A cozy day with a great read. I’m currently reading Gods of Jade & Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia, and am fully engrossed in the story. I have been a huge fan of this author ever since I read her novel, Signal to Noise (highly recommend), so anytime there is a new book it automatically makes it to my TBR. And so far this novel has my full attention.😊 . The Jazz Age is in full swing, but Casiopea Tun is too busy cleaning the floors of her wealthy grandfather’s house to listen to any fast tunes. Nevertheless, she dreams of a life far from her dusty small town in southern Mexico. A life she can call her own. . Yet this new life seems as distant as the stars, until the day she finds a curious wooden box in her grandfather’s room. She opens it—and accidentally frees the spirit of the Mayan god of death, who requests her help in recovering his throne from his treacherous brother. Failure will mean Casiopea’s demise, but success could make her dreams come true. . In the company of the strangely alluring god and armed with her wits, Casiopea begins an adventure that will take her on a cross-country odyssey from the jungles of Yucatán to the bright lights of Mexico City—and deep into the darkness of the Mayan underworld. . . . #amreading #currentlyreading #godsofjadeandshadow #booksandbeans #bookblogger #halifaxblogger #aboutabook #booksandlattes #bookish #bookstagram #booksharks #cozy #bookstagramfeature #bookstagrammer #readersofinstagram #whattoreadnext
“But in a solitary life, there are rare moments when another soul dips near yours, as stars once a year brush the earth. Such a constellation was he to me.” . So, Circe, you have the honour of being my favourite book out of everything I read last year.☺️ A compelling and beautifully written novel that I really want to reread. When looking back at the books I read over the course of 2019, this is the one that keeps drawing me back. I have heard that the audiobook version is exceptional, so it may be perfect to experience it in that format as well. I have posted my favourite books of 2019 (there are four 😁), link is in the bio if you’re interested. . What was your favourite book that you read this past year? . . . #bookblogger #favouritebooks #favouritebooks2019 #bookstagram #booksandbeans #circe #madelinemiller #cafe #coffeeshots #bookfeaturepage #booksandbeans #halifaxblogger #bookstagramfeature #bookstagrammer #readersofinstagram #booksharks #aboutabook
Best wishes to all for the New Year!✨ 2019 was a year of new ventures and challenges. One of my favourite quotes this time of year comes from Neil Gaiman, which perfectly sums up the value of mistakes. So along with the hope for joy and adventure in 2020, may there be many new and wonderful mistakes.💛 . “I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. . So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. . Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it. . Make your mistakes, next year and forever.” – Neil Gaiman . . . #happynewyear #happynewyear2020 #neilgaiman #neilgaimanquote #bookstagram #travelphotography #bookblogger #bookworm #bookish #aboutabook #halifaxblogger #photography #wishfor2020 #quotes
Aiming for a relaxing and productive Sunday.😊 Also, I’m breaking out the reading socks! . This week I have been making my way through a stack of Agatha Christie mysteries, which have been pretty enjoyable. Usually I always have a book on my radar that I’m excited for, but this year they have been far and few between. So, I have been going for cozy mysteries. This winter I think I will do a reread of some of my favourite books. I don’t reread books very often so I’m excited to revisit some familiar stories.💛 . Are there books you are excited to read this winter? I would love some ideas! . . . . #amreading #bookblogger #bookstagram #cozy #socksunday #booksandbeans #indigoweekend #currentlyreading #bookish #readersofinstagram #reading #booksandlattes #booksharks #aboutabookreviews #bookstagrammer #bookstagramfeature #bookfeaturepage #indigofaves
Now this sounds like a book made for fall reading.🍁 Thank you @ecwpress for the copy! #WhereIsHoney . When 24-year-old Nicole Hewett’s beloved childhood friend, Honey, returns to their small northern town after an unexplained six-year absence, Nicole realizes how her life had stalled without her. But the prodigal returns with troubling secrets, and before long Nicole is drawn into a high-stakes game. Honey is a thrilling, sensuous modern noir novel with a classic refrain: nothing is more dangerous than love. . . . . #bookmail #bookblogger #halifaxblogger #honeybook #booksandbeans #amreading #currentlyreading #books #bookfeaturepage #ecwpress #bookish #readersofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagramfeature #bookstagrammer #whattoreadnext
