Dragonwatch: Master of the Phantom Isle by Brandon Mull, book 3 in the #dragonwatch series 5 of 5 Hearts "Masterful Middle Grade Heroic Fantasy!" "By expanding both the scope of his world and the spheres of his protagonists, Mull has increased the complexity and depth of the series and has written the perfect centerpiece. The final two books promise a grand conclusion not to be missed!"

While you are reading do you ever try and decide who would play the characters for a movie? Or is that just me and my friends. After finishing reading The Nightingale with my IRL friends, we had “fantasy draft” of sorts. We spent most of the night picking who we would have play all the roles for the movie version of The Nightingale. I wish y’all could see the text chain we had. We went back and forth, sending pictures and descriptions and were all cracking up doing it. I think we all decided it may be a new end of book discussion we have. It was hard to pick because we all had images of the characters in our minds while reading. But I think we came up with a pretty solid cast! Swipe to see our choices 👉🏼 Who would you pick to cast in The Nightingale? How did we do? I cannot imagine having to choose a whole cast, choosing the top 10 was hard enough.
Happy Thursday friends!! Tonight I get to meet @jojomoyesofficial and I’m pumped! 🥳🥳 The event is at a church and that will be a first for me. I know I need to get there super early because this event is going to be PACKED. In other news, HOW DID I NOT KNOW that Ann Patchett, author of the new release 𝒯𝒽𝑒 𝒟𝓊𝓉𝒸𝒽 𝐻𝑜𝓊𝓈𝑒, is the owner of @parnassusbooks ?!!! 🤦🏼♀️😱😱 You guys need to tell me these things... Anywho, I finished 𝒯𝒽𝑒 𝒟𝓊𝓉𝒸𝒽 𝐻𝑜𝓊𝓈𝑒 yesterday morning and it was so good! I listened on @audible and @tomhanks is the narrator. My full review is up now on Goodreads and my blog #linkinbio but here is a #minireview 😉 They say the narrator can make or break an audiobook and I definitely agree. I could listen to Tom Hanks all day and I loved that he was the narrator of The Dutch House. He spoke the words with the heart they deserved and emphasized the beauty of this novel. This is my first experience with an Ann Patchett book, and it will definitely not be my last. I saw a couple reviews that mentioned The Dutch House might not be the best book to read first if you are new to Patchett, but I was instantly consumed with the story and all the pain of this family saga. I loved Danny and Maeve even with all of their flaws, and I ended up loathing their stepmom (like any good person would do). Patchett really knows how to move you with her words and characters, and this was a very emotional book. The Dutch House was my first time listening to a fiction book as an audiobook and I absolutely loved my experience with it. The audio is just shy of 10 hours but the minutes pass quickly and Hanks makes for an excellent narrator. If you are into family sagas with beautiful, descriptive words I highly recommend picking this up ASAP! . Song/s the book brought to mind: 100 Years by Five for Fighting •• My rating is ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ / 5 for #bookreviewsbymary 🏩
So last night I started and finished The Perfect Child by Lucinda Berry. First of all... if you have kids or want to have kids, this book is probably not for you. If you have a hard time reading about child abuse, also probably not for you. And SPOILER ALERT... if you have trouble reading about small children who do terrible awful things like kill animals and people? Probably not the book for you. Jesus this book was a hot mess. Definitely no literary masterpiece, but it was a quick and easy, fast-paced read. And if you’re reading this and saying “wow, what an awful person she must be if she wanted to read about those things!” Let me also tell you - the entire plot of the book was so utterly unbelievable that it wasn’t hard for me and my cold black heart to get thru. The abuse aspect of it? Yes. Could be very real. But, the rest of it? Totally not plausible. Anyway. I may read something else by this author because I enjoy a quick little jaunt into madness. Unlike the Chbosky book where I had to descend into madness, unpack my suitcase, suspend reality, and stay there for a week. Yikes. #goodreadschallenge#readallthebooks
The Goode School, in Marchburg, Virginia is not your typical High School. This is an all girls boarding school. Only the daughters of the most richest and influential are accepted in this school. It prepares these girls to get into the best colleges. What the school was NOT prepared for was a new student coming into their doors at the last minute and causing all sorts of chaos. However, this little lad was not just the only one with dark secrets that needed to be hidden. Everyone had their dirty little secret, and one by one it wants to come out. The start of this story grabs you as it starts with a murder, but then it felt like it stretched so long in the middle. It kept on and on with these characters and then it started picking up towards the end. It was a great plot twist ending though. Thank you at Netgalley, publisher and author for this digital ARC in exchange for my honest review. This book is set to publish December 31, 2019. #bookish#bookstagram#bookstagrammer#bookworm#booknerd#books#read#reader#reading#readabook#readallthebooks#ilovereading readersofinstagram #books#book#booksbooksbooks#bookish#bibliophile#booksta#netgalley#ereader#arc#digitalread

Rough day. 😔 So, I bought myself an ✨AH-FREAKING-DORABLE✨ bowl (and a mini one to match!) for only $5 and made myself some Ramen. Now to eat and read in silence. I'm going to end this day well dang it!😉
