reblog this if you like books

So guys...

Today I went to Half Price Books and was looking for a copy of TFIOS (because, even though I’ve already read it, I somehow misplaced my original copy and needed another) when I heard someone in the next isle over mention S. J. Maas.

Now, in case you haven’t seen any of my previous posts, memes, or reblogs, I’m gonna let you know right now that S. J. is my actual savior. For real. The woman is a gift from God.

So anyhow, I decided that if the person in the isle next to me liked S. J, we could talk about her books or the crap ending to EoS or something.

As I rounded the corner, I saw that the people in the isle over were a grandmother and her grandson, and before her on the floor, the grandmother had placed down none other than the wonderful, breathtaking, awe-inspiring series of TMI.

Now, I’m not usually one to intrude, but I simply had to know what this woman wanted with a legendary series such as TMI. So, the first thing I ask her is: “Have you read this series before?” 

I didn’t really expect her to answer, or, for that matter, take interest in a relatively young, hopeless booknerd such as myself, but she turned right on around and replied, that, yes she had read the series before.

Turns out, this grandmother was collecting the new edition of the TMI series and had not only read TMI, but TDA and TID as well.

I mentioned to her how much I loved TID, and that I thought it was underrated and needed more recognition. The very first thing this lady says in reply is, “Will Herondale.”

Naturally, I was surprised, but after a swift recovery, I responded with: “GURL, don’t even get me started.”

So anyhow, that’s the story of how I fangirled about Will Herondale, Blackstairs, and The Mortal Instruments with somebody else’s grandmother at my local Half Price Books for the good part of an hour.

Announcement: Original Fiction

Hello, my people!

Sooooooo, I’m here to know who wants to get linked to my Original Fiction when I started posting it? I finished the first two chapters and I plan to post here as soon as possible. My idea is to basically do like C.S. Pacat did with Captive Prince: post it online and gather my own audience instead of writing my original story with the only purpose of getting it published.

I decided to go down this road for only one reason: I hate the lack of response writing a book by myself feels. It’s too lonely, especially for someone who is used to writing fanfiction and get immediate reaction, even if it’s in the shape of a like and/or kudo.

This post is to know who is interested to know when my original fiction is posted here. So, like this post if you want to be tagged to read my original fiction. You can also reblog to spread the word about it.

If you don’t know my writing, you can check out my AO3 profile or this AU that you don’t need to know anything about the characters to understand the plot: Just following the map that leads to you.

About my original story the basic plot is this:

James is an amateur skater that needs to win a big championship to launch his career as a professional skater. So, in a moment of desperation, he decided to summon a demon to strike a deal: if the demon made him win the championship he needed to get his dream career, James would repay however the demon wanted it. He successfully performed an incantation he found online to invoke a supernatural being, except…It wasn’t the demon he was aiming for.

Even though James ended up summoning a trickster deity, he still managed to seal the deal he had in mind and for a lower price that he thought he’d have to pay to a demon.  

Now the question was: will the trickster actually hold up his end of the deal? Because James was familiar with the trickster myth and he wasn’t so sure it was one of his best ideas. Well, in his defense, desperate times call for desperate measures. 

Warning (?): It’s a gay book so like if you’re homophobic, stay away from it.


Well, all of the weirdness tonight / today aside, I enjoy being here, love finding updates on stories writers I admire are working on, love finding the latest artwork.  You are are so incredibly creative and talented that I’m always amazed and awed.  I enjoy finding the factual discussions on the movies, musicals, theatre, and books from people with more time to research than I do.  I like seeing the role-playing, the costume makers.  Getting neat insights from those of you in the field is a bonus.  The photos are wonderful.  I’m grateful to every person who reblogs my stories and is kind enough to leave a review.  I enjoy chatting with you via the messaging system.

You all rock.  Thanks for being here.

Peace.  :)

You know what? No. I rarely do anyways, but I’m not gonna reblog any “Looks at favorite author’s books and sees heaven, looks at my writing and sees a trash can” type of posts anymore. Is it relatable sometimes? Sure. Everyone has bad self esteem sometimes, especially writers. But is such an idea really what I want to internalize? That my writing is garbage? No. My writing may not be Terry Pratchett’s writing, or Neal Shusterman’s, or Phillipa Gregory’s, but you internalize what you tell yourself, even if you’re laughing while you say it. My writing is okay. Even if I don’t always feel like it’s good, it’s okay. I know it’s a common and #relatable thing to joke about, but I don’t want to anymore. I deserve kindness about my writing within my own brain. My writing and characters and worlds deserve kindness. I might not be phenomenal, not yet, but what I love is not garbage.

hello, I'm a goy and I'm worried about accidentally reblogging anything antisemetic (I doubt it would happen but I still get anxious about this stuff) in case there were things I didn't know because I'm not Jewish. Do you know of any subtle antisemetic things you see in media that I might not notice? Thank you, I'm sorry for the bother

Ok 1st off thank you for trying to be a good ally and asking this, it shows you actually care about antisemitism and I appreciate that. Now onto the question: in fiction, like books/shows/fandoms, watch out for stereotypes and tropes about Jews. Also watch out for conspiracy things, like Jews having money (many of us are poor), having control of the world/media/businesses.

These are what I can think of rn, but if anyone wants to add more feel free too!

anonymous asked:

What is still starcrosed? I never heard of it before you started talking about it's cancellation and the stuff reblogged so far looks really interesting.

it’s a show by shonda rhimes ! (htgawm/greys)  based on a book by the same title by melinda taub

because i suck at summaries 

A period drama that picks up where the famous story of Romeo and Juliet leaves off, charting the treachery, palace intrigue, and ill-fated romances of the Montagues and Capulets in the wake of the young lovers’ tragic fate. Based on the book by Melinda Taub.

the leading lady, is lashana lynch, a black woman is at the center of a period drama god bless.

other than that the cast is really diverse and quite talented

the show balances perfectly all the drama, action, heartfelt, moments, and is literally filled with tropes from the very first episode.

but unfortunately the show has ‘been’ cancelled and its first season only has 7 episodes (1 remaining)

it truly is a gem so i recommend watching!

general li mulan

okay so i LOVE mulan okay. as far as i’m concerned it’s a Perfect Movie and doesn’t need any fixing. but i was thinking today and -

- what if mulan didn’t go to war to save her father?

say her father is dead, okay, killed by the previous war. so she’s raised by her mother and grandmother, women who’s complacency and softness has been worn away by necessity. she needs to marry well, for her family’s sake, because her mother has refused the hand of every man who offered. but mulan is even more rough around the edges than before, is educated not only in books (her mother said men wouldn’t find smarts attractive and grandmother pointed out that men aren’t always around and off to school mulan went) but in the sword too, taught to her by her classmate, ping.

mulan is considered in the lower end of the upper class, coming from a family of military men and scholars and successful merchants. ping is near the top, the son or nephew of an advisor to the emperor. his family is very rich and very important, and the reason they become friends is because mulan manages to notice something about him that he’s been hiding from everyone else - he’s going blind.

not totally blind, enough to get around, but blind enough that reading is difficult and swordplay is even worse, although once he has it down he has it. ping is no fool, he’s not weak or bumbling. his eyes just don’t work. so mulan notices and confronts him about it. she promises to keep it a secret, and hey, she’ll even help him with his assignments by reading the books out loud and helping him study. but in return he must teach her the sword, must teach her about military and tactics. he agrees.

ping and mulan become very good friends and there’s some raised eyebrows about it but they are TOO far away in class for it to be inappropriate, so they make tutting sounds and disapproving faces and let it go.

then the draft happens. ping can’t go to war, he won’t survive it. not with his eyesight like it is. so mulan offers him a deal - she’ll go to war for him, in his place. in return, if she survives, he must marry her. if she dies he must take care of her family.

ping can’t make this kind of family decision on his own, so he goes to his mother and tells her everything, about the eyesight and how he’ll die if he goes and mulan’s offer. his mother says he must keep it a secret from his father, but agrees - if mulan fights in her son’s place and survives, a wedding will be arranged. either way, mulan’s family will be taken care of. ping will be sent to live with some cousins in the meanwhile.

“you’re not in love with me, are you?” ping asks, helping mulan saddle her horse in the middle of the night. she scoffs and rolls her eyes, “not even a little. but marrying you will make my family happy, and besides, you’re my best friend,” she says, smiling, “better you than some grabby old man.” he smiles and hugs her and says, “i’m not in love with you either. but don’t die out there. we have a wedding to plan.”

so mulan goes to the camp, pretending to be ping, and she’s a little bit less lost but things still go as they go. she’s educated and trained, so it’s not hard for her to pass as ping. shang is keeping a special eye on her, thinking that she’s the son of an advisor, one of his father’s friends. and he sees how easily she excels, how quick thinking and smart she is, and starts giving her more and more responsibilities. by the time they’re called out, shang considers ping ie mulan to be his right hand man, and possibly his best friend.

he’s also a little bit in love with ping, and he’s long known he’s attracted to both genders, so he watches ping laugh and smile and the crease between his eyes when he frowns and does his best to let his feelings chase away the best soldier he has. every time shang looks at ping his heart clenches and he things to himself: i wish i could have you, i wish this was a time and a place where one man could have another, i wish you were a girl, is wish i was a girl - i wish we could be together. he’s literally a step away from doodling ‘li ping’ with little hearts over his battle plans. 

so the battles happen. shang and ping lead their men together, respected and loved. they each get promoted, and promoted, and promoted. it’s been years, and it comes to a point where they’re both generals in their own right. they trust each other, care for each other. and are both secretly in love with the other.

mulan is so conflicted. because she wants this war to end and to go home and settle back into life and become ping’s wife, so she can have an easy life spent studying and learning with her family taken care of. that’s what she’d wanted. but now what she wants is shang, her best friend, her brother in arms, her fellow general. she wishes to be everything to him, aches to be the woman on his arm and in his bed, but knows it’s the one thing she can never be.

then that final battle happens. mulan’s quick thinking saves them all and ends the war - but she’s injured.

shang finds out the ping has been a girl all along. he demands explanations - so she tells him everything, that she traded places with ping to save him, to become his wife.

and the lies should sting the sharpest, but they don’t. she’s still the same person, after all. it’s that she’s promised to another man, for one second he’d thought he might have her, but no. so he agrees not to reveal her but he’s furious and furious at himself for being furious and they’re not the same now, broken and splintered and neither of them know what to do.

the war is over. they leave. mulan returns home, and thanks to her ping is now known as a respected general. she’s done her part and survived, and now she gets her reward - ping’s hand in marriage.

but she sees ping for the first time and flings herself into his arms and starts crying. she tells him everything, because he’s still her friend, her very best friend besides shang, the man whom she lied to and betrayed and loves. and ping listens and takes her by the shoulders and says - i’ll uphold our bargain, if that’s what you want. you can be my pampered wife, you’ve more than earned it. but if you want to go to shang, i won’t blame you. you deserve your happiness.

and mulan goes back and forth, but ultimately she decides she has to try. if shang rejects her she’ll return and marry ping and uphold her family honor. but if shang wants her - he’s not as high up as ping, but he’s high up enough to satisfy her family, and also she would love him and want him if he was no more than a farming peasant so it doesn’t matter much anyway.

she rides to the capitol. she finally meets ping’s father, running into him while looking for shang. “ah mulan,” says this man who was never supposed to know of her until she became his daughter-in-law, “i didn’t expect to see you here. how fortuitous. walk with me.” she does, wary, and that’s how she discovers - he and the emperor had discovered her deception a year in, but at that point she’d already proven herself too skilled and valuable to lose. he tells her that he will uphold his son and wife’s deal and gladly welcome her to his household - but that she’s earned her rank as general, and that he and the emperor have no problem with letting her keep it.

she says thank you, shocked and joyful, but that she has to talk to someone first. “ah, yes, young general li,” he says, eyes twinkling, “i do believe he’s around here somewhere.”

she has no idea how he seems to know everything, but she finally tracks down shang who’s ecstatic to see her and hates himself for it. she confesses - says she loves him, that she’s engaged to ping but willing and able to break this engagement for shang. who is dumbfounded and elated and says yes, of course, finally and forever.

and mulan accepts her rank and marries shang, and they become the literal power battle couple of the general li mulan and general li shang. ping becomes a scholar and marries a very nice young woman who loves reading and is happy to read aloud to her husband with his failing eyes.

and they all live happily ever after.

If you have the time and if you don't mind, what are some books you really recommend? Doesn't have to be all time faves, but anything that pops into mind that you want more ppl to read and love, Extra points if lgbt+ , i got the whole summer with little to do and i wanna spend it reading some good quality writing and honestly so far your recs have introduced me to so many faves its unbelievable

[blushes profusely] oh wow, thank you!!!  i’m so glad you’ve trusted me enough to check out some of the stuff i reblog; that is like the ultimate compliment, i can’t even???  i don’t mind at all(!), fair warning though: i only started recording what i read partway through last year and my mind is like a sieve so i’ll do my absolute best to remember what’s sang to me in the recent past.  warning number two: i’m in an open relationship with absolutely every genre out there so i’ll try to note which belongs where so you can avoid those that hold no interest for you.


  • i’ll give you the sun.  i loved this book, the writing is fucking transformative and all the characters are so damn likable, while still being realistically flawed human beings.
  • the raven cycle (tetralogy).  definitely my favorite series since harry potter.  the writing, the world-building, the characters, it’s all on top-form.  i wrote a little, mini non-spoilery review of it: here, back when i was better (worse?) wordly-wise and my feels were brand new.
  • more happy than not.  i’m still not sure how i feel about this book.  it was hard, but it felt very true to the characters and the lingo and style matched the ages of the players and i have a lot of respect for that.
  • the watchmaker of filigree street.  woooow i loved this book.  i admit ‘historical fiction’ kind of makes me cringe.  it never precludes me from reading a book but it does knock it down the list by a book or five because they’re often very dense and very clunky and end up taking me ages to get through.  but this one was gorgeous.  i loved the plot, the attention lovingly placed on every character and the historical elements.  the surprise gay in an already brilliant book felt like winning the lottery honestly.
  • captive prince (trilogy).  okay, truthfully, i’m only putting this on here because the second book is such a high point for me.  it was never bad at any point but it had unfortunately been hyped far too much for it to live up to my, admittedly, very high expectations.  hopefully it’ll fare better with you?
  • everything i never told you.  i go back and forth on this one.  i like the writing a lot, i like the LGBT aspect a lot, and i like the mystery aspect a lot but there are definitely characters i would cut out entirely for sheer predictability if i could and that killed a lot of my enjoyment at the time (but i think much more highly of it in retrospect?).  so, take that as you like.
  • aristotle and dante discover the secrets of the universe.  if there’s a book that handles its characters with more care or respect or consideration then i haven’t run into it.  i love the way this is written and the people it’s populated with.
  • flying lessons & other stories.  a bunch of uber talented authors writing a bunch of uber diverse and LGBT-focused stories and, yes, that is exactly as awesome as it sounds.
  • the song of achilles.  it is utterly heart-breaking but so rich, honestly.


  • the diviners.  (also has a minor LGBT character, who may play a bigger role in the sequel?)  fair warning, i have not read the sequel, lair of dreams, because it is somehow still not out in paperback (yes, i read physical books, yes, i pretty exclusively read paperbacks so i can lug them everywhere with me, YES, I PRE-ORDERED THIS ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO AND IT’S STILL NOT OUT, NOT THAT I’M BITTER ABOUT THAT OR ANYTHING) so i can’t speak to that one finishing on a high note as i don’t know.  but this was the first historical novel i managed to like in a long while.  it does such a good job of fusing in 1920s lingo and dress and aspects that i couldn’t help but love it.  add in the fantasy elements and i can admit i’m the perfect sucker for it.
  • the scorpio races.  i’m not sure why but it took me a long-ass time to get into this book, i wasn’t flipping pages with gusto until well towards the end but - especially as i was reading so much YA at the time - i really appreciated coming across a romance that lets both people come into it as themselves and stay themselves, neither puck nor sean were ever smashed or crumpled or shaved away to fit into their relationship, which was so refreshing.  plus the water horses were fucking cool.
  • the night circus.  the writing, the atmosphere, the circus.  just… it is all very whoa.
  • all the birds in the sky.  i loved this writing style and these characters and the magical elements.


  • i’ll meet you there.  there was something about this and i just… ended up liking it way more than i expected to.  i might’ve just read it at exactly the right time, i’m not sure, but i really enjoyed it.
  • the invoice.  this is honestly just hella cute and so freaking surreal.  swedes, man.


  • why not me?  i like mindy kaling a lot.  i make no apologies for that.  plus you can read both her books in about five seconds, haha.


  • station eleven.  i loved this book.  the way the narrative is woven is so refreshing and i wish the comic book miranda was writing in this book was a real thing more than anything else in the woooorld.
  • illuminae.  hot DAMN this book was cool.  the plot was rock solid, the characters were hilarious and badass and the graphics made out of text and spiraling words and just the way this thing is put together?  shit, it’s worth your money and then some.
  • a robot in the garden.  okay this is just cute as hell.  i can’t even with tang, he’s the most adorable robot to ever adorable.
  • annihilation (southern reach trilogy).  (LGBT minor characters.)  okay, honestly?  i don’t know.  this was freaking zany but i was invested as fuck in all the kookiness for reasons i can’t articulately elaborate on.
  • the martian.  hilarious, engaging, SPACE.  what more do you want?


  • things we lost in the fire.  this is more atmospheric than anything but, damn, could this get me wishing i wasn’t reading this in the dark or looking over my shoulder to make absolutely sure no one was standing behind me.  it’s a book of short stories (by the way, i love books of short stories and i definitely realize that is not true for everyone) and each one is so well-delivered and stylized.  i really enjoyed reading this.
  • let the right one in.  okay, this is legit horror so definitely stay away if you’re easily squicked out but it is harrrrrd to find good horror (at least in my opinion) and this definitely, definitely qualifies.
  • horrorstör.  i honestly had such low expectations for this, a horror story set in a wannabe-ikea, but it ended up being so ridiculous and strange and funny that i was won over by the finish.
  • the girl with all the gifts.  holy unique and well-executed zombie idea, batman!


  • the bigness of the world.  there were definitely ones here that hit better than others but the ones i liked, i really liked!

GRAPHIC NOVELS (i read a lot of these so, um, prepare yourself)

  • saga.  (LGBT minor characters as well.)  this is world-building to a degree that i’m convinced did not exist before.  just, i can’t say enough amazing things about this series and the staggering amount of imagination that regularly goes into it.
  • ms. marvel.  heart-warming as fuck.  it’s definitely really easy to lose faith in the world these days, luckily kamala is there to remind you that people are primarily and genuinely good.
  • black science.  this is another one that took just an insane amount of imagination to cook up.  i got off to kind of a rocky start with this one but the gray-ness of all the characters really speaks to me, and that doesn’t really blossom until later in the series.
  • spider-man/deadpool.  this was very satisfying for my super duper spideypool-shipping mind.  joe and ed did us so good, and joe basically said in his sign-off: i made it absolutely as gay as they would let me, haha.
  • the wicked + the divine.  (LGBT minor characters that you’re going to get way too attached to, and retroactively.  it’s awful [sobs].)  the concept for this, gods reincarnating into teenagers before they burn up their hosts after a predetermined set of time, is so fucking cool.  the humor and the characters and the plot is all just aces.
  • iceman (LGBT MAIN CHARACTER).  okay, so this just started.  like issue #2 was only released days ago but 1) i am liking it so far and 2) marvel did it so dirty and barely advertised bobby - an openly homosexual superhero - was getting his own series, like, i found out about it the day before it went on sale and i keep my ear fairly close to the ground (not as close as some BY A LOT, but closer than the lay person i’d say) so if you can support it, please do!  pre-orders mean a lot in terms of numbers. :))))
  • descender.  admittedly, this starts out rooough.  because the main character, TIM-21 (and his little dog too), are annoying as hell.  he’s an android so there’s no dimension to him so he’s booooring as all get out but i am so glad i stuck with it through to the next trade because, probably picking up on the unsustainability of him as a main character, he gets shuffled off and the side characters get the stage and they rock so hard.
  • paper girls. (LGBT main characters.)  i’m kind of just convinced that brian k. vaughan can do no wrong at this point.  his plots are so tight and mind-blowing and badass.
  • monstress.  here’s a little tid-bit about me: female comic book writers are 100% more likely to get my money and my time because they are so damn rare and this series is unique, badass, and eye-opening.
  • black monday murders.  i’m a little premature with this since there’s only one volume and i usually try to wait until there are at least two but i check up on a volume two a lot so that definitely means something intrigued me!
  • nailbiter.  okay, i haven’t read the final volume yet ‘cause i’m reluctant to let it go but, so far, a series about multiple serial killers all being from the same town has me VERY HOOKED.

i wish i could remember more but this is honestly way better than i expected to do, haha.  they’re definitely not all my all-time faves but they’re ones that have stuck with me for one reason or another and that i didn’t feel i wasted my time on, so that’s something, right?  i hope this helps get you started and that you don’t think too awfully of me when you inevitably run across ones that aren’t your cup of tea!

FEMSLASH BOOK CHALLENGE:  a YA/NA book ➝ the melody of you and me by m. hollis 

Being afraid is part of falling in love too. What makes it a positive or negative experience is how you feel once you are with the person. Does she make you feel comfortable and safe and happy? If yes, then go for it. It’s okay where you really stand with people and then move on if it doesn’t work.

buster: food gifsets and conspiracy theories. reblogs those bogus disney recipe posts and comments stuff like “tried this last night!! delicious 😋😋” and no one can tell if he’s joking or not 

francine: sports, horses, scathing vagueblogs, and the occasional callout about people in her class who happened to wrong her

muffy: basically richkidsofinstagram

brain: responds to all “SCIENCE SIDE OF TUMBLR EXPLAIN THIS” rallying cries with 5000+ word long explanations on stuff like “why a bubble pop when it cold”. longwinded but incredibly informative

fern: posts scary short stories that eventually get stolen + reposted by local horror blog thruppenceee, artistic photos of her neighbourhood, Which Romantic Poet Should You Fight, reblogs those “ok but imagine if [vague concept]” posts and writes a story around it and gets a dozen “omg u should write a book!” comments in response

sue ellen: travel photos, “why is no one talking about this??”-style news reblogs, martial arts gifsets, vegetarian recipes, posts reviews and writeups of local businesses in order to drum up support 

molly macdonald: has an art blog where she posts drawings of her OCs and reblogs lots of animation tutorials/references. people have doubts it’s actually her blog until they hit the posts where she tears into sexist character designs and depictions of female characters in media, then they know it’s definitely her

binky: main blog is about wrestling + fighting techniques but has an anonymous sideblog devoted to opera, ballet, and butterflies. occasionally posts his poetry (of which fern is a big fan)

george: posts blues music and videos of his ventriloquism acts with wally. a good and pure blog, free of drama

mr ratburn: 

prunella: The Signs As
