We made it to Friday! And it's nearly March! I saw my first lambs a couple of days ago; Spring is doing her best to arrive despite Winter putting up quite alot of resistance!! Wishing you a great day X
Cijeli osvrt potražite na blogu, link je u bio. „Posejdonov pad“ prva je knjiga serijala o palim anđelima kojima je autorica dala vrlo važnu misiju-spasiti svijet od tame. Kroz roman upoznat ćete Posejdona, Hada, Daniela, Heru, Atenu, Ares, Apolona, Afroditu, Hermesa i mnoge druge mitološke likove na neki drugačiji način. Oni su prikazani u svoj svojoj slavi kao i u svom svojem grijehu dok pokušavaju svijet spasiti od Hada, ali neće biti nimalo lako suprotstaviti se Hadovoj mračnoj strani. I ne samo da ćete upoznati pobliže sve njih nego ćete doista uživati čitajući njihove moderne dijaloge primjerene današnjem vremenu i to će vam uvelike pomoći da svijet gledan njihovim očima dublje doživite.
'What is a warrior of light?' 'You already know that,' she replied with a smile. 'He is someone capable of understanding the miracle of life, of fighting to the last for something he believes in - and of hearing the bells that the waves sets ringing on the seabed.' He had never thought himself as a warrior of light. The woman seemed to read his thoughts. 'EVERYONE IS CAPABLE OF THESE THINGS. AND, THOUGH NO ONE THINKS OF THEMSELVES AS A WARRIOR OF LIGHT, WE ALL ARE.'
The warrior of light is a believer. Because he believes in miracles, miracles begin to happen.

“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library”
➖Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
‘First Impressions’ (universally known to be the original title of the book!) may not necessarily be the last impression but it’s a lasting one, that’s for sure and very true to ‘Pride and Prejudice’!
📚Folio Society books are always so gorgeous, and this edition has such a charming cover, it can be framed! Also the illustrations inside are so vibrant! Glad to have this copy in my home library! (This I think is the 7th copy of the text from different editions, I know I can’t help myself ♥️)
💐 P.S. These flowers are from Galentine’s Day and by some miracle they are still thriving!! ♥️
A Temporary Boyfriend is book two of The Fake Love Series by @summers_pen
This book and series so far just makes me happy! If you want a happy wholesome read I highly recommend this series! This is a beautiful, clean, sweet romance and I love it. The yellow on the cover is the perfect color for this series. Madison & Eric's relationship was so sweet and seeing both of there points of views was the best!
A Temporary Boyfriend: The Fake Love Series Is available for preorder today!
Book synopsis: "I need a boyfriend. For the weekend."
"Type A Madison Hudson has spent the last six years working toward the nutritionist position that’s almost in her grasp. She’s got the qualifications, the schooling, the perfect resume; all that’s left is to impress her future boss. Something a white lie about an imaginary boyfriend can achieve.
Computer nerd Eric Ward usually stays away from drama. But when his sister's roommate needs a boyfriend for a night, he can’t find an excuse to say no. How hard can one evening be? Pity no one told him what a knockout his fake girlfriend would be."
I was lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of this book & my thoughts are all my own.

Tonight, I'm finally watching @toalltheboysnetflix#psistillloveyou on Netflix. I'm behind, I know, I know. But better late than never? (Also, mad props to the design team for this gorgeous blue/teal and yellow/gold color palette that is used so consistently throughout the movie, from props and furniture to clothing to iconic moments with lanterns and jellyfish. It's really cohesive and lovely!)
📚 I'm glad @netflix is bringing the whole trilogy to film and introducing new fans to the series. I think Lara Jean would approve of today's scrapbooking collage -- it's a hobby right up her alley!
To celebrate, I'm re-sharing the link from the fun interview I did with @jennyhan + @simonteen last year for @officialbroadwayworld! If you missed it then, check it out tonight!

I’ve been absolutely loving my #aftershokz headphones for my morning runs, lately. They’re bone conducting so I can still hear everything going on around me. Added bonus? I can keep “reading” and just take my books on audio while I go. 🤗
Tras la huella de Pearl jam libro escrito por el periodista y querido amigo Henrik Tuxen lanzado al español gracias a @librosdementira La versión en inglés se titula The more you need the less you get.

Alice in Wonderland vibes
Added a new shelf to the library last night for my Alice in Wonderland collection (you can take a look at it in my stories if you like). It’s so nice to get them off the floor finally. It’s definitely the biggest collection in my library.
What’s a book you love to collect in multiple editions?
The Virago Modern Classics Designer Collection is one of the prettiest in my library, so I’m always thrilled when a new title is released. And I love that the series features women writers. The latest, The Ghost Stories of Edith Wharton, just arrived. Isn’t she a beauty?
Do you collect these? Do you have a favourite female author you think should be a part of the collection?
Happy #ShelfieSunday !
As I’ve been scrolling the #bookstagram hashtag over the weekend, I’m amazed at how this book community has grown. Bookstagram has been my safe haven to connect with fellow readers, and it makes me so happy to see more people joining our little corner (AKA the best corner) of Instagram. ♥️

The only thing that could make these Wordsworth editions even prettier is adding some of the roses my 16 year old son gave me for Valentine’s. ❤️ Do you collect these?
Happy Sunday everyone!
