SNOW LIKE ASHES by Sara Raasch

This book was incredible. From the moment I started reading, I wanted to know more about the world and the characters, and where the story was going. I thought Meira was a fantastic character, she’s strong, determined and resourceful, and I took an instant liking to her.

I’m glad I read this when I didn’t have much else to do, because it was one of those books that I just couldn’t put down. I was so fascinated by the world and the way magic worked, and I loved learning about the history of Primoria. The writing was beautiful too; emotive with just the right amount of description, so that it felt like I was right there with the characters and a part of everything they were going through.

I can’t wait to read Ice Like Fire and find out where the story goes next, because one book in this world, with these characters definitely wasn’t enough.

Opposed to Scavenger, I’ve pretty much wanted these guys forever. Seeing them on the same stall as him, all sealed was just lovely. They all possess push along (/ stick to the underside of Cyclonus) geared gimmicks. Dune Runner is my fave for his muddy paint apps, turning turret and real outdoors feel. Ransack has a neat working winch and is a similarly boss utilitarian jeep. Iceberg though feels like an odd one out. Like the other two can adventure anywhere but he’s only really any good in the Arctic? I do like me some orange snow vehicles though. Just gotta wait for it to snow.

I kissed the lips of dead rose petals and stroked the cheeks of sunken ships. With an unclear mind, shaky breaths, and highly built walls, I met you. Everything was blurry but I can remember the storm in your eyes. Pale blue like the ocean and then stunning like the stars that lit up the sky. Your hands were cold like snow but your breath was warm like the summer’s breeze. You were the walking definition of contradictions, a paradox, and I loved it. But I watched you become the ocean’s tides. Stampeding towards the shore and then running from the sand as if it was burning holes in your bare feet. You started to float away like a bottled message that had been tossed into the sea. I silently begged you to stay as the salty ocean burned my eyes, but then I realized I was the tide, the little girl running alway scared of letting down her walls only to be left again, but that wasn’t who you were, I was the one who turned you into something temporary.

you know what’s a good idea? snowy forests. ever seen a forest in the snow? like when the snow is super fresh and everything’s all serene and peaceful? here let me just

yeah like honestly that’s the good stuff right there

I love how some Glee songs remind me different things. Like every year around winter I’d get a song that feels like snow (Don’t dream it’s over, We are young) or a song that reminds me of sun and summer holidays (Pompeii, I love New York/New York, New York)

Hello there dear! Quick question, is Oregon a nice place to live? I've been thinking of moving there after graduation (because i desperately need to get away from my family) and I hear that it's pretty and cloudy most of the time, is that true?

i, personally, love it here just because of the weather and other little things (like no sales tax and you don’t have to pump your own gas lol) and it is really cloudy and rainy here. it’s not like it’s cloudy all summer or anything but yeah most of the winter is cloudy/rainy. we don’t get a ton of harsh weather though (like wind, snow, fires, below 0 weather etc.)
