If your TBR list works for you, that’s great. Get on down with your bad self. But if it makes you feel guilty or overwhelmed or depressed or unfulfilled or like you’re doing reading wrong, throw it away. Click “delete.” Trust your brain to remember the books you’re actually interested in, then trust your gut to pick out the right reads at the right time. Take recommendations from reliable sources, but know you are not committed or obligated to them. Remember that your reading life is yours. Read what you want when you want to. Buck the pressure, fuck the haters, and make room for the magic.

If someone called me chubby, it would no longer be something that kept me up late at night. Being called fat is not like being called stupid or unfunny, which is the worst thing you could ever say to me. Do I envy Jennifer Hudson for being able to lose all that weight and look smokin’ hot? Of course, yes. Do I sometimes look at Gisele Bundchen and wonder how awesome life would be if I never had to wear Spanx? Duh, of course. That’s kind of the point of Gisele Bundchen. And maybe I will, once or twice, for a very short period of time. But on the list of things I want to do in my lifetime, that’s not near the top. I mean, it’s not near the bottom either. I’d say it’s right above “learn to drive a vespa,” but several notches below “film a chase scene for a movie.

Showed a bit of skin. for myself
I wanted to be beautiful. For myself.

can you imagine Oliver having to show up at quidditch trials and say ‘anyone who’s here to try out for seeker better go back up to the castle because an 11 year old boy rode a broom for the first time today and McGonagall gave him the seeker position before asking me or letting me see him play sorry guys’
I’m literally watching that scene right now and now I can’t stop laughing
A library is never complete. That’s the joy of it. We are always seeking one more book to add to our collection.
