Hi! So the book blog community is probably waaaay huger than I think, and I’ve yet to meet a bunch of you lovely people so if you’re a book blog or post bookish things could you reblog this so I can follow you and we can talk about our favorite books and writing advice together and be best friends? Because that would be amazing

  • People who just don't get it: Holy jeebs, more books?!?!?!
  • Me: You don't understand. Yes, it's about books and how amazing they are and how I want them all. But it's also about the whole culture of it. It's about the tradition of opening a book for the first time, or for a moment of nostalgia. It's the idea that those who need it the most can escape into a book, while the rest of the world meanders by. When we step into bookstores, it isn't just about attaining 1, 2, 3, or 5+ new books, it's about the experience and thrill of being somewhere completely dedicated to books. It's about how a story can bring so many people together.
  • Me: So, it's not just "more books."
  • Me: It's more life.

Me neither! I'm asking precisely because of that ahah :p But I've seen you answer a similar question earlier and you recommended a book called Cruel Beauty and I thinks that's going to be my pick :p Thanks :)

I loved that book! It’s strange and full of weird twists, plus both the characters are borderline evil….but the writing is just so flawless! It’s a retelling of Beauty and the Beast and I was so excited about it haha. I hope you enjoy it!!!!

Hi! Just wondering when you're going to post your recommendations for next month? Thanks!

Very soon :) but since I personally have not read many fairy-tale retellings, would you like to suggest or request any?

So I have a quick question. I recently read Maleficent and I've read Tiger Lily a while ago and now I'm starting to read Beast (I believe that's the name) well basically it's books told in a different pov then the original story. I was wondering if you knew any other books similar to this and what the genre would be called. Or if any if your followers know they can send me a pm. Thank youuu in advance (:

Do you mean a fairy-tale retelling?? There are plenty of those out there! And guess what! This month (August) is fairy-tale retelling month for the Book Genre Challenge!! 

Some personal favorites include:

  • Cinder - Marissa Meyer
  • Scarlet - AC Gaughen
  • Dorothy Must Die - Danielle Paige
  • Cruel Beauty - Rosamund Hodge
  • Entwined - Heather Dixon
  • Just Ella - Margaret Peterson Haddix
  • Ella Enchanted - Gail Carson Levine

But there are hundreds out there! I’ll be posting a more comprehensive list of retellings including some I’m planning to read shortly! Hope this helped a little!

If anyone would like to suggest some more fairy tale retellings, please drop me a recommendation in my mailbox! I can put them on the list! Thanks a bunch!
