Been reading some great #yalit recently by @hannahbarnaby @corey_whaley @davidlevithan @nina_lacour @veschwab @mauxbot Thanks for putting these stories into the world! #weneeddiversebooks #amreadingya #bookstagram

Check out this amazing book mail I got this week! GIRL ON THE VERGE by @pintip_dunn. #amreading #booknerdigans #bookstagram #amreadingya

The best book I've read in years. #amreading #amreadingya #ampodcasting #podcast YABooksPodcast

Off to the bookstore looking like a floozy with my cheap shades bigger than my head. #amreading #amreadingya

In case you need a big laugh and a big cry in the same book ... I suggest John Green. #johngreenbooks #amreadingya

Just... I'm speechless.
Leigh Bardugo is an author whose books pulled me through one of the worst depressive episodes I've lived through, whose stories helped me remember what it means to feel things. And tonight I got to meet her! I listened to her just, like, shed wisdom, and she hugged me (!!!) and now I'm blinking back tears on the subway. Heart = full.
I have so many more words (lol duh) and I'll totes share them eventually but for now just an important one: STARSTRUCK.

In honor of the first cold weekend of Autumn 2017, I am reading FOLLOW ME BACK by AV Geiger, a thriller about a famous musician, obsessed fangirls, and more than a little catfishing. #amreading #amreadingYA 🍁

I'm sick with a minor flu - head is foggy, joints ache, and I have a fever that is making me sweat.
*
Silver lining is based on my daughter's bout with this virus I know I'm nearing the end.
*
I am so uncomfortable I have to keep thinking confortable thoughts.
Today's aggirmation speaks true.
#petalposse #livealife

I've been laughing so loud lately. So loud, I've taken notice. But I don't know what it is, everything seems to strike my funny bone.
*
To be honest, I've absolutely been loving these boisterous laughs. They've been making life more enjoyable. *
I highly recommend laughing loud. It brings a lot of joy.
#petalposse #livealife

I'm inspired by the holiday season.
*
Joy fills the heart and soul.
#petalposse #livealife

Happiness is what so many of us seek. *
Imagine capturing happiness in a jar. Then open the jar and put your hand in it. What does happiness feel like?
*
I imagine happiness as gold with shiny specks of shimmer. And when I place my hand inside, my face lights up and I smile. My heart is filled with warmth and my thoughts are giddy.
#petalposse #livealife

Affirmations help us create a framework for our life.
*
With affirmations we can shift our mindset to one that will seek to fulfill it.
#
Saying affirmations out loud can sound silly and akward at first. However, the more you say them, the less weird they feel. Each time allowing your mind to believe it and start acting towards it.
#petalposse #livealife

Affirmations are a means of convincing your mind you have what you want, so you can attain it.
*
Try saying an "I have" affirmation with the feeling that you truly have it.
#petalposse #livealife

Affirmations can be hard because often times what we are saying does not align with our feelings.
*
Say "I am" with confidence.
*
"I AM" are powerful words

In Stealing Liberty, Reed and Riley find music in the hidden cache of media under the library. . . Other than what's mentioned in the book, what songs or artists do you imagine hidden there?

It’s a snowy Sunday morning in Canada. Time to fix myself up to some fairytales from @lbardugo #languageofthorns Haven’t read this yet, but since I loved #grishaverse and #sixofcrows I’m sure this is a delight! .

Ok so it's snowing here so we just thought we'd switch it up and have a slightly non-themed photo just for a change! Will probably delete later but we've tried our best to keep with the teal and white style so who knows! Is it snowing where you are? We almost never get snow so the roads are chaos! What better excuse than to stay in and read with a cup of tea β˜•β˜•β˜•β˜•β˜•β˜•β˜•β˜•β˜•β˜•β˜•β˜•#books #bookstagram #instaread #instabook #bookblog #bookblogger #ilovebooks #ilovereading #amreading #amreadingya #book #reading

Someone called me admirable once and I was surprised. I suppose I have accomplished quite a bit in my life that one could admire, I just never functioned with that in mind. Until, I had my children.
*
My children will have many heroes and people they admire. My hope is that I'm one of them. *
Be one to admire - it can be as simple as the way you carry yourself to a huge life accomplishnent. Don't be afraid to shine.
#petalposse #livealife

Even though you have made mistakes you are still worthy of good things.
*
Worthy of love, happiness, opportunities, joy, kindness, comfort, etc.
#petalposse #livealife

You are deserving of good things. *
Deserving of kindness, love, respect, laughter, happiness, and joy.
*
Give yourself a hug and know you're deserving.

#petalposse #livealife

Just reading this pumps me up.
When I've felt I lacked power, I always have had strength.
When I've felt not so brave, I always had strength. *
Strength makes you resilient. It sets you on a path of feeling powerful and being brave.
#petalposse #livealife

To be brave is to feel the fear and do it anyway.
*
Bravery can show itself in simple moments where we just step out of our comfort zone - or in instances of heroism where we save oursleves or others from a bad situation.
*
Be brave. You are brave.
#petalposse #livealife

It wasn't until I was in my thirties that I realized the power I truly have inside. *
The #metoo movement, just as it has for so many women and men, kicked up dust and reminded me of times when I too experienced harassment as a young woman. There were many times in my teens and twenties when I felt powerless. That I had to put up with being mistreated or disrespected.
*
Now, I get in a power stance and declare I am powerful.
#petalposse #livealife

Something my mon says, "I'm not fun."
*
Which is so not the case! My mom is so much fun! I just think she has a hard time allowing herself to have fun.
*
My main objective for life is having fun. If I'm not having fun, or what I'm doing does not place me on the road to fun, then I don't want to do it. FUN!
*
Letting go! Being weird! Acting silly! All lead to fun. Have some fun. You are a fun person.
#petalposse #livealife

Silliness is how I release stress.
*
Having kids has really nutured my silly. It's invigorating.
*
One night I heard the kids singing a song about a llama. It was weirdest silliest song and I had to learn it. "Awkward turtles make weirs babies..." And now we sing it together.
*
Bring on the silly.

It's in the low 40s today which, unfortunately, is the closest we'll probably get to snow on the Texas gulf coast. Spending my day in front of the fireplace, drinking hot chocolate and trying to finish up my 2017 TBR.

In high school, I think I heard this statement the most, "You're weird." And it wasn't so much an insult, but a factual statement. Then I would think, "Well, you're boring." And it wasn't so much an insult, but a factual statement.
*
I love being different. The thing that gets me the "weird" comment the most is when I'm just trying to have fun.
*
Singing in a place you aren't suppose to sing. Dancing in a place you aren't supposes to dance. To ask a compelling question in a place you aren't supposed to ask questions. I know --weird.
#
Be weird. It's fun.

This book was on my birthday list and I was super excited when I opened my present and there it was ☺ this will be the first memoir I've ever read! #books #reading #amreading #bookstagram #instaread #instabook #bookblog #bookblogger #ilovebooks #ilovereading #amreading #amreadingya #book #books #reading #amreading #bookstagram #instaread #instabook

Something I noticed with my kids is when they get in trouble they ask if they are bad. My answer is always, "No, you're still good. You just made a poor decision."
*
Be forgiving of yourself. We all make mistakes. Just because you flubbed up, does not mean you are not good.
*
Every day we are learning to be and sometimes we mess up, while still maintaining our goodness.
#petalposse #livealife

Just reading this affirmation brings a levity to my soul.
*
Visualize yourself as light and you begin to beam. *
Sometimes we only have a small flicker of light because circumstances have bred darkness. Hold on to the light that shines in your core. Breathe life into it as you would a fire. And eventually, it will catch overpowering the darkness that has settled.
#petalposse #livealife

In the book my sister and I are writing (and now editing), we had to figure out how would you determine if someone was virtuous?
*
I feel like virtuousity and morality can be on scale. We are bound to move up and down the range.
*
Being virtuous in our decisions might be a goal worth pursuing. What could be achieved with a virtuous heart?

It’s looking a lot like Christmas! Oh, wait- how did that book get on my Christmas πŸŽ„? 🎁I wish I could give all you books for Christmas! 🎁My gift to you this December is a bundle of Book Love Reviews. Hop on over to my website to check out this weeks review of #thedarkestpartoftheforest by #hollyblack

The second installment of this series is just as amazing as the first. The introduction of new characters and the development of existing characters is flawless. Michael Scott is my idol! ❀️❀️

Emma Mills is a master of believable and hilarious banter and the best, best friendships. I love all of her books, and I went in to her latest with very high expectations. Reader, she did it again. This book has my favorite teenage boy friendship that has ever existed, and though it features a swoon-worthy romance, the relationships among friends, both new and old, completely won me over. There’s even an boy band obsessed fan girl with a prickly exterior who will also totally win your heart. I mean really. This book has it all. β€” Kenzie #amreading #amreadingya #youngadult #youngadultlit #yalit

What are you reading over the Holidays?? πŸ˜ƒπŸ“šπŸŽ„β€οΈπŸ΄ #horses #horsebook #amreading #amreadingya #horselove #deckthestalls #countrychristmas #horses🐴 https://www.amazon.com/Brittney-Joy/e/B00JQIJUOY/

My daughter made a Build-A-Bear and when she had to name it, she named it "Me." *
When we asked, "Your name?" She said, "No. Me. M - E." *
Me is a beautiful rainbow bear that has her own personality. And has been renamed "Rainbow" by my youngest. *
Being yourself is the best! It's guaranteed you are the only you there is. Be proud of you. Claim it! If you are unable to believe in anything else, know you are uniquely and beautifully you.

I think is one of my favorite so far.
*
Last year, my oldest was down on herself because she'd come to the conclusion she was one of the slowest runners in her class. And being 8 at the time, it was a bummer.
*
So, I asked her, "Which is faster a cheetah or a lion?" She answered "Cheetah." So, I asked, "Does the cheetah's speed make the lion less awesome?" She said, "No, it's good at other stuff." My response, "Then maybe your a lion. Not a cheetah. There's other things that make you awesome. Let the cheetah's have running fast."
*
You might be a lion. Or parrot. Or goldfish. No matter what you are, you have characteristics that make you uniquely awesome.
#petalposse #livealife

Beauty is much more a feeling than a physical factuality.
*
Someone can be physically beautiful and feel unattractive. Or be physically unattractive and the most capitivating in the room.
*
Beauty is a feeling. A feeling that can propell you to more positive life progressing feelings. Believe you are beautiful.
#petalposse #livealife

I think this can be actually harder realization to come to than being love or loving.
*
I am one that gives money to those that ask on the street. If I have cash, I give it (which goes a long with a whole other philosohy I live by, but that's not what this is about.) And in those interactions, I make I contact, I am respectful of the human asking for help.
*
One time there was a woman at the gas station asking for money. I checked my wallet and all I had was a $10. So, I turned and handed it to her. "This is for you."
Tears welled in her eyes. I didn't know how long she'd been out there asking, but I imagine it had not been a fun challenge. I remember thinking in that moment, "Human to human - I love you." *
In that moment, she was loved by me. You are loved. If sadly not all the time by family or friends, know that you are human to human, loved by me.
*
I've started this very instagram with my love for you.
#petalposse #livealife

A fact to know is that your sheer existence is love.
*
Now, that fact can be bruised, tarnished, and demolished. But at your root is love.
*
If you can find the spec of love within yourself, and nourish it. Breathe life into it. That spec can grow to be your light in the darkness.
LOVE
#petalposse #livealife

Be loving.
*
Acting in love. An interaction in love can shift a moment in time. It can be a pebble in the ripple of life.
*
And to be loving. To show another being love is a super power.
#petalposse #livealife

We are all important.
*
What you do, what you say, how you act are all important. You have the capability of changing the world in a single action.
*
Once you understand your importance, you are more likely to treat yourself and others right.
*
You are important.
#petalposse #livealife

Imagine if everyone acted with kindness at their core. *
I remember a story someone told me in college about their dance instructor. She had gotten to Starbucks during a rush and stood in an extraordinary long line. Finally, when her drink was ready the barista spilled the drink. And instead of yelling or harping on the frazzled barista, she gave a $10 tip and said she wait. The amount of empathy and kindess the instructor showed that day made such an impact on me (who heard the story second-hand). I imagine what ripple of kindness that day had. We need more ripples like that.
#petalposse #livealife

When I heard The Help’s Aibileen say, β€œYou’s kind. You’s smart. You’s important,” for the first time, I was touched. It was something I knew my three year old needed to hear and know.
*
Except for - I didn’t want her to hear me say it to her, I wanted her to say it to herself. *
So, we changed it -
I am smart.
I am beautiful.
I am kind.
I am important. *
Now, with three babies from the oldest to the youngest, we say this mantra together.
Just because - or during times of self-doubt. Maybe school or homework is difficult. Social anxiety. Trouble with peers. I really want it to be become apart of their internal language. Giving them an arsenal of positive self-talk. The positive to help battle the negative voices internal and external.

30th and last day of #bookishscavengerhunt17 and I'm proud of myself for sticking at this challenge! Really enjoyed having pointers as to what to post and enjoyed seeing everyone else's takes on the themes! Today's theme confused me a bit as it's 'house colours' ...not sure if that's Harry Potter house colours or colours in my house but I've gone with both! Blue for Ravenclaw and blue because my bedroom is blue πŸ‘Œ what did everyone think of this theme? #books #reading #amreading #bookstagram #instaread #instabook #bookblog #bookblogger #ilovebooks #ilovereading #amreading #amreadingya #book

Now reading...
.
Also, practicing flourishes on book titles and quotes is so helpful!

Day 29 of #bookishscavengerhunt17 and the theme is book that starts with the letter of your first name 😊 so I've skipped the 'The' and gone straight for 'Handmaid's' (H for Heather) πŸ˜† I have read this book and it was good but thought it could have been better?! Unpopular opinion obviously! Will definitely watch the tv series πŸ‘Œ #books #reading #amreading #bookstagram #instaread #instabook #bookblog #bookblogger #ilovebooks #ilovereading #amreading #amreadingya #book #thehandmaidstale

I'll be taking over @albertwhitman's instagram today and showing you all a sneak peek of the photo shoot behind the book cover to Ignite the Stars, my #YA #scifi novel coming out in Fall 2018. Check it out and feel free to drop me some questions if you're curious about the process!

Day 26 of #bookishscavengerhunt17 and the theme is bloody books πŸ™ƒ we don't read an awful lot of horror and haven't read this one yet but am currently reading I Am Behind You by John Ajvide Lindqvist and loving it πŸ‘Œ it's a bit weird but so intriguing πŸ€— #books #reading #amreading #bookstagram #instaread #instabook #bookblog #bookblogger #ilovebooks #ilovereading #amreading #amreadingya #book #amreadinghorror

Oh, the joy of finishing a book and finding out it's the first in a series, and then also that the second one is already out, and then also that the second one is currently available to download from the library.
Time travel! Regular travel! And extremely charming love interest! A deadbeat father you can't quite quit! Guavas! This book has it all. Definitely recommended. --Emily
