"There is no remedy for love but to love more."
Having such a fun time with The Rules of Magic. It has all the whimsical, magical qualities that make books like this so easy to get caught up in. Hoffman's theme that humans sometimes see love as a curse only bringing harm can be so true and it's a good reminder to love love
So I have a very rigid rule when it comes to dystopians. This is because I’m weird and a bit of a scaredy-cat. Basically I can handle almost anything as long as it’s not a dystopian of this world. Give me zombies on a spaceship and I’m all over it. 🧟♀️Give me a zombie apocalypse set on earth 30 years from now? Nope. Just can’t. I guess the best dystopians take human ideals or science and use them to scare the absolute bejesus out of you. My problem is that our society already scares the absolute bejesus out of me and I think we are fully capable of going all out dystopian! I don’t want for the worst to happen and be sitting there thinking ‘I’ve read this. It does not end well!’
Also, on that note. If there is an apocalypse of some kind I’d rather just bite the dust in the first wave. I really don’t think I’m up for all the drama of looking for food, hiding from whatever awful creature (human or otherwise) is at the top of the food chain and I’m sorry but I need to be able to shower!

I've been making challenges, mostly because I need something since I have so few books to use for pictures So I'll keep making them until I at least move and have access again to my books

It's already been a year since I read Stalking Jack The Ripper, and now Hunting Prince Dracula is here I can easily say that stalking Jack the ripper was my favourite book of 2016, and I have really high hopes for hunting prince dracula! I'm so exited!!
I’m currently reading the illustrated version of “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” and I’m loving it so much! Jim Kay did a wonderful job with those illustrations! I’m also waiting for the Italian release of the illustrated edition of “Fantastic Beasts and where to find them”, I hope it will come out soon!
After finishing HP I really don’t know what to read! I might read some Jane Austen, but I don’t know which book I should read first: I have read Sense and Sensibility before and sadly I didn’t enjoy it much, this time I want the reading experience to be amazing! The book in the picture is Persuasion, in this Italian edition I personally am very fond of. Do you recommend it or should I read another one of her novels first? Let me know!

Wyatt Armstrong never imagined that instead of celebrating his college graduation, he and his twin sister would be dealing with the death of their parents. Then again, Wyatt had never been one to think past tomorrow. He heads to their summer home in Harborside, Massachusetts, with his best friend Cassidy Lowell in tow, to deal with his parents' death and to try to figure out his next step.
Six foot two, infuriatingly handsome, and flirtatious, Wyatt Armstrong has always been there for Cassidy, helping her pass her classes and fend off unwanted advances, while driving her insane with his one-night stands--but that's what best friends are for, isn't it? Having each other's backs. There was never any doubt that she would accompany him to his family's summer home--but she never expected to begin seeing Wyatt as more than a friend. Or has she been ignoring her feelings all along?
It's impossible to ignore the sizzling heat between them as Wyatt and Cassidy get even closer, but Cassidy knows Wyatt's past, and she has a real job to begin in the fall. Wyatt may be a sure thing for the summer, but Cassidy needs more. For the first time in his life, Wyatt is forced to look toward the future if he doesn't want to lose the one woman who's shared his past and owns his heart.
