"Is this the part where you tell me you're secretly in love with me? Vampire mojo strikes again." .
.
.
Can you guys believe it's been 10 years since the Shadowhunters and Downworlders have been revealed to us Mundanes?
.
@cassieclare1
.
And aaaaaaalot has happened since! Characters discovering what (and who) they really are. Characters turning into things and then turning into something else entirely. Ships sail. Ships fail. Ships you never saw coming (probably because you were still hung up on your OG pair!) .
.
And then there's your garden variety of magical folk and other worldly beings. Angels. Warlocks. Vamps. Werewolves. Faeries. Demons of all shapes and sizes. .
.
But let's talk about Vamps ..since that's what today's prompt calls for! I wasn't feeling another Twilight or TVD photo sesh and was wracking my brain for another book that had bloodsuckers in it... and BAM 💥 thought of Simon! (Simon Lewis that is -- not Simon Spier) 😜 .
.
My gosh this boy has been on a life changing rollercoaster! -- many a times I may add! .
.
Mundane to ➡ Vampire to ➡ Daylighter (which is still a vamp but who can now tan instead of sizzle!) to ➡ Shadowhunter. Oh, and he also went from Simon Lewis to ➡ Simon Lovelace.
.
*Pheeww!* 😅
.
Do guys remember the innocent, semi-nerdy mundane Simon? .

💬 I think I've asked this before but anyways -- If you could be any one of these magical folks, which type would you be?

I went to bootcamp today and basically died. 😂 I’ve almost been going for a year and I swear it isn’t getting easier!

#QOTD: do you have some favourite candles?
.
These ones from @inthewickoftime are part of their ACOTAR range, and smell amazing! My personal favourite is the Rhysand scent, as it is the right blend of citrus and sea that totally invokes High Lord images. I’m on a ban from buying new candles until I work through this currently lot!

#janinbooks18 | show your #bookmerch love: candles are my weakness!

Wow, an Aussie Book Fairy is visiting Europe and doing some book drops!
• • •
Repost from @bookfairies_aus An Aussie Book Fairy is on holiday in Europe. She has been hiding some wonderful books along her travels! We just love seeing #travelingbookfairies especially Aussie ones 😍

It is a wonderful way to bring your suitcase back lighter than when you left! Or lets be honest just a good way to make room for all the books and souvenirs you buy along the way. There is something extra special about hiding books on holidays 📗

This wonderful Fairy has left a copy of The Handmaid's Tale at the Swedish gate in the old town of Riga 💚

'Morganville, Texas, isn't like any other towns. Oh, it's small, dusty and ordinary, in most ways, but the thing is, there are these - well let's not be shy about it - VAMPIRES' The Morganville Vampires 💋
I'm missing some from this series, I guess that's what happens when u become a library to friends. I have learned my lesson even though books have been lost in the process.. 😧

Seeing out the last day of the year with a delicious lunch & cheeky Pimms cocktail before we head back to the farm this arvo 🍹

2017 has been a big year of finding my feet in Melbourne, starting a new job & meeting lots of new people. I started this “bookstagram” account back in January as a way to track what I’m reading & to share my love of books with a wider community. I’ve read a total of 34 books this year which have all taught me something or given me a new perspective.

I personally don’t like to set reading goals; I read for enjoyment & feel much happier when I read what I want, when I want. Sometimes I’ll power through a book in one day, others I’ll spend a couple of weeks taking in the story & reading at a leisurely pace. I have friends who are super happy to read a book per month and others who have read over 100 books this year. There really are no rules 📖💛 Thanks for following along with me & wishing you all the best for 2018 📚🐛

Did you know that much of Book II in 'The Oremere Chronicles' takes place in a winter setting? Working through the manuscript has me longing to return to the snow... ❄️❄️❄️

Im #currentlyreading The Last Namsara and its so good. I always worry when books get so much hype, will they live up to it. I believe this one certainly does. What are you reading today?

Back to my Potter roots! ⚡
.
.
After multiple SJM posts, I finally have some HP love coming at ya! 🙌🙌🙌
.
MONSTERS #beastlybooksjanuary18 .
.
I think if I read Percy Jackson (and loved it).. then this could easily have been a PJ appreciation post. There's tons of "monsters" in that series, right?
.
But alas (sheesh! I'm sound Dumbledore-esque... "Alas") 😅 Harry Potter it is! .
.
Monsters. Magical Creatures. Beasts. Good or Bad. I love them all! How could I not when they're from the wizarding world!
.
Remember that scene in Philospher's Stone where Harry, Ron, Hermione and Draco had to go into the Forbidden Forest with Hagrid and they split into two separate groups. .
.
Well... .
.
Fun fact: If I could choose, I always wanted to go with Harry, Draco and Fang. Ok..mostly because of Draco 😜 but you just know wherever Harry is..trouble (and magical beasts) were bound to be there! Am I right...?? 😉
.
.
💭 Hmm. If Hagrid could only have one magical creature in his care, which one do you think he would choose? .
.

“I’d rather die on an adventure than live standing still.”
- V.E. Schwab, A Darker Shade of Magic
.
I recently read the first book in the A Darker Shade of Magic and I cannot wait until I can get my hands on the next two. I’m currently on a book buying ban until I’ve cleared through more of my TBR list, so I really hope I can do so soon. .
#QOTD: what is a book that you couldn’t put down when you finally read it?

Because I've run out of ideas for book photos I've decided to join in on #fanaticalbirdjan so this is day 16 #whitebooks
I LOVE all of my white books. The white makes all the other colours on the covers or spines stand out more vibrantly and they just look beautiful!! 😍😍😍

"I look around at us and you know what I see? Losers... I mean like, folks who have lost stuff. And we have, man, we have, all of us. Homes, and our families, normal lives. And you think life takes more than it gives, but not today. Today it's giving us something. It is giving us a chance." - Peter Quill ⭐️ #aussiebibliophile 🇦🇺 - - - - -

TIMES UP! Sexual harassment is not ok! Yes the majority of time it is men harassing women but men do suffer too. Speaking from experience there isn't always a whole lot the police are willing to do about it. Why? No witnesses, no evidence, I don't know but it sucks the life out of u. This statistic makes me want to be sick. What do our daughters have to look forward to when men are treating them like this & police aren't helping.
