My Motherhood Journey (So far)…


So I’m a mommy now.


For those of you who are parents, too, you probably know just the sense of incredulity that I’m feeling these days. Sometimes I look at my son and think, “Whaaat? You’re my son??” It’s so mind-boggling. For those of you who aren’t parents or aren’t parents yet: one day you’re just walking around, just you, and the next, a whole soul comes out of your body. Sound nuts? Yeah, it i

“Villains, the deliciously wicked. We love to hate them and they hate to be loved, if only because being hated frees them from having to be good.”
Ameriie, Because You Love to Hate Me: 13 Tales of Villainy

“Villains. Stories are nothing without them. Heroes cannot rise to greatness without them. In the absence of an enemy, our beloved protagonists are left kicking rocks in the Shire or taking tea and biscuits in a mind-numbingly cheery Spare Oom. We love villains because they turn their aches into action, their bruises into battering rams. They push through niceties and against societal restraints to propel the story forward. Unlike our lovable protagonists, villains - for better or worse - stop at literally nothing to achieve their goals. It's why we secretly root for them, why we find ourselves hoping they make their grand escape, and it's why our shoulders sag with equal parts relief and disappointment when they are caught. After all, how can you not give it up to someone who works that damned hard for what they want?... Look into a villain's eyes long enough and we might find our shadow selves, our uncut what-ifs and unchecked ambitions, a blurry line if ever there was one.”
Ameriie, Because You Love to Hate Me: 13 Tales of Villainy

“And sometimes the princess needs to get off her ass, pick up a sword, and slay the dragon herself.”
Ameriie, Because You Love to Hate Me: 13 Tales of Villainy

Totally ready for that lol. Completely unrelated: you have to read The Raven Boys! I think you'll enjoy it! Kat, as well. I'm looking forward to what you two think about it. Also unrelated: I don't think I'm using my comments section correctly. Am I supposed to be seeing my OWN comments? Hopefully you'll see this message, as I'm still unsure how this section works. *going to figure this out*


Amerie Soooo many great books to read. Your updates have me adding to a TBR pile that is beyond ridiculous--I'm a book hoarder so it's okay, although it is bad when you start getting anxiety about all the books you're behind in reading. >.<
