Geekerella follows Elle and Darien, two teenagers who have one thing in common: Starfield. Elle is Starfield obsessed – she runs a blog about it and has watched the television series numerous times. Darien is set to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the new film adaptation, but the fandom are not happy about his casting. People like Elle see him as another teen heartthrob without any interest in the Starfield world. When a cosplay event at ExcelsiCon is announced, Elle sees it as a chance to leave her awful family and use the prize of a plane ticket to escape.
Last week I half-arsed participated in the BookTube-A-Thon! I know I just did a reading challenge, but I saw that so many people were participating, and it made me want to join in.
It’s August now! I started back at university yesterday and I cannot believe that it’s my last semester. I’m really bummed about that. Anyway, let’s get into all the books I read in July and what I plan to read in August.
Emily Duran is the only survivor of a plane crash that left her stranded in the Amazon jungle. Along with five other of her classmates, she spent her days struggling against the harsh conditions and dealing with their different views on how to survive. In their unique predicament, a new way of living is discovered filled with power struggles, betrayals, secrets and lies. When Emily is rescued, she must explain to everyone why she is the last left alive.
I watched a lot of great film and television in July. For eight days I went on a cruise and watched around five films while on the boat, so a lot of them were watched then. Otherwise, everything else was just viewed in my spare time.
I’m sort of out of ideas for posts at the moment. I thought I would just do ‘The Writer’s Tag’ because I’ve seen it around and have had it in my drafts for at least two months. It’s really fun to think about if you’re into writing.
I don’t read short stories very often, but when I do they often leave an impactful message with me. Short stories are very simple yet creative, and are a very useful form of practice for writers. If you ever have an idea for a novel, but don’t want to write it yet, then you can test it out as a short story and see if it works out for you.
