I suppose Ill go back first thing Tuesday.but I did pick up Tell Me Three Things! It looks so cute!  What is the last book you bought?  Day 20: #lilthisorthat {black or white spines} black.

Thank you to @wednesdaybooks and @macmillanusa for sending me this copy of Shadowsong. If you read Wintersong make sure youve pre-ordered this beauty so you get it when it releases on February 6! Im really excited to read this one. Ive heard great things.  Silly question if this book was named after you...what would it be called? Take your defining attribute and add song to the end. For me it would be Sleepysong. I am forever tired for some reason....  #dreambunnybookishjan18 #bookstar…

If you ever looked at the search history of an authors computer you would totally think they were some sort of serial killer. One of the things I researched when writing this book was how to escape from plastic cuff ties...which seems creepy. But the weirdest thing I researched was unique defenses of animals. My characters in this book have been genetically altered to be weapons and their powers were modeled after things seen in nature...the mimic octopus the archerfish Malaysian fire ant…

Are you a #cohort (aka a Colleen Hoover fan)? I am an avid fan of @colleenhoover and her books. Plus shes a pretty awesome human with a wicked sense of humor and a heart thats bigger than Texas. Here is my collection of CoHo books. I havent read Too Late or Without Merit yet because my TBR is also bigger than Texas.

Time to share the December @shelflovecrate Timeless box....It was absolutely amazing! The planner was epically cool the pillow is gorgeous I cant wait to frame the prints I can think of Jamie Fraser when I use my Sassenach soap and Ive always wanted a timeturner necklace. Not to mention that the book Everless was fantastic and I now have a super cool magnet.  The February Hide and Seek box is now on sale so grab yours while you can. Use my code XENA10 to save on your subscription.  Included…

This is just a fun pic. Ive been inspired by all the cosplay and creative pics Ive seen by @myfriendsarefiction @darkfaerietales_ and @cbookaddiction lately. I kind of stink at the cosplay but I still have some of my graphic design skills so I played around a bit today.  If you could get any book handed to you right now what would you want?  #photoshop #bookandmirror #cosplayersofinstagram #bookstagrammer #magical #xenatine #booklover #mirrorselfie #collectivelycreate #myhappycapture…

GIVEAWAY Im so excited to read this book. It sounds a really unique fantasy. I love the idea of everyone being born with a twin.  In the Alskad Empire nearly all are born with a twin two halves to form one wholeyet some face the world alone.  The Diminished by@verykaitlynsagetells the story of Bo and Vi. They have lived verydifferent lives but their fate is moreintertwined then they thought possible. If you are a YA fantasy fanmake sure to add it tour your TBR piles it will be releasing in…

I dont usually make TBRs anymore because I rarely follow them but this month I promised myself I was going to read the Aira Awakens series and the Alchemists of Loom series by @elise.kova since I owned them all. I finished Earths End this weekend and am now on book four Waters Wrath. So you make TBRs and follow them or are you a moody reader?  Candle by @noxtolumoscandleco Use my code TINE20 for 20% off.

Thank you so much to @penguinteen for sending me a copy of Beasts Made of Night to read and review. This book sounds really good!  Since there is a threat of another snow day tomorrow for my kids I thought it was the perfect chance to share a #booksnowflake with you. Do you like the snow? And if youve never seen snow do you want to?

Ive seen so many new readers entering the #vampireacademy world lately so I thought it would be a good chance to feature another old favorite series of mine the Bloodlines series. This is the spinoff of the Vampire Academy and stars Sydney Sage (an alchemist who Rose meets in the VA series) and Adrian Ivashkov (my darling little broken bad boy vamp). I was always Team Adrian in the Vampire Academy series so I loved having this spinoff in the same world to get more of him.  Were you Team…

SYNOPSIS When Earth intercepts a message from a long-extinct alien race it seems like the solution humanity has been waiting for. The Undying's advanced technology has the potential to undo environmental damage and turn lives around…
