Books I ReadThe Alchemyst by Michael Scott
I really didn't like this book, so I'm not exactly sure to whom I would recommend it.
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Recommended to anyone who likes books that make you cry, character-driven stories, romance, and stories told through an interesting format (half of the book is told through the eyes of the main character, Mia, as she walks around the hospital in a ghostlike state).
The Girl Who Was On Fire by Leah Wilson
Recommended to anyone who likes The Hunger Games, anthologies, and companion guides.
Coffee at Luke's: An Unauthorized Gilmore Girls Gabfest by Jennifer Crusie
Recommended to anyone who likes "Gilmore Girls," anthologies, quick reads, and companion guides.
Darth Vader and Son by Jeffrey Brown
Recommended to anyone who likes "Star Wars," quick reads, and cute picture books.
Recommended to all writers. This book was a fantastic help to me, not only with actually writing of my novel, but with editing, querying, and understanding what exactly agents and editors do.
Movies I Watched
"My Big Fat Greek Wedding"4/5
Recommended to anyone who likes simple stories, has large, extended families, and likes to laugh.
"The Amazing Spider-Man"3.5/5
Recommended to anyone who likes superheroes and action-filled movies.
Recommended to anyone who likes animated movies, action-filled stories, and likes to laugh. This movie reminded me a lot of "How to Train Your Dragon."
"What About Bob?"4/5
Recommended to anyone who likes simple stories, likes to laugh, and quirky characters.
Quotes I Wrote
“Hmm,” Celeste said, chewing on her lip. “See, that’s something I can’t cut out of my life. Can’t I stop, I don’t know, cleaning my room, instead? That would be a much easier way to save time.”
Obsessions I Acquired"Parenthood." My mom and I are zipping through this show, and I love it! :)
"Torchwood." A fantastic "Doctor Who" spinoff, though I'd definitely recommend it to older kids who have a higher tolerance for violence.
"When We Were Young" by Lucy Schwartz. I actually prefer this theme song to the other one "Parenthood" used. :) I think it fits the overall mood of the show better.
