"You'd better be nice to me or I'll never make you another root beer float again, which means no more root beer float kisses."
He laughed. "That's a little harsh."
"What was your favourite food before root beer floats were invented?"
He gave me a weird look and shrugged. "I don't know. Food was terrible before people started putting lots of chemicals and artificial flavours into it to make it taste better. I guess I've always liked carrots a lot."
"Carrots?" I blurted out, gaping at him. "Your other favourite food is carrots? What is wrong with you?"
"Hey now, you were just getting mad at me for being judgemental. Don't be a hypocrite."

And with this post I was summoning the beautiful, strong, hilarious and forever loyal Guardian that is Will💙
It would've worked too I have tons of root beer in the fridge that I never drink I'd share😂 Especially for root beer float kisses 🤷‍♀️
Happy mid week angels!
A restful day off is what today is and I'm super happy about it; I can hopefully finish my current read and move on to This Fallen Prey!

"You couldn't lose me, Helen. Not even if you tried," he said, pulling on her arm to bring her closer to him. "And for the record I agree with you. I should be more compassionate. I never expected you to think I was perfect. I know I'm not."
"You are to me."
"That's all I care about," Lucas said quietly. "Not-my-cousin Helen."
For just a moment, Helen was scared he wouldn't do it. She'd gotten her hopes up so many times now and been disappointed, that she doubted it would ever actually happen again.
But it did happen.
He buried his hands in her hair, pulled her to him, and kissed her.

Happy Saturday angels!
Spring has officially sprung in my neck of the woods🌹 I went out in the yard exploring the other day [and naturally had to capture some book shots] and these are the prettiest buds of the trees we have 💕
I forget the name of it already🤷‍♀️
This angle too... I am just very happy with the inspiration I got especially since it's been raining today and yesterday😩

One of my favourite retellings ever. It's kind of a mix of The Twelve Dancing Princesses and The Frog Prince and Eastern European folklore and general faerie-ness and you should all go read it. OK? OK.

Green books for #geekyglowreadsspring - I'm going with the theory that if I surround the book with enough green, no one will notice it's not really that green itself. Don't tell anyone!

I highly recommend it!

We see fairy tale retellings all the time, but how about a modern reimagining of a famous historic event? ANNE & HENRY by @dawnmius is a cool modern take on the doomed romance between Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, set at a prep school. I loved seeing how she reimagined their story in a different setting, and how the events of Anne's downfall and Henry's betrayal would play out. .

Breaking the pink/red book streak I've inadvertently been on to read Ann Brashares's most recent novel (it's not that new, I'm just late to the game). Plus my nails match the cover.
It has mixed reviews on Goodreads but if, like me, you are into books told from the perspective of multiple narrators, pay no attention to those.

"'We each have a sorry. They did this to us. There was no outside aggressor. They wanted an Apocalypse. They wanted the end. And they made it happen. It was orchestrated - who got on, who didn't. There was a master list. We weren't on it. We were left here to die. They want to erase us, the past, but we can't let them."

QOTD: What book do you think should be made into a movie/tv show?
🦋
No long caption today, just an epic book recommendation! Pure by Julianna Baggott is exciting, emotional, and engrossing (the 3 Es 😉). I'd recommend it to anyone who likes sci fi and dystopian, if you liked the Hunger Games, Divergent, Under the Dome, or Handmaid's Tale, you'll like this! This would be a great tv show because it's so visual and epic 😍
🦋
Here's a summary:
Pressia barely remembers the Detonations or much about life during the Before. In her sleeping cabinet behind the rubble of an old barbershop where she lives with her grandfather, she thinks about what is lost - - to ash and dust, scars, permanent burns, and fused, damaged bodies. And now, at an age when everyone is required to turn themselves over to the militia to either be trained as a soldier or, if they are too damaged and weak, to be used as live targets, Pressia can no longer pretend to be small. Pressia is on the run.

There are those who escaped the apocalypse unmarked. Pures. They are tucked safely inside the Dome that protects their healthy, superior bodies. Yet Partridge, whose father is one of the most influential men in the Dome, feels isolated and lonely. So when a slipped phrase suggests his mother might still be alive, Partridge risks his life to leave the Dome to find her.

QOTD: What’s a book you think deserves more love?
.
I watched Insidious 3 yesterday with a friend. I’ve only watched the first one and it was literally the dumbest scary movie ever. The third instalment was a bit better, more psychologically twisted, but still pretty silly too. Movies that show actual demonic creatures - can’t really take them seriously. Anyway, in the cinema with us was this group of high school kids, girls and boys, and they were being pretty loud and annoying the whole time. Then when the lights came on, they ran out leaving behind their recliner seats half up and popcorn all over the floor. It was really disgusting. Some people are just gross.
.
#hollysandlisasbookishvalentine / this is for yesterday and today - Aedion (a book that deserves more love) & Nik Malikov (a character with a dark past): A List of Cages is an absolutely brilliant book and deserves all the love. It’s really kind of depressing, and hopeless, but beautiful and hopeful at the same time. Adam and Julian are just gorgeous characters. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.
.
I’ve been asleep all day with a headache. It has not been fun 😭 I hope you’re all well 🌸

Since I was with my upper elementary kiddos yesterday, I did some belated valentine’s day celebrations today with my littles! I was delighted to see treats waiting for me this morning. We’re reading Plant A Kiss, which is by far deepest picture book I’ve ever seen! Concepts of sharing love in this simple book made even my second graders think and led to a great discussion about making friends feel loved 💞 #underratedreads #seasonalspeechtherapy #schoolspeechtherapist #speechlanguagepathology #happyvalentinesday

Hello lovelies! •


Today I'm sending all my love to you guys. I appreciate everything you guys do for me, every conversation, and all the support. Thank you for all the love you give and I hope I can give it back to you. 😘



#frenchiefantasyanniversary : Underrated - The Bird and the Sword is an amazingly underrated book. It's beautifully written with a gripping story and one of my favorite main characters ever.
#printedalphabetxoxo : Swoon Worthy Quotes - "You glow, Lark" "Then why does no one see me?" "I see you"
I was swooning at just about every moment between Lark and Tiras, but this was another level. Lark doesn't get enough love in her own world, although you love her immediately as a reader, so seeing how Tiras recognizes her value is beautiful. His quote gave me chill; the good kind of course.



p.s. (again) I like finding more indie reads and those are usually printed as taller paperbacks. I love using at @book_keeperx mama keeper for these. They are taller than other sleeves and hold my books, and my phone, perfectly. I got this Beauty and the Beast keeper custom made and I love it.

Hey y'all! Happy Monday! We're supposed to be getting 2-4 inches of snow so I'm crossing my fingers that we'll have a delay or cancellation tomorrow😂
❄️
This was another book that I picked up at Half Price Books over the weekend. I've actually never heard of it but the cover caught my attention! The reviews on Goodreads seemed a little mixed but I thought I'd give it a try! The synopsis sounds very interesting! I've been trying to read more science fiction books so this is just perfect! I'm so used to always having ideas of the books I want to read, it's nice to find a new book out there that isn't as well known!

Do you ever pickup lesser-known books? What is your favorite underrated book?!

LAST DAY= Day 30: Pandora Hearts by Jun Mochizuki is an AMAZING sort of dark Alice in Wonderland type action/mystery series. I'd say most manga collectors/readers have/will probably heard of it at some point, but I still decided to put here because I still think it's an #underhypedreads
The fact that I've been dying to show off the #mangaboxset and #mangaart book have nothing at all to do with it...not at all 😅

Day 29: Vagabond by Takehiko Inoe maybe these last two are well-known as underrated but still...I just...you know...😧 I can't.
There are just no words to describe this beauty. The story, the characters, the MIND BLOWING ARTWORK ❤❤❤ (seriously, the scrolling artwork on the spines, the watercolour pictures on the back?!? 😢 I can't).
Just...YOU NEED IT IN YOUR LIFE!! I got the beautiful #photoprint artwork is from #redbubble btw .

Day 28: I totally didn't almost just completely forget to post something today 😅 Today's #underratedmbu is Cross Game by Mitsuru Adachi. I'm pretty sports illiterate, so really didn't care to give this one a try. But changed my mind after reading a convincing review on #myanimelist. This one kinda gets buried under all the other popular #sportsanime, but is one of the best and most well rounded stories I've ever read. It deals with a couple complex themes including tragedy. Totally blew away all my preconceived notions about sports related stories. Loved the anime adaptation too! ❤
Unfortunately I wasn't able to get my hands on the manga to do it justice 😓

Day 19: A MUST READ FOR EVERY BOOKLOVER! Based on a novel that actually influenced media censorship laws, and the freedom of libraries to collect and offer books to the general public. "The Library Freedom Act...Libraries oppose any type of censorship. When libraries are imperiled, librarians will join together to secure their freedom". Library Wars by Kiiro Yumi is about just that.
Follows the first female to join the Library Defense Force set to defend and protect authors and their books from the persecution and book burning following a Media Betterment Act. Of course this is still a shoujo so has a romantic side as well. Even so I still encourage you to check it out!

Day 18 Part Two: Kekkaishi by Yellow Tanabe is a slightly older manga that finished publishing around 2012. Even so I'm really suprised it's not more well known, especially since it has a well done anime by the same name. With the way that ended I NEEDED the manga in my life. SO love where this story! ❤

Day 18 Part One: I just had to post the full series as well. 35 volumes total! Normally I'd just put them both together, but for whatever reason Instagram's giving me hell, so I'm just doing this in two different posts.

Day 17: Dat scrolling art tho 😍💘 ahem...so...Arata: The Legend by Yuu Watase is another surprising read I came across last year. I first heard of it by watching the anime adaptation, which was also surprising cruising under the radar.
So far (I'm only 11vols. in) this has everything you'd want in your typical shounen: plenty of engaging fight scenes, adventure, great protagonist, a gripping storyline, and a hint of romance. The story, at first, may seem over used- high schooler gets unknowingly sucked into a fantasy world-but there were quite a few unique twists. Check out the review on my blog if you'd like to know more!
