Aaaand it’s 3am

Here are my random additions to this list:

20) When you discover that three YA books you’ve read back-to-back utilize the word “chortle” and all you can do is happy dance endlessly for an entire day. 

21) You take your I-Pad to the bathroom so you can finally get to the part when X and Y kiss. 

22) You don’t say young adult literature. You just say “YA.” And you say it with gusto and a tad bit louder than you should. 

~ Lourdes

  • 3: A sudden desire to find someone like the love interest in the book.
  • 4: Slight drooling over certain moments.

  • 6: A need to share with the world just how fantastic the book is.

MARGARET THATCHER TRIED TO THROW THE MINISTER OF MAGIC OUT THE WINDOW.

SHE WASN’T CALLED THE IRON LADY FOR NOTHING.

I’m sure at least for 20 years we will continue to find minor details like this about Harry Potter series

Guys, you just made my day… I’m going to laugh for a whole week thanks

that awesome moment when you finished reading a really good book and you see it at a store then you cunningly smile at it as if you had an affair with it.

#then you hover around it for a while #maybe stroke it #read the blurb

The horrifying thing is that this is true.

I need Markus Zusak to write more books. Now. Please.

He’s been writing Bridge of Clay for years now. :( One day we’ll have a new book of his in our hands and it will be beautiful. One day.
