How is it nearly 2016? What did I even do this year? Anyway, the fact that another year is nearly over means that it’s time, again, for Jamie‘s annual end of year book survey! This is my fourth time filling out this survey (check out 2012, 2013 and 2014) and, as always, it’s one of my favorite posts to write of the entire year. So let’s do this!
It is another rainy day and I am procrastinating like a pro so I decided to make another wallpaper. This one is for my new favorite quote – “I am not ruined. I am ruination” – which is said by Genya in Leigh Bardugo’s Ruin and Rising. I love this quote so much because it’s about determining your own worth and making people pay for their crimes. I originally wanted to add the Ravkan “Na razrusha’ya. E’ya razrushost” as well but that would have been a bit too chaotic.
Hi friends! Happy Thanksgiving! I have much to be thankful for this year, including ALL OF YOU. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it celebrates 1) being with people you love, whether it’s your birth family or your family of choice; and 2) reflecting on things you’re thankful for. One of the greatest blessings in my life has been the book blogging community. This community is a “family of choice” to me, providing me with so many dear friendships, so I wanted to come up with a way to celebrate with all of y’all. That’s how I came up with the idea of the Thanksgiving Book Tag–this is just a way to have a little fun and talk about some of the books that we’re most thankful for this Thanksgiving. Oh, and it also allows me to talk about food, another of my great loves. Though I can assure you that this English Trifle will NOT be on my dinner table this year. ;)
Disclaimer: I conducted a search to make sure a tag like this didn’t already exist, so I wouldn’t neglect giving due credit. My search didn’t provide any results, but I apologize if someone has already had this idea and I didn’t see it.
This tag was created by the lovely Alexa from Alexa Loves Books and Hannah from So Obsessed With, two of my favorite people. Obviously anything Throne of Glass related ends up on this blog eventually, because we’re not letting this one slide by. We were tagged by both Alexa and Gillian to do this, so let’s get started!
