurent wasn't liked. Even among his own men, who would follow him off a cliff, there was the unequivocal consensus that Laurent was, as Orlant had once described him, a cast iron bitch, that it was a very bad idea to get on his bad side, and that as for his good side, he didn't have one." -C. S. Pacat, Prince' Gambit
Okay, sooo, I LOVED the Captive Prince trilogy.... like a lot. That being said, I don't exactly feel comfortable recommending it to everyone. It's got trigger warnings out the wazoo, including rape and abuse. It's definitely NOT a series I think everyone should read, BUT, for those who want to, it's incredible. The character development throughout the books, the emotional trauma overcome.. I love these characters SO DAMN MUCH. And the short stories written within the world are so precious as well.
#fanaticalbirdseptember least favorite character- the regent.
This is the postgraduate office for English Literature students, where I sometimes find myself working 😊 The dazzling bookshelf, along with my "smile" mug, definitely help me find a peaceful state for work and concentration 😄

I HAVE DONE A THING!!!!!!!
Now would probably be a good time for a get to know me kind of tag, huh? 😊 Tagged by @abookdeer for #MyBookStory :
I've been a reader for as long as I can remember. Make Way For Ducklings was one of my very first favorites. The first books I ever devoured on my own were The Boxcar Children (and now my son is named Benny), the first book I reread (so many times that my teacher just finally gave it to me) was The BFG, and my first audiobook was Holes. All of the above are still favorites.
I discovered the world of Narnia in high school, Hogwarts in college, and skipped an 8am class once because I stayed awake until three in the morning finishing Catching Fire.
And then came Kell Maresh in a very peculiar coat, Lila Bard who had a way of finding trouble, and Holland Vosijk, the troubled soul from a dying world. I had found myself again. I found a story that rescued me when I didn't know I was lost. ♦️
Anywaysss, before I get too mushy, here's the #WatermelaNerdsSeptember question of the day: What is one sound you can't stand? My child, throwing a tantrum. Hashtag mom life.
"Be as swift as the wind. As silent as the forest. As fierce as the fire. As unshakable as the mountain." -Renée Ahdieh, Flame in the Mist
QOTD: Ebooks or audiobooks? .
I love to borrow ebooks from the library, because I can download them straight to my kindle! It has seriously been life changing, and if you have a library card, I highly suggest you find out if your local library does the same. You can even gets books on your phone if you don't have an ereader! .
Flame in the Mist was a great quick read, even if it took me a while to get into it. I read The Wrath and the Dawn duology, loved it, and I was excited to read more from Renée Ahdieh. She definitely didn't disappoint. There were plot twists until the end that absolutely floored me, and I came to care about the characters more than I thought I would. Overall, would definitely recommend!
#fanaticalbirdsept thrilling read
So I just ordered Outlander season 1 from Netflix and I am soooooo excited. It should be here today 😱😱 I watched the first episode like 1 month ago and was very intrigued. I've heard so many people love it 😍 also I'm reading a book about bookshelves which is interesting...not very entertaining though
