The Quote (Day #2):

IMG_4552-1

Slowly, Aedion drew his blade and knelt, his head bowed as he lifted the Sword od Orynth. “Ten years of shadows, but no longer. Light up the darkness, Majesty.”

She did no have room in her heart for tears, would not allow or yield to them.

Aelin took her father’s sword from him, it’s weight a steady, solid reassurance.

Aedion rose, returning to his place beside Rowan.

She looked at them, at the three males who meant everything-more than everything.

Then she smiled with every last shred of courage, of desperation, of hope for the glimmer of that glorious future. “Let’s go rattle the stars.”

I have it. Queen of Shadows. By Sarah J. Maas. In my hand. I… I… I can’t. I’m sorry. I’m off to go read this now. Goodbye.


Haha I’m just messing with you. I actually got the book on my birthday. Apparently (after I posted my previous life update), my parents decided to surprise me and pretend that they weren’t able to get the book when in reality, they had it the whole time. So yeah. I told you my mom has a great sense of humor. Thanks Mom and Dad! ❤ You guys have very convincing acting skills. Or maybe I’m just gullible. Who knows.

Anywhoooooo…. I haven’t started the book yet, but I’m going to try and finish all my homework early so I can.

I think I’ve been fangirling too much lately about Throne of Glass… I’m sorry, reader. But it’s consuming my thoughts right now.

I’m so freaking excited I can’t even hide it!

Bookstore Stress, Am I Right?

Bookstores. Oh, don’t we all love them. I would prance around a bookstore and laugh like a maniac if that was socially acceptable.

In bookstores, there are so many books and options. Which one do I choose? I always stress over this because 1) I only have a certain amount of money I’m willing to spend in that store and 2) I WANT ALL THE BOOKS!

Whenever my friend and I go to our usual hangout place (Barnes and Noble), we get an obscure amount of stress when we find a couple books we really want to read. We would literally sit down and list the pros and cons of each book before deciding which one to get. And then, when we go back to put the other books up, we find more books that we want and the whole process starts over again.

Is that unnatural? Am I the only one? I don’t know….

I’ve been thinking about this… thing… for quite some time now. If you didn’t know, new books are always released on Tuesdays (why? I have no clue). Most bookstores put the new releases on sale the Sunday before, so I was planning to go get Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas tomorrow. Unfortunately, I read in one of her posts on Goodreads that QOS has a strict release date of September 1st. So now I have to wait another couple days. *sigh* The struggle is completely real, amiright?

This portion of the post killed my smile today.

My mom agreed this morning to take me to B&N tomorrow to get QOS as an early birthday present. Now I have to explain to her that the book I want isn’t going to be released in bookstores until Tuesday (my actual birthday) and why she should drive me there right after school to go get it. I don’t think she’ll be pleased, but I hope she agrees.

I might just go to B&N tomorrow to see if my local bookstore is a rebel and releases it early… I dunno. I kinda hope they do.

You see, why do bookstores release books early, anyway? In some ways, I’m not complaining, but at the same time, whenever things like the author puts a strict release date, it slowly strangles me that I have to wait a couple more days. WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE QUEEN OF SHADOWS OUT OF ALL BOOKS!?! I even crammed all my homework yesterday and today just so I would have time to read QOS tomorrow.

^^What I wanted to do with my textbooks when I realized I did all that homework early for nothing.

I think I have a problem with waiting. I’m a pretty impatient person when it comes to books. Or basically anything.

So yeah. For those of you who were planning to get QOS early like me, you’ve been outsmarted. Like me. Huzzah. Time to wait for another couple days.
