Day 3 BookTubeAThon

Yesterday I finished Legend by Marie Lu and I just finished Prodigy (the sequel) AND NOW I AM SO ANGRY THAT I HAVE TO GO TO WORK. I just want to read the 3rd book!!! Gah! At least I’m right on track with my 7 books in 7 days…for now.

July152014

Day 1

Day 1 is officially over and I finished Maus 1 & 2 and have only about 50 pages left in Legend. I call that a good day!

July142014

Finished Maus 1&2 so far today! Now on to Legend

July132014

BookTube-a-thon!!

I am doing this for the first time (because I just heard of it). Let’s see if I can meet all of the reading challenges!!

Reading Challenges:

#1: Read a book with pictures: Maus 
#2: Start and finish a series: I’ll be reading Legend, Prodigy and Champion by Marie Lu for this one!
#3: Read a book with Red on the cover: The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer 
#4: Read a book that someone picks out for you: For this one I asked Mike to find a book on our bookshelves that I hadn’t read yet. He chose The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith for me. 
#5: Read a book from the genre you’ve read the least of this year: I’m doubling up on this one and it will be Maus!
#6: Read a book to movie adaptation and watch the movie: The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp 
#7: Read 7 books in 7 days. If I read all of the ones I have planned to read I will accomplish this! 


It’s definitely going to be challenging to do this while working 5 out of 7 days and other responsibilities… but I THRIVE OFF OF PRESSURE AND DEADLINES! So, let’s make this happen!

  1. You are stronger than you realize.
  2. You are more cruel than you realize.
  3. The smallest words will break your heart.
  4. You will change. You’re not the same person you were three years ago. You’re not even the same person you were three minutes ago and that’s okay. Especially if you don’t like the person you were three minutes ago.
  5. People come and go. Some are cigarette breaks, others are forest fires.
  6. You won’t like your name until you hear someone say it in their sleep.
  7. You’ll forget your email password but ten years from now you’ll still remember the number of steps up to his flat.
  8. You don’t have to open the curtains if you don’t want to.
  9. Never stop yourself from texting someone. If you love them at 4 a.m., tell them. If you still love them at 9:30 a.m., tell them again.
  10. Make sure you have a safe place. Whether it’s the kitchen floor or the travel section of a bookshop, just make sure you have a safe place.
  11. You will be scared of all kinds of things— of spiders and clowns and eating alone— but your biggest fear will be that people will see you the way you see yourself.
  12. Sometimes, looking at someone will be like looking into the sun. Sometimes, someone will look at you like you are the sun. Wait for it.
  13. You will learn how to sleep alone, how to avoid the cold corners, but still fill a bed.
  14. Always be friends with broken people. They know how to survive.
  15. You can love someone and hate them, all at once. You can miss them so much you ache but still ignore your phone when they call.
  16. You are good at something, whether it’s making someone laugh or remembering their birthday. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that these things don’t matter.
  17. You will always be hungry for love. Always. Even when someone is asleep next to you you’ll envy the pillow touching their cheek and the sheet hiding their skin.
  18. Loneliness is nothing to do with how many people are around you but how many of them understand you.
  19. People say I love you all the time. Even when they say, ‘Why didn’t you call me back?’ or ‘He’s an asshole.’ Make sure you’re listening.
  20. You will be okay.
  21. You will be okay.

do you ever have second-hand obsessions

like one of your friends is super obsessed with a thing so whenever you see something about it you’re like “YES THIS THING” but you’re not the one obsessed with it. they are. you know very little about this thing and yet it still excites you because it excites your friend

This is half of my tumblr experience

“I think about how there are certain people who come into your life, and leave a mark. And I don’t just mean that they change you. A lot of people can change you - the first kid who called you a name, the first teacher who said you were smart, the first person who crowned you best friend. It’s the change you remember, the firsts & what they meant, not really the people. I’m talking about the ones who, for whatever reason, are as much a part of you as your own soul. Their place in your heart is tender; a bruise of longing, a pulse of unfinished business. Just hearing their names pushes and pulls at you in a hundred ways, and when you try to define those hundred ways, describe them even to yourself, words are useless. If you had a lifetime to talk, there would still be things left unsaid.” Daily Tumblr Love Quotes (via thelovewhisperer)

"This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals—sounds that say listen to this, it is important.” - Gary Provost

Reading this was so satisfying woah

SPOTLIGHT: Hyperrealistic Drawings of Everyday Objects By Marcello Barenghi

Well, damn. Italian artist Marcello Barenghi draws incredibly realistic everyday objects that appear almost three dimensional simply with the help of colored pencils.
