i really love these books and so should you

Your opinion on mermaids

Very cool

When I was younger I loved this book (and its series) called The Tail of Emily Windsnap by Liz Kessler, about a half-mermaid, half-human girl. Looking up Liz Kessler’s name online led me to this writing site for kids called Stories from the Web, where I wrote a lot of stuff and found some really awesome stories that were definitely not written by eleven-year-olds, and that was probably my first time posting things online

Also I hand-wrote letters to Liz and she hand-wrote letters back to me every. Single. Time

It was like the greatest thing ever

I continued to read her books waaaaay past the age when I probably should have stopped, until I got to one where I was so disappointed in the writing that I quit and felt really bad about it

So there is my cool mermaid story

I also like the mermaids from the Spiderwick Chronicles field guide (tbh I love everything in that field guide)

Seriously if you like fantasy creatures you ought to look at this book

hula-hoopist  asked:

(If you have the time) you should do a book rec list!!

$Definitely!! I’m just going to include the ones that I’ve read that have resonated with me personally, so please feel free to message me for specific recs (Scifi, romance, wlw, etc) and i’ll look into making a more refined list for you.  Reading is truly such a positive outlet, regardless of age, and I really hope there is something on here for everyone to love as much as I did.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz.  Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be. 

This book is so important.  It follows two Mexican-America boys, through the 80s in Texas, and at the very heart of all of it, is a love so pure and intense, it made me genuinely choke up with how intimate it was. (Try not to fall in love with Dante, I dare you, you will fail, just as hard as Ari)


Girl Mans Up  by M-E Gerard. All Pen wants is to be the kind of girl she’s always been. So why does everyone have a problem with it? They think the way she looks and acts means she’s trying to be a boy—that she should quit trying to be something she’s not. If she dresses like a girl, and does what her folks want, it will show respect. If she takes orders and does what her friend Colby wants, it will show her loyalty.But respect and loyalty, Pen discovers, are empty words. Old-world parents, disintegrating friendships, and strong feelings for other girls drive Pen to see the truth—that in order to be who she truly wants to be, she’ll have to man up.

Girl Mans Up is such a great book about gender identity for queer girls.  Pen is amazing narrator, and having it in the first person perspective is perfect for seeing just how frustrating it is to be a girl that doesn’t fit the gender role she’s expected to. (She also has a girlfriend who she stays with in the entire book and they have a wonderful relationship, no one dies 10/10)


Whatever: or how junior year became totally f$@ked by S.J. Goslee @pantstomatchJunior year is about to start. Here’s what Mike Tate knows:His friends are awesome and their crappy garage band is a great excuse to drink cheap beer. Rook Wallace is the devil. The Lemonheads rock. And his girlfriend Lisa is the coolest. Then Lisa breaks up with him, which makes Mike only a little sad, because they’ll stay friends and he never knew what to do with her boobs anyway. But when Mike finds out why Lisa dumped him, it blows his mind. And worse―he gets elected to homecoming court.With a standout voice, a hilariously honest view on sex and sexuality, and enough f-bombs to make your mom blush, S.J. Goslee’s debut YA novel Whatever. is a fresh, modern take on the coming-out story.

I’m honestly 100% certain there isn’t a summary that could do Whatever justice. I read this book because another librarian I work with suggested it to me, and I haven’t laughed out loud so much at a book since the Georgia Nicholson Diaries.  Mike is a bisexual teen who frequently doesn’t shower and hangs out with the most endearing group of straight boys you could possibly conjure up.  This book also has incredibly refreshing male/female friendships and the sweetest sibling relationship between Mike and his eccentric little sister, Rosie.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who’s ever been chosen.That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.Half the time, Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he starts something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around, wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here–it’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.

It’s Harry Potter but funnier and Harry and Draco end up together!! Actually, it’s Simon and Baz, but honestly it’s what all of our thirteen year old selves were starved for, like junkies of fanfiction.net, just looking for a fix.  I’m always a little hesitant of YA romance novels with vampires (For good reason, I think we’re all a little jaded still), but Baz is my Favorite Vampire™.  He’s funny and sarcastic and moody and just a little bit lonely, the poor thing. 


The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater @maggie-stiefvaterEvery year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them–until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her.His name is Gansey, a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher who notices many things but says very little.For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She doesn’t believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore

This sort of sounds like a lovey dovey romance novel right? It’s not. There’s magic, and psychics, and dead Welsh Kings (this medieval lit major was shook), and the most fleshed out characters I’ve read in a series in about 8,000 years. I didn’t think I could fall in love with a group of spoiled prep school boys, and neither does the main character Blue, but here she is with her four husbands. 


Timekeeper by Tara Sim. In an alternate Victorian world controlled by clock towers, a damaged clock can fracture time–and a destroyed one can stop it completely. It’s a truth that seventeen-year-old clock mechanic Danny Hart knows all too well; his father has been trapped in a Stopped town east of London for three years. Though Danny is a prodigy who can repair not only clockwork, but the very fabric of time, his fixation with staging a rescue is quickly becoming a concern to his superiors. And so they assign him to Enfield, a town where the tower seems to be forever plagued with problems. Danny’s new apprentice both annoys and intrigues him, and though the boy is eager to work, he maintains a secretive distance. Danny soon discovers why: he is the tower’s clock spirit, a mythical being that oversees Enfield’s time. Though the boys are drawn together by their loneliness, Danny knows falling in love with a clock spirit is forbidden, and means risking everything he’s fought to achieve.
But when a series of bombings at nearby towers threaten to Stop more cities, Danny must race to prevent Enfield from becoming the next target or he’ll not only lose his father, but the boy he loves, forever.

I didn’t think steampunk was my thing, but I see maybe I was wrong.  Or maybe I just really love this one particular steampunk book.  Danny is so full of moxie and sarcasm and nervous sweating and tea it’s easy to see why Colton falls for him.  This book also tends to tackle really heavy subjects without you realizing its done just that.  

I Love You

Prompt:
You are a Malfoy that doesn’t agree with your family’s beliefs and morals.

Requested by: No

Written by: Head Honcho - Zoe

Reader: Female

Warning: Battle of Hogwarts

A/N: I should probably take a break from writing Tom Holland imagines… so here. I’ve had this idea for a while now but I haven’t written it for some reason.

Also, I know we knew that the Malfoys didn’t really want to be Death Eaters when it came towards the end of the books, especially Draco it seemed like, but you have a stronger opinion and you always stand up for what you believe in, no matter who it is against.

======

“Draco!” You hear your father call, breaking the tense silence. “(Y/N)!” He soon calls after. All heads turn to either your brother who is standing on the stairs, or you who is standing with the Golden Trio and part of the Weasley family. 

You feel a few familiar gazes go upon you and you just hang your head.

“Draco… (Y/N).” You hear the plea in your father’s voice and the tears start to build up in your eyes.

“Draco, (Y/N).” Your mother’s soft voice call causing your head to slowly come up. “Come.” She commands, you swallow the lump in your throat. You turn your head and look up to be met with a watery pair of dark hazelnut eyes that you always easily get captured in.

The usual happy glimmer in his eyes is replaced with the dull pain of loose. His bright, orange hair that contrast with his bright smiling eyes is gone. In their place takes dusty, dirty hair and defeat.

You only look away when you hear the clack of shoes against the sharp pavement. All eyes follow your brother as he walks past all his peers to join the other side… the side that caused the destruction of their beloved school and the wizarding world.

“Oh, well done, Draco.” Voldemort praises him and wraps his arms around the boy. “Well done.” He lets go of the awkward hug and sends him to your parents.

“(Y/N).” Your mother calls to you, her arm slung around her son’s torso. Your eyes meet her pleading ones. You send her a frown before turning to look back up at George’s eyes. All the emotions from earlier are still there but the fear of loose is emitting the most.

George has already lost a bunch of loved ones during the battle today including his brother. And now he might lose the second most important person to him to the people who took the others away from him.

You start to cry as you turn your gaze back towards your family, especially when you see your brother mouth ‘please’. You just shake your head back and him, responding with a tearful ‘sorry’.

“I love you, George.” You confess, slipping your hand into his rough one.

“I love you, too, (Y/N).” He shakily whispers back, pulling you against his chest and wrapping his arms around you. “I love you so much.” He presses a kiss to your temple while tears flow down his cheeks.

You clutch onto George as you watch your parents give you a disappointed look and your brother gives you a sad one. As much as you love your family, the stuff that they did for the Dark Lord something you could never forgive.

Maybe in the future, you could see yourself reconnecting with Draco but for now, everything is still fresh.

anonymous asked:

rfa + v in a hunger games au where they are from the same district as mc? like would they form an alliance with mc, try to kill them like everyone else, etc?

okay but i really love this request even though i haven’t read the books is years oops hopefully this is fine

Zen

  • So he’s definitely the most athletic of the RFA, so he’s got that going for him
  • He would team up with you without hesitation considering he fell in love with MC on the first day in all the routes z e n keep yourself together
  • Anyway you should consider yourself hella lucky because he is willing to do anything to keep the two of you safe, even killing the other tributes
  • He would probably be one of the most likely to kill to keep you safe
  • I could even see him killing other tributes not out of self defense so you could get out of it quicker
  • If it were down to the two of you at the end, I think that he would sacrifice himself so you could live
  • He might be a little hesitant about it, but in the end he would do it 

Yoosung

  • Honestly he’s probably one of the first one’s to get killed even though that makes me so sad to say/think
  • But if he does make it past the cornucopia he is constantly worried
  • His tactic is to hide from everyone else and hope they all end up killing each other
  • I doubt he would form an alliance with you though, he doesn’t trust anyone, and if he didn’t know you at all before this he would probably think that you’re just tying to trick him and kill him later
  • Considering the environment that you’re in, you can’t really blame him
  • Even if he makes it past the cornucopia, I doubt he would last that long
  • Hiding will only get him so far, and he doesn’t have any survival skills

Jaehee

  • She’d definitely get farther that Yoosung, but she wouldn’t be in the last three
  • Imo she’d probably lose 6-4?
  • She’s non confrontational so as soon as it starts, she runs as far away as she can
  • She has pretty good self defense skills though so she could last a little while off of that alone isn’t it canon that she knows like karate or something else? but if it isn’t it should be
  • So if you ask her to team up with you, she’d definitely be hesitant, but after a little bit of thinking she decides to trust you
  • Especially if you did something to win her trust, like saving her from someone else

Jumin

  • Honestly? Like Yoosung, I could see him being one of the first one’s to die
  • But if he does make it past the cornucopia, he would last two days at most
  • He has no survival skills and I doubt he’s that athletic
  • I don’t think he’d form an alliance with anyone, because he doesn’t trust anyone lmao
  • He really has no strategy to how he would survive
  • Like he mostly tries to stay away from people but he’s not really good at hiding and that can only work for so long
  • Probably would get a lot of donations (?) just from how beautiful he is
  • I know I would
  • I mean what?

Seven

  • He could probably make it about half way through
  • He has some idea of how to survive, and he like basically the rest of the rfa lmao tries to stay away from everyone else
  • He’d def team up with you if you asked him
  • Strength in numbers, right?
  • Also if you know literally any survival skills he’ll be happy
  • He would especially team up if he knew you before, because not only could he trust you he’s basically been in love with you since you first met

V

  • Ohhhh oh no
  • Can I just make it so that he’s not blind in this?? cause that wouldn’t be fun to write rip
  • Okay so again, like the rest of the rfa, he’s not going to attack anyone directly
  • He would fight if he had to for self defense, but he wouldn’t kill them
  • I could see him being averagely strong? and has pretty good survival skills so he could probably last a while
  • He probably could win if he was willing to kill the other tributes
  • He would definitely team up with you
  • Or really anyone, he doesn’t really want to be in it by himself, if you’re the first person to ask him then yeah
  • Hermione: Go away. I feel like dying.
  • Draco: No fair maiden should die alone. Shall I read to you in your final moments? What story would you like?
  • Hermione: How about the story of the idiotic Slytherin who won't leave the Gryffindor alone?
  • Draco: Oh! I love that story! It has such a happy ending, too—why, the Gryffindor was really feigning her illness in order to get the Slytherin's attention! Who would have guessed it? Such a clever girl. And the bedroom scene is so lovely—it's worth reading through all of their ceaseless banter!
I’d never really fallen in love with a boy who loved me back at the same time. I’d never flirted with someone I barely knew, but I could already feel the energy between us. We clicked as if we belonged together and I always want to be close to you. You messed up my mind and I don’t know how we should go on.
It feels so right to be next to you, but I thought I belonged to someone else.

Just a Little More Time

I blame @regina206 for this…and the fact that I love “Book of Life” and the songs in it…

This is just a like…suuuuper feelsy Rebelcaptain fic that kind of takes place at the end of Rogue One, so obviously HUGE spoiler alert for this!

Also, you really should listen to “Te Amo Y Más” while reading this, or at least while reading the song part. And the best part is it is actually Deigo Luna singing so that is actually how Cassian would sound if he sang! (bonus, you could also listen to the English version, both are lovely <33) Also, I have a headcanon that maybe Cassian’s mom sang this to him when he was a kid, or he heard his parents singing it to each other…it’s just like…his calming song…

Fic below the cut because spoilers are no fun for those who haven’t seen it!

Keep reading

coralscanvas  asked:

So sinces Jiraiya died and sadly didn't continue his Icha Icha series which obviously left Kakashi heart broken how would he react to his S/O attempting to write him a smutty book for a gift?

I love Kakashi so much it hurts sometimes. AND I’M SO SAD BECAUSE I GOT MAYBE LIKE 3 REQUESTS FOR HIM OUT OF 140 I WANNA KMS ;_;

(Kind of) NSFW

♦ Kakashi will be super embarrassed at first. Even if his interest for Jiraiya’s books aren’t a secret to anyone, there’s something about his s/o thinking he loves it so much they need to write a sequel to make him happy that just makes him feel awkward in the “do they think I’m that much of a pervert ?” kind of way.

♦ When the initial embarrassment fades, he’s going to think this is really funny and joke about it around you by openly talking about certain kinks that he thinks you should add in – and by kinks I mean ridiculous thoughts that go through his head at random times and not necessarily something he actually wants to try in the bedroom.

♦ If you actually write some real good sinful shit, you can bet he’s gonna blush the whole time while reading it. And since he’s a kinky little shit himself, he might tease you about it, asking you if you’d like it if he recreated certain scenes with you. If you say yes, he’ll definitely stay true to his words and do it.

♦ He will definitely imagine himself as the main character and you as his love interest the whole time. Be prepared to deal with a horny Kakashi for a few weeks because it’s the only thing he’ll have in mind for a while, even after he finished reading it.

♦ Deep down he’s gonna be so grateful to have such an awesome s/o who, instead of judging him for his sometimes questionable taste in literature, is ready to write an entire smut book for him since his favourite author is no longer here to do it. He’s definitely gonna try to make it back to you at some point.

I know that I’m a few days late, but I’ve been really enjoying all of the “Current Journals” posts inspired by @journaling-junkie ’s January Journal Challenge, so I knew I had to post my own.

My Current Journal/Sketchbooks: (These guys typically go with me almost everywhere I go.)

1. Handlettering Practice Book #2—Guys, this sketchbook is AMAZING. It is a Canson XL Mixed Media 7"x10" sketchbook that has a really solid medium paper weight at 98lbs. I love the paper. I love the size (you can put an even 2" mat around your artwork to fit a standard 11x14 frame; I’m a framer, this is how my brain looks for paper sizes). I love that it’s spiral bound, so it will lay flat while I’m working. 10/10 definitely going to purchase again when this one is full. I should mention that the page on the left in this picture was inspired by a post by @girlfig that made me laugh pretty hard.

2. Bullet Journal—I’m not entirely sure where I got this journal from (I had it for years before I finally found a use for it). It’s not really my style, but the cover is made out of canvas board making it really sturdy and impossible to bend. This journal is where my brain goes to organize itself. I haven’t posted pages from my bullet journal on here because I don’t take the time to decorate the pages; it’s a no-nonsense place for lists, schedules and brainstorming.

3. My Art Journal—This is where my brain goes to unwind and feel free. I had a hard time finding a page that you guys haven’t already seen, so here’s an in-progress page, even though it doesn’t have too much further to go before it’s done.

4. “Adventures in White” Book—If you’ve been following my #adventuresinwhite tag, you know this a sketchbook of solid black paper, and I’ve been experimenting with every sort of white medium that I can get my hands on. The page shown here is, of course, still in progress, but the lettering is being done with a Gellyroll white gel pen and the galaxy on the right was done with General’s Charcoal White pencil.

5. A Small Collection of My Favorite Words & Phrases—It was $3 from Target and all graph paper, which I thought might be nice for lettering practice. The pages themselves are pretty lightweight though, so I don’t want to use most of my pens and markers for fear I’ll ruin their tips. It’s been pencil-only so far and there’s a good chance it will stay that way.

This makes for a happy Emily. 💛

Post your current journals! I know we’re a few days late here, but I love getting a glimpse of how all of my favorite artists operate behind the scenes.

@Saito_Shuka: I got a few messages here and there from people who told me they got the magazine.
Thank you very much!!
Yep! It came out today! The special add-on to B.L.T. March 2017, 
‘Dressed up Seiyuu Special BOOK’, has been released.
I’ll be in your care ( ´›ω‹ ` ) Hehe

my pictures for the pnf fanzine! :D one for summer belongs to you, and the final page spread WOO. looking back now i kinda wish i did more (like, a lot more) but, i still love these regardless

god, it was sooo much fun to draw the gang again, i miss these kids so much ;-;

if you like these you should really check out what the rest of the book has! they managed to get some pnf crew goodies in there too~ *u*

You can’t read throam without loving it, it’s so beatiful that it’s not even about real Ryan and Brendon, when I read it I forget about them, Throam should be a real book and it’s so underrated because the story behind, it is really well structured it’s not even a fanfiction anymore

Thank You!

I just realized I hit a pretty cool follower milestone so I wanted to say ‘Thank you’ to all of you guys who put up with my posts scrolling on your dashboards.

I love writing about Outlander and will absolutely continue to do so, but I’m always open for a challenge and new things too so I thought this could be fun. 

(I’ll try to have some kind of giveaway stuff ready for my next, bigger milestone… maybe something Game of Thrones inspired since I just started reading those books and am really enjoying them… still developing ideas and patterns though)

anonymous asked:

Hey! I hope you don't mind this ask, I've just been so confused for a while now! I am in love with Les Miserables, I have seen it 3 times in London, seen all the films, met Alfie Boe and others but this still confuses me... who is Musichetta? Is she featured in the book? I have the book and read the first few chapters but I can't finish it! I am really uneducated in the aspects of these characters. Also, could you help me with an easy way of remembering which revolutionary is who? Thank you!

Here is a cheat sheet for the diffferent members of les Amis, should you need it

Ah! Chetta! Chetta is indeed in the book, she’s Joly and Bossuet’s mistress. I can’t blame you for not finding her, because she’s hardly mentioned! The beauty of fandom work managed to create a well-rounded character with the scraps of information we had, and she’s pretty present fanon wise! According to book!Joly she is:

a superb girl, very literary, with tiny feet, little hands, she dresses well, and is white and dimpled, with the eyes of a fortune-teller. I am wild over her.“

I still wonder how you’re doing, what have you been up to. I miss talking to you, I miss how you make me feel better, how you comfort me. I really should absorb the fact that the “us” literally ended years ago so that I could remind myself not to think of you anymore but you know how my mind works, it will always, always, wander back to you.

everyone should read the engelsfors trilogy (and then come talk with me about it because i have no one to yell about this book with). it’s so good

  • all the main pov characters are teenage girls and they’re all very different in terms of upbringing, socio-economic status, personality, etc. you get to know each of them along with their families and friends and it’s just really lovely, discovering their nuances and hopes and fears over time, and i never had a least favorite point-of-view, they were all good and interesting which is not always the case with multi-pov books
  • they’re the chosen ones and they have to save the world from the apocalypse by working together despite their differences
  • they’re not very good at it 
  • but that’s what happens when you grab a bunch of very different people and make them work together. the story is all about them learning to do just that
  • ~~contemporary fantasy with elemental magic and a good balance between real-world stuff and fantasy~~
  • also consenting body swap with character and relationship development, it’s really good
  • the main romance in the trilogy is between two of the girls and it’s beautiful slow-build goodness and it’s the best and they make me cry i love them so much <3
  • actually a lot of the characters make me weep, either in pain or joy or both
  • you will definitely over-identify with one or more of them and then you will cry about it
  • the supporting characters are also interesting
  • like you get the families of each of the chosen ones and all of them have unique relationships with them - some good, some not so good. same goes with friends outside the main group
  • and then you have the villains who also have their own reasons for doing the things they do. some of them are magical, some of them are not.
  • also mona who gives cryptic advice and makes money by selling magical stuff and scamming non-magical people and is generally hilarious
  • lots of issues are covered but it’s all done naturally through the characters and it’s good. 
  • plus a really lovely slow redemption arc
  • ~~FRIENDSHIP~~
  • GIRLS SUPPORTING EACH OTHER 
  • GIRLS BECOMING STRONG AND DEVELOPING INTO BETTER PEOPLE TOGETHER
  • SERIOUSLY THOUGH THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE GIRLS AND THEIR DEVELOPMENT IS THE BEST THING 
  • basically it’s a book about teen witches saving the world while becoming friends (or girlfriends <3), learning to respect one another + work together, and growing into better stronger people. if that’s what you want in a book, GO READ THESE NOW AND THEN COME TALK TO ME ABOUT THEM
Barty and Regulus...

Barty: *walks into dorm and opens book to start reading*

Regulus: Why are you reading when you could be doing more interesting things with me?

Barty: Okay, just tell me now.

Regulus: Tell you what?

Barty: Is this the moment?  Are we about to have sex?  Am I about to lose my virginity?

Regulus: *trying not to laugh* Yeah. 

Barty: *throws book down* Okay.  Let’s do me.  I mean it.  Let’s do it.

Regulus: I can do you if you want ;)

Barty: So should I just… take my clothes off… or…

Barty: Wow.

Regulus: Yeah.  I know what you mean.

Barty: Like really WOW

Regulus: I love you.

Barty: I love you too, and… wait… you love me?

Regulus: *nervous laugh* Yeah… I guess I do.

Barty: I love you, I love you, I love you! *kisses everywhere*

Regulus: You’re so soppy, Barty.

Barty: Cuddle me!

Regulus:

reread update!!! I have finished the shadow rising and am staring down the fires of heaven trying to decide if I should try to read something else before I move forward. probably I will not read something else because I’m really fuckin excited for lords of chaos.

anyway:

  • so I like Perrin a lot more this reread it turns out, also him and Faile are a pairing I like a lot more this time around
  • maybe I got a little emotional when he sent Faile away, maybe, don’t tell anyone
  • hey there Asmodean, you loser, I love you
  • (I’m so excited for awkward and bitchy Asmodean in the next book though)
  • I don’t know how much more I actually have to say except that I really liked this book even if a lot of it felt like set up for later things
  • but also Aviendha. Aviendha is a delight.
  • everyone is a delight. I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR

So this is who i think would be an almost perfect cast. If you don’t agree tell me who you think should replace any of these amazing people. (But i mean i think they are all pretty much on point). I love this series so much and i literally cannot wait for it to become a movie or series. I wanna see how the director does with the book to movie adaptation and i really hope that they don’t butcher it. 

(disclaimer, I didn’t know what to do with some of the characters I just had to match a face that was closest to what I picture, so some of the actors above aren’t who I picture exactly, hope yall enjoy 😘)
Sometimes I wish somebody would take me back to the memories I had with him. The ones that sit in the back of my mind or in the little notebook I keep under my bed. Sometimes I wish I could go back and experience the memories like I should have. Felt the passion when we kissed, or the butterflies that fluttered when I saw you smile. But then I remember that somebody told me I could do better, he wasn’t worth it, he was just going to screw me over. And those memories flash back and I think, did you really love me, or did you love yourself so much you thought you where doing yourself a favor. And I think those are the times when I remember to remove those memories, delete the texts, and rip out the pages in my book. Because darling, a broken heart can’t dwell on broken memories.
