Just going to leave this here for anyone currently trying to study on a Saturday evening 😭😭 yes I know we'd all rather be drinking wine, reading a book and be in bed - okay fine maybe that just what I'd rather be doing right now lol, but you get the sentiment

Happy studying and GoodLuck to all those who are currently busy with exams

Hey guys!
.
I was going to wait until later to post this, but I couldn’t resist! I [finally] got my copy of Daughter of the Pirate King by @tricialevenseller !! I read it a few months ago on ebook and decided I HAD to have the hardcover copy. Unfortunately none of the book stores that I visited had it in stock so I decided to go online and order it 😁. I absolutely loved the book, and I’m so happy to finally have my copy!
.
The book mark is one that I made and it inspired by this book! I’ve been thinking about starting an Etsy account to sell bookmarks, because I have quite a few designs that I’ve just made in my free time. What do you guys think?
.
I hope you all are enjoying your day! I can’t wait to come at you with more bookstagrams soon!
.
Until next time
-Karo πŸ–€

Hi guys! 🍁
Anybody else excited for weekend? I'm so tired today, I've been in a pretty bad mood, but thank goodness today is at it's end πŸ˜…Chocolate and tea and beautiful candles...yes please!!
β€’β€’β€’πŸβ€’β€’β€’
One of my favourite writers is Harlan Coben, but I have neglected my suspense/thrillers for a while now and have instead enjoyed getting to know the YA world...especially fantasy and contemporary! QOTD: Have you ever neglected or put aside a genre you use to love and read all the time for a while??
β€’β€’β€’πŸβ€’β€’β€’
These beautiful candles are from @all_things_book_ish !! Be sure to go check out ALL her lovely candles on Etsy (link in my bio)😍β™₯️🦊

I read this book when I was younger, much younger, and I don't remember a lot about it....
I'm not really into #Horror much anymore (it really doesn't help my paranoia 😜) so I may only watch the new movie from the comfort of my home someday - but...probably not πŸ˜„
*
Did you watch the new movie? Did you like it? How did it compare to the book?

Another sunny(or sunsetty?!) photo for Wednesday!! πŸŒ‡πŸ’›βœ¨ Oh, but I really wish it was Friday πŸ˜…
β€’β€’β€’πŸŒ‡β€’β€’β€’
Featuring another one of my absolute gorgeous stickers by @naomi_lord ❀️😍❀️ Ginny is just perfect in this illustration!
β€’β€’β€’πŸŒ‡β€’β€’β€’
I took like a bajillion photos for this post (like I always do πŸ™„πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ) I ended up choosing three I liked most and asked my hubby which one he likes best(this has also become a habit...lol!!) His first words were..."but you can't see the title of the book"πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I was just like πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈdon't care...I was waaaay more focused on this beautiful sticker and the colour scheme I wanted🀣
Also, this is not a book I think I'll ever read...it's Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese and it's a historical fiction...maybe one day...it has a good rating and the story actually sounds quite interesting...just too adult and obviously not fantasy.
β€’β€’β€’πŸŒ‡β€’β€’β€’
QOTD: Have you maybe read this book? How often do you venture out of your preferred genre?

Some more adult fiction to try outπŸ™‹ This book sounds great.
Synopsis:
Anna thought her marriage to Max would last forever. Having raised two happy children together, she looked forward to growing old with the man she loved. But when a revelation from her husband just before their wedding anniversary shakes her entire world, she's left uncertain of what the future holds. Needing time to herself, Anna takes up an offer from her widowed father to spend the summer on the small Agean island of his birth, unaware that a chance discovery of letters in her aunt's house will unleash a host of family secrets. Kept hidden for sixty years, they reveal a tumultuous family history, beginning in Greece at the start of the twentieth century and ending in Naples at the close of the Second World War. Confronted by their family's long-buried truths, both father and daughter are shaken by the discovery and Anna begins to realize that if she is ever to heal the present, she must first understand the past. . .
