It wasn’t until I started reading and found books they wouldn’t let us read in school that I discovered you could be insane and happy and have a good life without being like everybody else.

received this book a couple of weeks ago with a bunch of other books that were on my amazon wishlist. i don’t know what exactly made me want to buy this one specifically. i didn’t have it on my wishlist and no one recommended it to me. the cover definitely caught my eye, but that wasn’t it. i actually searched for the title of the novel with the intention of buying it— but i can’t, for the life of me, remember what made me do it!
whatever magical force made me buy this book, i’m so incredibly thankful for it. you have no idea. this book is beautiful. i can relate on so many levels with the protagonist even though i’m not a writer nor a guy. it’s too real, too painfully and beautifully real. i want to finish this book in one sitting, devour it, but i also don’t want to leave it behind. i want to keep reading it for a good long while.

go get it.

recently finished reading bitterblue by kristin cashore. the third book in the graceling realm series. i highly enjoyed reading it. i love cashore’s female characters, they’re inspiring. my chest hurt for bitterblue when she had to go through her father’s journals. i can’t even imagine how something like that would feel. it would tear a normal person apart. let alone a queen who had enormous responsibilities. my favourite book is probably still fire but i loved bitterblue, probably more than graceling. loved that lady fire made an appearance in this book. sigh. if you like fantasy/young-adult books, then i recommend this entire series.

re-blogging this because i might be in venice sometime during september and if i don’t find this piece of heaven i’ll probably hate myself until the end of time.
