Tbh I think any book with a love triangle should be labelled as fantasy because really having TWO people wanting to be with you? At the same time? Fucking witchcraft

ok let’s talk about six of crows. of the main characters alone there is:

- a physically disabled boy who suffers from severe PTSD
- a dark skinned middle eastern-coded girl who was a victim of sex trafficking but escaped and vowed revenge on all sex traffickers
- a bisexual-coded girl who is explicitly described as being larger and not stick-thin but is still described as beautiful, sexual, and incredibly powerful
- an explicitly bisexual dark skinned POC boy who ends up in a m/m relationship
- an explicitly gay boy who is looked down on by his family for severe reading and learning disabilities but who instead becomes and incredible scientist and musician
- and matthias

basically please read six of crows & crooked kingdom by leigh bardugo if you want your faith in the future of YA lit restored

i wish there were some famous ya books like the raven cycle, the foxhole court, ari and dante, the song of achilles, pjo, the mortal instruments, i’ll give you the sun but with f/f for instance………. it gets so tiring, like i love the rep but it’s exhausting that there’s literally no f/f rep in popular ya lit

Gay books you should read!

Most YA Novels VS Sarah J Maas Novels
  • Katniss: I'm really not that pretty.
  • Peeta: Your so beautiful.
  • Tris: I'm not pretty.
  • Four: I love your haircut, and you're gorgeous to me.
  • Clary: I'm not beautiful, or pretty, I'm just cute.
  • Jace: You're the most beautiful girl I've ever laid eyes on.
  • Aelin: I'm the most stunning being to ever grace this freaking planet.
  • Rowan: Yeah babe, even the bakery down the street heard you yell that.

It irritates the shit out of me when people interrupt me when I’m reading like, I’m in the zone, I’m in an entirely different fucking world so don’t fucking pat me on the shoulder susan

My Week in Pictures: May 8th - 14th // been feeling pretty miserable this week because I’ve been sick with the flu, but I’ve been trying to maintain a positive mindset so here are some little moments that made me feel calm and content 🌟🍂 

  • Friend: Yeah, I'm not really a book person.
  • Me with blood shot eyes from crying and lack of sleep, empty wallet from buying books and paying overdue library book fees, aching body from constantly being in an uncomfortable reading position, emotionally drained from reading that heartbreaking scene, overwhelmed from the mountain of books on my TBR: You poor unfortunate soul.

I read YA because if I wanted to hear about bills and mid life crises then I would talk to my dad
