I love this book and have given it often as a gift #theholyman #susantrott #100daysofbooks #100dayproject #gouache There’s a Holy Woman too.
#animaldreams #barbarakingsolver I pretty much love all her books but this cover looked like the most fun to paint. #100daysofbooks #100dayproject #gouache #acrylicink #fiction #nativeamericanstories
This was a fast interesting read & best of all there's a hopeful ending. #trumpocracy @davidfrum #politics #gouache #bookart #100dayproject #100daysofbooks #nonfiction when actually I wish this was all a bad dream
This book was in the drawer of my hotel room and I'm so glad I brought it home cause it's full of wonderful stories Japanese on one side, English on the other. #theteachingofbuddha #100dayproject #100daysofbooks #bookart #bookstagram #gouache #buddhism #bedtimestories

Day 6/100 - BOTM Club members got an early peek at John Green’s novel Turtles All the Way Down (in 2017), and I loved it. He writes so authentically about teenagers and anxiety and romance. This book may not receive all the adulation of The Fault in Our Stars. For one thing, the love story is not a sweeping epic (not a spoiler to say there are no romantic flights to Amsterdam.) But it’s engaging and important, especially if you care about mental health. 5/5 peaches 🍑🍑🍑🍑🍑 * * * Note: No turtles were harmed (or even touched) in the making of this post! #botm #botmlovesturtles #johngreen #turtlesallthewaydown #bookofthemonth #100dayproject2018 #100dayproject #100daysofbooks #amreading #yalit #bookstagram #books 📚 #bookish #beachreading #readingwashergreatlove
In my opinion, @mairakalman is the Queen of #gouache painting. I have ALL of her books and on days when I can’t get it together I open a sketchbook and copy one of her illustrations to learn and get inspiration. This is a magnificent book. And she has a new one out which I have preordered. #artbook #100dayproject #100daysofbooks #the100dayproject #variousilluminationsofacrazyworld #mairakalman #bookart #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #illustration
Day 5/100 - I am so excited that my friend Courtney got me started on this project. I had to take a couple days to find some clarity on my project, but basically I’ve realized that books make me happy, and I need more bookish moments in my daily life. So I’m going to do something literary every day. Today is beach reading my favorite Regency romance writer, #georgetteheyer (and making this post, of course!) Happy Reading! * * * #100daysofbooks #100dayproject #100dayproject2018 #100daysofbookstagram #amreading #bookstagram #book #bookish #romance #beachreads #nofilter
Today I’m starting the #100dayproject . I was struggling to figure out what to do. Since I basically spend all day on creative projects, it felt like too much pressure to take on another creative task every day. Instead, I decided that every day, for the next 100 days, I’m going to take time to appreciate one of the books in my library. I might be inspired to create something, I may post about it, or I will likely just read. I love being surrounded by books, but I’ve realized lately how little time I spend enjoying them. That’s about to change. Here we go, #100daysofbooks !
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is My Big Nose by Sydney Salter | my sister got me this book when I was in 8th grade (I’m pretty sure it was 8th grade) because I’ve always been self conscious about my nose. I read it on the way to a friends cabin so I always smile when I remember how perfect of a gift it was at the time. I also put glasses in the photo because today I got an eye exam and found out I need glasses! | #mybignose #sydneysalter #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading #books
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is The Witches by Roald Dahl | When I was a child, I loved taking Roald Dahl books out from the library. There was specifically one that my school had, it had this same cover art, but it was huge (huge to my 8 year old mind) and it was a collection of a lot of his books. I would always take that book out from the library because this cover art was so eye catching. I always love stories with strong, powerful and dark women (like The Grand High Witch) and I will forever be inspired by them. Plus, have you seen the movie based on this book? Anjelica Huston is a GODDESS and could not be more perfect for the role | #thewitches #roalddahl #anjelicahuston #witches #bookstagram #bookshelf #books #reading #childrensbooks
Next entry of #100daysofbooks is Carry On by @rainbowrowell | Confession, this is the only book of Rainbow Rowells I have ever read! Should I read her other books? The reason I read this book is because the idea of it completely captured me! Gay? Fabulous! Wizardry? Stupendous! Boarding school style magical campus? Sign me up! I really enjoyed this fun read! Reminds me of Harry Potter, but lighter, and gayer (which let’s be honest, Harry Potter definitely needs to be a little gayer) | #carryon #rainbowrowell #magicbooks #gaybooks #lgbtbooks #bookstagram #bookshelf #books #reading
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket | I cant even remember when I first read this series. It feels like I’ve always have read it that’s how early on I read them. In honour of season 2 of The Netflix series premiering next month I decided to post about them today! Such a fun, enjoyable series! I’m quite a bit older than when I first read them and I still enjoy them! #aseriesofunfortunateevents #lemonysnicket #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading #books
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan | This was another favourite read of mine during my high school days. I had a teacher (that was awful) that had the exact opposite taste in books than me, if she loved a book, I hated it, and vice versa. So she of course hated this book, where as I absolutely loved it! A world where majority of people are bisexual, and non conforming gender and sexuality standards are the norm? Sign me up! | #boymeetsboy #davidlevithan #gaybooks #gay #bookstagram #bookshelf #lgbtbooks #lgbt
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is Anne of Green Gables by L.M Montgomery | I took a mini 2 day break from posting. For lack of a better excuse, depression is a bitch. So to help combat that, I thought I would post something that brings me joy and comfort! I’ve been around Anne of Green Gables my entire life, my Grandpa loved the mini series starring @meg_follows , we would watch it all the time together while I was growing up. I’ve read the book quite a few times as well and it never fails to make me smile, cry, laugh and just feel some emotions! #anneofgreengables #lmmontgomery #meganfollows #bookstagram #bookshelf #books #reading
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is FanFiction!! | Not exactly a book, and there’s an infinite amount of authors, bit of a different post today. I was first introduced to FanFiction.net when I was in Grade 5, so that’s many many years ago. From Grades 5 to 12 I was steadily and passionately reading FanFiction all the time. It’s what I did late into the night when I was in High School, instead of going to parties! As much as people talk shit about FanFiction and yes there are some really shitty writers/stories, there are some gems on there! I would not be the reader I am today without this website! Fandoms I was apart of: Grade 5 when I started reading it was Peter Pan, I don’t remember what I used to read in elementary/junior high. Then I moved onto One Tree Hill FanFiction, then High School Musical, until finally Twilight FanFiction. I did have the occasional Harry Potter thrown in there. I even have some stories written on FanFiction, stories that I will never confess to writing! | #fanfiction #authors #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading #books #stories
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is Golden Girls Forever by Jim Colucci | Golden Girls is definitely one of my favourite shows of all time. I could watch every single episode 100 times and still laugh as though I’m watching for the first time. I’m not sure what it is about 4 senior women living together in Miami that appeals to me so much. The sass maybe? But whatever it is, this book does an amazing job at capturing the love and hard work that went into creating a show this fabulous. This photo also features a Dorothy Zbornak book mark that my friend made me. Thank you for being a friend! | #goldengirls #beaarthur #bettywhite #ruemcclanahan #estellegetty #dorothyzbornak #rosenylund #blanchedevereaux #sophiapetrillo #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading #books
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is My Sister’s Keeper by @jodipicoult | I am usually good at separating my emotions from reading books, to real world life emotions. There are some exceptions, this is one of them. Oh my god. When I finished reading My Sister’s Keeper, I was distraught. For weeks afterwards, every time I would think about it, I would cry. It was like I was actually there, living the experience with them. It was that good. Like I said, I’m usually good at separating my emotions, but this book, damn, it really got me. | #mysisterskeeper #jodipicoult #sadbooks #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin | Now we are at the last book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series (for now) and talk more about how impatient of come for, at least, a release date on Winds of Winter! But alas, we all must wait with baited breath. This series really means a lot to me because it really solidified my love for fantasy and “living” in an epic fantasy world while I’m reading these books. It also made me come to realize my love for dragons! Definitely giving this series a re-read in the future. And if you haven’t yet read this series, please don’t let the size intimidate you, it’s a fabulous read! #adancewithdragons #georgerrmartin #asongoficeandfire #jonsnow #daenerystargaryen #tyrionlannister #cerceilannister #fantasybooks #bookstagram #bookshelf #books #reading
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is A Feast For Crows by George R. R. Martin | I’m definitely a sucker for hardcovers. Hardcovers with their original cover art is what I love. Hence why I have all of the A Song of Ice and Fire books in their original hardcovers. I also think my A Game of Thrones book is a first edition. But that’s a hard maybe, I could be mistaken. This series is for sure a proud achievement to get through, the size was intimidating but I’m so happy I got to experience them! #afeastforcrows #georgerrmartin #asongoficeandfire #daenerystargaryen #jonsnow #tyrionlannister #cerseilannister #fantasybooks #bookstagram #bookshelf #books #reading
Todays entry of my #100daysofbooks is A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin | Now that I’m posting more about the Song of Ice and Fire series, the more I’m realizing I seriously need a re-read. But I have to wait! I’ve also come to realize that if you throw a dragon in a book, I’m going to absolutely love it. So Dany having 3 dragons makes me love it even more! | #astormofswords #georgerrmartin #asongoficeandfire #jonsnow #daenerystargaryen #tyrionlannister #cerseilannister #fantasybooks #bookstagram #bookshelf #books #reading
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin | I am really really wanting to give this series a re-read. But I feel it’s a bit premature. Once we get an official release date for Winds of Winter, then I’ll start them over. But I’m getting so impatient! I’ve been reading a lot of gay conversion memoirs lately, I’m in the mood for an amazing epic fantasy! With dragons! Any recommendations to tide me over while I wait? | #aclashofkings #georgerrmartin #clashofkings #asongoficeandfire #gameofthrones #fantasybooks #daenerystargaryen #tyrionlannister #jonsnow #cerseilannister #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading #books #read
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin | I, like many people, heard about the A Song of Ice and Fire series, from all the hype about the show a few years ago. I am someone who HAS to read the book, before I watch the movie that’s based on it, or watch the show that’s based on it, etc. No exception with Game of Thrones. I had to read the books before I watched the show. This was my first try at an epic fantasy so I was a little intimidated. But the story sucks you in! So full of deception, intrigue and dragons. You can’t go wrong with dragons. If you’re a fan of the show and want to read where your favourite characters originated from. Or if you love epic fantasy, and for some reason haven’t read this series. Give it a try! I’m a very slow reader so this series took me a minute to get through. But it was so fun along the way! | #agameofthrones #georgerrmartin #asongoficeandfire #gameofthrones #wine #fantasybooks #nedstark #jonsnow #tyrionlannister #daenerystargaryen #cerseilannister #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading #books
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is Shards of Time by Lynn Flewelling | here is the final instalment of The Nightrunner Series! This was probably one of my favourites in the series as well! It was hard to say goodbye to these amazing characters but alas, it had to happen. I can still hope that Lynn Flewelling will miss these characters so much that she will continue to write more. There is a sister series to this one, I have not read it (yet) it is the same universe, but hundreds of years before. So a prequel, in a way. Tamír Triad, is the name of the trilogy. If you’ve read it and love it, let me know! I tweeted Lynn Flewelling how much I love The Nightrunner Series, and she replied telling me to read Tamír Triad, so I feel like I really should read it! 😂 but for the last time, I seriously recommend this series to everyone! | #shardsoftime #lynnflewelling #nightrunnerseries #seregilíkorit #alecofkerry #seregilofrhíminee #rhimineecat #seregilandalec #lgbtbooks #fantasybooks #gaybooks #gayfantasybooks #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading #books #read
For todays entry of #100daysofbooks we have Casket of Souls by Lynn Flewelling | We are nearing an end to the Nightrunner Series! I really didn’t want this series to end when I was reading it. The last book in the series was released in 2014, and Lynn Flewelling did say the series was at a close. Potentially. I don’t remember word for word what she said, she said it was done but didn’t make any promises. Correct me if I’m wrong? So I’ve accepted that the series is over but my heart will always be open for a new instalment with Seregil and Alec. We still have one more book for tomorrow! | #casketofsouls #lynnflewelling #nightrunnerseries #seregilíkorit #alecofkerry #seregilandalec #seregilofrhíminee #rhimineecat #fantasybooks #gayfantasybooks #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading #lgbtbooks
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is The White Road by Lynn Flewelling | Still a few more books to go in the Nightrunner Series! I always love when a book series is a little longer. I find it comforting knowing I have a few more books left with characters I love. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m all about books with great characters. If I don’t fall in love with a character, then I don’t get fully attached to the story and it can get rather dull. So it’s wonderful that I absolutely adore the characters in these books! | #thewhiteroad #lynnflewelling #nightrunnerseries #seregilíkorit #alecofkerry #seregilofrhíminee #seregilandalec #rhimineecat #lgbtbooks #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading #gaybooks #fantasybooks #gayfantasybooks
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is Shadows Return by Lynn Flewelling | It is the 4th book of the Nightrunner Series. I said in my last post that I viewed the first 3 as its own “trilogy” and the remaining 4 as their own. You can see what I mean based on the cover art? It came out 9 years later so of course the styles are going to be different. I wish I could meet Lynn Flewelling in person to tell her how much these books mean to me! For sure one of my favourite reads of 2017! How’s my camera skills coming along? I feel like I’m improving 😂 so I guess that’s what matters? | #shadowsreturn #lynnflewelling #nightrunnerseries #stagandotter #seregilíkorit #alecofkerry #seregilandalec #lgbtbooks #bookstagram #bookshelf #books #reading
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is Traitor’s Moon by Lynn Flewelling | This is the third book in the Nightrunner series, it’s not a trilogy, even according to Lynn Flewelling it was never intended to be a trilogy. But I just can’t help but thinking of the first 3 as part of their own collection. They all have the same cover style, font and publication style. They were the 3 released in the 90’s. Then 9 years later the rest of the series was continued on. But that is my own thoughts and opinions! If you’ve read them and think otherwise, that’s great! If you haven’t read them, I strongly suggest that you do! They are so entertaining! | #traitorsmoon #lynnflewelling #seregilíkorit #alecofkerry #seregilandalec #nightrunnerseries #ralphlaurenpolo #lgbtbooks #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is Stalking Darkness by Lynn Flewelling | I’m seriously not exaggerating when I say you NEED to read this series! The main characters Seregil and Alec are very well thought out, you will fall in love with them. Fabulous supporting characters as well. And a storyline that is so intriguing you will HAVE to finish the series! | #stalkingdarkness #lynnflewelling #seregilíkorit #alecofkerry #seregilandalec #lgbtbooks #fantasybooks #bookstagram #bookshelf
My entry for todays #100daysofbooks is Luck In The Shadows by Lynn Flewelling | This book was one of my favourite reads of 2017!! If you have not read this book, haven’t heard of it, please look it up and you will not be disappointed! What makes me love a book is the characters, and this book has some of the most interesting and entertaining characters I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading! It’s an LGBT fantasy book, how could you go wrong? (The next few days will be dedicated to the rest of the books in the series) | #luckintheshadows #lynnflewelling #nightrunnerseries #seregilíkorit #alecofkerry #rhíminee #fantasybook #lgbtbook
My entry for todays #100daysofbooks is The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett | It’s a timeless classic that I will always hold dear to my heart. When I need a light read on a rainy day, this is the perfect book to do that. It makes you feel warm, healing and comfortable. The characters are sweet and the setting is gorgeous. | #thesecretgarden #franceshodgsonburnett #classicbooks #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading #books

Todays entry in #100daysofbooks is The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson | This is the last book in the series that I have read. Not that I have anything against the author who continued the series, I just feel out of respect for Stieg Larsson, the original trilogy is the only “real” version. The rest, to me, are another interpretation of the characters. Maybe one day I’ll give them a read, but for now I’ll stick with the original trilogy! | #thegirlwhokickedthehornetsnest #stieglarsson #lisbethsalander #mikaelblomkvist #milleniumtrilogy #crimebook #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading #book #read
Todays entry of #100daysofbooks is The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson | My mom first introduced me to these books years ago after she’d read them on a trip. Lisbeth Salander quickly became one of my favourite literary characters of all time. Something about the darkness in the honesty of the book really resonated with me. It’s been a few years since I’ve read them, I plan on doing a reread sometime this year, but my mind still often goes back to these books and the thoughts I had while reading them. | #thegirlwhoplayedwithfire #stieglarsson #crimebook #lisbethsalander #mikaelblomkvist #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading #book
Todays entry in #100daysofbooks is The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson | If you haven’t already read this book, I highly recommend you do. There are so many lessons to be learned within this book. The characters will captivate you, the stories of violence against women will horrify you. It’s an ugly truth. I was unable to put this book down when I read it years ago. If you love crime books, I would highly recommend this to you. | #thegirlwiththedragontattoo #milenniumtrilogy #stieglarsson #crimebook #bookstagram #bookshelf #reading
