Happy #socksunday. I'm rocking my new library card socks that I got at the Book Loft in Columbus last weekend. Holy book lover's dream, Batman, that place was amazing! 32 rooms packed full of books. .
I'm finally digging back into A Court of Mist and Fury in anticipation of the finale, A Court of Wings and Ruin being released next week! I'm also finishing the day with a cup of Sleepytime tea. I usually have a hard time sleeping so I'm going to see if adding this to my night time routine will help. .
My shelves are slowly but surely becoming emptier as the semester comes to a close and I'm forcing myself not to read unless it's for class because I need to stay focused on the stupid amount of work I need to do. That being said, I'm doing my best to post regularly but I'm sorry if I struggle these next two weeks!
Do you have finals coming up?
Happy Earth Day I feel this picture is a little bit ironic as the books that I love so much are not the most earth friendly. Just keep in mind that sharing books is a thing and if you love ebooks, you're ahead of the crowd as well. *
In my environmental literature class this semester, we've talked a lot about the places around us and how they jumpstart stories and actions. Write about your environment today to celebrate Earth Day!
If you're intimate with a place, a place with whose history you're familiar, and you establish an
ethical conversation with it, the implication that follows is this: the place knows you're there. It
feels you. You will not be forgotten, cut off, abandoned. -Barry Lopez
I don't really feel like posting. I haven't been in the mood to read today, I slept a lot and tried to read but I'm struggling with This is Effortless. It feels like a thriller more than a smut which is irritating me. I love Drew and Courtney but there's not a lot of humor which is kind of what I live for in smut books. Maybe it's just my mood right now but I'm really missing Travis and Viola what are you currently reading?
After taking foreverrrrr to finish the book before, which was stupid because it was really great, I'm finally on the second last book of the #blackjewels series and I'm still dreading the final book BecAUSE I KNOW SOME OF THE ENDING because I'm stupid and read ahead seriously love the whole concept of this series. It actually blew my mind at how #annebishop created such an amazing and elaborate world with completely consuming characters. The storyline is amazing. I really am enjoying this series and I'm dreading the end
So excited to take a trip back to @authormaxmonroe 's Bad Boy Billionaires world (I wanna live anywhere Thatcher exists) with their latest (spinoff) series! The first title is Dr. OB and it comes out Tuesday!!!

Another Book Finished as part of my 52 Week Book Challenge..
Boa noite, pessoas lindas!
Vim, a gente hora da noite, desejar um feliz dia para aquele que nos faz viajar sem sair do lugar. Que nos faz suspirar e ter milhões de paixões ao mesmo tempo. Que nos tira da nossa realidade e nos leva a um mundo só nosso. -
E é claro que estou falando do nosso amado e fiel escudeiro... tchan tchan tchan tchan: LIVRO!. -
E também vim para justificar o meu sumiço. Estamos nos mudando essa semana de casa, estamos indo para a tão sonhada casa própria e as coisas andam bem corridas. É pinta parede, troca piso, muda isso.. muda aquilo. Uma verdadeira loucura. -
Sei tenho milhões de tag para responder e comentários lindos de vocês. Mas não me abandone. Prometo que vou tentar separar um tempo essa semana para colocar a casa em ordem (a real e a virtual). Mas eu li cada carinho de vocês e obrigada por sempre lembrarem de me marcar em #booktag. O carinho de vocês é importante demais pra mim. Muito obrigada mesmo!. -
Prometo que essa semana também sai resenha fresquinha pra vocês. Consegui sair da minha ressaca literária e terminei um livro. Aleluia!!! Haha.. então essa semana vai ser recheiada de novas postagens. Não sumam! ( diz a que vive sumindo, haha). -
Então por enquanto é isso.
• Toujours en pleine lecture commune de "The curse", de Marie Rutoksi, avec ma belle @roxreadingcorner! •
• Résumé: "Gagner peut être la pire des malédictions...
Fille du plus célèbre général d'un empire conquérant, Kestrel n'a que deux choix devant elle : s'enrôler dans l'armée ou se marier. Mais à dix-sept ans à peine, elle n'est pas prête à se fermer ainsi tous les horizons. Un jour, au marché, elle cède à une impulsion et acquiert pour une petite fortune un esclave rebelle à qui elle espère éviter la mort. Bientôt, toute la ville ne parle plus que de son coup de folie. Kestrel vient de succomber à la " malédiction du vainqueur " : celui qui remporte une enchère achète forcément pour un prix trop élevé l'objet de sa convoitise.
Elle ignore encore qu'elle est loin, bien loin, d'avoir fini de payer son geste. Joueuse hors pair, stratège confirmée, elle a la réputation de toujours savoir quand on lui ment. Elle croit donc deviner une partie du passé tourmenté de l'esclave, Arin, et comprend qu'il n'est pas qui il paraît... Mais ce qu'elle soupçonne n'est qu'une infime partie de la vérité, une vérité qui pourrait bien lui coûter la vie, à elle et à tout son entourage.
Gagner sera-t-il pour elle la pire des malédictions ? Jeux de pouvoir, coups de bluff et pièges insidieux : dans un monde nouveau, né de l'imagination d'une auteure unanimement saluée pour son talent, deux jeunes gens que tout oppose se livrent à une partie de poker menteur qui pourrait bien décider de la destinée de tout un peuple." •

I hope another Indonesian authors could give the world this kind of masterpiece. Written by Eka Kurniawan, Man Tiger giving us such an epic old Indonesian story. The plot, characters describes much about Indonesian traditions that almost forgotten by Indonesian millenials #book#bookstagram#bookworm#readinglist#bibliophile#mantiger#ekakurniawan#intj
I've had Sunshine State on pre-order for too long and can't wait to delve into it. #binarystar was so unique and amazing as are her short stories (still trying to get my hands on more) but I've been heavily into essays and nonfiction recently - reading and writing - and Sarah Gerard's work had been a big part of that.
I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but I'm not the biggest fan of secrets. But this trilogy is full of secrets (at least at the beginning) and I loved it!
Secret werewolves, secret witches, "I see dead people" type secrets. See? FULL of secrets
This is one of my favourite trilogies, and if you haven't read it before, I highly recommend it
If you had a magical/supernatural gift, would you be able to keep it a secret, or would the whole world know?

Story starter... how'd this lady get trapped in a tree?
