Books (Romance, Fantasy, Young Adult, The Works)

Bonjour my internet friends, 

I love books. Books are for reading. Reading is amazing. 

I have been a reader for years. I don't even remember starting, I just remember always reading. Nancy Drew, Junie B Jones, and Archie comics as a young reader. 

Believe me, I am a true internet kid. It is very hard to tear me away from the computer screen. Although, "There's a new episode of Once Upon A Time/Scream Queens/Modern Family/The Big Bang Theory on!" and "Get off the computer and do some homework! You don't have any? Go read a book!" will definitely help get me off my butt and onto another seat for another form of entertainment. 

The internet has helped me find other people who are in love with the fictional world. On Tumblr there are so many headcanons and fanart, I just love it. And on Instagram, it's the same. 

My only problem is when I get a really good book that I can't put down. Emphasis on 'can't put down.' 

I have stayed up until all hours to finish a book or series. And, this may seem weird but true, the bathroom is usually where this is done. 

I'll be reading on the toilet (please, I'm not the only one to do this) and the clock will start ticking and my butt will start to fall asleep so I'll finish up and sit on the toilet seat. But that gets uncomfortable after a while so I move to leaning against the bathroom door. Then I'll lean forward until I am laying on the bathroom floor. 

I am determined when I get close to the end of a novel. I have finished many of the Vampire Academy books this way. (I actually completed the series recently.) 

I love to read and if my 180 book collection doesn't give that away, I don't know what will. 

Books also include their authors and some of my favourite authors are JK Rowling, Rick Riordan, Veronica Roth, Suzanne Collins, Sarah Dessen, John Green, Rainbow Rowell, and many more. But specifically, my most favourite is Susane Colasanti. 

She is probably the absolute greatest. Her Young Adult Romance Fiction hooks me every time. (I cannot wait for the second City Love! I wrote a review here.) And I own 67% of all her books. As shown in that photo. 

And not only is she an amazing writer, she is great when she interacts with her fans on social media. 

The middle comment was on my photo of my bookshelf (first photo). The top comment and right Facebook post is for that photo of me on the stairs with her books. And finally, the tweet is about my review of City Love that I tweeted to her. 

I am just so happy that authors do these kinds of things for their fans. Especially when they stay up until 4AM to find out exactly if they fall in love or not. ;) 

Keep smiling beautifuls,

Autumn (Fashion, Drinks, School, and Much More)

 Bonjour my internet friends, 

“Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first September was crisp and golden as an apple.” 
― J.K. RowlingHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

I love autumn. I was born in October. Halloween. Leaves falling. Amazing fashion. Hot chocolate. Tea. Reading. Fireplaces and bonfires. Thanksgiving. Movie nights. Crunchy leaves. The colours. Comfort foods. Candy corn. Autumn rain smell. Sweaters. Cinnamon. S'mores. Hay bale rides. Corn maze. Scarves. Ankle Boots. Leggings. Foggy breath in the morning. The crisp air. Raking leaves. Toques. Braids. New seasons of shows. EVERYTHING. 

That photo I have attached up there is from this last fall outside of Old Navy and seemed to look autumnal so I am using it because I can't find any other good autumn photos of mine. 

School just started and I am nervous and excited. It is so nice to be in class again and see all the people I haven't seen in two months. Going back to school is the sign that fall has started and it excites me. I have good classes and good teachers. 

Halloween should be good. I have plans to try to go as a Disney princess. Maybe, we'll see. My group was going to do a group costume of Alice in Wonderland but none of the guys are in anymore. I was going to be the Queen of Hearts. Princess Belle now? Or Rapunzel? We shall see. 

I am already jumping in to the fall fashion. If you go on my Tumblr and look through the tag, fall fashion, you will see exactly how much I love fall fashion. Boots, leggings, sweaters, jeans, comfy scarves, toques, just so much cozy love! 

What I am most excited for is sitting by our fireplace (on the tv) and reading a good book in my sweater and leggings drinking hot chocolate or tea listening to my 1989 record. 

Also, my birthday. I am so close to 16 I could almost taste it. 

I have some plans but I think I need to have a meeting with my family to discuss what I could do. Both for my family party and friends. 

This is going to be a good final few months of 2015. 

Here's to 2016 and chapters 9 and 10 of 12. 

keep smiling beautifuls, 
Naddy xoxo
