My review of “Unwilling Key” by Sarah Beth Moore!

Happy book Birthday to Unwilling Key by @newleafwriter !🎉 . . . *I was given an ARC of this book by the Author in exchange for a review. However, all my thoughts and opinions are my own.* . . . “Unwilling Key” the sequel to “Broken Moon” is a strong sequel that further showcases the mysterious yet magical world that Sarah Beth Moore has created. Naiya and her crew think they’ve found sanctuary, but things change, and Naiya discovers she could be in more danger than ever before. Struggling to outrun and outsmart the evil Dr. Black and many others that wish to find the key to Terminus. Naiya must race to find it first, while trying to keep her remaining family safe, as well as get a hold of how to control her magic abilities and understand what it really means to be a Legerdemain. There are new characters, plot twists, deaths, politics, and growing romance. Sarah Beth Moore has proven that she can perfectly blend Dystopian and Fantasy to create a world that has level upon level of secrets to uncover. Fans of the Dystopian genre, as well as Avatar: The Last Air Bender, will enjoy this combo, and fast paced action! I enjoyed this book, but long to understand the mythology better. I’m interested to see what more we learn in the next book. My rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5. . . Thanks @newleafwriter for kindly sending me a copy! 💙🙏🏼. . . . #readallthebooks #bookstagram #bibliophile #unwillingkey #brokenmoon #reader #bookworm #booklover #bookreview #makegoodart #sarahbethmoore #books #follow #magic #ereader #author #bookish #goodreads #bookphotography #maine #ebook #fantasy #releaseday

Book review Monday…

Finished this yesterday! Many people have been waiting to hear my thoughts on this book, so here we go. My rating is: ⭐️⭐️⭐️. 3/5. For my full thoughts, check out my Goodreads review. @ Angela Magic Art . . . The short version of the review is this; Good concept, stunning cover, cute, but not at the level I wanted. Romance didn't have quite enough spark for my taste. And some weirdly written character traits and personalities. It was not a bad book! It just isn't the best contemporary I've ever read. But I would say give it a try anyway. Make your own decision. You may love it. . . . What's your favorite contemporary book? Mine is Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. . . . #emergencycontact #maryhkchoi #books #contemporary #cute #romance #readers #bookworm #booklover #bookphotography #bookcover #lovereading #bookstagram #makegoodart #maine #startwithwhy #photography #follow #bookreview #worldbookday

BOOOOOKSSSSS….

Spiderwick Chronicles Appreciation, Fairy Lights, & Terrariums!

I adore the Spiderwick Chronicles! Here's why: They are so magical, and the atmosphere is just like what my backyard looks like because even though it's not stated, the books are supposed to take place in Maine. I would go out in the woods behind my house and look for fairies and make fairy houses, and play with my friends and cousin's fighting the pretend goblins with our stick swords. These books make me reminiscent of my childhood, and it's the best feeling. It was so fun to meet Holly Black back in February! While she signed my entire Spiderwick collection, she asked me if I had ever had any fairy experiences, and I told her yes! And that thanks to her I spent so many hours searching for a stone with a hole in it so I could see the fairies too. She loved that. . . I really want to meet Tony DiTerlizzi and have him sign my books too so they will be complete! . . The Spiderwick movie is wonderful as well! I want to watch it again soon! . . What book or series makes you reminisce about your childhood? . . . #hollyblack #thespiderwickchronicles #tonyditerlizzi #fantasy #books #childhood #magic #faries #faeries #terrarium #goblins #spiderwick #bibliophile #bookstagram #artist #seeingstone #fiction #nostalgia #read #readers #readersofinstagram #follow #underrated #maine #bookphotography

"you do not just wake up and become the butterfly" ~ growth is a process – rupi kaur . . Hello everyone! I hope you are having a calm, peaceful morning/day so far. . . Lately I've been in the mood for some poetry. Anyone have any suggestions for poetry books that are a similar style as rupi kaur? . I never connected with traditional poetry, but when I first read rupi kaur, I was so inthralled, and inspired! . . I really want to work more on my own personal writing and poetry. . .

Late post, and Love Stories…

“A story was a form of telepathy. By means of inking symbols onto a page, she was able to send thoughts and feelings from her mind to her reader's. It was a magical process, so commonplace that no one stopped to wonder at it.” ― Ian McEwan, Atonement . . “I've never had a moment's doubt. I love you. I believe in you completely. You are my dearest one. My reason for life. Cee” ― Ian McEwan, Atonement . . I picked this up for $2 this weekend and I can't wait to read it! The movie is one of my favorites ever! I love Keira Knightley and James Mcavoy. I've been a fan of James Mcavoy since the first Narnia movie 🙃. . I am a hopeless romantic, and a sucker for a tragic love story. What's your favorite love story? 💕 . . . Reminder: I will be going live here on insta at 3PM EST tomorrow Tuesday April 10th. I will be giving myself a henna tattoo. So if you'd like to see how it's done, tune in! Hope to see you there! . #atonement #atonementmovie #ianmcewan #books #bookstagram #bibliophile #bookish #writer #author #reading #reader #typewriter #typewriterpoetry #magic #makegoodart #jamesmcavoy #keiraknightley #saoirseronan #lovestory #movie #follow #art #bookphotography #bookcommunity #bookfriends
