I read this week 🤓 . (Amazingly - I liked everything.) . American Gods has been a book I’ve wanted to read forever. My partner considers it his favorite book and I - as I’m sure everyone knows and is sick of hearing - love Neil Gaiman. I wouldn’t say that this is my my most loved of his writing, but I enjoyed the “old gods vs new gods” concept and thought the characters were unique. It’s definitely an odyssey plot line, which I tend to be drawn to. I would also consider the book and show different entities. . Sally Rooney’s Normal People was recommended to me by the lovely @paperbackpoppet so I was stoked when I found out it was an option for April’s BoTM. I immediately selected it as my pick so of course it took over a week to make it to me. This book is a coming of age novel, about relationships, and how we shape and are shaped by others. It is not typical is plot or style, something that had a bit of a learning curve for me especially with the dialogue. I liked how Rooney allowed us to see the motivations of two separate characters, as well at their emotional struggles, and search for meaning (and even defining what that meaning is exactly) in love and life. . After reading Jason Reynald’s A Long Way Down last summer I knew I had to pick up Elizabeth Acevedo’s The Poet X. Xiomara transforms into The Poet X as she navigates high school, growing into her own person, and finding her voice. I’m glad I have this book on my classroom shelves. . I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend 🥰

Saturday, 20 April 2019 · “You never know," Jack said speculatively. "There may come a time when savages like William Hamleigh aren't in power; when the laws protect the ordinary people instead of enslaving them; when the king makes peace instead of war. Think of that - a time when towns in England don't need walls!” – Ken Follett, The Pillars of the Earth · →pillars of the earth review Rating: 4/5 🌟 This is a spoiler free review, it's not in depth kind of review just my general thoughts. I bought this book impulsively. I didn't not plan it, nor was I interested before buying it, I just needed to read something that wasn't YA fantasy so historical fiction seemed a good choice. BUT OH MY GOD! IT WAS AN EXCELLENT CHOICE! I really liked this book! The writing was amazing, the characters perfect, the plot interesting through the whole book! This is an absolute masterpiece! I loved both the historical and the fiction part. Follett did an amazing job of showing how people lived back then, what were they like etc. I enjoyed this book more then I expected. But, it was kind of too long for my personal taste. Also it got repetitive at time which was sort of annoying. The book could've been at least 200 pages shorter and there would be nothing missing from it. Which is why I'm giving it 4/5. Nonetheless, absolutely amazing and I definitely recommend it to everyone searching for a good historical fiction book. · →question of the day Q: have you read this book?

"I cursed when I looked down at the gate where two of the Arathrien, also known as my personal guard, had appeared."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For Crown of Conspiracy, I've been coming up with words which could be considered the 'old tongue', as opposed to the new tongue, or the common tongue. While I love the idea of countries having their own language, it's quite a hassle writing it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sofar, I only have different names for different terms, of which these five are just the beginning. The army, and the sisterhood have their own terms too, and there are some general ones as well as expletives. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For now, they're just words, but maybe if I feel up to it, I'll move onto short phrases and expressions too.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The terms above are the royal terms.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ *Possible Spoilers* • I. Want. More. • Once again, I am completely blown away by all the dang plotting and scheming, twists, the writing, the character development. Everything. Bardugo is a mastermind. And I honestly didn't feel that way after the Grisha Trilogy. • The character development for everyone was amazing. There are happy endings to be had, but realistic happy endings. Everyone is still flawed and broken, but that's okay. • Things I Loved: --Nina teasing Matthias is everything. --Seeing old friends from the Grisha Trilogy. --All things Jesper x Wylan, especially after Wylan is Wylan again. --Every one-on-one interaction between Inej and Kaz. The holding hands scene was so intimate and powerful. His gift to Inej in the end was incredible. --Nina's new powers. --Matthias's fate, while shocking, was incredibly poetic. • *sigh* I don't know what to do with my life now. • • • • • #bookstagram #bookaholics #books #bibliophile #instabooks #bookish #alwaysreading #booklove #fortheloveofbooks #bookworm #bookaddict #bookster #igreads #ireadya #readersofig #booksphotography #goodreads #bookreview #currentlyreading #readeveryday #flatlay #booksaremylife #bookstagramit #readingcommunity #kindle #sixofcrows #crookedkingdom #leighbardugo #grishaverse

@jola.roth.autorin asked, if we have a #quote, that leads either us or the protagonists of our #stories. Actually there are these lyrical lines by Anti-Flag, that describe the subtext of my works quite well. 🎸I fell in love with the song, when I was about to write my debut „Der Ether-Song“.✍️ These lines summarized the urgent feelings of my protagonists so well, that I had to make Abigail quote part of it within the book. 📖Apart from thrilling #horror- and fanatastic elements, self-discovery is an important aspect of the novels story. But the lines also fit the wishes, expressed by the protagonists of „Brodem“, my second novel.🏚️ Struggeling to survive in a postapocalyptic world, which is cruel and chaotic, the main characters wish to be able to change things for the better; instead of just waiting till there time runs out. I think, it's a good thing for us, to remember that - in our world - making changes (at least small ones, which matter, too), is much easier. „When we no longer dream, we die.“ Right? * #songquote #songquotes #bookstagram #instabook #booksofig #reading #readingcommunity #authorsofinstagram #authorscorner #amwriting #lifephilosophy #punk #punkattitude #mystery #thriller #dystopia #writingcommunity #selfpub #makereadingsexyagain #antiflag #bookcommunity #readingcorner #bookobsessed #behindthescenes #writer #writerslife #bookish

So pleased with this corner of the living room. It has so many of my favourite things!

🍃 Happy Saturday! Today I've spent the morning writing, enjoying the sunlight in a beautiful cafe ☀ I imagine the afternoon will consist of walking and reading 📚🍁 And I feel so blessed to have this time just to do that. Long weekends are the best 😁 . . One of my recommended reads for your holidays is Guernsey, or if you want the full titled: 'The Guernsey Literary Potato Peel Pie Society', written by Mary Ann Shaffer and Ann ie Barrows. Don't worry, the title has its own explanation in the book, both a humorous and tragic one. It depicts aspects of WW2 in light of the German occupation on the small island in Guernsey. It's a witty, romantic, and heart renching story written through letters of correspondence. I'll admit, at first it was a little weird not to have chapters, but I soon forgot about that detail when the story overtook my need to know more. If you're interested in historical fiction, then I highly recommend this read which has been made into a great motion picture, too 😉🎥 . . #historical #fiction #historicalfiction #books #bookphotography #fictionbooks #yabooks #yareads #ireadya #instareads #instabooks #ilovebooks #booknerd #bookworm #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookreviews #fictionreviews #bookblogger #bookblog #recommendedreads #recommendedbooks #recommendbooks #booknerdigan #melbournebooks #melbournereaders #youngadult #youngadultbooks #readingcommunity #readingforlife

¡Feliz viernes! Les cuento que por fin leí Una Obsesión Perversa (o Vicious) de Victoria Schwab y me encantó. . . Puntuación: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 Es un libro completamente entretenido, nunca aburre y siempre te deja con ganas de leer más. Sin embargo, mi parte favorita fueron los personajes, son muy complejos y están construidos a la perfección. Desde que empieza se puede apreciar que no son héroes y que las acciones que realizan no están impulsadas por el deseo de serlo (al menos en un principio). Gracias a los saltos en el tiempo podemos ver cómo cambian sus personalidades a través de los años, y es algo que me hace sentir aún más atraída a ellos, ya que siempre hay algo nuevo para descubrir. La escritura de Victoria me parece muy linda y atrapante. Es el primer libro que leo de ella y sé que no va a ser el último. ¿Cuál me recomiendan que lea después?

Day 19 of #imlostinthepageswithjess is all about favorite genres...and that's an easy one for me. I am a thriller girl, through and through. I have other loves, of course, like WWII historical fiction and YA novels, but thrillers are the ones I always come back to and can never turn down. This is just a short stack of some of my all time favorite thrillers. It's not all encompassing; many of my favs I don't own (yet 😉), but it's a good list. I don't know what it says about me that I love thrillers and my favorite TV show is Criminal Minds...anyone else sometimes worry what your taste in books & TV/movies means?? 😂🙈 #thrillerbooks #bookstack #bookspines #bookstagram #booksharks #bibliophile #readingcommunity #favoritebooks

This week has been a great one for reading (reviews to come next week!), and with two and a half precious vacation days left, I’m hoping to squeeze in one more book. I am so beyond excited to start my first novel of Marlon James’, A Brief History of Seven Killings. • What are you reading this weekend? Any plans for those celebrating Easter? I’d love to hear 💚

"the boy never cried again, and he never forgot what he'd learned: that to love is to destroy, and that to be loved is to be the one destroyed." I finally picked up City of Bones because I couldn't handle my two best friends who already are in love with the shadowhunter world. all I can say is that I'm ready. #book #bookseries #booksofinstagram #booksofig #bookish #booknerd #booklover #bookaesthetic #bookaholic #bookstagram #amreading #bookcommunity #cassieclare #cityofbones #themortalinstruments #claryfray #jacewayland #clace #readersofegypt #readingmood #readingcommunity #unitedbookstagram at Cairo, Egypt

I love any reason to celebrate books and reading! With #worldbookday right around the corner, I'm excited to help spread the word that Amazon is giving away 9  Kindle books FREE until April 23 to everyone! Amazon Crossing believes--and I completely agree--that books have the power to connect people across language, country, and culture through the power of storytelling. I've made in an effort over the last several years to read more translated books, so this is perfect! You can download any (or ALL) of the following titles: 📖 The Murmur of Bees by Sofia Segovia (@sofiasegoviaautora) 📖 The Passion According to Carmela by Marcos Aguinis 📖 This Life or the Next by Demian Vitanza 📖 Go by Kazuki Kaneshiro 📖 The Dark Heart: A True Story of Greed, Murder, and an Unlikely Investigator by Joakim Palmkvist 📖 All This I Will Give to You by Delores Redondo 📖 About the Night by Anat Talshir 📖 An American Princess: The Many Lives of Allene Tew by Annejet van der Zilj 📖 The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Potzsch . You can download them by going to www.amazon.com/WorldBookDay-Jeana (link also in bio) or head over to my story and swipe up! Then come tell me which books you downloaded! . What's the last translated book you read? I think mine was The House of Spirits by Isabel Allende--and wow, that took me on a wild ride! #sponsored @amazonpublishing #readtheworld

ℚ𝕠𝕥𝔻: 𝓦𝓱𝓪𝓽 𝓪𝓻𝓮 𝔂𝓸𝓾𝓻 5-𝓼𝓽𝓪𝓻 𝓹𝓻𝓮𝓭𝓲𝓬𝓽𝓲𝓸𝓷𝓼? Which books do you just KNOW when you get around to them, you'll love? · 🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙 · 𝔸𝕠𝕥𝔻: Since fantasy is my favorite genre, I feel more comfortable assuming I'll love something. Take The Gentleman Bastards series pictured here. It's set in a place highly inspired by Venice with a thief as the main character, politics, and a fierce friendship compared to the likes of Sam and Frodo. I MEAN, YES. Also, it (apparently) appeals to non-fantasy readers as well. Others on my list are The Stormlight Archives, The Book of the Ancestor (a school of assassin nuns? 😍), and Foundryside. · 🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙 · I'm also a VERY eclectic reader and at least half of what I read falls outside the fantasy genre (Beartown, Eleanor Oliphant, Becoming, The Nightingale, etc). But I'm worse at predicting these. 🙈 Like those favorites listed above I would never have anticipated loving that much. I do have high hopes for Miracle Creek, Where the Forest Meets the Stars, and Where the Crawdads Sing. Thrillers are also VERY difficult to know if they'll be hit or miss. What genres are you better at predicting? · 🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙🌠🌙 ·

Excerpt of chapter 16 of #ScarsofDestiny . Days passed, then weeks, and Scarlet didn't leave her bedchamber. She cried a lot and spoke little. The house was filled with despair and sadness. . One day, while Mary and Rose were having tea in the drawing room—a habit that helped them bear the long gloomy days—, Scarlet opened the door of her bedchamber to the outer world. Stealthily, she stepped out on the cold floor and went downstairs. . When Mary and Rose saw Scarlet on the threshold of the room, barefoot and disheveled, the former approached her with caution as if her sister could shatter at any slight movement. . "We're happy to see you, my dear. Come and have a cup of tea with us," Rose invited her and served a cup of tea for her niece, while Mary brought her to the armchair. Scarlet just nodded and tried to hold the cup with her trembling hands. . "How do you feel, darling? Just talk to me, please," Mary begged. . Scarlet looked at her with empty eyes and replied in a husky voice, "I'll have to be fine one day, right?" She smiled sarcastically and added. "Next week I'll resume my classes. It's time to move on." Scarlet fixed her eyes on the fireplace and took soundless sips of tea. . Mary and Rose exchanged worried looks. They examined her in silence, feeling the draftiness in her words. No doubt that experience had broken Scarlet's heart, but it would also make her stronger. . After eating something, Scarlet returned to her bedchamber where the filled bathtub awaited her. She took off her clothes and immersed her lean body in the warm, comforting water. . As she relaxed, Scarlet closed her eyes and memories of Steve hit her mind. Her fingers traced her skin as she recalled his touches and kisses, and silent tears rolled down her cheeks. In a certain way, the new fragility of her body reminded her of the delicate Anett. Masochistically, she tried to figure out how her friend had died. She didn´t know the details of her death, yet! . Death. The word pierced her wounded heart once more, while a distant voice inside her head mocked, "Do you believe you can get over this?" She covered her face with her hands and shook her head. No, she couldn't.

Found this at the library and I’m so interested. From reviews I’ve gathered that this is a fast read that’s satirical, humorous, and dark. I’m curious to read about these two sisters and their family dynamic. . . . . . . #booksta #bookstagramit #readingismagic #booksbooksandmorebooks #booknerdigan #bookobsession #bookishpost #readersofinsta #bookstagramcommunity #readerslife #becauseofreading #igreaders #booksharks #allthebooks #bookaccount #bibliophilelife #bookster #bookseverywhere #bookishphotography #idratherbereading #booktastic #bookwormlife #readingcommunity #adultfiction

Ilvannian life is partially based on asian culture, or at least their style of dressing is. I think the Sisterhood may have some parts taken from Geisha life, but it's all rather loose Book 2 will be partially based on arabian culture. I haven't written that part yet, but am excited to get started on it! #womenwritingfiction #wwfchallenge2019 #crownofconspiracy #writing #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #fantasynovel #readersofinstagram #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #indiebooks #readerscommunity #readingcommunity at Netherlands
