"Well, good-bye for now," he said, rolling his neck as if we hadn't been talking about anything important at all. He bowed at the waist, those wings vanishing entirely, and had begun to fade into the nearest shadow when he went rigid. His eyes locked on mine wide and wild, and his nostrils flared. Shock—pure shock flashed across his features at whatever he saw on my face, and he stumbled back a step. Actually stumbled. "What is—" I began. He disappeared—simply disappeared, not a shadow in sight—into the crisp air." - A Court of Thorns and Roses ⚪ ⚪ ⚪ #acourtofdreamsapril The Attor's Claws - Book and Nails
I love the concept of PARALLEL LINES (@titan_books) -- a dying man decides to rob a bank to provide for his child, but when someone accidentally gets shot in the process, he's surprised to find that the witnesses aren't in a hurry to turn him over to the police. A cover-up follows... but how well can these people that don't know each other fool the police? * This storyline sounds SO intriguing... almost like Coen brothers/Noah Hawley in the type of dark and surprising twists it might contain. My expectations are pretty high so I really hope the book lives up to them! 📚📚 * Have you read PARALLEL LINES? * #cozy#tea#mug#home#mood#lines#picoftheday#igdaily#vsco#vscocam#vscogood
Gdy ci smutno i gdy ci źle... Sięgnij po książkę i naczytaj się! 📖📚 . Rozmowa z pewną personą, której adresu nie podam z powodu takiego, iż wolę uniknąć ewentualnego sądzenia się nawzajem, a jak to mówią: „Z głupim nie wygrasz”, dała mi do myślenia i podsunęła pomysł na tekst, który niedługo pojawi się na blogu... . Odważyłem się przytoczyć powyższe zdanie nie dlatego, iż jestem chamski, ale ponieważ jestem szczery. Pewnie i tak więcej sobie z tą osobą nie pogadamy i w sumie dobrze, bo nikt mnie wcześniej tak nie zirytował i o m.in. irytacji będzie kolejny post na RW. . Swoją drogą, wybrane zdjęcie nie jest przypadkowe, bo poza słowną szarpaniną, będzie też o klasykach, a dokładniej ujmując, o tym, że klasyk klasykowi nie równy – czyli mocno subiektywny przegląd. . #bookstagram#classical#cover#classic#books#reading#classics#shakespeare#mickiewicz#sienkiewicz#beautiful#bookcover#reader#bloger#me 😬
Excuse me while I daydream of a bubble bath, a good book, and a glass of wine. Instead, this afternoon is filled with a quick gym workout, a hardware store trip, and cleaning the house. . Anybody else like a good bubble bath?
break time! crazy day and still buzzing & delirious from @theweeknd's concert last night. just glad the weather is nice today, much-needed break from all that craziness! currently reading, "Speak Love: Making Your Words Matter" by Annie Downs. This was a very random purchase from my neighborhood used bookstore, just loved the title. I didn't realized I was not part of the demographic the book was intended for until I started reading it, but I'm still enjoying Annie's writing, and there is siways something to learn. Happy reading! 🤓✌️📖 . . You've heard, "Think before you speak" a hundred times, and probably shrugged it off just like that other insightful phrase, "Your face will freeze like that if you're not careful." But unlike a facial expression, our words do stick around. (Just think about middle school a sec. See?) Which means everything you say—from what tell your friends, whisper about your enemies, post online, mutter to yourself, or even say to the celebrity you ran into at the coffee shop—carries a whole lot of power. . The question is, are you ready to use that power to make a real difference? Because the truth is, you could be part of the first generation who uses their words to build up and not tear down, and even kill the mean girl mentality. Through very funny stories, Scripture, and a real understanding of the good, bad, and ugly ways we can use our words, Annie Downs explores the difference you can make when you speak love to others, to God, and even to yourself. Because when you speak love, you speak life. And that's what matters. via @goodreads . . #speaklove#anniedowns#zondervan#nonfiction#personaldevelopment#selfhelp#spiritualgrowth#april#aprilreadingchallenge#goodreads#goodreadsreadingchallenge#readingchallenge#currentlyreading#book#bookish#read#reading#reader#bibliophile#booknerd#bookworm#bookholic#booklove#bookstagram#instabook#instareads#igbooks#ilovetoread#ilovebooks#tbr
