Book Tag, Day 1 | Ft. My Incredibly Unhealthy Sleep Cycles

So I was basically SUPER excited when I was tagged for this because there’s nothing more I love in this world other than boba, sleep, and QUOTES! As a self-professed person with no life, I like to scroll through Goodreads reading people’s quotes. (Which is mildly stalker-ish, because I feel like choice of quotes really says a lot about a person?)

Anyhow, a huuuge thank-you to the lovely Danielle @ Life of a Literary Nerd for the wonderful nomination! She is basically the best, and you should all immediately shower her blog with love and cookies because she totally deserves it! ❤

Also, here’s a quick life update that absolutely no one asked for but I’m going to give anyway:

  • I am functioning on three hours of sleep on average because DEADLINES and SCHOOL
  • No, I do not know how I’m still alive
  • someone help
  • :))))))))
  • (This is me, laughing through the pain)

Quote of the Day


So I recently reread And I Darken (and rewrote my review for it xD), and I never realized just how ingenious these lines were. Just to establish some context, the And I Darken series revolves around how the protagonist, an ugly princess (yes you read that right, an UGLY princess **cue shocked gasps**) refuses to have her willpower broken by restrictive societal norms!!

This quote is a clever twist on the typical “let her be beautiful and sweet and have a great bod and uh all that crap” blessing that fairy-tale godmothers bestow upon their princess charges. Because obviously, Prince Lada refuses to conform to our gendered expectations.

(Also, isn’t the font of the quote so incredibly satisfying for no particular reason? It’s just so bubbly and tall and okay I’ll stop)

  1. YES. I love this quote! When I read And I Darken I knew it was going to be one of my favorite lines in the whole series. Why? Because of all the reasons you mentioned — it’s just like the blessing the fairies give princesses, but this one has SUBSTANCE. It has meaning and value to Lada’s future!

    I’ve only read the first book so far, but I cannot wait to read the rest of it. Have you read other books in the series? If so, what do you think?

  2. Oh this is such a lovely quote – I really need to read And I Darken sometime, haha 🙂
    I’m sorry your sleep schedule is a bit messed-up, take care of yourself, try to rest even if you can’t fall asleep, take some quick naps or something, don’t forget to take breaks while you study and everything. Sending you positive thoughts and love ❤

  3. Beautiful quote! I went through a phase where I was absolutely obsessed with quotes although I’ve gotten over that now. But I still love the occasional nugget of wisdom, particularly when they’re simple. I think this quotation is a perfect example of that and I thank you so much for sharing!

    • thank you so much, I totally agree! I love how Kiersten White twists the typical godmother-figure, let-her-be-beautiful trope we see so often in fairy tales ❤ I think I'm still currently in that obsessing over quotes phase because I can't seem to get enough of them HAHA
