like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this

there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as…

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

You love John Green. Of course you do. Now go love these:

Ask The Passengers by A.S. King for love against the odds

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell for all-consuming romance

The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson for love in the face of grief

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz for philosophising about life

Well, that’s is a cool tumblr. (By the way I have read all four of these books and liked them all very much.)

Two books to add to the to-read list. (I loved the other three.)

Today’s Google doodle honors the 195th birthday of Maria Mitchell, an early 19th century astronomer who rose to the top of her field at a time when women were scarce in university faculties and recognized positions in the scientific community.
An astronomy professor at Vassar College, she protested slavery and supported women’s suffrage and equality. Today the nonprofit Maria Mitchell Foundation in Nantucket promotes her legacy, and encourages all people to pursue a passion in science. 
Happy birthday, Maria!

"Yes, the Bechdel Test. It’s named for Alison Bechdel, who is a comic book creator. The test is, are there two named women in the film? Do they talk to each other? And is it about something other than a man? I actually think the Bechdel Test is a little advanced for us sometimes. I have one called the Sexy Lamp Test, which is, if you can remove a female character from your plot and replace her with a sexy lamp and your story still works, you’re a hack."

Comic book writer Kelly Sue DeConnick (Captain Marvel, Avengers Assemble)

LOVE THIS.

"People talk about escapism as if it’s a bad thing …once you’ve escaped, once you come back, the world is not the same as when you left it. You come back to it with skills, weapons, knowledge you didn’t have before."
