“…But what the word “feminist” does do is acknowledge the very long history of the women’s rights movement. I agree with what [Joss Whedon is] saying: It should just be assumed men and women are equally important and equally capable—but it’s not, and it hasn’t been for thousands of years. So, “feminism” and being a “feminist” is an acknowledgement of that history and the culture we’ve lived in for a long time. It’s a reaction to that, but for me, that’s an important acknowledgement to make.”—JOSEPH GORDON LEVITT SPOUTING SO MUCH TRUTH (via carolineeand)
meeeyow! You’re under arrest for being such a cutie. Oh oops it seems I have forgotten my handcuffs I guess I’ll just have to hold your hand. You have the right to remain silent. Or you can talk. I like it when you talk. Okay now come with me please.
meow, but you're my favorite cat of all time Donna! (✿◠‿◠) top 5 books of all time are Eleanor & Park, Wonder, CP2, The Color Purple and Paper Towns. I haven't decided my top for this year! >w< *adds petunia to list potential names for pets*
I’ve read a few of them (not Wonder or the Colour Purple- though I really need to rectify the second one).
I really loved E&P when I first read it, I was so obsessed with it (and particularly Eleanor- loved her so much. I just wanted to protect her). I guess you’re excited for the Paper Towns movie? (I’m excited for Nat Woolf, I loved his Isacc in tfios).
That’s fair enough, still about 3 months left of reading time of this year yet (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
To be honest I wouldn’t even know what my top 5 are anymore. Emma by Jane Austen is probably number one, and TMI/ TID have been there for a long time but I almost feel as if that is a bit past tense for me now becasue I don’t really feel the same about them anymore.
Pride and Prejudice also probably in there and maybe the Secret History by Donna Tartt but I finished that pretty recently so I’m not quite sure if it would be in my top 5 yet.
“You don’t know when you’re twenty-three. 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…”
James could see his mother moving like an anxious pale star among the guests in her lilac dress, greeting each of them warmly, welcoming them to her home. She had not glamoured herself to look her husband’s age for the evening, and she appeared enormously young, though her hair was done up like a gracious older woman’s, not a girl’s. When Will materialized out of the crowd and came to put his arm around Tessa, smiling down at her, the gray at his temples flashed like silver. James looked away; he loved his parents for being extraordinary, but sometimes he also hated them for the same thing.
What if Magnus and Alec adopt an abandoned warlock baby (as baby warlocks often get thrown out) who grows up with little pointy cat ears and Alec adores her and Magnus buys her all sorts of glittery and fashionable outfits but when she is a teenager she goes through a grunge phase and only wears Alec’s old black hoodies and Alec is secretly really chuffed and Magnus just rolls his eyes at the pair of them
Yesterday, I announced that I’m going on my first solo tour. I’ll be reading an excerpt from my new book, The Dregs (Fall 2015 yup yup) at every stop, but I feel bad that I can’t see all yo faces in all the places so I thought I’d share a short (very short) teaser here.
This is a quick exchange between Kaz and Inej. I’ve talked a bit about Kaz before—gangleader, thief, thug. As for Inej, I’m really looking forward to introducing you to her. She’s a Suli acrobat known as the Wraith and the closest thing Kaz has to a confidante—though they don’t often see eye to eye. She also likes to name her knives.
"Greed is your god, Kaz."
He almost laughed at that. “No, Inej. Greed bows to me. It is my servant and my lever.”
"And what god do you serve, then?"
"Whichever will grant me good fortune."
"I don’t think gods work that way."
This time he did laugh. “I don’t think I care.”
I warned you it would be short!
Come out and visit me on tour to hear more!
Oh and for those of you who have asked what Kaz looks like… When it comes to Shadow and Bone I have to be all careful because of the movie deal, but when it comes to The Dregs… I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT. So, I’m going to share this pic of Joseph Gordon-Levitt from my super secret Dregs inspiration board. *tips hat*
