Where have I been?? โ€œNow, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!โ€ ~ Through the Looking Glass You know what I love about the #Bookstagram community? I've been sort of MIA lately, and you guys have reached out to check on me and make sure I've been OK. So, where have I been? Well, feeling kind of like I'm loving in this "Alice" quote. Feels like I'm running and running and running just to stay in the same place, and it's so exhausting. My blood work was pretty shitty, so my rheumatologist is changing up my meds, hopefully in the next couple of months I'll start to feel better. I also have a new diagnosis of vasovagal syncope which means I've been spending a lot of time laying flat on my back staring at the ceiling. Luckily, @scribd has audiobooks in their subscription. I might not be posting as much, and I'm sorry, but don't worry, I'm still reading, although not as much as I'd like. ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน #BookishLife#InspiredByBelle#BookNerd#BelleOfTheBookcase#๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ#Bookster#BookShark#Bookster#LitCurious#readers#Readaholic#bookstagram#๐Ÿ“–#BookWormย #BookAddict#BookBlogger#BookBlog#Bibliophile#IdRatherBeReading#BookSlut#AndHerNoseStuckInABook

Happy happy #PubDay to @sandiejones_author for her new thriller #TheFirstMistake!!! As with her first book, I couldn't wait to figure out what the hell was going on- a fast paced and exciting thriller, a modern whodunit, perfect for a weekend away or a day on the beach!! The Book This thriller is THRILLING! I really absolutely had to know what was going on and who I was supposed to be mad at because I was damn sure it wasn't Alice! ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน The Writing Just like before, Jones strikes a great chord between descriptive backstory and keeping the rhythm of the book going. I felt like I had plenty of information about everyone when I needed it without getting bogged down and bored. ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ Readability With the exception of that medication-induced hiccup, this was one I couldn't finish fast enough. Great beach read! ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน #BookishLife#InspiredByBelle#BookNerd#BelleOfTheBookcase#๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ#Bookster#BookShark#Bookster#LitCurious#readers#Readaholic#bookstagram#๐Ÿ“–#BookWormย #BookAddict#BookBlogger#BookBlog#Bibliophile#IdRatherBeReading#BookSlut#AndHerNoseStuckInABook

*I was gifted an advanced copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review. * Happy #PubDay to #Montauk!!! My ARC choices have been on such a roll, it pains me to write a review that isn't gushing on and on. I really think this book is a victim of my on-a-whim reading style, and I just wasn't in a place to read any historical fiction lately. The Book ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน I don't want my lackluster response to this book to take away from what an enjoyable read it could be. Maybe the fact that it was still cold and snowy when I started it made it difficult to latch onto? I don't know. But I strongly feel that if you think you might enjoy it you should give it a try! The Writing ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ Harrison's writing is fantastic, her descriptions of the location and the time were enough to immerse you without being overbearing (you know that feeling when you're reading Les Mis and Hugo is going on and on for pages about the color red the bishop is wearing? It's the opposite of that.) Readability ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ Again, I hate to penalize a book because I wasn't in the mood for it. Please, give this book a try! ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน ๐Ÿ“– ๐ŸŒน #BookishLife#InspiredByBelle#BookNerd#BelleOfTheBookcase#๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ#Bookster#BookShark#Bookster#LitCurious#readers#Readaholic#bookstagram#๐Ÿ“–#BookWormย #BookAddict#BookBlogger#BookBlog#Bibliophile#IdRatherBeReading#BookSlut#AndHerNoseStuckInABook

Happy book birthday to @dot_hutchison 's #TheVanishingSeason!! The final chapter in #TheCollectorSeries was bittersweet because I hate to say goodbye to these incredible characters. If you haven't read the first three, then I don't know what the fuck is wrong with you. Do it. Read them all. They are amazeballs. The Book ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน Bittersweet, but still gripping from beginning to end. The Writing ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ Still up to her full par, Hutchison doesn't disappoint with this final romp with the CAC team! Readability ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ Honestly considered playing sick on vacation so I could stay home and finish reading this.

Good evening #Bookstafam and happy #WorldBeeDay!! There are only three causes that really get my panties in a ruffle: the cycle of illiteracy, access to clean water, and SAVING THE FUCKING BEES! Why, you might be asking yourself? Let me tell you: Bees are an integral part of our lives because they are one of the most important pollinators that we have in the world. And pollination is VERY important to readers. See, bees pollinate over large areas, allowing them to move genetic material from one area to another. Fresh genetic material is crucial for the lasting health of a forest. Think of the intermarriage of royals and how weak their bloodlines would be come over time; the same is true for plants as well. If the forests become genetically weak, that makes them more suceptible to disease and insect attack, which quickly devastate a forested area. If forested areas are devastated WHERE DO WE GET PAPER FOR OUR BOOKS??? ๐ŸŒบ ๐ŸŒบ ๐ŸŒบ ๐ŸŒบ ๐ŸŒบ ๐ŸŒบ ๐ŸŒบ ๐ŸŒบ ๐ŸŒบ Bees are essential to the continued enjoyment and hoarder of our bookish kind! So what can you do to #PleaseTheBees? Plant flowers and bushes in your yard that supply food at varying times in the bloom cycle. Those dandelions you hate in your yard? Try to hold off on spraying them with weed killer, they are one of the first blooms of the spring for honey bees to feed on. Look up how to create bee friendly yards in your area, and always spread the word about how important bees are! #SaveTheBees#๐Ÿ#WorldBeeDay2019#bees#honeybees#beekeeping#beekeepers#queencell#hive#beehive#honey#honeybees#nature#wildlife#pollination#flowers#garden#beesofinstagram#instabee

A sad day, Tartar Sauce, better known as #GrumpyCat has passed away. She brought joy to so many of us, and encapsulated the mood most of us feel while at work or other appalling places. Cosette always aspired to be like @realgrumpycat, so she is taking this pretty hard. Thank you, Tartar Sauce, for all you brought us! #GoodbyeGrumpyCat#RIPGrumpyCat
