The Fault in Our Stars ✨// book review

Hello everybody!!! I should really find a name for you guys. Any suggestions?

I recently read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, and I LOVED it. πŸ’• It was great at the start, and then it ripped my heart out and stomped on it at the end. πŸ₯² Overall, it has moved up to my favourite books rank lol does that sentence make sense?

Okay, so my short rant aside, lets get into the actual book review lol (spoiler free yayyy)


⭐ Cover ⭐

Title ~ The Fault In Our Stars

Author ~ John Green

Pages ~ 313

⭐ Synopsis ⭐

“Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.” – Goodreads

⭐ Characters ⭐

I LOVED (how many times am i going to say loved in caps lol) Hazel and Augustus were so fun and unique! It was really fun to see how they developed and changed.

⭐ Plot ⭐

The plot was really cool! It surprised me and it was great! Haha im sorry i dont really know what to say here πŸ™ƒ

“iT suRpRiSed mE aNd iT waS gReAt” what am i writing πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

⭐ Rating ⭐

I give this —–> ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ five stars!!!

It’s a really good book, about life, death and love πŸ’•


Okay, that’s it for now ❀ see you guys later! πŸ‘‹

Lol why is this review so shortt πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

Hii peopleee, today I’ll be… doing stuff (no, seriously I’ve procrastinated, it’s 7pm on thursday as i write this and it’s due tomorrow at 8am, and I barely know what I’m doing for this post lol πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ)

*ahem lets start again* Today I will be posting some pretty wallpapers, but its ✨p e r c y j a c k s o n✨ themed wallpapers. Yes I’m doing themed wallpapers again its fun lol

If you prefer harry potter ahah, sorry, check out that wallpaper post here

Little storytime, this was my home and lock screen for a while until i changed it, because the time was exactly where the ‘bob’ was and i couldnt read it πŸ˜‚ (also, you wont really understand this unless you’ve read house of hades from the heroes olympus series :,))

Credits, also this is a mild spoiler for Battle of the Labyrinth πŸ˜…

Okay, that’s all! This post was really fun to make, and I might even use some of these wallpapers πŸ™‚

Bye byeeee πŸ‘‹β€οΈ

1 Year Blogversary!!!!!

Hiiiii everyoneeee and welcome to my 1 year blogversaryyyyyy

is it blogversary or blogisversary?

Im so excitedddd πŸ€©πŸ’•

I can’t believe that I’ve actually been blogging for a year! yo maya remember that time when you abandoned blogging for like six months  shut up maya

I dont actually have a very clear plan of what I’m doing, but I was thinking that I could look back on posts i made and milestones i reached, so lets start ^^

very abrupt lol

~First post~

In the middle of COVID-19, I had a completely random idea to start a harry potter blog, and literally the second I created a blog on WordPress, I started typing a post called ‘Harry Potter Music to Keep you Studying, Sleeping, Drawing and Relaxing‘, where I talked about a youtube channel called Ambient Worlds and tried to sound sophisticated and like an adult πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

I guess it wasn’t that bad of a post, but compared to THIS post, I think I’ve definitely improved πŸ˜…

~First collab~

I’ve just spent a while reading some of my posts also trying to find a post to stop on and I found my first collab, which was with Maggie. It was really fun, although when Maggie introduced me to Canva, I made some… interesting designs, here’s my first sign off:

It’s… questionable? i hate it

heh

~50 followers~

When I got 50 followers, I decided to make an ‘assumptions about me’ post, and it was really fun to do! I didn’t expect to get so many assumptions!

And now I’ve just been looking at some assumptions I answered, and I read one that said: ‘you dislike star wars’ and I said that I’ve never watched it but i doubt theres any thing better than harry potter COUGH COUGH WELL MAYA I SEE YOU CLEARLY HAVENT READ PERCY JACKSON EIERBKVHERBNKELRB

*gaaasp* I found some wise adviceeeee in my posttt

If in doubt, consult Google.

Maya, 2021

actually you were pottahwand then  STOP INTERUPTINg ME  no

~100 followers//name reveal~

yayyy this was a fun but incredibly cringy postttt

i think thats literally the post summed up

*drops mic*

~*insert a bunch of random posts*~

*fast forward to this post*

Okay, that’s it for now!

See you next week!:)

New sign off, I really like it ^^

Edit: okay so i got a notification from wordpress that today (8th February) is my blogversary so \_(^^)_/

What Would My PJO Life Be Like? πŸ”±

Hellooooo peopleeee

Today I’ll be using this spinny wheel the correct term is picker wheel, maya to find out what my Percy Jackson life would be like πŸ˜„

I actually did this in December (but i wrote it in my notes) because I saw this youtube video by Unclaimed demigod where she used this picker wheel to find out what her life would be like in the pjo universe, so I’ll just be sharing what I got that time and I’ll be reacting to it, because I just wrote my answer down in notes πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

2. Who would do my tour?

I’m sorry for just deserting you all for *checks calendar* sIx mONtHs?!

I just didn’t feel like blogging anymore, but now I’m back!

I won’t be posting as often, I’m thinking once every 2 weeks? I might also add in some extra posts from time to time ^^

I think I’ll also be changing my blog name to something Percy Jackson related, because I AM NOW OFFICIALLY OBSESSEDDDDDD (reading magnus chase and the hammer of thor now) and I’m not a huge potterhead anymore :,(

That’s all from me, guys, see you soon!

Drawing Fanart for My Fandoms! Part 1: Harry Potter ⚑️

*steps in dramatically*

hello humans im back

and im joined with a late post

(: ahaha yes that’s what im going with

and yes i have no clue what i mean i havent been blogging for a few days okay

Today I’ve copied been inspired by Rayna (check out her amazing post!) to give my fandoms the love they deserve, aaaand to practise my drawing skills! πŸ‘

So, leeeet’s start! ^^


I think this was back in… March? I’d finally found an art style that I liked, and suited me! I’m actually pretty proud of this, except the fact that:

  • What has happened to Sirius
  • What has happened to Ron
  • Why can’t I see Dumbledore’s face MAYA WHAT DID YOU DO YOU SCRIBBLED ON HIS FACE YOU DONT DO THAT TO POWERFUL WIZARDS-
  • You can’t read what it says on the sign I drew for Peter (it says ** spoiler alert for prisoner of azkaban ** ‘no traitors allowed – talking to you, Peter’ by the way (: )
  • Whats-the-point-of-saying-its-order-of-the-phoenix-when-it-has-loads-of-other-characters
  • Why have Fred and George merged together WHY

*cough* I still really like it though!

This is one of my least favourite ones because it took SO. LONG. TO. DRAW. I kept on erasing and reerasing sound the alarm maya has created a word andddddd I finally found a way to give Harry glasses and not completely ruin his lOoK so that’s good? πŸ™ƒπŸ‘Ž i dont know if those emojis mean that its good or bad please help me out here πŸ˜‚ And, the small chibi ( i think-) versions of Harry aren’t too bad, but the one below has eyes that are a bit crooked, buuuut I don’t really mind ^^

I like Hermione more than Harry, since I feel like she turned out better, and the small chibi-version-things look better, too. (: I really like the chibi Hermione holding a book, since that’s what I was originally going to draw, buuuut my memory failed me, so I had to make do with a smaller-book-holding-Hermione-picture-thing. *cough*

Surprise surprise, I got fed up of drawing big (nearly) full body versions of characters, so I crammed a few more onto one page. I’m really sorry but I will be doing a part 2 of harry potter, and THEN I’ll do the *cough* other fandom I was meant to do next. *cough* maya are you talking about the drawing or not

I don’t LOVE this, but it’s okay. If I could, I’d probably redo this whole thing buuut what’s in the past is in the past :,) I’ve drawn Ron in his Weasley Christmas jumper, and at first I accidentally gave him a ‘W’ on the jumper so when I noticed I was happy. :))))))) “I don’t like that sentence but I’ll leave it in anyway” – Maya, 2021

Hereeee’s Lunaaaa in her Spectrespecs I didn’t have a reference I’m very sorry and, to be honest, I’m actually quite proud! I really like her hair, since it was my first time doing… whatever that style of drawing hair is called πŸ˜‚ I drew some pretty flower-butterfly thingies on her shirt, andddd yeah! ^^

Heressss Snapeeeee with a not-very-hooked-nose :))) i wonder why

I don’t really have much to say about him, apart from the fact that MAYA THE ACTUAL LITERAL DRAWING IS NOT CENTRED HOW DARE YOU

Here’s Lily and some mysterious person in the top right that’s identity you’ll find out in a second. (:

Lily doesn’t look amazing, buut I like the hair :)(: I just wish her eyes were a bit further apart from each other, and MAYA DRAW HER A NOSE THAT PEOPLE CAN SEEEEEEEE

look, there’s Ron and Luna and Sirius lurking in the corners, and the first marauder, Mr James Potter!

I had the same glasses problem with James as I did with Harry that doesnt make senseeee except I just moved onto the next one and didn’t worry about how strange the eyes look. *cough*

Tadaaaaa that was the mystery man above Lilyyyyyy *jazz handsss* πŸ™Œ

Sirius is actually my favorite drawing so far, his hair came out * p e r f e c t * and he has an amazing expression, so I’m happy :))))

I like how Remus’s hair turned out, but I think I went a bit overboard with the scars, so now he doesn’t look like Remus 😦

small spoiler alert to anyone who hasn’t read the prisoner of azkaban, Remus is a werewolf :)))


Andddd, people, it’s done! This post is * f i n a l l y * done! I’m very sorry for posting it VERY late, I don’t know how it happened. πŸ˜…

Bye for now! ^^ ❀

Hogwarts Pals! ~ The Crup

Pacing across the room, Gryffindor told himself, more than the others, determinedly,

“We’re going to go somewhere.”

“Forget about it,” said a person concealed behind a large book, “it’s raining, there’s no way we’re going out there.”

“You mean, there’s no way you’re going out there.” muttered Slytherin under his breath, smiling. Everybody went silent for a while, and all anyone could hear were the footsteps of Gryffindor and the soft pitter-pattering of the rain outside.

“Hey…” cried Hufflepuff excitedly, who had been staring out of the window, “I think I can see something! Guys, come here!” Slytherin and Gryffindor Apparated there immediately – Hufflepuff had a good eye; this was gonna be interesting. Ravenclaw, however, stubbornly remained in her seat and continued reading.

“Aww, come on Raven… please?” Hufflepuff whined.

“I… I think there’s a kitten out there!” Slytherin added quickly. Ravenclaw looked up from her book. She had a soft spot for cats.

“Fine,” she groaned (Hufflepuff yelled, ‘YAY!’), “let me see.” she added, with a stern look at everyone. She trudged away from the comfortable chair and tempting book, and Apparated to the windowsill.

“Hmm… there definitely is something out there. But, Hufflepuff, are you sure it isn’t a- a plastic bag or something?” she spluttered. Hufflepuff’s face shone with tears.

“B-but what if it is an animal? It’ll be freezing cold, and it might die without our help! Right, Gryffindor, Slytherin?”

“Of course! Don’t worry, I’ll go and check it out!” Gryffindor told them reassuringly.

“You idiot, it’s pouring cats and dogs out there! You stay outside for ten seconds, and see how wet you are,” Slytherin replied scathingly, “but if you really want to…”

“I do. And, anyways, Ravenclaw’s learned nearly all the spells in that book of her’s! She can dry me off! Won’t you?” Gryffindor added with a meaningful look at Ravenclaw.

With a flattered sigh, she replied, “Fine..

A puff of smoke appeared where Gryffindor was standing, and a figure appeared outside the house. He had Disapparated. The figure moved closer to a small creature, picked it up, and cradled it. It seemed to be a miracle that the creature recieved any warmth from him at all – the rain was lashing out now, buckets of water seemed to be pouring down on them.

“I- I’m back,” a shivering Gryffindor told them a few moments later, “we saw a Crup. there he is, see?” a small, bundle of damp fur was laying in front of the fire, feebly stirring. “He was unconcious when I found him, but he’ll be okay. Some love, care, and… guys, I think we should keep him for now..?”

Hufflepuff’s immediate response was ‘YES!’, and she started to repeatedly ask Slytherin if he’d agree.

“Sly, please, he’s so cute!!!”

“I’ll have a think about it.”

“Please, pretty please, I’ll take him out every day, I promise!”

“I SAID I’D THINK ABOUT IT!” yet the smile on his face was enough to tell that he was all for it. Ravenclaw, however, was lost in thought, stationary.

“Well,” she began, “we could, technically take him in. But… he might not be ours. Also, we have to have his tail removed, or the Muggles will start asking questions.”

“So… yes?” whispered Hufflepuff, red in the face with excitment.

“Not yes, not maybe. We’ll start putting up posters in Diagon Alley, but for the meantime, we can keep him, until the owners- I mean, unless he’s someone’s pet.” Ravenclaw added hastily.

“YAY!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH, RAVEN!!!” Hufflepuff hugged her tightly, and then hugged everybody else- she didn’t want to leave anyone out.


The next morning came suddenly, and the garden showed no sign of being tossed around repeatedly in the rain throughout the night. Everyone was awoken by the combined loud barks of the Crup and the yells of Hufflepuff.

“WAKE UP EVERYONE! RISE AND SHINE!!!”

All three friends Apparated to the kitchen, where Hufflepuff was playing with the Crup.

“Meet Philip!” she squeaked with excitement.

Philip? You really couldn’t think of anything better than- OI!” Gryffindor had clapped his hand over Slytherin’s mouth.

“Shut up!” he hissed, “Anyway,” he said a little loudly, “who’s gonna remove Philip’s tail?”

“I can.” Ravenclaw said coolly, “Let’s see… Diffindo!” she waved her wand in the air and the Crup’s forked tail was gone- instead he looked like a normal, Jack Russel terrier.


Heyyyyy people!!!!!

Sooo, baaaaaaasically, yay I think I found a substitute for aaaaaaaanyways I wrote this a while ago, and I had this * v i s i o n * that I’d make this * s e r i e s * that was * r e a l l y c o o l * yeah right

Uhm, long story short, I didn’t really like it after reading it, so I just abandoned it there in my drafts πŸ˜›

Absolute * a g e s * later, I thought that since I didn’t have any motivation to write a post, then why not just write an easy short afterthought thingymajig, and then * v o i l a ! * I wouldn’t have to work too hard! sorry for being lazy heh heh

I dunno, I’ve just been pret-tty unmotivated and I’ve just not really been into blogging. 😦

Buuut I feel a lot better now!

or maybe its just my mood-

I think I just need a break πŸ˜…

Sooo, I’ll be taking a posting break next week! ^^

I’ll still be active with replying to comments and reading posts, but I won’t post.

It’ll only be for a week, though, so… dOn’T mISs mE πŸ˜©πŸ’… yeah right hEH

Also, I won’t be able to reply to comments or read any posts today or on the weekend, because I’m bUsY *cough i mentioned it near the end of my wrap up post heh*

*im so excited but so nervous but so scared what-*

Anyways, I hope you dont mind me just c a s u a l l y ending this post really randomly 😏

I LOVE Y’ALL SO MUCHH AHHHHHHH YOU GUYS ARE SO AMAZINGGGG THANK YOU FOR SO MUCHHHH AHHHHHHHHHH

Ohh, also, a crup is a dog that looks like a Jack Russel terrier except for it’s two tails, that’s why Ravenclaw had to cut it off with a (painless) severing charm :] (so any muggles wouldnt notice) πŸ˜‰
