Helloooowwww 🙋🏽‍♀️
Just found this picture I was meant to post two weeks ago so yay to me for not having to take a pic today ! 🙈 Guys , today I didn’t really feel that well and took wayyyy too many naps hahaha now I literally feel like a new person ! Tonight I decided I should have some me time and do a hairmask while reading 😌 I might even do a little storytime on my story if I’m feelin a bit extra or maybe just answer some questions hahaha so watch out for that ! 😏



Q: What is your favorite movie ? 🎥 🍿 •

Mine is ‘the corpse bride’ by Tim Burton 💕 Like most of you might know it by now I am a total freak for cartoons and all kinds of animated stuff so my list of fav movies is veryyy long. But the Corpse Bride has always been my NUMBA ONE ! I’ve always been fascinated by Burton’s works. His movies always so magical and fascinating to look at ! So yeah, if you haven’t seen the Corpse Bride yet, you should most definitely check it out 🖤 ! •

Our Woman Crush this Wednesday is Tomi Adeyemi, the author of fantasy novel Children of Blood and Bone.
.
After graduating Harvard University with an honors degree in English literature, Tomi Adeyemi received a fellowship that allowed her to study West African mythology and culture in Salvador, Brazil
.
At only 25, she published her first novel, Children of Blood and Bone, in March 2018 and it skyrocketed to number one on The New York Times Young Adult Hardcover Bestseller List. It stayed on the list for 25 weeks straight. Before it was even released, she had scored the high-profile book deal and seven-figure movie deal off the back of her debut.

I'm having a bad week and that always fuels negative thoughts. So here is a list of positive things that will hopefully cheer me up:
1. Choir rehearsals have started again which means more music in my life 🎤
2. My ukelele skills are slowly improving 🎶
3. Autumn is approaching which means warm sweaters, candles and autumn spices 🍄
4. And an autumn Intagram feed, which is always fun to photograph 🍁
5. I get to spend quality time with my family in October on a weekend trip 🏘
.
What do you do to keep yourself from thinking negative thoughts? Tell me in a comment! #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookfeaturepage #bookphotography #igreads #reading #book #books #thewickeddeep #childrenofbloodandbone #sheaernshaw #tomiadeyemi #nikond5300

I can’t think of a caption today - my brain has turned to mush 🧠

So hope you’re all having a lovely week 💖

Someone save me from this semester or change the earth’s rotation so I have extra hours in a day please... I’ll take either solution. 💙📖💙
#beardyscript -you’re a pirate now: literally so excited to see that one scene on the big screen.
#geekyglowreadskmk - Rowan, Chaol, Dorian: I’m not sure about the romances in this book (a lil too instant for my taste) but I feel like that works for this prompt because the romances in SJM books don’t make sense to me either 🤷‍♀️😅😂. #readgushsept18 - talk like a pirate day in honor of... a certain maybe spoilery thing for this book. 💙📖💙

#QOTD : What song is currently your favourite?
.
Songs on repeat right now :
5SOS - Youngblood
DAY6 - I Need Somebody
Imagine Dragons - Natural
.
I am absolutely in love with these songs right now. Youngblood's mv is also crazy good.
.
I hope you all are having a great time. I've FINALLY written a bit. It was only about 800 words but it's something. I'm also thinking about learning to dance with a friend of mine. She's a ballerina and an acrobat and modern dancer. I know, crazy. But I'm hoping she can teach me a bit.

So, people, you know I stan HARD for children of Blood and Bone. Myself and and fellow co-host of @nabookpodcast recorded a live episode with the author, @tadeyemibooks, which was all kinds of amazing (swipe right for visuals of the fun that was had in Bristol).
💫💫
Good news, peeps! The episode has been released and it is faaanblaaardytastic.
💫💫
#TomiAdeyemi was all kinds of generous with her knowledge, she gave fantastic insight into her inspiration and motivations for writing the book, we discussed the positively #CoverHoe(ism) of #CBB. I mean, come on, there was no way I’d ever discuss #ChildrenOfBloodAndBone without mentioning it’s Bookgasmic cover.
💫💫
BTW: Tomi’s explanation of the decision to settle on that particular cover is worth a listen!
💫💫
Special shout out to @wannabepodcast @xnikkiyx ( for @thebookbanque) who made the day all the more special with their wonderful company ❤️❤️
💫💫
The episode is now available on your fave podcast platforms (including Spotify). Listen and get your everlasting life! Link in bio.

Q: What are some inspiring reads you love!?
❤ I picked COBAB. I just felt Zélie was super inspiring.
-
Good evening!

This prompt is #inspiringreads per #jcfseptember!

I just can't seem to get around to post! I keep starting to post this and never make it very far. So here I am at nearly 3am posting. Haha.
-
They killed my mother.
They took our magic.
They tried to bury us.

Now we rise.

Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.

But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.

Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.

Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers and her growing feelings for an enemy.

hello bookworms!! alright so i’m finally going to talk about children of blood and bone and why i freaking loved it!! so first off, character development i am absolutely blown away by the life adeyemi put into each one of her characters even baba, mama agba, the king, mama, and other characters that have even less of a presence in the story along with the major ones that we all know and love. the dynamics between zélie and tzain versus inan and amari are fascinating and the way they’re put up against one another in the text there’s no way you can’t compare them especially with the extremes the brothers go to for their sisters; with tzain’s overprotectiveness and inan’s somewhat twisted suppression of his magic to protect others after the incident. also, the way that the novel is written doesn’t make it seem too weird that the amari and zélie are practically dating each other’s brothers in fact, adeyemi’s world building was so thorough that it seemed more unnatural that a maji and kosidán (zélie and inan) were romantic than anything else surrounding all the relationships. overall, this novel did not disappoint , actually it did because i wasn’t immediately able to get a sequel after adeyemi ended it with a cliffhanger, but aside from that it was amazing and creates a whole new culture before your eyes and just know you’ll never hear the word maggot and just think of a fly ever again. 5/5 definitely worth the read the hype is real lol and if you go to my feed the covers are simply breathtaking!! psa- this pic is of two dark reigns in the korean district because i went to get pho for dinner haha and it doesn’t have anything to do with the caption.
QOTD: which otp zélie and inan or tzain and amari??

This was the book I was reading while taking #OpalCharm revision breaks so of course I had to make a post about this brilliant, amazing beautiful debut novel. Children of Blood and Bone is one of my top books (for forever 💜) I made a long ass Goodreads review gushing over this story, the characters, and the diversity so I'll keep it short and sweet here: you gotta read this book!✨🔥💥💥✨

“I teach you to be warriors in the garden so you will never be gardeners in the war.” -Tomi Adeyemi, Children of Blood and Bone
.
QOTD: Do you like reading series that are already finished, or do you prefer ongoing series?
.
I finished Children of Blood and Bone last night and I AM SHOOK. I bought it pretty soon after it released earlier this year, but for some reason it’s taken me this long to pick it up. Part of me is berating myself for not reading it sooner while the other half of me is thanking myself for shortening the wait time between CoBaB and the sequel coming out next year!
Even though wait times between releases will probably kill me one day, I actually do like reading ongoing series! I love the anticipation of waiting for the next book to release, the speculation of trying to guess what will happen, and the chance to reread the first few books in the series over and over again in preparation for the next installment!
.
PS check out that gorgeous Bone Season bookmark from @lovelybookishmarks ! It has one of my favorite quotes of all time! Use my code THOUSAND15 to save on your order!
.
#bookreadhappyhour an unfinished series - all these series are unfinished at the moment.

This is where I'll be for the next 525 pages. DO NOT DISTURB #childrenofbloodandbone #tomiadeyemi #goodreads #bookstagram 😊❤📚

Hello everyone!😀
I hope you all had a spectacular Tuesday! .
These are all books I really enjoyed that are red and black. For some reason that seems to be publishers favorite color for best selling books, but hey, I'm not complaining! .
.
Children of Blood and Bone was fantastic! I still think about the story and the themes and I can see why @tadeyemibooks got a movie deal as well! I think this could be translated so well into film! And I am also already highly anticipating the sequel next year.😊
.
You probably know my feelings on Six of Crows. I love it and think its absolutely wonderful. This duology made @lbardugo one of my favorite authors of all time and I can't wait for King of Scars in January! The characters are fantastic and the plot is perfectly paced!
.
If you didn't know, @therealsjmaas is my favorite author and I go back and forth on whether ACOTAR or ToG is my favorite. They both have great qualities and I can never really choose😂 I'm excited to see how the continuation goes in the new ACOTAR series. .
.
Vicious was the first @veschwab book I read, but it absolutely made me want to read more. There are such complex characters and stories in this book! I am so excited for Vengeful later this month!!
