It's a chance to gain power and acceptance within your family, and within society. But stealing your first treasure can be complicated, especially when you're a wyvern--a human capable of turning into a dragon. Embarking on a life of crime is never easy, and Sky discovers secrets about her mother, who recently went missing, the real reason her boyfriend broke up with her, and a valuable jewel that could restore her family's wealth and rank in their community. With a handpicked crew by her side, Sky knows she has everything she needs to complete her first heist, and get her boyfriend and mother back in the process. But then she uncovers a dark truth about were-dragon society--a truth more valuable and dangerous than gold or jewels could ever be.

“Christmas Eve is my favorite... I think the anticipation is more fun than anything else. I kind of lost that. The idea that something - food, traditions, an arbitrary date on the calendar - can be special because we decide it should be. We make it special. Not just for ourselves, but for others.” Kiersten White, My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories . I love this time of year! I hope it snows because I adore the snow very much. And I love giving people gifts. Plus...there’s something magical about December and I think that quote sums it up. We do things more for others than ourselves. I think that’s why it’s so magical during Christmas/the holidays season. . . . . #christmas #christmastree #christmasdecor #quotes #sweaterweather #bookstagram #bookishlove

His curse will kill everyone he loves... . KEEPER OF THE BEES by @seemegwrite is a tale of two teens who are both beautiful and beastly, and whose pasts are entangled in surprising and heartbreaking ways.

His chest houses a hive of bees that he can’t stop from stinging people with psychosis-inducing venom. His face is a shifting montage of all the people who have died because of those stings. And he has been this way for centuries—since he was eighteen and magic flowed through his homeland, corrupting its people. He follows harbingers of death, so at least his curse only affects those about to die anyway. But when he arrives in a Midwest town marked for death, he encounters Essie, a seventeen-year-old girl who suffers from debilitating delusions and hallucinations. His bees want to sting her on sight. But Essie doesn’t see a monster when she looks at Dresden. Essie is fascinated and delighted by his changing features. Risking his own life, he holds back his bees and spares her. What starts out as a simple act of mercy ends up unraveling Dresden’s solitary life and Essie’s tormented one. Their impossible romance might even be powerful enough to unravel a centuries-old curse.

“You cannot pick and choose what parts of her to love.” Sarah J. Maas, Heir of Fire . I finished Kingdom of Ash a little over a week ago and I haven’t even posted about it yet! Maybe because this series mean so much to me. It does have its faults though. I can’t believe it is finished! I started this series when I was 19 and I was going through a very rough time so this series....I’m not going to get emotional about it but I will say it haven’t fully soak in that it is over. I’m kinda sad but I’m so happy as well. It’s weird. I guess it shows how much I adore this series. These books taught me so much! And helped me get through really bad times. Without any spoilers I think this conclusion is amazing! It is written insanely well and all the points of views flow so well into each other. There’s surprises that you don’t see coming and so many heart warming moments. And the sad moments killed me! Haha, I told my best friend I am now a ghost because of this book! I cried so many times while reading it. The last line leaves such an impact as well! It’s beautiful! . What are your thoughts on the series? If you haven’t read it do you think you will? Do you have a favorite character? Or moment from the series? . Mainly...thank you @therealsjmaas for writing this series. It will always hold a special place in my heart. 🔥❤️ . . . #ya #fantasy #bookishlove #bookphotography #booklove #bookaholic #bookshelf #throneofglass #sarahjmaas #bookworm #booknerd #bookstagram #books #booklove #me
