Reading #allouryesterdays and, ummmm. That’s not how you spell fourteen…. Seriously questioned myself for a minute. And not like this is an ARC. I bought the hardcover. Whoops.

Yeeeeeah. For the record, I DO know how to spell “fourteen” correctly, this is just one of those weird random errors that sometimes sneaks into a book!

What was particularly funny to me about this to me is that a) it’s a young adult novel so it’s “for teen” and b) I deliberately worked the number four into the novel anywhere I could as a little nod to the fourth dimension, aka time.

And, you know, it’s a typo that is LITERALLY GIGANTIC because it’s in like sixty point font.

There’s actually a second error related to the number four, although it’s much subtler. Has anyone spotted it yet??

Wasn’t blaming you, Cristin! Straaaange things happen - I always get surprised when I see errors in finished copies! Somehow no one caught that.

Also yes! The four on the clock? There are arguments for both sides — I guess the most commonly know way is IV but in some ways IIII is okay too? (Especially for clocks??)

Oh I know you weren’t blaming me! My understanding is they decided to change the font of the title headings right before it went to print and after all the proofreading had been done, and that’s when the error was introduced.

And yes! The other error I was talking about was the number four being written as “IIII” instead of “IV” in the clock on the cover and spine. But I didn’t know IIII is an accepted alternative for clock faces! So maybe not an error after all. :)

I didn’t know it was either!! All I knew was IV and someone told me about the details behind “IIII” and I learned something new! :)

Every reader’s thought: “Only 100 pages left! I’m soooo close to finishing!” And then you slowly realize exactly how long it takes to finish 100 pages.

And yet you do it every time you’re about to finish a book.

Harshaw (and “Oncat”), my favorite Inferi from Leigh Bardugo's Ruin and Rising.  I had to guess at his eye color a bit.

Nilah didn’t get her booked signed at the launch party, so we be going until the Fierce Reads Block Party!

Can’t stop. Won’t stop.  Gonna be a Grisha week.

HARSHAW!!! First Harshaw and Oncat fanart. Oh I love this so so so much!!!

OMG I had such a blast reading about Harshaw and Oncat! I just loved them.

We can’t read this but we’re assuming it’s funny and true.

Hey this is true! I only needed glasses because I held books too close to my face 😮

Can you imagine Harry trying to parent his children and tell them they need to settle down but then James Sirius just pulls out his edition of Harry James Potter: A History and goes, “When you were my age you followed an alleged mass murderer into a tunnel, faced a werewolf and nearly got killed by dementors. I think I can go to The Bent-Winged Snitches concert.”

This is a brilliant idea

… THIS IS THE BEST THING. I NEED THIS DONE NOW! ALRIGHT, PUBLISHERS, COME TAKE ALL MY BOOKS AWAY AND FIX THEM! MAKE THEM SO I CAN DO THAT!
