Anonymous: so i jst started reading outlander because i trust your judgement and taste and the show looks like its going to be great and i am loving it so far but i got to the scene in the book after claire tries to run away and jamie punishes her and I LOVE jamie but now? it just made me really uncomfortable and i used to love them together but i just cant get over the fact that he hit her (u dnt have to publish the msg cause spoiler! but id like to know your opinion abt it

i think this is one of those things you either get over or you don’t, and if you don’t then you shouldn’t force yourself to carry on reading/enjoying it. if it’s made you so uncomfortable that you can’t get over it then you should drop it!!! and i don’t mean that in a “if you don’t like the book then don’t read it ner ner ner” way, but you shouldn’t feel obligated to read something that doesn’t make you feel good just because lots of other people like it, you know???

like personally it didn’t bother me at all; i read it as him delivering a punishment that would have been meted out to anyone (we see jamie take laoghaire’s ~punishment earlier on, and he has to whip one of his nephews in a later books and hates it, plus he talks about being whipped a lot when him and ian were naughty as kids). he didn’t want to hit her, and he didn’t do it because he was angry and lost control - it was something that was expected of him (and claire was expected to bear it and get over it). it definitely wasn’t nice, and claire was extremely vocal about how much she absolutely did not want to get hit and thought it was barbaric and awful, but it was part of life then and that was something that she, as a recalcitrant time-traveller, and we, as readers, had to learn 

so yeah it didn’t bother me at all because i didn’t see it as a domestic violence/abusive thing, just as a ‘in ye olden days’ thing/another way of highlighting the differences between jamie’s time and claire’s 

so that’s my opinion!!! but yo if you don’t like it and it makes you uncomfortable then don’t read anymore dude!!! like i’m really sorry to have to tell you this but jamie smacking claire on the bottom because she tried to leg it really is the least of your violence-related worries in these books

Fangirl challenge [10] OTPs Roman & Peter

"He was not comfortable with this degree of intimacy. He did not like where this was going. The layers of outer affectation peeled away to reveal the other boy’s inner need. His need that he thought Peter could somehow meet. The only thing that scared Peter off more than other people’s needs was a cage, though in the end what was the difference?"

Anonymous: this might like seem like a super dumb question, but which percy jackson book did you read first? I'm looking for a new YA/children's series to absolutely get into and never get out of and idk maybe its logan lerman or maybe its EVERYONE talking about these books but I wanna give em a go! :)

this might seem like a super dumb answer, but i read the first one first

the first series is percy jackson and the olympians, which is 5 books: the lightening thief, the sea of monsters, the titan’s curse, the battle of the labyrinth, and the last olympian. they’re all written in first person from percy’s pov and you will FALL IN LOVE with him and at least two other characters so brace yourself for that

the second series is called heroes of olympus, and there are currently four books: the lost hero, the son of neptune, the mark of athena and the house of hades (the blood of olympus is the last book, due out in october). percy is still a pov character, but there’s also 6 other pov characters (5 of whom are completely brand new characters) and it’s all in third person!!! it’s hard to get used to, personally i missed percy LIKE A LIMB for the first couple of books, but all of the 7 are super great and likeable characters so you get used to it pretty fast

so yeah start at the beginning!!! 9 books is REALLY DAUNTING but they’re super easy to read (they’re technically “middle grade” rather than YA). i whipped through the first 8 in just over a week and then spent 2 months on house of hades because i didn’t want it to end and to be left percy jackson-less until october

Anonymous: what would you say are the top most important ya books for people to read (sorry i just love reading your opinions about books and i'm always on the look out for more to read, sorry if this is annoying) <3

this…….is really difficult to answer, actually, because different books are important to different people for different reasons. ESPECIALLY ya books, which (most) people read when they’re teenagers - that shit is formative, and depending on what you read at what age and where you’re at emotionally when you read it……a book that totally fucked one person up that they’re gonna carry with them forever can just be “eh” for someone else. so something that i’d say “wow, this is so important, everyone should read this book!!!!” about might do absolutely nothing for you 

HOWEVER, i’ll rec you some of my personal “THIS IS SO IMPORTANT” books because i love talking about my faves: 

  • how i live now by meg rosoff
  • the perks of being a wallflower by stephen chbosky 
  • tuck everlasting by natalie babbitt
  • a monster calls by patrick ness
  • aristotle and dante discover the secrets of the universe by benjamin alire saenz
  • grasshopper jungle by andrew smith
  • code name verity by elizabeth wein

i haven’t included any series in this list buuuuttttttt the harry potter, percy jackson, artemis fowl and (the saga of) darren shan series are all bloody fantastic, even if they are more ~middle grade~ than ya

percy jackson, in particular, shines like a beacon in a sea of mediocrity!!! the latest books (heroes of olympus series) have a ~main cast~ of 7, 4 of whom are poc, not to mention a CANONICALLY QUEER 14-YEAR-OLD like goddamn i hope jkr is ASHAMED. (plus i went from knowing next to nothing about greek mythology to knowing a fucking shit load thanks to those books, and i read them when i was 22. all the kids who read these books must be tiny little SCHOLARS)
