A Court of Mist and Fury defaced ✨

“Not everyone has to be the Chosen One. Not everyone has to be the guy who saves the world. Most people just have to live their lives the best they can, doing things that are great for them, having great friends, trying to make their lives better, loving people properly. All the while knowing that the world makes no sense but trying to find a way to be happy anyway.”

― Patrick Ness, The Rest of Us Just Live Here

Sunday Shelfie! // Here is my bookshelf that holds the majority of my YA books. 

I’m thinking about getting some Ikea Billy bookshelves to replace this one (even though I really do like it) because a lot of these cubbies are double stacked. Do any of you have the Ikea Billy bookshelves? What do you think of them if you do?

That’s what I can do—take the life of one thing and give it to another, either clay like this or something that used to be alive but ain’t anymore.

Everything new was uncomfortable until you got used to it.
