Reading Is My Alibi

Ask me anything   About Me   

Avid reader, librarian, writer, and all-around lover of books.

Feel free to ask me anything, I promise I don't bite :)

"Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate."

I hate when the media makes The Hunger Games look like a battle for love. Get your bullshit fantasies away. This is about murder, over powered government, and a girl trying to change the way things are. News flash not every girls fantasy is to find true love.

the irony here is that our media is doing exactly what the Capitol did in the books; downplaying the murder, focusing on the bullshit love story

"Books admitted me to their world open-handedly, as people, for the most part, did not. The life I lived in books was one of ease and freedom, wordly wisdom, glitter, dash and style."

Without sadness, there can be no happiness.

Without pain, there can be no joy.

But if there is no hate, we still have love.

Do you ever just wake up and realize that you’re perfect just the way you are? Because you are, no matter what flaws you have, you’re perfect.
