Sometimes I think that I could be the beautiful sword wielding girl with a dark past then I have the misfortune of remembering that I'm a fucking nerd who uses books as escapism.

You know what hurts? Most characters in ya books are 16-18. I enjoy reading about them because I aspire to be like them, to have adventures like them. They are all older than me, there is still scope my life is headed towards something good, something new. I look at these characters for inspiration and maybe I’ll find love like them, a family like their’s, they are older than me, good things await me. 
But eventually, some day I’ll grow up and authors will still write about 18 year olds and it’ll hurt. It’ll hurt because they are younger than me and they have done soo much that I have not, found soo much that maybe I never will. I’d be older than them but I’d know that whatever happens, I’ll never have the fun they had.

books i love and why you should read them
1. instructions for dancing by nicola yoon
absolutely perfect meet-cute
made me question my existence multiple times in the best way possible
comfort book tbh
basically changed the entire way that i look like love and life
such realistic, raw emotion??? how?
the main character has a really dry sense of humour and i love it
really fast read!! i finished in two days
2. orlando by virginia woolf
it makes me feel really cool while reading because it has dark academia feminist vibes
also victoria woolf is a queen
it's based on a real life queer love story
some of the lines just made me sit back and go. oh damn,
it's surprisingly easy to read
(also full disclosure i have Not finished this yet but i love it so far)
3. six of crows duology by leigh bardugo
be gay, do crime
six teenagers who don't know what the fuck they're doing and manage to break into one of the most secure prisons on the planet and also basically take down a government
inej ghafa.
lots of rep!!
you get the awesome magic from shadow and bone without suffering through alina starkov's internal monologue
"my ghost won't associate with your ghost"
there's a massive fandom of chaotic gays so u will find a home among us <3
the character development is literally flawless
4. scythe trilogy by neal shusterman
i'm a simp for citra okay i admit it
but also the worldbuilding of this book is just. perfection
and it has limited characters but each one is so three-dimensional and you really go into depth about how each one of them thinks and feels and aaaa so good
the power dynamics that are created between characters are amazing
5. an ember in the ashes quartet by sabaa tahir
helene aquila. that's it.
ok no that's not it
but helene aquila and elias veturius are literally perfection; this book was written for the bisexuals /j
all three main characters are absolutely incredible
the number of plot twists??? im? how *sobs*
oh yeah this book will make you sob a lot
but it is worth it
the worldbuilding is so solid and i love the way that she uses magic in both the worldbuilding and the character development
also omg the character relationships? laia and elias and elias and helene and helene and laia and the way that they all develop i can't
brown rep <3
6. red white and royal blue by casey mcquinston
it's set in an alternate 2020 which was way better than ours so it's great if you're into escapism and like to avoid your problems by dissociating into fictional lands
alex claremont-diaz owns my entire heart
gay
gay fluff
childhood rivals to enemies to reluctant allies in a time of crisis to growing trust to friends with mutual pining to friends with benefits with mutual pining to lovers
it's a hell of a rollercoaster
also lots of politics! if you're into that kind of thing
7. a court of thorns and roses by sarah j mass
don't read it <3

The author J.M. Buckler decided that it would be appropriate to post this reel about how diversity is “ruining” the YA genre and making a mockery out of minority groups’ legitimate gripes with the genre and industry as a whole. A number of authors in the comment section have been agreeing with Buckler. I will be reblogging later with all of the authors who support this bullshit.

Speaking of Pendragon, you know what other young adult books I've never seen anyone on here talking about? Charlie Bone!
And where's my Spiderwick Chronicles fandom?
I'm aghast that nobody gushes about Cornelia Funke's books.
Or brings up the bizarre Wrinkle in Time sequels...
And I know it's a slightly different genre but nine years on this site and not one single mention of Twitches? Did Karsh mean nothing to you? We roast The Last Airbender but not a single post about how Disney Channel once butchered my middle school escapism?
Everyone on here makes it their mission to talk about certain children's shows/movies with the seriousness of a group of investors at a yacht club, but we've missed out on so many others...
And that's odd.

The real reason we like the found family trope is because we know that these are not the people who we were chosen to be with, these are the people who will choose us over and over again.

Hypothesis: the main characteristic that makes YA literature YA is the very high level of reader identification it promotes with its protagonists. This explains many, maybe most of the common qualities of YA books, and also many of the limitations of YA

one of my favorite things to do as a reader is go into goodreads after finishing a book and read five star and one star reviews and just have a good time over other people’s thoughts

qotd: “‘It’s you I love,’ he says. ‘I spent much of my life guarding my heart. I guarded it so well that I could behave as though I didn’t have one at all. Even now, it is a shabby, worm-eaten, and scabrous thing. But it is yours.’” — @hollyblack​

How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories:

After months of watching others obsess over The Folk of the Air, I can finally say that I have completely finished the series! Though the romance didn’t live up to the hype at times, I loved my time spent in Elfhame! The world is completely unique, populated by fantastical creatures and complex, morally grey characters. Rovina Cai does a wonderful job capturing these characters on the page in “How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories.”
I definitely recommend this series to fantasy lovers ✨🧚‍♀️ and hope to revisit the world soon in Black’s future books!

[ID: A photo of a book lying flat on a wooden cutting board. The book is All of Us Villains by Amanda Foody and Christine Lynn Herman. The cover features a person edited to have red skin. Only half of their face is visible and their hands are together in a contemplative pose. The book is surrounded by coffee beans and a bowl full of grapes.]
