What fantastic creature would you like to exist in the real world?
📚
for this pic i partnered up (#ad) with the guys at @redbubble who sent me this cute t-shirt that depicts my relationship status. did you know that in the middle ages people believed that they could lure unicors by using maidens as a bait? it worked so well that the unicorns became extinct. don't you believe me? have you seen any unicorns lately? joking aside (even though the first part is totally true, just look it up), if you want to check the other things that redbubble sent me to celebrate the upcoming valentine's day (insert sad music), you can check this link rdbl.co/elizabethsagan-v19 (it's also in my bio if you find it easier) and you can use code v19-elizabeth for 15% off your entire redbubble order, good from january 15th to march 29th. feel free to check the rest of their stuff too, as they collaborate with artist from around the world to create all kinds of nerdy, weird, geeky and fandomish stuff.

On a scale from 1 to 10, how f***ed would you be if you'd suddenly wake up inside the book that you're reading?
📚
i wanted to post for the past 2 days, but i went out on friday (which always comes as a surprise for me) and on saturday i had a 4.5 hours long phone conversation that got me out of a bad mood. i still have no laptop :)) and i'm halfway through the eye of the world and i realise this is not sustainable. i have to read something else between the wot books or else i'll get tired of it, not because it's not good (it is), but because at this pace i'll finish the series in june and won't read anything else for the first half of 2019.
📚
anyway, i'm super unproductive lately and it's killing me. gotta go back on the track. and i failed giving up coffee (again), because i can't. i was feeling terrible and i wasn't productive!
📚
meanwhile, we got the second snow of the year. and i wonder if it's because i had this pic ready.

What the best book/series that you've read? the absolute best.
📚
so you know i'm reading wheel of time. i don't love it. i respect it. i respect and admire the fact that rj didn't give an eff when he wrote it. do you know how it feels? it feels like a retired old man with nothing else to do but a story to tell sat down at his desk one day and started to write what has probably been on his mind for the past 30 years. did he give an eff if the story started too slowly and the readers might get bored? no. he wrote as if he never planned to publish it, as if he was free of all the fear that comes with writing a book, because it feels like he wrote it for himself. he took his time to show us everything. and it feels great. it's really, really great. it's not my jam, not anymore, but it's great.

What's something that you're proud of doing?
📚
so yesterday i was asked what i'm proud of doing and i said i'm proud that i learned to love and accept myself. well, another thing that i'm proud of is being part of the @savedbythepage anthology by @jdnetto, an anthology created by readers like you and me who wrote about how they were "saved" by books. well, after reading the book i must honestly say that i was ashamed of my little story. compared to other stories that i've read, mine was unworthy, dull and dry. there were some personal stories that truly shocked me. but even so, i'm proud i had my part in it. so, well, read it, but don't read it for my story 😅 there are way better stories out there.
📚
but to summarise, i talked about how i forced myself not to read fiction anymore, because i was told it's useless. and i tried to convince myself i was going to read "serious" books, but i never did. so for a few years i basically stopped reading. how s****d is that?! and then james and i met in college and i finally started reading again because of him. he made me read percy jackson. and then some other books. thanks m... damn, sarah j. maas, how can i use the word "mate" now???

What's your first read in 2019?
📚
eeeh, happy new year and all that! my first read of this year will be the wheel of time series. i've read the first 3 books many many years ago. i dnfed the 4th one because i was dealing with a huge reading slump and because my copy of the book was off-putting: the quality of the pages s****d and the spine was rock hard (when you have a 1000 pages book that's not good). i pondered whether i should start with the 4th one or re-read (you know i don't like re-reading) and chose the latter. now i'm 150 pages into eye of the world and i'm loving it (kinda - we'll speak about this later)! i love when an author takes his time with the worldbuilding. for me, that speaks passion. it feels as if he isn't writing for the readers, but for himself, as if the world could end and he would still write because this is what his soul seeks. and since i barely remember what happens, it doesn't feel like a re-read either. i also like the writing style - it's different, it forces you to pay attention.
📚
my only problem? i'm not a high-fantasy geek anymore, at least not of this kind of tolkien-esque setting. i still love it, but it's not the same as it could have been years ago.
📚
i'll read wot as fast as possible and one after the other to avoid losing my interest. january and february are all booked :))

What's the best book that you've read in 2018?
📚
last post this year, cause i don't think i'll post tomorrow. and yes, i plan to read wheel of time next year 😅 these days have been a blur and i'm feeling weirdly agitated and nervous, as if i forgot to do or think about something. a bit anxious. i don't feel like i'm carpe dieming enough and i feel the moments slipping through my fingers. weird, i know. i feel like i'm not ready or prepared, so i can't come with a worthy last caption. but it's ok. it's not like it's that important. i hope you have fun and i hope you're enjoying yourself and reading good books and all. see you in 2019 🤗

Tell me something about yourself.
📚
i wish your lives to be filled with choices that are just as relevant and have just as many repercussions as when i pondered whether i should post this pic simple or make it move. sometimes i like to take a step back and enjoy the beauty of the small choices, the butterflies that don't create hurricanes on the other side of the planet (or so i hope, lol), like choosing between the two colours of a shirt, not between two colleges. but that's... that's not good either, right? if it's not hard to get, it's not worth it. i wish it could be different, but it rarely is. change never comes without pain, and there are some kinds of pain that you should welcome in your life - the pain of shedding your old skin, of stepping out of your comfort zone, of doing what you have to do in spite of your anxiety and fear. those kinds of pain make you better.

What are some of the things that you are planning to do in 2019?
📚
i plan to solve my effing skin problems. you can't see it in any of my pics because i'm editing it out (and i'm not ashamed to admit it, come on), but your 23 years old girl still has acne and has had it for a very long time (6th grade). there have been good and bad times (the good times were linked to intense sport and healthy eating), but lately it's been pretty bad. so i started a long term treatment that means 3 pills and 3 creams per day and i also plan to go back to gym, even though i'm not sure how to deal with the last one because i'm constantly in and out of the city. but i'll see to it.
📚
this end of the year feels very short. christmas came and went and there are only a few days left till 2018 is gone. tomorrow i'll have to start taking the new batch of pics. i should have started it today but i simply didn't want to. it's too good to stay in bed and read. i'm a bit behind keeping track of my read on goodreads and here, but tomorrow or the day after tomorrow i'll do a reading update.

How are you going to spend your christmas/holidays/this time of the year?
📚
we are preparing for christmas here and it feels good. we'll have to start taking new pics soon, probably right after christmas, but for now we're reading and reading and reading and i'm feeling happy and blessed and just grateful and humble.
📚
on another note, yesterday was dec 22nd, which is an important day for me. something great happened on dec 22nd 2013 and something great happened on dec 22nd 2014 and because i like to fill my life with hidden meanings and i like to create traditions, i started to think that something great will happen on dec 22nd every year... even though 2015, 2016 and 2017 proved that to be wrong :)) but even so, i hoped. i am actually waiting for something and i thought that yesterday was the perfect time. it didn't happen :)) but oh well, i'm still waiting. don't be like me :)) it's ridiculous to expect something good on a certain day of the year just because.

What are you currently reading?
📚
i'm reading stolen by @sm.yairlevyauthor - i should finish it tomorrow. it's a nice paranormal fantasy, something that feels like cassandra clare's books... is it weird that i'm saying that it feels like cc's books even though i've only read city of bones. i mean, it's with demons, vampires... for me they are in the same category. anyway, i also started clockwork angel - just a few pages. if i'm reading 3 more books till the end of the year i'm gonna be happy.
