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 (5)

Hey Blogger Buds,
This is actually going to be a SRS for the next MONTH. I know, this meme was short-lived, but I won't be able to read too much while I'm away, and I definitely won't be able to post. On Tuesday I'm going to give you guys more info on what's happening in the next month.

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 often have more time to read during summer vacation. You're welcome to participate! Just let me know.

Last Week I Planned 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

Last Week I Read
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Rival by Sarah Bennett Wealer
Viola in the Spotlight by Adrianna Trigiani

Right Now I'm Reading
Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard

My Thoughts
I'm actually pretty proud of me. I got through most of the books I planned to read!
1) Anna, like I said last week when I started it, was amazing. Adorable, hysterical, and all of that. I found myself wanting more, even though it's a stand-alone. I gave it three stars, but I highly recommend it.
2) Rival was terrible. You can read my whole rant on Goodreads, through the link, but I was disappointed, and I would have much rather read Viola, so I could have gotten to Like Mandarin.
3) I love Viola, and this book was probably more amazing than Viola in Reel Life, simply because it takes place in the greatest city ever. Viola and I may not have that much in common, but I see a lot of myself in her.

This Week MONTH I Plan To Read
Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard (in the next few days)
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
Eberheardt by Riv Re (Me!!!)

Other Things I'm Planning
Soooo since I'm going to be away, I've decided to print out what I've written so far through Lulu. They have a special offer, they'll print your book for free if you publish one in the next couple of days.
Other than that, it's just Chuck, a set of twins, and myself.

I'll see you guys on Tuesday, and on Wednesday I'm off!

Peace and heat waves (are there EVER!),
