After the stress of uni, I decided to treat myself so I bought Unconventional (which I am really excited to read after reading the cute snippet above!) and The Hate U Give from Book depository. Then my awesome bro bought me the Orange manga from Waterstones which I have been so eager to read!
Ye ‘ol Huck Finn, an interesting re-read and a rather bitter critique of the American South. Disturbingly seems to hold up to this day. Anyway the poster was fun to make. If you’re in Orange County, it’ll be on display at 1888 Center in Orange. That is if it makes the long trek from Pittsburgh. Fingers crossed!!
Book Covers (10 / 120) → Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson
“As it is, I can’t settle, I want someone who is fierce and will love me until death and know that love is as strong as death, and be on my side for ever and ever. I want someone who will destroy and be destroyed by me. There are many forms of love and affection, some people can spend their whole lives together without knowing each other’s names. Naming is a difficult and time-consuming process; it concerns essences, and it means power. But on the wild nights who can call you home? Only the one who knows your name. Romantic love has been diluted into paperback form and has sold thousands and millions of copies. Somewhere it is still in the original, written on tablets of stone. I would cross seas and suffer sunstroke and give away all I have, but not for a man, because they want to be the destroyer and never the destroyed.”
