Veronica by Mary Gaitskill; loved every inch of this novel. The prose is heart breakingly beautiful, the 80s feel perfectly evoked. AIDS and all!

39 and 49?

39. What book as made you cry?

It’s very rare for me cry because of a book so I will share the only 2 times it has happened!

This Present Darkness had a scene that scared me so bad I was in tears. Despite the books Christian message, I still actually like it and have read the sequel.

The other time a book made me cry was the very end of the last Harry Potter book. Harry Potter was a massive part of my childhood, the first non-picture book I ever read, and what jump-started my love or reading. I know HP has gotten a lot of (well deserved) criticism, but it will always hold a special place in my heart.

49. Worse book you’ve ever read.

Oh this is easy! Of Mice and Men is honestly horrible. I actually hate almost everything written by John Steinbeck (The Pearl was ok) but Of Mice and Men is the most boring piece of crap I’ve ever had the misfortune of reading.

anonymous asked:

4 and 28 for the book ask?

4. Is there a book that you think needs a bigger fandom?

One of my most favorite books is The Last Dragonlord series and I’ve never known anyone else who has even heard of it. It’s been a while since I’ve read it, so I’m sure there are some ‘problematic’ things about that I’m forgetting, but it’s pretty well written and if you like fantasy and badass people who turn into dragons then I highly recommend!

28. First book that comes to mind, tell us about it. Rant.

Ok! So, this is going to be more of a 'gush’ than a 'rant’. I currently have the first book of the Septimus Heap series sitting on my desk because I’ve been trying to get my s/o to read it for over a year. If you enjoyed Artemis Fowl and A Series of Unfortunate Events you will love Septimus Heap. The series follows Septimus and his foster-sister Jenna as they learn about magic, family, and responsibility. Crazy hijinks, quirky adults, and ineffective guardians abound. Please go read this book I beg you.

Day 31/80

I reorganised my bookshelves today and it was so cathartic and a little nostalgic. I’m so much happier with them now. I still have a couple more to do but this was a good start, I had to let go of a few books, but hopefully they will find new homes. Now I finally have space to fill it’s the perfect excuse for another book haul…

Hello! I'm Gizzy (a nick I made of my real name) I'm 17, with she/her pronouns. My interests include: reading, writing some stuff, drawing (I have a blog where I post some stuff) and watching series or enjoy a good coffee mug or watching youtube videos or something, always open to experiment new stuff. I am something like a little stressball, I tend to rumble mostly of the time and I, eh, from Latin America, so English isn't my first language, but, I can speak, read and write it fluently πŸ€—
