Meow! oh man, i love Fangirl to pieces! I was laughing at the pug scene so bad. I love how Rainbow writes things like these realistically, on how it doesn't stop when you're married, that it's going to gets harder after it. Leather and Laces though! I am so in love with Georgie and Neal <3
The pug scene confused me at first, I was horrified thinking something awful had happened, but then it took this hilarious turn.
I definitely really enjoyed the change that was bought by having a married couple as opposed to a couple falling in love (though from the flashbacks you kinda got that too). And I also really like that the timeline is kinda confused (gonna put under the cut for spoilers)
Hey! Can you draw your favorite characters from The Mortal Instruments?
okay i went a little over the top with this one. but here are my favorite TMI characters. Izzy and Simon. I ship them so hard and im going to pretend the end of City of Heavenly Fire didn’t happen. Anyway i tried to draw them like a mix between the movie version and the book version of them so yeah. Still cute. I used actual instagram filters to make it look more realistic. im pretty pleased with how it turned out. apart from Simon’s arm…let’s just ignore that.
“Television is way ahead of film because it doesn’t feel the need to polarize women. Male writers either want to make women the angel or the whore. Women are more complex than that.”—Natalie Dormer, kicking ass on the Entertainment Weekly Women Who Kick Ass panel (via anamatics)
Meow! I just couldn't put it down, i ended up finishing it. It was so beautiful :') Neal, the pug scene, pizza delivery girl, and yes! The cameo! Oh goodness i haven't noticed it until someone pointed it out! I almost fainted. Meow <3
Haha, yeah I’ve just gone through the tag and now I want to re-read it. I’m so glad you liked it, Fangirl remains the favourite, but it’s a close second. OH THE PUGS!!! And all the scenes of them in the past. So much to love.
*I missed it at first too than screamed when I found it :’)
“How does anyone ever know whether love is enough? It’s an idiotic question. Like, if you fall in love, if you’re that lucky, who are you to even ask whether it’s enough to make you happy?”— Rainbow Rowell, Landline (via beckisbookshelf)
“The future was going to happen, even if he wasn’t ready for it. Even if he was never ready for it. At least he could make sure he was with the right person. Wasn’t that the point of life? To find someone to share it with? And if you got that part right, how far wrong could you go? If you were standing next to the person you loved more than everything else, wasn’t everything else just scenery? - Neil”—(via batangkokote)
“Then, like when she finished Eleanor and Park, Rowell says she found herself wanting an emotional change after writing Landline — which led her to the YA fantasy novel she just completed the first draft for. Rowell said good-bye to Elton John and Stevie Nicks and hello to the “edgy, invigorating, and unsettling” sounds of Wild Beasts, Alt-J, and older Duran Duran for a tale centered around good vs. evil that questions “how can you tell the difference, and is our job really to fight the fights we inherit or to choose our own fights?” she says. “Every song on my playlist is one of those, ‘something is about to happen, something is about to happen.’””—Yes this about Rainbow Rowell’s soundtracks is super cool, BUT DID YOU SEE THE NOTE ABOUT WHAT SHE’S WORKING ON NEXT? !!! Literature’s John Hughes: Rainbow Rowell On Her Love Affair With Music and Writing (via sdiaz101)
“You don’t know what it really means to crawl into someone else’s life and stay there. You can’t see all the ways you’re going to get tangled, how you’re going to bond skin to skin. How the idea of separating will feel in five years, in ten — in fifteen. When Georgie thought about divorce now, she imagined lying side by side with Neal on two operating tables while a team of doctors tried to unthread their vascular systems.”—Landline, Rainbow Rowell (via novel-words)
“You meet someone, and you fall in love, and you hope that that person is the one—and then at some point, you have to put down your chips. You just have to make a commitment and hope that you’re right.”—Georgie McCool - Landline by Rainbow Rowell (via vengefulbarista)
“I think they’re perfect for each other and I feel like the tragedy of them is that they fell in love too soon. I’m not sure you’re supposed to meet your great love at sixteen. You can’t cope with it. You have nothing you need to cope with that love at that age, so it’s almost like it saved both of them, but in another way it was really destructive. In the book, Park tries to date somebody and it’s just empty and dead. And if you were Eleanor, who would you date after Park?”—Rainbow Rowell (via sarahdobbs)
donna! i'm currently reading Landline and i'm loving it so far. What did you think about it?
Yay this makes me really happy. I loved Landline- for me it’s a movie waiting to happen, it just has that perfect rom-com vibe. I also really fangirled over the ‘cameo’ of a couple from one of Rainbow’s earlier book- so happy for them :)
