Replica Bookstagrams 

Hey guys, long time no see! Lil' update maybe? Okay so I'm now at the place, for 5 days already. And it is tough, really really tough. I'm having a really hard time and coping with that isn't really my strategy so I'm just having a really difficult time right now. But being here also means I can barely take book pictures (as I only have 2 with me and the lighting here is terrible) so I can only post old pictures. But I do get to go home this weekend for 1 night and 2 days so maybe I'll try and take a few new pictures then! Also, I'm still #currentlyreading my #reread of #acomaf and #furthermore! Going slow but getting there! ♐ I hope you're all having a good time and read lots! Just enjoy your days with whatever you're doing, as everyone should. ♐ But okay, well, speak to you all later again! And take the best with reading!

As some of you may or may not know, @lauren_oliver_books is coming out with a new book called Replica! I'm so so excited about this, not only because she's one of my favorite authors, but because this is an extremely unique story. I've partnered with @epicreads to be #TeamLyra and tell you a little bit about this special girl. • Lyra is a "replica", a human model locked away in a secret research facility. She escapes with another replica when the institute is attacked, and, while on the run, she meets Gemma, our other narrator. Flip the story over, and you've got Gemma's side of the story. Replica is a "flip book", with two narrating stories interwoven together. You can read one side first and then the other, or you can alternate chapters. It's all up to you! • Pre-order this gorgeous book and tell me how you plan to #ReadReplica! It comes out October 4th 🙂

Fans of @lauren_oliver_books will be so excited about the release of REPLICA (in stores October 4th!) I'm a huge fan of unique and creative ways of storytelling and this book is so unique– the story is told from two points of view, and you have to flip the book over and upside down to get both sides. You can read one story in full and then the other, or alternate chapters – however you choose to #ReadReplica! I partnered with @EpicReads to be #TeamGemma and share a bit about her side of the story. Gemma is a sickly and lonely teen. When she’s almost abducted, she starts to investigate her family and its connection to a facility that creates human models. What happens when she finds herself face to face with these replicas? Pre-order now for its release on October 4th to find out! How are you planning on reading Replica? I think I'm going to try reading alternate chapters and see how I like it, or maybe just read Gemma's story first! Can't wait to finally start reading this! 💝 This book is going straight to the top of my October TBR.

DNF this book. I loved Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall but struggled with her Delirium series and vague endings. The premise of this story was great with two POV's but lacked 3D characters and did not keep me engaged. The plot sadly melted away with the introduction of hormone crazed main protagonists. I struggled with which order to read this book and was just let down by the entire characters of Gemma and Lyra who needed love interests to keep their characters remotely interesting 🤦🏼‍♀️ ✨ #bookstagram #bibliophile #bookworm #reader #booklove #ilovereading #bookphoto #bookish #booklover #bookgeek #bookish #bookstagramfeature #bookaddict #igreads #books #bookishfeatures #booksmagazine #yafiction #yabooks #laurenoliver

About Replica

Lyra’s story begins in the Haven Institute, a building tucked away on a private island off the coast of Florida that from a distance looks serene and even beautiful. But up close the locked doors, military guards, and biohazard suits tell a different story. In truth, Haven is a clandestine research facility where thousands of replicas, or human models, are born, raised, and observed. When a surprise attack is launched on Haven, two of its young experimental subjects—Lyra, or 24, and the boy known only as 72—manage to escape.

Gemma has been in and out of hospitals for as long as she can remember. A lonely teen, her life is circumscribed by home, school, and her best friend, April. But after she is nearly abducted by a stranger claiming to know her, Gemma starts to investigate her family’s past and discovers her father’s mysterious connection to the secretive Haven research facility. Hungry for answers, she travels to Florida, only to stumble upon two replicas and a completely new set of questions.

While the stories of Lyra and Gemma mirror each other, each contains breathtaking revelations critically important to the other story. Replica is an ambitious, thought-provoking masterwork.
