If you find a lovely girl who reads, keep her. You’ll find her glued to her books at all hours of the day, and at 3 AM she will be clutching her book to her chest weeping over the death of her favorite character, you might not understand why she’s crying, but make her a cup of tea, hold her, and don’t tell her to get over it. You may lose her for hours upon hours of the day, but at the end she will always return to your arms. She will talk about the stories as if they were real,because to her they are. She falls in love with the vivid backgrounds, the winding plot, and the lovable characters, Her imagination becomes a bigger part of her than you will ever conceive, and you deserve someone like that. You deserve someone who can create beautiful colorful thoughts from the grayest most dull views. If you want her in your world, then accept her for all of hers, both fictional and true.

Well, Étienne St. Claire is not a wizard but he is a cute boy. 😍❤️ And. St. Clair. Is. BAE!

"Over the past few months, I’ve come to realise that I’m far more of a blog than an actual person. I don’t know when this blogging thing started, and I don’t know when or why I signed up to this website, but I can’t seem to remember what I did before and I don’t know what I’d do if I delete it. I severely regret starting this blog, I really do. But it’s the only place I ever find people who are sort of like me. People talk about themselves here in ways that people don’t in real life."

I love seeing the bookshops and meeting the booksellers— booksellers really are a special breed. No one in their right mind would take up clerking in a bookstore for the salary, and no one in his right mind would want to own one— the margin of profit is too small. So, it has to be a love of readers and reading that makes them do it— along with first dibs on the new books.
