Made of stardust




"We are made of stardust …"

That is how a quote began on Goodreads some days ago and I found myself stopping there, mid-sentence and reading again the same words. We are made of stardust but the magic that gives us life is different.

The hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy series




Yep. I read this crazy trilogy of five and I’m ready to share the excitement. But what can we really say about those books, huh? I don’t think that my words can describe the magnificent and yet so complicated and mind-blowing story that came out of Douglas Adams’s head so many years ago.

If you’d ask me to say one word that can describe this series is: Paranoia!

Teaser Tuesday #13: Frankenstein



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by A Daily Rhythm.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

On Writing: Show me some teeth




These last few months, I'm rewriting the second book of a story I started years ago and so far it’s been like child's play. I created a new Word File and since I knew where the plot is heading, I wrote chapter after chapter and created a new story. It was wonderful and easy and I felt so powerful and happy that I foolishly let myself believe that I would finish it up in a blink of an eye.


Yesterday though things got an unexpected turn.
