Good afternoon friends!! We have been seeing this gorgeous book everywhere and it seems to be one of those books that has drastic mixed reviews! I personally loved it and need more of it ASAP!!!!! 🖤🖤🖤
What’s an unpopular book opinion that you have?
I could not get into the Night Circus 🙈
If you loved The Cruel prince as much as I did you are going to want to check out these gorgeous candles from @littlecrowcandles !! 😍 I love them all but I’m definitely going to need a larger one of the faerie fruit!!! It smells like a crisp apple dessert!!! 😋
"The snow in the mountains was melting and Bunny had been dead for several weeks before we came to understand the gravity of our situation." Not a spoiler, just the fantastic opening line to The Secret History.
I made a huge dent in reading this over the weekend. This is a book that took me a few tries to get into but I'm glad I finally stuck with it. Its such a polarizing book- people seem to love it or hate it! I like reading books like that to see which side of the fence I fall on. What's the last polarizing book you read? #thesecrethistory#donnatartt

#TheRepublicOfItreya map today and it ties in nicely with the release of the title for the new #Nevernight book which is called #Darkdawn. I am a total cover ‘ho when it comes to this series and can’t wait to get my hands on both editions.
So I’m off to Prague on Wednesday for my #DaughterOfSmokeAndBone trip and of course I’ve been hit with the plague. Well it’s a head cold but it feels like the plague. I took a sick day today because I’m afraid of it getting worse so I’m dosing myself and really hoping I’ll be over the worst of it by Wednesday. I’m feeling so sorry for myself. It’s pathetic! 😂
Don’t forget to check out my #Prague giveaway! Closes this Friday. Also keep an eye out for my stories from Wednesday as you might see some of the added prizes I pick up in Prague!
The Hate You Give by @angiethomas was one of those books I read because I’m one of those white people who was 1000% sure I was NOT at all racist. I thought I would read it and proclaim how much I loved it because that would definitely confirm I wasn’t racist. But then a strange thing happened: I saw small parts of myself reflected back in Starr’s eyes. I shook my head in agreement, thinking, “that is so black.” WAIT... WHAT?!? Did I just THINK THAT THOUGHT?!? I believe everyone should be treated equally regardless of race or gender, but this book showed me that there are still stereotypes I think of as being ‘black’. Gangs are one of them. Living in the projects is another. Dealing drugs is another. I even found myself reading some of the dialogue in a stereotypical black voice (the one that’s portrayed in movies, TV shows, on the news). It made me aware that while I’m not racist, there are still areas that I need to improve on. The Hate U Give was the best book I read in 2017. •
❓What’s a book you read that showed you something about yourself you were previously unaware of?
I have the worst luck with giveaways so I usually don’t even enter anymore. Imagine my excitement when I won this beauty and got it in the mail! I can’t wait to dive into it! It’s my first time reading this author, but it sounds so good and that cover 😍😍 Thank you @simplykelina 📚 I’ll be starting this one soon.
What are you all reading this Sunday? I’m finishing up HELLO STRANGER by Lisa Kleypas (yessss stilllllll, not for lack of enjoyment I swear!) and I’ll try to finish up CITYWIDE by Santino Hassell which I’m sort of just meh about. Novellas are hard.
🇩🇪Lest ihr Magazine/ Zeitschriften?✨
Ich lese ab und zu mal welche.. meine neuste Errungenschaft ist die ELLE Decoration. Ich liebe einfach alles rund um Interior und diese Zeitschrift ist einfach perfekt! 😍
Habt ihr Empfehlungen? ☺️

This photo is primarily for the sake of showing you all my bookish pajama pants. You can also see the location/RAW/final of this in my recent blog post!
Hope you're having a comfy day
Showing off my second favourite house today. My Godson turned 11 this week and he is a proud Hufflepuff. I got him some Hufflepuff merchandise which included this gorgeous #woodmark from @inkandwonder.designs and house edition Philosopher’s Stone. He is only 11 and already all over hardbacks. He is definitely related to me. 😂
I love sharing this fandom with him and I didn’t think it possible but I think his Harry Potter love makes me love it even more.
Also, there seriously needs to be a badger emoji. 💛🖤 .
#NovelBeanFebruary day 18: #SockSunday
Good morning lovelies!!! I have been knee deep in freelance the last few days and last night I was in a really good mood, so I figured it was the best time to take on the most difficult set of pages I had to design for the project. Everything was good and I kept thinking it wasn’t as bad as I had remembered it... until my program crashed and I hadn’t saved 😭😭 Thank goodness for Disney movies because singing along with The Lion King was the only thing that got me through doing those pages twice last night!
One character perpetually in a good mood seems to be Lara Jean! I loved listening to to all the boys I’ve loved before on audiobook a couple summers ago. And I have to say this is one of my favorite @flickthewick candles! Both this candle and the book it’s based on completely brighten up my day and make me feel warm and fuzzy all over 😊 You can grab one and use REWIND10 to save 10%
Pro Tip: Don’t ever light a candle this close to the top of your bookshelf... my new shelves now have a pretty noticeable burn mark 🙈
What are some things you do to put yourself in a good mood?
🌙 did you like the selection? and who's your favourite character?
➳ it's my guilty pleasure and I LOVED the series. Would reread them any day (including book 4 and 5). My favourite will always be Maxon Schreave, even though Marlee, Celeste, Mer, Henri and Kile are all close seconds 😋
hey dearies ✨
My parents and I are currently strolling through Berlin and we're now on the way to the best bookstore on earth. I CAN'T WAIT OH MY GOD.
This post is mainly for spreading love for the Selection series and my dear Sabrina who's my dearest Mer. @bees_bookworld 💕
It's also for opening a little discussion because I know the opinions about this series are pretty controversial so I'd be very interested in yours!
Have a beautiful day, dearies 🌞🍀
