Re: Favourite Characters in Fiction

I've been reading the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas and just finished The Assassin's Blade which is a book compiling the five novellas for this series. This book goes into more detail about Caelena Sardothien in the months before she is captured. The story is riveting and getting to know h...

Re: Methods of Storytelling

I recently finished a re-read of Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. It had been years since I read it, and it's always been one of my favorite novels. The way this story is told is through narrative storytelling. Mrs. Dean, a servant at Thrushcross Grange, tells Mr. Lockwood the history of Catherine...

Re: Presenting Author - Mark Frost

Tarma had been trying to get me to read The Paladin Prophecy for a while, and I finally did. It does move very quickly and at certain times I got lost but was able to still understand the story without issue. I love good conspiracy theories and this one has one going in it along with a mystery of Wi...

Thora or Theodosia, a name which was stolen from her at the age of six, is a princess in a country that has been taken over by a tyrant ruler hungry f...

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

Everyone on this site, or mostly everyone, knows that I love ballet. I trained at an elite pre-professional school throughout middle school and high school and The Nutcracker just happened to be something that I auditioned for and happened to perform in every year. It was something to look forward t...

Close to Home

I've recently read some books that hit really close to home for me. My current read, which I probably never should have picked up to begin with, is very good, and I can relate to a lot of what the main character feels and thinks. However, I had my own anniversary of my brother's death come up a week...

Alison Sudol aka: Queenie

Alison Sudol is singing again, and if you didn't get the chance to attend LeakyCon and hear her story about that, it's been a while since she's really sung. She finally released a new EP titled Moon. I've listened to the tracks on the album and she has a beautiful voice. I think a few of you will ac...

As I don't have television, I have not been able to watch, but I will be catching it all when it is posted online like I usually do. I have been following Evanna's journey on Instagram, and the two of them make such a great team. Evanna said that after their first dance, they received a low score, a...

Re: The Hero and the Crown * Part 2 - Chapters 18 - 25

I think I expected the end to be the way it was with Tor and Aerin. However, what I didn't expect was Maur's revenge from the grave so to speak. How they got rid of his head was kind of funny. There was also another time switch when it came to explaining her father's death which through me off for ...

Re: The Hero and the Crown * Part 2 - Chapters 12 - 17

It has gotten easier for me to read now, and I am enjoying the book a lot more. The part with Maur happens so fast when I was thinking that would be the major climactic point of the book It was written as much less than that in my opinion with an easy defeat, not much of a struggle compared to other...

Have you seen it? I'm still screaming inside. Also, a theory has been proven true. Go watch for a reveal that will give you chills. If you post anything below from the trailer, please use spoiler tags as it does contain a couple major spoilers.

Re: The Hero and the Crown * Part 1 - Chapters 7 - 11

This may actually be the reason that I am having difficulty with this book. The time hopping that is happening is very hard for me to keep up with and events are getting lost in my head. I'm left more confused than anything and getting extremely frustrated with it. The final two chapters in this par...

Re: The Hero and the Crown * Part 1 - Chapters 1 - 6

I'll admit, this book is very difficult for me to read. I've had to re-read everything twice, and I don't know if it's the long paragraphs that are at a constant or the typeface, but it gives me a headache and it's frustrating me. The story itself appears to be a good one, one that I would be into, ...

Favorite Characters in Fantastic Beasts

I had the privilege of getting to go to LeakyCon this year and sit in three panels with Dan Fogler, Jacob Kawolski and Alison Sudol, Queenie Goldstein. Two of them were solo panels and the other was a panel that included both of them titled Doughnuts and Strudel, and it was amazing. When I first saw...
