Fahrenheit 451

Hey Reader, Merry Christmas! Today’s the last day of our book review and tips… day ten of ten. I like writing things like this, but I think I’m better at going into more relatable problems in writing. Since I’m editing, this was sort of way to go back and check on all of our stories. By looking at things in…

Parallel Journeys

Hey Reader, I read Parallel Journeys by Eleanor Ayer in middle school as a summer reading assignment, and back then I didn’t really appreciate it as much as I should have, but now I can see how this is a prime example for writing tips. Now, I see how genius it is and actually want to reread it. This is…

13 Reasons Why

Hey Reader, Can you believe that this is book 8 out of 10 for writing tips? We’re almost done, and then back to normal writing posts! I’ve had so much fun reviewing these books and pulling tips from them… I’ve actually gotten into a habit of making mental notes about writing while I pleasure-read. It’s a writer thing. And a…

The Hunger Games

Hey Reader, Yes, I picked┬áThe Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It has a ton of great writing tips in it, and even four or so years after it came out, it is still extremely popular. When I first read it, I actually read the entire trilogy in three days, not stopping to do anything else. The story was amazing, of…

The City of Bones

Hey Reader, Today’s book for writing tips is The City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. This book is young adult fantasy, but it isn’t overdone. It isn’t some kind of repeat of every vampire love story or magic school. Honestly, the story captivated me from the beginning and I loved the development of the characters and world. I actually am…

Fangirl

Hey Reader, So today’s tips on writing will be based on Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I recently read this book and it is still stuck in my head because of how honest and clever it is. As always, the Goodreads links will be at the end. Fangirl is about a girl named Cath who is going into college with her…

The Naturals

Hey Reader, For this post, I’m going to be using The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes as an example. This book is captivating and intriguing, pulling me in until the very end. Barnes has a twisted angle to tell her story and it all connects in the end. I read it in one sitting, and all I can say is…

The Darkest Minds

Hey Reader, Holiday special! Actually, a two week long holiday special! For the next two weeks of blogs, I will be writing a different kind of blog post… don’t worry. It’s still about writing. And reading. I will be writing a book review each day. But not a typical book review. I’m pretty much going to be choosing a new…
