augh

Every time I try to post I have to stop. I've tried to post like, fifty times.

Okay- so I spent the whole morning at Borders. I read Vortex, Edge of Victory:Rebirth, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Be in awe of my sophisticated literature. After that, I watched Shannah play KOTOR on her laptop. 

THEN

I just got back from sitting at Albertsons for three hours asking people to donate money and food for the food drive. It's raining and I'm tired.

I probably won't be able to post when my cousins come. So don't think I'm dead or anything, okay?

I have two novel pitches/ideas. I'm so glad I finished Or Die Trying so I can start something else!



Number 1: Liadan, a middle schooler, goes to search for her crimelord mother after her dad dies. I like these kinds of stories. I got this from a awesome dream.


Number 2: Kind of a background on Vana Dorja(from my current book) and her poor childhood on Marahasia.


Oh, and I finally got an idea for my rewrite.


My quick summaries of the two Star Wars books I read today.


FOTJ: Vortex(Spoilers!)
Wow. What a doozy. This was a very highly-anticipated book, and it was worth it. Fate of the Jedi has been going remarkably slow, it's been passing quickly without much happening. But this is where the plot speeds up like greased lightning. 
The Jedi Order rescues Valin and Jysella.
They make plans against Daala
Tahiri's trial is almost resolved
Jaina/Jag get re-re-engaged
And the dung beetle of a leader Kenth Hamner commits suicide.
 And so much has happened to Luke and Ben, I'm not sure if I understand it.
UPDATE:
The dung beetle(Kenth Hamner) doesn't commit suicide. He duels with Saba Sebatyne, because he was trying to be a pacifist wimp while the council tried to actually get somewhere, and kriffin stabbed her in the chest before dying.


Edge of Victory: Rebirth
I'd been really wanting to read this because I love Kyp Durron. It was a little disappointing. Not much happens. Ya gotta love Nen Yim though.

I'm on the edge of my seat until Ascension(or is it Conviction?) next year.

  1. I just read Diary of a Wimpy Kid, it was pretty good.

    Number 1 sounds very interesting, and so does Number 2. Is your novel going to be sold in stores, or is it just a personal novel?

    And you finished Vortex?! Awesome!!! Just out of curiosity, what happens to Vestara Khai? Just curious.

    -Barriss :-D

  2. Go Kyp! I just met him this past week in Jedi Search. :D

  3. No, it's just personal. I'm not that good! xD
    Vestara? She goes around making smart remarks about Jedi and Ben, and betrays everyone and confuses me.

    Oh yeah, and she kills Taalon to put him out of his misery while he's getting tortured by Abeloth.

  4. Kenth died?!? That's terrible! Though like I've said before, I don't really keep up with the post NJO novels, so maybe it isn't? lol

  5. Amaranthine: Speaking of personal novels, where do you go to publish just one copy? I googled it, but couldn't find anything. Or do you just sorta put it together yourself?

    So Jag and Jaina were SPOILER: re-re- engaged. *laughs* I think it'd start to get really pathetic if they break up again.

  6. Oooh, Vortex sounds good.
    Endor, Yay! Kyp!!!!! The Jedi Academy trilogy is great, I loved them.

    Both Novel ideas sound great!! <3
    Jedi~Chick :D

  7. Leia-The NaNoWriMo winners get it from CreateSpace, but I know Lulu is a great place to get it published!

    Alex-Kenth was pretty pathetic......
    Barriss-Diary of a Wimpy Kid is like junk food for your brain. xD "Interesting" no. "Addicting"? Yes.

  8. I came across Lulu, but they made it sound like you had to sell the books. I only want one copy. I don't want it sold either. Does the site let you print just one copy? I'm trying to find information for a friend of mine and for myself. Since you seem to know, I hope you don't mind me asking. =)

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO



































love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Similarities:
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

Howl's Moving Castle book analysis

“I feel ill. I'm going to bed, where I may die.”
― Howl, upon having a cold. I've decided to call them "book analysis" because they're not really reviews that tell you how much I liked the book, rather,  me taking the book apart and looking at different aspects of it for my own entertainment. Read on. Also, read Howl's Moving Castle.







This is the original cover of Howl's Moving Castle and I have got to say it is the UGLIEST thing I have ever seen. I like the new one much better.

Ahem.


First of all, I should point out that Howl's Moving Castle is a children's book. However, I like to hold all books I read to the same standard, after all, they're written by adults.

I had biased expectations of Howl's Moving Castle from the start, because I kept hearing from several sources how amazing, how fantastic, how hilarious and how romantic the book was, and hearing the perfectly gorgeous soundtrack by Joe Hizazi(something or other.)

Howl's Movi…
