Worlds Beneath Blog Tour (Book Review)

TBR_packshot_01

Today I’m reviewing The Blood Race by K. A. Emmons… And wowww the cover.  This is how you make indie covers.  

It’s a work of art.

And the second one…. It got even better.  How??? Tell me your secrets.

I’m reviewing the first one for this blog tour, though the tour is for the World’s Beneath, the second book in the series. Continue reading

Popular Books That I Did Not Like (Rant)

This was a fun post to write.

I’m a picky reader.  It’s very rare that I will love a book with all my heart and soul.  Most books I read are just “eh.”  And that’s okay, everyone has a few books that are just eh to them.  The trouble is when a book that is just eh to you, is glorious, amazing, fireworks-popping-out of the page, the emperor-comes-to-visit-you-himself-wonderful to the rest of the reading world.

No one understands, and they think you’re insane for not liking the greatest literary masterpiece since Beowulf.

It’s tough.

So, I’m going to rant about all the popular books that I did not like, in the hopes that someone else will be like me, or in the event that this is just hilarious to you that someone could hate these books.  (Nobody kill me.)

Also, I’ve tried to keep it spoiler free.  They may be *minor* spoilers, but nothing that would ruin the book.

Onward.

Writing Prompts

Back again with the writing prompts.  (I’ll never stop. There may not be any for a while, but eventually, they’ll come back when you least expect it.)

On my quest to come up with good story prompts, I ran across this story generator.  You just plug in numbers, nouns, adjectives, and names like MadLibs, and press “Write me a short story,” and poof, and there you have a story.  The link: plot-generator.org.uk/story/

There’s also this random story generator, where it fills the blanks with random words.  I highly recommend it for comedic purposes.

It can yield wonderful works of literary genius like this:

“Tommy gazed with the affection of 8708 callous blue badgers. He said, in hushed tones, “I love you and I want some more Facebook friends.”

Flora looked back, even more sneezy and still fingering the warped kettle. “Tommy, let’s get married,” she replied.

They looked at each other with stable feelings, like two dry, disgusted donkeys jumping at a very articulate dinner party, which had classical music playing in the background and two considerate uncles walking to the beat.”

I really couldn’t make that up, even if I tried.

I could make up these prompts, though they’re not quite as entertaining XD. Continue reading

beautifully me

At first writing this post was more of a therapy/outlet for me.  Then I thought: “Maybe I should post this.”  And I went back and forth between posting this and not.  But Tuesday rolled around and I didn’t have anything to post for Wednesday except this.  So here is a dump about me, and sort of about self love.  

I’ll have a normal post for next week.  I can’t keep spilling my soul on the inter-web XD.  I somehow thought it would be a good idea to post the drawings that I put along with each little blurb.  Please be nice to my bad art :P. Continue reading

random thoughts

 

random thoughts

Today we have a collection of my most random thoughts.  A lot of this is a conglomeration of my thoughts, other peoples thoughts, songs, idk, everything all mixed up with each other until I don’t know what is what.  So I don’t claim these as all my own, but I did think of them.

Dirt is made up of a lot of dead things, composed and buried for years and years.  Yet flowers still grow in it. Continue reading

Allegiance Blog Tour!

AllegianceBlogTour

I have the pleasure to take a part in the blog tour for Disowned, book one in the Allegiance series by Sarah Addison-Fox today!

I’ve been in a reading slump lately, and wasn’t expecting too much from the book, to be honest.  I started reading this book, and read. all. night.  Seriously, I was up way past midnight reading this. 

So I’m super excited to give you my review of the book 😀

First, here’s the details: Continue reading

The Cursed Queen (A Snow White Story)

cursed queenMy English teacher just discovered fanfiction.  Let’s just say that she was more than a little horrified.  My English teacher likes normal, traditional novels such as Pride and Prejudice and Anne of Green Gables.  So, we all got a rant about fanfiction.  The whole rant went something like this:

“Have you ever heard of a thing called fanfiction?”

Since most of us are nerds, we all said yes.  

“Do you know what it is?”

We all said yes.  

“Well it’s garbage.” 

To be fair, she was looking at Pride and Prejudice fanfics.  I would expect people who write p&p fanfics to be slightly more cultured, but it turns out that my dear English teacher was horrified that anyone could take a perfectly good story with perfectly good characters and a perfectly good plot and change it.   Continue reading

My Biggest Pet Peeves in Romance

 

biggest pet peeves in romance.PNG

Alrighty.  Those of you who know me in real life know that I’m not a hopeless romantic.  I’m not a anti-love person, I just have a lot of problems with the way it’s presented in media.  This post isn’t going to focus on that as much as the cliches I see over and over in books.  

This post could go on and on, but I’m going to focus on a few main areas.  The “Insert Love Interest So Readers will Read My Book” trend, and the “Love at First Sight,” and “Damsel In Distress” cliches. Continue reading
