about me

Read-swaps welcomed, with one condition: I hate to be a stickler, but if you haven't at least read my first chapter, please refrain from commenting and pretending you have. It's really quite obvious, and makes me sad.

favourite books

The King of Attolia, by Megan Whalen Turner is my all-time favorite book. I've lost count of how many times I've read it. If you haven't read it, you should. It's amazing.

If Brothers Were Pumpkins

Krista Alasti

"You agreed to date someone you think is a serial-killer-in-the-making?"

“I’ll try not to go on a killing rampage and slice your throat, then.”

Those were 16-year-old Clay Rainey's last words to his (understandably) ex-girlfriend. They were also the words that got him passed off like a hand-me-down to the brother he'd spent the past ten years avoiding--with good reason: lying to someone's back is easier than lying to his face.

No one but Clay knows his mom's car 'accident' was actually a suicide--and that she'd planned for him to join her in the afterlife. But truth-telling is an option that will bring nothing but accusations (dear old dad) and pain (big brother Jason)--as Clay's self-inflicted burn scars can attest.

Now he's got his chance to start over with a new school, a new job, and possibly even a new girlfriend--one who isn't likely to scream in terror at the sight of him. But none of that matters when Jason treats him like an eater-of-babies. To win back his brother, Clay must come to terms with the one thing that scares him the most: the truth.

YARG review: I'm a bit leery of prologues, but when done right, I'm a big fan - as is the case here. I like how you don't explain every little detail of the fantasy aspects, because over-explaining can underestimate the reader and bog things down. Your writing is straight-to-the-point, with just... view book

YARG review. Angela, You've definitely got a lot going on in this first chapter. Lots of mystery, lots of intrigue, lots of characters - all good things. Your descriptions, especially of the lake and how it affects Alison, are wonderful. The way you drop hints of her past is very well done, no... view book

YARG review. Hi, Pippa, I've read up through the first chapter so far. The way the prologue is written is terrifyingly real. I kept trying to guess exactly what had happened to Jemma, but until it was revealed, I was clueless, and it kept me reading (with a sick feeling!). Your descriptions, ... view book

Came back for more. =) Chapter 2 Abi is certainly a lot nicer in this chapter, although it did seem to come a bit out of left-field. Why did she suddenly decide to help her father? I can see how she would warm to him after his apology, but I was shocked she went back to the house in the first pl... view book

Hi Rachael, I had a bit of time, so thought I'd stop in for our read-swap. I was reading though some of the comments on your story, and found one of them to be...unnecessarily rude. I'm sure you have an idea which I'm referring to. Although she could have phrased her comment more politely, I ... view book
