Week(end) Aesthetic: A Thousand Splendid Suns + a New Blog Header!

It is most certainly not the weekend on this dark Monday evening, but I’m just a tinyyy bit late from my posting schedule. So how about we jump into the mindset of a Saturday 4pm for awhile? I wouldn’t mind that actually 😁

Today is a very exciting day because I get to show you my new blog header! A couple days ago I happened to win Kat @ Novels and Waffles’ blog header competition on twitter. Kat is not only a great blogger with some really cool posts, she is also an amazingly talented graphic designer! I couldn’t have won a better competition!

My new header should be live now, and it is absolutely gorgeous! Kat did such a great job. Isn’t it amazing!!

On to the weekend aesthetic!

The weekend aesthetic is inspired by the lovely Jordan @ the Heart of a Book Blogger who does these features every week

This week I decided to feature A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini that I finished this morning. It was an emotional book, but sadly not quite as emotional as I was expecting 🤔 Or maybe I have morphed into a feeling-less rock.

A Curse so Dark and Lonely: Review & Aesthetic

A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

43204703

I received a free e-arc in exchange for an honest review, thank you for the publisher, author and Netgalley! Receiving a free copy has in no way affected my opinions.

Goodreads link

Prince Rhen always taught that it would be easy to break the curse a powerful enchantress placed upon him. Simply find a girl who falls in love with him to break the spell of the autumn of his eighteenth year repeating over and over again. But that was before he knew that at the end of each fall he would turn into a vicious beast and destroy the castle and kill his own family.

After years and years, Harper is his only hope. Harper, who has learned that you have to be tough to survive with her mother slowly dying of cancer and her brother mixed up in dangerous affairs. Harper, who has been constantly underestimated because of her cerebral palsy but is in fact, strong and capable not in spite of her CP, but in addition to it.

Weekend Aesthetic: Vita Nostra by Marina & Sergey Dyachenko

Weekend Aesthetic is a bi-weekly post that was inspired by Jordan @ The Heart of a Book Blogger‘s weekly weekend aesthetic feature. Every other weekend I post an aesthetic/mood board for a book I’m reading or have recently read to show what kinds of vibes the book gave to me.

I missed an aesthetic last week (OOPS) but this weekend I’m back at it!

Check out Jordan @ The Heart of a Book Blogger’s last weekend’s aesthetic on Anne of the Green Gables. It perfectly captures its mood!

This week I’m featuring Vita Nostra by Marina & Sergey Dyachenko which I recently read and became obsessed with! It is a dark fantasy about an odd, magical school.

Weekend Aesthetic: Truthwitch

It’s time for my bi-weekly weekend aesthetic!

This post is inspired by Jordan @ The Heart of a Book Blogger’s Weekend Aesthetic posts. This week she featured Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. Her aesthetic is gorgeous, go check it out!

A week ago I finished listening to the audiobook of Truthwitch by Susan Dennard, and I felt like this book demands an aesthetic. It is a story about two best friends, more like sisters, who get entangled into a bunch of politics because of their magical abilities. I really enjoyed it and I’m looking forward to picking up the second book sometime soon.

Weekend Aesthetic: A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G Drews

Weekend Aesthetic is a feature that I saw in The Heart of a Book Blogger’s blog and fell in love with! The idea is to make an aesthetic/mood board for a book that you have read or are currently reading. I’m hoping to do Weekend Aesthetics bi-weekly 😊

I love aesthetics because everyone makes them totally different when describing the same book! I think they are an excellent way of giving book recommendations, sometimes I just want to find a book that gives me a certain mood.

This week Jordan @ The Heart of a Book Blogger featured a book called Now a Major Motion Picture in her Weekend Aesthetic, go check it out!

I decided to feature a book I read recently and absolutely loved. I’m talking about A Thousand Perfect Notes by C. G. Drews (also known as Paperfury in her amazing bookblog, Instagram and Twitter). This book was unputdownable and made me into a big human mess. In a good way of course.

Weekend Aesthetic: Strange the Dreamer

Yay today I have something brand new to share with you: A Weekend Aesthetic!

The wonderful Jordan @ The Heart of a Book Blogger has been doing Weekend Aesthetics for some time now, and I have loved every single one of her posts. I had a go at doing an aesthetic board for a book when I reviewed State of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury, and I fell in love with doing them!

Jordan said that she wouldn’t mind if I started doing Weekend Aesthetics as well, so here we are ☺️ See Jordan’s this week’s gorgeous Weekend Aesthetic here!

I’m hoping to do Weekend Aesthetics bi-weekly, and every aesthetic board will feature a book I’m currently reading or a book I have read previously. This week I made an aesthetic board of Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor.
