“The stronger bonds between us made separation difficult as in a little uncomfortable. My plan: to stretch the bond like sugar-taffy in the hopes I’d lose the I-always-want-to-be-around-you thing. So far, totally ineffective.” #bookdragon #drae #dragon #author #insidethebook #authorsofinstagram  #bookstagram #ya #yalit  #authorlife #booksofinstagram #yareads #booklife #readingaddiction #bookqueen #booksrockmyworld #newbooktuesday #yafantasy #yalovin #totalbooknerd #alwaysreading #wildadventuresmay19 #bookqueensmay19 #ireadya #bookravensmay19 #readsharelove #bookishpeepsies #readsharelovemay19 #mayinbooks #fangirlsbookishmay
I love sci-fi. Its my second favourite genre after high fantasy. And I have heard a lot about Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufmann's other series so I decided to go ahead and read their newest book, since usually authors improve with time so I thought if I like this one there's a chance I'll like their other books. I was so incredibly disappointed. To start with, I was expecting a book about 6 incompetent misfits who somehow come together, probably uncover a secret by accident and have to go on and save the universe. That's how the book was marketed at least. I did not expect the team to be highly trained and prepared for space travel, missions, diplomacy and saving the world, which means I was off to a bad start. The book ended up not being my cup ot tea. I suspect it might have been aimed at younger readers but from posts on bookstagram I was left with the impression it appealed to many people my age and older. I'll sum up my thoughts here . What I did not like: - the writing felt a bit forced. I felt like the authors explained many things instead of showing us (when it came to personalities, relationships etc) - I did not feel like the characters behaved adequately in some situations - it read a bit more like fantasy than sci-fi . What I liked: - Fin - Finian - we got an explanation as to why the soldiers are young adults instead of older more mature people - the idea of a team where each member has a specific set of skills they excel at appeals to me - Did I mention I loved Fin? . What dis you think of the book? . This photo completes the following bookstagram challenges: 🌸 #bookqueensmay19 - space travel 🌸 #bookravensmay19 - set in the future 🌸 #rfabjune19 - this was an anticipated relase 🌸 #allthebooksjune19 - favourite sidekick - Fin was great. Not my favourite sodekick ever, but I definitely enjoyed his character the most . #bookstagram #books #beautifulbooks #cozyreading #cozyreads #bookworm #bookaddict #booksofinstagram #currentlyreading #booklove
Do you write reviews of the books you read? 💕 . I just finished Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo and the book was fantastic! I am about to sit down and pour my thoughts into my book journal. I always find it helps me process my opinions and when writing a review with a pen on paper I feel like I'm more likely to go back and reflect on my thoughts later .

repost @komunitaspembacabuku 📚📖#KomunitasPembacaBuku @bacaanchan -  Prelude karya Sam Umar (Teen Noura, 2014) . Bicara tentang musik klasik, ada satu nama yang benar-benar tidak bisa diabaikan. Dialah Johann Sebastian Bach, komposer kenamaan Zaman Barok asal Jerman yang telah menghasilkan lebih dari 1000 karya musik, dan ide-idenya tentang musik terus menginspirasi komposer zaman sekarang. . Prelude karya Sam Umar ini mengangkat tema Festival Bach, sebuah festival musik tahunan di Leipzig untuk mengenang sang komposer kenamaan tersebut. . Bercerita tentang Tina, mahasiswi Indonesia yang kuliah musik di Leipzig, Jerman. Mendekati event Festival Bach, pemain cello muda ini memutuskan untuk ambil bagian dalam festival bergengsi itu dengan mengikuti audisi. Karena ini adalah Festival Bach, karya yang dimainkan tentu adalah karya Bach. Karya Bach yang Tina mainkan untuk audisi adalah Prelude dari Cello Suite No.1. Tak disangka, ternyata karya ini menyimpan rahasia tentang masa lalu Tina dan orang-orang terdekatnya. . Dibalut dengan latar Festival Bach, novel ini memberi pengetahuan tidak hanya tentang musik klasik, tapi tentunya tentang kisah hidup Bach juga. Penjabaran latar dan sejarahnya juga cukup detil, jadi bisa membayangkan dengan jelas. Ini adalah salah satu novel musikal paling berbobot yang pernah kubaca. . Alurnya menurutku mudah ditebak. Penjabarannya juga, walaupun detil dan jelas, tapi penyampaiannya seperti buku pelajaran. Tidak terlalu asyik, cenderung membosankan. . Syukurlah novel ini diakhiri dengan ending yang realistis. Riset penulis yang begitu mumpuni untuk menghadirkan kisah ini juga patut diacungi jempol. Applause! :) . 3/5 . #judulbuku1kata #tantanganjuni2019 #tantanganmembacabuku #igbookreview #currentreads #readeverywhere #bookpost #booksworthreading #popbooks #bookqueensmay19 #deliaowens #biblophile #wegetliterary #bookflatlay #fortheloveofbooks #bookster #currentread #readersofinsta #toberead #bookobsessed #bookishcanadians #readmore

. Finally bought. Frikkin excited. . 불렛저널, 조금씩 알아보다가 오리지널 책을 드디어 주문. 👍🏻👊🏻💪🏻 . . . #repost @sarahschapter with @get_repost ・・・ Gifted | Book no.6 is 2019 was The Bullet Journal Method by Ryder Carroll ⭐️⭐️⭐️ - I’ve been using the bullet journal system of planning since the beginning of 2016 and it’s honestly changed the way I organise my life. So I was excited to read a book all about it from the creator of the bullet journal system. Whilst this book did make me rethink how I’m using my bullet journal in some ways and had some really great exercises for goal setting, it did leave me wondering a little who it’s for. It does give beginners a step by step guide to setting up a bullet journal (which is unnecessary for those who’ve already been using the system) but also spends a huge chunk of time looking at why we plan and the philosophy behind the bullet journal etc (which might not interest beginners) but doesn’t quite go deep enough into these topics for experienced bullet journallers to really feel like they got something out of it. So I’m not quite sure who this book is aimed at. I enjoyed it nonetheless and I’m all about supporting the creator of this system - so if that’s something you’re interested in too then check it out! - Thanks to @4thestatebooks for the review copy! - #sarahschapterreviews - 📚 Book and flowers #midsummerlibrarymay19 #rainbowsmay19 #bookqueensmay19 📚 #flatlayfriday #bulletjournaling #불렛저널 #불렛저널다이어리 #저널링 #journal #journey #bookstagram #goodbooks #bought #formyself

May Wrap Up!  I read 10 books this month and almost finished the audiobook I started in April (I told you I’m slow! 🙈) not pictured here is the Flat Share and Emergency Contact (which is currently in Portugal with my housemate haha). * I had a few great reads this month and a few disappointing ones, but I discovered a new author in Lois McMaster Bujold and a new love of sci fi books which previously I had almost no interest in. So all in all, a good reading month! * * - The Flat Share - 5⭐️ - The Darkest Part of the Forest- 5⭐️ - Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating-5⭐️ - The Vor Game (Young Miles)- 5⭐️ - Emergency Contact - 4⭐️ - The Binding - 4⭐️ - Field Notes on Love - 3⭐️ - The Near Witch - 3⭐️ - Aurora Rising - 2⭐️ - A Curse Dark as Gold - 2⭐️ * * Thanks to @foreverreadingfiction for the flat lay inspo/design I outright copied 🙈😂 * * #aussiebookstagrammer #aussiebookstagram #aussiebookworm #bookstagram #bookworm #flatlay #bookflatlay #monthlywrapup #maywrapup #allthebooksmay19 #bookqueensmay19 #bookravensmay19 #mmsbookishmay19 #mayinbooks19 #maybookstagram19 #amreading #reading #read #starrating
QotD: What was your favorite read from May? . Hi everyone! Sorry I've been MIA lately, but I started a new job and I'm still adjusting my time to do things. Anyways, let's get statistical: . ※ Read 9 books (a total of 1.854 pages), plus 104 pages of my current read. ※ 3 graphic novels, 1 manga, 3 contemporaries, 1 fantasy and 1 thriller. ※ 1 e-arc, 1 e-book, 1 audiobook and 5 physichal books borrowed from the library. . These are the books I read in May: . ● Astronauta: Magnetar - ★★★ ● Gata Garota - ★★★ ● Paper Girls vol. 1 - ★★.✩ ● A Menina do outro lado - ★★★★★ + ♡ ● Nosso outono nada igual - ★★★★★ + ♡ ● O Casamento - ★★★ ● Maresi - ★★★.✩ ● Again, But Better - ★★.✩ ● On the Fence - ★★★.✩ . I now use Scribd for audiobooks, so I don't have a TBR set, but I want to listen to These Witches Don't Burn, and The Hate U Give, You and History is all you left me (for #buzzwordathon). Also, I'm highly anticipating Recursion by Blake Crouch and The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen. I also bought 7 books, including Vicious, Whichwood, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo and Cruel Beauty. Hopefully June will be a better reading month, having a lot of 3 ★'s reads really bummed me 😐. . 📚 Challenges: #allthebooksmay19 and #allthebooksjune19 | #maybookstagram19 and #junebookstagram19 #bookravensmay19 and #bookravensjune19 | #bookqueensmay19 and #bookqueensjune19 #mayinbooks19 and #juneinbooks19 | #whatanovelread .

May's wrap up! This month most certainly did not go as planned, but when will anything ever? Most of the books I read were rereads; I read the Illuminae Files to get ready for Aurora Rising. And then I read Aurora Rising, and listened to the audiobook, which was amazing.  And because we all need a little romance in our lives, The Unhoneymooners, and The Wrath and the Dawn, too. I also left a bunch of books half way read. And I still didn't finish Red Rising, again. One day, I shall finish it.  What books did you read in May?

May wrap-up and Book-Haul! May was a busy book month for me. I read a total of 8 books this month (how?), most of them over 4 stars which is awesome. And I somehow got a total of 11 new books (I had pre-ordered some books and forgotten about it and now I have so many books 🙀). I don’t have all the books I read this month available right now because of moving around, so the books pictured are all the new books I bought this month, three of which I’ve read. List of books read May 2019: ▪️Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ▪️Less ⭐️⭐️ ▪️The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ▪️Hold Still by Nina LaCour ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ▪️Vicious by V.E.

QOTD: Favorite book you read this month? . . As I said I read a lot of great books this month, by my top two out of the eight have got to be Vicious and I Wish You All the Best which was phenomenal! . . #bookqueensmay19 | Wrap-up #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #bookgram #bookworm #books #bibliophile #booklover #booksofinstagram #readersofinstagram #booksofig #igreads #bookworm #bookblogger #bookreader
How did you feel about Game of Thrones ending? 👑  Me personally felt it was too rushed. So the ending, though very possible, didn't seem believable. If Bran had more scenes in the last two seasons that showed him as a possible contender then him being king wouldn't seem so out there. It would have made more sense to make him the master of whispers. Although I really loved that Sansa became Queen in the North, she deserved it. 👑  Within the past year both of these series has come to an end. Though I suppose until George RR Martin releases the final book, Game of Thrones is still ongoing. But I will miss reading Throne of Glass for the first time as well as watching GOT. 👑  #fccrown - where's my throne?!

Just a simple Wrap-Up photo for today! Wasn’t feeling inspired to take pictures but I needed one for the end of the month 🙈 May was absolutely insane. Just moved into our new house, hosted a readalong #bookishreadsacotar & a readathon #dragosaurathon. Was my birthday and a million other things were happening in my life. Surprisingly, though, I read a lot! In total I read 12 things this month (mind you, most were either children’s books or graphic novels - I’m still proud though!) and found some new favourites. It was also the first month of reviewing books from publishers so that was super exciting!

May Reads 🌿 How did you make it out of May? . . . Apparently I was all about sequels and wrapping up series this month which wrecked havoc on my emotional connections with characters!

QOTD: How many books did you read this month? What was your favorite? . . I read 10 books this month! It’s a lot less than usual but that’s expected over the summer because I have a lot more going on over the summer and therefore less time to read! And I felt like I had more 4-star reads than I usually do so that’s awesome!!! . . These are my ratings for the books I read! 📖 Opposite of Always | ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 📖 Legendary (audio reread) | ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 📖 The Devouring Gray | ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 📖 Aurora Rising | ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 📖 Finale | ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 📖 Second Chance Summer (audio reread) | ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 📖 Warcross | ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 📖 Wildcard | ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 📖 The Poison Eaters and Other Stories | ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 📖 The Long Walk (audio) | ⭐️⭐️ . .

How many books did you read in May? . . . Day 31 - May #wrapup 🌸#allthebooksmay19 🌸#bookravensmay19 🌸#fangirlsbookishmay 🌸#bookqueensmay19 🌸#wildadventuresmay19 🌸#bookishthingsandfriends 🌸#readingwhalemay19 . May was a total flop after April (the only amazing reading month I've had so far this year). Just 4 books read in May, and the last one in the nick of time. . 🌸Can You Keep A Secret? - 4.5 out of 5 Stars - Sweet and funny - had me laughing throughout. . 🌸Magical Women - 3.75 out of 5 Stars - Enjoyed this collection of several strange and unusual fantasy short stories, some more than others, but each story was powerful and thought-provoking in its own way. . 🌸Whiskey Beach - 5 out of 5 Stars - Felt so so good to read another wonderful romantic suspense from my favorite author, it was incredible! So intense and engaging throughout! . 🌸Redemption - 4 out of 5 Stars - Just finished this last night and I'm still gathering my thoughts for a proper review but I really enjoyed it, couldn't stop reading till I was done - a lot more investigating, legwork and interviewing witnesses/suspects and quite a bit of action in this one! Makes me want to read the previous books in the series now. . . . Really hoping to pick up the pace somewhat in June though I'm still having a hard time focusing on what I'm reading these days. 🙈 . . . #canyoukeepasecret #magicalwomen #whiskeybeach #redemption #may #booksofinstagram #booksofig #igreads #bookstagrammers #bookstagram #bookish #whatiread #bookster #booklovers #bookstagrammersofindia #indianbookstagrammers #indianbookstagram #readersofindia #readersofig #adultbooks #yareads

I've got 119 pages left in A Gentleman's Murder -- I told myself I'd finish it on the 30th, but I'll have to shoot for June instead. Is your reading still in progress, too? . . 🌵Reading Challenge - May 31 🌵 . . #allthebooksmay19 | #bookravensmay19 | #mayinbooks19 | #bookqueensmay19 | #wildadventuresmay19 | #mayaswellread19 | May #wrapup : I only read 2 books this month -- Turtles All the Way Down and The Corset Diairies. . . SPOILERS AHEAD AT YOUR OWN RISK . .  Turtles All the Way Down (audiobook) - 3.75/5 stars . I loved the realistic representation of mental illness and the portrayal of teenage relationships, but I wasn't crazy about the "missing millionaire" subplot. It's also really great to read when you feel you're alone -- like, no one will understand your intense intrusive thoughts or quirks and ticks that stem from them. I honestly heard Captain Holt screaming "VINDICATION!" in my head during some of those parts. The book may feel dragged out when the romance is being established if you don't like romance. But the ending ties up everything nicely. . . The Corset Diaries - 3.5/5 stars . I had been looking for a light, contemporary romantic read. I liked the premise of the romance -- a reality show about regular, modern day people trying to live in the Victorian era. It blended historical and contemporary fiction, so fans of both genres get the best of both. I wasn't really sold on the chemistry between the male and female leads -- I preferred their interactions with the secondary characters. I can't even remember the ending well, but it is what you'd expect from a contemporary romance novel. . . #bookstagram #bookworm #livesinthelibrary #ilovereading #reading #booksofig #reader #booklove #igreads #bookporn #bookishfeature #igbooks #bookaddicted #bibliophile #ireadya
