The first book launch I attended was Four Dead Queens by @astridscholte. What was your first bookish event?

Happy Wednesday guys! 
I hope everyone's day is going well. Mine has been very long because I was working all day, but it is finally winding down as I make dinner for my Hubby and myself. 
So one of my favorite things about my whole #bookstagram is using the beautiful props! I actually realized when I started that I had a lot of stuff in my house already, that I could use. I love victorian and vintage decor, so my house is pretty much full of little treasures already, including my book collection that just keeps growing, and I couldn't be happier. 🖤 
Q: Do you have a favorite book that was turned into a movie? And did you like the movie?

A: I fell in love with the Twilight books when I read them, and when I found out they were making movies, I was like HECK YEAH!! 🖤 I mean sexy Vampires and Wearwolves?? Awesome. But when I watched the first movie, I was really disappointed in the way they portrayed Bella! She wasn't supposed to be so akward, and it is almost unbearable how always she is in the movies. 😂

!!NEW IN STOCK!!
What Red Was by Rosie Price 'Throughout their four years at university, Kate and Max are inseparable. For him, she breaks her solitude; for her, he leaves his busy circles behind. But loving Max means knowing his family, the wealthy Rippons, all generosity, social ease and quiet repression. Theirs is not Kate's world. At their London home, just after graduation, her life is shattered in a bedroom while a party goes on downstairs. '

It is freezing cold in Sydney at the moment! Sydney is a summer city, and we just do not deal well with the cold. We all just bitch and moan about it until September finally arrives and all is right with the world again⁣ 🙈
•⁣
I’ve been feeling extremely jealous of all of your beautiful summer stacks so I decided to try and warm myself up by creating a #winterwarmers stack! This is a selection of books that are dark, and moody and full of atmosphere – books that you want to snuggle up with in front of a warm fire with a glass of red wine⁣ 🍷
•⁣
#TheSevenDeathsOfEvelynHardcastle is set in a gloomy and isolated manor in the English countryside – the perfect setting for the crazy, twisty, mindbending mystery that is this book! You’ll want to read this on in one sitting just to figure out what the hell is going on – perfect for snuggling under a cosy blanket! #TheForgottenGarden is also set in a dark and brooding castle. This is one of my all time favourite books, and involves a secret garden, an orphaned child, an old book of fairy tales and a dark family secret that has been buried for centuries🍂
•⁣
Both #Beartown and #TheGreatAlone are set in wintery landscapes – one in a small town in northern Sweden and the other in the wilds of Alaska – and both delve into the darker parts of human nature. Just reading these books makes you want to put on a pair of fuzzy socks and grab a mug of hot chocolate!⁣
•⁣
#TheHuntress is partly set in Russia (therefore, cold), but the reason I chose this one for this stack was more because of the dark undertones in this story. This one is about a trio of Nazi hunters on the tail of one of WW2’s most notorious murderesses – known as The Huntress. I loved the way this story was written and trying to figure out everyone’s secrets had me compulsively turning the pages.⁣
•⁣
#TheNightCircus is another of my favourite books of all time. I love the poetic, lyrical, brooding language, and I thought this story was dark and magical and brilliant. I can’t wait for Erin Morgenstern’s new book!⁣

Well lovelies, I present one of the best book stacks I’ve ever created. I would like to thank @comicsans413 for the small artwork you see in the background! Maddie will be MIA for awhile due to being away for a family reunion, so if we miss a few days please be patient! New video going up Saturday, my July bujo! Stay tuned! ~L

📚Q: The last book that made you cry?
.
This book made me fall in love, and then ripped my heart out, it wasn't like any of Colleen Hoover's books. This one is deep and intense and overall wonderful. It's the type of book that everyone should read because it gives you a whole nother point of view on abusive relationships and how they are on the inside in a way I never thought I could think of.

Turns out I have a lot more blue books then I originally thought I did but that’s alright. What are people’s thoughts on bookshelves that are done in colours so all red then green the blue books, that kind of thing ahaha. 
I’m currently doing a “100 squats everyday for a month” challenge and I currently struggle to sit down and stand up 😂😂 that’s alright though. 
QOTD- what if your favourite colour?

Hola! 🍂
Seguimos con la saga de la selección.
Realmente no considero dar spoilers sobre este libro ni el primero porque no cuento escenas exactas, pero de todas maneras  está a su criterio leer o no.
✨
💃La élite💃
Sinopsis: 
De las treinta y cinco chicas llegaron a palacio para competir en la Selección. Todas menos seis han sido devueltas a sus hogares. Y solo una conseguirá casarse con el príncipe Maxon y ser coronada princesa de Illea.

America todavía no está segura de hacia dónde se inclina su corazón. Cuando está con Maxon, se ve envuelta en un romance nuevo y que la deja sin aliento, y ni siquiera puede imaginar estar con nadie más. Pero cuando ve a Aspen en los alrededores de palacio, los recuerdos de la vida que planeaban tener juntos se agolpan en su memoria. El grupo de chicas que llegaron a palacio se ha visto reducido a la Élite de seis, y cada una de ellas va a hacer todo lo posible por ganarse a Maxon. El tiempo se acaba y America tiene que tomar una decisión.
✨
🍂Reseña:
Disfruté demasiado este libro, creo que lo más épico fue lo sucedido con Marlee, no paraba de leer frustrada por querer saber que era mentira, o que America estaba soñando, pero no, me dolió en el alma lo qué pasó, fue algo tan injusto a mi manera de ver, amo a ese personaje y no creo que se mereciera aquello, principalmente porque Maxon poco a poco estaba decidiendo quien seguiría y quien no, dentro de la competencia, pero teniendo en cuenta que la historia es un poco machista en lo que respecta al rey, a su sociedad y en sus leyes era algo que todas las participantes de la selección sabían como reglamento al ingresar, al principio al igual que America me dio un poco de rabia saber que Maxon no estaba haciendo nada por ayudar, pero con el paso de las páginas volví a tomar la fe en Maxon y su buen corazón al ver lo que realmente había sucedido, pero sin duda volviendo a la historia de America y Maxon, me encanta.
✨
Mi puntuación: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
¿Qué opinan del sistema machista utilizado en esta sociedad? ✨

I did the thing I always say that I’ll never do again...but then keep doing over and over. 
I bought a planner. 
It’s cute af and I’ll use it religiously for a few months and then never write in it again. I’ve accepted my truth, and I drink to it. 🍷
Does anyone else have a planner addiction?

“I learned to master the art of keeping things separate. There was my real life with all its alcohol soaked secrets in there was the role I portrayed in the stage play of my life....The crazy thing is I had never been the person I pretended to be, in the cracks in the façade were spreading. And into the cracks begin to flow more and more booze.”
//
This memoir brings you into the life of a successful and rich practicing lawyer in New York City who is also an alcohol and coke addict. Addiction is one of the hardest things about the human condition and I’ve always been moved by the stories of people’s darkest struggles. This one is incredibly vulnerable and raw. 5/5

Who else reads a lot of children’s books? 🙋🏻‍♀️ I always make sure I’m reading different genres and styles of books, and I don’t shy away from books for kids. Sometimes they’re incredibly fun reads for adults as well, and they’re often not too long. I’d love to hear some of your favourite children’s books 💜

Book Review: Storm Front by Jim Butcher. 1.5/5 stars. Don't waste your time. Please. 
There are very few books that I hate. This one just made it on that short list.
The writing was lackluster. It tried to sound quirky and funny, but ended up being cringe worthy on each page.
The characters were all flat and unlikeable. I honestly found myself hoping everyone would lose and die in the end (spoiler alert, that doesn't happen, sadly).
The plot was ALL OVER the place. I get that it was a mystery, and sometimes mystery books love weaving different threads of the story together, but nothing in this book seemed to line up or make sense. It was a hot mess. Don't waste your time. I also am being, perhaps, a little more critical than I usually am. Simply because this book came so highly recommended from several people. So I'll go against the tide and say, thank you, next.

#writeupjuly • day 18 • introduce your supporting cast

In the tradition of both family sagas and my writing style, the supporting cast in my WIP is...very extensive. 😅 There are at least 35 secondary characters that play important roles  in the story (you can see why it’s taking me so long to write it). I can’t and won’t introduce all of them, so I’ll stick with the characters who show up in Part 1:
.
• Newland, Sybil’s foster father, a transportation engineer whose reserved and often cantankerous disposition masks a lot of resentment as well as a lot of love
.
• Haidee, Sybil’s foster mother, a specialist doctor and researcher who brings light and life to everyone around her by her generosity, humor, and compassion
.
• Aleksey, Sybil’s childhood friend and an aspiring ornithologist who brings both peace and intellectual stimulation into Sybil’s otherwise hectic life
.
• Estrella, Sybil’s younger cousin who is more like a younger sister, bringing energy and optimism as well as stubbornness and a touch of audacity along with her wherever she goes
.
• Hester, Sybil’s sick aunt and Estrella’s mother who used to be a nurse but is now unable to do much beyond day-to-day routines and fretting about family secrets she’d sworn to keep
.
• Alouette, another one of Sybil’s cousins, who has long been a source of comfort, advice, and spiritual wisdom in Sybil’s life
.
What types or tropes of characters are your favorite? Or, who’s your favorite character in your current read?

Book Review: The Kiss Thief by L.J. Shenn. 4/5 stars. Would recommend. 
A cute little story about a modern day arranged marriage. It has romance, the right amount of angst, and a whole heap of self sacrificial love (which I'm a sucker for). There are also mafia men and politicians, which makes for an interesting back drop to everything. L. J. Shen has been a favorite of mine since I first read From Blood to Dust, and this definitely rekindled my love for her writing (Sinners of Saint and all its novellas fell flat for me).

Brooklyn, 1947: In the midst of a blizzard, in a two-family brownstone, two babies are born, minutes apart.

Anita Diamant’s “vivid, affectionate portrait of American womanhood” (Los Angeles Times), follows the life of one woman, Addie Baum, through a period of dramatic change. Addie is The Boston Girl, the spirited daughter of an immigrant Jewish family, born in 1900 to parents who were unprepared for America and its effect on their three daughters. Growing up in the North End of Boston, then a teeming multicultural neighborhood, Addie’s intelligence and curiosity take her to a world her parents can’t imagine—a world of short skirts, movies, celebrity culture, and new opportunities for women. Addie wants to finish high school and dreams of going to college. She wants a career and to find true love. From the one-room tenement apartment she shared with her parents and two sisters, to the library group for girls she joins at a neighborhood settlement house, to her first, disastrous love affair, to finding the love of her life, eighty-five-year-old Addie recounts her adventures with humor and compassion for the naïve girl she once was.
