💙 ANOTHER GIVEAWAY! 💙
It’s a day for giveaways and new books! I’ve partnered with @harlequinteen and @tlcbooktours to tell you all about IMAGINE US GONE by Jennifer Yu, a new YA Contemporary with a focus on depression. This one is definitely on my TBR for next month.
IMAGINE US GONE will hit shelves tomorrow but you also have a chance to win a copy! Keep reading for details. 💙
SYNOPSIS: Stella lives with depression, and her goals for junior year are pretty much limited to surviving her classes, staying out of her parents’ constant fights and staving off unwanted feelings enough to hang out with her friends Lin and Katie.
Until Kevin. A quiet, wry senior who understands Stella and the lows she’s going through like no one else. With him, she feels less lonely, listened to—and hopeful for the first time since ever…
But to keep that feeling, Stella lets her grades go and her friendships slide. And soon she sees just how deep Kevin’s own scars go. Now little arguments are shattering. Major fights are catastrophic. And trying to hold it all together is exhausting Stella past the breaking point. With her life spinning out of control, she’s got to figure out what she truly needs, what’s worth saving—and what to let go. 💙

We're in love with this cover!
Inspired by the classic novel Rebecca, THE WINTERS is a riveting story about what happens when a family’s ghosts resurface and threaten to upend everything.
See this pile? These are the books I picked out for my October TBR. I’ve read 4 of them so far, but I think it’s time to get back on track 😂 I’m just SO BAD at sticking to TBRs 🤦🏻♀️ I’m a mood reader through and through, I suppose 😂
Are you a TBR ditcher too? Or are you somehow a magical creature who is able to stick to it perfectly? 😂

Stattdessen legt er seine Hände an ihre Hüften und genießt das Beben ihres Körpers, als er sie berührt.

Nahezu unmerklich schiebt er sein Becken vor und presst sich an ihren Po. Der Laut, der ihr entkommt, als sie seine Härte spürt, ist eine Mischung aus Schnurren und Stöhnen. Die Anspannung fällt von ihm ab und beschert ihm eine Vision: In fünf Minuten ziehe ich sie von dem Hocker hinter mir her, in zehn liegt sie vor mir auf dem Bett in der Hotelsuite.

En voici un morceau : « J’ai fait toutes les erreurs que vous pourriez faire. Quand j’ai démarré, j’étais très jeune et inexpérimenté. J’ai commis des erreurs techniques et des erreurs de business. J’ai embauché les mauvaises personnes. J’ai fais confiance aux mauvaises personnes. J’ai probablement lancé plus de produits qui ont échoué que la plupart des gens dans leur vie. »

What was the last mystery that you’ve read that you were completely stumped until the end? Lisa Unger’s Under My Skin reminds me of a contemporary spin on Alice Feeney’s Sometimes I Lie, and both completely stumped me until the end. Have you ever had a dream that you felt was reality? Synopsis below. 👇🏻
What if the nightmares are actually memories?
It’s been a year since Poppy’s husband, Jack, was brutally murdered during his morning run through Manhattan’s Riverside Park. In the immediate aftermath, Poppy spiraled into an oblivion of grief, disappearing for several days only to turn up ragged and confused wearing a tight red dress she didn’t recognize. What happened to Poppy during those lost days? And more importantly, what happened to Jack?
The case was never solved, and Poppy has finally begun to move on. But those lost days have never stopped haunting her. Poppy starts having nightmares and blackouts—there are periods of time she can’t remember, and she’s unable to tell the difference between what is real and what she’s imagining. When she begins to sense that someone is following her, Poppy is plunged into a game of cat and mouse, determined to unravel the mystery around her husband’s death. But can she handle the truth about what really happened?

Next to me. In front of me. Behind me. Below me.
It mocks me.
I don’t know who I am. Where I am. How long I’ve been here.
It’s felt like an eternity.
For all the unknowns, one truth has grown stronger with the torturous passing of time... I wish I was dead.
Or, at least, I did until I heard her.
She gives me hope. A purpose.
I follow her, soaking in everything she does and growing more dependent. Never in my long life have I seen anyone so perfect.
Now I just have to find a way to make her hear me.
And being able to see me would probably help, too…
Warning: Recommended for readers 18+ due to strong adult language, themes, and lovin’ so good, it must be magicks.

Yall- this book🧡🧡🧡 with holiday season, meaning Halloween through Easter, quickly approaching and the start of so many activities! Then throw in being overly tired and navigating family relationships and it can be too much so fast. This book is a MUST READ. @beckykiser writes like a coffee chat with a trusted friend and there is space to journal and record your thoughts, intentions and memories. I love how she encourages you to think ahead a holiday and really be intentional with what's important to you and your family. She covers not just ideas for making meaningful memories but handling yourself and expectations. It's just so good and her childhood Halloween story is worth the whole book because it truly illustrates how we can be LIGHT to those around us during this fall season. Check it out. I know you will love it! #littlepumpkinlights@sacredholidays#lesschaos#morejesus#godsbigworld#jesuslovesthelittlechildren#bealight#countdowntohalloween#booksformoms#mustread

💚💚Happiest of launch days to Sarah McCoy & her beautiful new MARILLA OF GREEN GABLES! 💚💚Are you an Anne fan? Then you will most definitely want to pick up this stunning new Avonlea story. I had the pleasure of reading a pre-pub copy and offering this review: "Sarah McCoy has given readers a precious gift: the opportunity to step back into the world of Avonlea, and the chance to get to know Marilla Cuthbert as a leading lady in her own right. In McCoy's skillful and sensitive hands, Marilla emerges as a heroine of depth, complexity, and heart. I savored my time with this cast of old friends, enjoying the dilemma of whether to speed through these compelling pages or to pause and relish everything about the lovely world imagined within them."
And, the good news doesn't stop there: @sarahmmccoy SarahMcCoy is coming to NYC! And I'll be joining her in conversation! Come see us at @bookculturecolumbus this Monday evening at 8pm! Personalized book copies, a chance to hear from this fabulous author, and plenty of other October bookish fun...we hope to see you! #MarillaofGreenGables#bookstagram#publishing#mustread#october#nyc#booktalk#bookreview#authorsofinstagram#writersofinstagram

Pick it up today on Amazon:
Add to #TBR:
And don't forget to keep up with Cassidy at her official page: www.cassidystorm.com 👄 SYNOPSIS:
You awaken to complete darkness.
You’re blindfolded, gagged, tied to a chair, arms bound tightly behind you. Completely naked – and completely helpless. You have no idea how you got here. Or where “here” is.
This is just a dream, you decide.
Unable to see, you listen instead. What you hear around you is both intriguing and frightening. Other women being punished – and pleasured.
All too soon, your own ordeal begins as three women take turns subjecting you to excruciating torment – and orgasmic bliss.
It must be a dream.
Or is it?
Last night @whitbaca & I were sitting on the beach watching the sunset 🌅 The tide started to get higher & the waves came closer & closer to our towels. 🌊 Because the sunset was so beautiful we didn’t want to move... so we built a wall protecting us from the waves. As the water continued to roll in, something hit me... Let me tell it to you, the best I can. -
The wall Whitney & I built is like our time on earth, as humans. As humans, We can dream big & work hard to build up our lives. Our perfect relationships, our materialistic possessions, our degrees, status, bank accounts, wardrobes, resumes, and even our followings. We can strive to build our visions, just like we built this wall. Our relationships, materialistic possessions, status, bank accounts, drugs, alcohol, following, and even our appearance may give us temporary protection from facing ourselves (within) & the TRUTH. However, in the end all these things will come crashing down in the face of death. 💀 Just like this sand wall came crashing to an end due to the natural forces of the universe, our lives will do the same, one day. When this day comes we will no longer be protected by the things we built in this lifetime. We will be confronted with the truth & most likely will ask ourselves: “Did I LIVE, Did I LOVE, Did I MATTER?” @brendonburchard 🌴I’d like you to ask yourself this question today. And if the answer is no, I encourage you to take the next step in redirecting the course of your life, because, when your wall comes crashing down, I want your answers to be YES & YES & YES! 🙏🏽 Let me know if there’s a way I can help. 🌅

“We want people to look at the library as a community of learning, and our staff is always finding creative ways to outreach with the public.” – Andrew Chanse, Executive Director of Spokane Public Library 📚
When I walk into a library, whether it be my home library or a library outside of my normal haunting, I am overwhelmed with pride and joy. To me, libraries are about so much more than just checking out books and other materials, it’s about empowering communities. It’s a resource for those who seek answers to the questions they have about life, it’s a meeting place for friends and teachers and students to learn and grow, and, most importantly, it’s opens doors to opportunities for so many individuals, including myself, who are ready and willing to take steps toward their greater purpose, whatever that may be.
What does your library mean to you? What is something you feel libraries gift to communities?
I am honored to be partnering with @kirkus_reviews to bring awareness to the need for #poweringlibraries and #empoweringcommunities and some of the librarians who are on the front lines of changing the world, one book at a time. One of those librarians is Andrew Chanse. Swipe right to see a photo of Andrew and visit the link in my stories for more information about how Andrew is empowering the Spokane community. @baker_and_taylor *This post was made possible through a paid partnership with @kirkus_reviews*
Arise , awake is the story of 10 young entrepreneurs who started a business while studying in college, or right after graduation.
Rashmi classifies student entrepreneurs into three types: rankers (toppers), repeaters (who failed initially but succeeded later) and rebels with a cause (mavericks who did weird but wonderful things). There are lessons learnt from each start up story.
The stories of these entrepreneurs are truely amazing.
A must read.

Thank you so much @abhinav_prakashan_ajmer for sending me a review copy of this amazing book😍😍
Today we continue with the #mystery of Ella “Nell” Cropsey and her accused boyfriend, Jim Wilcox. Following the discovery of Nell’s murdered body and Wilcox’s sensational indictment, he served almost 16 years in prison before being released. After re-entering society, Wilcox found himself abandoned by his former friends and ostracised by the community. Unable to find work, he took to the bottle. Shortly after, Wilcox bought a shotgun and committed suicide, taking the “murder secret” to the grave.
The story of Nell is still very much alive, however, with a small industry of ghost tours flocking to the old homestead frequently. Horror fans and conspiracy theorists still discuss her story to this day, some even travel for hours to witness the site of her death. Why the continued interest? Because the truth will never be known. We’ll never know who killed Nell nor why. Regular sightings of her ghostly figure appearing in windows of the house; lights going on and off of their own accord; one former resident even told of a woman in a white dress standing at the foot of her bed one night (it turned out to be Nell’s old room). All actions of a restless spirit, perhaps, one who haunts the living because her own murder remains unsolved...
This #halloween, delve into this enthralling mystery with Nicholas Nicastro’s acclaimed novelisation of the Nell Cropsey case, “Ella Maud”. Check out the link in our bio for more info.
