1. Love me a good zombie movie/show/book. Honestly, in that one book, Zombies vs Unicorns, zombies won by a long shot.
2. I like the romance element of vampires, although I think they‘re both hella cliché at this point.
3. Both! Gimme all the horror movies!!
4. Halloween 2018 was heckin glorious, but my all time fav is Children of the Corn
5. I LOVE Twizzlers, but I hate the cherry flavor

Just a quick shoutout to my friend @Xoxounityoxox !! She runs an etsy shop (https://etsy.me/31jws4s) where she sells all her hand-crocheted items. I bought ravenclaw earmuffs to match my scarf, and she just put up this neat ravenclaw book sleeve! She‘s gonna be putting up some spooky stuff soon for everyone participating in the #screamathonswap or #basicwitchswap!

1. My new book is called Me and my friend and her husband.
2. Masquerade
3. So much. I‘ve loved creative writing since I was introduced to it in middle school and now it‘s one of my minors! For a project in high school, I wrote a novel. It‘s trash, but I‘m working on it, haha.
4. I write what I want to see in the genres I read. The kinda of characters, worlds...jut things I wish I could‘ve read about.

I remember these books scaring me so badly I wouldn‘t sleep in a room with a fireplace. Those were the ones that got me the most, with things coming down the chimney. I find, though, that I‘m not as susceptible to the scares as I once was. I still plan on seeing the movie though!

With the movie about to come out, some entertainment articles I read reawakened the nostalgia for the stories that scared the snot outta me as a kid! So naturally, I bought the box set. Oops!

I really liked this book, although I liked One of Us is Lying much better. The ending was kind of anticlimactic, but I liked the characters and their relationships. There was a little more diversity in this book, with one of the main characters being mixed, and two side characters being LGBT (but that‘s not their defining characteristic!). Anyway, if you‘re a fan of thrillers, especially the YA type, here‘s a book for you!

Last day of #colormepretty! It‘s #secondarycolors!

I really like the Handmaid‘s Tale TV show, but I haven‘t read the book yet. Same with The Darkest Minds. Wicked I‘ve tried to read, but I was at the beach and it didn‘t hold my attention. I LOVE the musical though. My Sister the Serial Killer is a book I‘ve seen a lot on here, and I can‘t wait to get my hands on it.

I would die for Opal. End of story.

Allegiant was super disappointing and one of the very few books I have ever dnfed. I‘m glad I did so when I did, because the ending would‘ve made me very angry.

Wow, okay. So. I really really liked this one! It had me second-guessing everyone at one point or another, and my list of suspects didn‘t include the actual killed until 3/4ths of the way through the book! The clues were all there, but I didn‘t connect them. What a read! I‘d recommend to anyone who likes true crime and YA (although there‘s quite a bit of swearing, so on the older end of the YA spectrum).

Glitches was a short story in the back of one of my books from the Lunar Chronicles. It was a prequel explaining how Cinder got to the family she had in the main story. It was really sad, but also explained some stuff.

Sweetkokoro This art is really pretty. Is it from this short story, like official art done along with it? 1mo
i-am-papercrane @Sweetkokoro I believe it was made for the story because it‘s what shows up on goodreads 1mo
Sweetkokoro Ahh okay, I might have to look into this Lunar Chronicles series. I see a few talk about it but I am hesitant. But this art makes it appealing. 1mo
i-am-papercrane @Sweetkokoro If you like YA sci-fi romance retellings of fairytales, then I would 100% recommend. The second book is my favorite, and the graphic novels are great too 1mo
Sweetkokoro I‘m not exactly a fan of YA which is why I am hesitant. I‘ll look into and see if it will be worth it. 1mo

I wish I had an object to make me forget about this book. I‘m glad I got it for free because really, it‘s not worth $15 for a physical copy. The book couldn‘t decide whether it wanted to be UF or sci-fi or what. I didn‘t like any of the characters because the women were caricatures and the men were all pigs. It was annoying to read and I wanted to quit about halfway through, but finished it because I‘m stubborn. Don‘t read this book.

Today‘s #colormepretty is #rainbow! I went for an LGBT+ theme for this one.

Grim Lovelies‘ main character might be straight, but there‘s a trans character and a gay character.

Passing I read for a class, but the point is brought up that it could be read as a lesbian awakening. After reading it, I would agree with that point.

Hero I read in high school and it‘s a great book about the struggles of coming out AND being a teenage superhero. 10/10

I am SO EXCITED for Call Down the Hawk! I loved the Raven Cycle and I can‘t wait to go back to Henrietta.

Sinner I‘ve had for a while but I haven‘t read it yet. Very close to the top of my tbr pile though...

I love both of Sarah J. Maas‘ series, but sometimes they seem a little too similar.

The 5th Wave series was good, and I‘ve never felt bad about skipping the movie.

ElzBubble I think I need to read the 5th wave! I have watched the film unfortunately but I think I would still love the books? 1mo
i-am-papercrane @ElzBubble Books always tend to be better than movies, and I personally enjoyed the books. The last one wasn‘t my favorite but it wasn‘t a bad ending. 1mo
ElzBubble @i-am-papercrane They really do! Every book I‘ve read with a film version, the book is always better! I‘ve clicked the buy button, it‘s official, I will add them to my to-be-read shelf on the bookcase when they arrive hah 1mo

I finished my reread! The book was how I‘d mostly remembered, and I still had the same problems. The reason I like this book is because of the story, not because of the characters. Diana annoys me and is super melodramatic sometimes. Matthew is super controlling and pisses me off. BUT I love Marcus and the aunts and the magic and the alchemy, history, philosophy.... I really like what AMC is doing with the show too! Would 100% recommend.

OOF I‘M LATER THAN USUAL! Today‘s #colormepretty is #monochromatic!

Hollow City was great. I loved the Miss Peregrine‘s trilogy, and was not disappointed with the end. I haven‘t read the new one, though.

Hush, Hush was one of the books at the height of the YA angel thing. I didn‘t like it and only read the first.

The Dark Deceit is the third book of a series I started reading on Wattpad and is something I consider a guilty pleasure.

I love this little app! 😊 Only a little over 100 pages left to my reread, and then onto One of Us is Lying, which I am hella looking forward too. Unfortunately, because this is camp, I can only focus on one book at a time, and I haven‘t had time recently to listen to Pride and Prejudice. Oh well, only three weeks left!

#bookly #camplifeisthebestlife

Sweetkokoro Has there been any changes to the free version of this app? I originally had it and loved it but there is just no way I could afford to pay for it, so I was stuck with only being able to catalog 10 books for free, which was a huge bummer. 1mo

These books come from my TBR. Glitter I saw a few times on here, read the synopsis, then added it. Textrovert is a book I read way long ago on Wattpad and then bought a copy when the author physically published it. My aunt told me that Laini Taylor was publishing another book from the DOSAB trilogy, but it took me a long while to buy it and I still haven‘t read it yet. Soon, though!

Iduna‘s Apples was the second book a friend of my mom‘s wrote, but the title changed to Elements of Magic in the renamed Rune Witch series. 10/10 would recommend.

Beastly would‘ve been a good book if I read it in middle school instead of as an adult.

Elephant Run was really good, and showed yet another facet of WWII I hadn‘t considered.

Of course, I will forever read and love anything by Mariasa Meyer.

Today‘s #colormepretty is #white!

The One I enjoyed, even if it threw in some elements that weren‘t exactly present at the start of the series. Becuase of that, it did feel rushed at some parts. Still, I liked it.

Glass Sword I bailed on after it became both too predictable and too just...dumb. The characters made me angry and the plot seemed to be following the deep rut of every fantasy YA to come before it.

Surprisingly, I don‘t have a lot of books those colors, so here are the two I found!

I Am Malala we had to read for school, but it was really good! I think I would‘ve ended up reading it anyway eventually, because my Girl Scout troop watched the movie. Would recommend to literally anyone.

Kissing the Witch is a book of retold fairy tales that are all fantastic. Another book everyone should read!

I didn‘t read Harry Potter until 5th grade because I was Too Cool™️ for that. Now I have all the books in Ravenclaw jackets, robes, wands, etc.

I‘m disappointed with what the Percy Jackson movies tried to do. If you have a script already written, don‘t stray too far, or you‘ll tick off the fans.

Again, I actually liked the Mockingjay movies more than I liked the book. Catching Fire wasn‘t bad, though.

Today‘s #colormepretty is #tertiarycolors!

Havoc was a middle school read a long time ago that I remember liking. Crimes Against Magic I also enjoyed, setting aside my problems with Urban Fantasy.

Beta? I hated it. It was awful, and apparently gets worse. There are terribly triggering scenes that come out of nowhere for no good reason, and then I hear it gets EXTREMELY pro-life with everyone telling the main character she can‘t have an abortion.

i-am-papercrane Apparently because her child is the foretold Chosen One™️, but none of it sat right with me. Avoid at all costs. The tagged book just wasn‘t good, and I‘m glad I got it for free rather than paying for it. 1mo
