House of Night - Some Interesting Quotes!

House of Night by P.C. & Kristin Cast

I've read the first 3 books in the series, and it seems alright up to now!

However, in my opinion, Zoey doesn't have much heroine material. What really frustrates me is her relationship with 3 boys, Heath, Loren and Erik. When she ended up breaking up with all 3 in less than 24 hours (She broke her imprint with Heath; Loren was murdered; Erik broke up with her coz he thought she was cheating on him), I was sorta glad! Heh, heh!

What I find most interesting is the connection between Zoey and Aphrodite. Frenemies! It makes the series all the more interesting!

So guys, check out the books and tell me what  you think!

SasuSaku ROXXX!

Did I mention just how much of a SasuSaku fan I am? Well, I am obsessed with SasuSaku! Seriously though, they totally match for each other! Even Masashi Kishimoto confessed that SasuSaku is his favourite couple! Yay! There's still hope for SasuSaku!

Book Review: The Spook's Bestiary by Joseph Delaney

Have you guys read 'The Spook's Bestiary' by Joseph Delaney? Well, there's this warning on the front saying
Guys, you should totally heed this warning because I find that book damn scary, but then again, I get frightened very easily. Anyway, this book is a total spine-chiller. The illustrations are awesome and so life-like; I think that's what I find most frightening.

Thanks to my paranoia of reading the book after dark, I have started reading a different book after about 6 pm, leaving 'The Spook's Bestiary' to be read during the mornings and afternoons!

The Spook's Bestiary by Joseph Delaney
But it does take the reader on an awesome ride! =P

Series Review: The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini

This fantasy series is an awesome read for all those readers out there. Beautiful writing coupled with pure talent and imagination. One of the best books I've read so far. There's "Eragon", then "Eldest", "Brisingr" and then "Inheritance". I'm still reading "Eldest". Hope to finish it soon! "Inheritance" will be released on November 8, 2011.

Inspiring words by PkmnMaster

This great writer, PkmnMaster, said these great words to all writers and I found them so inspiring:

"If you want a good, clean, solid book just focus on these few things: descriptions, excellent plot planning, no rushed actions, surprises and smooth flowing writing. Descriptions open a world to your readers. It gives them a door straight into your book and allows you to witness the unfolding of your spectacular book. Plot planning is a major key in writing. Plan the blueprints of your book COMPLETELY before you begin writing. It's okay to stray off the path, but don't go too far. No rushed actions means don't jump the gun if you have any type of action in your story. Let things build up. Keep the readers mind moving at a hundred miles an hour but also at fifteen miles an hour to where they do not get lost. Following that would be surprises. Have your readers expect you to go left when you actually go right. Blow their minds, keep them guessing. Lastly, smooth flowing writing is another key component in a successful book. Have your words come off the page nice and easy. The only effort your readers should put into your book is picking it up and letting the gears turn as they read a written movie. I believe that is all I have to say. Focus, focus focus. :)"

I found these words so helpful, so I thought I'd share it with you guys!
