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

The new Doctor is a girl!

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 Amy and Roger's Epic Detour Morgan Matson

Today I was watching a video by Katytastic where she recommends Road Trip Reads and almost immediately, this quote came to mind.

Here’s the thing. I don’t read a lot of contemporary fiction. It’s not that I don’t like it because when I do pick them up, I almost always adore them. It’s more that I don’t go looking for them. If they cross my path, I will take a look.. but that’s all.

Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour was one of those contemporary books that I just sort of stumbled across. The story combined with playlists for every chapter made me feel like I was on a journey of my own. (You can find my review here )

As this post goes up, I am (hopefully) enjoying my holiday in the South of France (There should be a couple of pictures on my instagram) and I feel like this is the perfect quote for the moment. My husband and I love walking through little, quiet villages. We will have travelled for 12 hours to get where we are. That’s 12 hours with two little kids in the back of our car. I can only hope that present me has managed to hold on to her sanity… Because even though I love to travel, love to discover new things (new to me), travelling with little kids can be a bit much.

If you’re interested to know which books I’m taking with me. I wrote a little post about it on Sunday.

Are you travelling this summer (or winter depending where you’re from)? Where are you going?

See you soon!

Love

Ellen

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.
