Paper Cranes & Butterflies

Current Mood: Pensive
Current Weetzie Read(s): Stargirl & Prozac Nation

Have become obsessed with origami.

Pink & white lotus blossoms on every table.
Multi-colored cranes hanging from the ceiling.
Patterned butterflies arching through hallway, tacked like beautiful experiments of spring .

The two books I'm currently reading reflect my two different (consistent) moods.
Prozac Nation. Wild. Uncontrollable. Desperate. Insatiably chaotic.
Stargirl. Light. Airy. Bizarre. Ethereal. 
The two switch, endlessly, battling for the chance to win over my quiet, empty life.

"She was the faintest scent of a cactus flower, the flitting shadow of an elf owl. We did not know what to make of her.
In our minds we tried to pin her to a corkboard like a butterfly, but the pin merely went through and away she flew." Stargirl


  1. The sequel to Stargirl is even better!

    (Also you might like Skellig and its prequel Mina--along the same lines, but middle grade and Mina never goes to school.)

  2. I requested it after I saw you mention the writer, and was so ecstatic when it came through BookMooch! Will definitely check out the others. <3
