CG Drews  I eat books for breakfast. Author of A THOUSAND PERFECT NOTES (coming June) 🎶 REP for: @illumicrate (CAIT10 = 10% off) 📚🐉 @owlcrate (FURY = 10% off)

Bookworm? I think you mean BOOK DRAGON, because I’m super keen on shiny covers and living in a cave alone for 500 years because socialising is exhausting and this is why Smaug is so relatable. .
.

My copy of #BloodAndSand came out of the latest @illumicrate box and my fantastically disjointed thumb came from the fact I, a dragon, am trying to wear a human skin. ALSO I have insider info that the next #illumicrate box is going to be the best ever 😍✨😍 (stained edges on the book! the book is great!) so get thee onto that before they sell out! “CAIT10” = 10% off!
.
.

QOTD:📚Since Blood And Sand is a badass gender bent Spartacus retelling…tell me some types of retellings you wish you saw more in YA?!? Historical? Legendary? Genderbends??? .

Me: Ahhh I just got my most anticipated book ever!
Human: Ooh that's great I bet you'll read that so fast!
Me: what haha no
Me: i'll put it on my TBR and stare at it for 6 to 7 years .
.

OK list of shame…here are some books I’m super ✨excited✨ about but also procrastinating so hard:
1. Obsidio (heLP)
2. Godsgrave (double heLPPP)
3. Chainbreaker
4. Before She Ignites
5. Grim Lovelies
6. The Smoke Thieves
7. Legendary .
.

well *goes to reread #theravencycle for the millionth time instead* .
.

QOTD: 📚Ok tell me (a) what book YOU’RE procrastinating, and (b) which of these I should hurry up and read.

It’s so hard to tell my favourite author because I’m so subtle and quiet about it???? And I definitely don’t sometimes cover my floor in Stiefvater books so I can swim in them. No. .
.

Also HI remember how I said I was drafting a new (messy) book?! It is going so well. 😍✨I love love love how tragic it is (WHOOPS) and the split-timeline is turning my skull to soup, but the challenge is exciting. I’m writing about 2K a day (instead of 30K lol lol) and actually have time to, you know, sleep?? Breathe?? Pat my dog?? Not just sit here screaming?? So wild. .
.

Snippets come up in my stories if you keep an eyeball open.😉My wip is basically = Fangirl + Starfish + The Wicker King. .
.

QOTD:📚Do you have a big collection for your favourite author?? Have you read all their books?? .

That moment when #MuseOfNightmares is in YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR.🧡🧡🧡I freaking adore orange, ok. (SunSET oraNGE PEETA.) And I’m already chewing through a brick wall in nervous anticipation for MoN in October. #StrangeTheDreamer had cake, monsters, and book love, so here take my love and money forever, Laini Taylor. Ahhhhh. .
.

QOTD: 📚Let’s be cliche and tell me your favourite colour! And is there a book cover that was just your FAVOURITE for the colour?! .

Matthias: justice

Honestly the things I care most about in books are (a) characters I care about, (b) humour!!!! (c) some stabbing (d) and how fast I can become obsessed with it and turn it into memes to show my affection.💖✨😂. .
Also #SixofCrows and #CrookedKingdom are rare examples of books where there’s so many narrators but I love them all?! .
.

QOTD:📚How many narrators do you prefer in a book?? How many is too many for you?😂 .

#TheCruelPrince is one of my top 3 books of this year I’M JUST SO OBSESSED also dead that the sequel ARCs are already circulating?! I do not have one. Clearly I have not sacrificed enough neighbours. .

Also this is the MOST SLYTHERIN book ever.🐍It’s so conniving and devious. .

My hardcover is an @owlcrate exclusive (I’m so in love with it I can’t even ahhhh) and how did I not realise it has this gorgeous pattern underneath it till now?!?😍It’s like SURPRISE: let me make you more obsessed with this book. You’re doing great, sweetie. (“FURY” = 10% off your box!) .

So:
1. usually I write super fast first drafts…but I’m actually doing this one slowly.😳
3. and coherently
4. is this how the mortals do it wow it’s wild
5. up to 10K over these last 3 days
6. Also my outline is freaking 23,000 words?!?? That’s a book by itself.
7. *pats pockets* where is my chill where did I put it down .

Start off the week right by rewarding yourself for existing with a new book while putting flowers in your hair and then stealing the witch throne which you will NOT put back, do not tell us what to do.
.

Sometimes I think I’m going to have a chill week and then I remember QUEEN OF AIR AND DARKNESS COMES OUT THIS YEAR AND I AM SO DEAD.💀#LadyMIdnight is possibly one of my favourite books ever. Mark and Ty tho. 😭❤️I want more fantasy books with messy big families, pancakes, autism, wild magic, and faeries. .

So I just passed 40,000 followers and !!!! I’m in shock!!😍I would give you all 9 CAKES if I could. Thank you just so much for supporting my photos and art and books and putting up with how many times I shout that we should all be pirates so we can wear tricorn hats. 😭💖 I LOVE YOU TOO. .

Some fun facts about my account?!
1. I basically try to sneak a Maggie Stiefvater book into EVERY photo. Check if you don’t believe me.😂
2. Rainbows are life. And minimalism? Haha I have not heard of it.
3. I’ve been instagramming for about 3 years.
4. I honestly would love to give tips but I have no idea where you all came from or why you stay so. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I think it’s my fantastic wit and how often I post photos of me being headless. Support headless bloggers!! Go us!! Who needs anything above a neck!!
5. I’m Australian and we harvest Vegemite from the deep mines and bathe in the blood of the gumtrees.
6. Joining in challenges is a fun way to meet people!
7. I do a ton of funny memes in my Stories so you should watch that mess.
8. When I get finished copies of my book, I’ll do some giveaways! (Annotated?!)
9. I take photos with a Nikon D3200.
10. YES I do spend hours setting up photos.😂I do not have a book cleanup fairy. It is a lot of work but 10000% worth it and I love this. .

QOTD:📚Tell me one of YOUR favourite authors…and then (tricky quiz time) can you guess some of mine?!? (You can’t guess Stiefvater though.😂It’s too obvious ah haha.) .

Now don’t let all the rainbows and these super cute sushi socks fool you…I’m a Slytherin. I AM. I am extremely ambitious and a huge overachiever.😂🐉Buuuut my smol sister is trying to convince me I’m actually a Ravenclaw. And I mean?? I do relate to Luna Lovegood a lot + I’m creative and non-conformative (Slytherins should be traditionalists and I’m very not???) and obviously am OBSESSED with books and bright colours.
.
.

So crisis time? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Or I claim Slytherclaw. .
.

QOTD: 📚 Do you know your Hogwarts House for SURE or do you second-guess?!😂 (Tell me your top 2 that you fit into?!) .
