  • I’m only about a fifth of the way into The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern, which I’d been hearing excellent things about, but holy hell it’s almost unreadable?? I’m enjoying the story and the ~atmosphere, but apparently neither the author nor the editor has any concept of how to punctuate English prose?? On a single page - often a single paragraph, even - there are multiple instances of sentences that require (perfectly lovely!!) semicolons but only have commas separating the independent clauses, and clauses that clearly require commas that have none. It’s like she downgraded all the punctuation one level and it’s INFURIATING.

    I’m all for playing with the ‘rules’ of grammar when writing stylistically, but this is NOT that (something about how you have to know the rules to break them). It’s clearly meant to be beautiful, dreamlike language, but it’s inconsistent and creates some of the flattest, clunkiest prose I’ve had the displeasure of reading in published fiction.

    I might look for the audiobook, where a proper narrator will hopefully pause and parse the sentences appropriately, which might make it listenable. Otherwise, I cannot get through 400 more pages of execrably punctuated text.

    #it's probably rude to tag this so I won't #but jesus #it's especially upsetting because a book about the importance of stories and storytelling should be right up my alley #but not when it's written like this!!!! #reading#lit#grammar#english

    I liked this all right. I’m not particularly fond of poetry, and a good portion of what is in this anthology went over my head, but it was okay.

    Hello everyone! My spots for free birth chart readings at a glance are closed at the moment. However, if you would like to get a more personal, in depth chart reading I suggest you check out this one.


    I am offering a 5€ birth chart reading on your life’s purpose (approximately 30 mins). 


    *9 SPOTS OPEN*


    More times than not we can get sidetracked, we can be overwhelmed by everything going on in the world around us and therefore forget who we really are, at our core, get confused about where we are going. Is the path I am on the right path? What if I am not in alignment with my purpose? Why do I feel like I am not moving and where do I have blockages? These questions can arise sometimes without us even realizing through feeling tired, discouraged or just plainly bored and sad. A reading like this won’t solve your problems, a reading like this won’t make everything happen for you and it won’t be what you expect it to be. This reading is just designed to empower you, to offer a bit of guidance and to help you remember who you are and where you come from. This reading is meant to give you a small push or maybe just the motivation you’ve been looking for. 


    IN THIS READING YOU WILL GET:

    • a better understanding of your purpose on earth and your higher self
    • how to align with your purpose
    • we will be discussing about your North Node/South Node, your Sun & Moon and any other aspects/degrees/placements that stand out to me that can help you get closer to your path
    • +bonus advice card pulled from my black moon astrology oracle deck

    HOW TO GET A READING:

    1. click on the commissions option in HERE.
    2. after you click the link, you will get all the information to continue, please do not forget to provide your email address so I can contact you back after the payment.
    3. the readings will be scheduled as an interactive audio only or video zoom call! (if that’s what you prefer or we can decide together on another way)
    4. For any questions, send me a message in here. 

    Looking forward to it!! 💖

  • I’ve finished 6 books so far this year. Only 4 of them fit neatly on the Popsugar Reading Challenge list. And that’s okay. They were all YA which says a lot about me.

  • A book by an author who shares your zodiac sign

    The Unbound (The Archived #2) by Victoria Schwab (July 7, Cancer)

    4 stars

    This is only 4 stars because I do not enjoy when a book is continually flashing back. It works in some places in the book but in other places it feels unnecessary, like it doesn’t move the story forward. I felt like this is the perfect sequel and even though people on Good Reads want a third, I do not. This book wrapped up the problems nicely but not totally neatly and believably.

  • i’m really tempted to try and read Concrete Rose in the 2 days before Chain of Iron comes out 👀 it’s only like 323 pages and it’s a physically small book, if i can read half of it later today (cause it’s 2:30am) and half of it tomorrow…. i could finish it before Chain of Iron… i could do it…. right?

  • When I look at my books, it used to make me happy. It used to make me happy because I was proud of how many books I had read and how much more I was going to learn from reading the rest. Now I look at my books and it makes me sad. I’m sad because I don’t have the motivation to read because of the current stress in my life. I don’t want to do much of anything right now but veg out on the t.v. I am sad because I haven’t read many books this year, and there is less to be proud of.

  • “Never trust a person who doesn’t own any books."   I don’t know where I  first heard this but I’m not going to lie, it has often proved true.  


    .


    You cant tell it’s my home (even my bag if we are being real)  by my books. All kinds of books: Fiction, non-fiction, cookbooks, memoirs, poetry, comic books, witch books, pottery books, books on art, history and special additions.  When it comes to books I am equal opportunity.  Books tell us stories, obviously and every story has something to take away from it.  Books teach us to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes and help us develop empathy.   Someone that has books likes to learn, they are willing to listen,  absorb other views and learn.

    We can always learn…even from a grocery store novel.
