Hello moving and $$$ bullshit is, as usual, making me incredibly anxious (it’s still going to be fine even if we get ZERO! honeymoon tithings from rich relatives, but oh man is it going to be Rough Going before I get paid, HOPEFULLY with my first installment coming at the beginning of September instead of the end of September (but also probably at the end))
As I calculate it, I will have to drop close to $6K on security deposit and first two months of rent ALONE before I get paid regardless of which property I choose (and gets back to me)
Also moving (at least $4K, $3k of which is reimbursable, at least... but not until Sept 1) (note to self: keep receipts to deduct from taxes)
Also honeymoon (hello rich relatives pls pay for it thanks) (will they also pay for moving costs. Is that something I can put on my registry)
Also whatever other bullshit is happening moneywise, like fucking July’s rent and having to board Artemis for a month (and lol they ONLY TAKE CASH)
MEANWHILE I’m just fucking trying to exist and reassure the member of the household who has actually gotten a paycheck this month that everything is going to be fine AND ALSO reassure myself of that AND ALSO trying to remember other details that I’m forgetting, probably (like contacting the towncar rental place I requested a quote from, and getting the address of our Denver Airbnb from scone, and contacting the other houses that I applied for, among other things)
#I understand but not super appreciative that now is the time dad is encouraging me to pay my own way for things#dad this is like the one time that I CANT#my last paycheck was at the end of may and it was $800.#I am DYING#everything’s gonna be fine. it’s gonna be fine! it’s gonna be fine.#I just need to take a propranolol and go to bed#because I’m also sleep deprived and have a headache so everything feels a million times worse#I’m very sorry scone I am trying to think sexy thoughts but my entire being is on shutdown hibernate mode#and I know that you say it’s fine but I have Trauma about this and it’s ALSO making me anxious#aaaaaaanywaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy#just want to be smooth brain no thoughts#even during my ‘nap’ today I couldn’t sleep because I kept jerking myself awake#I kept dreaming that I was throwing tennis rackets over the fence at the courts in the park#need to get the boy in my bed. but. to cuddle and tell me everything is fine.#I’m trying not to do the Anxiety Shutdown but it is very hard#also wait a minute stepdad said that he and mom would help with honeymoon since they didn’t for the wedding#okay that might be better. I’ll feel better if that can show up in my bank account/registry.#also there may be fewer than 50 people at my wedding which tbh. not bad.#but ugh it’s partly because the mom of a family friend is in hospice and so obviously they no longer know if they can make it#I just want to BE AT the stressful party. make it stop causing me stress please and thank you.

“Gwyn whispered, “I am the rock against which the surf crashes.” Nesta straightened at the words, as if they were a prayer and a summons. Gwyn lifted the blade. “Nothing can break me.”
..
🕯This book stayed a lot in my mind for several reasons, and it may sound like a negative criticism but I needed to highlight few points I couldn’t get it out of my mind, but for some reason I liked the book cuz of Nesta and her friends. SJM took all my favourite characters and ruined them in this book and I cannot get over it.
..

🕯Mental illness is not something to be corrected, not something to be forced to heal from, it takes time, patient and a lot of care. The way Nesta’s depression, self-hatred and PTSD was dealt with in this book is a shame. The journey itself, description and endless cycle is astounding but the way it was dealt with is a NO for me.
..
🕯People with mental illness may feel bad about themselves when reading this book thinking maybe this is how people around them feel, maybe I should just be normal and try to live, there is nothing called “normal” and I know that cuz I suffer depression myself and I found this book insulting. Nesta is the one who saved herself, no one helped her. She made friends by herself, friends who actually listened to her and did not mistreat her or forced to be someone she does not want to be. She is her own saviour.
..
🕯 Nesta’s depression and trauma should have been emphasised not with poetic, lyrical paragraphs and smut but with an explanation and understanding. She finds it hard to cope, deal with her complicated feelings cuz she has depression. And in this book cuz of all the above, it needed to include how characters understood what she went through eventually (like Gwyn, Emerie and Cassian who actually had a glimpse from what she suffered and did not judge her or abandoned her) and came in terms with her battles.

🪦A Court of Silver Flames- Sarah J. mass
✨Nesta squeezed the charms in her palm, closing her eyes “I wish for us to have the courage to go out into the world when we are ready, but to always be able to find our back to each other. No matter what.” ✨
🪦I have always paid attention to Nesta’s character and how underestimated her suffering is, always portrayed as the oldest, cruel and cold-hearted sister who neglected her family, but it has always been obvious that she was in pain, her character is different from Elain and Fyre, she was born a wolf and forced to hide her claws.
🪦Her journey was astonishing, how she dealt with her trauma, depression and self-hatred is remarkable, completely different from Fyre, and it deserves the 620 pages that took her to heal, though book was fast paced despite the length. I HATE how the Inner circle especially Fyre dealt with Nesta’s depression, it was so FURIOUS, and every time they mention or speak to her either disrespectfully or scorn her. She needed support from her sisters and they were not there. Inviting her to a part and keep insisting she live her life and join them doesn’t count as help. Chapter 50 was tearful for me, her emotional collapse and when everything was clashed. The friendship she developed with Emerie and Gwyn is momentous and I feel in love with them, their background and personality, they’re the ones who provided her with the support she needed to heal. The House of Wind was a character itself and I am a sucker for setting-become-character.
🪦Cassian and Nesta relationship development was distinctive, how Cassian had faith in her and kept reaching and waiting for her even when her own family did not, though I was not a big fan of the several smut scenes not cuz of smut but cuz at some point it was just too much (though in some points cuz his was I wanted to shove Truth Teller in his guts and make him swallow it🙂)
🪦There was no much of the plot and it was not a huge part of this book, a lot of retrospective scenes and again with the repetitive words “could have sworn” is growing old
Rating ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
🔥Tell me are you an Illyrian or a Valkyrie ? For sure I am an Valkyrie ♥️

❄️A Court of Frost and Starlight- Sarah J. Mass
..
“I have to create, or it will all be for nothing. I have to create because I have no other way of voicing it.”
..
❄️Celebrating Winter Solstice with the Inner Circle was the best relaxing reading I could ever wish for. Their mundane life, though disturbed a little by their effort weaving peace was quite joyful.
..
❄️The only part I did not like was the lack of understanding from Feyre and most of the Inner Circle (save Amren and sometimes Cassian) towards Nesta. They all stood next to Feyre and praised her for her courage while facing her terrors, yet neglected Nesta and treated her poorly during the celebration. They did not reach out enough for her, Feyre only went to invited her to the celebration but did not go as far as that, she did not understand beyond that her sister is masking her trauma and horrific events she had witnessed during war and her experience with the Cauldron especially that her father was killed in front of her, helplessly. Feyre opened her heart and helped citizens of Velaris but did not do as much with Nesta, her sister. Also Lucien’s situation and Feyre pushing him, not everyone has to heal or wear their hearts on their sleeves all the time.
..
❄️Rating: ⭐️⭐️/5
..
❄️Guess my goal in finishing the series during this month is coming true, I am not wasting any time and will jump right into ACOSF I have heard that a lot of Nessian are included and I am a BIG fan of them🥺♥️♥️♥️..
..
❄️Have you ever read any book or series this fast??👀👀

🪞A Court of Wings and Ruin- Sarah J. Mass
..
“It's a rare person to face who they are and not run from it, not be broken by it.”
..
🪞Flying through the pages of this book was never easy. I heard a lot that ACOMAF is the best book in the series but this one is so far my fav. I dreaded my fast pace reading as I predicted my heart may shatter in the end. A lot of scenes were very impactful, especially the interactions between Nesta and Fyre as their relationships started to have more vivid lines.
🪞 Plot twists were spotless and I never saw any of it comings, and the small adventures outside the battlefield that took place were amusing (i.e. how Fyre went to capture the Suriel, how she went to retrieve the mirror)
Tumblr media
..
🪞One of the many things that kept me in awe is the descriptions and presentation of several courts, predominantly furnishing the narrative with several illustrations of images that come to Fyre’s mind whenever she encounters an important moment, and characters that were introduced with their stories and backgrounds (Lucien’s one was 😲 for me, Mor’s was heartbreaking I sobbed🥺) adding life to the cast, making mistakes and bad calls and showing their vulnerable side was 🤌🏻
..
🪞Again with the repetitive words is the downside but this time was “I could have sworn” it was too much and would have preferred a lot of either the predictions/statement was just written directly I usually challenged myself at some pages how many “I could have sworn” will read😂😂
..
🪞Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
🪞I hope A Court of Frost and Starlight have sole mundane activities of the characters I am exhausted and drained from battle and I want a chill day with the Inner Circle. ♥️

🌌A Court of Mist and Fury- Sarah J. Mass
..
“Why does anything cling to something? Maybe they love wherever they’re going so much that’s worth it. Maybe they’ll keep coming back, until there’s only one star left. Maybe that one star will make the trip forever, out of the hope that someday–if it keeps coming back often enough– another star will find it again.”
Tumblr media
..
🌌This was far better than the first book as a lot of fans mentioned, and in my opinion this what made the series worth the hype.
..
🌌World building became much richer and clearer in this part, I fell in love with the cast characters and their background and how each was written to emphasise their own voice especially where a lot of female characters were represented in bigger and stronger roles(Mor is a QUEEN♥️) not to mention that pacing was far better and much more events that was not bored to follow.
..
🌌One of the leading points it doesn’t romanise the toxic love stories/ relationships which is based on the Alpha Male protects his Female at any costs even on her freedom expense (aka Fyre and Tamlin) wether Feyre herself realised it or Rhysand voiced it. The portrait of several critical points as well was evocative such as Feyre mental fallout and her PTSD which she went through was outstanding, yes she is the CurseBreaker and she freed the courts from Amarantha but I loved how her guilt was depicted and how she healed properly and took her time emerging victorious, chapter 30 broke me into tears 😭. Also the representation that men can be abused sexually (Rhysand suffering under the mountain was not underestimated)
🌌what I wish it was a bit improved is the repetitive of words, snarl, growl, purred were mentioned a lot to point I counted 5 in one page 😂😂.
🌌Rating ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
🌌I am starting A Court of Wings and Ruin which by the end of this one sounds like I signed a petition for a lot of sleepless nights a head. Who is your fav character in the series, mine is Mor♥️😁.

little  notes  about  the  court  of  dreams
Tumblr media
valora  still  practices  odinism  (  worships the norse gods  )  but  nearly  every  religion  imaginable  is  practiced  in  the  home  because  it’s  residents  come  from  all  over  the  world  /  many  different  eras  .  there’s  usually  a  holiday  being  celebrated  at  least  once  a  week  .
there are at least three humanoid species living there at all times  :  vampire  ,  human  ,  and shifter  .  there have also been dhampeirs and maybe even witches  /  warlocks  .
there are two below ground levels that were added on in the early 20th century  .  one was specifically built to lock down  (  for it’s human inhabitant’s safety  )  in case of an out of control vampire  /  shifter  .  prior to this they used a wing on the third floor  .
there are extensive gardens that valora has been cultivating since she settled on the property around 4,000 bc  .  
nearly every language ever known to the world is spoken there  ,  many conversations are had using several different languages at once  .
family members gather to play instruments and  /  or sing nearly everyday  ,  sometimes in the gardens or in a parlor  .

I would love Rhysand for an eternity just for these lines.
Despite being mates, and his primal instinct to protect her there is always a choice.
This is truly the difference between love and possession.
Too much love is a poison.
“You might be my mate,” he said, “but you remain your own person. You decide your fate—your choices. Not me. You chose yesterday. You choose every day. Forever.”
It is so important to be your own person in a relationship.

I am not breathing either 😭
My heart stopped beating.
I wasn’t sure I was breathing.
“I painted stars and the moon and clouds and just endless, dark sky.”
“I never knew why. I rarely went outside at night—usually, I was so tired from hunting that I just wanted to sleep. But I wonder … ” I pulled out the seventh and final arrow. “I wonder if some part of me knew what was waiting for me.
I thought nothing of them, until one of the images was of a hand … This beautiful, human hand. Holding a brush. Painting—flowers on a table.”
And that time, I pushed a thought back. Of the night sky—of the image that brought me joy when I needed it most. Open night sky, stars, and the moon. I didn’t know if it was received, but I tried, anyway.”

Tam Tam is the king of saying no
Feyre : " I want to go.”
Tamlin : “No.”
Feyre : “It’s been three months. Nothing’s happened, and the village isn’t even five miles—”
Tamlin : “No.”
Lucien : " Let's train her abilities, give her a chance"
Tamlin : " No"
