Det är populärt med återberättade historier som är mer eller mindre löst baserade på sina original just nu, och vi tänkte tipsa om några av dem!
Vi börjar med Boneless Mercies av April Genevieve Tucholke som är baserad på det klassiska anglosaxiska eposet Beowulf, men i Boneless Mercies möter vi i stället unga kvinnliga krigare.
Boneless Mercies anställs för att döda snabbt, effektivt och skonsamt. Men en av tjejerna drömmer om ett mer nobelt mål och uppdrag än så, så när de hör talas om en ostoppbar best som ödelägger en stad i närheten bestämmer de sig för att gå på jakt. Det erkännande de skulle få om de fällde en sådan best skulle kunna säkra en annan typ av framtid för alla ”Mercies”.
Boken beskrivs som ”a dark standalone YA fantasy about a band of mercenary girls in search of female glory” och finns att låna på biblioteket som tryckt bok på engelska.

O livro começa com Elle contando os segundos para a saída de todas para a escola para que ela possa ver o anúncio de quem será o ator que fará o papel de Carmindor ,o herói da série Starfield que ela assistia com seu pai. Para seu desespero a gêmea má (que tem um vlog de dicas de maquiagem) também quer saber pois corre a boca miúda que Darien será o escolhido ela é super fã do cara. Só que a mãe obriga às irmãs a se arrumarem para ir para as aulas de tênis e Elle finalmente pode correr para ver o anúncio e se desesperar ao constatar que realmente será Darien. Com muita raiva, ela escreve um post gigante em seu blog arrasando com a escolha.
Só que ela descobre também que pode concorrer a ingressos para o baile da ExcelciCon , evento geek que seu pai criou e que ela vê como um passaporte para se livrar da pessimadrasta e conhecer o evento que era o sonho de seu pai. Problema é.....a gêmea má também quer esse prêmio para ter a chance de conhecer Darien...Já viu a confusão ,ne
Nesse meio tempo a gente também conhece o causador de tanto burburinho...Darien Freeman, lindo e maravilhoso ,e descobre que ele não é tão cabeça oca como pensam, ele é sim fã da série e não curte o assédio enlouquecido das fãs. Num acesso de raiva, ele manda uma mensagem para o celular de uma pessoa que ele acha ser da organização do ExcelsiCon dizendo que não poderá participar da tarde de autógrafos. Só que detalhe; o celular que é do finado pai de ele agora está com ela e é ela quem irá responder a mensagem de Darien.....
Gritando aqui ! Tipo muito ! Amooooooo troca de mensagens anônimas que levam a romances.....Hummmmm!
O livro é uma verdadeira releitura do clássico Cinderela com todos os elementos ( a madrasta, as gêmeas, o príncipe, o baile, a fada madrinha, a carruagem e o sapatinho) que fazem desta história algo super romântico com diversas referências ao universo Geek trazendo ainda de plano de fundo as gravações do filme com Darien e o dia-a-dia complicado de Elle. Dividido em três partes baseados na frase de efeito da série ♡
“ Apontar para as estrelas .Mirar. Disparar.”

Qotd: is mental health care good in your country •
I know it's not bookrelated but it's pissing me off how bad it is in my country. You can literally scream you want to die and they won't do anything about it😡
I'm not talking about myself, but someone I know by the way. I don't know if it sounds hypocrite to say so now, but my mental health is fine❤
I just can't understand why a well developed country can't take care of one off the most serious problems a human being can have!
What are your thoughts on it
𝘽𝙤𝙤𝙠 𝙣𝙖𝙢𝙚 : Silas Marner
𝙒𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙚𝙧 : Geroge Eliot
𝙋𝙧𝙞𝙘𝙚 : 40 taka ( From friend's book corner )
𝙂𝙚𝙣𝙧𝙚 : Fiction
𝙎𝙪𝙢𝙢𝙖𝙧𝙮 : Silas Marner, a Catholic young man, who was set to marry his love of life Sara, was convicted for stealing money from a dead padre. He couldn't prove himself right and later he realized that he was betrayed by his friend who married his fiancee. So he left his birthplace and came to ravello and started a small business and cut off every human relation. One night someone stole Marner's money, Marner become devastated again. But his time was coming. One beautiful morning he found a 2 yrs old girl. At once he decided to raise her but the girl was the daughter of an wealthy person whose boy stole Marner's money. Marner named the girl Ap and his world now moves around her. When Ap grew up, that wealthy person Godfrey wanted legal guardianship of her. Ap denied and finally she married an wonderful young lad who loved her and Ap continued to live with Marner.
𝙈𝙮 𝙤𝙥𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙤𝙣 :
Eliot's real name is Mary Anne Evans who was ahead of all writer's of her time. Despite belonging to wealthy family, she used to write the life of lower and middle class family. Silas Marner was one of her best creation. I am truly impressed and thinking of reading her other works.

LIES IN WHITE DRESSES
Good evening #Bookstafam!
Who else is excited for the weekend
Award winning author Sofia Grant weaves an entrancing tale of female friendship and new beginnings inspired by the true stories of those who “took the Reno cure”. In the 1940s and 50s, women who needed a fast divorce went to Nevada to live on a ranch with other women in the same boat. “Sofia Grant entices us into following three women seeking the Reno Cure, as they overcome their disillusionment over the lives they expected to have and summon the bravery to embrace new and unexpected paths.” --Marie Benedict, New York Times bestselling author of The Only Woman in the Room
Francie Meeker and Vi Carothers were sold a bill of goods: find a man, marry him in a white wedding gown, and live happily ever after. These best friends never expected to be on the train to Reno, those “lies in white dresses” shattered, their marriages over.
On board the train they meet June Samples, who is fleeing an abusive husband with her daughter, and take the vulnerable young mother under their wing. The three decide to wait out the required six weeks together, and then they can toss their wedding bands into the Truckee River and start new lives as divorcees.
But as they settle in at the ranch, one shocking moment will change their lives forever. As it brings their deceptions and fears into focus, it will also demand a reckoning with the past, and the choices that a person in love can be driven to make.

Happy Friday!! I’m so glad it’s Friday because it’s pay day and I also got my staff discount card yesterday which means 50% OFF ALL THE BOOKS YAYYYYY. I’ve ordered so many books in to buy today I’m so excited this will be one of my biggest book hauls yet 📚🥰✨
Okay, so it’s ONE WEEK until the release of Royal Blue and I got super nervous when I typed that! So what’s that got to do with Pop Tarts I hear you ask.
Well, I LOVE this flavour of Pop Tarts but you can’t get them here in packs, only singles like this.
I found this pack when I was in Adelaide and bought it. I told myself, when Royal Blue was still just an idea, I’d crack them open once I finished that book. Royal Blue is now done. DONE. Ebooks have been uploaded, ARCs are in the wild, paperbacks have been uploaded and ordered and hopefully here soon!
I can’t believe I’ve done it. I’ve written this myself (duh!), but I’ve organised everything else MYSELF! This was one of the scariest things I’ve ever done but I LOVE this book, these girls, SO much. And yes I know there’s a lot of shouty caps going on here but I don’t care, lol.
So yes, I think this whole thing was worthy of breaking into my coveted Pop Tarts. I have never been so stressed in my life, and I hope to God you all like my girls, please don’t tell me if you don’t!
If you want to grab a copy, it’ll be half price until October 5, then it’ll be going up, so use the link in my bio to secure your copy now!!!

Before the modernist movement in writing, the Progressive Writers’ movement, with most being card holding members of the communist party, ruled the roost.
Azmi, ( Saiyyed Athar Husain ) born to a family of zamindars in the village of Mijwan, in Azamgarh district, became the famed Kaifi Azmi - as a mark of his love and remembrance for his birthplace.
This book is a treasure trove of his protest poetry, but more so is a bouquet of his feminist and romantic poetry- an ode to women across varied stages of rebellion.
Love re-reading it especially when cabbing it- to and fro to work.
Utth meri jaan! Mere saath hii chalna hai tujhe
Tu ke be-jaan khilaunon se bahal jaati hai
Tapti saanson ki haraarat se pighal jaati hai
Paanv jis raah mein rakhti hai phisal jaati hai
Ban ke simaab har ik zarf mein dhal jaati hai
Ziist ke aahani saanche mein bhi dhalnaa hai tujhe
Utth meri jaan! Mere saath hii chalna hai tujhe
May the fountain of pleasurable poetry remain ever youthful!
Kaifiyat - Rakhshanda Jalil

Thank Goodness It’s Friday! 🎉
Have I shouted about We Hunt The Flame recently No Well, here’s me shouting about it because not only is it BEAUTIFUL to look at, it’s also FABULOUSLY well written! Make sure you get your hands on a copy and read it soon!!
📚What books are you always shouting about
qotd: tell me a childhood favorite book/ movie/ series! »»»
For me Narnia was definitely a favorite! I have to admit I didn’t start reading the books until cadre years ago. But even though I only watched the movies as a kid, me and my friends were obsessed! Everyday at school breaks or when we met up at home we would make up this whole Narnia world and everyone got their character and we basically were IN Narnia 😅 Probably sounds silly now, but we had the best time! I also love this edition a lot - it has all the books and beautiful illustrations 🧡
On another note, because I'm curious and it’s a topic close to my heart - how many of you will be able to join the Global Climate Strike today 🌿

Another shot of the adorable Sandy’s books and bakery. I want a chalkboard wall now 😍
I used a refund that I got from a book that arrived damaged to buy this as it was a bit more expensive than I wanted to pay so ended up getting it for only £3! I can’t wait to read it, it just sounds so good and I’m trash for anything involving a rag-tag group of characters!
QOTD: What was your latest bookish bargain
Cynthia’s best friend falls for the school librarian. ‘He’s young. He’s hot. He’s also evil. Cyn senses something is not right and finds herself caught up in a war between various evil factions, with the souls of her schoolmates at stake. Followed by the ‘Revenge of The Evil Librarian’, which has elements of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Glee, this book is both “smart and funny, with just the right touch of evil,” Stephanie Meyer #michelleknudsen #yalit #kmhslibrary #yafictionlover #bookfacefriday
Strange Worlds Cover Reveal Countdown begins!
One week from today, I'll be showing everyone the cover for Strange Worlds! I'm really excited to share it with you, as always, and can't wait to see what you think!
Reposting this magical photo from @princessbecreads ! Are you a fan of Audrey Rose Wadsworth and Thomas Cresswell ! We stan them forever. 😍⠀
"What books are outside your ‘usual’ reading⠀
I’m a YA fantasy reader, and more recently have branched out into YA sci-fi and YA historical fiction. Thanks to a great friend (@acosyreader) I’ve also read a few YA contemporaries- but only the ones she recommends 😂👌🏻⠀
One of the books that made me branch out into historical fiction was this glorious series here. Stalking Jack the Ripper took me completely by surprise and I can’t thank @kerrimaniscalco enough for creating these gorgeous characters. I desperately need a Thomas Cresswell in my life!⠀
Thanks to @hachetteaus @dateabook for this gorgeous copy of Capturing the Devil 😍 I cant wait for my special edition crates to arrive! 😍🙈😱 "⠀
