I’m on a roll with my BOTM books! Finished this cute romance novel over the weekend and on to another right after!  Totally charming with a good balance of romance and angst, this was a great debut! I would’ve liked a bit more development in the actual relationship and maybe a deeper exploration into Emily’s backstory but overall this was an enjoyable read that I zipped through in one sitting and the play-acting Renaissance Fair setting was so fun and unique!  #bookofthemonth #botm #bookofthemonthclub #bookrecommendations #bookreview #bookrecs #alwaysreading #romancenovel #wellmet #debutauthor #spiveys📚club #booksharks #bookbosomed #weekendreads #bookish #readersofig #booksofig #instabookclub #bibliophile #booklover #coverlove #mustread #whatimreading
Happy Columbus Day/Indigenous Peoples’ Day!  Today is a complicated holiday... as I’m half Italian, this day has historically been associated with Italian pride for me. My grandparents came over through Ellis Island with only loose change in their pockets and worked their tails off to make something of themselves. On the one hand, you want to celebrate the Italian heritage and the extraordinary feat that Columbus accomplished, but on the other hand, it’s vital to acknowledge the extraordinary tragedy that befell the native population as a result.  I’m asking bookstagram to give me any recommendations for books by or about indigenous people. I’m always looking to read more diverse voices and stories and figured today would be a good day to ask for some suggestions!  #bookrecs #bookrecommendations #bookstagram #bookbosomed #spiveys📚club #bibliophile #diversereads #alwaysreading #readmorebooks #bookish #bookobsessed #booklover #igreads #booksofinsta #booksofig #columbusday #italianpride #booksharks #readersofig
Bookmail from this week! Bought Dark Places for myself since apparently I haven’t read it yet, then got two more from giveaways!  The Prized Girl is a psychological suspense debut about a murdered pageant queen and her sisters search for answers. This one is out January 2020.  The Liar is a story about a teenage girl telling one lie and how the consequences spiral out of control. This one just came out last month!  What’s everyone else reading this weekend? Can’t wait to dive into all three!  #bookmail #bookmailisthebestmail #goodreadsgiveaway #bookbosomed #alwaysreading #spiveys📚club #bookhoarder #readersofig #bookstagram #booksofinsta #readmorebooks #bookish #bibliophile #booklover #booksharks #newbooks #advancedreaderscopy #igreads #whatimreading
The other day, I saw the new title reveal for Riley Sager’s book next year and it got me thinking about my auto-buy authors so I decided to make a stack! I’m happy to see that I have a fairly diverse stack of different genres too!  QOTD: Which authors are on your auto-buy list?  #bookrecs #bookrecommendations #autobuyauthors #mustreadbooks #mustread #bookbosomed #spiveys📚club #bibliophile #bookhoarder #bookish #bookstack #booksharks #bookphotography #bookspines #bookstagram #alwaysreading #ilovebooks #botm #instareading #booksofig #igreads #readersofig #readmorebooks
✨Happy Friday!  Here’s my stack of books that I had to buy immediately but I’m intimidated to read, either because they’re ridiculously long or almost universally loved... I’m not going to ask if there’s any I should read because I know that’s most of them😂so instead, are there any that you didn’t like?  Since I already managed to hit my Goodreads goal, my goal for the rest of the year is to make a dent in this pile!  #bookstack #booksharks #bookbosomed #toberead #tbrpile #tbrpost #bookrecs #bookcommunity #bookspines #spiveys📚club #mustreadbooks #mustread #bibliophile #bookworm #bookish #bookphotography #alwaysreading #readmorebooks #igreads #booksofinsta #booksofig #hardcoverbooks #bookhoarder #booknerd
Need bookstagram’s thoughts on this one... I’ve gotten used to the writing style which is very purple prose-esque and I really like the plot but Juliette is annoying the crap out of me! I find her so melodramatic that I’m wondering if I’ve aged past a certain part of the YA field.  Can anyone tell me if there’s any character growth coming from her? I’m tempted to give up but there’s still a lot to like in this series!  #bookrecs #bookbosomed #spiveys📚club #yafantasy #fantasyseries #unravelme #shattermeseries #alwaysreading #currentread #whatimreading #readmorebooks #bibliophile #bookish #bookstagram #bookphotography #booksharks #coverlove #bookcover #dystopianbooks #taherehmafi

Went to the dentist first thing this morning then I had to swing by the Goodwill around the corner... Haven’t been in a while so I may have gone a bit overboard!

#currentread  This story is an outlandish version of a parents worst nightmare, a kidnapping pyramid scheme if you will. The book’s strength is the originality of the story but so far it feels very weak on the character development side.  I’ve finished part one and I’ve heard part two is a bit of a drag so I’ve been putting it off a bit... anyone else read this and have any thoughts?  #currentlyreading #whatimreading #alwaysreading #ilovebooks #booksbooksbooks #bookbosomed #spiveys📚club #booksharks #bookcover #bookphotography #readmorebooks #thrillerbooks #thrillerreads #octoberreads #bookstagram #booknerd #bookcommunity #igreaders #instabook #booksofinsta #bookish #bibliophile

I always put off my wrap ups to the first day of the next month just in case I finish the current book I’m reading, so here’s a mini review of a book I read over the weekend instead!  This was my second book from Walker and definitely my favorite of the two! I don’t normally like books that tell versus show, but this was a really good version of that type of storytelling as well as a good use of the unreliable narrator trope with main character Cass.  The mystery kept me guessing and while the middle got a bit slow, I thought the payoff in the end made it worth it!  This was a solid ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for me and will definitely continue to read Walker’s future books!  #emmainthenight #wendywalker #mysterybooks #thrillerbooks #bookbosomed #botm #bookofthemonth #bookofthemonthclub #flatlaybooks #bookcover #bookphotography #bookstagram #booksharks #bibliophile #bookish #booknerd #alwaysreading #septemberreads #spiveys📚club #igreads #booksofinsta #readersofig #booksilove #bookmarks
✨Book Review  This is my fourth from CoHo and probably my second least favorite for a couple reasons but there was still a lot to like! Although they were young in age, the dialogue felt really unnatural and unrealistic both for their age and in general. I thought some of the stereotypes she was pushing for male romantic lead were really over the top and stilted and at times misogynistic i.e he only has a shot at her because she’s insecure, etc.  I thought the story itself was really interesting but it’s also so self-contained that the big twist that the book announces on the back cover was fairly obvious. I didn’t dislike it but ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 is the most I can give even if certain parts were emotional and angsty in the best way.  Some of my actual photography making a cameo in the background... I love taking photos and it’s a big part of why I love bookstagram, beside my love of books of course!  Anyone else have any artsy hobbies?  #bookrecs #bookreview #november9 #colleenhoover #newadultbooks #spiveys📚club #bookbosomed #booksharks #alwaysreading #justread #paperbacks #igreads #instabook #booksofinsta #bibliophile #bookish #romancereads #coverlove #whatimreading #bookcommunity #bookcover #bookphotography

{ @booksparks #partner }  Witch lovers and bookstagram parents, this one’s for you! Filled with magic and spells, ghosts, and even Norse Gods, this was a really fun read for younger readers (and young at heart readers!) and a great follow-up to the first one in the series, The Blue Witch. The Rubicus Prophecy is out on October 15th! Swipe to see the adorable package this came in too!  Synopsis:  Abigail has just started her second year at the Tarkana Witch Academy and is already up to her ears studying for Horrid Hexes and Awful Alchemy! Worse, Endera’s malevolent spellbook has its hooks in her, whispering in her ear to use its dark magic. Meanwhile, the entire school is talking about the Rubicus Prophecy; a sign has arrived that the chosen witchling is among them, the one who will one day break Odin’s curse over them. When an Orkadian warship arrives carrying troubling news, Abigail and her friend Hugo are swept into a new mystery after a young boy from the ship, Robert Barconian, asks for their help retrieving a missing item.  #therubicusprophecy #alaneadamspartner #youngreaders #bookrecs #middlegradebooks #witchbooks #magicstories #flatlaybooks #bookphotography #bookcommunity #bookish #bibliophile #booknerd #alwaysreading #ilovebooks #readmorebooks #littlereaders #bookstagram #instabookclub #igreaders #bookbosomed #spiveys📚club #witches #witchesoforkney
My current read Thirteen, and the 11 BOTM books I still haven’t read!  Loving Thirteen and I’d love to have two back to back great reads, so let me know which one I should pick up next!  #botm #bookofthemonth #bookofthemonthclub #bookbosomed #spiveys📚club #thrillerbooks #bookrecs #currentread #currentlyreading #whatimreading #ilovebooks #booknerd #bookporn #bookphotography #bookstack #igreads #instareads #bookstagram #bookcommunity #booksofinsta #bookish #bibliophile #alwaysreading #readmorebooks
✨Book Review - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5  I was fully planning on reading Thirteen next, but as I went to pick it up, this cover just caught my eye and I couldn’t help myself. I started Thirteen as soon as I finished this one last night though!  I really enjoyed January as a protagonist. She’s spunky but not some infallible heroine who can do no wrong. She did read a tad younger than the 17 years she was supposed to be, at least until she was by herself. The story itself was inventive, magical, at times dark, all of which I really liked.  The problem was I disliked the parts of the story that didn’t involve her. It’s interspersed with excerpts from a book she found, basically a biography, about someone who also used the Doors. Because the writing style changed and it was about characters we were introduced to in a biographical style, I just couldn’t connect with them as well. Once their stories merged, it was much easier to get through, so the second half was much better for me.  What did everyone else read this weekend?  #bookrecs #bookreview #botm #bookofthemonthclub #yafantasy #bookcover #beautifulcover #bibliophile #bookish #bookbosomed #spiveys📚club #alwaysreading #justread #flatlaybooks #whatimreading #ilovebooks #igreads #instabooks #bookstagram #bookphotography #booksofinsta #bookcommunity
