As most of you know, #AirAwakensApril was an Instagram challenge held throughout April to celebrate the release of Water’s Wrath and the Air Awakens series in general. I was so honored, because it was put together by some amazing readers: @Library_Luv came to me with the idea, and @BooksandLadders had a huge hand in making it all happen with organization and prompt creation. I can’t thank them enough, and have already sung their (well deserving) praises multiple times so just be sure to give them some thanks to quiet me about it 😉
As the instagram challenge has officially ended I’m going to highlight some of my favorite pictures from Air Awakens April!
I had some giveaways throughout the month to my favorite pictures. So, firstly, shoutout to the winning images that caught my eye for the giveaways!
Day 4 of #AirAwakensApril is FAVOURITE BOOK + TEA. Today I decided to show my love of Japan (and tea)! I am a huge Hayao Miyazaki fan and I was lucky enough to visit Japan in 2014. So today I give you the wonderfully crafted masterpiece by Miyazaki called Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. Literally you’ll get swept away into the story and the art is amazing. Lots of tea will see you through reading all 7 volumes! I bought the tea-cup when I was in Japan. It features characters from Miyazaki’s Spirited Away. @dani_reviews @booksandladders @library.luv @Elise.Kova #Japan #kawaii #AirAwakensApril #tea #Miyazaki #Nausicaa #manga #reading #2016 #instagramchallenge
I’m a few days late on this! I was traveling – sorry all! Since I was late I thought I’d have TWO giveaways to make up for it. • On days throughout #AirAwakensApril I’m giving away swag to my favorite photos in the hashtag. I love the fact that @mugglemythology made her own swag, I love crafts and that’s so cool! • @mugglemythology will get an Air Awakens swag pack, a signed paperback of her choosing, and a pair of silver wing earrings. • @mugglemythology – send me a message with your address and what paperback you’d like to get your prize! ✨📚✨ #instagramchallenge #photochallenge #aprilphotochallenge #aprilinstagramchallenge #photocontest #photoaday #giveaway #book #books #bookish #booklife #booklove #booklover #booklovers #bibilophile #amreading #fantasybook #bookstagram
Alright so since yesterday’s challenge was technically the whole reason we have #airawakensapril I wanted to do it right! So here is my selfie with Water’s Wrath. I also wanted to say hi to all of the new people that have followed recently, so HI! • • Day 26 of #airawakensapril | #waterswrathselfie • • • #books #bookish #booknerd #bookworm #booklover #bookcover #bookstagram #waterswrath #earthsend #firefalling #airawakens #selfie #elisekova

HAPPY RELEASE DAY TO #WATERSWRATH!!! I’m combining the last three days of #AirAwakensApril: favourite prince (Aldrik, obvs), multiple copies (at least 2 of each) and a selfie with WW. Thank you to the boyfriend for risking his life to take this photo. Also thank you to @elise.kova for writing this series!!! And for my signed hardcovers! 😘😘😘❤️

Day 17 of #airawakensapril. The theme today is “worst cliffhanger” and as Elise seems to be the queen of cliffhangers, I naturally had to include the two books that tormented me with the way it ended- #firefalling and #earthsend of the #airawakens series seriously gave me so much grief. But at least #elisekova publishes her books with less time in between than is typical. 😰 Another book with a cliffhanger that had me going SERIOUSLY?? #glasssword by #victoriaaveyard -that ending… And we have to wait until next year? Cliffhangers will be the death of me (at least they feel like they are). There should be warning signs included. #reading #book #books #bookish #bookcover #bookstagram #handlettered #handlettering #typography
