❤️Coup de cœur ❤️Comme vous l'avez vu dans mes stories, j'ai eu un gros coup de cœur pour le premier tome de la trilogie Shades of Magic de VE Schwab! L(es)univers créé(s) par l'auteur sont géniaux, les personnages charismatiques et attachants et l'écriture (traduite) est dynamique, accrocheuse et on ne peut pas lâcher le bouquin avant de savoir la fin!
Vivement le tome 2 ( je me suis rencardée auprès de Lumen, pas de date annoncée pour le moment... 😞). Et vous, l'avez-vous lu? Vous fait-il envie ?
Bisous 😘 les 🦉 !
Burn Daze Evolve: Lessons from the Apocalypse - a parallel project I am working on.
After the apocalypse, you'll be thinking 3 things: who's going to try to kill me today, what's for lunch and where's a safe place to make a deposit. FYI: a five gallon bucket with a hole cut in the lid can work as a portable toilet.
Can You Name This Book? Book Quotes:(Character's names changed)
“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”
“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Betty remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Llama: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Betty.
"You must be," said the Llama, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”
“Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” .
“Begin at the beginning," the King said, very gravely, "and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”
“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to."
"I don't much care where –"
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go.” .
"Betty was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank and having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, "and what is the use of a book," thought Betty, "without pictures or conversations?" . . . .

qotd : what’s a genre you don’t read much of?
aotd : i hardly read fiction or classics so i’m trying to change that bc i’ve found that i really enjoy them ✌🏻. if you’ve seen, i hardly read contemporary. for me i really don’t get along well with it and most of the time it either bores or annoys me 🤷🏻♀️
i had my first driving lesson today 👀 It went good and i got to indicate PLUS clean the windows which was so much fun 😂 Only thing is tho, whenever i start something i enjoy i need to keep doing it, so now all i want to do is drive 🤷🏻♀️
managed to scram in some biology revision tonight and i’m currently trying to get all my key points down for chapter one of my module to refresh my short term memory. BUT, i’m also watching How to get away with murder so all is well 😏
🖤What book or series do you post the most?
Hopefully you guys don't get tired of seeing and hearing about my love for the Grishaverse!! 🙈🙈 #sorrynotsorry 😘😂! •
Can we talk about how amazing these candles from @belleandcocandlemakers are!? They are so gorgeous and smell soooo good!! I literally could eat Ninas candle it smells so yummy and Inej's candle scent is one of my faves! They were a gift from one of my bookstabesties @cakefacereader!! 😘 She's the best and the fact that Nina and Inej are besties too it was the perfect gift!! 😍
Holey moley bajeezers damn it this book was good.•
First off, shoutout to the 100% best character in this book, Todd's talking dog Manchee.
I read this book in pretty much one sitting, totally glued to pages with my heart thumping like it was me being chased by an insane religious fanatic.•
This was such an action packed read, insanely well written, and the 1st person POV was so skillfully done. Every single time I thought they were safe, Patrick was like "HAHA YOU THOUGHT." (Which did get very tiring after a while tbh. I felt like I was the one being endlessly pursued by unkillable evil guys).•
Such fantastic themes were dealt with in this story, racial hatred, sexism, group mentalities, religious extremism, power... It was so interesting and engaging how the Noise was portrayed, the typography and fonts were just so COOL.•
And the spelling and the swearing? Phenomenal and hilarious.
I need the second one asap!•
4.3/5⭐️ for The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness (@patricknessbooks )
Do you guys like this trilogy?
And also, I didn't put the blurb for this review, do you guys prefer it when I do?
Spending the day reading through the first half of SABLE (title subject to change). Speaking of titles, I was just informed that I can now start creating a list of other potential titles for when it's time to submit to editors! I am so grateful to have Louise and her team working with me on SABLE to make it the best book it can be, and I couldn't be more excited to see where it takes us! #yafantasy#authorlife#bibliophile#authorsofig
It's full-on cold season all of a sudden! What happened to fall being a time of cute sweaters, red wine and arty films? *SNIFFS* Now it's all about the spiral of preschool viruses swirling their way through my child, home and shitty immune system. Featuring a 2017 special of relentless horrific news cycle as backdrop. Tuesday cranks!!!! What's keeping me going is the promise that the seasons will pass and new books will come out and one day it will be spring again and WINTER GLASS will be here!!! And in the meantime there are tea and animal crackers. What are some anticipated 2018 releases keeping you all hopeful these days? ☕️❄️📚🍁🤒 #spindlefire#winterglass#winterglassiscoming#YAlit#YAfantasy#fairytaleretelling#faeries#tealover#epicreads
Good evening, Book Faeries!😍
Guess whaaaaat? Yes, I managed to take a photo today so I can talk about the book fair 😆. Okayyyy so Saturday started with me searching for @drawingandreading and when we found each other we took a photo together at this one booth which you could turn into a bookmark 😍🙊. And OMG I made a Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne drawing for Aleksandra because it's our favorite anime/ manga and this was the first thing we ever fangirled about together😆. THEN SHE GAVE ME THIS AWESOME WILL & TESSA DRAWING OMG I NEED A FRAME FOR THIS!😍😭.
Afterwards I went to the signing of the German author Mona Kasten and straight after this to the Cassandra Clare signing. That was awful because there were SO MANY people and we all felt squished and our group got separated 😕. The 4 hours of waiting were worth it though😂. I think it's funny that Cassie wrote my name like "Mari___" lol🤣. •
Sunday was more relaxed. When Jess & I for example didn't wait for the others to show up, which has felt like an eternity btw, we walked around in the hall(s) 😊. So nothing special 😂.
It was seriously sooooo awesome meeting you all! 🙌🏻 @drawingandreading you're such a talented artist and such a nice person (and your boyfriend too with his dream job of handing out Nevernight samples to strangers😂😂😂😂). Taking all opportunities being in front of a photo booth and getting a photo for free haha 😄. // @starlitlibrary your Mia cosplay was pure awesomeness and I really enjoyed meeting you because you're my soulmate's sister's soulmate🙊. And finally someone who's as small as me wohoo😂😆🙌🏻. // @the_beauty_of_the_books we didn't talk that much but you seemed really nice!😊 // @captain.valour I can't decide if I liked your Shadowhunter or Slytherin cosplay better because both looked great!😄 And omg next year Cassie has to come again so you can get your signature!😤 or we should all team up and anybody who gets to her gets the book signed as "For Alex"🙊. // I got so emotional though when we all separated 😭. CAN IT BE OCTOBER 2018 PLEASE??!!😩😭😍

Last week I finished Walk On Earth A Stanger by Rae Carson! I give it 3.5/5 stars. While I was not blown away by it, I truly enjoyed reading this book and will definitely be picking up the next book in the trilogy. In this book we follow Leah Westfall, a 16 year old girl who has to escape her hometown in Georgia after the murder of her parents. The story takes place right at the start of the California gold rush so Leah decides to try and make it out west dressed as a boy. Oh, and did I mention, she has the ability to sense gold in the earth? 😱 I loved the adventure aspect of this and I appreciated how much research Rae Carson did to make it historically accurate too. Definitely would recommend!
On another note, LOOK HOW PRETTY MY KNIGHT BUS CANDLE IS! Did you know I’m a rep for @tookishcandleco? You can use NAHAL10 for 10% off 😄 This one smells like chocolate and peppermint and it’s so scrumptious it makes me want to eat it. Is that weird? 🤷🏽♀️

💫Bilinmeyen Bir Kadının Mektubu Kitap Yorumu~♡💫
Ben bugün daha iyiyim. Çünkü tüm özetlerimi ve ödevlerimi yaptım. Testler de bitti. Kitap okumaya bir sürü vakit var. Eveğt. Bu çok güzel bir şey eheheh. Her neyse. Dün söylediğim gibi kitap yorumunu girerim demiştim. Ben de boş vaktim varken giriyim dedim.| Adını hiç bilmediğimiz bir kadın,adının sadece baş harfini bildiğimiz bir adama mektup yazar. Ama mektup neredeyse kadının hayatını anlatır. Kısa bir şey değil yani. -Adamın baş harfi R. bu arada- Bu kadın o adam onun yaşadığı apartmana taşındığında görüyor ve seviyor. (Ve bu kadının yaşı daha 13.)Ama adam bunu hiç bilmiyor. Yaşı birazcık ilerleyince annesi evleniyor ve başka bir şehre taşınıyor. Aslında kadın hiç istemiyor ama sonunda bir şey buluyor ve yine eski şehre dönüyor. Adamı kendisi işten çıktıktan sonra evinin kapısında sürekli bekliyor. Adam onu çoğu zaman fark etmiyor ama bir gün fark ediyor. Ama onun o apartmanda oturan kız olduğunu bilmiyor. Evet bu çok sinir bozucu. Bunlar birkaç gün takılıyorlar. Ve kadın hamile kalıyor. Ve adamın yine haberi yok. Dım dım dım. Kaın adamın çocuğu aldırmasını istemiyor çünkü kadın adamı o kadar çok seviyor ki adamın küçüklüğünden bir tane daha olacak diye hiçbir şey belli etmiyor. Kadında bu mektubu çocuğu öldüğünde yazmaya başlıyor. Sürekli "sevgilim bizim çocuğumuz öldü ve sen onu hiç görmedin"diyor. Üzücü aslında.
Sonra kadının çocuğu falan oluyor. Ondan sonra kadını bir sürü erkek istiyor ama hiçbirini kadın kabul etmiyor sadece birkaç defa görüşüyor. Ama bir gün yine bu adamla karşılaşıyor ve şaşırmayacağınız bir şey adam yine tanımıyor. Adam artık kaç tane kadınla tanıştıysa :') İşte kadın son bir defa adamla görüşüyor ve bu görüşmelerinde hiç adını veya bir şeyini söylemiyor. Adam kısaca onu hiç tanımadan kaç defa buluştu.
Çoğunlukla adamın hiçbir şeyden farkunda olmadığı kadının çok sevipte hiç fark edilmemesiyle alakalı bir kitap. Daha nasıl açıklayacağımı bilmiyorum. Bu yüzden kısa kesmeye çalıştım umarım güzel anlatmışımdır. Her neyse.

#igwritersoct day 14: dead manuscripts. This is my first "book," back from when I was a baby novelist (8th grade, I think?). You might guess from the opening in 17th C Salem, that this is historical. But no, it's really sci-fi--a few pages later a man shows up to save her from the witch mob and reveals she's really a princess from another planet.
There's a reason this one's dead. 😂
