Welcome! I'm Riv Re, teenager and aspiring author. I post Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Tuesdays are for book reviews; Thursdays are for a weekly meme called "Character Dolls," which showcases character depictions I made online; and on Sundays I just wing it.
This blog is for my writing misadventures, my reviews, ramblings, and rants. My favorite genre is fantasy, so expect a lot of the unusual.

Warning: I've got an awful sense of humor. Don't blame me if you keel up and die from reading the jokes I crack.
Notice: I hold no responsibility for any deaths caused by previously mentioned jokes.

Enjoy and happy reading!

Catchup Week: Barnes and Noble and TS3 Visit

Hello my bloggy friends,
So, I've got a lot I need to tell you about. I have book reviews, packages, pictures, and a little trip to B&N to blog about, so this week (minus Sunday and Tuesday) is dedicated to my updates.
Monday: Barnes and Noble Visit (and Toy Story 3)
Wednesday: Packages + Pictures
Thursday: Tyger Tyger Review
Friday: Break Review
Saturday: Hopefully I'll have an MM (Midway Mention) by this time.


Last Friday, I went with my sister, T, and one of my brothers, E (E and T Re!), to see Toy Story 3. It was the epitome of all Disney movies. In some places you cry, in others you laugh. We didn't get to see 3D, but it was worth it anyways. It started off with this genius scene, and then it got better and better. The whole thing was very climactic, with a bittersweet ending.
After TS3, we went down the block to Barnes and Noble. I didn't buy anything and I don't have any pictures, but I saw some interesting books.
There were two tables dedicated to recently released teen reads. (Links go to B&N) Among them I saw:
Shiver (which I caressed a bit)
Forgive My Fins (don't forget my GIVEAWAY)
And then I browsed the teen shelves, and some books caught my attention.
In the Twilight section, one book caught my eye in particular. I saw the words "Bella Should Have Dumped Edward" and I immediately wanted to pick it up. Full title: Bella Should Have Dumped Edward: Controversial Views on the Twilight Series
My sister picked up Happyface, and bought it. I am soooo stealing borrowing this from her.

The teen books were all on the second floor. My favorites I saw near on the ground floor.
I saw the Nook, and stared longingly at it.
And I saw two that were interesting.

Hope you enjoyed this ultra book-filled post!

  1. Wish we had a real bookstore...

  2. I once owned a bookstore. My fantasy is to make enough with my books to build the bookstore for booklovers. A CHEERS type establishment with leather chairs and rows upon rows of the obscure and the fantastic. Roland

  3. Hey Riv,
    I was wondering if you have a way I can link to your blog here like Lala does so I can promote your blog on mine?
    (I'm going to have a way to link to my own blog very soon...whenever Lala can make the link. Thanks:D)
    Happy writing,

  4. Nice big bookstores are one of the things I miss the most about America.
