I'm going through a book hangover right now...

And I blame Rainbow Rowell for causing it. 

THIS. *POINTS* THIS BOOK IS THE CULPRIT.

It continuously hit me in the FEELS and made me fall in love and it even made me cry once. No joke.

And once I finished reading the last page, I closed the book and just stared at it for a few seconds. 

Then I hugged it.



I was feeling both happy and sad that it was over. Like one part of me was like:



and the other part of me was like this: 


And then 


I need to figure out how to write a review that isn't a blathering mess of OMFG READ THIS NAO or YAAAAS. 


Btw, I also ordered the special edition copy from the UK and it's been dispatched from the book depository. I CAN'T WAIT YOU GUYS.


Multi-language "Let It Go" :D



Is anyone tired of the hype for FROZEN? Personally I'm still okay with hearing about it...and this song. I can't get over this song. I think it's beautiful how all these different languages can meld together and that the emotion in this song can translate over, no subtitles needed. It's kind of interesting how most of the singers actually sound similar to each other. Maybe it's for the song but still...cool nonetheless.

Also, the linguistic-y part of me is happy to see some less mainstream languages being featured and that dialogues of Spanish and French also got a shout-out. Thank you, Disney! :)

A really beautiful short called "The Duet"



Also, this happens to be my 600th post. Just thought I'd mention that ;)

Have a good night, my friends.

Shadow Scale has a cover!


Rachel Hartman, author of Seraphina (which I LOVED), posted the cover for Shadow Scale on her blog today. I really like the style of this cover and Seraphina's. Hartman also mentioned in her post that SC will be the second and final book. I had it in my mind that this would be a trilogy but I was mistaken. Oh well. Sometimes two well-written books are better than a trilogy with a middle book that suffers "second book syndrome." I have no doubt SC will be amazing and I can't wait for it to be released!
