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!

2012 Fill in the Blanks

So. Um. Hi. Still alive here, if anyone was curious.
Tumblr Life kind of happened recently. That and that occasional feeling of inadequacy you sometimes experience when you've been blogging for more than two and a half years and don't even have 150 followers to show for it, while other bloggers have twice that after six months.


That's not why I'm here! And don't worry (or maybe you should?) because I plan to be on much more often, especially after all the books and ARCS I received over the holidays. (I'm really excited to read them all, to be honest.)

I opted out of "Favorites" this year, because of how pitifully little I read, and because of how pitifully little time I have. Catching up on Doctor Who really fills up my schedule. But, I can't just let the year end, can I?

Last year and the year before (wow. it's been a while) I played this "Fill in the Blanks" game, where you answer the questions with titles of books you read over the year. I got this from a blog whose link no longer leads anywhere, so I don't know what happened to it, but I believe the site was called Brooke's Reviews. I claim no credit for the questions*, and if you like the game, please feel free to join in on the fun!
