Alright y’all! Let’s celebrate this beautiful Sunday with a multi-winner giveaway of “Girls Made of Snow and Glass” by Melissa Bashardoust. I’ve just started this book, but it’s off to a really intriguing start, so I can’t wait to really dive into it this week. .
❄️
@Flatiron_books has offered to send TEN copies of this book out to you guys! Unfortunately this is a US and Canada resident entry only, due to shipping restrictions. .

Synopsis:
Frozen meets The Bloody Chamber in this feminist fantasy reimagining of the Snow White fairytale .
❄️
At sixteen, Mina's mother is dead, her magician father is vicious, and her silent heart has never beat with love for anyone—has never beat at all, in fact, but she’d always thought that fact normal. She never guessed that her father cut out her heart and replaced it with one of glass. When she moves to Whitespring Castle and sees its king for the first time, Mina forms a plan: win the king’s heart with her beauty, become queen, and finally know love. The only catch is that she’ll have to become a stepmother. .
❄️
Fifteen-year-old Lynet looks just like her late mother, and one day she discovers why: a magician created her out of snow in the dead queen’s image, at her father’s order. But despite being the dead queen made flesh, Lynet would rather be like her fierce and regal stepmother, Mina. She gets her wish when her father makes Lynet queen of the southern territories, displacing Mina. Now Mina is starting to look at Lynet with something like hatred, and Lynet must decide what to do—and who to be—to win back the only mother she’s ever known…or else defeat her once and for all. .
❄️
Entwining the stories of both Lynet and Mina in the past and present, Girls Made of Snow and Glass traces the relationship of two young women doomed to be rivals from the start. Only one can win all.

Today's theme is something every reader should relate to at least to some level: books you've always wanted to read but never got to. I am sure each of us has them (my TBR is endless 🙈), so what are yours?
📚
Oki doki so, I wanted to make one these for a long time. It is so fun and so SATISFYING to see them fall, but god all mighty, building this spiral was a painnnnnn! It kept fallling and then poor James had to start all over again. Aaaand I still talk about myself in third person 😆
📚
Actually, I made 3 or 4 book dominos and each one was bigger than the one before (hint: this is the smallest one). If you guys like it I will post the other ones too... at some point... maybe... we shall see! 👿
📚
Hope you had a great weekend (translate: hope you got drunk; I only drank coffee 😖).

Happy Sunday loves! I attempted to reorganize my shelves because @pagesandwhimsy took a tiny trip to America and brought me back a truckload of books. I've been avoiding buying a new bookshelf for awhile now but it's beyond time. I have three huge boxes that need a home and I keep moving stuff so the white bookshelves can have my newest ones 😂. I literally have not bought a new clothbound in months because my clothbound shelf is CRAMMED full. can you spy the shelf with the majority of the newbies? I'll give you a hint - my lovely friend went to @barnesandnoble 😉. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #topfunkophotos #bookstagram #bookish #igreads #bibliophile #booklover #bookworm

"You're not like the other girls," the hero said.
"Oh wow someone noticed," said the girl said as she turned into a dragon and ate him.

. ↑↑↑ The kind of quality literature I want to see. .

Anyway! HELLO AND WELCOME to the leaning tower of books that’s not straight because apparently I can’t straighten anything in edits because I’m a delightful failure. But at least I’m DELIGHTFUL and appreciate myself. .
.

I also appreciate my bookshelf for being the most beautiful perfection in my life. And I appreciate I just had pie for dinner. And I appreciate I’m nearly finished slogging through Season 12 of Supernatural which is a FREAKING HEADACHE to watch. Omg. Who ruined this show. It’s so so boring and it used to be my top fav. .
.

QOTD: Tell me some random nonsensical thing you appreciate right now!
(And also totally tell me what show you’re watching at the moment! Recs wanted!) .

Movie review! 📽
.
I was gonna use my book including art from the movie but it was too big to fit into the photo 😒 so here's a pretty Dark Tower cover instead!
.
My non-spoiler thoughts: I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either. It was a similar experience to reading Wuthering Heights... one minute I was like "this is awesome" and then the next minute I was like "😒😒 no". I wish my facial expressions could have been recorded 😂 I always knew it wasn't gonna be the movie I wanted, but I went in with an open mind knowing it was gonna be different - it's not an adaptation of the books - and I think that's a good way to approach it.
.
It will get slightly spoilery from here on out... so beware of SPOILERS.
.
What I liked 😆
- The highlight for me was Tom Taylor (Jake). He is LITERALLY how I imagine Jake. I loved his performance.
- I also liked Idris Elba in the Roland role more than I thought? Some pretty cool Gunslinger skills 😎
- I liked the King Easter eggs, I got shivers multiple times at the Gunslinger's creed and hearing things like "long days and pleasant nights"
- I LOVED Roland's reactions to earth, that bus scene was possibly the highlight of the movie for me 😂
.
What I did not like 😒
- When Matthew McConaughey was verified as the Man in Black, I was confident he'd nail it. To me... he did not nail it. Something was missing for me. He felt kinda gimmicky?
- As for the final face-off between Roland and the MIB, I was sliding down my seat in embarrassment. I thought it was mega cringe and I hated it.
- I didn't see any damn roses in this entire movie? *EDIT - okay there was a graffiti rose at the end - hardly the same thing as a fucking field full of them*
- The general storyline bugged me slightly. My boyfriend asked me "is that how the series ends then? With Roland killing the MIB?" And I'm like NO! That's not the point of the fricking series!!! And I know this isn't a direct adaptation so I can't really complain about that..but I am, cos it annoyed me.
.
Ultimately, I still feel very conflicted. I don't think it represents how special and unique this book series is, but I still had a good time, and I'd probably give it a solid 6 out of 10 🌹

I Ladri di Notte, questa domenica, andranno a caccia e torneranno agli albori del giallo. Tra Gialli Mondadori, censure fasciste e i grandi nomi degli anni della ripresa, cercheremo di capire le evoluzioni e le caratteristiche nostrane del genere. Una puntata ricca di titoli e suggestioni che ci farà rivivere l'epoca di Alessandro Varaldo, Augusto de Angelis, Scerbanenco, Fruttero e Lucentini, Attilio Veraldi. E ci farà respirare le atmosfere di città come Milano, Napoli, Bologna.
Si, questa sera il nostro protagonista è il giallo nostrano, quello che possiamo trovare proprio sotto casa, uscendo magari in una di queste caldi notti di fine estate. Voi che fate, avrete il coraggio di uscire in strada con noi questa notte?

Be been in a major reading slump lately, however I picked this up again and it's kept my attention so far. I was going to wait until Halloween, but oh well! #book #books #bookstagram #bibliophile #booknerdigan #booknerd #bookgeek #bookdork #booklover #bookobsessed #bookaholic #bookaddict #read #reading #thehauntedcity

Hey bookdragons and bibliophiles!😘
What time is it?
(Get the reference?)

This is kind of an old photo😅 My shelves aren't even rearranged. Anyone hear of this book?

I'm not feeling super fantastic, so quick post today.
I coached, but the heat made me sick. I'm so happy I get to go to my sister and cousin's game..🙃 And then get to go to a campfire at my grandparents until the wee hours of the night...🙃

Getting ready for another crazy week ft. the stack of books I need to finish and the large cup of tea that I lost track of how many times I have refilled. #HappySunday #bibliophile #erincondren #planner #journal #considerthelilies2017

First post of the day and the day is practically over 🙈 I feel bad. Sorry guys 😅


I tried and failed some more to do some creative things to get a chance to win the ARC but yeah... didn't go so well. I planned on doing cosplay tomorrow when no one's home and then it's studying all day long 😫 I really don't like studying but I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one.
Also I'm watching Fallen for the third time in a row and I don't know why because it's not like the movie is ridiculously great? Sometimes I don't get myself and by sometimes I mean most of the time 🙈

Prized possessions.. ⚜🌹⚜~ #livecolorfully #lafemmeeclectique ~

Hello, Dreamers! Today I started taking some photos for September. The idea was to take the first week but I wound up taking most of the month 😂💪 @harleyisreading and @marey.reads are scared of me.

#bookreadhappyhour Character You Wouldn't Want to Mess With - Mia Corvere is armed and dangerous and if you get on her bad side, you're dead! And Mr. Kindly could kill you with his sass alone 😂😂😂 #booklandaugust Sci-Fi love - I don't read a lot of sci-fi. I don't do it on purpose, I swear 😂 When I do, I usually love it. Like The Lunar Chronicles, here featured with Winter. It's one of those series that made me dizzy and giddy with feels. My sister knows.

#fanaticalbirdaugust Fave Female Friendship - I love the friendships in TLC. Not just the girls, but everyone. The last short story in Stars Above had my heart bursting with happiness at seeing them all together.

#jayjaysconstantfaerytalesaugust Read in one Sitting - I was shocked to find myself at the end of the book when I read L'Erede di Gavriel (Gavriel's Heir) by Licia Troisi. It did not feel like I had been reading for too long 😂 That is a sign the book was great!
