So far I'm half way through #Fahrenheit451 & finished one book in one sitting. And started a new audio book. A roughly 9.5 hours. Not great but going for more hours tomorrow. Speaking of more, saw this book sales at news agent and I just have to! All these for AU$18!
Been wanting to read Heroes & the tagged book. Read Lenny's Book of Everything & absolutely love it. This hardback was $25 now $3! Can't wait to read them

Not a big #RomCom book fan but sometimes you need something light to read in between. Finished in 1 sitting! A fun fast read with lots of Jane Austin & #HarryPotter references to satisfy all the book nerd in us. Librarian twin sister hoping to vacation but ended up switching with her beauty queen twin. Loving all the Miss Congeniality & Princess Diary moments. A feel good about yourself &who you are story!

I don‘t like non fiction but have been wanting to read this since its published! Just started this audio last night cause my eyes were too tired to read. It‘s about this extraordinary courageous woman who became the trauma cleaner after she was a husband, father & drag queen & even tho she has gone through a lot in her life, she‘s living a positive life and helping others in many way.

So for the #MayMadness #24b4Monday readathon of #BannedBooks I've decided to read Fahrenheit 451 for the first time & reread #AnimalFarm by #GeorgeOrwell
And marking off my list from #MayScacengerHunt

Week 4 of #MayMadness #BannedBooks
TBH I was shocked how many books were banned books including #AlicesAdventureinWonderland?! & Lord of the Ring? Here are a small stack of banned books I could find right away😆 I have read most of them here except #Fahrenheit451 & The Communist Manifesto which belongs to my daughter. Other banned books not pictured here are LOTR, To Kill a Mocking Bird & my favorite : Of Mice & Man.
Which one are you reading?

BooknerdsLife I remember loving Catcher in The Rye a lot when I was in high school and probably the only book in this stack that I‘ve reread. But I also love Brave New World, Of Mice and Man & Animal Farm ... & of course Alice‘s Adventure in Wonderland will always be my absolute favorite! ❤️ 2d
Clwojick I love how many people love Of Mice and Men! It‘s always been a favourite of mine, but i remember being the only one to enjoy it in school when we had to read it. Glad to see you guys loved it too! 2d
See All 7 Comments
BooknerdsLife @Clwojick Oh really? I read it in high school too but most of us liked it too, I guess we are just an odd bunch 😂 But Brave New World on the hand, not too people liked it while I enjoyed it very much too 😆 2d
BooknerdsLife @Clwojick Of Mice and Men is such a special story & John Steinbeck ‘s writing is both compelling & beautiful, I can‘t think of a reason not liking it 😅 2d
TheReadingMermaid I'm actually going to read a little bit from The Scary Stories Treasury by Alvin Schwartz. I just found out recently that this is another one of the banned books and that really hits home for me 💔😢 2d
BooknerdsLife @TheReadingMermaid Awww great choice!! 👍🏼 IKR! So many great books were banned but lucky we all get to read them now! 🙌🏼📚💖 Happy Reading! 23h

Finished this Japanese book with Chinese translation the other night and really love it. Just wish that someone would translate it into English as well. About a boy who inherited an old bookstore from his grandpa who passed away suddenly. A cat showed up and asked him to rescue books that are trapped. The story shows us what's the true meaning of Books lover and the Power of Books.

It's mid Mayso let's check the list of #MayScavengerHunt by @TheReadingMermaid
Finished this heartwarming one early May. A little weird & slow in the middle but that ending! Oh My Heart! ❤️
- with a dog in it ✅
- With a non human character ✅
- with a character dies ✅ (sorry didnt mean to give out any spoilers but yes 😭)
- by an author from a different country✅

An overall fun read, but in my opinion can do without the fishing part! 3.5/5 🌟

Yay! Finished this 800+ pages whithout breaking my wrist! The last book of this series. Love Cassandra Clare's #Shadowhunters World building and the characters she created. #TDA has most diverse characters than others, but sad to say, I'm a little disappointed with the overall plot & this one is probably the weakest final book compare to her other series. Nonetheless, can't wait to dive into her next one 🙌🏼 4/5 read.

#AMonthOfSongs Day 11 : #LoveMeNow
Daisy Jones, a girl with all the privileges, beauty and talent in music, wants to be heard and recognised for her music. It's also a story about women who know what they want and not afraid to go for it and support each other in the process.
Another book by #TaylorJenkinsReid, (who has become my favorite writer) about strong women and #SelfLove

The one book that comes to my mind right away is this one! My first ever #TaylorJenkinsReid book and I fell in love with it right away! It‘s not just about her 7 husbands but her journey in love and in life. Love her new book #DaisyJonesAndTheSix too, her writing is so incredible it makes you believe the characters in her books actually exist. Highly recommend this! #booknerd #greatbook #review

Going to end my weekend by watching this #Classics. I've always wanted to watch this movie because of the cast & I've finally finished reading this book last year! So can't wait to see how this adaptation is! Have anyone watched this? Do you prefer the book or movie?
I love this book so much but some of the farming parts are bit too long😑🙈 Hope this movie does it justice.

Love the original #StarWars movies, but not a super fan of #SciFi novels until this series. Even tho it‘s supposed to be #YA I‘ve never read anything like it! The unique format (the whole story told in a format of documents, text, emails & reports) & the writing was so brilliant I got hooked right away!Was too nervous to read the 2nd book but heard only good things about it. So can‘t wait to start this journey again!

And the 2nd book finished! 4hours last night and 1 hour 16mins this morning!
This book had me ugly crying during the last few chapters, despite the fact I knew what is coming and still! 😭 As long as you have a heart, you don't need to be a dog lover or pet owner to feel the love and lose in this story. A little odd at times, or when his dog seems to be able to talk but otherwise a heartwarming tale!

MelissaSue81 Don‘t feel terrible! I feel like the books that I own are the ones that I will get to “sometime” as I‘m always trying to keep up with my library pile or netgalley or something.. but this book was one of my favorites of 2018.

A belated #WorldBookDay ? But everyday can be a world book day right?
Do you have a favourite genre?
I don‘t think I have a favorite as you can see from my #TBR here. I love Fantasy, YA Fantasy, Historic fiction, Classics etc but I do have least favourites which are #Romance & #NonFiction 😁
BTW I‘ve read Jane Eyre & Anna Karenina already & love them both!

The Wicked King | Holly Black
post image

Also finished this 2nd book in the series last week and I fully enjoyed it! An easy fast pace fantasy about human girl growing up in the faire world and how to outsmart all of them. A wicked tale full of manipulation and war strategy with an unique romance even for someone who is not big on romance novel like me.
5⭐️ read for me & can't wait for next book!

What a #Dark #Vicious #SciFi story about two close friends who discovered the mystery about becoming an ExtraOrdinary Human with super power and in doing so, become each other's biggest enemy. Finished it during my Easter holiday & #VESchwab has definitely become one of my favorite fantasy/sci-fi authors with her unique stories & fantastic writing. Now I need something to lighten my mood
4.5⭐️read!

P.S. found more pink books after this shot, so might post more later 😆🙌💗📚

How often do you visit your library?
I go at least once a week & here's some of my recent #library #bookshaul. I've finished #LifeOnTheLeash & the tagged book is my #CurrentRead. Ive read #ToKillAMockingbird in highschool but can't waitt to read this Graphic Novel edition too😄
The #Fantasy & #BooksToMovies bookmarks here are given out by my library for free, the back of it with lists of books to that particular genre (my favorites too)
#booknerd

JennyM I‘m the same...at least once a week. Library day is always a good day 📚 2mo
BooknerdsLife @JennyM IKR!😄 Library day is the Best! No matter how bad the day or week has been, library & free books just cheer us up right away 🙌📚💗💗 Can't imagine life without it! 2mo
BooknerdsLife I've seen some good reviews on this one, maybe I should read it next too 🤗 2mo
MelissaSue81 I try to go once a week to return things and pick up holds. I‘m a bit behind on my library stack though so I don‘t know if I will make it there this week. I LOVED The Last Time I Lied, and the To Kill a Mockingbird graphic novel is great for a reread of the book. 2mo
BooknerdsLife @MelissaSue81 so sorry for the late reply💛 Haha it's so easy to get behind on our library books haul isn't it? 😅🙈 Simply too many great books and too little time😂 I try to go anyway... even just to say hello to those new books on the shelf 🤣 Its my happy place. Aww I did see quite a few good reviews about The Last Time I Lied too! Definitely going to bump it up on my TBR list 😊👌 2mo

Day 1 of #SpringIntoReading : #FooledYou
Don't be fooled by the genre of this book or its size. It's actually very readable despite the fact that it's a Classics ...and very enjoyable with lots of characters, some you love & adore (& they might NOT be the one on the title😬) and some you hate 😩

I don't like to set a list since I'm a true mood reader, got a few books from library as well as some been waiting on the shelf, hopefully can get through as many as I can🙈Please remember that reading should be fun ¬ part of a chaos or competition, so quantity is not important😉 #HappyReading 📚💗

My other #CurrentRead
Love her last book Seven Husband's of Evelyn Hugo so much I was nervous about starting this one, but so far I'm really enjoying the style (in which the story is told in a firm of interviews) & the 70s Band vibes And I can tell already this story is more than that...Can't wait to get to know #DaisyJones more😊
Anyone else reading this?

It's been a Fun Ride! This photo was taken in Hong Kong earlier this year, somehow I think it suits the Apocalyptic theme of the book😂 (Don't ask me why) An humorous take on the End of the World, while Angel ( played by Michael Sheen) & Devil (David Tennant) working to gather to save the universe. Most parts had me giggling silly, but some part was a little drag with too many characters,but Definitely a fun, entertaining read 4.5⭐️
