    It’s unusual for a nonfiction book for teens to sound so riveting from the get-go: Alice and Freda were two nineteenth-century teenagers who happened to be in love. When the standards of the day kept them apart, perhaps not unexpectedly, Alice murdered Freda. I mean, come on. That’s a story that begs to be told, and I’m surprised that Alexis Coe’s account of their relationship, Freda’s demise, and the resulting trial is the first I’ve ever heard of it.

    I have played Quidditch. Yes indeed. At LeakyCon 2014, I put a broom between my legs and played Chaser in the LeakyCon vs. Harry Potter Alliance Quidditch match. I understood the concept of Quidditch before that point. I had a vague idea of the rules. But until I played in that grueling 20 minute match, I had absolutely no idea how much physical exertion is involved in the game. Quidditch is a marathon sport. You don’t stop ’til you drop, or until someone catches the snitch, and playing the game myself gave me so much more respect for those who do it professionally. And so…

It gives me a certain satisfaction to say what I thought happened and to tell other people that because I would like my version to be the official version still – even though I’ve not written it in a book – because it’s my world.” (J.

    This is the second part of my review of The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen.  My first part of the review was posted here.  I was trying to have a professional tone to impress Harper Collins and our webmistress, but I made an error.  The novel has three “Books”, not two; and there are fourteen chapters, not twelve.  Also, I must add that the novel has a lot of adult content and adult language. As noted in the first review, The Queen of the Tearling is about Kelsea Raleigh who was raised in hiding after the death of her mother, Queen Elyssa.  She grew up in a cottage in the…

There's no need to bundle, there's plenty of shore and seeing room for everyone who wants to see the grand finale; the great firework show. The only lights present are those of torches spred evenly to prevent everyone from bumping into each other but nothing else in an effort to make the firework show as spectacular as possible. The heating charms are still in place however the little chill at the end of the day can still be felt. Hope you dried properly if you'd taken part in…

This year the Prefects have decided to make use of one of Hogwarts' biggest and best commodities; the black lake. No need to worry about catching a cold in the late winter weather as several heating charms have been placed over the area and drying spells will be applied after. The only thing you have to worry about is having fun--and not drowning, that's not allowed and you may be expelled for such an act. You've been warned. Care for a bit of water skiing?

Real fire comes out of its nostrils, and smoke from its charcoal-filled belly, which also serves as the barbecue pit. If you’re not into sports, and would rather show off some master chef skills, the giant and unique grills are ready for some serious cooking! In between the fire-breathing dragons are two tables laden with fresh and seasoned raw slabs…

The chasers attempt to throw a volleyball (quaffle) through one of three hoops for 10 points, while the beaters fire other volleyballs (bludgers) at them and the keepers (goalies) guard the hoops. The seekers, of course, try to catch the snitch, who is a runner dressed in yellow with a tennis ball-filled sock tucked in his waistband. All players use one hand (due to holding a broomstick between…

    “Read widely in your genre.” “Make sure you know what’s current in your genre.” “Read books from the past year or two to spot trends in your genre.” I see this advice all over the place, especially from agents. Mostly, I ignore it. I want to do better about reading newer books in 2015, but I ignore it with good reason. Remember how Picasso said you have to know the rules before you break them? I know them. I break them anyway. This year, I’ve read 42 books so far, so it’s not like I don’t read. Instead of reading a ton of newly…
  • How Much Does Presentation Influence Perception in the Harry Potter Series?

    One of the things I do when I read books is I try to view the story from a different perspective. Sometimes this involves a shift from first person narration to third person narration or vice versa. At other times, I pick a different character and imagine if the story were being told with that character as the protagonist. The presentation certainly seems to influence how the story and characters are perceived. How would the story be different if it were told from the perspective of a character other than the main character? How would the reader’s perceptions of events and characters…

But I didn’t even need to spend twenty minutes picking a soundtrack song, like I do to set the mood for most scenes with a high emotional charge. I just committed a quick literary murder and ambled off to make lunch. Now, with the inky blood drying on my hands, I wonder how it could be so straightforward. Maybe it’s because I’d planned this character’s demise from the beginning,…
