Reposted from @lexlaughs BREATHLESS EXCERPT: I’m not proud that conversation sent me into a tailspin. You’d think after years of running into girls who’d banged Logan, I’d be used to it, but this week has messed with my heart. We’d been having so much fun together since I got home. Like we were in our own little bubble.� And that’s the problem.� This, my time visiting, is a façade. It’s not real. I don’t live with Logan, and I’m not his girlfriend, as much as I’d like to be, and no amount of wishing for that is going to transform him into my Prince Charming. The sooner I come to terms with that, the better off I’ll be. �Easier said than done. Have you gotten Breathless yet?

🤯 when you read a psychological thriller, heart-breaking contemporary novel, Greek mythology, & a chilling supernatural mystery all in one week • SO grateful for some time off work to make my way through my tbr pile 📚 but WOW I need another break to recover ! . . . thank you @netgalley @stmartinspress & @bookofthemonth for these incredible books

En fazla okuduğum yazarlardandır Z. Livaneli. Bu kadar değerli eserler üretebilen sanatçıları, daha sonra her ne sebeple olursa olsun siyasetçi kimliğiyle görmek de beni hep rahatsız etmiştir. . Tam da bu konuyu soruyorlar bir röportajda Livaneli’ye; . SORU: Siz neden siyasette başarılı olamadınız ve küstünüz siyasete? * Zaten siyaset benim doğama aykırı! “Denize kim itti beni?” durumu oldu. Çıkar ilişkilerinin egemen olduğu siyaset dünyasında başarılı olmam mümkün değildi. Ayrıca siyasi bir ihtirasım olmadı hiç. . SORU: Başarılı bir siyasetçi olmayı, başarılı bir romancı olmaya tercih eder miydiniz? * Hiç karşılaştırılır mı? Elbette romancı olmaktır cevabım. Kendimi çok küçük yaşlardan beri edebiyatla, kitapla ifade etmeyi seçtim. Hatta notalardan önce kelimeler vardı diyebilirim. Bu yüzden her zaman edebiyatçı olmayı yeğleyeceğim. . . . #zülfülivaneli
Remember back when Prince William was about to marry Kate Middleton and people were pretty excited about it but they seemed to be equally, if not more, obsessed with the idea that Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton might be next? At the time Rachel Hawkins said something on Twitter about writing THAT story and I immediately wanted to read it, but it was only an idea at that point.⠀ Then she wrote the thing and somehow I completely missed it when it came out in 2018 (then titled Royals ) and didn’t hear about it until it was re-released as PRINCE CHARMING. I finally read it and I loved the choices she made for this story; it was as snarky and witty and swoony as I expected. I already have the follow up book (focused on the princes’ sister ) in my hands. #ejcreads2020 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #bookstagram #bookworm #bibliophile #booknerd #booklove #bookgram #booksofinstagram #totalbooknerd #instareads #amreading #bookish #read #booknerdigans #readmorebooks #alwaysreading #bookstagrammer #igbooks #booklife #readeveryday #readinglife #igreads #ilovebooks #readersofinsta #bookcommunity #readstagram #yalovin #ireadya #happyreading
does this count as a shelfie? i don't really have any bookshelves here. every other week i re-organise my "bedside table" aka windowsill. usually i stack my books there, but there's now so many that i had to put them all standing up. they function as a sort of tbr. i do hope to read these books next and in that order, but i tend to just see what i feel like cos it rarely ever works out. i start out excited and then can't stand the restriction. (you know how there's like two personality types? yeah, i'm both. or neither. and i'm kind of like that in every aspect of life? ) they're mainly a motivation for me to keep going through tougher reads tbh. and they're pretty and great fun to plan. i just love to look at books and imagine that one day i will have read all of these. what i love about the bedside sill: plants. playing cards used as bookmarks. vintage glasses. keyboard right by my bed. eating chocolate in bed and not having to get up cos there's a small bin beside me. #bookstagram #bookstagramgermany #bibliophile #bookish #bookworm #bookphotography #booksofinstagram #book #bookgram #instareads #bookaesthetic #reader #reading #tbr #shelfie #shelfiesaturday #reading #bookmark #vintage #janeausten #beatgeneration #artemis #janeeyre #bronte #wildergirls #1984 #georgeorwell #theotherpeople #cjtudor #chinuaachebe

Screw the two-hundred dollars; what I really want to collect is him.” Being a gossip columnist is a tough biz. When I discover the world’s richest criminal has a secret child, I leap at the chance to cozy up with him for a scoop. There are worse ways to pay for my kid’s corn flakes than "dating" the hottest single dad in the universe. Sure, with his criminal past, there’s a lot at stake if he finds me out. But that doesn’t scare kick-butt journalists like me. It’s the falling in love part that has me shaking in my heels. If I don’t get my hands on a scoop soon, I’ll be out of a job, but my hands are interested in playing with other things.

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running Author: Haruki Murakami Genre: Memoir Original Language: Japanese Original Title: 走ることについて語るときに僕の語ること (Hashiru Koto ni Tsuite Kataru Toki ni Boku no Kataru Koto ) Translated by: Philip Gabriel Pages: 180 Published in: 2007 (JP ); 2008 (US ) Goodreads Rating: 3.84/5 Personal Rating: 3.9/5 What I Talk About When I Talk About Running is a memoir by Haruki Murakami in which he writes about his interest and participation in long-distance running. Murakami started running in the early 1980s and since then has competed in over twenty marathons and an ultramarathon. The book's title was inspired by Raymond Carver's collection of short stories entitled What We Talk About When We Talk About Love. Haruki Murakami is an amazing writer. He is simple lingual, extremely convenient to read. He never says too much, or too little; just as much as needed. Which makes him one of my favorite writers. I believe, he cannot ever disappoint me. From this belief I picked up this book. And wasn't disappointed at all. Now that I have read the book, I want to run and think what I think when I think about running. (I had the same question on my mind for a long time, what really do I think about when I'm walk. P.S. I prefer to walk whenever I can. ) Some Quotes from the book: Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional. The most important thing we ever learn at school is the fact that the most important things can't be learned at school. So the fact that I’m me and no one else is one of my greatest assets. Emotional hurt is the price a person has to pay in order to be independent. Nothing in the real world is as beautiful as the illusions of a person about to lose consciousness. When people pass away, do their thoughts just vanish? #bookstagram #bookstagrambd #bookstagrambd 🇧🇩 #bookaholic #bookaddict #booklover #booklovers #booknerd #igreads #instareads #readersofinstagram #literature #harukimurakami #whatitalkaboutwhenitalkaboutrunning #memoir #bibliophile #readingishealing #goodreads #books #bookworm #Books #bookoftheday #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram

favourite book as a film or tv series? 💌 to me, it usually depends on the book, but majority of the time - tv series with approx 10 episodes per season! love those kind of shows. although sometimes a film is just as good of a choice: exhibit a - ‘to all the boys i’ve loved before’. i also remember loving ‘interview with a vampire’ (both film&book ) but i cannot remember anything from it besides the very beginning and one specific scene about cutting hair haha... btw! so! damn! excited! for! shadow&bone! netflix! series! . . #bookstagrammer #amreading #justread #books #bookstagram #unitedbookstagram #bookishphotography #yabooks #ireadya #bookish #bibliophile #igreads #reading #instareads #knygos #interviewwithavampire #vampires #thebeautiful #reneeahdieh #shadowandbone #netflix #tatbilb #toalltheboysivelovedbefore

The only thing better than Saturday is... #StepbackSaturday 😍😍😍 🌸 How’s your Saturday? Do you have any weekend plans? 🌸 I’m listening to the book with the lovely stepback featured above. Crazy, but I’ve never tried listening to audiobooks before and honestly... wow, my life has been incomplete before. I am a changed woman. The multitasking possibilities are ENDLESS. 🌸 I’m also trying to get crafty today 🤣 If you’ve seen my previous stories, I’ve been talking about going to a formal ball later in the week. And I’m attempting some table decorations and I think(???? ) it’s going well, but don’t you just hate glue gun burns and those stringy bits of dried glue that go EVERYWHERE?!?!!!! 🌸 Hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
The maintenance guy recognized my #forgottenrealms bookshelf and he doesn't know it yet but we are new best friends 😂
I still remember the first time I read Shadowfever. Falling deeper and deeper into Barrons and Mac's world. Desperate to see their story unfold more. This scene... you can't explain it. You can't understand it unless you've read the previous books in the series. What it truly means.

Happy Saturday everyone! I want to share a stack of one of my favorite author(s ) today for #stackyourauthor King is an absolute master at his art and his son is just as brilliant. I read NOS4A2 last year and it blew my mind. I was even more blown away when I discovered Joe Hill is Stephen King’s son, but honestly it makes sense. I don’t really scare easily but I feel like both King and Hill have given me nightmares before and if that doesn’t make you a successful horror writer then I don’t know what does. Also this stack is making me realize how little Joe Hill I actually have. BRB buying more Joe Hill... Have you read any Stephen King or Joe Hill? If so what are your favorite books by them?
Happy Saturday, bookworms! ~~~ QOTD: Let’s talk, all the feels! What was the last book that you read that gave you all the feels? ~~~ ~~~ Thanks so much to Marisol @HarperCollinsCa and @msanitakushwaha for graciously sending us a copy. We are absolutely honored to have been asked to share this book with all of you. I will be reading this book very soon so stay tuned for my review. ~~~ SECRET LIVES OF MOTHERS & DAUGHTERS by ANITA KUSHWAHA Book Blurb ⬇️ from @goodreads For readers of Shilpi Somaya Gowda’s "Secret Daughter" and Nancy Richler’s "The Imposter Bride", a breathtaking novel from Anita Kushwaha about the ties that bind mothers and daughters together and the secrets that tear them apart Veena, Mala and Nandini are three very different women with something in common. Out of love, each bears a secret that will haunt her life—and that of her daughter—when the risk of telling the truth is too great. But secrets have consequences. Particularly to Asha, the young woman on the cusp of adulthood who links them together. On the day after her eighteenth birthday, Asha is devastated to learn that she was adopted as a baby. What’s more, her birth mother died of a mysterious illness shortly before then, leaving Asha with only a letter. Nandini, Asha’s adoptive mother, has always feared the truth would come between them. Veena, a recent widow, worries about her daughter Mala’s future. The shock of her husband’s sudden death leaves her shaken and convinces her that the only way to keep her daughter safe is to secure her future. Mala struggles to balance her dreams and ambition with her mother’s expectations. She must bear a secret, the burden of which threatens her very life. Three mothers, bound by love, deceit and a young woman who connects them all. Secret Lives of Mothers & Daughters is an intergenerational novel about family, duty and the choices we make in the name of love. ~~~ Plan on reading, have read, &/or on your TBR?

Certain barriers will always be there. Who said life can ever be fair? It doesn’t matter what you can’t bear. You want a ticket? Beware! If you don’t belong here, you don’t belong anywhere. Joy and peace are not the perfect pair. Pick one, the other will flare. So just take your share. Even when it’s fair, it will always be unfair. #iRead #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramfeature #bookworm #bookishfeatures #reading #tbr #currentlyreading #instabooks #instareads #igreads #booksofinstagram #booksofig #bookworm #bibliophile #bookish #booklove #reader #read #bookishfeature #booksofinta #bookerdigans #bookaddict #books #bookstagram #bookworm #book
“Pain is energy. It lights us. This is the most basic premise of our life. Hunger makes us eat. Tiredness causes us to sleep. Pain makes us avenge.”— The Deep by Rivers Solomon 🌊 I picked up The Deep as a #blackhistorymonth read for several reasons: 🖤BLACK MERMAIDS!! 🖤Memory keepers 🖤Examination of slavery told via metaphorical fantasy 🖤Lyrical, gorgeous prose 🖤Novella length 🌊 But this novella was so much more than I imagined. Probably the biggest point of this review that I can’t stress enough is that this book is more of a feeing than linear story. It is an atmospheric and conceptual work of fiction based on a song of the same name by the band Clipping. The writing is lyrical and flowery and so, so beautiful. You will literally feel immersed in this world. 🌊 Yetu is the memory keeper for her people—the water-dwelling descendants of pregnant African slaves thrown overboard during the middle passage. She holds ALL memories from the unmitigated joyful memories to the darkest depths of trauma and pain. The trauma of the population’s past existence is too much to bear, so she sets off in a journey to discover the world her people had left behind. This is where she finds herself and a way forward for her people. 🌊 This is simply a book you just experience. It is unlike anything I have ever read. The closest analogy I can make to it is The Giver but that is just selling this tiny novella full of such BIG ideas so very short. This book will stay with you long after you finish reading it. 🌊 ALSO THE DEEP IS LESS THA $2!!!!

QOTD: Do you prefer to read books which came out the same year or do you not care about reading past books?⠀ 👑 ⠀ I always feel like I should be reading books the same year they come out, but half the time I just can’t get to them! At the end of the year when everyone’s talking about the best books of 2019 or whatever, this is me: 👀 ⠀ 👑 ⠀ On the other hand, it is always fun to be able to binge read a series rather than having to wait for every book to come out and forgetting half the stuff in between! I read the Last Namsara like that, and it was amazing!⠀ 👑 ⠀
qotd // what’s a series or trilogy that surprised you? either in a good way or a bad way? ✨ i wasn’t too sure i would like the renegades trilogy but tbh they’ve been some of my favorite reads in a long time. i put the last book on hold while i catch up on ARCs but i can’t wait to read supernova and see how it all ends!
Simplemente Lemebel ❤

"Kız ve erkek kardeşler,ömür boyu birbirine sadık..." . -Jessica Townsend/Wundersmith- Çok büyük bir merakla beklediğim ikinci kitap geldi ve tabi ki hemen okudum.🙃 Morrigan beni yine bilmediğim, şaşırdığım, heyecanlandığım, korktuğum, mutlu olduğum inanılmaz bir dünyanın içine çekti ve orada onunla olmaktan çok mutlu oldum çünkü Morrigan yıllarca lanetli olduğunu düşünen, sevilmeyen 11 yaşında bir kızdı. Kimsenin onu sevmeyeceğini, korumayacağını ve en önemlisi asla bir aileye sahip olamayacağını düşünüyordu. İlk kitapta kendine dair gerçekleri öğrendi, yeni bir evrenle tanıştı ama en büyük gerçeğini kabullenemedi ve sevemedi. Wundersmith kitabında ise artık derslerine başlayan ve okulu ile ilgilenen bir Morrigan karşımızda ama tabi ki en büyük gerçeği asla peşini bırakmıyor ve onu inanılmaz maceralara sürüklüyor. Her zamanki gibi yanında Jupiter, Fenestra, Jack, Hawthorne var ama hani bazı şeyleri tek başımıza yapmak zorunda kalırız ya, işte Morrigan tam da böyle bir şeyin içinde. Gerçek kimliği ile tek başına mücadele etmek zorunda. Bu maceraya mutlaka eşlik edin.😊

oh look, it’s a new theme ✨ it was time for a change. in fact—I’ve been craving one. I’ve been using the same warm filter for over a year now, and it’s time to switch things up! Especially now that spring is coming soon 💐 . . Qotd—are you a fan of change when it comes to your IG account, or do you prefer when things stay the same? I’m all for change! I get so bored when things stay the same all the time 😂 I always like to switch things up and makes things interesting. In other news, i am back in the reading game. I’m probably going to finish 2 books today after I get pasta with a friend of mine. And then it’s back to the coffee shop to write! My creative flow is back and I’m one happy girl. If I can finish my WIP in 2020, it will be a great year ✨ hope you all have a lovely day! • • #bookish #bookstagram #booklover #bookaddict #book #reading #ireadYA #bookphotography #bookworm #bookblogger #bibliophile #booknerdigans #booksofinstagram #booklove #yabooks #bookishfeatures #bookstagramfeature #bookaholic #currentlyreading #fiction #yareads # #instareads #bookstagrammer #reader #epicreads #yalovin #yalit #booknerd #goodreads
• b o o k r e v i e w • Le Secret du Faucon Tome 1 - A.D Martel 3,5/5 - ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 Je remercie grandement @ad_martel de m’avoir fait découvrir son roman médiéval fantasy. Ce fût une agréable lecture grâce à la plume de l’auteure qui est très fluide et qui se lit très facilement. J’ai notamment beaucoup apprécié la façon dont elle décrit les actions qui rendent vraiment le récit vivant et qui permettent une bonne projection! L’héroïne du roman, Cyrielle est très attachante et l’on suit ses aventures et ses mésaventures avec entrain. Je suis plus mitigée concernant l’histoire général du roman, il démarre très bien spécialement lors de son arrivée au château avec ces événements mystérieux qui se produisent puis le suspense retombe vite et est complètement mis de côté à mon grand regret pour finalement refaire son apparition à la toute fin... . Si vous souhaitez acheter ce roman, il est disponible uniquement sur Amazon • Bonne soirée les bookaddicts 🌈 🇬🇧 The Falcon’s secret Book 1 - A.D Martel 3,5/5 - ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 I thank @ad_martel very much for introducing me to her historical fantasy novel. It was a pleasant reading, especially the author's pen which is very fluid and easy to read. I particularly appreciated the way she describes the actions that really make the story come alive and allow a good projection! The heroine of the novel, Cyrielle, is very endearing and we follow her adventures and misadventures with enthusiasm. I’m more mixed about the general story, it starts very well especially when she arrives at the castle with these mysterious events that occur and then the suspense falls quickly and is completely put aside, to my deep regret to finally reappear at the very end... . If you wish to buy this novel, it’s only available on Amazon. • Good evening bookaddicts 🌈
Buraya şöyle zarif bir kitaptan sevdiğim alıntıyı bırakıyorum🌸 kendinizi sevmeniz dileğimle🌟 - Dünyaya gönderilmeseydim kendimin farkında olmayacaktım. Dahası, bir zerre olarak bile kâinatta bulunamayacaktım. Asla bir bedenin içinde olmanın tadına varamayacaktım, nefes almanın kıymetini bilemeyecektim çünkü hiçbir şey olacaktım. Ama O beni bırakmadı, razı gelmedi isimsiz-cisimsiz olmama. Beni yarattı. Bana bir beden verdi ve kulları arasına girip O’nu tanımam için bir şans verdi. Kimse beni beğenmese de O beni beğendi, kimse bana değer vermese de O beni değerli kıldı, kimse beni sevmese de O benim başıboş ve kimsesiz kalmama razı olmadı ve sohbetine layık gördü. Yani dostlar; O bizi çok sevdi. O bizi bu kadar sevmişken kendimizi sevmemek vefasızlık olmaz mı? Ben kendimi seviyorum, Yaradan’dan ötürü. Ve bir yolculuğa çıkıyorum. Bu yolda en çok da kendimi olduğum gibi sevmek istiyorum. “Kendini okyanusta bir damla sanma. Bir damlanın içinde kocaman bir okyanussun.” Rumi . #biryolculukturaşk #hayykitap
Herkese se lam! Ben geldiim, hem de kitap yorumuyla geldim. 🤓 Bu akşam biraz Mühürlenmiş Bedenler hakkında konuşacağız. Öncelikle şunu söylemek istiyorum, @can .dikmenli2 tanıdığım en tatlı insanlardan biri ama sakın alınma Can, asla böyle bir kitap beklemiyordum! Beklentimin çok çok üstündeydi. Benim için çıtayı nasıl birden iki üç kalem üste çıkardığını belirtmeden edemeyeceğim! 🤩 Konusundan bahsetmem gerekirse, arkadaşları ve beraber yaşadığı teyzesi ile normal bir hayat süren Olivia'nın zamanı geldiğinde yarı cadı yarı insan olduğunu öğrenmesi ile kendi kehanetinin peşinden koruyucusu Walterfan ile birlikte koştuğu; sırlarla, acılarla ama aşkla dolu macerasını okuyoruz. 💜 Maalesef ülkemizde yerli ve genç yazarlara karşı büyük bir önyargı var, özellikle konu bilim kurgu&fantastik olduğunda. Ve Mühürlenmiş Bedenler Can'ın ilk kitabı. Bu yüzden okumaya başladığımda yazım hataları ve basit bir kurgu bekliyordum, inkar edemem. Beni o kadar çok şaşırttı ki bunu kendisine de sürekli söyledim. Kitap harika bir kurguya sahip, dili gayet akıcı, fantastik bir kitap olmasının yanında dozunda bir aşk hikayesi var, ben nasıl okuyup bitirdiğimi anlamadım bile! Benim için en önemli olan noktalardan biri ise karakter gelişimi, okurken karakterlerin hangi noktadan nerelere geldiğini göremediğim kitapları maalesef sevemiyorum ve Mühürlenmiş Bedenler'de karakter gelişimleri öyle güzel işlenmişti ki, evet baş karakterimiz çok güçlü bir kadın ama ben o kadının nasıl o kadar güçlü hâle geldiğini biliyorum dedirtti. Ayrıca okurken bazı kısımlarda Twilight esintileri hissettim ve o kadar hoşuma gitti ki, çok sevdim ya çok! İkinci kitap bir sonraki Tüyap zamanı ellerimizde olacakmış duyduğuma göre ama nasıl bekleyeceğim bilmiyorum. 🤭 Kalemine sağlık @can .dikmenli2 💜
Murakami, I am really sad to say that I am slightly glad to be done with this massive volume! Book 1 and Book 2: done! Book 3 to go! 🙈 If you’ve been following around for a while, you probably know that the Japanese writer, Haruki Murakami, is my favorite male writer alive. But, as I said, when I posted about 1Q84 Book 1, I can see flaws in Murakami’s writing even though I am a fan of his work. I also told you that I didn’t want to write a proper review until I finish the book entirely so I still need to read Book 3 before sharing my final thoughts. 💭 • Here’s a quick summary of what I gathered throughout these 800 pages: We’re in Tokyo, in 1Q84 (yes, this is a dystopian novel! ) and a lot is happening during the fictionalized year of 1984 (Hi, Orwell 🙌 )The plot follows the lives of two characters: Tengo and Aomame. Initially, they have nothing in common but, during Book 2, their storylines come together. After a long and strong story that explores abuse, punishment and redemption, the characters notice a second moon which reminds them of the alternate reality in which they’re living. • Although I find the whole concept incredibly interesting I couldn’t stand Tengo and his pedophilic behaviour. 😅 I thought 'Maybe in Book 2 it won’t be just as bad'. Oh, well, it just got worse! I need a break between the books so I will only pick volume 3 in March! 😆 • How do you feel about Murakami's work? I love talking to you about him! • • #amolivros #bookslover #booksarelife #bookaholic #bookphoto #booksofinstagram #bibliophile #bookholic #bookgram #bookaddiction #bookaddicted #instareads #bookclub #bookblogger #livrosemaislivros #bookcover #beautifulbooks #booktag #bookobsessed #bookstagram #booklover #bookworm #readeveryday #readeverywhere #allthebooks #vscobooks #harukimurakami #frenchmood #vintagestyle #bookreview
