Writing Prompt Wednesday!

It’s the middle of summer and you know what that means! Well, it can mean anything, from reading, to writing, to movies, to food! Write about one or more of the following:

-summer horror

-summer romance

-barbecue

-a nostalgic moment

-fireworks

-ice cream

You can mix and match if you want; whatever gets those creative juices flowing. Or just write about summer in general. Whatever it means for you. Good luck and happy writing!

 

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!

Writing Prompt Wednesday!

Halloween’s over (booo!) but if you’re Latino, Día de Muertos has begun! For any who don’t know, Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead is a two-day holiday (Nov. 1 & 2) originating in Mexico where people honor their dearly departed loved ones. For more info, check it out here.

Anyways, here’s a twofer for you! You can pick either of the two prompts or do both, it’s up to you. You can’t even combine the two (le gasp! Bold)!

-Use the this image in your Day of the Dead story: a road of marigold petals.

-Write a story using the five senses to describe  the season of Autumn.

Good luck and happy writing!!
