“Bloodydamn. Did you get Carved?"
"By the best in the business. Do you like 'em?"
"They're bloodydamn marvelous. Fit you like a glove."
He punches his hands together. "Glad you said that. Cuz they're yours."

Morning Star, @piercebrownofficial .

Have you read the Red Rising saga? .
Fun fact; this photo is the ONLY post of mine which still receives likes to this day. So I’m reposting ✌️
.

@merwildandco designed these character bookmarks for the @illumicrate Howler special edition box last year! It was to celebrate the release of Iron Gold last year, and I’m hoping that there is going to be more hype for Dark Age release this year! I’ve already bought the legendary @faecrate Hangover Recovery Book Box for Dark Age, and even though it was expensive, I have very few regrets 😂 .

This is a throwback. Look at my shelves, I miss my shelves 😔 .

Today was an okay day. A lot happened but overall, I feel a lot better about where I am.
.
Do you preorder books?
.
Preorder incentives are what slowly kill my bank account and the announcement of the Aurora Rising preorder incentive(s) both elated and confused me this morning. My preorder now holds no incentive value, so I’ll have to purchase another copy from @qbdthebookshop to get the enamel pin, and I really want to get my hands on the novella so I guess I’ll see if I can spend an exhausting amount of money on conversion rates and shipping to grab a copy from @gcreading too. I’m excited for it, but it’s an excitement that’s also overshadowed by this emotional confusing frustration. So you see, today has been a weird kind of day.
.
.
(Yes, I’m posting about the same book twice in a row. I’ve run out of photos and it’s only been two days 😅)
.
I’m doing this now, if you comment and respond to the QOTD, I give you a shoutout!

We Are Okay.
.
Welcome to day 3 of the @ausyabloggers and @uqpbooks blog tour for @nina_lacour’s gorgeous book, We Are Okay. This is my stop!
.
How are you? Are you okay? What’s going on in your life?
.
I absolutely adored this little book, it was a quick read for me that kept me turning the pages to find out more about our main character, Marin, and her life. It was cute, and heartbreaking, and there was so much to relate to (this book did not lack something for everyone!) Heartbreak, first love and betrayals - honestly, this book can resonate with such a vast audience for so many different things. It’s not just for those who have lost someone, it’s not just for those who don’t know who they are, or where they want to be in this great wide world. It’s for everyone, in any sort of small way.
.
.
I’m currently at work, yay, so my full review will be up later this afternoon on my blog (and also on Goodreads, so whichever is easier for you to look at!) .

I missed Valentine’s Day – I was in another country, basking in a sunburn glow and drinking maybe a bit too much wine.
.
💕 how did you spend your day on Valentines? 💕 .
My Valentine’s Day was spent in mud baths, if I remember correctly, and at a Maori cultural evening with epic food (if only food could be considered a Valentine!)
.
But I did make great friends on my trip overall, and spending time with new people was incredible – thanks @intrepidtravel 🤘

Today’s caption inspired by this cute af hand lettered greeting card from @potionscandleco – this was on their FIRST EVER candle box, Potions Parcel, which was all inspired by the Shadowhunter Chronicles by @cassieclare1!

How has your day been going? Have you ever been a tourist in your own city?
.

Mine has been full of walking, sun and lots of books – I adventured around the Victorian Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne Central and the State Library with @rachandalotabooks!

Our legs hurt but today was very fun indeed – tomorrow has more books involved (and a trip to the dentist for me 😂)

Welcome to day 4 of the Emergency Contact Blog Tour!
.
This adorable book follows the stories of Penny and Sam, and their not-so-meet-cute relationship. Penny is adjusting to life in college, and Sam has other problems to deal with.
They exchange numbers and keep in touch over text, sharing secrets and becoming friends – all the while, eliminating the awkwardness that comes from seeing each other face to face.
.
#QOTD - do you find it easier to open up to people face-to-face or screen-to-screen?
.
✨REVIEW✨ .
The main thing I loved about this book was being able to see all the relationships. There wasn’t just romantic relationships, but there were friendship and kinship. All the tough times between characters set up this foundation for a character development that I didn’t see coming, which meant that by the end of the book I didn’t dislike a single character.
Even with the alternating POVs, I still felt like there was more detail and effort put into Penny’s side which made me feel like Sam was being pushed aside a little bit but when they interacted it was really very adorable and easy and just – the way you would picture the perfect modern twenty-first century relationship if relationships were purely screen-to-screen. (Who doesn’t want to talk about undead fruit and your life secrets?)
The pacing was pretty good, but it did start out slower for me and took a while to get to where I was expecting.
Overall, if you love a cute contemporary which is quick to read but still jam packed, this book gives you all that and more! .
Read the full review on Goodreads!

Blood of Sin is my current writing project which I’m hoping to finish this year if I can! @potionscandleco made me a custom candle for it and it’s the first piece of merch for my books ever and I love it 😭 .
.
Tell me about what you’re currently reading!
.
.
This weekend is an intense one for my family and I, so I won’t be around for much (sorry) but I’ll be back soon!
.

Can’t be bothered with too many hashtags today 🤷‍♀️ #Book #Bookstagram #bookish #bloodofsin #amwriting #writersofinstagram #booklover #currentread #potionscandleco #qotd #lifeofinkandwords

Not feeling super crash hot about my feed rn, so I’m going to try cheer myself up with some ship love!
.
Tell me, which ship gives you life! They can be canon or fanon 🤘
.
.
My top ships are definitely Percabeth (from #PJO!), Klance (from #Voltron!) and Feysand (from #ACOTAR!)
.
I say top ships because I have so many – i am a chronic multi shipper a lot of the time but usually there’s one “Crowned Ship” of each fandom!

Bianca
.

Pretty things don’t distract me. In my line of work, a distraction will get you caught. Or in my case, blackmailed. But this isn’t the only time I’ve been hustled, and soon Connor Hayes will learn that men are only pawns in my end game. I don’t love. I hate. Even a pretty boy like him. .
Hayes
.
Two wrongs don’t make a right. Except when they are five-foot-seven and hotter than my exhaust pipe. So, I blackmailed her. It was either that or turn her in. I figured if anyone was going to put her in handcuffs, it was going to be me. Bianca Morgan stole the only woman I’ve ever loved. It’s only fair she replace her.

Here’s to friends 🥂 .
Our last Melbourne bookish meet up went amazing so @aus.fangirl.reads, @bluefairytales_ and I have decided to organise a second one!
.
.
This one is a little different; it’s an evening meetup!
We’ll meet around 6pm at Eastland Shopping Centre (in Ringwood!) in front of QBD! Eastland is close to Ringwood Station, on the Belgrave or Lilydale train lines!
.
We can hit late night shopping, hang out together, grab some dinner and make new friends!
.
It says approximate 6PM start but feel free to arrive earlier – I’m personally going to try be there earlier, and I’ll keep everyone updated in case you get lost! (I don’t mind waiting for people at the train station!)
.
.
It’s not an official Book swap, but if you have books or merch you want to get rid of, feel free to bring it along and participate in a trade!
.
.
We call it a Melbourne bookish meet-up primarily because of the location but ANYONE IS WELCOME! (We already have a surprise visitor or two lined up to attend, who you might have never thought you’d meet in person 😉)
.
.
Feel free to comment any questions or DM us! We hope you can make it!
