⭐️ Five Star Cocktail ⭐️ #ICYMI: Demon Copperhead is my latest five star read! It was perfect and painful and tender and honest. I just loved it all. You can scroll back to find my review post if you want to know more about this beautiful book! To show my admiration, I’ve paired it with one of my most-loved cold weather drinks, Austin’s Old Fashioned. Austin set on a mission to replicate the Old Fashioned from one of our favorite Fort Worth bars. After many attempts, he finally found the ratios he was looking for. It’s my favorite choice to cozy up with on a cold night! Austin’s Old Fashioned: 2 oz Kentucky Straight Bourbon (we often use Buffalo Trace or Old Forester) ½ oz simple syrup 3 drops of Angostura bitters Orange peel Luxardo cherry For full review and recipe directions, head to thebookcasebeauty.com/demon-copperhead The Old Fashioned is traditionally served at room temperature, which is why you want to use a quality bourbon. If you prefer yours chilled, add 1-2 ice cubes after preparing the drink. I hope you love Demon Copperhead as much as I did! Read it, make a drink, and send me a cheers! I’d love to hear your thoughts on all of the above! #bookcasebeautybookclub #bookstagram #bookshelf #bookclub #bookworm #bookblog #books #tbr #bookstack #bookcase #booknerd #goodreads #homelibrary #readwithjenna #reesesbookclub #bookofthemonth #oprahsbookclub #mybookfeatures #library #reading #mustread #bookmail #bookstoread #cocktail #cocktailrecipe #cocktails #cocktailgram #cocktailhour #oldfashioned

I remember the first time I had Segafredo Zanetti® espresso. I was in a cafe in Aruba in 2016 and it was profoundly different from any coffee I’d had in my life. #SegafredoPartner It was so memorable to me that I went to the barista counter and inquired about the brand!! I soon learned that its quality is unparalleled. It’s the staple brand for many cafes in Europe and, as I continued to learn through years of travel, the Caribbean. I could not contain my excitement when I was invited to partner with Segafredo Zanetti® on their newly released espresso capsules! The outstanding coffee I look forward to when traveling is now available and accessible to me daily! To celebrate, I’m sharing one of my favorite cocktail recipes: THE ESPRESSO MARTINI This recipe is beautifully flavored and so easy to make or scale up to batch! The portions couldn’t be easier! Think 1:1:1 Ingredients: 1 part Segafredo Zanetti® espresso - it’s important to use a dark roast for this martini! I used the Forte blend, an extra-dark level 12 intensity 1 part coffee liqueur 1 part vodka Directions: Brew your Segafredo Zanetti® Espresso capsule in your Nespresso® Original machine Fill a cocktail shaker with ice Pour equal parts espresso, coffee liqueur, and vodka Shake vigorously at least 20 times - you want to be sure to create that signature froth on top! Pour into a martini glass and dress with the traditional three coffee beans Cheers! This is a fan favorite at book clubs and holiday gatherings! It’s also the perfect compliment to a quiet night in with a book! Have you experienced the absolute joy that comes from a cup of Segafredo?! There is literally no stopping me now that I have these capsules for daily use! Follow @segafredozanettiusa to see what they have to offer. #SegafredoMoment #SegafredoZanetti #espressomartini #nespresso #coffee #coffeetime

UP was one of the last Disney movies I experienced as a “kid.” I was a teenager, soon going off to college, and I remember this movie hitting me all the way to my core. Gosh, so many big themes and life lessons. I watched it over and over and over again. One of the most brilliant realizations to me was this song. There’s only one song throughout the entire movie, but depending on how it was played evoked a different emotion. What a metaphor for life… you may feel like you’re living the same day most days, but within those days are little moments that bring pep and joy or gloom and defeat. Most recently I likened this song to Taylor Swift’s Midnights album, when Austin said, “these all kind of sound the same.” Yeah, they kind of do, but each song is bringing out a different emotion. Whatever mood, moment, triumph, fear you’re in, remember that the tempo is ever changing. How lucky are we to experience a life that strikes emotion 🤍 What are you thankful for today? #disney #up #pixar #bookshelf #bookcase #myhome #homedecor #bookclub #bookworm #bookblog #blogger #lifestyleblog #homeblog #tbr #bookcasebeautybookclub #timelapse #shelfie #library #read #bookofthemonth #oprahsbookclub #gmabookclub #readwithjenna #reesesbookclub #homestyle #taylorswift #swiftie #swifties #taylornation

THE MATZAH BALL ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ AHHH my first holiday read of the season!! 🤩 I had planned on reading #TheMatzahBall last December, but it never made it off of the TBR shelf. I’ve stared at it for almost a year, patiently waiting for it to feel like the right time again. When the #BookcaseBeautyBacklistClub voted to focus on cozy books that give us the warm fuzzies, I ran for this book! It was precious and fun and had me giggling on more than one occasion. You will undoubtedly want a contemporary romance novel this holiday season. This one is the perfect light, sugar cookie romance tastefully balanced with heavier topics like chronic illness and difficult family dynamics. Grab a copy and enjoy! What was your favorite holiday read last year?! Synopsis: Oy! to the world Rachel Rubenstein-Goldblatt is a nice Jewish girl with a shameful secret: she loves Christmas. For a decade she’s hidden her career as a Christmas romance novelist from her family. Her talent has made her a bestseller even as her chronic illness has always kept the kind of love she writes about out of reach. But when her diversity-conscious publisher insists she write a Hanukkah romance, her well of inspiration suddenly runs dry. Hanukkah’s not magical. It’s not merry. It’s not Christmas. Desperate not to lose her contract, Rachel’s determined to find her muse at the Matzah Ball, a Jewish music celebration on the last night of Hanukkah, even if it means working with her summer camp archenemy—Jacob Greenberg. Though Rachel and Jacob haven’t seen each other since they were kids, their grudge still glows brighter than a menorah. But as they spend more time together, Rachel finds herself drawn to Hanukkah—and Jacob—in a way she never expected. Maybe this holiday of lights will be the spark she needed to set her heart ablaze. #holidayreads #christmas #christmasreads #hanukkareads #hanukkah #backlist #tbr #bookstoread #bookclub #booknerd #winterreads #mustread #TBR #bookcase #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #homelibrary #myhome #homedecor #holidays #holidayseason #reading #books #review #holidayseason

Last month, The #BookcaseBeautyBacklistClub focused on COVER LOVE! Books with beautiful covers that have been stuck in our TBR! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I set out with a goal to read #FruitOfTheDrunkenTree by Ingrid Rojas Contreras! It’s gorgeous! I vividly remember scrolling @pangobooks one day and freezing when I saw the cover. Once I read the description, I added to cart with record speed. But then, it sat… and sat… I wasn’t prioritizing it over new releases, even though I desperately wanted to read it. I finally had the push this month to read it with the club and I’m so glad I did! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I flew through that book so quickly that I decided to make a month of it and read a backlist Katherine Center book! #HappinessForBeginners has been on my TBR for so long!!! It was adorable and a fantastic representation of sweetness balanced with heavier topics. She writes with such grace! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I even got around to reading a decade-old book from Simone St. James- #TheHauntingOfMaddyClare! This book was originally published in 2012. I love St, James’ stories! She can craft a ghost story like no one else! This new cover design finally sold me on picking up this backlist title and it did not disappoint! For more insights and reflections on each of these books, head to thebookcasebeauty.com/october-books Have you read any of these books?! I’d love to hear your thoughts! If you struggle to prioritize backlist books over the newest, buzziest books, you’re not alone! We have a club! We’re focusing on warm cozy books in November! Come read through your TBR with us! The group has just enough support and accountability to keep you on track, without feeling like your feet are to the fire.
