today, i was tagged by @aarushireads to do the #fivethingsilovetodo challenge
❊
1. i love to write. i think this one was probably a given since this is my author page and i’ve said about 50 times by now that i’m working on publishing my first ever book
❊
2. i play video games just as much as i write. currently, i’m having an obsession with minecraft at the moment...probably fueled by @pewdiepie
❊
3. i love to read!! i have pictured the second book of the Legend series (i don’t have the first—should probably get it soon since it was my favorite). i’m a big fan of all genres but mostly YA and mystery
❊
4. i ski and snowboard in the winter and am on my universities team—which means going out every weekend!!! it’s one of my favorite hobbies and something i look forward to every year
❊
5. i know this is very *basic* but i also love traveling. i’ve been to school abroad and those were some of the best times in my life. i plan on also studying abroad in college and traveling to even more countries
❊
i’m tagging @sarinalangerwriter and @a.d_silver to do this challenge—of course if you’d still like to participate you’re more than welcome

Cleaning today has been accompanied by this: A Woman of no Importance. It's the untold story of Virgina Hall, WW2's most dangerous spy. It look me a while to get into this, the story is quite fast paced at times and I didn't get on with the narrators voice. However, after persevering, I'm now enthralled with the story of an American woman who worked for the British Secret Service in France setting up and working with sectors of the Resistance to fight the Nazi's. The story shows just how hard and unusual it was for a woman spy, especially one with a wooden leg. As the title suggest, she goes on to be a bad ass key player in the allied fight. *

Decided on trying a new editing style, I wanted to have a red tint for the theme of this book. 
Thank you so much @alibraryfaery for gifting me Nevernight 😊it’s made me laugh out loud and hold my breath while reading it. .

I’m enjoying it so far and my book slump has lifted 😌

🌸📖👉 Black. Blue. White. Pink + some of the prettiest covers on bookshelves! .
.
There’s something about sharp tones of black and white in contrast with vivid color that just makes a cover sing. I LOVED snapping this photo because a couple favorite covers + favorite books makes for a pretty picture indeed:
.
.
🌸 The Space Between Words by @shellphoenix — It’s such a powerful read, with vivid, all-things-French imagery. A gorgeous cover is the cherry on top. Highly recommended. .
.
🌸 The Headmistress of Rosemere by #SarahELadd — A combo of both a great story (with hallmark lyrical writing from Ladd) and a stunning cover. One of my favorites to read again. .
.
🌸 Bread & Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table by @sniequist — A cover that just beckons us to gather across the table and find fellowship with sights, sounds, and tastes colliding beautifully!
.
.
🌸 Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler — One if my favorite covers of all time. Hard to top this one for the timeless impact factor. .
.
🌸 The Secrets of Paper and Ink by @lindsayharrelauthor — I haven’t read this one yet but with Harrel’s beautiful style, it’s at the top of the TBR. This cover makes me like pink! (See earlier post...)
.
.
🌸 Toss in a couple of vintage-inspired pretties by #JaneAusten and INCREDIBLE The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by @anniebarrowsauthor and this #bookstagram pic is now one of my favorites ever! Favorite covers + colors for you? .

Sometimes reading grownup books all the time is just too hard. When I feel like I want to read something quick and easy, I usually turn to the comforting chapter books I loved as a kid. Anne of Green Gables, The Borrowers, Harry Potter, Nancy Drew.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Right now I’m working through the Little House series. The simple words, innocent themes, and nostalgic stories never fail to give me the warm fuzzies, and finishing a chunky novel in three days makes me feel like a genius/badass.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I will say though, these books are a lot more racist and sexist than I remember them being. 👎 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are your go-to quick reads? Share ‘em in the comments!

The internet: joking about storming Area 51. Us: learning all about humanity’s real journeys to the stars with some out-of-this-world reads! 
Jeffrey Kluger’s APOLLO 8 is the untold story of the historic first mission to the moon, which closed out one of our darkest years with nearly unimaginable triumph. Alan Stern and David Grinspoon’s CHASING NEW HORIZONS takes you inside the epic first mission to Pluto and beyond. And of course Tom Wolfe’s National Book Award-winning THE RIGHT STUFF is a true classic, the reading adventure of a lifetime. PS- all of these books are steeply on sale in all ebook formats until August 1!

Mega midweek vibes...
.
Once again I went to the library and instead of leaving empty handed, I came out with 12 stories. Twelve.
.
There’s something wrong with me.
.
So now I’m crawling into bed with one of the selection (aptly titled “The Selection”) to read myself to sleep.
.
All-in-all, not a bad way to celebrate reaching mid-week!
.
QOTD: what are you reading? I’ll add it to my tbb list (to be borrowed)!

does anyone else have endless piles upon piles of books about writing? or is that just me?
❊
i love books about writing! i think it’s great to have them as resources when writing—but can’t rely too much on them cause in the end the story has got to come from you, not from another book telling you what to do. i find myself jumping through different resources and never really reading one entirely through—cause not one author has the “success path” set in stone (other than Stephen King...his book is pretty good and my only exception to this statement)

What are you reading this summer? Do you find it easier to read in certain seasons?📚

I almost always make time to read because it's my favorite escape but I haven't done as much reading this summer as I would like.

𝕡𝕣𝕠𝕘𝕣𝕖𝕤𝕤 𝕦𝕡𝕕𝕒𝕥𝕖: please enjoy this lovely photo of some flowers in my garden as i ramble about my week ♡ this week i didn’t write as much as i expected. with my birthday and boyfriend up, i was kept pretty busy. but here are a few things i did do
❊
i plotted almost the entirety of my novel despite the ending (which i think will unravel the more i write). i’m very excited to keep writing—i’m in love with my story and seeing it all unfold is a feeling so great.
❊
i also will be receiving edits from @kayla.m.ware today which i intend on going over tomorrow after i complete my daily writing goals. i am very excited to see what she has said ☻
❊
i’ve been getting sketches back from my illustrator for my characters. they are turning out ~amazing~ and i am so excited to have them finalized in the upcoming weeks. she’s done a fantastic job taking my vision and turning it into a reality.
❊
i reached out to several local bookstores about selling copies of my novel..heard back from all but one saying they would love to stock my book (yay!!) and also offered to host book signings for me in the future (double yay!!).
❊
what did you accomplish this week? let me know below☟

a very nice quote to start of the beautiful day today ☻ i believe that George R. R. Martin is right in saying this—reading opens up so many doors in our lives to worlds and characters those who don’t read will never meet! reading is important, especially when you’re a write. i find that reading inspires me to not only write more, but work on making my prose the best it can be so one day, when it is in your hands, you’ll be just as excited to sit down and read as i am ♡
❊
my current reads are two fabulous books by two even more amazing indie authors i have come to know personally over the past month. i’d highly recommend checking out their books: Rise of the Sparrows by @sarinalangerwriter and A Fallen Hero by @author.sara.a.noe

Are you surprised?
.
The winner of last week's poll on who made the best James Bond was Sean Connery. Contrary to popular belief, he wasn't the first JB. That was David Niven in the first Casino Royale film, but Connery has long been associated as the quintessential Bond. The Bond described by Fleming in his books was no pretty boy, and Connery's rugged looks and rough demeanor won him the role.
.
Personally, I have issues with Connery as a person. He's made some misogynist statements more than once, and I regretted he was the "face" of the Scottish independence movement. There is, however, no questioning his is the face that comes to mind when we hear, "Bond. James Bond."

Love “Rear Window.” It’s funny lines like this mixed with a cute romance and fun mystery that make it such a great film. And I’m loving writing a reboot of it. #writeofpassages

day 12: today I am asked to share a bit about my story setting, which is hard considering all of the places in my novel, SACRED, are made up works of art. each of my cities in my novel are unique in that aspect, but some parts are based off of cities in real life i have seen on the internet. i find that have have drawn a lot of inspiration from old, european cities—specifically those in Switzerland. in the picture above is a photo i drew inspiration from to form my city, Farenworth. the rolling meadows and towering mountains (with low hanging clouds ♡) in the background make for great scenery in any fantasy novel!

unwinding 🌿
-
I’ve noticed that taking a step back has been a huge benefit in my life. I’m at the lake with some family friends this weekend, and figured that I should spend this time enjoying some nature, catching up on reading, and truly being with myself. No blog planning, no book writing, just unwinding in a gorgeous place. 🌲
& last night I went to bed around 9:30, which is implicitly early for me. I noticed that when you DO take a step back, you realize how tired you are. -
How are you spending this weekend? 🌻

#bookmorning ☁️🤷🏼‍♀️☕️
📖
Dzisiaj na pewno skończę czytać „33 razy, mój kochany”. Książkę czyta się lekko, jest przyjemna, choć smutna, ale coś czuję, że skończy się pozytywnym akcentem.
📖
Miłego dnia Kochani 💞
Ja dziś mykam do fryzjera, może to jakoś poprawi mi humor. A co ciekawego Wy dziś porabiacie?

Marjan Kamali, “The Stationery Store”
This poignant little jewel box of a novel explores an all-consuming young love set against the political and cultural turmoil of 1953 Tehran. Dreamy Roya, who loves to read and cook, and revolutionary Bahman, “the boy who wants to change the world,” are brought together by their love of the poetry of Rumi and the matchmaking of the proprietor, Mr. Fakhri, at his neighborhood shop, The Stationery Store. On the eve of their wedding, they are torn asunder by political upheaval and violence. This beautifully written tale of transcendent love, alternates between the besotted 17-year-old Roya and the now 77-year-old Roya, long married to dependable, stolid Walter in New England, and a chance encounter that reunites her with Bahman. @marjankamali7

Excerpt from “The Fun House,” the next book in my “Contemporary Reboot Series.”
-
-
Patrick paced over the bullpen floor. Everyone had been called in and were tracking down different leads trying to find Shea, but it was useless. Her captor had obviously been planning this for awhile—no tip from a hotline would help. -
-
Patrick’s control slipped from his grasp like sand through an hourglass. Every moment she was gone, he felt less and less himself, and more and more overcome by something dark and terrifying. Something that had come out the night Katelyn died, that had taken control so completely he’d attacked anyone trying to come near his wife’s body including the police officers who’d wanted to help him. He’d injured a couple of them, sent them to the hospital. It’d taken half a dozen officers and a taser to get him under control. Before her death he hadn’t known the monster was there—inside him.
-
-
After that night, Patrick tried to leave the monster behind, but every once in awhile he’d turn up. He came last year when Patrick had been betrayed by his best friend, and some time later the monster had led him into a drunken stupor that lasted for months. He’d reared his ugly head again only weeks ago in Thornfield. -
-
Patrick had almost done horrible things each time, but in the end, it was Shea threatening to arrest him, threatening to not let him consult with her, threatening to never talk to him again that had put the monster in check—had tamed him. But now she was gone, and *he* was clawing his way to the front of Patrick’s psyche, making Patrick lose control one grain of sand at a time.
-
-
He couldn’t lose another woman he loved. Not to another psychopath. -
-
The monster growled deep down in Patrick’s throat. Her time was running out faster than his.

day 11: posting another author pic in honor of describing distinguishing features. i think everyone has at least one distinguishing feature—for me, i’ve heard from several that it is my smile. for my characters in my book, i like to give each and every one of them a distinguishing feature. without distinguishing features, what will make them unique to your reader? i think it is very important to have your characters stand apart from others, whether it be their smile, a tattoo, a scar, a fish tail, etc—make ‘em crazy!!

Happy Release Week, @laurenlayneauthor! I can’t wait to read it this weekend.

Some of you know, I’ve been reading the Slight Edge by Jeff Olson.
I highly recommend it. It is an inspiring book that really helps with mindset.
In fact, if you check out the Live I did today, here on IG, you will hear one of the short stories he shares in the book. It’s about 2 🐸! Haha
What is your latest read?

Dragon School book 19:  Starie Night by Sarah K. Wilson

OMG!!! The battle scenes are so intense that you feel like you, yourself are in them, too. I just can’t wrap my mind around this book. On more than one occasion I was worried about how everything would go. I’m just wowed.  Finally on to the final book of this series! I’m excited and nervous to see where it all ends.

I didn't immediately dive into it. Nevertheless, after a couple of chapters the story caught me because of the way it is written. It makes you feel that you are there, highlighting the contrast between braveness and "cowardliness" that two sisters have to face in many incredible ways.
My first WWII-historical read. Beautiful

At my daughter’s 6 am swim practice - the sunrise glints off the water to blind me by both the reflection and the sun itself, but it makes cool shadows on the wall. Anyone else up and about this early in the summer?? .

What are you reading right now?
.
.
I have so. Many. Books. In my TBR pile. That’s not a figure of speech—there is literally a pile of books in my living room. And because I’ve been focusing so much on writing, my reading has slowed to a glacial pace. Today, I carved out 25 minutes to read before working on my Earhart project.
.
.
This particular book is related to a different writing project though. Always researching, I am!
.
.
Here’s hoping you’re reading as fast or as slow as you’d like to be!

I don’t know why I haven’t read this classic by Fitzgerald, but the longer I don’t read it the less inclined I am to reading it 😂
.
My favourite classics aimed at adults are Jane Austen’s and my favourite kids classics are a toss up between Famous Five and the Chronicles of Narnia ❄️

QOTD: What classic haven’t you read (that you really should have)? Or what’s your favourite classic? 😊

☀️Naturally!

I want everyone who owns a garden, or knows someone who does, to pick up this book this summer and read it! With only a small effort, you can change the life for our planet and our animals. Unluckily for me, I am without garden, but this summer I will go to my parents’ house in the country side to open my first bee hotel!

Bzzz 🐝 🌸🌼

how is #nanowrimo coming along for everyone? for me, it has been a mix of writing and days off. july is a hard month for me with the fourth and also my birthday, so writing has been turned into a bit of a challenge. i’ve come up about 6,000 words since the start which is good for me!! i’m happy with the results so far, but i know i can (and will) do better.

I love urban fantasy and fantasy, but my other passion is the historical fiction. Ken Follett is one of my favorite historical fiction authors.
.
The Pillars of the Earth was the first novel by Ken Follett I had read, and I think I was reading it without stop through the night. Then came World Without End and a Column of Fire. His stories and the way they are written are amazing, and I can’t even imagine the amount of work and research that was put into these novels.
.
If you love historical fiction, I would recommend trying Ken Follett’s books.

Who is your favorite author and why?

This sweet guy came and sat under my chair as I was organizing my books. His face is all, “Mom, I think you have enough books.” 🤦🏻‍♀️ My book cart is only ARCs at the moment, and my bookshelves are currently filling up with unread books thanks to recommendations from all of you😂 How do you keep track of your TBR list & ARCs? Goodreads? A paper planner? An excel sheet? If you’re reading anything amazing this weekend, let me know!

day 6: today, i am asked to speak about someone who has inspired me to pursue my passion (aka writing). there have been quite a few people who have inspired me to be the writer i am today, but one in particular that comes to mind....
❊
i’d like to formally thank @elduque1 for being so supportive of me and challenging me to push myself in my writing passion!! not only is he the brains behind @ahoy_comics but he is also a well established author himself. over the years i have received immense amounts of positive (and constructive) feedback from him on my recent works, and i couldn’t be happier!! he’s been such a support and inspiration to me for writing that i don’t think i would be in the places i am today without him. it really does wonders to have someone encouraging you along the way, and for that, i am thankful ☻
❊
also, this is a photo of yet another bookshop in Paris (can you tell i like Paris?) it’s called The Abbey Bookshop and it also happens to be tucked away in a corner behind Notre Dame. Jam packed with books of all genres, it is almost certain you’ll find yourself lost inside it. I think i would have spent hours in there had i not been dragged out...anyways, if you ever find yourself wandering the streets of Paris, take a look inside—you won’t be let down ♡

our favourite one is from The Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. ''It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.'' .

Such an epic book. Loaded with battles, fighting, and shear awesomeness!! Looking forward to seeing how Amel and her friends make it through their next encounter! Anyone considering reading, it is totally worth it. It’s worth every heart-pounding mind-racing second you are reading!

#amreadingnow Sonia Purnell, “A Woman of No Importance: The Untold Story of the American Spy Who Helped Win World War II.” Virginia Hall, a Baltimore socialite, went on to become the only civilian in World War II awarded the Distinguished Service Cross and yet very few people have ever heard of her. This engrossing, fascinating, and meticulously researched book remedies that oversight. In 1926, at the age of 20, she fled the United States and the stifling domestic expectations of her social climbing mother for school in Paris and then Vienna. Stymied in her pursuit of becoming a professional diplomat due to her gender and then later by her disability (the loss of her leg below the knee in a hunting accident in Turkey while clerking for the state department) she relentlessly pursued a backdoor to the diplomatic corps. In 1940, she became an ambulance driver on the front lines in France and in 1941 was recruited into Winston Churchill’s Special Operations Executive (SOE). After years of rejection by the U.S. State Department, it was here at the SOE that her abilities and facility with languages were finally utilized and her natural leadership qualities flourished. She excelled at leading her teams, executing daring and dangerous espionage, sabotage, and subversion behind enemy lines in Nazi-occupied France, including a successful prison outbreak and the bombing of a railway line to strand Nazi troops. She never lost sight of her objective and although her gender or single-minded and sometimes ruthless methods may have alienated some, she commanded a fervent loyalty and respect from her team and some of her military commanders. Virginia never let her gender or disability define her and her perseverance and triumph over adversity is inspiring. A must-read about a heroic American treasure. @purnellsonia

day 5: today, i am asked to share a bit about my MC (main character). the MC in my upcoming novel, SACRED, is a young, 12 year old girl named Beatrice (called Bea by many in the novel). Bea is an aspiring artist. in her free time, she enjoys drawing—a hobby she picked up when her mother went missing 7 years ago in an attempt to better the sketch the police made of her “missing flyer”. Bea is quiet and prefers to stay to herself, except when it comes to her cousin, Reagan, who she moved in with after the incident. when the she is transported to the world of Eslura, Bea is thrown into a leadership role that she dreads—for she wants nothing more than to be continuing her quest to find her mother. at first, she is hesitant—not knowing what to believe is reality or a crazy dream. but as she travels the world in search of a cunning thief, she learns to accept her new role and realize that even though her mother may be gone, she is always beside her
❊
what is your MC’s favorite hobby? let me know below☟

Bea is quiet and prefers to stay to herself, except when it comes to her cousin, Reagan, who she moved in with after the incident. when the she is transported to the world of Eslura, Bea is thrown into a leadership role that she dreads—for she wants nothing more than to be continuing her quest to find her mother. at first, she is hesitant—not knowing what to believe is reality or a crazy dream. but as she travels the world in search of a cunning thief, she learns to accept her new role and realize that even though her mother may be gone, she is always beside her ❊ what is your MC’s favorite hobby? let me know below☟ • • • • • • • • • #indiesareworthit #bookstagram #books #iacadvocate #amreading #amreadingfantasy #amreadingnow #booklover #writersnetwork #booklovers #bibliophile #addictedtobooks #selfpublish #bookaholic #bookworm #indieauthor #indieauthorsofinstagram #bookphotography #highfantasy #goodreads #writersofinsta #ireadeverywhere #fantasy #adventurebook #indieauthormarketers #selfpublishing #womenwhowrite #authorssupportingauthors #manuscript #youngadultbooks
