Endings

Recently I watched Dexter’s final episode. It was a series I was watching for eight seasons and I was anxious to know how the story would end. Well, if you were a fan too, you’ll know that the ending was disappointed. For most of us anyway.

That made me thinking about endings and my mind flooded with all the endings that stuck in my head. Until I came up with a conclusion. We pay more attention to endings than it should.

The Secret Hour

After I read the Uglies series by Westerfeld  I was eager to read something else written by him. Then a friend told me about this series where some people have an extra hour every day and the world freezes around them giving it’s place to another world with monsters and secrets ...

Well, I don’t need to say that I was hooked. Join me in a spoiler free conversation about this book.

On Writing

Recently I read On Writing: A memoir of the craft, written by Stephen King. It was a book I wanted to read for some time and I finally put my hands on it. And it was good.

The book is divided in two parts. In the first one we read about King’s life since he wants to show us how a writer was formed. During this part, I learned a lot about his life and I was surprised to learn about his alcoholism and drug addiction. But King talked about everything and I was able to understand him. I see now that it was necessary to read all these stuff before I moved on the next part, where he talks about writing. Because after that part I could judge better his likes and way on writing.

Days of blood and starlight

Days of blood and starlight! Oh, how I love this title. I was hooked even before I start reading it. It is so powerful that made my mind go crazy. And I wasn’t wrong.

This is the second book in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, and a very interesting read. Let’s talk about it. But before you click the button take a look at the discussion on the first book, here, if you haven’t read it yet.

I never include spoilers so feel safe to read this post. :)

Rules

Seriously, who doesn’t hate this word? Rules! It’s not the word of course we hate –I hate, but the meaning. It is mostly because it creates limits and traps me when all I want to do is spread my wings and fly. But I know, there are limitations. 

Hopefully not in everything. Imagination has no limits and I’m free to create whatever I want. Well, but only if I obey the rules.  You see what is going on, right? It’s an eternal loop and I’m spinning in the middle. But let’s take things from the beginning. Beginning is a good place to start, I think.
