Review: The Looking Glass Wars
Guest blogger and teen boy reviewer reviews The Looking Glass Wars
The Looking Glass Wars is a novel similar to Alice in Wonderland. You think it’s just the same as Lewis Carroll’s novel however Frank Beddor adds different twists and turns that keep you guessing on what will happen next. Not only are there unexpected twists and turns Frank Beddor added extraordinary details so you have an exact image of what is going on in the story.
Instead of adding the same exact characters as in Alice in Wonderland the author adds different characteristics and features about each of the characters. There is a wider variety of characters and items in the novel.
This novel was a fantastic book. It’s one of the books that you just can’t stop reading and you never want it to end. I would definitely recommend this book. This was an amazing book.

Floods of Life
Sometimes life encroaches on our ability to get much writing done. Three weeks ago I came home from a family vacation to find our house flooded from a loose fridge/icemaker hose. My basement office was one of the rooms hits. So, dealing with the aftermath and being displaced from my office has made it difficult to do as much writing as I'd like, let alone post to my blog.
What are some of the routine things or difficulties of life that keep you from your writing?
