#sugarbookies

Happy Saturday!!!πŸ˜€ I have been so swamped this week! Pulling all nighters to complete assignments has been exhausting and I finally got to catch up on some Zzzs and reading. πŸ˜­πŸ™Œ Luckily during my time of endless work I had this Manga to keep me entertained. I haven't read a Manga since I was a kid and hopefully this year that will change.🀞 #bookstagram #bookstagramer #bookworm #bookstagrammer #reading #goodreads #bookaddict #blue #coffee #butterscotch # espresso #sunlight #busy #manga #shiver #junjiito #library #sugarbookies #sareads #freetime #hobby #work #outdoors #freetime #metime

❗️ Follow Train ❗️
*
While I finish up my next blog post, and before my next Insta post, I thought I'd do a quick #FollowTrain - but with a little twist 😁
*
I'd like to focus on the smaller accounts, under 1000 - there are some beautiful feeds that I believe should be seen by more people... Sound like an idea?
*
TICKET PRICE:
Anyone can play, regardless of size, but you can only nominate accounts that have less than 1000 followers.
You can nominate as many accounts as you like.
You can follow as many as you like, no restrictions.
*
RULES:
1. Do not follow to unfollow - it's despicable!
2. Follow people back - this is a follow train, after all.
3. You don't need to follow me to nominate people, but it would be appreciated and I'll follow you back.
4. Bookstagram accounts only
*
I nominate:
@simsationalreads
@bookishravn
@oyroyam
@palegoldpages
@ally.is.reading
@travel.in.books
@insignificant.beauties
*
I'll leave this up for the next 24 hours. All aboard!

This change in theme has really inspired meπŸ’™, I just want to take pictures everyday! I’ve already taken so many and I’m loving them allπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ

So I'm currently reading 3 contemporaries and they're all so cringy. (not referring to the book pictured above, although I do hope I get out of this funk by the time I get to this book.)
Why is my brain like this πŸ™ˆ why can't I just love everything I read 😭 ugh.

This proof copy of Renegades was kindly sent to me by @panmacmillansakids late last year, and ended up being a last minute favourite for 2017. I can never resist a good antihero.... If you want to know more, I did a full review on my youtube channel, also called Velvet Library 😊

Thank you @jozi_bibliophile for tagging me to do the #bookandquote tag. One of my favourite moments of this book is when Honey, who has power over bees, wasps, and hornets, says "It's good to be queen".

The Hindi Bindi Club is definitely one of the best books I’ve read this year. It’s hilarious, real, extremely well written and it tells a compelling story.

So I took and planned these photos forever ago and now I'm kinda tired of them & am reading books that were not planned to be read yet & ignoring the ones that are planned so I'm just posting this to finish up the beach pics (4 more left!) so that I can finally start on some new theme which I have not yet figured out.
I'll get to this book soon πŸ™ˆ
Also just finished book 5 in the Princess Diaries series & gave it 2 stars. Hoping to finish the next five in the next two months #poweringthrough

The amazing @this_cinderella_loves_books is hosting her first ever rep search

Hii, I'm Poonam & from South Africa (but you know all of this already πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚), my feed doesn't really follow any theme - it's more of a "this is what I feel like doing today" type thing πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ I try (πŸ‘€πŸ‘€) to add some humour to my captions & always make an effort to reply to my comments and engage with my followers

I love your book boxes, as the merch chosen is always so well thought over, it so beautifully put together & the books chosen are not only highly-anticipated reads but also have such STUNNING covers 😍😍 it would be an honour to rep for you & thank you for the opportunity πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ Goodluck to all those who have entered

Currently reading! . . . I'm also CR Princess Diaries 5, Harry Potter: A Journey Through a History of Magic, The Handmaid's Tale, & I'm itching to start a reread of Fallen by Lauren Kate - I read the first 3 books of the series in 2011/12 but want to reread them before I read the last 3...
.
Idk how I feel about this book yet, but it's got a lot of great quotable pieces in it, & I wanted to know - what do you guys do when you're reading a book & go "omgosh that's a great line!" Do you carry on reading? Highlight/underline it? Sticky-note the page? Do that kindle highlight thing? Write it down somewhere/type it out? Do you have a collection of your favourite quotes kept somewhere? Please let me know - I'm weirdly curious about this!

Hey guys!
.
So not that I’m back from my unofficial haitus, I’m going to try and post at least twice a week, if not more. I’m really trying to get back into the habit of taking photos, but I think that I must just do one big photo shoot a week and use those photos throughout the week [what do you think?]. But I am trying, and I will be bringing more reviews and recommendations! πŸ’œ

Until next time

Have you seen my blog recently? I don’t post on it as much as I’d like to because I don’t have the time but one of my goals this year was to be more regular with it. In addition, I want to do more collaborations on my blog/page this year and the first one is with @atouchofstarlightblog I’m so excited for this! Munira is writing a guest blog post for my blog which answers a burning question of mine, Which book(s) has changed your life and why? This is question that I love asking fellow bookworms because the answer is always so unique. If you’d like to collaborate with me this year (on anything, the options are limitless) drop me an email (thebookishnerdza@gmail.com) and let’s chat! xx tbn

Going back to my bookstagram 'roots' today πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ only it was waaay too hot to wear socks today hence the #NoSockMondayπŸ€”πŸ˜‚ hahahaaa is that even a thing

This is a SUPER late unboxing of the @thebcase JANUARY BOX πŸ‘€πŸ‘€ It was themed "A Pocketful of Jewels" & that's exactly what we were treated to (as always) 😍😍 I especially loved the "Shattered Mirror" bookmark & that cute little Wizard of Oz inspired make-up bag
