Personal rec list -Rosemod

I still feel as if I’ve missed out a bunch of you guys. 

Strangely, we have a few disturbing blogs following us, no idea why unless they also have a massive interest in the kawaii comm.  

The list is a mixture of different blogs, different kinds of people, some are NSFW and they’re not all Kawaii blogs from what I’ve seen. Remember that these are just blogs I personally like. Tell me if any of the links don’t work!

Any way! Here it goes:

We’re Only Getting Better (xiuhan written by sassively)
Luhan thinks Minseok deserves everything—even the things he can’t give him.

This is ridiculously cute and ridiculously well-written. Minseok’s character is literally so A+ in this. Comfort over insecurities of ace!partners is basically what I live for; ace!characters in general are so lovely and rare– this fic is a gem.

GRACE’S TOP READS
(written by Grace)

I know we all love a good read, whether it’s sitting outside in a park with a sweet John Green book or turning off the lights and reading a thrilling saga under the covers. Sometimes the only thing to put me to sleep or to calm myself is to grab a book and start reading and fall into a world of words. So I thought, for my fellow bookworms out there, I would list my top reads that made me cry, laugh and left my eyes wide open until 2 am flicking through page after page:

The first time they had sex they were in Italy, and shells were falling and they thought they were going to die. He dragged Bucky down between the roots of a huge tree and pulled the shield up over them, not that he thought it would save them, because they were at the very limits of human sensory experience—ears ringing from the shells, fire coming down in flakes all around, and bits of burning metal, and the ground trembling beneath them, and Bucky on top of him, sooty and strong and terrified, kissing him. His hand found the fly of Bucky’s pants, unzipped it, and slid inside, and kissing never seemed to make anybody hard in the movies, but God, he was hard, and Bucky was too, pushing into his hand, and there was a spot just above Bucky’s left eyebrow where he liked being kissed; he made whimpering sounds when you kissed him there. And sometimes when things are hot like that, they fuse.

reasons to read the captive prince trilogy by c.s. pacat
  • princes! political intrigue! secret identities! secret pasts! sword fights! thwarted assassination attempts! ever-fluctuating power dynamics! hand-feeding! pining! oh, so much pining! oh, so much tension!
  • absolutely incredible slow build of the central relationship! they go from being actual mortal enemies to being completely in love over the course of the first two books, completely believably and at a beautiful pace :’) coming from someone who doesn’t really care either way about Plot but dies over relationship and character development, believe me: this story does not disappoint.
  • c.s. pacat has said that bl manga has been one of her big influences! if you are a fan of bl and also a reader of novels then this is honestly a perfect story for you.
  • book three has been completed and submitted and will be out soon! read it now and you’ll get all the fun of Anticipating the release without all the pain of having the anticipation last literal years.
  • so! what is it even about, you ask? in short: prince damianos of akielos is betrayed, stripped of his identity, and sent to the enemy country of vere as a pleasure slave–specifically gifted to the crown prince laurent, who just so happens to hate damen more than anyone else in the world probably, as damen killed his older brother six years prior on the battlefield at marlas. how will damen make it back to akielos? why do people want laurent dead? what really happened at marlas? pick up the books for answers to these questions, and more!
  • book 1 (captive prince) is available now as an ebook and in print. book 2 (prince’s gambit) is available now as an ebook and in july in print. book 3 (king’s rising) will be out soon, hopefully later this year! it is carried at major chain bookstores and at independent booksellers and it is being released in several countries, so you will hopefully be able to obtain it in your chosen format and from your chosen retailer!
  • NOTE: there is some upsetting and difficult material in this novel. c.s. pacat has had a detailed list of content warnings on her livejournal since the story first started, so there’s no need to go in unprepared. if you have specific triggers feel free to send me an ask; i’m happy to go into more detail.

HEART WARMING MOVIE MARATHON
(written by Grace)

I love feel good movies, because thats exactly what they do, right? By the end of the movie you have felt probably every emotion and you are left questioning every choice with an open and lighter outlook. Give these movies a chance, some you may know and some you may have never heard of, which just makes it more exciting! So grab some snacks and find a comfy spot on the sofa and get watching!

MY FAVOURITE FRENCH FILMS
(written by Lamija)

I love the French language and that makes me enamoured with French cinema. I’m a movie junkie in general, so when I got Netflix five years ago I discovered so many French films. Films that I didn’t know existed. Well I wanted to share some of my favorite French films in hoping that you’ll enjoy them as much as I did. Discovering something new is one of the best feelings.

anonymous asked:

So.. Which Discworld novel do you recommend starting with?

Ooooh, that old chestnut. There are plenty of reading order guides around, so you might find one just to make sure you keep track of all of them.

What I did was just start from the first one (Light Fantastic & Colour of Magic) because I am a stubborn little shit. Reading in ordinary chronological order will give you the fullest experience and make you really appreciate the slowly evolving worldbuilding, plus there is a lot of crossover bonuses you lose when you don’t read chronologically. So if you’re a quick reader and you’ve got a lot of time on your hands, do that.

Otoh, the reason why people often don’t recommend starting with The Colour of Magic is that it isn’t really typical of what Discworld really is. It’s still very pastiche, parody of traditional fantasy, with a lack of the character depth and realism that makes the rest of Discworld so satisfying to read. Mind you, they’re still good, but they’re not representative.

So, alternatives: there’s a couple of standalones that work pretty alright on their own:

- Small Gods: set some undefined time before the rest of the series, about organised religion and tyranny and Ancient Greece. You will never look at turtles in quite the same way again. Also notable for having no romantic subplot and a character that’s both morally pure and really likeable.

- The Truth/Going Postal: the way in if you’re into steampunk. The Truth takes the semi-medieval city of Ankh-Morpork and introduces newspapers; in Going Postal the industrial revolution is already well on its way and the city’s boss gets in a reformed crook to revamp the postal service.

- Monstrous Regiment: FEMINISM. A girl crossdresses to join her (backward, aggressive, religiously fanatical) country’s army to find her brother. Shenanigans ensue. Contains the closest thing DW has to a lesbian couple, some really really interesting musings about gender, and a coffee-addicted vampire. (also contains some really dark scenes)

Then there’s the subseries:

- Guards Guards: Vimes is one of the best-loved characters of the series, and with reason. And he evolves: in this first one he’s still a cynical, mostly incompetent drunk, and as the series progresses he slowly gains power and confidence and it’s gorgeous to see. All Watch books are basically CSI: Ankh-Morpork and vaguely Sherlock Holmes-like. Your way in if you like crime and detective stories.

- Wyrd Sisters: the other main subseries, ie the Witches.. Women. So many women. Notable for failing the reverse Bechdel test, that’s how many women there are in. Witches are basically the Discworld’s equivalent of social workers in rural areas, with a sidedish of magic: all Witches stories follow roughly the same plotline of the three main witches having to fight off some supernatural foe. They are also explicit parodies: Wyrd Sisters does Shakespeare (Macbeth in particular), Witches Abroad is Cinderella, Lords and Ladies is every Fae myth, Maskerade the Phantom of the Opera, and Carpe Jugulum is vampires.

- The Wee Free Men: reboot of the Witches series, basically, only with a teeny-tiny witch - nine year old Tiffany Aching has all the characteristics of Pratchett’s other witches but in the form of a kid. They’re more story-driven and less parody than the Witches proper, so if you don’t like buttloads of references, this might be best.

- Hogfather: strictly speaking you should read Soul Music before this one, but Hogfather introduces one of the other most beloved protags of DW, ie Susan Sto Helit, granddaughter of Death (it’s… complicated. details are in Soul Music). A lot of fun with the classic tropes of fairy tales, plus Susan is a wonderfully sarcastic, angry, takes-no-shit genre-savvy badass.

And then, if you don’t mind missing out on references and continuity:

- Night Watch: Sixth in the Watch series, and arguably the best of the lot. Sam Vimes travels thirty years back in time, meaning there’s a lot of dramatic irony if you know the rest of the series, but you can still follow without that. It’s dark, it’s angry, it’s depressing, and burns with revolutionary spirit.

And there’s more, of course. A lot depends on your interests. Egyptian mythology? Take Pyramids. Feudal-age China? have a look at Interesting Times. Want fun with Australia? Try the Last Continent. Etc. 

Personally, my recommendation would be to first read one of the later ones, that really matches your interests, just to see if you’re into it. And if you’re hooked, start at the start, because frankly I’ve never seen more beautiful and complex world building and character evolution than in Discworld.

Hope that helped a bit, anon!
