the english language, everyone

This hit me like a brick

And people wonder why authors use italics and bold so readers understand what the hell is going on.

“What the hell are they talking abo- oh.”

Organised my bookshelves like the TREMENDOUS NERD I AM.

THE MANGA IS NOT ONE STAR - I ONLY PUT IT THERE BECAUSE IT WAS THE SHELF WITH THE MOST ROOM PLEASE STOP WITH THE WEEABOO HATE MAIL

Haha, that’s hilarious. I was looking at it thinking, “What do you have against manga … ” and then that last comment. Love the idea of the bookshelves. If I bought books without reading them first my zero and one stars would be full, but I check out everything from the library first these days. So my whole self is four or five stars for me.

Writers Are Not Their Characters

sassmaster-general:

I am consistently baffled by the idiotic children on this site who do not understand the very simple concept of, “A writer is not their character(s).”

How can you not understand this concept?

How does it fly right over y’all’s heads?

How can people be this fucking stupid?

It’s so refreshing when YA books don’t have a “happy” ending where everyone lives happily ever after. A lot of authors that write for this age group tend to think, whether they intend to or not, that younger generations can’t handle it if the guy doesn’t get the girl, or the protagonist’s main…

One of the things I like about YA are the happy endings, but I completely agree: Every Day has the perfect ending. A happy ending simply would not have fit there.

Romantic YA Novels

Going through the YA Novel tag I run into a post showing people complaining about there being so much romance in YA novels. There are YA novels that aren’t romances. If you don’t like romance, then don’t look for books in that genre. It is after all a genre.

If anything they are the ones being sexist (they are calling the authors sexist), because they are all assuming the books were written only for young adult girls. Boys want to be loved just as much as girls want to be loved. They read romance as well. Tons of boys are fans of The Fault in Our Stars (a pure romance) and The Hunger Games (which also has a strong romance sub-plot).

It has nothing to do with girls need to be “fixed” by love, but that most people in the world desire love.
