If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

FF- Imaginary English and Freebie Friday

Two things for you today- read &enjoy. I'll make it short and sweet. 

Increase Blog Followers


This weeks Question:

Back to school. Create a reading list for the imaginary English Lit class you’ll be teaching this semester.

My reading list for an English Lit class-

Alice in Wonderland

The Monk by Mathew Lewis

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield

I would choose these three books because they each represent something in the written world- Alice is that fantasy and internal struggle of facing problems. Plus I just love the poem.

The Monk because not only did the young man write it in a few short months way back in the day- but it also represents how a religion can effect the writing world.

Finally Thirteenth Tale- that's just plain damn good writing with a fascinating story. 

 

Now for Friday freebies:

Zombie stories from thirty-two of your favorite female authors!
**WARNING**This is a work of paranormal fiction that has elements of romance, thriller and horror.
Her whole life, it had just been the two of them. Before her mother’s last breath, she gave Camille the information she had craved her entire life: the identity of her father. Daring to contact him, Camille was welcomed by an entire family she never knew existed. But nothing comes without a price, as she discovers when her family claims a legendary heritage tracing back to a Centaur touched by Zeus.
Roseline Enescue didn't ask to become an immortal, to have all of the guests at her wedding slaughtered, or be forced into marriage with a man whose lust for blood would one day ignite the vampire legend.

Nothing is more relaxing than finding a favorite spot to curl up with a good book! My problem is when I become interested, everything goes to pot because I can't stop reading!

Good call for Alice in Wonderland! I would love to have that book read by my class and I would love my teachers to have me read that book. :)
