Statement of Intent: If 你 read to the end, you'll notice that I do not advocate against 阅读 Twilight, just putting it into context for young readers. This was originally written for a 脸谱 audience of 老友记 until I decided to post it here as well. It was not intended to offend Twilight 粉丝 或者 readers, but to simply give a little perspective on why I believe Edward Cullen is a poor character to respect/admire. Should there be enough 流行的 demand, I'm willing to write a similar 文章 about Bella Swan.

Last 年 I put together a 列表 of 图书 that I read coupled with my opinions on them, using my reviews from good reads. I decided to keep it going.

Avatar: The Last Airbender (Smoke and Shadow #3)


I got to read this one like way back in March thanks to tumblr lol. But I decided to wait until I actually got a physical copy to review it on here.

Any how 10/10 *was satisfied with the amount of Azula*
As always, I really enjoyed the comic as a whole, I really liked this story line. The whole fear based theme and the Kemurikage were wonderful. I'd really 爱情 to know 更多 about those ladies.

Since everyone was so positive about my last article, I decided to make it a series of sorts. Different themes, maybe one 文章 a month. I am 23 and I still 爱情 all of the following books. People can enjoy them at any age, but these are especially great ones for kids and teens. There were so many to choose from, so I apologize that I had to leave out so many of my favorites. Let's all recapture youth! As always, these are in no particular order.

Mmkay, this is a really powerful-but really long- quote and I really hope 你 take just a few 分钟 out of whatever you're doing and read it.

"I was telling 你 about evil, now that I know what it is. It's what makes a man get drunk and press a red hot poker on his child's back. It's what makes men have to queue for hours at the dock gates for a chance of a job when there are only a dozen jobs for a hundred men, so they fight each other in order to get them, and the foreman laugh and egg them on. It's what takes an old couple who've got nothing left but each other and splits them up to go...

Preface

“Okay honey, it’s your first time on a plane!” my mother cooed me. I was five then so I didn’t hate it entirely. “I’m ready Mommy!” I said. We sat in section… 1A and 1B.
My mother was overly excited for the both of us because it was also her first time on a plane.
After takeoff, my mother spotted San Diego, which was the wrong direction. We were going to visit my grandparents in Michigan. It felt like the plane was dropping all of a sudden.
“Mommy, are we going to land now?” I asked. “I’m going to go talk to the pilot honey. I’ll be right back.” My mother...

For a lot of people with chronic disease, the inability to work is a difficult and frustrating reality. Contrary to common misconceptions that not working must be "nice." 或者 must be like taking an "extended vacation," the lack of a job for medical reasons can have significant consequences on a person's sense if identity--not to mentions finances and interpersonal relationships.

Writer Randy Jernigan recently shed some light on this reality while he was a guest on Donny Max's 'Lets Talk About It' radio program out of Seattle. Randy, who has been diagnosed with End Stage Renal Failure, Chronic...

"I still get nightmares," begins Johnny Truant, editor of House of Leaves ("House," 由 the way, always colored in blue). He goes on to explain how he stumbled upon the fateful document that would consume him. How Zampanò, an old and eccentric shut-in had left his critique of the Navidson Record scribbled on loose-leaf papers, book covers, and the backs of envelopes and even stamps scattered across his room. Johnny diligently collected all of the papers and organized them into the comprehensive thesis it was meant to be. It is an elaborate and detailed explanation of a documentary that, Johnny...

Veteran writer Randy Jernigan took to his 脸谱 page to share his exuberance in his former student, Les Bailey, and his new book, The Vampire Game: Discovery. which debuted in Kindle 图书 November 19, 2015.

"I knew when I first met Les several years back in one of my creative 写作 classes, that he was going to write the great American novel--and he did! Even then Les was a master storyteller. I remember vividly the feelings of excitement I experienced when he read aloud from one of his class assignments. The prose within the story was downright delicious. I recognized almost immediately...

Who Am I?
By: Gabriela Acosta



Chapter 1
“How would 你 describe me Lilly?” I asked.
“Paula, you’re a very smart and unique person. But also mysterious. In a good way.” She replied.
“How am I mysterious? I mean, I never thought of myself that way.”
“Because you’re always so quiet around people. Not around me, of course. It’s like 你 shut yourself down completely, like 你 don’t want them to know who 你 are.”
“But 你 know I’m very shy! Besides, I’m not very good at socializing, 你 know? I always make myself sound like a total freak!
“Hey, 你 asked for my...

Author Randy Jernigan and Jackson
When I sat down to 晚餐 at a small Asian 小酒馆 with my old friend and writer Randy Jernigan, he quickly scanned the menu, searching for the healthiest foods. Today would not be one of his famous “cheat days” he shares on his social media pages–usually Mondays when he and best friend, Jackson Fackrell, indulge in what he terms a “free meal.” Today he opts for several veggie heavy dishes with less calories, and of course, minus the fried 白饭, 大米 and noodles. Later, as the waitress cleared the table, I notice that she cleared away his half eaten meal.

At the time I remembered our last...

When I look on youtobe 或者 even here, there are people that just want every one to hate the Twilight series and Edward most of all! THEY ARE FICTIONAL! And your all fighting like a bunch of babies! Its a book! 你 dont have to like it and I am not telling 你 to read it if 你 haven't.

It was about ten years 以前 that I decided to get serious about my desire to make a living with what I loved the most--writing. So I looked up the number of a 流行的 写作 group in my 首页 town, got registered and took a class. I had heard of the instructor before, even read a couple of his 图书 and magazine articles, so I was thrilled at the...
