  • My Mom to my Brother and I: "You two should get to bed, it's getting late."
  • Me, laying on the couch: "Ugh, but I don't want to get up and walk upstairs, that takes effort and stuff."
  • My brother: *swoops in, picks me up and begins to carry me upstairs* "Today I watched The Notebook with you and then carried you upstairs. I am in dire need of something masculine to do."

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!  

  1. Little Women, Louisa May Alcott
  2. Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Maud Montgomery (let’s be honest…  the whole series)
  3. The Wind in the Willows, Kenneth Grahame
  4. Black Beauty, Anna Sewell
  5. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, C.S. Lewis (let’s be honest…  the whole series)
  6. Joy in the Morning, P.G. Wodehouse (so hard to chose which Wodehouse!)
  7. All Creatures Great and Small, James Herriot
  8. Borgel, Daniel Pinkwater
  9. Dear Enemy, Jean Webster
  10. Spindle’s End, Robin McKinley

THIS WAS A VERY DIFFICULT THING TO DO.

THANK YOU Don’t get me wrong I love a good love triangle and I think authors have every right to write whatever they want. But that book spiraled so quickly out of control and away from what that it was suppose to be it hurts a little bit.

AND DONT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON PEOPLE WHO HAVEN’T READ THE BOOKS AND THINK THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE LIKE CAUSE THEY DONT

the people who haven’t read them and talk about hating the love triangle are worse oh my god 

no but the love triangle is the focus in that third book you can’t act like it’s not it’s literally all Katniss thought about like that book was a train wreck. i can see what she wanted in the book, like, i think people that talk about the ‘real meaning’ or w/e have got a good point, but the fact of the matter is that that's not how the book happened. what she intended for mockingjay is not what actually happened in mockingjay because she lost complete control and it's obvious
