Paranoia, is That You?

Ever since I convinced my mom to read the River of Time series by Lisa T. Bergren back in 2012 and we some of the other's favorite books, we trust each other.  When it comes to books, if my mom tells me to read a book or thinks that I'll like it, I'll give it a … Continue reading Paranoia, is That You?

Boy Meets Girl, Girl Murders People

Following my discovery of Young Adult novels back in 2010, I spent the next couple of years reading and rereading Diane Duane's Young Wizards series and whatever Holly Black and Rachel Caine book I could get my hands on.  I recall having just finished a book about a fae disguised as a human when the spine … Continue reading Boy Meets Girl, Girl Murders People

Rooms, Rooms. Too Little Room.

In accordance to my usual ritual when reading books I know I'll like, it took me awhile to actually sit down and read.  Since 2015, when the local library first got the book, to be exact.  After checking it out at least five times and reading the first twenty pages over and over again, I decided … Continue reading Rooms, Rooms. Too Little Room.

Rooms

For the past several weeks, I've been milking Lauren Oliver's Rooms.  In the midst of a chapter I found myself struck by the elusive muse and, following her prompting, scribbled down this poem.  I hope you enjoy it.  (On another note, I've changed my site's url, so now it's aweebiteccentric.  I've done this because I feel … Continue reading Rooms

Nightmare Hours

All the creatures come at night, Racing, chasing against the light. And until the dawn comes o'er the damned, We shall be bracing ourselves For the nightmare that be our lives.
