There’s something about sitting alone in the dark that reminds you how big the world really is, and how far apart we all are. The stars look like they’re so close, you could reach out and touch them. But you can’t. Sometimes things look a lot closer than they are.

I never loved you any more than I do, right this second. And I’ll never love you any less than I do, right this second.

Six Worlds We’d Jump Into (IF ONLY WE COULD)

1. The Grishaverse | Leigh Bardugo
But only if we can hang out with Sturmhond. (No, just kidding. We’d go anyway.)  (Probably… .) (OKAY, WE WOULD.)

2. The Lovely Reckless | Kami Garcia
Fast cars and hot guys—we’re not sure what other incentives are necessary.

3. These Vicious Masks | Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas
So, time travel with X-Men powers? This is a no-brainer.

4. The Lunar Chronicles | Marissa Meyer
Rampion party, please!!!

5. The Remnant Chronicles | Mary E. Pearson
Who WOULDN’T want to hang out with Lia? She kicks butt.

6. The Summoner Series | Taran Matharu
So many magical creatures and so much magic—sign us up!

Dive into The Book Jumper by Mechthild Gläser and find out what Amy does when SHE finds out she has the very power every bookworm wishes they had: the power to jump into books!

I was tagged to do the #magicalbooks tag so I chose the Beautiful Creatures series. It’s so gorgeous and I don’t take nearly enough pictures of it! I am in the small minority of people it seems who really loved this series. I watched the movie first, which I also loved, and I wanted to know what the rest of the series was about. (Side Note: The movie and the book are actually nothing alike.)
