Greetings! My name is Tamara, a thirty-something year old mama of two little ones. I am an aspiring and engaging (and quickly growing) Bookstagrammer (nerdybookmama) and Photographer. I am a book-addicted nerd who absolutely LOVES YA sci-fi, fantasy and fiction books. I have approximately twelve plus years of photography experience, and have studied graphic design and business administration. Being a busy mom, reading is an escape and moment of self-love when I am able to sink into a beautifully written book. I have found that audiobooks are amazingly life-saving when it comes to getting decent reading in on a daily basis. Even though I am still growing my following, I am excited to work with authors and publishers to bring exposure to books, which I love so deeply.

#qotd – How has your month been? . . Decided to feature my recent @owlcrate exclusive of #HorridBook by @katrinalenobooks, because the title honestly defines most of my September. . Overview: “From the author of You Must Not Miss comes a haunting contemporary horror novel that explores themes of mental illness, rage, and grief, twisted with spine-chilling elements of Stephen King and Agatha Christie.” . . I apologize I have been posting sporadically and been all over the place with my content. September was hard for me. My brother moved out of state, my parents had to relocate, I was assaulted at work, kids started homeschooling again, trying to manage time between day job, my book box and everything else. I usually miss the time frame to take photos when there is enough light. I’ve been super tired. 😔 . . Hoping to get things back to normal soon-ish. . . ✨ Bat & Moon Booksleeve by @ccbooksleeves (NERDY10). . . . #bookstagram #instabook #bookphotography #igbooks #ilovereading #bookhaul #bookhoarder #bookaddiction #bookstoread #whattoread #fortheloveofbooks #bookblogging #bookpics #weekendreads #bookrecs #booknerdproblems #bookpictures #bookstagram #amreading #booksbooksbooks #instablog #booknerds #bookphotos #bibliophile #nerdybookmama #readingismymedicine #bookishlyengaged #horrorbookstagram #owlcrate

Winter by Winter (Sword Girl #1)

Inspired by the nordic tale of Hladgertha (Ladda) and King Ragnar, this story revolves around Ladda’s experience into becoming a shieldmaiden in the midst of war landing on her family Unfortunately, Ladda’s character fell flat and the writing did not convey appropriate emotions or the mentally of a fifteen year old girl. ‘pissing’ on a tree, her needing to ‘piss’, randomly having her period and soaking her clothes, random and unexplained deaths, varied symbolism that made no sense. The way Ladda behaved was not that of a fifteen year old, and her experiences (especially with her love interests) and strength were also not an accurate portrayal of what someone her age would be capable of.

🌸 Do you take your books with you during travel? . . I’m very honored to collaborate with @gastonluga for this post today! I’m featuring their Pärlan Black & Pink backpack. It is a beautiful backpack made in Sweden, with gorgeous details. My favorite aspect is the additional pockets and SPACE! I could fit an entire #faecratebox in it!! . . Alongside this gorgeous backpack, is @faecrate’s exclusive bare cover of @authorcaseybond’s #ThingsThatShouldStayBuried. This book was included in #Faecrate’s August 2020 box! . . ✨ Use NERDMAMA15 for a discount on @gastonluga.

Mirage by Somaiya Daud

Daud’s intricate sci-fi world is reminiscent of Morocco, and she addresses real-world issues of colonialism and loss of culture while giving readers a strong, rebellious protagonist to root for and a steamy romance. The story itself had a beautifully crafted foundation, but I felt the narration might benefit from being stronger with more varied and complex use of words (for example, ‘respite’ was used far too many times in a variety of situations that could have benefited from another term). Some terms, garments, items and building structure details, etc. are deeply inspired by moroccon culture and architecture. The second half of the book is deeply moving, and I truly appreciated a main character that was not inherently dedicated to her love interest, but more interested in her survival, mutual relationships, and being able to help an entire population; while simultaneously rebelling against those who initially hoped to cause her so much harm.

✨ How was your weekend? . Late night post, but I wanted to get back on track a bit. I have had a very difficult couple of months, and I feel awful for falling behind on my rep posts. My rep term for @faecrate has come to an end, and it has been such an absolute honor to have been on their team. Many thanks to @meagan.feyreisa and co. for such a wonderful experience. I am forever thankful for the opportunity. You are all amazing! . . This is the September 2020 #Faecrate, featuring all the items – minus the mask (I have another photoshoot in mind for that 😉). The most epic part of this box was the gold foil sprayed edges of @sweardurham’s #TheBlackstoneRitual. I am a huge nerd for sprayed edges! . . You can use my code NERDY5 to get your own @faecrate 🐼💕 . . . #instablogger #literature #bookstagrammer #booklove #tbr #bookcommunity #bookoftheday #booktography #readersofig #bookreader #bookreviews #bookpassion #booksaremylife #readathon #booksharks #booksphotography #bookgrammer #readersofinstagram #bookreviewblog #ilovebooks #bookworm #readersgonnaread #bookstoread #litdragons #faecrate #faecrateunboxing #faecratemademedoit #faecratebox

#qotd – Have you done self-care while reading? . Happy Sunday everyone! Please check out my new #IGTV unboxing video. . On a rare occasion, I have put on a mask or soak my feet while I’m reading. I think it’s a great combination to relieve stress, and take care of yourself while getting ahead on that infamous #tbrpile. . . I have been a rep for @fairytalebathco for a few months now. I have discovered that I have a deep love for their whipped soaps. I recently received one of their newer products, which is a mineral face mask. I think it’s amazing that they offer so many varied products for book nerds. . Please be sure to check out at @fairytalebathco, and snag a couple of things to take care of yourself. I am a huge advocate for self-pampering, self love, and taking care of yourself by any means possible. . .

✨ B O O K • T O U R ✨ . Today I am featuring the amazing #Roaring by @linzduga! This #indiebook is a gem, with a @goodreads rating of 4.2. . . EXCERPT: “Sin replacing virtue. Lust replacing chastity. And if this made us sinners, I wouldn’t walk through the gates of hell-- I’d run through them.” . SYNOPSIS: “Colt Clemmons is an agent in a specialized division within the Bureau of Investigation—one that hunts down not just mobsters, but also monsters. For reasons that are kept top secret, Colt is the only person who can resist a siren's voice. But he's never had a chance to test this ability. The last siren left in the world mysteriously disappeared years ago. Then one night, with a single word, she reveals herself. It seems too good to be true. And it is. Because nothing about this siren—her past, her powers, or her purpose—is what it seems...” . . Please be sure to snag this book on Amazon! Many thanks to @mlc_tours for the opportunity to feature this lovely indie author and book. ✨ . . . #instablogger #literature #bookstagrammer #booklove #tbr #bookcommunity #bookoftheday #booktography #readersofig #bookreader #bookreviews #bookpassion #booksaremylife #readathon #booksphotography #bookgrammer #readersofinstagram #bookreviewblog #ilovebooks #bookworm #epicreads #readersgonnaread #bookstoread #mlctours #booktour #indiebooks #bookishlyengaged #litdragons

#qotd – Do you collect enamel pins? . . I have been collecting enamel pins for about a year now. I usually get them in my Owlcrates or special edition boxes. Most recently, I discovered an adorable little shop out of Australia. They are called @theenamellibrary! They offer a monthly subscription service of highly detailed and themed pins, with matching stickers! . They ship to the US, and the shipping is crazy fast. I’m honestly surprised how fast it arrives 😳 . . Please visit @theenamellibrary for previews, teasers and updates! . . . #bookstagram #bibliophile #igreads #currentlyreading #bookreview #instaread #lovetoread #booksarelife #readingisfundamental #whatimreading #bookreviewer #bookaddicts #bookpost #tbrpile #justread #bookishphotography #whattoreadnext #readallday #bookworms #booksofinstagram #bookwormproblems #bookaholic #bookpic #newreads #booknerd #bookishlyengaged #nerdybookmama #theenamellibrary #hyggebooks
