A New Novel Idea

I have been fighting with myself, trying to write YA Fantasy, my favorite genre to read. I keep failing. I am working on a book that is 20K+ words long and for the life of me I can’t make it work! I love the characters, but the story is just lacking. They deserve better.

So I evaluated myself for a few days. I have come to the realization that although I love to read YA fantasy, I am not very good at writing it. So I have decided to write an NA Contemporary piece. I have decided to share what I have written tonight with you fine people to get your opinions. 🙂 Enjoy!

Top 5 Wednesday – The Second Book Was Best

For this week, Top 5 Wednesday is “the second book is best.” We’ve all read series where the first book is best, but then it goes downhill. We’ve read series where it gets better as you go on, which from my experience is usually what happens. But what about the middle? For this week, it’s about series where the 2nd book is the best. This challenge is going to be a bit difficult to do without spoilers, but I promise I’ll try my best. Just another little note, I have only 3 this week. It was a tough one, and I haven’t finished enough series to pick out 5. Oh well, what can ya do?

Top 5 Wednesday – Book Covers I Could LIVE In

This week’s top 5 is “book covers you would live in”. We find ourselves lost in the worlds that we are reading, but have you ever just wanted to just jump into a cover? Well I have, and I am super duper excited about this week’s challenge! I could probably list 100 if I were to include books I haven’t read yet, but I am sticking to those I have read, for the sake of my sanity (and yours). For once, I am not going to say anything about the books and let the covers speak for themselves.

Top 5 Wednesday – Series That Got Better

Today’s Top 5 Wednesday is “series that get better”, and y’all know how I love series. This one should be easy, peasy, lemon squeezy, right? Well I hope so because as I am typing this I only have 1 in mind. #GetPreparedDumbass I completely forgot Wednesday was coming until it was here. You know, it comes EVERY WEEK and yet somehow I forget until the last minute. I would take time management classes, but I would probably forget to go. So I’ll stop yapping and get to it…
