25 Adult Books For Fans Of YA - View the complete list on Epic Reads!
Ooh, many good books here. Although I love Karen Russell, I really do, but personally I wouldn’t include Swamplandia on this particular list—though a remarkable book, it’s got some triggering things that I think YA readers are often trying to avoid. I recommend The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly for a similarly mystical narrative style and themes, but a slightly less visceral treatment.
Rebloging this for later reference.
this bible-humper keeps claiming that post-birth abortion is real
Humper? Well maybe he does hump his bible. By the sound of it it could be true.

I was a Manic Pixie Dream Girl (via loveyourrebellion)
Not saying Wonder Woman is a manic pixie. Don’t get that twisted. But I guess this is really the problem with introducing Wonder Woman in a Superman/Batman movie as a supporting character instead of her own movie.

Can everyone please stop judging Gal Gadot on her looks and judge her more on how her acting sucks?
Word broke out that this was going to be a show on AMC. To my knowledge AMC has yet to confirm the news. Just make it happen already!

“John Constantine - the real John Constantine - by Dave McKean, from the UKCAC87 booklet. Neither the Hellblazer title or McKean & Gaiman’s Black Orchid would see print until the following year, meaning that this is an interesting glimpse of the artist’s approach before he was first published at DC.”
Trayvon Martin Commentary
I shouldn’t have replied to begin with. For one trying to convince someone of any thing in comments is 99.99% a waste of time and this guy is going to go on to be an ignorant racist without realizing how racist his comment was. As for teen boys of color. Especially if your black or brown. Drink, smoke, fuck up like other teens and you’ll be seen as a thug by a lot of people. Anyone who tells me this guy would call Trayvon a thug if he was white. I call bullshit.
