Re: September Prompt: New Beginnings

It is with much eagerness that I begin this new school year. Not only am I a brand new Prefect, but also the latest moderator of the Book Club. It would be a falsehood to say that I wasn't a little bit nervous about it all. Already, it's proving to be a lot more work than last term when I was just a...

Re: Difficult Books

As a lover of fantasy, I should be ashamed, but I simply cannot finish Lord of the Rings. I've tried several times, and can only manage a chapter or two before I'm bored to tears and banging my head in frustration.

Crossing Between Genres

Certain authors are well-known for the genre in which they write. Take Stephen King, for example. The name is synonymous with Horror. The same could be said with J.R.R. Tolkien and Fantasy or H.G. Wells with Science Fiction. That being said... Which authors (not limited to the above, of course) do y...

I am sitting here with tears in my eyes. Polaris was a truly special person, and I will cherish forever the conversations that we had. She always made you feel a little better, even when you were at your worst. She will be greatly missed.
