Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones - Book Review


Synopsis: All her life, Liesl has heard tales of the beautiful, dangerous Goblin King. They've enraptured her mind and spirit and inspired her musical compositions. Now eighteen and helping to run her family’s inn, Liesel can't help but feel that her musical dreams and childhood fantasies are slipping away.

But when her own sister is taken by the Goblin King, Liesl has no choice but to journey to the Underground to save her. Drawn to the strange, captivating world she finds--and the mysterious man who rules it--she soon faces an impossible decision. With time and the old laws working against her, Liesl must discover who she truly is before her fate is sealed.



I gave this book 3/5 stars. The plot was good, I'm not going to lie, but the main character was awfully annoying. She got mad over the most stupid things. Another flaw I saw was that she was just letting herself be pushed down by her father. I hate it when characters have self-doubt and are self-conscious when it comes to there talents when they could just show-off their amazing skills. I think it's also a point to be made that Liesl was being pushed down since she was younger and that she didn't understand at the time that she was being pushed down. Another point is that she over-reacted about her appearance. I find that awful because I think books should show how teens or whoever is reading the book should feel empowered to not care about what others think or what their peers say or how they look. It was just Liesl who brought those stars down. The rest of the novel was really good and it is likely that I will pick up the sequel.

Love and Theater Cover Reveal

So my novel, Love and Theater. Here is the cover, synopsis, an aesthetic I made for the story, and another sneak peek to get you excited!
I did this with my friend Noel who is also doing a cover reveal. Go check her out...

Here is the synopsis:
Rose Adary is auditioning for the role of Anastasia in her school musical. When the nerve-wracking audition is over she accidentally trips and falls into the arms of Liam, the new handsome student at Banel Junior High School. Her well-organized lifestyle might as well have turned upside down when she discovers her mom is pregnant with twins and her little brother Al is in a car accident with his leg needing to be sawed off. Her feelings for Liam are just another problem.  
This story shows the family struggles that come from unfortunate accidents and the need to stay true to your family. 

The aesthetic: The Sneak Peek: “Rose Adary! Please come on to the stage,” called the drama teacher. Mrs. Wister has been my teacher since I came to Banel Juni…

#UnicornWriteAThon Announcement and Plans

#UnicornWriteAThon
So, I'm starting a WriteAThon... The name was my idea. For some reason, I've been on a unicorn high recently.
What is it: During the week period, you have to accomplish a word count goal you set for yourself.

When is it: May 13-19, 2018

Why: Because I need to finish the novel I started.

MY PLANS!!!!
I am planning to write a total of:
3,500 words!
And, I plan to outline A LOT! Right now I have about 5,000 words and I do want quite a short book sooooo................


Question: How are you liking the Twilight series so far? Answer: I am loving it. I actually just finished a day ago. I need another one though. I'm gonna find the author's P.O. box and send her a 4-page letter explaining why I NEED another book in that series. This has become one of my new favorite series.
What is your word count goal if you are doing the WriteAThon? And if you are doing it comment! My review for an Ember in the Ashes will be up VERY soon.
