Nenia Campbell was born and raised in the United States. From infancy, she was fond of books- especially the cardboard ones; they were the most delicious. As she grew older, she learned that 'devouring a book' was a phrase not to be taken literally. As a result, she became a very enthusiastic reader. When she discovered that the stories she wanted to read did not exist she became an enthusiastic writer, as well.

She hopes that you have a lovely day.

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)

" :D "
Nenia ♥ The Armchair Librarian ♥ is on page 112 of 464 of The Queen of the Tearling: I just got to book II. Only about 200 pages left in my edition. So far, I'm not very impressed. Pacing is very slow and there is nothing to set this apart from other fantasy novels I have read. It seems to have borrowed heavily from male fantasy authors such as Goodkind.

Tadiana ♕Part-Time Dictator♕
Tadiana ♕Part-Time Dictator♕ is 68% done with Jane Eyre: I care for myself.  The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself.  I will keep the law given by God; sanctioned by man. Laws and principles are not for the times when there is no temptation: they are for such moments as this, when body and soul rise in mutiny against their rigour. If at my individual convenience I might break them, what would be their worth?

“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

“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

I know what it is to want something that could destroy you.

Garrison Keillor

“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

“Your name is a golden bell hung in my heart. I would break my body to pieces to call you once by your name.”
Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

“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

Wendy Darling Hi Pikachu, thanks for the friendvite! With 422 books in common, it looks like we'll have a lot to talk about. :)

Oh dear! I only just saw this - I didn't know you could comment on profiles.

What can I say? Your reviews always struck me as particularly polite and classy, and since we seem to see eye-to-eye on a lot of books (at least, judging from what's been popping up in my feeds), it'll be cool to see your input on what's hot and what's not.

By-the-bye - I just finished reading The Shadow of the Wind. When I reviewed it, that stalker feed thingy below the book mentioned you had it marked as to-read. It's amaziiiiiiing.

That is all. :)

☠Thesie† Hey thanks for adding me, like ur profile picture

Aww, thank you kindly! Your avatar is really pretty, too!

It's fun to make up wacky shelf names, isn't it? :D

Anzu The Great Destroyer I just wanted to let you know that you are being stalked.

By me.

Your reviews are fascinating!

Gahhh! So sweet. I'm blushing. o^___^o

As a fellow stalker, that means a lot. I really like your reviews, too!


The Holy Terror Ha, thanks. I'm not always that hilarious though, unfortunately. You've been forewarned!

Livvy hi! You're welcome. Is Pikachu your name or shall I just call you by it anyway? :) I look forward to reading more reviews from you soon!

message 10: by Kruti

Kruti Pikachu thanks for the add :). Can't wait to discuss books with you. Also, what should I call you? If people find out I'm talking to a Pokemon...well the mental hospital is most likely going to get a new patient lol.

message 11: by Kruti

Kruti Haha, don't worry I'll keep you company :). Who knows we might even find some Pokemons lurking there. Also, book-creeping is totally in right now :D. I noticed you've read Wither and Matched - how did you find them? I've still got to read them.

message 12: by Sherry

Sherry The awkward moment when pikachu comments on your profile hahahahahahaha.

April Trashy? Nah, not at all! I love some of the books you have listed anyway. I feel I'll probably use your book list to explore new genres for myself too and I love your reviews -(I should probably stop being a kissass now). Oh and yes, I'm also addicted to the walking dead - it's amazing. I can't wait for Walktober. ;)

Kat (Lost in Neverland) Mine is Umbreon too! Though I love all of them. :P
Haha, that's so cute. I had a similar situation when I watched a movie about tigers when I was 7, and ever since then, they've been my favorite animals.

message 31: by Kat (Lost in Neverland) (last edited Aug 10, 2012 08:26PM)

Kat (Lost in Neverland) THAT SOUNDS AWESOME! I need that book now. When I clicked on The Tiger, I was brought to a book called The White Tiger, which sounds cool too. I'll definitely check those out.

Creator I am going to stalk strongly pursueyou now, because it's not stalking if you are good looking . I mean have you seen me ? Oh yeah ... you haven't ...

message 33: by Creator

Creator Yay ! You could be my Bella . And I could be your Edward ! And I could watch you sleep . And leave you , And come back when a sexy dog tries to become your new boyfrien . Then I could impregenate you with a demon baby ! Then turn you into a bloodsucking mosquito thus riping you away from your friends and family ! If that doesn't smell like happily ever after (forever) then what does ?

Stefani - SpelingExpirt Hi Pikachu! Thanks for stopping by, I've always wanted to be a friend with a Pokemon.

message 48: by Dija

Dija Hey, Pikachu! Thanks for accepting! :) Legend's amazing and one of my favorite dystopians out there. From what I've heard, it only gets better with the next book, so that's definitely a change from the other dystopians that've been so disappointing with their sequels (*coughInsurgentcough*).

When do you plan on starting it?

message 49: by Dija (last edited Sep 22, 2012 10:54AM)

Dija I'll be stalking your profile then, to see when you finally start it. ;) I REALLY hope you love it! And then you can join the rest of us in the agonizing wait for the sequel. XD

It wasn't really bad, just really disappointing. I still have hopes for the ending though.

What's the most recent book you've rated 5 stars?

message 50: by Zoë

Zoë Thanks for accepting my friend request! :D Looking forward to interacting with you and sharing books.
