Speech is of the society. Words are of the mind. Sounds are of nature. The soundless is of the beyond.
Thus, if one gets identified by one’s own speech, that one will belong to the society. If one gets identified with one’s words, that one will belong to the mind. If one gets identified with one’s sounds, that one will belong to nature.
If one dissolves in the soundless silence, then to that one alone the realms of the beyond will yield - to that one alone.
2018 is the Year of the Dog! Here’s 5 Books to Celebrate
新年快乐 - HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!
If you like books, dogs, and celebrations as much as we do, you’re in luck, because it is the year of the dog and we have the perfect books to help you celebrate Chinese New Year! (To learn a little bit more about Chinese New Year customs, we’ve prepared a little run-down on our post at PenguinTeen!)
Author Julie C. Dao found inspiration for this dark East Asian fantasy reimagining of The Evil Queen legend in the epic Chinese dramas her mom loved to watch while she was young. Inside this mesmerizing read, you’ll meet the ambitious Xifeng who is convinced she is destined for greatness. The thing is, there is an (amazingly) dark price to become Empress and things get crazy in best way. In short, your girl Xifeng was not born in the year of the Dog. And if you need more convincing than that, the sequel Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix hits stores this Fall!
Book Zodiac: Forest of a Thousand Lanterns hit bookshelves in 2017, the year of the Rooster. If you were born in 1981, 1993, 2005, or 2017, you’re likely the life of the party, hardworking, and always on the move. Ergo, we’d love to go to a Chinese New Year party with a bunch of Roosters!
Mercy Wong lives in San Francisco’s Chinatown in 1906. Her family lives in poverty and the one thing she wants more than anything is an escape—which she hopes to find at the St. Clare’s School for Girls where only the wealthiest white girls attend. But on April 18, a historic earthquake rocks San Francisco, destroying Mercy’s home and new school. What remains is the choice to move forward and fight for her community, or crumble in the face of tragedy. If you need to get things done this year, Mercy will be the best role model out there for you.
Book Zodiac: Outrun the Moon was originally published in 2016, the year of the Monkey. Monkeys are known for their intelligence, curiosity, and a healthy dose of mischievousness. You’re a Monkey if you were born in 1980, 1992, 2004, or 2016!
BTS Reaction - when you refuse to make noise during sex
So I took liberties a little bit from the original request, just to make sure they weren’t all too samey. Forgive me.
“Jagiya, what’s wrong?” Jin directs the question up to you from where his head is nestled between your breasts, and even though there’s concern in his eyes it doesn’t do anything to still the graze of his thumb across your swollen nipple.
You’re confused; nothing’s wrong. It’s just the opposite, in fact, and when you lift your head from the pillow to look down at his painfully handsome face and he sees that befuddlement in your expression Jin smiles kindly, turning his head to briefly kiss your breast.
“You’re so quiet,” he explains further, and suddenly you understand what it is he means.
You and Jin have only very recently started having sex - in fact you could probably count all the occasions on just one hand - and the last time you had your boyfriend had very firmly planted his over your mouth to silence you. With no explanation at the time, and none afterwards to speak of either, you’d taken it to mean that you were clearly too loud in bed and that this wasn’t something he liked nor appreciated. So of course, in an effort to please him and save yourself the embarrassment, this time around you’d made a considered effort to bite your lip and keep all those usual moans in. It wasn’t easy, by any means.
Autumn is magical on its own: It’s the season of the PSL, turning leaves, sweaters, and the promise of change in the air. That’s why there’s something special about reading fantasies in the fall – they heighten the experience. So we’ve rounded up the 9 with top-notch magic, legends, curses, power struggles and romance guaranteed to add some sparkle to your TBR:
Who: Sisters Becca and Crys, who live in modern-day Toronto.
Where: Toronto AND ancient Mytica, where Becca gets transported to when she touches a mysteriously-delivered book.
Why: You don’t have to have read Falling Kingdoms to jump into this spin-off ofworld-bending high stakes and romance, a dastardly villain with the power of persuasion, and the unearthing of family secrets.
Who: Eon, who’s training to become an apprentice to one of the 12 energy dragons of good fortune…except he’s actually Eona, a girl who’s been masquerading as a boy since females are forbidden to use Dragon Magic.

Why: Kick-ass girl power meets dragon lore? Yes please.
