Buon pomeriggio lettori 😘 Come state? Oggi volevo chiedervi se avete letto questa duologia, ovvero "Wintersong" e "Shadowsong" di @sjaejones ? Il primo volume mi aveva davvero entusiasmato, nonostante la lentezza dei primi capitoli, ma devo ammettere che per certi aspetti il secondo mi ha un po' deluso. Alla fine mi é sembrato che mancasse qualcosa...non posso dire molto per evitare spoiler a chi non li avesse ancora letti 😂 Se volete saperne un po' di piú su entrambi potrete trovare le recensioni sul blog (prive di spoiler). N.B. Visto che sono un po' vecchie come recensioni, dopo aver cliccato sul link nella bio, andate su "cerca" che troverete nella barra laterale a destra 😊 Li avete giá letti? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #wintersong #shadowsong #sjaejones #libri #bibliophile #bookishlove #bookblogger #ioleggoperché #bookporn #booknerd #fantasy #bookstagrammer #bookish #bookaholic #leggeresempre #cup #hogwarts #bookworm #lettricecompulsiva #bookishphotography #bookstagram #recensioni #newtoncompton

""Why won’t you leave me alone?” I whispered one night as he hovered behind me while I tried to work at my desk. Long minutes passed. I didn’t think he would answer. I even had time to hope he might have gone, until I felt his hand on my shoulder. “Then I’d be alone, too," he said, and he stayed the whole night through, till the lamps burned down to nothing." (Leigh Bardugo, Siege amd Storm) The Darkling.❤ No other words needed.

I loved Wintersong and Shadowsong, and I especially loved the way that music was an essential component of the story. 🎼 🎶 If you haven’t read this duology yet, it’s definitely worth checking out. Inspired by Labyrinth and thoroughly dark and haunting, the pair was one of my favorite reads last year. 💜 (Also, the covers are gorgeous! 😍) . Speaking of music, what’s the last song you listened to? Mine is L.O.V.E. by Park Ji Hoon. 🎵 . . . . . . . . . . . . #booksandcandles #wintersong #shadowsong #sjaejones #bookishcandles #currentlyburning #bookishrainbow #rainbowbooks #bookish #bibliophile #booksbooksbooks #yabookstagram #yabooks #yafantasy #instabooks #booksofinstagram #readersofig #booksofig

“Who are you?” I whisper. He nods at me. You know who I am, Elisabeth. “You are a man with music in his soul,” I tell him. “You are the one who showed me a way to myself, when I was lost in the woods. My teacher, my playmate, my friend.” I choke a little on the sobs rising from my throat. “You allowed me to forgive myself for being imperfect. For being a sinner. For being me.” If my brother is my grace, then the Goblin King is my mercy. — S. Jae-Jones, Shadowsong 🥀👑🐺 • • • Wintersong is one of my favorite duologies. It’s beautifully written and I love the characters and the world that S. Jae-Jones has created. It’s magical, wonderful, and heart wrenching all at the same time. • • Has anyone else read a duology? What are your favorites? I’d love to know!

QOTD : What's your most controversial unpopular opinion(s)??? 🎀 Fandom favorites for #fcfandom #faecrate 🔮🌹 I loved wintersong so so much. Kinda strange, but beautiful and poetic. These coasters are perfect! After I heard shadowsong was mostly Liesel and like no goblin king I was like hard pass. I would love to find out what becomes of him but just can't bring myself to do it. Perhaps someday.. idk.. it is such a beautiful cover though!!! And a caraval sticker was included. I'm in the minority here but I really didn't like caraval 😯😭 also a beautiful cover though.. I won't finish the series for sure. 🎈 . . #books #booknerd #bookworm #booklover #bookdragon #booksta #bookstagram #funkopop #funko #thegoblinking #meinherr #sjaejones #caraval #stephaniegarber #bookmerch #bibliophile #beautifulbooks #beautifulcovers #mustread #ilovethisbook #ilovetoread

Can you guess how many of these I've read yet? I give you a hint, it is shocking and appalling. ZERO! 🙈 And feel awful because some of these are the most hyped by @wordwoonders but also there's one from @paperfury and the fact that I need to read Kayla Ancrums debut. So much shame. . . .Do you have a stack of books recommendations you haven't read yet? I have a list from @recitrachel that I haven't read yet including Proxy....🙈 . . . #booklove #bookstagrammer #beautifulbooks #allthebooks #readersofig #mybookfeatures #bookstoread #bookchat #becauseofreading #bookworld #bookreviewer #bibliophilephotos #usomreviews #yalit #yabooks #thewickerking #kaylaancrum #theforbiddenwish #jessicakhoury #whiterabbit #calebroehrig #theresolutions #miagarcia #wintersong #sjaejones #yafantasy #bookstack #whenmyheartjoinsthethousand #theloveandliesofrukhsanaali

saturday ✨ . Day 13 of #bookeavensapr19 : Nature on the cover #aprilbookstagram19 : Bright and Bold . Just a short one from me today!! Featuring one of the best surprise reads of last year! Wintersong was such a surprise 5 ⭐️ read and I will recommend it to everyone It's just a shame that the amazingness of the first wasn't carried on into the second for me personally. It maybe should have stayed as a standalone to make it even better . And if I'm featuring Wintersong then you can also bet that my Goblin candle by @legendandflame will be here! I love their candles and this is one that smells amazing burning! But it's also too pretty, that I don't want to burn through it completely 😰 . QOTD: what series do you think should have stayed a standalone? . . . . . . #bookstagram #booklover #bookphotography #bookaholic #booknerd #bookaddict #bookworm #bookishfeatures #coverlove #yafiction #bookchallenge #fantasy #flatlay #wintersong #shadowsong #sjaejones #bookishcandle #candles

Wintersong by S Jae-Jones. 4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ . I must admit, I was apprehensive at first. I didn’t know what to expect from this story - the cover is stunning and the synposis vague and as I read I did begin to wonder if I had made the right choice...But I had. . Wintersong is a dark, romantic poetic story based around a mortal girl and a goblin world - something which I have never read before ❄️ . Although the story does not have adventure/action/main events etc, it is whimsical and spellbinding and you are captivated by the descriptive writing and the story showing rather than telling. The sheer volume of magical prose had me captured from start to finish and means I will be picking up #shadowsong next time I am buying books. . Have any of you read Wintersong? Did you enjoy it as much as I did? . . . #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #wintersong #sjaejones #litmosphere #bibliophile #reader #reading #bookaddict #bookish #bookworm #bookaholic #yafantasy #youngadult #goodreads #currentread

It's time for an unboxing for faecrate's March fandom fantasies (1yr anniversary) box. I am in love with this book cover, both the dust jacket (inside and out) and the beautiful embossed naked cover, just wow! I am SUPER in love with the city of weep snowglobe inspired by strange the dreamer of course, the necklace inspired by the air awakens series and the wintersong coasters. I loved wintersong! The Polaroid is too stinking cute too! I haven't gotten a sub box in ages so this was quite exciting. I'm sad I haven't read any books from air awakens. I know this is a spin off so I'm hoping it makes sense to read anyways.. if not, it'll be very photogenic anyways 🤣😂😍 . . #books #booknerd #bookworm #booklover #bookdragon #booksta #bookstagram #bookmerch #faecrate #fcfandom #unboxing #subscriptionbox #bibliophile #shelfie #strangethedreamer #museofnightmares #lainitaylor #beautifulbooks #beautifulcovers #tbr #wintersong #sjaejones #airawakens #cityofweep #unseencity #acomaf #acourtofmistandfury #sarahjmaas #queenmaas

Werbung Unbezahlt Servus meine Lieben Freunde 🙋‍♀️❤ Wie geht es euch? 🤔 Auch ich hab jetzt endlich Ferien und habe wieder mehr Zeit um zu lesen 🤓. Das Buch Wintersong von @sjaejones hab ich diese Woche beendet und nun kommt ein kurzes Fazit dazu 😊. Für ein Fantasybuch war der Schreibstil sehr locker und verständlich, was ich gut fand. Die Idee mit dem Erlkönig war echt kreativ, da ich noch nie so etwas gelesen habe 😘. Ich fand es so toll, dass eine amerikanische Autorin mal über unser schönes Bayern geschrieben hat und die Hauptperson dort lebt 😄😍. Manchmal war die Protagonistin echt kompliziert und schwierig, doch das legt sich mit der Zeit wieder 🤓. So zum Ende hin, zog sich das Buch etwas in die länge, dass ich schade fand, aber das Ende hingegen war echt spannend und bewegend 😍. Ich freu mich schon so auf den 2 Band, doch bis jetzt ist kein weiterer übersetzt worden 😭💔. 4/5🔖 Q: Welches Buchpaar soll eurer Meinung nach nicht zusammen sein 🙅‍♂️🙅‍♀️? Wunderschönes Wochenende 🤗😍 Macht's gut ❤🙋‍♀️ #papego #piperverlag #wintersong #sjaejones #erlkönig #lisl #bavaria #bookpost #bookstagram #19für2019 #bookchallenge #rezension #white #winter #april #easter #love #booksbooksbooks #buecher #bookworld #worldofbooks #ilovebookstagramming #ilovebookstagram

Day 11 of #aprilinbooks19, #btbapril19, and #aprilbookstagram19- the themes today are “if you like that, read this,” “title page art,” and “last book you read.” ✨ 1. I recently finished #thedarkelements trilogy by #jenniferlarmentrout, and just finished #stormandfury last night. If you liked TDE, definitely pick up Storm and Fury, which is a spin-off series of TDE. They’re both paranormal fantasy genre, and I liked seeing previous characters in S&F. I actually liked Storm and Fury even better than the original series, since I felt like it had more action and plot (while still having that JLA signature romantic tension and yes, angst) . 2. If you liked #onyxandivory by #mindeearnett’s fantasy elements and friends to enemies to lovers romance, you should read #everthehunted and #everthebrave by #erinsummerill . 3. If you liked the wonderfully weird aspects of #vassainthenight by #sarahporter, you might like #thewrenhunt by #marywatson. They’re both set in modern day, but have magic involved, and gave me bizarre vibes, in a good way. VitN is Eastern European folklore-inspired, while TWH has druids and is set in Ireland . 4. If you liked the dark, seductive feel of #wintersong by #sjaejones, you should pick up #lipstouchthreetimes by #lainitaylor. It’s even got great illustrations that go with the 3 individual stories in the book that are actually done by her husband. If you’re into the whole goblin thing, I’d point you to the first story, Goblin Fruit (emphasis on the dark and creepy) . 5. If you like #thebearandthenightingale/ the #winternighttrilogy by #katherinearden, you should read #spinningsilver by #naominovik, which is also set in a magical medieval Russia and is beautiful and atmospheric . 6. If you like #howlsmovingcastle by #dianawynnejones, you might enjoy #illusionsoffate by #kierstenwhite. They’re very different stories, but IoF has certain aspects about it that reminded me of Howl’s Moving Castle, like the setting, the magic, and the magician + girl situation

“Once there was a little girl who played her music for a little boy in the wood. She was small and dark, he was tall and fair, and the two of them made a fancy pair as they danced together, dancing to the music the little girl heard in her head” . I am excited to read Wintersong as I have heard lots of positive reviews about it. It sounds cute as a story goes but I’m trying to understand what era this is set in....I’m a bit lost but hey ho! IM DIVING IN!!! 🤣 This is my first goblin related book (if that’s a thing, and I’m not sure what to expect!) . Have any of you guys read it? Is it as good as I hope? . . . #wintersong #booksofinstagram #bibliophile #litmosphere #bookstagram #sjaejones #bookish #bookaddict #bookaholic #bookworm #yafantasy #youngadult #bookstagram #reading #goodreads #currentread

What's the weather like where you're at? 🌸 I'm more than 100 pages into The Gilded Wolves and really enjoying it so far! I'm looking to get more read tonight. 😁😁 Also, accidentally typed kore instead of more there at first. Lol. Get it? 😉 🌸 In true Colorado fashion, it's snowing today. We've had a winter storm and blizzard warning across the state in effect until tomorrow afternoon, so I thought I'd emanate it in my picture today. Thankfully the light cooperated just enough with me to take this. I need to take more photos tomorrow. 🌸 #bibliophile #bookstagram #reading #yalit #youngadult #bookgirl #Wintersong #SJAeJones #igreads #book #aesthetic #theme #booklove #bookbookowl #diocandleco #yabooklover #bookishmerch

Happy Wednesday, loves! How is this week treating you? ☾ ⠀ I’ve already decided which books are going to be part of my April TBR 🙈 (even though it’s been a while since April started, who cares? I definitely don’t). This year has been a slow pace reading wise year. So far I’ve read 8 books out of the 50 books I decided to put on my Goodreads Challenge. ⠀ So, ‘La voz de Amunet’, by Victoria Álvares arrived today, and I am so excited to read it! It was actually published on Monday and I wasn’t expecting it to arrive until next week, so I’m super pump that it arrived earlier 🧡 ⠀ ‘Shadowsong’, by @sjaejones is a book that I’ve been wanting to read since last year (?) (when was is published? Well, since it was published) and I finally decided to dig in! (btw, I think this book is going to be published in a few months in Spain thanks to @rocaeditorialjoven). And ‘Furyborn’, by @clairelegrand is a book that I’ve been wanting to read for a while but wasn’t sure about it until just a month ago. The second part is coming out next moth and it’s called ‘Kingsbane’ and the first book was published in Spain (this month), thanks to @teenplanetlibro ☺️ ⠀ So many new books and so little time to read them all… 😬 ☾ What are you planning on reading this month? Any book that is being published this month that you can’t wait to read?

"Что толку бежать, если ты на неверном пути?" . Знаете, не умею растягивать удовольствие, не умею долго наслаждаться книгой. Если книга мне нравится, я просто залпом её читаю, всё.🤷‍♀️ Никаких полумер.😜 Эту же книгу я читала три дня. Для меня это долго... 😒 Не надо кидать в меня тапками, знаю о данном произведении много восторженных отзывов, но во мне не осталось и следа после прочтения. Я не говорю, что книга мне понравилась или не понравилась, она мне просто никак. Все как будто прошло мимо меня. 😐 Задумка у истории интересная, но вот воплощение....🙄 Эта книга мне чем-то напомнила "Зимнее серебро" Наоми Новик, то ли атмосферой, то ли общими чертами... В центре повествования 18-летняя девушка Элизабет. Она старшая в семье и имеет сестру Кете и брата Йозефа. Лизель любит музыку и пишет её, но отец не видит потенциал дочери. Она нелюбимая дочь и считает себя уродливой. Девушка погрязла в жалости к себе, в зависти красоте Кете и  таланту Йозефа. Роковой стает её встреча с высоким таинственным незнакомцем, который в итоге оказывается Королём Гобоинов. Эрлькёниг заманивает Кете в Подземный мир и Лизель отправляется спасать сестру, но сама попадает в ловушку. Героиня это вообще какой-то треш...🤪 В итоге у нас получается не злобный, а скромный и аскетичный Король гоблинов. Героиня же, просто озабоченная Лизель🤣. Бедный Эрлькёниг😂 . И даже музыка книгу не спасает. . "Из всех человеческих эмоций надежда была для меня самой невыносимой. Со всеми остальными я справлялась легко: гнев вспыхивал и потухал, грусть сама собой рассеивалась, счастье накатывало и уходило, а надежда… Надежда упрямо держалась, точно сорняки, которые прорастают опять, сколько их ни выпалывай. А еще она причиняла боль." #сджейджонс #зимняяпеснь #фэнтези #музыка #гоблины #чточитаешь #мирдолжензнатьчтоячитаю #читай #книги #sjaejones #wintersong #fantasy #youngadult #book #bookstagram #read #instareads #booklover #instabook #booklove

📚RECENSIONE📚 Chi non conosce la storia di Ade e Persefone? Chi non ne è rimasto in qualche modo affascinato? Pensare a una sorta di “principe oscuro” che ama e rapisce la sua bella, ma che in qualche modo, non può davvero averla per sé… Sulla storia mitologica di questa coppia si sono andate a creare varie trame e storie, è il caso, per esempio, di Labyrinth, il film degli anni ‘80 in cui l’oscuro Re dei Goblin era interpretato da David Bowie e dal suo sguardo dagli occhi eterocromi. 🏹 È proprio a queste due storie, così simili e prototipiche, che si rifà la storia del romanzo Wintersong di S. Jae-Jones. 🌹 La trama è semplice: in un periodo storico non meglio precisato, ma in cui la tecnologia non esiste e si crede ancora alla magia, anche se in minima parte, vive Elisabeth, detta Liesl. Una ragazza normale, per certi versi banale: non bella, anzi, una donna di casa che si prende cura della sua famiglia e dei suoi due fratelli. Una ragazza abituata a rimanere nell’ombra, a non prevalere. Sua sorella, d’altronde, è bellissima. Suo fratello è un fenomeno con il violino. La sua storia è quasi destinata a cadere nel dimenticatoio. Se non fosse che… 🌸 Elizabeth ha un dono, il dono della musica. Un dono diverso da quello di suo fratello, forse persino più potente e irruento. E che l’ha portata a conoscere il più oscuro dei re: il Re dei Goblin. Vive nelle sue memorie, come un sogno infantile, almeno fino al giorno in cui sua sorella non viene rapita… 🌹 CONTINUA… Recensione completa sul blog di @leggendoabari *** TRAMA: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 PERSONAGGI: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 STILE: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 VOTO TOTALE: 🌟🌟🌟🌟+ . #fantasy #recensione #fantasyita #newtoncompton #wintersong #sjaejones #bookstagram #booklover #booksaddict #bookholic #instabook #cover #bookporn #fantasia #books #libridaleggere #libriconsigliati #bookblogger #blogger #bookstagrammer #adeepersefone #retelling @newtoncomptoneditori

“There is music in your soul. A wild and untamed sort of music that speaks to me. It defies all rules and laws you humans set upon it. It grows from inside you, and I have a wish to set that music free.” 🎶❄️🎻❄️🎶 “”I am not afraid of you,” I said quietly. “Oh?” The Goblin King lifted his head. “I am the Lord of Mischief, the Ruler Underground,” he said, mismatched eyes glinting. “I am wildness and madness made flesh. You’re just a girl” -he smiled, and the tips of his teeth were sharp- “and I am the wolf in the woods.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I absolutely loved this book. It was dark and musical, romantic and devastating. And the writing was so beautiful. Can’t wait to find the time to reread this duology someday💓 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •What book(s) do you wish got a little more love?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bookstagram #yalit #YAfantasy #yabooks #yabookstagram #ireadya #bookish #bookdragon #bookishmerch #bibliophile #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #bookphotography #bookfeature #bookaesthetic #booksofinstagram #readersofinstagram #bookalicious #beautifulbooks #bookaholic #booklover #bookfeaturepage #bookgram #bookstagrammer #spreadthebooklove #bookqueen #yaduology #wintersong #sjaejones

Ich liebe Challenges und deshalb freue ich mich, #3bücher von @hisandherbooks entdeckt zu haben. Das ist meine erste Fotochallenge und ich hatte Spaß, Bücher zum Thema 'Fantasywesen' zu suchen: Sirenen, Märchengestalten, der Erlkönig. Alle drei Bücher haben mir auf ihr Weise unglaublich gut gefallen, waren absolute Highlights und sind unbedingt empfehlenswert. #3bücher #daswildeherzdersee #diechronikenvonazuhr #wintersong #alexandrachristo #bernhardhennen #sjaejones #dtv #fischertor #ivi #bookstagram #bookaholic #instabooks #booklover #booknerd #bookstagramgermany #books

march 31st 2019 - hello, today has been a very difficult day so far, i’m struggling with my anxiety and depression, and not even reading helps me feeling better, though i’m trying. i started reading wintersong last night and i’m curious about it, i’m only a few pages in so i don’t know what to think of it so far but i’ll let you know once i make up my mind. have you read it? if so did you enjoy it? have a wonderful sunday! mine will be spent with lots of tea and reading. oh and i finished the wicked king last night and the second half of the book was so good! i gave it a 4/5 stars because nothing much happens for the first part of the book and it was a little .. i don’t know, boring? but the second part was wow, so many things happen and it’s so well written, i really enjoyed myself!!

I finished Wintersong several days ago, but I keep thinking about the story and characters. This is a reminder to not forget the books that have been sitting on your shelves for a long time; I've had this one for nearly two years and I so wish I had gotten to it sooner! The story centers on Liesl, a silenced but gifted composer, and the Underground's Goblin King. This is a dark, haunting setting that pulled me in from the beginning. I felt like I was in a cold, eerie place whether I was reading under a blanket or out in the warm sun. While Liesl frustrated me at times, I related to her in many ways. Feeling silenced, ridiculed. Feeling both empty and full of burning emotion. Needing to be broken open in a way. Her interactions with the Goblin King are my favorite parts, and I found him to be such an interesting character--one of those you're slightly frightened of but also drawn to. The goblins he rules over are disturbing creatures to say the least. This is not a lighthearted story. It is often bittersweet and full of anguish, and there are no easy choices for any of the characters. But as someone working on finding my own voice, I connected with Wintersong much more than I was expecting.🌹 . . . . . #bookstagram #bookreviews #wintersong #sjaejones #booksinnature #bibliophile #booksaremylife #booksbooksbooks #bookandnature #bookstagrammer #fantasybooks

I've had this book for a while now, sat in my TBR pile waiting for me to get to it. I keep picking it up because I am just so drawn to the cover art. I find it really beautiful and enchanting. With all the ARCs I have to read it looks like I won't get to this until next month 😣🙈. QOTD - do you have a book that you can't just resist looking at?

↛ “She was the sun and he was the earth waking from a thaw.” - S Jae-Jones ↚ • So I’ve been having a pretty low month, emotionally/mentally. I’m pretty sure my nearly month long reading slump is due to it. And that makes me more upset at times because reading is something I’ve always enjoyed my entire life no matter how I felt. I read mostly fantasy because it’s my escape. I have been focusing more on art and music to replace it, my way of not dwelling too much on the bad. I’ve started dabbling in watercolors! I’ve always loved them.

Happy Saturday! I really haven’t read lately... classes have started and it’s just been insane. And I was going to audition for a show, but I life has also been insane. ——————————————- QOTD: what really prevents you from reading? How busy you are? To you get distracted easily? Do you go through phases? What books do you read to get out of your slump? ——————————————— AOTD: I find school hinders me most. And I tend to gravitate toward epic fantasy when I really want to get back into reading. Books like Throne of Glass or Harry Potter even. ( Harry Potter isn’t exactly Epic fantasy, but it’s up there!) ——————————————— I was also tagged by @faithful.book.addict To do #fiveauthorsidliketomeet and #spellyournameinfictionalcharacters.

"There is music in your soul. A wild and untamed sort of music that speaks to me. It defies all the rules and laws you humans set upon it. It grows from inside you, and I have a wish to set that music free." - S. Jae-Jones • It's finally spring! 🌻🌿🐑🌹🐄🌷🌼🐷 I've decided that I will go back to my bright spring/summer theme 🌞 This is the last photo in my autumn/winter theme, which is why I've used Wintersong 👀 • I was so happy when I found Shadowsong in the sale section at the American Book Center! I read Wintersong some time ago, so I might have to read it again before starting Shadowsong 🤔 • Q: Do you re-read books before reading the new book in the series? • This lovely postcard is from @oktoberdots!

{People err who think my art comes easily to me. I assure you, dear friend, nobody has devoted so much time and thought to compositions as I. There is not a famous master whose music I have not industriously studied through many times.} - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart • Hello everyone 🎶 Since I'm not reading in these days I'm taking advantage of it to get a little closer to music. I never find a moment to concentrate and play a little, because I have so many things to do. Since I was a child I have always loved classical music and it is one of the reasons why I started and I still play the piano. These days I picked up some old sheets and I'm getting excited again about Mozart's Sonatas. Besides being all wonderful melodies, they give me the opportunity to practice and test my skills. In particular, in the last few days I have tried some four hands and I miss not having someone to play with but I find them wonderful anyway. I hope I never lose familiarity with this instrument because it has been my faithful companion for a long time 💙 • #qotd Do you listen to classical music? Which composer do you like? And do you play any instruments? 🎵 . . . #SJaeJones #wintersong #shadowsong #goblinking #mozart #wolfgangamadeusmozart #mozartsonata #piano #playpiano #pianoforte #playinstruments #pianist #mozartpiano #bookstagram #readingslump #bookreader #booklover #bibliophile #pianoexercise #violin #music #classicmusic

“It isn’t life that keeps the world turning; it is love.” -Shadowsong by @sjaejones 🌷 Hey guys! It has been an interesting day here. I swear, no matter what, this sickness just won’t go away! I will start to feel better for a couple days and then it’ll get bad again. Why can’t I just get sick like a normal person??? Any way, I had stared Shadowsong a couple days ago, but just haven’t been in the mood to read it. I’m thinking about straying away from my TBR for a bit. So I’ve picked up Suitors and Sabotage and will start that tomorrow! . QOTD: Do you have a TBR or do you mood read? . AOTD: I normally have a monthly TBR, but I’m in more of a mood read mood at the moment. 🌷 #readingrivalry #rrwhotellsyourstory: Book celebrating/involving the arts 🌷 #books #book #bookish #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booklife #booklove #bookworm #booknerd #bookdragon #shadowsong #sjaejones #bookandflowers #bookishflatlay

🥀 Good morning bookish lovelies ! Spring Break is almost over and I’ve now gotten the cold and cough the boys have. So... cheers to that? If I’ve been absent the last few days it’s only because I feel like death and I’ve had work and some side work and arc reading to do and sleep, there’s been a lot of sleep. . . 🎻 Raise your hand if you’ve read #shadowsong or #wintersong by @sjaejones ? ‘Metaphorically raises hand over here’ I’m still obsessed with these two books. While the first one was haunting and beautiful the second one was dark and twisted and eerie and I’m me enough to admit I like the haunting eerie books the best. . . 🎼I’ve mentioned before how these books are so different than other ones , as is, The Folk of Air series and An Enchantment Of Ravens. I still can’t put my finger on this style of writing other than its lyrical in a sense but every time I pick up a book like this I sigh with contentment. I love figuring out what the author is trying to portray without directly portraying it. Plus I love Shakespeare so just call me mad. . . 🎻 What about you? Have you read these? Anything else you can recommend ‘like them?’ Let me know below ! . . “All that remained of a person once they were gone was a legacy, which would linger only as long as you were loved or hated. Immortality was memory.” ― S. Jae-Jones, Shadowsong

I coveted this candle for ages. It took a minute to finally snag one during a restock. I am still beyond sad I never managed to snag the suriel 💀 I would sell half my soul for one lol.. seriously. 😁 I loved wintersong. So damn beautiful. Haven't read shadowsong even though it's one of the most beautiful books I own, I simply have no desire.. maybe someday. Unless someone can just tell me what becomes of the goblin king. That's all I care about. Lol. 😉 🌟QOTD : Any fun plans for your weekend? Its beautiful here in the PNW🍎🌲 🌟AOTD : Work work work work. Mommying. More work. Friday = Monday for me.

💜 "You are the one who showed me a way to myself, when I was lost in the woods. My teacher, my playmate, my friend. You allowed me to forgive myself for being imperfect. For being a sinner. For being me." 💜 My review of #Shadowsong by #SJaeJones, which is the sequel to #Wintersong, is now up on my blog. I gave it 3/5 stars and the link is in my bio. 💜
