bookcon2018

When you order a book on Amazon but then you feel guilty so you check for a nearby bookstore whilst apartment hunting and buy it there too (for $10 more). 🤭 but always #shoplocal . Hopefully Amazon fulfills my cancel request but if not... My Year of Rest and Relaxation giveaway??? 🤷🏻‍♀️

When I published AMAZING TESTIMONIES I was concerned about the age range of the people interested in reading it. I am happy to say that it speaks to all ethnicities and ages fifteen and up. Thank you @td.f_ for not only starting a fan page for me @crowntrisha and @thegrants621 but thank you for getting my book, reading it and sharing the inspiration. Taylor, even though we haven’t met in person yet, I’ve got bunches of love for you.🤗❤️🤗❤️ ********************************************************* #trishamanngrant #author #amazingtestimoniesthebook #amazingtestimonies #bookcon2018 #authorsofinstagram #readersofinstagram #readers #taylor #shocking #truestories #life #death #drugs #gangs #carjacking #domesticviolence #prison #businessowners #angels #neardeathexperience #stroke #supernatural #healings #dreams #visions #god #beliefs #faith #❤️

I don’t read contemporary very often, but I picked up this ARC at bookcon so I figured I would give it a chance. It was nice to mix things up a bit after devouring sci-fi after fantasy after sci-fi... 🕶 The Geography of Lost Things by Jessica Brody Synopsis: A lot can happen on the road from lost to found… Ali Collins doesn’t have room in her life for clutter or complications. So when her estranged father passes away and leaves her his only prized possession—a 1968 Firebird convertible—Ali knows she won’t keep it. Not when it reminds her too much of all her father’s unfulfilled promises. And especially not when a buyer three hundred miles up the Pacific coast is offering enough money for the car to save her childhood home from foreclosure. There’s only one problem, though. Ali has no idea how to drive a stick shift. But her ex-boyfriend, Nico, does. The road trip gets off to a horrible start, filled with unexpected detours, roadblocks, and all the uncomfortable tension that comes with being trapped in a car with your ex. But when Nico starts collecting items from the quirky strangers they meet along the way, Ali starts to sense that these objects aren’t random. Somehow they seem to be leading her to an unknown truth about her father. A truth that will finally prove to Ali that some things—even broken things—are worth saving. 🕶 It took me a few chapters to get into it, but overall I enjoyed it. I thought the premise was really interesting and I found myself excited to find out where Ali and Nico’s road trip would take them. The two main focuses of the book are Ali’s relationship with her father and her relationship with Nico. There are flashbacks to moments during both relationships throughout the book that went along beautifully with the literal and emotional journey Ali is experiencing. 🕶 Thank you to @simonteen For this beautiful ARC. It releases October 2, 2018. 🕶 I just have to mention that I am in love with this cover. It shouts summer to me. Do anyone of you have any suggestions for my next contemporary read? 🕶 #thegeographyoflostthings #bookcon2018 #simonteen #jessicabrody #contemporaryya #roadtrip #booknerd #bookworm #bibliophile #mybookfeature

School spirit! This is my daughter and I at BookCon this year. We had so much fun. #bookbattle #bbhogwarts #schoolspirit #hogwarts #harrypotter #jkrowling #bookcon2018 #20yearsofmagic #scholastic

So very lucky to have been able to read #4deadqueens. @clairereadsbooks was lucky to snag this beauty at BookCon and let me read it first. It’s a debut novel from #astridscholte and it’s brilliant! It had the perfect amount of suspense, mystery, kick arse character, a new interesting world - and 4 queens! Definitely buy this when it comes out! #book #books #bookdragon #bookaddict #bookstagram #bookworm #instabook #booklovers #reading #bookish #youngadult #ireadya #underratedbookclub #bibliophile #instabook #bookphoto #trainreads #bookexpo #bookcon2018 #bookcon

The City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty from @harpervoyagerus picked up from @thebookcon. “Someone steals from me, I steal from others, and I’m sure the people I stole from will eventually take something that doesn’t belong to them. It’s a circle,” she added wisely, as she gnawed on the chewy bread.” (Pg. 135). #novelpassages #thecityofbrass #sachakraborty #harpervoyager #bookcon #bookcon2018 #fiction #fantasynovel #hardcover #igreads #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #bookquotes

Forgot to post me at book con! Better late then never I always say. It gives me even more inspiration to one day be as big as all those authors 😍 #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #bookcon2018 #indieauthor #selfpublishedauthor #selfiesaturday

This past week I read Rule by Ellen Goodlett. Blog post to follow! I had the opportunity to grab this book at Bookcon this year. I’m anxiously waiting on Book 2 now. That ending left me on the edge of my seat! #rule #ellengoodlett #therule #bookcon #bookcon2018 #bookstagram #books #book #read #reading #tysonsbookshelf #inkandwonder #inkandwonderdesigns

Usually I buy a book to reward myself for not buying any books, but today I really did deserve it. 🤩 . I went to an Italian bookstore and ALL BY MYSELF (IN ITALIAN!!!) asked if they had a specific book. They didn’t have it, but we ended up having a conversation full of gestures and broken Italian about me working in a bookstore in New York. The gentleman recommended me 2 books (I’ll show them later!) and I had to get them to remember the first time I stepped out of my comfort zone like this. I’m so proud. 🤗 . Also - why are Italian covers automatically SO much cooler than American?

I’m savoring every sip of the morning cappuccino ☕️ . I find even the most mundane things here so charming. I might go to Rome Thursday and if I do I’m actually going to cry. It’s such a dream of mine. But I’m afraid I’ll want to move there 🤭. Who will take care of my books? 😜 . Swipe for an example of a photo I probably got weird looks for taking ➡️

A few months ago, right before I went to Book Con, I ended up in the hospital and “Tony Bear” came to visit me and read a few stories from AMAZING TESTIMONIES to me hoping I would fall asleep. He beat me to the punch😴 **************************************************** . #tonybear #trishamanngrant #author #bookcon #amazingtestimonies #amazingtestimoniesthebook #chapter9 #setback #to #comeup #authorsofinstagram #readersofinstagram #selfpublished #hospital #healed #blessed🙏 #movingforward #bookcon2018
