I hope your December is filled with red scarves and spiced tea and fluffy blankets and fairy lights and late night movies like little women and home alone and evermore by Taylor Swift and Christmas songs and candles and pies and books and mistletoe and candycanes and snow and poetry and sunny mornings and love❤✨

honestly reading jekyll and hyde, pretending i didn't already know the ending, was wild, because while all the characters were looking at the increasingly sketchy situation like “oh man hyde must have some SERIOUS dirt on jekyll that he’s holding over him” and “is hyde his kid he had out of wedlock or something?” and “so hyde is definitely planning to murder jekyll and steal his money,” i was looking at all the details and the way jekyll described hyde and their relationship and i was like......removed from the knowledge of the ending, it really really really sounds like they’re in an extremely fucked-up romantic relationship. like obviously the author couldn’t explicitly go there because victorian england, but i refuse to believe utterson didn’t wonder if they were fucking at least once

trying to reach my reading goal before the year ends!
every time i set up a reading goal i get halfway through it but this year i SWEAR i will do it!!!
my inicial goal was to read 50 books on 2021 - way more than i have ever read in just a year - i have already read 47… so yes, i’m almost there!
i know that for some people 50 books a year is considered very few and for other is a untouchable goal - as it was for me - but just remember that people have different reading speeds and different life occupations so either if you had read 100+ books or 5: congratulations, you’re amazing! I hope you keep reading because this is one of the best things in life!
ps: i forgot to mention but yes i am currently reading city of fallen angels from cassandra clare.

85/100 days of productivity
Today was again a relax day, and I am enjoying chilling and taking care of myself so much. I read first thing in the morning, and finally finished Colorado Kid by Stephen King. Then I watched a movie, and again watching movies in the morning instantly relaxes my brain. In the afternoon I continued working on a diy project for a decoration I am making, I read, I booked an appointment to cut my hair in December, and just chilled a bit. I cannot believe that November is over, it was a month filled with studying, and reading, and I am glad to end it on a self care note. I hope to start December with energy and motivation.

I received an ARC for Lesser Known Monsters of the 21st Century from Tin House at the perfect moment. It was an excellent escape from my coursework. This short story collection is vivid and visceral and gut-wrenching in the best way possible. I adored Fu’s writing and can’t wait to read more of her work. If you like magical realism and speculative fiction then this collection is for you. It comes out February 2022 🤍

My brain: you need to buy a book and everything will be just fine

i understand that authors break grammar rules all the time for stylistic reasons and that there’s probably some big Artistic Reason for some writers forgoing quotation marks....but i’m sorry, if i open a book and there’s no quote marks around the dialogue, i’m closing that book and never opening it back up

“You don’t think monster girls and wicked boys deserve love?”
I’m back with some jurdan art based on the painting La Belle Dame Sans Merici by Frank Dicksee! Insta cropping sucks, but thankfully I can post the whole thing here. This is probably my favorite thing I’ve drawn so far, so I hope you enjoy!
