Got up at 6 am to catch the first bus up to Lynn Canyon yesterday morning to shoot landscapes with a homie. Got some super moody shots, and eventually got snowed on pretty hard. Hiking in heels in the snow = an adventure in itself. x.x

Underrated mythological creatures in YA books

I have always loved mythological creatures, but I think too many YA paranormal books focus on four creatures: vampires, werewolves, angels and fairies. So with the help of my followers (really they did all the work, I just wrote down the books into categories), I have compiled a list of books with underrated mythological creatures. Just to clarify, I haven’t read most of these books.

candace-lynn-not-flynn  asked:

"You know who to call." (Amanda)

Lenny gasped and shot an arm up into the air. “Ghostbusters! Right?..” Slowly, he lowered his raised fist. “Is-Is that what I’m supposed to say?…” Lenny didn’t quite understand what she meant. Was this a new…meme she was referring to? Wasn’t the ghostbusters kinda old? Or was she saying that he could always rely on her? “Um…” He stopped talking.
