5 🌟 I never really knew Achilles’ real story. My whole reference was the movie “Troy” and this book showed me that the movie was only half the story and that it was tweaked into a more generally-accepted form. This made me sad because the true side is so much more interesting! • Patroclus made me remember what true love is - unconditional, selfless, timeless. Achilles showed me how to be brave in times that matter most - that standing up for who you truly are is the best and worst battle of your life. Be vigilant! 💪 • This is a very honest and beautiful interpretation of a classic myth. I’ve always thought of Achilles (apart from Hercules) as the embodiment of strength and dominance in the battlefield ... now I know that he faced a more formidable foe than the Trojan army... himself. He and Patroclus are now tucked safely in this bookworm’s heart. 💜 • Got this gorgeous Nerissa booksleeve from @bookshields illustrated by @astrojimbo.art ❤️ . . . . . . #2020readingchallenge #mythology #mythologyreads #fantasyreads #yafantasy #youngadultbooks #yalit #yareads #bibliophile #goodreads #goodreadschallenge2020 #bookpile #bookish #bookworm #beatthealgorithm #igreads #bookstagram #bookfamilia #titasofbgph #bookgram #bookishlife #classicreads #greekmythology #thesongofachilles #bookreview #bookreviews #madelinemiller

Melissa Caruso created a magical world that’s not even remotely complicated, which is something to be said. I instantly felt connected with every character. They’re so well written and human. From the beginning, the story draws you in with Ryx and her cursed magic. It was such a pleasure reading how the plot played out.⁣ Another great thing is the character diversity. There ere so many different types of characters and it all meshed so well that it felt seamless. Caruso did an amazing job with her character building. I don’t think I’ve read another book yet that has done this so well.⁣ ⁣ I can’t wait to snatch up the second book! #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksbooksbooks #theobsidiantower #melissacaruso #yafantasy #pmbookstababes #bookreview #bookreviews #bookreviewer #booksandcaffiene #netgalley #advancedreaderscopy

Q: What books did you get this month? 📖 Hey, book lovers! My book hauls are getting really difficult to fit into pictures 😂 I finally bought the rest of the Grishaverse books, so I can hopefully binge all of those soon! My amazing friend Alicen (@thecozyshelf) sent me more books this month (the Shatter Me books) so a big THANK YOU goes out to her 💜💜 📖 Of course I forgot a few books in this picture 🙈 The Betrothed is missing and there are also 3 copies of Bone Crier’s Moon that should be here: the OwlCrate, FairyLoot, and LitJoy editions, which are all beautiful 😍 I don’t think I’ll be keeping the LitJoy edition just because I really don’t need or want 4 copies of that book (I have the original with pre-order goodies too) so one of these days, I’ll need to sell it 😅 . . . #PressedpostMay20 - #BookHaul #BookishFlowersMay20 - Lily // 🌈 #StackSaturday (not exactly a rainbow but most of the colors are here 😂) #FandomBookishMay20 - Book Haul #AlltheBooksMay20 - May Book Haul #SixofCrows #Grishaverse #ShadowandBone #StalkingJacktheRipper #ShatterMe #Legendseries #TheBetrothed #bookstagram #bookshelves #bookphoto #booksbooksbooks #bookworm #booknerd #booknerdigans #yafantasy #yabooks #yabookstagram #bookstack #amreading

Which fictional world would you want to live in? As much as I love some of the books in this pic, I doubt I would survive in any of their worlds. If I had to pick one, it would probably be Crescent City. It seems like it'd be a nice place to live when it's not in chaos 🤷‍♀️ Or the Night Court 🌌 ******** I was watching the Epic YA panel at BookConline today and @victoriaaveyard brought up something interesting. She basically said that people so easily cheer on the heroes/heroines that lead revolutions in these dystopian novels, but speak out against such actions when similar things are actually happening in the real world. That is the unfortunate truth about our society 😕 I'm really glad to see our community here supporting the movement though. I've been seeing it all play out on Twitter since it began earlier this week. I had initially wanted to keep politics off my Instagram completely, but I felt like staying silent would do more harm than good. I have a small platform and I would like to use it. There are so many ways that we can help during this time. There are petitions that need signing and bail funds that you can contribute to. Anything is better than nothing. ** ** #letsgetlitbabes - Tactical #bookstababesmay20 - Sassy Babes * * * * * * * * #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #bookaholic #bookworn #flaylay #yalit #yafantasy #scifi #redrising #sarahjmaas #acotar #tod #throneofglass #crescentcity #illuminae #piercebrown #amiekaufman #jaykristoff #nevernight #stabstabstab

Not many people realize what a feat it is to complete a novel. To write an entire book. Good or bad, big or small, this is a huge accomplishment! If you've done this or are on your way there, just know how proud you should be. It doesn't matter how long it takes you, keep following your dream. I am rooting for you 😊 Have you completed your novel as yet? Where are you in this process?

Who’s your favorite fae prince? 🧝‍♂️✨ So I’m about halfway through An Enchantment of Ravens and I gotta say I really like Rook! 😍🤣😂 His little insecurities are so endearing! And his shape shifting is pretty awesome! 😆 I did have a few moments when I wondered why he doesn’t just turn into a giant bird. 🐦✨ Wouldn’t it have made things so much easier? 🧐😗 Those of you who’ve read the book probably know what I am talking about! 😂🤣 . “He was astonishingly vain even by fair folk standards, which was like saying a pond is unusually wet, or a bear surprisingly hairy.” — Margaret Rogerson, An Enchantment of Ravens . . . #wehunttheflame #danceofthieves #timekeeper #anenchantmentofravens #fantasy #fantasybooks #yafantasy #yafantasybooks #books #bookstagram #bookish #bookworm #bookwormproblems #bookaholic #fantasyreader #fantasyreads

✨What’s your favorite mug that you own?✨ ~ As many of you know (and can probably relate), I’m obsessed with mugs!! But I never actually drink out of them 😂 but I’m so so in love with my Marauder’s Map mug that my brother’s girlfriend bought me for Christmas a few years ago because when you add warm liquid, footprints appear on the side🥺🥺❤️

I attempted some book folding for this weeks #inspiredbybookish but massively failed... I think it's beyond my patience 😂😂 So here's my recreation of @booksbreathemagic gorgeous photo, minus the book folding. I couldn't pass up the chance to use the illustration of 'The Great Magnus Bane' from my City of Bones 10th Anniversary Edition. I don't know about you, but Magnus is one of my favourite characters. He brings such light-hearted humour, yet also is one of the most profound and selfless characters. I just ❤️ him! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bookstagram #readersofinstagram #booklover #bookphotography #bibliophile #bookphoto #readerlife #bookshelf #bookworm #ausyabloggers #bookstagrammer #ilovebooks #readersofig #booksofinstagram #booksofig #books #yafantasy #yafiction #ausbookishfeatures #cityofbones #shadowhunters #magnusbane #themortalinstruments

Lada Dracul has no allies. No throne. All she has is what she’s always had: herself. She storms the countryside with her men, accompanied by her childhood friend Bogdan, terrorizing the land. But brute force isn’t getting Lada what she wants. Mehmed wants control of the city of Constantinople, and Radu has earned an unwanted place as a double-crossing spy behind enemy lines. Torn between loyalties to faith, to the Ottomans, and to Mehmed, he knows he owes Lada nothing but if she dies, he could never forgive himself. Yet, if he fails in Constantinople, will Mehmed ever forgive him? As nations fall around them, the Dracul siblings must decide: what will they sacrifice to fulfil their destinies? Empires will topple, thrones will be won . . . and souls will be lost. . ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 . Book 2 of #TheConquerorsSaga. Mild #Spoilers. . I know I love a tragic love story but, wow, does Radu just have one of the most tortured I’ve read. My heart breaks for him as he becomes aware of his own fate and chooses to follow a love he knows won’t be returned instead of a chance at a happy relationship. . Lada never had any room in her heart for anyone until Mehmed forced his way in but for all the passion between them that love quickly turns to hate. As much as she tries to guard herself against further pain, she begins to realise she could have room for a few others who actually come to her aid when she needs it. But Wallachia is a cruel mistress and no matter who claims to love Lada, she’s still left to make the hard choices on her own. . Both Lada and Radu struggle with the consequences of their own actions and with major philosophical questions: does the end justify the means? And what do you do when good intentions lead to more suffering? They both get what they wanted but neither is happy with how it feels to accomplish their goals. . I’m really looking forward to the climax of this #trilogy in the next instalment! #nowirise #andidarken #historicalfiction #yafantasy #lgbtq #kierstenwhite #ConquerorsSaga #OttomanEmpire #MehmedTheConqueror #RaduTheHandsome #VladTheImpaler #books #Reading #bookstagram #bookreader #calgaryreads #bookphoto #bibliophole #booklover

#Repost @bookishqueen_ • • • • • • Nos encontramos dando cierre a Mayo con M de Mitología y ha sido fantástico poder traerles todo el contenido del mes y ver cómo a tantos les ha gustado. En esta ocasión quiero que ahondemos en la mitología de los mundos de alta fantasía literaria, porque si, en medio del world building de las sagas de fantasía muchos autores crean mitos y leyendas dentro de sus creaciones. No por nada Tolkien creo el lenguaje elfico y durante todo el Simarillion conocemos la creación de la tierra media y sus más importantes leyendas. Autores como Brandon Sanderson han creado todo un panteón de dedidades que afectan su universo literario, en especial en cada uno de los planetas del Cosmere donde se desarrollan los hechos para luego confluir en las fuerzas superiores de control. Lovecraft nos planteaba una mitología mucho más conflictiva, donde los seres supremos eran bestias colosales, que yacían en el cosmos luchando entre ellas y cuyo fin era la destrucción, el dolor. Con casos como los del mítico Cthulhu que yace dormido en lo más profundo de los océanos esperando a ser despertado y traer así nuestra destrucción. Por último, en este libro en específico Michael Sullivan nos deleita con el paso de la época de la mitología y la leyenda a la siguiente etapa y como personas provenientes de distintas culturas y creencias lograran llegar a un común acuerdo entre lo que es el origen del mundo, lo que son y lo que les espera. ¿Cuál es su mundo fantástico favorito? ¿Conocen las mitologías internas de la literatura fantástica? ¿Les gustaría conocer más de ellas? Les cuento además que con este libro, les doy una pista para lo que será la temática del mes de junio. #LaEraDelMito #AgeOfMyth #Fantasy #booknerd #booklover #bookreview #bookclub #bookaddict #yafantasy #yafiction #yafantasybooks #librosymaslibros #librosrecomendados #librosjuveniles #librosgram @michaelsullivanoficial
