IM DYING, OH MY GOD. ONLY SARAH WOULD WRITE THIS.

Let’s be reasonable and add an eighth day to the week that is devoted exclusively to reading.

What did Sarah Rees Brennan tell you about Nick and Mae, if you don't mind me asking?
Anonymous

AVERT YOUR EYES IF YOU HAVENT READ THE SERIES/LAST BOOK SINCE I CANT DO READ MORES ON MOBILE.

She said Nick and Mae break up in the future. Mae finds that now she’s in college and is exploring the world (and people) she finds that there’s more than just Nick. And of course Nick doesn’t understand being broken up with so he keep showing up on dates and being kind of a stalker.

And the I freaked and Sarah said something along the lines of her probably taking him back because she does like him, and he’s the only guy that Jamie has ever liked. If you remind me in like three hours, I’ll post what she wrote in my book haha

What are your thoughts on the recent Mara Dyer white-washing fancasts, she's not white, thing going on in the fandom recently?
Anonymous

Oh, god. It’s not the first, nor will it be the last time it’s happened.

Some people feel it’s white-washing and fine whatever, you can have your opinion. But as to go as far as to say that the fandom itself is racist because some people are fan-casting just as was described in the book is the stupidest thing ever.

There’s this really cool thing called genetics/biology that DOES make it possible for Mara to be white and having her brothers be darker than her.

And another thing, we don’t know she’s exactly white. There are white Indians, Hispanics, etc., etc. By Michelle saying Mara is white or “she paled at blah blah” doesn’t mean she’s Snow White colored. I’m Hispanic, my dad is pretty dark, my mom was dark (she’s pretty light skinned now) and I get passed off as white. Michelle has left it like that for a reason. And white-washing is more than just skin. It’s heritage too. We know Mara isn’t obviously in complete tune with her Indian side, but she has some knowledge and such about it.

Also, Kaya is portuguese. There’s a lot more to say on the subject but yeah.

                          How l o n g did you r e s i s t?

Did you push her away? Did you tell her she meant no more to you than any other animal? Oh, Raffe, did she die thinking you didn’t c a r e about her?

               How tragic. That must just tear you to pieces.

Are there any parts of the predecessor to The Raven Cycle that you wrote when you were 19 that are still included in The Raven Cycle today? Do you think your 19 year old self would recognize the series in its current form? Asked by decemberequestrian

Sometimes when I’m alone, I take the pearl from where it lives in my pocket and try to remember the boy with the bread, the strong arms that warded off nightmares on the train, the kisses in the arena.
