What's your favourite way of procrastinating?
πŸ“š
today i procrastined by watching got videos with daenerys and her dragons on youtube, especially the latest seasons when the dragons are grown up, because i've been obsessed with reign (!!!), the winds of winter, blood of my blood and dance of dragons lately. there's a mix of these songs on yt, it's the first thing that comes up if you search got dragon theme.
πŸ“š
as usual, literally no connection whatsoever between my pic and what i'm saying. but hey, nice pic right? i hope? yes? no? maybe?
πŸ“š
oh wait wait. i can talk about spring. spring has come yey. i've seen people say on ig that yesterday or the day before it was the first day of spring and i was like "really?". flowers!

Do you like retellings?
πŸ“š
tbh i don't quite enjoy them. i mean... why :)) yeah, i might read a book that's a retelling and i might like it (acotar), but it's not something that makes me wanna buy the book. on one hand, i understand there's a formula for a good story, that worked from the beginning of storytelling, and that's the reason why a retelling would also work, but at the same time... idk, they're just not my cup of tea. but if the story and writing are good, sure.
πŸ“š
have you read any good retellings?

What's your personal message to girls all around the world who are trying to figure it out?
πŸ“š
well, i haven't figured all of it out. but i figured some things.
i figured that all the change in my life must come from a place of self-love. i figured that happiness doesn't depend on my weight. that shedding a few kilos won't get me the guy. that my body brought me where i am and i should love and cherish it because my body is there for me and it will do its best to turn around my bad choices, to heal me, to keep me healthy. but i have to do the work. if i want something, i have to do the work. that the circumstances of my life don't define me, that i can rise above them and use them as stepping stones. that rock bottom is a strong foundation. that life heals and forgives.
πŸ“š
and that no one really cares. or, whatever, few do. but no one really cares how expensive your clothes are. no one really looks at you just as you don't really look at no one. we are stuck in our own little worlds, with our own little problems. so your mistakes aren't that big of a deal. out of all the mistakes i made, i can think of very few that really mattered.
πŸ“š
that after a certain age, you can't blame anyone else but you.
πŸ“š
that people hate. and that is on them, not on you. because a truly happy person, content with themselves, doesn't have place for it in their lives, in their hearts.
πŸ“š
happy (belated) women's day!

What's your favourite book/series? top of the top. numero 1.
🌞
i'll continue the story from my last post.
🌞
something that i forgot to mention yesterday - when i was in middle grade i had this classmate who was reading in the recess. that also played a big role for me because i couldn't understand how she could do it. i wanted to prove myself that i could as well. and so i did :))
🌞
so as i said, i started reading everything that fell into my hands, to the point where i saw the first 2 wheel of time novels in a bookstore and i was like "uh. big books. me wants". i discovered a bookblog and started engaging there. that's the place where i met james. that was in 7th grade. in 10th grade something happened and there you have it, πŸŽ‰depressionπŸŽ‰ i wasn't finding the same pleasure in my books and i decided that they are useless and that i have to read "serious" books. but in fact i wasn't reading anything at all because i didn't like the books that i was "supposed" to read. when james and i met in the first year of college, he did everything in his power to make me start reading again. i started percy jackson because of him, at the end of 2013. it wasn't much, but looking back i realise that it was then when i started to come back. so basically percy jackson was the 2nd start for me. and then, in the 2nd year of college i started reading again, not even by far how i'm reading now, but hey, it was something. i realised i had no idea what was being published anymore so i created this account. and the rest is history haha :))
🌞
so that was it.

How did you start reading?
🌟
i was thinking of doing a recap of my reading history.
1. when i was young, my father had me read aloud while he was working. i vividly remember syllabifying the words. i must have been in the 1st grade. it was ok but i didn't particularly loved it. i was just doing it bc i was asked to.
2. i read mostly science (for kids) books. i liked astronomy&physics & i wanted to go to space. i was reading fiction too to some extent, but it wasn't really a thing.
3. i had lotr+the hobbit & hp on the shelves, but i hated both of them for no reason. one day i started the hobbit bc i had nothing else to read and loved it. and then i read lotr in 5th grade & loved it too. i had a crush on sauron.
4. i thought "maybe i read lotr, but i'll never read s****d harry potter". until i did. i waited for the next books to come out & i remember getting my hands on the 4th one & being so excited. i borrowed the 6th one from a classmate.
7. i borrowed narnia from another classmate and i was shocked by how big they seemed. my classmate was like "uhm... they're not". one day i woke up at 5am to read narnia before school & my mom found me reading & i still remember how proud she looked.
8. i found in one of the witch comics a cartoon with an angel who fell in love with a demon. i felt inspired af & wanted to read angels and demons by dan brown bc i thought it was about this. i haven't, but i had already created a story in my mind about what i thought a&d was.
9. an ex-friend & i said we should write a book together or create a comic about the devil's ring and diary that are found on earth or smth. the ring was that serpent eating its tail. so when i randomly stumbled upon magyk by angie sage... you imagine my shock. and that was the real beginning. magyk by angie sage. it wasn't what i thought it would be and frankly i was kinda disappointed, but after that i started reading everything that fell into my hands. seeing that, my dad bought me 1m of books. bartimaeus&eragon were among them. i was reading non-stop, not doing my homework, not paying attention in class. i was really a bad student.
🌟
i'll continue in the next post bc i ran out of space :)) #bookstagram

What are you currently reading?
🀸‍♀️
i started the priory of the orange tree by @say_shannon . i barely read a few dozen pages and it doesn't look like i'll be able to read too much this week because i need to help mom with some things.
🀸‍♀️
in other news, in march i'll read the power by naomi alderman for @girlswhocanbookclub, a bookclub put together by @bookishbronte. we're all choosing a fantasy, but also feminist book, we're reading it and then talking about it. you can join too and read along with us, there are a lot of books you can choose from.
🀸‍♀️
and in other news, i'm a bit sad today :( because stuff. i need to constantly remind myself to focus focus focus and keep going keep going keep going.
🀸‍♀️

If you could have an unlitimed storage of one thing (not necesarilly a physical thing), what would it be?
πŸ₯”
all quiet on the western front. i'm not reading anything because i want to read 4 books at the same time and starting one would feel like cheating on the others. i'm talking about the whispers of the fallen, the priory of the orange tree, song of achilles and crooked kingdom. dude, life is hard.

You've been granted one wish by the d*******g genie. he takes advantage of people's poor wording when making wishes to s***w them over. what do you wish for?

and, of course, i'll be the doucebag genie.
