My mother says that fanfiction doesn’t count as reading because “it isn’t nearly as good as the stuff that’s published. You’re not going to find something online that will win a Booker Prize.”
Please reblog if you count fan fiction as reading, or if the fanfiction you’ve read is equally as good as published novels. I want to see the figures.

"

Today I had a teacher tell me that a family member of theirs attempted suicide with pills.
I asked why he didn’t seem more concerned, and he replied with “people who attempt overdose are just attention seeking.”

Tell that to my grandma while she had to shower me for a month because I couldn’t stand after my overdose.

Tell that to my younger cousin who didn’t understand why I slept for three days straight.

Tell that to my bestfriend who saw me cry in every moment I was awake for two weeks after I swallowed those little pieces of hell.

Tell that to my brother who watched me vomit up everything I ate because my stomach was on fire.

Tell that to my teachers who watched me fail my exams because I was so dizzy and out of it I couldn’t stand, let alone concentrate.

Tell that to my mum, who watched me violently shake, sweat, convulse and cry in her arms because I didn’t want to be alive.

Go on, tell them it’s attention seeking. I dare you.

If you have not read anything about the Baudelaire orphans, then before you read even one more sentence, you should know this: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are kindhearted and quick-witted, but their lives are filled with bad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched and will most likely fill you with deep despair. (x)

It is the opinion of your hosts, literatureloveaffair and thebooker that Lemony Snicket’s chronicles of the Baudelaire children’s unhappy adventures is best experienced as a group, hence the birth of this rather unhappy readalong.

Sleeping Beauty (1959)

One gift, beauty rare. Gold of sunshine in her hair. Lips that shame the red, red rose. She’ll walk with springtime wherever she goes. One gift, the gift of song. Melody her whole life long. The nightingale’s her troubadour. Bringing his sweet serenade to her door.

self-love-for-all:

If you relapse, repeat after me:

  • You are not weak.
  • You have not lost this battle.
  • You are not selfish.
  • You are not out of control.
  • All the progress you made hasn’t magically disappeared.
  • You are not a failure.
  • Life is a cycle of highs and lows- good times are ahead, so keep going forward.
  • You matter.
