miscommunication as a plot device makes me angry

if you just talked to each other but no

If you have ever lost someone very important to you, then you already know how it feels, and if you haven’t, you cannot possibly imagine it.
— The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events) by Lemony Snicket

I am in love with this edition of Jane Eyre I found today.

This first sentence sold me on the entire series and I’m not kidding.


Be not afraid of greatness…

Hey, everyone! I’m not sure if this giveaway will work because I don’t have as many followers as people do when they typically start doing giveaways, but I wanted to do something in celebration of Halloween. So, if it does work out, awesome. If it doesn’t, I don’t have to spend any money and that’s cool too. :)

But, just in case…..


1. You don’t have to follow me (unless you want to, of course) as this is a Halloween celebration and that’s not limited to my followers. 

2. No giveaway blogs.

3. Likes and reblogs both count but be careful not to spam your followers.

4. Open Internationally through Book Depository (If they don’t ship to your country, I will try to figure something out but I apologize if arrangements can’t be made so be prepared).

5. There will be two winners (chosen randomly) and they get to choose one book from the ones listed (may not necessarily be the editions listed).

6. You must be comfortable giving me your address (I won’t do anything else with it, I promise) and you’ll have 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen so make sure your ask box is open!

6. Giveaway ends October 31

My sister said that if this got 10,000 notes, she would read Harry Potter, which she has refused to read ever since she existed. This series is everything, and her 12 year old mind shouldn’t live without it. Please help me out, I really want to see her fall in love with HP the way we all did!
