But I loved the library simply because it was a library. I love libraries. I like reading, but I love libraries. Being surrounded by books makes me feel safe, the way some people need trees or mountains around them to feel secure. Not me – nature’s not what I cling to. I cling to books.

Hi ^_^ sorry this isn't a question but I just wanted to thank you for your spectacularly wonderful kind comment on my Eleanor cosplay post and that it really means so much, I was so nervous not many people were going to like it. You really made this moment so memorable, thank you, you are a truely beautiful person ^_^

Awwww!!! I’m so glad. I’m serious though. When I saw your picture I legitimately started crying because I could see Eleanor in you. You are GORGEOUS and exactly how I pictured Eleanor when I read the book. I’m just glad that I could make you smile by telling the truth :) Keep on smiling!

Alright! This is a my photoset of me closet cosplaying as Eleanor Douglas from Rainbow Rowells YA Novel “Eleanor & Park" I would love to read some feed back from anyone, especially people who have read the book!

The only photo I edited is the center profile, for Eleanors eyes are brown and mine are blue. This is the site I used to edit them [x]

This is the site I made the photo set from [x]

My outfit was inspired by [x] [x] [x]

Maybe share it with Rowell herself? Tumblr Twitter

Thanks! Let me know what you all think! ^_^

WOW. Your hair and freckles are gorgeous, and you make an adorable Eleanor!

WHOA!! Excellent cosplay!! YOUR HAIR. (I love red hair and freckles so much. Hence me writing a book where I got to describe them in detail over and over.)

I’m gonna cry. You’re so beautiful.

The Elite by Kiera Cass

The Elite by Kiera Cass

Date Finished: April 16 2014
Date Published: April 23rd 2013

Publisher: HarperTeen
Genre: Dystopia 
Series: The Selection #2
Pages: 323

Summary:

Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Iléa.

America still isn’t sure where her heart lies. When she’s with Maxon, she’s swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can’t dream of being with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over—and time is running out for America to decide.

Just when America is sure she’s made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.

Review:

  • Story-line:  I was really afraid to pick up this book because it is one of those that has had a lot of mixed reviews. I know people who LOVE LOVE LOVED this book and than others who would rather get rid of this book. I enjoyed this book a lot. It was most definitely a bridge book but it was one of the better bridge books I’ve read. I didn’t enjoy this book as much as the first but it was still really good.
  • Characters: I think at least five times while reading this book, all of the important characters really made me upset. America was REALLY annoying but some of it was understandable because she is in a really hard place and other times it was just her being annoying. Maxon was controlling at times and that really threw me off because I didn’t remember him being this frustrating in the first book. And, Aspen does not listen to America and he doesn’t really believe in her. It really makes me upset. It also made me upset that America could jump between them so easily. If I had to choose, I would be teem Maxon, but  don’t even know if I can claim that.
  • Writing: Good, not amazing, but fun.
  • Ending: It was interesting. (I can’t talk about it too much because of spoilers.)
  • Extras: I really just want to know how this ends.

Does anyone else wonder about the last book you’ll ever get to read?  I wonder which book will be the last I hold tenderly, read eagerly, and place on table fondly.  Which will be the last book I read before I die.  I’ll never find out it seems.

"A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face she inquired, “How heavy is this glass of water?” The answers called out ranged from 8oz to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If i hold it for a minute, its not a problem. If i hold it for an hour, i’ll have an ache in my arm. If i hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer i hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a big longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything.” Always remember to put the glass down."
