I'm Avery. I write. I sing. I am colorful and critical and exhaustive and young. I love things that glitter, things full of ink, things made of rust, things with beating hearts, things that dream. I love being us.

Best Book To Film Adaptation
The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
If I could be any character I'd be (and why?)
Perhaps Tally Youngblood from the Uglies series, based solely on the fact that I adore the world that Scott Westerfeld created for her. Actually, also because of Zane. I freaking loved Zane.
If I was stranded on a desert island and could only bring 3 books, I'd bring
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, I could spend an eternity pouring over all of the metaphors and images in that book.
City of Glass, in my opinion, the most beautifully done Mortal Instruments.
Alice in Wonderland. It never gets old.
