'Death In Spring' is a book I could read and reread and still not fathom all its secrets. It is mysterious and haunting, equal parts brutal and beautiful, with lines such as, 'Souls have no mouth, so they spoke to us through the voice of the wind' and 'Death lives within the tree, like the butterfly within the caterpillar.' My reread was inspired after seeing it pop up on bookstagram a few times this month, and I am just as enchanted by Mercè Rodoreda's writing second time round ✨🌙 What has been your favourite read this spring? . . . . . #bookstagram #bookish #libraryofinstagram #culturetripbooks #bookishfeatures #booksbooksbooks #idratherbereading #bookworm #bookdragon #readersoninstagram #flatlayforever #literaturelover #literaryfiction #iloveliterature #amreading #readmakegrow #bookishgirl #readersoninstagram #instabooks #underthefloralspell #facethespring #openletterrochester #mercerodoreda #penguinbooks #penguinbooksuk

Perfect time to get some power reading done and enjoy the smell of #Petrichor (one of my favorite smells in all the world!) 🌹 📖 🌹 📖 🌹 📖 🌹 📖 🌹 📖 🌹 #BookishLife #InspiredByBelle #BookNerd #BelleOfTheBookcase #🌹🕯️🕰️ #BelletristBabe #Bookster #Belletrist #LitCurious #readers #Readaholic #bookstagram #📖 #BookWorm  #BookAddict #BookBlogger #BookBlog #Bibliophile #IdRatherBeReading #BookSlut #AndHerNoseStuckInABook

For anyone asking about my plans for the long weekend. #BooksOnBooksOnBooks #IdRatherBeReading #ITookMyKindleToTheGym

Not finished with the last one yet but will this weekend and also going to start this right away so I can read The Outsiders 😈 addicted to Stephen King!!! ••••• “Because things can get better, and if you give them a chance, they usually do.” ••••• “‘If life hands you lemons, make lemonade!’ Words to live by, especially when you kept in mind that the only way to make them into lemonade was to squeeze the hell out of them.” ••••• “It’s about how some people carelessly squander what others would sell their souls to have: a healthy, pain-free body. And why? Because they’re too blind, too emotionally scarred, or too self-involved to see past the earth’s dark curve to the next sunrise. Which always comes, if one continues to draw breath.”

First- can we all agree that this cover is breathtaking? I love it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This YA book transported me into a creepy world of dark, fairy tale make-believe. The writing was so vivid that I felt like I was there, complete with tingling nerves and accelerated heart rate. Have you read it yet? What did you think? #summerstooshort ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #kariann96reads #bookish #whatkarireads2018 #2018books #bookstagram #read #booklove #booktime #idratherbereading #bookworm_insta #bibliophile #booknerd #bestbookgrams #booksofinstagram #books #bookstagrammer #bookreviews #book #bookrecommendations #whatiread #reading #igreads #featuringbookstagram #bookish #readingisnotacompetition

The Wedding Date // ⭐️⭐️💫 // My first Summer Reading Guide pick (no holds at the library and ticked the box of a light read), unfortunately this wasn’t for me. I enjoy light romcom type books but the plot was too predictable and I felt like we went from sex scene to food and back again the whole time.

Memorial Day weekend means summer, which to me has always meant summer reading. Nothing beats sitting in the sunshine with a good book. NOTHING. I already had a few selections from @annebogel's MMD summer reading guide on my shelf, but I definitely ran out and grabbed a few more the day the list came out. Beartown isn't technically on this year's guide, but I need to read it before I read Us Against You, so I'm including it anyways (also I have to read it so I can FINALLY chat about it with @kathareads). Have you read any of these ones yet? Do you have a summer reading plan? Or some must-read books lined up? Tell me what your reading life (and your life in general) is going to look like for the next few months! . . . . . . . #bookstack #summerreading #summerreads #goodreads #amreading #summerstooshort #idratherbereading #alwaysreading #bookshelf #booksonbooks #bookish #bookishfeatures #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #booklove #bookporn #ilovereading #ilovebooks #booknerdigans #bookworm #readersgonnaread #readersofinstagram #igreads #booksandplants

Does anyone have the same weakness as us??

Spent today curled up with a book. What did you do today?

Hopefully my view for the majority of my long holiday weekend. . . . . . #bookstagram #bookish #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #bibliophile #idratherbereading

Q: What genres do you gravitate towards? Which genres do you need to read more of? . Today's prompt hit on both of those genres for me. I love a good dystopian. The way different authors deconstruct and then rebuild society fascinates me. I'm always amazed by the creativity that shows. And looking at my shelves you can tell. There are a couple more dystopian series gracing my shelves that just didn't fit in the picture. I was actually sad to see that I don't really have any Sci Fi on my shelves. (Does The 100 count?) Especially considering how much of it I read as a teen. So, if you have any suggestions for YA science fiction for me to read, definitely let me know. I need to read more of it ASAP. . 🌼 #MayBookstagram18: Dystopian or Space 🌼 MayWithSteph18: Cherry Blossoms: book and flowers 🌼 #NotYourAveragePages: #stacksaturday . . . #amreading #amreadingya #yabookstagram #yabookclub #bookishlife #bookishgirl #bookishgirls #bookishgirlgang #bookphotoshoot #bookphotographer #bookphotoaday #bookalicious #bibliophile #booksworthreading #booksoninstagram #idratherbereading #bookchallenge2018 #readerlifestyle #bookishlifestyleblog #readingnow #readallthebooks #thehungergames #suzannecollins #thechemicalgardenstrilogy #laurendestafano

I’d ALWAYS rather be reading. It’s nothing personal. Unless it’s Stranger Things. Or Marvel. Or Riverdale. Or Timeless. QOTD: Do you have a favorite tv show? I couldn’t possibly choose. I have too many that I love! I’m still in love with this pouch from @nerdy.post in the Stranger things box. This quickly became my money pouch for craft/vendor shows! #idratherbereading #friendsdontlie #strangerthings #eleven #nerdypost #thegeekilibrarian #bookish #bookishpendant #bookishjewelry

“I solemnly swear I am up to no good.” . . . Watching two of my favorite world's collide, is a feeling of pure joy: tattoos and books. Welcome to the family, new tattoo! You are only the first piece of my Harry Potter half sleeve, second piece to my book themed full sleeve. I already can not wait till July 6th for the next piece! . . . Can you pick out the seven different elements that make up this one piece? So many more elements will be added with time! . . . #tattoo #hptattoo #harrypottertattoo #always #harrypotter #hp #ravenclaw #hogwarts #pickupabook #ravenclawpride #sorting #lunalovegood #timeturner #bookishlove #idratherbereading #eatsleepread #booklover #bookworm #bookstagram #bibliophile #booksaremyeverything #booknerd #bookphotography  #reader #readersofig  #readersofinstagram  #alwaysreading #pickupabook

Finished reading this gem I found at the local library sale. I would call it a heart-wrenchingly haunting medieval tale. #idratherbereading #historicalfiction

Quick sneak peek of the May @litjoycrate. I have been working so hard to get to a place where I can afford a regular subscription and I'm finally there!!! It meant giving up a few things, but as I've been saying #booksbeforeburgers... Lol. I am so excited to read this book, btw, it sounds like exactly the find of plot I love. I can't believe I didn't even know about it until Thursday. . There's a FULL unboxing in my stories for at least a few more hours and I'm working on getting the one I filmed for my BookTube channel up ASAP. . . . #amreading #amreadingya #yabookstagram #yabookclub #bookishlife #bookishgirl #bookishgirls #bookishgirlgang #bookphotoshoot #bookphotographer #bookphotoaday #bookalicious #bibliophile #booksworthreading #booksoninstagram #idratherbereading #bookchallenge2018 #readerlifestyle #bookishlifestyleblog #readingnow #readallthebooks #sharethelitjoy #litjoycrate #onyxandivory #mindeearnett

Happy Weekend to all of my bookish kindred spirits! I hope it is everything wonderful! 💗

I tried a TBR list this month and while I did read 3 of the books, I felt so restricted! These are titles I would LIKE to get to this summer but I’m not forcing or “should-ing” myself into anything. I know plenty of new releases are going to pull me in. I blame @annebogel. 🙈 . . . . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #books #igreads #booknerd #bookworm #bookish #bookaddict #idratherbereading #booksofig #readeverydamnday #bookaddict #readingislife #summerreading
