Buon pomeriggio, my lovelies. It’s a new year, so y’all should introduce yourselves (privately, if you’re shy). Because, ya know, it’s 2014, the air is rife with possibilities, and we could make magic together. Yeah? Yeah.
I know it’s on the tail end of the 25th, but I just wanted to share one of my favorite Christmas songs that never gets enough love each year. Can we take a moment to appreciate these lyrics? And the magic that is Michael Bublé’s voice.
Do you remember me? I sat upon your knee I wrote to you with childhood fantasies Well, I’m all grown-up now Can you still help somehow? I’m not a child, but my heart still can dream
So here’s my lifelong wish My grown-up Christmas list Not for myself, but for a world in need
No more lives torn apart That wars would never start And time would heal all hearts Every man would have a friend That right would always win And love would never end This is my grown-up Christmas list
So, two Belgian professors put Fifty Shades of Grey (library copy) through toxicology screenings, and found that it tested positive for the herpes virus. At first, I thought the article was a metaphor, and thought to myself, yes, yes, literary herpes indeed. But, actually, it’s literal herpes, too.
Vee! I just wanted to ask you, have you read Angelfall by Susan Ee? I read it yesterday and it's soo squee-worthy even though its YA and i know you don't read YA, but it doesn't even feel like YA tbh! Also, could you recommend some books you've read recently? Would love to know! :D
I haven’t. I just Googled it, and jesus, people are crazy about this book. I’ll definitely put it on my reading list though! I am always appreciative of book recommendations. <3
The last novel I finished that I think is worthy of pimping is And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini. He is, as you all probably know, one of my favorite authors. Reading his writing is always, always such a great and terrible pleasure. It’s like going to your favorite restaurant and just knowing that no matter what you order, it’s going to make you wonderfully and undeniably content. So even if you’re not into the plot/setting/genre, I think the quality of Hosseini’s storytelling is, in itself, worthy of experiencing. :)
