[EXCLUSIVE] Interview with Author L. Divine

Recently I was browsing around Amazon and came across a rather interesting series. The description immediately grabbed my attention, not mainly for the drama involved, but the story behind its creation. Author L. Divine is the mastermind behind the ongoing series, Drama High. She hopes to enhance literacy among teens, and with her young adult series she’s aiming at not only giving them something interesting … Continue reading [EXCLUSIVE] Interview with Author L. Divine

Book Review – ‘Nevermore’ by Kelly Creagh

Cheerleader Isobel Lanley is horrified when she’s paired with dark child Varen Nethers for an English project. As disappointed as she is at start, Varen also makes it clear that the feelings of distaste are mutual. Little did Isobel know that aside from working on this project, she would also be pulled into the dreamworld of this mysterious yet intriguing guy. Their feelings are developed as worlds intertwine, but more importantly, Isobel would have to save her new found love from the very thing he himself helped create.

Nevermore‘ portrays a chilling and unlikely romance that you’re bound to get drawn into. It’s all fair in the beginning, describing a girl’s misfortune for getting placed with one of their school’s misfits, but once Edgar Allan Poe became the center piece amongst a series of strange events, I knew the end results would be anything but ‘normal.’It is Poe afterall, and we know his sense of reality isn’t too far from fantasy.

A simple love story would be highly predictable and boring had there been no twists. Don’t you think? Continue reading “Book Review – ‘Nevermore’ by Kelly Creagh”

Book Review – ‘Perception’ by Kim Harrington

Perception (Clarity, #2)Clare Fern is now popular in high school and around town. Her previous activities involving aiding the police with her ‘gift’ has piqued the interest of many, including former enemies Kendall and Brooke. The in-crowd seems to be warming up to her but is it for who she is or what she can do? While Clare continues to question their motives, one person remains the same and she’s neither flattered nor impressed by this suddenly famous psychic.

Kim Harrington is a creative writer. Her words flow precisely well. Perception is a stretch from your usual paranormal, but a little mystery will satisfy your taste just the same.

The follow-up, while still enjoyable, left me with mixed feelings. It’s not that I didn’t like it, its just that the ‘Perception‘ wasn’t always clear, and the story was a bit drawn out and somewhat lacked the element of spontaneity. Continue reading “Book Review – ‘Perception’ by Kim Harrington”

Bus Chronicles: advice galore and mouth of babes

I hate unsolicited advice, it drives me nuts especially that of strangers.  The bus is usually not the best of places to dish out unsolicited advice or soak in words of the wise.  When using public transportation the unspoken rule is to treat everybody as a potential crazy. Basically this entails having a keen inconspicuous eye and not ruling out anybody from the crazy list because of how they look. Looks can be deceiving.
