Weekly Round-Up: I start bookstagram and then get sick...a sign?!


I AM NOW ON BOOKSTAGRAM!! But bear with me because my photo skills have a long way to go... BUT I'M THERE, AND I WENT PROP SHOPPING, AND TA DA IT'S THE BEGINNING OF SOMETHING AMAZING. 
I hope.  

Since Thursday I've had terrible flu, so I've basically been slouching around the house taking bookstagram photos and feeling like I'm dying. 
However.......I FINALLY WATCHED LA LA LAND!!! My review will be up tomorrow, but I don't know how coherent it'll be because #feels. 

Posts of the week: 

Book Review: ICE KISSED
Book Review: THAT NIGHT


I'm not reading anything at the moment, but I did finish The Diabolic. Review will be up on Tuesday. 


This darling arrived this week, and I am so excited to start reading. It looks AMAZING.

  1. Quiet week for me really...some good reading done though which is good considering the weather! Ugh it's too hot to even waste energy thinking never mind doing! I'm spending today trying to get ahead on blog posts so I can have a few days break to recharge the batteries at some point. Have a good week!

  2. OOh nice! I thought Passenger was an interesting read! Hope you will like it too! I'm still learning the ropes of bookstagram myself, but I do know I have a lot of fun with it, even if I am still stuck with horrendous lighting! :P

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I believe that you`ll love the bookstagram community, it`s so friendly and welcoming. You sometimes tend to go overboard with shopping for props, but with time you learn to control the urge:))

  4. Hooray for Bookstagram! I'm very hit or miss with it. I post frequently for a while and then I go weeks or months without using IG at all. Your pics are looking lovely, though - can't wait to see more! I've yet to see La La Land. I kept meaning to see it at the theater but obviously that never happened. :) So sorry you've been sick! Hope you feel better this week!

  5. Can't wait to follow your Bookstagram! I'm sure your photo editing skills will get better over time, Amy. ^.^ I'm currently reading Pride and Prejudice because I caught snippets of the BBC ministries and the film made in the early 2000s which basically screamed, "READ ME!" Can't wait to read your review about La La Land tomorrow!

  6. What did you think of The Diabolic? I loved it, and I read it before it was announced that there would be books to follow. I'm glad about that! But I also loved that The Diabolic was a standalone. ;) I loved Passenger and Wayfarer! I hope you enjoy this one!

    Have a fabulous week, Amy. =)

  8. Welcome to bookstagram. Don't worry, you're not alone, I'm a newbie as well and not really good taking pictures. Enjoy there!

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy the books you're currently reading and planning on reading. Have a wonderful week. :)
