My Book Reviews (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
0 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:30PM
Description: You may have noticed that all my book reviews are highly rated and wondered why. It's because I only recommend books I like. I don't write bad reviews because I know how hard it is to get published and I don't want my opinion to affect any writer in a negative way. So, now you know that if I said I liked something, I really did. That's how I roll. :)

“I wonder if I can get pizza in Avalon.”
Stacey O'Neale, Storm Born

“He pressed the blade of his sword into the ground. As he pulled his arm over his head for a stretch, a bead of sweat trickled down his neck and over a row of muscles on his stomach. I swallowed hard. The window's edge dug into my skin but I refused to move an inch. The tiny droplet disappeared into the waistband of his shorts. I had seen plenty of guys in gym class with their shirts off, but none of them looked like...that. He was physical perfection - a living work of art.

I sat on my knees with my chin relaxed on my crossed arms, unable to look away.

"Enjoying the view?" he said, eyes suddenly on me. His chiseled face wore an overly confident grin. Clearly he was used to being admired.

My cheeks burned.

I stood, pretending to check out the scenery. "Not much to see."

He raised an eyebrow, letting me know he knew I was full of crap.”
Stacey O'Neale, Storm Born

“You're into her. You're into the girl we came here to kill.”
Stacey O'Neale, The Shadow Prince

Anton Chekhov

“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.”
William Wordsworth

Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
