“many people, myself among them, feel better at the mere sight of a book.”—jane smiley

qotd: when you read a series, do you read all the books at once or read other books in between?

aotd: i usually read all the books in a series at once if i really enjoy them! sometimes i can’t get enough of the story and the characters, and i just have to find out what happens next.

i started reading the gray wolf throne last night and read a ton in one sitting! i’m hoping to read wildcard soon, i love marie lu’s writing. anyone else excited to read wildcard?

have a great day❤️

qotd: what are the next books you’re hoping to buy?

aotd: other than the new releases coming out soon, i’d love to buy legendary, call me by your name, a list of cages, letters to the lost, eliza and her monsters, and under rose-tainted skies! have you read any? what did you think?

thank you all for the helpful reading slump tips! i ended up picking up stephanie garber’s caraval (after it sitting on my shelf these past few years) and read it all in a few hours. tomorrow when i go to the bookstore i’ll be sure to get legendary!

have a lovely day💕
