Happy birthday to the most amazing guy in my life, @james_trevino. This guy is everything you could ask for in a friend. He is the only human with whom I feel perfectly comfortable to be the silliest version of myself, to say and do whatever I feel like saying and doing without the fear of being judged, the only human to whom I can tell the ugliest and unworthy parts of myself and still feel respected and accepted and understood and who always brings out the best in me. He is the kind of guy who whenever feels that something is wrong will sit down and be like „ok, talk to me” and who taught me how important is to talk instead of bottling things up (which might sound like Human Interactions 1.1 but boy do you know how hard is to talk and to be honest?!). * Happy belated birthday and may the odds be ever in your favour 🎉🎁🎂 * #bookstagram#bookstagrammer#bff#instabook#happybirthday#bookaholic#bookworm

What fictional world would you like to go on an adventure in (danger included)? 📚 Today it was one of those days when I felt... stupid :)) I spent 20 minutes looking on a map (on a super easy map), trying to figure where to go. It was super hot, not a single cloud in the sky and the traffic was terrible. But the whole day was off so it's ok 😅 📚 #booktower#bookstack#bookshelf#bookshelves#bookgirl#iamreading#blondehair#reading#literatur#bucher#cititoridinromania#shelflove#readingissexy#bookgeek#booknerd#bookporm#booklove#bookishlove#bookish#bookbookbook#kitaplar#kitapkurdu#ichlese

What fiction character is amazing in their book/show/movie, but would be insufferable if you had to deal with them in mundane everyday situations? 📚 Nothing new to talk about. I've read a few pages more from One Second after, wrote three reviews on GR... not much. How was your day? 📚 #bookstagram#acofas#sarahjmaas#acotar#acowar#harrypotter#voldemort#literature#literatur#kitaplar#flatlay#bookgirl#bookmania#bookworld#booklove#bookish#instabook#bookworms#bookaddict#bookaholic#igread#igreads#eragon

What are you currently reading? 📚 I started reading One Second After by William R. Fortschen. What if one day all the electricity would be gone? No phone, no laptop, no cars, no running water, no refrigerators, no one to transport the food to your city, no electricity in the hospitals and so on. I love the idea (uhm, I love reading about it), even though the writing is only okish. I can't stop thinking that Stephen King would have done it better. It reminds me of The Stand or of Soft Apocalypse and, to some extent, of The Passage. It might be their uglier little sister lol. 📚 #bookstagram#bookshelves#shelves#bookshelf#library#bookstore#leitores#instawrite#booklife#epicreads#currentlyreading#bookstagrammer#bibliophiles#pictureoftheday#instakitap#bookishfeature#büchersüchtig#booknerdigans#bookgirl#cititoridinromania#bookcommunity#bookpic#booktography

What are 4 words that would describe you? 📚 Today I met a friend who gave me a few clothes that he wasn't using anymore for the homeless guy that convinced me to take off my headphones and actually listen to him. It's interesting and sad how today's society makes us colder and colder. You close your eyes because what can you do? You close your eyes because you're trying to protect yourself, because as a woman, you shouldn't pay attention to the scrawny guy because he might ask for money or tell you God knows what. You know how these things go. You notice him and then you can't get rid of him and people will blame it on you - "you shouldn't have talked to him, you asked for it". And so you learn to close your eyes because it's better to be safe, ignoring the less fortunate of us. 📚 On a happier note, I might be cold even in summer, but at least I'm keeping my books warm thanks to @bookbeau 's booksleeve. If you go to her website and use the code LIZ15 you will get -15% off for everything and how cool is that! 📚 #livre#libro#reading#booksleeve#booksofinstagram#lovebooks#instareading#bookwarm#cititoridinromania#citesc#lesen#buch#readingtime#booknerd#bookgeek#bookselfie#bücher#bücherjunkie#livredujour#poetry#bookgirl#booktography#igbooks

If you were to put one thing in a time capsule that would be opened 100 hears from now, what would it be? 📚 I was all over the place the last 2 days. A lot of good things have happened. I also started to read I Want Superpowers by @stevenbereznai and it's sooo good! I was so in the mood for a good dystopia + superpowers. If you know other books that fit the criteria, please let me know. 📚 #bookstagram#instabook#fantasy#bookart#instareads#acotar#sarahjmaas#art#artofvisuals#lifestyle#amolivros#fromabove#bookgeek#kitapkurdu#libro#bookstagramfeature#instagram#bookcommunity#epicreads#goodreads#flatlay#outfitoftheday#bibliophile#artistofinstagram

What is your favourite genre? 📚 When I first saw Broken Mirrors' cover I knew exactly what kind of pic I wanted to take with it. It basically screams at you "release your inner skeleton" 😅 I finished it last week and I loved it (which really says something because I'm not into thrillers/books with cops/mafia). But it was so fast paced, so full of action I couldn't resist and last Friday when I had a bit of me time I flew through it. I even liked the love story, which doesn't usually happen (mini-crush on Malcom). Thank you @mariemcwilliamsauthor ! 📚 SYNOPSIS 📚 When Marie moves from Belfast to London, she envisions a fresh start and an escape from a broken home. Once there, she meets Malcolm Carter, a charming, handsome man who sweeps her off her feet and gives her a life she could only have imagined. But Malcolm isn’t all he seems; he’s a criminal, a mobster and a murderer. Detective Fraser Duncan knows what he is, and he's determined to take him down, but things get more complex when a rival and brutal gang leader appears on the scene, setting his sights on Malcolm’s empire. When Marie chooses to stay with Malcolm, regardless of what he is and what he has done, she starts down a path from which she can never return, and now she has been taken, Detective Duncan and Malcolm must set their differences aside and join forces in a race against time to save the woman they love. 📚 #amreading#bibliophile#bookaddict#bookaddiction#brokenmirrors#bookaholic#bookalcoholic#bookchat#bookclub#bookgeek#bookgirl#bookish#bookishlove#booklove#booklovers#booknerd#bookphotography#bookporn#bookshelf#bookshelves#booksofinstagram#bookstagram#bookstagramfeature#bookstagrammer

Q&A time. You know the drill - ask me stuff and I'll answer. Nothing is off limits. 📚 But before we start, isn't the booksleeve from @bookbeau just beautiful? Don't let the hard days win, ha? You know what this quote reminds me of? It reminds of "don't let the muggles get you down". Or of "nolite te bastardes carborundorum". Words to live by. You should defo check her out because her art is just so cool (and her booksleeves keep your books warm). 📚 Quick update - I finished Social Creature by Tara Isabella Burton and it was so good! Like really! If you want some black pills and a super cynic style, this book is for you. 📚 A few days ago I also finished Broken Mirrors by @mariemcwilliamsauthor and that too was so good! The kind of book that keeps you glued to the page. 📚 I will write a review for each of them asap. 📚 #livre#libro#reading#booksleeve#booksofinstagram#lovebooks#instareading#bookwarm#cititoridinromania#citesc#lesen#buch#readingtime#booknerd#bookgeek#bookselfie#bücher#bücherjunkie#livredujour#poetry#bookgirl#booktography#igbooks

What superpower would you like to have? 📚 Hello there, new people! It's nice to have you here. I'm Liz and I'm talking about books. The book that I want to talk about today is I Want Superpowers by @stevenbereznai . I'm super excited to read it because it's 100% my jam - superpowers, heroes, villains, X-Men meets Chronicle and Steelheart. I just want to read about people that have supernatural abilities because... BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE THEM. Isn't it dreadful that out of all the alternate realities, we happen to live in one where humans can't fly or move things with their mind?! If I would've had the power to move things with my mind, that tower would have stayed upright (actually, the pose was 100% deliberate, I thought it looked cuter 👱). 📚 Also, comment friend in your language and enter 😆 Because, you know, Doors of Durin and stuff. Plus, yesterday's feature wouldn't have happened without my friend @james_trevino haha 😇 📚 Btw, some words about the Instagram feature. If you go to my Sunday's caption, you'll see that the WHP tag is among the last ones. That's because I wrote it on a whim. I remember thinking 'I'm not going to win anyway but whatever'. Let this be a lesson. I'm not talking about social media, but about life in general. You know what I mean. This isn't the first time something like this happened to me and it's not going to be the last. So long story short - just do it. 📚 #bookstagram#iwantsuperpowers#bookrecommendation#superpowers#doorsofdurin#lotr#tolkien#minesofmoria#towerofbooks#booktower#bookgirl#bookstagrammer#instabook#igread#iamreading#reader#bookcommunity#booklove#bookish#bookworm#steelheart#jrrtolkien#bookaddict

What's your fondest bookish memory? 📚 Thank you for the free book, @doubledaybooks ! * 📚SYNOPSIS📚 * Shelley Stone might be a little overwhelmed. She runs the company Conch, the manufacturer of a small wearable device that attaches to the user's ear and whispers helpful advice and prompts. She's married with two small children, Nova and Blazer, both of whom are learning Mandarin. She employs a cook, a nanny, a driver, and an assistant, she sets an alarm for 2AM conference calls, and occasionally takes a standing nap while waiting in line when she's really exhausted. Shelley takes Dramamine so she can work in the car; allows herself ten almonds when hungry; swallows Ativan to stave off the panic attacks; and makes notes in her day planner to "practice being happy and relatable." But when Shelley meets a young woman named Shelley Stone who has the exact same scar on her shoulder, Shelley has to wonder: Is some sort of corporate espionage afoot? Has she discovered a hole in the space-time continuum? Or is she finally buckling under all the pressure? 📚 #funnypic#bookstagram#instabook#raedelbianco#bookgirl#bookworm#literatur#kitaplar#literature#booklove#read#reader#libros#livrestagram#literarylove#bookshop#bookstore#library#bookishfeature#cititoridinromania#iubescsacitesc#citesc#doubledaybooks#theglitch#elisabethcohen#randomhouse#penguinrandomhouse

Thanks for the free book @doubledaybooks! 📚 What books are you excited to read this month? (Sorry @james_trevino, I kinda stole your question). 📚 Social Creature by Tara Isabella Burton is one of the books I'm excited to read this month. That is, if my life lets me 😅 I don't have a reading slump. I repeat. I do NOT have a reading slump. The only thing I want is to read all day. And it is for this reason that I'm not doing it, because I'd turn into a monster and stop doing anything else, and that would be bad because there are things that I have to do! Anyway, Social Creature has a lot of good reviews on Goodreads and I plan on adding my own review (a.k.a. starting the book). Right now I'm reading Broken Mirrors by @mariemcwilliamsauthor and I'm loving it but I can read only a few pages (and that if I'm not super tired before going to bed). But I'm getting there. I'm getting there. 📚 SOCIAL CREATURE SYNOPSIS 📚 For readers of Gillian Flynn and Donna Tartt, a dark, propulsive and addictive debut thriller, splashed with all the glitz and glitter of New York City. * They go through both bottles of champagne right there on the High Line, with nothing but the stars over them... They drink and Lavinia tells Louise about all the places they will go together, when they finish their stories, when they are both great writers-to Paris and to Rome and to Trieste... * Lavinia will never go. She is going to die soon. * Louise has nothing. Lavinia has everything. After a chance encounter, the two spiral into an intimate, intense, and possibly toxic friendship. A Talented Mr. Ripley for the digital age, this seductive story takes a classic tale of obsession and makes it irresistibly new. 📚 ***to be published on June 5th*** 📚 #socialcreature#doubledaybooks#doubleday#taraisabellaburton#bookstagram#instabook#kitaplat#literatur#bookgirl#bookworm#reading#read#reader#arc#booklove#bookish#bookaholic#bookalcoholic#bucher#libro#literature#bookpic#bookstagrammer

Tell me something about you 📚 A few days ago I talked about my struggles with body image and how I learned to love and accept myself. Now I’m going to talk about something that doesn’t have a happy ending (yet). And that is anxiety. 📚 The first time I realised there was something wrong was 2-3 years ago. I was super agitated and I couldn’t breathe properly. Back then I blamed it on coffee and on some things going on in my life, but when those things ended, I continued feeling like that. Still, I didn’t know what I was dealing with because those moments where very random and I was like “suck it up Liz & move yo’ ass, why you so lame?!”. I’ve never been the kind of person that was scared of talking in front of people or afraid of challenges and that still stands. I was/am an introvert, but an introvert with an attitude if that makes sense :)) So the word anxiety didn’t even cross my mind. That simply wasn’t me. 📚 Fast forward a few months later. I was writing and editing and thinking that it has to be PERFECT. And I realised I couldn’t breathe. But this time it was different. This time I realised there was a trigger, not just the coffee, and that it meant something. And I started to hunt the triggering things. Which were the most pathetic things you could imagine. Most of them (the big ones) I’m not comfortable sharing (because I’m anxious to even mention them), but I can give you some examples. At the beginning of this account I was anxious even when I had to answer the comments (not anymore, but wtf!). A friend of mine just told me that his “friend” stole the code they both worked on for 2 years (which triggered instant anxiety because what if this sort of thing happens to me too?). Sometimes I’m saying some harmless thing to someone and I just go into infinite loop of wondering if that person got upset (talking about it helped a lot and in 99% of the cases the other person didn’t even remember, because, again, I’m worrying about stupid things). 📚 CONTINUES IN THE COMMENTS 📚 #bookstagram#bodyimage#bodypositive#bosypositivity#anxiety#lectura#leitura#lecture#booknerdigans#bookmoments#gymlife#epicreads#harrypotter#slythering#gryffindor#ravenclaw

What are you currently reading? 📚 Congrats to our SHADOWHUNTERS/THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS giveaway, @julie_in_bookland 📚 I was overwhelmed by your messages following yesterday's post. It really put things into perspective. 📚 I just finished ACOFAS and it was just as good as I hoped it would be and just as short as I knew it would be. It had a sneak peek from the next book which I didn't expect! Another thing that I didn't expect was the number of new POVs!❤ 📚 This series made me realise (lol did you realise this just NOW?) how important it is to have a strong female character. Feyre rocks! I loved it so much and it was so good to go back to this world, but I'll give it a 4.5/5 because it was short and it didn't have a clear plot, it was just... stuff that happened after ACOWAR. 📚 I have no pics with ACOFAS so this will have to do. 📚 #bookstagram#acofas#sarahjmaas#acotar#acowar#harrypotter#voldemort#literature#literatur#kitaplar#flatlay#bookgirl#bookmania#bookworld#booklove#bookish#instabook#bookworms#bookaddict#bookaholic#igread#igreads

Following yesterday’s stories about my WhatsApp status and after reading your DM
Following yesterday’s stories about my WhatsApp status and after reading your DMs, I decided to share with you some things. * When I fell in love in the middle grade, I thought that the only reason why it wasn’t working was the fact that I was fat. I have no idea where this came from. First of all, I wasn’t fat. Second, how was I so brainwashed at such a young age (6th grade lol)?! I wasn’t even paying attention to „the ideal female body” back then, so I have no idea why I chose this explanation. Middle grade came and went and here I was at high-school, falling in love again, this time with a guy who was a gym rat. So this time I started running and going to the gym to impress him, eating less and wondering if I should take the pills that he was offering me for weight loss. Again, I wasn’t fat. I wasn’t fit either, but I wasn’t having weight problems. I continued like this more or less in the next few years. It hasn’t been a continuous effort. I was taking breaks and starting again because tbh I had no idea what I was doing and I had to concentrate on other things, like the final exams and stuff. Then college came. After one and a half terrible years and some wrong choices, at the beginning of 2015 I started going to the gym again. By the end of 2015 I was looking perfect. But I couldn’t see it. I was so starved that I had to send my old high-school crush a pic with my abs and ask him if I’m looking good (I didn’t want attention, I simply couldn’t realise if I’m where I wanted to be). And then I binge ate, so that by the beginning of April I was in the same place – having lost all my progress, purging, binging, feeling guilty, purging again, looking in the mirror and crying, thinking that I’m in the same place as years before, having no energy whatsoever, having skin problems, thinking that I desperately need a change because obviously what I was doing wasn’t working, trapped in this cycle, thinking that I will lose my mind if I’m going down this path any further. I was a mess and I had hit rock bottom. * (CONTINUES IN THE COMMENTS) * #bookstagram#bodyimage#bodypositive#bodypositivity#lectura#leitura#lecture#booknerdigans#bookmoments#gymlife#epicreads
