Legend trilogy by Marie Lu.
My favorite thing in a post is when people add their personal stories on the tags/comment.
Right now around 95% are people freaking out that it’s been seven years already / feeling old / was extremely young, plus the random comments about those kids in the last picture getting several copies - WHY?
But there are some incredibly nostalgic stories sprinkled in between and I loved reading those. I spent some time reading the tags and finding out that people vividly remember details like:
(If you have time and xkit, read the tags. They’re absolutely wonderful)
Yes, Harry Potter is not the best story out there. It has it’s own flaws. But the influence it had cannot be denied. I don’t know if there will be another book that will have this much impact on a generation. I sure hope so because this was a great thing to experience. I feel lucky to have grown up with the series and experience this first hand.
Pyramid head will be with you soon.
I certainly hope not.
Also, it seems like the whole Sunday / early Monday was crazy because so many notes from the Epic Reads post, then that HP post just went insane (I totally did not expect that), and the Beauty and the Beast ask too. I am bewildered.
Now I’m just 16 followers away from 20k and no thanks to my giveaway it seems. LOL. That’s a first.
FYI, did you know I have a GIVEAWAY??? Hahaha
The rest of my queued post until midnight (just 7 posts) will be Harry Potter related. Why? Because I can! That’s why.
Anyway, have a good rest of the day to all of you. I am in desperate need of sleep.
Got it? Good.
I’m feeling a little down and stressed out right now, so I wanted to send a shout out to a couple bloggers who I love talking to and just seeing their icon on my dash brings smiles to my face and I know that this list isn’t long enough, but I absolutely love this child and this child. I’ve been talking to them a lot (ish) over the last week and they just made me feel happy and yea… goodbye now.
Awww, ily too Sammi! And sorry to hear you’re not feeling too great - I hope you feel better soon ^^
Aww Sammi, you know where to find me. Just send me a message on any blog and I’ll be there. I hope you’re okay :)
PS: I’M A CHILD!!! Hurray!
Ooh, this is going to be harder than Unwind since I’ve read this at least 10 years ago. Hmmmm let’s see what I can remember… Someone correct me because I know I would get parts wrong.
It’s about a girl named Lyra who lives Oxford, England. The series has several parallel dimensions, and some can travel between worlds but you can’t stay long in the world other than your own for long because it shortens your life span). In Lyra’s original world (which is exactly like ours), everyone has daemons, or animal manifestations of their soul or conscience (they can talk) which can change appearance until the child comes of age and then they settle into a permanent animal form.
The series has strong religious themes. There’s the Magisterium which is like the powerful Church and controls everyone. The concept of dust, which is represents sin or something. The series revolves on finding out how dust affects everyone, the daemons and why they settle into their permanent form, and the parallel worlds.
It’s hard to give a gist of the plot because it gets very complicated and confusing if you’re not familiar with the foundation of the story so I’ll leave it at that.
For me, this particular series is one of those you loved it or you hate it books. It just depends on the reader.

That was my plan when I was in high school. I’ve always been interested in the inner workings of the mind, the psychopathology, etc. But my mom didn’t want it to be my first choice when applying because she wanted me to take nursing instead. And since I got accepted to all schools I applied for, one of which has a great nursing program, I took that instead . She said I could take it after I finish. I never did. I don’t know. :(
