Are you a fan of readathons? ✨ I feel like I have quite a few readathon related updates! It’s funny because I didn’t used to like them, and now I LOVE them! So much so...
.
.

I’m co-hosting a readathon with @beigepages as part of #mythtakereads!! I have a whole video announcement to explain bingo board challenges, point scoring systems and the lot, so head to the link in my bio for that! 🙌🏻 we’re both so so excited about this, so please do join us if you can! In August I’m also planning on taking part in the FemmeFanTale readathon hosted by @jeansthoughts and @jill.scott.9 too, so I’m super excited to build a TBR from all the prompts both from ours and theirs! .
.
As for the readathon I’m taking part in NOW, I’m about to finish my FIFTH book for @the.book.junkie.trials! I’ve been reading so quickly lately and I’m THRILLED. Let’s hope the momentum keeps up for August! .
.
Are you taking part in any readathons at the minute? Are you planning to take part in any for August? Let me know! .

It’s back! @jill.scott.9 and I are hosting the second round of the#femmefantale readathon this August from the 18th-25th 🎉. This readathon is all about reading fantasy written by women and I certainly can’t wait to chat to you all in the lead up to and during the readathon about these books. If you like that sort of thing there is also a bingo chart 😉 and we will be announcing reading sprints closer to the time. Watch the video linked in my bio for more information. Will you be participating? Are you already considering what to read? #readathon #booktube #fantasy #womenwriters #readwomen

How did I do on my TBR fir March? I read 17 books total. I also participated in 5 readathons!Of the books I planned to read from March 1st, I stopped reading On the Come Up because I just wasn't in the right mindset, I'll read that over the summer. And I'm in the middle of both Night Circus and Children of Bood and Bone. I'm enjoying them both. How did you do in March?

A late #femmefantale conclusion:
I didn’t check off all the boxes and I didn’t read all of the books I’d hoped. However, I did read my first manga since high school, got caught up on my favorite novella series by @gailcarriger, and fell head over heels in love with reading again. Honestly, I’m happy with the amount I read and the books I absorbed. Thanks @jeansthoughts for hosting the perfect readathon for me!

Lost Boy by Christina Henry 3.5⭐️
Half Bad by Sally Green 3⭐️

I didn't get my last book finished for #femmefantale because I was too busy finishing this gorgeous sample knit for @carolinaspinner 🧡 I loved working on this version of @dreareneeknits #theshiftcowl out of #twistfiberstudio sport. Be sure to check it out in her booth if you're at @carolinafiberfest later this month!

PS: Swipe for baby modeling 😉
PPS: The Poppy War. So good!

#femmefantale wrap up! I was able to read five books for this readathon. I had:
One 5 🌟 book
One 4 🌟 book
Two three 🌟 books
One two 🌟 book
For an average of 3.4 🌟. Not my greatest readathon if I have to say so myself. But I was able to read 198 pages per day, which considering how long it took me to read the Girl in the Tower, is quite impressive. I was unable to read two books, so I will hopefully get to them once I get back from Seattle! Next readathon is Buzzword a thon, which starts on the 18th.

The Grownup - Gillian Flynn ⭐⭐⭐
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After 'Gone Girl' fame, I decided to read more books by Gillian Flynn. Fast forward few months and this one was already on my shelf. 
I picked it up recently to read during my commute as it was hardly 70 pages.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I won't be discussing much about the plot here because it's better to dive into such books without knowing much about it. So to put it short, we follow an unnamed narrator, a young woman, who is struggling to survive and ends up conning others as a "psychic" and later gets caught up in a job involving a malevolent Victorian mansion.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Despite, of a short story The Grownup is still a dark and terrifying tale. But what intrigued me more was the main protagonist and her character development. I did feel the ending was a bit flat compared to rest of the plot build-up, but Gillian has done justice to the little amount of pages it had.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a taste of Flynn's work and won't be annoyed by an ending which would leave you wondering what to believe.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q // What book ending surprised you this year?

Another grand yarn from Kate Milford. Slightly smaller in scope and yet tying several of her stories together. Loved spending more time with Lucy and Liao Bluecrowne. #bookworm #femmefantale #readingwomenchallenge #middlegradebooks #nagspeake

About to finish my last book for the #FemmeFanTale readathon! 📖

About to finish my last book for the #FemmeFanTale readathon! 📖 What are you currently reading?
"Seated in the council room of the Assassin's Keep, Celaena Sardothien leaned back in her chair."
I have finished both Furyborn and the Girl in the Tower. I gave Furyborn a 3 🌟, I thought it was pretty good. I absolutely despised The Girl in the Tower. I gave it a generous 2 🌟. I will not be continuing on in the series.
Now I am onto my novella. Technically I only need to read one of these stories and I'll be set, but I will try to read it all and hopefully end on a high note.

Ouf... So I managed to finished the novella Binti Home before the end of #femmefantale readathon! Loved it, understood more this sequel than the first one. In the end, two novels and a novella for the readathon. Not great, but not too bad considering I work full time and study full time and it’s starting to smell like exam period... 🤓 And ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for all three books, so great reading week 👍🏻

Did you participate in the readathon? If so, how did you do?!?! Any great discoveries?

Strange the Dreamer is a first book in a duology,and this is the second book I read from her  the first one was Daughter of smoke and Bones and loved it. Laini Taylor has an amazing imagination that creates beautiful and haunting imagery with a poetic , purple and lyrical language and very well fleshed out characters that feel mythological and archetypical .This novel has a middle eastern flare that  reminds me of Arabian Nights because of mystical creatures in dessertic cities. Though I loved this book I can't give it  a perfect score because it drags in parts a  bit from halfway point through the book  for the sake of recreating the purpleish language that doesn't move the plot and makes it feel overwritten.
.🦋8.5/10🦋
El Soñador Desconocido  es el primer libro de una bilogía , y este es el segundo libro que leí de ella, el primero fue Hija de Humo y Huesos  que me encantó. Laini Taylor tiene una imaginación asombrosa que crea imágenes bellas ,inquietantes e hipnóticas con un lenguaje poético, púrpura y lírico. Los  personajes están bien desarrollados y se sienten mitológicos y arquetípicos. Esta novela me recuerda el mediooriente específicamente los  cuentos "De las mil y una noches "  por el hecho que trata de  criaturas místicas en ciudades que se encuentran enmedio del desierto. Aunque me encantó este libro, no puedo darle una puntuación perfecta  porque  tiene problemas de ritmo se siente  poco lento ya al pasar la mitad  y  sobre escrito ya que a ese punto utiliza mucho  lenguaje púrpura que no mueve la trama .

Managed to finish only these two books of the 5 I had for my #femmefantale readathon TBR . With these two books I  read 972 pages from the 2nd- of March to the 10th and for someone that generally doesn't read that fast it  is a fair amount of pages in a short amount of time .And the most important thing I enjoyed them both .
.
The amount of challenges  I completed were 5 by reading these 2 books:
- Queer (LGBTQI) author/ Historical / Adult  fantasy:
Una magia más oscura (Darker shade of magic) - Victoria Schwab
- YA / Romance :Strange the Dreamer - Laini Taylor

This beast of a book is my home for the foreseeable future. I’m about a third of the way in to The Priory of the Orange Tree. Gotta say: I hate the audiobook but it’s the only way I’ll be finishing this in a reasonable timeframe. But what’s not to love in queendoms and dragons? 🐉👸🏽

I haven’t picked it up yet today because my morning was taken up by my library book sale (check out my stories for what I found) and then seeing Captain Marvel, so all in all you could say my spirits are riding high 😊

I'm not sure when the last time was that this happened, but... I'm not actually reading anything 😱 Yesterday I finished Inkmistress & my audio of Jack of Hearts and I haven't decided what to start next. Do you go straight from one read to the next or do you like to have a break? ..
I'm still doing the #femmefantale readathon so I'm trying to find something that fits the last few prompts and my awkward mood reading tendencies.

Today is the last day of #femmefantale readathon! 'Wildwood Dancing' by Juliet Marillier was one of my reads for this week and I thought that it was absolutely gorgeous, definitely a convert to this author.
It is about five sisters in medieval Transylvania who find a way into a fay other realm and partaaaaaayy- although their innocent entertainments are soon threatened by a patriarchal cousin and dangerous night folk. I don't read fantasy genre fiction very often so it was very rewarding to expand my reading. Will be picking up all of Marillier's other books. 🌜🌜🌜 🕸🕸🕸

Alles Gute zum Weltfrauentag!

Genau die richtige Zeit, um weiter für den #FemmeFanTale zu lesen: Fantasyromane, die von Frauen geschrieben wurden.

Heute und in den kommenden Tagen habe ich THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE von Katherine Arden eingeplant.

Was lest ihr gerade?

Self-care is the best care.
.
.
I've been having a slightly difficult time mentally of late. I'm struggling a bit with where I fit in, how I view myself, and my relationship with the house I live in. I've been charging round attempting to fix things and forgetting about me.
.
.
So this #internationalwomensday I'm taking some time for me. I'm relaxing with some badass female authors for #femmefantale, I'm waiting patiently for Priory to drop on the door mat, I'm going out for dinner with a great housemate, and I'm going to watch #CaptainMarvel.
.
.
.
Sometimes recharging your own batteries is the best thing to do. It's not that you need fixing, you just need a rest and recharge.

I’ve decided to participate in the #femmefantale readathon in the hopes of branching out in my reading and making more diverse choices. I’ve linked to a list of my choices in my blog 📚and how I think they’ll fit. I’ve already started!

Favorite book of the year, it has entered my pantheon. World building, rage, injustice, nonchalant gender inclusivity, power to start and stop earthquakes, repressive regimes, communities inside giant geodes, fractured timelines, motherhood, violence. Also fantastic writing. #bookworm #femmefantale #readthisbook

After a morning or errands, I'm settling down to read for the #femmefantale
readathon. 📚

I swear I did nothing to the saturation! This romper really is a fluorescent aqua colour.

HAPPY #worldbookday2019 !! It’s our time to shine bookworms 😂🙌🏻 How are you celebrating? I’ve spent my day...planning an essay about books...yay? 🙃 BUT I’ll be spending my evening reading as much as possible - especially since the #FemmeFanTale readathon is still in progress! 
But how about some more celebrating? On my Twitter, I’m hosting a giveaway for State of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury, one of my favourite YA fantasy reads! 🎉 The second book is released today, so if you want to get on board with this series, be sure to head over to my Twitter this weekend for a chance to win the first book! (Link in bio). AND FINALLY - I thought I’d share my favourite books! The books pictured above won my heart and soul, and if (god forbid) I ever find myself wondering why books are so important, I’ll be looking at this bunch to remind me. How many of these have you read? What’s YOUR favourite book? Share the bookish love down below this world book day 💚👇🏻

"The queen stopped screaming just after midnight."
I have finished The Night Circus! I gave it a 3 out of 5 🌟. I can see why people like it. It's just not my cup of tea. I have still not finished The Girl in the Tower. I read about 50 pages more yesterday, I will finish it by Sunday, but I cannot stand it. 😑
Now onto my queer book for the readathon. I've heard both stands: it is a queer book, it isn't a queer book. I will tell you after I'm done what my verdict is. If it isn't a queer book, The Night Circus will suffice for this challenge and I guess I'll have read this book for the hell of it!

“Aren't bookshops strange, sitting there with quiet menace, as if they were just a shop and not an entry point to 30,000 different universes?” - @mattzhaig 
Happy World Book Day!! I’m spending mine reading books for the #femmefantale readathon and I’m having the best time. I’ve been to a fair few universes myself this week and I love it. 💕

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5. #katherinearden has something to say here. I went into this just expecting a cute YA with Russian influences. This is that, but so much more.  It's a community struggling to reconcile their historic beliefs with the rules of the Catholic church, and an exploration of the impact this has on various aspects of their lives. It's a statement about how important hope is. .

Book two of #femmefantale which you still have time to join in on! If you want more info check out @jeansthoughts YouTube channel 😘This book by #EmmaCarroll was really brilliant, I’m not normally a big fan of novels that deal with historical fact but this one is such an ode of love to Frankenstein I couldn’t resist! Coincidently this book also has an unusual narrator for YA books, as the main character is visually impaired and our first protagonist is a black ex-slave, I think it’s brilliant that these fantasy writers are bringing such diversity to their work 🙌 probably a three star book as there was bits I was like ‘oh really?’ But over all a really well thought through novel, also how beautiful is this cover?! 😯😍 PD: a drawing of a Manor House in the background, in the foreground is a girl in a purple cape looking at the house in a storm, above the house is a huge star and the name of the novel ‘Strange Star’ ⭐️********************************* #strangestar #book #books #bookstagram #fantasy #womenwriters #femme #star #science #frankenstien #maryshelly #lordbyron #victorshelley #percyshelley #1800s #fiction #visuallyimpaired #disability #ethnicity #ya #narrative #narrativevoice #electricity #lightning 🌠

Its day 4 of the #femmefantale readathon and I’ve read three books so far and am part way through two others! Really chuffed with my progress so far and I’m loving getting involved.💕 Currently about 140 pages into Tower or Thorns by Juliet Marillier, and 130 pages into The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh. I’m loving both for different reasons so I’m hoping I can finish them both before the readathon ends. Can I do it?

⚡️Trail of Lightning: Book Review⚡️
•
I don’t read a ton of urban fantasy anymore, but this debut by Rebecca Roanhorse ticks all the right boxes: A kickass lead in Maggie Hoskie, fun side characters and a really interesting world with mysteries to solve/monsters to kill. It’s a fast-paced story that accomplishes a lot in its short length (9 hours on audio with indigenous narrator @tanisparenteau, who did a great job bringing the drama and the emotion to life). I listened to it as part of the #femmefantale readathon, focusing on all women-authored fantasy stories.
•
At times the world building was a bit info-dump heavy, but that’s hard to get around when you have to set up a post-apocalyptic world at the same time as the Navajo legends come to life. And the “twists” or reveals in the story were fairly obvious from the beginning, which made Maggie seem a bit naive. So, a few quibbles but an enjoyable listen overall. It was great to see a Native culture at the center of a post-apocalyptic world, which is typically erased by mainstream futurist stories.
•
But there are a few things to know before going into this book. While Roanhorse is Native, she’s not Navajo (her husband is and she lived on the reservation for years). While some in the Navajo community have been supportive of the book and don’t find any issues (it was read by Navajo sensitivity readers), some more traditional members have expressed unease. Some of the concerns include misrepresentation of spiritual practices (one of the weapons she uses in the story is only ever used in sacred rituals), the heavy use of violence in connection with the spiritual, and revealing cultural information that many would prefer stay within the tribe. (HT to @read.rewind for sharing the article “Concerns about Roanhorse's TRAIL OF LIGHTNING from AICL, which also links to other resources)
•
Ultimately I ended up deciding to read this book and will probably pick up its sequels because overall I want to encourage the publishing industry to pick up more indigenous authors’ work. But I will continue to do so carefully, so that these stories don’t remain a commodified and bastardized form of indigenous cultures.

So far I'm enjoying  Girls of Paper and Fire for the #femmefantale readathon. It's been so long since I've immersed myself in a world that isn't this one. I can't even remeber the last time I read fantasty!

Hello! 😍

How are you guys? How has your day been? 😍

I am slowly going through my #femmefantale Tbr and currently reading The Binding by Bridget Collins. It's been very confusing so far but the writing is atmospheric, I must say. 😍

Hopefully I end up loving it. What about you? Are you reading anything at the moment? 😍

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Blameless, Gail Carriger. Second book finished for the #femmefantale readathon! I love the Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger. Entertaining, light, funny.... sometimes that’s just what you need! Have you read any of the Tarabotti books?

"The circus arrives without warning."
I have not finished The Girl in the Tower, but I do not think it is better than the first like others think they do, so I am moving onto the next book. This covers the stand alone novel. I will probably finish the Girl in the Tower before the end of the readathon.

Do you read multiple books at the same time? I was about halfway through Half Bad and just fancied a flavour of something else. Sticking to the #femmefantale and picking up my first Helen Oyeyemi was a most excellent choice!

🌟🌟🌟🌟/5. Okay, so the 'romance' in here is annoying, and the main character's honestly not my favorite. But everything else about this book made me fly through it. It's a book about a book, so A+ there 😉, and it's such a unique world that I just want to hang out in! .

Do you know when a normal Tuesday is not a normal Tuesday? When pancake day falls in the middle of #femmefantale!!
.

I'm preparing myself for all the pancakes later by squeezing in some fantastic female fantasy books!! I absolutely loved #ThePrioryoftheOrangeTree, it's going to be hard to find a better book of 2019, and I'm rediscovering some of my favourite author's works. .
.
What better way to make a fantasy filled afternoon better than by adding some @lacunacandleco magic? Legend smells like magic and mayhem and is the perfect fantasy accompaniment! Check out all of their amazing scents now, and don't forget to use the street team code 'Team10' when you buy for 10% off!
