hope can be a powerful force. maybe there's no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.⁣

uff. so now i've finished both daughter of smoke and bone and days of blood and starlight. i'd love to just dive right into book three but it's 600 fricking pages and i think i first need something shorter.⁣
⁣
dobas dragged a bit, but by the last 100 pages my heart was beating so fast and i had to put the book down a few times to take deep breaths lol.⁣
____________________⁣
⁣
i've noticed that i stopped taking notes while reading and that's... not cool. because then i won't be able to write reviews. i don't know why but i've been lacking the motivation to write. anyway, 4 stars for dobas.⁣

a few years ago i read daughter of smoke and bone but never continued the series. now i am rereading it and wow. i forgot how good this book was. i am completely in love. the writing and world building in this one is as amazing as it was in strange the dreamer. just this time, i actually like the romance a lot more (i haven't reached that part yet but i remember liking the couple from my first read).⁣
⁣
i haven't even finished this series but like, can laini taylor hurry up and write more books? please??⁣

perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood.⁣
‒ george orwell, nineteen eighty-four⁣
____________________⁣
⁣
after two years, i have finally managed to finish 1984.⁣
⁣
most of the time, i did not enjoy it. i didn't care for the characters or the romance. the plot dragged on and i was bored. the book was written more like an essay than a novel.⁣
⁣
then why do i still think everyone should read 1984?⁣ the world building is terrific. it's also terrifying and unforgettable.⁣
⁣
maybe not the best novel, but thought-provoking and relevant.⁣

for people could close their eyes to greatness, to horrors, to beauty, and their ears to melodies or deceiving words. but they couldn't escape scent. for scent was a brother of breath. together with breath it entered human beings, who couldn't defend themselves against it, not if they wanted to live. and scent entered into their very core, went directly to their hearts, and decided for good and all between affection and contempt, disgust and lust, love and hate. he who ruled scent ruled the hearts of men.⁣⁣

i noticed that perfume was on netflix and having finished the book this week, i couldn't resist watching the movie!⁣
⁣
the movie was obviously lacking a few scenes from the book, but the scenes that were included were fairly accurate!⁣
⁣
also, alan rickman is in this movie. why didn't i know this? he was so good. as always (see what i did here).⁣
⁣
there's one thing that i didn't like and it bothered me. a lot. they made grenouille appear less like a monster. ok, don't get me wrong. he still does horrible things in the movie, but they tried to make him more human. why would they do that? i hated it. he was disgusting and without remorse in the book until the very end.  i thought that was the point lol.⁣

time for light summer reads! right?⁣

i always say that i prefer light and fluffy reading in summer but apparently i just talk shit and don't actually give a fuck about the weather. because now i'm reading perfume: the story of a murderer. hah, yeah, super fluffy.⁣

whatever, finally a german book! and i love the writing! jackpot.⁣
