I am starting something exciting! You guys kept begging me to write more fanfiction, (after those few that I posted last year) so as a fun alternative, I will now be doing "Writing Wednesdays". I will post a new chapter every week and you guys get to decide what happens next!! To get started, I have a quick three question survey that I need to have as MANY RESPONSES AS POSSIBLE in order to get started. Please share this link with your friends and take it!! I look forward to writing with you. If you have any questions, comment them below.

So, a while ago, I wrote a Fanfiction for The One by Kiera Cass and a lot of you liked it and have been begging me to write something else. So I've decided to start posting a part of a continuous story every other Wednesday.

If you want me to write about something particular, whether it be Fanfiction or just plain fiction, please submit your ideas to the contact form on the left and then we will vote on them next week. Please have your ideas submitted by Saturday!!! Also, send some character names, that will also be a part of the poll.

Thank you, darlings! Have a great day and please submit.

TBR Book Tag

 Thanks to the beautiful Cambrie from And So the Book Begins for tagging me to do the TBR Book Tag.

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
Um- see, I am really disorganized about that. I have the Goodreads app on my phone, and whenever I see a book I’m like, OH I NEED THIS. And so I scan it and add it to my Want to Read List. But mostly I just go into the library and improvise. If I have a favorite author and I know I want to buy their newest book, I put it into my nonexistent budget plan.

Is your TBR mostly printed or eBook?

It depends on the book. If the book is from my favorite author/a book I’m positive I’ll love/a book that I’ve already read and love, I will definitely say printed. I am a big fan of being able to hold a physical copy. However, if I just want the book for a fun read, I will always get the eBook.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?

I basically have my list, and I go into Barnes and Noble and choose the one on sale. No, I wish I could do that! I go into the library, start alphabetically, and pick up the first two or three books that are available from my list.

A book that's been on your TBR list the longest?
Thank you, Goodreads! Apparently Saving Juliet by Suzanne Selfors. I’ve had that on there for two years now. It’s probably time to start reading it.

A book on your TBR strictly because of it's beautiful cover?
The Ring and the Crown by Melissa de la Cruz. I mean, who cares about the average three star rating- look at this!!!

A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading?

Icons by Margaret Stohl. Seriously. I’ve checked it out from the library three times now and it just sits on my shelf without ever being opened. It’s really kind of ridiculous, but I can’t bring myself to start reading it. Procrastination for the win!

An unpublished book on your TBR that you're excited for?
Um, I have like, a million. Here are the top ten: [in no particular order]

  1. The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
  2. Winter by Marissa Meyer
  3. The Paris Mysteries by James Patterson
  4. Captive by Aimee Carter
  5. Killer Instinct by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
  6. Fairest by Marissa Meyer
  7. Princess Academy #3 by Shannon Hale
  8. Illusionarium by Heather Dixon
  9. Heist Society #4 by Ally Carter (PLEASE LET THERE BE ONE)
  10. The Heir by Kiera Cass

A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read but you?  


A book on your TBR that everyone recommends you?

I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore. And I keep meaning to read it, but guys! ALL THESE BEAUTIFUL BOOKS IT’S LIKE ONLY BEING ABLE TO GET ONE FLAVOR AT AN ICECREAM SHOP.

A book on your TBR that you're dying to read?
I am really wanting to read The Young Elites by Marie Lu, which actually comes out today :) I don’t know if I have the money to buy it, but I am sure going to try. Be expecting a review of The Blood of Olympus up later tomorrow!!

How many books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
Ugh I never update my TBR shelf on Goodreads anymore, but it says 137 books. I guess I better get started crossing off this list. That’s what happens if you don’t start reading- it just keeps piling up!


Guys, I have no blogger friends, so therefore, if you would like to do this book tag, go ahead, and just say that I tagged you in it.

October Newsletter

Quick comment: October is the BEST MONTH for New Releases! I've been saving every gift card and every penny just for this month. Be careful for how far you scroll down, or you might spend all your money!!!

Blood of Olymus by Rick Riordan
Release Date: October 7th

Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen—all of them—and they're stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood—the blood of Olympus—in order to wake.

The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance. Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it "might" be able to stop a war between the two camps.

The Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east. The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea's army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over.

Young Elites by Marie Lu
Release Date: October 7th

17984141Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.

Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.

It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.

Atlantia by Ally Condie
Release Date: October 28th

17731926For as long as she can remember, Rio has dreamt of the sand and sky Above—of life beyond her underwater city of Atlantia. But in a single moment, all her plans for the future are thwarted when her twin sister, Bay, makes an unexpected decision, stranding Rio Below. Alone, ripped away from the last person who knew Rio’s true self—and the powerful siren voice she has long hidden—she has nothing left to lose.

Guided by a dangerous and unlikely mentor, Rio formulates a plan that leads to increasingly treacherous questions about her mother’s death, her own destiny, and the complex system constructed to govern the divide between land and sea. Her life and her city depend on Rio to listen to the voices of the past and to speak long-hidden truths.

The Body Electric by Beth Revis 
Release Date: October 6th 

Ella Shepherd has dedicated her life to using her unique gift—the ability to enter people’s dreams and memories using technology developed by her mother—to help others relive their happy memories.

But not all is at it seems.

Ella starts seeing impossible things—images of her dead father, warnings of who she cannot trust. Her government recruits her to spy on a rebel group, using her ability to experience—and influence—the memories of traitors. But the leader of the rebels claims they used to be in love—even though Ella’s never met him before in her life. Which can only mean one thing…

Someone’s altered her memory.

Ella’s gift is enough to overthrow a corrupt government or crush a growing rebel group. She is the key to stopping a war she didn’t even know was happening. But if someone else has been inside Ella’s head, she cannot trust her own memories, thoughts, or feelings.

So who can she trust?
