Happy #ShireSunday folks! I hope you're able to enjoy a peaceful, rest-filled day. I didn't get to go to church today because I'm still feeling under the weather with this tonsillitis. But hey, I'm getting plenty of reading done in my down time πŸ‘ I'm taking Al's (@littlebookwormig) advice and looking for that silver lining!

This beautiful word art necklace was made by my friend Dena (@bookworm_365) and it's available to purchase, along with a ton of other awesome bookish jewelry, in her Etsy shop, Poppet's Widgets. Click the link in her bio to visit!

I'd like to take this time to do a few tags from my lovely friend, Krista (@darkness_becomes_me), who isn't here anymore to see them. If you've wondered about her, Krista is taking a break from Instagram. She encountered too much bullying, and felt that she just needed some time away to decide if Instagram was the right place for her. This makes me so sad. And mad, too! Who has the right to say mean and nasty things to someone else? To belittle them about their reading choices, their photos, or their patriotism? To not only make rude comments on their posts, but to send nasty DMs too? No one, that's who! Life is hard enough without people coming along and being judgmental about your Instagram posts. Can't we all just be nice to each other?

I was tagged a while ago by @ash.reads to do a #bookishcloseup! This one passage of Clockwork Princess always gets me right in the feels!

Day 24 of #julyhottestreads: Morning Tea/Coffee

It's totally not morning here, it's actually 10:20pm, but let's ignore this tiny fact. I finally managed to keep up with July Challenge so yay for me.

I took this photo such a long time ago and it's probably my favorite photo I took. I honestly have no idea why I haven't posted it sooner. I took it while having an old books photoshoot. And, Gosh, the smell of old books and hot black coffee in my nose was to die for.

The book is The Winner's Kiss.

I have a little extra time tonight. That is never promised on a Monday. I am going to try and knock out tomorrow's challenges real quick. #constantreaderchallenge Day 6-Make this a movie! Wouldn't it be amazing to see The Fireman brought to life? It will be quite beautiful. It already has the soundtrack all worked out. πŸŽΆπŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸ» β€’Adding in tags for #bookishcloseup by @constant_reader_19 & for #bookishmacromonday by @jamesfahyauthor Thanks everyone. I hope your Monday doesn't suck.

Hey y'all! 🌷
How has the day been treating you so far? My day has been a "meh", since it's a Monday, ya know.

Here's a super random picture I created while playing around with an editing app. Yes, it's the same editing app I used for yesterday's picture. Thank you so much, btw, for all your lovely comments on yesterday's post. πŸ’œ It was totally unexpected. 😬

Tag time!

1. The first book fandom I joined is the Percy Jackson fandom, or rather, the Rick Riordan fandom. Let's be real here. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
2. I cry over books a lot.
3. I originally started this account to go with my blog, not the other way around.
4. I dog-ear pages of library books. Am I a monster? Who else does that too?
5. Before I started using actual bookmarks, I would memorise the page number I stopped at.

This is a page out of Eyes of the Dragon, one of my absolute favorite Stephen King books of all time. Flagg is the best villain and Frisky is the best doggy ever! She is such a cool part of the story, the smallest things and characters matter so much in this tale. Frisky is Naomi's best, the nose and brain and loyalty of that dog are awesome!
#bibliophilebookpile ...also counting this as my #bookishcloseup & #holygrailbook because this shot of Frisky aligned well with my "neighbor" @chi_dmb tags she gave me, because this is my new/but old copy I used for this bookart :)

@chi_dmb Thank you for the tag πŸ˜€ My #HolyGrailBook and #BookishCloseUp is Interview With The Vampire by Anne Rice.
This was the first vampire book i ever read back in my teens (many moons ago 😊) and remember being swept off my feet by Lestat,caught up in his decadence,and feeling the woes of Louis,his conflicting emotions of mortality and immortality,the descriptions are beautiful,and the writing flows throughout,its a beautifully written book,and pure vampiric escapism,it was the first Anne Rice book i ever read,ever loved and remains one of my favourite vampire novels of all time...πŸ˜ŠπŸ“š

I was tagged by @justolivia_19 for #holygrailbook and for #bookishcloseup. This is only because this is the earliest published SK book that I own. My holy grail books are my Dark Tower books, but I need to get them all in the same style. They're all random collections. πŸ™„Anywho, feel free to join in on these tags..or not...your choice. βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–

Double-post today, while I'm waiting for rice to cook.
Tag-time again!

Cody @my_bibliophilic_life tagged me for #ReaderProblems (thanks!)
1.You have 2000 books on your TBR how do you decide what to read next?
= Sometimes a book starts calling to me while I’m still on my current read, sometimes I use my tbr-jar, sometimes I throw a hissy-fit because I can’t choose.
2. You are halfway through a book and not enjoying it. Do you quit?
= Yes. I have finished a few books that I didn’t like, but generally I think there are so many books I want to read, so why waste my time on something I’m not enjoying?
3. The end of the year is coming and you are so close , yet so far from your GR goal. Do you try to catch up and why?
= I might try to catch up with easy-breazy YA books, but trust me, I’m not having this problem this year :P
4. The covers of a series do not match how do you cope? = I try to pay attention which editions I’m getting, so this is rare for me.
5. Everyone loves a book you can't stand. Who do you bond with about it? = Sometimes my friends outside bookgram, othertimes bookgrammers, there’s bound to be someone that doesn’t like it either (have you noticed how all the unpopular opinion posts usually get a ton of feedback agreeing with said unpopular opinion? I think we need to express our unpopular opinions more often).
6. You are reading a book and you are about to start crying in public. What do you do?
= Let them flow. Tears are not to be held back. Then again, I rarely ugly-cry at books, so not sure what I’d do in that case :D

πŸ“Œ the challenge for me about these prompts is that I never really know what to pick as I am writing them down. The book I was going to choose, I didn't have any photos of, soooo, I'll just go with this one...although, now that I think about it, I think it works better anyway...
β€’
Today was supposed to be a photo day, but my husband got off work later than he was supposed to, and then too much stuff came up, so I couldn't. I hope it's nice tomorrow. This is another major reason I need to move to an indoor theme. Ugh.

readaroundtherosie its here im reading it

Two days left of holiday 😊 I've done so much swimming I'm still vaguely waterlogged - you know when the back of your throat tastes chloriney for the rest of the day? Or maybe that's more to do with the over-enthusiastic 5yo who finds it hilarious to knock me over in the water. I don't have the best balance, and he has the force of a small cannon ball.

I was tagged by @justolivia_19 to post a #bookishcloseup : this is as close as I dare get to the HB copy of my current read - The Tommyknockers. I grabbed this copy at a library book sale? I think? It's a first edition but I didn't care about the state of the dust jacket (at the time) because I just needed it in HB, period. Now I am keeping my eye out for a better copy because this dust jacket makes me sadface 😒
.
This week has been jam packed and I haven't gotten through as much of this book as I would have liked. But I'm off today, boyfriend is sleeping and the weather is yuck (of course) so I'm hoping to plow through most, if not all, of it by tonight.

The book is The Winner's Kiss.

A few days ago, I was tagged by the amazing @eulen_kuss for #bookishcloseup and picked Furthermore by @taherehmafi . To be completely honest, I was a bit skeptic about the story at first, I feared it may be too childish for me. But the cover was so gorgeous I could'nt not bring it home, and good thing I did because I LOVED THIS BOOK. I am actually really excited about its companion Whichwood!
