Here is my #best9of2017. It's fun to know that less than a year ago I made a bookstagram and then decided to throw in some art as well. Here's to another year! #bookstagram #books #reading #read #ilovetoread #ilovebooks #bookclubs #fantasy  #YA #YAbooks #fantasybooks #newbook #2017readingchallenge #goodreads #currentlyreading #art #myart

☃️Rosi: I must say I'm surprised at how much this book impacted me. A christmas story about a man who regrets his bad decisions and makes life changing actions at the end? Yeah, that's been done before. Therefore, I half expected to predict its outcome and not be overly impressed. .
.
.
☃️But I was. Fredrick Backman beautifully creates a poetic (internal) conversation between the protagonist and his son as his illness has caused him to reflect on his life as a successful businessman and a failed father. This short novella is his final apology to his son as well as his last effort to rectify his bad choices in life. "A life for a life."
.
.
.
☃️It's definitely a short book I recommend everyone should read before 2018. I can't say it's very "Christmas themed" other than the small similarities to A Christmas Carol (such as: wealthy main character and the appearance of an other worldy counterpart). However, the idea of finding the real meaning of life and living (for me) is an essential part of my end of the year reflection. So in that, it's definitely fitting to read during this time. .
.
.
☃️So for this book, I give it 🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲/5
.
.
.
☃️If you've read this book too, what did you think of it? I wish I could write a longer review but Instagram has such small word count! 😑

Apparently my goal is to cram as many books as possible into the last month of 2017. Okay, then. Let’s do it! • #rachelreads #tbr #currentlyreading #botm #botmmember #bookish #books #bookswithoutcovers #futurehomeofthelivinggod

Have you read #TheBearandtheNightingale yet? Did you love it like I did? If you loved it and you’re not #currentlyreading #TheGirlintheTower or if you’re waiting impatiently to get your hands on it like I am or if you finished it and are looking for something else like it, try #TheGolemandtheJinni.
.
.
.
This isn’t a new release - it was published back in 2013 - but the sequel is slated for publication next year, so now’s the time to grab a copy.
.
.
.
In a similar style to The Bear and the Nightingale, The Golem and the Jinni is a lyrical piece of pros centered around a modern fairy tale (or rather two fairy tale creatures living in a modern world). It’s a bit slow in terms of pacing, but it never felt heavy to me because I was so in love with the magic that was being created in and around both creatures and their relationship to the world and each other.
.
.
.
As a warning, this has a lot more adult content than The Bear and the Nightingale, it’s definitely not young adult fiction. I don’t think the book loses anything here, though, and I don’t think you will either. Also, if you weren’t a fan of the pacing of The Bear and the Nightingale, The Golem and the Jinni will feel positively glacial.
.
.
.
That said, Golem and the Jinni was my favorite book of the year when I read it in 2014 and is still one of my favorites. It’s a story of self discovery, magic and the power of deciding who you are and what your role is in the world, even if you had no say in your circumstances. Read it and let me know what you think! .
.
.
You’ll definitely be hearing more from me when The Iron Season comes out in 2018.

❄️❄️"In this here place, we flesh; flesh that weeps, laugh; flesh that dances on bare feet in the grass. Love it. Love it hard. Yonder they do not love your flesh. They despise it. They don't love your eyes; they'd just as soon pick em out. No more do they love the skin on your back. Yonder they flay it. And O my people they do not love your hands. Those they only use, tie, bind, chop off and leave empty. Love your hands! Love them. Raise them up and kiss them. Touch others with them, pat them together, stroke them on your face 'cause they don't love that either. You got to love it, you! And no, they ain't in love with your mouth. Yonder, out there, they will see it broken and break it again. What you say out of it they will not heed. What you scream from it they do not hear. What you put into it to nourish your body they will snatch away and give you leavins instead. No, they don't love your mouth. You got to love it. This is flesh I'm talking about here. Flesh that needs to be loved. Feet that need to rest and to dance; backs that need support; shoulders that need arms, strong arms I'm telling you. And O my people, out yonder, hear me, they do not love your neck unnoosed and straight. So love your neck; put a hand on it, grace it, stroke it and hold it up. And all your inside parts that they'd just as soon slop for hogs, you got to love them. The dark, dark liver--love it, love it and the beat and beating heart, love that too. More than eyes or feet. More than lungs that have yet to draw free air. More than your life-holding womb and your life-giving private parts, her me now, love your heart. For this is the prize." - Toni Morrison, Beloved. ❄️❄️

#UncriticalDecember - Gifts
#ReadGushDec17 - Christmas Lights
#wewishyouaharrychristmas17 - What epic prank would have Fred and George pulled their 7th year? I think they would probably have sold lots of their products and maybe even done something hilarious to Voldemort! Atleast I hoped they would!

#averyharrychristmas - I'm starting Deathly Hallows for the first time tonight and I'm hoping it won't make me cry as much as the movie makes me. 🤣

#QOTD - What do you think Fred and George would have done if they finished their 7th year?

|| So I am officially obsessed with the "Six of Crows" duology. I really loved the Grishaverse series, but these two books have lived up to every obscenely high expectation I had! 🌊🌪️🔥
.
So, A LONG TIME AGO, I was tagged by @the_book_diviner to do the #anythingbutbooks tag! I'm slowly but surely catching up on my tags, so here goes. Also please join if I haven't tagged you! 🍃.
.
•Cartoon you love?•
I have a soft spot for The Simpsons, and also all the classic Disney movies! ✨
•Favourite song right now?• "Fantasy" by Superfruit (and sigh, Amber Liu) ✨
•What you can do for hours besides reading?• Watching tv shows, at the moment "Harlots" and "Humans". ✨
•Something surprising you like to do?• Stroll through forests looking for fairies. ✨
•Favourite fandom?• It changes quite regularly, but as I'm currently reading "Crooked Kingdom", I'm kind of obsessed with the Dregs! ✨
•Something you often think about?• Travelling again, mainly going back to Iceland, and Berlin! ✨
•Something unusual you know how to do?• I like to think I'm quite good at accents, is that something unusual!? Otherwise... I can kind of play the tin whistle? Not really unusual, but I suppose not as common nowadays! ✨

P.s. photo inspired by Pinterest :) .

109/100 - Okay, guys, I have to be completely honest here: I don’t think I’m a Brene Brown fan girl. This is the second book I’ve read where I’m like, “Some good stuff, but nothing life-changing.” I appreciate her work and her research, but she doesn’t really do “it” for me. This book was fine, but I’m not sure if I recommend the audiobook because Brown reads it and she’s a little awkward. There were a loooooot of personal stories with some good tips thrown in. My biggest takeaway was responding to people hurting you by telling them, “The story I’m making up about this is...” which I’ve already put into action and it’s such a powerful way to rephrase your hurt and understand why you’re feeling that way. ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

My sweet dog is almost 13 and always snuggles with me on the couch in the winter. She either steals my spot or hogs the couch, but I don’t mind. 😊

I’m about to finish The War that Saved My Life. It’s a terrific young adult book and even though I’m not quite finished, I definitely give it 5/5 🌟!

@Regranned from @bibliobeautybooks - 💜REVIEW💜
5/5
Loud Whispers of Silent Souls
By; @authorclbrown
*
C.L. Brown shares the power of poetry through love, inspiration and understanding.
*
Mortal Destiny;
One night the moon won’t rise
The stars won’t shine but you’ll stand looking.
One day the birds won’t sing
The trees won’t take notice of the wind but you’ll sit listening.
One morning the sun won’t rise
You won’t see me when you open those beautiful eyes but you’ll lie wishing.
*
If you guys have been following me for a while you will know I’m not a religious person but even the poems in relationship to faith were some of my favourites. Brown writes not only with his mind but also with heart as you can feel the power in the words written and how smoothly they read.
*
I love how fearless the poems read to the mind and the amount of soul that resides in them. I loved the layout of the book as some poems were longer than others and the break in poems with a small quote or simple but captivating poem.

In the preface of Slouching Towards Bethlehem, Joan Didion writes, “I suppose almost everyone who writes is afflicted some of the time by the suspicion that nobody out there is listening.” Now that I’m writing again, I’m actively coping with this anxiety, especially with the piece I’m currently working on. At what point do you just cut, print, and move on? Is a writer still a writer if no one is listening? I’ll let you know what I decide after I drink this monster glass of wine.

This has to be one of my all time fave Sweet Valley Twins books. I loved the Super Chillers, they were always so scary! 😱 What's your favorite SVT book? (Liz's shirt though!)

Hi loves🌹 I turned in my English final and have finished my third semester at college 🙌🏻 I’m excited to finally be able to relax and read and do fun things for once without having to worry about homework every week, it’s like a breath of fresh air. And it’s something positive coming from all of the stress lately with the net neutrality repeal. I hope you all are doing well ✨ now I’m going to go and read because I now have all this free time???🥀

Hello, sweeties! ☃️ Today is the first day of my #wrLetItSnow challenge, and the topic is: Currently Reading.
.
Hence, I am #currentlyreading "A Court of Mist and Fury" and I am about to start "Six of Crows" (actually saving to read it while on my way home).
.
I've been so tempted to read SoC ever since I heard @diary.of_a_fangirl.16547 and @namastayreading 's  high praise for it. Hopefully I'll join the hype!
.
#qotd Any SoC fans here?
.
I already saw some of your photos under the tag and I loved them all! 😍 Right now I am heading towards the airport, but once I have checked in I promise to go like and comment.
