"You're going to be something, you and that language you speak on paper." -Patricia Reilly Giff.
As I said in a caption a while ago, I've found myself jotting down snippets of free form poetry lately. I don't consider myself a poet, and I've yet to read a full poetry book before. But after finding myself with enough of these single paragraphs to fill a page, I was thinking of creating a blog post of them. Then I watched a video from someone whose spoken poetry I admire. She discussed the rise in "Tumblr and Pinterest poetry," and I knew exactly what she meant. These short paragraphs with no rhyme or rhythm, broken into new lines at random and filled with words that only sound poetic. Many referencing anything that could be profound. Galaxies, waves, looking glasses, veins. Short enough that you don't have to invest much understanding, and vague to appeal to the masses. Designed for reposts. Makes me feel my words are inadequate to be taken as anything more than that. Excuse the long post. I'd love to hear opinions on the topic of Tumblr and Pinterest poetry 🤔
Good morning on this sunny Monday bookies! 🌞💕
Today's challenge for Day 29 of #bookishearworms "Only you - Big Love Story" was one of my favorites to do cause I love to show off my favorite ships. 🙌 And as you may already know, I'm a HUGE Bellamy Blake and Clarke Griffin aka Bellarke shipper. 😍❤
❗❕❗❕❗ SPOILER ALERT: Please do not read on, if you don't want to get spoilered in any way of the relationship these two characters have and also if you haven't seen the season 4 finale of the 💯 yet (cause I have a huge need to talk about that too!!!).
As you are warned: Honestly these two will be the death of me with their slowest burn 🔥of all time but I think they really have the potential to become one of the greatest love stories in TV history. ❤ Especially the season 4 final gave me new hope. My heart melted several times throughout this whole Bellarke-heavy episode. 😍💗Their scenes together were so heartfelt and it was written all over their faces how deeply they care for each other. I think Bellamy already knows that he loves her but the time just wasn't right to say it yet. And the fact that Clarke left Bellamy a message every day for over 6 years, that he's the one who is her lifeline... I don't need more proof that they are sure as hell gonna be endgame. I need them to be! They are just perfect for each other. 😍 You see... season 5 can't get here soon enough! I need to know what's in store for them next. I really hope that Bellamy heard her every single day and he just couldn't respond. I would be devastated, if they set him up with Raven or Echo 😖
So enough of my crazy talk (I think you get that I'm obsessed with them) and let's head to work. Hope everyone has a good start into the new week! 😘
Has anybody read this book? Let me know your non-spoilery thoughts! I haven't picked up any books in two weeks 😂 and I'm considering to start this soon. I got it from the @owlcrate April box. Oh! And you still can use the code APRILFUN for 10% of your subscription box or gift ❤️
On another note, I would like to wish Ramadan Mubarak for everyone who's celebrating! I hope we all have a great fasting month! 🌙⭐️
Gueten Morgen💕 Ich wünsche euch einen guten Start in die neue Woche🙊
Habt ihr auch das Gefühl, dass die Zeit so schnell vergeht? Irgendwie war doch gerade erst noch Januar und jetzt ist dann schon Juni😅 •••
Mir ist aufgefallen, dass ich fast keine Buchbilder mehr auf meinem Handy habe und dringend neue machen sollte🙊 Mal schauen ob ich nächstes Wochenende dazu komme🤔
Ich wünsche euch noch einen schönen Tag❣️
➵ ❝ Take comfort, as I have, in knowing that, while we must travel it alone, this journey rewards goodness, and will prove that the things which are denied to us in life will never create a cage for our souls.❞ . .
I'm in love with traveling. It gives me a sense of joy knowing that it is possible to see a whole new place with amazing arts and architectures, to experience people's rich culture, and to live life to the fullest. .
This is my first international travel and the first thing that came into my mind is, what if I get lost in the airport?😅. I love history & arts and I would love to see more of it in each places I would visit. "Carpe diem" they say, and this won't be the last travel of my life. .
Special thanks to dearest Cait @paperfury for the #unfinishedseries tag. Who's excited for the third book of this series?
💭 Any places you badly want to visit? .
I've been spending the whole morning listening to Hamilton (Original Broadway Cast Recording) and I LOVE the Schuyler sisters! I took the quiz on Buzzfeed and it said that I'm an Angelica!! Tbh I only started listening to it because there were some Hamilton references in Forever and Always, Lara Jean. I got the book yesterday after begging my dad to take me to the bookstore. I read it in one sitting, and I had to admit that this was my favourite book out of the trilogy. Maybe it was because Lara Jean was older? I just loved seeing how her relationship with Peter progresses, and I have always liked Jenny Han's writing style because the way she writes makes it so easy to jump back in and pick up where the story left off. I recommend this trilogy for anyone who loves light, summery reads or for anyone who just wants to get into the mood of summer days! ☀️❤️
Don't you just love days that you can sleep in? I got ELEVEN hours of sleep last night and it was incredible. Tomorrow is a holiday so I plan on doing the same tonight.
I started the Legend series by Marie Lu this afternoon and I'm halfway through Champion. I really just need to know that my babies June and Day are safe and happy together forever before I go to sleep tonight.

Here's the obligatory #socksunday post 😙 I love these socks and I love ice cream😅 I have yet to read #AnnaandtheFrenchKiss (Rachel owns it but hasn't read it? What's new.) I do plan on diving in to some of what I'd consider my fluffier contemporaries soon. I'm kind of back on a smut kick at the moment so fantasy really isn't doing much for me. I did read Cruel Beauty recently but I think that may have hammered home the fact that I find a lot of the YA Fantasy I read more than a little predictable and while smut is as cut and dry in the novel layout as a book can get, I still find the journey preferable to the "plot twists" fantasy tries to play off as original. What are you reading this weekend?
| so I was hanging out with an old friend today, and Blue (the cat in this photo) was all over my friend, licking her, sleeping on her, seeking all of her attention. bluE DOESNT TREAT ME LIKE THAT ANYMORE. she bites me and scratches me (you should see my hands), in other words Blue has hated me (Idk why) for a while, but then a new person waltzes into her life and she loves them???? I'm hurt. |
Good morning from Hong Kong🤗 I hope you all have a great day💕 --
Do you guys bring a book with you whenever you go out? Even when you know you may not actually have the time to read it? I certainly do! The presence of books calms me😂🙈🙈

Monday and I'm STILL sick KMS.
What are your favourite comfort food when sick? I love me some chicken noodle soup
It's a world of laughter, a world of tears
It's a world of hope and a world of fears
There's so much that we share, that it's time we're aware
It's a small world after all.
It's A Small World premiered during the 1964-65 World’s Fair in New York. It was later shipped piece by piece to Disneyland, where it debuted in Fantasyland on May 28, 1966. So Happy 51st Birthday, IASW!!!! I know this is a love it or hate it ride. What side of the fence do you fall on? I loooooove it!!!
This book is illustrated by one of my favourite artists, @choochoojoey, who I'm really, really hoping to meet at #D23Expo this summer. *fingers crossed*
'There's a cold dark corner
in the back of my room,
it speaks to me
and says I'm coming for you.
As I lie on my bed
in the fetal position,
my eyes are closed
hoping and wishing.
Maybe that one day
my dreams will come true,
that I don't have to be here
so down and blue.
The corner keeps talking
about how I'm going to die,
all I can do
is lie there and cry.
As the corner gets closer
and takes me in,
my soul starts to burn
as so does my skin.
My bones shall lie there
turning to dust,
my bed surrounding
nothing but rust.'
_ Blake Duffy
I'm a little doubtful about this picture because it's totally black and doesn't match my theme ☻

It's not a Harry Potter quote but I thought the sentiment fit, plus the bookmark looks pretty next to the Prisoner of Azkaban 😍 This bookmark is available in my shop! There are a few discounted mis-cuts available too!
A series I am slowly making my way through. I'll be starting Crown of Midnight today. So eager to see what I think of this series and then move on to ACOTAR
QOTD: What's a popular series you haven't read yet?
Having my power go out for no reason wasn't my favorite part of today. Because my library has no windows. So the library shelfie was not to be. So I snagged these and snapped a photo of my bedroom shelves!
And why did I pick these particular books? Because they all have my favorite type of villain - one that's not obvious. I LOVE a good story where we're not quite sure who the bad guy is supposed to be. Or maybe there isn't even so much a villain, so the author has to represent the conflict in a different way.

"What we think to be our greatest weakness can sometimes be our biggest strength."
Have we all recovered from our ACOWAR hangovers yet?
There were so many wonder quotes in this book. I had a hard time choosing which one to use in this post!
I chose this one because it's so inspiring. Much like the "Don't let the hard days win" quote from ACOMAF.
Sarah J. Maas really knows how to write insanely quotable books.
What was your favourite quote from ACOWAR?
What was your favourite quote from the entire series?

I've been so sad lately because our housekeeper threw my ACOWAR book cover, and literally no one wants to help me find a way to buy/get the usa cover. I had so many plans for ACOWAR photoshoot.
Happy #socksunday its Memorial Day weekend so why not pay tribute to the brave men and woman who have laid down their lives so that we shall be free. I dont have the words nor do I think ever will to properly honor the fallen.

A different kind of #socksunday 🙆🏻
I'm sad to say that my copy of Lord of Shadows will most likely arrive until 06/22 & I hate Amazon for it☹️ but I guess it's better late than never🤷🏻♀️
Have a nice day though✨
It's been very lovely and sunny here in the UK at the moment and I have been lapping up the good weather while trying to watch a lot of Anime.
I'm so hooked that I order the Yuri on Ice @merakicandles Anime Quarterly box. I also ordered some Anime bookmarks from @happyhelloart it took all my restraint not to buy all the ones I wanted to get.
My April @fairyloot unboxing is finally up on my blog, it includes this gorgeous book (which I'm really looking forward to reading when I've finished the 6 books I have on the go and Lord of Shadows)
My May @geekyclean unboxing is up on my channel, if you want to see me fangirl over their By The Angel box, then head over to my twitter for the link.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
what are your plans for today?
i'm currently at home doing some very much needed spring/summer cleaning. i'm also going through my other bookshelves (the ones i never show photos of) and going through the books i haven't read or i had no interest in. i'm also cleaning out my closet which is a huge mess. i guess i'm trying to do something productive for once. 😂
anyways! i've read almost all the books in this pile except for tfios. i haven't watched the movie either but i pretty much knows what happens in the story.
I FINISHED ACOWAR AND HOLY SHIT‼️‼️
I didn't know that this would be a sort of end to the story (I found out that the following books in the series will be kind of like extended novellas for other characters) so when I noticed things kinda wrapping up I thought HOLD ON HOLD ON WHAT?!? 😱😱😱
ANYWHO! Sarah J Maas doesn't cease to impress and if you haven't picked up this series, do yourself a favor because it is soooo so good!! 🙌🏽 7,000,000/5 stars! 🌟😏
Which book in the series so far is your favorite? LET ME KNOW!! --> mine is ACOMAF 💙
This morning I read more than 100 pages and I'm finally enjoying The 🌹 and the 🗡 !!! I intend to finish this book in a few days and after that I'll be reading ACOWAR, SO EXCITED!! •
✏ Have you read any of these books?
📚I love Professor McGonagall! Who's your fave Hogwarts professor?
⚡️Don't forget that once we run out of our current stock of Wizard's Pub, it's gone until the fall! Stock up on your Butterbeer scented candles and tarts while you can!🍺
📸Lovely photo by @katielmae 🙌Tag us @spireside for a chance to be featured!
It's time for me to finally catch up with Ariana! I have been so busy doing other things this week that I barely got any reading done at all. 😩 But today is Sunday and I have the whole afternoon/evening off (which is rare because I work at a church), and I am going to read until I fall asleep (without setting an alarm 🙌🏼), and wake up and read some more. 😄✨
P.S. The author of The Onyx Vial, Alexis Lampley, designed all of this stuff to go with her newly released book! 😍 I'm pretty sure you can still buy it on the Nerdy Post website!
