...la mia curiosità era golosa; credevo di possedere appena conoscevo e di conoscere appena sfiorando 🌺 Simone de Beauvoir, Memorie di una ragazza per bene .
.
My curiosity was greedy; I thought I possessed just knowing and to know just touching
. 
Simone non amava cucinare (neanche a me, da qui la mia passione per i ristoranti) e poiché sia lei che Sartre erano ghiotti di foie gras, mi piace dedicarle questo piatto a base di quaglia e fegato grasso (chef Davide Odore).

〚 MAY 23 2018 〛
Q: What is your favorite fantasy or mythological creature?
⇓⇓⇓
I have fallen in love with djinn, and it is all thanks to S. A. Chakraborty and her amazing Daevabad trilogy. Unhappy with Game of Thrones? May I present to you this amazingly rich and complex fantasy bursting at the seams with history and magic...
Healer and con woman Nahri is thrust headfirst into a land of djinn, ghouls, and sea monsters when she accidentally summons an ancient warrior, Dara, thought to have been dead for thousands of years. Quickly learning that she is not as human as she once thought, Nahri finds herself navigating the slippery politics of Daevabad, the magical, capital city of brass floating in a mystic lake. Surrounded by friends and enemies alike, Nahri meets a rich cast of characters spread across five different djinn tribes: from religious leaders of her own tribe (Jamshid, I adore you 🖤) to the royal princes whose ancestors overthrew Nahri's own, as well as the downtrodden "half bloods" who are fighting for equality.
I can't express how much I enjoy these books. Not only do they 1) fall into my favorite category of fantasy that diverges from traditional European mythos and 2) feature one of my favorite magic creatures, the djinn, but the plot is just the perfect tangle of twists and turns. These books are politically complicated. There are many different conflicts dealing with race, social standing, and, most importantly, the way history can be twisted to serve different needs. I really can't recommend a fantasy series more, especially if you're looking for something new and fresh. I'm eagerly awaiting the final installment of the trilogy to see what suprises are still in store.

This magical thing happened yesterday, where Rachael @readingbringsjoy and I were able to spend the afternoon together with our babies and confirm that yes, friendships made through #bookstagram are even better in real life. I felt like I was having coffee with an old friend and my heart broke a little when we drove our separate ways when it was time to go (living on opposite sides of the country will do that I suppose). The internet is a funny place but gosh, I’m glad for it when it finds me kindred spirits in someone as kind and wonderful as Rachael! Until next time, friend!🍃🌻
Thank you @crownpublishing @randomhouse for the free book! #currentread

I see Aurora Rising everywhere on bookstagram lately, and I’m so eager to read it ! 🤩
.
Buuuuuuuut, as I didn’t read much this month, and bought a lot of books, I feel like I need to wait a little before giving into temptation. It will be hard, but I want to be more carefull about how I buy my books (aka stop buying books I don’t read and saving money in the process 📚💸)

Seconda settimana di #threedaysaweek 
Per #libriacolazione vi propongo #negliocchiditimea di @lucapoldelmengo un noir duro, attuale, che non fa sconti. "Le debolezze sono quanto di più autentico contraddistingua una persona, su quelle si può sempre fare conto."

I know this is strange, but I’m in a weird mood where I need alllll the gummy bears. But...then I need all the cheese. I don’t think I could narrow it down to one thing! How about you? Something you simply couldn’t live without?

“Some destinies are written in stone. Hers is written in the stars” ✨
———————————————————————
I got this babe from the library and it’s about a Anastasia type princess but in space. So far it’s pretty good. It reminds me of a cross between Cinder and Mirage, so if you guys like space fantasy check it out!

At the end of each draft, I like to drift through my ‘story folder’ and check all the scraps and scribbles and newspaper clippings and random books of poetry and ideas scrawled on the back of hospital appointment letters and all the other detritus that accumulates to form a novel.

I have been a fan of Bravest Warriors since the start!! It's such a fun and unique show. It's Adventure Time -esque in style, with it's own sense of humor and amazing personalities. My favorite character is, of course, Catbug!! 🐞
What is your favorite cartoon? Do you still watch cartoons or have you grown out of it?

And the secret garden bloomed and bloomed and every morning revealed new miracles.
Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

It’s #chelseaflowershow week, and I’m once again wishing I’d planned a visit, much as I do every year. It’s weeks like these where I am thankful to live in the age of social media, enabling me to enjoy the show, all be it vicariously.

My own garden is blooming, though sadly with weeds, and wild looking flowers, which I suspect are yet more weeds. Though I read that we should be encouraging wild flowers, and cultivating meadows rather than trim lawns, so perhaps I can say I’m doing my bit for the bees and the wildlife, rather than admit I’m feeling too lazy to tackle it properly. 
Anyway, back to looking through lovely gardens, and daydreaming of my perfect secret garden 🌿 .

lottate con più energia.

“Never give up on your dreams, and never let anyone tell you that what you love is inconsequential or useless or a waste of time. Because if you love it? If that OTP or children's card game or abridged series or YA book or animated series makes you happy? That is never a waste of time.”
— “Geekerella” by Ashley Poston 
Geekerella was such an adorable read. It felt like a love letter to fandom. Elle’s love for Starfield is exactly how I feel about my favorite books and movies. Stories can make tangible change in people’s lives and I know the stories I love have definitely changed mine. 🌈

What books have really affected who you are as a person? What fandom are you the most active in? 📖

I’m at my very first cricket match ever (my son’s), and I’ve just learned that the equivalent to a home run is called ‘hitting a six.’ 🏏
I’m very glad I brought my kindle because it looks like this game will last a long time. 😃 @gillymacmillan #TheNanny

“The Darkling slumped back in his chair. “Fine,” he said with a weary shrug. “Make me your villain.””
— “Shadow and Bone” by Leigh Bardugo 
Let’s talk about villains! The Darkling is a great one - mysterious and compelling so as to always keep the reader waiting for another glimpse of him. There are villains, like the Darkling, that you love to hate and try not to think about how much you would love to see them redeem themselves, even if they don’t deserve it. ❤️ Which villains do you love, and which ones are just cartoonish? What makes you find a villain compelling? 💜

Hey book friends I got some cool news for you! I’m hosting my very first giveaway. I got two awesome ARCs by accident so I’m giving one away! 
I’ve never done this on IG before so be gentle!! ——————————————————————
synopsis: 
One moment, Emmie is writing her high school history paper; the next, she's sitting with a gorgeous 16th century king who vacillates from kissing her to ordering her execution.

Able to travel back to her own time, but intensely drawn to King Nick and the mysterious death of his sister, Emmie finds herself solving the murder of a young princess and unraveling court secrets while trying to keep her head on her shoulders, literally.

With everything to lose, Emmie finds herself facing her biggest battle of all: How to cheat the path of history and keep her irresistible king, or lose him--and her heart--forever.

Ohhh Tuesdays, in #bookstagram world it’s one of the best days! Many thanks to the publishers for sending these copies out to me- I love sharing them here with you! I cannot WAIT to start Star Crossed after reading so many great reviews! I read The Summer I Met Jack last summer at the beach and it was such a great (non WWII) historical fiction/love story. I really enjoyed it! See any titles you’re looking forward to?

❤🔪❤ HAVE YOU READ ONE OF MY TOP READS? ❤🔪❤ "Percivale. Good God, even his name sends shivers down my spine. There is something about him that just captivates you immediately. He's sexy, tall, powerful, strong, tough and hot AF......Oh and then there's just one tiny thing, he's a hitman for hire" --- Me .

🔥 A CRUEL LOVE 🔥
Percivale and Blossom’s story is LIVE and it’s free in KU! ⇣ ⇣ ⇣ ⇣ ⇣

As a hitman for hire, Percivale is no stranger to violence. 
From the moment he saw Blossom Jaymes through the window of her bakery, he knew he was in too deep. Not only was she as sweet as her perfectly crafted treats, but she was a soft-spoken, golden-haired angel that shone like a bright beacon in his dark world. And Percivale didn’t deal in angels. He dealt in death and crime. The even bigger issue? Percivale’s next hit is on said sweet little baker who doesn’t seem to realize how much danger lurks around her with each passing day. 
If he doesn’t get the job done, who will? 
When Percivale has to decide what’s more important to him—the life of a woman who may very well be innocent or getting his revenge on the men who murdered his family—the lines become blurred. Morals are twisted and a deathly chase ensues that can only result in one thing—Blossom buried six feet under. 
Or can it? 
Can Percivale let his lust for revenge go in order to save Blossom from the bounty on her head, or will the power she unknowingly holds over him be what gets her killed?

“Writing is thinking” is one of the most useful quotes I’ve heard... now I’m thinking about how I can work Laura’s Tower at Shrewsbury Castle into a story.

“”Perfect is overrated. Perfect is boring.”
I smile. “You don't think I'm perfect?”
“No. You're delightfully screwy, and I wouldn't have you any other way.””
— “Lola and the Boy Next Door”

I’ve been thinking of some of my favorite romance tropes lately while I’m working on my WIP. Enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, partners in crime (or in solving crime in the case of Chloe and Lucifer)... There are so many ways to explore chemistry between people. I still haven’t quite put my finger on exactly what draws me to certain couples and makes others boring, but I feel like I’m getting close. 🌻

What are some of your favorite ships? What’s your favorite romance trope? 💗

HER SINFUL MARINE IS HERE! ❤️ He won’t rest until she’s safe…and he’s claimed her as his.

Melissa Ford is done with men. Especially the tall, handsome, and military kind. After being burned by her ex, the last thing she needs is a new man in her life.

Especially her cocky, arrogant, and smoking hot new client.

With broad shoulders, muscles to die for, and an ego a mile wide, he spells nothing but trouble. The sexy and sinful kind.

Marine Corps Captain Tyler Braxton needs a new place to live. And the sexy little redhead that’s showing him properties around town.

Melissa has porcelain skin and curves that won’t quit—not to mention a sassy mouth that has a comeback for every single one of his lines.

When Melissa goes missing one weekend, Tyler will stop at nothing to make sure she’s found safe and unharmed.
But it will take a hell of a lot more to convince her to be in his bed—and his life.

Her Sinful Marine, a standalone novel, is book two in the Sinful Marines series.

I know, I know, I’m changing up my theme AGAIN. I actually really like the theme I was working with, but tbh it’s hot as balls in South Florida right now - so it’s basically summer - and I am in a very summery mood at the moment. I’ll return to my old theme once fall arrives, but for now: bright colors and sunshine.
.
I’m STILL reading London: A Travel Guide Through Time, but I’m reading it every day and it feels really wonderful to be so absorbed in a book again. And to be reading it poolside doesn’t hurt.
.
How’s everyone else this Tuesday?

👋🏻 Hi Sam (@wickandwhimsy)! My name is Emma, and I am a 21 year old university student from Minneapolis, MN. I am an avid reader, an aspiring writer and photographer, and a lover of nature and hiking, as well as an amateur candle collector. I love stories that are fantastical, historical, and mythological. (Some of my favorites include The Hobbit, The Book Thief, Circe, The Scorpio Races, A Song of Ice and Fire, and The Golem and the Jinni, to name a few...) I have been a long time fan and follower of your company and am so in love with your products. (Especially your Harry Potter inspired candles! Forbidden Forest is my favorite! 🖤 But now that I'm all caught up on GoT, I think I need to expand my collection! 😉) You design both beautiful scent combos and lovely, simple packaging that really catches the eye. It would be such a privilege to help support your company and introduce other readers and candle collectors to your products. I'm a smaller account, but am passionate about the photos I take and the books I read, and I love engaging with other members of this amazing bookish community. Thank you for the opportunity to represent Wick and Whimsy, because you are a company I adore and would be so excited to help grown and flourish! Congrats on having your first rep search, I wish you all the best luck in finding the perfect accounts to represent you!

Lots of love, Emma

Anne Tyler: 'I have lived a life so nearly eventless that even my own biographer would nod off in the middle of it.' I don't believe a word of this and would love to read Anne Tyler's autobiography! I'd also like to know how she manages to make her 'uneventful' books so hard to put down!

Picked this up at @powellsbooks for my trip to Florence (I’m here now!) because the story begins there. This book was much more melancholy than I anticipated, but still weaves a compelling narrative about our two leads’ lives across 16 years. It’s a dreamy reminder (or perhaps just more of a daydream) of how our lives can lead us back to where we belong, after heartbreaks and struggles in between. Read when you’re in the mood for believing in destiny. 
Rating: 4/5✨

QOTD: What are you most looking forward to this summer?
🌿
I long for summer days, sitting at this table in the mornings to write before going about my errands. It’s so close, I can taste it. Until then, I have to get bits and pieces of this creative energy when I can!
🌿
I have some time to write this morning, so I’m going to find a prompt and just start scribbling.
🌿
I started reading Opposite of Always by Justin A. Reynolds yesterday and am already half way through! I can see why the @goscribbler box chose this as the book for their Voice themed box. It’s funny and entertaining, but has a lot of heart. I’m intrigued by the story and will probably finish this read today.

Hello everyone ! I’m sorry for the absence, I wasn’t feeling like posting (or reading) these past couple of weeks, I have been very busy…
I want to move out from my parent’s home, so I’m looking for an apartment and I’m really stressing out about that. I also have tons of work and a memoir to write for my studies. So yeah, I’ve been super busy and tired 😴
.
I feel like I can go back to posting and sharing with you guys, but I think I will post a little less than I used to 😉

“Life is made of so many moments that mean nothing. Then one day, a single moment comes along to define every second that comes after. Such moments are tests of courage, of strength.”
— “An Ember in the Ashes” by Sabaa Tahir

I just finished the final season of Game of Thrones and, to be honest, I liked it. It’s definitely not the best season, but I also don’t think it’s the worst. There were a couple in there somewhere that were pretty boring and repetitive, and this one had a lot of impressive scenes even if I do still have several criticisms and complaints. My favorite character was Sansa, followed by Arya, and I found their character arcs very satisfying. It’s a tv show that I will definitely miss. 🔥

Did you watch the final season of GoT? What did you think? 💛

I’m finding this t’be DELIGHTFUL. The perfect book to read slowly, maybe even alongside 4 or 5 others. 🤷🏼‍♀️😄
.
Here’s what I want to know - do you ever assign the looks or mannerisms of someone you know or an actor to a book character?
When this happens to me, I’m not necessarily looking for it - it just happens. Tina, here, is Emma Thompson for me. Popped into my head, unbidden- & it works! 
Now, for those of you who’ve read this, who would Anders be?

Lord help me for deciding to read this.
.
The Canterbury Tales were required reading in my high school but - because I was a bit of a slacker - I never bothered with it. My teacher then went on to assign us roles from the stories for an assignment, wherein we had to dress up like our characters and bring a bag full of their personal belongings. Being that my life is hilariously embarrassing most of the time, I was given the v glamorous role of Dung Farmer. I filled my bag with Febreeze and a pooper scooper and gave my presentation, and I never thought of this book again. Until now.
.
I figured I should probably try to read it, and I’ve been in the mood for medieval stuff lately. Luckily, I discovered after purchasing that this edition contains a translation. Naive moi, I actually thought at first that I could read and comprehend Middle English all on my own (I can’t).
.
Have you read this? Any tips for getting through it, because it is THICK.

Good morning!
Do you guys like purchasing books from other countries? I like how they look different. I actually prefer the UK editions of the TOG series over the US ones (though I must say that I still 100% adore KOA and I will cherish anything with Charlie Bowater’s artwork on it.) It doesn’t apply to every series that I collect, since the aesthetic is usually the same, but I do quite like uniformity. .

〚 MAY 20 2018 〛
Q: What is your favorite character archetype?
⇓⇓⇓
Today is so exciting for me because I'm starting a new job! I got a summer position at an aerospace engineering firm, and today is orientation. With this in mind, I thought I would talk about one of my current favorite character archetypes. I call it "the working girl". These are characters like Karen from Daisy Jones and The Six, Miriam from Spinning Silver, or Cha Cha from the television adaption of The Umbrella Academy. Female characters who are more focused on their personal career than they are about relationships. So often, I find that a woman's arc in literature is somehow attached to a man or motherhood or some sort of relationship. And there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with this. These are important stories to tell and I enjoy reading them. But as someone who prioritizes her work and studies, I enjoy seeing like minded women in my reading. Often, they take no shit and worry about climbing ladders and perfecting their craft over making people happy or building a family. Think Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada. Some people view these characters fairly negatively, like Devil Wears Prada comments on, but they are real women and I love seeing myself represented on these pages. I hope to keep finding characters like these.

When did you fall in love with reading?
•
I’ve always loved reading, as a child it was my escape and adventure. However, it was my mom who really cultivated my love. I still have books passed down by her, well worn and loved. Some of that collection is her Victoria Holt gothic mysteries. They aren’t my typical genre, but they will always have a special place in my heart.

Hello Rachel (@wickwishcandleco)! My name is Emma, and I am a 21 year old university student living in Minneapolis, MN. I am an avid reader and aspiring writer and photographer, as well as an amateur candle collector. I love stories that are fantastical, historical, and mythological, and tend to collect candles for my favorite stories of these genres. I love my Gansey candle, because Maggie Stiefvater is one of my favorite authors. I reread The Scorpio Races every single November. I've fallen in love with your company; you create amazing scent combinations and beautiful packaging for your candles. It would be such a privilege to help support your company and introduce other readers and candle collectors to your products. Thank you for the opportunity to represent Wick Wish Candle Co. and for considering me as a potential rep or influencer. I'm a smaller account, but I am passionate about the photos I take and the books I read, and I love engaging with other members of this amazing community. I hope you will consider me for one of your positions. I wish you all the best luck in your search! 🖤 Emma

"O Jogo do Anjo" - Carlos Ruiz Zafon [7/20] " [...] esse lugar é um mistério. Um santuário. Cada livro, cada tomo que esta vendo aqui, tem alma. A alma de quem escreveu, a daqueles que leram e viveram e sonharam com ele. Cada vez que um livro troca de mãos, cada vez que alguém desliza os olhos por suas páginas, seu espírito cresce e se fortalece. Neste lugar, os livros que ninguém mais lembra, os livros que se perderam no tempo, vivem para sempre, esperando o dia em que chegarão as mãos de um novo leitor de um novo espírito...".
.
📌mais uma vez Carlos Zafon me fez chorar com sua escrita, um livro intenso, que te trás uma ligação profunda e inexplicável.
.
📌novamente, ao ler, você passeia por uma Barcelona, na minha opinião, mágica, e por locais imensamente familiares, como a Livraria Sempere e Filho e o Cemitério dos Livros Esquecidos.
.
📌David Martin, nosso protagonista nessa historia de suspense, amor e fé, nos prova que absolutamente tudo na vida tem um preço e você precisa saber com certeza, se esta disposto a pagar para ver.
.
📌leitura intensa, que me fez sentir órfã quando cheguei ao fim; chorei feito boba, com o laço que criei com os personagens.
.
📌DICA: leiam "O jogo do anjo" antes de ler "A sombra do Vento" e a conexão será ainda maior.

“You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave of heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart.”
— “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” by J.K. Rowling

Happy Sock Sunday! This one is for my house - Gryffindor. I chose Gryffindor as my house because encouraging myself to be brave and being proud of myself when I succeed drives me to push myself, achieve my goals and try new things. Also, red is my color. 🦁

What house are you in? Why did you choose your house? ❤️

Q: What are some current goals you have? What do you want to achieve this summer?
⇓⇓⇓
As an avid reader, one of my favorite things to do beside read stories has always been to create stories of my own. I'm a bit of a notebook horder and I've always been filling them with words and scraps of inspiration. Sadly, during school, I always find myself piling my notebooks away in boxes to be replaced by textbooks, but now that the semester is over, they are starting to creep their way out. This summer, I really want to keep putting down my ideas for this story that has really spoken to me (which you can get a teensy taste of on this scribbled page). My goal by the time school starts back up again is to have all of my character arcs figured out and a solid structure of the plot. I'm such an organized, list-oriented person that I need a map to follow once I start putting the story down on paper. But hopefully in a few months time I'll be in a position to start writing. That's my biggest goal for this summer.

This is my Barnes and noble collectors edition of a gathering of shadows. I got the rose gold one from B&N but the sticker left gross sticky stuff on the cover. Any book nerds have any tricks to get it off?

I just finished Good Talk by Mira Jacob (@goodtalkthanks ) and loved it so much that I had to draw one of my own interracial couple experiences, in the style of her book, of course. I’m white American and my husband is Indian. Every time we fly through O’hare, TSA always assumes my husband and I aren’t together. Without fail, my husband is the one they always call out. I know their job is to be alert and careful, but it’s telling that they assume that white families “belong” together while also assuming that my husband must be doing something suspicious when he follows me to the agent’s stand.
__
Good Talk by Mira Jacob was the first book I read that spoke to what it’s like to be an interracial couple in America, especially in the age of Trump. For the first time in a long time, I felt seen. ❤️

P.S.-My rendition here is a poor representation of the fantastic quality of Jacob’s art in the book. I clearly cannot be a graphic artist. 😂

Look really closely on the staircase—do you see three frightened cats? This was where my cats found refuge from that scary puppy I had brought home last week. It was my friend’s puppy (a pomsky) and she let me take her for a couple nights as a trial to see how my cats would do. Sadly, it didn’t work out—the dog was unhappy and the cats were unhappy (and a little mean), so I think we’re not quite ready for a dog yet. Hopefully someday.
.
This spiral staircase is the best cat tower ever—they love to sleep and play on it (plus get safe from anything scary below). Many of you have asked about how my library came to be so I thought I’d share today—it all started with this spiral staircase that led up to a loft in a bank-owned home I walked into a little over 7 years ago. There were a couple flimsy bookcases in the loft, but I knew immediately this house had the bones to become my perfect library. (I’ll add the before photo to my stories.)
.
The whole house needed a ton of work, and we lived in the basement while the top two floors (plus the attic) were under construction. We added beams and tin on the ceiling,  custom bookshelves to the top and bottom of the loft, re-stained the wood floors darker, had to install a new gas fireplace insert because the old one didn’t work—it took months but when it was finally finished, it was the library I’d always hoped for. (I had kept a little folder of home libraries that inspired me, although this was before Pinterest. 🤣) Point is—it’s fun to dream about the library you’re going to have someday. I still can’t believe I actually have mine! What will yours look like?

The whole house needed a ton of work, and we lived in the basement while the top two floors (plus the attic) were under construction. We added beams and tin on the ceiling, custom bookshelves to the top and bottom of the loft, re-stained the wood floors darker, had to install a new gas fireplace insert because the old one didn’t work—it took months but when it was finally finished, it was the library I’d always hoped for. (I had kept a little folder of home libraries that inspired me, although this was before Pinterest. 🤣) Point is—it’s fun to dream about the library you’re going to have someday. I still can’t believe I actually have mine! What will yours look like? . . . #booklover #myhomevibe #bibliophile - 4 days ago

“That's what resistance looks like, Merlin. It's not one glorious, shining victory. It's a torch that you keep burning, no matter what.”
— “Once and Future” by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy

Okay, I’m so ridiculously late to the party, but I’ve been watching Lucifer and loving it. The humor is so much of what I like in a murder-of-the-week show. It keeps things interesting and fun no matter how methodical the mystery solving side of the show is. I’m so glad Netflix picked it up and made another season. I’m halfway through season two, but I’m glad there are still so many episodes to go! 💙

Have you watched Lucifer? What tv show did you get into long after everyone else? 💗

“I would have come for you. And if I couldn't walk, I'd crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we'd fight our way out together-knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that's what we do. We never stop fighting. " - Leigh Bardugo

i know, right?
posting on instagram about the effects our phones are having on us. 🤔😄
this is GOOD. & short. & i’m wondering if anyone wants to jump in with me?
It’s 3 parts, the 3rd being a 30 day guided plan for ‘the break up’ - this is NOT about giving up our phones and all of their uses (practical, beneficial & yes, for fun & connection), but about reevaluating our relationship with them. At what point are we addicted & looking for that dopamine rush? who’s in charge? 
I want to be sure it’s me & that i’m being a good steward of the time i’m given.
(& for the record, i’ll delete a lot off my phone and track my time spent here, but i’m not lookin’ at ‘bookstagram’ as a ‘guilty’ party. In moderation, time spent among fellow readers - even if virtually - is time well spent).

Good afternoon, everyone!
Can you believe that I was finally able to properly sleep in? Finally got proper sleep this is so great. I like sleeping. It’s really nice. 
SO, if you guys didn’t see from my stories a week ago, I have heart eyes for this book. And you best believe that the second I finish Carry On (potentially today) I’m going to start reading this. I’m so incredibly excited. 
I am also going to pull out my tablet again for the first time in ages, because ‘tis the season for NU’EST birthdays, which means fanart must ensue. Aron’s birthday is in a few days, so I must make haste! .
.
.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! .
