#bellesjulybookishchallenge Day 15: Favorite Author - it took some time to decide, so many authors are so talented. But I noticed out of my favorites, most of them I liked because of the plot of their book, but only a few because of their writing. My favorite author who I think has the best writing is @vrothbooks I have never read any other writing like hers, she’s very good at world building. And I love the similes and metaphors she uses. Here’s a bit from The Fates Divide describing a planet. . “Ogra had come into sight as a small, dark gap in the stars ahead, and then the gap had turned into a hole, like a stray ember burned through fabric. And now it loomed darkly above the nav deck, devouring every fragment of light in its vicinity. I wondered how the first settlers had even known it was a planet. It looked more like a yawn.” . If you haven’t read any of her books, go check them out!!!

What has everyone been up to on this Sunday? I have been playing and watching Pokémon all day, and I also started reading The Unexpected Everything. I’m just spending the day relaxing before going back to work for the week tomorrow. #bellesjulybookishchallenge Day 15: Favorite Author

#bellesjulybookishchallenge Favorite Author • Sarah J. Maas. I love her writing style and world building. Her books are just AMAZING. ➖🌻➖🌻➖🌻➖🌻➖🌻➖ #taletimejulyphotochallenge Favorite Series • I’m currently reading ACOWAR and it’s so amazing that it’s such a close call on which series of Sarah J Maas I like better. The Throne of Glass series or the ACOTAR series? I’ve said Throne of Glass for a while but now that I’m finishing up ACOWAR, I might have to say both. ➖🌻➖🌻➖🌻➖🌻➖🌻➖ The Thirteen Blackbeak Coven pin from @dustandpages • • #erinelizabethreads #bibliophile #fairylights #reader #enamelpin #throneofglass #favoriteauthor #favoriteseries #hand #bookseries #bookreader #bookworm #bookaholic #bookstagram #bookstagramer #bookspines #bookchallenge #booknerd #booklove #bookphotography #ilovereading

#bellesjulybookishchallenge Day 14: book and candle 🌿 What’s one of your favorite candle scents? I love the fall scents, especially apple and cinnamon :)

Good morning, friends! Happy Saturday! I received this gorgeous exclusive Corvere candle from @geekyclean in my June @fairyloot and I love it so much!! And it’s my very first pink candle, can you believe it?! I’ve seen a bunch of color variations from other folks’ unboxings though, so if you received this too, what color was yours? 🗡 I think Mia from Nevernight is my favorite badass female from any book! I cannot wait for the final installment in the series that will be released next year. Who is your fave fierce female character? 🗡 August's FairyLoot theme is "MUTINOUS PIRATES". The book is a fabulous pirate story inspired by the Spanish Inquisition. It's filled with magic, adventure and you guessed it—mutiny! It is a FairyLoot exclusive and will have sprayed pages and will actually be signed by the author! This box will feature items inspired by Shadow and Bone, To Kill A Kingdom, Pirates of the Caribbean and Daughter of the Pirate King. Snag yours soon, and make sure to use my exclusive discount code CANDACE5 to save on your 3or 6-month subscription! 🗡 #fairyloot #fairylootrep #candace5 #rebelsinballgowns #graceandfury #mybuddy008283 #corvere #nevernight #jaykristoff #stabstabstab #bookishcandles #asongofjuly #scrjuly18 #duskangeljuly18 #fantasynaticsummer #bwsbookishjulychallenge #bookloverfairycontest #amillionadventures #novelbeanjuly #taletimejulyphotochallenge #rainbowsjuly18 #thejulychronicles #bookqueensjuly18 #bellesjulybookishchallenge #bookbookowlrainbowjuly #meltingpagesjuly #readgushjuly18

I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON! We have an appraiser coming to my house and so my dad had a neighbor come over at 8amish to do some things, the drill is going and it's ALMOST 9 now and it's just been one of those MAJOR CRAZY CRAZY BUSY week 😬 but I'm back! I'll just be glad when this week is done I'm so tired and exhausted 😴😴 And I DON'T want to think about August 🙈🙈 oh well. I can do it haha. Welcome to adulting and life is all I say. 🤷 . . So I'm posting and combining the last 4 days of my challenges. . . #bellesjulybookishchallenge audiobook or physical 🌹 well, I do like physical but when I can I normally do audiobook for a few reasons. By Dad's bipolar and so I like to have music going with earbuds but if I can also find an audiobook through overdrive or RBDigital I'm good. Plus with some books it helps me focus to have someone read out loud cause of my learning disability and can help me comprehend a bit more; Free day: your choice; #fridaythe13th Chapter 13🌹 if you can't read it it's from Red Pyramid and it's entitled I FACE THE KILLER TURKEY 😅🤷; book and candle. . . #fangirlinginjuly open book; book recommendation 🌹 Coraline and The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman; flatlay; standalone 🌹 Coraline. . . Happy Saturday and reading bookworms! What are reading this weekend? I've got 3: Assassin's Blade, Prince of Thorns and Mistress of Rome. #bookstagram #bookworm #bookwormproblems #bookish #book #books #read #reading #booklover #booklove #bookandcandle #bookandcandles #acourtofcandles #coraline #neilgaiman #openbook #flatlay #redpyramid #rickriordan #reader #summer #summerreading

Good morning! Happy Saturday? What are your plans for the day? I slept in a bit today which was so nice. Now I have to shower and then I think I’ll be spending the day cleaning/organizing/packing my room up while listening to an audiobook. My room has become a bit of a disaster since I started working because I just throw clothes around looking for what I want to wear to work and then am too tired to clean it up when I get home. #bellesjulybookishchallenge Day 14: Book and Candle

Happy Friday the 13!! Do you believe this day is one of bad or good luck? I peronally think it’s more of a good luck kind of day, but nothing good ever happens to me on Friday the 13, soo it’s more like a regular day... the challenge for #bellesjulybookishchallenge is Friday the 13: chapter 13!

I am desperate need of photos for next week. I have a few done but not enough to get me through the week, and I like to be a week ahead on photos because of work. I’m so tired and I wish I was sleeping right now. I thought about taking a nap, because I have to be up at 10:30pm for when my friend streams so I can moderate her chat. I’m happy to help out but I am so exhausted from work. #readwinjuly18 Day 13: Open Book #bellesjulybookishchallenge Day 13: Friday the 13th: Chapter 13

Regrann from @not.just.fiction - It's been barely two days since I got back to school and three tests are lined up already. Smh 🙄 . Currently hit pause on my reading through I really want to finish my re-read of Carry On and Train to Pakistan that I had started for Indian Lit Readathon. That was a huge success by the way, thank you to all those who participated ❤️ . . QOTD: Do you prefer taking Bookstagram pictures outside or inside?

QOTD ;; Do you ever feel bad for standing up for yourself? . People really really good at manipulating others are very able to make you feel bad for standing up to them. Luckily, I don’t think most people are actually that skilled but I tend to be the type of person that feels bad for just about everything. When I was a kid, I often said ‘sorry’ for things that I shouldn’t have been sorry for. It’s very easy for me to feel bad when I think I’m hurting someone. Is anyone else like this too? 🤔 .

Late in the day, but today was busy with work and getting off super late, etc...but! That won’t stop me. ———————————————— QOTD: Do you own any books in a different language? - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - AOTD: I own a few in Spanish, but my main reason for owning them is because I wanted to get my mom into reading with me lol.

I also own these two, I’m just missing Catching Fire. ———————————————— #bellesjulybookishchallenge - free day/your choice. ———————————————— #Bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booknerd #bookworm #booksinspanish #losjuegosdelhambre #sinsajo #illuminaecandle #candle #bookishcandle #foreignlanguage #foreignbooks #bookstagramallstar #tronodecristal #thehungergames #throneofglass

Ahhh finally all caught up! So for day 12 of the #bookbookowlrainbowjuly challenge it was two colours that you think go well together. If you haven’t gathered, I think red and black goes well together. And for #bellesjulybookishchallenge is was a freebie, so I decided to make them the same because I couldn’t think of anything else. I know lazy right? • • • #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinsta #bookaddict #book #booklove #booklover #books #booklife #fireblood #catchingfire #hungergamesseries #cress #winter #lunarchronicles #readersofinstagram #readersofinsta #read #reader #reading📖
