[Thoughts & Rants] Unauthorized Biography of J.K Rowling




THE DAY I SWORE MY LOVE FOR J.K ROWLING 

Ok, so today I was at my normal rounds of blog hoping when I stumbled upon the tumblr page of Beth Revis (which I believe is a total Potter fan). I then saw a post saying that she watched the Unauthorized Biography of J.K Rowling and the inner Potter in me kicked in! I’m a self professed Potter fan since high school I’ve been reading the books and until now haven’t got a time to finish the series. But yeah and so I searched Youtube if there’s a video then I watched it. Then I got myself crying while watching it, I say if you haven’t watched you’ll know what I have to say. “WATCH IT NOW!” 

*In this TV Movie you’ll see the life of Joan Rowling, as child she was just a normal kid except her mind isn’t. She has a mother who is very sweet, a father who understands her and a sister who is always there for her no matter what. As a child she loves to read, which I believe is where she got her imagination. As a teenager she was wild she did crazy stuff with his best friend which she called a “Weasley”. Would you believe that she got declined from Oxford? But that didn’t stop her from dreaming big, she finishes her studies. On her way to a job interview she then came up with the idea of Harry Potter through her dream and started drafting/writing it. She landed on a decent writing company. But her boss feels the same way as she did, so he talked to her and said: 
“Your heart is in the right place, but you should be doing what makes you happy” 

And so she gave up her job as a writer, and then found a job at Portugal as an English teacher. Rough times come through her mother died because of sclerosis. She then met her husband and had a baby with him. But again life isn’t really perfect for Joan and her husband *forgot the name* due to unemployment he started drinking all day. She had it with him so she left Portugal and got back to Chepstow her birth place. With only the state funding her for a living and being unemployed she started to write Harry Potter and The Philosophers Stone with the push of her sister. It was magical! She wrote it while nursing her daughter. After she finished it her next goal is to get published so she started sending out her draft to agents, it was hard being an unknown author she got declined most of the time which is most likely to be because she’s just new. On her journey to get her books published she found another teaching job which compensates for their daily living. She found an agency in the name of Christopher. In no time found her a publishing company which is Bloomsbury. And you probably know what happened next…* 

It’s my first time seeing a TV Movie Biography and to start I didn’t expect it to be like this, going through the life of Joan is a big experience for me as a fan, I love Harry Potter and getting a chance to know what the writer experienced while writing it makes me relate. Watching this Biography has relived my Potter blood! I love Harry Potter and I can always say that I love the author who made it possible for creating such an EPIC book. For aspiring writers I recommend to watch this biography and make it an experience of your own. One great lesson for me while watching this Biography is to never give up! If you love writing then write, who knows where it might land you :)

Also if your a Potter fan you'll find this Biography full of facts about Harry Potter so you might want to check it out.

*This is based only on the Biography that I watched, it may vary from the real Biography*

[Blog Tour] Witchlanders by Lena Coakley

Witchlanders Blog Tour by


Falpian Character Interview

First off, to start this interview, how are you today, Falpain?

I am very well, thank you, and hope the great God Kar smiles on your endeavors.


What is your favorite memory growing up?

Oh, I have so many!  My childhood by the sea was a very happy one.  I suppose the happiest memories I have are the ones of playing on the sandbars with my brother.  We liked to watch the fishermen with their nets.  In those days, our father still thought we would have magical abilities, and so he had much more time for us.  Sometimes he sent our tutors away and came out with us onto the beach in his bare feet and taught us the names of all the creatures we found in the tide pools.  He would never do that now.


Do you love your father even if he thinks you’re a disappointment to him?

It is a hard thing to discover that your father never really loved you for who you are, just for who he thought you were.  It was something my brother couldn’t live with.  But yes.  I think even with everything that’s happened, I still love my father.  I’m not sure I want to be like him, though.


Do you miss your twin?

Terribly.  All those happy memories of the sea are tainted now.  Since my brother drowned, the sea always reminds me of him.

How is it living in Bitterlands?

I’m one of the lucky ones.  My family is an old one and we have money.  But the Bitterlands are so full of refuges from the war that the land cannot support us all.  The Witchlanders were stupid to think they could force so many of us onto these tracts of poor land without any repercussions.  Sometimes I hope another war does come, so we can take back what they stole.

Could you imagine living in a world without magic?

The great God Kar sings the world into being with his magic.  He is singing right now, and if he stopped for even a moment, you and I and everything around us would disappear.  The world is nothing but magic and so, no, I don’t think a world without magic could possibly exist.  It is an illogical question.  Maybe even a blasphemous one.

If you were given a chance to be another character in a book, who would it be and why?

I am by far the most intelligent, good looking, and interesting character in this book.  I hope this doesn’t sound like bragging.  It’s just that this book is full of all sorts of low, common and uneducated people—Ryder, in particular!  It really does make me wonder about the moral character of the author.  But she is a woman and cannot be expected to have the taste and intellect of a man.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Kar’s blessing to you.


About Witchlanders - goodreadsamazonB&NIndie Bound High in their mountain covens, red witches pray to the Goddess, protecting the Witchlands by throwing the bones and foretelling the future. It’s all a fake.At least, that’s what Ryder thinks. He doubts the witches really deserve their tithes—one quarter of all the crops his village can produce. And even if they can predict the future, what danger is there to foretell, now that his people’s old enemy, the Baen, has been defeated? But when a terrifying new magic threatens both his village and the coven, Ryder must confront the beautiful and silent witch who holds all the secrets. Everything he’s ever believed about witches, the Baen, magic and about himself will change, when he discovers that the prophecies he’s always scorned— Are about him.

[Review] Heavenly by Jennifer Laurens

Heavenly
by Jennifer Laurens
Paperback, 294 pages
Published August 15th 2009 by Grove Creek Publishing


I met someone who changed everything. Matthias. My autistic sister's guardian angel. Honest. Inspiring. Funny. Hot. And immortal. That was the problem. What could I do? I did what any other girl would do-I fell in love with him. Zoe's sister darts in front of cars. Her brother's a pothead. Her parents are so overwhelmed; they don't see Zoe lost in her broken life. Zoe escapes the only way she knows how: partying. Matthias, a guardian sent from Heaven, watches over Zoe's autistic sister. After Zoe is convinced he's legit, angel and lost girl come together in a love that changes destiny. But Heaven on Earth can't last forever.


-Goodreads

My thoughts?

While YA Paranormal-Romance novels don't tend to be very appealing to me, I love how this book isn't just the ordinary girl-meets-hot-guy-not-to-mention-he's-a-guardian story, but it has so much than that -- something really deeper that will change your life's point of view. I have to admit that only a handful of books moved me emotionally, and though this book may not be the best one to do such thing for me, I do appreciate the realizations this book has taught me.

It's amazing how this book felt so real and genuine. And when I say realization, I'm talking about how this book made me feel like the road to life might be tough, bumpy and full of challenges at times, but at the end of the day, despite all the complaints and grievance, we still have things to be thankful for no matter how big or small that we don't even notice. And Zoe's life isn't an exception. She might look like a typical teenager, but deep inside she carries an emotional baggage and pressure of dealing with her sister Abria with autism, and the negligence she feels from her parents because of each of them's responsibility of taking good care of her sister. Under this tough circumstances, don't we sometimes seek for a means of escape? Don't we sometimes want a space to breathe and let go of our problems, just for a second? I think we all do. 

And Zoe's escape is partying. While that might sound inappropriate and childlike, I admire Zoe. Despite wanting to release her anger and frustration brought by her difficult life, her love for her sister remains unconditional. I can totally imagine how sometimes you want to complain, but you just can't put it aside for the one general thing that she is your FAMILY. She's a part of you and you just can't take that away. Right? And it's not just Zoe I admire but their whole family. Their strong faith in each other didn't fail them in the end and it kept them going. Honestly speaking, the love story between Matthias and Zoe didn't push a strong impact for me, and the ending was a bit off. I'm just like drawn to the family unit more in the story, and it just kind of odd to think that Zoe had to go and leave her beloved family behind. I guess I'm not yet ready for that, but well...

In my opinion, I think books should be as realistic as this kind of novel as possible. It feels good to relate and learn something that you can actually apply in reality, and this book didn't fail.

[Blog Tour] Blood of The White Witch by Lacey Weatherford



Blood of The White Witch
by Lacey Weatherford

Book Excerpt




I was done with eating my breakfast when the instructor finally finished warming up with Vance andhe stepped to face Douglas on the mat. Suddenly, Iwished I hadn’t eaten at all as a case of the nervousbutterflies attacked my stomach.
Vance dropped his protective mask into place, lifted his foil and waited. Douglas stepped forward andbegan the attack, thrusting in a forward motion. Vancemoved backward in reaction, parrying against Douglas’sfoil at the appropriate times.
I found myself biting at my lower lip, and I could hear Fiona chuckle lightly beside me when Douglascontinued to force Vance farther backward down thelong mat. I began to wonder if Vance was toooverwhelmed to even remember what he was supposedto do. Suddenly Vance lunged forward, catchingDouglas off guard, landing the tip of his foil squarelyagainst Douglas’s chest, registering a point.
Douglas lifted his mask and looked down at his chest in complete shock, and I couldn’t help the grinthat spread across my face as I watched.
“Point to Mr. Mangum,” the instructor called out.
The two men walked back to the center of the mat and began once again. It soon became clear Vance wasallowing Douglas to beat him back while he studied hismoves when he landed another point in similar fashion.
Douglas didn’t remove his mask this time, but Icould tell he was not very happy by the way he strodeback to the center of the mat, abruptly lifting his foil as hewaited for Vance to join him.
This time, however, Vance was the one who attacked, and he successfully forced Douglas backward. Theirweapons clashed loudly together, sending the sound ofclinking metal throughout the room.
“I’ve never seen anything like this,” Fiona said, her eyes dancing as she watched with her hands clasped in delight.
“The boy is a natural.”
It was clear Vance’s extreme speed was giving him a definite advantage. Douglas fought desperately to keep upwith him, and in the end they both thrust at the same time,landing equal blows on each other’s chests.
They lifted their helmets, laughing together, and the instructor said it appeared that Douglas landed the pointfirst, barely.
Douglas clapped Vance on the back before pulling his mask off his sweat-drenched head. Vance followed suit, andthe two of them made their way over to the table while theinstructor gathered up the weapons.
“What do you think of our grandson this morning?”Douglas asked Fiona as he sat down at the table. Vancecame to kiss me on the cheek before he sat down as well.
“I think you’d better be careful or you may find yourself run through,” she replied with a laugh. “I’ve never seenanything like it.”
“Me either,” Douglas replied. “I was really sweating it out there!”
“So I can see,” Fiona replied wryly as she waved herhand back and forth in front of her face lightly, scrunchingher nose up slightly. “You’re a mess!”
“Blame it all on this one,” Douglas replied, reachingover to squeeze Vance’s shoulder.
Vance was beaming, thoroughly enjoying himself.
“You’re giving me too much credit,” he replied modestly with a slight shake of his head. “I’m just as sweaty asyou are, and you landed the last point.”
“True, but there were three points, remember?  That means you’re the currently the victor,” Douglasreplied. “Now let’s enjoy some breakfast with ourlovely company, and then we’ll hit the mat again.”
“That sounds like a good plan,” Vance agreed with a grin, and he reached to fill his plate.
I watched him as he moved, thinking he looked like a gorgeous mess with his flushed face and sweaty hair,clothed in the white garment. If he worked out like thisevery day, he would certainly have me as a captiveaudience for every minute of it. My eyes practicallydevoured every inch of him.
“Portia,” his voice suddenly penetrated into the thoughts in my head. “You’ve got to quit staring at melike that. You’re making my grandmother blush.”
My eyes quickly flickered over toward Fiona who was indeed watching me with avid interest, and Iquickly cast my gaze down into my lap, feeling the flushcreep into my own skin.
Vance chuckled out loud at this, and I kicked him under the table, mortified at his reaction. He leanedover and kissed my cheek once more.
“Don’t worry, baby,” he whispered into my ear.
“It’s all good.” He winked as he pulled away from me, and I could tell he was totally enjoying my reaction tohim … again.

[Blog Tour] The Vampire's Curse by S.J. Wright



THE VAMPIRE’S CURSE
By S.J. Wright


“Let me introduce myself.  I am Theodora.”  There was regality in that voice.  It was impossible to deny that this woman was quite powerful.  Just the quiet dignity of the way she sat was enough to prove that point.  She held herself as a queen might.
“It’s nice to meet you.”  I replied, still not able to look her in the face.  Fear was still rising inside me.
“You are afraid.”  She said lightly.  “There’s no reason for that, my dear.  I have no intention of doing you any harm.”
 “Are you a vampire?”
She nodded and smiled a little sadly, “Yes, I am.  But probably not the kind you might expect.”
“There are different kinds of vampires?”  This was news to me.
Waving a pale hand, she shook her head, “We’ll not delve into those matters at this point.  Let us discuss your current role.”
I considered her statement and the situation as a whole.  I was in an unfamiliar place with a very dangerous stranger who had just admitted to being a vampire.  Anger ignited inside me like a bright fire.
“Let’s just cut through the bullshit, okay?”  I demanded.
Her expression went from benevolence to pure shock in an instant.  Her ebony eyes widened, and her lips opened.
I leaned towards her, “I don’t know what you want from me.  But you haven’t given me any indication of who you really are, and I’m getting tired of being the last one to know what the hell is going on with all this vampire crap.”

[Blog Tour] Shades of Gray by L.M. Pruitt

GUEST POST

What makes for an intriguing character? Is there a special formula to create the perfect character, one every reader can connect with, can enjoy reading about, can care about? If there is, it’s carefully guarded, with a rigorous application process. Or someone lost it. Character traits, the good or bad of them, are entirely subjective. Some people love when the heroine is a little beat down, a little mousy; other people would throw the book across the room. Some don’t believe a woman should curse as virulently as a man, others would find it strange if a twenty or thirty-something didn’t curse even a little bit. Readers may love the heroine to be strong, independent, or they may find it off-putting, depending on which generation they themselves were born into. In short, you’re never going to please every single reader. You may not even please half. But that doesn’t mean you’ve failed in making a character intriguing. In fact, I’d say you’re on the right path. Interest doesn’t come from a universal sameness of opinion. Interest comes when people can’t agree. Who wants to read something if everyone is going to think the exact same thing, answer the questions in the exact same way, feel the exact same way? I can tell you, I don’t want to read something everyone agrees on – sounds like a total bore. But the book with at least two camps? Now we’re headed somewhere. The same applies to characters. I like to read – and write – about women who are strong and stubborn and feisty, but break. Women who hate as passionately as they love. Women who can put a bullet in a person and then turn around and comfort a child. Someone who will curse out the President and then go in the bathroom and cry where no one can see her. Do they maybe have things a little easier? Maybe. But if you play in the world long enough, you’ll see that those types of people usually do, because they make their life easier. It doesn’t make them less flawed, it just makes them lucky. Intriguing characters, intriguing women, will always divide readers. But maybe, just maybe, they’ll unite other people.

[Blog Tour] Indian Summer by Emily Cale




Indian Summer Book Excerpt



“Um, Jai?” He made a noise to indicate that he was listening. “The snakes out here, are they poisonous?”

“Only a couple of them. You only really have to worry about kraits. They are very poisonous, but they are usually nocturnal, so we don’t have to worry.” She swore she could hear her heart beating.

“These kraits, do they have stripes?” Her voice sounded high pitched. Any part of her outfit that wasn’t already drenched in sweat before definitely was now. Training told her not to make any sudden movements and to remain calm, but it still took every bit of self-control she could muster to keep from running. Jai must have picked up on the urgency in her voice because he started walking toward her. She put a hand up to stop him. As much as she longed to have his strong body gripping her again, there was no reason to put him in danger.

“Don’t make any sudden movements.”

She rolled her eyes. He really did think she was new to the field. If she had been the type to make a sudden movement, she would have done it when she first saw the snake, not minutes later.

“Is it moving away?”

Cara shook her head. Her whole body was shaking and it wasn’t from dehydration. Spiders and rodents she was fine with, but snakes freaked her out. She had only ever seen one before, and that one wasn’t poisonous. It also hadn’t been this close. “Nope, it isn’t going anywhere.” Closing her eyes, she tried to remember the words to a poem she had memorized back in high school. It was a technique she used to calm herself down, usually when turbulence got too rough. Right now, it didn’t seem to do her any good.

“You’re going to have to move then.” She swallowed hard. He was right, but she wasn’t convinced her legs would be able to make the movement. Inching her right foot backward, she used her toe to make sure the ground behind her was solid. The snake moved. She froze. It had only moved a fraction of an inch, but she was convinced that it was in reaction to her own movement.

Rocks crackled as Jai approached her. She knew she should tell him to stay away. It would be bad enough if she was bitten, but if they both got bitten it would be worse. Besides, if one of them was going to face the snake it had better be her. She had no idea how to drive his manual car or where the nearest hospital was. She would wind up sitting out there trying to get the car to start while watching him die. Still, it made her feel better to know that he was close by. She closed her eyes again and tried to find the courage to take another step. The longer she just stood there, the more her legs felt like they would never move again. Plus, she couldn’t just stand there all night.

In a flash of khaki, Jai came running past her carrying a huge stick. In one fluid movement, he lifted the krait onto the end and flung both the snake and the branch far off into the grass. She watched as her nightmare sailed through the air.

[Review] Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles

Leaving Paradise
by Simone Elkeles


Papeback, 303 pages
Published: April 1st 2007
Publisher: Flux


Nothing has been the same since Caleb Becker left a party drunk, got behind the wheel, and hit Maggie Armstrong. Even after months of painful physical therapy, Maggie walks with a limp. Her social life is nil and a scholarship to study abroad—her chance to escape everyone and their pitying stares—has been canceled.

After a year in juvenile jail, Caleb’s free . . . if freedom means endless nagging from a transition coach and the prying eyes of the entire town. Coming home should feel good, but his family and ex-girlfriend seem like strangers.

Caleb and Maggie are outsiders, pigeon-holed as "criminal" and "freak." Then the truth emerges about what really happened the night of the accident and, once again, everything changes. It’s a bleak and tortuous journey for Caleb and Maggie, yet they end up finding comfort and strength from a surprising source: each other.

-Goodreads

My Thoughts:

Maggie fears the return of the one person that she hates the most, the person who’s responsible for her accident. Caleb Becker is happy to go home in Paradise after being in juvenile for over a year for a hit and run drunk driving that caused Maggie her limp. Both of them are out cast now in their school, will they find themselves in the midst of their difference? 

It’s a done deal! Simone Elkeles is now one of my favorite authors! Leaving Paradise for me is a master piece of a story, a story that will stay to you after you finish it. A story that is so great that you may wish that it will last forever. The story of Caleb and Maggie is a story that left me breathless while reading it, a one of a kind book that you should not dare to miss. It captured my heart the moment I read it and while finishing it it has left me breathless! A Wonderfully written story with characters that is so compelling you won’t stop reading it. It made me feel different kinds of emotion while reading it. I cannot express more how I like this book; it’s a story about redemption, hope and love. Definitely worth reading. 

Maggie and Caleb are such strong characters and that what I really like best. They fought all the stares of people looking down on them because of what happened. They have family problems, friend’s issues and a lot more to deal with but they overcome it all. All the characters are beautifully created; Mrs. Reynolds specifically is one of them. She is one woman that reminds me of my grandmother. I admire her because of her wisdom and with all the wise words that she told Maggie. She brought Maggie and Caleb together, she gave Caleb a chance in spite of what he’s had done to Maggie. 

Simone Elkeles has created a book that is hard to forget, a story that will stay with me forever. This story has a special mark in my heart now. This is one book that made me cry and cry the moment it finished and it rarely happens. Read it and I swear you won’t be disappointed.
