With February behind us, the first thing I did this month was go to the library, because, you know, obviously my priorities are in order and rather than vacuum the house or mop the floors I figured, BOOKS!
On a side note, the vacuuming has yet to happen. Bad Nicolette, bad! *lol* Though in all seriousness, I still could care less about the vacuuming and the mopping. That probably makes me a terrible person to the uber clean freak somewhere and I am deeply sorry to offend you, but as previously stated, my priorities are properly aligned in the realm of what book are getting read this month. (Btw, anyone else pronounce “vacuum” in their heads the way that Youtube Cat does, with a long “U” in the center, so phonetically “vacuum” sounds more like “vacoooom”? Because literally that’s what I’m doing every time I write it out and I’m immature enough to laugh each time. >.<
The purpose of my library visit was to pick up “Glass Sword” because it had quite literally been there the day before when I checked online. As are such things, when I showed up not even 12 hours later some fiend had snatched it off the shelves. (BTW, if you’re the fiend, I will find you….Lol, just kidding, I won’t…maybe *shifty eyes*)
Anyhow, since my first choice was magically stolen by a devilish leprechaun (yes, I am going to pin it one on of those guys, because obviously they’re out there) I forced myself out of my comfort zone and picked up not one but two contemporaries that were sitting on the display shelf.
Were their beautiful covers beckoning me? Yeah, sure. Did I absolutely judge these books by their covers, not read their synopsis and do I still have zero idea what they’re even about? Yeah, pretty much.
The two fantasy books I picked up, were no brainers, I’ve been wanting to read both for a while so when I saw them sitting patiently waiting for me on the shelf I new it was destiny. (Or whatever.)
As soon as I got home, I decided it was time to snap some pics for my much neglected Instagram account and lo an behold, this is what happens when two bookish monsters invade your photoshoot.
Everything seems normal….well normal-ish. But there’s something off, why is this pic cropped weird I wonder?
Because a little miniature book dragon is trying to pilfer A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES on the other side of the frame, that’s why!

This is what happens when you wish for a photoshoot assistant and you get one. Be careful what you wish for. 😛 Oh and you see that row that I set up all nice neat like the obsessive perfectionist that I am (and yes, I had to resist the urge to pull out a ruler for)…yeah, that one…Well, like dominoes they fall man, like dominoes they fall.
Just when I thought, “Jee, having an assistant to help me set up my photos would be nice.” I get one…. *deadpans*

This is one of my favs and one of those candid moments that I was soo glad I had my phone out for. He's clearly diggin' up there for gold, has zero idea that I'm snapping a pic of him and it's a testament to the fact that he's literally always doing this, like ALL THE TIME!! >.<
If he hadn’t been photobombing me, I wouldn’t have captured this moment! Now it is solidified forever and he will hate this until the end of time!!! Mwahahaha. Or not. I mean he is a boy. He might be like “Meh, whatevs Mom, you’re so weird.”
And then this happened and my heart melted into a sopping puddle of goo.
So yeah, little miniature humans invading bookstagram photoshoots is actually quite magical, and fun and downright adorable.
And like, I realize that maybe it’s not everyone’s thing becuase they want like super perfect shots and they want bookporn to drool over, but these kinds of pics are 100% me. This is my life and it’s my Instagram and it combines the things that I love most. And those things happen to be my little rascals and books.
So will I be letting my kids photobomb my shoots from now on? Ummm…is that even a serious question? Like, hella to the yes I will! *Pfft* Will I be allowing adorableness invade my Intsagram, that’s like asking me if I want sprinkles on my ice-cream. You always say “yes” to the sprinkles. Always. It’s like sushi. There is no “sushi or not to sushi” You ALWAYS “TO SUSHI”!!! >.< That’s some sage wisdom right there.
Have you read any of the books in my haul this month? What were your thoughts? No big spoilers, but were they like super awesome, was the writing magical, any swoony romances for me to get excited for, because just case no one has noticed I dig a triangle or two, or square, or pentagon. I dig tension people and all the angsty feels!!! >.< I’m such a sucker for those!
Speaking of which. What’s your favorite angsty, feels-filled book of all time..on the count of three you tell me like the amazing human you are! Okay? One..two..three…GO! ^.^
