“I wanted to tell the book thief many things, about beauty and brutality. But what could I tell her about those things that she didn't already know? I wanted to explain that I am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race-that rarely do I ever simply estimate it. I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant.”
Markus Zusak - The Book Thief

Happy September 1st 🍁🍂🍁
I can practically taste the end of summer. As we face this last month head on, what wishes and wonders have you fulfilled from June to August? What do you wish you could have done?
Although I spent most of my summer working, it was full of gloriously sunny mornings, dull moments staring out of windows, laughing, laughing, more laughing, and a timeless passing of the days. It went by so quickly but... that’s what makes the wait for next summer much more enticing. ✨✨
To get yet another tag out of the way (don’t worry, I like these!) I’ll be filling out the #booksicknesstag that @itsafangirlfantasy has sent in my direction: ☠️
☠️ chicken pox (a book I’ll never read again) - Zenith, Flicker and Mist
☠️ flu (a contagious read) - the whole Narnia series
☠️ insomnia (a book you’ll read all night) - The Lunar Chronicles (I know this is a series but I honestly could not put it down for a single second when I first read it last summer, specifically Cress through Winter)
☠️ asthma (a book that took your breath away) - Circe, The Raven Cycle (specifically The Raven Boys because Stiefvater’s writing actually took my breath away)
☠️ homesickness (a book about a trip) - Anne of Avonlea
✨✨
She also tagged me in the #top5maleleads : 🍂
🍂 Gilbert Blythe
🍂 Cassian (not an actual lead but he is to me)
🍂 Lazlo Strange
🍂 Richard Gansey III
🍂 John Ambrose McClaren AND Peter Kavinsky (because I honestly fell in love with John first but I love both of them equally now which sounds bad but oh well)

All these in no particular order.
✨✨
