Book Blurb:

She started from perfect. A star who shone brighter than the rest.Β 
But then fate took it all away.Β 
Now she's broken.Β 
A beautiful song with a fractured beat.
But I'm still on the rise.Β 
Chasing a dream that she's already left behind.Β If I'm lucky, I can find my redemption in the spotlight.Destiny brought us together.Β Put her in my path.

It started with a road trip. But somewhere along the line, it became a journey from here to there.
Maybe she can help me.
Maybe we can help each other.
Maybe music is enough.
Maybe.

Every story deserves a soundtrack.
And ours is epic.

It's Friday book babes! So that means I get to live vicariously through what everyone is reading this weekend! πŸ™Œ honestly, this book rutt has hit me HARD and there are so many books I SHOULD be reading or want to read and nothing is sticking. I just feel blah about them all 😩😭 For instance, I started The Nightingale the other day and while it had started off really good, the words just seemed to all swim together and I haven't picked it up again 😭😭😭 seriously, this non reading mood is KILLING ME! .
.
.
Anyways, see that gorgeous book mark there? 😍☝️ It's from the @the904store.etsy store and it came in my Outlander mini story box! It has to be one of my all time favourite book marks and I bet I wouldn't be the only one who sings the song whenever I see it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I love Jill's shop and I'm so excited to see what is in the second Outlander story box! πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ .

I Can't believe that today is my very last day of being a rep for @the904store.etsy!! πŸ˜”πŸ˜”πŸ˜­πŸ˜­ I couldn't believe it when Jill chose me to rep for her and I'm SO happy that she took a chance on me because it has been an incredible 2 months. Jill is the nicest person and she creates some of the most amazing bookish items that I've seen in this book community! She now has a costumer for life and I will always rep for her and her beautiful products long after my "rep" months are over! Not to mention, getting to know the other reps in our group and discussing new candle ideas together has been so much fun! Thank you Jill for giving me the opportunity! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

So who here is a fan of disney/fairytale retellings?! πŸ™‹πŸ™‹πŸ™‹ Well I for one can't get enough of them and some of the best I have ever read have been from @marissameyerauthor! Heartless is an Alice in Wonderland retelling of how the queen of hearts came to be her ruthless self and LET. ME. TELL. YOU! I was completley captivated by this retelling and fell head over heels in love for both Catherine and Jest! If you haven't read this story, YOU MUST!! It will literally blow you away, the depth of the world Marissa Meyer created is incredible! .
.
.
Being a rep for @the904store.etsy these last few months has been the most incredible experience and I couldn't believe it when she listened to my suggestion about creating a scent for Catherine and her love of baking and then in turn made a candle that smells like delicious pumpkin pie with a hint of apple spices!! I've always felt that this book deserved a candle and have never actually come across one for ANY of the characters in Heartless. I think Jill did such an incredible job with bringing Catherine to life in this one! 😍
.
.
.
Seriously, Jill has THE most incredible candles, mugs, wine glasses and story boxes in her shop and I have been so honoured to have been a rep for her these last 2 months!πŸ’– My rep code ends on the 31st but if there is something your πŸ‘€in the shop (And how could there not be?) then you still have a few days to use my code CBS10 to save yourself 10% off your order!! .
.
.
P.s. Jill is currently hosting another rep term for August and September so if your interested in applying (And you REALLY should) head over to her shop @the904store.etsy to apply! πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ

Happy hump day my beautiful book worms! So, am I the only one who could care less about this hot weather?! It's humid, hot and sticky and all I want at this point is to wear a sweater, converse and drink a pumpkin spice latte! Is that too much to ask?! I don't want to rush the summer away but maybe if it wasn't so damn humid all the time I wouldn't be complaining!! (πŸ˜’ I'm looking at you mother nature) .
.
.
With all of this talk of fall, I have to tell you guys how much I LOVE my Fall in Stars Hollow candle from @the904store.etsy!! Every time I take a sniff I just want to curl up with a coffee, a blanket and watch reruns of Gilmore Girls! It is absoutley one of the best scents in a fall candle Ever!! If you're a HUGE Gilmore Girls fan and a fall lover like myself, I'm telling you now you need this candle ASAP! And check out her other candles while you're at it, she's added so many new ones in her shop as well as new story boxes!! And don't forget, you can use my code CBS10 to save some πŸ’°πŸ’°πŸ’°!! .

Ok, so I finished this book a week ago and haven't had the energy to post a review until now, while I have some time to myself in the bath tub πŸ˜‚πŸ€· I really really REALLY enjoyed this book! Stella has got to be one of my favourite characters in a book ever! I don't know if It's because I work closely with children who are on the autism spectrum, but everything that Stella deals with in this book just made my heart ache with all sorts of emotions! I think I cried through out the whole entire thing, not because it was sad by any means but I just felt for Stella and a lot of the things she was experiencing. I loved her brutal honesty, I loved her social awkwardness, I loved how deeply she researched something to know more about it and to be able to execute her plans. I loved her and Michael and how Michael felt for her even after he learned about her disability. Michael's honest love for her made me cry the most I think. They are one of the most adorable couples ever and I am going to say their chemistry, seeing as how it starts out, is SMOKIN. FRICKEN. HOT!!! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ HOLY HELL I wanted to jump into the pages and have Michael all to myself!! What a fine specimen he was! .
.
.
Overall, I absolutely adored this book, but I think the ending fell a little flat for me and didn't reflect the first 90% of the book. I don't know, I just found myself losing interest and wish it had played out in a different way. I am going through a HUGE book rutt right now so I think that played a large part in my feelings about the ending, but I just felt a little ... "meh" about it. Definitely a fun, sweet, quirky and steamy romance though! ❀

I've seriously just stared and them and sniffed them all day long since I got them πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ This gorgeous one right here has to be one of my FAVOURITES. It smells like a decadent piece of Vanilla cake and every time I go to my book shelf I get hungry lol! .

Happy Monday book worms! I recently posted about my thrift book shopping experience and decided I would post about another book I found that day! I had my eye on Dream Lake by @lisakleypas on the indigo website for a while, but it was well over 10$ and I just didn't feel like spending the money! Low and behold, I found it at Value Village for 5 bucks! I was one excited lady walking out of that store that day πŸ˜‚ I'm OBSESSED with Lisa Kleypas' historical novels, and have yet to read any of her contemporaries, So I'm looking forward to this one! (I realise it's the 3rd book in a series but oh well, I'll just read out of order!) .

My gorgeous Sassenach mug is from the @the904store.etsy shop and it's one of my most used and loved mugs EVER! Her shop has the most gorgeous bookish items, including candles, and she's recently changed the style of jars they come in and they are BREATHTAKING! Check out her shop yourself for all of your bookish desires and use my code CBS10 to save 10% at checkout! ❀❀

Good morning everyone and happy Friday! I've been so busy with life these last few days and have been very MIA from here. It's made me almost too lazy to post anything 😩 Anyone get the same way when they have been away from Insta for too Lon? I'm so bad I know but sometimes I find I just need a mental break from the "Bookstagram" world to come back with a fresh mind! .
.

I went Thrift book shopping the other day which is something I very rarely do and as I was browsing I was asking myself why I don't do it more often!!! I found so many good books for amazing deals! Especially these 90's versions of Judith McNaughts Paradise and Remember When. I was mostly excited to find the hardcover of Remember When for 6$ since her hardcovers are so hard to come by!! I know some people are a fan of the more recent covers of her books, but there is something so special about these ones and I hope I can find more like them! .
.
.
πŸ—¨ Who thrift shops for books?!? Please yell at me for taking so long to figure out how amazing it is! πŸ™Œ

This week I got some new book mail which included the 20th anniversary editions of books 1 and 2 of the Harry Potter series. Obviously I had to go with the Gryffindor editions because, hellooooo, I'm a Gryffindor girl at heart (even though I got put into Slytherin house πŸ˜’ I refuse to talk about this lol βœ‹) They are seriously beautiful books and I can't wait for the entire series to be out so I can see them all on my shelf and then I'll probably do a reread πŸ€”
.
.
.
Can we also talk about this seriously amazing candle from @the904store.etsy?? It has become my favourite candle and I refuse to light it until the first of September when it will really feel like an autumn day in Hogsmeade πŸ‚Jill truly brings on all the nostalgic harry potter feels with this one, so if you're a fan of the series, I'm telling you to grab one for yourself. And if you do, happy sniffing πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ Don't forget to use my code CBS10 at check out to save 10%! .

Happy Saturday book worms! I've seriously been on a historical romance binge and I think it's been affecting how I've been enjoying books that AREN'T HR. Hence my last post about my current read πŸ˜‘. So I've given up and I'm going to stick with what my mood is telling me and just see where it takes me.

After reading The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley a little while ago, I've been on a mission to collect all of her books. I found this one at @chaptersindigo for 6$ and was like SOLD! It sounds so freaking good as well so I'm excited to get to it. I'm not a huge lover of this cover but for 6 dollars, I'll take it!! .
.
.
Anyways, what is everyone reading this weekend? I think I'm going to start The Surviving Trace by Calia Read πŸ€”πŸ€” .
