With this week being my last reading list for a while & marking 1 year of doing this I want to end it with something different than what I do.
I would like to compile every author I have read & signal boost their Masterlist in one giant list.
So with that said, if I haven’t read your stuff yet or if there is someone you think that isn’t getting enough love on tumblr I want you to private message me. Give me their blog name or heck if you want to nominate yourself I will absolutely add you. I would say tag me, you can still do that, but tumblr doesn’t always notify me.
There are so many people I have read and others on my to read list. Besides this past week, my lists normally have a good outreach through the community.
Please signal boost this so we can make the last week the best one to date.

hey can anyone recommend me easy-to-read non-violent classic novels/short stories? a lot of classics tend to use more archaic language or convoluted sentence structures and it can be difficult to stay focussed

Rereading Skip Beat after finding out Kyoko and Ren realized they loved each other at the same time is a real trip. It seems so obvious that of course she was already in love with him, Kyoko's just the epitome of *beats back feelings with a stick* so literally everybody both in universe and the readers were like oh there's no way she loves him like that.

Fanfiction recommendation: 'And In Pathos, Defeat'
"Do not look at me with such trusting eyes; I do not deserve your loyalty. If you knew, if you had any idea of what I was about to do, you would turn your back on me and never look at me again with anything but disgust. But you do not know. You do not even ask. As ever, sirs, your faith - your unanswerable gift - leaves me… Humbled."
I cried when I read this fic.
It is not a very long story. A single chapter, less than five thousand words. A grand total of two scenes, maybe fifteen minutes worth of reading. A tale to break your heart.
This is not a fic that I would recommend to beginners, to newcomers in the world of fanfiction. But if - like me - you have been scrolling endlessly through the stories on ffn and ao3, if you have spent years reading every decent and half-decent fic you can get your digital hands on, then this is the fic for you.
This Harry Potter fanfiction takes the trope of unwilling dimension-travel (which we have all seen in 0800-Rent-A-Hero, or On A Pale Horse) and turns it on its head, looking at it through the reluctant eyes of Albus Dumbledore. If you have read either of the two fics which I have mentioned (and you really should), then this is the fic for you.
I don't know what to say, don't know how to explain the depth of emotion that runs in the heart of this story, beyond what I have already said.
I cried when I read this fic.
Read it here on ao3, and here on ffn.
"See the last who comes, Albus Dumbledore." the boy said softly, eyes still facing forward. "You send me to my death."

I gotta stop reading Goodreads reviews bc some people are ridiculous. Someone gave This Is How You Lose The Time War one star bc "it didn't focus enough on the sci fi elements" and someone else said the language was too "romantic"
But like. Yall. Its a romance novel. It is literally a story about two women falling and being in love. Its a sci fi setting, yeah, but its romance first. Its like reading a romance novel thats set on a farm and then saying it doesnt talk about horses enough jfc

Let's Discuss:
The absolutely CREEPIEST, SCARIEST or downright most DISTURBING literature you've ever read...
I just finished The Chestnut Man by Søren Sveistrup and it was fine, but I need worse or more or scarier or whatever you want to call it. I need sitting up at 3 AM finishing it with a pit in my stomach, scared to put my feet on the floor and watching my back a little to much. Help me? (Full disclosure...I live and breathe horror/dark psychology, so the weirder the better).

the abarat for the book ask 👀
added to TBR | on my TBR | couldn’t finish it | did not enjoy | it was OK | liked it | loved it | favorite | not interested
Ooh! I’d never heard of this before so I looked it up, and the results gave me some comics and a translated-from-Arabic play by Mustafa Lufti Al-Manfaluti, and I assume you meant the latter? If so, I’d absolutely love to read it and just added it to my list!!!!! Thank u for telling me about it 🙏🏽!!

Kisara? Or any other dragons if they got human personified?
Tumblr media
"Okay so...hypothetically, wouldn't Kaiba have an issue with that? I also haven't thought of the other dragons in that way so I don't know maybe? If the chemistry was there? Wait, what am I saying?!"

Book Review
Title: At First Sight
Author: Cameron Hart
Genre: Romance
Length: 177 pages
Format: eBook
Rating: 4/5 ⭐️🌟💫⭐️
Tumblr media
Review:
I know it has been a while; I finished another school semester and now that I am on my summer vacation, I expect to post some reviews of my latest readings. This book was cute, there is no other way to describe it. It is an instalove relationship between too neighbors. The main character is a curvy woman, I always appreciate reading about real characters. Overall, the story is funny, quirky, and romantic. It is a short novel, ideal for those times when you want something like and easy to read.
