Hi, my name is Sorelle and I'm studying to get my BA in English. I have always wanted to write because it makes me feel more confident in continuing my education as a future writer.

A Short Holiday Story: A Wish Before Christmas
Remember when you had to wish for something so Santa could come and give you that wish? Yeah, I remember it very well. I'm not the "believe in Santa" type. My little child years been over with. I never knew that sometimes what you want takes patience and time. I wasn't the patience type either. But this particular Christmas was something I needed. Something that I had been waiting for a long time...
Something From the Roots Pt.2
You know how when you get this sick feeling that you shouldn't go somewhere you shouldn't be going but you go anyway? Well, I didn't listen to this "feeling of regret". If I would have just listened, I wouldn't have been caught up. But that day going to the woods to see the Pinkerton's cabin, something was out there, creeping, stalking, and looking. I don't know who or what it was. I just knew I had to find something to make good sense out of.
The Origins of Underrated Comics: "Darkchylde"
Since it was October and the spooky season is over, why not do a creepy monstrous comic origin to end it? Well with this comic origin it's far from your usual monsters like vampires, zombies, and werewolves etc. No, this beautiful but deadly creature is far from what anyone would expect in a monster of death. I hope you all will enjoy reading this and be interested in the comic yourself. Here is the origin of "DARKCHYLDE"...
Something From the Roots Pt. 1
"It's a hollow place", the people of Shadowbrook called it. A place with such beautiful trees with root vines that spreads everywhere around the forest. Legends say the roots of the trees holds the secrets of the town. But I describe it as an urban legend that makes people gossip because it's a juicy tale. A tale that is a conspiracy theory everywhere else but in Shadowbrook, the citizens talk about it as if it was alive and well. They say the roots are from a bloodline that is unbreakable. A bloodline that keeps the roots of the trees alive. I was young when the story was developed. When I was a child, it didn't quite have an effect on me. Maybe because I didn't listen to the stories. Or maybe I just didn't buy into it like every other child that lived in that town. But, going back as a 20 something in college I was wrong. So wrong...
October Book Review 1: "The Weight of Blood" by Tiffany D. Jackson
Why not start the spooky season off with a horror book review? Well, you got it, and you don't want to miss this review. I simply knew what I was going to rate this book and it was an easy 5 stars. I just enjoy a good horror atmosphere and sometimes retellings/adaptations too. And yes, I know that most times retellings/adaptations don't always hit that original peace of beautiful work as the classic copy does but with this book you won't be disappointed. You see this retelling is a retelling of the Stephan King's classic novel "Carrie". So yes, you won't be let down with this one.
Book Review: Twisted Games #2 by Ana Huang
My overall opinion/review of this book alone is beautiful. I have never read a novel like this before because I'm not into romance. But Ana Huang is going to have me love this category a lot more. I don't know if you all have been to the book section of social media lately, but this author has been getting popular by the minute. So far I can honestly say, she is up there with "Colleen Hoover" who is known for her "It Ends With Us" best seller and the top pick for romance. For the past weeks, I kept passing by YouTube book recs and social media book recs for the LONGEST. And when I keep passing by things, that means I need to check it out. I started with book 2 of the "Twisted" series because since this series is standalone (read them in different orders) I had to try book 2 out first. And I hate to say this but part 2 is my favorite. While everyone else is fawning over part 1 book, I am drooling over part 2. Here is why...
If Life Was That Simple
We spend our lives searching for things that are not always there. Sometimes the things that we search for, are not always what we need. What I'm trying to say is, I've spent half of my teenage life searching for things that I was wasting time on. Things that I didn't need in my life at the time. Lusting for those things was draining me, not just emotionally but mentally. Looking out at the beautiful scenery that glows into my view, wondering if love or anything else will come my way and have a positive impact on my life. After many disappointments coming at me in so many forms, I've just about had it. When you've had delays and negativity always around you, you get used to it. It gets to you. It gets to the point where you can't ignore those disappointments anymore. And then when they start to pile up in your head, you become so tired that you don't even have the energy for anything.
After leaving work late, I was exhausted and was ready to go home. But since I still had little energy left, I went to a local cafe not too far from where my condo was. It was a beautiful night with the right breeze of wind. When I arrived at the cafe, it had very few people but enough to still have life in it. Coffee with sugar and cream, please I said while still looking at the menu. Minutes later, I decided to take a seat in the back. For some reason, I felt a sense of comfort. Maybe it was the late-night vibes I guess. But whatever it was, I was feeling good all of sudden.
