Reviews are coming!!

Hello Friends!

I know I have said this many times over the last couple of month but this cold and flu season is kicking my butt!  For the last week my nose had resembled Rudolph’s and I swear it was glowing. I haven’t been feeling super terrible, it’s just been one cold after another and each one manifesting differently.

That being said, I have been reading! There will be reviews forthcoming about The Night Circus, My Not So Perfect Life and Heartless!

Also, we’re quickly coming up on the release of A Court of Wings and Ruin and I wanted to remind you that I’ll be doing a giveaway on my Instagram (@loveabibliophile) for the Indigo Exclusive hard cover edition and some other goodies! It will be worth it and it will be international!

How has everyone else’s Spring been so far? What wonderful books have you read? Once I get through my rather large tbr pile, which includes titles like Love & Gelato, The Star Touched Queen, The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop and Café and Into a Dark, Dark Wood, I will be looking for recommendations!

Hello Friends!

I’ve been super busy reading The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, originally published back in 2011 it has recently gained a lot of traction among the Instagram book community.

After reading Caraval, I was itching to get back into the circus feel! I’m just over halfway through and I am LOVING it. Erin Morgenstern’s writing is so descriptive and vivid, it draws you in and makes you feel like you are wandering around the circus. The book is beautifully weighty and I love the fact that I haven’t been able to read it all in an entire day like I did with Caraval. I can’t wait to finish it and find out what happens and to share my thoughts with you all!

I’ve been watching iZombie on Netflix, has anyone else seen this? It’s not your typical zombie show. I’m really enjoying it! Who would have thought that eating certain brains could allow you to learn kung-fu, Russian or paint like a master? It’s a nice take on zombie!

I also picked up twisty-mysteries In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10 both by Ruth Ware, those will be my next reads!

Also, coming up in the next week will by my OwlCrate March box unboxing and my Nerdy Post Box! I’ll just tell you now… AH-MAZ-ING!!!

Spring has Sprung!

Hello Friends!

Happy first day of Spring! I hope it’s beautiful where you are. Currently, it’s overcast with sunny breaks and 9°c here. Yesterday, it was SO warm that we had to open all the windows in our apartment. I’m not sure but I think my hubby turned off the gas fireplace (our only source of heat) because we woke up this morning just freezing.

I went to Ikea on Friday night and bought a third bookshelf. I think I have room for one more half width one to fill the wall, but I’ll have to do some precise measuring. It will be a tight squeeze! So Saturday I spent putting the shelf together and organizing my little library. I’m not completely satisfied with the aesthetic of how the books look, but it will come. I really enjoy the look of rainbow shelves but I don’t think I have enough colour diversity. 😦 It’s very pretty though!

I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump the last week and a half. So bad in fact, I haven’t even picked up a book! *shocking I know* I don’t think it helps that I’ve been sick with the worlds weirdest cold. I still can’t hear properly out of my left ear 😦 It could also be because I need something… new. Like a new genre. I’ve been reading a lot of YA fantasy lately and the book I’ve been struggling with, Storm Siren, is yet another YA fantasy. So, I put Storm Siren away for now and started P.S. I Still Love You, today at lunch. It’s YA contemporary and the first one was so darn cute and I can already see myself reading through this very quickly.

Any suggestions on what I should read next? I was thinking Himself, The Wanderers or The Lonely Hearts Hotel. What are you currently reading? Anything amazing on your TBR?
