CURRENTLY// READING x Genre: Historical Time Travel Romance set during the Titanic Era in Charleston, South Carolina x When was the last time a book took you completely by surprise? x This book right here is why we need to continue sharing our love for all the books.  Jean @bookrampage (bless her lovely soul) shared how much she loved this book.  I looked it up, started it yesterday, and I'm nearly done.  It's taken over my life.... every waking thought of mine.  I got Sona @superbookstash to start it tonight and Alex @mypacificroad you should probably start this too 😘 free on kindle unlimited!!!! x This book makes my heart skip beats.  It leaves me breathless. A shaken mess of feeling.  I need this book like I need air to breathe.  It has a rich atmosphere and leaves me wondering about every dream I've ever had.  This is why reading is a precious gift.  If you like Outlander, you'll love this!  It's not heavy handed on description.  The romance is delicious and it happens beautifully 😫  Gahhhjjj!!!! This ending is going to rip my heart out.  Jean already told me as much!!!! ↬ #starcrossedreaders . . . . #bookstagram #booklion #bookhoarder #bookblog #bookishfeatures #bookaesthetics #bookdragon #epicreads #bookobsessed #booktography #igbooks #2019books #thesurvivingtrace #caliaread #loveforallthebooks #timetravel #historicalromance

"Life is meant to be felt." // Dark Age x I'm feeling quite ecstatic right now.  I'm back in the world of Dark Age and just started my Harry Potter series re-reads (listening to book1 while on my run hence this gorgeous photo)-- (btw Jim Dale is an amazing narrator and I absolutely100% recommend the audiobook). It got me thinking -- how does my favorite childhood series (harry potter) compare to my favorite adult series (red rising)? x Both series shaped my reading interests and raised my standards-- harry potter ignited my passion for reading while red rising reignited this same passion following my post-college reading drought // both authors created my favorite characters ever (sevro, sirius) // both have caused me to scour the internet for fan theories during the wait period between books // both series started off lighter in their own way and gradually became more intense and darker in narrative and plot -- with action and suspense around every turn // Golden Son and Prisoner of Azkaban-- both books in their respective series were two of my favorites because they showed the truth depth of the story being told and I could argue were a turning point in the tone.mood.stakes for the remainder of the series // ravenclaw and howler ✌ that's all I got for now! Let me know your thoughts below on these two series!!!!!! . . ↬ #starcrossedreaders fav adult-childhood book similarities . . . . . #bookstagram #bookhoarder #bookblog #bookishfeatures #bookaesthetics #bookdragon #epicreads #bookobsessed #booktography #igbooks #2019books #booktalk #ireadbooks #autumnphoto #railroads #vscolifestyle

The minute I saw the content warnings, I KNEW my reading experience would forever be changed.  Ryder is the total package!!! I soon went on to fall in love with everything Pen Douglas, Tillie Cole, Amo Jones, S.T. Abby, and recently Monica James! These authors have given the world such a gift!  I'm currently reading Killswitch and it's no surprise that I've fallen in love with Damon!

"I no longer trust stillness.  Stillness is the enemy taking careful aim." -- Dark Age // Pierce Brown __ This book is taking years from my life.  Brown's action scenes are some of my favorite.  He uses a combination of relentless pacing and lyrical quality in his descriptions -- creating vivid, chilling imagery that will play on your emotions. And I'm only on page 107/752 __ Q:  Hrmm how about we do an AMA but make it specific to the Red Rising series.  Ask me ANYTHING you want and I'll answer truthfully (without any spoilers of course) . . .

Book Review | Prince's Gambit by C.S. Pacat __ 5/5 "HOLY SMOKES HIT ME IN THE FACE WITH A BRICK BECAUSE I'M PATHETIC OBSESSED WITH THIS SERIES" STARS __ Like, this sequel legit dug a hole, threw me in, and covered me in flowers.  This book made me feel EVERYTHING.  It was perfect.  The slowest burn EVER EVER EVER and ahhhhh HALLELUJAH!!!!! Remember how I was 'meh' about book one? No? GOOD PLEASE FORGIVE & FORGET THAT.  K. Thanks.  This is still a character driven story and it's outstanding. Goddamnit.  This review has me feeling EVERYTHING as if I just finished it.  The ending WOWOWOW.  I was speechless.  I rarely am.  I was shaking.  I was SHOOK. __ Oh?  Were you looking for an actual review? πŸ˜‚ Well, I can't offer you one this time haha Please accept these FEEELS coming at you full force ---and then pick up and read Captive Prince (book 1 -- read my ACTUAL review on that one a few photos back) I read these with Sona @superbookstash and buddy reading with her is THE ABSOLUTE GREATEST. __ And remember, let's keep loving ALL THE BOOKS!!! like THIS one!! #loveforallthebooks ✌😘πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯
What genre (subgenre) do you want to see more booksta posts featuring? __ THANK YOU to everyone who has welcomed the idea that came from some discussions Rach @rqdavis_ and I had! I'm going through the tag we created -- #loveforallthebooks -- and checking out all those favorites of yours that aren't talked about enough on booksta!  I haven't added any new content to the tag just yet because I'm staying true to my system and continuing to post what I'm currently reading ✌ and well, Dark Age is my prime focus right now!!!! I did add the tag to some recent books I posted about that deserve allllll the love!!!!! We would love to continue seeing everyone sharing at least one book that they normally wouldn't!  I DESPERATELY NEED some Sci Fi / MM Romance recs so please please please post some of your favorites and use the tag!!! I know you're out there! Looking πŸ‘€ at you! __ I am really enjoying taking my photos wherever and whenever I can.  Staying true to my lazy af minimal lifestyle πŸ˜‚ I applaud all of you who can plan ahead and arrange props that's magazine worthy!! My aesthetic is "whatever works with the least amount of effort" and I own that! Anyways...... DARK AGE.  I'm only on page 67/752 and it already feels like I've run a marathon.  I've been panicking since page 38.  I LOVE #grimdragon prompt for today.  It accurately reflects my thought with this book so far: WHAT, PRAY TELL, THE FUCK?!? __ I love this mug that I won in a giveaway!! You can get this mug (and more) in @moonoakalley shop!
"Well, here I am, you deviant bitch.  Here I bloody am." -- Dark Age / Pierce Brown __ Do you have a song that reminds you of a book or series? __ I have many.  Most of my book/song pairings were unofficially declared by myself as the book's anthem however there are many that were shared by a friend.  Months ago, Lucy @the_bookish_astronaut shared with me the following song (see below) and said how it fit Red Rising so well.  I listened and YES YES YES it absolutely does.  It is THE song that I associate with this series now.  I have been listening to it today in between reading Dark Age and it adds that extra element to the experience.  I recommend my fellow Howlers to go give the song a listen and let me know what you think!! I get extremely emotional with the lyrics-- (brb CRYING) Darrow has come a long way from the mines of Lykos. Shit.  It's such an EMOTIONAL SONG for an EMOTIONAL SERIES. _ SONG: By My Side ARTIST: MitiS What if I said I'll fight for you? What if I said I needed you? Would you change your mind? Would you be by my side? What if I said I'm there for you? Go through hell and die for you Would you change your mind? Would you be by my side? __ I'm on CHAPTER 4 of DA.  Darrow just acquired some equipment and I'm wondering WHAT THE HECK he's going to do with it πŸ™ˆ I have my theories but Lucy told me to not even bother πŸ˜‚ That I'll be wrong anyways hahaha 😘 Oh!! This 'Summon the Howlers' bottle is from @dreaminabottle ! Lucy's rep search is STILL OPEN so get your entry in 😊
CURRENTLY READING THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS RIGHT NOW __ If you saw my story from yesterday, you'll know that I MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE gotten spoiled for the THIRD TIME with Dark Age.  My fault.  All my fault.  I can't help but become click happy and read comments that I SHOULD AVOID!!! but I can't.  I can't look away.  Buttttt this potential "spoiler" was a SEVRO SPOILER and that was it.  I will not be spoiled with my favorite character/husband/loveofmylife!!!!!!! __ So I have put all other books to the side and eating/sleeping/carrying this book with me everywhere for the next week because I have had enough procrastinating.  I'm shutting my feelings down and diving in. Head first.  As I told some one you before, there aren't many surprises left in life-- but I will have Dark Age be one of them! Thanks to @the_bookish_astronaut for giving me tough love and to @books_and_rocks & @mayap.firstofhername for laughing at me while telling me how it's going to DESTROY ME and WILL BREAK MY HEART. K.  Thanks guys.  YOU'RE ALL GREAT FRIENDS 🀣🀣🀣 you'll be the first to get all my unfiltered reactions!!!!! Hope you're READY for my crazy to come out 😈😘 __ Still with me?  Dark Age is dark and grim.  I think many people will be surprised when they get to these last three books. Books 1-3 are like children's books compared to Iron Gold and Dark Age. IG was intense, but DA is darker than dark.  I think most people may become surprised by the depth, epicness, darkness that has been created. __ ↬ #starcrossedreaders darker than dark
Ah, mismatched glory. _ I have all the books... waiting to buddy read Godsgrave with Sona @superbookstash and Alex @mypacificroad I think the three of us are actually quite brilliant-- waiting until Darkdawn was released because I hear there's a cliffhanger?? How will I feel at the end of GG?  Will I ugly cry? Throw the book?  Stare at the wall? Immediately go to the interweb to tell the world how shook I have become? Or will I curse out the author and vow to never read another book again? Maybe I'll immediately begun DD no matter the time? __ How's everyone Sunday going? . . .
