Look at me, putting out all these awesome Halloween posts. I’ve never loved dressing up. I love the idea of it, but the actual execution always fell flat for me. It doesn’t stop me from imaging all the cool costumes I could have and I love seeing other people’s book character related costumes! Here are some book characters that I would love to dress up if I actually dressed up haha.
I found this show in an incredibly hard time in my life. It was something to distract me and something that made me happy. I’ve followed Supernatural for the last three years and in that time my love for the show has only lessened. It’s for a lot of reasons, but their just my opinions. I will probably always love this show, but I’m not sure if I can keep looking past its downfalls.
James Mills isn’t sure he can forgive his parents for dragging him away from his life, not to mention his best friend and sister, Anna. He’s never felt so alone. Enter Tomas. Falling for Tomas is unexpected, but sometimes the best things in life are. Then their world splits apart. A war that has been brewing finally bursts forward, filled with violence, pain, and cruelty. James and Tomas can only rely on each other as they decide how far they are willing to go―and who they are willing to become―in order to make it back to their families.
Oh yeah, this sounded like the perfect blend of thriller, historical fiction, with queer characters in there for good measure. I’ve never heard of a book that sounded like this one and I was excited to give it a try!
The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around—and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever. What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving? The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo’s dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?
OH YEAH I READ IT! After months of hearing incredible things and of seeing it on my shelf and wondering if I would like it, I finally picked up Strange the Dreamer. I went in knowing next to nothing about this world. I am happy to report that I have fallen deeply in love with everything to do about this story. Everybody who gushes about this story is completely right and the hype is so worth it.
