I’m probably late to the party on this book, but if you’re looking for a page turner, this is it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Dark Places totally captivated me. Between murder, pedophiles, satan worshippers and a true crime group- there was a lot to keep me engaged. I will say it is definitely dark and creepy, but if you’re okay with that I recommend this for spooky season and need to get my hands on Sharp Objects! 👻👻👻👻
Have you read this? Thoughts?

I got it tattooed on my arm in January 2019 during the hardest time of my life. I like having it there as a reminder. ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ Life update: I hope you had a nice day. Mine was pretty good. I went to CrossFit this morning and had a great time. I had lunch with my parents and bought a few last minute gifts for my boyfriend whose Birthday is tomorrow! I read quite a bit of From Blood and Ash, I’m 200 pages in and I am quite bored… Does it get better? ✭ ✭ ✭ Quote of the day: « You could rattle the stars.

📖 𝘐 𝘊𝘰𝘯𝘵𝘢𝘪𝘯 𝘔𝘶𝘭𝘵𝘪𝘵𝘶𝘥𝘦𝘴 by Ed Yong ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ⁣ ⁣ A nonfiction collection reporting sincerely interesting and valuable insights coming out of modern microbiology. ⁣ ⁣ Yong gets specific without being incomprehensible to laypeople. It's interesting without sounding pretensious, and when Yong does choose to use grand, rhetorical statements, it's tastefully and not without plenty information to justify these feelings to most audiences. ⁣ ⁣ This kind of nonfiction would pair flawlessly alongside a reading of modern Sci-Fi and New Weird writers like Jeff Vandermeer. ⁣ ⁣ Incredible, strong reminder of the importance and intrigue surrounding the scientific study of the physical world, in a time so frought with social and psychological distress. These are the sorts of problems and questions we should set up society to explore, because they are our health, our lives, the lives of everyone and it's incredibly important that the public and its leadership understand the complexity and nuances of our physical, microbial reality and how it connect to our macro-existence. ⁣ ⁣ I want more scientists in leadership positions and in charge of important decision making basically. Scientific voices are not in spaces about policymaking where I believe they should be.⁣ ⁣ This book is not at all political, though, those are just the feelings it inspired in me. It's pure, delicious, and well-curated pop-science survey of exciting microbiology ideas and discoveries. ⁣ ⁣ There were a few LOL moments for me and the audiobook reader was great too. I think it thoroughly accomplished everything it set out to do.⁣ ⁣ Highly recommend to anyone interested in Sci-Fi, Microbiology, Pop-Science Lit, or Science generally. 📖 ⁣ ⁣ #IContainMultitudes #EdYong #book #books #audiobook #bookrecs #sciencebookrecs #bookrecommendations #sciencebook #science #popscience #popsciencebook #sciencelit #popsciencelit #bookcommunity #bookish #bookstagram #bookworm #reading #reader #bookish #bookishlife #booklover #bookworm #bookstagrammer #book #booknerd #booksofinstagram #📚 #bibliophile

I love a character driven novel. Couple that with a multi generational family saga in a culture different from my own, and you have my attention. Homegoing is a favourite of mine, Pachinko I read recently, and while it was lovely, I found it at times problematic. What’s your favourite multi generational fiction? #bookish #bibliophile #bookworm #booksofinstagram #booknerd #booklover #bookgram #bookaddict #read #books #bookcommunity #instabooks #yeg #igbooks #igreads #currentlyreading #booksonbooks #booksofig #reader #booklove #beautiful #bookaholic #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #fallvibes #october #bookstack

Halloween is coming🎃. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Desde hoy y hasta el 31 de Octubre todos los post que vais a ver por aquí van a estar relacionados con Halloween. Ya sabéis que es una época que me encanta así que tengo que aprovechar.... ¡Ha llegado la hora de las Brujas! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mi “yo adolescente” estaría muy orgullosa de la recomendación que os voy a hacer hoy, y no es otra que «Rimas y leyendas» del gran Gustavo Adolfo Becquer. En esa época conocí este libro y se fue directo a mis favoritos, su toque dark me cautivo por completo. Así que si os apetece os podéis reservar alguna de sus leyendas para la noche de Halloween, como apunte os diré que mi favorita es «El monte de las ánimas». ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ➳ ¿Lo habéis leído? ¿Os llama la atención? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bookster #bookstagram #bookstagramespaña #books #bookish #booklover #bookaholic #reader #bibliophile #bookishgirl #bookscommunity #hyggelife #betweencozymoments #aestheticfeed #cozyvibes #hyggehome #cozylife #cozyreadingmoments #becquer #halloween #spooky #leyendas

These are my first spreads with some of the Avatar: The Last Airbender characters. It was so therapeutic and fun to do, I can’t wait to create more spreads and see how creative I can get 🤗 Also, I will forever recommend this series and it’s spin-off.

• C U R R E N T • R E A D • . . I’m loving this high fantasy story so far—the first in a series of 4 (final book coming out in December?! )—and can already tell I’m gonna need to get my hands on the second and third books ASAP. . This book was gifted to me an embarrassingly long time ago {literally years} by my forever book-buddy @katelinwahl 💓😘 and I feel SO FOOLISH for not reading it sooner.😳 Thank you to @carly .simone for the recent recommendation of this fantasy series, which inspired me to finally enter this world!✨{Synopsis below!!} . . What book has been on your shelf forever, unread and waiting?👇🏼👀 . . . . Synopsis: “Laia is a slave. Elias is a soldier. Neither is free. . Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear. . It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The family ekes out an existence in the Empire’s impoverished backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They’ve seen what happens to those who do. . But when Laia’s brother is arrested for treason, Laia is forced to make a decision. In exchange for help from rebels who promise to rescue her brother, she will risk her life to spy for them from within the Empire’s greatest military academy. . There, Laia meets Elias, the school’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he’s being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined—and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.” . . . #anemberintheashes #emjacobsreads #bookaesthetic #bookish #fortheloveofbooks #booknerd #bibliolifestyle #bookphotography #bibliophile #highfantasy #bookishlove #booklovers #booksbooksandmorebooks #readersofinstagram #justonemorechapter #bookish #fantasyreads #booksaremagic #fantasyseries #bookishgirlgang #alwaysreading #bookfeature #sabaatahir #currentread #currentlyreading

🔷🔹REVIEW - The Night Swim 🔹🔷 **strong trigger warning for rape victims and survivors of sexual abuse** Raw, real, important. A few words that came to mind when I finished this month’s thriller club pick! Rachel Krall has become a household name ever since her true-crime podcast became an overnight sensation. In this new season of her podcast, Rachel is doing something completely new and following a live rape trial occurring in a small town. On her way to the town to follow the trial, someone leaves a note on her windshield begging for help for a similar crime that happened 25 years before in the same town. Rachel vows to stay focused on the current trial and podcast season until more notes keep showing up and start to peak her interest. As Rachel starts digging into both cases, the past and present start to collide as she uncovers suspicious connections between the two. The discoveries she finds during her investigation are startling and end up changing the lives of everyone involved in both crimes. I thought this was an important read on rape culture and how different generations perceived it. I enjoyed the pod cast media concept mixed with the live courtroom drama. I would rank this as more of a slow burning general crime fiction than a fast paced thriller though. Overall a good read that I really enjoyed! 📍Read If You Like 〰️Dual POVs and timelines 〰️General crime fiction 〰️Character driven mystery

Happy Pub day to Don't Move. Thank you @blackstonepublishing for my advanced copy, it has been a pleasure to read it (if horror can be pleasurable 😂 ) Let me tell you, first chapter opened with a bang. And it so reminded me of the Final Destination movies, where first scene - everyone dies, and very gruesomely. Obviously, the book goes on, and it involves spiders. But gore galore 🙌🙌 (if you're into that kind of horror ). If you haven't seen this one around yet, one of the authors is Impractical joker (oh I hope you know what I'm talking about ) James S. Murray. So you know there's a bit of humor to relief the tensions. And the characters (a church group ) set in this unbelievable setting with murderous spiders.. I mean it's like one of those fun horror movies you watch all October, for the "jumps out of the bushes" scares. Seriously, if you enjoy the slasher horror, and don't mind spiders - put this on your to read list. I'm loving it, reading at night before bed.. yup great idea 🤦🏼‍♀️. But I'm so close to finishing it, I need to know if anyone will make it out alive. ❓What's your horror style? I love the old school slashers. Think Jason, or Michael Myers 🔪🔪🔪

Book Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐ It started with a secret- Jill Mansell (Romance ) About Lainey has lost everything. Luckily one little fib (OK, quite a big fib ) helps nail her dream job. Soon she's living in a stunning house by the sea, looking after a chaotic family. She wasn't looking for love but the Seth walks in. But how would he react if he knew she hadn't been honest with him? He has a secret of his own though and everything is about to start unravelling! Thoughts 💭 I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, it took me to the Devon seafront when I needed to get my head out of reality! The chemistry between Lainey and Seth was definitely there from the moment they met and part of me wanted it to be a little more firey (personal preference ) but overall such an easy read! It is a summer read but would still recommend picking it up! 💗 #books #whatiread #booksofig #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #bookreview #bookish #booklover #bookclub #bookrecommendations #becauseofreading #stories #booknerd #bookcommunity #readersofinstagram #bookcommunity #booktube #bookblogger #junereads #bookhaul #instabooklovers #bookreviews #currentlyreading #bookmail #readalongbookfriends

“Bad things can happen, terrible things. You can lose the people you love the most...you can discover that the very life you’re living is a terrific lie. And despite this, despite all this, the sun will continue to rise.” • 4.5 ⭐️/5 After losing her husband (and finding out that he had a separate family ), Irene Steele decides to make a life on St. John, along with her two sons. The FBI is still on their trail, and a mysterious SUV seems to be tracking them across the island. After their lives have been uprooted, will they be able to stay in their new home? • Elin Hilderbrand has done it again. What a wonderful conclusion to the Paradise trilogy. I’ve been an Elin fan for about two years, but had never picked these books up until August (thanks for the rec, Mom!! ), and I’m so glad I did. The trilogy was a wild ride for these characters, and I’m so happy with how it ended. I was also thrilled to see one of my favorite characters from the Winter Street series make an appearance! “Troubles in Paradise” is a lot of things: a thriller, a mystery, a slice of island escapism, but most of all, it’s a love story, in so many ways. It’s romance, it’s family (both blood-related and chosen ), it’s learning to love and respect yourself, and it’s falling in love with somewhere you never expected. What a beautiful story. Irene Steele, I won’t soon forget you or St. John. • • • #troublesinparadise #paradisetrilogy #paradise #elinhilderbrand #ireadelin #anglercupcake #nantucketbooks #littlebrown #usvi #bookreview #bookrec #readingchallenge #fallbooks #newbook #bookstagram #bookish #ange_reads

Stamped by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi this is a YA “remix” of Ibram X. Kendi’s nonfiction book, Stamped From the Beginning, which explores the history of racist ideas in America. it was a really speedy and easy to understand history and i think this is such a good idea to offer to Young Adult readers. it gives us the critical ideas in a comprehensible and relatable way and follows a very clear structure of racial thinking: those of the segregationists, assimilationists, and antiracists. i think this book would be perfect for middle school and high school students who are learning the edited version of US History in school because Stamped lays out many of the ideas that public school textbooks are either too lazy or too afraid to cover. if i were a teacher, this would definitely be on my required reading list. for me personally, i knew most of the history already but actually having Reynolds and Kendi lay out the schools of thought and how they evolved throughout history was super helpful in understanding key figures in this country’s race history. i would definitely recommend this to a younger audience but even if you are older i still think you can get something out of it! rating: 📚📚📚📚

😇 ACHTSAMKEIT 😇 . Unbezahlte Werbung . Vielen Dank Mamiiiiiii @natalia_li für dein süßes Geschenk. Meine Mama sagt... Ich soll mich ein wenig entspannen 🤭❤️🍁 . Eine Mama zu sein ist ein 24/7 Job, von daher ist es umso wichtiger, dass man sich nicht endgültig "kaputtarbeitet". . Manchmal hat auch eine Mama keine Motivation für den Haushalt. Manchmal sagt auch eine Mama "Schatz, kannst du heute ein Döner holen?“ Manchmal hat eine Mama keine Lust sich zurecht zu machen und verbringt ganzen Tag im Schlafanzug. Manchmal drückt auch eine gute Mama ihrem Kind das Handy in die Hand und kuschelt sich einfach ran. MANCHMAL IST AUCH EINE MAMA EINFACH NUR MÜDE! . Und das ist völlig verständlich 😇🛁 deswegen muss man sich unbedingt #metime gönnen, alles für paar Minuten stehen und liegen lassen. An sich zu denken ist kein Egoismus das ist Investition... "wenn es dir nicht gut geht, kannst du dich nicht um deine Familie kümmern." . In dem Buch werden viele kleine und tatsächlich umsetzbare Beispiele aufgeführt, wie man die Achtsamkeit in dem langweiligen, stressigen Alltag einbringen und für mehr Entspannung sorgen kann 😇❤️ . Zusätzlich zu diesem kleinen (108 Seiten ) Ratgeber, gibt es auch ein Dankbarkeitstagebuch😊 denn... "Dankbarkeit ist im Grunde der Zwilling von Achtsamkeit." und die größte Dankbarkeit spürt jede Mutter, wenn sie ihr Kind lachen sieht ❤️❤️❤️ 😊🍁 Oder solche Erinnerungsmomente, wie der erste Fußabdruck🤭🤭🤭 . JETZT DIE FRAGE an alle Mamas, welche Momente der Entspannung gönnt ihr euch? 😊🛁 Sei es eine warme Badewanne oder einfach 5 Minuten alleine einkaufen gehen 😂

GEÇMİŞİ BIRAKMAK İÇİN, AFFETMEYE HAZIR OLMALIYIZ Geçmişi bırakmak, kendimiz dahil herkesi affetmeyi seçmek zorundayız. Nasıl affedeceğimizi bilmeyebiliriz, affetmek istemeyebiliriz; ama affetmeye istekliyim demek bile, iyileşme sürecini başlatır. Kendi iyiliğimiz için geçmişi bırakmak ve herkesi affetmek mutlaka gerekli. “İstediğim gibi biri olmadığın için seni affediyorum. Seni affediyor ve özgür bırakıyorum”. Bu olumlu düşünce bizi özgür kılar. TÜM HASTALIKLAR AFFETMEME DURUMUNDAN KAYNAKLANIR Hastalandığımız zaman, yüreğimizi gözden geçirelim. Acaba kimi affetmeye ihtiyacımız var? Course in Miracles şöyle der: “Tüm hastalıklar affetmeme durumundan kaynaklanır. Ne zaman hasta oluyorsak, affetmemiz gereken kişinin kim olduğunu düşünmeliyiz” Bu düşünceye şunu da eklemek istiyorum: Affetmekte en çok zorlandığımız kişi, BIRAKMAYA EN ÇOK GEREKSİNİM DUYDUĞUMUZ KİŞİDİR. Affetmek, bırakmak, vazgeçmek demek, göz yummak demek değil, tümüyle bırakmak demek. NASIL affedeceğimizi bilmek zorunda değiliz. Yapacağımız tek şey affetmeye İSTEKLİ OLMAK. Evren nasılların üstesinden gelir. Kendi acımızı çok iyi anlayabiliyoruz. Çoğumuzun anlamakta güçlük çektiği şey, en çok affetmeye gereksinim duyduğumuz ONLARIN da acı çekmiş olmaları. Şunu anlamalıyız ki, onlar da o an içindeki anlayış, farkındalık ve bilgi kapasitelerine göre yapabildiklerinin en iyisini yapıyorlardı. -Düşünce Gücüyle Tedavi-Louise Hay🤍💫 #psikolog #psychology #likeforlikes #l4l #lifestyle #blogger #bookish #bookrecommendations #goals #reading #kişiselgelişim #kitaplar #quotes #likeforfollow #happy #likesforlike #love #life #louisehay #innerpeace #affetmek #sevgi #ilişkiler #lawofattraction #student #studentlife #readandreview #success #peaceful

“If These Ovaries Could Talk: The Things We’ve Learned About Making an LGBTQ Family” is out NOW and Amy Schumer loves us! The book is available now on at all major retailers or check Indiebound to buy local! Here’s more about the book: JAIMIE KELTON and ROBIN HOPKINS realized the world needed to know there was more than one way to make an LGBTQ family. Each of our families came about in different ways, so how many other stories were out there? Turns out, lots. Inspired, we launched a podcast, and now we have a book that addresses the recurring questions that came up during our interviews. In the book, we cover topics like how to make your LGBTQ family, from choosing an egg donor, sperm donor, or surrogate, to adoption and foster care. To growing up with LGBTQ parents to being out as a family to talking to your kids about their origin story. This book is an in-depth journey that is equal parts funny, serious, celebratory, and powerful. You’ll learn a lot and laugh even more along the way.

I was always pretty bad at anything that required arts and crafts, I remember struggling so much in school because I could never draw a good picture or never able to build the perfect bird house…(aka the most important skill in life😅 )And look at me now: collecting leaves turning them into art projects, crocheting, water coloring in my free-time and taking aesthetic photos for my feed here…😊I just love creating things, and yes they sometimes fail epically, but it is still a process where I have to use my creativity…😊I guess what I want to say is if you feel stuck try something you haven’t tried in a while or something new because you never know, it could be the thing that starts off your inspiration again…🤷‍♀️😉 . ☁️𝘐 𝘩𝘰𝘱𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶’𝘳𝘦 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢 𝘨𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘵 𝘥𝘢𝘺☁️ . #alwayscozyforeverbooks #averybookishpost #theb00kstagram #bookstagram #bookgram #bookcommunity #bookphoto #bookish #bibliophile #bibliophilelife #reader #readingnook #bookreader #readinglove #readingishappiness #booktography #bookishgirl #autumnaesthetic #bookishaesthetic #booksonbooks #bookbloggershub #yanovels #bookacholic #bookishhappiness #bibliophile #bibliophilelife

I’m sick of sucking in. I’m sick of defending my skin. I’m sick of ignoring my own divinity. There will be days where I again try to hide; there will be days when I attempt to fit your gaze. Today, though, I am enough. I am everything. I will not hate. I will only love. 🖤🌙 Thank you to @greenwood .dist for providing this #Melanin T-shirt. Our skin is beauty, not a weapon. #blackgirlreading #thechangeling #victorlavalle #conjurewomen #afiaatakora #childrenofvirtueandvengeance #tomiadeyemi #melaninshirt #black #mixedrace #ilovemyskin #blackauthors #blackbooks #mybody #imnotafraid

Wie geht es euch? 🖤 • Mir geht's okay. Heute habe ich mir ein neues Handy gekauft und auch ansonsten war der heutige Tag ganz schön : ) gestern war nämlich gar kein guter Tag und allgemein merke ich, wie ich aktuell wieder oft negative Gedanken zulasse und mich davon runterziehen lasse... Es ist verdammt schwierig nur mit sich selbst, alleine glücklich zu sein und für die nächsten Wochen möchte ich mich unbedingt wieder mehr auf mich und meine mentale Gesundheit fokussieren. Das klingt so dramatisch, aber abgesehen davon, dass es jetzt wieder sehr stressig in der Schule und mit Blogprojekten wird, ist es auch dunkel und kalt draussen und ansonsten lief nicht alles so, wie ich es mir gewünscht hätte, aber hey ich habe zumindest einen Teil davon in der Hand und darum möchte ich daran arbeiten, dass ich beim nächsten Mal dann wieder schreiben kann, dass es mir gut geht 🖤 • Btw lese ich aktuell noch MADLY von @avareed .books und das Buch ist gerade eine schöne Ablenkung vom Alltag : ) freue mich aufs Weiterlesen. • #bookboy #curlyhair #curlyboy #curlyguy #readingguy #falloutfit #fallfashion #malefashion

Roman okurken ve kendim kısacık yazılar yazarken anlatıcının kim olduğunu çok önemsiyorum. Dostoyevski teknik olarak kendisinin de beğenmediği “Öteki”de birinci tekil şahsın ağzından anlattığı bölümlerde kendi romanını sabote ediyor. Ruhsal açıdan çıkmaz içerisindeki baş karakteri konuşturduğunda roman hastalıklı bir hal alıyor. Oysa ki ünlü Raskolnikov Suç ve Ceza’da tanrısal anlatıcı tarafından çizildiğinde onun hastalıklı hareket ve duyguları hastalıklı olmayan başka karakterle sohbet içerisindeyken okuyucunun ayağı tekrar yere basabiliyor. Diğer taraftan melodrama daha yakın Ezilenler’de Vanya karakteri anlatıcı olarak seçiliyor fakat Vanya kendi içerisinde büyük karakter bölünmeleri yaşamadığından roman çıkmaza girmiyor. . .

Ahem 🙋🏻‍♂️ What would a world be like without books? I was thinking about it as a short story fantasy or sci fi idea. Help me out? : 📚 What would be different in society? 📚 What would there be in the place of books? 📚 Would there be anything in their place at all? 📚 How would humans have developed as a society? 📚 What if a world without books all of a sudden discovered books? . . . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #amreadingfantasy #amreading #amwriting #fantasywriting #fantasybooks #gaywriter #instabooks #fantasyauthor #gayboy #riotgrams #bookofthemonth #epicreads #bookstafeatures #booklover #bookish #readersofinstagram #bookshelf #ilovebooks #reading #fantasywriter #fantasy #currentread #bookstagram #bookcommunity #readersofig #mybookfeatures #bookstagrammer #amwritingfantasy #bookstagramfeature #bookstaverse

I read THE FAMILY UPSTAIRS in one sitting and loved it so much.. When Libby Jones turns 25, she receives a letter that will finally lead her to the discovery of her birth parents. She also learns that she is the sole inheritor of their abandoned mansion on the banks of the Thames in London. What she doesn’t know is that others have been waiting for this day as well—and although they’ve been in hiding, they are now heading her way. After reading some mixed reviews, I noticed that people felt like this was more of a family drama/mystery rather than a thriller. I completely agree—and that’s why I enjoyed it. The cult plot was sinister + intriguing, but what I also really appreciated was how the story was told in multiple points of view, and that I could empathize with so many of the characters. One of my main issues with typical thrillers is that all of the characters are extremely unlikable, without any redeeming qualities. THE FAMILY UPSTAIRS had a gothic suspense vibe as well, so overall it was just a great reading experience. *A ton of Trigger Warnings in THE FAMILY UPSTAIRS. Message me for details.*
