What can I say about me? I'm British. I'm 15. I have curly brown hair, which I recently chopped off (well, most of it. It used to be down to my waist and now it hangs around my shoulders) (UPDATE ON THE HAIR: it is now a pixie cut which I have to straighten to stop it ringletting). My blood sucks at being blood, and my mind sucks at being a mind... and... I love writing... basically, that's all there is to say about me, I'm pretty boring...

Au revoir, mes amies :)

Oh yeah, and I tend to speak in French...

    Hiya,

    So, i just wanted to let you all know that I'm really sorry I haven't been writing recently, but I'm having some personal struggles at the moment, and on top of that I'm snowed under with homework, so I need to work through some stuff, then I'll be back to writing as soon as possible.

    Thanks for your patience :)

    Oh please take all the time you need. Real life comes first, don't worry.
    If you do have any spare time, do you think you could check this out for me? I'd really appreciate it :) It's my first fanfic.
    Pearl White ~A One Direction FairyTa...You think you know how the story goes. Snow White meets some dwarves, eats an apple, falls asleep, gets kissed by a prince and lives happily ever after. ...

    But again, remember that you should take personal time first!

    School stuff, random bits of paper, a pen pot with no pens in, some hair bands, hair grips, scissors, plasters, books, and lots of mess.

    Who's your favourite person.
    I hate people.

    I don't go out, but if I did, my phone, a notebook and pen, and my purse.

    That implies I actually enjoy going to school. I hate school, but if I had to choose, art. Or biology.

    Chris:
    What's your favourite colour?
    Navy blue, but unfortunately, that colour on a wall kind of sucks all the light from the room.

    What's on your desk?
    Lots of school books and text books, and a pen pot and pens, and a photo of my dad, me and my mum when I was young. Everyone always says my desk, and my whole room actually, are far too tidy for a boy to live there.

    Geography. Everyone else seems to hate it, but I love it, finding out about how the world fits together and how amazing everything is.

    Purple. It's such a pretty colour, don't you think? So beautiful. It reflects who I am.

    Who's your favourite person?
    I love my dad a lot. He gets me whatever I want.

    Uh, duh, Skye. She bullies me! And when my dad went all strict and said I couldn't go to America for my birthday.

    When Is your birthday?
    September 8th. I'm one of the eldest in the year.

    When you go out, what do you take?
    My phone, my iPad, my headphones, my makeup case, my purse, my lipgloss.

    What is your favourite subject at school?
    Ugh, I hate school, and working and all of that, but I'm definitely very good at French. And English. And the sciences. Yeah, I'm actually quite good at a lot of things.

    My review of this excellent book.

    4 years agoReply
    City of Bones by Cassandra Clare – Book Review
    City of Bones is a fantasy book about a world where almost all the stories and myths are true. It has your traditional YA novel setting of a young teenager (in this case, a girl) stumbling upon a world she never knew existed, even though she was actually born to possibly the most important evil mastermind in all of its history.The book is aimed at teenagers who are keen on the dystopian novels, and books set in fantasy realms. If you liked books such as Shiver, Linger and that series, or the Percy Jackson series, you will probably enjoy City of Bones, and there are strong links later in the series to The Infernal Devices trilogy.
    Basically, it’s the story of a girl named Clary (Clarissa) who starts seeing things that her friends can’t see, and accidentally walks in on Jace, Alec and Izzy killing a demon in a club she goes to. She argues with her protective mother and runs off, and when she does, her mother is attacked by demons. She, along with Jace who has been sent to come and find her, go to her house and find her mother gone. Clary, still in the dark about the whole situation, finds herself battling with, and eventually killing a creature called a Ravener. She wakes up at the Institute (a place of sanctuary for Shadowhunters, and where Jace, Alec, Izzy and Hoge live, as well as the Lightwoods who do not feature in this book) and has the whole world of Downworlders and Shadowhunters explained to her (I’m still a little confused about all of that – there’s a lot of information to take in). She begins a hunt to find her mother, hoping she’s not dead. All the leads seem to point to a mysterious person who is supposedly dead – Valentine, who also wants the Mortal Cup (one of the three mortal instruments the series is named after). In her nosing around, she discovers that her mother and Valentine were married, and that they had a son. Her mother ran away from her world when Valentine burnt down her house with (supposedly) himself and their son in there. After that, she has Clary. Clary, through her learning of the runes and ‘magic’ (although it’s worth pointing out that Shadowhunters don’t use magic, per se; it’s the closest word I can come up with), she discovers where the mortal cup is hidden, and, at length, Valentine, when he appears through a portal to steal the cup as part of a twisted bargain. She turns up where he is hidden, and the rest, I’ll leave for you to discover.
    Throughout the book there is a certain chemistry between Jace and Clary, and although he is incredibly egocentric and arrogant, there’s something lovable about him too. It’s almost as if he had to develop this hard shell to protect himself from his past. He is incredibly funny, adding small bits of humour to the dark, action packed drama. Meanwhile, creating the all-important love triangle, Clary’s best friend Simon is clearly besotted with her. Well, clear to everyone except Clary (seriously, how can she be so blind?). Simon has perseverance though, as despite being friendzoned multiple times, he carries on in his dogged adoration. The characters are all unique, and very real, a feat which can sometimes be difficult to achieve with the peripheral characters, and the narration is fast paced, and had me on the edge of my figurative seat with anticipation. It is a must read for any fantasy lovers, as it is a storyline I had not come across in my reading thus far, and the writing is excellent, making the style easy to read. I really would recommend this book very highly and would, if pressed, give it four stars out of five. It loses a star because of how difficult it was to understand the world both we and Clary had been thrust into. A thoroughly enjoyable read, which marked an enjoyable weekend after my holiday.
