Game night! Write a piece based on this theme and you can include this phrase:

”It all started with a game of checkers…”

Come to think of it, those movies Game Night and Tag came out, didn’t they? I wonder if they’re good? Anyway, good luck and happy writing!!

Wattpad

So a while ago, I got a Wattpad account on advice from a friend. I meant to post about this sooner but I kept forgetting. I’ve only written short stories so far, but I’d like to get to more longer stuff. Plotting and world-building really take a bit. Have a Wattpad? Check me out @IcyNotBubbly. I’m working on the third short story for my runaways trilogy (titled A Night in Eden but I might change it to match the other two) and a longer story.

 

 

On another note, volume 11 of The Demon Prince of Momochi House came out last Tuesday. I’ll try to get the summary for it out soon, I won’t give a date or timeline, but I will say, OMG! Creepy, awesome, why-can’t-I-get-the-next-volume-now-what-happens-next? feel. So stay tuned for that!

I hope everybody has a pleasant weekend!

 

Sunday funday, Manga Madness

So, I finally finished (mostly) the books mentioned in Manga Madness and The Box 

I have read the first four volumes of Requiem of Rose King, the fourth volume of the Skip Beat! big edition and Goliath.

I don’t have a review/summary for Scott Westerfeld’s Goliath. I will say I have thoroughly enjoyed the trilogy and the last one was a perfect ending for me.

I feel like I’m finally making some progress in my reading list. My manga pile is dwindling and I am that much closer to getting to the novel-type books I have waiting.

Although I did end up adding another box the pile. Curse you, library book sales with your $1 paperbacks and your fill-up-a-bag-and-it’s-$3!! T_T

I might have a problem. o_o

Meh. Oh well.

The Box

I keep referencing this Box and what it is, obviously is a box of books I need to read. Still working on finishing the books mentioned in the post linked above and hopefully by next year I can finally get my read on.

Two series are in the box:

The Ghostwalker series by Christine Feehan

They were just soldiers wanting to defend their country. Paranormal romance queen, Christine Feehan’s Ghostwalker series is about a group of military soldiers who have been psychically enhanced by the government. I read the first book, Shadow Game, already about Captain Rylan Miller, who’s unit is being kept locked in a facility by the government. And someone’s been killing the members of his unit. With the help of Lily Whitney, daughter of Dr. Whitney who enhanced them they escape the facility and find out who’s killing Rylan’s men.

The next book is Mind Game about Nico, another guy in Rylan’s unit.

Emma Holly’s upyr series.

I read “The Night Owl” in the anthology Hot Blooded and realized it was a series so I wanted to start from the beginning. The first is Catching Midnight and I’m really looking forward to it since it takes place in the Middle Ages (which I don’t see a lot) and I like some historical. Pubparlor did a review of the book here and I’d like to add my two cents in once I read and finish the book. Can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait!

Currently still going through the books in my Manga Madness and the Box post. I’m on volume 3 of Requiem of the Rose King and the prologue part is done. Now the real story begins.

Stay tuned for more of my randomness in the book forest!

NaNoWriMo 2016!!

NaNoWriMo_logo

 

I mentioned last year that November is National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo. What is it, you ask? For the whole month of November people challenge themselves to write a 50,000 word novel. You can sign up at their website, nanowrimo.com and keep track of your progress, get some useful tools that could help or connect with other writers.

NaNoWriMo starts November 1st and ends November 30th. For any writers looking to challenge and motivate themselves to write that novel they’ve been wanting to get to, this the perfect setup.

For all the writers out there looking to do this challenge officially and unofficially, best of luck and happy writing!!
