magicalquote:

Never fear quarrels, but seek hazardous adventures.

You know what’s sad about reading books? It’s that you fall in love with the characters. They grow on you. And as you read, you start to feel what they feel - all of them - you become them. And when you’re done, you’re never the same. Sure you’re still you, you look the same, talk in the same manner, but something in you has changed. Something in the way you think, the way you choose, sometimes, even the things you say may differ. But it all comes down to the state you go to after a nice novel. The after-feeling. It’s amazing, but somehow, you feel left alone by that world you were once in. It’s overwhelming. But it makes you sad. Cause for once you were this, this otherworldly being in… Neverwhere, and then you suddenly have to say goodbye after a few weeks from when you read the last page. When you’ve recovered from that state it’s just… quite sad.
Suzanne Collins

  • If You Could See Me Now (2005) (titled A Silver Lining in the U.S.A.)
  • A Place Called Here (2006) (titled There’s No Place Like Here in the U.S.A.)
  • Thanks for the Memories (2008)
  • The Gift (2008)
  • The Book of Tomorrow (2009)
  • Girl in the Mirror / The Memory Maker (short stories) (2010)
  • The Time of my Life (2011)
  • One Hundred Names (2012)
  • How to Fall in Love (2013)
Bit of a disappointment. I liked the book’s style (the whole story is made up mostly of letters, e-mails and online discussions), but at the end I was pretty angry. I believe the story could have ended a lot sooner. I think I found this from some recycling shelf (so I got this for free which is great). I love Ahern’s books in general, but this irritated me a bit.By the way I’m reading for the first time in my life two books at the same time… I had to take a small break from The Count of Monte Cristo. It’s a good book but it’s pretty damn big. Tomorrow I will continue with Monte Cristo, at least for a couple of days

This is easily the funniest, most enjoyable book that I have read for months.  I’m giving it 10/10 points: yes, it’s that good.  Though I have greatly enjoyed other Discworld books, such as the Lost Continent, this is the funniest, most enjoyable, and even most engrossing book that I have yet read of that magnificent series. Going Postal was probably the best way to recover from the extreme trauma that I had caused myself by grinding through five of Robert Jordon’s Wheel of Time series. I mean, imagine having a book with a plot that actually moves and has likeable, well-fleshed out characters.
Moist Von Lipwig is one of my favorite types of fictional characters: a rougish con man, that has never really harmed anyone, but is not too far gone down the road of crime that he can’t be reclaimed for good and puts his life and well-being on the line for the sake of others.  The secondary characters such as Miss Dearborn, Mr. Groat, Stanley, the Smoking Gnu, and others make this a thoroughly charming comic/fantasy adventure that will split your sides and warm your heart.

Nijigahara Holograph Ch.11

This one was a bit of a mindfuck. A weird manga. I don’t even know if I liked Nijigahara Holograph that much. I loved the art and in a way all the depressive stuff but I’m not so sure I liked the whole supernatural thing, mostly because I didn’t see any point for it.

Book nerd problems: missing your bus because you’re so focused on reading.

I won’t beg someone to love me. I learned long ago that there is no use in hopeless pleas of trying to make someone stay. I am too good to chase someone who does not know my worth and I am too wild to keep waiting for someone who doesn’t acknowledge my value. I want to be loved unconditionally. I shouldn’t have to fight so hard for it. I do not have the time to prove to someone that I am worth it. I shouldn’t have to prove any of that; I am worth more than that.
