You might be thinking- Kristen is posting ANOTHER #grishaverse picture? Why yes I am. Can there be too many? In my world- NEVER.
You might be aware that @illumicrate is doing an exclusive Grisha themed box? The official theme is SAINTS AND SCARS and there are only a limited number left. It will include an exclusive #kingofscars -if you are intrigued head over to @illumicrate for all the deets.
This is just the start of my Grisha collection but there is so much I can’t fit it in one picture. Which fandom do you have the most merch for?
Oh, yes in case you notice the new cover edition for #shadowandbone is missing it is because I’m rereading it right now and am too lazy to walk downstairs to get it.
The snow doesn't give a soft white damn whom it touches.
Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
There’s a massive snowstorm brewing here so you’ll find me hiding/reading in my library, wearing my cozies. What are you up to today? Read anything good lately?

feeling so gatsby ✨ earrings gifted by @happinessbtq
Do you own any book-related jewelry?
I love having little tokens that remind me of my favourite stories! These particular earrings had such a strong Gatsby vibe, I instantly fell in love and was so glad when Hapiness Boutique sent them to me. I really like the different styles in their store, and if you want to browse around, you can get 10% off any order over 19€ until March 1st by using the code black.tea.books 💍 Also, now I really want to pick up The Great Gatsby, but that will have to wait as I'm still doing my female-author-only reading month!
As of right now, I'm reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and noticed two things: The beginning is actually a strong hint on JKR's future with crime books! And, since The Crimes of Grindelwald, I have an entirely different view on Nagini. What are your theories on her later life, is she still in there or is it all You Know Who by now? 🤔
It's #StaffPickSaturday ! Library Associate Tess has chosen Elevation by Stephen King. She says: "I like Elevation because it has believable characters struggling in believable situations, who come out better on the slightly 'otherworldly' side." Do you have a book or movie that you want to share with the world? Let us know - it might even be featured! #LibraryLife#LibrariesRock#librariesofinstagram#amreading
A true #booknerd goes to a book signing and then buys three ADDITIONAL new releases (with reward certificates, no less!! Bonus points for also receiving two preordered books in the mail and level up + go straight to the bonus round for ALSO getting a book subscription box containing a special edition of a book for the evening's signing! Here's yesterday's #bookhaul , together with everything I brought from home because @wednesdaybooks is AMAZING and sent @roshanichokshi to my neck of the woods!
I had preordered STAIN by @aghoward_writes together with ECHO NORTH by Joanna Ruth Meyer because of the awesome pre-order gift campaign, then added THE GILDED WOLVES by Roshani Chokshi, IN AN ABSENT DREAM by @seananmcguire (I read the ARC last year and have been waiting for this!), DRAGON PEARL by Yoon Ha Lee from the fantastic Disney + Rick Riordan Presents Line, and RULE by Ellen Goodlett on sale for 50% off! So much amazing reading (and re-reading!) ahead!!!

I think this is my favorite short stoy in the book so far. Mayne it's the sci-fi elements. Maybe it's because it's the one I've seen myself in the most. But I also still have a few stories left to read!
📚 #QOTD : What's your favorite short story?
“Malcolm was worrying about Susan, his fiancée. He hadn’t seen her in several days and the last time they’d spoken she had called him a rude and vulgar name. Frances’s concern was existential; she lately found herself mired in an eerie feeling, as one standing with her back to the ocean. Small Frank, elderly to the point of decrepitude, clambered onto the table and sat before Frances. She and the cat stared at each other. Frances lit a cigarette and exhaled a column of smoke into his face. He winced and left the room.” .
Page 8 and I already have missed Patrick DeWitt’s writing. Have any of you read this one? I’m hoping to get through it today (library due dates are big motivators) and loved his other two novels from the past couple years. Unrelated: our dog Luna decided she wanted in on this picture. . #bookstagram#books#frenchexit#patrickdewitt#amreading#currentlyreading
“When it’s over, I want to say: all my life I was a bridge married to amazement. I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.” —Mary Oliver.
Rest in peace, Mary, knowing you have done what you set out to do.🍂
MY daddy is here y’all, and I don’t like to share him. But because it is release day for @briannahalebooks then I suppose today would be okay to share him with y’all— so take advantage of the fact that Daddy Misha is out there for everyone to enjoy😏✨
I posted my ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ star review that is now up on my blog, so go make sure to read it and let me know what you think! (Link in bio) And do not forget to grab yourself a copy of COME TO DADDY and enjoy it this weekend✨
