It’s with great honour and gratitude to reach one thousand followers for my main/booklr/aesthetic blog. I’ve had this blog for almost a year, having that I accidentally deleted my old blog of 4 years. In the beginning, I was devastated that all my old personal blog that I’ve spent practically my whole high school life, was deleted and never retrievable but I with that, I took a deep breath, let go of that past, and started anew with this blog. A blog that I shared a specific passion in books, mythology and other aesthetics with. This blog changed everything. With it, I met a lot of new and amazing people with the same passion as me. I’ve found more books to read, shows to watch, inspirations for art and above all, friends to connect with. And with all that, I say thank you to the following whom I admire and give praise.
To Michelle aka @perxephne Without you, none of this would have happened. You’re the first book friend I’ve met before this blog! I credit you to helping me get into reading more, being with me through happy and hard times, and for becoming my first best internet buddy who I actually met! You’re such a kind, beautiful, sophisticated young soul. The kind you read in a Donna Tartt book. Thank you for sticking with me all this time and helping me blossom this blog to what it is.
To Diana aka @kazzriel I am so thankful that our paths crossed and I got to know you and connect with our love of A Court of Mist and Fury along with other books like AEITA and SOC. I first reached out to you cuz we had the same name lol and being fangirling best friends makes this blog worth while a lot of the time. I want to thank you once again and a million times more for the package of books you sent me! It’s just really cool to think we’re so far apart from each other yet we’re this close. I’m so ready to fangirl about ACOWAR with you!!!!
To my GF squad aka @dirtyhandsnet You girls changed this blog for me indefinitely. I never knew I could connect with such amazing friends and create a kind of sisterhood (or girlfriend hood?) with you girls. We connect with each other on such a high level that I don’t think most networks have. I’m so glad that I have such a supportive, caring group like you. Thank you and NMNF.
To Allie aka @alohomra You’re such a refreshing ray of sunshine when I met you in person! I think we could have talked for hours upon hours more than what we had back then. You’re a small piece of inspiration as to why I’m going into Digital Media Design here in MB. You’re so nice and bubbly and really cool! Thank you for the being there for me!
To Jem aka @lovesclub Thanks mom (we’ve been mutuals for the longest time and you helped me get on my feet as a booker) You’re way cooler than me.
To Simi aka @ninazcneik I think you were one of the first 10ish people to follow me and definitely the first mutual I’ve had. You always stick out to me. I always have admired your blog and it gives a smile to see you ask for a blograte and my notes (I’ll definitely pick up The Diviners just for you, don’t worry!). It makes me proud to be close to a blog that makes beautiful edits and is so #aesthetic. We’ve silently been stuck together since the beginning so I want to credit you in the growth of this blog too!
Even though she’s inactive at the moment I want to thank Jolly aka @rhyesand I’m so happy we started talking to each other! We’ve got more than a month’s worth of Snapchat streak and let’s never stop! You’re so cute and cool and smart and you helped me go broke with all the book buying but without it, I wouldn’t have gotten ACOWAR at 50% off?? Like wow! Thank you for being awesome!
To @mythologicalnet , vixensnet , and mermaidntw I want to thank these Networks for accepting me! It’s great honour to be part of your networks too!
For the rest, I’d love to thank the following people for their blogs that help me build this one.

((blacklist #camsffif u don’t want this on ya dash))
I recently hit a follower goal of mine, and what better way to celebrate than to give a shout out to my favorite people? Some of us have been mutuals since the beginning, and others have just found their way into my life. I adore each and every one of you. Thank you for putting up with my mess of a blog. And, well, me.
I wanted to write individual messages for all of you, but that would be fairly time-consuming. So, here is a message meant for everyone on this ff:
I am nothing short of ecstatic when I come online and you’re online too. All of you are so full of a love and warmth unique to your soul, and that is such a rare thing. Whether I know you personally or we are merely mutuals, I can tell how amazing you are. One of the main reasons you are on this list is because you are amazing. You are amazing for being brave enough to be yourself, for your kindness, for your humor, and for the beauty you possess inside and out. I see it in your posts, tags, and interactions. I see it in the ways you present yourselves. I hope all of you find more joy and love than misery and hate in your lives. You deserve at least that much. All my love, Tahera 💖
Without further ado, here are my all-time favorite blogs (run by the loveliest people…if I left you out, I apologize! It was not intentional):
(Bold for my best friend, Topaz, whom I’ve known for almost five years now. I’ll never leave your side, just as you’ll never leave mine. I love you so, so much.)
(Bold and italicized for my girlfriend, Aurélie, who is truly the best thing that’s ever been mine. My love, the world has been infinitely better and brighter ever since we met. I love you more than the moon loves the sun.)
