Physical books or ebooks?
πŸ“š
lately i’m drawn more to ebooks. shocker, i know. but it’s so much easier to find about the book i want and have it sent to my tablet in seconds. you gotta love technology, especially when 80% of my life revolves around my laptop and my phone. i also love when i can easily find new book recommendations (please, make my tbr list longer than it already is). that’s why i partnered up with @whatbookapp and here me out cause we are bringing you some sweet, sweet stuff.
πŸ“š
but first, what is whatbook? simply put, it’s a way to find the next book to read with fast and reliable recommendations from people you know, trust, and follow. you can create lists of the books you’ve read and want to read by simply curating collections of books for specific genres, topics, and classes. search for a book and immediately see if anyone you follow has read it, and if they would recommend it or not.
πŸ“š
currently whatbook only works for ios, but it also will be available for android soon. so, for the people with apple, i highly recommend you to download the app because next week we are going to have a huge giveaway (how does „a year worth of books” sound? ;) ).

Do you re-read books?
πŸ“š
once in a while i like to surprise you with a shelfie. it reconnects my account to its true roots haha. especially when i can proudly show off my first #owlcrate box and the first book that i've got from them.
πŸ“š
to answer my question, i don't. the only time i re-read something was when the 3rd asoiaf came out and i wanted to read the first 2 again because i thought i forgot what happened. it has been a boring experience and i've never done it after that. first of all, i'm looking for new stories, i'm looking for not knowing what happens - no matter how good the book might be, re-reading it won't feel the same as the first time. second, i think it makes the book more special knowing that i'm reading it for the first and only time.
πŸ“š
but, to be honest, i would like to re-read a few books. my mind jumps to the passage by justin cronin. or steelheart.
πŸ“š
don't forget to use elizabeth for both @owlcrate and @owlcrate jr for a discount to your next order.

Finish the sentence. i should...
πŸ“š
be more patient. when opening bookish boxes. when opening emails. when waiting at the queue. i'm a super chill person, but sometimes i just can't hold my excitement or my nerves :))
πŸ“š
the september starcrossed swoons @fairyloot box is available now. don't forget to take advantage of my name to save money (elizabeth5).
πŸ“š
this month's box contained, among other things, a heat mug which i absolutely loved and heart of thorns by bree barton which i can't wait to start!

Pick one: never read another book, never listen to another song, never watch another movie/tv series.
πŸ“š
nothing new on the western front. i've finished taking the new batch of pics for the next month and tomorrow i'm going home. catwoman awaits for me.

What are you currently reading?
πŸ“š
i haven't been able to finish anything lately, even though i'm interested in some books. i started fight club, the supervillain and me, ninth city burning, trying to find something that clicked. it wasn't the books' fault, but the fact that i'm busy and when the night finally comes i'm to tired to read. but two days ago i started catwoman by sjm and it finally clicked haha. πŸ“š
another book that is on my list is this one, the shadow minds journal by @kia_crystal
*
synopsis:
in this world, there are creatures lurking in the shadows. as a child, i once played with them. as a teenager, i began to fear them and became victim to their attacks. as an adult, i now realize that no matter how much i try to escape the grasp of this world, i was inevitably born into it. *
now reborn as a guardian in the world of 2986, vivian must uphold the treaty between angels and demons on the human world and city of shabeah. contracted to seven demons who she can shift into while taking direct orders from the underworld lord, haymen, it wasn’t exactly her ideal rebirth. *
still fighting those who try to possess her during her sleep, vivian must now record and try to hunt the volv through the shadow minds journal. suspicious after the death of a fellow soldier, the angel of war, gabe, convicts vivian of m****r and confines himself to her for thirty days. stuck between the hatred and lust of two of the most powerful entities in all worlds, vivian is involved inevitably in the upcoming conflict. blood. lust. war. she must k**l before being killed.

Finish the sentence: i like it when...
πŸ“š
...i find that the theme of the book box that i was sent, @beaconbookbox , is one my one fictional obsession: superpowers. i think everyone knows at this point how obsessed i'm with stories about superheroes/supervillains so i won't start talking about it for the 17th time.
πŸ“š
funny thing, i did not steal this pic idea from james. actually, it was the other way around. i like it when, after snapping at each other "don't steal my ideas" (without really being serious about it), one of us comes with with a new idea for a pic, and the other one is like "can i use this too?". usually the answer "yes, but i post it first". however, i let him post it first cause i'm a good friend. praise me.
πŸ“š
going back, i loved this box! it's a fairly new book box but they are doing a great job. i'm using the rice eye mask almost every single night and i loved the tea. i love when the boxes contain useful stuff. also, the book was the supervillain and me by danielle banas which i haven't read yet because i have some busy days, but i can't wait to start it!

if you feel like taking advantaje of my name to save money, the code is liz10 .

by the way, this is a new #womenofbooks pic. if you don't know what i'm talking about, if you use this hashtag when you're portraying a powerful woman, i might shoutout you in my stories.

If you were transported to the setting of the book you're currently reading, how s*****d would you be on a scale from 1 to 10?
πŸ“š
the @owlcrate box arrived a few days ago and it was one of the most consistent boxes i've ever got. however, i must say, even if i would like to get more edible stuff inside a book box, for my own health i better not. do you know what eating 30 mints almost at once does to your stomach? well, if you don't, i hope you never find out πŸ˜…
πŸ“š
if you want to take advantage of my name to save money, use elizabeth at your next #owlcrate order (joke stolen from @grumpyreads ).

Tell me one crazy thing that you've done with your best friend.
πŸ“š
when i saw the whp project ( #whpbestfriends ), i knew exactly what to do. if you've been following me for some time, you know who @james_trevino is. the ying-yang symbol is a good representation of how things always were between us. at the beginning of our friendship, 11 years ago, there wasn't a single subject we agreed on, but for some reason talking with each other was super interesting and never once did i get mad like you would expect to get when someone disagrees with you on everything.
even now, when we are on the same page almost every time, this symbol continues to represent our friendship because of all the things that i s**k at and that he is mastering (and the other way around) and because of how well we work together.

Heroes or villains?
πŸ“š
i'm a sucker for villains. villains or anti-heroes, but mostly villains. this is why i adored hela. and loki. and thanos. steppenwolf was lame lol. ultron was ok. my favourite character in lotr was sauron. i had a crush on venom. have you watched chronicle from 2012? i loved andrew. give me a guy who wants to bring the world to its knees and i'll devour anything i can find about him. or her. i want to see villains who don't lose and heroes who bleed.
πŸ“š
but i want to see them in books and in movies only.

Is there any story that you would love to read about, but it seems like nobody wrote it?
πŸ“š
the road from starting to write a book to actually seeing it on the shelves is getting harder with each step forward. actually, the only thing that's really easy is starting to write - no rules, no limits, no plotholes, no deadlines and most important, no doubts. everything is possible when you have a story and big dreams. but even after you beat the boss of writing and your book is done (or so you think), you realise there are bigger bosses out there. the boss of publishing. the boss of marketing. the boss of intellectual propriety rights. and boy it's scary. the publishing industry is scary. querying is scary. you don't have to impress your friends anymore, you have to impress strangers. you suddenly realise that everything you've done so far has been easy.
πŸ“š
so why am i talking about all of this?
πŸ“š
i'm talking about all of this because if my caption hit close to home, then @goscribbler might come in handy. goscribbler is a subscription box created by two amazing authors, @realvictoriascott and @authorlindsaycummings. basically it's a subscription box for authors, by authors, and it might help you, fellow writer, a lot. in our world, what is more important than having done your homework and not going blindly into what could pay your bread?

reading update: well, this has been a busy week so i haven't finished anything :)) i only started another german book with short stories and kinda left the one i was already reading for later. how was your week reading-wise?
πŸ“š
this pic is inspired by @annas.buecher... and by an idea that i had a few months ago but it didn't work out then because i used a real umbrela and it looked really bad πŸ˜…. also, i'm giving a shoutout to @book.lover24 because she also did a cool umbrela! πŸ˜†
