“fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”—neil gaiman, coraline

qotd: do you have a favourite book with dragons? what books do you wish had dragons?

aotd: i really loved the last namsara! i still have yet to read the second companion novel, the caged queen, but i’m excited to☺️ i also loved the shattered realms series!

i finished nevernight last night! i’m not sure whether i’m going to read book 2 next or reread lady midnight and lord of shadows so i can read queen of air and darkness. it’s been so long since i’ve read either than i can barely remember what happens😂

the sfs has ended, thank you everyone who joined! i’ll be returning them over the next few days❤️

“books are easily destroyed. but words will live on as long as people can remember them.”—tahereh mafi, unravel me

qotd: what were the books that got you in to reading?

aotd: from what i remember, the ones that really got me into reading was books i read when i was younger. these include warriors, percy jackson, pendragon, rainbow magic fairies, and twilight!

i’m still reading nevernight (but i’m about half way through now)! i’ve been busy with travelling, seeing family, and having my first day at a new job. i’ll have more time to read during the week and i’m also hoping to do some plotting and writing. and maybe editing. do you guys have any plans for the week?

“a room without books is like a body without a soul.”—marcus tullius cicero

qotd: how do you store your books? boxes, on the floor, shelves, beside your bed?

aotd: mine are everywhere😂 they’re piled on the shelves, the floor, my desk, counter, beside by bed, and on the tv stand. i really need to buy some more shelves! anyone else?

i started reading nevernight the other day! originally i started it a few months ago, but then got too busy with exams to read and forgot about it. but i’m excited to finish it! i just got to book 2 in it. have you read it? what did you think?

“for some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. what a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. they show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.”—anne lamott, bird by bird

qotd: what was the last non-fiction book you read? •
aotd: i just finished anne lamott’s bird by bird and it was amazing! i usually never read non-fiction (i love all the fantasy stuff) but i’ve really been enjoying reading about writing.

last night i started reading writing down the bones, and i’m hoping to start reading some rick riordan soon!! if you’ve read his books, which is your favourite?

have a lovely day❤️

“books are more real when you read them outside.”—maggie stiefvater, shiver

qotd: what series would you love to reread?

aotd: i’d really love to reread the raven cycle! i remember loving all of the characters so much when i read it the first time, and i really like maggie stiefvater’s writing.

i’ve been travelling around a lot, and also writing a lot so i haven’t had too much time for anything else. so far, my reading this month has been very, very slow. i’m hoping to read more in december! right now i’m reading bird by bird. has anyone read it? what did you think?

have a good day❤️

“still, the image haunted his dreams throughout the night: a lovely girl gazing at the stars, and the stars who gazed back.”—sarah j. maas, throne of glass

qotd: what do you think of collector’s editions? do you want any/have any?

aotd: i love collector’s editions! i don’t have any but i’d love to get the ones for throne of glass, six of crows, and a gathering of shadows (once it comes out).

i finished reading stephen king’s on writing book, and i really loved it. it was super interesting to read about his life and his thoughts on writing. has anyone else read it? do you have a favourite stephen king book? i’ve only read the one but i’d love to read more.

have a wonderful day. { #bookstagram #bookstagrammer

“too many books. too few centuries.”—jay kristoff, nevernight

qotd: what a book you haven’t read that you think you’ll love?

aotd: nevernight is mine! i’ve had the book for quite some time now, and i’m hoping to pick it up soon. have you read it? what did you think? (how pretty is that uk cover though?? i was lucky to find it at a used bookstore since i live in canada!)

the past few days, i’ve pretty much done nothing but write. and it truly feels so good to write. i love the characters and the world and i’m excited to finish it. it’ll be my first time writing a novel. i never thought i’d be able to do it, but here i am, and i’m almost there now.

i’m currently doing a reread of acomaf (very slowly mind you) and i also started reading stephen king’s on writing, a memoir of the craft. i’m hoping to do some light reading after before finally reading some of the books that have been sitting on my shelf forever!

have a wonderful day❤️

“without his books, his room felt like a body with its hearts cut out.”—laini taylor, strange the dreamer

qotd: what was the last book you bought?

aotd: i actually needed up buying 4 books yesterday!! i went to indigo’s twice as well as some used bookstores. i needed up buying the dark vault, love and gelato, the sword of summer, and on writing. have you read any? what did you think?

nanowrimo has been going great! i’ve been consistently writing about 5k each day, but i’m hoping to slow down for the next little while. it’s been amazing meeting and connecting with so many new people and just being able to write! i’m hoping to be posting every so often and catch up on everyone’s feeds❤️

have a wonderful day!
