Random appreciation of Ethan because he’s come so far and it makes me emotional. I watched an older video recently, back when his channel was still fairly small, and he talked about what the channel meant to him and what he wanted to do with it, and just to continue to make people happy. He also said that he was afraid because he didn’t want us to forget about him. Now, just seeing how much the channel and community have grown since then is so incredible. And now he lives in LA and does YouTube full time and is sooo close to 300k! And he still constantly reminds us of how much the community means to him, and how much he loves us, and it’s too sweet. I just love seeing people living their dreams, and I’m so fucking proud of him.
I don’t know, I’m kind of emotional today and this community means the fucking world to me, I love it to bits, and I couldn’t forget him if I tried.

Hello, I'm currently crazy in love with all things Oscar Wilde, and I wanted to ask if you had any young adult books with a similar atmosphere?

Hrm. This is a hard one! 

You might like The Careful Undressing of Love by Corey Ann Haydu!

Does anyone else in the bookly community have any suggestions for YA books similar to Oscar Wilde?

Do you know of any lesbian YA fiction, preferably with an Asian MC?

Yes, I do! For a general list of lesbian YA, check out this goodreads list. You can find my favourites here, under YA and SFF YA (they’re bisexual women and lesbian recs).

Here are the lesbian Asian main characters in YA that I know of, though I haven’t read all of them:

There’s also Huntress and Ash by Malinda Lo, but those are implied and not explicitly Asian.  (You) Set Me On Fire by Mariko Tamaki (review) and When Fox is a Thousand by Larissa Lai (review) are more new adult-ish: they take place in universities.

Hope that helps!

  • Jumin: At a beautiful world...
  • MC: *looks over and sees a picture of herself*
  • MC: huh...???
  • Jumin: You mean the world to me, MC. *kisses her on the forehead*
  • MC: *to herself*...I don't deserve this man.

anonymous asked:

What good stand-alone (non-contemporary) novels do you know about?

I’ve broken them down into genre - starred books do have sequels, but can be read as stand-alones.
