I'll make you a star in my universe

Apologies for my lack of blog posts lately. I haven't had much to talk about. I've been spending my days sleeping, my nights browsing through the internet. I have recently been sent a lot of eBooks by Aliyah, two of them being The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan and Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler. Both books are written beautifully in a second-person point of view, so now I can't seem to stop myself from writing prose in that way too. I highly suggest you get yourself a copy of both books if you haven't already. Why We Broke Up, in particular, gripped me tightly and shook me, kind of like a friend trying to knock some sense into another friend. I don't think any other book I've read has ever made me feel the way Why We Broke Up made me feel. I wasn't even expecting it to be that brilliant. I can't get the whole story and the characters that live within it out of my mind. My mom told me that the occurrences in within the book do happen in real life, thus shattering the 'one true love' idea I held on to in my head so dearly, and making me feel worse about the book and its characters than I already did. I was reduced to tears the moment I finished the book and the entire plot finally settled itself into my brain. This was basically me yesterday. I'm not going to spoil it any further - just read it for yourself and maybe cry with me. I hope you guys enjoy the new songs I've discovered (except for 'For You' by Angus and Julia Stone, which I've known for a while, but... enjoy it nonetheless).


  1. i also felt that feeling where it took me months reading a new book. i had the thing called "book hang-over"
