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!

Summer Reads Sunday (4)

Hey Blogger Buds!
It's SRS time! Harry Potter Youtube Linkage Ahead.
Summer Reads Sunday is a meme I'm hosting throughout the summer, in which you showcase books you're reading. I decided to create the meme since people usually have more time to read during summer vacation.

What I plan to read this summer: Part 1 Part 2

Last Week I Planned To Read
Original Sin by Lisa Desrochers
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs
Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard
Rival by Sarah Bennett Wealer
Viola in the Spotlight by Adrianna Trigiani

Last Week I Read
Original Sin by Lisa Desrocher

Right Now I'm Reading
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

My Thoughts
1) Original Sin had some disappointing and predictable bits, but it seriously blew my mind. 4 stars
2) Anna and the French Kiss is absolutely amazing. There are barely any negative reviews, and it's so cute and hysterical! There were so many scenes during which I had to stop, I was laughing so hard.
3) I know, I know, I'm terrible! The thing is, I've been writing before going to sleep recently, so that invades on my reading time and I'm insanely behind in my massive stack I wanted to plow through this summer.

This Week I Plan To Read
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs
Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard
Rival by Sarah Bennett Wealer
Viola in the Spotlight by Adrianna Trigiani

Other Things I'm Planning This Week: Harry Potter Style!
1) Youtube! I finished A Very Potter Musical, and I need to finish A Very Potter Sequel. I also need to watch the Harry Potter Friday Parody until I have the lyrics memorized. Then it's time to wander around Youtube, finding other great videos, like:
Hallows (Harry Potter Parody of Halo by Beyonce) (This girl is amazing: "This is gonna hurt more than when Snape killed Dumbledore...I feel like Voldemort because my soul's being torn apart.)
Gandalf Vs. Dumbledore (Epic Rap Battles of History #11) (Warning: It's a bit colorful and mature.)

2) Food! Last Friday I made some HP-inspired food. Needless to say, my inner master-chef is keeping her status as "inner"...indefinitely. I made Mulled Mead and Treacle Fudge. Well, the Mead had a typo, apparently, and was Mussed [Up] Mead and I kind of fudged the Treacle Fudge. But I want to try some more recipes, and I didn't have time to pick up ingredients on Friday, so I'm going at it again! Next up: Butterbeer and maybe Seven Horcux Cupcakes (though they look really complicated). Thank you MuggleNet, for the recipes found HERE.

3) Non-HP (sorry): I plan to start putting together my schedule for August. :D I'm still looking for guest posts!


  1. Wow - you're really into the Harry Potter thing. I think I should check out the Harry Potter the musical :)

    Anyway - I tried to leave a link for my e-mail, but it wouldn't work for some reason.

    Here's my e-mail add - marycampbell1975(at)gmail(dot)com

  2. Treacle fudge sounds like it would be great. Too bad you fudged it up - probably a bad recipe. Glad you're loving Anna!
    Also, thanks for letting me know about the spoilers for Iron Queen in my review. I changed the allies part because I agree that it's spoilery. I left in the Paul part, because it doesn't seem like that big a deal to the ultimate plot (at least not to me), but added a warning at the top of my review. Thanks for the feedback!
