“After that hard winter, one could not get enough of the nimble air. Every morning I wakened with a fresh consciousness that winter was over. There were none of the signs of spring for which I used to watch in Virginia, no budding woods or blooming gardens. There was only—spring itself; the throb of it, the light restlessness, the vital essence of it everywhere: in the sky, in the swift clouds, in the pale sunshine, and in the warm, high wind—rising suddenly, sinking suddenly, impulsive and playful like a big puppy that pawed you and then lay down to be petted. If I had been tossed down blindfold on that red prairie, I should have known that it was spring.”—Willa Cather, My Ántonia (Great Plains Trilogy, #3 )

“If this is all we get, then let's take it. I want to be fearless and free," she says, giving me a look, daring me. "It's just life, Will. It'll be over before we know it.” Five Feet Apart 💜
Happy First day of Spring! Today was the most perfect spring day! There was the zoo, laughter and giant mud puddles for my 3 year old to jump in. ❤️
This book has been on my TBR for so long and I think it’s going to be my first spring read! I’m hoping to get to the movie this weekend so I definitely want to read the book first! 🧡
QOTD - do you read a book before seeing a movie?
I like too but sometimes I end up watching movie first like to all the boys I loved 💛
I’ve been waiting soooo long for this day. I’m excited for warmer weather, green grass, blossoming flowers, lush trees, birdsong, and all the other magic of the season. I’m kicking off spring with my favourite colours, and a brand new adorable bookmark from @1107studioshop (be sure to use the code SWEETMARIE15 if you shop in Amber’s Etsy store!).
BTW, today on the blog I’m talking about spring cleaning your life, not just your home. If you’d like some guidance or ideas for how to change your mindset, form healthy new habits, let go of the things that aren’t serving you, and much more I hope you’ll check out the blog.

Happy Wednesday! Until I saw today’s @bookishcanadians prompt for #bookishcanadiansmar19 , I didn’t know that I owned so many blue books! Most of my books are black or very dark and muted colours. What’s your favourite blue book you own?

"I can believe things that are true and things that aren't true and I can believe things where nobody knows if they're true or not. " ✨
Q: What is your favourite mythology? ✨
I would say Greek mythology, only because I have been obsessed with it since I was little (yeah, I was that Greek myths geek in your elementary school 😆). However, in the past couple years I have become very fascinated by Norse mythology and Japanese folklore! I just have an obsession with the stories different cultures tell 📖
Really looking forward to watching the new season of American Gods (pictured is my Mr. Wednesday Funko), but I'm currently re-watching the first season with my boyfriend, so need to catch up with him first 😅

"... but she isn't pretty," Kevin was saying as she began to surface.
"You don't even know what she looks like," Daniel replied angrily. "You mauled her face before you had a chance to introduce yourself."
"It ain't just about the face, kid. She's built like a skinny ten-year-old boy."
"You are the reason why women think all men are dogs. Also, the term is sylphid."
"You read too many books."
"You don't read enough."
"I call it how it is."
"You have limited perception."
"Hey, it's okay," Alex interrupted. There was no graceful way into this conversation, but she didn't want to pretend to be asleep. "No offence taken."

Happy first day of Spring Angels!

"Let me guess. When you pictured the Mad Scientist's female partner, the mysterious Oleander, you saw a blonde, right? Yes, definitely a blonde. Large breasts, long tan legs, full lips, and huge blue doe eyes? Did I get it all? Or was there a French accent too?"
Kevin didn't respond. She glanced back at him; he stared out the window as if he weren't listening to her.
"Got it in one."

Is there a genre that’s not necessarily your favourite but one of your favourite books or series is in that genre?
I like sci-fi, but dystopian and post-apocalyptic aren’t my favourite sub genres (they scare me! 🙈😂). That being said, Under the Never Sky, Through the Ever Night, and Into the Still Blue are among my all-time favourite books. I absolutely love Aria, Perry, and Roar, and they have a very special place in my heart. Have you read these books? 💙 .
