📚 Do you have a favorite Weasley? I would say Ginny, or Molly are my favorites. They are so strong in different ways. Also, warm, light hearted, and fierce! Honestly, all of them have such wonderful attributes! There is going to be a Ginny trading card in the upcoming Litjoy Magical Crate and I am so ready to add her! She even has a little pygmy puff! 😍😍 #aprilbookstagram19 10. Favorite siblings. Yeah, so it comes as no surprise when I say my favorite siblings are the Weasleys. I have always wanted to be apart of their family. I lucked out because my husband's family is basically the Weasley family!
#booknerdsmar19 10. Wick Wednesday. @roseandadder, former known as Lemoncakes, had a Burrow candle box put out last year. I was lucky enough to be gifted it by @theanimagusblack and it is perfection! Even the older brothers were represented in the box! I wish they had been in the movies more. Eh, oh well.
Happy sunday! I just finished A Darker Shade of Magic. It was a challenge from @ileesclub#ileesclubbookstagramchallenge
so i was down! We had to read it in 16 days, how hard could it be right?
Wrooong! It took me 14 days to read the firts 100 pages, the story would just not grown on me. But then it took me only 2 days to read the next 300 pages. 😂 I fell in love with Kell and Lila and this awkward bond they have together. There where these little chapters that didn't make sense, like you didn't know who it was about or who was talking, but as the story evolved it all made sense. So ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5 just because i couln't get into the story.
Can't wait till the next translation is out. "As Travars!"
Here is my March wrap up!

Ahhh thank you guys for all of the birthday wishes 😭🙏 It means so much to me ❤ They definitely made my day! I've just been spending my birthday eating, sleeping, and reading 😅 So... basically just like every other day 😂🤷♀️ Good enough for me!
When you listen to an audiobook, do you also have the physical copy? Since I take review pics for everything I read, I kind of have to have the physical copy or e-book. I also just like having the actual book in case I want to read faster. Most of the time, I alternate between reading and listening to the book.
I am finally making a dent in my TBR!! SUCCESS ✊ March was the month when my audiobook obsession emerged. Now, I feel like I'm wasting so much time when I'm NOT listening to an audiobook. Like why not listen to something when I'm doing a mindless task? It definitely helps me read a lot faster and a lot more 😊
Here are my ratings for each March book in order of when I read them:
🌟 Obsidio by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman: 4.75 Stars
🌟 Nevernight by Jay Kristoff: 4.75 Stars
🌟 Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff: 5 stars!
🌟 Never Never by Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher: 1.5 Stars
🌟 Skyward by Brandon Sanderson: 1.5 Stars
🌟 Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan: 1 Star
🌟 Verity by Colleen Hoover: 4 Stars
🌟 Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor: 3.5 Stars
🌟 A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer: 3.5 Stars
🌟 Vicious by V.E. Schwab: 4 Stars
🌟 Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young: 3.75 Stars

It’s been awhile since I posted a wrap-up photo, but I actually remembered to take on this month, so here it is. Not pictured are Tempest by Beverly Jenkins (because it was also on my kindle) and Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy (because I just finished it). As you can maybe tell, I went with a mystery theme for most of my reads this month, and I think my favorite read this month was probably A Dangerous Collaboration by @deannaraybourn. I just can’t get enough of Veronica and Stoker’s rapport. And I’m still thinking about that ending to The Vanishing Stair because it was pure 😱🤯😱 Overall, good reads all month. | What was your favorite read this month? | #books#bookstagram#bookstack#wrapup#marchmysterymadness#bookravensmar19#marchbookstagram19#booknerdsmar19#wildadventuresmar19

So, March was a disappointing reading month, but there were some complications which impacted my time. I was away for work for a few days, my partner was for nearly 3 weeks, we had our insanely busy and stressful crossover of A-League and NRL at work, and to top it off my Mums computer was hacked. It’s been a month I tell you.
While I spent more time of March than feb reading Graevale, I already posted it in my Feb wrap up (the problem of taking pics in advance). I did enjoy both of these books immensely, and that’s what’s important. I also managed to watch all of The Umbrella Academy, and 3 seasons of GoT. Of course I now only have 2 weeks to watch seasons 4-7 (37 eps in 14 days, and I’m working both days of next weekend), so that’ll be a struggle

So many books, so little time .
Happy Sunday and last day of March! After getting a bunch of rain yesterday we woke up to snow! Don’t get home wrong, I love winter but 2 days ago I was raking my lawn for crying out loud! As soon as I see my tulips popping up I’m in spring mode and this white stuff needs to leave 😐. .
How did your book purchases go this month? March always seems really bad because I go to the #bookoutletboxsale so end up with a ton of books but at really great prices 🎉. I only read 2 books this month which was way under my goal but I’m hoping to manage at least 3 in April 🤞🏼. Did you read anything amazing this month?? .
Day 2 of #myfavoritefive . Today is mystery/thriller. I am a huge Dean Koontz fan so I chose two of his books while mentioning that Watchers is my all time favorite of his. 🔎Ashley Bell is so different...Bibi Blair is told by doctors that she will soon die, but then two days later she is cured. She believes she was spared for a reason and figures out it is to save Ashley Bell. Her journey is so intriguing! 🔎The Silent Corner- Jane Hawk's husband commits suicide leaving a note that says, "I very much need to be dead." Jane needs to find the truth of what happened to him and now others. She becomes hunted by people who know she's searching. The story doesn't end on the last page, it continues throughout the series. 🔎11.22.63 is a time travel mystery in which Jake travels back in time to save President Kennedy from assassination. This is a wonderfully developed story that has been made into a TV miniseries. 🔎Beautiful Lies (by Lisa Unger) was one I read about 10 years ago but got me reading Unger's books. Are her parents really her parents? She gets a note at her door that says "Are you my daughter" aling with a photo. It's a story of choices and questioning one's past. Excellent story! 🔎Zoo is a great thriller that makes one question what people "in charge" are thinking! It's a terrible disaster with animals turning on humans. This was also made into a TV show. * @babygotbooks13@gfbookcatlover@cortsreads@booksabdbitesroc@booksandbachroads * #KittyHenry#ragdoll#KittyTopaz#tortie#booksandcats #bookstagram#beautifullies#deankoontzofficial#jamespattersonbooks#stephenking #lunger

What book did you just know you were going to love before you read it?
Hello, hello Dreamers,
I don’t know if it was the cover or synopsis of City of Brass that made me fall in love. But I knew before I even bought my first copy that I was going to love this book. I was not disappointed. The setting and storyline are pure magic. I was completely hooked within the first few pages. But nothing could prepare me for that ending. If you can’t wait for the live action Aladdin coming out in a few months, this is the perfect book to get you in the mood.
