Hey guys! Sorry if I’ve been a little absent. Our router at home keeps going out and we have to keep fixing it :/ yay for stubborn technology. But today, I wanted to share that I am on Instagram now! I’m under metalphantasmreader ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the book community on IG and the friends I’ve met there. If any of you are on there, let’s be friends on there as well. Here’s a few of my pictures on there:

Who knew books could be so much fun to take pictures of? Whether on a table, against a wall or out in nature, the ways to show off books is endless. I’m not fancy like some of the veteran bookstagramers are, but still so much fun! I hope to see you guys there ๐Ÿ™‚

Fun Book Mail Surprise

So this past Saturday, my husband and I were leaving with our dog to go on a hike. I thought I would check the mail before we left and behold, a package for me! I had no idea what it was until I saw them and then I started wondering “Why did this person send me this?” So I opened it and it was…

A hard cover copy ofย Pacificaย from the author herself! It came with a book card, goregeous book mark and it’s SIGNED!

My husband was surprised and asked me how I got this sent to me. I’m guessing I had won it through a giveaway. But other way, I freaked out when I saw all that the author sent to me. I talked about it on Twitter and IG just the other day as well. The fact that it’s signed was amazing ๐Ÿ™‚ If it was through a giveaway, then lucky me! (Even though I didn’t get notified of winning anything) But a huge thank you to Kristen Simmons for making my day. This shot up to my TBR highest pedestal! (Once I finish an ARC that is…)

But yeah that’s what I wanted to share with you guys today! Hope you have a great day and week ๐Ÿ™‚ Be back on Friday!

What book mail have you gotten? Was there a surprise book thing you got one day and if so, what was it? What IG tips do you have for making great bookstagram pictures as well?
