a-thousand-wordsHi, I'm Hannah.

I'm 25, English, and I love words.

Welcome to my tumblr.

an introduction

This blog is about words.
Expect to find beautiful quotes, introspective song lyrics, clever typography, picture quotes, and even the occasional cartoon that has made me nod in agreement, laugh or just think for a little while. A few carefully arranged words can say what 1,000 can't, and can connect people.

I started collect those quotes here so they wouldn't spam my original tumblr , or get lost in my likes, never to be seen again. Hopefully this way others will find and enjoy them too.

This is not a spoiler free blog. You'll find I am a fan of many things, and that filters through here.

(Please note most posts are queued. The twitter updates it's self.)

"The best moments in reading are when you come across something — a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things — that you'd thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you've never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it's as if a hand has come out and taken yours." - Hector, The History Boys.

Review; Flipped - Wendelin Van Draanen
7/10
“Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss….” He turned to me. “But every once in a while, you find someone who’s iridescent, and when you do, nothing will ever compare.” 
Sorry for my absence from here the past two evenings - thank goodness for the queue feature! I was finishing Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares and then started (and finished) Flipped, and loved it.
Bryce and Julianna are neighbours approaching their final year of middle school. Both can clearly remember the day Bryce moved across the street from Juli. When Juli spotted Bryce her world flipped upside down; he was perfect. Bryce however saw the event slightly differently, to him the annoying girl from over the road needed stop following him around and ruining his credibility. Over the next few years, very little changes until some eggs, a tree, and some family revelations and advice on both end start to flip Juli and Bryce’s opinions.
What if after a four year crush you realised the boy you liked wasn’t what you were really looking for? That maybe he wasn’t worth the feelings you had bestowed upon him. What if this happened at the same time he began to reluctantly change his opinion on you?
The basic premise of the book is a dual POV, you see one story from two sides with crossovers on key events.Despite this repetition the book isn’t boring an each character sees things differently, and have their own revelations.
I loved this book, downloaded it for my little sister but something made me read it myself. I may be 25, but I think there is something for everyone to enjoy in this lively but sweet story about learning what is really worth valuing in this world.
It had me laughing outloud, it had me damn near crying in public, and most importantly it kept me entertained. Now I just need to get my sister to read it!
Short version with spoilers here.Befriend me on goodreads here :)
