wow! this book truly is the holy grail of picture books, and I’m so happy to finally be assured that feminist books are becoming more and more accessible to young children! 

because that’s what this book is - feminist, and unapologetically so. 100 women to inspire the young girls of the world, and 100 women to teach young boys respect towards their peers (and 100 women to make a book blogger very happy) - now that’s something a lot of picture books are simply incapable of doing with their princess, damsel in distress business. 

I have no idea how to even begin telling you how gorgeous every single illustration in this book is, so here are a few of my favourite pages! 

rita levi montalcini - scientist (this was my favourite story!) 

grace o’malley - pirate 

astrid lindgren - author (and a very good one at that, might I add!)

frida kahlo - painter 

ruth bader ginsburg - supreme court justice 


These days, I feel like some people are missunderstanding what does mean being a bookworm.

You don’t need to own hundreds of books to be a bookworm… you don’t need to read twenty books a month to be a bookworm… you don’t need to read the highest literature to be a bookworm.

Everything you need is just a lust for books.

Do you guys ever lend your books to other people? Do you also worry that they might not take care of it they way you do?

His feelings for Adam were an oil spill; he’d let them overflow and now there wasn’t a damn place in the ocean that wouldn’t catch fire if he dropped a match.

The Raven King

                                        “Maybe there isn’t such a thing as fate.
            Maybe it’s just the opportunities we’re given, and what we do with them.
           I’m beginning to think that maybe great, epic romances don’t just happen.
                                            We have to make them ourselves.”


the raven king is done! man what a ride, i forget how much happens in this one

like tfc, the sticky notes are color coded: red/pink are sad/grim significant moments, yellow is exy history or significant game moments, orange is moments that made me laugh, green is general significant moments, and blue is character insight/development

i probably won’t color code tkm because i’m running out of sticky notes (and ive read tkm one more time than tfc and trk, so i know it better), but i should have tkm done in the next few days!
