the last book i loved

I’m losing my fucking mind over you.
I still love you.
And, without lying to myself, I think I always will.

acowar aftermath ❤️

Done and done and done and done. 

I am full, so full–of hope and tears and smiles and gratitude. 

This story–Feyre’s story, is one that will stay in my heart for a good long while.

Thank you Sarah. These books, these characters, their stories–they’re gifts. All of them. 

It’s strange, yknow, because everything in my life usually feels wrong.

But you’ve never felt wrong to me.

Can you imagine, finally showing your true self to your spouse, your soul mate, and having him not like you?

You should really stop that.

I look over at her, quizzical.
She points to the cigarette dangling from my mouth and gives me the basic line that everyone says to a smoker.
It’s not healthy.

I could stop smoking at any given moment, yknow.” As I crush the supposed “cancer stick” to the dirt, resisting the urge of an eye-roll.
She’s watching me, obviously waiting for an explanation.
God, why does she care? No one ever has before.

It wouldn’t be hard, I mean, I’m not addicted or anything.

She laughs and suddenly I’m trying to ignore how good it sounds. “Isn’t that what all addicts say?

I’m serious.” Judging by the look on her face, I know that wasn’t the answer she wanted.. so I stopped sugar coating it.

I just don’t stop because I’d rather kill myself in a way that’s more..socially accepted. People don’t notice as much- they call me a smoker, not suicidal. I like it that way.

hey if you guys are looking for something to read LET ME RECOMMEND YOU the Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab

like this series is freaking amazing.

it has:

  • amazing writing that is beautiful without being overwrought
  • a really hecking good plot with magic and adventure and great worldbuilding
  • NO LOVE TRIANGLES
  • all the romances feel organic
  • amazing antiheroes
  • there’s rotating main characters and they include a badass fucking lady who is disabled (one eye) and a bisexual prince
  • AND!! the prince’s bisexuality isn’t a Secret or a Big Plot Point it’s just ‘here he is making out with ladies. now dudes’ but it’s also prominent enough that his romances are featured in the books and not mentioned as an afterthought (looking at you, J.K. Rowling)
  • the series actaully (imo) gets better as it progresses instead of derailing
  • THE WRITING IS SO GOOD OKAY
I want to be the last person who ever kisses you, too… That sounds bad, like a death threat or something. What I’m trying to say is, you’re it. This is it for me.
