As a kid, if I hated a book, I would rewrite the ending or offending scene to my liking. (I am such a dork, I know.) Then I realized that I could write original books of my own. Mind = blown!

Toni Morison has a great quote that explains on this:

'If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.'(less)

“The villains were always ugly in books and movies. Necessarily so, it seemed. Because if they were attractive—if their looks matched their charm and their cunning—they wouldn't only be dangerous.

They would be irresistible.”
Nenia Campbell, Horrorscape

“Happiness is such a fragile thing, isn't it? So easily burst, like a bubble blown by a child, and always on the verge of being carried away.”
Nenia Campbell, Endgame

“Once upon a time, there was a naïve and innocent girl who thought she could tame the beast and live happily ever after. But the beast did not want to be tamed, for he was a beast and beasts care not for such things, and the girl died along with her dreams.

From childhood's grave sprang a young woman, jaded before her years, who knew that beasts could wear the skins of men, and that evil could exist in sunlight, as well as darkness.

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.”
Nenia Campbell, Terrorscape

“Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.”
Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time

“Oh well... I'd just been thinking, if you had died, you'd have been welcome to share my toilet.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

“It starts so young, and I'm angry about that. The garbage we're taught. About love, about what's "romantic." Look at so many of the so-called romantic figures in books and movies. Do we ever stop and think how many of them would cause serious and drastic unhappiness after The End? Why are sick and dangerous personality types so often shown a passionate and tragic and something to be longed for when those are the very ones you should run for your life from? Think about it. Heathcliff. Romeo. Don Juan. Jay Gatsby. Rochester. Mr. Darcy. From the rigid control freak in The Sound of Music to all the bad boys some woman goes running to the airport to catch in the last minute of every romantic comedy. She should let him leave. Your time is so valuable, and look at these guys--depressive and moody and violent and immature and self-centered. And what about the big daddy of them all, Prince Charming? What was his secret life? We dont know anything about him, other then he looks good and comes to the rescue.”
Deb Caletti, The Secret Life of Prince Charming

edge of bubble GR suddenly stopped giving notifications for comments on the profile and I almost missed your wondrous rage review! I can't believe the nerve.

reading your review gave me the swears! my fist was rised to air and I was yelling that cunt to die.

and I'm so proud of you! the rage in your words is piercing!

☽Luna☾ Yay we are finally friends !

Thank you so much, I personally think I have awesome taste in books too ! I just saw ur an author ?! Awesome I'll have to read one of ur books this year <3

Sana  Khalid °¤° Hi, thanks for accepting! Can't wait to have bookish conversations with you. :)

message 891: by Diamond

Diamond Jones Welcome! I read a lot of Christian Fiction books with Amish Fiction being my fav. I also read urban, fiction, fantasy, and suspense. What about you?

message 890: by Anuradha

Anuradha And Tiny Hands still went on to impose the global gag order? How does he still have so many supporters?

I know! I saw some of the signs; Anya and I even discussed them, in fact. They were so clever!

message 889: by Anuradha

Anuradha Well, aren't we all allergic to a particular cheeto? ;)

I read all sorts of positive things about the march. And some of the signs, goddamn! They were positively splendid!

message 888: by Maraya21

Maraya21 Well that is the good thing about being genre handicapped: I can read anything. I don't look for/at the genre and say "oh i don't normally like that so what am i doing here on this book page?".
If i think there is a teeny tiny chance i might like it i will give it a shot.

Most, if not all, people are like that. Just because you like a genre or a particular author doesn't mean you're gonna like everything they write. Same principal goes to everything, art, music, anime, manga, clothes, shoes etc.

I think it is great that you don't like or like everything within a certain category. Leaves room for variety and diversity. The picky thing can also be good cause it means you have a knowledge about yourself and choose what suits you. Though when it is extreme it cuts out the variety/diversity above.

Fantasy was my first genre for exactly that reason, so much creativity and even diversity within the same idea (vampires, hunting, fae, magic etc).

I am half Greek, half Indian. When i was a child i spoke Hindu & English but since i was in Greece i needed to learn that as well. They told my mom i needed to drop the other two languages to be able to adapt & learn Greek. So even though i really liked looking at books i wasn't allowed to read in English or Hindu and i couldn't do it in Greek, yet anyway.

My very first book was Matilda which i read in Greek. I absolutely loved it! It was so close to home, with the bullying and mocking and all that. It took me time to finish it but when i did i realised how much i loved reading! A few others came after that when i was in my last years of high school, though i didn't read that much cause i always longed to read in English again, but i enjoyed the Greek translations too.

Again you're welcome. Though i seriously doubt you'll find anything remotely intriguing in my selves, but you're welcome to them none the less :D

P.S: Sorry i seem to have managed an essay here ^ somehow *sigh*

message 887: by Anuradha

Anuradha I see your profile photo. Much love and good luck! Make Cheeto McTinyhand regret every statement he's ever made.

message 886: by Maraya21

Maraya21 You are most welcome! ^_^

I am Genre handicapped tbh but it seems fantasy is kind of my thing. Mostly, actually all the time, I just see a book and i either read it or don't, sooo easy :3

Go on ahead! Most don't have a review cause i had been lazy lol so feel free to ask about any book in my shelves :D
Recommendations are welcomed as well!

message 885: by Angela

Angela Auten Ehhh, I probably will never use anything directly related to Amazon. I hate the Kindle tbh.

I use KDP, but I don't really like it as much as Nook Press which I feel is better. To each their own. Createspace is the only good thing that Amazon came up with.

message 884: by Angela

Angela Auten I mainly buy ebooks more though lol

I want to read the IMA, but they aren't in Nook Book format nor does Barnes and Noble have all the books either.

(As most people can tell I’m not a big Amazon fan though I sell on there.)

message 883: by Angela

Angela Auten Lol understandable. Paperbacks are amazing to hold.

I only order paper if they aren't in Nook Book format and I really want to read them. Lol

Angela Auten Hello! Thank you so much for accepting! :)
I see you read a lot of ebooks as well! Lol I have a lot of ebooks. Saves a lot of space in the house!

Thanks for accepting my friend invite! ^_^
Already compared books, not many in common (yet) and from them most you have read, unlike slowpoke me. Well i'll read pretty much anything though liking it is another story altogether.

Haven't read many books this month but the few i did & liked are the following:
- Skin Game (The Dresden Files #15) by Jim Butcher: Absolutely in love with this series
- Overtaken (The Warrior Chronicles #6) by K.F. Breene: Another absolute love here
- Queen Heir (NYC Mecca #1) by Jaymin Eve: Read you review of The Selection today and i would like to see what you think of this if you ever read it since both are about regency.
- The Awesome by Eva Darrows: Another book i would really like to see your opinion about. Like really!
- The Wizard's Heir by Devri Walls

After the above we go to last year were we have two fo my fav series:
- Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc. by Angela Roquet
- Solus Series by Devri Walls

I am blabbing! So sorry! I do have a favs shelf you can look if you're bored to read all the above ^_^

edge of bubble thank you for accepting my request!

it's a different kind of fun to talk to someone who didn't enjoy a book you really liked. and vice versa. I am happy to find another HR fan, can't wait to raid your shelves to broaden my horizons =p

Mary ~Ravager of Tomes~ Haha I know I was like omg she just followed me! But you're right Friendship > Following! :D I do believe I've seen your name floating around on my feed a few times anyway so this is perfect lol. & I don't blame you at all I am usually less active during week myself.

Jenny Haha, that's totally me! ;D Yup, it's Science-fiction. It's my first book by the author. His books always seemed very serious so I was hesitant in picking it up, but I'm really liking so far. Even if nothing is making sense :P I haven't read many of his books either, so really can't recommend or say much about them :) You read a lot of HR, right? I've seen many reviews of yours!

message 854: by Vaneesha

Vaneesha OH MY! One of my favourite authors of all-time is Greg Iles, his books are in the realm of psychological thrillers/suspense. I've noticed he doesn't have very good reviews on goodreads, but I really love his books, I've been reading them for YEARS. Blood Memory and Third Degree are my favourite stand-alone stories by him, but I also really love the Penn Cage series. I also recently read Kulti and The Wall of Winnipeg by Marianna Zapata and THEY STOLE MY HEART!

message 853: by Vaneesha

Vaneesha Hi Nenia, thank you for your comment! I am totally loving the IMA series, I just started book 3 and to be honest I've kind of given myself a bit of a headache with staring at a computer screen for so long. Makes me appreciate the amount of effort writers put into their books. I will be sure to let you know how I like the books you've favourited as soon as I make it through all the books you've written!! I just joined the romance group as well! This should be exciting! Thank you once again!

I was following you so I see all of your updates and we both comment on so many other people's reviews and statues that I didn't even realize we weren't already friends. I'm really excited to get into some of the buddy reads with the romance group. Hopefully I can get caught up on a few things and join the May read.
