Three things about me

  1. I love to cross stitch. I currently have 5 projects on the go, and they are all huge lol
  2. I am a Slytherin, and would have been neutral in the war. Plus Snape is like my favorite character, and nothing you can say will change my mind. (Also I consider Harry a Slytherin lol) yes I walk on the dark side 😎
  3. I love to sing. I can get lost in my music and just feel free.

My answers to Anna’s questions

Who is your favorite author and why?

Has to be James Patterson. He is all I would read in high school. My goal is to read every single book he has published. It’s going to take forever since he’s still releasing books, but I will make a great effort.

If you could have only one type of food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Pasta. At every restaurant I go straight to the pasta section in the menu. Plus I love trying to make little pasta dishes myself. I think it’s because I love noodles.

What is a series that you would love to see a movie/tv series for?

I would have said The School for Good and Evil series, but that is already in the works according to the author. So my answer for this would be the Castor Chronicles (Beautiful Creatures is the first in this series). Now they already did a movie for it, and while it wasn’t bad, it wasn’t good either. They changed way too much and it didn’t feel the same at all. So I would rather see it as a tv show. With all that is going on in this series, it can definitely span a few seasons.

Do you have a favorite game (of any game type)?

I love board games. We would always have family game nights growing up, and they were always so much fun. Especially when we found new games to play. Now that I’m older, we don’t have as many game nights so my focused has shifted to 1,000 piece puzzles.

If you could have any animal (real or imagined) as a well-cared for pet/friend, what would it be?

For a real one, I would go with a monkey. They have always been my favorite animal and are just so cute!! For imagined, I would like a kneazle. They just seem like super smart animals and would make a great friend.

My favorite post

One of my favorite post that I’ve done has to be my Splintered series review. I love this series so much!

    Hey there everyone! Today is a WWW Wednesday post day, hosted by Taking on a World Of Words. The three W’s are: What are you currently reading? What have you recently finished? What do you plan on reading next? Let’s get started.

    What are you currently reading?

    What have you recently finished?

    What do you plan on reading next?

    First Line Fridays 12/13/19

    Hey everyone! I’m back with my third First Line Fridays, hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author, or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

    • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page.
    • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first!
  • Finally…..reveal the book.
  • The problem with stealing other people’s memories is that you start to lose the difference between what’s theirs and what’s yours. Luckily, I know how to exploit that-as long as the teachers don’t find out, anyway.

    This book is….

    Arden sells memories. Whether it’s becoming homecoming queen or studying for that all-important test, Arden can hack into a classmate’s memories and upload the experience for them just as if they lived it themselves. Business is great, until the day Arden looks up and sees the boy crossing the schoolyard. The boy her friend assures her she’s known for years. The boy she can’t remember.

    Arden soon realizes that her own memories have been hacked, but they haven’t just been stolen and shared….They’ve been removed. And she’s not the only one. Sebastian, the boy whose existence was wiped from her mind, has lost all his memories. Together they must find the hacker to retrieve their missing memories. But how can they stop someone who had the power to make them forget everything they’ve learned?

    WWW WEDNESDAY 12/11/19

    Hello there!! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Life had become extremely stressful with work and health a little bit, so I needed a break to recharge. Plus I also such a slump in reading during that time so all bad. However I am now back! Reading is still kind of slow, but if I continue to break it into chunks I should be back reading fully in no time 😊

    Today’s post is another installment of WWW Wednesday hosted by Taking on a World Of Words. It ask the questions: What are you currently reading? What have you recently finished? What do you plan on reading next? Let’s get into it!

    What are you currently reading?

    If I stick to my plan, these should be done either today or tomorrow with a review up for We Set The Dark on Fire on either Friday or Saturday.

    What have you recently finished?

    My Splintered series reread is still going on. I finished Unhinged and now have two books left. I’m hoping I can get to them before the year is over. I also finished WWE Vol 1 just because I was feeling a graphic novel at that time. I haven’t finished a book since November 16.

    What do you plan to read next?

  • Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
  • In a continent on the edge of war, two witches hold its fate in their hands. Young witches Safiya and Iseult have a habit of finding trouble. After clashing with a powerful Guildmaster and his ruthless Bloodwitch bodyguard, the friends are forced to flee their home. Safi most avoid capture at all costs as she’s a rare Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lies. Many would kill for her magic, so Safi must keep hidden – lest she used in the struggle between empires. And Iseult’s true powers are hidden even from herself. In a chance encounter at Court, Safi meets Prince Merik and makes him a reluctant ally. However, his help may not slow down the Bloodwitch now got on the girls’ heels. All Safi and Iseult want is their freedom, but danger lies ahead. With war coming, treaties breaking and magical contagion sweeping the land, the friends will have to fight emperors and mercenaries alike. For some will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.

    Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

    All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one of Austermeer’s Great Libraries, Elisabeth has grown up among the tools of sorcery – magical grimoires that whisper on shelves and rattle beneath iron chains. If provoked, they transform into grotesque monsters of ink and leather. She hopes to become a warden, charged with protecting the kingdom from their power. Then an act of sabotage releases the library’s most dangerous grimoire. Elisabeth’s desperate intervention implicates her in the crime, and she is torn from her home to face justice in the capital. With no one to turn to but her sworn enemy, the sorcerer Nathaniel Thorn, and his mysterious demonic servant, she finds herself entangled in a centuries old conspiracy. Not only could the Great Libraries go up in flames, but the world along with them. As her alliance with Nathaniel grows stronger, Elisabeth starts to question everything she’s been taught – about sorcerers, about the libraries she loves, even about herself. For Elisabeth has a power she has never guessed, and a future she could have never imagined.

    WWW WEDNESDAY 11/6/19

    Hello everyone 👋🏽 Today is another installment of WWW Wednesday, hosted by Taking On A World Of Words. It asks the questions: What are you currently reading? What have you recently finished? What do you plan on reading next?

    What are you currently reading?

    I’m currently on chapter 8 in Unhinged, will be starting Strange the Dreamer, and I am restarting and annotating Beautiful Creatures.

    What have you recently finished?

    Just finished this a little bit ago. First book of the month. I enjoyed it, though I did rate it only 3 stars. The plot twist and end were really good, but the rest was just ok so I went with an overall rating.

    What do you plan on reading next?

    I have two ARCS to read this month (Raven Lane is not pictured) plus I’m continuing my reread of the Splintered series. I plan on doing a full series review once finished and it more than likely will be spoiler filled. I will of course put a spoiler warning at the beginning and in the title.
