I made a huge mistake drinking that triple shot coffee thing. Boy, that was horrendously strong! *shudders There is a 98% chance I will have a difficult time falling asleep tonight.
Don’t you just hate it when you recommend books to a friend and they get super excited about going out to the library or a bookstore the next day to look for them and you can’t help getting super excited as well because you’re thinking about all the emotions you encountered when reading said books and you can’t wait to share your thoughts with him/her and then it turns out that they didn’t get the...

ialreadyfell: People say you read books because you’re alone, but maybe you’re not alone. Maybe you’re surrounded by everyone and you read to escape them.

ruffobel-izzle: I love those friends that you can just talk to about books and poems, who don’t get bored or think you’re weird, but actually talk back and recommend more books and iyfiguyfotudfo people like that are amazing. I wish I had more friends IRL who did this.
mercimonamie: i fell in love with him like ketchup falls out of a bottle: slowly, and then all at once.
When I walk into a library and don’t know what I want, I close my eyes, run my fingers along the spines, and try to pick a book that has a gravitational pull. I call it ‘summoning’ :p

goodbadanduglybooks: bookobsessivedisorder: So followers, I’ve been having trouble writing my books lately, so when I had this sudden urge to write I decided not to waste it on getting frustrated and try doing a prompt for the first time. I got one off of writeworld that said “When did I last eat corn?” And before I copy and paste what… I get writing prompts in school that are “What are you...
Some people on Xbox are just plain mean and racist. How dare they pick on my baby! Even though he’s the one playing and just shrugs it off, I’m the one getting heated.
That Quiet Earth: O, heaven preserve us!... →
funeral-wreaths: O, heaven preserve us! Lawks-a-mussy! Well now, ere long I went to my favourite bookshop in town, that I did, for I love no other bookshop in the world more than the one into which I stepped, half-dreaming with a friend; and up the stairs we went, yes, up the winding stairs that are so snakelike,…
Last night's rambles
T: If you could write a book, what would it be about?
Me: Well, I would probably pick a really out-there genre like... a dystopian zombie romance where a league of humans have taken over the world and each person controls a zombie of their choice.
T: That kind of sounds like the Sims...
Me: True... anyway, so I would have one zombie who is so fed up with being ruled by a human and all she wants to do is be with her true love so the two plot an escape but! They have to hurry because PLOT TWIST: they have the memory of a goldfish.
T: .... what??
Me: Yeah so like every fifteen seconds their memories would start over and they'd be like, "What were we talking about again?" until they remember and continue planning an escape and then bam! They lose their train of thoughts.
T: Good luck getting published.
Me: I don't expect you to understand.
Diversity in YA →
noseinabook: You guys should check this blog out! It’s a great resource for anyone looking for YA books that celebrate diversity. Pretty sure there is a blog I follow that was asking about diversity in YA a while back! I hope you find this link.
Im telling myself to use this summer as a way to read all the books I have purchased over the year, but I find it hard because all I want to do is go on a book spree or check out new releases at the library.
