#QOTD: What does it take for you to DNF a book? . I’m a hard core book-finisher. If I think there’s a chance I may like the ending I’ll stick it out. BUT I’ve come across a few books recently that I just haven’t had the will to finish. It’s tough for me to DNF something, but after some good advice from my friend @nadinebrandes - life is too short to read books you don’t love. What about you? . . ❣Don't forget to join the fun by tagging #createexploreread 📷 . . . #bookstack #booknerdigans #literaturejunkies #bookster #bookoftheday #bookishthings #vscobooks #ilovebooks #bookworm #bookish #bookaddict #bookstore #bookshelf #bookshelfstyling #bookcase #booktower #bookpages #bookstacks #polkadots #creativebookphotography #ireadya #dnf #tbr #amreading #currentlyreading

Today’s prompt for #ImperfectlyPerfectAug18 is the best representation of you. And that got me thinking about how I define myself and how others do as well. ⠀ .⠀ While this photo isn’t perfect, nor does it perfectly represent me, I feel like it speaks to my soul and captures when I’m my happiest. ⠀ .⠀ Buying a house at 23 was a huge deal for me. It’s been a goal I’ve been working toward since before college. Recently I bought a glider for my front porch and it’s my instant happy place, it makes me even happier that my pups love it too. ⠀ .⠀ I love all things digital, so the Kindle was a good fit for this photo. My puppies are my life so of course they had to be in it too. ⠀ .⠀ Reading, relaxing, and snuggling puppies are a great representation of who I am. ⠀ .⠀ QOTD: What one item represents you? ⠀ 📚⠀ Day 15 of #ImperfectlyPerfectAug18 is #bestrepresentationofyou⠀ 📚⠀ Day 15 of #AllTheBooksAug18 is wish I’d read it sooner - on my kindle is a bio of The Fitzgeralds. And boy do I love it. ⠀ 📚⠀ Day 15 of #AuginBooks18 is cover with your favorite color. My favorite color is teal and my kindle cover matches that. ⠀ 📚⠀ #netgalley #netgalleyreadathon #firstreads #ARC #advancedreadingcopy #dogs #dogsofinstagram #dogsonadventures #dogsofinsta #dog #books #bookworm #booklover #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booktography #reading #booknerd #readerlife #booksaremylife #bookishthings #igbooks #booklove #readingstyles

Hello lovelies ♡ I recently received this lovely box from @goscribbler which is filled with all sort of goodies for amateur writers like me ✍🏽 Do you write? I love writing but I haven’t found time lately—but I think all the great stuff inside the box has inspired me to start again! ☺️

What is a book, movie, album, etc., that always make you feel better when you're having a bad day? 🐼🐼🐼 Any cartoon works for me. From Disney to Ghibli. Tho my favourite is Dreamworks 😁 .

"Such a beautiful place, to be with friends. Dobby is happy to be with his friend, Harry Potter." 🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦 I got this amazing jumbo @originalfunko Dobby at Target at the beginning of the summer, stashed him in my mess of classroom things, and forgot him! I was thrilled to find him as I was reorganizing before I move in to my class on Monday. It was like he was new all over again. Can't wait to find a good place for him in my new room.

↬ Would you rather live in medieval times, regency era, Victorian, 1920s or 1940s? . . I’ve reached 2000 followers now, thank you so much guys!! 🙏🏼🙏🏼 I think I’d like to live in the Victorian era honestly it’s my favourite time-period. The dresses, the suits & top hats, mannerisms & music. Or maybe even a twist with steampunk/supernatural vibes! ⋆ ✭ ⋆ I got this book from the OwlCrate August box and it’s all about a Jane Eyre Retelling with ghosts & comedy, it’s a riot and super creative and fun 😊💙 #ocstrange

When I first discovered bookstagram and everything that comes with it I became obsessed with cool bookish art prints (still am) and one artist whose style I adore and just feel meshes with my own is @eviebookish. I have purchases several of her prints from @society6. One of them is this lovely Six of Crows inspired print 😍 Anyhoo, I just felt like sharing 😋 . . . #bookstagram #bookishthings #bookish #ilovereading #ilovebooks #artprints #sixofcrows #leighbardugo #booknerd #bookgeek #currentlyreading #readingisbliss #read #reading #readingisfundamental

Happy Wednesday! QOTD: What is a song that makes you feel better? ________________________________________ I finished Unravel Me yesterday and I’m two books away for my goal for the year. I plan on reading more after I meet my goal and I must say I’m really surprised at how much I’m enjoying The Shatter me series. This weekend I plan on adventuring in the woods and hoping for not too many mosquito bites. My favorite song is Technicolour Beat by Oh Wonder it always makes me feel better about the day. —- Don’t forget today is the last day to enter our SFS it ends at 9pm pst. See past post for details. I hope you all have a wonderful day. ________________________________________ ___________________________________ #bookstagram #bookstabaddies #bookstagrammer #booknerd #booknerds #booknerdigans #booknerdigan #bookish #bookishfeatures #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #totalbooknerd #bookblog #bookblogger #bookbloggers #bookblogging #readersofinstagram #instaread #instareads #bookishgirl #bookishthings #yabooks #ilovereading #booklovers #lifestylebloggers #lifestyleblog #lifestyleblogger #bookcommunity #unitedbookstagram #culturetripbooks

“You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope.” -Persuasion by Jane Austen . Declarations are the best part of a romance. It’s the moment when reactive becomes active, the sting of words that changes everything. Before, they are not. After, they are. The trajectory of their lives will never be the same once those words are spoken. . Persuasion is one of my favorite romance novels of all time. There’s something so pervasive about the story, the longing and lost wishes, the evolution of Anne Elliot from silent submission to decisive action. . Retelling this work (A Thousand Letters) was not only a highlight of my career, but an honor. . What book contains your favorite declaration?

Zero pauses to look at me. "You still care deeply for him," he says quietly. "You think?" I snap. -Marie Lu, Wildcard —*— Who's excited for Wildcard?! 🙋🙋🙋 Got any clues on what's to happen? I sure do. Since @marieluthewriter has always been messing with OTPs so... I expect nothing more from Hideo and Emika. I think I already have accepted the fact that they won't be together. 😐 —*— AND! Speaking of OTPs, Why not grab theses adorable Emika Chen and Hideo Tanaka magnetic bookmarks on 20% off? Just visit @bibliofriends and grab them this August! 😵💕 And also! Don't forget their 1K giveaway! 😉🎉 —*— #bookstagramph #bookstagram #bibliophile #bibliophileph #booklover #bookaddict #booknerd #bookgram #booksporn #bookphotography #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookishfeed #bookishaesthetic #bookishthings #IGreads #IGBooks #YALit #YALover #YABook #YAbooks #mybookfeatures #bookstgramersph #bgphfamily

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” —On Writing by Stephen King ———————————————————————— How are we already halfway through August? 😮 Not that I’m complaining. That just means fall is even closer... 🍁🍂 I’m not gonna lie... I’m ready for cozy sweater-weather. (And apple cider donuts! 🤤) ••• I’ve been all over the place with this month’s reads. For the most part, I’ve done a good job of reading books on my August TBR. But I’m also a mood reader, so there’s been a lot of that happening, too. 🤷🏻‍♀️ ••• QOTD: Do you stick to your monthly TBRs? Or are you more of a mood reader?
