The snow has been replaced by pouring rain, I'm not happy about it, so we're having an inside day. Tab has made me read her the first chapter of War and Peace, apparently we can read it all later! . . . #novelbeanjanuary - Sweater weather. #ampersand2018 - Longest. #theardentbiblioreads - Great cover. . #bookstagram #leotolstoy #warandpeace #vintageclassics #bookandsweater #longestbook #magnificentstanley #aliceinwonderland #libertyprint #warandpeace2018
Making an effort to read less on my iPad so my kids can see me with an actual book vs connected to my tablet. Only one issue is nighttime: I’m usually reading while my husband passes out! I guess it’s time to break out the book light .....
Our ‘Guardian of our Galaxy of Books’ is our sweet German Shepherd, Fin. Many of you have met Belle (from my previous posts) so now I thought you should meet Fin. The inspiration for Fin’s name does not come from ‘Huck Finn’ but it is instead a nod to her tall ears that have always reminded us of a land shark. We know our books are well guarded with Fin on the job! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ“–
A much more recent addition to my #tbrshelf; this was a festive gift from my mother-in-law, who grew up in Nigeria. She's super excited for me to read her favourite book and discuss it with her. No pressure ๐Ÿ˜… • Anyone else been given a book by someone who's really invested in your response?

Unexpectedly home for the afternoon due to a blizzard. (Our office didn’t close, but I made the call to leave, while I could, and barely made it into my driveway.) But I am set to finish two books today! Coffee + Wool Blanket + Cat + Books = A Perfect Snow Day! Shoveling can wait.
Do you have any vacation plans for this year? ๐Ÿ Hubby and I are talking about a family vacation this year. We are looking into Great Wolf Lodge. Anyone been? Other recommendations welcome!! ๐Ÿ Isn’t this tea blend beautiful?? It’s the Sassenach blend by @albionteaco. I love having a themed tea to go along with a book as I read it now!! ๐Ÿ #theardentbiblioreads #literarylifestyle #tbrjanuary #abreathofsnowandashes #outlander #grimdragon #reallylongtitle
Rikki and I decided to read War and Peace this year with #warandpeace2018 and  #warandpeaceclub2018 and we are both a little shocked at how much we’re loving it. ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฏ‍โ™€๏ธ We also published a post this morning about how important choosing a good translation for yourself is and why you should care, including some wise words from a fellow bookstagrammer. Plus you can see which translation we’re using, how we chose it, and why! Link is in our profile, as always ๐Ÿ˜Š  What was the last book in translation you read? #theardentbiblioreads
Happy Monday friends!! . It's the start of a new week ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Though a busy one here. Heralding edits to start over (more on that later), Destinies Entwined to finish typing up (guessing I have another 20k or so to go), and a full work week to plough through ๐Ÿ˜… . Day 22 of... #grimdragon is {#flipthatbook} #theardentbiblioreads is {A book your friend loves} . One of my best friends (who isn't my sister ๐Ÿ˜‰) introduced me to the Clifton Chronicles a few years ago. I started reading it, thinking it wouldn't be my cup of tea, but the first book HOOKED me. Archer writes such fascinating characters and makes you feel so much for them! The final book (featured here) came out last year but I haven't had the courage to pick it up yet and say a finale farewell ๐Ÿ˜ข . But I've made a promise to my friend I'd read it next month so we can talk about it so time to proverbially bite the bullet ๐Ÿ˜ฌ . . QOTD: What is your favourite book that was recommended to you by a friend? . Have a great week everyone ๐Ÿ˜Š . . #bookstagram #booksforlife #bookworm #booklove #booklover #bookaddict #bookaholic #readersofinstagram #readingcommunity #jeffreyarcher #thiswasaman #cliftonchronicles
The snow has melted and left the hill outside as a terrifying ice rink of death! I may be being a little dramatic but I doubt I'd have stayed upright without the pushchair to hold onto! . . . #theardentbiblioreads - A book your friend likes. Will reads a lot of ginormous non-fiction! #ampersand2018 - Luxury. #novelbeanjanuary #totallybookedjanuary - #mapmonday . #bookstagram #foliosociety #nonfiction #greekmyths #vikings #medici #assassins
Is there a book that makes you feel that you’re the only person whose not read it yet? ๐Ÿ— This is exactly how I felt about The Lies of Locke Lamora, until I discovered that Simon @simonreadsbooks and Liz @wildbonbons haven’t read it yet either. So we’re all buddy reading this one next month. I hope it’s a good one! ๐Ÿ— Day 22 - #flipthatbook #grimdragon Day 22 - A book your friend loves. I know that Maraia @lettuce_read loves this one (which actually made me buy). #theardentbiblioreads . . ๐Ÿ— #scottlynch #theliesoflockelamora #instabook #instareads #bibliophile #bookaddict #ilovereading #readaholic #swordandsorcery #tbr #swords #bookphotography #bookstagram #bookish  #fantasy #bookandcandle #booksofinstagram #fantasybooks #coverlove #grimdark #epicfantasy #readreadread #booklove #booklover #bookaholic #met_createchange #bookcommunity
Loving this moody shot of my book baby, Bev! Glad to hear you’re reading my story. It means a lot to have you aboard the ARC team. It’ll be great to discuss it when you’re done. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ–ค๐ŸŒŠโœจ #repost @theconstantvoice with @get_repost ใƒปใƒปใƒป I'm currently lucky enough to be reading an ARC from the lovely @hducarte Holly's debut novel is an atmospheric tale of loss, love and discovery, set against the rugged Canadian coastline.

Day 21 of the Ardent Biblio’s January Challenge is ‘Haven’t Read Yet’ ๐Ÿ˜Š I had to laugh when I read this prompt this morning because I thought ‘How am I going to fit 50 books into this photo???’ ๐Ÿ˜‚ So for the sake of simplicity, I decided to pull only five off my unread shelf. I have owned these colourful classics for twelve months now and am determined to read them all this year. I am very excited to have organised a ‘buddy read’ of ‘Pride and Prejudice’ in February and ‘Sense and Sensibility’ in March. I am planning on reading ‘Huckleberry Finn’ in February, ‘A Little Princess’ in March and ‘Peter Pan’ in July. I have so enjoyed the ‘buddy reads’ I have already done this year and am so keen to do more! If you would like to do a ‘buddy read’ of ‘Huckleberry Finn’, ‘A Little Princess’ or ‘Peter Pan’, please let know! ๐Ÿ˜Š #theardentbiblioreads #readtheclassics2018 #theunreadshelfproject2018 #austen18 #toberead #bookish #bookworm #booklover #bookaddict #bookaholic #ilovebooks #ilovetoread #ilovereading #fortheloveofbooks #fortheloveofreading
It's 5pm here Sunday night and I've finished cutting about 3k from Heritage. Time to call it a day, play some Nancy Drew with my sister, start our rewatch of the Jane Eyre miniseries (Toby & Ruth ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ), and read more of my EVO Ghost arc from @k.j.chapman - which is excellent so far ๐Ÿ˜ . Day 21 of... #storymakers18 is {#shelfiesunday} #theardentbiblioreads is {Haven't read yet} . Here's a whole shelf of unread books. Most are on my TBR this year. I don't even know where to start ๐Ÿ˜ณ . What are your plans this evening, friends? . . #bookstagram #booksforlife #bookworm #booklove #booklover #bookaddict #bookaholic #readersofinstagram #readingcommunity #shelfie #unreadbooks #booksandfunko
This is next up on my TBR (courtesy of @tin_house #partner) and though I haven’t read it yet, I’ve paged through it a little and am already pretty hooked. It’s rare for a new book to push to the top of my stack these days, but The Adulterants sounds like nothing I’ve ever read before. This is why I love small presses so much, you guys; they sincerely put out the most beautifully unusual books. What’s the most unique book you’ve ever read? #theardentbiblioreads #tinhouse #theadulterants
“We can’t fathom why a loved one hides when the doorbell rings or a coworker must understand the origin of every Hamilton lyric or a friend genuinely enjoys chatting with the customer service representative on the other end of the phone line. They’re not crazy; they’re just not us. They’re hardwired differently than we are and personality insights explain why and how.” _________________________________________  #bookstagram #booksofig #booksofinstagram #annebogel #readingpeople #comfortbooks #igbooks #igreads #instabook #bookphotography #personalitytype #theardentbiblioreads #booksandsucculents #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature
