choosing my february tbr 24 blog header - Choosing A TBR (Short Story) StoryTime Wednesday #24

Heyo Bookaholics! Storytime Wednesday Is Back! “If I hadn’t gone and purchased another five books, maybe choosing my TBR for this month wouldn’t be so hard.” Lilly’s exasperated sigh reached the phone, and a laugh was played back. “You know Lil.” Rachel’s voice was muffled from the speaker being smooshed into the blanket of Lilly’s bed. “I think this book thing is crazy, but maybe a little logic can help you.” Lilly nudged the phone a little to clear the […]

over her face 23 blog header - Over Her Face (SW#23) - Short Story

Heyo Bookaholics! It’s been busy. Once upon a time, there was a King who had two sons. One was tall with long blonde hair and broad shoulders. His name was Tristan. The other son was shorter, older with cropped chestnut brown hair, and the beginnings of a beard forming around his jaw. The King was content with his heirs. Two respectable young men who could hold their own in a battle. He raised them all on his own, with a […]

Heyo Bookaholics! There was no plan for this one… There was no plan for any of them. The Room Of Nightmares. Where are you? The room is bare, no walls or doors, or tables, or chairs. The room has white walls, bright white walls. Not like the freshly painted kind either. These are the kind that look like they were crafted of a matte white sheet smoothed to perfection, no shine at all. You spin around and around and around […]

Heyo Bookaholics! The photo in the header image inspired this post. King of Ruins He picks up his father’s crown from atop the dead man’s head. The old man’s eyes staring blankly back at him, the whites glistening from the tears he had shed while the pain and shock of his death set in. His castle had fallen around him and now one large chunk lay on top of his bottom half; one could only assume the state of his […]

Heyo Bookaholics! R U OK? For this storytime, I chose to write from a prompt found off of Pinterest. I see so many of the posts in this format and I’ve always wanted to write using them but never had the idea on what to write until now! The prompt I am using is pictured below. I didn’t attach a link as I am unsure of the official origin of the photo, but I believe it could be from this […]

Heyo Bookaholics!

I’d had the pounding heart and shortness of breath before, usually during a minor inconvenience, which just turned into one major inconvenience. I called it “a weird feeling” or “my chest hurts”. Never had […]

my heart beats for you 9 blog header - My Heart For You - Short Story (SW)

Heyo Bookaholics! The night before I wrote this, I finished reading All of This Is True By Lygia Day Peñaflor and I was a mess of confusion and full of inspiration. It left me with so many more questions than if it had ended 20 pages earlier than it had; I’ll have my review posted next Monday sharing all of my thoughts about this book; the good, the bad and the irony. So after reading, I had this brilliant idea […]
