☀Daily Book Chat #32:☀ Personal Book Shops...Do you own one?





 Hello everyone! Welcome to my  ☀Daily Book Chat☀ where I do some SERIOUS discussions that fellow book fans will get a kick out of and relate their thoughts about the subject to other book fans!

Today's discussion question is Personal Book Shops...Do you own one?


Well, the day has finally come... I now officially own my own Society 6 book shop!





(YAAAAYYY)!!





I never would have thought that I, little ole Rabbitearsblog, would actually go out of my way to create a shop where I can sell off my designs that are mostly based off of book quotes (although I'm towing the line about whether or not I should also include movies, TV shows and video game inspired designs to the mix too).


Why did I decided to create my own book shop, you ask?  Is it because I wanted MONEY and making AWESOME designs would help me get laid with money in the long run? Or is it because I wanted to spread my BOOK LOVE to fellow readers by creating designs that expresses my LOVE for books?  Well, it's a bit of both: I do need the MONEY to buy more books, but I also wanted to support the book community by creating designs that deals with books and letting everyone check out the designs. 



I was also inspired to start my own book shop because of ETSY, since I tend to buy a lot of AWESOME bookish items from my fellow readers' shops!  Some of my favorite book shops over at Etsy are Bookish Signs, Bookbookowl and BookNookCandles !

Personally, I enjoy having a personal book shop because I want to spread the love of reading through merchandises and other items (although, who can possibly beat the MAGIC of just reading a good ole fashioned book)? 




So, let's support the book community by supporting EVERYONE who have their own book shops whether it be from Etsy, Society6 or any other shop! 








So, do you have your own shop where you get to sell bookish items?  And if you do, what websites do you use to sell your items (Society6, Etsy)?



And to further support each other, list the links to your profiles on the sites where you sell your bookish items down below (I would definitely DIE AND GO TO HEAVEN just to check out what creative items everyone has created)!


Annnnnnddddd....as always everybody:



HAPPY READING, BOOK FANS!!!!

Waiting on Wednesday #118: A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer




Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for!  This will also tie into Wishful Ending's Can't Wait Wednesday post!







This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:





Title:  A Curse so Dark and Lonely
Author:  Brigid Kemmerer
Expected Publication Date:  January 29th, 2019



Fall in love, break the curse.

It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.

Nothing has ever been easy for Harper Lacy. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world.

Break the curse, save the kingdom.

A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.


Oooh! Another fairy tale retelling!! This time it's "Beauty and the Beast!" Can't wait to read this book soon!


So, what upcoming books are you looking forward to?  Please respond below!

Cover Spotlight #28: January 13th, 2019 - January 20th, 2019



Hey everyone!  I just created a new book meme called "Cover Spotlight" where you get to showcase your favorite book covers!  It can be a book cover from a book you've read years ago, a book cover from a book you just recently read or a book cover from a book that you've never read before, but you still love the cover!  You can also feature multiple book covers instead of one for this meme! This is a weekly meme, which means that the meme starts every Sunday, but you have until the Sunday after that week to post your favorite covers!

To tweet your posts, use this hashtag here:



#coverspotlight







I just love the starry sky look of this cover and the letterings are so beautifully done!

I am participating in a book meme called the Sunday Post which is being hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer!The goal of this meme is to share news you have  on various books and things you’ve read or received and also talk about what is coming up for your blog! Book hauls can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books and you can share these finds with other book bloggers!


Hey everyone! HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!  I know it has been awhile since I last did a Sunday Post, but I was so busy during the holidays that I just didn't have enough time to make a lot of blog posts.  Well, I'm going to remedy that this year by posting as many blog posts as I can!  I hope everyone had a great start to the New Year so far.  I certainly did as I finally passed my driver's test!! I'm so happy that I finally got my license since now I can drive to whatever location I need to go to!  Also, I just opened up my shop over at Society6, so if you want to check out what bookish goodies I'm selling through that site, then please feel free to check out my shop!

* YAASSS!!!! I finally got the chance to watch this show!! I've been trying to watch this show like forever, but I never had the time to do so.  Now, I finally watched both the first and second seasons of this show and I LOVED IT!  There's just so much mystery and horror in this show that I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat trying to see how the characters will get out of the dangerous situations that they get into.  I can't wait for the third season to premiere this year!

Waiting on Wednesday #117: Stain by A.G. Howard




Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for!  This will also tie into Wishful Ending's Can't Wait Wednesday post!







This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:





Title:  Stain
Author:  A.G. Howard
Expected Publication Date:  January 15th, 2019



A high-fantasy gothic fairytale inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Princess and the Pea.

Once upon a nightmare, her fairy tale begins...

After Lyra—a princess incapable of speech or sound—is cast out of her kingdom of daylight by her wicked aunt, a witch saves her life, steals her memories, and raises her in an enchanted forest ... disguised as a boy known only as Stain. Meanwhile, in Lyra's rival kingdom, the prince of thorns and night is dying, and the only way for him to break his curse is to wed the princess of daylight, for she is his true equal. As Lyra rediscovers her identity, an impostor princess prepares to steal her betrothed prince and her crown. To win back her kingdom, save the prince, and make peace with the land of the night, Lyra must be loud enough to be heard without a voice, and strong enough to pass a series of tests—ultimately proving she’s everything a traditional princess is not.


I just love fairy tale retellings and I'm really interested in this "The Princess and the Pea" retelling!
