fun fact: the reason that the plural of goose is geese but the plural of moose is not meese is because goose derives from an ancient germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of foot/feet and tooth/teeth, wherein oo is mutated to ee. however ‘moose’ is a native american word added to the english lexicon only ~400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way.
Oh baby. Keep talking dirty to me.
i’m just saying, if wizarding pictures and portraits are basically sentient, just think how much the posters in teenagers bedrooms have seen.
Now this is a tough one. I read so damn much.
The one series i do read once a year without fail is the Old Kingdom trilogy by Garth Nix (Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen). I still think they’re some of the best books i will ever read. They’re an amazing experience every time and they changed me.
Yes i get deep and meaningful about books.
Harry Potter, of course, has defined my life. I love Stephen Hunt’s books, especially Court of the Air. Anything by Alastair Reynolds, Jasper Fforde, Douglas Adams or Neil Gaiman. I’m probably missing a lot more, but these guys really shaped the way i think.
And Diana Wynne Jones will always be the queen of my heart. Everyone read everything she ever wrote. Everything.
