currently reading The Heart's Invisible Furies by John Boyne. Set in 1950s Ireland
So much happens I don't even know how to summarise it but I will say it's about a young man, who grows as an individual (bildungsroman?) and learns about himself, and his troubling past in a very drama-filled way. SO much happened and I'm not even on page 200 yet -

D22 of #grimdragon book challenge: Oddly-sized books. I don't know how 'odd' this print size is, but this copy of a LONE WOLF AND CUB book is an outlier on the small side in my library. #books #bookstagram #reading #graphicnovel #manga #lonewolfandcub #booksandoveralls

D21 of #grimdragon book challenge: I should reread this! And I've been meaning to for, oh, four or five years now. I will, soon! It's nearing 30 years since I first read this series (and its later 4th volume, THE WICKED DAY) and I remember loving them deeply. #reading #books #bookstagram #fantasy #arthurianlegend #booksandoveralls

Hi friends!!!
Today I came home from grocery shopping to a wonderful surprise...my @fanmailbox was here!! YAAAAAAY!!! The theme was Medieval Mayhem and it’s so perfect. 😭😍 If you want to see what I got check out my story. ☺️
In other news, I bought myself a special edition of Rolling Stones magazine...it’s all about David Bowie. ❤️❤️❤️ @the_bookworms_library can fully appreciate my love for this man. 😉
Now I’m off to finish speed cleaning before people start showing up for D&D tonight....shouldn’t have waited. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Do you judge books by their covers?
.
I read UPROOTED late last year and loved it, but the cover put me off for so long... it wasn't until I read the preview that I determined I would enjoy it. While not a perfect book, I loved the Polish inspired setting and the characters. It was the perfect blend of magic and violence for me as well. The end gets a little bloody, but I liked that visceral feeling.

Not oddly shaped really but I hate these oversized paperbacks. Why have they suddenly become a thing? I don't remember really seeing them 2 years ago. 🤔 They're hard to shelve, hard to hold and hard to read - so why do they exist?!
.
Today was even busier in work than yesterday and I am fit to collapse. So as per my usual night time ritual I'm going to curl up with my current read, Swing Time, before getting cozy in bed with Netflix. Have a great night everyone!

I just finished the second book of the Kelley Armstrong City of the Lost series and it was a great thriller.

Book collecting is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it must do it.

I love His Dark Materiald and the prequel is fabulous as well - I splashed out on this limited edition signed copy last year and I don't regret it... 😍 Have many people read His Dark Materials? I get the impression it's a bit of a British book.
.
Soooo... If I were to start an Etsy bookmark shop, would anyone be interested? Or do you think there are just too many real artists out there? I'm toying with the idea... And what designs/quotes would be your must haves?

#grimdragon - unusual-sized books

This is probably one of the cutest books I own. It's a dual Spanish-English edition of one of my favourites - Pablo Neruda. I want to read a poem a week starting March and focus on improving my Spanish :) It was a gift from my cousin when I moved to Spain and I treasure it 😊

Just like the Blues Brothers, one of these books is tall and thin whilst the other is short and fat. Also like the Blues Brothers, they’re pretty difficult to house on my bookshelf. As far as I’m aware, that’s where the similarities between these books and the Blues Brothers end. I could be wrong...

22. Oddly-sized books. This book is a must-have for HP fans. Lots of beautiful images from the books and movies, but it’s the wands that really steal the show. So much variety, everything from simple branch types to ornate designs.

Do any of you guys play video games? I wouldn't call myself a gamer (I don't really enjoy FPS or collaborative online games) but there are a few series I'm obsessed with, mostly fantasy adventure type games. (Given my taste in books, I'm sure that's shocking.)
.
The Legend of Zelda games are my absolute favorites. I grew up playing them, and I've been playing the latest, Breath of the Wild, for almost a year now. I love the world of these games and the reimagining of the Hero of Time legend in each installment.
.
Hyrule Historia lays out the history and timeline of the kingdom of Hyrule. It gives background information on each of the different games and features art and designs from the creators.
.
I love this cover and this book, but it's ridiculously hard to photograph, because it's so large! Even this photo gave me problems, but it's totally worth it. All of the concept art in this book is just 😍.

Shopping online for books has been one of the greatest things invented in the universe thus far. No more hoping that the local book store would have a book in a particular series or by a particular author (especially if it's not perceived as popular). This bookdragon will not have to leave her comfy den, suffer the blank looks of sales persons when she asks for a particular tittle or wyrm her way through the mob of irate, stressed out parents who are buying textbooks for kids.

But alas, all magic comes with a price! No not just shipping and handling but sometimes you don't always get what you think you ordered. Who pays attention to book dimensions? So now I have these books. I really tried not to panic but the worse part is that the 2nd book is the odd one out. So it just sits there, between the other two with a big gaping space! And I thought about shelving them out of order but I'm not sure if that will bug me more. Problems. Problems. Le sigh!

Anyway, I have only read the first one and it was amazing in the way only Margaret Atwood could be. Brilliant, disturbing and just such a well told, intriguing tale. I plan to reread Orynx and Crake before starting the other two! Have you read this series? Aren't the covers just 💖💙💜💚? #booknerd #bookgeek #bookdragon #grimdragon #bookstagram #margaretatwood #themadaddamtrilogy #instabook #instaread #igreads #reader #readerforlife #scifi #scifilove #scifibooks #readwomen #womenofscifi #womenwriters

Oddly-sized books
Well, well, well. What to say about this? The precision loving German in me feels very uncomfortable. Those books are a trilogy. I have no idea why they are not the same size. Even the two taller books are not exactly the same height 😬 DEAR PULBLISHERS WHAT THE HECK??? WHY DO YOU DO THIS? DO YOU WANT TO FUCK US UP ON PURPOSE?!? 😅😅
Besides, those very small paperbacks are a pain in the ass to read. The pages just won’t open enough to read comfortably without me bending the book a lot. Poor book. •

Only @drinksteareadsbooks could get me to take a selfie for a friggin photo challenge. I usually show my left arm because I'm right handed, but since I felt my Delirium tattoo by @mkemptattooer desperately needed some love, I played with the timer. It wasn't too bad, so I might be using it more. We shall see.
I'm also going to rankle a few folks with this, but I know a lot of you agree- Superman is definitely an overly heroic character. Sure he's damn near indestructible, but he's constantly coming into contact with Kryptonite, the one thing that cripples him. WTH
And graphic novels are an awkward sized book for me.

We all know, size does matter.
For some unfathomably diabolical reason, the Trickster's Choice duet was released in paperback. And then released in the new, fashionable, slightly bigger and more rectangular paperback. And I DID NOT NOTICE. Like I'm supposed to have a size comparison chart in my head when I buy books? Now they sit there all lopsided on my shelf and make me twitch.

Things publishers need to STOP doing:
*Different size paperbacks
*Stickers on covers! You monsters!
*Encouraging a trilogy when it was really just a good one-book idea.

#grimdragon Oddly sized books
#geekyglowreadslabyrinth Fear Not, Fair Maiden! Overly heroic character. I'm nominating Alanna. She just can't keep herself from trying to save the day. It creates friction with her daughter, Aly, in the Trickster's books because Aly doesn't seem to want to save anything. She is very much George's daughter.

“She moves like beauty, she whispers to us of wind and forest—and she tells us stories, such stories that we wake in the night, dreaming dreams of a life long past. she reminds us of what we used to be.
She reminds us of what we could be.”(🇬🇧🇫🇷).
#nakedcover today with Hunted by Meagan Spooner , a beautiful, wild, retelling of Beauty and the Beast! I just loved it so much: the cold, the dark and magical forest, the ferocious beast...and the deadly beauty! It was so delicate and violent at the same time, a real dive into Russian lore, a story of want and love! I can only tell you to step into it!
❔QOTD: What is your favorite fairy tale??
“Beauty knows the Beast's forest in her bones—and in her blood. After all, her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering its secrets. So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters out of their comfortable home among the aristocracy and back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there’s no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas…or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva’s father’s misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he’d been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance. The Beast.

Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange creature back into his own territory—a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of magical creatures that Yeva’s only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin, or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?”

Day 22 of #grimdragon - Oddly Sized Books
During the summer our library does a readinh program. It's free to sign up and after a certain amount of logged hours/events attended, you can get a free book! It's a great program but the books are usually odd sized and/or movie covers 😕 Oh well, free is free!
This book in particular is hard to read, it's huge and long! (Odd sized Peter Pan for scale, he's inbetween a Pocket Pop and a regular sized one)
.
Do you prefer hardback, paperback, or kindle for comfortable reading? (kindle. I love owning books but darn are they hard to hold!!)
