Hi. Have I told you about our lord and saviour Rhysand? No? Let me tell you how much I love him. Because I love him. So much. Honestly Rhysand is the ultimate book boyfriend, who can deny that?
QOTD: Who is your ultimate book boyfriend? 😂 (Dutch below.)
Hoi. Heb ik je al ooit iets verteld over onze heer en meester Rhysand? Nee? Laat me je vertellen hoe veel ik van Rhysand hou. Want ik hou van hem. Zo veel. Rhysand is echt de ultieme book boyfriend... dat kun je gewoon niet ontkennen.
VVDD: Wie is jouw ultieme book boyfriend? 😂
Those books are YA fantasy from Polish author and they are on my bookshelf from some time now, though I haven’t read them yet 🙈
There are so many new books realised every month that I can’t possibly read them all. Too bad 😫
How are you coping with reading new book as well as those which were on your tbr for ages?🤔 🇵🇱 Dzień dobry!
Czy wszyscy czytali już Kroniki Jaaru? 🤔 bo u mnie na półce leżą już od jakiegoś czasu, ale jeszcze się za nie nie zabrałam 🙈
Wychodzi tyle nowych książek, że nie da się przeczytać wszystkiego, co byśmy chcieli, niestety 😫
Jak radzicie sobie zarówno z czytaniem nowości, jak i książek, które od dawna leżą na Waszych półkach?🤔
"If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way." From this quote by Martin Luther King Jr., comes the title of this book.
In the Hate u Give, a black kid is killed by a white policeman. In this one, a white kid dies and a black nurse gets blamed.
Ruth Jefferson is African American and has faced racism all her life, which is simmering inside her. When she is denied the right to administer to a white infant, because she is black, her anger explodes and she says couple of things in anger. When the infant dies, the father, Turk Bauer, a white supremacist blames her for the kids death.
Enter Kennedy, a public defender, who is first just arranging for her bail but then takes on her case as she gets interested in it.
The book is inspired by a real life incident and manages to evoke a lot of empathy as well as thoughts.
Ruth asks a question, Will Racism ever end? And I have given this a lot of thought because there is not only one kind of racism in the world. There are biases everywhere. Everyone wants to prove their supremacy. Like men do, women do, Brahmins do, Rich people do. The hell even book readers and non book readers do. The pettiness extends to watching or not watching of a TV show. As said in the book, everyone wants to yield that power over someone. As long as there is this want, there will be biases. But we can stop this one person at a time. Baby steps, as Kennedy says.
MEET MY LIL SIS who so graciously agreed to bring my Rowena Ravenclaw vision to lifeee. Y'all ready for the aesthetic I really love this one:
✨The first star you wish on. It's the stain left in the napkin you used to blot your lipstick. The ocean rushing up to lick your toes. It's light catching on the facets of jewels in your hand. The hard beauty of snow. Being seized with an energy to create though you may not know what. Knowing that getting something done is infinitely better than remaining stagnant. Realizing that perfection isn't attainable and striving to be better than who you were yesterday. The hotter flame burning bright blue. Being lit with passion for whatever craft you pursue. Feeling as indomitable as the night sky. It's chiffon flowing past your ankles. It's perfectly flowing handwriting. Crunching ice. Staring in wonderment at a past long gone. At ruins wrought with history, told and untold. Of undiminished curiosity. The sensual curve of the moon. It's the smoothness of your limbs after you shave. Taking your hair out of a high ponytail. It's your feet sinking deep into carpet. Threading a needle. The precise beauty of mathematical equations. Running your fingers along the spines of ancient texts, wanting to divine the secrets pressed between pages. Crossing things off your to-do list. Inky black rivers flowing from underneath your quill.✨ Love all y'all Ravenclaws! I went to a ginormous book sale today and have been trying to upload the unboxing video for MOnThs Instagram is not having it😂😂 I'll try again tomorrow bc y'all need to see this. How's your weekend goingg? Tell me something fun you did.

Posted @withrepost • @givemebookspr It's cover reveal day for Fahrenheit by @leigh_lennon !!⠀
Series: The Power of Three Love #2 ⠀
Author: Leigh Lennon⠀
Cover Design: Najla Qamber⠀
Release Date: March 31, 2019⠀
The Red Head⠀
Growing up in foster care, I never had a family I could call my own. I’d finally found my place in this world. The only problem, it was in the arms of not one, but two men. Two distinctly different men I’d never be able to choose between.⠀ ⠀
Finally, I’d found the woman I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. We were deeply in love. There was only one catch. She loved another, too. A surprising compromise was thrown my way. We’d share her, in a committed relationship. But, sharing wasn’t my style. Until, that was, I started to long for him just as much as I did her.⠀ ⠀
My redhead seductress had laid claim to my heart, along with the good doctor. He denied loving me but I would catch him watching me, with the same hunger in his eyes as he had for the woman we loved. They are both mine, he just didn’t know it yet.⠀

I spent ALL of today editing my book!!! And guess what??? I edited five chapters today!!! 📝📓 They’re nowhere NEAR perfect, but I’m so happy 😁 to start seeing my story take shape and become the story its meant to be! I hope one day I can share it with all of you, and that it will reach even more people and touch their lives as much as my life has been touched just by writing it! 🙏 How have you spent your Saturday? ☀️ ⛅️
How was your Saturday? 💜
For me, spring had (yes, past tense) finally come... 💐
Then almost two feet of snow dumped on me as I tried to unbury my car. 🚗
Luckily, I have plenty of books to read while I seethe thanks to the change of weather. 📚
And if you’re craving a sweet, Hallmark-ish story, then you should check out Courting Mr. Emerson by Melody Carlson! Check out my review on the blog, link in my Linktree! 😘
[ #freebook ] I feel like Daisy Jones would have really loved Austin 😍
I've been taking my time reviewing this one, because I loved it so much. This will be one of my favorites of the year. I had high hopes- @tjenkinsreid is a favorite and 70s rock is my jam- but this held up.
Daisy comes from a world of money but has the undeniable star power and voice to propel her to the top. She gets set up with the band, The Six. They were the hottest thing in music and seemed to be on an upward trajectory- until they quickly and unexpectedly broke up. This is told in a “behind the music” type expose, and I LOVED it for that. Loved the characters, the story, and the writing. I highlighted so many passages and this is one of the rare books that makes me want to re-read.
