Felt like doing some quicky paintings so it’s Sarah Rees Brennan fanart time! The top Lillian Lynburn from the Lynburn Legacies, and the bottom is a mermaid that was in about one scene of Turn of the Story (I can’t remember if she got a name or not), but she made an impression :).

Aw lovely! Lillian Lynburn, bun-wearing queen of all she surveys. ;)

And oh Elliot, what lips these lips have kissed!

What We Talk About When We Talk About YA

… Fellow grown-ups, at the risk of sounding snobbish and joyless and old, well, look, I am all those things but you should hear me out anyway, because I have opinions. LISTEN. It’s time to center the cultural conversation back where it belongs: on me. All YA is silly, sentimental and simple and I know this because mostly ladies write it and no one should make that much money from books about a vampire. …

This satirical essay is hilarious and great and sums up everything you need to know about Those Articles, so you don’t have to read Those Articles ever again. Which can only be a good thing, because they’re all the same anyway.

In short: HEMINGWAY. (Or James Joyce. But definitely some old white guy.)

Unmade waits for you with its sunrise (or maybe sunset) orange cover. It waits with its shadowy promises of FEELS. It waits for you to come and hold it close and let it complete what was begun in Unspoken and continued through Untold.

Don’t keep it waiting.

"

Girls shouldn’t fear for their lives when they’re just living them. Girls who are impassioned about their worlds, who want nothing more than to engage with their world, learn about that world, build empathy for this place and the people around them, who use their knowledge and their passion to give voice to their beliefs shouldn’t worry about their bodies—or their lives—being at stake for doing so.

And yet, because we’re asking for and raising our voices without waiting for permission to do so, it happens.

"
