Sooo, i got my copy of King’s Cage but i am slightly.. kind of.. not HAPPY. I am happy but not HAPPY because this cover is not what i signed up for :’D
I, of course, ordered the right version when i picked it up bc it just wouldn’t go with the rest of my RQ books and we can’t have that, not at all!!!
Now @vaveyard, could it be that different covers are available at different times ?
The position of the sun in the sky
told me it was about 4 o’clock in the afternoon. Or maybe I checked my phone
and that’s what it said. Either way, I’d been camped out there a while. I kicked my feet, feeling the first burst
of April’s warmth across my skin, and craned my neck as I saw his familiar
figure break away from the crowd.
“Hey,” I said simply and he stopped,
glancing over at me.
He smirked a little. “Hm. And I was
starting to think you’d completely disappeared.”
“I pulled a bit of a hit and run,
“Well, you certainly did run.” he
agreed. I got to my feet and squared up in front of him. He
reached over, flicking the ends of my hair. “You cut your hair.”
“Yeah,” I said. “Sort of doing that
whole ‘new year, new me, thing’.” “You’re a few months late.” he noted
and I nodded along. “I’m leaving, Klein.” “Mm. It’s been a month since I saw
you. You were sort of already gone.” “Sort of,” I conceded. “But this
time I mean for good. I’m leaving the city.” “So, why are you telling me?” he
I lowered my eyes, “Well, you told
me if I ever figured out, that I should let you know.”
“Novel idea. I guess you’re going to run off and be a superhero after all.” He smiled, reaching up to pinch my cheek. “Send me a letter from the other side, Buttercup.”
I wrapped my fingers around his wrist and he paused, sliding curious eyes to mine. “Come with me,” I whispered.
His smirk deepened. “Now why would I do that?” “It can be our project. Yours and mine. I mean… mostly mine.” My smile broke and I laughed, watching him straighten.
“Maybe you’re onto something, there.” “Yeah? Well, you could always stay here. I’m sure the roaches like the company.” “Very true. After all, with Andy back, my coffee making skills have much improved.” “We can’t have that, now can we?” “Certainly not,” he said easily. I kept smiling. “Come. Be my Bonny.” “I’ve always wanted to be a cigar-smoking gun moll. It’s a pretty bad idea, you know? And pretty fucking stupid.” I laughed. “I’m sure it’s not the worst thing we’ve ever done.”
I feel like “ruin” was an aptly chosen title for book three of The Faithful and The Fallen because that ending shredded my heart and left it in gods damned ruins and I hate Gwynne for making me feel the way I am right now jfc
“I have a plan,” I explained. “I
bought a car.” “Your plan was to buy a car?” “No.” I huffed. “My plan is to drive
the car!” “Oh yeah?” He smirked. “Where to?” “Everywhere,” I replied. “An
indefinite roadtrip.” “Sounds reckless.” “Maybe.” “And why are you roadtripping
I rubbed my arm, nervously. “I’m
starting a new project. Writing is all I’ve ever been good at. All I’ve ever
wanted to do. That… and save the world. This is how I’m going to do it. I’m
going to meet people, talk to them, collect their stories.”
“Hm. And how is that going to save them?”
“It’s not… but… Maybe when we
recognize that we’re not all strangers. When we connect to that human part of
each other, maybe we can stop hurting each other so much. And… that’s a good
So one day I was reading PercyJackson, book 3 of the first series, the Titans Curse, and it came to the section of the Hoover Dam, when it came to the part where they were high off of dehydration, they were cracking jokes about the dam,
‘The dam snack bar’
I know you guys know that.
I was laughing and for some fucking reason I thought it was funnier than it really was
And I continued laughing.
I LAUGHED SO HARD I HAD AN ASTHMA ATTACK AND WAS TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL.
When I could finally breath again the doctor asked why I had started laughing so hard.
Remember that section of the book
I continued to laugh…
AND MY DOCTOR WAS LIKE: WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING???
AND ALL I WHISPERED WAS
‘I need to find the dam water fountain’
WHICH LEAD ME TO LAUGH EVEN HARDER
WHICH CAUSED ANOTHER FUCKING ATTACK AND SO I HAD TO STAY OVER NIGHT AND MY CHESt STARTED HURTING AND
I just heard that American fans of Skulduggery Pleasant only have the first three books, is that true?! Because if it is then you don’t have a resolution to the cliff- hanger and you don’t know who Darquesse is and you don’t know who Lord Vile really is…. I’m so sorry for you.
