“i think there’s something about being a young woman that feels very murderous. that’s what i was trying to get with a song like ‘dream girl evil.’ it can be dangerous for people to think you’re incredibly nice. when you get, ‘you’re an angel,’ that seems like such a high place to fall from. when i see messy or violent or terribly behaved women, especially young women, there’s a liberation. to not have to try and survive by being good.”
— florence welch on her song “dream girl evil”

Pile 1 (Dean)
I need to start over - I don’t know why - I can’t get the words right - I signed up for that - not chasing you anymore - if only people saw the real you - something bad always happens - you never listen to me - I hate that I’m still so attached to you - I want to savor every kiss every touch - I really love you - knee deep in love - it’s like you can see my soul (rx) - my friends and family love you - I could lie here forever
I keep typing what I really want to say but I end up deleting the truth. You’re as fragile as glass and I have to use my words carefully. Our relationship is toxic. You never listen to me. I keep trying to fix you. I can’t do this anymore. We’re so codependent and obsessed with being together. I even wanted a family with you.
It hurts to be with you and it hurts to be without you. You’re a part of me and it feels like I’m tearing out my own heart. But every time we try again something bad happens. I’m not chasing you anymore, don’t manipulate me with your tears. Don’t start throwing things and playing the victim. You’re like night and day when things don’t go your way. You’ve already taken so much from me.
How?! Why does this keep happening!! Over and over. I know you have those issues with your parents or your ex and it’s hard for you to stay balanced. It’s my fault too. Bc I lead you on. I cannot stop wanting you oh my god it’s like a burning inside me. I want to keep tasting you. I want to lie with you forever and savor every kiss, every touch. Because I love you. I f*****g love you! It feels like you’re all I’ve ever known. I see you and love all of you. But you don’t see me. You don’t see how I hurt. Because you’re so blinded by the pain, or maybe you’re plain selfish, I don’t know but it’s hurting me.
You’ve drained me. I can’t do this anymore. I’m tired of running in circles. I have to take control of my life, my happiness. It’s time for me to start over and learn to live.
Channeled songs and lyrics✨

“I find it hard to find someone like you. Send your location, come through.” Streets - Doja Cat
“This can’t be love because I feel so well. No sobs, no sorrows, no sighs.” This Can’t Be Love - Natalie Cole
“Yeah, I can't get no sleep. I look so good in green. I run, I run, I run (I run, I run). And I don't have no more dreams. I drive around on my own. Feel dead, but I feel my bones (my bones). I hide out on my throne (my throne). Open up, now my cover's blown” NO FUN by Joji

Pile 2 (Sam)
F*** I want a do over - I’m resisting - stubborn- I won’t let myself - you’re my favorite- it’s hard not to be biased - oh f*** me! - negative thoughts come first - I’m so f******g scared of you - now we’re even - don’t kick me when I’m down - why haven’t you given up on me - I don’t care if you’re seeing someone else - why can’t I be like the rest of them ? - I have to many issues to be in a relationship. No one would want me - I don’t wanna fall in love it’s not REAL - sorry it’s my crippling anxiety- is it okay if I cry? Would you think less of me? - I love your eyes - I promise I’ll be the best you’ve ever had - wait , you love that too? - strong and proud - that laugh is contagious - I’m cool, you’re cool. So? - you mean so much to me. I’m so grateful to have you - well I didn’t expect that to happen - old texts - obsessed in a good way? - what’s the next step? I’m ready!
There’s so much I’m hiding from you. This is gonna be a mouthful. I’m kinda scared to express myself, I feel vulnerable. I have so much anxiety and I don’t know why? Why do I feel this way ? I didn’t expect this from you. From us. FROM ME? Feelings. They frustrate me. I don’t want to say this but I have too. I can feel you getting impatient with me, I’ll spit it out now.
You mean a lot to me. You’re like the aid that relieves me. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I’m grateful to have ever had you in my life. I feel like I got a taste of what we could be. I don’t let my thoughts go there, but when I do I think we’d be so good together.
I was the master pessimist. I was the grumpy old troll under the bridge, the player, the narcissist, whatever, it wasn’t good. I didn’t know what real love was until you showed me. I thought I could never love someone the way I love you… oh… I said the L word didn’t I. Well it’s true. I love you, no matter how hard I deny it. You’ve changed me so much, it scares me. I don’t want to be toxic anymore. I want to be healed. I want to be happy… with you.
I wanna see your gorgeous smile and hear that contagious laugh. I’d never tell you this in person but when you laugh over the phone I have the biggest grin on my face. I love the way your eyes sparkle, or how they shine after you cry, you’re my baby. I just want to take care of you.
Your light opened my eyes, you showed me the world was beautiful. You are my favorite person. No one can compare. You helped me remember that I’m alive. I’m human.
I thought we were so different, but have so much in common don’t we ? I miss you. I miss talking to you. I miss being around you. I still read our old texts.
I can’t believe you did this to me. I feel kinda pissed off. I thought I had so much control and you just pulled the rug from underneath me. It makes me feel like a b***h. Sorry I have such a potty mouth. This is all new to me. I’m feeling so much because of one person. F***!! I LOVE YOU!! This is so shocking for me to experience! IT FEELS LIKE A PANICKED EPIPHANY!! AAHH! God, I’m so being so dramatic, or am I self conscious about my feelings?
Sometimes I feel like crying but it makes me feel ashamed. Or it feels like I don’t deserve to because I’m the one who screwed up. Are you really gone? I know we agreed on a break but now I can’t think straight without you. I wonder how you are. I wonder if you have someone. I don’t care. You and I can just be friends until you and whatstheirname breaks up. As long as we’re together some way somehow.
I know, I’m cocky, that hasn’t changed. You know I’m the chasing type, I won’t stop unless you tell me to. I’ll be the person you need. I’ll be the best partner you’ve ever had if you would just give me another chance. Please, wait for me. I’m building myself, I’m self reflecting, I’m becoming strong. I just hope I’m not too late. I know that if I try hard enough, if I do the work I can win you back. I feel like you still love me, because i remember what it felt like. It was strong. Just you wait baby, I will have you. I’m coming. I hope you have someplace in your heart left for me.
Everything is crazy right now. Every time I think I’m ready to approach you, I get cold feet or something comes up. I feel in a rush to get to you. I want to claim you. I want you to be mine. I want us to be on good terms again. I was so cold in the beginning and now all I want is to be yours.
Hold me. I’m sorry. I was so stupid. I feel like a child that needs love. You were so nurturing to me, and without you I feel cold and bare. You understand me and my past. You showed me that I didn’t have to carry that negative energy. It must have something to do with that inner child thing you mentioned.
I am KICKING myself. Just don’t join in when I confess my feelings. Let me down easy if you reject me, I don’t think my heart could take a beating. I want to start over and take the next step with you. Please let me in, I won’t squander it this time.

Pile 3 (Rowena)
your happiness first - I have a lot to say - let’s split up - I’m sorry I tried to change you - you’re dead to me - looking for love in all the wrong places- is it okay if I cry? would you think less of me? - she had it comin - my money my house - I was abused as a child - I wanna remember everything in case I never see you again - taking you off the shelf - somethings wrong with my phone. it doesn’t have your number in it - what’re you smiling at ? - I wanna give you love letters and the whole shabang! - I love myself therefore I know how to love others - thank you for being there for me - you’re all I need - I may or may not stalk your social media - consent is important to me. is it okay if I do this? - all for you - this can’t be love
I’ve been thinking a lot about us. I’m scatterbrained trying to find out how I feel. I just wanna make sure that I’m communicating clearly.
I want to apologize. Before we broke up… before I broke it off… no…before you left me… my ego was in shambles. You were the one picking me up off the ground. I didn’t see my own value, I was in too much pain to see yours, i couldn’t see the value in life. I was looking for a distraction but I can’t help but be focused on our past and how I’ve treated you. I really am sorry.
In the time I’ve spent alone I realize how my past, my upbringing has made my heart callused and fearful.
I was afraid you’d leave me, and yet I sabotaged our relationship until you reached your limit. I pushed you off a cliff then acted out as if it were your fault. I was bad news. I was pressuring you into things you didn’t wanna do, forcing you to be someone else. I was emotionally unstable, overly possessive and controlling. You were right to leave me.
My heart is heavy because I can’t leave the past in the past. I still love you. I want to show you how much I’ve changed. It’s not about validation, it’s about growth. I’ve learned to love and understand myself. I have you to thank. Thank you for the times you helped me express my emotions. I could cry right now thinking about the relief and the love you gave me. You were so loyal and dedicated to helping me. I can’t love anyone if I don’t understand love’s value. You taught me that.
Don’t jump to conclusions when I say this but I would love to see you again, even if it’s the last time. I want to apologize in person. We won’t hug if you don’t want to. Anything you say. I just want you comfortable and honest. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want anything more if we decide to meet up. Like I said, I still love you. You’re all I’ve ever needed. If you’ll allow it, I would treat you like you are the best thing. I would give you my heart. Consent is really important to me, is it okay if I tell you this? If my saying “I love you” is too much I can stop. If you decide you wanna be friends or strangers I can respect that. But I’m hoping you reconsider. We can take it really slow.
I don’t think I have your number anymore. I watch you on your social media instead. You look good. You look busy. Happy in your photos with friends. I wonder what you’re smiling at when you take those candid photos. I wonder if I’ve scarred you. I wonder if you think about it too. I’m really sorry. I wonder if you have someone new. I’d hate to impose and be “that ex” and message you out of nowhere. If you have someone that respects you and you’re happy, I’ll back off. I wont look back.
I wish you’d text me instead. I really want to tell you the truth, and let you know how you changed me. I’m hurting because we ended on bad terms and you probably still think I’m this monster who ruined you.
I want so badly to reach out but I’m unsure of how you’ll react. I have a clear mind now, I’m not scattered anymore. I know how I feel, I want take full accountability, I feel guilty. It makes me sick how I acted. I am sorry. Let me know how you feel about this, no pressure to reply. If you ghost me I’ll know the answer. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Hope to hear from you soon.

Pile 4 (Castiel)
I’m exhausted am I gonna make it? - I will nurture you - you build me up - I wanna spoil you - is that what you think of me ? - if only you could see yourself through my eyes - I wanna be yours - I have loved many but not like this- you’re so adorable- we’ve come a long way. every moment was worth what we have now - text me when you’re free- it’s like you can see my soul - everyday is the same - I don’t wanna fall in love it’s not REAL - it’s the anniversary- looking for love in all the wrong places- I’m so sorry baby- make the first move I’m too afraid of rejection- I know you deserve better but I can’t let you go - I’m not the same after you - sorry it’s my crippling anxiety
To be honest I didn’t think much of you when we first met. I thought you were a pretty face, another notch on my belt, or potential one nighter. I didn’t really believe in love. I thought *shrug* it’s something you see in movies. Because I could run through person, after person, after person. I loved them but the flame would always die out. I was bored with trying to find love tbh. So when you came into my life I wasn’t expecting much, maybe just a good run lol. But now the crazy thing is… I can’t stop thinking about you. You blow me away. You’re a nut, I love it. I don’t understand how you could tolerate me for so long. I’m such a hardheaded, ignorant, jack**s sometimes, but you still see the good in me.
I’ve been attracted to you since we met and I made sure you knew that. You kept it friendly with me and made sure I stayed in my lane. Why would I reject you if I was so into you?
I rejected your love because I was scared of… idk love? I have never felt like this before so I freaked out. I told myself my feelings for you were just my old pals lust and loneliness holding hands but it was a lie I was telling myself. I realize now that I like you a lot. I like talking to you, you’re not just another number in my phone. I think about you even when you’re away which I don’t do with other people? Usually the people I connect with are just kinda there but you’ve become a part of my life. I started to want you and in every way if you know what I’m saying. It’s a good thing you kept those boundaries or we wouldn’t be able to have this amazing connection.
The truth this I’ve been harboring feelings for you for a long time. It’s funny how we have the same problem. Low self esteem *shrug*, crazy right? You think I’m beautiful and I think you’re beautiful but we have a hard time believing it. You really are beautiful though, inside and out. You make my heart glow, you know that? I’m a whole different person with you, I feel love. Everything is so dull when you’re not around.
Wanting you makes me feel guilty because I know you deserve better than me. You always told me to “never settle for potential” when I was running around with other people and expecting to turn rocks into gold. So when I think of us as a couple, I feel like I’m a rock that you mistake for gold. Selfishly I still flirt with you to keep your attention. I like that you take time out of your day to text or call me. You’re mine, body and soul. You rock my world I can’t say it enough.
I can’t believe you told me you love me. I held it inside but I felt like there was an explosion inside me. I wanted you to say it again and again. I wanted to say it back to you. You know … the L word. I sewed my mouth shut instead. I was afraid to say it because I know that it’s true this time. It’s raw, it’s real, and it scares me. I feel like you already know, you know that I L word you, and you’re waiting for me to say it.
You see right through me. How are you doing that? Are you magic? It’s like you can see my soul. Sometimes you say the words just as I’m thinking them or you tell me about myself, reading me like a book. Sometimes I think you’re watching me, either that or you’re psychic or something lol.
I don’t know what’s gotten into me. One day I’m trying to forget you and the next I’m ready to text you and tell you my truth. And the truth is I wanna be yours. I want to protect you, I want to be your hero. I wanna show you that everyday I’m a better person. I will be strong for you. I want you to always feel safe with me. I want you to take my hand and never let go. The truth is I don’t want anyone else but you. I can see us on getaway trips, visiting families on holidays, kissing in the car, grocery shopping… you picking out a ring. I wanna give you everything I have to give. I wanna hold you when you’re sad, I wanna buy you gifts, leave you little notes of encouragement around the house, I wanna come home to you and fall asleep in your arms. My heart is with you.
I want to nurture you and this thing we have. Not a thing. A relationship. I want a committed relationship, just you and I, no games.
I know I’ve been through so many relationships and one nighters but they’re all one big blur compared to what I have with you. Ah, whatever you might not even believe me if I told you. F**k, why did I let you believe a lie! I’m sorry baby. I wish I could kiss you right now. I want to stop fighting these feelings. I know how I feel but I don’t know what to do now. If I don’t do something you might move onto someone else.
If only I could give you subtle hints that you’d understand, then maybe you’ll know what I’m thinking and kiss me. No, ugh! I need a plan, I need make a move. Too much time is going by, I need to do something.

Finished The Great Gatsby. I loved the shifting figure of the titular character, always seen via a distorting medium, through the bottom of a glass, beneath the surface of a pool, reflected in the chrome trim of some fabulous motor car. Slipped down very easily.

I read in a pop-science book called How We Learn that both hard problem-solving and creative projects work best when started as early as possible and interrupted as often as possible. Starting the project, even if you’re just making notes, flips the brain into a kind of open mode, where everything seems to have relevance to your project. When you’re in open mode, work happens even when you’re not actively “working”—indeed, all evidence suggests that you do your best work when you’re not trying. Maybe you’ve experienced this while working on a problem—you drive yourself nuts over it, finally give up, and then have your epiphany while playing a video game. In many ways the unconscious mind is smarter, and more creative, than the conscious one.

I recently started reading the “Musketeers Mystery” series by Sarah D’Almeida. Aside from the garish covers and sometimes weirdly OOC behavior of our four and a sore lack of editing in general the series isn’t completely… uh …. useless. (Don’t judge me; I take my Muskie content where I can find it, alright?)
Book one, Death of a Musketeer, was entertaining enough for € 2,39, and, sometimes, the author manages surprisingly fitting internal monologue. And there’s enough amusement involved - even if not always intentional.
I started book two tonight, The Musketeer’s Seamstress, and what can I say?
It starts with a naked Aramis jumping out of his married lover’s bedroom window - after she’s been murdered while Aramis went next door to take a leak. 😆 With Aramis now being the prime suspect in this locked room murder mystery, it is up to Athos, Porthos and d’Artagnan to save their friend from getting hanged. 🙈
Sound familiar? 🤣
I couldn’t not read this. I mean, of course I couldn’t! *chuckles*
I’m a few chapters in now, and while this certainly isn’t Dumas, and there’s much better fan fiction out there, I’m having a blast!
Anybody care about reading updates?
*gets popcorn and continues reading*

“[weil] teaches the uncomfortable truth that the unbelief of many atheists is closer to a true love of God and a true sense of his nature, than the kind of easy faith which, never having experienced God, hangs a label bearing his name on some childish fantasy or projection of the ego.”

✨ Mid-Year Book Tag ✨
Thank you for the tag @therefugeofbooks! Even though I haven’t read that much, it was nice to look a bit back and ahead with this tag
🍃 Amount of books you’ve read so far: 11, I think it’s my worst year of reading since I started keeping count in 2014
☘️ Best book you’ve read so far in 2022: If rereads count, The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness, if they don’t count, The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
🌾Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2022: Any Way the Wind Blows by Rainbow Rowell
🌵 New release you haven’t read yet but want to: I also haven’t been great at keeping up with new releases so I had to look up what there actually is but I think it has to be I kissed Shara Wheeler by Casey McQuiston
🌻 Most anticipated release for the second half of the year: I was about to say none since Chain of Thorns was pushed back to January 2023. But then I did a bit of googling and even though I was not aware of it before, Carrie Soto is Back by Taylor Jenkins Reid seems somewhat interesting. Though I just started Malibu Rising today and depending how much I end up liking it, I may or may not anticipate Carrie Soto is Back anymore
🌺 Biggest surprise favourite new author (debut or new to you): Matt Haig, I really want to read some of his other books now too
🍀 Newest fictional crush: none
💐 Book that made you cry: Under the Whispering Door by TJ Klune
🌲 Book that made you happy: I feel like I haven’t read a lot of outright happy books so I’m gonna pick a slightly different angle and say The Midnight Library again, as it seems to have picked me somewhat out of the slump, which is making me very truly happy
🌿 Most beautiful book you’ve bought so far this year (or received): I have bought only two physical books this year and neither of them is especially beautiful but let’s say Afterlives by Abdulrazak Gurnah
🍂 What books do you need to read by the end of the year? Oh boy. I was planning on doing my library’s reading challenge again as it had fun categories last year and encouraged me to read more diversely. But, as I won’t get there in numbers, I’m not too motivated to follow it otherwise either. I think just need to read books that interest me enough to keep me out of the slump. And well also I want to find the courage to read La Gloire de mon père by Marcel Pagnol, as that is the other book I bought and it would be a nice way to keep my French skills active
Edit: actually if anyone has any reading challenges with prompts (up to 25) to recommend, I would be happy to get some!
I tag @thereadingchallengechallenge, @petrareads, @letthebookbegin, @agardenandlibrary and @sleepyreads! Have fun with this if you want

☀️ Sunny Reading Tag ☀️
Tumblr media
Thank you for tagging me @yourneighborhoodbibliophile​!
🥞 Favourite book
I tend to not really do favourites, but the first two that spring to mind are The Gods of Tango by Carolina de Robertis and Circe by Madeleine Miller.
🌾 Tropes that make you go "asfgrthgj"
Couples/Groups of people with a past in common who’re then reunited, found family, grudging rag-tag group of allies-turned-team-turned-friend-turned-family, aaand I’m always a simp for an unhinged lover when their partner is in peril, hurt, gone missing etc.
🌻 Comfort book
Probably a toss between Grace Draven’s Entreat Me, Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden and/or Stephanie Victoire’s The Other World, It Whispers (honestly there’s just something about Victoire’s writing that is so soothing to me, even if the stories aren’t necessarily happy/comforting)
🌙 Death in a book you would take back
Oooh this one is interesting... I can’t really come up with any recent book death that I wish didn’t happen, so I’d have to go a bit back in my reading history to find ones that affected me to that degree. So, while I don’t want to promote the series, I’d probably say Fred Weasley OR the little match girl in H.C. Andersens The Little Match Girl story (my boy H.C. truly did six-year old me dirty by killing her off)
💡 Book you wish you could read again for the first time
Hmm, I’d probably say Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi and/or Butter Honey Pig Bread by Francesca Ekwuyasi. The first I remember as a powerful read and the second I thorougly loved as an audiobook, but now kind of wish I’d given it the time to sit down an immerse myself... OR I might go for Sarah Waters’ Fingersmith or Tipping the Velvet. Her books are just perfect reading experiences for me - you just get sucked in and - unless something literally drags you away - you won’t look up until you’ve finished.
Tagging without pressure: @thelibraryiscool​, @natreadsthings​, @readingoals​, @aliteraryescape​, @aliteraryprincess​, @myonetruebook​ and @mariscranes​ if any of you guys want to do this! 🌻

“what was it about me that had such a death wish? i had such little care for myself. it didn’t matter what i had done the night before, or the week before, or what chaos i had created, i knew if i got to the stage, something there would save me and that i would be absolved. and that song is about that feeling, but also a testament to all the performers i’ve seen turn pain into something so beautiful.”
— florence welch on her song “morning elvis”

Gosta de ler? 📚
Você poderia me recomendar algum livro?
Oii pessoal! Tenho 20 anos e nunca gostei de ler, mas atualmente estou prestes a iniciar minha lista de leitura. Estou tendo inspirações e quero começar logo, mas não sei por qual livro estrear minha lista.
Eu tenho alguns que já quero ler mas quero começar por algum mais simples e que o enredo me envolva, pode ser de qualquer gênero (talvez de fantasia seja uma boa opção).
Deixe nos comentários alguns títulos de livros que seja uma boa ideia para que eu possa adicionar na minha lista e por fim começar a ler. 📖
Muito obrigada pela sua atenção :)

Thank you @maraudorable for the tag! I will never tire of seeing what others are reading and sharing about what I’ve been reading!
I’m in the middle of my summer, therefore I’m the middle of my summer reading! I’ve finished a couple of these, am in the middle of a couple, and hoping to get to the last few lol.
6 books I plan to read (or have read) this summer

if you guys haven't read it, I seriously recommend the book All Our Hidden Gifts by Caroline O'Donoghue
Tumblr media
it's absolutely amazing on so many levels but I'm only going to focus on my favorite thing about the character design of the main character: she's realistically flawed. she has petty flaws and it's relatable while keeping you rooting for her. that's one of the main things that stuck out to me while reading it.
also just look at that cover. gorgeous.

JOMP Book Photo Challenge, February 2022.
Day 8: Fell in Love ❤️
These books have romantic plots - and are among my favourite reads of 2021. So I guess you could say I "fell in love" with them.
