    A few weeks ago, I bought and read 'A Home for Mr Tipps', and then, I bought a book that I had wanted to buy for some time, 'Skullduggery Pleasant'.

    I just found out they were both illustrated by the same person: Tom Percival.

  2. Writing & Reading

    For some reason, I've been writing more and more lately, specifically, for my Maylene story. After thinking about it, I realised that it was because the part I'm at right now is the part is was most looking for in the story, and the one most heavy with Character Development.

    This got me thinking about Character Development in general, regarding a lot of the novels I've been reading. There's "A Series of Unfortunate Events", which didn't seem to have any at all. Darren Shan's ...

  5. Currently Reading Paper Towns

    I'm currently reading Paper Towns by John Green.



    I've started the book when I lay down and couldn't sleep, and eventually decided that it wasn't helping me fall asleep. I've previously read Looking For Alaska by the same author, and finished the book yesterday (I think).

    John Green's Looking For Alaska won a Printz Award, and it was his debut novel. ...
