Since November 2017 – when I created an Instagram for Saturday Nite Reader –  I have posted 325 book photos! I am not a photography expert but try to capture the essence: “books are home decor.” 😉

Here are a few of my favorites, new and old:

Crazy Rich Asians by @kevinkwanbooks ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 💎 This was a super fun read! It was like I was reading a soap opera versus watching one; with a plethora of characters who were just what the book described: crazy! Overbearing, meddling and judgy moms whose circles run the same. 💎 My goodness the things some of these characters do just because of what everyone thinks, not what they want. You kind of feel bad for them, but at the same time lack empathy for them – as they are super rich – and would trade places with them any day. 💎 The book starts off with Rachel Chu and Nick Young planning to spend the summer with Nick's family in Asia. What Rachel doesn't know is that Nick is actually an heir to a massive fortune and his family is very, very rich. Nick does not prepare Rachel for what she is about to endure (think Mean Girls, but more ruthless). 💎 But, its not just about their love story. There are so many families that at first I was so confused, but there is a family tree before the book starts that I found myself turning to a few times to figure out how all these people were related. You will get the hang of it at some point. 💎 Note: There were a lot of footnotes in the beginning (translating slang or providing definitions) that I got a bit distracted. I appreciated them, but it slowed me down in the beginning. Once I got the hang of them the book moved quickly. 💎 CRA is the 1st book in a series of 3. I loved what they did with the paperback covers that I wound up buying another copy of CRA (I originally had the hardcover) so I could have the complete uniform set (my books need to match, I know that is weird but whatever). 💎 BOOK TO MOVIE ALERT: CRA is out August 15th of this year, featuring Hollywood's first all Asian cast in 25 years! . . #saturdaynitereader #igreads #recommendedread #epicreads #reader #readersofinstagram #bookcover #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #ilovebooks #bibliophile #bookworm #bookphotography #mybookfeatures #crazyrichasians #kevinkwan #booktomovie #fiction #summerreading #summerreads

Can we just talk about Girls’ Night Out by @lisaandliz for a hot minute? ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ . Those last three sentences!! Like 😲! Well done ladies! 👏🏻👏🏻 . Three long time friends: three is certainly a crowd. Two always competing for the leader of the pack’s attention, loving and hating her at the same time. Make up your darn mind ladies! Anywho, the leader goes missing after getting into two separate major blows with the others. No one remembers what happens after she left the bar (I hear T-Pain singing “Blame it on the Alcohol”), will they find her before time runs out? Does she want to be found? When found, will she be dead or alive? So many questions – go read it to find the answers. . . A special thank you to the authors for hosting an awesome book tour stop at @superfinedumbo & @powerhousebooks this evening, and taking us the behind the scenes of the making of Girls’ Night Out. . #saturdaynitereader #igreads #reader #summerreads #summerreading #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookblogger #bookreview #bibliophile #bookclubpick #booktour #girlsnightout #lakeunion #suspense #thriller #bestfriends #margaritas #tequilashots #mybookfeatures

Spent the last week of December just 😴 and enjoying being lazy (when I wasn’t 🚘 across NJ, NY, CT, MA and RI…who wouldn’t need a nap after that?!) . Not much 📖 going on but I did see Mary Poppins Returns and it was lovely! So when I was at @bsb_savoy in Westerly I had to buy the original book by P.L. Travers for my collection. I just love this edition from @hmhbooks illustrated by @juliasardaportabella . When I took this pic I thought of Mary going up the banister, umbrella in hand 😉 . ❓Have you seen Mary Poppins Returns?! What did you think?! . . #saturdaynitereader ##bookcollection reader #igreads #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #booksofig #bookphotography #bookphotoop #bookcover #bibliophile #bookworm #childhoodreads #disneycharacters #booktomovie #marypoppins #childrensbook #disney
