they just lost a book

fangirlnazia  asked:

Hey I just finished reading carry on and this is the best thing that ever happened to me beside my bf xD. I did see something like RR said that she wants to write a sequel for Carry On. But is there any official news or something? And what's your personal opinion about this? I'm desperate ;-;

Oh yay! I’m glad you liked it :D

Rainbow has mentioned before that out of all her books Carry On is the one she’d most likely write a sequel to. We do know she’s currently working on a new novel right now but we don’t know much about it, only that it at least in part takes place in Summer (she tweeted about this but I can’t find it sorry!). I would love for Rainbow to write a sequel as there are plenty of loose ends and directions she could take this. Personally though I think a lot of this hinges on how well Carry On has done it terms of sales (I have no idea how to look this up) and that if people really want a sequel the best way to get it is to tell everyone about this book!

Chapter 1: Jason.
“Even before he got electrocuted, Jason was having a rotten day. He woke  in the back seat of a school bus. Not sure where he was.”
I loved the way this book started, the very first paragraph is hilarious! I just had to illustrate it.

poetry book recs, kind sir?

ooooooh YES!! 

ok so I’m going to leave out stuff that’s Too Obvious, which means a lot of this is niche (to me) or contemporary, and… I recently had a canary on twitter about how much ~*~modern~*~ poetry GETS MY GOAT. I’m reading a lot of New poets/collections this year purely because I… didn’t really read that much contemporary stuff before, and I thought I should branch out. (so far I’m dubious.) so, yes – obviously Plath, Blake, Hughes, Sappho, Eliot, Keats, Shelley, etc. etc. ad nauseum, The Greats, yadda yadda, here’s some others.

so far this year I’ve read (and ENJOYED - I’m not reccing the ones I wasn’t into/thought were pants, soz): 

  • Letters From Medea by Salma Deera
  • Grief Is the Thing with Feathers by Max Porter
  • Hold Your Own by Kate Tempest (I actually LOVED this) 
  • Mouthful of Forevers by Clementine von Radics
  • War of the Foxes by Richard Siken (of YOU’RE SITTING IN A CAR WITH A BEAUTIFUL BOY, AND HE WON’T TELL YOU THAT HE LOVES YOU, BUT HE LOVES YOU fame) 

I’ve also read and loved:

  • Teaching My Mother How to Give Birth by Warsan Shire
  • The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy by Tim Burton
  • The Curse of the Vampire’s Socks and Other Doggerel by Terry Jones
  • Love Poems by Carol Ann Duffy
  • Let Us Compare Mythologies by Leonard Cohen

my personal 10/10 all-time go-tos are:

  • Crush by Richard Siken (despite appearing on every single tumblr graphic between 2011 and 2013, it still gets me in the heart guts)
  • The World’s Wife by Carol Ann Duffy (which I have loved wholeheartedly since I was 17 years old)
  • pretty much any collection of Great War poetry: Up the Line to Death, Men Who March Away, Lads: Love Poetry of the Trenches (the Great War poets are my favourite. like, of all poetry, ever)

my favourite individual poems, as we’re on the subj, are: 

finally, a heads up: youtube literally anything by Brave New Voices, sit back, prepare to be Shook. ‘Transcript of Civil Rights’ by Shanita Jackson and Dakota Oder still DESTROYS ME five years later.

THERE YA GO. not much, but not nothing! enjoy!! maybe?!?

I’m holding The Phoenix in my hand.
AS A BOOK.
I’M NOT OKAY.
This is so precious omg @walker-oliciter ! Thank you for the gift ❤️

OF COURSE the first thing I draw from the TOA book is big brother Percy. Really, I wanted to draw something really sweet with Percy holding his little sister. But then I thought I wanted Annabeth in the picture. Then I thought what would happen if Percy had to babysit his little sis. And then this was born.
To set the scene: Sally is at a book signing and Paul is at a conference, so Percy and Annabeth babysit while visiting New Rome for college stuff. And of course, Percy has to show off the cute babes.

despite his faults, which were numerous and spectacular, the reason i’d liked boris and felt happy around him from almost the moment i’d met him was that he was never afraid

Remember when Abby caught her son drinkin whiskey and literally called him by his full name, like let this momma rest pls Andrew she’s got 9+ babies to look after,, she can’t always be watchin you

tec questions

danielaa79 said:

Hi: will Alec appear in all three books of the malec project or just in tlbotw? Love your books - thank you for creating a neuroatypical character. As a mother of a child, that is often excluded because he’s special, I’m often depressed. You give me hope and relief.

Alec is in all the books (otherwise it wouldn’t really be a Malec series it’d just be a Magnus series :) and other characters we know weave in and out of the story.

I am glad you like Ty! :)

catarinalosss said:

Heya! Just wondering if The Lost Book of the white will be all Magnus’ POV, or if it’s both Magnus and Alec’s POV? Thanks!

It’s both Magnus and Alec’s point of view.

malec-go-to-hogwarts said: Hi. I was fascinated by Asmodeus in CoHF and I was wondering whether we hear any more about him in future books??

Since TEC is so much about Magnus (and Alec) I think it’s very likely Magnus may think about his father and his past. (And remember, while the first book takes place before Alec knows Asmodeus is Magnus’ father, the later books don’t!)

chaoitic said:

Hi cassie I am wondering about TEC trilogy, will all of them be set before TDA? Or just the first book? Also is it gonna get released before TWP ? Love from Baghdad xo

Both the first and second books are set before TDA, though there are time jumps between the books. I think it’s likely they’ll all be out before TWP but you never know!

hopeydopey-14 said: I absolutely love all your work and Alec may be my favourite fictional character of all time. My question is, will TEC be a collection of novellas or actual novels? And if they’re novels, how will you manage the time they take place and how will you weave them around TMI and TDA?

They are novels, and believe me it’s complicated weaving them around TMI and TDA, but that’s the plan!
