Now Playing Tracks



Remember how a few months ago I was musing about what things you guys would like to see if I hosted a Raven Cycle readathon? Well as you may or may not have guessed that wasn’t really hypothetical. This readathon is ACTUALLY HAPPENING. And I am so so so very excited.

I’d really love it if a lot of people joined. We have weekly posts and challenges planned, international giveaways, twitter chats, a scavenger hunt, a Q&A (which we really need to finish organising…)

Want to know more?

When is it? The readathon starts on the 28th of August 2014 and ends on the 27th of October. We’ll be dedicating about a month to the two Raven Cycle books that are currently out.

Where is it? Primarily, this is being hosted at Books of Amber and Readers in Wonderland. Weekly posts and discussions will appear there, but I will also be posting & rebogging stuff here on tumblr. There will also be opportunities for Twitter and Instagram to be used.

Also, we’ll be using the hashtag #TRCReadathon here on tumblr. It might be different for other social media (I’ll let you know as soon as Amber and I decide)

Who can join? ANYONE. People who a rereading, people who are reading the books for the first time, people who have a blog, people who don’t. Anyone and everyone is welcome.

Why should you join? Well it’s going to be AWESOME. You get to fangirl with fans of the book, do fun things related to the book, revisit this awesome story/experience for the first time. Why wouldn’t you join?

Interested in joining? Check out either Readers in Wonderland or Books of Amber for the official sign up post and sign up linky!


SO the dates for this have changed slightly. It’s now ending a week earlier (October 21st) because we found out that Blue Lily, Lily Blue was being released a week earlier (at least, according to Goodreads anyway); Everything else is still the same. Shall hopefully have a finalised schedule to post really soon :)








Because this is one of the first official posts I have a lot of general maintenance to do. All of the info here in this post (and more) can be found at Readers in Wonderland and Books of Amber.

This post is going to talk about the reading schedule, posting and event scehdule, giveaway details (which have become super awesome giveaways thanks to the generous Maggie Stiefvater, Q&A details, Twitter chat details, challenge details, just ALL THE DETAILS.


And because there’s so many I’m going to use the read more thing so I don’t clog up dashes! (I’m going to be spamming you with enough Raven Cycle stuff for the next few weeks)

But first, want to sign up to this readathon/long/thing? It’s not too late! Just visit the blogs I linked above for more details! And if you’re participating, be sure to tag everything with #trcreadathon!!

Now onto the boring and important stuff

Girl is pioneer at quarterback for Florida High School

That first picture just fills me with such joy and a feeling of hope.


It’s the last picture that gets me. Her eyes are off reading the defense, because she’s not handing off to the RB, that’s a fake. She’s the QB and she’d doing her goddamn job and she’s doing it well. GET IT GIRL.

“Everybody says, ‘What happens when she gets hit?’ ” Gatewood said. “This isn’t a knock on Erin, but she’s bigger than 10 kids on my team. I have a wide receiver that weighs 25 pounds less than her. And the pads she wears are the same as the pads he wears.”

theres a post going around “imagine a high school romance movie about a girl who works her ass off to play on the football team and eventually becomes the quarterback and she dates one of the cheerleaders” well thats this girls life basically. the cheerleader in the top picture is her girlfriend.

this makes me so happy, it’s ridiculous

Every time I read this I get real happy.
