"[Parents should] recommend some books with female leads that your son would enjoy reading. If your next question is “Why?,” then ask your daughter why she liked Harry Potter. She might say it was a good story, great characters, and a fantastic world. Who cares if the main character was a boy? In fact, girls will pick up a book with a hero or heroine equally. According to my excellent librarian resources, boys will actively avoid books with a girl as the main character. What’s the problem? I have no idea. Why should you encourage your son to read books with heroines? That’s easy. You want your son to grow up knowing that a strong female for a friend, wife or boss is normal and good."
i tried to make the writing formal looking but it just ended up looking like harry potter font :/ (i promise i will now get around to uploading the frank and hazel ones at some point)
quick sketch of annabeth chase, i'm in the process of colouring this right now but i thought i would just upload the sketch cause i quite like it, though it doesn't really look much like how i imagine her but whatever
slowly working my way through all the main seven it seems (already done frank and hazel which i still need to upload here and i promise i will right after i post the coloured version of this), not really something i was intending to do but IT. JUST. KEEPS. HAPPENING.
so one time we had a reliever that likes Jodi Picolt books as much as melanie does
if you want to see more of these comics i just spent forever working on the tags so they should all be under “brenna and melanie comics” “melanie and brenna comics” and “comics” on my blog but to see all of them i think you have to type in one of those tags and then click the tag you want to go to under the comic so that all of them show up so there should be about 4 pages at the moment
my books are really confusing so im really not sure half the time
anyway, about the bahr sket bolah thing, that was the name that was on the sheet for a math exercise and Mel and i found it really funny (we picked him in the exercise because he had the coolest name) but as Melanie so cleverly pointed out, if sket is his middle name then when hes getting announced for (basketball) games then he would just be “bahr bolah” :/
Once upon a time Percy had a sneaking suspicion, little did he know He was not going to be able to do something he was looking forward to
book day expectations and reality
lol but he would never even sit that close to me
okay so i drew this a while ago because on the last week of term my school had a book character dress up day (and naturally nobody dressed up because nobody at my school reads) but i dressed up as katniss, because irony
and because i felt like it he wasn’t even there anyway so not even the reality was reality lol
*im katniss and i know it*
