Went to the midnight release party for HOFAS- was soo worth it! I went alone but I‘m glad for the experience and the fun, since I‘ve never been to a midnight release even after living through HP and Twilight📖🫶🏼

thegirlwiththelibrarybag A midnight release sounds amazing! Can only imagine the excited energy in the room ☺️ 3w
Cailey_Mac @thegirlwiththelibrarybag it really was! They had trivia, a scavenger hunt, crafts and a raffle, but the best was talking theories in the line to buy the book at midnight; I‘m just glad TOG series wasn‘t spoiled for me as I‘m deep in the tandem read😅🙌🏼 3w

So I did pay full price for Happy Place and Fourth Wing, but everything else has been on my tbr and I‘ve managed to snag them over the past few kindle daily deals!

Cailey_Mac @AkashaVampie yup same here! I actually picked it up a month ago and ALMOST bought it then, but put it back trying to be good. Of course after that all I saw were stellar reviews and I was kicking myself😅 6mo

Forget Me Not | Julie Soto

My mind hasn‘t been too well, but I‘m finally reading a book again after the latest Sager novel- Forget Me Not by Julie Soto. It‘s cute and a little sad so far, but these contemporaries really pull me out of my own head so well 💙🥀

DivineDiana Hoping your reading helps. ❤️ 7mo

Savage Bonds | J Bree

I love my Brutus page overlay! He fits so perfectly in my Arcane Society edition of Savage Bonds😍🖤

ShyBookOwl Page overlay?? I've never heard of that. Interesting 8mo
Cailey_Mac @ShyBookOwl absolutely they are my new obsession! This one is from a shop called tinyhoomanart.com , and I‘ve also gotten a few sets from another shop called the Reading Portal! 8mo
TheBookgeekFrau Ok, sincere question here, but what is the purpose of a page overlay; I mean from your pic it looks like you can't read through it, so what is for? Are they just fun movable illustrations? 8mo
See All 7 Comments
Cailey_Mac @TheBookgeekFrau so they‘re mostly either character art or a scene that‘s depicted in the book; they‘re on a clear sheet that you just put in the book and you can remove it or flip it over to read 🙂 it‘s just like having bookish artwork in your book! 8mo
TheBookgeekFrau @Cailey_Mac Ohhhh, kind of like decor for your book. Cool 8mo
Cailey_Mac @TheBookgeekFrau exactly! Just another thing that I obsess over book wise too😅 8mo
TheBookgeekFrau @Cailey_Mac I couldn't think of anything better to obsess over than books! 😁 8mo

Harpy | David Neth

Went to a local Canal Fest, and picked up this indie book from the author‘s vendor tent today! It‘s a whole series about these two sisters and the shenanigans they get into; he said it has Charmed vibes so I was immediately into it. There‘s also a spin off series following their children after, and it piqued my interest more🙌🏼

Welp, my #20in4 reading was pretty minimal, but I enjoyed what I was reading so that‘s what counts! I ended up splitting my time between Electric Idols and The Carrow Haunt, so I‘m about halfway through the later and so so close to finishing Electric Idol!

Sorry for the weird picture, but I just saw all these horror novels by Darcy Coates; I even picked up The Carrow Haunt! Has anyone here read this author before? There‘s so many books and I‘m intrigued if they‘re really good or not!

RosePressedPages Her book is From Below is one of my favorite books of all time, and I ended up reading it twice in a row. She‘s great! (edited) 9mo

Stopped at B&N to grab Fourth Wing since I see a ton of people raving about it, and found an entire cozy mysteries wall??? Welp I had to grab these 2, and I already have the first book Buried in a Good Book ordered as well since I just realized that On Spine of Death is book 2🫠 BUTTT I think I may have found myself a new genre obsession!

5feet.of.fury @Cailey_Mac I was wrong it‘s 32 🤪 but I binged the 1st 20 pretty quickly about 10 years ago, and then I‘ve been current since then. Totally doable. I‘m just along for the ride at this point. Started the newest today! Haha 11mo

Anddd just like that I have less than 100 pages of the last of the trilogy! Time just kind of flew reading this series; it definitely gets better from the first book, which I liked but didn‘t love, and I think that‘s what kept me from reading this series sooner. I have no clue how everything is going to be wrapped up in so few pages, but I guess we will see!⚔️🐍

Just finished this today, and I really enjoyed it! Although I didn‘t like how part of the “love” story ended up playing out, I think how it all is drawn together (finding your true self, art, family, etc) at the end is really important. I loved Joan, and Analemma is too cute; there needs to be more animals in books!🐾

I‘ve decided to reread the HP series for the first time since… well since the books came out. While I do not support the author and their horrific views, I‘m hoping the story still feels as fun as the first time around. 📖

DebbieGrillo I love the pronouns you used for them. 1y
marleed I want so badly for people to be able to come to the table with opposing life views, and we try to understand differing perspective and respect there exists opposing views. But it is difficult here, because this author posts such mean-spirited cruel comments that it negates my desire to understand them. 1y
Cailey_Mac @marleed I totally get what you mean; unfortunately their standpoint is so incredibly harmful to others that it really merits the negative reaction they deserve 1y
