Hi guys! Happy Monday! As I have mentioned before I am a rep for Drawn to the Pages an etsy shop specializing in watercolored design. She started out with gorgeous watercolored bookmarks, but now she is also selling amazingly beautiful mugs, coasters, keychains, Game of Thrones inspired dragon eggs and we are expecting new surprise products in this months rep package! She has really branched out from just starting a few months ago!
I’m so excited to show you some of her newest products! First are the mugs, that I adore! This first one is a design thats a little tricky for photographing but I still love it! It says Book Nerd and curves around the side of the mug in a chevron pattern. I have this design in bookmark form, and mug form and still need to get it in coaster form. Love it! The second mug is the Hogwarts school crest done in watercolor. So beautiful! And it matches my deathly hallows bookmark!
Next are the keychains. I just have one right now but I’m eyeing a few more in her shop.
Then there are the coasters which might be my new obsession! I have an Expresso Patronum one, an Angelic Rune one and Hogwarts crest one and I’m eyeing the new Outlander ones she just posted to her shop!
And of course she still has her beautiful watercolored bookmarks!
Thats it for now! I should be getting my next rep package any day now and I can’t wait to share it with you! If you follow me on instagram you can see my unboxing videos and first look at the products! And don’t forget my code TAYLORTAKES15 saves you 15% off your order!

Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her “power” to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes that the dead leave behind in the world… and the imprints that attach to their killers.
Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find the dead birds her cat had tired of playing with. But now that a serial killer has begun terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he’s claimed haunt her daily, she realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.
Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet on her quest to find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved to find herself hoping that Jay’s intentions are much more than friendly. But even as Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer.. she might become his next prey (Goodreads summary)
“I made the wrong choice.”
Lina is spending the summer in Tuscany, but she isn’t in the mood for Italy’s famous sunshine and fairy-tale landscape. She’s only there because it was her mother’s dying wish that she get to know her father. But what kind of father isn’t around for sixteen years? All Lina wants to do is get back home.
But then she is given a journal that her mom had kept when she lived in Italy. Suddenly Lina’s uncovering a magical world of secret romances, art, and hidden bakeries. A world that inspires Lina, along with the ever-so-charming Ren, to follow in her mother’s footsteps and unearth a secret that has been kept for far too long. It’s a secret that will change everything she knew about her mother, her father—and even herself.
People come to Italy for love and gelato, someone tells her, but sometimes they discover much more. (Goodreads Summary)

Fate and fortune. Power and passion. What does it take to be the queen of a kingdom when you’re only seventeen?
Maya is cursed. With a horoscope that promises a marriage of death and destruction, she has earned only the scorn and fear of her father’s kingdom. Content to follow more scholarly pursuits, her whole world is torn apart when her father, the Raja, arranges a wedding of political convenience to quell outside rebellions. Soon Maya becomes the queen of Akaran and wife of Amar. Neither roles are what she expected: As Akaran’s queen, she finds her voice and power. As Amar’s wife, she finds something else entirely: Compassion. Protection. Desire…
But Akaran has its own secrets—thousands of locked doors, gardens of glass, and a tree that bears memories instead of fruit. Soon, Maya suspects her life is in danger. Yet who, besides her husband, can she trust? With the fate of the human and Otherworldly realms hanging in the balance, Maya must unravel an ancient mystery that spans reincarnated lives to save those she loves the most…including herself.

Happy Monday book lovers! I received a ton of awesome book deals in my inbox this morning to share with you. I have read all of these and loved them! I just found out that The Girl With All The Gifts movie I’ve been trying to get my hands on is on Amazon Prime, I know what my night is looking like!
Last weekend I had the opportunity to meet Jennifer A. Nielsen, the author of The Ascendance Trilogy, The Mark of The Thief series and A Night Divided. She was a part of the Scholastics Summer Road Trip that stopped in Oklahoma. Jennifer was super nice and even gave Husband some book recommendations!
I read and loved The Ascendance Trilogy. Sage was a fun character and the story and the world were great. I haven’t read The Mark of the Thief yet, its been on my TBR for awhile but now I have a signed copy to read whenever I get some spare time! Maybe after we get through all of the house buying/moving nonsense.
In a discontent kingdom, civil war is brewing. To unify the divided people, Conner, a nobleman of the court, devises a cunning plan to find an impersonator of the king’s long-lost son and install him as a puppet prince. Four orphans are recruited to compete for the role, including a defiant boy named Sage. Sage knows that Conner’s motives are more than questionable, yet his life balances on a sword’s point—he must be chosen to play the prince or he will certainly be killed. But Sage’s rivals have their own agendas as well.
As Sage moves from a rundown orphanage to Conner’s sumptuous palace, layer upon layer of treachery and deceit unfold, until finally, a truth is revealed that, in the end, may very well prove more dangerous than all of the lies taken together. (goodreads summary)
When Nic, a slave in the mines outside of Rome, is forced to enter a sealed cavern containing the lost treasures of Julius Caesar, he finds much more than gold and gemstones: He discovers an ancient bulla, an amulet that belonged to the great Caesar and is filled with a magic once reserved for the Gods — magic some Romans would kill for.
Now, with the deadly power of the bulla pulsing through his veins, Nic is determined to become free. But instead, he finds himself at the center of a ruthless conspiracy to overthrow the emperor and spark the Praetor War, a battle to destroy Rome from within. Traitors and spies lurk at every turn, each more desperate than the next to use Nic’s newfound powers for their own dark purposes.
In a quest to stop the rebellion, save Rome, and secure his own freedom, Nic must harness the magic within himself and defeat the empire’s most powerful and savage leaders.(goodreads summary).
