I am in tears. I reread the book a few days ago, and yet the graphic novel hits harder. It very emotional for me to see one of my favourite books come to life in such a unique way. This is why I love graphic novels. It isn‘t nearly as long as the book, but the impact which it had over me was through the roof. @Reyzl if you haven‘t already read this, please do.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

“For you, a thousand times over!”

Reyzl Thank you, @Sharv_Sona 🤗 it‘s one of my favourite books and I love graphic novels, so I‘d definitely love to read it! Did you borrow it from the library? 2w
Sharv_Sona @reyzl Yep! It‘s in the school library, I returned it today! :) 2w
Reyzl Thank you, @Sharv_Sona! I will borrow it when I finish the book that I‘m reading now 🙂 2w

Emma | Jane Austen

I finished reading this book on Thursday, but I was so caught up with it that I forgot to post quotes and a review.

I have to say, this book was a good refresher as it was a truly a gem. Then again, it‘s Jane Austen. It was a brilliantly written romantic comedy, and the character development was also amazing. Emma is a person who needed “fixing” at the time this book was set, and the way that Jane Austen wrote about her was great!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Just because he adopted a more modest pallet when he was abroad (wishing neither to offend the local loyalty nor to draw attention) didn‘t mean he had to sacrifice style.

This book was amazing. I started reading it the day I went to see the Auschwitz exhibit, and I fell in love with the writing immediately. The writing skills and the words were immaculate! I recommend this book to you, @Reyzl, I think you‘ll like it! I don‘t know why any of the quotes I posted aren‘t showing up (probably a problem with the app), but I hope that this post shows up 😅

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Reyzl Thank you, dear Sharvri!🤗 I add it to my to read shelf 📚 3w

I finished this book literally three minutes before my class started, and I was trying very hard not to break down. This book was so beautifully written, and I bet someone could cry just because of how V.E Schwab uses her words. All I'm going to say now is that V.E Schwab truly is becoming one of my favourite authors.⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

This was a quick read which I read as a break between the last book I read and it‘s sequel. It was adorable and very cute, but I think that if the storyline had more development, it would be a five-star book. Right now I‘m giving it: ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5/5

I don‘t know what to say about this book. It is so well written, and I feel as if V.E. Schwab is turning into my favourite author. This book was really heartbreaking, wholesome, and brilliant all at the same time, and I think that when an author can do that, they truly deserve a medal. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Not with a bang, but with a whimper.
In gunfire and out with smoke.
And August wasn‘t ready to die.
Even if surviving wasn‘t simple, or easy, or fair.
Even if he could never be human.
He wanted the chance to matter.
He wanted to live.

“Why do you even want to be human? We‘re fragile. We die.”
“You also live. You don‘t spend every day wondering why you exist, but don‘t feel real, why you look human but can‘t be. You don‘t do everything you can to be a good person only to have it constantly thrown in your face that you‘re not a person at all.”

A gust of wind rustled the branches overhead, sending down a shower of dying leaves, and between the fruit in his hand and his colourless eyes and the golden leaf stuck in his black curls, Freddie Gallagher looked more like a painting than a boy.

I don‘t have enough words to actually describe what I‘m feeling right now after finishing this book. It was that bloody brilliant. I am literally at a loss of words. My face may look unaffected but there is a war raging inside of me. This book, the author, I‘m in love. This book is a gem. I recommend it to EVERYONE!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Tell me something true, or tell me nothing at all.

quote
Sharv_Sona

I love you and I love you and I love you, on battlefields, in shadows, in fading ink, on cold ice splashed with the blood of seals. In the rings of trees. In the wreckage of a planet crumbling to space. In bubbling water. In bee stings and dragonfly wings, in stars. In the deapths of lonely woods where I wandered in my youth, staring up - and even then you watched me. You slid back through my life, and I have known you since before I knew you.

quote
Sharv_Sona

But when I think of you, I want to be alone together. I want to strive against and for. I want to live in contact. I want to be a context for you, and you for me.

I love you, and I love you, and I want to find out what that means together.

quote
Sharv_Sona

I want to meet you in every place I have loved.

quote
Sharv_Sona

Flowers grow far away on a planet they‘ll call Cephalus, and these flowers bloom once a century, when the living star and its black-hole binary enter conjunction.I want to fix you a bouquet of them, gathered across eight hundred thousand years, so you can draw our whole engagement in a single breath, all the ages we‘ve shaped together.

quote
Sharv_Sona

I want to be a body for you. I want to chase you, find you, I want to be eluded and teased and adored; I want to be defeated and victorious—I want you to cut me, sharpen me. I want to drink tea beside you in ten years or a thousand.

quote
Sharv_Sona

I love you. I love you. I love you. I'll write it in waves. In skies. In my heart. You'll never see, but you will know. I'll be all the poets, I'll kill them all and take each one's place in turn, and every time love's written in all the strands it will be to you.

This was a pretty good book, but in my opinion it was a bit mild for a thriller… there were quite a few intimate scenes, but I can‘t blame that as it‘s a book written by Colleen Hoover. Speaking of, Hoover is quite an amazing writer, because the writing was brilliant. Overall, I suppose I would give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5/5

This was a brilliant book. I loved the way that all the characters were portrayed and something that I loved the most was the character development. Often when we read books, we feel get to know characters, and what better joy is there to see your favourite characters develop their personalities and delve further into their stories? Great representation of the LGBTQ+ community, expertly handling labels. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Sharv_Sona

Why, until this moment, did I not realise that the issue is my own confidence? That the root of most of my problems is that I need to be secure enough in who I am to tell anyone who doesn‘t like it to go fuck themselves? Why have I spent so long settling for less when I damn well the world expects more?

You do not know how fast you have been running, how hard you have been working, how truly exhausted you are, until someone stands behind you and says, “Its OK, you can fall down now. I‘ll catch you.”
So I fell down.
