《 "Frederic d’Estang: performer, professional villain and my youthful crush.
•
Graduate student Evie Bell spends her days ghostwriting memoirs and her nights playing out her most intimate sexual fantasies by penning fan fiction. When a famous stage actor bursts into her life, she’s drawn to his dark, sensual presence, despite herself.
•
He calls me chérie, ma princesse, minette.
•
In Paris, Frederic takes Evie firmly in hand, leading her down a sensual path neither of them could have imagined, and pushing them both dangerously near their limits.
•
I call him Daddy.
•
Evie is wary— fearing Frederic is a villain both onstage and off— but again and again, Frederic draws her in. Yet the closer they become, the more Frederic holds back, wanting to protect Evie from his despicable truth. He isn’t the man she believes him to be, and his secret may very well destroy them." ―Brianna Hale, Soft Limits. 》

《 "Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter's night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away. But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. And when he dismissed her again, the old woman's ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress. The prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart. And as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast and placed a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there. Ashamed of his monstrous form, the beast concealed himself inside his castle, with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his 21st year. If he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, he fell into despair and lost all hope. For who could ever learn to love a beast?" ―Beauty and the Beast. 》

♡ #greekaddictdiarieschallenge day 14, books and blooms: featuring the tale of Beauty and the Beast, and my gold rose---I felt so magical when it was given to me, and it had reminded me so much of the beast's rose.

《 "It’s been such a grueling twenty-four hours, the sun is already up and we haven’t even gone to bed yet. I shut the blinds and curtains, then crawl back into bed and throw a pillow over my eyes. As soon as I begin to welcome sleep, I feel Holder crawl into bed behind me. He slides one arm under my pillow and one over my side. I can feel his warm chest pressed against my back and the strength of his arms around me. He slides his hands through mine and kisses me lightly on the back of the head.
•
“I live you,” I whisper to him.
•
He kisses my head again and sighs into my hair. “I don’t think I live you back anymore. I’m pretty sure I’ve moved beyond that. Actually, I’m positive I’ve moved beyond that, but I’m still not ready to say it to you. When I say it, I want it to be separate from this day. I don’t want you to remember it like this.”
•
I pull his hand to my mouth and kiss it softly. “Me, too.”
•
And once again in my new world full of heartache and lies, this hopeless boy somehow finds a way to make me smile. ―@colleenhoover, Hopeless. 》

《 "I love you all. But it's time to say good-bye, for now. Be careful with the world, or the next time we meet, it might get ugly." ―Scott Westerfeld, Specials (Uglies, #3) 》
🌹
♡ #greekaddictdiarieschallenge day 8, sci-fi: featuring my paperback of Specials by Scott Westerfeld.
•
The third novel in the Uglies series begins two months after events in Pretties, when Tally Youngblood has become a member of an elite group of "Specials" - surgically enhanced super-humans - called the Cutters.
•
The Cutters were founded by Shay, who invented the use of ritual self-harm to become "bubbly" and clear-headed in spite of brain lesions used to make her pretty-minded.
•
♡ #qotd: Since this series is all about the enhancement of the human body, I wonder what it is you would change about yourself---knowing there would be a consequence?

《 "My heart rate accelerated and warmth raced through my veins, ending in a rush of wetness between my legs. But, still, I held back. He had done this before and then he'd pushed me away. Please don't push me away this time.
•
"Kiss me back, Tenleigh," he whispered, his voice strained. "God, please kiss me back." He brushed his lips softly over mine again.
•
And that was all I needed.
•
I wrapped my arms around his neck and tilted my head, our eyes meeting once before he pressed his body into mine and gripped my face in his hands. His tongue ran along the crease of my lips and I opened immediately, a moan coming up my throat at the taste of him. He was all boy and mountain air and my body pressed upward into his, wanting to accept anything and everything he was offering.
•
Our tongues met and tangled and then he was moaning, too, sweeping his tongue as deeply into my mouth as he could. My body was tingly and alive and I felt his kiss all the way down to my toes.
•
The world faded out around me, the cold disappeared. It was only him and his hot, wet mouth on mine—in mine—and the taste of him, the weight of his hard body pressed into my own.
•
"Kyland, Kyland," I moaned out shamelessly when his mouth came off mine and his hot breath was suddenly at my throat. I arched my head backward into the snow as his lips feathered up the tender skin of my neck. And that shot more sparks between my legs, my nipples pebbling almost painfully under the layers of my clothes. "I need . . . oh God . . ." Everything. I needed everything." ―Mia Sheridan, Kyland. 》

《 "Wars fought over a face like this," he murmured like he was talking to himself, my heart stopped beating and his thumbs moved lightly across my cheeks. "A man would work himself into the ground for it, go down to his knees to beg to keep it, endure torture to protect it, take a bullet for it," his eyes came to mine, "poison his brother to possess a face like this."―Kristen Ashley, Knight (Unfinished Hero, #1) 》

♡ #greekaddictdiarieschallenge day 2, TBR: To be honest, I haven't planned any books to read this September. This year, I find myself just rereading a lot of my favorite books from the past, and also listen to some of their audiobooks.
•
Right now, I'm #currentlyreading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets...as well as listening to the audiobook of Knight by Kristen Ashley.
•
♡ #qotd: Sometimes, I can only read/listen to one book at a time, but lately I find myself reading two or so books at a time. What about you? Do you read more than one book at a time?

♡ #greekaddictdiarieschallenge day 1, back to Hogwarts: This is literally the perfect challenge to say hello to September---as I just finished rereading #HP1 yesterday, and have already started on #HP2 today.
•
It's been quite a rainy day, which is bliss because it's been such a hot summer. I'm SO READY for autumn to come already. What about you?
•
♡ #qotd: Speaking of the season change, does your book preferences chance with the weather? I know some people prefer lighter reads during the summer and darker, more intense reads during the autumn months.

♡ #gettoknowmetag:
❤ Favorite genre: romance. Obviously.
😶 Jenny Han or Stephanie Perkins: umm...haven't read either of those authors.
😎 Favorite summer read: depends on my mood tbh.
😊 Favorite setting: again, depends on my mood.
😁 Most relatable character: I feel like I know the perfect answer to this question, but it's on the tip of my tongue...
😝 Bad boy or funny guy: I feel like I'm going to bore you when I say it again, but...I like both, so it depends on my mood.
😍 Must read: for me? Anything by Alexa Riley. Or as @a.reading.gem knows---anything with hot men.
💋 Kiss, marry, kill: WHY DO YOU MAKE ME CHOOSE JUST THREE? IMPOSSIBLE.

🌹
♡ #grimdragon day 27, coming-of-age stories: featuring Hothouse Flower by Krista & Becca Ritchie because in a lot of wats, throughout this book, Daisy grew up into the person she wanted to be, not who she was pressured into being. For that, I've alwayd admired her courage to be who she is---crazy Daisy and all.
•
PS: This book, Hothouse Flower, is on sale right now for .99 cents...which rarely EVER happens. So if you have been interested in reading the Calloway Sisters series (which I highly recommend!) now is the chance to get this book super cheap. #yourewelcome

I'll be meeting up with family for some breakfast before heading to work. Guess there's no rest for the wicked. I've never been to the breakfast place we're trying this morning but perhaps they'll have some yummy pancakes *my favorite*.
•
The featured pancakes are flavored double caramel, and I know I know I almost burned them. 😂 I blame it on the book I was reading---too caught up in the story, I forgot that I was cooking.
•
♡ #qotd: Have you ever burned something you were cooking because you were too preoccupied with reading? 🙈 Please tell me I'm not alone.

♡ #bookishwouldyourather:
📕1) Only reads paperbacks or hardcovers? Either. I don't really have a preference. If it's a book, I'll read it.
📚2) Only read new books or re-read the same 25 books? Ohhhh, dang. That's difficult, especially since I feel like this year is my "year of the re-reads" where I find myself re-reading a lot of my old favorites. But I suppose I would choose to only read new books because well...*shrugs*
📗3) Only buy your own books or rent books from the library? Rent from the library, because I'm cheap af.
📔4) Have all your book covers be movie tie-ins or have all the covers the same? See #1.
📖5) Be a character from GoT or LOTR? GoT, but of course.
📘6) Only ever read books with 500+ pages or under 100? Honestly, I'd rather under 100 pages per book. I guess I prefer shorter than longer. *whispers* I get bored easy. Just gimme my HEA.

《 "Everyone in the world was programmed by the place they were born, hemmed in by their beliefs, but you had to at least try to grow your own brain." ―Scott Westerfeld, Pretties 》
🌹
♡ #alliwantforaugustisabook day 22, reverse flash (futuristic read): Pretties by Scott Westerfeld is the second book in the Uglies trilogy. It's one of the most unique science fiction, reads.
•
The Uglies trilogy is set in a future dystopian world in which everyone is turned "pretty" by extreme cosmetic surgery upon reaching the age of 16.
•
It tells the story of teenager Tally Youngblood who rebels against society's enforced conformity, after her newfound friends Shay and David show her the downsides to becoming a "pretty".
•
♡ #qotd: If you were in this futuristic world, would you choose to be turned "pretty"? I'd like to think I wouldn't, but living in a world where perfection is demanded, I wonder if I would have the guts to rebel against conformity.
