I was right. This is definitely not going well. “You mean, a guy in a hat, eye mask, and a cloth around his mouth…attacked both you and Samantha Day?” one of the cops asks, a blonde woman who looks at me as though I’m chewed gum underneath her shoe. The other cop is a guy … Continue reading Traces, Part Eight
I've decided to do a little something before I review books: make a soundtrack for them. What do I mean? Well, sometimes I associate certain songs with scenes or characters from the book. I also hope doing this will help me remember scenes and characters from books better! The music I choose will be a … Continue reading My Book Soundtrack Playlist: Warcross
Icebreaker's questions: Have you ever talked to yourself out loud? If you have talked to yourself, have you ever been caught by someone else? I tend to do this when I'm thinking deeply about a story idea. Especially when I was younger. And yes, I did get caught sometimes, but mostly when I was younger; … Continue reading Biweekly Q&A: Have I ever talked to myself out loud?
I think I regain consciousness when everything is shaking and bouncing. The world is really fuzzy though. I hear a lot of people talking and fussing, and the sound of machinery. My eyelids flutter open. There are a lot of faces and flashing lights that are bright enough to make me visibly cringe. An ambulance. … Continue reading Traces, Part Seven

If she is, it won’t be an imaginary killer she should be scared of, but me! Sammy, this isn’t a … Continue reading Traces, Part Six
The summary I read for this book on another site was (this is paraphrased) that it was about an eighteen-year old autistic boy who was on trial for murder, and that only one person believed in his innocence. I thought this was a fascinating concept, especially as I have been watching and reading more and … Continue reading Book Review: The Silence of Murder

I had been at the library some time ago when I spotted this movie. Immediately, I realized, "hey, wasn't this directed by the guy that made that movie, Your Name? Well, better check it out!" So that's what I did. Also, as this is an animation, I am going to be reviewing according to my … Continue reading Movie Review: Children Who Chase Lost Voices
Icebreaker's questions: What’s the one word you always mispronounce? Oh, it varies from day to day, and how much sleep I get. The sad part is that I'm likely mispronouncing words on a daily basis mentally, and no one tells me because they aren't telepaths. Can you juggle? (I don’t think I can do it … Continue reading Biweekly Q&A: What’s the one word I always mispronounce?
