I‘m about to start this one. I loved its first installment

I couldn‘t find this book by Amy Cross in the database so I suggested it. I don‘t know how long it takes to appear so I‘m just using the “no title” option for now.

Although this book was written at a time when type writers were prevalent the information presented about how to present a manuscript, copy and proofing, copy editing, etc... are still very much relevant and important even if you are going to self-publish.

I got the second book in this series in my OwlCrate box. I know the two stories are not connected and I don‘t have to read this one to be able to read the second one but I am weird like that lol.

I have to be completely honest, while I read the books in the series as soon as they came out the last few books were not my favorite. However, this book we see the return of Nalini Singh‘s previous interesting sweet but interesting stories. I‘m not sure what happened with the previous books but she is definitely BACK with this one.

This is a good book with excellent essays. Some essays I will be returning too time and again while others I‘m glad I read to learn something interesting but not in the scope I‘m interested in. Parts of them will probably be something I return too though.

Insightsintobooks That sounds like a good book. 1y
Ciannait @Insightsintobooks also a little bit technical 😊 1y

I really enjoyed this installment of the Addison Lockhart series. The story kept me guessing til the end and the side stories were good.

This was basically a list of words and English language concepts that have been misused by people and a witty explanation of them.

3.5 this was a good book though at times very confusing. Some concepts were explained well but others were not. All in all, there was some good information there but some of it needed a better explanation.

Now that I have stopped focusing on whether the story was spooky/scary or not, I can say that I enjoyed the plot of the book. I did find it predictable in places but over all it was okay

blurb

I‘m on page 145 and learning a lot, but I‘m also getting a little confused. I‘m not sure if the story in my head really fits into the steps that this book is explaining.

RJHowe It is a good book but his structure is pretty complex and a little unwieldy. Like most books on the structure of story I think it can be used for ideas and guidance but not as a strict template. 2y
Ciannait @RJHowe yep, totally agree. I am learning quite a bit but somethings just don‘t fit with how my story wants to be written. Right now it is going all over the place lol 2y
RaimeyGallant I have this one too, and I didn't get very far. Maybe I should pick it up again. 2y
Ciannait @RaimeyGallant it has some interesting ideas for sure. 2y

I‘ve decided not to judge based on how scary the story is but by how well the story and characters are written.

I‘m beginning to think that I am no longer afraid of scary stories. This book had a good premise but...I hated the heroine. She ruined it all for me. 2/5 stars

I‘m going to start this today

I‘m so bad, I actually read this at work by sitting 2 hours straight reading. It was a good installment that finished one chapter of this story and left room for more if the author wants to revisit the story.

When I finally sat down to read the book I finished it in one sitting, that is how easy it was to read. It was full of common sense information that you might think you know but you really don‘t or at least need to focus on. The book also had some good sections that I will be referring back too from time to time.

This is the second book in The Ghost of RedRise House Series. I read the book in two sittings mostly because I had to go to bed last night. I loved everything about the story so far and I feel like this installment was actually better than the first. It moved quicker and the story was smoother.

After the first chapter and a half everything went down hill. The other gave descriptions of other methods in the remaining chapters...or was it a continuation of the Snowflake Method...I honestly couldn't tell and didn't care. So why didn‘t I completely bail? Welp, after reading the first half of the second chapter I got an elevator pitch for my novel, a one page synopsis and character outlines...er sort of.

blurb
Ciannait

This book is tiny, but even so I‘m reading it at snail pace because I‘m doing the work it is asking. How do I feel about it? Not sure yet...
