On a cold Autumn evening back in 2008, seven-year-old Tegan Anderson began to write her first short stories, finding a more creative way to learn her spellings. Many years and many more short stories later, she hasn't stopped for anything. Now, she's writing more than she ever believed possible. Tegan may write the worlds she would prefer to exist in but currently lives in Devon with her overflowing bookshelves and expanding imagination.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas [REVIEW]

After many months of my friend peer-pressuring me to read this and finally finding it in my local library, I finally read Throne of Glass.

This book started with an incredible premise: the most notorious assassin in the land is now a slave and is being offered to win back her freedom in a ‘to-the-death’ tournament (although this becomes ‘almost-to-the-death). For me, it went downhill from there...

“You're a painter. You're a baker. You like to sleep with the windows open. You never take sugar in your tea. And you always double-knot your shoelaces.”

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
“What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again.”

I’m going to start off with saying that I’m a bit sad NetGalley rejected my request, but my book arrived the day before publishing day so I have a beautiful physical copy to hold and cherish.

I got an eARC of this book from NetGalley, but it came out a year or so ago so I think it’s just an ebook in exchange for an honest review.

“We circle each other, our gazes remaining locked, the white dress fanning out and wrapping around our legs. Neither of us make any attempt to remove it as my free hand drops to her waist, hers on my shoulder. We spin and sway down the aisle in imperfect sync to the beat of the progressing song and eventually I feel my body relax, allowing a small smile to form.”
Tegan Anderson, Beauty in the Breakdown

“There was a moment where it feels as if we both suddenly let go. Let our worries, our pain, and our sorrow go. Nothing else seemed to matter before it was right there, right now, where we were supposed to be. The past was irrelevant. The future is still undecided.”
Tegan Anderson, Beauty in the Breakdown

“That was the moment when I almost forgot we were losing the narrative that is life.”
Tegan Anderson, Beauty in the Breakdown

“I think about dying but I dont want to die. Not even close. In fact my problem is the complete opposite. I want to live, I want to escape. I feel trapped and bored and claustrophobic. There’s so much to see and so much to do but I somehow still find myself doing nothing at all. I’m still here in this metaphorical bubble of existence and I can’t quite figure out what the hell I’m doing or how to get out of it.”
Matty Healy

“I can recount our small collection of memories from the time we spent exploring through those trees, running carelessly as if we were children again. I can easily remember the fallen tree serving as a bridge over the stream, the one that we both hung upside down from and felt all of the blood rush to our heads. I would give anything to regain that childlike sense of innocence we shared in our sparse moments of escaping from our problems. Unfortunately, they crept back as soon as the trees were fading into the horizon and the front door shut behind us.”
Tegan Anderson, Beauty in the Breakdown

“It’s times like this when it feels as if everything has gone from zero to a hundred miles per hour in an instance before crashing into a wall and exploding. You jump into a situation head first without knowing what’s going to happen and it ends up awful. You feel as if you will shatter at the slightest touch, about to crumble into dust if another situation becomes too ridiculous, too desperate.”
Tegan Anderson, Beauty in the Breakdown

“We repeat our trail of everything falling apart but not quite falling back together, of the dust of something settling but still remaining to be just that: dust.”
Tegan Anderson, Beauty in the Breakdown

“Eventually, we found that there was something quite beautiful about the way in which things broke down.”
Tegan Anderson, Beauty in the Breakdown
