This tail with a tale:

Good morning, y'all ☀️☀️☀️ The sunshine emojis are there to make me feel better because it's actually 4:30am here and the world must be ending because I'm not asleep? Actually, my boyfriend and I share a car and he has to be at work at 5. So we woke up at 3:30? • While I'm suffering through this terrible torture, LOOK HOW CUTE THIS BOOK IS. This book came in the last Book Boyfriend Box and it looks so cute. It's about a girl using things she's learned from k-dramas to help her snag a boyfriend in real life. I'm excited to read it, but not yet because I'm just not in a contemporary mood. My ginger kitty is excited too. He "helps" me take all my book pictures? • What are you guys excited about reading soon? • • • #read #bibliophile #booklover #yabooks #contemporarybooks #cozyreading #catsofbookstagram #bookish #bookcat #bookcover #bookblog #bookgram #bookgeek #bookstagram #bookstagramfeatures #bookblog #bookphotography #booknookstagram #book_cave #bookalicious #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookandcat #summerreading #literature #love #cat #catsofinstagram

This excellent reading partner:

I started the day reading in bed (who am I kidding, I'm STILL in bed) with the ? — my ideal Saturday morning. If I can pull myself out from these covers, I think I'll go grab some coffee and head to the farmers market. There's nothing planned this weekend + I love it. (We leave for vacation in a few days and I feel like there are 16436845052 to do before we leave. Don't you wish you could just beam yourself places sometimes?) Tell me what you're up to today! • @fsgoriginals sent these two books last week and I'm SO excited. I've heard great things about both, and as a fan of scary, creepy stories I have a feeling ill gobble them up. I devoured all R.L. stone books when I was younger (Fear Street, anyone?), as well as the Scary Stories To Tell in the Dark books. Bring on the scary! ? • #miniatureschnauzer #gusandus #badassbookbabes #pupstagram #schnauzer #dogsofinsta
