Inkheart (Inkheart, Book 1) Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
I liked this book from the first chapter. After all, there's nothing like a story about books for a booklover. The characters are interesting and real but I didn't develop that strong connection I do with the characters I really like. The story and the way it was presented was well crafted, keeping the tension and the interest in the story. I do feel that it isn't very elaborated plot wise. For a 600 page book not a lot happens but the story still is captivating and the narration works very well. I especially liked the quotes at the beginning of each chapter and how those and the book itself urged me to read or reread some other books. All in all, a very good read.

View all my reviews.

xposted to [livejournal.com profile] whales_tooth. Sorry to those of you who got it twice.

And let me take this oportunity to pimp two things:

1. [livejournal.com profile] whales_tooth. It's a great book comunity and there are regular posts. If you are looking for books to read, this is a good place. also, I remember some of you wanting recs for gay fiction and Anne and I think Lil have been posting reviews of those.

2. Goodreads. I know I've pimped this before but it's a great side to keep track of the books you've read, share reviews with your friends and get some wonderful ideas on what to read next. You can find my books here, so come on and share some books with me.

I hope everyone had a good weekend *hugs*

I'm so sorry I'm late, I'm getting behind in making icons too. Just so you all know, I use the birthday list on LJ to check when your b/day is and make you an icon, but if you aren't there, there's no way for me to know and I might miss it, if I do or did, I'm really sorry.

And now, Happy belated Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] alena_yuy! I made you an icon:

*puts on pimp hat*

[livejournal.com profile] thejennabides is organizing a Multifandom Shameathon!

What is it, you ask? Well, it's a chance to ask for that fic you've been wanting to read but are too ashamed to write. Now is the chance to try your hand at writing something different and get that fic you've been wanting too!

For more information and to sign up go here. Go ahead and sign up! There's lots of time to write and it'll be lots of fun!

(if you do sign up and [livejournal.com profile] thejennabides doesn't know you, just mention I sent you... secret password... um, banana? ^_^)

Happy belated birthday, [livejournal.com profile] prettykitty_aya! I'm sorry I'm late and I hope you had a great day. Here, I made you an Ouran icon.

There's a new birthday comm. The idea is that people write their preferences and then on their birthday, whoever wants to give them a fic, does it. It's a cool idea, so go join: [livejournal.com profile] smuttydays!

And last but not least...


4 ET / 3 CT / 2 MT / 1 PT

time converter here :D

I hope to see you all there. We can write and smut while the others play at Y-con ^____^
misanagi: (secret)
- For the Ouran fans, there's a new comm for both fanfiction and fanart: [livejournal.com profile] ouran_challenge There's a weekly challenge and there's no word limits, so go have fun and write some fic.

- I'm downloading Prison Break episodes. I don't need no synchronized subbing and there's no way in hell I'm waiting till March for the next season. *pokes download*

- Remember that Creative Writing Master's program? I decided to apply. I have this story to get done by Friday and I have all of two paragraphs done. Yay. Go me. I'm not feeling very confident about my chances of getting in.

- I'm applying to a Literature Master too. Not so confident about that one either.

- I wish everyone going to Y-con a wonderful time. I'm trying not to feel too envious. I wish I could meet you all too. Have a great time ^_^

The [livejournal.com profile] 1x2_fans Cubicle Love Contest entries are up for reading and voting. I'm not sure if you have to be a member of the comm to vote (I don't think so) but anyway, go have a look at the entries.

Ouran's download is done. Is it weird that I want to see it now but kind of don't because then it'll be over? *procrastinates a little and avoids all Ouran related posts*

[livejournal.com profile] pervy_potluck Event!

Saturday, June 17, 2006
2 pm Colombia, 7 am NZ (Sunday, June 18), 10 pm London and 7 pm Zulu

This event is for everyone who likes to read or write pr0n. Come, have fun, chat, and read pervy stuff. It last for long, usually, so it's ok if you come a bit late. It'll be fun!
(Time zones courtesy of The time zone converter)

And I forgot to post the link to the third part of Gifts of War, which is up in [livejournal.com profile] stagesoflove

Have a great day, everyone!
misanagi: (1x2 closer)
[livejournal.com profile] zerotwofan's Moments of Rapture contest is closed, and the entries are up.

There are a lot of fics there. I just started reading, there's just so much. I was thinking about what some people say, about being able to guess the writer. I don't think I'm so good at that. Granted, I just started reading but I have no idea who could have written the story. Maybe some people pick up the subtle signals more easily.

Anyway, go read and vote!

Also, I posted the third part of Saligiare, Lujuria, in [livejournal.com profile] stagesoflove, although with all the new wonderful fics in MoR I'm not sure people will have the time to read it ^^;;

Have a great day, everyone!

The month of May 2006 is

The Great Gundam Wing Rewatch

Attention Gundam Wing fans, new and old, active and retired:

This month let's have a fandom-wide event! You needn't contribute anything but the time it takes to watch the Gundam Wing series in the month of May. When was the last time you watched the series in its entirety? It's time for both nostalgia and fresh inspiration.

Let's remind ourselves why we're fans and get as many fanfic writers and readers, fan artists, and fandom lurkers to participate as possible. Together we can laugh at Trowa's hair and count how many times Heero lands on his head. We can ponder the politics and contrast the philosophies. We can revisit all our favourite moments of the show. So dust off your DVD's or your videos and join in the fun. The more the merrier!

Please pimp this as widely as you can.

[personal profile] windsorblue wrote me an amazing comment drabble. Go read!

I've been lazy these last few days. *yawns* I'm writing but it's going slow. Hopefully I'll manage to get things done, at least some of them.

I'm craving school fics, one where Quatre has a decent size role, and I can't find anything I haven't read before. I've been re reading the ones Ilike too but I want something new. I want to read a long fic, fantasy, AU, canon, whatever... I just want Quatre to be in it, not just mentioned in a sentence like "Duo was staying in one of Quatre's mansions."

*looks desperate* Anyone has a rec?
misanagi: (Shadow)

I've been thinking… not because I want to but because the thought won't leave me alone, and even makes me go squee (and I don't go squee that often).

But, wouldn't Quatre be a great Ryuosuke? Can't you just see him as a kick ass driver? Wouldn't he be the type to step back and be the brains of the operation, knowing exactly what to do, and when to do it? The strategist of the group?

He would definitely have the money to keep the Project going, and the equipment. And he would simply look way too cool doing it.

Is a nice thought, isn't it?

I don't think I want to write it. I don't have the time, and I know nothing about cars so I wouldn't do a good job. I guess I just want to think about it. Yes, think about it.




In other news, [profile] _blackster_ is way too cool and is hosting the GQ Quatre Fanart Contest. If you can draw, participate! (the prizes are great). And if you are like me and can't even draw a decent happy face, then pimp!

Also, I think all of you may have already know this but [profile] merith proposed April as the Showering!Quatre month, so go ahead and write or draw something.

And since I'm pimping Quatre, don't forget the action challenge in the SDQB.

Hmm, I think that's it... Now go and have a great weekend. :P
