#ADarkerShadeOfOctober

MOST RECENT

My goal for the rest of August and September is to catch up on my reread of ToG, and finally read the Six of Crows duology and A Darker Shade of Magic!
___
✨What do you plan on reading these next two months?
___
A huge thank you to @tinted_prose for getting me a copy of this beautiful comic and getting it signed!!
Also a big thank you to @witchywickscandleco for gifting me with these Coraline candles. The Other Mother smells just like this mango yogurt shake I get from the Mediterranean and Greek restaurant.
___
📖 Blurb:
Delve into the thrilling, epic tale of the young and arrogant prince Maxim Maresh, long before he became the king of Red London and adoptive father to Kell, the lead of A Darker Shade of Magic!

The youthful Maresh is sent to a violent and unmanageable port city on the Blood Coast of Verose, on strict orders from his father, King Nokil Maresh, to cut his military teeth in this lawless landscape.

There, he encounters an unruly band of soldiers, a lawless landscape, and the intoxicatingly deadly presence of the newly returned pirate queen, Arisa...

»“I'm not going to die," she said. "Not till I've seen it."
"Seen what?"
Her smile widened. "Everything.“«
- “A Darker Shade Of Magic“ by V.E. Schwab

The picture is more than a year old but I still like it. I’m tired and couldn’t take pictures but I’m really happy because I finally have what I wished for: a tattoo and a septum piercing. The tattoo still hurts a bit, it’s still a wound but I feel good with it and gonna take pictures with it tomorrow, just because I’m loving it 😌
Do you have a tattoo or piercing or do you want one?

Just a couple days ago I finished reading A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue...if you haven’t read it yet, I definitely recommend it! It’s a wonderful story of self acceptance and is also really funny and fun to read🖤


#ADarkerShadeOfOctober is LGBTQ book 🏳️‍🌈
.
#psychyououttober is fast paced read
.
Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue fits both! 🖤🖤

Day 8 of #PrettyInkWinter is Book Maps.
I never realized there was a map my copy of Champion until I reread it last month!
The world that this series is set in is so interesting! I wish we learned a little more about the other countries.

"Christmas Eve is my favorite... I think the anticipation is more fun than anything else. I kind of lost that. The idea that something - food, traditions, an arbitrary date on the calendar - can be special because we decide it should be. We make it special. Not just for ourselves, but for others." ~ Kiersten White || My True Love Gave To Me

Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃🍾🍻

I am celebrating and feasting with my family tonight and relaxing afterwards! I was reading earlier today and now I’m 100 pages into A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir and loving it! I can’t wait for A Reaper at the Gates!

Here’s another one of my new editions - the US Black A Darker Shade of Magic collectors editions! I want to collect the other 2 as well, but those can wait for now. These books are not only beautiful to look at but beautifully written! I can’t wait to read A Gathering of Shadows next ☺️ @veschwab
Who else is taking Turkey day to relax? What books are you reading to celebrate? And if you’re not from the US, what’s your current read?

16 October- Happy Monday bookstagrammers! The weather is gorgeous and I am in heaven- I’m tempted to just grab a book and go sit outside in the sunshine and ignore all my adult responsibilities 😅 (I wish!) 👻 Being a grownup is a pain sometimes. 🎃

💀#fanaticalbirdoctober is “fantasy or contemporary” and honestly, it’s a tough choice for me because I love both! But if I absolutely had to choose between them, I’d choose fantasy. I love the world building and endless possibilities created-especially in YA fantasy.
🦇#ahauntedlibrary is “witchy reads”- Manon and the rest of the Thirteen are my favourite witches in YA. And can Maeve count as a witch? She’s got all the witchy vibes!
🕷#adarkershadeofoctober is Osaron (dark characters)- I love a good villain or twist on the typical hero character, so the entire Six of Crows gang, Rhysand, the Dragon (from Uprooted), and Mia and Mister Kindly are just a few of my faves in this stack!
⚰️#octinbooks is favourite witch and wizard- Manon from Throne of Glass and the Dragon from Uprooted. Or Fred and George. And Luna. Actually, please don’t make me pick. I love them all! 😅😍

Have I mentioned @veschwab on here before? .
Well, her books are in the finals of 2 goodreads choice awards, A Conjuring of Light in Adult Fantasy (up against authors like J.K. Rowling and Niel Gaiman) and Our Dark Duet (shown here) is up for YA fantasy, up against Cassandra Clair and Sarah J. Maas.
.
If you have a goodreads account, consider voting for them, they are both really, really good.

#ADarkerShadeOfOctober challenge prompt- Lila Bard (rad female characters)
.
.
I chose some of my favourite and most badass female characters for this prompt. Hermione (the brightest witch of her age), would Ron and Harry have survived without her?! I wouldn't place my bet on yes😏! Lila Bard (the grey thief) was Kell's saviour every time he landed himself in trouble, which was quite often to be honest 😂! Inej (the Wraith), now who doesn't know her? Climbing twenty storeys easily as if its a cake walk and surviving the Barrel! And last but not the least, Celia Bowen holding the whole of the circus together all on her own and capable of saving not only herself but also her "hero" if the time comes!❤️
.
.
The open book in the image is Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone on the page where Hermione makes her priorities clear to Ron and Harry, "We could've been killed or worse, expelled"

The art print is from @flicker.doodle.library and the other circular ones are made by me😬

I don't think I have read any series so fast. I finished The Grisha Series by Leigh Bardugo within a matter of 3 days. Now let's talk about the series. I read Six of Crows duology before this so I already knew a few things. But it was still so gripping and adventurous that I kept turning the pages one after the other. Although I still don't know which character is my favourite in this series (honestly I can never pick favourites anyway), I love the way Bardugo developed Genya's character. For me, she started out as a girl who is infinitely beautiful (and well, knows it) and also head over heels in love with David. And by the end, she was transformed into someone who is amazingly strong and full of resolve that she isn't even afraid of facing the Darkling or calling out the King himself for his deeds. Her character showed such growth that I was left in awe of it. .
.
#adarkershadeofoctober challenge prompt: Anoshe (october wrap up). Well I definitely read a lot in October. I even finished Carry On today which isn't shown in the picture. And apart from reading Dumb Witness, The Grisha series and SOC duology, I also reread few of my all time favourites.
.
.
The prompt for @featheryneoncrate weekly challenge is Your unique style of bookish photographs. And this is wrap up for this challenge. Loved all the prompts.

My Adsom Collector Editions arrived yesterday and I’m so happy! This is my favourite series and I’m so happy to finally own a physical copy (or two…)
.
I got both the UK and the US hardcovers because I simply couldn’t decide, I love the end paper of the UK one, @xcrini’s typography in the US one.
