"Our aim will be to defy the enemy and destroy their morale by being a general nuisance with tricks, pigs and catapults."⁠ πŸ–β  Set in Jersey and spanning two years of the German Occupation during World War Two (1940-1941), A CAKE FOR THE GESTAPO by Jacqueline King focuses on a group of school children forming a Resistance Club and vowing to do whatever they can to annoy the German soldiers until they leave the island. It's a well-researched and engaging addition to the canon of war fiction and should be essential reading for all school children. ⁠ πŸ–β  Thank you to @zuntold_books for my complimentary copy. ⁠ πŸ–β  #bookstagram #books #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #igreads #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #middlegrade #worldwartwo #acakeforthegestapo #jacquelineking

β€œI hope you will keep the world unruly, messy, full of strange magics; I hope you will run through every open Door and tell stories when you return.”⁠ πŸšͺ⁠ One of my favourite books of last year was THE TEN THOUSAND DOORS OF JANUARY by @alix.e.harrow. It's a book for book lovers, written by a bibliophile with a reverence for stories and a belief in the power of words and the indelible marks they leave on readers. Who else adored this book?⁠ πŸšͺ⁠ I'm so excited for the author's next book (THE ONCE AND FUTURE WITCHES) out later this year and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some special editions.⁠ πŸšͺ⁠ #bookstagram #books #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #igreads #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #thetenthousanddoorsofjanuary #alixeharrow #tenthousanddoors

"We're the Bataillon des Mortes, we cheat death. We don't lose to it."⁠ ☠️⁠ I was so excited when @Illumicrate announced their April theme as I'd already read the chosen book and wanted a hardback for my shelves. DANGEROUS REMEDY by @katalicedunn is a fast-paced, heart-pounding adventure set in a realistically evocative Revolutionary Paris. I was also thrilled to receive this gorgeous bonus art print by @nicole.deal.art depicting the Battalion of the Dead as they're my new favourite gang.⁠ ☠️⁠ The ebook is available to buy now but standard hardback publication has been pushed back for the foreseeable future.⁠ ☠️⁠ #bookstagram #books #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #igreads #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #dangerousremedy #katdunn #katalicedunn #battalionofthedead #illumicrateapr2020

β€œI trust you as if my soul were yours.” ⁠ πŸ’¨β  One of my new favourite series is the WITCHLANDS series by @stdennard. It's an amazing YA fantasy with richly detailed world-building, complex characters, and a perfectly plotted narrative. The title of the latest book has just been revealed and I can't wait to read WITCHSHADOW next year.⁠ πŸ’¨β  These beautiful bookmarks were designed by @merwildandco and were included in the April @illumicrate box.⁠ πŸ’¨β  #bookstagram #books #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #igreads #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #witchlands #susandennard #truthwitch #windwitch #sightwitch #bloodwitch #illumicrateapr2020

β€œIt's what you do with time that makes it matter. I'd rather spend a year making new memories than a thousand wandering around in the same old ones.”⁠ ✨⁠ My second new book purchase of the month is THE GIRL AND THE STARS by @mark_lawrence. I loved the Book of the Ancestor trilogy so I'm excited to read a new trilogy set in the same world. I bought this copy from @anderidabooks; it's signed and numbered and even came with a gorgeous print. Who else has this book on their TBR pile?⁠ ✨⁠ #bookstagram #books #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #igreads #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #thegirlandthestars #marklawrence
