Ten Things I Wish I Could Say to Fictional Characters.
  • 1: Really? You're going to fall for that?
  • 3: How are you so calm right now? Why am I the only one that has an issue with how people are treating you? You're. So. Calm.
  • 4: Oh yeah, your mortal enemy is totally going to keep his/her word (shakes head, while whispering, "Noooooooo.")
  • 5: Of course that person likes you, are you completely blind?
  • 6: I bet you're regretting that choice you made, huh?
  • 7: You know you're in trouble when your creator (the author) has given voice to another character as well as you. (Hey, Allegiant, this one's for you!)
  • 8: No, no, character, I'm not laughing at you, I'm laughing with you. I swear.
  • 9: WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?!?! Great, now you're making me cry. Thanks.
  • 10: See, you should have just said "I love you" when you had the chance, now you've given the author the chance to screw up your life and write a sequel.
  • What would you say to the characters from the books you've read?

Hello! I'm not pointing the finger at anyone (least of all you, cos your blog is a-ma-zing!), but do you think the whole giveaway thing is to gain followers rather than to thank followers? Most of the giveaways that I see say that 'you must be following me', which (to me) invites new people to follow your blog. In which case the giveaway-host is not thanking them at all cos they weren't a follower before. Would it not be kinder to current followers to make sure only they can get the prize? - Anonymous

But if it’s a thank you for followers who are following me, and your not actually following the blog then why should I be thanking you and giving you something for free? People are going to see the giveaway and reblog it regardless if they’re following me or not but I prefer to give it someone who actually follows the blog and reads my reviews etc. then give it to someone who just reblogged it for the sake of reblogging it. That’s how I see it anyway. 


I have a love affair with hardcovers. They’re elegant and sleek and sometimes when you take off the sleeve there’s a surprise on the cover. But then other times I really love paperbacks because they’re so casual and cool like they won’t take it personal if you fold over a corner. And then there’s ebooks which are like epitome of convenience and I can hold a library in the palm of my hand. I just really love books
