🌺Good morning, Bookworms!! And Happy Friday to you!! 🌺

Are you excited that the weekend is finally here? I am, mostly because I am super homesick. But I have to tough it out because we still have 2 & 1/2 more days left of our vacation. ☺️ Sigh.

🌺 What are your plans for this lovely Friday, Bookworms?? We are all sunburned and sore, so we plan to check out the stores around the island and buy some souvenirs. Then, hopefully, I can finish my current read. 🤓

Happy Thursday!! Early morning jaunts to the bookstore are always welcome, especially when it means I come home with these two. ☺

Did anyone else venture out for the various Summer Convention Exclusive Pops this morning? Were you successful?
.

#quoththejulybookchallenge {latest purchase} | Not a book purchase, though I did pick up a book for my kids while I was out this morning (The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland).
.
#julyofdisney {to infinity and beyond - book characters you'll love forever} | Too many to count in the LOTR series, but top of my list is definitely the hobbits.
.
#riotgrams {opposites} | The Fellowship definitely has its opposites. 😉

How many books are on your TBR pile? My current one (pictured here, plus another book that didn't make it in!) stands at 35 🙈 That might not seem like a lot to some of you but I had SUCH high hopes of cutting down my tbr pile at the start of this year

#quoththejulybookchallenge Hero or Villain? Good question... hero in Disney, Villain in Once Upon a Time!

This was pretty gripping from the get go. Mariko is on her way to be married when her entourage is attacked. The attackers don’t realise they’ve left her alive and because she is near Jukai Forest she believes the deed has been perpetrated by the infamous Black Clan. Hoping to betray the Black Clan and revenge the deaths of her servants, Mariko makes her way through the forest inserting herself into the group dressed as a boy. Adventures ensue.
I loved that Mariko is not a helpless heroine. Despite the setting, she doesn’t necessarily conform to gender roles of the period, which I appreciated. It is written in such a way that it fits in the narrative and isn’t a contemporary implant into that age. I also liked that matter what situation she gets in and despite at times being harrowing, she is always thinking and intrepid, which was quite refreshing to read. She most definitely displays bushidō!
I adored the setting. So often fantasy, particularly in the YA I come across seems to have a very European backdrop. Japan, the culture and mythology is so rich and I felt how it was portrayed was vivid and exciting. Plus, much sweeping court intrigues and magical elements. I think this reminded me a little of Robin Hood and the rising tide of anger amongst the people against the powers that be. There was a little romance and while the tension ramps up a little towards the end of the book it didn’t feel like a total cliff hanger.

I cannot wait for the next book in the series! B +

7/18/17. Our bags are packed, boxes of souvenirs have been shipped home and now, in just a few short hours, we'll be heading to the airport to catch a flight from my childhood home in Hawaii to my hubby's childhood home in Oregon. The only books I'm taking with me on Part II of our vacation are the two you see in the photo above, which I refer to as The Cat and The Bird.😉
.
Posting may not be as regular during the next week, but I'll try my best. See you all in Oregon!

🌺 Good Thursday morning to you, Bookworms!! 🌺

Do you have a book or series that has been on your TBR for forever?? I have a LOT of those. ☺️ Nothing bothers me more than when I buy a book, then don't have time to read it. There are ALWAYS so many books to read. 🤓
---
📚 *Still* on my TBR. #AlltheBooksJuly
*The Lunar Chronicles* series by Marissa Meyers has been on my TBR for the longest, and I still haven't read it yet. Actually, I read Cinder way back when it first came out, but I barely remember anything about it, so I'd have to reread it before I could start the rest of the series. ☺️
---
📚 Historical Fiction. #quoththejulybookchallenge
I am *really* interested in books about WWII at the moment, so I've been eyeballing a lot of those. 🤓
---
📚 Popular Ship You Don't Like. #julymaiden
Hmmm, I'd have to think about that.

📚 Books You Would Want to Read to Your Kids. #julyinbooks17
The Harry Potter series, of course, which I have read with mine. 😊

✨🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤✨ Hello loves!
How has everyone been? I'm so excited for the weekend! I don't have any plans but I'm happy I don't have to work. I can take care of some much needed errands and figure out which book I'm going to read next!
Also, my best friend and I are challenging ourselves to complete a 31 day yoga challenge. Even though we're in different states, it's so awesome doing this with her. What are some of the things you and your best friend do??
✨🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤✨

Favorite Cover Font- #fanaticalbirdjuly
Country Not Visited- Turkey #bookishgalsjuly
Hero or Villian- Lada is kind of in the between for me. I guess that's the point of her character. She's strong and intelligent but she's not the typical heroine. She can be cruel and cunning and vicious too. I really do love this character though. #quoththejulybookchallenge ✨🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤✨

As I saw the new Spiderman movie 2 days ago, I thought I would dedicate this #FandomFriday to Marvel's heroes and villains. I really like Ironman, Thor and the other Avengers 🤗 My favourite villain is Loki 😍 who's yours?

Day 21 of #quoththejulybookchallenge is #heroorvillain and I would personally love to be a hero!! In Dangerous by Shannon Hale, the main characters become alien-technology enhanced super heros!! That would be so so epic!! 💜💜 So now I ask you the question: would you rather be a hero or a villain? 💜💜 Also, day 21 of #bookiechroniclesjuly is #bestbeginning and this book has me laughing from the first line!! 💜💜 The beginning worthy of today's "best beginning" is "Every superhero has an origin story. Mine began with a box of cereal." 💜💜 Now, if that line caught you as much as it did me, go pick up Dangerous right now!! It is such a fantastic read! 💜💜 #books #booklovers #booklove #reading #shannonhale #dangerous #clover #booksandnature #bookstagram #bookstagramfeature #bookstagramchallenge #bookphotography

Day 21 of #quoththejulybookchallenge: Hero or Villain?
You would think it's obvious who are the heroes and who are the villains in my #currentread 'Salt to the Sea' by Ruta Sepetys and most of the time it is. German soldiers who deny 'subhuman beings' shelter, Russian soldiers who sack and rape... but the four main characters also harbour their secrets, carry their guilt and did horrible things to survive... in war, lines tend to get a bit blurry... I'm about 100 pages in and it's a quick read, due to the short chapters, but it's never easy. Sepetys' language is beautiful nevertheless and I'm already very curious how the story continues and dread it at the same time.

🍒 #dustyshelfproject July 2017 🍒
These are the 3 oldest books on my TBR this month! 📖 My current read is #Revolution by #JenniferDonnelly (which I'm using for #quoththejulybookchallenge Day 20: Historical Fiction)
It follows 2 timelines: Andi is a modern teen who, in the wake of her brothers death, is taken to Paris by her father. The other perspective is from a journal of a girl during the French Revolution, which Andi finds and reads.
I'm about halfway through and enjoying it, although it's pretty dense and I definitely prefer Andi's perspective
•
I've already finished the other 2: #RedGlove (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️) and #TimeBetweenUs (⭐️⭐️)
🎉 Yay for being on top of my challenge this month! 🎉

#quoththejulybookchallenge Day 20: Historical Fiction ----- Anastasia: The Last Grand Duchess, Russia, 1914 (The Royal Diaries)
I have no idea when I acquired this book; I can only assume during an elementary school book fair. However, I read it for the first time around 2010-2011 after watching the 1997 cartoon Anastasia for the umpteenth time. The book is definitely geared towards a younger audience, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. -----

Day 20 of #quoththejulybookchallenge is Historical Fiction.
~
No...I don't have a problem...😮
I read Girl with a Pearl Earring when I was about 12 and also The Other Boleyn Girl. I was hooked. I loved the dresses and mystery and intrigue and balls...I mean royalty and courtly love... I'm a sucker for a historical romance! ~
I was tagged by the lovely @mayushiibooks to do this challenge.
🌟A book that you are too lazy to read: Frankenstein. I don't even know why but every time I pick it up I put it back down again. 🌟A book that made you swoon: I would say Mist and Fury or Wintersong.
🌟A book that you always recommend: Definitely Robert Galbraith/J.K. Rowling's Cormoran Strike series.
🌟A book that you always reread: Dracula.
🌟Fave Author: S J Maas, JK Rowling, J R R Tolkien. 🌟A book that made you fall in love with reading: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. ~
