How many books have you read in 2019? The year is drawing to a close and looking back I have read less than anticipated. For some reason that always seems to happen. But, thankfully, that was because of lack of time this year and not a reading slump. And these past few days I got to read a lot too, so that's a plus. I am currently 1/3 into THE WAY OF KINGS by Brandon Sanderson and gosh, it is soooo good. I just love high fantasy! I get a feeling it will be a 5/5 stars read. Anyway, what are your weekend plans, guys? Anything interesting? . . . #harrypotter #thewitcher #shadowhunters #gameofthrones #hungergames #lordoftherings #potterhead #hogwarts #katniss #geraltofrivia #tolkien #jkrowling #witcher #booknerd #bookobsessed #bookstagram #daenerystargaryen #thehobbit #thelordoftherings #claryfray #cassandraclare #lectura #leitura #booksofinstagram

Caption this photo. Best 3 captions get a shoutout (of their page). (ad) Winter and the holidays are drawing near so, in classic James fashion, I decided to get naked and feel that ocean breeze. Got this amazing canvas print from @redbubble to remind me of summer and warm days in the cold months to come. Seriously though, who would have thought that sitting shirtless on the floor, under a waterfall of imaginary water and half covered by a river of books could be so relaxing? If you want to recreate this pose by getting a print of your own (or other hype stuff I choose: side note – the cat socks I got are sooooo comfortable), just check my Bazaar of Curiosities here: http://rdbl.co/jamestrevino-h19 (link is also in my bio). And, JUST THIS WEEK (till November 30th), you can use code RBC-H19-17-james_trevino TO GET 17% OFF YOUR ENTIRE ORDER. Hope your week is off to a great start, guys. #GiftOriginal . . . #bookobsessed #bookhoarder #bookalicious #bookhaul #lovebooks #mybookfeatures #readingislife #bookartist #bookgram #bookstagramer #book #booknerd #bibliophile #yafantasy #writingcommunity #amwriting #leiamais #livros #lectores #leitores #becreative #postitfortheaesthetic #smallmomentsofcalm
