Tragic Love 💔 ------------------- I don’t care what anyone says. The Tragic Love award goes to Tessa and Jem. It breaks my freaking heart every time I think of their love story. ————————
Also I’m currently reading City of Heavenly Fire and I got to the point where we see Jem again and I freaking started to ball my eyes out. ----------------- #allthebooksoct18 #instabooks #instapics #becauseofreading #bookstagramfeature #bookblog #ireadya #yabooks #yalovin #redandwhitebooks #bookshelves #yareads #yalit #booksofinstagram #seaofmonster #cityofbones #sarahjmass #acourtofthronsandroses #shefliesunday #bookphotography #bookstagrammer #currentlyreading #booktube #booktuber #blog #yablog #buddyreads

🍂Over-The-Shoulder Reads🍂
I have this terrible habit of peeking over my husbands shoulder to see where he’s at in a book. I’m his personal librarian, so I’ve already read whatever I recommend to him, and I always like to imagine what he’s thinking when he gets to a certain part. He likes privacy when he reads, so I don’t always have a chance to do this. But when the hurricane came through, the only place where it was light enough to read was on our back porch. I was finally able to lean over and see where he was and know how close he was to solving the mystery of the thriller. It made me wonder, what do other people think about when they read over someone’s shoulder...
🍁
Do any of you guys read over someone else’s shoulder? Maybe when you’re at a library or a bookstore, you find yourself slowing down and squinting so you can see while still keeping a polite distance. Do you hate it when people read over your shoulder? Let me know your thoughts! Inquiring minds—me—want to know. 🍁
Also, I’m halfway through this book and it’s well written but I’m still trying to figure out if I like it or not. Only time will tell...

Happy Sunday! It’s Mackenzie from @thephdivabooks with a peek at what’s coming up for the #6bookbesties! We have this fun romantic romp on deck and cannot WAIT to cozy up with it!! I’ll admit, I used to think I didn’t like romance books because I thought of them in the erotica style and it just wasn’t for me. But the more I read, the more I learn that Romance really runs the gamut from erotic to historical drama to comedy, and everything in between. I’m a convert!!! Which type of romance book is your favorite?? .
.
ABOUT THE BOOK: When freelance writer Nikole Paterson goes to a Dodgers game with her actor boyfriend, she is blindsided by a scoreboard proposal which she rejects. At the game with his sister, Dr. Carlos Ibarra comes to Nik's rescue. A mutual attraction leads to a friendship with benefits since neither wants a serious relationship--or so they think...
.

We are so grateful to the little book fairy at @berkleypub for our copies!!! We can’t wait to read this!!!

Greek mythology is really having a moment isn’t it?

Since watching the film Troy years ago I’ve been drawn into that world of honour, courage, complicated family dramas and god/goddesses.

I have just read Song of Achilles by @maelline.e.miller as a buddy read, and thanks to @velvetreadsbooks, @rosie_tinted_books learnt loads about how the original, the Iliad and then the Odyssey, were essentially poems written by Homer who wrote them down after the were spoken from town to town.

Song of Achilles is a modern version of this Trojan classic, and made me realise that Hollywood kind of exaggerated some parts (surprise, surprise!). Home Fire by @kshamsie is a modern version of Antigone by Sophocles while the Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker tells the Trojan war from a female perspective.

And to bring it all together is Mythos by @stephenfryactually, which vividly retells more tales from the gods and goddesses.

Have you been cast by the Greek spell too?

If you’d like to read any of these as a buddy read, let me know in the comments. I’ll then add you to a private group chat where you can either discuss the book as you read it rather than all at once at the end or you can choose to chime in once you’ve read it all.

Remember, you don't have to read it straight away, you can choose as a group when's best even if it's a month or two away!

I thought I could convince Popeye to participate in “The Historian” readalong hosted by @anovelfamily and @writerrhiannon but as soon as he heard Dracula was in it, he declined. I don’t know what I was thinking inviting him - he’s the most sensitive of our fur babies, he cries at “Goodnight Moon.” Anyway, this post got away from me. I’m hoping to make a dent in this novel today. I read it a long time ago and enjoyed it so I’m hoping I enjoy it even more the second time around. Are you participating in the challenge or have read this novel? Can’t wait to discuss!

Hey Ya’ll 👋 it’s been a while since my last post! My last door stopper took me a little longer than expected because of my busy schedule...As I finish up #Gonewiththewind, one of #pbsgreatamericanreads I have my next one lined up ready to go, which is another on the list! #Anneofgreengables by #lmmontgomery I’ve only watched the miniseries as a child and can’t wait to dive into this series and read along with my sweet bookish bud @acozyreader. I’ve heard October is the perfect time to start this series...what other fall-ish 🍁 books do you love coming back to during this time of year? Who else is keeping up with @greatamericanreadpbs? Which one is your favorite? 📚 No surprise as to which one 🙋🏼‍♀️I’ve been voting for all along.... 🏖 @sourcebooks

How do you relax and chill out?

We recently watched the Bodyguard as my 86-year-old neighbour kept raving about it, but what else is a must-watch? (Oooo it's so steamy - her words! 😂) Other than reading, I have tended to zone out with YouTube videoes, mainly because they’re shorter than TV programmes and films and you don’t have to concentrate too hard!

So I was very surprised to find a signed copy of @zoella’s new book, which is all about having celebrations throughout the year. That’s something I can get onboard with! It actually looks quite fun and I’m looking forward to putting some of the ideas into practice next weekend when it’s my youngest’s first birthday 😭

The @tanyaburr book I picked up last year and it definitely helped get me into the spirit of Christmas however after two attempts I couldn’t figure out the gingerbread muffins! It felt like the ratio of wet and dry ingrediants was completely out of whack 😕

As to this one by @esteelalonde, I saw it lying around unloved at work so I couldn’t resist picking it up.

I feel like my teenage self would have adored these books so it’s nice to revist that pastime vicariously through these books and YouTube.

Also if you have any of these and want to buddy read them, put your hand up in the comments!

This was such a great read! I honestly didn't figure out what was happening until the end which is great because I can't stand it when books are predictable. Especially ones supposed to be a bit of a mystery 😂

What did you guys think of this book?

📖#currentlyreading📖 👔 #suit 👠by #bbeaston
Expected publication date
October 18th 2018 📚Blurb📚
“Since when are you into guys in ties? You only like guys who look like they rob guys in ties. At gunpoint.” It was true. By 2003, my type had been well-established. There might as well have been a giant sign on my heart that said, Good Guys Need Not Apply.
Which is exactly why I had to friend-zone Ken Easton. The man was a former football star, smelled like fresh laundry instead of stale cigarettes, and had more ties in his closet than tattoos on his knuckles. Pssh. BOR-ING.
But the more I got to know my hunky study buddy, the more questions I came away with. Questions like: Why doesn’t he date? Why does he avoid human touch? Why does he hate all things fun and wonderful?
The psychology student in me became obsessed with getting inside Ken’s head, while the spoiled brat in me became obsessed with getting inside his heart.
In 2003, I found the one thing I love more than bad boys…

A good challenge. .

“Is there more to the story?” Vincent asked.
“There’s more to every story,” his aunt told him.

Welcome welcome!!! It’s time for our second #awesomeafbuddyreads chat!!! We’re talking all things Part Two (and part One for those catching up) of @ahoffmanwriter #therulesofmagic
⚠️⚠️⚠️SPOILERS AHEAD⚠️⚠️⚠️

Despite their best efforts, it seems the Owens siblings can’t escape their fates. Do you think knowing their curse led to it being fulfilled? Or would it have happened no matter what?

If Haylin is truly Frannys true love, how has he escaped death?

What do you think of the curse? Can it be broken?

Do you have any changes of opinion with any characters? If so who and why!

Any predictions???

Don’t forget to join us next week on @hollyslittlebookreviews where we’ll be discussing parts 3 & 4!!!

I thought it would be a good idea to let you all know when the chats are happening in case you fancy joining the buddy reads for any of these books.

Sign up in the comments and I’ll add you to the group chat.

And if you’ve read any, what should they be talking about? Have you got any bookclub-style questions they should discuss?

The books are:

Normal People by Sally Rooney: starting next week
Bear Town by Fredrik Backman: starting next week but reading throughout October and chatting about it the beginning of November

I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai & Christina Lamb: beginning next week

Circe by Madeline Miller: November
