what’s your favorite classic, or classic adaptation?
I hiiighly enjoy contemporary takes on classic books, and this one was no exception! from the very beginning I loved Zuri’s character...her voice and the poems throughout made her really stand out as a protagonist. since this is a Pride and Prejudice remix I expected to fall for the romance, but it ended up being so much more! ✨
I’ve finished this stunning series, and boy did that last book have me on the edge of my seat! Totally amazing, I definitely recommend picking it up if you’re not into crime novels but still enjoy the puzzle-solving aspects that come with it! 💖

It’s almost time for Spring Break, which means the fam and I are going to head to the beach for some sun and relaxation. More than anything, though, Spring Break is my time to read!
I just started a new blog and my very first blog post is all about getting my read on during Spring Break. I’d love it if you’d check it out!Link to the blog is in my bio. #bookstagram#avidreader#shutupimreading#readingatthebeach#booksarelife#alwaysreading
I’m going to level with you. I’m on day 13 of Spring Break and things do not look pretty or Instagram-worthy around here. I’m reading two books I’m in love with though, and I’ve gotten a bit of writing done with my faithful Lorenzo by my side. 🐶 #Lfk
I read this book for my History of Mixed Race in America grad class. I highly recommend it and to dig deeper into America’s history. Here’s the official description:
Charles Chesnutt was perhaps the most influential African-American fiction writer during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The House Behind the Cedars, his dramatic masterpiece, was crafted during the tumultuous post-Civil War era in the South, when many in white society feared the "evils" of interracial relationships. Boldly, with vivid detail and memorable characters, this novel explores the practice of "passing," as John and Rena Walden, two light-skinned African Americans, step over the color line to share in the American Dream. Conceived by a novelist who himself had once considered "passing," The House Behind the Cedars continues as one of the bravest, most compelling, and most important explorations of racism in American fiction. #BookQuotes
what’s the last book you bought because of bookstagram? 🖤
my last bookstagram buy was Sky in the Deep, and for me this book more than lived up to the hype! I found myself invested in Eelyn’s character development from the very first battle sequence and loved the beautifully described setting...from icy mountains and star-drenched lakes to the saltkissed fjord, this is a quick yet satisfying read. I can’t wait for much more from this author! 💫
“Torn in two and I know shouldn't tell you but I just can't stop thinking of you, wherever you are.”
My anxiety has been so crazy today but I’m finally at my home away from home for the next few days. I’m excited to take my mind off some stuff and do some exciting things for my birthday weekend.. ♡
I finished my fifth book of the month tonight. I've been in a slump. Usually, I'm up to book 8 or 9 and reading 3 at a time. March is just a garbage month for me, emotionally. If the weather cooperates and I can get back to the library soon, I will have to pick some other genres. Dianna Wynne Jones or something magical.
I enjoyed this book. I have read it before, but this is my own copy. Book 3 is probably on the horizon, but not too soon. I need a break from YA and emotions. 😒
qotd // what’s one (or more) of your goals for 2019? it can be reading goals, career, health, travel...
Light From Other Stars is full of ambition, and i couldn’t help but share on #slytherinprideday

#TBT "I'm tired of all the nonsense about beauty being only skin deep. That's deep enough. What do you want, an adorable pancreas?" -Jean Kerr
Long before I discovered the Doris Day and David movie adaptation, (and long, long before I discovered the television series adaptation), I discovered Jean Kerr's comedic novel, Please Don't Eat the Daisies, about being the mother of several young boys and wife of a well known theater critic.
True confession: when I first discovered the book I could not read it but looked at it often for the numerous pen and ink cartoons. But soon enough I could read it and thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Kerr's sense of humor. I am still quite covetous of the house they buy and their shaggy dog Ladadog.
If you haven't yet discovered this book, I recommend you track it down in the used book market and give it a read. It's a fun story and it is also a look at what it was like to be a working wife and mother on the mid - twentieth century.
Next! I'm so excited to see what's in store for Lara Jean and Peter. 🖤 I hope my heart can take another dose of this teenage rollercoaster. 😂
I'm hoping this book will be as good as To All the Boys I've Loved Before. That was a winner. So if y'all haven't read it, run to the store and pick up a copy. Haha
Have any of you started this series?
What book would you like to see turned into a movie?
I would definitely love to see this series on the big screen! I think especially with how society is currently, this would be a powerful movie!! Hands down this is one of my all time favorite series thanks to my bestie, and book pusher, @enamoredreads. 😜
Would you guys like to see this series on the big screen?
🌍 Happy World Poetry Day 🌎 •
I wrote you, the masses, a poem on this spring day. And you’re welcome 😘

Cozy Minimalist Home : More Style, Less Stuff
Smith, Mycuillyn (Author)
Publication Date: 23 December 2018
Cozy Minimalism isn't about going without or achieving a particular new, modern style. Nope. It's simply a mindset that helps you get whatever style YOU LOVE with the fewest possible items.
You want a warm, cozy, inviting home, without using more resources, money, and stuff than
needed. Why use more if you don't have to?
In Cozy Minimalist Home, accidental stylist and bestselling author Myquillyn Smith guides you step by step on making purposeful design decisions for your home. You'll have the tools to transform your home starting with what you already have, and using just enough of the right furniture and decor to create a home you're proud of in a way that honors your personal priorities, budget, and style. No more fretting when it comes to decorating your house.
So many book posts feature new releases and upcoming books, I'm starting a #tbtbookchallenge to highlight some older #goodreads ! To start, one of my all time favorites and most recommended read, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair by @joeldicker. This book is so fast paced and has about 500 twists and keeps you guessing until the last page. Harry hooked me in within the first few pages and I recommend it to everyone in a book slump or just looking for something really good.
Marcus is a young novelist and reaches out to his mentor, Harry Quebert. Harry has recently been implicated in a national media sensation involving the disappearance and murder of 15 year old Nola, from over 30 years ago. This book is always a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for me!
What is your go-to recommendation if you're in a slump or must read for others?

Book Review ......
Live in the moment, don't look ahead, embrace love, let go of the past, appreciate the life you have, forgive. Great life lessons tucked away inside a seemingly superficial contemporary romance. But @vi_keeland and @penelopewardauthor have turned out to be a great writing duo that never fail at adding deeper layers within their story lines. Fun, engaging and emotional, if you like these writers, then check out Hate Notes. •
