Emma's Poetry Corner: OTP Love

Hey guys! Here is a poem about love....apply it to your favorite OTP and feels will ensue. Let me know what you think!  

You have climbed inside my skin
navigated through the desert of my soul
fighting the hot, harsh wind
belonging to someone who has been broken before.

Your determination spurned you onward,
even after you found that I was empty
a pumpkin whose insides were scraped out
and a mask carved on the outside.

You have felt the pressuring loneliness
dragging me into the watery depths
of my own despair but still
you took care to swim through it
strong enough to carry us both.

You know all of my secrets
your fingerprints are on my heart
from where you tried to fix it
a broken mirror that would never be whole
but cracks are what make us human, right?

Emma's Poetry Corner

Hey guys! My name is Emma and I'm a friend of Sasha's who writes poetry. I'm going to be posting here about once a week. I'll post poetry about books, movies, or sometimes just random things that I write! For this week, here's something that I wrote about The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Enjoy and leave comments about what you think! 

“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars
but in ourselves.”
That’s what Shakespeare said.
But what did he mean? That it’s all your fault?
I blame the stars for taking you away.
We were both damaged with no hope
but somehow, you managed
to give me a forever within numbered days.
I blame the stars for taking you away,
But I also thank them for giving me
you
and all the time we had
our little infinity.

Branded summery:

Twenty years ago the Commander came into power and murdered all who opposed him. In his warped mind, the seven deadliest sins were the downfall of our society. He created the Hole where sinners are branded according to their sins and might survive a few years. At best.
Now LUST wraps around my neck like blue fingers strangling me.   I’ve been accused of a crime I didn’t commit and now the Hole is my new home.
Darkness. Death. Violence. Pain.
Now, every day is a fight for survival. But I won’t die. I won’t let them win.
The Hole can’t keep me. The Hole can’t break me.
I am more than my brand. I’m a fighter.
My name is Lexi Hamilton, and this is my story.

Alienated read-along discussion post!


Today is the last day of the Alienated read-along! So many of you participated in the read-along and LOVED the book.

In the comment section of this post lets talk all about Alienated (WITH SPOILERS) because the feels are real and I for one need to express them!

We will start off the discussion with this question:

How did you like Alienated and what was your favorite part in the book and why?

I LOVED Alienated and my favorite part was the first time Aelyx and Cara went to school because seriously, that scene was intense and just all around really interesting. 

Tell me your favorite part below!

The next question is:

What do you think happen in Invaded (the second book in the series)?

I personally think Jaxen is going to try take Cara away from Aelyx while she is on L'eihr and he is on earth. I also hope everything gets resolved down on earth because it's sure hectic at the moment!

What are your predictions?

Currently reading 'Scarlet' by Marissa Meyer

I am currently LOVING The Lunar Chronicles! I'm on book two, Scarlet and so far the story and writing is truly fantastic! Sadly I haven't had a lot of time to just sit down and become apart of the story because of my hectic schedule but luckily the weekend is just a day away.


I've heard from multiple people that Scarlet is better then Cinder, if thats right then Scarlet must be out of this world (no pun intended)!

What are you currently reading? Anything you would suggest me to read and review next?
