Books + other stuff

I cannot believe my holidays are almost over, I have done literally almost nothing. Why do I always use my break to sign up for ficathons I know I'm not going to get finished early?

ANYWAY, THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN DOING WITH MY BREAK.

1. REWATCHING ONE TREE HILL, WHAT IS EVEN MY LIFE? STILL LIKE CHRIS KELLER. STILL WANT TO MARRY DANNEEL. I cannot be the only person on the internet who loves her and couldn't care less about her husband, right?

2. Rewatching Farscape (currently on hiatus after S1, see above). Still awesome. Still love everyone.

3. Reading comics, Emma Frost is the best thing in my life.

3a. Watching X-Men: First Class, having my heart broken at how not awesome Emma was. Otherwise pretty cool; Mystique is consistently my favourite thing about the movieverse.

4. Watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two, really dug it, Neville Longbottom can get it. Seriously, Matthew Lewis, look me up.

5. READING AWESOME YA LIT, WHICH IS WHAT I REALLY WANT TO TALK ABOUT IN THIS POST.

5a. HEX HALL. Seriously, if you're in the mood for a YA book that isn't all angst and depressingness and dystopias all the time, read this book. It is super fun! Plus, the main couple is actually friends first, it is really great, plus REALLY FANTASTIC (if disappointingly infrequent) MAKEOUTS, I AM SERIOUS ABOUT THIS. AND SHE HAS AN ACTUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HER FEMALE BFF, WHO IS GAY AND LOVES PINK, and I don't know what the general consensus is on Elodie but I loved her. There is also a sequel, Demonglass, and the third book is coming out in March. But don't wait until then, come read it now!

5b. DIVERGENT ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥. Okay, so this one actually is YA dystopia (it's very Hunger Games), but I'd still recommend giving it a shot even if you're sick of those, because I LOVED IT AND I NEED PEOPLE TO COME TALK ABOUT IT WITH ME. FOUR!!!! SERIOUSLY HE IS SO AMAZING, AND SO IS TRIS (WHO IS THE MAIN CHARACTER), AND I SHIP THEM LIKE CRAZY, AND BASICALLY IT IS SUPER AMAZING GO READ IT RIGHT NOW.

6. Updating my userpics, I FINALLY HAVE PARKS AND REC AND HAPPY ENDINGS AND GAME OF THRONES ICONS. Speaking of Game of Thrones, I may have to make a separate post about that later, this is already pretty long.
