Time Travel: A Christmas Eve Ramble of Absolute Weirdness!

It’s Christmas Eve and all I can think about is time travel. I’ve already opened most of my presents with most of my family., so now what? I have to wait quite a few more hours until I get to open more, so what’s on my mind?

Time travel.

Of course. The theme of one of my favorite shows, part of my blog username, and the thing that I am so obsessed with I’m surprised I haven’t discovered how to make it a reality myself. Although it’d be pretty cool, I don’t think I have the brain energy or determination to pull out a task of that scale; I thought I’d start running at least five times a week and I only did it once! I have no willpower.

So. Time travel. Thousands of theories, fears, hopes, dreams, and visions all come from one single concept. Here are some of my favorites:

  • The Grandfather Paradox

The theory that time travel is impossible because what if you traveled back in time and kill your grandfather right before he had your mother/father? Well then how could you go back into time and kill your grandfather? This would then create an eternal paradox of he died before you came into the world, how do you exist and how did you kill him? Well you couldn’t, because you were never conceived and born because either your mother was never conceived and born herself to give birth to you, or because your father was never conceived and then born to help bring you into this world. So how is your grandfather dead if you never existed, therefor never being able to kill him.

Of course, I know some of you are asking the question of “Why you would even want to kill your grandfather in the first place?” Well what if, for one, Adolf Hitler somehow had children and let them live, and then you found Adolf Hitler was your grandfather? I know I sure wouldn’t mind putting a bullet through his head if he was my grandfather, whether he had my blood or not.
Blood is thicker than water they say, but you know what’s thicker than blood? Syrup. And I sure wouldn’t mind creating an eternal paradox to give some Jewish kids some syrup to put on their waffles.
  • The Butterfly Effect

This is a personal favorite of mine, although I don’t know why. Now this one is really complicated and when I tried Googling a way to describe it, I got lost. So basically, I’m going to describe it the way I’ve always thought about it:

Say you travel back in time and you step on a butterfly, henceforth killing it. Now say perhaps, that butterfly was going to fly on over to the windowsill of Allen Turning, a WW2 hero and the man we have to thank for computers (there’s a movie that just recently came out about him called The Imitation Game which is one of my absolute favorites. You should definitely go watch as soon as possible). So anyways, in theory, that butterfly may have, I don’t know, helped Allen Turing have courage to keep making Christopher, the first computer and the very machine that helped England win the war against the Germans. 

So what if that butterfly that you just theoretically stepped on and killed didn’t help Allen Turning finish make Christopher fast enough to save millions of soldiers lives, or maybe he wouldn’t have even finished making Christopher at all and the Allies would’ve lost the bloody war! Makes you think about everything different, doesn’t it?

  • Einstein’s theory of “special relativity”

So I just looked this one up and I rather like it a lot, actually.  Einstein basically believed that say you have a twin and he’s down on Earth while you’re in a spaceship. Okay, and so this spaceship can go the speed of light. So when you go the speed of light, or maybe even faster, you’ll start to age slower than you’re twin on Earth. And not only that, but if you are able to go faster than the speed on light, then, with the help of gravity and time, you can slow down or speed up time and make time “bend.”

Of course, I just looked up this theory and have a very loose interpretation of it, so if you see some flaws in this understanding, then please tell down in the comments below!

  • What the Doctor says about all this

This would have to be my favorite part of this post and really this is just to gives this all some lightheartedness to all this talk of paradoxes and WW2 (really, what is it with me and WW2 today???). So here’s a little quote from the Doctor about all this and really, part of me agrees with him on this:

“People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect. But actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like a big ball of wibbly wobbley, time-y wimey stuff.”

And with that quote, I leave you all and bid you a goodnight/good day. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good book!

Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella:: Book Review

Hello hermits! Long time no see, haha. So I realized when looking over my past book reviews that they legitimately suck and I don’t even know how or why my school newspaper used to let me write book reviews. So this round for my book reviews- this being a whole new Round 1- I’m trying out a different format for the review. So here goes nothing, and let’s get down to business!

Book Being Reviewed: Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella

Goodreads Synopsis: “An anxiety disorder disrupts fourteen-year-old Audrey’s daily life. She has been making slow but steady progress with Dr. Sarah, but when Audrey meets Linus, her brother’s gaming teammate, she is energized. She connects with him. Audrey can talk through her fears with Linus in a way she’s never been able to do with anyone before. As their friendship deepens and her recovery gains momentum, a sweet romantic connection develops, one that helps not just Audrey but also her entire family.”

Where I Bought It: Walmart!

When I Began Reading It: July 26th, 2015

Date I Finished It: July 30th, 2015

My Initial Reaction To Buying It: 

“Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh I got it I got the book Ohmyflippingchickennuggets THIS IS FANTASTIC I GOT THE BOOK.”

My Reaction When I First Started Reading It: 

“Ooh, how interesting. So she’s was bullied… Wait, why won’t you tell me…? I’m so confused. So the mom hasn’t pushed the computer out the window yet? Who’s he? Who’s she? Who are you? You’re British? Am I British? WHO AM I?”

My Reaction Once I Was Half-Way Through It: 

“Oh my Hades, please shut up. Why am I reading this? Awe, you’re cute together- wait. Did you just let him do that thing that people without anxiety do? Did you literally just let him tell you that you’re ‘cured’ all because you did one thing outside of your comfort zone without having a nervous breakdown. Oh my God, I just- I just can’t, like I am just so done with you right now.”

What I think of the characters:

Well, I have a lot of opinions and y’all know that. Usually I go with what most people think because that’s just how my mind works, but unlike most I really liked only three characters in this book: Audrey’s older brother, Frank; Audrey’s younger brother, Felix; and Audrey’s dad. Yup. The older brother who was way into gaming, the five year old who was pretty much the cutest thing, and the father of the protagonist. That’s about it.

Audrey, being the main character with anxiety who tells the story from a first person point of view,  at first I was willing to sympathize with and understand. She was bullied so badly that she could barely leave her home- something I’ve been close to myself. I wanted to hug her and tell her everything was okay, and part of me still does- but part of me also wants to whack her in the back of the head with a book.

I feel you Maka, I feel ya.

I mean, who with anxiety would honestly just let a person ask them if they were suddenly relieved of their anxiety just because they did one thing- ONE thing- out of their comfort zone and didn’t have a total mental breakdown. Like, um, excuse me what? I have anxiety and would bite off a person’s head (and I kind of already have) if they asked me like that. And I understand that not everybody is able to just explain these kinds of things to people- I get that. I’m not soulless (for the most part).

But what irked me the most was that she literally just smiled and went along with it. Not even a stony faced “no” or shrugging of the shoulders and suddenly changing the topic to stay off that topic- she just went straight to smiling and nodding along. Those are the kinds of things that will send me flying off the wall in anger. I can’t stand that. Maybe it’s because I’m a feminist; maybe it’s because I’m too cold-hearted and not understanding person; maybe it’s just because I’ve centered myself around action packed books that have no time for spineless girls who just nod along. But whatever the reason may be, when she did that, I knew that I would never be able to look at this book the same way.

And then Linus, the love interest, who asks Audrey this god awful question. Please tell me that this author did not choose one of my biggest childhood crushes and heroes to name this character after and that she just liked the name. Please. I beg of you. I mean, I guess he wasn’t too bad of a character, but he definitely wasn’t the comforting and understanding boyfriend love interest I thought he would be. Goodness.

And then the mother. I guess she wasn’t too bad, she was just a bit too eccentric for my liking. Just a bit, and that then leads me into the the plot.

What I think of the plot:

This book was very interesting, and I have to say I like the writing style of this author. I’ve never read any of her books before, but I have to say I was pretty impressed when I read this book. I really just wish though that she had given us more insight as to what exactly happened to Audrey when she was bullied. That’s left a very gray area and vague topic. Audrey never really explains and actually tell the reader she’s not going to talk about it because to her it’s not “important.” Well if you have anxiety and depression episodes over it honey, I think it’s kinda “important.”

I feel like this book was pretty good for a contemporary read on how teenagers can get anxiety and how they cope with it- a little unrealistic at times and sometimes a little over-dramatized, but whatever. I’m a very critiquing person, so it may not be as bad as I say it is, but these are just opinions. 

Now onto Linus and Audrey’s relationship. May I just say, “Awe… huh? I mean awe, like yeah it’s cute, but huh?” I was very confused at times with their relationship. They had really cute moments and I suppose he was kind of attractive (I keep imagining Linus from the Peanuts comics and movies I used to (and still do) watch and read as a kid whenever I think of this kid), but they’re relationship reminded me a bit too much of what the Homestuck fandom refers to as a black hearted romance (yes I am Homestuck trash and proud; I have a kid OC and a fantroll- deal with it).

This is where the relationship between lovers turns obsessive and controlling, with one lover, or even both, sometimes using physical violence or threats to keep others away from their significant other. Now obviously with Audrey and Linus being teenagers, nothing was too extreme and really nobody was controlling using violence or really even threats, but I’ll just quote the book here:

“Linus.” I nod. “He’s still Linus. He says hi, by the way.”

“Oh!” Dr. Sarah seems taken aback. “Well, say hi back.”

“And he says, ‘Good job.”

There’s a silence and a little smile creeps round Dr. Sarah’s face. “Well,” she says. “You can say that back to him too. I’d like to meet this Linus.”

“Yeah, well, don’t get your hopes up,” I say with a deadpan shrug. “He’s mine.”

So. . . yeah. She say that to her therapist, who has never shown any intentions or anything like what Audrey’s implying. I’ll just leave at that.

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige:: Book Review

So this is my first ever book review and I am so excited!! So here goes nothing:


Book Title: 

Dorothy Must Die 


Book Cover:

Dorothy Must Die Book Cover


Author:

Danielle Paige


Goodreads Synopsis:

I didn’t ask for any of this. I didn’t ask to be some kind of hero.

But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado – taking you with it – you have no choice but to go along, you know?

Sure, I’ve read the books. I’ve seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little bluebirds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can’t be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There’s still a yellow brick road – but even that’s crumbling.

What happened? Dorothy.

They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.

My name is Amy Gumm – and I’m the other girl from Kansas.

I’ve been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked.

I’ve been trained to fight.

And I have a mission.

My Review:

For awhile, all me and my best friend Gracen could talk about was the musical Wicked that was- conveniently for us being the little n00b bookworms that we were (now we are epic bookdragons)- was based off of the book by Gregory Maguire. One day were in the library talking to our librarian about what books we thought they should add to the library when the topic between Dorothy Must Die come to subject. I was immediately interested and was dying to know more. Lucky for me about two or three weeks later (I think), I was in Target while my mom was getting a massage and I found Dorothy Must Die in the book section. After asking my mom and also buying one or two dresses (the only ones I have ever owned and actually liked, I think), I was tearing threw this thing every time I picked it up.

Now it did take me awhile to read, but it was only because of how busy I was at the time and how thick that book is. But let me tell you this: No matter how long it is, you will never bored with this book. You will cry at certain characters’ deaths (someone always has to die in a YA book these days. Always.) and you will fall in love with some male characters, and you will definitely be frustrated with Amy (the main protagonist who is kick-butt awesome and totally a kick-butt mofo) but you will also feel sorry for her, understand her, ad laugh at her awesome sarcasm which all throughout the book.

From Amy’s somewhat-tragic-back-story to her grit-your-teeth-and-make-it-through attitude to her awesome pink hair (I know right?!), she is definitely my favorite character. It’s only maybe thirty minutes into her being in Oz and she’s already believing it. Amy, along with her mom’s pet rat named Star, meet a munchkin named Indigo who is totally kick-butt, Further into the book you meet some of Dorothy’s friends, like the Cowardly Lion who isn’t so cowardly and the Tin Man who has taken that heart of his and made it into something new. And Amy’s love interest, a young wizard named Nox- now their is another snarky and arrogant male love interest for you. I love him, but his type in YA books is just getting repetitive and annoying. And basically you will all probably hate Dorothy and be surprised with how Danielle Paige twisted this character. Definitely something… different.

Now for some warnings:

This book is more tame with cussing except for one side character who is there for about three or four chapters, but other than her it’s not so bad. The more sexual stuff is practically nonexistent, but there is a pregnant side character who is only there for really the first chapter.No drinking, drugs, or smoking. Amy is a wonderful role model for older girls going through tough times; she does have a fiery temper and does make some reckless decisions, but she mainly believes that there must be a way to keep fighting for what is right and win. Some positive messages all throughout the book is that even though some people in your life can hurt you and seem like they have no feelings at all, you should never fully give up on them; power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely; even the innocent can be turned evil; and that home is where your heart is, not where you necessarily physically live.


My Rating:

* * * * *

Five Stars. I loved it, you’ll love it, she’ll love it, he’ll love it, it’ll love it; EVERYBODY WILL LOVE IT. And if you do not, I humbly respect your opinion.

Just kidding!

Liebster Award… Again! 

Okay, I hope I’m not sounding horrible and rude, but here we are… again. But in all seriousness guys, I love this award. It is such a beautiful way to connect with people and just ah *that was the sound of me gushing from having a heart made of marshmallow fluff and nutella*

Okay so a few things first:

  1. I’ve decided to turn this thing into a book blog!! Yay! I’ll still post about my writing and such, but I shall also start making book reviews and little how-to guides and recommendations and I’ll try to at least start doing monthly wrap-ups. (This is now terminating my old spew about a daily routine. I just can’t do it. But I will start setting goals for each month and how many posts I should post… Heh, that’s fun to say).

So now that that little spew is over (is spew correct terminology?) lets get down to business!


The rules are: 

1. Mention the person who nominated you on your blog and link them.

2. Answer 11 questions by the person who nominated you.

3. Nominate 5-11 other bloggers.

4. Create your own 11 questions for them to answer and let the nominees know that they’ve been nominated


So first I was nominated for this award by…. The fabulous and one and only Lilrant!!! And now into her set questions for moi. 


1. How old were you when you first started blogging?

Heh, I would be as old as I am no which is 13. I’ve only had this blog for a little over two months although it already (almost) feels like two years. 

2. What is the one thing you absolutely can’t live without?

Um, I’m assuming we are taking out human necessities, and I’m going to say… books! Because really, this does not limit to notebooks and with some notebooks free pens/pencils come along. 

3. What do you love and what do you hate about yourself?

One thing I love: Body wise, I’d have to say either my hands, eyes, or lips. Personality/skill wise, I’d say my writing and sarcasm. 

One thing I hate: Body wise, while I may be skinny I still am not satisfied with my tummy jar because it is just too squishy for my comfort. Personality/skill wise, definitely my social and people skills. I stutter and make situations awkward and just ugh. I don’t like people in general though, so that doesn’t help either. 

4. Which fictional character do you think you resemble the most?

This might be biased because I’m reading The Wicked Will Rise but I’d have to Amy Gumm from The Doeothy Must Die series. I just think that her and I would get along fabulously and I just embody the face of witchcraft. Totally. 

5. Your favorite Starbucks drink?

Um, I guess a grande double chocolate chip frappichino. So good

6. What kind of movies do you like?

This is really hard, but I guess I’ll jus have to say cutesy movies. While I do love my fandom movies, I love the kind of movies you can cuddle up with a warm blanket and some pillows, maybe a cup of tea or coffee and just enjoy life. Examples include: The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, The Secret World Of Arrietty, Oz The Great And Powerful, etc.

7. If you were to get rid of one thing in the world, what would it be?

Definitely, hands down, immediately: Rape/Molestation. Why? Because I find this topic a disgusting and horrible. Why would some older man decide that it’s fun, I repeat fun to prey on a younger girl and make her feel so uncomfortable that she lets you feel force her to have sex or touch or whatever with you. WHY?!  What supposedly gives you the right? Hmm? It’s horrible and the very whisper of remembering this topic and the fact that it’s still a problem in this world makes me want to throw up, punch and rip apart a thousand walls, and basically this is what makes me feel uncomfortable around men and just the male species in general.

8. What’s on your playlist right now?

  • Anything/Everything by Fall Out Boy (as always)
  • Kids In The Dark by All Time Low
  • Anything/Everything by Ed Sheeran
  • Anything/Everything by Bastille
  • I Miss You by Blink 182
  • Human by Manafest
  • Phone Call by Forever The Sickest Kids
  • Nothing by The Script
  • Superheroes by The Script
  • Welcome To My Life by Simple Plan
  • Somewhere In Neverland by All Time Low
  • What It Is by Kodaline
  • Bleeding Out by Imagine Dragons
  • Amsterdam by Imagine Dragons

9. If you were given the Cloak Of Invisibility for a single day, what would you do?

I would probably just go around screwing up people for a little bit before stealing away to home and hanging out there all day. And then if my mum stopped by, I could just ninja roll to the floor and hide there. Simple.

10. Are you a cat person or a dog person?

I’d have to say that I’ll always be a dog person, but cats are on and off. Some days they’re cutie patooties, while others they’re the devil. And there is absolutely no in between.

11. Would you much rather stay indoors and have some alone time, or go clubbing instead?

I take this is probably to as a Friday night sort of deal, so being the little socially awkward and boring hermit turtle hobbit demon thing that I am, I’d much, much, much, much, muchmuch, much, rather stay indoors at my home in my little comfy and cozy hobbit hole than go ew, clubbing.


Okay so, here’s the nominations:

And now you’re guys’s questions:

1. You have 24 hours to read as many books on your TBR list before you can never get them again; which ones do you choose to read and why?

2. You can only one certain type of food in each group; snack, appetizer, main course, dessert, and drink. What do you choose for each?

3. How do you keep you room: super neat, moderately clean, well enough, or sloppy?

4. How do you organize your bookshelves? (if you have any)

5. Do you ever get creative with how you keep you books? (e.g. bins, nightstands, filing cabinet)

6. Pens or pencils… or stylus?

7. Because I’m evil… what’s your favorite book genre?

8. Who is you favorite author(s)? {there may be more than one}

9. Favorite book that you read as a kid?

10. What book character has inspired, in what way, and do you know why, perhaps?

11. Favorite movie? (it can a book-to-film adaptation or just a movie; I’m not picky)

Alright guys, this was fun and I actually finished this in a day! Woohoo!

Alright, Thanks for Reading.

Best of luck,

The Time Traveling Writer.

The Infinity Dreams Award

I was nominated for this lovely award by the fabulous Only The Lonely. May good fortune and wonderful health be brought upon you and your pretty little head this year! (Idk man I’m a complete fool when it comes to compliments)

Alright so as you all know, I having been absolutely dying to be nominated for an award (really just a book tag, but hey, I ain’t complaining) and I am really excited for this. So HERE. WE. GO. 



Rules for the award:

1. Thank and follow the blog that nominated you
2. Tell us 11 facts about yourself
3. Answer the questions that were set for you to answer.

4. Nominate 11 bloggers and set questions for them

——————————————————–

11 facts:

  1. I am a humongous fangirl. TV shows, books, bands, broadway musicals— anything and everything. Basically all of it (I am working on my fandom page on my site, so check back later for the link!) 
  2. I have a love-hate-relationship with cats. Some days I despise their entire existence, others I only want to get a cat and then be done with life. It’s weird. I know. 
  3. I am obsessed with quotes, and often find myself playing around with this special skill of mine to remember quotes and lyrics. In the middle of a conversation, don’t be surprised to find me quoting a Fall Out Boy lyric or one of the Harry Potter books. It’s just who I am. 
  4. I am an apspiring and undiscovered young adult novelist— heh, the real meaning of this long definition that I like to dub on myself is simply that I am a: teenage girl who fancies the idea of being a young adult author (all and any genre except for trashy romance paperbacks) when I finish schooling (middle, high, and college). So yeah. 
  5. My favourite actresses are Audry Hephburn, Marilyn Monroe, Emma Watson, Lilly Collins, and Jennifer Lawrence. 
  6. My favourite actors are Daniel Radclife, Josh Hucherson, Neil Patrick Harris, Ben Stiller, David Schwimmer, and Roben Williams. 
  7. I pride myself on my Fall Out Boy collection that consists five CDS and half of my phone storage. Heh heh, I love those middle aged dorks. 
  8. I have a new found love for skirts and knee socks.My style consists very much of highly warm and loose clothes, all except when it comes to my jeans— then it’s all skinny and pretty. I live for oversized sweaters, converse and boots, band/fandom tees, leather jackets, and fedoras and beanies. A nice scarf or dress isn’t too bad here or there either. 
  9. Not only do I pride myself on my (not-so) extensive Fall Out Boy collection, I am very boastful to say that I own the entire Harry Potter book series and all of the movies on DVD and blue-ray. Woohoo!
  10. I am a Biblophile (one who is obsessed with books and collecting them), an Angophile (a person who loves and obsesses over all things Britih), and a Philharmonic (one who appreciates and is highly devoted to music). 
  11. I can’t just drink cold water— it has to be iced water. 

——————————————————–

Answers to set questions:

1. Have you ever broken any bones?

Thankfully, and also embarrassingly, no. I was also terrified of it as a kid, and I’m sad to say that still at thirteen the unknown pain is a bit overwhelming to dwell upon at times. 

2. What is one thing you’ve done that you regret now?

I really regret letting all those big kids and bossy mean girls and guys push me around as a kid. I was the tall dork with glasses who always read and the mean kids would pretend to take under their wing and then make fun of me behind my back. Yeah, and although I learned to pick myself up and now know how to make sure no one’s putting me down in my newish school (I moved in the third grade), I still have days where people just decide to walk all over me and I let them. It suck so, but I think little me had it worse. Oh well :/

3. Did you read books when you were a child?

Did I read as child? Ahahahahahahaha, I was known for people only knowing what my eyes looked like from having my nose in a book all the time. My family teased me and I even teased myself. I’ve been reading since I could get my hands on books and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. 

4. What is your favorite smell in the whole world?

Probably the scent of old paperback books. Or maybe those lyric booklets in albums. Most likely books though. 

5. What is your LEAST favorite song?

Ugh, Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines. When it first came out I didn’t mind it’s, but awhile back I saw some  of its lyrics being compared to things victims of rape were told when being raped. And that’s not okay. For us as a society to be teaching people that “it’ll hurt at first” and that be acceptable. No, never. That or Turn Down For What. Please don’t torture me. 

6. What, in your opinion, is the exact function of a rubber duck? 🙂 (This is a Harry Potter reference, and I sincerely hope you all understand it)

For bath time  entertainment. Obviously. *cough cough* Pure Blood *cough cough*

7. Do you like rain or sunshine?

Why not sunshine while it rains? It would be the bigges oxymoron in natural history— WOOHOO!

8. What superpower would you want to have?

The ability to see in the dark and to see people emotions- what they’re really feeling, even when they say they’re fine or happy. No one should have to lie about they’re feelings to meet society’s standards. 

9. Has something made you smile today?

Yes! I went to the car wash with my dad and I learned how to wash the car, him teaching me new things (basically things in your ever day adult life that I never knew about before) being our weird way of bonding. 

10. Are you right-handed or left?

Right handed— although I hardcore wish I was ambidextrous. 

——————————————————–

Now that answering is over with (although that was fun), time for my nominations and the questions that they have to answer. 

I NOMINATE:

Emoji Book Tag!

Okay so I know that this isn’t long after my Frozen Book Tag, but I’m bored and sick at home so deal with me. And so now I am joining and doing the Emoji Book Tag! Let’s have fun, shall we? Once again I wasn’t tagged in this one formerly but @The YA Book Hoarder just said anyone who wanted to do it could do and so yeah. You just answer the question that relates to a certain emoji and then post a pic of the book/book series that relates.

1. A book that you laugh so hard you cried:

emoji-1

Wow that’s a toughie. *I now look to my bookshelf of just total depressing book that have only really ever made me cry and hate the world* Oh wait! The Lost Hero by Rick Riorden!

lost-hero-book

Leo Valdez killed me in that book, along with Piper’s sarcasm and Jason’s cluelessness.

2. A book about love.

emoji-2

*looks at my bookshelf again with a sad look because all I see is fantasy and sci-fi.* Wait again! Paper Towns by John Green.

untitled (3)

I want to go as Margo for Halloween one day, but only if I get a boyfriend to go as Q with me.

3. A book that shocked you.

emoji-3

Not a second though about it- City Of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare.

untitled (5)

Because like the ending with Sebastian and Jace is a killer to the feels! I was freaking out so bad.

4. A book with a character you fell in love with.

emoji-4

No doubt about it, no explanation needed- Adam from If I Stay/Where She Went by Gayle Forman.

5. A book that made you cry.

emoji-5

omg, finally something that I don’t have to go on a scavenger hunt for on my bookshelf! Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling. all of those books made me cry at least once! Even the first three, because I am a very emotional child who has a lot of weird feelings Anyways…

Thanks for reading.
