Re: Similarities Between Stories

I finished reading Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll and realized once again how much I love this book. The way ome thinks as a child is often lost among adulthood and this book really helps me get in touch with that again. All of the puns and riddles and poems in the book are mind b...

Re: Atypical Protagonists

I finished another children's book with an animal protagonist called Call of the Wild by Jack London. This is such a beautiful book however it was very difficult for me to read because it has a lot of cruelty towards animals in it. Some parts actually reminded me of other things, and I kept thinking...

Re: Atypical Protagonists

I recently finished The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame which is a lovely children's book following four animal characters, Mole, Rat, Badger and Toad. While humans are mentioned in the book, they play a smaller role with the exception of Toad's adventure. The book starts with introducing the...

Re: Giving a book another chance

I finished the next book in the series Awakened and while I did give it three stars, I went back and forth with it. The plot seemed a little better, but there was still a lot of "oh no...not this again" going on for me. However I think I liked this book a lot more because of the message it sends thr...

Re: June Wordcrawl: Quidditch World Cup

My hand was grabbed and we were racing through the crowd. I held on for dear life as my feet tried to drag behind me but were forced to continuously move forward. Whatever was going on in my sister's mind was beyond comprehension for me, but she had to go. I feel myself trip over the feet of someone...

Re: Music to Write To

I think it depends on what I'm writing. Music can definitely get me into the mood of a piece. If I'm writing an action scene, I like to listen to more alternative rock or even something along the lines of Rammstein which is a heavy metal band from Germany. If I'm writing something a little more fant...

The talking never ceased. No matter what I did, he kept rambling, and I kept smiling while searching for an exit. This was going nowhere. Suddenly, I found my chance. My best friend was coming through the door, and she met my eyes. With a simple blink that meant, "I'm in trouble, come save me," she ...

No matter what I did, the boys kept coming. I was getting tired of flirting as cute as it was at first. Now it was getting frustrating. All fighting for my attention when I wasn't interested in them and they didn't really know what they wanted anyway. I made a decision. It was time to cut my hair an...
