I'm pretty fond of the color green. πŸ’š And green books remind me of spring, which I am BEYOND ready to experience after the snowy winter. πŸ˜‰

FUN FACT 1: I have no white backgrounds in my house. But I love when other people use white backgrounds. So it took me a while but I remembered that I have this dress so yay! (I realise how weirdly I used the word "backgrounds" here. I mean like walls and tables and stuff.
FUN FACT TWO: I laughed so much while reading this book that my family thought I was crazy.
FACT 3: I have no idea why I'm not watching the latest season of her show?
FUN FACT Four: this is The One with Lots of Laughs for #friendsforlife17
β€’β€’β€’
Fact 5: I can never tell how bad the quality of my photos are cos my screen's permanently covered in finger prints or something😡

β€œDon't worry. You're just as sane as I am.” πŸ’™

<Question: What are your favorite candle scents?> β€’

I think mine are more seasonal than anything! I love pumpkin for autumn, pine for winter, flowers for spring, and beach smells for summer. I can't pick a favorite πŸ™ˆ ---------------------------------------------------- Ahhh so I have about 100 pages left in ACOTAR and I'm addicted!! I'm flying through the book and when I'm not reading, I'm thinking about it. I have no idea what's going to happen in the plot but I'm thinking I'll finish the book tonight after I get home from work. ---------------------------------------------------- Remember to tag your photos with #booksfaithlovefeature for the chance to be featured at the end of the month! ----------------------------------------------------- Candle is made by @paperlyandco 😍😍 ---------------------------------------------------- Day 27 | The One with Candles for the #friendsforlife17 challenge

Hi sweet friends!❀ I had a much better night last night so I feel much less grouchy today....πŸ˜‚
What's everyone up to today??
#friendsforlife17- Red Ross.....again I went literal with this challenge showing off Ross with some red books❀ yesterday I was so acting like "Red Ross" being super impatient and a bit scary to deal with. Who knew lack of sleep could turn you into a monsterπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I think I've a new book addiction: Black Penguin Classics. ❀️ Must collect them all! πŸ™ˆ I ordered these for uni essays that I've to write and now I've fallen for their adorableness. At least they are not very expensive... Too bad I'm on a book ban. 😭 No matter how much I love books, being able to make my collection grow every month while attending uni is becoming difficult. So, please, share with me your tips to survive to a book ban - or to at least survive one/two months. πŸ˜‹Also, who loves horror? πŸ™‹πŸ» I currently reading "The Lifted Veil" for an essay on the Gothic genre and I'm quite enjoying it. What are your favourite horror books/short-stories? πŸ‘»πŸ•·πŸ’€

#Friendsforlife17 day 25 was Joey Doesn't Share Food-a book you'd never lend out because you love it so much

This is pretty much hands down Illuminae and Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

This series is EVERYTHING😍 I love it so much and I can't wait for Obsidio, I wish it would be here sooner!

Almost forgot to post these! Better late than never. πŸ˜‰ Some of the books I read in April. πŸ’œ

I managed to read a lot of books this month, 6 is like a record for me. After I finished ACOMAF I wanted some short/easy books, not too deep/intense, until ACOWAR is released. So I decided to read the elite and ended up fly through it and the rest of the series. While they are a bit cheesy/cliche I still really enjoyed them, such a cute and quick read.

I heard Allen Arnold speak at #ACFW2016, and it changed my life. You can have a wound, know you have a bleeding wound, and still be ignoring that gushing wound. God touched my heart, and He and I confronted that wound.
.
All that to say, you MUST read this book. πŸ’œ I can't recommend it enough! It is like a continuation of that life changing day.

How many books did you end up reading in April? Would you rate any of them with five stars? I managed to get through six books, which is slightly more than normal for me I think, and most of them turned out to be really good.

I took this photo about a week ago when I had only read four of the books so I put in the remaining two with the expectation to finish them as well. I did finish two more books, but not the two pictured here πŸ™ˆ So without further ado, my April reads and how I rate them: πŸ“— Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery (reread) - 5+/5 πŸ“— Britt-Marie Was Here by Fredrik Backman - 4.5/5 πŸ“— Island of a Thousand Mirrors by Naomi Munaweera - 4.5/5 πŸ“— At Bertram's Hotel by Agatha Christie - 3/5 πŸ“— Hag-seed by Margaret Atwood - 3/5 πŸ“— A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas - 5/5

Day 30- April Wrap-Up for #dreambunnybookishapril and #aprilglee17 , and The One with April Wrap-Up for #friendsforlife17 !!! I went a little overboard with the flowers, hahaha!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ They all matched the covers, though, lol!! I had tried to take pictures earlier today, but hated all of them and wasn't going to post anything, and then decided to try one more time. This picture turned out better. πŸ™‚ I also read Paris Letters by Janice Macleod on my iPad today. I only read 5 books this month, ugh. I read 10 books each in January, February, and March, so it wasn't my best month. I was in a slump earlier this month, but finally got out of it this last week or two. 5 is still a good number, though! I had so much fun with these book challenges, and I need to figure out which ones I want to participate in this next month! πŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“š #bookchallenge #books #aprilwrapup #alicesadventuresinwonderland #caraval #eleanorandpark #thesunisalsoastar #bookstagram #ilovetoread #booknerd #bookworm #bookaddict #bookish #bookphotography #readersofinstagram #booksbooksbooks

Hey, #bookworms! It's the last day of #FriendsforLife17: The One with April Wrap Up. I read eight books this month, and some of them had hefty page counts, so I'm pleased. Also, the lovely @thebookishmuggleborn tagged me in the #booksandflowers tag! In this #bookstagram, I'm wearing @jeffreestarcosmetics' Velour Liquid Lipstick in #WatermelonSoda. πŸ’‹

Thanks to @books_faith_love for the fun #Friends challenge! πŸ“š

#friendsforlife17 "The One with April Wrap-Up" I've been on a buying ban and one of things that helped was knowing I had #yallwest to look forward to all month! I had no idea I'd come away with THIS MUCH SWAG. (Risa Ridol print not included) I'm honestly overwhelmed and taking it easy today recovering since I was often a fight to the death for things lol Next year I will either clone myself into five people so I can attend panels too. I was going from line to line so totally missed some of the talks! I had a great time meeting people in general - everyone is so nerdily excited about books I loved it!!
🌈🍭
Enjoyed seeing the awesome @bookwnoname and @waitlisted.at.hogwarts who had their schedule down to a science (ask them for tips seriously) .... and was super glad to spend a lot of my line time with the wonderful @sammaybereading! (Check out her @bookmarks_for_kindness - she made the YALL WEST one displayed here!)
🍭🌈
Thanks so much to everyone who worked hard to put on this event, all the volunteers and the publishing companies/book box companies! 🌈🍭
Also many thanks to @books_faith_love for hosting a fun easy Friends challenge for the month of April! I truly enjoyed it and now want to watch the whole show again lol!
🍭🌈
Sorry for giving some of you major #fomo and know all you bookcon attendees will get me back soon! Lol enjoy and 1) ask me anything about the event below and 2) tell me what arcs look interesting or if you've heard of them! ❀
