About Cindy Mezni:

"Cindy Mezni is a young Swiss writer. She discovered her passion - became obsession - for writing by chance, during a winter afternoon where she had fun by rewriting the story of a popular book because the sequence of events were not to her liking.

Consequently, she began to publish fictions and fanfictions on Internet for almost two years to share her stories and submit them to criticism to improve her writing. After receiving accolades from the jury of a writing competition at her school, Cindy finally took the path of publishing with The Last Hope series then the N√ęphyr trilogy and Poisoned Iris trilogy - and many other books in the future, she hopes.

Since the said winter afternoon, not a day goes by without her fingers touching her computer's keyboard to write new fantasy or sci-fi adventures..."-Cindymezni.com

About Shadow's Dangers:

Shadow's Dangers is a Young Adult Paranormal Romance about a universe beyond our own and a war brought to our world. It is a teen book and does go into quite some detail about fights and blood. I wouldn't recommend this book to anybody who is squeamish or doesn't like blood. If you like alternate universes, life or death situations, and good vs. evil this is the book for you. This is the first installment in The Last Hope Trilogy.

Interview with Marissa Meyer

Website
Recently I contacted Marissa Meyer, author of The Lunar Chronicles, through Goodreads and I asked her some questions. So here is my interview with Marissa.




Q.  What inspired you to become a writer? 


A.  I always wanted to be a writer, ever since I was a little kid and learned that such a job existed, and you could even get paid for it! I had a really big imagination growing up and I always loved to read, so the thought that someday people might read my stories, too, was a huge motivator and is now a dream come true. 



Q.  Are you writing any other books beside the Lunar Chronicles?


A.  Yes - I hope that this is just the start of a long writing career! My first book to follow the Chronicles will be HEARTLESS, a prequel to Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" focused on the Queen of Hearts. After that I hope to start a new series, which I think is going to be based on superheroes and supervillains.



Q.  Do you ever wonder what your life would be like if you hadn't written Cinder?


A.  Oh, I imagine it wouldn't have changed much from where I was before the book sold. I would still be working as a freelance proofreader and typesetter, which was my job before I became a full-time writer, and I really enjoyed that job. I would also still be writing and attempting
to sell a book - I would have kept trying until the day I died.



Q.  Who are your favorite authors? Have you ever met one of those authors?


A.  There are so many brilliant authors, especially in today's YA market, and I've been lucky to meet many of them, and even consider many to now be dear friends! Some of my personal favorites are Leigh Bardugi (SHADOW AND BONE), Rosemary Clement-Moore (SPIRIT AND DUST), and Robin LaFevers (GRAVE MERCY). That's just the tip of the iceburg, though - there are many, many writers that I admire greatly!



Q.   What was your favorite book as a kid?



A.  I'm not sure I had just one favorite, but I do remember reading Anne of Green Gables over and over again. I felt such an affinity with Anne and her overactive imagination. She was definitely my fictional kindred spirit! (Except for the whole orphan thing...)

Harry Potter Moment of the Week #1

This week I have decided to join in on Uncorked Thoughts Meme: Harry Potter Moment of the Week. 

Description: "This is a meme hosted by me here at my blog :).The aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/ films/ J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related! I will be picking a topic within HP for us to focus on each week and then if anyone wants to take part feel free! All I ask is to link back here, to my blog :)."- quoted from Uncorked Thoughts. Today's topic is: 

 

Scariest Magical Creature. 




For me it's the Inferi, dead bodies brought back to life by evil wizards. The thought of corpses grabbing on to you and dragging you underwater to drown scares me. These things are at the top of my scary creatures list barely beating dementors. I couldn't even read the scene of Harry Potter where Harry was attacked by them until my second time reading the series.One thing that dementors have over them is that Inferi can be killed with fire while dementors can't be killed at all.

In the comments leave a link to your blog post or (if you don't have a blog) tell me which one you think is scariest and why.
