I Want A Sequel!

Standard

No matter how many books a series has in its canon, I always, always, want more. (I’m looking at you JK Rowling. Seven books, eight films, a play, spin-off films, a theme park and novellas will never be enough!) Some books end perfectly, with the happy ever after I had been dreaming of since the first chapter, but then, the cogs of my mind start turning and I begin to think and wonder about what happens after the last page. So, here are the top three series I am wishing to continue.

These books are in no particular order.

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

25774272

So I know we had four novels, one companion, one collection of novellas and a spin-off graphic novel, but I will never, ever be done with this series. I want adventures on the Rampion!

The Precious Stone Trilogy by Kerstin Gier

[SPOILERS] So now that Gwen and Gideon are both immortal, how are they going to spend their time? They can literally travel in time for the rest of their lives. Can we have history lessons in abundance via the Ruby and Diamond.

Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead

Again, I know that we covered a lot in the six novels that Mead dedicated to the Vampire Academy series, but let’s be real, how awesome would be to have Rose and Dimitri battling their way through the hoards of Strigoi and saving the world from the evil vampires? Very awesome, indeed.

So these are the three series I’ve picked, that I am waiting with bated breath, for more books. Do you have any series that you wish more books were being released? Or perhaps there is a last book to the series you wish hadn’t been released? (-cough- Mockingjay -cough-) Let me know in the comments!

Another 25 Facts About Me

Considering the last 25 Facts blog post went down so well, I thought I would do another… just in case you don’t know me well enough already! So here are another 25 facts about me.

  • My second novel is titled Losing Lola and it’s a contemporary murder mystery.
  • My Ilvermorny house is Horned Serpent.
  • I try my hardest to buy cruelty free products where possible. Boots (UK) own-brand products are always affordable and good quality, as are Superdrug.
  • My wand is 10 and three quarter inches, made from Willow with a Unicorn Hair core.
  • I enjoy reading physical books and eBooks. Some readers seem to prefer one or the other, but I like both.
  • I am currently learning French on Duolingo (as part of my Promises and Wishes list), and am currently 30% fluent.
  • A portion of the books I own I bought whilst I was travelling on my gap year, so I have the international copies instead of the UK editions.
  • I adore all three of Charlie Simpson’s solo albums (Young Pilgrim, Long Road Home and Little Hands), and I never get tired of listening to them.
  • Whenever I travel to a new country, I try to buy a postcard as a memento.
  • I love listening to audio-books, namely the Chronicles of Narnia series and the Harry Potter series.
  • I have a warm skin tone and I look best in bright, crisp and clear colours.
  • I have written two books and I have vague outlines for at least another two, one of which I hope to write this November during NaNoWriMo.
  • Some other series that I love are The Lunar Chronicles, The Divergent Series, The Hunger Games and The Heather Wells Mysteries.
  • I have a passion for photography and usually take pictures on my phone when the inspiration strikes.
  • I love writing letters to people and have pen-pals who I write to regularly.
  • I have a very small, very faint birthmark in the shape of a diamond on my stomach.
  • Before I was born and all throughout my life, my nickname has been Hubble.
  • Fall Out Boy’s From Under the Cork Tree is one of my favourite albums of all time. It reminds me of when I began to develop my own music tastes.
  • This year, one of my dreams, that Busted would get back together and reunite on stage, was completed. My friend Rob and I saw it happen with our very own eyes at Wembley Arena.
  • Another of my favourite albums is Paramore’s Brand New Eyes. It was the first time someone had perfectly summed up the angst I felt about the world. I won’t ever forget how free it made me feel.
  • I love to draw, and often draw costumes, blueprints and ideas for my books.
  • I recently got another tattoo on my wrist of the letter H in my father’s handwriting. Those who know me well will know the significance.
  • The series I want to start soon are the Name of the Star series by Maureen Johnson, the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas, and the Comoran Strike series by JK Rowling.
  • I really love reading and watching non-fiction pieces on True Crime.
  • I am participating in the 2016 Classics Challenge and have currently read 12.

So that’s all for my latest 25 facts about me. Let me know in the comments section if you want to see more of these types of posts and whether you share facts in common with me!

blue butterfly – #17.12

Standard

New York is just a feeling I get

when the cold air hits my face, the thought of getting ice cream

as the snow falls around, is just a fairy tale dream

I once lived, the feeling of your fingers on my skin,

we flashed fake diamond rings.

 

We got drive-thru coffee and marriage

made it official in the parking lot, we talked

about our wedding, trying to warm our cold feet.

We were the American

dream, running through the Catskill’s

hills, in the dead of night, moonlight like a spot light,

the night light of the fire flies, as we dance home,

ready to take flight. We acted like everything was

alright, like we had it all figured

out. Steak and fries.

Dinner and show,

It will be the greatest dream I’ll ever

remember

I know
