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!

Hey Blogger Buds!
For those of you who haven't seen it yet, the cover for FOREVER by Maggie Stiefvater is out!!!!
She just posted it around 3 hours ago, and it's so awesome!
The whole Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy has awesome covers.
SHIVER (Wolves of Mercy Falls #1)LINGER (Wolves of Mercy Falls #2)


Isn't it awesome? Time for a cover analysis...

  • It's going in to summer/fall now, so Christopher Stengel, the awesome designer, continued with the matching colors. Shiver, which took place in winter, was blue, Linger, for the spring, was green, and now Forever, which is awesome Autumn, is red!
  • In the first two books there was a blood stain over the I. I was wondering about that, since Forever has no I, and instead Christopher put it in the O, very tastefully.
  • I love the whole forest idea that's sort of framing the picture. Shiver shows mostly bare branches, and Linger shows lots of leaves. Now Forever shows something in between, as the leaves become a beautiful color outside our windows and begin to fall. Forever shows semi-bare trees.
  • Shiver depicted Sam-wolf. Linger depicted Grace-girl and what I think is Other-wolf, since Sam is human. Forever flips it around, showing us Grace-wolf and Sam-boy.
  • You can see the tension in the characters. Sam is slowly approaching Grace-wolf, and she's standing there, watching him carefully, her hackles up.
  • Red lettering! This goes without saying, but the final copy of the book is going to have red lettering, not boring black!
I'm done my squeeing now.
