Supernatural season 1 (2005)

phonto(7).jpg

Supernatural was one of those shows that I kept convincing myself that I wouldn’t watch even though a part of me really really wanted to. Why you might ask? Because when I started they were already in season 12.

Intimidating? Definitely.

I finally gave in and decided to watch this glorious show from scratch and make my way up. In this review I’ll be listing my favorite episodes and my overall thought about the show. Including a little rambling.

So, let’s get started with the review, shall we?

*Might Contain Spoilers*

Synopsis:

The series follows the two Winchester brothers, Sam and Dean as they hunt demons, ghosts, monsters, and other supernatural beings. after his wife, Mary, was murdered by an evil supernatural being when the boys were young. 22 years later the brothers set out on a journey, fighting evil along the way, to find their recently missing father, but what they don’t know is that their lives are about to take the most eventful turn ever.

Season: 1

Episodes: 22

Cast: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Jim Beaver.

 


 

What I loved about this show was the chemistry. Although they haven’t seen eachother for a while you can still sense that their brotherly bond is still there, and that they’ve always got eachothers backs. The character development throughout the season was perfect.

This season was a bit strange for me if only because you dont know where it’s going. So many questions keep poping up in your head (I mean thats a good thing because you just started, and you’re eager to know what the hell is going on). The episodes were intriguing though! it really kept me busy. There wasn’t just one ghost or spirirt or monster. Each episode had something new.

I was told when I started that the episodes would be scary. That wasn’t true. Creepy? sure. Scary? not really. If you arent used to watching creepy shows or vampires, demons, ghosts, and all that jazz, maybe. I was on edge constantly because I was waiting for something to scare the living existence out of me.

The events that ended the season ruined me. So many fears and not knowing what will happen next. Then I guess starting late was a good idea wasn’t it?


Top Five Favorite episode

  • Bloody Mary: An incantation uttered during a game of truth or dare unleashes a ghost who “lives” in mirrors…and kills by gouging out the eyes of her prey. 350px-Bloody_Mary105

Thoughts: The urban legend is that if you say bloody mary infront of a mirror 3 times you’ll summon an evil spirit. I got so excited when I saw the title of the episode. I was expecting creepy and that’s what I got!

 


  • Home: After 22 years, A new family moves into the brothers’ old home, Sam and Dean return to their childhood home and, if Sam’s nightmares are correct, this house has yet another evil hidden inside. f4c1956a918159cb857a6ca805f81c223fd9e939

Thoughts: Sam and Dean go back to their old house to find a family living there, and Sam has a nighmare that something bad is about to happen. Not going to ruin the episode for anyone but the twist we got in the end was a complete thumbs up.


  • Asylum: The brothers investigate a long-shuttered mental asylum that has the power to drive intruders mad…and murderous. c3cbec2323faf3eba4d3fd20f0d26036--supernatural-quotes-supernatural-seasons.jpg

Thoughts: I remember watching this episode a long long time ago. For years I wondered which season of supernatural it was from. Then the day came for me to finally watch it again and grasp what it was about. Was not disappointed Ill tell you that.

Mental aylums in Tv series always give me the hibbie jibbies, and then they always end up being my favorite episodes.


  • Provenance: A portrait of a long-dead family has the spirits of the father and daughter trapped inside and someone is murdering its owners. GW290H194.jpg

Thoughts: This one starts off with a couple getting killed after putting up a painting of a family on their mantel. Spooky? for sure. The entire episode I was guessing a certain person to be the one behind it, but boy was I wrong.

 


  • Devils Trap: Sam and Dean race off to rescue their father, resulting in their first showdown between the Winchesters and the Yellow-Eyed Demon they have spent their lives looking for. tumblr_inline_mnylbtoTTu1qz4rgp.jpg

Thoughts: This was the final episode of season 1. The conclusion that we got to and the way it ended managed to rip my heart out. It was a week or so before I manged to get the second season. That week was pure agony Im sure you can tell.


 

With that I conclude this review. I loved the first season and it really did encourage me to continue on. Im writing this a bit late (Since im in season 6 now) but I thought Id give an idea to those who are hesitant to watch it.

Top Five Most Anticipated Reads {Top Five Thursdays}

 

phonto(6).jpg

Here Is to the first post under this category! Since Ive been struggling with my TBR list I thought why not list a few of my most anticipated reads. Of course, I would be lying if i said this was even half the list. You know how TBRs works.


 

PicsArt_11-13-02.49.25.jpg

It’s the story of two teens in a broken world, where violent acts breed actual monsters. Some are shadows with teeth that feed on flesh and bone. Some are corpses that feed on blood. And some can pass for human. Those feed on souls.

That marvelous piece of work up there was written by the author herself. Because, honestly no amount of trying would get me to write a perfect synopsis for this marvelous book.

This book is exceptionally interesting. why?

  • Did someone say monsters?
  • Its bloody! (do i have a problem? probably)
  • Very dark and brooding. Therefore, this book called to me.
  • No romance? i admit i do like a hint of romance in my books BUT, its nice to see that there’s a story that doesn’t need romance to make it an amazing one.

Are you intrigued yet?


 

This book gave me a circus kind of vibe AND I LOVE CIRCUSES! I mean I feel like the cover says it all. It practically screams at you. At first this was partially a cover buy, and then I read the synopsis and absolutely had to have it!

Honestly, Ive read so many amazing reviews that just made me want to drop every book im currently reading just to pick it up! (But that would be unfair to my other babies). I am a bit hesitant since I heard this ends in a cliffhanger? Do I like cliffhangers? No, I absolutely do not like cliffhangers but, am I going to wait until the next book is released to read it? Hahahaha. No.

Sarah J. Maas has taken away 14 years of my life with her writing. Every book leaves me crying an ocean. I recently finished throne of glass, and my current read is crown of midnight. The thing is while reading it got me really intrigued to read about Celaenas past which, is in this lovely masterpiece.

5 novellas = a whole lot of pain and suffering. Do I need a better reason to read it? I think not.

img_20170713_000426_254.jpg


 

I bought this book when I went to Malaysia last year. Have I started it yet? Yes. Yes I have. Have I finished it yet? No.

You see I picked the wrong time to start this book. I was in the biggest slump of  my life and I figured it was a bad time so, I put it on hold so that I wouldn’t end up disliking it (sometimes the circumstances make a decision for you). I will be picking it up after my current read because to be honest, I cant stay away anymore!

Kaz needs a crew desperate enough to take on this suicide mission and dangerous enough to get the job done – and he knows exactly who: six of the deadliest outcasts the city has to offer. Together, they just might be unstoppable – if they don’t kill each other first.

Wasn’t that lovely? I bet it was. Be ready to hear me scream about this book in the near future.

PicsArt_11-13-02.30.53


 

Ah its time to talk about my favorite author of all time. Every book shes written has managed to make me cry an ocean, and I have a feeling this will be no exception.

This book has ten stories in one. Yes you read that right. TEN MARVELOUS STORIES IN ONE. I shall review each story on its own just so I can accurately explain my feelings. Expect some intense flailing.

Real question is which am I going to read first?

The Fault In Our Stars By John Green (Book Review)

IMG_1002.JPG

Allow me to express my undying feels. This was my first contemporary book, and my first book by John Green. AND THE BIGGEST SOUL CRUSHER.

*Clears throat* where shall I even start? I picked this book up with shaky hands, because:

  1. First contemporary read ever.
  2. It didn’t scream dragons, magic and portals at me.
  3. I knew that by the end of the book I would be a puddle of tears. And I was.

For a first contemporary book this was absolutely amazing. This is the book that made me less shaky about non fantasy books and the like. So, let’s get started with a real review, shall we?

Synopsis:

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

  • Plot: It never gave me a chance to feel bored. I couldn’t put the book down. I read it in the bus on the way to school, between breaks when the teacher was absent, and on the bus on the way home. I always felt pretty annoyed when I had to put it down for whatever reason.
  • Theme: What I loved about this book was the fact that it addressed family, love, pain, life and everything in-between. As devastating as this book was it opened my eyes to so many things that made me think a bit deeper about life.
  • Characters: Going through Hazel & Augustus’s adventures was by far the most heart wrenching, raw and beautiful adventure of all. I loved each of them very much. I loved how they both fought their battles together and continued on despite the odds being against them. Lets not forget about Isaac, too. He was another brave soul.

This review is a very short one but, i really hope that whoever is reading this review, and hasn’t picked this book up yet to please read it. I know it became very overrated but the story truly was beautiful. At least give it a tiny chance (Especially if you love heart wrenching books that make you cry for hours)

Throne of Glass By Sarah J. Maas (Book Review)

phonto.jpg

Its finally time for another book review!

I finally finished this book. After a slump that lasted a million years. Now its officially time to express my feeling to all you, lovelies.

This is the 4th Sarah J. Maas book Ive read. I started with the A Court of Thorns & Roses series first and loved them to absolute ruins! *Heart Eyes* so, naturally I decided to read this series as well.


81So8-c3u5L.jpg

Synopsis:

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king’s council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilarating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her … but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead … quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.


 

IMG_0987.JPG

  • This book. Where does one even start. Despite going into a slump half way through the book (not the books fault), I got sucked in the moment I picked it up again. It was just that intriguing!
  • I admit that the cover is what pulled me at first but the moment I read the synopsis I was sure I was going to love it. And I did!
  • The fact that the protagonist is A) An assassin. B) is female. C) Doesn’t need a man to defend her. She can easily gut you all on her own.
  • There’s that hidden magic aspect that I was sure would evolve in the later books. Especially since we saw a glimpse of it in this book. It can only go upwards from here.
  • The banter. Can I just say that this is one of the things that I look forward to in any book?
  • I really do wish we got to see more “assassin in action” scenes though.

IMG_20171116_184341_387.jpg

  • Celaena Sardothien: She was sassy, amazing (she’ll make sure you know that), has flaws but owns them, and is one of the most skilled assassins. Absolutely loved her!
  • Dorian Havilliard: This guys personality. I fell in love with him almost instantly. He was super sassy, wasn’t a spoiled brat, gave Celaena a puppy! (is that not enough?!), and loves books. I couldn’t ask for a better guy myself.
  • Nehemia Ytger: Super loyal, strong and confident, a great friend to Celaena, and basically I want a friend like this.
  • Chaol Westfall: I didn’t exactly love him but, he did have his cute moments. He always seemed stiff? (Don’t know about you guys but that’s how i saw him). I felt like he needed to loosen up. A lot. I really wish we got to see more of him. Hopefully, in the next books.
  • Nox: The only other contestant (other than Celaena) that I liked.
  • Duke Perrington: The biggest weasel to ever exist. I hated his guts so damn much.
  • The King of Adarlan: The first person to go has to be this guy right here. I still cant fathom the fact that this horrible human, is the father of the sweetest human.

“You could rattle the stars,” she whispered. “You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.”

“How long was I asleep?” she whispered. He didn’t respond.
“How long was I asleep?” she asked again, and noticed a hint of red in his cheeks.
“You were asleep, too?”
“Until you began drooling on my shoulder.”

“We all bear scars,… Mine just happen to be more visible than most.”

“My name is Celaena Sardothien. But it makes no difference if my name’s Celaena or Lillian or Bitch, because I’d still beat you, no matter what you call me.”

“Didn’t I give you three pounds of candy?”
She smiled impishly.
“You ate half the bag!”
“Was I supposed to save it?”
“I would have liked some!”
“You never told me that.”
“Because I didn’t expect you to consume all of it before breakfast!”
She snatched the bag from him and put it on the table. “Well, that just shows poor judgement on your part, doesn’t it?”


IMG_20171115_195328_471.jpg

I already started reading Crown of Midnight and so far im pretty happy with the way its headed. Overall, I gave this one a 5 star rating because I truly loved it with the entirety of my little black soul.

TMI Tag! – Book blogger edition

IMG_0860.JPG

I saw this on fandomsontherun blog and decided to give it a try!

so lets begin!

1) What fictional character has the best style?
The first character that came to my mind was Isabelle Lightwood. I mean let’s be honest, she could rock anything. Anything at all. And that’s a fact.


 

2)Your book girlfriend/boyfriend/ fictional crush?
I read The infernal devices about 3 or 4 years ago and ever since then I’ve been obsessed with Will Herondale *Swoons*, He’s still my number one and let’s be honest, he’s never really coming down.


 

3)Ever loved a character but then started hating them?
Ah yes. I loved Adam Kent when I first read the shatter me series. Throughout the second and third book my love for him died in a little hole in the ground. He changed a lot and that really frustrated me. But the character development in those books really skyrocketed.


 

4)Biggest/Longest book on your shelf?
That would most probably be the illustrated works of Jane Austen that has 832 pages. Which I haven’t read yet.


 

5)Heaviest book on your shelf?
I have many heavy books. The illustrated works of jane austen, City of heavenly fire, lady midnight and lord of shadows. I think those are the heaviest book I own.


 

6)Do you have any book posters?
Sadly not *cries a river*, but I’m aiming to change that!


 

7)Do you have any book themed jewelry?
Another thing that I don’t own.


 

8)Book OTP?
How does one only have one book OTP? Let me list a few of my favorites:

  • Wessa (Will & Tessa, The Infernal Devices)

I’ll have you know that this is my ultimate OTP.

  • Feysand (Feyre & Rhysand, A Court of Thorns and Roses series)

I love these two so incredibly much and if you haven’t read the books yet please do!

  • Sizzy (Simon & Isabelle, The Mortal Instruments series)

Most people who’ve read the series love them, and I got attached to these two more than anything.

  • Warnette (Warner & Juliette, Shatter Me series)

This will definitely differ from one person to another. I’ve had long debates surrounding this ship and a reminder that it’s your opinion. I love them. You have every right to disagree with me if you want to.


 

9)Favorite book series?
I fell in love with reading even more once I finished The Mortal Instruments series. I acknowledge that it has its flaws and there could be many but I still love it regardless. It had all the elements that I loved and wanted. The characters were perfect and I still have a long lasting attachment to them. Cassandra Clare is keeping this dragon sane by feeding her more Shadowhunter books! Anyone here a fan?


 

10)Favorite Book-to-movie soundtrack?
Well, The Mortal Instruments movie wasn’t perfect *Sad eyes*, but I loved the soundtrack so so much! Another great one was the fault in our stars and…you know what? Let me give you some of my favorites:

  • Heart by heart by Demi Lovato (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Soundtrack)
  • When the darkness comes by Colbie Caillat (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Soundtrack)
  • Magnetic by Jessie J (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Soundtrack)
  • All the stars by Ed Sheeran (The Fault In Our Stars Soundtrack)
  • Boom Clap by Charlie XCX (The Fault In Our Stars Soundtrack)
  • Not about angels by Birdy (The Fault In Our Stars Soundtrack)
  • Safe & sound by Taylor Swift (The Hunger Games Soundtrack)
  • Elastic Heart by Sia (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Soundtrack)

Those are only some but you get the point.


 

11)A book story you miss/ wish would continue?
If you asked me this a year ago id say the Shatter Me series. But we all know now that we will be getting more books starting next year! *Flails* Who here is as excited as I am?


 

12)Favorite stand-alone?
We were liars. I hardly read contemporary but I read this in hopes to fix that. It shattered my little soul into a million pieces. I loved it anyways. Heart ache is inevitable with this one.


 

13)Since when did you read books?
I read books when I was little but became obsessed when I was around 14.


 

14)Which Hogwarts house are you in?
A Ravenclaw and proud!


 

15)Quality you look for in a book?

  • Intriguing is the best word for this.
  • My dark soul loves equally dark books so there’s that.
  • Believable characters? I need to connect with the characters. Who’d want to read a book with stale characters?

 

16)Favorite book quote?
“Life is a book and there are a thousand pages I have not yet read.”

– Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess

This quote. THIS quote has been my favorite for years. No amount of time can change that.


 

17)Favorite author?
The queen Cassandra Clare of course!


 

18)Favorite book cover?
The wrath and the dawn. The day I saw that cover I knew I had to have it between my fingers. The color and design just called to me. The story was amazing so I didn’t feel guilty about buying it.


 

19)Action or Romance?
More of an action loving reader but a bit of both is a perfect combination.


 

20)Where do you go when a sad moment happens?
I usually close the book, avoid throwing it at a wall and sob. My perfect way of fixing things. There is some screeching from time to time.


 

21)How long do you need to finish a book?
I’m in a slump at the moment so forever would be the right word but it depends on how busy I am usually. University is making reading hard these days.


 

22)How long is your mourning period?
A day or two mostly. Though even once I move on the memories come back randomly and ruin everything.


 

23)Least favorite Book?
Paper towns. As much as I wanted to love this book. I really really did but it just wasn’t for me. It took so long to pick up and I only enjoyed the book towards the ending.


 

24)Turn on in a character?
Naturally when I meet someone the first thing I notice is their smile so describing a characters smile or laugh in a book is enough to get a hold of my heart.


 

25)Turn off in a character?
Being mean and bullying. That right there ladies and gentleman is enough.


 

26)Reason I started blogging?
I started with bookstagram and I felt like I had a little world of my own with people who loved book just as much as I did. So I thought why not blog too! I’m trying to be persistent here.


 

27)Name a scary book?
I haven’t read any scary books yet. I am reading Cage of Bones by Tania Caver and its very chilling.


 

28)Last book that made you cry?
I think that would be We were liars. I haven’t read anything that made me cry buckets so far.


 

29)Last book that you gave 5 stars?
A Court Of Mist And Fury by Sarah J. Maas.


 

30)Any favorite book titles?

  • The wrath and the dawn
  • A court of wings and ruin
  • Six of crows
  • Lady midnight
  • Every Harry Potter book under the sun!

A Court Of Wings & Ruin by Sarah J. Maas.


 

33)Last book adaptation you watched?
The scorch trials.


 

34)A book character you always wanted to talk to?
Tessa Gray.


 

35)An author you always wanted to talk to?
Cassandra Clare. So that I can praise her for her work and for keeping me alive.


 

36)Favorite Book snack?
Eating while reading is a huge no no for me. I’m terrified of crumbs.


 

37)Book world you want to live in?
Take me to Hogwarts! I’m ready!


 

38)Book world you DON’T want to live in?

Panem. I will NOT volunteer as tribute thank you very much.


 

39)Last time you smelled a book?
I can assure you it hasn’t been that long. I smell books all the time.


 

40)Weird insults used in books?
probably “Shank” and “Klunk” both from The Maze Runner.


 

41)Favorite romance book?
I don’t read romance as a genre to be honest. Not really my area.

 


 

42)Do you write?
yup! I wrote a short story for a competition at my university and won second place! I’m going to start writing my book soon.


 

43)Favorite magical item?
Wands. Ever since Harry Potter waltzed into my life I have wanted one. I won’t rest until I have a real one in my hands.


 

44)Your quidditch position?
I think id fall straight off the broom and succumb to my death before getting anywhere.

Synopsis

In a land ruled by a murderous boy-king, each dawn brings heartache to a new family. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, is a monster. Each night he takes a new bride only to have a silk cord wrapped around her throat come morning. When sixteen-year-old Shahrzad’s dearest friend falls victim to Khalid, Shahrzad vows vengeance and volunteers to be his next bride. Shahrzad is determined not only to stay alive, but to end the caliph’s reign of terror once and for all.

Night after night, Shahrzad beguiles Khalid, weaving stories that enchant, ensuring her survival, though she knows each dawn could be her last. But something she never expected begins to happen: Khalid is nothing like what she’d imagined him to be. This monster is a boy with a tormented heart. Incredibly, Shahrzad finds herself falling in love. How is this possible? It’s an unforgivable betrayal. Still, Shahrzad has come to understand all is not as it seems in this palace of marble and stone. She resolves to uncover whatever secrets lurk and, despite her love, be ready to take Khalid’s life as retribution for the many lives he’s stolen. Can their love survive this world of stories and secrets?


My Review

I was attracted to this book immediately after finding out it was a retelling of the classical One Thousand and One Nights tale. One thousand and one nights is a collection of middle eastern folk tales, and as an Arab girl it fascinated me to see a retelling of those stories in a YA book.

I felt like the excitement kicked off the moment I opened the book. So many questions were going through my head. Why were these girls killed immediately? Did they have anything in common that could be the reason why they were killed? (other than being his brides) and how could Shahrzad prevent it from happening to her?

I admit half way through the book I was pretty anxious to just get to the end of it all but I never actually felt bored. I actually enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would. The story was fresh and different from most YA books. I loved the way the author described the events and settings. She also used many Persian words throughout the book (can be found in the glossary at the end of the book), as well as describing Persian cuisine. I felt like she described the culture beautifully and added a lot of diversity to the books.

I liked most of the characters. Shahrzad was sassy, never afraid to speak her mind, fierce and was quite witty although she did frustrate me sometimes but then again nobody is perfect. Khalid was a lonely soul and I figured there must be some huge plot twist as to why he kills his brides every night (and there was!) as soon as that hole was patched up he climbed up my list of favorite characters. Despina was my favorite from the very beginning. She was a bundle of sass and beauty and helped Shazi in so many ways I truly loved her. Jalal was another character I loved immediately. He was just so nice and i trusted him from the very beginning.

I finished this book during my break between classes and the moment I closed the book I felt like screaming. It ended at such a cliffhanger. I knew there had to be a second book, and my guess was right! I still haven’t picked the second book up yet but I’m definitely planning to soon!


Favorite Quotes

“So you would have me throw Shazi to the wolves?”
“Shazi?” Jalal’s grin widened. “Honestly, I pity the wolves.”

“My soul sees its equal in you.”

“She was a dangerous, dangerous girl. A plague. A Mountain of Adamant who tore the iron from ships, sinking them to their watery graves without a second thought. With a mere smile and a wrinkle of her nose.”

#TheWritingTag!

0.jpg

Good day Perkies!

Today’s post is going to be a tag! say hello to the writing tag. I’ll be sharing some tiny facts and advice with you guys. So I hope this is useful and that I don’t bore you too much 🙊

WHAT GENRES, STYLES, AND TOPICS DO YOU WRITE ABOUT?

  • Genres:

Well Ive only just started writing but everyone who knows me understands the obsession i have with fantasy 😍 so many different stories have been forming in my head (mostly at 3 am while im trying to sleep) But even though im a sleep deprived lady Ive never regretted it once (okay maybe that one time but it WAS one time). Most of my stories are fantasy/YA based but im also planning on writing a steampunk, Victorian type story so we shall see how that turns out.

  • Styles:

There are 2 styles that I love:

-First person narration: Because I love feeling like I am the story and that im slightly badass and not just an almost 20 year old who studies psychology for a living.

-Third person narration: Sometimes I feel like its easier to write this way but i suppose i switch every once in a while.

  • Topics:

Well….get ready for an overload of topics. BUT these are not all in one book so we can all relax now.

  1.   Vampires, Witches & Warlocks, Faeries, Werewolves, and my own personal twist Foxes.
  2. Rival kingdoms.
  3. A legendary and lost queen.
  4. Fae warriors.
  5. Badass ladies.
  6. A million powers all in one little person.
  7. DRAGONS!
  8. Mermaids and the like.
  9. Dark fantasy and wit.
  10. A banshee who’s part of a choir.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WRITING?

A year maybe? i write bits and pieces here and there, nothing actually complete. I start writing for one of my series but stopped because i changed so many ideas. Now its just sitting there weeping in one of my folders. I did write a short story though for a competition and i got 2nd place! 😁 im very proud of that little piece of work and got amazing comments from amazing people on bookstagram + mom and grandma!

WHY DO YOU WRITE?

It bring me joy. I just love the thought of my characters being as real to readers as they are in my own little head. Ive also realized why authors love to torture us readers. The moment i come up with some shocking plot twist i automatically feel satisfaction i swear one day I’ll probably be drinking your tears in my mug for breakfast.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO WRITE?

For me the best time is either early in the morning when everyone is asleep or at night when everyone is busy doing their own thing. I like to write in peace and quiet and far away from the world as possible. Why would you want your family to see you sobbing, shrieking and yelling at fictional characters?

PARTS OF WRITING YOU LOVE VS PARTS YOU HATE?

Love:

  1. That moment when you get the most brilliant idea just by staring at a wall.
  2. The way the words just seem to flow.
  3. When all the sleepless night pay off and you’ve got the best plot put together.
  4. When you get the most positive comments from people ❤️
  5. Creating characters that are simply 👌🏽

Hate:

  1. Sleepless nights filled with overthinking and no ideas whatsoever.
  2. Not being able to give a character the name they deserve.
  3. When an idea seems brilliant the night before and then you wake up and just think what the actual hell?

HOW DO YOU OVERCOME WRITERS BLOCK?

I sit on pinterest the entire day just staring at all the art and fantasy story ideas along with some inspirational quotes and BAM it hits me eventually. Another method is watching tv. i binge a bunch of series and sometimes that helps my brain function again. Also reading!

ARE YOU WORKING ON SOMETHING AT THE MOMENT?

Summer is just around the corner and Ive vowed to write my first novel during that time. I haven’t figured out a title yet but it will come to me eventually. My characters are waiting for me to start bringing them to life and i couldn’t be more excited!

WRITING GOALS THIS YEAR?

  1. Write my first novel.
  2. Edit it and have it ready for future publishing.
  3. To start writing the series that started it all.

That was fun!
