An Interview with Alyson Noel

  1. What made you decide to write a novel like Evermore?
Ever since I was a kid I’ve been interested in the paranormal—Casper the friendly ghost was my favorite cartoon! But it wasn’t until a few years ago, when I experienced a period of tremendous grief and loss—losing three people I loved in five months, and shortly after that nearly lost my husband to leukemia (he’s in full remission now!), that I really started thinking about things like life and death, mortality and immortality, the bonds that tie us even after a loved one is gone, and how our youth loving culture sort of seeks physical immortality by trying to remain youthful looking for as long as we can—and yet, what would happen if we really could achieve it? What would it mean for us, our loved ones, society in general? I started researching all kinds of paranormal phenomenon by reading tons of books on the subject, taking classes, and even under going hypnosis, and it was through those experiences that Ever and Damen’s story was born.

2. Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
Sure! Though I warn you, it’s kind of boring, not at all sexy or glamorous, and I’m sure you’ve heard it before—but that’s only because it works! So here goes:
  1. Read! Read often and widely, because the books that you love- as well as the books that you don’t—they all have something to teach you. When you get to parts that you like (or don’t like!) analyze what the author did to make it work so well (or not work so well). Reading a lot of books will give you a natural feel for storytelling rhythm and structure. It really is imperative.
  2. Write! Get into the habit of writing as often as you can because the more you write the better you get. Also, allow yourself to write without judging your work. You can always go back and revise it later. I revise my books countless times before I hand them into my editor, and then, even after that, I usually revise them again. When your work is finished, put it aside for a few weeks if you can, it’s amazing what you’ll see when you revisit it with fresh eyes!
  3. Learn! If you have writing classes available in school take them! If you’re out of school, there are a lot of online classes you can take, as well sites geared toward craft and industry info. Read agent blogs, join online groups as well as professional writing organizations, and, once again, read books! Some of my favorite books on craft are actually geared toward screenwriters, but whether it’s a movie or a book, the story elements are basically the same. One is STORY by Robert McKee- it’s big and thick and packed with insight. The other is SAVE THE CAT by Blake Snyder (he has a really good blog too:
  4. I also like ON WRITING by Stephen King.
3. If you could have any other job, besides writing, what would it be?

We’re talking dream job right? Because if not, I’d still be wearing my old polyester flight attendant dress!
Well, I actually have two:
  1. Rock star, I really admire people who can tell a whole story and evoke such emotion in a three-minute song.
  2. Great painter (canvas, not houses!). I love art and really admire the people who create it, and again, it’s yet another form of storytelling!
3. Damen is a lovely character, what is your favorite thing about him?

I love the fact that he has a past. When I first stated writing him, he didn’t, but then I realized that someone that good looking and that gifted who’s lived for that long definitely has some baggage he’s accumulated along the way! But I love how despite his six centuries of existence, he’s not at all world weary or jaded—he’s still full of wonder and optimism—and he only wants what’s best for Ever, no matter what the cost to him.

4. How did you get the ideas for the Immortals books?

Well, the series idea was born out of grief as I mentioned above, though the actual ideas that are found in the book stem from my interest in the mystical and paranormal and Eastern based philosophies. My research on those subjects really influenced the stories.

5. Is there anything you would like to add?

Well, I’m thrilled to announce that SHADOWLAND (book three in the series) will now be released on Jan 5, 2010, instead of February as originally planned! And the following three books (no titles yet!) will be released in 2010/11.
Also, Riley, (Ever’s ghostly little sister), will be getting her own series set to debut in Fall 2010—and I can’t wait to get started, I think it’s going to be a blast to write and hopefully to read as well!
And, if you haven’t been to the new IMMORTALS website yet, then run, don’t walk to:
There are excerpts, chakra charts, you can even download your aura and send it to a friend! And every time you click on a tulip you will hear an audio clip from a scene not included in the book! And those who subscribe will be notified when new audio clips are added!

Blue Moon by Alyson Noel


Eager to learn everything she can about her new abilities as an Immortal, Ever turns to her beloved Damen to show her the way. But just as her powers are increasing, Damen’s are waning. In an attempt to save him, Ever travels to the magical dimension of Summerland, where she learns the secrets of Damen’s tortured past; a past which he has always kept hidden from her. But in her quest to cure Damen, Ever discovers an ancient text that details the workings of time. Now Ever must chose between turning back the past and saving her family from the accident that claimed their lives—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows sicker every day...

So, this was the second book in The Immortals series. And, it was awesome! Ever and Damen are back!
I think this book was more "real" than Evermore. There was less swooning going on. Many other people have already said this, but it was nice to actually see Damen's flaws for once.
Roman was hilarious and weird. Yes, he wasn't good, but lets face it; some of the things he did were laugh-out-loud worthy.
This is a wonderful book, that many will enjoy.

Waiting on Wednesday

The Snowball Effect by Holly Nicole Hoxter
March 23, 2010

Lainey Pike can tell you everything you need to know about the people in her family just by letting you know how they died. Her reckless stepfather drove his motorcycle off the highway and caused the biggest traffic jam in years. Her long-suffering grandmother lived through cancer and a heart attack before finally succumbing to a stroke. And Lainey's mother--well, Lainey's mother hanged herself in the basement just days after Lainey's high school graduation.
Now Lainey's five-year-old brother is an orphan, and her estranged older sister is moving back home to be his guardian. Meanwhile, Lainey's boyfriend is thinking about having a family of their own, and her best friends are always asking the wrong sorts of questions and giving advice Lainey doesn't want to hear. As she tries to pull away from everything familiar, Lainey meets an intriguing new guy who, through a series of Slurpees, burgers, and snowballs, helps her to make peace with a parent she never understood.

The Treasure Map of Boys by E. Lockhart

The third book in the amazing Ruby Oliver series.

Ruby is back at Tate Prep, and it’s her thirty-seventh week in the state of Noboyfriend. Her panic attacks are bad, her love life is even worse, and what’s more:

Noel is writing her notes, Jackson is giving her frogs, Gideon is helping her cook, and Finn is making her brownies. Rumors are flying, and Ruby’s already-sucky reputation is heading downhill.

Not only that, she’s also: running a bake sale, learning the secrets of heavymetal therapy, encountering some seriously smelly feet, defending the rights of pygmy goats, and bodyguarding Noel from unwanted advances.

In this companion novel to The Boyfriend List and The Boy Book, Ruby struggles to secure some sort of mental health, to understand what constitutes a real friendship, and to find true love—if such a thing exists.

I loved this book! E. Lockhart is at it again, thrilling readers with the life of Ruby Oliver. Ruby's thought process is wonderful. You can tell she is stuck between guys and knowing she shouldn't date because of the events that have occurred previously in her life.
The way Ruby acts. The twists and turns in her life. The boys.
This is an awesome series and an awesome book. Ms. Lockhart does a wonderful job writing from the point of view of a teen!

* Other books in this series are The Boyfriend List and The Boy Book.

Waiting for You by Susane Colasanti

I have read one other book by Susane Colasanti (When it Happens). And, it was amazing.

At the beginning of her sophomore year, Marisa is ready for a fresh start and, more importantly, a boyfriend. So when the handsome and popular Derek asks her out, Marisa thinks her long wait for happiness is over. But several bumps in the road—including her parents’ unexpected separation, a fight with her best friend, and a shocking disappointment in her relationship with Derek—test Marisa’s ability to maintain her new outlook. Only the anonymous DJ, whose underground podcasts have the school’s ear, seems to understand what Marisa is going through. But she has no idea who he is—or does she?

Waiting for You was an incredibly sweet book. I read it when I was camping, and after I was done, all I wanted to do was re-read it.
Nash was amazing. A totally dream guy. I would have loved to know someone like him. Marissa's bond with her father is incredible, and I think everyone should be that close to their dad's.
Because I am a sucker for a good happy ending, this books ending really suited me!
Susane Colasanti is a wonderful author. Her writing makes you want to jump into her books and get to know all of her miraculous characters. I strongly recomend Waiting for You.

13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson

Inside little blue envelope 1 are $1,000 and instructions to buy a plane ticket. In envelope 2 are directions to a specific London flat. The note in envelope 3 tells Ginny: Find a starving artist. Because of envelope 4, Ginny and a playwright/thief/ bloke–about–town called Keith go to Scotland together, with somewhat disastrous–though utterly romantic–results. But will she ever see him again? Everything about Ginny will change this summer, and it’s all because of the 13 little blue envelopes.

So, this book was written by Maureen Johnson. Which basically means that it is most likely hilariously funny and amazing.
But, I can't say that this was one of my favorite books. It was light and funny and a nice read. But, it took me awhile to "get into".
The journey that Ginny makes is really cool and adventuress. I wish I could travel like her some day. The places she travels to are amazing! Maureen writes her books beautifully, and this was no exception!

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Jay Asher is a genius.

Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker--his classmate and crush--who committed suicide two weeks earlier. On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out how he made the list.

I read this book awhile ago, and I was sucked into the story. After reading it, I told all of my friends about it. I actually had to buy a new copy because mine had been passed around so many times.

This books is wonderful. The topic is a pretty hard one to stomach, but once you have already read the book, you are glad you did.

I cried so much when reading this. But, I wasn't crying because this teenager had committed suicide. I was crying for Clay and all the other people who were on the tapes. Because, though what they did lead Hannah to kill herself, they still had to listen to the tapes. I especially felt bad for Clay because he was in love with Hannah and he had to listen to what the other people did.

Jay Asher is a wonderful author. I can't wait to read his next book!

Thirteen Reasons Why is a must read.

So Yesterday by Scott Westerfeld


Ever wonder who was the first kid to keep a wallet on a big chunky chain, or wear way-too-big-pants on purpose? What about the mythical first guy who wore his baseball cap backwards? These are the Innovators, the people on the very cusp of cool. Seventeen-year-old Hunter Braque's job is finding them for the retail market. But when a big-money client disappears, Hunter must use all his cool-hunting talents to find her. Along the way he's drawn into a web of brand-name intrigue—a missing cargo of the coolest shoes he's ever seen, ads for products that don't exist, and a shadowy group dedicated to the downfall of consumerism as we know it.

Good things really do come in small packages!
This novel is small, only 255 pages. But, it was still very good. Mr. Westerfeld brought innovation to a novel, like no other.
So Yesterday had daring people and suspense. The whole idea was very cool.
The idea of the social pyramid. And how innovators and trendsetters work, and their relationship with each other.
This novel was cool, innovative, and I LOVED it!

The Last Days by Scott Westerfeld

Strange things are happening: old friends disappearing, angels (or devils) clambering on the fire escapes of New York City. But for Pearl, Moz, and Zahler, all that matters is the band. As the city reels under a mysterious epidemic, the three combine their talents with a vampire lead singer and a drummer whose fractured mind can glimpse the coming darkness. Will their music stave off the end? Or summon it? Set against the gritty apocalypse that began in Peeps, The Last Days is about five teenagers who find themselves creating the soundtrack for the end of the world.

This was the only book by Scott Westerfeld that I wasn't crazy about. It was a companion novel to Peeps. (my review here.) To me, The Last Days was really hard to get through. And I didn't really like the constant changing of perspectives. I think they helped a bit, but Im just not a big fan of it.
I have read many wonderful books by Scott Westerfeld, and I wish I liked this one more.

I Lost....

So, remember that dare? Well, I kind of just saw Harry Potter. It has been 4 days since it came out. I had to wait a week. So, I kind of lost the contest. Which for me means eating a blenderized happy meal. I don't know when I can do this. Or, if my parents will let me do this. But, it MUST BE DONE.
But, I have to say, it was totally worth it. I LOVED the movie. I really want to see it again. I probably will too.
I actually almost cried at one part. Can you guess what part it was???
But, yea, the movie was really good. You should all see it. It wasn't my favorite though. My favorite is number 3 (Sirius and Lupin.....). But it was my second favorite!!!

Coffeehouse Angel by Suzanne Selfors (Published July 21, 2009)

This was an incredibly sweet book.

When Katrina spots a homeless guy sleeping in the alley behind her grandmother’s coffee shop, she decides to leave him a cup of coffee, a bag of chocolate-covered coffee beans, and some pastries to tide him over. Little does she know that this random act of kindness is about to turn her life upside down. Because this adorable vagrant, Malcolm, is really a guardian angel on a break between missions. And he won’t leave until he can reward Katrina’s selflessness by fulfilling her deepest desire. Now if only she could decide what that might be . . .

This was a very sweet and charming book. Katrina kind of annoyed me though. I understand how she didn't know what she desired. But, she could have told Malcolm that, instead of telling him the wrong thing two times. And, not only did she do that to Malcolm, but she also wouldn't give him the time of day. And, Malcolm was being perfectly nice to her.

As for my opinion on Malcolm, yes, what he did would have made me scream and run away. But, what he did was also really really nice. But, I have to admit, when they mentioned a kilt, my mouth hung wide open.

This story had a very interesting plot. I mean, Katrina felt bad for a guy she thought was homeless so she gave him coffee and pastries. And, as a reward she gets her greatest desire fulfilled. Yes, it was drastically unrealistic . But, it was fun to read about. It also, in a way, teaches you that if you do good things, good things will happen to you.

Suzanne did a wonderful job writing this book. It had love, magic, confusion, coffee, and much much more.

I recommend this book. It is an adorable and quick read.

Never Slow Dance With a Zombie by E. Van Lowe August 18, 2009

Principal Taft's 3 Simple Rules for Surviving a Zombie Uprising:

Rule #1: While in the halls, walk slowly and wear a vacant expression on your face. Zombies won't attack other zombies.

Rule #2: Never travel alone. Move in packs. Follow the crowd. Zombies detest blatant displays of individuality.

Rule #3: If a zombie should attack, do not run. Instead, throw raw steak at to him. Zombies love raw meat. This display of kindness will go a long way.

On the night of her middle school graduation, Margot Jean Johnson wrote a high school manifesto detailing her goals for what she was sure would be a most excellent high school career. She and her best friend, Sybil, would be popular and, most important, have boyfriends. Three years later, they haven't accomplished a thing!

Then Margot and Sybil arrive at school one day to find that most of the student body has been turned into flesh-eating zombies. When kooky Principal Taft asks the girls to coexist with the zombies until the end of the semester, they realize that this is the perfect opportunity to live out their high school dreams. All they have to do is stay alive....

Peeps by Scott Westerfeld

Oh boy... another vampire book.

A year ago, Cal Thompson was a college freshman more interested in meeting girls and partying than in attending biology class. Now, after a fateful encounter with a mysterious woman named Morgan, biology has become, literally, Cal's life.

Cal was infected by a parasite that has a truly horrifying effect on its host. Cal himself is a carrier, unchanged by the parasite, but he's infected the girlfriends he's had since Morgan. All three have turned into the ravening ghouls Cal calls Peeps. The rest of us know them as vampires. It's Cal's job to hunt them down before they can create more of their kind. . . .

This wasn't your typical vampire book. Scott Westerfeld worked his magic and put a Sci-Fi spin onto it. I remember that when I read this, I couldn't stop reading. I get car stick and I couldn't stop reading it. When I got home, I went straight to my backyard, sat in the grass, and read. These "vampires" were creative and very well structured. The idea of "parasite positives" are very cool and innovative.

This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

This was the first Sarah Dessen book that I had read. It was what made me want to read more of her books.

Remy doesn't believe in love. And why should she? Her romance novelist mother is working on her fifth marriage, and her father, a '70s hippie singer, left her with only a one-hit wonder song to remember him by. Every time Remy hears "This Lullaby," it feels like "a bruise that never quite healed right." "Wherever you may go / I will let you down / But this lullaby plays on..." Never without a boyfriend, Remy is a compulsive dater, but before a guy can go all "Ken" on her (as in "ultra boyfriend behavior") she cuts him off, without ever getting close or getting hurt. That's why she's stunned when klutzy, quirky, alterna-band boy Dexter inserts himself into her life and refuses to leave. Remy's been accepted to Stanford, and she plans on having her usual summer fling before tying up the loose ends of her pre-college life and heading for the coast. Except Dexter's not following Remy's tried-and-true rules of break-up protocol. And for the first time, Remy's questioning whether or not she wants him to.

At first when I was reading this, I didn't really like it. But, as I kept reading. I grew to love it. Dexter was annoyingly sweet. I wanted to punch him, but at the same time I wanted to jump into the story and give him a hug. This was a very good book. The characters are magical and the story gracefully falls off the page and into your mind.

Pretty in Pink Review (MOVIE)


Thing from the back of the movie...not a summary, but something else...
Molly Ringwald is the smart girl from the wrong side of the tracks. Andrew McCarthy is the rich boy who genuinely loved her. And Jon Cryer is... just Duckie. Written by John Hughes and directed by Howard Deutch, Pretty in Pink will take you back to the prom... the laughter, the tears, and that very first kiss.

This was also a very good movie. It had the perfect about of cute! I highly recoment it. I am very happy I was dared to watch this, it was fun!

Waiting on Wednesday

Andromeda Klein by Frank Portman
August 25, 2009

Andromeda Klein is a quiet, booky girl with an unexciting life. Until her world takes a turn for the weird. Strangely and suddenly Andromeda’s tarot card readings have begun to predict events with bizarrely literal accuracy. It seems impossible, but it looks like her once-upon-a-time-partner-inoccultism, Daisy Wasserstrom, has begun to harass her. Which wouldn’t be quite as strange if Daisy hadn’t died the year before. But what is weird is getting arguably worse. Omens, dreams, cards hidden inside a hollowed out book, and images from a file of comics drawn by a previous inhabitant of her family’s suburban duplex are all coming together to contain hints of buried truths concerning her family, her circle of “friends,” her cat, and her secret, estranged, much older and forbidden boyfriend-in-theory. And as Andromeda tries to figure it all out, she finds herself in a whole world of creepy you couldn’t even begin to make up.

Hey Everyone!
I just wanted to let you all know, that I haven't really scheduled reviews this week. But next week, since I will be gone on a week long trip, I have set a lot of reviews to post! A LOT! So, I just wanted to update you all.

Best Wishes,

Review of The Breakfast Club (MOVIE)

Good Movie...

Summary (taken from the back of the movie)-

They were five students with nothing in common, faced with spending a Saturday detention together in their high school library. At 7 a.m., they had nothing to say, but by 4 p.m., they had bared their souls to each other and become good friends. To the outside world they were simply the Jock, the Brain, the Criminal, the Princess, and the Kook, but to each other, they would always be The Breakfast Club.

I am glad I was dared to watch this movie. It was really really good. I couldn't stop watching. Friends would IM me. And I would be all "I AM TRYING TO WATCH MOVIE.SHHH."
This movie was hilarious. And I loved it. And you should all really go out and watch it now. I mean, really. You should.

My Trip to LA

So this last weekend, I went on a trip to LA to go visit some family. I had to sit in a car for EIGHT HOURS!!!!
But, after the horrid car ride, I got to meet Khy of Frenetic Reader . We met at a Barnes and Nobles. We were look at books at talking for about an hour. Needless to say it was really fun!

She was the first book blogger that I have met.

Some people would ask:
What could you possibly do in one section of a bookstore for an hour?

Well, let me tell you. There was a lot of book organizing. The YA section there was very un-organized.
I mean, they had a WHOLE table devoted to stacks and stacks of Twilight books and magazines with Robert Pattinson's face on it. But, they didn't even had an organized YA section.

But, they did have an impeccable YA section. It was HUGE compared to the ones we have here.

At the end, I ended up buying two books; Geektastic:Stories from the Nerd Herd and The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan.

And, when we were done visiting each other, Khy gave me one of the best birthday presents ever.

She gave me:


For those of you who don't know, I am a huge David Levithan fangirl (David, if you are reading this, don't me scared. And HI).

I have read all of his books except for the ones he co-wrote with three other authors under the name David Van Etten. I would have read them, but they don't sell them here and they don't have them in the libraries here, because I guess book-places here enjoy tortureing me.
But, yea, without question David Levithan is tied with another author as my all time favorite author. He beats JK Rowling, which in my book, is a hard thing to do.

So, Khy giving me a signed copy makes her, like, a god.

When she gave it to me I was speechless. There was screaming, but there was jumping. Im not kidding when I say that when I got to my car I started petting the book and I wouldn't stop telling my mom that is was signed. She was like. "I KNOW! I was there..." . 5 minutes after leaving the bookstore, I texted Khy and was like "You are the nest person ever. Godly. I am in shock..."

So, you could say I was excited.

That was a little bit about my trip to LA. I have pictures, but I still can't find my camera cord and I can't find my parents camera.

You should all go check Khy's blog out. She is a fantastic blogger and person.
