I love the everlasting and faithful love those two have - there is never any question they belong to each other, and the romance never dies through a lifetime of marriage, children, mummies, and sarcastic humor!(less)

When I do, it's a sign that I've gone wrong with the story; it tells me that I need to go back and rethink my plot direction. I used to have to throw out thousands of words to get the book back on track, but I've gotten better at listening to what the story wants and catching the problems before they develop into a block.(less)

Bonnie This is starting to sound familiar. Hmm. Now I'm not as excited to read it!

Alisa Kester Yup. Remember that Amber wasn't thrilled with it either?

Alisa Kester Too bad that I'm less excited about this series than I was. Book 2 just wasn't all that great.

I'll still read 3 though.

Dreamsbane of Tamalor by Bradley James Simpson


message 6: by Alisa

Alisa Kester I'd have to read the book it came from to be sure, but I would guess it's turned as in "made rotten". Much in the way that some parents don't want their kids to read comic books or fantasy.


Bonnie I was never sure about the meaning of the Alcott quote you added last. Do you think it means turned, as in influenced, or turned as in spoiled or made rotten? The latter would make sense in the context of the quote, but I've never before heard the word 'turned' used in that way.


Bonnie Nope, just my same old ring. This picture is actually a few months old, so definitely not my new ring. It's funny though, since it's a mirror shot, it looks like it's on my left hand.


Bonnie Thanks for the nice comment on my poem:) What is it about creepy fridge poetry anyway? Mine always turns out creepy, or slightly x-rated!


Bonnie Nice icon! You know, now that I look at it again, it DOES look like you around the eyes and jaw line...you must have been really tanned though, because in actuality you're almost as pale as me!
