Green books! Do you recognize any of these? / Czytaliście którąś z tych książek? Co prawda nikt mnie nie nominował do pokazania zielonych książek, ale znominowałam się sama 😄 mój ulubiony kolor, więc jak mogłabym przepuścić taką okazję! 🌷 #fantasychezspring - green books #theardentbiblioreads - outside 🌷 #bookpile #bookstack #greenbooks #bookombre #kochamczytac #bookstagramtopasja
Still playing catch-up with #theardentbiblioreads so I’m combining day 17 & 18— a book by a young author and a first book by a well-known author. He may not be quite so young these days but back in 2002 when this book came out, JSF was only 25! I loved this book—it took me awhile to understand his style and the layout of the story but once I caught on I was hooked! • Side note: can I just say that I feel like 2002 was only a few years ago? JSF is only a few years younger than me but when I did the math I kept thinking there was some mistake, like I’ve always been this age and look the same—it’s everything else that’s changing, right?! #everythingisilluminated #bookstagram #booknerd #bibliophile #imnotold
Day 16 of #theardentbiblioreads photo challenge (yes I know I’m a few days behind!) is “Set in Africa.” There are so many wonderful books to choose from in this category, but I went with #thepoisonwoodbible for my favorite in fiction, and #dontletsgotothedogstonight for nonfiction (thats one of my favorite titles too). These are both incredible stories and I just can’t recommend them enough! #bookstagram #booknerd #bibliophile #idratherbereading
#theardentbiblioreads Day 18: famous authors first novel.  I still can't believe that Elantris was Brandon Sanderson's debut novel. It's so, so good! It's not my favourite book by him, but it is such an amazing fantasy story. I can't wait for the next book, but I will have to reread this one. I forgot a lot already. :D  #bookstagram #bookaddict #bookaholic #booknerd #bookworm #bücherliebe #bücherwurm #brandonsanderson #elantris
What’s a book that’s taken you forever to read? 🌹 I FINALLY got around to reading A Court of Thorns and Roses this month. Overall I liked it but was kind of bored with it. Since I know Tamlin isn’t endgame (because really who can avoid that spoiler😂😂) I didn’t care for his and Feyre’s dalliance but I did enjoy the plot so I am looking forward to reading the next book. 🌹 #iamsweetapril #powerful #tamlin #acotar #acourtofthornsandroses #theardentbiblioreads #literarylifestyle #youngauthor #sarahjmaas
I'm hitting that wall of 'there are too many good books to read and I don't know where to start' dilemma. Thankfully, whatever comes in from the library first helps. So I sat down with a hot chai latte and Plath's first novel this morning. What are you reading right now? #theardentbiblioreads
For my famous author's first novel I chose my favorite of his,  Looking for Alaska swept me away the first time I read it and some parts of it still stick with me.  #theardentbiblioreads #famousauthorsfirst #lookingforalaska #johngreen #books #read #favorites #photoaday #photochallenge #day18
I read The Outsiders for the first time last month. This book blew me away, especially that the author was about 16 when she first wrote it. Amazing. I picked it up because my Lit professor shared the backlist of diverse YA that changed the genre forever. No more was it just Sweet Valley High (not that there's anything wrong with that), now we have complicated real life mixed in these pages, with characters of all shapes and sizes. I'll never look at young adult novels the same, but I've also learned to keep looking for the good stuff out there. To write off an entire genre or writing style is a true disservice. I know I've talked a lot about YA lately (one week left of class), but share your most diverse favorites with me! I still can't get enough. #theardentbiblioreads
How do you drink your coffee? ☕️ Lately I’ve been trying to cut back on sugar but I definitely still have to add cream at least. We always have at least one or two specialty creamers in the fridge so I like to mix it up. White Chocolate Macadamia and good old French Vanilla are my favorites! ☕️ As much as I’ve been loving the thriller genre lately I really don’t own many at all!! This needs to change. I am currently reading an ebook novella to catch up in the D. D. Warren series and finally get around to these books. So many books, so little time!! ☕️ Don’t you just love my new mug!! I got it this weekend down on River Street in Savannah while my husband and I were having a date night! 💖💖 ☕️ #iamsweetapril #favoritethriller #ddwarrenseries #quincyandrainie #tessaleoni #lisagardner #albionscottishchallenge #setoutdoor #booksoutside #theardentbiblioreads #literarylifestyle #currentlyreading #ebook #the7thmonth #novella
Book by a young author. I believe Mandi Lynn was around 16 when it was published! I loved this story, and she has such a cool youtube and instagram!  #theardentbiblioreads #youngauthor #mandilynn #essence #love #books #bookstagram #photoaday #photochallenge @mandilynnwrites
Started this today for a buddy read with @shatterlings, @marthaadam_is and @keeperofpages; I love fantasy SO MUCH. So much.  Anyone else reading this right now? • 📖#theardentbiblioreads - 'set in Africa' 📖#duskangelapr18 - #currentlyreading • #currentread #childrenofbloodandbone #tomiadeyemi #buddyread #readalong #booksoutside #booksinthewild

“Poor Congo, barefoot bride of men who took her jewels and promised the Kingdom.” 🌾 Covering day sixteen of #theardentbiblioreads - set in Africa and #bookreadhappyhour - be afraid, be very afraid. I read The Poisonwood Bible in school, and I really enjoyed it. 🌾 Well, I finally found a new apartment today!

#theardentbiblioreads challenge for today was “books set in Africa,” so I naturally grabbed my copy of A Book for Midwives by #susanklein and made possible by the #hesperianfoundation. 📖 This book outlines prenatal, labor, and postpartum care for a developing country #traditionalbirthattendant or #traditionalmidwife. Such matters had never occurred to me until reconnecting with a high school classmate who now works in Tanzania 🇹🇿 to improv maternal health outcomes. Just flipping through this volume is a reminder of how fortunate we are to have access to health technology while simultaneously serving as a testament to the timeless low-tech miracle that is birth. 📖 SWIPE for page detail on a tool sterilization method from the Philippines 🇵🇭 🌿 📖 - - - - #frommylibrary #mylibrary #homelibrary #readreadread #readallthebooks #momswhoread #bookschangelives #wherethereisnodoctor #bookstagram
Who else has read this? I am completely captivated by Alexandra Fuller’s memoir of her African childhood. I’m halfway through it right now and I’m planning to stay up tonight until I finish it. I just find it super fascinating. #dontletsgotothedogstonight #alexandrafuller
"This Blinding Absence of Light" by Tahar Ben Jelloun is based on a true story. It is about people who took part in a failed coup attempt and were arrested in Morocco. They had to stay in a secret prison in the moroccan desert for many years. This book is horrible to read. Even more so because it's based on a true story. The prisoners didn't have light and stayed in very poor conditions. This is an impressive book and it's definitely worth the read if you are interested in the topic.  #theardentbiblioreads Day 16: set in Africa.  #bookstagram #bookaddict #bookaholic #booknerd #bookworm #bücherwurm #bücherliebe #thisblindingabsenceoflight
“Okay let's get this over with, no I'm not seasick, yes I've always been green, No I didn't eat grass as a child.” ― Gregory Maguire, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West 💚 Have you seen the Wicked Broadway play? I’ve never seen it but I can probably still sing every song word for word 😂😂 💚 I was obsessed with Wicked for the longest time and now I’m kind of itching to reread it 😃 Not only is my tbr terribly long but my reread list is constantly growing 😆 💚 #iamsweetapril #favoritewitch #wickedwitch #elphaba #theardentbiblioreads #literarylifestyle #springcover #green
I have a phenomenal selection of books to read this month, but it's slow going for me so far. I'm so anxious to dive into this story, but I'm patiently waiting to finish another first. I have a feeling the rest of the nice weather seasons will mean taking my time reading, as I focus on other hobbies.  Do you have any other hobbies you split your reading time with? #theardentbiblioreads
Sun's out for the first time in what feels like years! Probably because the Easter holidays are over 😂 Here's some nice sunny Kipling stories to celebrate! . Is anyone else enjoying a bit of Spring sunshine today? . I know it's not #socksunday but my socks matched my books too well to resist! . . . #theardentbiblioreads #bookstagram #rudyardkipling #thejunglebook #21stories #puffinclassics #foliosociety #luckydipclub
@trythecruller tagged me to join the #diversifivebooks tag to share about great books beyond what’s currently trending. As a big library user, my book collection is small so I’ll share images of the covers in lieu of an actual stack. Here we go! 🇿🇼 Book by an author of a different ethnicity (set in Africa): DON’T LETS GO TO THE DOGS TONIGHT about the author’s Zimbabwean childhood. Memorable. ✈️ Book I loved before joining bookstagram: TRANSATLANTIC, beautiful, well-researched novel connecting Canadian, Irish and African-American history. Highly recommend. 📷 Book excited to read by or about person(s) of color: UNSEEN, a new book of never-published images of black history long buried in the NYTimes archives, and the stories to go with them. I like exploring via old photos and have this book at home now. 🇺🇸 A book you love but have rarely seen on bookstagram: YOU KNOW WHEN THE MEN ARE GONE, stories of women on a military base in Fort Hood, Texas; we need to bear witness to the stories and accounts of veterans and military families (JK Rowling and Nick Petrie are two other writers doing that). Siobhan Fallon is a powerful writer. I’m excited to have her newest novel at home and will start that soon. 🔬Book in a genre I don’t normally read that I ended up loving: I don’t normally spend time with nonfiction accounts of epidemics but I was drawn into and compelled by FEVER SEASON, a vivid account of the 1878 yellow fever epidemic and its impact on the city of Memphis and surrounding communities. Thanks to @thestackspod for starting this.
