Night Circus | Erin Morgenstern

My first #fantasy / #magical book in a while. I'm enjoying how character driven this is and how seemingly real and beautiful many of the descriptions are. Hopefully I get the time to dive in more. Love the pretty #elegant cover too! #nofilter #circus #night

I just started this and I'm super excited. I hear it's mesmerizing, satirical, and dramatic. I hope it proves up to my expectations! The movie stars Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth so I can't wait to see that too!!!! #satire #drama #movie #dress

I never read books by the same author really close to each other but I love her and I want to keep reading her books. I don't read a lot of murder mystery but I'm really enjoying it. It keeps me thinking... #murder #mystery #train #red #blood

The Child | Fiona Barton

I got this with the Book of the Month Club. I couldn't put it down the last half. It was very dark and it really got to me. It was a great book, but very sad and gripping. I liked how the author was incorporating a lot of other things into this besides the plot. It brought to light the struggles of becoming and being a middle aged woman and what loss can do.

This was great! Another amazing, engaging story by Miss Christie, Queen of Mystery. I can't wait to read more of Hercule Poirot. But And Then There Were None is still my favorite of hers.

Oh my word this book was amazing! I highly recommend it. It was #dark and #chilling and absolutely absorbing. I did not expect some of the curve balls that were thrown. 10 out of 10 👏🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 #thrills #murder #rebecca #british

I just started Rebecca and the first few pages have been great! I love starting books in the morning with #coffee and a bagel. #mornings I also love the #used copy I have. #oldbooks #booksmell

kathedron I don't know how many times I've read "Rebecca". I'm planning to read it again soon, but from writer-mind this time. (My copy is an old secondhand one too.) 2y
austenitesunite Well enjoy it this time too! I can't believe I haven't read it yet. It's definitely my type 2y

Anne of the Island | Lucy M. Montgomery
Pickpick

This is my favorite in the series so far! Anne and Gilbert's #romance is the best and the last two chapters were just so romantic and sweet and #heart warming. Gilbert, aside from Jane Austen's men, is the best literary dream #gentleman. I can't wait to fly through the rest of this #timeless series

sprainedbrain I agree whole-heartedly... Gilbert is second only to Austen's men! ❤️ 2y

I absolutely loved the "medicinal" book recommendations in the back of this book and I thought the recipes were awesome too. Especially that lavender ice cream one! #icecream Those two things made me like the book a lot more. I have mixed feelings about this book and it was not what I was expecting. I definitely disagree with some of the things in it; I felt like it said that adultery is okay and I really think it's not!

I'm looking at the ocean, sitting on the rocks while reading about the book's main character, Jean Perdu, and his friends' journey on the waters of France, namely the Seine. I'm sure it's a little different than this Eastern Caribbean scene! I love the emotional characters in this book. #nofilter #rocks #mountains #ocean #France #seine #boat #river

Reading in paradise! This book is transporting me to France while I'm in the Caribbean 😅. This book is so wonderful though and it has a lot of great reflections on love and life. I love her writing style as well and I can't wait to finish it. #summerreads #paris #love #mountains

Another timeless quote from Jane Austen! One must leave their inner circle to discover new things... Northanger Abbey is an amazing work and Catherine such a captivating heroine.

I just got this wonderful barely used copy of Anna Karenina at my favorite local bookstore. ❤️I love a nice big book and I can't wait to unlock its story... will definitely watch the movie too with Kiera Knightley after I read it!
