Extreme torment and despair at the hands of a paperback.

14 Thoughts of a Devout Reader

We literature lovers know what we love in a book, we also know what we dislike in a book. Its always nice to find that book that draws you in and keeps you there. We all have a few thoughts that we have when we read books. Heres a list of 14 of them.

1. How do I pronounce this name?

You know them. Eadlyn, Rhysand, Hermione, etc. We all have them.

2. I don't know what that word means, but I don't want to stop reading to look it up.

"Excogitate" to consider or think something out carefully and thoroughly.

3. Oops, I found a typo.

"Then she she laughed."

4. I really like this character, I hope they don't kill them.

This is a very real fear in some books, and with some authors *cough* Cassandra Clare *cough*

5. Wait, who's talking again?

Too many pronouns!

6. I don't remember anything I just read.

I read half a page and didn't retain a single word.

7. Who is this chucklehead?

This person was extremely detailed and then never talked about again? NO, they must be important.

8. Did they really just use the "She let out a breath she didn't realize she was holding," line?

Seriously, why is this line so popular?

9. Just one more chapter.

Then you finish the book and didn't realize you read for an extra two hours.

10. Why are humans trying to talk to me right now? Can they not see I have a book in my hands?

When I have a book, I don't want to talk to you.

11. Wait, this isn't the end, right? There has to be more.

When a book ends in a major cliffhanger, leaving you distraught.

12. When is the sequel released?

Google! Google as fast as you can!

13. WHAT?? IN A YEAR???

I have to wait a full year to know what happens next? How will I survive?

14. I guess I'll have to reread it.

So you do.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
