Imaginative Discussion: What is a LOVE TRIANGLE actually?

The idea for this discussion popped into my head when Tika @ Fangirl Confessions started ranting on her Twitter about how ridiculous fans are for getting angry that a certain ship didn’t work out in a certain book (sorry, I don’t wanna spoil anyone!), and that they were blaming it on love triangles. And then she said this: It’s not even a love triangle. Leaving one guy, and getting to know, then falling for another is NOT a love triangle people. — Tika (@astoldbyfANGIRL) May 6, 2016 And I was just there like HOLY CRAP SOMEONE SAID IT. SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT. So here more »

Imaginative Discussions: Myself in 5 Characters

Vane at Books with Chemistry created a wonderful self-characterization discussion through YA book characters.  When I read her own list, I thought it was brilliant and beautiful to use books and wonderful characters to describe how we see ourselves. It is difficult to show some of  your qualities and parts of your personality to the rest of the world, or the community, when there is so much other noise happening, and when we can lose parts of who we are through the sterilization of online communication. Today, I am sharing a bit of myself on the blog and describing myself with more »

Imaginative Discussion: Are Fantasy Books the IN thing for Young Adult and WHY?

HIYA I’m back with another discussion! It’s been quite awhile since I posted a discussion topic on Great Imaginations, or rather anything for that matter. I’ve been busy with the start of school, but I promise you, I’m back for good now. Anyway, have you noticed lately how fantasy books have been popping up more and more in the world of Young Adult? I have. It would be pretty obvious for me, since I’m constantly on the lookout for more fantasy books, but woah, it seems like they’re EVERYWHERE these days. You walk past a whole shelf of books without seeing more »

Imaginative Discussions: Book Blogging Blues

Hi everyone! I was going to write a review right here. But, as you can see, this is not a book review. It is a white flag. A flag raised up, declaring that my full blown, irritated, awakened depression has finally started to interfere with blogging to the point where I am panicking. I don’t wish to take you down this road, but in short: my job sucks, I can’t stand other people, I’m failing at social media, I’m failing twice as hard on commenting on other’s blogs, and I’ve seemed to really fallen down into a reading dark hole. more »

Simple Colloquial-ish Words or Hard SAT Words?

Simple Colloquial-ish Words or Hard SAT Words?

Disclaimer: I apologize in advance if I offend anyone, author or blogger, but I am sincerely just curious about this particular topic. Here’s a funny thing that happened: A friend of mine saw me typing out the title of this discussion post, and then proceeded to ask “Wait, isn’t colloquial a difficult SAT word too?” I just shrugged, because honestly? I have no idea. My English teacher would always wrote those words in huge, red ink on my essay, and I would of course, be dismayed and saddened because yet another reminder that my English is not as fabulous as more »

Imaginative Discussions: YA – Damsel in Distress?

In today’s book scene, YA is under attack again. Not from adults who roll their eyes and claim that adults need to read more adulty novels, or from parents who thought they might have seen a bad word in the middle of a page on the last chapter, like “underwear” or “damn” or “free will.” No, this time, we have a new breed of invaders who have sounded the war horns and declared that YA will be conquered and destroyed, and that they will become the new kings of Twilight and Divergent land. This new type of invader is….the New more »
