Title: What You Did

CW/TW: Sexual assault .
.
📖Description: A vicious assault. A devastating accusation. Who should she trust, her husband or her best friend? It was supposed to be the perfect reunion: six university friends together again after twenty years. Host Ali finally has the life she always wanted, a career she can be proud of and a wonderful family with her college boyfriend, now husband. But that night her best friend makes an accusation so shocking that nothing will ever be the same again. When Karen staggers in from the garden, bleeding and traumatised, she claims that she has been assaulted—by Ali’s husband, Mike. Ali must make a split-second decision: who should she believe? Her horrified husband, or her best friend? With Mike offering a very different version of events, Ali knows one of them is lying—but which? And why? When the ensuing chaos forces her to re-examine the golden era the group shared at university, Ali realises there are darker memories too. Memories that have lain dormant for decades. Memories someone would kill to protect.
.
.
🗣Opinion: This is a July Kindle First read selection. This story immediately reminded me of a darker more complex Big Chill. Sadly, none of the characters were likable and every plot twist was terribly predictable. .

This book is like ice cream- down in one sitting. 🍦 I love a good Jane Austen retelling and this one is just delightful.

The Illusionist’s Apprentice by Kristy Cambron — Not all illusions happen on the stage. 🌹
.
I was browsing my TBR cart and thought this would make a fun entry for the #hatformyread challenge hosted by @ahatforeveryread and @nurse_bookie 🎩 .
.

Synopsis: Harry Houdini's one-time apprentice holds fantastic secrets about the greatest illusionist in the world. But someone wants to claim them . . . or silence her before she can reveal them on her own.

Boston, 1926. Jenny "Wren" Lockhart is a bold eccentric--even for a female vaudevillian. As notorious for her inherited wealth and gentleman's dress as she is for her unsavory upbringing in the back halls of a vaudeville theater, Wren lives in a world that challenges all manner of conventions.

In the months following Houdini's death, Wren is drawn into a web of mystery surrounding a spiritualist by the name of Horace Stapleton, a man defamed by Houdini's ardent debunking of fraudulent mystics in the years leading up to his death. But in a public illusion that goes terribly wrong, one man is dead and another stands charged with his murder. Though he's known as one of her teacher's greatest critics, Wren must decide to become the one thing she never wanted to be: Stapleton's defender.

Forced to team up with the newly formed FBI, Wren races against time and an unknown enemy, all to prove the innocence of a hated man. Layered with mystery, illusion, and the artistry of the Jazz Age's bygone vaudeville era, The Illusionist's Apprentice is a journey through love and loss and the underpinnings of faith on each life's stage.

Just finished reading I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo and this book was absolutely precious. 
Yes it had a lot of the typical rom com formula with a happy ending but isn’t that what we want to enjoy during the summer?
I though the way the author incorporates k-drama into the story was hilarious and quite lovely. Such a fun, sweet story. . .

Currently reading: Just Kids by Patti Smith

It’s prose that reads like poetry.
America in the 50s, rock and roll, art.
I know there’s a lot more to come but I already love it.

Helloooo from the ocean! 👋🏻 I may stay here forever, just FYI.  The only downfall is I left all my books back in Washington 😂
.
🌊 QotD: If you could leave on a vacation to anywhere right now where would you go?!
.
I have been eyeing @burningbrightcandleco forever and finally grabbed their Ari & Dante candle and ohhh my!  It’s amazing! 😍 As I’m writing this I just remembered they have new City of Brass candles (someone finally making all our dreams come true 🙌🏻😭😍), so I’ll be buying those as soon as I post this 😂
.
Okay, that’s all friends!  I hope your Monday was short and sweet!

Went to the library again today. I consistently have way too many library books out, but that never stops me from getting more.

Oh the light that books bring :) ⠀
⠀
QOTD: What’s a book/series that helped you through a hard time or made you see the world a bit differently? ⠀
⠀
For me, A Woman is No Man really brought a different perspective. Highly recommend. ⠀
⠀
And the books that helped me through many hard times were the Harry Potter series, which I bet many book sluts can relate to 🤗

Audiobook vs physical copy. Which do you prefer?
.
I tend to prefer nonfiction books on audio and fiction books in their natural form. I love listening to inspiring or educational books on my commute. My bestie @sati_yogi_sarah gifted me You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero and I’ve been alternating between reading and highlighting the physical copy and listening to the audio on my drive. And yes, I count audiobooks as books! Reading should be nonjudgmental, whether you read a paperback, on a digital device, or listen in your car or during your workouts.

Truly no better way to end Monday night than listening to one of my all time fave narrators 🙌🏽 reading along while I listen to the audiobook on Scribd since this was one of my June Book Of The Month picks 🖤 I heard there’s one amazing grandma in this one & I could use a read that’ll make me reminisce on my own 🙏🏽the food mention/recipes are definitely a plus ☺️

Colorful #tbr 🌈 My kryptonite is a beautiful book spine; 10/10 I will purchase a pretty book, and this method generally actually!! I’ve read some fantastic books that I exclusively judged by their covers. Fingers crossed that the insides of these beauties match their fabulous outsides 🤩

Are you a cover whore like me?! I cannot, and frankly will not, leave a beautiful book behind 🤷🏼‍♀️

Canon Alberic's Scrapbook. 'O Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad'. An Episode of Cathedral History. A Warning to the Curious. M. R. James is considered the finest ghost story writer England has ever produced, and the thirty plus stories in this collection are the proof. Wordsworth, 1992.

I NEVER LOVED YOUR MIND is about teenagers and the heartbreak and the unfairness of it all...set against the backdrop of the hippy 70s when it was all about love—even the parts that were distinctly cruel because it was all about love. An interesting coincidence that I stumbled upon this Zindel book in a used bookstore in #Dubai: Dewey Daniels is coming of age in a hospital right when I was going through the my own teenage confusion with girls and hospitals. I pulled it off the shelf recently and the writing is still solid and visual, so good that I could almost smell the "teen spirit" among the pages. Pick this one up if you find it on paperback. That cover artwork is incredibly composed. And the writing still has the power to transport you all the way back there, when everything was fresh, mysterious and difficult. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

BOOK REVIEW 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5⠀
⠀
Break out the popcorn and settle in because you are not going to be able to put this one down. This book was so cute, I absolutely loved it!⠀
⠀
The skinny: ⠀
⠀
This book is told from the POV of our two leads - Laurie and Jack. Laurie sees Jack for the first time through the window of a bus and for the brief second they make eye contact. But Jack never gets on the bus, and Laurie never gets off. From that brief connection, Laurie cant seem to get him off of her mind, so she and her best friend scour London in hopes that she might find him. Not to give any spoilers, but when she does finally find him, its not the way she had hoped.⠀
⠀
This book follows both Laurie and Jack over a 10 year period and is oh sooo GOOD!⠀
⠀
Sizzle: This romance is super clean🧼. No steamy scenes or anything like that, just a sweet story that has one of the cutest endings I have read in a long time!⠀
⠀
If you are a lover of love stories, this one is a MUST read! It’s a lighthearted romance that has you turning page after page wondering when it will finally be the time for these two. It has sort of a “Sleepless in Seattle” or “You’ve Got Mail” feel to it in my opinion. ❤️ ⠀
⠀
Read Again Worthy? YESSS!!! This one is in my favorites pile!⠀

I feel bad for giving a memoir about time in an Iranian prison a bad review but that's where we are. It was all him. I hope he's not as horrible in person as he comes off to be in the book. The part that really stuck with me is he's at trial trying to get his freedom back, yet he's more worried about mocking the female lawyer for her mustache. #book52 #book52of2019 #prisoner #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booklover #readerlife #bookworm #bookaddict #printrovert #bibliophile #ilovebooks #ilovereading #booknerd #readingisfun #readallthebooks #readinggoal #goodreads #bookarelife #readabook #bookdragon #readingmakesmehappy #igreads #nonfiction #librarybook #readersofinstagram #instareader #idratherbereading

Have you ever read any James Baldwin book? If so, what was it?⠀
⠀
I only half read half listened to the audio book of The Fire Next Time and I enjoyed it even though I remember I didn’t agree with him on everything. ⠀
⠀
I started If Bale Street Could Talk yesterday and I feel like it’s gonna be on my 2019 favorites 🙊 Though I am so busy this month so I’ll probably take my time reading it🤷🏻‍♀️

Q: What's your favorite mental health rep in a book?
.
"Broken people don't hide from their monsters. Broken people let themselves be eaten." - Eliza and Her Monsters by Fancesca Zappia
.
Out of all the fandom related books I've read, I think Eliza and Her Monsters is one that is close to my heart. I relate to Eliza and her relationship with the online community, and I understand how it can be a sort of anchor in life when you don't want to deal with the real world. I can also relate to her anxiety. I relate to her and her story a lot. .
For those that don't know, Eliza and Her Monsters is the story of Eliza who is the creator of a popular webcomic, Monstrous Sea, and lives her life primarily online. She's found a home there and has no desire to enjoy the real world. Eliza meets a new student, Wallace, who writes fanfiction for her webcomic and befriends him without revealing who she is. With her newfound friendship, she decides maybe real life relationships aren't so bad. But when the secret world she's created becomes public, everything Eliza has built starts crumbling down.

Let’s talk about companies with great customer service! I got a subscription to @pageonebooks as part of my Mother’s Day Present. For my July box, I got a copy of Before We Left Cuba which I happened to be reading already. I reached out to Page One and they promptly sent me a replacement book and told me to pass the other one on!

I just got the replacement book today and it’s Jane Eyre which I have not read yet and have been meaning to ☺️ (I know, I’m living under a rock). Thank you @pageonebooks!

What do I write,
What do I say,
It was a low energy blah kind of day. -
-
With a bounce in my step
and a smile plastered on,
I got through it with thoughts of books and my PJ’s on. -
-
🌸🌸🌸🌸 It was definitely a Monday. I wrote this at work. Just a bit of fun to lighten my day. -
I wish I could step into this photo. How about you?
-
Peace, love, and happy reading. -

Today I realized that having a bunch of snow globes around my books isn’t a good idea after one broke and soaked a lot of my books. I want to cry lolololololol

My 10 year old had a football athletic trial yesterday. After standing for ½ hour in the cold I took myself off for an hour to Fratelli Fresh. It was happy hour so I had a lovely hour reading with a glass of wine before heading back out to the 12 degree C night. Jeeves is the best companion in this situation!

I would love to say that I got a good chunk of this book finished relaxing in the sun.

Instead I am soaking wet and have a yard full of balloon pieces 🤷🏻‍♀️ What does your Monday look like?

📒 REVIEW 📒 (Thanks to @celadonbooks for the gift, out July 23rd.) We Love Anderson Cooper, by R. L. Maizes - I give it ⭐⭐⭐⭐🌠 (4.5) outta 5 stars, with a side of real life highs and lows. 
THIS BOOK IS NOT ABOUT ANDERSON COOPER! The words we love Anderson Cooper are four words in ONE sentence in ONE story. There - I needed you to know that. Okay? Okay then. Tattoos, dogs, a sofa; laughter, tears, love, and angst - these are just some of the subjects and emotions packed into these eleven short stories. From a two-page story of ultimate resiliency to a twenty-page story of abject loss, R. L. Maizes has written a beautiful collection of gems that jump off the page and into your heart. Not a fan of short stories? Please trust me and give this beauty a try. You can read a story between books, or on a short trip, or waiting in your car, or when you need a little something something before bed. We Love Anderson Cooper will bring joy, sorrow, whimsy, and a bit of magic into your reading life. What a great collection of contemporary short stories! 📒☕ .

[ENG] 🐑 Some pictures of my annotations on The Wild Sheep Chase by Haruki Murakami 🐑⁣
⁣
"Speaking frankly and speaking the truth are two different things entirely. Honesty is to truth as prow is to stern. Honesty ap- pears first and truth appears last. The interval between varies direct proportion to the size of ship. With anything of size, truth takes a long time in coming."⁣
⁣
I want to remind you all that I’m hosting with my friend @lobnaboukadi a #readalong of The Rat Series by Haruki Murakami and that we have a lovely group chat where we would love to have you too for discussing this amazing book and share the read. I’m really enjoying it so far. ⁣

"Hablar con sinceridad y decir la verdad son, sin embargo, cuestiones distintas. La relación entre sinceridad y verdad se parece a la de la proa y el timón de una embarcación. Primero surge la sinceridad, y luego, la verdad. Ese lapsus temporal está en proporción directa al tamaño de la embarcación. Es difícil que surja la verdad de cosas inmensas."⁣

Quiero recordaros que estoy organizando con mi amiga Lobna una lectura conjunta de la serie de la rata de Haruki Murakami y que tenemos un grupo de chat maravilloso en el que nos encantaría tenerte a ti también para hablar sobre este increíble libro y compartir la lectura.

Week 2 - Marriage of Convenience.
•
I absolutely adored @Elizabethhoytauthor ‘s whole Maiden Lane series.... so of course out of 12 books I was sure I could get a marriage of convenience rec!😁😁😁
•
🧡Lord of Darkness🧡 is the story of a marriage of convenience made where the parties then live separate lives... until the wife decides she wants a baby.
...Of course both parties don’t really even know each other so many secrets are revealed on their path to finding their HEA. ❤️
•
Have you read the Maiden Lane series? What’s your favourite book? Mine shifts between a few but today I’m going with Duke is Sin.❤️

4.5 ⭐️’s to The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
••⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After reading Truly Devious I absolutely had to pick up The Vanishing Stair. Truly Devious ended on a cliffhanger that made for a great start for the next novel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the most part, I really enjoyed this book. I loved stepping back into the mystery of Ellingham Academy and seeing Stevie figure everything out. We find out what went down on the night of the kidnappings and where Ellie is. The plot and mystery in this book is so much more than that- shocking things happen that I do not want to spoil.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The only thing I didn’t like about the book was the romance between Stevie and David. It’s cringy and unnecessary. Stevie is a strong character that doesn’t need a love interest- the story as a whole doesn’t need a romantic plot! It would’ve been a much better story without. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ultimately the romance lowered my overall enjoyment and rating of this book. I’m a bit scared the next book will have more romance which might ruin the story for me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

What a deeply engaging book this was for me! Perspective felt like the theme of this book, as the two main characters find themselves ostracized for different reasons, their senior year of high school. Things they'd believed about themselves and others slowly begin to unravel from their new vantage point. There's a lot of brokenness and hard things here. Lots of inner conflicts and difficult, moral choices to make for these flawed characters. I couldn't help but root for them.

B+ for me.

Trigger warning: Suicide attempt, bullying, abuse, talk of abortion, some sexual content; send me a DM if you have questions about any of it.

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ✨ I sometimes winder if I’ve overdosed on domestic noir, but I trust @annebogel and this was the only one on her summer reading guide, so I went for it. I actually think it was less noir and more family dynamics gone haywire, although there is a murder. This book was well-written and engaging and I flew through it - perfect for summer. I deducted half a star because I didn’t like the ending, even though I knew it was coming for for literally the whole book. 🤷‍♀️ Readers, man. So illogical with their rating systems. #summerstooshort #idratherbereading #mamalisareads2019

Just got The Gilded Wolves and it's definitely on my TBR. I've never read anything by @roshanichokshi, so I am excited to do so!

I love reading books by authors whose work I've never read before, because their writing style is always so different than those I am familiar with. It's fun to switch it up!

Q: Do you have a favorite author, and why? I know this is a hard one, because they are all so amazing!

A: I would have to say that at this point my favorite author is Sarah J Maas. I absolutely fell in love with he ACOTAR series, specifically ACOMAF (swoon!). I can't wait for Crescent City and to see that she's done this time. 🖤

I have seen this book around quite a bit, but I didn’t want to pay $40 since all I wanted to do was tally up what I’ve read and plan to read. I will never follow a list saying I MUST read/watch something, because as I slipped through there were some titles popping up that I have absolutely zero interest in. Like, sorry, but I’m not going to read five Austen novels. It’s just not happening. Anyway, I found a copy this weekend at @weebookinn and I was so happy to finally take on this little project!
.
🍃Green: on my owned TBR (47)
💧Blue: on my “to buy” list (4)
💮Light pink: DNF’d (14)
🌺Dark pink: read (40)
.
That’s 99 books – nearly 10% of the list that I apparently need to read. I’m okay with skipping out on the other 900. I am interested to see where this book is after the next revision (this edition is the 2nd revision, I believe). I always find a few more books to add to my TBR when I read these lists 😊
.
How do you feel about "must read/see/do" lists?

Anyway, I found a copy this weekend at @weebookinn and I was so happy to finally take on this little project! . 🍃Green: on my owned TBR (47) 💧Blue: on my “to buy” list (4) 💮Light pink: DNF’d (14) 🌺Dark pink: read (40) . That’s 99 books – nearly 10% of the list that I apparently need to read. I’m okay with skipping out on the other 900. I am interested to see where this book is after the next revision (this edition is the 2nd revision, I believe). I always find a few more books to add to my TBR when I read these lists 😊 . How do you feel about "must read/see/do" lists? . . #bookstagram#booknerd #bookworm#bookporn #bookish #igreads#booklove #readersofig#bookobsessed #bookaddict#bibliophile#readingisfundamental#fortheloveofreading #readmore#readmorebooks#idratherbereading #1001booksyoumustreadbeforeyoudie #booklists
I was tagged by the fab @emmas.biblio.treasures to spell my #hometowninbooks 
I wanted to use only books from my ‘to read’ pile and actually I struggled to spell Bray, where I live and where I’m from. Then I thought about spelling my county, which is Wicklow, but that’s even harder!! In the end I went with my country, Ireland..... so it’s #mycountryinbooks 😉

🌱 It's a new week, guys! What does this week have in store for you?⁣
⁣
🛫 I'm finishing up packing for my trip to Denver! I'm flying out for a conference tomorrow morning, but driving to my friend's house outside of Washington, DC tonight. ⁣
⁣
My friend Christina @babbling_books_ tagged me for her Throwback Week! An awesome idea where we share nostalgia of books, shows, etc. from our childhoods.⁣
⁣
🌈 I'm a 90s baby, so The Powerpuff Girls began in the prime of my Saturday morning cartoon phase. I loved watching Mighty Morphin Power Rangers with my brother, but when the first episode of TPG aired in 1998 I was hooked. I loved seeing a trio of girls save the world without sacficing their individual personalities. I identified most with Bubbles, of course 💁🏼‍♀️⁣
⁣
⚡️ Harry Potter is undoubtedly a nostalgia factory for me. I connected with so many characters like Hermione, Luna, and Hagrid. But the fantastic beasts were where the series really shined. I was obsessed with Norbert the baby dragon and sobbed when I thought Buckbeak was done for.⁣
⁣
🐉 That little purple dragon is my boy Spyro. I never owned Spyro the Dragon BUT my brother had a demo disc for PlayStation 1 that included a demo of Spyro. I played that same few levels more times than I care to admit 🙈⁣
⁣
👁 Last, but not least, some of the best from A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket.  I've spoken about these before, but they definitely made my childhood a little bit more miserable. ⁣
⁣

I’m heading along to the local book club that started up near me today (though my train home has been cancelled which is not ideal!) and I am super nervous about walking into a room not knowing anyone, but I am looking forward to meeting some more bookworms! I’ve never actually been in a book club before so it’ll be a completely new experience! 
The author/writer I’d love to meet for #cuddleupwithjuly would be Dolly Alderton (if I can’t go back in time to meet Austen or the Brontes!). I love her wisdom and humour on The High Low and think her writing really captures the difficult, messy but meaningful moments in life and I’d love to get an insight into her writing process! I was lucky enough to see her speak at a festival last year and can’t wait for her first fiction book to come out!

My books came in!! 📚😆
I jumped on the Kickstarter bandwagon to record Jill Williamson’s The Blood of Kings trilogy into audiobooks (which was a rousing success), and one of the reward levels was a limited edition hard cover set of the trilogy. 📚 I couldn’t pass that up! 
I loved the first book and am stoked 🔥 to now have such beautiful copies of them ALL. 
Thank you so much for sharing your stories with us, Jill!

Oh, the irony. Reading a copy of I’d Rather Be Reading from the library. It’s due today and I can’t renew it because someone has a hold on it. This is the chapter I’m on. 😆

It’s very unusual for me to read more than one book at a time and right now I’m reading 3 at once! Do you like reading more than one book at a time? 🤔

When reading a series, do you read any connected short stories or novellas too?
⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯
Happy book birthday to @KerriManiscalco's #BecomingTheDarkPrince! This novella following Thomas Cresswell falls between books 3 and 4 of the STALKING JACK THE RIPPER series and is available on eBook (and only $0.99 too!). I can't wait to read it!
⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯
The SJTR series is one of my favorites in YA and also one of very few non-fantasy series I follow closely.

More often than not, I don't read extra short stories or novellas for book series. Nor do I bother with deleted scenes, etc. But there are exceptions and I'll definitely be reading Becoming the Dark Prince! While I believe it was said that you don't need to read it before starting book 4, I want all the extra details going into that last book.

Let me know if you read novellas/short stories in the comments, or if BtDP is on your TBR!

Rereading The Terror as an alternative to the scorching heat this week!

I was intrigued to hear that researchers only recently found the two historic ships that make up this wonderful read. And Dan Simmons wasn’t too far off on some of his theories in the plot, including where the ships became stuck in the ice! Don’t worry, no spoilers here—you learn that on page one!

I’m always drawn to books that submerge me in a completely different world. Dan Simmons’s The Terror does just that with a more traditional writing style and blend of genres.

Let me just say this: when was the last time you were caught up in historic explorers being hunted by something else on the ice? 🥶
