This Heart Of Mine Was Made To Travel This World

Find a place from each continent that you can’t wait to visit. Explain why.

North America

For this continent I picked Montreal, Canada. Why you ask? Well not only is it beautiful year round but it has some great history and beautiful buildings. Plus my Parabatai, Sarah, lives there. I have been wanting to visit for a long time. I am trying to plan a trip there in October 2018 so I can partake in the Halloween fun they have there. Haunted Houses, Six Flags Halloween! It will be so much fun.

South America

For South American I chose the, Galapagos Islands. When I was a sophomore in college my earth science professor went to the islands during spring break. He showed us pictures from his trip and oh my it was so beautiful. I have known about the islands even before than. Reading about Darwin’s journeys there was the first time learning about the islands. It would be so much fun getting to experience the same places he visited.


I cheated a little for this continent. I could not pick just one single town/city. I picked a whole country. But its ok. I can make up my own rules. I chose, Scotland. There are tons of places throughout Europe I want to visit but Scotland in my number one stop! Everything about Scotland is breathtakingly beautiful. This history, the castles, the views. All so amazing. I have a slight obsession with Mary, Queen of Scots so I would love to visit all the places she was known to have lived at and been to.


Funny thing about Asia. I have never really thought about where I would want to visit. So I did some googling on the best destinations in Asia. I ran across a place called Pai, Thailand. WOW it was so beautiful in the pictures. It sounded like it had a lot of cool things to see and do. If you have been to parts of Asia that you feel are good places to visit with rich history let me know in the comments below.


So there are a couple of places I would like to visit in Australia but my first stop would be Perth, Australia. My sister from another misses lives there. She is my partner in crime. I would love to experience a Christmas in Australia. It would be strange since it is summer time down there instead of winter like in the USA. I always want to visit the beaches, go snorkeling, learn to speak Australian lingo and much much more!


This was a hard pick as well. There are so many places I want to see and experience in Africa. But my number one stop would probably be Egypt. I am a lover of all things history and getting to see the pyramids and experience the Egyptian culture would be a once in a lifetime adventure.


I know what you are thinking! Who in their right mind wants to visit that place? Well I actually do! For REAL! NO JOKE! I think it would be such an amazing experience to visit Antarctica. There are two places in Antarctica that are sometimes regarded as civilian “towns”. The one I chose to visit is the Argentinian Esperanza base in Hope Bay at the very tip of the Antarctic Peninsula. They both have facilities such as a school, medical facilities, gym etc. though are more accurately regarded as associations of the military and scientific operations. I think it would be great to experience both a winter and summer there. Who wants to join me?? I mean come on they have penguins!


What places on each continent would you pick to visit? Let me know below in the comments!





The Dead Zone by Stephen King review

“Johnny, the small boy who skated at breakneck speed into an accident that for one horrifying moment plunged him into The Dead Zone.

Johnny Smith, the small-town schoolteacher who spun the wheel of fortune and won a four-and-a-half-year trip into The Dead Zone.

John Smith, who awakened from an interminable coma with an accursed power—the power to see the future and the terrible fate awaiting mankind in The Dead Zone.”

Ok well….hmmmm….yea this is a no from me. It had potential to be a cool psychic story. The first 70ish pages were good but then it just fell flat.

The characters were dull, flat, bland. Ended up not caring for any of them. There was so much going on with the plot but it just didn’t flow right for me. King would switch to a different story line and then jump back to Johnny and then 50ish pages later he’d jump back and I had a hard time remember what they had to do with the story.

Ugh I don’t know. I don’t even know how to review this properly. I just didn’t like it. I’ve been finding that a lot with King books lately. There are still ones I love but I think my taste is changing. Maybe 🤷🏻‍♀️

2/5 🌟 (and that’s being nice)

When Passion Meets Inspiration, An Obsession Is Born

Write about an obsession or obsessions


I have a lot of obsessions. But I narrowed it down to three. I am a lover of all things history. I love watching documentaries on just about everything. From dinosaurs, to Vikings, from the Ice Age to cavemen. Wars, falling of kingdoms to the building of new kingdoms. And also true crime. I feel like those are just as much a part of history as anything else is. I will start with what was my very first obsession as a kid.

World War II

My great-grandfather, Borislav (Bora) Cvetkovich, was born in Yugoslavia. He was a part of the Serbian Army. He served during World War II. I don’t remember the exact dates, but during the war him and some other solders were captured by the Nazis and put into a POW camp. He was there for about 2-3 years during the war before him and a handful of other guys managed to escape the camp and fled with their families to the USA. I use to listen to him talk about his time in the military, during the war and while a prisoner. I was immediately hooked and wanted to know everything I could about World War II. I was around the age of 10ish or so. After that I got my hands on anything I could that was related to World War II. I first read Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl. I was amazed at what had happened during the war. I was both fascinated and heartbroken. It is a dream of mine to go visit the Holocaust camps and find out which POW camp my great grandpa was in and see that are as well.

True Crime/Serial Killers

When I was about 14 years old I read Zodiac by Robert Graysmith. It was about the infamous serial killer. I was hooked! I guess you could say I developed an unhealthy obsession with anything true crime related. I was more intrigued by Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, and Edmund Kemper. I have slowly moved to many many more. I run another blog with my sister called Discover and Conquer (Blog) where we talk history and I do a lot of true crime related blogs. I do NOT in any way think their crimes are ok. They are not. I am just interested in how their mind work. What makes them so much different from non-criminals? I also watch a lot of true crime documentaries, tv shows, movies and so one.


My obsession with monarchies (royals) didn’t develope until my later years. I have always liked them, I was a huge Princess Di fan, but my love of royals has grown and expanded over the years. It all starts with King Henry VIII. Probably the most well-known King from the 1500s. I mean he did have a lot of wives and stirred up a lot of religious commotion. It then expanded to Mary, Queen of Scots. She is my number one queen. I have been trying to learn all I can about her. I also love Queen Mary I of England. Well known as Bloody Mary. She was the first daughter of King Henry VIII with his first wife Queen Katherine of Aragon. She was ruthless and sometimes a bit nasty. Then we have one of the most beloved queens of that time, Queen Elizabeth I of England. The Virgin Queen and also the daughter of King Henry VIII with his second wife, Queen Anne. My sister, Cat, and I are completely obsessed and do a lot of blogging, talking, watching and reading of royals. We are actually dedicating the entire month of June to blogs about King Henry VIII and his six wives. It is our dream to live in Scotland but also to travel all of Europe visiting places of Kings and Queens of long, long ago. One day we will make that dream come true.

What are some of your obsessions??

The Flibbertigibbet Friday that got forgotten 🤦🏻‍♀️

Well I knew it would happen one day. Just didn’t think it would be the 3rd week in January. Oh well. Shit happens. I thought about Flibbertigibbet Friday yesterday. Thinking about what I would tell you guys. Then the kids got home from school and Antony had homework and Taylor was bugging me because she was hungry (that kid is always hungry) so it got forgotten about. Plus there was the freaking out of the government shutdown too. Which effects my family.

So not a whole lot happened this last week. Just taking Kids to school, cleaning house, working on my Medical Terminology class. My Anatomy and Physiology class starts Monday. I’m also starting my new workout program Monday. I got the Shaun T-25 workout from my friend Sherrill to try. I also will be putting in applications next week for work. Yay! I like being busy.

Right now I am at the laundry mat drying clothes as I write this blog. It’s a warm 59f (15c) outside and going to get warmer. We are having a bit of a heatwave this weekend in Oklahoma. So I’m taking advantage of it. Open windows, airing out the house, wash all dog beds and blankets, scrub the kitchen floors (with 3 dogs, 2 cats and 2 Kids my kitchen is a disaster area).

The rest of my time will be watching football (American! I’m a Packers fan but since they are not in the playoffs I’m rooting for the Jaguars and Vikings to go to the Super Bowl), working on homework, hanging with my kids and reading.

I’m currently reading 2 books right now:

This one is a true crime. So far it’s interesting but a little slow. Hopefully it picks up soon.

And I am buddy reading this one with my friend Sophia. We both want to read the Castle Rock books in publication order. I read them all up to Needful Things almost 20 years ago. So most is a reread but I’m sure I have forgotten most parts anyway. I’m so excited for the new Castle Rock Hulu Show coming soon and of course King’s new book set to be released May 22, 2018!

Well that’s all I got for this week. Not a whole lot to bitch about but the year is just getting started. Give me time 🤣🤣. Hope everyone has a great weekend and fantastic week! See you next Friday!!!

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

“Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells—taken without her knowledge—became one of the most important tools in medicine. The first “immortal” human cells grown in culture, they are still alive today, though she has been dead for more than sixty years. If you could pile all HeLa cells ever grown onto a scale, they’d weigh more than 50 million metric tons—as much as a hundred Empire State Buildings. HeLa cells were vital for developing the polio vaccine; uncovered secrets of cancer, viruses, and the atom bomb’s effects; helped lead to important advances like in vitro fertilization, cloning, and gene mapping; and have been bought and sold by the billions.

Yet Henrietta Lacks remains virtually unknown, buried in an unmarked grave.

Now Rebecca Skloot takes us on an extraordinary journey, from the “colored” ward of Johns Hopkins Hospital in the 1950s to stark white laboratories with freezers full of HeLa cells; from Henrietta’s small, dying hometown of Clover, Virginia — a land of wooden slave quarters, faith healings, and voodoo — to East Baltimore today, where her children and grandchildren live and struggle with the legacy of her cells.

Henrietta’s family did not learn of her “immortality” until more than twenty years after her death, when scientists investigating HeLa began using her husband and children in research without informed consent. And though the cells had launched a multimillion-dollar industry that sells human biological materials, her family never saw any of the profits. As Rebecca Skloot so brilliantly shows, the story of the Lacks family — past and present — is inextricably connected to the dark history of experimentation on African-Americans, the birth of bioethics, and the legal battles over whether we control the stuff we are made of.

Over the decade it took to uncover this story, Rebecca became enmeshed in the lives of the Lacks family—especially Henrietta’s daughter Deborah, who was devastated to learn about her mother’s cells. She was consumed with questions: Had scientists cloned her mother? Did it hurt her when researchers infected her cells with viruses and shot them into space? What happened to her sister, Elsie, who died in a mental institution at the age of fifteen? And if her mother was so important to medicine, why couldn’t her children afford health insurance?”


This book was so amazing. It was a beautiful and heartbreaking story. It is a story that needs to be told over and over again and put into the history and science books. Henrietta Lacks. What do you even say about her? She may have grown up poor and had a rough life during these times of inequality in America but she was a strong and extraordinary women. She battled through so much, yet it always seemed like she had a smile on her face.

It was hard to read about how she grew up. Makes you feel like an ass when you bitch about the little things and take things for granted. Even in 2018 there is still hurt, poor, and racism yet it is easier to not see it in todays time. It is something we need to start seeing and talking about more. And it has started to happen. Thank goodness. I feel fortunate for never having to deal with racism. While I did not grow up rich what so ever, I did have a lot more advantages and things than even some people have now. It breaks my heart. I know what needs to be done but how to get it done is where I struggle. As of now I just try to lend my voice to those who may need a voice.

Ok so now that we got totally off track let’s get back to Henrietta. She tried to make the best of what she had. She was an amazing mother to her kids, an amazing wife to her husband and an amazing friend as well. Despite being diagnosed with an ugly disease at such a young age she never once let it stop her from taking care of her family. While in pain you would not have known it. Sadly that disease won out in the end. She was in her early 30’s. Most her kids were so young they didn’t remember their mother. When Henrietta died everyone just stopped talking about her, including her husband.

During a routine biopsy some cells were taken without her permission and used in a science lap. What happened next was nothing but extraordinary. I know if Henrietta had known what her cells were doing and how they could help millions of people she would be thrilled. She was all about helping others when she was alive. But this was during Jim Crow law times. There was major segregation and Blacks were treated was differently than whites. The doctors and scientist never told her family that they took the cells. They tricked them into an autopsy after she died saying they wanted to help his children in the future but they were really taking more cells from her.

Henrietta was gone and just became known as HeLa. It took over 20 years after her death before her family even knew what was going on. That a part of their mother was still living and helping millions of people survive. It took an emotional toll on her kids, specially her daughter, Deborah. I adored Deborah in the book.

What is so sad is that while biotech and pharmaceutical companies were making millions of dollars from Henrietta’s cells, her family was dirt poor, most lacked an education and could not even afford health insurance. How sad is that. And to Deborah it wasn’t even about the money. She just wanted to know who her mother was. She didn’t know anything about her. She had a hard time dealing with all this.

You also get a good look into how disabled blacks were dealt with in mental hospitals. Henrietta’s one daughter ended up in one. Rebecca and Deborah went to find out all they could about her and it made me sick to hear about the things that happened there to blacks.

Rebecca did an amazing job telling Henrietta’s story. She did get scientific but she made it easy for non-science people to understand what was going on. The ending shattered my heart into a million pieces. I cried so hard at the end.

I highly recommend this book. I also watched the HBO movie that Oprah stared in based off the book. I did miss that they cut out the part where Rebecca goes to Clover before even getting to meet up with any of the Lacks family members. But overall they did a great job with the movie. I cried, laughed, smiled and once again my heart broke at the ending. There was one particular part of the movie that made me choke up. When Deborah and her younger brother got to go to the lab and see their mother’s cells. Gah! Go read and watch!!!!

What ancient culture do you feel most curious about? Imagine you live in that time.

Man there are so many different ancient cultures I would love to experience. After thinking it over I went with the Vikings. I have been hooked on a couple different Viking shows lately. I want to read all I can on them. If you can recommend any non-fiction or closely accurate historical fiction on Vikings I would appreciate it.

ryan mccormicks blog

From the little I have researched so far it seems like women in the Viking era were pretty bad ass. Life was obviously rough between 800 AD – 1066.

Men did the hunting, fighting, trading and farming, while women’s lives centered around cooking, caring for the home and raising children. The majority of Viking burials found by archaeologists reflect these traditional gender roles: Men were generally buried with their weapons and tools, and women with household items, needlework and jewelry.

But women in Viking Age Scandinavia did enjoy an unusual degree of freedom for their day. They could own property, request a divorce and reclaim their dowries if their marriages ended. Women tended to marry between the ages of 12 and 15, and families negotiated to arrange those marriages, but the woman usually had a say in the arrangement. If a woman wanted a divorce, she had to call witnesses to her home and marriage bed, and declare in front of them that she had divorced her husband. The marriage contract usually stated how family property would be divided up in case of a divorce.

Though the man was the “ruler” of the house, the woman played an active role in managing her husband, as well as the household. Norse women had full authority in the domestic sphere, especially when their husbands were absent. If the man of the household died, his wife would adopt his role on a permanent basis, singlehandedly running the family farm or trading business. Many women in Viking Age Scandinavia were buried with rings of keys, which symbolized their roles and power as household managers.

Some women rose to a particularly high status. One of the grandest burials ever found in Scandinavia from that period belonged to the Oseberg “queen,” a woman who was buried in a sumptuously decorated ship along with many valuable grave goods in A.D. 834. Later in the ninth century, Aud the Deep-Minded, the daughter of a Norwegian chieftain in the Hebrides (islands off northern Scotland) married a Viking king based in Dublin. When her husband and son died, Aud uprooted her household and organized a ship voyage for herself and her grandchildren to Iceland, where she became one of the colony’s most important settlers.

Were there female warriors in Viking Age society? Though relatively few historical records mention the role of women in Viking warfare, the Byzantine-era historian Johannes Skylitzes did record women fighting with the Varangian Vikings in a battle against the Bulgarians in A.D. 971. In addition, the 12th-century Danish historian Saxo Grammaticus wrote that communities of “shieldmaidens” dressed like men and devoted themselves to learning swordplay and other warlike skills, and that some 300 of these shieldmaidens held the field in the Battle of Brávellir in the mid-eighth century. In his famous work Gesta Danorum, Saxo wrote of a shieldmaiden named Lagertha, who fought alongside the famous Viking Ragnar Lothbrok in a battle against the Swedes, and so impressed Ragnar with her courage that he sought and won her hand in marriage.

Most of what we know about women warriors in the Viking Age comes from literary works, including the romantic sagas Saxo called upon as some of his sources. Female warriors known as “Valkyries,” who may have been based on shieldmaidens, are certainly an important part of Old Norse literature. Given the prevalence of these legends, along with the greater rights, status and power they enjoyed, it certainly seems likely that women in Viking society did occasionally take up arms and fight, especially when someone threatened them, their families or their property.

Flibbertigibbet Friday (Jan 12, 2018)

The Flibbertigibbet Friday that I almost forgot 🤦🏻‍♀️🤣. It’s been a crazy week! Didn’t go much last weekend but hang out at home and read and blogged. Monday was the same, along with tues. Wed I had to take my son to see the pediatric eye doctor. All is good. He just had some allergy related inflammation so he’s on an allergy pill. Then Thursday my daughter had a doctors app 🤦🏻‍♀️ it was a bust 2 days!

Today! Today was an exciting day! I went to Gordon Cooper Technology Center and signed up for the Medical Terminology class and the Anatomy and Physiology class and got my application packet for the LPN program for fall 2018! Ahhh I’m so excited!

For reading updates:

I finished Katherine of Aragon! Gah it was a good book. There will be a non-spoiler review up on Wed. I can’t wait to read the rest of this series.

I’m currently reading Eliza and Her Monsters. I’m about 2-3 Chapters in and enjoying it so far. I’m buddy reading it with my Parabatai Sarah.

Well that’s it. Not much else going on or that I need to bitch about lol Have a good week and see you next Friday!

35018908Now this one is on my list but not really high up. While it sounds good and interesting, it does sound a lot like some other YA fantasy books. So it might be one I check out from the library first and see how I like it before actually buying it. It is set to be released in January 2018. Goodreads Synopsis

legendaryOMG I am so excited for this one! I absolutely LOVED Caraval. It made my list of my top 10 favorite reads of 2017! It is set to be released in May 2018. Goodreads Synopsis

It is set to release in April 2018. Goodreads Synopsis

24909347I have been dying for this book ever since I finished Gemina! I NEED IT NOW!!! I have been enjoying this series so much! It is set to be released in March 2018. Goodreads Synopsis

It is set to me released in June 2018. Goodreads Synopsis


So lets talk about reading goals for 2018. I decided not to do the Goodreads Reading Challenge for 2018. I will still use Goodreads to keep track of books I have read but I am not setting a number. I want to see if the pressure to make it to that number is what put me into a major slump the last half of 2017. I just want to read and enjoy it and between reading goal numbers and people on Instagram I got caught up in the challenge of it all. That’s not what reading is supposed to be about. The book world of Instagram in changing and not for the better. Lately I have been noticing its all about how many followers you have, how many likes and comments you get and what people think of your pictures. While of course you want people to like your pictures but it should NOT be based on that. Take a damn picture and post it if you like it and screw everyone elses opinion. Also its called BOOK WORLD not lets see how much crap I can add to this picture. I on Instagram to share BOOKS and see books for new ideas on what to read. But lately its been hard to even see the book because its covered up by so much crap. Ugh ok I will stop bitching. But seriously STOP!

I do have some books I want to get to in 2018 for sure. I want to finish up the last book in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor and read her new book, Strange the Dreamer. I also need to finish End of Watch, the last book in the Bill Hodges trilogy by Stephen King. Other than that I usually mood read. I will be doing a buddy book club read once a month with my sister, Cat (Witchpluscat on IG). Mostly Historical, Historical Fiction and True Crime. It will be for our Discover and Conquer Blog we do together. I will post my book reviews on this blog and the other blog. I do want to read a couple more Stephen King books. I have to go at a snail’s pace with his books. I can’t just read one right after another. His books are so intense so I have to space them out. But I would love to reread the Castle Rock books. I first read them 10+ years ago. They are some of my favorite books of his. Needful Things being my number one favorite. I am so excited the new Castle Rock series on Hulu! It’s going to be so fantastic! I already know it. It’s hopefully going to be released in 2018 sometime!

Well I think that’s all I have for this blog! Until next time my loves!

You’re Not Good Enough Book Tag

I was tagged by the amazing Crystal over at Paper Royalty Blog. Thanks!


Basically, it’s a tag where you pick 30 fictional characters and write their names down on pieces of paper. You then pluck two names at a time out to answer a questions – so there are 15 questions. The aim of the game is to pick the character that fits the criteria the best and by doing so find the character that is not “good enough” for the answer.

You only have one more spot on you spelling bee team, who ould you pick to compete your team?

  • Alina (Grisha Trilogy) or Lou (NOS4A2)

Well, hmmmm, from what I know of these two I feel like Alina might be a bit more smart than Lou. I love you Lou, but you are more street smart than book smart.

Both characters want to kill you, which one would you kill first so you have a better chance of suviving?

  • Annie Wilkes (Misery) or Jasper Dent (Jesper Dent Trilogy)

Well even thought Annie is way more psycho and more likely to kill than Jesper, I have to kill Jesper Dent. Sorry my love. But you were raised by a serial killer so you know how to kill and kill well. Annie would be easier to manipulate and take down.

You’re on the Bachelor/bachelorette and you’re down to these two characters, which one are you going to give your rose to?

  • Billy Dent (Jesper Dent Trilogy) or Kaz (Six of Crows)

Oh gosh. Well first let me start by saying I would NEVER be on this show. It is the most stupid show ever. But……Man I would be afraid of NOT giving a rose to both of these people. They both might kill me. But I would give my rose to Kaz. Sorry Billy but you are a serial killer and a bit more scarier than Kaz. Please don’t kill me.

You’ve been chosen for the Hunger Games, who would most likely volunteer in your place?

  • Darkling (Grisha Trilogy) or Neville Longbottom (Harry Potter)

Well this one is a no brainer. Neville would volunteer without a second guess. The Darkling is always out for himself. So sorry Darkling. As sexy and mysterious as you are I know you would never save me.

You’re stranded on an island. Which character would you sacrifice to engage in cannibalism?

  • Queen Levana (The Lunar Chronicles) or Iko (The Lunar Chronicles)

Well since Iko is a robot I can’t eat her. Not that I would anyway. She is my favorite character in that series. So sorry Queen. You must die to save my life!

You’re the next DC/Marvel superhero (with your own TV show of course), who is your sidekick?

  • Abra Stone (Doctor Sleep) or Abby (My Best Friend’s Exorcism)

Really??? I have to pick just one?? Ugh…well Abra already have superpowers so she would probably be the obvious one but I do adore Abby and all she does to help her best friend when no one else believed her. So sorry Abra, I’m going with Abby.

You’re a manager of an avocado admiring company, (what the hell is this company??) who would you fire for lack of communication skills?

  • August Flynn (This Savage Song) or Charles Manx (NOS4R2)

HAHAHAHA OMG this one is too easy! Charles Manx, YOU’RE FIRED!!!! My heart belongs to August and he will listen to every word I say!

You just finished a book in which your favorite character dies, which character is most likely to comfort you?

  • Mackenzie (The Archived) or Harry Potter (Harry Potter duh!)

OOOOOOOO well I know both would do an amazing job I am picking Harry Potter on this one. Sorry Mackenzie!

Ugh, its high school. Who would most likely be part of the popular clique?

  • Vic McQueen (NOS4A2) or Howie Gersten (Jesper Dent Trilogy)

OOOOO neither are really all that popular but I feel like Howie would be more likely in a clique than Vic would. Vic is too much in her own little world of catching Charles than wanting to be popular.

The day has arrived; you’re finally a year older! Who would have the nerve to forget your birthday?

  • Kell (Shades of Magic Trilogy) or Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter)

Luna is my fictional BFF. She would NEVER forget my birthday! I don’t think Kell would either, on purpose anyway, be is tends to be so busy that I could see it slipping his mind.

You’ve just found an upcoming Booktube star. Who would it most likely be?

  • Sirius Black (Harry Potter) or Jesper (Six of Crows)

OMG I can’t stop laughing! While neither of them I think would be Booktube stars, I’m going with Jesper from Six of Crows. I could see him talk about books more than Sirius would. Sorry Sirius.

Sleepover time! unfortunately you can only invite one person, who would you invite?

  • Grover (Percy Jackson series) or Molly (Upside of Unrequited)

Awwww I think they would both be so much fun. But I connect with Molly on so many levels that I would want to have a sleep over with her. Sorry Grover. Maybe next time.

BAM! You’re pregnant. Who’s the father/mother?

  • Rhysand (ACOTAR Trilogy) or Magnus (The Mortal Instruments series)

Well! As much as I adore BOTH these guys, Magnus was my first fictional boyfriend so he gets dibs at being daddy. Sorry Rhysand.

You’ve just written a super important text. Who would “see” it, but not reply?

  • Scarlett (Caraval) or Delilah Bard (Shades of Magic trilogy)

For sure Scarlett would respond. It’s in her nature. Delilah is a great character and friend but she’s so busy I could see her reading and then getting distracted by something pirate related and never respond.

You’ve just woken up and it’s time for breakfast. Your mom has been replaced by who?

  • Feyre (ACOTAR series) or Manon Blackbeak (Throne of Glass series)
