QOTD: What were your best bargain book buys ever?

9th August 2018:
#FaveEditions for #bookqueensaug18
#bookstawarriorsaug18
πŸ’™
I love what little @barnesandnoble leatherbound collectors edition I have, my Puffin in Blooms and last but not least, my exquisitely illustrated @foliosociety!
πŸ’™
QOTD: What were your best bargain book buys ever?
AOTD: I got my Alice in Wonderland Puffin in Bloom and B&N editions all at a bargain sale for a steal!! Legit, less than $1. So I consider myself really lucky to have found these gems.

QOTD: What colour of books do you own the least?
πŸ’œ
8th August 2018:
#PinkBooks for #bookqueensaug18
#SeriesorStandalone for #bookstawarriorsaug18
πŸ’œ
The amount of pink books I own are seriously dismal as you can see from my post. And between series and standalone, I much definitely prefer standalones. Although I do admit, I do tend to want more of the characters from standalone books.
πŸ’œ
QOTD: What colour of books do you own the least?
AOTD: Mine is pink and yellow.

#FavSuperheroOrVillain for #bookqueensaug18
#SuperheroVsSwashbuckler for #bookstawarriorsaug18
πŸ’™
I really love Wonder Woman and StarLord from Guardians of the Galaxy. He''s sort of a space swashbuckler/privateer before he became the leader of GotG. I love his humor and his taste in music.
.
Btw, I am loving my @owlcrate Bookworm and Proud mason jar!! It's one of my fave items received in my box subs.
πŸ’™
QOTD: Name the most evil villain you love to hate (in books or movies).
AOTD: Probably King Joffrey Baratheon or Lord Ramsay Bolton.

QOTD: What is the weirdest/funniest thing you have used/seen other people use as a bookmark?
.
6th August 2018:
#ICantSitandReadWithout for #bookqueensaug18
#MapMonday for #bookstawarriorsaug18
.
I definitely can't sit and read without a bookmark although anything and everything can be used as a bookmark. Receipts are the easiest and most common ones I use. To be honest, I hardly ever use a proper bookmark.
.
Maps from Furyborn and City of Brass.
.
QOTD: What is the weirdest/funniest thing you have used/seen other people use as a bookmark?
AOTD: I've used my son's baby sock before as a bookmark because the other pair always kept going missing. So I'll use the one side as my bookmark until I find the missing side.

QOTD: Which fictional character would you want as your sister?
.
5th August 2018:
Fave Sisters #bookqueensaug18
Fave sister or like a sister #bookstawarriorsaug18
.
My fave fictional sisters are definitely the March sisters from The Little Women. Even though yes, little Amy was kinda annoying but the youngest is supposed to be a little bratty, right? Just like my baby sister.
.
Swipe left to see my non fictional fave sisters! I'm the middle sister and I don't know what I would do without my Cheetah sisters. I can't remember why we called ourselves that. It must've been my baby sister's idea. πŸ˜‹
.
QOTD: Which fictional character would you want as your sister?
AOTD: I'd go for Nina Zenik. Coz she's badass, funny, real and we can go on waffle dates!

QOTD: What book/series gave you an epic book hangover?
.
Hey guys! I totally missed out on yesterday's prompt, so here is me playing catch up!

4th August 2018: Strong Women #StackSaturday for #bookqueensaug18
Epic book hangover #bookstawarriorsaug18
.
QOTD: What book/series gave you an epic book hangover?
AOTD: I had quite a book hangover after I finished reading the Six of Crows duology!

QOTD: What is your favorite book to movie adaptation?
.
3rd August 2018: #bookqueensaug18 Multiple Editions
#bookstawarriorsaug18 Favorite Movie Adaptation
.
I chose to go with Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet for this prompt. I love all my unique editions. The first is my Signature Shakespeare R+J edition with gorgeous illustrations and paper cutouts. The second is my @pulptheclassics edition and the third is the Classics Unfolded Retold In Pictures.
.
Besides Macbeth, this is probably the only Shakespeare I've read front to back without a study guide. Most probably because when I was 15, my sister @ratusyura and I were sooooo obsessed with the movie adaptation, that on a trip to Sydney, we made our dad pay for the paytowatch movie in our hotel room and we watched it in loop. And we could recite the movie word for word. πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚
.
This is one of my mom's favourite classics as well and she just didn't get our obsession with the modern R+J (hellooo superhot Leo), so she made us watch the Olivia Hussey and Leonard Whiting's 1968 version of Romeo and Juliet. I still preferred the Leo and Claire version because.. yes hot Leo, but it also had an awesome soundtrack. Kissing You by Des'ree, anyone???
.
In retrospect, it was probably not one of the best movie adaptations ever made by far, but hey, it appealed to us girls and made me collect Romeo and Juliet. So that's a good thing, right?
.
QOTD: What is your favorite book to movie adaptation?
AOTD: Now, probably, I'd say most of Stephen King's films, The Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption, Misery, Stand by Me.. all pretty brilliant movies, I daresay.

2nd August, 2018: Combine two fictional worlds! #bookstawarriorsaug18
❀
If I had to choose, I would love for Nikolai/Sturmhond from the Grisha trilogy to crossover with Capt Alucard from the Darker Shades of Magic series. Especially in the final book, A Conjuring of Light. Imagine these two suave privateers coming together. That would be really amazing!
❀
Which two fictional worlds would you like to combine?

QOTD: Do you have music on while you're reading?
.
2nd August 2018: #BooksWithMusic I went for Eleanor and Park 'coz I liked how Park helped Eleanor with all the crap she was going through with music and comics. I thought this was a really touching story and I loved the ambiguity of the ending.

QOTD: Do you have music on while you're reading?
AOTD: No.. I just can't. Too much background noise. I prefer reading in a quiet environment.

QOTD: What is high up in your TBR pile this month?
❀
Hello my beautiful people!!! I am back! Well, I hope I'm back. I have been struggling to take pics the whole of last month. I was in a big bookstagram slump but because the bookstagram community has been super supportive and encouraging, everyone's been saying just take a pic, hate it or love it, just.. Post. It. Up! (I still don't love this photo).
❀
Sometimes we can be super hard on ourselves with everything else going on in our lives and I'm glad to have friends in this community who help me bounce back! SARAH LOU, @thisdreamofmine we had a deal, and yes, I posted!!
❀
I am also hoping joining photo challenges would help me out of this slump. So if you're looking to join any, go check out the challenges from the Book Queens and BookstaWarriors.

QOTD: Would you rather read a complete series or read each book as it is released?
_______________________
πŸ’œ
Hi guys! I'm still in a picture-taking-slump so this is one of the photos I kept for stock from a few weeks back! I am good on the reading front, though. I checked my Goodreads and according to my personal annual challenge, I have read 92 books thus far. Not too shabby considering my goal was 52 for this year.
πŸ’œ
But I still haven't finished my 2018 @popsugar reading challenge. I've still got more prompts left to complete.
πŸ’œ
QOTD: Would you rather read a complete series or read each book as it is released?
AOTD: I normally prefer reading series that are complete before purchasing them so I can binge read them and not have to wait for what happens next. However, there are some exceptions.. some new releases are just too hard to resist!
πŸ’œ
Anyways, wish me luck on getting over my picture taking slump! I hope I have more stock photos left in my phone to use.

Hey guys! I felt I've gone too long without posting but I'm in such a slump right now and I don't feel like taking pics at all lately so I had to dig deep in my stock photos and I found this one from back in May that I haven't posted yet. This was @owlcrate 's May box! I have since finished reading Sky In The Deep and I really enjoyed it. This is an exclusive edition with sky blue shiny lettering and silver axe instead of the regular gold. (For those of you wondering what the difference is).
.
QOTD: How do you get over a Bookstagram posting slump??
.
Anyways, I have been tagged by both @joyfulreader and @booksandmermaids91 on the same #bookstagramhabits tag. So here goes: .
πŸ“· Phone camera or pro camera: I would like to use my pro camera but my laptop has died on me and I won't be replacing it anytime soon so there's no way for me to transfer the photos. So only phone camera for now.
πŸ“· Props or simplistic: I prefer using props although I have a limited supply of 'em. Haha.
πŸ“· Light or dark theme: Light theme but I might just change it up 'coz I think my theme is what's making me feel currently uninspired.
πŸ“· Natural or lamp light: Natural all the way, baby!
.
I tag... YOU. YES, YOU, READING THIS RIGHT NOW!
