i need to finish reading this

                               It’s Booktube-A-Thon 2017!

Here’s my Booktube-A-Thon TBR for the event that takes place July 24th-July 30th! I can’t wait. What’s on your TBR?

Watch the video challenges that @arielbissett picked out here! :D

Read a book with a person on the cover.

  • for this challenge, I’m going to be reading Eliza and Her Monsters by  Francesca Zappia. In the cover, there’s a girl holding two of her web comic characters. (-:

Read a hyped book.

  • I’m going to be reading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. I feel like the entire world has read this series or at least seen the movies, but I haven’t. I also need to read it for school so two birds one stone! (I’ll probably audiobook this to be honest.)

Finish a book in one day.

  • I’m going to pick a short book for this one and that’s Love and Misadventure by Lang Leav. I read The Universe of Us by her and I absolutely loved it. Some of my favorite modern poetry <3

Read about a character that is very different from you.

  • I decided on Six of Crows because Kaz is definitely different from me but I love him! I’m less than half way through this book but I really want to finish it soon so I’m going to finish it off during this week.

Finish a book completely outdoors.

  • I don’t think I’m going to do this one because I live in Florida and it’s currently way too hot and bugs are everywhere. But as a filler, I’m going read There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins!

Read a book you bought because of the cover.

  • I’m going to read We Are The Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson. I have no idea what this book is about but it’s so talked about and I am in love with the cover. I mean seriously, it’s beautiful.

Lastly, read 7 books.

  • I think I might read Seconds by Brian Lee O’Malley for this one! 


What’re you going to read? Do you participate? Let me know. I’m excited :D

“Jo, we need to talk,” Leonard said poking his head into her bedroom.

“I’m in the middle of reading something.” She gestured toward the PADD she was holding.

“Finish the chapter then come downstairs.”

She nodded and he walked away.

Twenty minutes later she came downstairs and plopped down on the opposite side of the couch from him. “What did you want to talk to me about?” She looked at him expectantly.

Leonard took a deep breath and let it out slowly. “I’m coming to terms with that you are in fact growing up and with that comes new experiences…”

“Oh, god. Daddy, you aren’t about to give me ‘the talk’, are you?”

“Yes. You’re 13. It’s time we had the basic discussion about it. You have that permission slip I have to sign for school.”

“It’s fine. We’re talking about it in school.” Joanna started picking at her nails.

“That doesn’t mean you and I don’t have to talk about.”

She frowned and sighed, slumping down into the couch.

Keep reading

I’m packing and I just got really angry when I realized I don’t have room in my bag for more than three books and sulked for five minutes sitting on the floor before actually narrowing down the books I wanna read and then remembering there’s a huge bookstore where I’m going and I need to bring even less if I wanna buy a book there and spent three more minutes sulking and then got a glass of water instead of actually finishing packing even though I’m leaving in two hours and if that doesn’t tell you a lot about who I am and where my priorities lie I don’t know what will.

So I found your masterlist earlier today at 12 am so I started reading, I didn't realize that it was 2 am and I just decided to not sleep and finish your masterlist. BIG MISTAKE. I THOUGHT IT WAS FRIDAY YESTERDAY AND I SLEPT AT 4 AND NEEDED TO WAKE UP FOR WORK AT 5 AND I WAS SO SLEEPY AND COULDN'T FOCUS

OMG NONNY CHAN!!! ARE YOU OK??!?! IM SO SORRY!!! 
Thank you for reading honey but your health comes first- I’m so sorry you had to go to work tired and unable to focus. My only hope was that the readings were worth your efforts and pain. 
May you be fast asleep and dreaming about the beautiful people in Mystic Messenger honey.

i know im not really active on here still, im trying to get to finish asks as best as i can, but im always drawing other things. i need the right motivation to finish an ask and not have it look crappy.

so here’s a question i have for you guys-

would you prefer:

-frequent, less detailed asks

-less frequent, detailed asks (like a complete drawing, shading and everything)

-a mix of both?

i also wanted to say I’m still very into this AU (and the series)! there also isn’t many asks (i have like 2 or 3) in my inbox and im not getting a lot of activity which is a big factor in me not having the right motivation! thanks for reading.

we were all forced to read “classics” in school so reblog and put the one you actually ended up liking a lot and the one you can’t fucking stand in the tags

my fave is Lord of the Flies and I ironically enough want to burn every copy of Fahrenheit 451. trash

My favorite scene from “With Good Intentions” by @anirrahn PLEASE go read and give many kudos and comments on it! :))

(Sorry if its hard to see some of the panels, there is NO way I’d post each one individually lol)

turn off the lights // panic! at the disco

I’ve always loved writing since I was little. I love writing stories, articles, poems, but I never kept a diary because I think it made me feel obligated to write everyday. Every time I started one, the entry would turn out something like “went to the market today. I really wanted to buy a toy but just did yesterday. Anyway, I think Brittany lied to me about her dating Jem”

Then I started high school and, well, let’s just say I needed to get things out somewhere before I become my own version of 2007’s Britney Spears. A journal is actually a really great getaway from all the sickening routines. You get to be entirely you, and nobody will say anything about what you think and what you write. Not to mention it’s very therapeutic and helps keeping your sanity.

I know a lot of people who want to start a journal but are not sure what to write or where to start from. So that is why, ladies and gents, I’m here to give you a lil help on that matter.

1.       Be As Blunt, Angry, or Happy

You’re fighting with your friend and you think they’re stupid? Jot that down. You think your math score doesn’t do you justice? Write about it. You got a new set of Crayolas and are very excited about it? Write it down too. It does feel a little weird at first, I did feel that too, but trust me you would feel a lot better and relieved after you finish an entry. Remember, nobody’s going to read it so if you didn’t have the chance to punch that one friend in the face, do it now. Mentally. Better to stay out of jail, right?

2.       No Schedule Needed

You don’t need to write an entry every single day. I never do mine regularly, but I try to keep it at least once or twice a week to make sure that I don’t leave it way behind. However, DO NOT go through 2 weeks without a single entry, the longer you don’t write, the more you feel like you can go miles without touching it. This would beat the purpose of starting a journal in the first place.

3.       Get Creative

You can be as creative and wild in your journal! Find some inspiration from youtube, tumblr, or pinterest and splatter some paints. It doesn’t have to be neat or have a deep meaning, just do some art when you DO feel inspired. You can also attach some memories like amusement park tickets, postcards, stamps, and many other things.

4.       It’s Not Meant to be “Photogenic”

Or you can make it as photogenic as you want it to be. Just remember that not every single page has to be colorful, has lots of drawings and Shakespeare’s poems on it. You see these journaling accounts all around tumblr and think “how do they make it so artsy?”. I’m pretty sure even those accounts have silly drawings and memes somewhere between those pages. When you start a journal, some pages might only have words upon words on white paper, some pages might have unfinished sketches. Don’t (just) do it for aesthetic. Do it because it takes off your negative vibes and brings positivity toward you.

5. Just Start.

Seriously. The more you procrastinate, the more you’ll think ‘nah I don’t need it anyway’. The ultimate guide is to start somewhere.

Whatever you write down, they don’t have to be interesting or mind-blowing. Some people think their lives are boring and not journal-worthy. Well, I write about Starbucks’ caramel frappe and trips to the nearest market while all these people are writing about their freaking road trip to another planet. No lives are boring. There will always be something to write about. If you’re still having a writer’s block, then I gotcha. Here’s a list of things you can put on your journal:

-Dream you had last night
-Letters to somebody
-A letter to your younger/future self
- Songs you need to download
- Answer your own questions
- 13 reasons why. Ex: Why you should get over that one ex, Why you love your best friend, etc
- Things you’ve learned today ( I do this a lot. It’s a great way to self-exam)
- Favorite things
-Things you regret buying (also a great self-examination)
- New words + definitions
- Morning/midnight ramblings
- Reviews of books/movies
- What would you be doing in 10 years
- Write about your Hogwarts’ house or MBTI personality

Sooo
This might not be a huge help, but I love sharing things and I find journaling to be very helpful for a lot of things.

Do you guys keep a journal? If so, what do you usually write about?

nori-wings  asked:

Maaaak, do you like shoujo? ♥ (I think you mentioned it to me once, but I'm not sure) if you do, what are your favorite anime/mangas?

LONG POST AHEAD!

I do like shoujo :3c  ♥ ♥ ♥ i’ve loved shoujo ever since Cardcaptor Sakura ~ (that was one of my fave childhood animes  ♥)

here’s a list of my favorite ones (so far, in no particular order):

ANIME:

1. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun / My Little Monster
the theme song is sooooooo catchy and adorable and so rainbow-y! there’s a maka look alike! (she’s in my header btw), and haru is just the sweetest dorkiest anime character. i have a soma au for this. and there is a love triangle. i need a season 2. i am dying. save me. this has been one of my favorite shoujo animes for a long time ♥

2. Kyoukai no Kanata / Beyond the Boundary
it’s kind of not a typical shoujo, because it has a lot of action in it- but the art & animation style is just #artgoals and #gorgeous and the characters are so lovable i could scream. also i have not watched the movies yet but i would so love to watch them soon

3. Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji / Wolf Girl and Black Prince
i honestly would recommend the manga (since it’s better than the anime), but i love the ending song???? it’s so catchy and i will make a soma animation for it one day. this was honestly the inspiration for my mak persona! i only recommend it if you read a bit of the manga and want to see it animated

4. Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso / Your Lie in April
if you’ve seen tumblr posts and gifs about this and know a thing or two about the story, then you know why this is my fave. the art and animation style is AHMAZING, the story is sooooo good??? (feels though im warning you)
the ending could have been a little bit slower? but it still wraps up the anime very well, it gives all the characters closure. (did i mention the characters are all lovable too??). also i want to animate the theme song for soma au not gonna lie

5. Akagami no Shirayukihime / Snow White with the Red Hair
the ones who produced this was the same animation studio that handled Soul Eater!! (studio bones)!! girl power tbh shirayuki (the red haired girl) is such an independent girl ♥ i love her.
also there’s a white haired boy who i think you’ll love cuz he is already one of my cinnamon rolls. freaking potential SoMa au i tell u (there are 2 seasons but i wish for another one) (also i love shirazenobi) (casually tags @l0chn3ss)

6. Nisekoi / False Love
soul’s VA is the same as the male main character’s VA. nuff said.
no but seriously i love every single character here. it’s the only harem i would dare to watch. it’s so funny and light-hearted and the plot will keep having twists. it’s really fun to watch. @l0chn3ss@flamedork and i made a SoMa au for it last soma week :D the anime ending had something missing to it, but i believe you’ll still enjoy it nonetheless ♥

7. Nagi no Asukara / A Lull in the Sea
OKAY I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TBH out of all of the shoujo animes i listed as my fave, this one takes the cake. i actually did not expect any of the twists, and the story goes really deep. the ending could have gone better tbh (im so salty about how it ended too quickly), but the characters and how everyone interacts, it just makes you keep wanting to watch it D:
(plus! the art style is adorable im crying about it. the animation of the waves and the sea– and the opening and ending themes are soooo cool ♥ )

8. Cardcaptor Sakura
oldie but goodie! there’s also a reboot coming up (or a sequel i think? based on the new Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Cards manga- which is so amazing for people who love nostalgic shows) idk if i can say any more about it, but it’s a magical girl story! and i love every single character. syaoran is my blushy-blush child.

9. Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru / This Art Club Has a Problem!
this was one of the most recent i’ve watched and it’s totally not like all the others. mainly because… it’s just so random? it’s a school anime about an art club and i just love the characters and the randomness of it all. i totally ship these two who are just so cute together but the guy is too dense. eurghhh
(this anime has a manga but i havent read it so i cant say much about it)

10. Tamako Market
this is one of the cutest shoujo i’ve ever seen. oh my gosh- you will love tamako. for sure. also! the animation is so fluid and adorable! the opening will make u puke rainbows bc of the cuteness, and the ending is so aesthetic, every scene would be worthy for a gifset. the story is different for a school type anime (it’s more centered on the marketplace tamako lives in) and it revolves around all the characters and their development and relationship to tamako :3

11. Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai (i’ve memorized this anime title) / We Still Don’t Know the Name of the Flower We Saw that Day (or in shorter terms: AnoHana)
this anime is definitely one of the best ones. it will make you cry. produced by A-1 pictures, the same ones who animated this prized piece. you will definitely cry. it’s best if you watch for yourself if you havent watched it yet ;w;
p.s. i love menma so much hrhrrrr


MANGA:

1. Hirunaka no Ryuusei / Daytime Shooting Star
the art style of this manga is my aesthetic tbh. the characters and the love triangle is my fave part– for me, ending could have been less rushed tho (i will fight for mamura) (just a warning, there’s a teacher-student thing going on)

JUST LOOK AT THE ART STYLE DAMN

2. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun / My Little Monster
yeah this has a manga too! i love the characters and the love triangle too (you can see i have a type), and the art style is so lit, you’re gonna love it. i don’t remember if i loved the ending, but yeah it’s completed as well

3. Taiyou no Ie / House of the Sun
i don’t remember much of the story anymore (since it was such a long time ago since i last read it), but the art style is so cute it will give u cavities. it’s kind of weird since the couple may seem like siblings, but eh, they’re just really close childhood friends. if you like domestic fluff, you will love this.

4. Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji / Wolf Girl and Black Prince
i basically love the character development. the art style also gets better over time and the story so far is going through so many twists. i have not caught up too much so pls no spoilers :“)

5. Akagami no Shirayukihime / Snow White with the Red Hair
yeah this has a manga too! right now the manga is still ongoing so it’s not too late to catch up :”) i also need to catch up though hehe

6. Nisekoi / False Love
it also has a manga!! if the anime is super good, then the manga is so much better. it handles so much character development and i seriously got addicted to it the more i kept reading. unfortunately it’s finished (i wanted to see more heh), but the ending is kept with good closure for each character (for a harem, that’s a blessing), but it also depends on who you’re betting on for raku ;w;

7. Cardcaptor Sakura
honestly im not even sure how many chapters there are, but the new Clear Cards manga is still ongoing, so there’s something to look forward to :D


(not sure if i should add this but i want to talk about it :>)

FILMS:

1. Kimi No Na Wa / Your Name
have i talked about this enough? no? well im gonna talk about it anyway

it’s so amazing. i literally screamed all throughout (well maybe not really).
the animation. the voice acting. the characters. the designs. the music. the aesthetic. the story. THE STORY AGH you will cry. or at least be moved.

2. Koe no Katachi / A Silent Voice
this movie gave me a great hype tbh. even though the ending could have been a bit more thought out (as you can see i have such a high standards for endings), the story and the feels totally made up for it. it deals with a more serious topic than Kimi No Na Wa but it’s worth the watch esp if you like crying good animation and friendship-type shoujos (but u will have feels. i promise).

It was this: laughing senselessly into each other’s skin, playing until it was abruptly no longer play, and Gansey stopped himself with his mouth perilously close to hers, and Blue stopped herself with her belly pressed close to his.

It was this: Gansey saying, I like you an awful lot, Blue Sargent.

anonymous asked:

Peter Parker and soulmate being able to hear eachothers thoughts. So soulmates can communicate before they meet/until they are ready to meet.

You smiled softly as your attention was stolen from the French essay in front of you by the now familiar voice of your soulmate in your mind.

“Eliza Schuyler was the wife of….of…..”

“Alexander Hamilton,” you thought, chuckling as you hummed the tune without meaning to.

“Thanks (Nickname)!” came his voice again. “This history essay’s killing me.”

“Try French,” you thought bitterly, glaring at the half-filled sheet of paper in front of you.

“Non merci,” he replied cheekily. You giggled.

“Need any more help with history?” you asked. “I know Alexander Hamilton like I know my own mind.”

“I know you do, you were singing that musical in your head all day yesterday.”

“Sorry! My friends get annoyed at it too.”

“Don’t be sorry, it was kinda cute.” His voice sounded shy now, and you bit your lip at how adorable he sounded.

You’d been able to hear Peter’s thoughts for a few months now, and every day you could feel yourself falling more in love with him. He was so funny and nerdy, he listened to all your rants and worries, and he was always there if you needed him.

“Hey Pete?”

“Hmm?”

“Do you think we could meet up soon? I…I really like you.”

The silence you were greeted with scared you, and all the horror stories you’d read about soulmates not loving each other or people being assigned the wrong soulmate came rushing to the front of your mind.

“I really like you too, (Y/N). We could meet up today? Unless you want to finish your French work, because I don’t mind when-,”

“Today would be great,” you thought, a grin spreading across your face as you shoved your work away from you.

“When and where?”
