“my mother was a cruel and frivolous woman who tried to BURN her sister alive”, 
“my step-mother hates me and sold off my LIMB”, 
“my aunt also tried to BURN me alive”
“my mother is DEAD and i’m having to give her crown to my ARCH ENEMY”, 
“I’d give ANYTHING for my grandmere but now she has been EATEN alive in front of me”, 
“my mother has had her entire family taken away from her and now I am 22 years old and a mutant and oh god she probably despises me… mummy i love you oh no she’s DEAD because of me”,

“my mummy is DEAD, and now my step-mummy has KILLED MY DADDY and SCARRED me and is cruel and EVIL to me and millions of people every day and now I GUESS she wants to KILL ME TOO”.

Konn Torin x the Palace Gardens

So Konn Torin is like really possessive of the palace gardens.

In Cinder, every time the gardens are mentioned, Torin suddenly appears.

Torin offers to give Levana a tour of the gardens.

At the ball, Kai and Cinder are walking towards the gardens to talk, and Torin comes to stop them.

So then in Cress, when Priya suggests to Kai that he should find a hobby, maybe in the gardens.

I could just imagine Torin’s face.

No.

Those are his gardens.

And so naturally that’s why he let Cinder kindap Kai.

And subsequently took control of the Eastern Commonwealth.

Revenge.

For the gardens.

YA LIT MEME: 10 SERIES OR BOOKS

THE LUNAR CHRONICLES by Marissa Meyer  ( 2/10 )

soon, the whole world would be searching for her - linh cinder. a deformed cyborg with a missing foot. a lunar with a stolen identity. a mechanic with no one to run to, nowhere to go. but they would be looking for a ghost. ”  ( book #1: cinder )

Cress and Thorne sketch from Chapter 55 in “Cress” (The Lunar Chronicles)

I just love the scene where Cress and Thorne are on the rooftop, where she’s guiding his arms and he’s completely trusting her non-verbal commands and they both won’t go down without a fight.

Date #3

Claude: Our fiery ginger’s here! How’s life, Marissa?

Marissa: Very nice, but I’m so tired! That flight has stressed me out so much, you know, they didn’t even have aromatized napkins there, and don’t let me start about the programs they were showing on TV…

Claude: Hey, it’s alright. You’re here and must be ready for work.

Marissa: Yeah… sorry. Sure I am, Claude, you shouldn’t doubt me.
