just started reading the good doctor and even just by chapter 2 i’m loving it so much??? 🥺 i was gonna copy in my favourite line so far but it’s all of them. all of the lines. the fam actually acting like a family in the way i’ve been craving from the show is SO good i wanna cry. like this whole segment has a couple of my so far favourite bits:
Ryan loved to watch the Doctor dance with the TARDIS. That was what it was. Some days it was a jive, the Doctor jumping and prodding at the console, and some days it was more like a waltz; slow and deliberate. Today it was perhaps a flamenco type thing with added arm flourishes.
‘Well hopefully that settles your argument,’ the Doctor said as the TARDIS dematerialised. The vortex beyond the edges of the console room started to swirl and shift as they flew through space and time.
Yaz frowned. ‘What? Ryan said dogs were cleverer than humans.’
The Doctor’s eyes widened. ‘Yeah. And I think I ably demonstrated that they’re just as clever as each other. End of discussion.’
‘She’s got you there.’ Ryan gave Yaz a nudge.
‘OK, I owe you a fiver, whatever.’
Graham shook his head wearily, pulling off his shoes and giving his left foot a rub. ‘This life you lead, Doctor. Absolutely mad. Barking mad.’ A broad grin broke out on his face. ‘Barking. Geddit?’
The Doctor smiled, pulling a lever on the console. ‘Ooh, you’re wasted on us, Graham. You should be on the stage. Interesting story actually. Remember Laika? That poor doggo the Russians blasted into space? It’s her DNA the loba ultimately evolved from.’
Yaz’s jaw dropped. ‘What? No way?’
The Doctor’s eyebrows flashed up.
‘As if! You’re having us on? There’s no way ...?’ ‘Isn’t there?’
The Doctor gave Ryan a sly smile, but he had no idea if she was kidding or not. You never could tell with her.
like we have them teasing each other, making bets with each other, graham’s there with the dad jokes, the doctor looking to ryan with ‘a sly smile’, ryan and all his lovely observations of the doctor. and then on the next page:
The Doctor smiled as the TARDIS landed, the column grinding to a halt. ‘Yasmin. You do the time travel explanation for Graham, yeah? We’ll be back in five.’ She took Ryan by the hand. ‘Come on, you, let’s make this a ninja- like return visit.’
she grabbed his hand???? im gonna cry

Decide my next book buys
Ok, so I am a terrible decision maker and this really doesn't help when buying books. My last day of school is the 24th of June, and I am going to buy myself two books as a little gift. I know that I am going to buy Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim, but I have 2 options for the second book.
All our hidden gifts by Caroline O'Donoghue
We Free the Stars by Hafsah Faizal
I'll buy the one y'all decide because I'm useless at choosing
Thanks aha xx
