Your Friends Might Be Fairies

Your Friends Might Be Fairies

It occurred to me a couple of days ago that should a young adult who had previously appeared mostly normal turn around to me and inform me that they were a fairy / vampire / werewolf / other supernatural creature, I’d probably just roll with it. Sure, so I might suspect they read too much YA, but if they had any sort of proof (oddly coloured or glowing eyes, weird moving tattoos, fangs, or a series of absences on full…

Review: “Mythology” by Helen Boswell

Review: “Mythology” by Helen Boswell

A few blogs I follow have recently posted reviews (Charley R, Nevillegirl, etc.) so I thought I’d do the same. I actually have a book blog, which I frequently neglect, but since so few people read that and so many of you read this, I don’t really see why I need two separate sites. So it’s going here. Bite me. Why did I buy this book? Well, technically, I didn’t. While hanging out on the internet somewhere, a fellow writer…

The Hunger Games Is Not The New Twilight

The Hunger Games Is Not The New Twilight

Just as people compared Twilight to Harry Potter because it was a bestselling book, the film made lots of money, and it sparked loads of fan art, fiction and music, people are now comparing The Hunger Games to Twilight. And this annoys me. Because although they’ve got their similarities, they’re different. They’re so, so different. You only have to look at these two movie posters to figure that there’s something a little more interesting about Katniss as a character… but I digress. In an…

The Library In My Bag

The Library In My Bag

Every Friday, or whenever I remember to, I go to the library. Well, it’s more a case of whenever I have time, because it’s pretty hard to forget to go to the library. (Mind you, the amount of things I’ve failed to do this week would cast strong doubts on the truthfulness of that statement.) Today, I went to the library with my friend Andy, because he says he finds it difficult to spend more than five minutes in a…

Feather Pen Friday: Why Twilight Makes Me Angry

Feather Pen Friday: Why Twilight Makes Me Angry

I’ve been hoping to post this for you since I wrote it, last October (the 13th, to be precise), but I keep losing the piece of paper. Now, when looking for something else entirely, I’ve found it. So here it is, a rant about Twilight. And I wish I could say I was calling it a rant for want of a better word, but I’m not. That’s what it is. This is a draft for my English GCSE assignment (and…

The Doctor, Christmas, And Revision

The Doctor, Christmas, And Revision

First of all, the Doctor. Well, what can I say? I’m sure there are some people out there that couldn’t tell me three facts about the Doctor off the top of their head, and there are also probably people who are sitting there going, “Is she ill? Why is she telling us about the doctor?” But I’m not. At least, I’m not telling you about the doctor. I’m telling you about the Doctor. Yes, there is a difference. However, these…
