I’ve only read 12 books this month (ish) and I am internally CRYING because WHY. I’m stuck on Life Lik3 (it’s amazing I just can’t finish) and I’m almost done with Clockwork Prince. I AM REGRETTING ALL LIFE DECISIONS. I got sick about halfway through September which caused my reading slump, I think. BUT IT’S FRUSTRATING ahhhh. I’ve been RIPPED from my power and down to the commoner’s perspective. (kidding I’m not that good)
ALSO you may notice I have a new blog theme! (Don’t worry, it’s temporary) I just LOVE Halloween a LOT so I decided to spice up my blog for the month! I wish the heading could have a different color (so it’s easier to see) but since it’s temporary, I’m just leaving it (ahaha I’m so lazy)
BEST BOOKS READ:
I honestly don’t remember much except that the love interest was SO mature for a YA novel love interest and I LOVE IT. I need more. PLEASE, YA, MAKE ACTUALLY MATURE TEENS PLEASE! WE EXIST!
I read it for school and I LOVE IT. I love it. AHHhhhhHhh. It’s letters from a demon, Screwtape, to his nephew, Wormwood, who is tempting a human to get away from the ‘Enemy’ (Jesus) to ‘Our Father.’ (Satan) It’s all from a demon’s perspective and I love it. I love CS Lewis anyway, but even compared to the other works of his I’ve read, this is a masterpiece. (I’m not saying his other works are bad: I just really think this book is amazing)
WORST BOOKS READ:
I didn’t really read any truly awful books so I guess I’m happy
Romanian Wind from Sherlock Holmes (RDJ’s version)::: it’s amazing.
you should see me in a crown: Billie Eilish::: this is the ONLY song of hers I’ve listened to and WANT to listen to and I LOVE it actually.
Pure Imagination::: ahhhh Willy Wonka was one of my FAVORITE books as a child and this song makes me sad IDK why but I love it.
The Cat’s Fugue by Domenico Scarletti::: I love harpsichord music and this is one of the best I’ve heard I think
Your Angel Put The Devil In Me from Doctor Who season 3 (David Tennant/Freema Agyeman season)
BLOG POSTS I LOVED
And this one’s SUPER last minute but it is literally the best post I’ve read this month.
Not much has happened except me writing fanfiction on my own novel aka not getting any actual writing done. Here’s an example (I’m not going to bother with the screenshots because it’s a royal pain to get screenshots on this computer) But I seriously just used an idea from Sherlock and none of this makes sense. (since when has Verity gotten married? Since when do you send in college applications in fantasy lands? Since when does she have a cat named after a perverted king? I don’t know, man.)
me @ me procrastinating
Verity tucks a blanket around her, careful not to disrupt the snoozing tan cat. “So, Ash, have you sent in the college applications yet?”
“Yes- I haven’t heard anything yet, but I should soon.”
“I’m excited for you!” Verity grins. “My little bro’s growing up. But are you gonna keep that disgusting mustache?”
Self conscious, Ash raises a hand to his lip. “I’ll keep it for your sake. I’ve just been forgetting to shave.”
“Ahuh.” Verity raises an eyebrow. “I reckon it makes you feel manly, doesn’t it?”
The door cracks open and Willian slouches through the door and throws his battered bag on the granite counter. “Hey Ver. Hey Ash.” He yawns and steps into the living room. His face is slack and lined, exhaustion reflected on his features. He bends over and plants a lingering kiss on his wife’s lips. “I’ll join you in a minute.”
Verity gestures at Willian, who leaves the room. “Now that’s a man. And he doesn’t have a mustache.”
“I told you, I’ve just been forgetting to shave.”
She air-quotes. “Forgetting.”
“I have, Ver.”
“No one likes it.”
“C’mon.” Ash rolls his eyes. “I’ll be clean-shaven next time you see me.”
“I hate it. Rush hates it. Henry VIII here hates it,” Verity pats the cat’s ears, who mews in protest and shrinks away. “Elsie would hate it if she could see. And, I can guarantee you Scarlet hates it, too.” Verity straightens up and calls, “Will! What do you think of Ash’s mustache?”
“It’s better than yours,” he calls back.
“Oh yeah, thanks, that really helped.” She turns back to Ash. “Shave it.”
I finished my Goodreads goal!
reached 50 followers!!!!!!!!!!!!! (ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh tysmmmmmm)
Also since I have a question mark in my name all of the notifications like this seem shocked. yOuVe recEiVEd 50 FollOWs on SmEllFoy cAn reAD?
I didn’t finish a draft of Zenith BUT I was close. (60 pages ahaha) Also I’m rewriting FTIDKTT and named it ‘Otherworldly’
posted twice a week!
I didn’t even TOUCH Obsidio (ahahah that’s never happening)
BOOKS I BOUGHT:
Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor.
but I really want the new Loki novel ahhh I might buy it, idk.
I watched Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and ahhh they were so adorable. I also watched The Chamber of Secrets and I wish there was more Percy. ASLO. When Harry frees Dobby, Lucius begins to cast the AVADA KEDAVRA CURSE ON HARRY. IN THE SCHOOL. RIGHT OUTSIDE DUMBLEDORE’S DOOR. if Dobby hadn’t stopped Lucius he would’ve KILLED HARRY. WTH LUCIUS.
I ALSO WATCHED THE LIVE ACTION ALADDIN AND THE AESTHETICS WERE AMAZING. I really didn’t like the actor for Jafar because he wasn’t as terrifying as the animated one. But considering it was a live-action it wasn’t too bad. (even the genie was okay: he’s just doin his best.)
Spiderman 1: Tobby Macgooer is hilarious I love this spider-man so much.
I haven’t watched any Doctor Who recently (sad). Well, actually I did rewatch a couple episodes. But I did watch some Sherlock! I also heard Supernatural is finally ending??? (sad)
