"Your blog is so so lovely ! I'm a passionate reader and writer since I was a child, I'm currently taking Literature and languages, even though lots of people told me not to because "you won't have a future". And I said fuck to them. I write in French, not English but I hope one day I'll be able to translate books, it's my dreams ! Thank you for reminding me that there still are some people who truly enjoy boobs <3"
… reading your message…
…reading the end…
Screw them! Follow your dreams! And if it didn’t work out, at least you tried right?
"OMG! Can I have all the books from your giveaway!!? Geez I would seriously give you the money! There are too many books to read!!!"
"I just wanted to say, i love your blog more then i love books, and thats saying something!"
But books are more awesome don’t you think?
"Do you ever read fanfics? I myself read HP fanfics specifically Drinny (Draco & Ginny) fanfics since I ship them and I was just so frustrated why they did not became canon."
I read fanfics a long time ago. Probably during the time when were still waiting for the HP series to be completed because anything was still possible right?
"Hey! Would you mind suggesting some great books to read? I hope you could suggest 20 books or more :) Thank you!! :*"
"On your current giveaway it appears you've read 20ish book this year so far and I'm just curious as to if you have a goal for books read this year?"
If you noticed, most of those books belong to a series and I’ve read all of those books too. I just included the first ones of the series to avoid repetition. So I’m actually around almost 60 or something. I set my goals around 80 and increase it as needed.
"gaayyle... have you got a hug for me, by any chance?"
Of course I do.
"The crappy thing is that medical books are sooo expensive it makes me feel guilty whenever I buy nonmedical books when I can't even afford to buy some of my textbooks. Oh there are a lot of subjects I don't like (pharmacology is a bitch) but rotating in the hospital is fun. I kinda wish I took up nursing as my premed course, you people are awesome :)"
I get you. Why are they so expensive and heavy?? The only thick books I want are novels. LOL
OH MY GOD. Pharmacology was hell. I have no idea what medication was classified under which most of the time. I only truly understood it now that I’m working. Chemistry was my worst one. I cannot wrap my head around it no matter how hard I try.
Yes! Hospital rotations are so scary at first but once you get the hang of it it’s fun! What year are you now? Some of my nursing friends are now residents and interns or soon to graduate that’s why I sometimes think what if I continued it. You know what I mean?
"I love your blog sorry that it's not a question but I just had to tell you!! ♡♡♡♡"
"Hi (: I love your blog! I figured other people must love it too and I was wondering if you could tell your followers about my blog write-for-the-stars? It's a blog based around helping writers become better. (Plus posting lots of things related to reading/writing/books/quotes/and such.) There's writing tips, word/challenge of the day, and when I get enough followers I'd really love to start doing writing challenges. But I don't have enough followers at the moment :/"
"About that last post, you tagged it wrong. That's Madeleine, not Matilda..."
oops. My bad. I wasn’t paying attention while I was queuing.
"Hey, that post with the three symbols with "legend, prodigy, champion" look like they're from a series. What is it?"
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:
- how old they were when it came out
- exactly where they were
- who they’re with
- lining up for hours before its release
- wearing costumes while in line
- dragging their parents to the bookstore for the midnight release because they were too young then
- dragging their families to bookstores while on vacation to buy the book
- travelling hours to the nearest bookstore / going through several bookstores to find a copy
- the number of hours it took for them to read it
- not sleeping until they finished it
- pretending to be sick so that they can stay at home and finish reading it
- the deaths they cried for
- parents surprising their kids with copies when they get home
- the emotions they had while reading the book
- kids who had to wait for a translated copy because English wasn’t their first language and couldn’t understand it back then
- and many more
(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.
books-and-cookies reblogged your post I’m not sure if there’s a fire or… and added:

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.
