Have you seen fireflies? They're magical! I've only seen them once, the summer between my junior and senior year. 💫 💫 💫 When Larissa Renaud starts receiving eerie phone calls on a disconnected old phone in her family's antique shop, she knows she's in for a strange summer. A series of clues leads her to the muddy river banks, where clouds of fireflies dance among the cypress knees and cattails each evening at twilight. The fireflies are beautiful and mysterious, and they take her on a magical journey through time, where Larissa learns secrets about her family's tragic past--deadly, curse-ridden secrets that could harm the future of her family as she knows it. It soon becomes clear that it is up to Larissa to prevent history from repeating itself and a fatal tragedy from striking the people she loves. 💫 💫 💫 #fireflies #reader #reading #readersofinstagram #MG #bookstagram #bookworm #bibliophile #booklover #bookish #middlegrade #reading #middlegradereads #ilovereading

How does your pet act when you’re taking a picture? . . I swear I was trying to get a picture for tonight and hopefully tomorrow, but she did not want to listen. It took me three tries then she started eating my book, so I just gave up. . . P.S. tomorrow is going be the last day your going to see Bella. I’m moving back to the city, and she’s going to stay here with my mother. Staying with my mom which she lives in the country, and theirs no room for me to grow here. Plus, my little sister is staying here and we just don’t get along, and living here is making my anxiety worse. It’s a hard decision I had to make, but I need to think what’s best for myself. #mycreativereadingblog . . . #bookcommunity #bookphotography #book #bookstagram #bookclub #bookaddict #bookworm #bookish #bookobsessed #bookaholic #akita #akitasofinstagram #akitapuppy #read #reading #reader #readingtime #readersofinstagram #amreading #puppyreading #igreads #booklover #booknerd #bookhoarder #bella #puppy #puppylove #heartbroken at Pennsylvania

THE HAUNTING OF HENDERSON CLOSE, by Catherine Cavendish, is a supernatural novel with a strong dose of historical fiction. I felt that the atmosphere was the strongest element here—it was so well defined that I could almost “smell” the noxious odors emanating from the streets of Henderson Close in the late 1800’s! While the past visions were my favorite part of the story as it alternated from the episodes then, that were influencing the present day, I have to say that I never really “connected” with any of the characters. The ideas were there, I just feel that there were a few too many coincidences that didn’t add up, including how the present-day people were supposed to be linked to those in the past. With all of the things the story had going for it, the ending just didn’t feel as if it resolved even half of the questions I had. Perhaps if it had been shorter, with less open-ended mysteries branching off of the main idea, this would have worked better for me. As it stands, I did enjoy the historical aspects, as well as learning about the details from when the Close was an area that people actually LIVED in.

🌈 Review 🌈 • "This is about hating yourself enough to go to extremes. It’s about surviving, when all you want to do is wake up dead." • This is my first book by Chad Lutzke, and it definitely won't be my last. Based on this alone, I signed up for his Patreon and purchased 2 other books - it's that good. • I love things that make me sad - like, the more devastating a book is, the more I'll love it, because it'll destroy me and for some weird reason, I like being wrecked by my literature. • I have "a lot of feelings", and reading about other people dealing with having a lot of feelings too makes me feel less alone, I guess? Loneliness is a funny thing. • Our protagonist in this story, Emmett, knows a thing or two about loneliness. After losing his wife, he struggles to find a reason to go on, and falls into a routine he relies on to get through his daily mourning. The sadness and grief that tinge every single aspect of Emmett's life are palpable things, almost characters in the story by themselves. You feel them in everything, from the way he wakes up in the morning to the way he shies away from anything resembling moving on from his beloved - it's so heartbreaking, and so real. • What stuns me the most about this is how well Lutzke's been able to tell such a full story in such a small package. With novellas, it can be hard to propel a character's development forward, and to even flesh them out enough to envision a future for them beyond the ending at all. For Lutzke to be able to do that - and more, honestly, in my opinion - in just 130 pages is amazing, and really puts this on another level for me. • Highly recommended, and I can't wait to read more by him! • • • #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #constantreader #horrorbooks #bookworm #bookclub #amreading #bookreview #booklover #booknerd #chadlutzke #bookclubofinstagram #holoreaderreviews #rainbowbooks #rainbowbookshelf #rainbowshelfie #readersofinstagram

I read Train wreck in 2017 n to be honest i have a vague memory on it so i think a reread is in order...anyway the first book is on Josh n Eve story...so the second book is on their best friend Dallas n Kitty...Dallas is always facing with a disaster when it comes to women...he is like a magnet who only attracts weird women who for sure looking for a relationship which he isn’t...then there’s Kitty who Dallas slept with once few years ago...they make a pact to help each other out so they face with any weirdos...they will report or ask anything to each other basically exchanging notes about the people they’re seeing...sooner rather than later they fall for each other...I like Dallas for his spontaneity and of course his tattoos... #carcrash #collision #tinagephart #newadult #bookreview #bookcover #bookgeek #trainwreck #bookstagram #bookaddict #bookworm #booklover #booklove #booklife #bookgeek #readersofinstagram #avidreader #bookphoto #bookphotography #bookobsessed #bookish #bookhoarder #booknerd #booknerdigans #bookgram

Terminei de ler Torvelinho Dia e Noite, de José J. Veiga. É um livrinho singelo, e que me trouxe opiniões paradoxas. A escrita do autor é cativante, isso não dá para negar. Há passagens interessantes no livro, e isso os post its comprovam. Porém há dois pequenos poréns: o primeiro deles, é que a história perde o rumo às vezes, e só não fica realmente enfadonho graças à escrita de Veiga, que mantém o estilo juvenil que acaba facilitando. O outro porém é que o livro trouxe mais perguntas que respostas. Quem eram os estranhos da praça, chamados de turistas pelo prefeito? E quem eram os fantasmas vistos por Dr. Gumercindo, por Nilo e por outros? E quem realmente é o Senhor Abreuciano e Dona Cynara? É certo que algumad dessas dúvidas, e outras mais, ajudam a dar aquela aura de livro sem final, porém outras poderiam e deveriam ter sido explicadas. Realmente estou remoendo todas as questões, tentando dar alguma resposta plausível para elas. Acredito que seja um livro para ser lido. Não é ruim e tem um ritmo gostoso. . #bookaddict #bookstagram #bookstagramfeature #bookalicious #bookaholic #bookworm #bookworld #books #livros #leiamais #lectures #leituras2019 #2019readings #skoob #buch #readersofinstagram #booktography #bookstagrammer #readmorebooks #bookphotography #bookphoto #bibliophile #bookphotographie #livre at Curitiba, Brazil

Not only we humans but each and every living organisms who are alive and explores in search of things by which they can live their life with the sun rise.. And sun gives to all of us a second chance to do something we will later be proud of.. In our success there is the biggest contribution of sun coz every day it goes down and next day it comes with more light, brightness and more shine and gives us a fresh morning of a new day and that is second chance and new day of all of us.. #morningthoughts☕💭 #positivevibesonly💫 ✨💯 #newmorningbelike #sunriselover🌄 . #NIRAALIDARJI . . #thegoodquote #thoughtcatalog #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #thoughtoftheday #wordsofwisdom #mythoughtprocess #myownwords #instathought #thoughtsinwords #inspirationalwords #motivationalwords #mywritings #writersblock #writers #wordoftheday #writersnetwork #readwriteunite #readersofinstagram #writeraofindia #writerscorner #heartfeels #mindthinks #wordswithqueens

I have tried so many kinds of no show socks. I’d given up on them. They always slip down and I have to take off my shoes to fix them. My friend told me I need to try the Converse brand. She gave me a pair to try and Y’ALL. LIFE CHANGING. I went out for pho and walked around Target for quite some time and NO SLIPPING, Y’ALL. They stayed on! I’m still amazed. I need more!!!

// 2019 READ #7 // 👩🏼‍🏫👩🏼‍🏫 ’The Foxhole Court ’ by Nora Sakavic ⭐️⭐️⭐️ I am unsure why I decided to read this book, but it was for free on the Kindle store, so I thought I’d give it a go. This series had some Tumblr notoriety a few years ago but I didn’t realise what it was about. Half of the plot is about a bunch of boys playing ‘Exy’ (a weird franken-hockey game), and the other half is the weird gangland underside of this sport. The first book in the trilogy was mostly the former, so it was probably my fave out of the series. It had a Wattpad-esque plot but was written well. Because the story was about a group of boys it genuinely did feel like an AU One Direction Wattpad Fanfic 😂. . . Anyways, swipe 👉🏼 for a photo of me looking ridiculous on a hockey field back in the day. . . . #bookstagram #kindlestagram #bookshelf #books #bookstagrammer #bookshelf #bookworm #bibliophile #readersofinstagram #reader #allforthegameseries #thefoxholecourt

Riveting. I was glued to this book as soon as I started it. The Demon Under the Microscope explores the frustrating search for the first antibiotic. Coinsidently I have been fighting an infection and YALL. I should be dead or dying. Like, baruch hashem for modern medicine. It's horrifying that it took until the 1930s for us to get here, but the process getting there was amazing. If you have any interest in microbiology, pharmaceuticals, history, or medicine I highly recommend this book. 🔬💊🔬💊🔬💊🔬💊🔬💊🔬💊🔬💊🔬💊🔬💊🔬💊 #books #bookstagram #bibliophile #read #pghreads #librarylife #library @carnegielibrary #history #bookijustread #readersofinstagram #bookworm #nonfiction #microbiology #sulfadrugs #antibiotics #bayerchemical #bacteriology #bacteria #readingwithcats #catstagram #orangetabby #cat #pharmaceuticals #medicalresearch #thedemonunderthemicroscope #thomashager #domagk at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Oh, A Reaper at the Gates. Where do I even begin with this book? I am an emotional person and I was NOT ready for the heartbreak that ensued. Hel has always been a character I liked, but she quickly moved to my favorite. Her portions of the book were the ones I both looked forward to and were anxious for at the same time. Also, learning about the Jinn, and I mean ACTUALLY learning the facts, was such a beautiful and important and just plane sad part of this book. It was one of my favorite moments honestly. I know I said before that everyone should give this book a try, but please, pick up this series. @sabaatahir is SUCH a good writer. #bookclub #bookstagram #booklove #bookpic #reading #readersofinstagram #bookworm #yaliterature #book #bookpicture #yafiction #yaliterature #yabooks #areaperatthegates #sabaatahir #review

I totally look put together, even though I just threw on this dress. Literally after a day of laying around. Plus…pockets! Tell me your size and I will show you what patterns I have for you!

Sometimes I read books that are not of my choosing, so to speak. #prophecyofthesisters was one of those. While I’m curious how the series ends, I have no plans to read more. I only read this because I have a student reading the book for the book project, and I don’t trust they will finish the book. If you are looking for a fantasy/historical fiction, this might be up your alley, just not something that called to me. #readersofinstagram #youngadult #fantasy #librarybook #teacherread #bookprojectduefebruary27

Willow by Julia Hoban ⭐️⭐️ • • I’ve owned this book since my junior year in high school (6 years). It’s probably one of the oldest books on my TBR shelf. Every year, I intend to read this book and never get around to it because I always seem to find something that interests me more. For #ContemporaryAThon I finally gave myself an excuse to read this one! • • Willow follows a teenage girl, named Willow, through her journey with self-harm after her parents pass away in a car accident that Willow caused. Willow meets Guy, who takes it upon himself to try to help Willow fix herself and her problems. • • First off, I want to say that if I read this book when I was still in high school, I probably would have enjoyed it a lot more. Now, however, I found it to be slightly too “happy” of a story. Not happy in the sense that everything was perfect and fun, but happy in the sense that everything seemed to work out too well, too easily. After reading some other goodreads reviews, many others have mentioned the fact that love or a relationship will not immediately solve your problems especially when it comes to self-harming, but this book implies it does. I also don’t love how this book was handled. It seemed to be more of a romance story with some (slightly graphic) self-harm thrown in at random. If you’re struggling with self-harm or are recovering from self-harm I would highly suggest NOT reading this book because it could be very triggering. Overall, I wish this book would have been handled a little bit differently. If you’ve read Willow, let me know what you thought of it in the comments! • • #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookphotography #bookish #bibliophile #bookobsessed #booksofinstagram #bookworm #readersofig #readersofinstagram #bookworld #ilovebooks #books #book #reads #readmorebooks #alwaysreading #bookshelf #readinginoz #willow #juliahoban #yacontemporary #booktube #yafiction #yareads #contemporarybook

It’s been a rough few days. 2/3 of the kids are down with fever, and then the radiator in the garage blew, partially flooding that space, and then seeping into my library/office room.

I discovered this author just a few short months ago. I have been devouring each and every audiobook I get my hands on. 🎧 This book blew me away emotionally. It is no secret I am a giant softy. So some stories just hit those tear ducts and this is one of them for me.😢 The love, the fear it’s so intertwined I couldn’t get enough I didn’t want to pause of any reason. Have you read/listened to this one? Is it on your TBR list? If it isn’t then I highly recommend you do. #authorlove #fortheloveofbooks #bookish #readersofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #coverlove #romancebookstagram #romancebooks #romancebookstagram #audiobooklove #audiobookstagram #audiobooks #audioheaven #romanceaudio #bookrecommedations #listeningisreading #loveislove #MMRomance #LGBTRomance #Narratorlove #touchingstories

I’m so excited about the new pictures I took tonight, the quality is AMAZING 🤩 My mom and I went to Target earlier and I saw @tezza has a book out about how to manage your Instagram and I’m really excited to get farther into it and figure out better ways to grow this account and get a really good feed going. 🌟 • QOTD: Do you use your phone camera for pictures or do you use a DSLR camera? AOTD: I usually use my phone camera but hopefully I’ll be using more DSLR pictures soon! 📸 • • • #bookstagram #booklife #booklove #booklover #read #bookworm #bookwormlife #emandherbooks #booknerds #bookblogger #weasleyisourgryffinking #magicnbooks #vscoreads #bookishgoodies #booksofinstagram #bookish #readersofinstagram #amreading #housecupreadathon #instastyle #target #weightedblanket at Reading, Pennsylvania

This is my January @theyachronicles “Up to no good”, book box! - The featured book is The Gilded Wolves and here is the Good Reads summary: No one believes in them. But soon no one will forget them. It's 1889. The city is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets. Here, no one keeps tabs on dark truths better than treasure-hunter and wealthy hotelier Séverin Montagnet-Alarie. When the elite, ever-powerful Order of Babel coerces him to help them on a mission, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance. To hunt down the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin calls upon a band of unlikely experts: An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian banished from his home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in arms if not blood. Together, they will join Séverin as he explores the dark, glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the course of history—but only if they can stay alive. - This book has been added to my tbr jar and I can’t wait to get to it!!! - #theyachronicles #book #books #bookstagram #goodreads #booklovers #bookaddict #bookshelf #bookphotography #fiction #novel #paperbacks #bookish #bookishlove #epicreads #booksofinstagram #igbook #igreads #bibliophile #readersofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #bookblogger #mybookfeatures #instabook #sarahjmaas #paperbacks #hardcover #bookshelf #shelfie

Look what turned up! 👀 I remember this coming in the mail after @teen.ink accepted a piece I had written when I was fifteen. I kept on my desk for years always looking at it and feeling that same hunger for more. I stashed it away in my desk when I decided to pursue education to have a stable income. Every time I saw it over the years the same feeling came back, but with a haunting guilt that I had left something behind. Well tonight it turned up, and guess what. I don’t feel so guilty anymore. In fact, I finally feel like I’m making my old self proud. That’s what really matters. 😌 .

“Love is the feeling we have for those we care deeply about and hold in high regard. It can be light as the hug we give a friend or heavy as the sacrifices we make for our children. It can be romantic, platonic, familial, fleeting, everlasting, conditional, unconditional, imbued with sorrow, stoked by sex, sullied by abuse, amplified for kindness, twisted by betrayal, deepened by time, darkened by difficulty, leavened by generosity, nourished by humor...” Powerful stuff. #read #dearsugar #authorssupportingauthors #saturdaynight #cozywithabook #authorjudiann #readersofinstagram

""But God doesn't change." "Men do, though." "What difference does that make?" "All the difference in the world," said Mustapha Mond." ••• That is the thing about dystopian novels - it scares and what is even more frightening is that the reason behind this fear is no one else, but us. I often think that if, for a moment, we drop ourselves from the hurlyburly of our pride, only then we might realise how small and insignificant we are. ° Brave New World was published between the First and the Second World Wars. The sufferings in the world were and continue to be strikingly myriad. The world of the future in Brave New World, the World State, is the accumulation transit of seemingly utopian human desires. Viviparity is not discussed about. Feelings are off-limits. Death is cherished. Everyone belongs to each other and there is no ownership and jealousy in ‘relationships’ as such. This futuristic world seems to cater to the needs of its people. Their distresses are effaced by medical and in general, technological advancements. ° Human babies are ‘born’ artificially. They are genetically conditioned. This new world, just like others, is divided into predetermined classes – the difference being that this division is genetically imposed. Earlier this year, I ventured into the thorny world of Greek tragedies wherein, fate acts as the driving force. This fate, in the World State, is the genetic fate. ° Books act as perversity in this novel as it does in the few dystopian works I have read. John, “the Savage” as he is often called, is an outsider both for the Reservation and the World State. He is taught to read by his mother. He has nothing but a scientific manual and the complete works of Shakespeare to read from. Devoid of any colligate of human expressions, he relies on the words of the Bard. His quest for truth shatters in this new world and even though he tries to, he can’t separate himself from the prime notions of this new world. His fate, the fate he had chosen, leaves ponderous thoughts in air. ° Brave New World is undeniably one of the most thought-provoking books I have read in a really long time. It is an absolute must-read and a very important book. at Bolani, Orissa, India

Received an ARC of @melindafrenchgates new book yesterday. Going to start it tomorrow. On another note: the kids have been at camp since yesterday at 4. It is super quiet in my house and the dogs are confused. Keith and I did things today and bought a new TV and rug for the living room. We are so exciting.

"... kematian adalah muara dari seluruh kehidupan. Pada akhirnya, sekeras apa pun manusia berjuang untuk hidup dan meraih pencapaian, mereka akan berada di suatu titik ketika semuanya menjadi tidak berarti lagi. Untuk itulah Tuhan menciptakan kematian. Untuk mengakhiri segala rasa sakit." (hal 136)⁣ ⁣ Muara Rasa karya Devania Annesya⁣ .⁣ ~~~⁣ .⁣ Lagi-lagi saya tertipu. Isi buku ini sungguh tak seklise blurbnya. Saya bahkan tak mengira kalau buku ini akan membuat emosi saya meluap. Tak kunjung berhenti.⁣ ⁣ Tiga tokoh utama dengan konflik serupa tapi tak sama. Ditulis dengan sangat kuat, detil, dan mematikan bagi para pembacanya.⁣ Mungkin sedikit mudah ditebak, "ah ngga seru pasti", saya jamin kalian akan menyesal kalau berpikir demikian. Cerita ini dikemas secara transparan tapi tajam.⁣ ⁣ Flo, Val, dan Ravi. Mereka terlibat kisah cinta segitiga dengan masalah keluarga yang rumit. Buku ini sungguh luar biasa. Mengajarkan banyak hal tentang keluarga, cinta, kasih sayang, persahabatan, dan penyesalan. Ceritanya terasa sangat nyata. Dengan pembawaan yang sakit jiwa yang bisa membuat pembacanya gila.⁣ shit. ⁣ Series YARN terbaik diantara yang sudah saya baca.⁣ ⁣ RECOMENDED!⁣ 4.8/5🌟 #bookstagram #bookster #bookish #bookblogger #booklover #bookstagrammer #bookstagrammerindonesia #bibliophile #bookphotography #bookworm #bookaddict #booknerd #bookshelf #readersofinstagram #instabook #bookobssesed #bookreview #review #novel #bookstagramindonesia #photography #igreads #booklover #muararasa #yarn

“SIEGE AND STORM” & “RUIN AND RISING” BY LEIGH BARDUGO ✨ TW: graphic violence/death/rape/death of animals/torture/religion (if you’ve read these books and can think of any other potential triggers, pls let me know!!) 🚫 SS: 4/5 stars, RR: 5/5 stars!! 🌟 so... you know everything i mentioned i didn’t like in “shadow and bone”?? yeah, all of that was fixed in the other two books in the trilogy, and i am so happy!!! i loved both of these books so much!! 🥰 i honestly think just the introduction of nikolai increased the quality of this series by a lot. 🦊 i also just loved the whole cast of characters we had by the last book!! 👫👭👫👬 plus i couldn’t predict all the twists and turns the story took, which was refreshing and made my reading experience amazing. i think i still love the “six of crows” duology a bit more than the grisha trilogy, but it’s definitely up there on my fave series list. 😍 also this seems to be an unpopular opinion, but i didn’t hate mal...? he was awful in the first book, but in these ones, i found i liked his character and where his story went. 🤷🏼‍♀️ all in all, i don’t know if this post was coherent or not, but i seriously loved my time reading this series, these two books specifically. i highly recommend you pick it up if you enjoy fantasy!! 📚💖 (ps - i am absolutely in love w leigh bardugo now 😅)
