The best kinds of laughter:

  • Laughing so hard that your laugh becomes silent and you sit there clapping like a fucking seal
  • Feeling a six-pack coming up
  • Tears coming out of your eyes

#you know you’re fucked when its a combination of all three

imagine an american going to hogwarts determined not to live up to stereotypes and they do pretty well up until they discover their patronus is a bald eagle


As promised, here is my feels-themed giveaway! The books/series above all have one thing in common - they made me feel something. That doesn’t necessarily mean I cried but they definitely inspired some kind of emotional response in my robot-like self. They’re also some of my favourite books. Hopefully there’s a decent enough selection for you to choose from.

5 people will be sent a book of their choice from the selection above if they’re randomly selected as winners.

Please read the following:

  • To enter, like and/or reblog this post
  • You may reblog the post as many times as you like but don’t annoy your followers too much with it
  • I would prefer if you were following me, since this giveaway is a ‘thank you’ to my followers
  • This giveaway is international, as I am purchasing books via Book Depository and they have free delivery for the majority of the world. Double check that your country is included here
  • Your inbox MUST be open. I won’t be contacting anyone via fan mail
  • Winners may also choose a sequel to the books pictured above if it’s part of a series
  • Winners may choose which edition of the book they want, so long as it is paperback and under $15 (AU). The only exception is The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, which is over $20 and hardback. I’ll only be buying this for one person (if they want it) so I have enough for the other books, sorry! I just love it so much and want to be able to share it with at least one person, even if it’s expensive
  • One of the books, Alexander Altmann A01567 is only available as a prize for Australians, as it is unavailable on Book Depository. If Aussies would like this book, I will order it for you from Bookworld
  • If you’re not sure which book you’d like, I’d be happy to tell you more about them and help you pick one that suits your tastes
  • No giveaway blogs
  • If you’re uncomfortable giving me your address, don’t be. I won’t be saving it or giving it out elsewhere or anything
  • The giveaway ends August 1st 12PM AEST
  • Winners will be selected using a random number generator and have 48 hours to get back to me. I’m quite lenient on that but I would prefer if people replied ASAP so I can be organised
  • If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me

Good luck and happy reading, word shakers!

We Have Always Lived In the Castle by Shirley Jackson

*reads the last line again*

*closes the book*

*deep sigh*


*throws book out the window*

*jumps out the window after it*

*writhes in pain while clutching the book*

*cries and rocks it back and forth*

*puts it back down on the shelf*

*deep breath*

*Calls friend* “read this book”



people get so caught up on one small thing they don’t like, like their nose or something

things like salt and baking powder go into a cake and those things are gross alone but the cake is pretty damn delicious

this is the best fucking thing I’ve ever read

You hate walmart too? I thought I was the only one who hated it so much lol. Hell is only one of my endearing terms for it. I also like to call it devil-mart and voldemart. I never go there if I can help it. I don't even mind paying more for something if it means I don't have to go inside that store. I don't even know why I hate it so much.


Hahahahahaha omg I’m so stealing the term Voldemart, I hope you don’t mind. I hate Walmart too!! Ours is a super-mart and it’s always packed and the people are absolutely nuts. I try to avoid going at all costs. The people are creepy and it’s far, but I’ve been getting my glasses from their since I was seven so I have to go at least once every two years. ::sigh:: 

I’ve heard that they treat their employees like shit. and it doesn’t help that when I went in and asked where the books were, he led me to the office supplies…

Among avid readers, the several hour book gushing session is a necessary initiation ritual. If they can’t handle book talk, they’re going to have some difficulty in our friend group/roommate arrangement/etc.

haha ikr? she handled it fairly well and reads some herself, so I think it might work XD
