BOOK SPINE POETRY
What do you think?
MASH-UP: ARTSY YA CHARACTERS
I love and appreciate art of any kind from poetry to architecture. I also like to paint and sketch sometimes so, I decided to highlight some of the artsy characters in YA.
We all know that Peeta is a great painter along with being a great baker. His his camouflaging skills were great in The Hunger Games and I loved that he painted Rue in Catching Fire.
THE PERFORMER OF ARTS
I haven’t read John Green’s Will Grayson, Will Grayson yet. I only know that it has a character who performs musicals. I love this so much. Also, I loved that Willem De Ruiter from Gayle Forman’s Just One Day performs Shakespearean plays.
THE COMIC BOOK ARTIST
Trevor from Kasie West’s Pivot Point is a comic book artist and this is probably why I adore him as much as I do. It’s a very cool hobby to have.
THE INSTRUMENT PLAYER
I only know that Mia Hall from Gayle Forman’s If I Stay plays cello and I think that is great. I’d love to read more about character who play instruments in YA.
Are you taking part in Love-a-Thon? Let me know below.
I like your name, especially because it's long 😀 Heir of fire is also one of my most anticipated books. You know, I never realized you are from Pakistan, cool! Watching TV shows definitely counts, it's also on my list as hobby.
So far away! I agree–Vicious was a great book! I'm just starting on Schwab's other book The Archived before moving onto the Unbound, so I hope I like it as much as Vicious! Nice to meet you!
And just because I fail at Blogspot comments and having them link to the right account, here's my blog to help you figure out who I am! 😛 Playing Jokers
Oh yes, VE Schwab should totally write her version of Inception. And the Vicious movie is going to be EPIC (hopefully *fingers crossed*)
Btw, I <3 your blog name, too.
I CANNOT WAIT FOR IN A HANDFUL OF DUST!! God I loved Not A Drop To Drink so much!! Also, totally didn't know you were from Pakistan! Very cool! Also…book version of Breakfast Club written by Gayle?? I LOVE YOU.
And your book spine poetry is gorgeous! Both the words and the graphic!
I would love to see The Breakfast Club as a book too! It's one of my favourite movies ever and we're watching it now at school and I just can't help but squeal whenever Brian comes out. He's too cute omg. And your book spine poetry is so good!!! I love love love the use of all the titles! 🙂

I really enjoyed reading your interview and poetry! I've discovered Two Door Cinema Club's music recently and I've been loving it- what are your top 3 songs by them? I love discovering new music so let me know if you have any other recommendations! Also, after reading your interview, I'm even more excited to read The Raven Cycle! And I've heard a lot about Vicious, but I have copies of The Near Witch and The Archived I'll probably read first. Have you read either of those?

YAY! Asian bloggers unite! 🙂 I do love your blog name, as it does roll off the tongue. Makes me happy that you're anticipating Heir of Fire too! Also, your book spine poem is absolutely lovely <3
Very cool valentine! You did a great job tying in the valentine to the book. I have a copy of Vicious but haven't read it yet- soon I hope!
Fifi Islaih says
I love your book spine poem (:
OMG, best love letter EVER. I <333 that you " blacked" it out. It's SO VICTOR.
Totally going to leave a second comment, because of your mini challenges. I love the spine poetry <3 And this is one of the best love letters I've seen so far!
I love your blog name, partly because of the length and how it just rolls off the tongue!
While I haven't read Vicious, I can say I love that letter you wrote to him! It's so neat!
Your desert island answer was the highlight of my day! The image of hurling my well-worn HP books at some nameless creature cracked me up. I'm looking forward to catching up with your posts!

YESSS HEIR OF FIREEEE and I am still waiting for the 3rd Raven Cycle and the title because I GOTS TO KNOW. Gahhh What You Know is such a good song, every time it comes on it is impossible not to move along to it.
I love the spin you put on writing your book valentine letter! Very smart 🙂
I like your blog name! It would be awesome if Cinder became a movie, and (500) Days of Summer would also be a great book.
Christine D. says
I love when a character has a talent in a novel – it makes them even more realistic. I do recall Trevor's comic book skills. I found it even more realistic that he did not really feel confident about it, which is something many feel about their artisitic talent.
Cool blog name! I just finished binge watching Veronica Mars myself! I loved it and can't wait for the movie!
Becca Fowler (PivotBookReviews) says
Oooh I really want to binge watch Veronica Mars! I have never seen it before, but everyone always raves about it! I would LOVE a book written like The Breakfast Club! LOVE that movie! And Inception?! Awesome choices! I'm so glad you participated in LoveAThon, bc this is the first time I've been to your blog 🙂
xo, Becca @Pivot Book Reviews
I love your letter to Victor so much even though I haven't read Vicious. It just works so well! Really, really amazing!
THAT VICIOUS VALENTINE THOUGH!!! Seriously, I LOVE that!
I loved reading your interview and all your mini challenges! From your interview: Ahh I'm so glad you started watching Veronica Mars! I love this tv show 🙂 Also I loved your mention of the Harry Potter books as a weapon – that's so true!.
From your poem: that was really clever! I liked it 🙂
From your mash-up: This was great! I loved seeing all the different creative book characters and the photos were awesome with the post!
I absolutely loved reading through all of your Love-A-Thon posts! As for you interview, I find it awesome that we both picked The Breakfast Club! That movie rocks and is full of all the angst so I definitely think someone needs to get on writing that 😉 As for your Valentine, I LOVE that! I am glad you included the back story because I haven't had the pleasure of "meeting" Victor yet. I find it oddly amusing that he defaces Psychology books! Thank you again for participating in this event. I appreciate it so very much <3
2014 really is a great year so far for YA releases! I'm looking forward to the next Throne of Glass book, too (but I've gotta finish Crown of Midnight first).
Love your poem and valentine! I've never read Vicious but I thought it was very clever how you left blanks in the valentine 🙂
Kimi Barra says
Oh your blog name is really nice! I love it! 🙂 And I'd love to have The Breakfast Club written into a book! 🙂 Great loveathon post 😀

My top three Two Door Cinema Club songs are What You Know, Something Good Can Work, and Handshake.
I love discovering new music! I'd recommend Bastille, CHVRCHES, Krewella, HAIM, Chase & Status and Example. It's mostly electronic and alternative music both of which I love.
Yes! The Raven Cycle is one of my top five favorite series.
Nope, I haven't read any other Schwab book but I'll be reading The Archived and The Unbound soon. Vicious is so good, you should definitely think about reading it!
Ha ha thank you! Sometimes I'm like 'Too long, meh.' but mostly I just love the blog name.
Yes, another Heir of Fire high five! =D
I never thought about watching TV shows that way but now I think that it's definitely an addic- err hobby. =P
Vicious was my first Schwab book and it turned out to be perfect. I'll be reading The Archived and The Unbound together very soon so I hope the same!
Nice to meet you, too.
I've very high hopes for Vicious movie so yeah, it better be epic.
Thank you, Cayce!

I love artsy characters too, even though I'm sadly not blessed with artistic talents. Beautiful idea for a mash-up, Sana!
Hazel Lee Vaughn says
I love all your posts, Sana! There are so many new books to discover just from your interview itself, and I love getting to know more about you! Your book spine poetry is great, and I love how creative your letter to your book boyfriend is. I also really love your mash-up featuring all the artsy YA characters!
