ACOTAR Inner Circles’ Reactions to Books (told in gifs)

I always wondered what it would be like to have fictional characters come to life. That got me thinking, what would it be like if I became friends with them and took them to my favorite spot, which is of course any place with books. Then, I was wondering what they would do if they got a book in their hands.

I could describe what I’d think their actions would be, but I think .gifs do a better job.

I narrowed my pick of characters to those in ACOTAR because Feyre likes to read books, so at least one person will appreciate a sudden appearance of a book.

2018 Bookish (and Non-Bookish) Goals

The new year brings new resolutions, and that means it’s time for me to make new goals for myself. I don’t really like calling them resolutions because the definition sounds restrictive.

Just for reference, the definition I read of “resolution” on the internet was this:

a firm decision to do or not to do something

I don’t know about you, but that sounds like an ultimatum to me. It’s like I have to decide whether or not I want to proceed with a certain habit and it will be a life or death decision. In reality, it’s not that big of a deal, but it’s still rather important. That’s why I’m going to refer to my “resolutions” as “goals” instead. It sounds more achievable and more forgiving.

Top 10 Books I Read in 2017

2017 is coming to an end… and thank goodness for that. It’s been a rough year, to say the least, but that didn’t stop me from reading some pretty freaking awesome books. I didn’t read as much as I wanted to this year, but that just means I’m going to try extra hard in 2018 to get to all the books I want to read.

Top 10 Worst Characters to Invite Over During the Holidays

I know I’m a tad bit late with this post, but I’m going to post it anyway.

The holiday season is all about spending time with your family and loved ones. Family time is awesome, but sometimes they can get on your nerves. It’s like the sequel to Thanksgiving dinner. There’s always that one person you invite over that makes the dinner/party really awkward at one point or another. If you’ve never felt that feeling of awkward silence, then you’re a really lucky fellow.

People have that mental list of who not to invite over. Whether it be their weird ex or that one person. You know, that ONE person you refuse to invite after inviting them one year. Yes, that person.

That got me thinking, what if I invited over fictional characters from books? Who would be the worst guests? I comprised a list of my top 10 worst guests.

Kiss, Marry, Kill: ACOTAR edition

21807284-_sx540_

A while back I made a post doing the Kiss, Marry, Kill game with the Throne of Glass characters. I enjoyed playing the game (and I hope people enjoyed reading about the results) that I decided to do it again but with Sarah J. Maas’s other series, A Court of Thorns and Roses. Just a fair warning, I am including characters from all three books so if you haven’t finished the trilogy, I highly suggest not to read this post unless you’re okay with being spoiled.

For those who’ve read the series but don’t quite remember all the characters I talk about, I made a list of all the characters with very brief descriptions of who they are as a refresher.

Bookish Christmas Gift Ideas

Where did November go? I swear it was just last week when November started, and now it’s already the last month of 2017.

Speaking of December, Christmas is coming up. Christmas means gift-giving, and gift-giving means the stress of finding what to get for the people you care about.

Last year, I made a list of bookworm gift ideas that you can check out here, and this post is a continuation of that. If you don’t like any of the ideas I present in this post, make sure to check out my other post to see if there are any other ideas you might like.

(I linked all the products I display in this post to their respective pictures.)

Best Bookish Feelings

Yesterday’s post was a big cringe-y so I decided to also make a second post about the opposite side of the feeling spectrum, which is the best bookish feelings ever!

Also, on a totally unrelated note, I was at Barnes and Noble yesterday doing some Christmas book shopping for my sister and checking out their annual signed book collection. I couldn’t find one of the books my sister asked for so I asked one of the workers there and while he was looking it up he started talking about how he didn’t like Harry Potter. It’s safe to say I was a little aghast because I can’t understand how someone could not like Harry Potter.

Characters IRL: Jobs – The Lunar Chronicles

Whenever I daydream, I always think about what it would be like if fictional characters from books were to live in the world we live in today. That got me thinking, what would their hobbies be? Where would they live? What jobs would they hold?

And then I thought, I should make that into a blog post! So here I am…

Image result for awkward hi gif

I was going to do this post for Throne of Glass characters (go figure) but decided against it because I’ve made so many posts about them already (or so I tell myself. To be truthful, I’m not doing TOG characters because I couldn’t think of any occupation for them except soldier, or hitman, or something along those lines). Instead, I’m doing characters from The Lunar Chronicles because each of them have their strengths and weaknesses that make their group as awesome as it is.

ACOTAR #4 Title Reveal!

I don’t really check my phone in the morning or even during the day since I’m at school and my phone doesn’t work inside the school. So when I got home and opened up my Instagram to see Sarah J. Maas’ new post, I was like:

Image result for sherlock excited gif

I’m a little late to this but Sarah J. Maas released the title of the fourth ACOTAR book! I feel like a lot of us were really confused as to what would happen next after the third book, A Court of Wings and Ruin, as Sarah J. Maas said that the last three books would be set in the same world as the first three but follow a different set of characters.

If you want more information about that, I made a post here.

Anyway, without delay, here is the title of the next ACOTAR book!

(Forewarning: there might be teeny, tiny spoilers beyond this point so if you haven’t caught up on the series yet I would not continue.)
