In case you were wondering, Calypso is still one of the most adorable creatures in the universe. And the best reading buddy. (Or the worst because she's always trying to lay on my books πŸ˜‰) #bookstagram #catsofinstagram #cats #reading #kittysnuggles #kitty #cuties
You know that moment when you finish an amazing series and are just like "No. That's not the end. I need a couple hundred more books in this world." Well, that's how I'm feeling right now. I'm so sad The Broken Earth series is over!

It's the perfect weather to snuggle up with a cup of warm tea and a good book! I love stormy, chilly days. Especially when I don't have to be outside in the elements!

A while ago, I was told by one of my beta readers that a character in this book reminded her of one of the characters in Royal Thief (Desini). I'm pretty fond of Desini, so I'm excited to finally read this book and see what they meant!
Has anyone else read this? What did you think?

I'm still holding out hope for my Hogwarts letter. I refuse to believe I'm just a regular old muggle.

But also, look at this Hogwarts ring from @epikcreations I love it sooo much!!!! #epikcreations #bookstagram #harrypotter #jkrowling #hogwarts #etsy #reading
This has been an insanely long week. But today has been a beautiful fall day so far. So that helps make things much better. πŸ‚

Normally, I'm not as into spooky things. Mostly because I have an imagination that's wayyyy too overactive. But, there are a few Halloweenie things I love. Like Nightmare Before Christmas! (Does that count as a Christmas, or Halloween movie? Either way, I'm a huge fan. πŸ˜‚)
And look at this Nightmare before Christmas rice bag from @bookishstardesigns ! Isn't it just perfect?! Also, I was tagged by @fionareidywritey for the #bookishlywriteysept17 prompt, Manga or Graphic Novels. I'm definitely more of a graphic novel gal. And I can't wait to read this one my one of my favorite authors, Laini Taylor!
(Sorry for that long-winded post...I wasn't expecting to get as excited as I did 😜) #bookstagram #bookishstardesigns #etsy #thedrowned #graphicnovel #lainitaylor #halloween #nightmarebeforechristmas #ricebags #13daysofspooky

It's finally cool enough to have a hot cup of tea in the afternoon and wear my comfy, fuzzy socks! It makes me insanely happy!!!
The socks are a little gross looking, so they didn't make it into the picture. But they still deserve an honorable mention! πŸ˜‰

I hate finishing a good series. It makes me so sad. But at the same time, when I'm so invested in the story, how can I not want to find out the ending? 
Anyway, I think it's finally time to start The Stone Sky. I can't put it off any longer!

I'd say I'm sorry for posting yet another Tolkien picture...but I'm really not all that sorry. Plus, LOOK AT MY NEW PRINT FROM @teawithtolkien By now I'm sure most of you know my love of tea. So a print with some of Tolkien's work AND a cup of tea? Just too perfect!

"No mourners, no funerals." I'm pretty cautious about books, especially ones that have such big hype. So it took me a little while to give Six of Crows a read. But I have to say, these books definitely live up to the hype!!!!! They're so great!
You know what's also great? My beautiful new bookmark from @nicholartdesigns 
Look how pretty it is!!!!!! #bookstagram #bookmarks #nicholartdesigns #sixofcrows #leighbardugo #crookedkingdom #reading
