Read books. Care about things. Get excited. Try not to be too down on yourself. Enjoy the ever-present game of knowing.
As I was watching [Beyoncé’s visual album] I felt very conflicted, I felt her message felt very conflicted in the sense that on the one hand she is putting herself in a category of a feminist, but then the camera, it felt very male, such a male voyeuristic experience of her.
I keep telling myself to finish at least 2 out of the 3 books I’m reading before picking up another one. But eventually I find myself with 2 new books open in front of me and dying to read more stories than logically possible in this one short day.
Tumblr won’t let me respond asscrown-noahshaw, but I love this question! I’m lucky enough to get to read Sarah’s stuff early and give her feedback (if she even needs it!), so my answer to this is actually that I’m on Team Alex-Gets-the-New-Hottie-in-Heir-of-Fire-Calling-Dibs-Now-Sorry-Ladies. So many new fictional dreamboats in Heir of Fire, you don’t even know. YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW.

I keep saying there will most likely be more contenders for Celaena’s heart in the future. EXCITED !! can’t wait for Heir of Fire.
I have recently acquired 2 books by Mark Forsythey are:
1. The Etymologicon: A Circular Stroll through the Hidden Connections of the English Language.
2. The Elements of Eloquence: How to Turn the Perfect English Phrase.
They are both quite interesting reads and full of fascinating information. I highly recommend for writers and anyone who enjoys learning more about the English language, writing and words.
Happy Friday Reads :D
Some things you hear with your ears. Others, you hear with your heart.
You can see the difference in how these characters were brought up clearly from the younger years. Harry if you remember has to be prompted to tell his name, most likely because the Dursley’s hated to acknowledge he is important. Ron, as an afterthought tells his name as though he always gets a head of himself and must be reminded all the time to tell others who he is. While Hermione recites her name as though she has walked up to so many kids trying to make friends, because her parents told her the easiest way to make friends is to introduce yourself. And finally Draco leads with his family name because it shows his pure blood status and sets him above the rest; it is what makes him important and special, and his last name is the only thing that matters. Yet in the end war does not care what your name is, it hurts without discrimination, and that is what the second gifs display all too well.
Why would you do that.
Reblog if you finished reading CRESS and are dying for WINTER!
