If you’re a book blogger, you have most likely heard of the bookish corner of instagram: ‘bookstagram’. It’s a delightful part of the internet filled with pictures of books – what more could you want to surround your bookworm self with?
I started @readerinareverie on Instagram around the same time that I started this blog, and, although my photography skills are in every sense of the word, amateur, I have really enjoyed being part of that bookish community too.
One of my favourite things about bookstagram is looking at the different themes and filters people use to edit their photos. I’ve been using a similar method to edit my photos for a little while, but I’ve recently found an app with my new favourite filter, which is saving me so much time from manually editing my pictures. I’m not normally a fan of standard filters, but I absolutely love this one, and thought I’d share with you how I edit my photos. Continue reading “how i edit my bookstagram photos.”

As such, there are way too many books that I want to read, that reading all of them will be pretty much impossible. So I’ve finally narrowed my list down to the ones that I simply HAVE to read before the Summer is over. The ones that I NEED to put aside time to read!

“This dangerous girl. This captivating beauty.
This destroyer of worlds and creator of wonder.”
One Life to One Dawn.
In a land ruled by a murderous boy-king, each dawn brings heartache to a new family. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, is a monster. Each night he takes a new bride only to have a silk cord wrapped around her throat come morning. When sixteen-year-old Shahrzad’s dearest friend falls victim to Khalid, Shahrzad vows vengeance and volunteers to be his next bride. Shahrzad is determined not only to stay alive, but to end the caliph’s reign of terror once and for all.
Night after night, Shahrzad beguiles Khalid, weaving stories that enchant, ensuring her survival, though she knows each dawn could be her last.

Incredibly, Shahrzad finds herself falling in love. How is this possible? It’s an unforgivable betrayal. Still, Shahrzad has come to understand all is not as it seems in this palace of marble and stone. She resolves to uncover whatever secrets lurk and, despite her love, be ready to take Khalid’s life as retribution for the many lives he’s stolen. Can their love survive this world of stories and secrets?

I recently came across a shelf I made on goodreads a couple of years ago, called: “Books-that-made-my-heart-do-the-jittery-thing”. I only added a few books onto it, but rediscovering that list reminded me of some of the books that made my heart beat a little faster because of the gorgeous romances depicted within them. Here’s some of what I found on the list… Continue reading “Books That Made My Heart Do The Jittery Thing”
