The Bodyguard – Review

Confession time: I read this book in two days and accidentally stayed up until one AM… oops. I finished it though and that’s what’s important here… at least, that’s what I’m saying is important LOL. Ya’ll know the drill by this point: as a general rule, I review books based on four qualities: Dialogue, Exposition, […]

The Shadows Between Us – Review

As a general rule, I rank books based on four qualities: Dialogue, Exposition, Characters, and Overall Story. Dialogue: 5/5 The dialogue was very realistic and felt very realistic for the type of universe. It flowed nicely and everyone had a very distinct voice and way of speaking. Dialogue often gets overlooked in writing but in […]

His infant son is crying from […]

Tropes that Need to Stop #1

Hey, guys! It’s been a minute, thanks for sticking with my crazy, haha! Have you seen the Netflix show Carmen Sandiego? Well, viewers go through the whole show searching for her long-lost mother and, in one of the final scenes, we see Carmen finally meeting her mom, but we never see the woman’s face. We […]

The Perfect Playlist for Writers

Many writers I know struggle to find the perfect music for when they write, so I took the liberty of making a list of my favorite songs and albums. This is the music I use all the time and is almost entirely instrumental since I struggle listening to songs with lyrics while trying to focus […]

5 Books I Recommend

I’ll probably do one of these posts every once in awhile just to give you some interesting ideas for books I really like and think are of high literary quality. My goal is to mention the ones that people may not read as much and don’t get quite as much attention as they deserve. 5) Another […]
