What are you reading? I’m thinking about putting The Passage on hold, cause I haven’t opened it for a week now, and I have no desire to continue it right now.

What do you prefer, werewolf or vampire? I'm 10000% werewolf so every time I see any books about them I HAVE to have it.

I was rummaging through their cookbooks when I was visiting last month and really liked the look of these two.

"They were standing on the edge of a huge chessboard, behind the black chessmen, which were all taller than they were and carved from what looked like black stone. Facing them, way across the chamber, were white pieces — the towering white chessmen had no faces."—Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, JK Rowling. It’s #InternationalChessDay, so LET US CELEBRATE. Have you ever played chess? My brother has tried so hard to teach me but I’m useless. 100% would have failed this trapdoor challenge. PS.

QOTD: Why do you love to read? As a child, I was very shy and didn't know how to interact with people, so I kept to myself. And like many quiet and awkward kids, I turned to books for company. I read as a way to feel a little less lonely, and it worked! I found solace in books, and so many of them have shaped me into who I am today. Now, as a slightly less shy and awkward adult, books have helped me bond with other people. I love that books become what you need them to be - in my case, an escape, and a way to open myself up to others. . . . I don't really know how to follow that dramatic ass caption lol, but I really do want to know why you guys love to read! Let's talk in the comments. 😊 . . . #Ampersand2018 - Shelving #BookstaWarriorsJuly18 - Favorite Reading Spot #MeltingPagesJuly - Bookish Quote . . . #bibliophile #booktag #reader #bookish #bookfeature #bookstagram #booknerd #bookaddict #ireadya #yalit #instabooks #bookphotography #bookstagramtogether #booknerdigans #bookworm #shelfiesunday #theinfernaldevices

Happy Sunday! How are you progressing with your 2018 reading goals? One of my goals was to reread at least the first three Harry Potter books. I’ve just started reading The Prisoner of Azkaban, so so far so good! 🎉 My aim was to reacquaint myself with the series, but I didn’t anticipate loving it all over again. I love the magic of the first book, as Harry begins to learn magic; I also love the second book, with its dark setting in the Chamber of Secrets. I’m eager to reread the third book.... 🖼 #bookstagramreadsjuly Book selfie (of sorts!) #grimdragon Fuck this hurts #uncriticaljuly18 Fandoms #readgushjuly18 #readingcheckin #ampersand2018 Seven 🖼 . . . . . #bookstagram #tashasbookshelf #colourfulbooks #rainbowbooks #canadalovesbooks #bookishcanadians #mirroroferised #harrypotter #harrypotterandtheprisonerofazkaban #harrypotterseries #harrypotterbooks #currentlyreading #reread #harrypotterfunko #harrypottermerch #bookish #booksandfunko #jkrowling

Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows —————— I just watched both #DeathlyHallows films back to back and let me tell you, they are intense films to do with no break. I'm feeling all the things, have dropped 2k of words on a HP fanfic, and I'm not sure what to do with myself right now. A new #FantasticBeasts trailer dropped, I finally put down funds on a #Malfoy Loungefly bag, and I'm burning a #Slytherin candle from @alchemyandink. . I think I've had enough #HarryPotter for one weekend. . But, I stilly say that the last two films are my favourite, with honourable mentions to four and six. . I am once again stealing the shelves from @apeculiarmademoiselle who has library goals! —————— #QOTD: which is your favourite Harry Potter film? —————— Tags: The lovely @bookishexpat tagged me to do the #bookseveryday tag!

I’ve already moved things since this photo was taken (the classics shelves are getting very full) but I may have to do a bit more rearranging! Leo keeps trying to bite my coffee table books on the bottom shelves, which is SUPER GREAT I LOVE IT CAN’T GET ENOUGH. How do you display your big coffee table books? PS. My August photo challenge is now available on my blog and in my story highlights! I’ve only got about six more photos to take for it so I’m going to get started on September this week. As always, let me know if you have any requests for prompts and I’ll try to incorporate them!

“We should all be feminists.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ • I’ve always been a feminist. And as someone who has always been a feminist, it’s sad to see how feminism is perceived by most. The word has been twisted and turned into something negative by people who don’t understand what feminism means (or who pretend not to understand because sharing power is not easy). Women do not want to take over the world. All women want is equality! All women wish are equal rights and to stop being seen as lesser. • It’s quite sad to see how prejudices from hundreds of years still affect women nowadays. Even in writing! Men receive more awards than women (I am not saying they don’t deserve the awards, but it’s odd how women are rarely recognized); more men have their works included on the literary canon than women; books written by men usually take over classrooms (this is my experience as an English literature student). Why is the women experience so easily put aside? How is it not recognized as much as the male experience?! Minds need to be changed and voiceless voices to be heard! • We should all - men and women - be feminist!!! • • • • • • • #weshouldallbefeminists #girlpower #feminism #caturday #bluewall #bookgram #allthebooksjuly18 #popofcolor #julyinbooks18 #julybookstagram18 #ampersand2018 #fantasynaticsummer #bookstagramfeatures #bookstagram #acolorstory #lovepluscolor # #nadineslibrary #blueskies #bookqueensjuly18 #lovepluscolor #iamsweetjuly #grimdragon #bookreview

Happy Saturday! We get to hang out with some friends today so we are very excited! What is everyone else doing this weekend? . It was 11 years ago today that HP and the Deathly Hallows was published 😭 It truly feels like it came out so much more recently than ELEVEN YEARS AGO. I still remember we left for vacation the day it released and my mom told me to just wait to pick up my copy until we got back from vacation..so naturally I begged like a crazy person and on our 10 hour drive we stopped and got it 😅 . Do you remember where you were when Deathly Hallows was released!? . ✨ Seven - #Ampersand2018

QOTD: What is something small that makes you smile? AOTD: The butterfly jar in this pic! Slide to see a vid clip. I could never cage a real butterfly, but the fluttery antics of my little robo-butterfly are completely enchanting. He normally lives on my bookshelf. He reacts to being jostled, so whenever I pull out a book he starts dancing! * Anna-Marie Mclemore's WILD BEAUTY has the most gorgeous cover. The flowers make me think of early summer blooms with longing considering the current Texas heatwave! This special #owlcrate edition came with a WILD BEAUTY seed packet which is so adorably perfect! * Summary: For nearly a century, the Nomeolvides women have tended the grounds of La Pradera, the lush estate gardens that enchant guests from around the world. They’ve also hidden a tragic legacy: if they fall in love too deeply, their lovers vanish. But then, after generations of vanishings, a strange boy appears in the gardens. The boy is a mystery to Estrella, the Nomeolvides girl who finds him, and to her family, but he’s even more a mystery to himself; he knows nothing more about who he is or where he came from than his first name. As Estrella tries to help Fel piece together his unknown past, La Pradera leads them to secrets as dangerous as they are magical in this stunning exploration of love, loss, and family. * 🌹 CHALLENGES _________________________ #BookQueensJuly18 - Reading outside | I prefer air conditioning and fewer bugs.

📚 21.7.18 “Seventeen, eh!" said Hagrid as he accepted a bucket-sized glass of wine from Fred. "Six years to the day we met, Harry, d’yeh remember it?" "Vaguely," said Harry, grinning up at him. "Didn’t you smash down the front door, give Dudley a pig’s tail, and tell me I was a wizard?" "I forge’ the details," Hagrid chortled.” - J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows ——————— Seven books. Seven brilliant, and wonderful books. Trying to find a quote to put at the top of this post was extremely difficult, because I seriously love them all. Strength through hardship, love over hate, friendship over isolation. There are so many incredible things to take away from this series. I'm currently listening to the audiobooks, and it's amazing how many little details I've managed to forget. . .

I can’t even begin to imagine the complexities involved in writing a book with six other people. I suck a group assignments so I am in awe of this bunch of #ukya authors who collaborated on #flooreduk 🙌 This book wasn’t officially released until after we left the UK but I found an early copy at @waterstonesvmpiccadilly when I met up with @whatsallyreadnext and @bookishcraft. I haven’t talked about our night out on my feed yet but it was so fun to meet new people and I hope it’s something we can do again when Jack and I move next year. I was excited to find this book in particular as I’ve enjoyed books by most of the authors involved. Have you read Floored or any works by the authors? . . { #ampersand2018 | seven} #ireadyabooks #yellowbooks #vintagetypewriter #ukyalit #bookstagram #chattycaptioncommunity #britlit #youngadultbooks #youngadultfiction #britishwriters #bookishflatlay #bookishphotography #ihavethisthingwithyellow #allyouneedislove

It has been 11 years since #DeathlyHallows was published and I AM STILL NOT OKAY. Do you remember how you spent release day? I remember reading Deathly Hallows at home—my sister had one copy and I had the other, and because our rooms were down the hall from each other we’d open our doors every so often to yell about what was happening. I read faster than my sister so usually I would be crying about some character death and she would be horrified because she didn’t know who had died yet. Then, about half an hour later, she would open her door again and say, ‘THAT’S who died?!’ I remember all of that in vivid detail, but I don’t remember actually buying the book.

'Hang on a moment!' said Ron sharply. 'We've forgotten someone!' 'Who?' asked Hermione. 'The house-elves, they'll all be down in the kitchen, won't they?' 'You mean we ought to get them fighting?' asked Harry. 'No,' said Ron seriously, 'I mean we should tell them to get out. We don't want any more Dobbys, do we? We can't order them to die for us -' There was a clatter as the Basilisk fangs cascaded out of Hermione's arms. Running at Ron, she flung them around his neck and kissed him full on the mouth. Ron threw away the fangs and broomstick he was holding and responded with such enthusiasm that he lifted Hermione off her feet. ⭐ #ampersand2018 Seven #glenjensjulychallenge Best Kiss -  I chose Ron and Hermione for this one, they are one of my favourite OTPs 😍 . . . . . #bookstagram #bookworm #booknerd #bookish #booklover #bookgeek #aussiereaders #bibliophile #igreads #booklove #bookdragon #instagood #instabook #ausyabloggers #ausbookishfeatures #bookstamums #jkrowling #harrypotter #potterhead

Children of Blood and Bone - I liked it and I didn’t like it in equal measure I think. There are parts which are amazing (world building, magic, characters) and parts which were a little meh (journey/travel, certain relationships, POV changes). Overall I can certainly see why it has so much hype and it’s definitely with your time to read if you’re thinking about it. Now: Heir of Fire... my least favourite Throne of Glass book • Did you know I still haven’t read all of Harry Potter? I listened to Goblet of Fire on audiobook aaagess ago, so I really should get onto Half Blood Prince, right? I’ll probably just get Stephen Fry to read to me again, much easier than *actually* reading it! • Day 21: Seven: #ampersand2018 Took forever to read: #allthebooksjuly18 Make a book tower: #julyinbooks18 Harry Potter love: #nadineslibrary Purple - Dumbledore: #dreambunnybookishmagic #harrypotter #thephilosophersstone #thechamberofsecrets #theprisonerofazkaban #thegobletoffire #theorderofthephoenix #thehalfbloodprince #thedeathlyhallows #jkrowling #bookstack #bookspines

#nadineslibrary Day 20: #currentlyreading - I'm assuming this is a trilogy, though it does say "saga" in the series title ... I stayed up until 2am when I started reading the other night (oops!) I really want to read Patrick W. Carr's first series now --he's an awesome fantasy writer! What are you currently reading? #foxreadsjuly2018 Powers - So the protagonist, Willet, was basically a medieval cop with mental powers that enabled him to "delve" into others' minds to discern truth and lies ... Then sh-tuff hit the fan ... 😉 #ampersand2018 Pieces - Is Willet a reliable narrator? I feel like he has to be, but others in his order kind of question him due to his survival of the Darkwater. Even Willet admits he can't remember what really happened himself ... 😮 #bookscoasttocoastjuly Moon on the Cover #TheArtistLibrarian  #bookstagram #instabook #booksofinstagram  #booklove #bookstagrammer #bookchallenge #PatrickWCarr #TheDarkwaterSaga #TheWoundedShadow #bethanyhouse

Confession time: I’m really not writing right now. But I should be. I REALLY REALLY should be. The problem is that it’s very hard to write while I’m also working full time and doing a DIY kitchen renovation. My husband and I are spending almost every spare second of our free time working on the kitchen, so when I do happen to have 20 minutes to myself, I’m not using it to write. Writer friends, do you have periods of time when you literally don’t have time to write (rather than choosing not to)? How do you keep yourself from losing the spark of inspiration or forsaking the habit all together? . . ⚜️ Day 20 of #ampersand2018 pieces . . #bookworm #writerscorner #write #fantasywriting #writer #writersofinstagram #writing #writerscommunity #writersofig #wip

“He extended his hand, palm up, and stared in amazement as one of the creatures alighted on his finger. Soft feet tickled his skin as the tiny faerie blinked up at him with black eyes.” . This series, second to Harry Potter, was probably one of the most prominent in my time as a book-loving 7-year-old. Certainly a series I waited for eagerly. Whilst my class tore through A Series of Unfortunate Events, I was with these - my eyes wide in search of boggarts and brownies. I try to forget the film adaption exists, as these books were very special to me growing up. Everything from the magical world to the illustrations on every page - and my copy of the Field Guide is still one of my favourite art books. In fact, I may do an entirely separate post on it in the future ... for now, you can see it poking out of the background. Hundreds of beautiful watercolours of elves, kelpies and sprites ... partly in thanks to this series, I still, to this day, hold a place in me that believes in faeries - or at least in the existence of an invisible world. And when I find a stone on the beach with a natural hole through its middle, I will hold it up to my eye like a monocle and see if I can spot something invisible. Would I recommend the series to you? That depends entirely on your literary preferences, as they are definitely aimed at children - so in that case I would most definitely recommend them to yours, if you have any. My love for the series is held strong by the 7-year-old me, slouched in a hammock between my heart’s ventricles - probably dictating most of my likes, dislikes and decisions to this day. Maybe because of him I’m biased. I suppose I’ll have to reread them to find out ... . Day 20 - “Pieces” ( #ampersand2018) .

"They were standing on the edge of a huge chessboard, behind the black chessmen, which were all taller than they were and carved from what looked like black stone. Facing them, way across the chamber, were white pieces — the towering white chessmen had no faces."—Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, JK Rowling. It’s #InternationalChessDay, so LET US CELEBRATE. Have you ever played chess? My brother has tried so hard to teach me but I’m useless. 100% would have failed this trapdoor challenge. PS.
