Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend!
What book are you dying to read but are intimidated by the sheer size of it?
There's just something about a really good bad guy! These books feature some of my very favorites! I just cant help but root for them a little! I love a smart, complex, mysterious villian, with a powerful backstory and motive. They keep me on my toes and I never know what they're going to do next!

"Cloud steamed from its scales - scales of moonstone, so bright they seemed to glow from within. A crust of gem-like droplets glistened on each one. Each eye was a burning star, and each horn was quicksilver, agleam under the pallid moon."_ Samantha Shannon
OK bookdragons, I finally can see the end of THE PRIORY OF THE ORANGE TREE, I only have 100 pages left and then I'm done. 🎉
This book is incredible, I love the story and the characters so much and I know I'm going to miss them once I finish the book (especially my beloved Fyredel) , but at the same time I need to end it because it took me three weeks to get through all of it.
I never spent so much time over a single book, even if it was thicker and the writing style more difficult I always managed to end it in a week or two. But this time I didn't have the resolve and the force to complete the task, and that unsettles me, I mean I only read a book this month 😭😱!
This week I'll also start reading ACOTAR with my beloved @dreamsinabook . It will be a buddy reading of one of the most popular ya series on the net. I don't know if I'm ready or not, anyway I'm excited about it 😜
QOTD: The book that took you the most to finish?

Shelli Adler has known what she wanted since she was eleven years old.
But Aiden has always had other ideas. After spending the early years of his life without his dad, hockey legend Lucas Brooks, Aiden is determined not to settle for anything less than true love. When he’s ready. Now he’s living the fast life of an NHL bachelor. He won’t give his heart to any one girl, but they can have his body—all night long.
The party to celebrate the start of the second half of the season was supposed to be no different from any other night. And when a stunning stranger approaches him, he can’t seem to keep his hands off her.
The next morning, she’s gone, and he’s been traded to his dad’s former team, the Nashville Assassins. All of his professional dreams are coming true, but he can’t shake the memory of the girl from that last party. He wants to see her again. Though, after moving across the country—and without knowing her name—that dream seems like a puck destined to miss the net.
For Shelli, her night with Aiden was everything she’d ever imagined it could be, and she’s sure it is all about to change for them. But for that to happen…he would have to know who she was.
The Dump was only the beginning. The Chase is worth waiting a lifetime for.

This is my life today and I couldn’t feel happier! Reading my book while my nephew is asleep on me.
It’s the best feeling when your nephew doesn’t feel great and he climbs on your lap and snuggles in and falls asleep. I don’t like that he’s not feeling well but I like that he knows that he can come to me and sit on me and I’ll look after him. That’s the best feeling! I want him to know that I’m always there for him and he can come to me. .

Today started with such lovely sunshine that I just had to snap a few photos!
What are some qualities that books you really like have in common? In other words, what makes a book appealing to you?
I noticed that I tend to like slow-paced books with well-rounded characters, and many seem to include a process of healing as well, like Fangirl or Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine.

Jonas Jonasson's Hitman Anders and the Meaning of it All @ Rs. 640 and Free Delivery in KTM and Major Cities in Nepal.
A madcap new novel from the one-of-a-kind author of The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden
A GANGSTER, A VICAR AND A RECEPTIONIST WALK INTO A BAR... Hitman Anders is fresh out of prison and trying to keep his head down when he meets a female Protestant vicar (who happens to be an atheist) and a receptionist at a 1-star hotel (who happens to be currently homeless). Together they cook up an idea for a very unusual business that’s going to make them all a fortune – but then all of a sudden and to everyone’s surprise, Anders finds Jesus... Anders’ sudden interest in religion might be good for his soul but it’s not good for business, and the vicar and the receptionist have to find a new plan, quick.
As wildly funny and unexpected as The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared and The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden, this is a madcap, feel-good adventure about belief, the media – and the fact that it’s never too late to start again..... #laibarydeals#laibarynp#laibary#nepalreads#bookstagram#bookstagramnepal#bookworm#bookdragons#booknerd#readabook#readingisfun#onlinebookstore#bookoholic#nepalonlineshopping#humor#fiction#contemporary#jonasjonasson#hitmanandersandthemeaningofitall

What are you reading this weekend?
I'm finally starting Our Child of the Stars by @Stephen Cox and I couldn't be more excited 😍
"A lost child, the family who try to protect him and the secret that refuses to stay hidden...
Molly and Gene Myers were happy, until tragedy blighted their hopes of children. During the years of darkness and despair, they each put their marriage in jeopardy, but now they are starting to rebuild their fragile bond.
This is the year of Woodstock and the moon landings; war is raging in Vietnam and the superpowers are threatening each other with annihilation.
Then the Meteor crashes into Amber Grove, devastating the small New England town - and changing their lives for ever. Molly, a nurse, caught up in the thick of the disaster, is given care of a desperately ill patient rescued from the wreckage: a sick boy with a remarkable appearance, an orphan who needs a mother.
And soon the whole world will be looking for him.
Cory's arrival has changed everything. And the Myers will do anything to keep him safe.
(Gifted) Happy Thursday, bookworms!
What book(s) have helped you out of a reading slump?
I took a few days off from bookstagram this week to celebrate my husband's birthday & to give myself a kind of bookish "reset" as lately I've been struggling to get into reading. I've tried to read at least 10 books in the past week, yet for some reason, I couldn't seem to read more than a few pages before losing interest.
This time off has definitely helped as I read Stolen Time by Danielle Rollins this morning & I positively flew through it! It was a quick & easy read & it was just what I needed!
Now I'm excited to pick up some of my discarded books to give them another shot! 😍
I was gifted this ARC FOR free by the publisher.
"Seattle, 1913 // Dorothy is trapped. Forced into an engagement to a wealthy man just so she & her mother can live comfortably for the rest of their days, she’ll do anything to escape. Including sneaking away from her wedding & bolting into the woods to disappear.
New Seattle, 2077 // Ash is on a mission. Rescue the professor—his mentor who figured out the secret to time travel—so together they can put things right in their devastated city. But searching for one man means endless jumps through time with no guarantee of success.

• Now that everyone is starting to get their February @shelflovecrate I thought I would give you a peak at the gorgeous book and the stunning reverse of the dust jacket art by @morgana0anagrom! Shelflove Crate has started releasing their book of the month in advance, so this book was not a surprise but it’s so beautiful in person! Plus is sounds so good- gods, monster, Vikings. What’s not to love? There are some awesome boxes coming up on the next few months- use ESCAPE10 to save on a subscription!⚔️
• Oh my goodness. So I took everyone’s advice and read a different genre and one with a lot of romance- To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. And I LOVED it. It was soooo fluffy and cute and if it’s possible I’ve fallen even more in love with Peter K. Gah. Now I’m going to devour the other two!🍩
• When you read a hard cover do you take the dust jacket off? Or do you prefer a paperback all together?📚
Yay or nay: Yay a million times.
I really hated this book because it made me cry so much.There is such a beauty in the sadness of this novel, the way it's told, the natural style of the writing being so elegant and pure.
Kya lives in North Carolina marshes with her family. They live in a shack, isolated and away from civilization. The disease of the family is Pa, who drinks himself away, and the burden is on their mother's shoulders. One day mother walks away. Kya spends the rest of her life instinctively believing her mum will come back. .
Starting from mid 50s and reaching to 60s, story tells Kya growing up, filling the absence of people who abandon her with marshes and nature, learning "how to be" all by herself. Her loneliness is devastating, but her will to survive is equally mesmerising
In parallel to Kya's coming of age story, the novel goes back and forth to 1969- a guy called Chase Andrews is found dead near a fire tower which leads to a murder investigation.
An unstoppable read, I melted into the story line and the pages absorbed me as I absorbed this beautiful book. .
The only thing I could fault was the dialogue with grown up and teenage Kya. For a person almost alone and away from people all her life, I found her speech too normal, too street smart (she knew too much about life she hasn't lived!) So that's the reason of 4.5 stars and not 5.
Where the Crawdads sing is storming the Bookstagram and especially friends in States were posting so much about it, so I am glad they did and inspired me to read this book.
I would recommend this novel to everyone, grab it one night and enjoy in one sitting.
