I’ve rediscovered what stopped me from reading LOTR as a kid. Chapter 7 and they are still in The Shire. christ.
i have like 609453804 books to read
but you know what i’m gonna do
i’m gonna buy more books
And then I will read fanfiction.
and then i will read books that i’ve already read
YA LIT MEME » ten series or books (6/10) » Shadow and Bone
It either takes me 5 months to read a book or I read five of them in 2 days. There is no inbetween.
Self Portrait through a book (statement here)
do you ever wish you could unread a book or unwatch a movie/tv show just so you could go back and experience it all again as if it were brand new
So I’m reading Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo.
I ship Alina and the Darkling so hard and they’ve barely met each other yet. I hope this is a common thing.
Mal just seems like the “Gale” type character, best friend since forever, super gorgeous but kinda distant. I never liked Gale as a romantic option, so I doubt I’ll like Mal any better.
I’m so glad this is gonna be lika trilogy or something. It’s so good.
I don’t care if I have 12 books I haven’t read yet. I need more.

Books are a uniquely portable magic
Favorite Books: The Fault in our Stars by John Green
So my grandmother was watching CTV and they had a story on a book club filled with teen girls. The story was basically talking about how “sick-lit” is endorsing suicide and depression and is telling kids that suicide is a great option.
not only is that horribly inaccurate, and the psychiatrist they interviewed that said it should be slapped, but they mentioned The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (aka my favourite book ever).
TFioS, for those who don’t know (SPOILER ALERT), is about a girl who is dying of cancer, meets and falls in love with another cancer patient, and he dies.
I’m not sure how they even get the idea that TFioS endorses depression and suicide, but apparently they believe it makes kids sad and want to die. Bullshit. They complained that it was so popular and was a bestseller for a long time. Seriously?!
They also mentioned books such as ”By The Time You Read This, I’ll Be Dead” “Thirteen Reasons Why” and “Before I Die”.
Thirteen Reasons Why is a story of a girl who commits suicide, but it never endorses it or makes the statement that she made a good choice. It also follows a boy who loved her and shows how everyone is affected by her choice.
They complained that Before I Die was advocating sex at a young age, as the main character is dying and wants to complete a bucket list, that includes having sex. Like, come on people.
Kids are reading. These books are not endorsing suicide, depression, or anything else, but they are talking about them, and making them public and trying to get kids to talk about them with others.
I’m more concerned about kids, teens, and adults, that read Fifty Shades of Grey and think that that shows a healthy relationship and a great example of BDSM (hint, it’s not, and it breaks every BDSM rule there is)
So basically, fuck this article. You’re trying to tell kids that they are stupid and easily influenced. Well okay, guess they should stop watching tv and movies too, cause look at all the crime shows and drama shows out there where people commit suicide or murder. Are they not going to be influenced by that too?
