Spoilers ahead for the October dragon-themed Unicorn Crate! Swipe to see what's inside!
πŸ“–
To be honest, I'm not the biggest dragon fan. I've just never found them that interesting. However, I do have one dragon series I like (The Memoirs of Lady Trent) and I'm quite excited about the book that came in this box.
πŸ“–
How do you all feel about dragons? Obsessed, ambivalent, deep hatred? I fall almost squarely in the ambivalent category.

In my opinion, this is one of the (very) few cases where I like the movie better than the book. Don't get me wrong, I love the book. I just *really* love the movie. It captures the magic of the story in a way that fell flat for me on the page.

Now I'm curious: what movies/shows do you like better than the book? My go-to answer is always Stardust because it's my favorite movie of all time but the book isπŸ—‘.

This is an old photo from before I even started this account. I'm very ashamed to say that I still haven't read Our Dark Duet, and I think at this point I'll have to reread This Savage Song. Oh, darn. I'll have to read this amazing book again. What a tragedy... πŸ˜‰

P.S. One of these tattoos is fake and one is real. Though you probably worked that out on your own.

I got a new phone and my emojis look different, so I'm changing my paragraph separater, and my photos may look a little different, so bear with me.

Spooky October reads. Most of these are on my TBR this month since it's the only month I like to read scary books. Any other month of the year, no thanks.

Rereading this spooky book for my October book club meeting. I don't normally read horror, but this book is one of my favorites!
✨
This is another case where the movie is *nothing* like the book. They share the same name, that's all. I did like the movie, but the book is so much better! It's not your typical zombie story, but that's what I like about it. It's so realistic about what would actually happen in the event of a zombie apocalypse. It's eerily accurate about how people, organizations, and governments would act. I highly recommend it.

It's been so long since I posted! I spent last weekend at a writing conference and then the week at Disneyland with my husband's family. I had so much fun...and then I slept for 20 hours.
✨
In all the hubbub, I forgot to brag about my story that was published this year. I was able to get a copy at the writing conference, and it looks so good! You guys, that's my name...in a book...with words I wrote!
It's crazy and surreal and it makes me super happy.

I finally bought some new bookmarks! This one is super accurate for most of us, I think.
✨
I finished A Closed and Common Orbit by Becky Chambers last night. It's the sequel to The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, which I loved. And I think I love ACaCO even more. It's a similar tone to the first book. It's a bit meandering, more focused on alien cultures and philosophical questions than plot. But the characters are incredible, and the backstory of one of the main characters is so deep and rich, it's amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed it, even though it doesn't follow the same characters as the first one, which usually bothers me, but not here. The characters are so memorable. They're going to stay with me for a long time!
✨
Have you read this series? Does anyone know if there will be more books in this world?

My September book-buying ban is officially over, and I celebrated by getting this gorgeous *signed* copy of The Language of Thorns. It's so beautiful! The jacket, the cover, the illustrations are all amazing. I'm so excited to read it!
✨
I've read Six of Crows and Crooked Kindom, but I haven't read the Grisha trilogy yet. Should I read that before I pick up this one?

The newest book by my friend Johnny Worthen. The cover is beautiful and the description is interesting, but I hesitate to pick it up because it's on the literary side of the writing spectrum, which I normally avoid. However, I'm more than willing to give it a chance after enjoying Eleanor as much as I did.
✨
If you like literary fiction with fantasy elements, then this is right up your alley. Here is a snippet of the description:
✨
Michael is called of God; just not that God.

Literary and dark, What Immortal Hand is a road trip across American wastelands and into the depths of spiritual darkness, where the Dark Mother, Kali, has set up house in the New World, and her children, the Thuggee cult of ancient India, are alive and thriving.

I started this book the other night and I really like it already! I've heard mixed reviews, but I'm suspending judgment until I'm further in. I'm assuming most of you have read this, so let me know what you thought.
✨
Also showing off my book sleeve. I love that thing! It fits almost all sizes of books and keeps them safe inside my bag. Plus it's pretty! What's not to like?

Am I the only one who waits *forever* for books to come out in paperback? I'm not the biggest fan of hardcovers, so sometimes I have to wait a year or two for the paperback. If I really want to read it, I might check it out from the library, but some I just wait for. The Diabolic was one of those.
✨
Obviously that means I'm about a year behind the hype, but I only remember hearing good things about this book.

I finished Daughter of Smoke and Bone the other day and whoa! It was amazing! Ironically, I finished it the night after I got a tooth extracted. Brimstone would *not* have wanted that gross-ass tooth, I'll tell you that. That's why I've been MIA. Tooth extractions hurt!
✨
The good news is that my poor husband took pity on me and let me suspend my book-buying ban to buy the rest of this series. I can't wait to finish it!

This may be one of my last rose pictures of the year. It's going to be cold and rainy this weekend and I'm so excited! I do love these roses, but I love fall even more!
✨
I started this book recently, but had to put it down because something came up and I had to read another book in a hurry. It's kind of a bummer because I quite liked the beginning. It was a little confusing, but I liked what I read. I will definitely pick it back up once life gets a little less crazy.
✨
What really good books have you had to put down for one reason or another?

I am so excited to read this book! There's a page that just says: Prologue: Mars, 1812. 😍 Space travel in the Regency era!? Yes, please!
✨
I actually only bought it because I won a giveaway of the second book. Unfortunately, it never came. 😞 Some mix-up with the publisher, and the person who hosted the giveaway kind of blew me off. It's a bummer, but if this book is as good as I'm anticipating, I'll gladly buy the second one.

I have a soft spot for red books, and I generally prefer dark red to bright. What's your favorite color for book cover/spines?
✨
Also, is anyone else dying of excitement for The Book of Dust!? I ordered a special box from Unicorn Crate that will be all HDM stuff along with the new book. I cannot wait!
✨
His Dark Materials will always hold a special place in my heart. My daughter's name is Lyra, mostly because of these books. (I also love astronomy, music, and mythology, so there's that.) But it's mostly all about Lyra Silvertongue.
✨
Have you or would you name your kid after a favorite book character? (P.S. My son's name is Frederick after Frederick Wentworth and Fred Weasley.)

I finished Frostblood yesterday and asked my husband to pick out my next book. He grabbed this one, which I thought was fitting after my last post gushing over Laini Taylor.
✨
I'm very excited to read this trilogy. I only got 20 pages in last night, but I already love it. Karou with her blue hair and her notebooks making her naked ex-boyfriend itch in front of her whole class was one of the best things I've ever read!

The cover of Strange the Dreamer always gets so much love, but what about this title page! I'm not normally one for what might be considered creepy art, but this is really beautiful, and so meaningful if you've read the story.
✨
This was one of those books that tore my heart out and made me like the experience. It's not a book you forget in a hurry. The language was so lyrical and the world had so much depth you felt like you were dropped into it whenever you opened the pages.
✨
I just can't say enough wonderful things about this book. One of my only 5/5⭐ this year.

I mostly read sci-fi and fantasy, but I have a soft spot for Regency romances. It stems from my love of Jane Austen, but there are so many contemporary authors who write amazing Regency stories. My job the past few years has included Regency romance anthologies, so I have read my fair share of Regency!
✨
This book, in particular, is both research and fun. The best combination. It discusses the life of, primarily, landed gentry in England during the Regency era (technically 1811-1820, but many stories take place from about 1800-1820). It talks about everything from etiquette, courting, leisure activities, money, to how to post a letter. It's very informative and interesting!
