My adolescent development teacher said if I didn’t like getting up early in the morning, then I should rethink my career aspirations. I know he was probably joking, but I have enough doubts without his helpful input.

I cannot nap. I have to go back to my adolescent development teacher’s classroom to recopy answers because apparently we needed pencil. I’m more concerned about the whole awkward spiel that’ll be gone through.


Hi everyone! It’s Tilly and Jesseca here and we’ve decided to do a giveaway with a bit of a twist; you don’t know what book you’re getting. Most of you have heard of the blind date with a book deal. You pick a book that’s wrapped up and you only have a vague description of said book. We decided this would be an interesting concept for a giveaway, so here we are! Details:

  • Reblogs and likes count as entries, you can reblog as much as you like so long as you don’t spam your followers and no giveaway blogs.
  • You must be following she-was-too-fond-of-books and tilly-and-her-books
  • There will be 8 winners chosen at random and each winner will receive one book, we think this will give more people a chance! You will get to choose a book using the descriptions above and you will not find out what book you get until you receive it.
  • We will be using The Book Depository for this giveaway, so please make sure they ship to your country!
  • This giveaway ends October 15th, so you have quite awhile to reblog. We will be picking winners in the following days, please have your ask open, you have 48 hours to respond!
  • You must be comfortable with giving either us your address.
  • The books will be in paperback!
  • We will reveal the titles of the book when the giveaway is done and the winers have revived them.

Any questions about the giveaway or us you message us here: she-was-too-fond-of-books (Jesseca) or tilly-and-her-books (Tilly)

Oh my goodness

My theatre class was cancelled, and I didn’t know until I checked my email, but we are all sitting here waiting for a teacher that isn’t coming. Oh gosh, what do I do?

Aw yes. I rearranged every desk in my theatre class’ room and it looks pretty. I feel accomplished today


Pluto becoming a planet again has really taught us that if we complain hard enough about something, we can change things, even on a planetary level


First of all i will not be giving away 100 books (If i was rich enough to give away 100 books I would but i’m an 18 year old who spends too much time on the internet). My giveaway is based off my 100 book reading challenge (there’s a full list of all the books there and you can also enlarge the photos above to see the selection.) hence the name for my giveaway. All these books are from the list i plan to read. So i haven’t read them all but from what people have said there are A LOT of good books here. 

Secondly theres actually 102 books here. hehe!

Anyway if you didn’t know by now this is a book giveaway! *cheers*

Well, definitely gonna be avoiding American Horror Story this season. Circuses and horror really don’t mix for this cat.

Same reasons I had to skip season 2.

Love you, baby. <3

I watched one episode of the first season and couldn’t watch anymore. It made my mood plummet for days
