ya lit meme: eight otps [1/8] : Katniss and Peeta  //  The Hunger Games  

“Don’t let him take you from me.” 

Peeta’s panting hard as he fights the nightmares raging his head. 

"No. I don’t want to…”

I clench his hands to the point of pain. 

“Stay with me.”

His pupils contract to pinpoints, dilate again rapidly, and then return to something resembling normalcy. 

“Always.” he murmurs.

I made a post yesterday that was just like “why are YA titles Like That“ bc holy shit and @owlphallacies left a comment to this effect so like…………….. I had to make this. FIND YOUR YA NOVEL NAME, MINE IS MOONWITCH god this name trend is so dumb (disclaimer: I love YA literature, I select YA books for my library, this is all entirely in jest) and it is hilarious to see how common these edgy mishmash nonexistent compound words are when it comes to book titles.

(so many thanks to @silentunder5mph for brainstorming with me oh my god we came up with some quality fucking titles)

YA LIT MEME: Favorite Books/Series [2/10] → The A Court of Thorns And Roses Series by Sarah J. Maas

↳“To the stars who listen— and the dreams that are answered.”

ya lit meme: four death [¾] : Rue  //  The hunger games

“But I feel as if I did know Rue, and she’ll always be with me. Everything beautiful brings her to mind. I see her in the yellow flowers that grow in the Meadow by my house. I see her in the Mockingjays that sing in the trees. But most of all, I see her in my sister, Prim.”

Favorite Secondary Characters → Shaeva, A Torch Against The Night by Sabaa Tahir

↳“I am not an efrit,” she says after settling herself across from me. “They are weaker creatures, born of the lower elements. Sand or shadow. Clay, wind, or water.”
“Then what are you?” I say. “Or”—I take in her deceptively human form, save for those ageless eyes—“what were you?”
“I was a girl, once.” The Soul Catcher looks down at the speckled pattern cast upon her hands by one of the Tribal lamps. She sounds almost thoughtful. “A foolish girl who did one foolish thing. But that led to another foolish thing. Foolish became disastrous, disastrous became murderous, and murderous became damned.” She sighs. “Now here I am, chained to this place, paying for my crimes by escorting ghosts from one realm to the next.”

Every Book/Series I’ve Ever Read: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

“I spent my life folded between the pages of books. In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.”
