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!

Friday Wrapup

 Hey Blogger Buds,
There was tons of exciting--and tragic--news posted this Friday. So for your viewing entertainment, I'm posting some of what I've discovered happened last week. If you have more updates, you're welcome to share them in the comments!

So let's get down to it...

I was ecstatic to find out about Maggie Stiefvater's fourth Shiver book. She posted the title and cover on her blog. It's a long wait till July 2012...

And then, I was overjoyed when Holly Black changed the title of the third Curse Workers book. This is soooo much better than Black Heart.

But my mood changed majorly and I almost cried when I found out what's happening in the Iron Knight, Julie Kagawa's fourth Iron Fey book.

*wipes away a tear*

But we all have to get past it, and to help, YA Highway brought us the latest news on the Hunger Games movie. The casting! Yayzez!
We've already got Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, but there's more! Gale is Alan Rickman, everyone's absolute favorite Potions Master, and Peeta Mellark is going to be played by Augustus Gloop, from Willy Wonka.
But my favorite one? The one that could not be beaten to the part of Effie Trinket?
Ms. Piggy.
Hunger Games cast
How ever will Katniss choose?

And by the way, I have discovered the genius that is Apple, also via YA Highway, though this one is courtesy of TechSplurge.
iPad vs Rock iPad vs Rock Comparison   Funny!
