i really like this trilogy

I had time to kill on a train ride and decided I’d start the Foxhole Court… I’m pretty pumped about it so far

Okay here goes! My name’s Kalie, I’m 27, I’m from British Columbia, Canada! I’m married and I have two cats. This blog is my biggest hobby, but next is probably reading. 

My favourite authors (top two favourite books from each) are: 

  • Maritta Wolff (Whistle Stop and About Lyddy Thomas)
  • Norman Collins (London Belongs to Me and Love in Our Time)
  • Patrick Hamilton (Twenty Thousand Streets Under the Sky and Hangover Square)
  • Willa Cather (My Antonia and O Pioneers!)
  • F Scott Fitzgerald (The Beautiful and Damned and Tender is the Night)
  • Kurt Vonnegut (God Bless You Mr Rosewater and Breakfast of Champions)
  • Trollope (The Way We Live Now and the Palliser series)  
  • Steinbeck (The Winter of Our Discontent and East of Eden)
  • Zola (L'Assommoir and Nana)
  • Dostoevsky (Crime and Punishment and The Idiot)

I also really like Peyton Place by Grace Metalious, An American Tragedy and Sister Carrie by Theodore Dreiser, London Fields by Martin Amis, The Bonfire of the Vanities by Tom Wolfe, The Jungle by Upton Sinclair, The Millstone by Margaret Drabble, The Best of Everything by Rona Jaffe, The House of Mirth and The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton, The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers and everything by Nancy Mitford and Dominick Dunne. I have a tattoo of Behemoth from The Master and Margarita! 

I’m not a big fan of historical fiction but I really liked Ken Follet’s Kingsbridge and Century Trilogies. 

My favourite TV shows are It’s Always Sunny and Curb Your Enthusiasm. 

My favourite podcasts are My Brother My Brother and Me, and Uhh Yeah dude.

Ubisoft: Ezio Trilogy Remaster!

Everyone else:

My Ezio Trilogy loving ass:

Me: so how do you think the ST will go?

Friend: well, I think everyone will die.

Me:…. like… like Rogue One? That probably won’t…

Friend: well, everyone except Finn.

Me: ?! POOR FINN!!! OH MAN THE SURVIVORS GUILT!!

Friend: and Poe.

Me: …?

Friend: then they’ll get married and live happily ever after now that the universe is free of both the first order AND the Resistance.

Far down the stretch of the main deck, through the tangle of rope and rigging, I saw Mal. He was flanked by Corporalki guards, but his focus was trained on me. He’d been watching, waiting for me to turn. I stepped forward. The Darkling seized my arm.

“No farther,” he said.

“Let me talk to him,” I begged. I hated the desperation in my voice.

“Not a chance. You two have a bad habit of acting like fools and calling it heroic.

Really hoping Ronan has a mysterious girl cousin (blue's age) that he never talks about but shows up in Henrietta to shake things up in the new series

I have high hopes for this Hennessy character personally! We also know Stief is fusing the dreamer trilogy with her street racing girl gang novel so I think we can expect a lot of badass girls from the dreamer trilogy (pleaseletthembegaypleaseletthembegay).

"Metias lives" Scenario

- Metias fights off and survives Thomas’s attack, but with a bad injury (bullet grazed the side of his arm, losing blood).

- He manages to get into a Jeep and drive back to the apartment after almost crashing into a light post.

- Rushes in and tells June (who was just about to leave for a run) that they need to go. Now.

- June’s confused as hell and scared because of Metias’s injury but Metias says he’ll explain later.

- Before they can leave Commander Jameson, Thomas, and a squadron of soldiers appears and arrests both of them.

- Metias ends up passing out and Thomas makes them take him to get treated (Thomas is like regretting everything).

- June is offered a deal by Commander Jameson: bring in day (who they know was at the hospital) and get pardoned or she and Metias will get executed for treason.

- June obviously agrees, the events of Legend happen, and Day, June, and Metias end up escaping in the chaos of Day’s execution.
