Quote Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Mist and Fury

The new Doctor is a girl!


I’m so happy, so, so happy.

I know that a lot of people are not but honestly it’s only logical. Every regeneration, it’s a 50/50 chance, male/female,.. Time Lords don’t have gender.

Anyway… I’ll save you the complete rant but I wanted to mention it.

I’m glad we’re getting some more female role models in books, movies and on tv. Feyre from ACOTAR is one of them. Although her badassness was somewhat dimmed in the second half of the last book (such a shame), I really enjoyed how she got to find her true self in A Court of Mist and Fury.

And one can only hope right, that the future is looking bright?

Quote The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society Mary Ann Shaffer

Mary Ann Shaffer knows what it’s about! I’ve become much pickier when it comes to what I read. A couple of years ago, I wouldn’t dream about DNF’ing a book. I would struggle through and hate it, but I would always finish it. Now, when a book doesn’t grab my attention, I will put it down. And honestly, I don’t even feel bad about it. It doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s a bad book. Most of the time it’s just because the timing isn’t right and I will pick it back up later on.

Then again, I do find myself commenting on books much more often. The thing that annoys me the most is weak writing. For example, I enjoyed The Court Of… series, but dear god, Sarah J Maas’s writing is so uneventful. I had to push myself through the repetition. That’s what kept it from being amazing.

I guess that’s just what happens when you’ve read books that are so brilliantly written that you want to savour every line. Not every book can compete with that level.

(The quote is from The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. A great book! You should definitely check it out. It’s the perfect book to read during the summer.)

Quote the night circus Erin Morgenstern

Last week’s ‘1984’ quote got me thinking about my favorite first lines. This one is certainly up there. I loved The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. It’s one of those books that will stay with me forever. I don’t lose myself in books that often but I lost myself in the Cirque Des Rêves.

Today, I saw the trailer for this year’s Tomorrowland. If you don’t know what that is, it’s an electronic music festival held in Belgium which is hugely popular with people from all over the world. The setting is always incredible but this year the theme looks spectacular. You can watch the trailer here and honestly, I recommend that you watch it no matter what your music tastes are. It’s beyond magical.
