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!

Random Acts of Kindness BLITZ!

People say writing is a solitary act. But it takes a whole village to raise a child. (That's catchy. I should trademark that.)
There are so many amazing writers out there. The list of people that helped me personally is endless.

Kindness Rocks!

To commemorate the release of their book The Emotion Thesaurus, Becca and Angela at The Bookshelf Muse are hosting a TITANIC Random Act Of Kindness BLITZ. And because I think KINDNESS is contagious, I'm participating too!

I'm blitzing my sister, AKA the Blobfish (don't ask). She's always been there to debate [read: argue] with me all the little things in writing, from how to phrase a sentence, to how to break up a chapter. We have completely different writing styles, but we can still talk. And she supported my writing, even when it was complete garbage. Because seriously. I should have been banned from writing three years ago. That stuff should be illegal. (Don't you dare tell her I said this, but I think my sister is the better writer of the two of us, too!)

Something is in the mail heading towards you right now, sis. I hope you enjoy it. -D

Do you know someone special that you'd like to randomly acknowledge?
Don't be shy--come join us and celebrate! Send them an email, give them a shout out, or show your appreciation in another way. Kindness makes the world go round. :)
Becca and Angela have a special RAOK gift waiting for you as well, so hop on over to The Bookshelf Muse to pick it up.

Have you ever participated in or been the recipient of a Random Act Of Kindness?  I'd love to heard about it!

May the odds be ever in your favor,


  1. Yes, I think you're rather special! You have an amazing energy I love. Thanks for being a part of my YA Expert Board. Hoping to rev that up again real soon.

  2. That's so great that you have a sister who writes. I'm looking forward to reading everyone's posts today.

  3. I LOVE that you picked your sister. The last conference I went to, I met two sisters who both wrote YA, and that was just so neat. Maybe someday you'll collaborate on a book! :)


  4. Yay sisters! I have two and they are awesome when I don't want to throttle them. *cough*

  5. Such a sweet post! I love that you picked your sister. :)


  7. I <3 you too.
