once when i was little, i claimed it was a teacher’s work day so i wouldn’t have to go to school and mom’s not an idiot so of course it didn’t work, but when we got to the school, we found it was a teacher’s work day and that made me think i had super powers so i started trying to kill classmates with my mind to confirm the theory
You thought you had super powers so you immediately attempted to murder everyone
go big or go home
Day 28 - 30 Day Book Challenge
Favorite title of a book.
This book title made me laugh not just because I love puns, but because one of my besties, Jo (small-as-a-world) and I were hanging out one night a couple years ago and her boyfriend-now-husband called us drunk with one of his friends and told us they decided to open a literary themed bar and the first drink they thought of was Tequila Mockingbird. Plus, I really love To Kill A Mockingbird.
I am a reader. I am a writer. People assume I do these things to escape. You couldn’t be more right. I’m escaping a world I don’t like. A world I have no control in. In this world, I am nothing. I am a color, a height, a weight, a number. But in the world of books and writing, I am amazing. I am powerful. I am different. People are better. Worlds are endless. Change is possible. Life is manageable.
Day 27 - 30 Day Book Challenge
The most surprising plot twist or ending.
Not going into if these were plot twist, ending surprises, or some other kind of surprise altogether, but regardless, these books surprised me
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
The Maze Runner by James Dashner - this happened mostly because I didn’t realize until I got to the end that it was part of a series
Most surprisingly infuriating ending? In The Lake of the Woods by Tim O’Brien
