elite glass

Deciding what book to read next is like a fucking military operation like do I want fantasy? romance? deep and meaningful? trashy?

Or do I just want to reread a book I’ve read 10 fucking times I just don’t know

Short but accurate summaries of popular books/series
  • Red Rising: *George RR Martin approved*
  • Lux: Main love interest is the child of Jace Herondale and Number Four.
  • Raven Cycle: Fun with Dick and Jane. Except instead of fun there's dead people.
  • Ruby Red: Homework is a more appealing option than time travel.
  • Endgame: The 39 Clues, rated R. Also everything you know is wrong.
  • Shadowhunter Chronicles: Racist and oppressive society keeps blatantly ignoring that its racism and oppression is why the oppressed keep trying to kill them.
  • School For Good and Evil: Two girls are the first in +200 years to call BS on heavy prejudices that have made their school an incredibly toxic environment.
  • Vicious: If you relate/agree with either main character, PLEASE seek professional help.
  • The Young Elites: Kindly check your moral compass and whatever sense of morality you may have left at the door, thank you and try not to die.
  • Throne of Glass: Protagonist will love you if you give her a gorgeous dress, a puppy, chocolate cake, or an assortment of deadly weapons (and preferably a reason to use them).
  • Coldest Girl In Coldtown: Vampires go viral. This is basically a quote.
  • Steelheart: Nice try, Brandon Sanderson, I still want superpowers.
  • Gates of Thread and Stone: "ALL RIGHT, WHO STARTED THE APOCALYPSE?" *magic and science point at each other accusingly*
  • Red Queen: Superpowers+racism=a whole lot of dead people.
  • The Darkest Minds: Good news, you survived a deadly plague. Bad news, the government officials who now dictate your life REALLY wish you hadn't.
  • Penryn and the End of Days: Angels and Humans differ in every conceivable aspect...except sarcasm. That's universal.

Book ladies: part one, /part two/

She gave it all, you gave her shit
She coulda done, just anything
Or anyone, cause she’s a goddess
You never got this
You put her down, you liked her hopeless
To walk around, feeling unnoticed
You shoulda crowned her, cause she’s a goddess
You never got this

Why do authors think it’s okay to make you get attached to characters only for them to kill them off like what fucking planet are you from mate this isn’t okay

If The Selection met Red Queen

These events would take place:

• Cal and Maven laughing their ass off at Maxon’s incompetence.

• Celeste and Evangeline becoming besties. Celeste would ask Evangeline to rip the dresses off other girls’ backs.

• The Kings’ would be having a toast together “for being evil af”

• Mare would’ve electrocuted America at some point for pissing her off.

• The Queens’ sitting in an awkward silence after Amberly failed for the umpteenth time to start up a conversation.

• Kilorn and Aspen stuck with each other ever since: 

Aspen: You couldn’t get the girl?

Kilorn: *sighs*

Aspen: Same
