This is my favorite fall scent from bath and body works. I bought it last year and I still have a good amount left to burn during this fall season. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- @myhoneyreads and I decided we would reread twilight to see if it's really all that cringe. I'm excited to see if my opinion has changed now that I'm an aldut. I was a die hard twi-hard back in the day and I had so many twilight posters. Will I switch to Team Jacob? Time will tell. I'm going to start reading it today.
Day 5 : The Abyss Surrounds You by Emilie Skrutskie . Synopsis: Cas has fought pirates her entire life. But can she survive living among them? For Cassandra Leung, bossing around sea monsters is just the family business. She’s been a Reckoner trainer-in-training ever since she could walk, raising the genetically-engineered beasts to defend ships as they cross the pirate-infested NeoPacific. But when the pirate queen Santa Elena swoops in on Cas’s first solo mission and snatches her from the bloodstained decks, Cas’s dream of being a full-time trainer seems dead in the water. . There’s no time to mourn. Waiting for her on the pirate ship is an unhatched Reckoner pup. Santa Elena wants to take back the seas with a monster of her own, and she needs a proper trainer to do it. She orders Cas to raise the pup, make sure he imprints on her ship, and, when the time comes, teach him to fight for the pirates. If Cas fails, her blood will be the next to paint the sea. . . I’ve already talked about this book in a previous post since I read it just a few weeks ago. I hadn’t read a futuristic book in forever, but this was nice for a change. I took me some time to get into it, but once I was it was a really nice read. And it has an enemies to lovers trope, aka my absolute favourite. The romance is only just beginning in this book, I’m quite excited to see how it’ll turn out in the second book, but I’m really happy with how it was handled. Enemies to lovers can easily be unhealthy because of power imbalance, but this one isn’t at all, I loved how both characters agree nothing can happen between them until they’re on “equal footing”. So yeah, pirates, sea monsters, lesbians, enemies to lovers, this book is just a great mix of amazing things. . . What are your favourite tropes? . . . . #bookstagram#booknerd#book#instabooks#bookphotography#booklover#bookstagramfeature#bookstagrammer#bookish#booknookstagram#instabook#reading#bookishfeatures

I got this book by @jimitewe for 5k but I can boldly say that the amount is an "insult" to the amazing contents in the book. To put it simply, the book is LOADED. So, here is what I want us to do today: post a picture of the book you are currently reading as a comment to this post. I want to my friends who are truly readers... LOL. If it is an ebook, post the cover of the book. If it is hard copy, snap the picture of the book and post. Now, who goes first?
