Beauty and the Feast

I haven’t actually read any fairytale fanfics, so this is a first for me. Having a background in the initial B+B story was helpful. I wonder if it’s beneficial for readers who aren’t as savvy with fairy tale/Disney classics to have a little background – like Chip being a cup and Cogsworth still being a clock. I assume they’re still in their object forms, seeing as one can fall onto a pile of plates whilst playing.

Something Pumpkin This Way Comes

Great start. Succinct, to the point, grabs attention – the day is special, this is something we should be interested in, and makes me read on. Emilie’s bubbly energy is endearing and her love of Halloween translates well to the reader. I know I’ve said this before, but ahhh the details on the food, the scent, the taste – I love it all. It puts me in the moment and it makes me so HUNGRY. You have a good knack of weaving in pieces of the environment into the story without info-dumping. I also love the relationship between your characters: full of love and happiness. It fleshes them out and makes them seem more ‘real’.

Win 10 Bestselling YA Fantasy and Sci-Fi Books!

My good friend Maaja Wentz is hosting a draw for 10 bestsellers on her website! Check it out here!

I have to say I have only read one and a half of them. Cassandra Clare’s work I really don’t care about, but I have heard The Gender Game is one of the hottest Dystopian Sci-fis since The Hunger Games, and I have read The Paper Magician and loved it. Yes, the research is a tad dodgy and the first book is slow in terms of the main character being the centre of action and story progression, but there are some heartwarming characters, quirky lines, and a great magic system — the last of which makes this Fantasy a must-read. Check out my review of The Paper Magician here.

 

 

 

Wattpad Spotlight: Tiger’s Precious Moments

104841317-176-k517514

Book promotion! Tiger’s Precious Moments by TheImaginationGirl

Check out this TeenFic on bullying, friendship, and the ups and downs of growing up.

For years I’ve always had ups and downs, sometimes I had won other times I’ve lost. I am Tiger Lee Kennedy the girl who always tries but doesn’t always succeed.

I am just a girl with hopes and dreams. You may have seen me walking around town listening to music from my iPod and wearing a big smile on my face but do you know what is going on in a person’s life?

That is until I meet Mat Salomon the albino boy who loves eating apples, Daisy Gardener who loves going in her rollerblades everyday,their friend Augustine Blackmore who’s always talkative from the group and Edgar Kittymore who is the golden boy from the group. For the first time, I realised I might not lose all hope.

This is a story of a girl who lost nearly everything and if it weren’t for those three, she wouldn’t have survived from all those troubles and experiences if she never faced them. Especially when they were the ones who saw her on her own and nearly saved her from almost chocking her food.

Boo-Yah, Camp NaNoWriMo

Camp-2017-Winner-Facebook-Cover

27 days and 25,000 words later, I have completed Camp NaNoWriMo April 2017. My first ever NaNo camp!

*throws confetti*

25k words is manageable. I normally write about 15k words per month, so this was me sitting down a few more sessions and repeating that. It meant Rune Mage has a few more chapters under its belt so if I ever get struck with another bout of long shifts, I can still update. It also meant it gave me more time to go back to unpublished chapters and add more fodder when I get inspired.

Current word count is 138,454 and I’m hitting the climax of the story soon. Check it out here!
