Angelic

A few weeks ago in my post about participating in NaNoWriMo this year, I mentioned I was writing a book called Angel, which is the first book of the Above and Below duology. Since then, however, I have slightly changed the title to Angelic, and altered the series’ name to the Envoy duology. I felt like sharing a few things about it.

Books I Should Have Read By Now

I’ve decided to share how much of a shameful human being I am, and list a few of the more popular novels that I have not yet got around to reading. “Excuses, excuses,” you probably think, and, in my defense, *insert lame reason here* (I don’t have any validations for not yet reading any of these).

The Mortal Instruments, by Cassandra Clare

NaNoWriMo 2013

This year, for the first time, I’m participating in the National Novel Writing Month. I’ll be putting Maudlin aside for the time being (although I’ll be working on it up until November) and start writing my YA novel Angel. You can follow my progress here, and become a writing buddy if you’re participating, too!

Books I Think Should Have Film/TV Adaptions

Last post, I mentioned I was going to see Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters in cinemas. Unfortunately, the screening period had ended at the cinema I went to a few days earlier. Of course, that means I cannot write a Page to Screen post about it.

So, to make it up to you, I have written a list of some books and stories I adore, that I think should be adapted for film or television.

This to That

In my efforts to make my blog’s menu easier to navigate, you may notice I have changed the “Beginning to End” page title to “This to That”.

This is because I have thought of another frequent post to write, using the title structure “____ to ____”, much like “Beginning to End”.

The new post, “Page to Screen”, shall have me watching film or television adaptions of my favourite books and stories (or really any books or stories I’ve read that has a screen adaption) and comparing the adaption to the book, as all good readers do.

My first post in this series shall be appearing in two or three days, when I at last get to see Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. I even re-read the novel yesterday to refresh my memory of the storyline. Fingers crossed it will be more accurate than the first!

Releases Galore!

There is so much happening in the worlds of my favourite authors recently – so much so that I think I may have a heart failure. So many releases and announcements of new books, film adaptions, and more!

The soonest release is the long-awaited fourth book in the Heroes of Olympus series, The House of Hades. A mere day away! Rick Riordan, King of the Cliffhanger, was seriously nasty at the end of The Mark of Athena, and I expect some epic storytelling to make up for that.

If this isn’t the most epic cover art you’ve ever seen… Then, um, you’ve seen more epic cover art…

But after this, there’s only ONE book left! I’m going to have to say goodbye to my fictional friends for a second time, and I don’t think my tears are going to hold this time round…
