The Various Pros and Cons of Hardcopies, Audiobooks and Ebooks

I'm sorry to say you can probably be expecting more erratic posting in the future, this is mostly due to the fact that high school started recently, and my time is already slipping through my fingers... *sigh* Now that we're done with the depressing stuff, let's move onto todays topic...

First up, those good ol' original paper-made books... I have to admit out of all the formats, this is my most beloved.

After all this is how I started out reading, books that I've read as a child hold memories for me in a way I believe no other format can.

I find that I read hardcopies the fastest, and they look gorgeous on my desk (so pretty to stare at). Plus there's just something special about actually holding the book in your hands, and turning every page. Also hardcopies make thee best bookstagram photo props, there's no competition.

On the flip side of things, with physical books, you can only fit so many in your bag before the carrying capsule has reached it's undeniable limit. Another downside is hardcovers are really heavy, but paperbacks are easier to damage, so neither is completely optimal for transporting around.

I'm not sure if this is really a downside or not, but I'm uber protective of my hardcopies,

if there's so much as a crease on a page's corner I feel agony. This can be pretty bad if someone asks to borrow one of my books. For example, once a friend of mine asked to borrow a book, and the next day I brought it to school in a gallon sized plastic bag. In my defense it was a signed copy, and of quite high value to me.

Next audiobooks, I tend to listen to them while I'm working on something.

I find them to be quite entertaining when I'm free to multitask. My mother first introduced them to me, we used to check audiobooks out from the library so we could listen to them on car trips. I loved this, mostly cause car trips are the worst. If I wasn't bored, than I was carsick. Audiobooks fixed those problems (well not sure it did to much for the latter).

If the voice acting is good, it can be like movie minus the visuals. (which kind of is the whole point of the movie but whatever)

However on the flip side if the voice acting is bad, then *cringe*.

Bad voice acting can even lead to me DNFing a book if it's really so bad that I can't stand it. Another issue I have with audiobooks is, occasionally I'll get distracted, and then after a few minutes realize I have no clue what just happened.

Now for the last one, honestly I started off really disliking ebooks, but I've slowly grown to appreciate them more.

I love the slimness and compactness of ereaders, they're just so portable and light. A couple hardcover books can really add some serious weight to your bag. I received a kindle from my aunt awhile back, and it was nice to have, until I broke it of course. (whhhyyy am I such a clutz...)

I've been intending to buy another, but I also need to get a new laptop and phone (hence my aptitude for breaking things, surprisingly enough the laptop has not become one of my victims, it has miraculously lived long enough to become too old and slow for my impatient soul).

Another win for ebooks is they are easier to read in the dark at 2 am when your parents may or may not think you're asleep. Cause you know there's no need for that clunky flashlight you keep dropping on you face.

Okay, I'm gonna let you in on a little secret, when I read on my phone I get distracted...

(I know, I know, I'm a terrible bookworm *shame*. What should distract me from books? Nothing. But you know sometimes the internet is a siren luring you in...)

So yeah, it can sometimes take me a little bit of time to finish an ebook. However when (if I ever) get around to getting an ereader this problem should pretty much go poof.

However the biggest issue for me is I like being able to hold the physical book in my hands and turn the pages, and with ebooks that not exactly an option.

So while ebooks offer a ton of advantages, and audiobooks also have their benefits, I'm gonna have to go with hardcopies as my favorite.

Though, depending on the circumstances, at times I will prefer one of the other two.

So you've heard my opinions, what are yours? What are your rankings for the different reading methods?

Shakespeare and Gay Rights // This Above All by Lindsey Culli ARC Review

This Above All by Lindsey Culli Piper is already going behind her father's back when she auditions for the school play. Then to make matters worse she is cast as Romeo, a role her uber-religious father will most definitely not approve of. As to him, a woman playing a man's role in a play (a romantic one no less) is an act of homosexuality, which he considers, a sin against God. Piper is forced to decide between the religious beliefs she was brought up on, and the her newly developing opinions.

Synopsis & Details:

When sixteen-year old Piper is cast as Romeo in her school’s production, she’s as surprised as everyone else. Not only because she’s a girl, but also because she’s from one of the region’s most notorious ultraconservative families. But when the school principal demands that the part be recast read more... “appropriately” or the show cannot go on, Piper faces a choice: become the figurehead to appeal the principal’s decision or accept the message the administration’s ultimatum sends to the school’s gay students, including her new friends. Namely, that they should be ashamed of who they are or whom they happen to love.

Pitched as Dirty Dancing meets Saved!, when the daughter of one of the region's most notorious ultraconservative families is cast as Romeo in her school production, drama is sure to follow.

Title: This Above All
Author: Lindsey Roth Culli
Series: N/A
Publication Date: August 29, 2016
Genres: YA, Contemporary, Romance
Source: I received an arc from the publisher for review consideration (thanks Curiosity Quills!) this in no way affected my review, cross my heart.

I requested This Above All from Netgalley because the synopsis intrigued me.

I found the story idea to be really unique, and I'd also recently taken an interest in theatre (Hamilton's to blame).

At about 10% this book really sucked me in.

I did nothing but read for a couple hours (this may have also constituted forgetting about my homework and staying up too late on a weeknight). While I didn't manage to finish This Above All that night (it got too late, and if I sleep any later than 1:00 am then I'm guaranteed horrendous suffering the next day) the first thing I did next morning, was to finish the book.

It was really interesting to see Piper's views change.

I've seen plenty of character development, but I hadn't seen one quite like this before.

I'm not completely sure whether the portrayal of Piper's very religious family is 100% accurate, being raised in a pretty unreligious atmosphere myself. It seemed a bit extreme in some cases, like the flushing people out of the woods with foghorns and flashlights. Though the anti-gay protests definitely felt realistic, and it really hurt to see her family treat people so poorly simply cause their sexuality.

The ending was a bit anticlimactic, I just felt it fell a bit flat.

(view spoiler)[Also Piper's father ends up giving a rose to her after her first performance as Romeo, and while that was an undoubtedly sweet moment, I didn't really see where it came from.] As for the love interest, I had a meh-ish attitude towards him. He wasn't too bad, except the part where he does some stupid things to supply romantic conflict.

Overall This Above All was a great, quick read.

The story deals with difficult and controversial topics without being too preachy, and has beautiful character development.

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Introducing My Genderbent!Mulan/Amazons Retelling // Beautiful People #21

Beautiful People is a link-up hosted by Sky @ Further Up and Further and Cait @ Paperfury. At the beginning of every month, they post a couple questions, which you can answer with info about the characters in your current writing project. The link-up is designed to help you learn more about your characters and share them with the world. Find more info here.


How did you come up with this character?

Currently none of the characters in my Genderbent!Mulan/Amazons project have solid names (and I also don't have a title yet, normally those two are like the first things I come up with, but this writing project's been a bit different). I think my main character's name will most likely be Keung, but that's definitely liable to change.

Keung popped into my head when I decided I wanted to do a Mulan retelling, at first he was girl, but then I decided I wanted to genderbend it and so his gender changed. Honestly I haven't been focusing to much on his character yet, I've been busy doing research on The Amazons and Ancient Chinese culture (you'd think me being of Chinese descent would mean I'm already well versed in the latter, but I'm really not in the slightest). So yeah that's how Keung came to be.


Have they ever been starving? Why? And what did they eat to break the fast?

Keung and his family are rather well off, so from what I've plotted out so far, no. However as I develop the plot further, I feel like such a scene will probably come along, and if it did, he'd break the fast with some steamed buns and rice porridge.


Do they have a talent or skill that they’re proud of?

So in the world of the Genderbent!Mulan/Amazons story, every family has special power or skill that is passed down from a mother to her children (sorry dads). So the power Keung inherited is skinshifting (which means he can change his appearance. However he can't like grow a beak, he can only manipulate the feature he already has. Also pretty much the only thing he can't change is those uh unique male parts...). Also skinshifting is like really really rare and one of the more powerful skills, so yeah he's proud of his ability.


List 3 things that would make them lose their temper.

Messing with Keung's family is pretty much the surefire way to piss him off, and he definitely has plenty more pet peeves coming in the future, I just haven't gotten around to building that part of his character.


What is their favorite type of weather? Least favorite?

Keung likes the rain, but only when it's not getting in the way of his life. Finding him watching the rain as it streams down the windows and beats down against the world is a pretty common occurrence. As for least favorite, he absolutely despises the blistering summer heat.


What is their Hogwarts house and/or MBTI personality?

I'm gonna have to go with the obvious and say Hufflepuff, after all the Ballad of Mulan is all about family. Mulan takes her father's place out of love for her father, Keung will do something similar for one of his family members.

If I had to put him in a house other than Hufflepuff, I'd say Ravenclaw, as he kinda is the smart friend. Basically when everyone else is planning on doing something stupid, he's the one nagging them all about being idiotic, and trying to prove their idiocy to them by poking holes through their plans.


Are they more likely to worry about present problems, or freak out about the unknown future?

For Keung it depends, if there's major problems in the present to worry over, he'll think and contemplate about them until he's completely worn out. However if everything is going jolly well, his mind tends to wander to futuristic issues. (Basically, he's a full-time worrier like someone I know *cough* me *cough*)


What is their favorite thing to drink?

I'm going the extra cliche route and saying, tea. Well, for now. I haven't had this writing project running around my head for that long, so I'm still figuring out the plot and characters, and I have zero clues what Keung would like the drink.


What is their favorite color? Least favorite?

Blue is his favorite, specifically the pale tones. And his least favorite is gold, too gaudy for his tastes.


What is a book that changed their life?

I really have no clue which book I'd pick. I haven't read a lot of ancient Chinese novels, and I'm not even certain which time period I'm sticking this fantasy in....

Are you working on a story, or do you plan to? If you're working on one, how far along are you?

Their All Grown-Up // Frost like Night by Sara Raasch Blog Tour + Arc Review + Giveaway

Small warning this review will contain spoilers for the first two books in this series, Snow like Ashes and Ice like Fire.

Frost Like Night was a wonderful conclusion. I was a bit worried about this one cause the second book lacked some luster (though that can most likely be attributed to middle book syndrome), but Frost like Night was amazing and unlike Ice like Fire, never reduced me to an angry, flaming, human.

Synopsis & Details:

Angra is alive, his Decay is spreading—and no one is safe. Meira will do anything to save her world. With Angra trying to break through her mental defenses, she desperately needs to learn to control her own magic—so when the leader of a mysterious Order from Paisly offers to teach her, she read more... jumps at the chance. But the true solution to stopping the Decay lies in a labyrinth deep beneath the Season Kingdoms. To defeat Angra, Meira will have to enter the labyrinth, destroy the very magic she’s learning to control—and make the biggest sacrifice of all.

Mather will do anything to save his queen. He needs to rally the Children of the Thaw, find Meira—and finally tell her how he really feels. But with a plan of attack that leaves no kingdom unscathed and a major betrayal within their ranks, winning the war—and protecting Meira—slips farther and farther out of reach.

Ceridwen will do anything to save her people. Angra had her brother killed, stole her kingdom, and made her a prisoner. But when she’s freed by an unexpected ally who reveals a shocking truth behind Summer’s slave trade, Ceridwen must take action to save her true love and her kingdom, even if it costs her what little she has left.

As Angra unleashes the Decay on the world, Meira, Mather, and Ceridwen must bring the kingdoms of Primoria together…or lose everything.

Title: Frost like Night (Snow like Ashes #3)
Author: Sara Raasch
Series: Snow like Ashes
Publication Date: September 20, 2016
Genres: YA, Fantasy, Romance
Source: I received an arc from the publisher for review consideration (thanks Balzer + Bray!) this in no way affected my review, cross my heart.

I'm pretty satisfied with how this series ended.

Though I was a bit annoyed with how looonggg it took them to realize the solution to the, (view spoiler)[Meria has to die to save the world issue. It was pretty obvious to me the second the Cordellan dagger appeared.] But I can definitely see why the plot worked out how it did.

The love triangle conflict wasn't as prominent (if not practically none existent) in the third book as it was in the second (Which was a REALLY good thing). (view spoiler)[I sorta realized that Theron was pretty much only a conventional romantic blockade™, and had like zero chance of ending up with Meira. Which was kinda annoying, since pretty much the only reason the second book bugged me so much was that curse of a love triangle. Though Mather, the dude I was rooting for, did end up with Meira, so there's not really much for me to complain about.] I also acquired a new otp, Jesse and Ceridwen rather quickly stole my heart in Ice like Fire, but in Frost like Night they ran away with it.

Despite being a near 500 paged book, Frost like Night moved relatively quickly for me.

One afternoon I just sat my butt down, decided I was gonna finish my copy, and pretty much whipped through it in a couple of hours. So if you're worried that this one's gonna be a tad slow, like Ice like Fire, then you've got nothing to fear.

I'm sure this is kinda of a weird thing to say, but toward the end of the book, I had this little "my child's all grown up epiphany."

It just suddenly hit me how much the story had evolved, and how much Meira and all the characters had grown. I'm really going miss them, though I'm super excited to see all that Sara Raasch has in store next.

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Quartz Gazette August 2016 // School has Started Once Again + Moving is on the Horizon

So high school has begun for me, and it's definitely been an interesting two weeks. It's also the reason why I've been largely absent from Quartzfeather. I'm having some trouble keeping up with my weekly schedule, so from henceforth I'll be posting bi-weekly and Quartz Gazette will be posted bi-monthly.

In other news, I'm moving houses this Friday. Yay for the new house, boo for all the packing. I'll also have the space for a bookshelf in my new room and that is always a plus.

On twitter, yesterday, I passed 100 followers, which is awesome! But I'm honestly not sure how long that will last, cause my Twitter followers count is always a bit sporadic.

Watched & Read

  • Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda // This was just purely adorable, it took me a couple of times to actually pick up the book and read it through, but in the end I'm so glad I did. I just wanna pinch Simon Spier's cheeks.
  • Wolf by Wolf // Another five star! I really enjoyed Wolf by Wolf, the alternate history topic, and the fantasy weaved into the story made for a wonderful read.
  • Cursed Child // Like the rest of the book blogging world, I didn't much like this one either. I ended up getting quite annoyed at Cursed Child cause the the original trio was quite out of character, and the plot was fairly ridiculous. Hopefully Fantastic Beasts will be better.
  • Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe // I was under the impression that this book was an old classic for a bit, oops. My interest was first piqued when I saw a piece of Voltron Legendary Defender/Aristotle and Dante crossover fanart on Tumblr. And then after learning Lin Miranda was the narrator for the audiobook I knew I had to read this one. I really loved Aristotle and Dante (Ari's mom is awesome!), but I felt that the story moved a bit slow at times, which is pretty much the only reason for the 4 starred rating. Also I'm super excited for the sequel, but I'm honestly a bit confused on what it's gonna be about, the first book's ending wrapped things up rather nicely.
  • Raven Boys // I mostly read this book cause our great overlord, Cait, kept bring up how good it is. I'm a bit uncertain on how I feel about it, I loved certain aspects of the Raven Boys, but other parts just downright confused me for awhile. Not too sure whether I'm going to continue on with the series. I will say this though, Gansey has my complete and utter devotion.
  • Where the Mountain Meets the Moon // It's certainly been awhile since I've read a middle grade book and it was really nice to read one with Chinese culture. All in all it was a sweet book, and quite charming. The art included with in, which was drawn by Grace Lin herself, was a great addition.
  • Snow Like Ashes // So I thought Snow Like Ashes was a Snow White retelling at first glance, which it most definitely wasn't. The plot started off a bit cliche, and I was only semi-interested, however toward the beginning/middlish of the book there's a certain plot twist that caught my attention and hooked me in.
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender // The finale absolutely tore out my heart, I was crying terribly. I can definitely see why Avatar is an animation legend. I've started Korra, but I'm not completely sure whether I like it yet.
  • Paper and Fire // currently reading Paper and Fire has been on my currently reading shelf forever, I don't think I want to DNF it, but at the same time I haven't really been motivated to read it recently.
  • Ice Like Fire // currently reading I adored the first book, but so far the second hasn't earned the same leval of adoration. Meira's been really annoying so far, and her actions make me wanna throw the book out the window sometimes. (view spoiler)[And honestly I find the love triangle to be unnecessary and exceedingly aggravating.] Also the ratings for this book really plummeted, considering how well the first book did, so my expectation aren't that high for Ice Like Fire.
  • A Curious Beginning // currently reading The main reason I requested A Curious Beginning was because the similarities between it and The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate. So far the book's been greet, the mc seems a bit pushy, but perhaps that particular character trait will grow on me.
  • My Lady Jane // currently reading When I was younger I was obsessed with the Tudor Era, so I know Jane's rather sad story by heart, that makes My Lady Jane even more entertaining, cause I can tell what they've changed. Also humor in this book is impeccable.

Snarky is the New Adorable // Been Here All Along by Sandy Hall Blog Tour + ARC Review + Giveaway

Oh my what can I say... this book was just so perfectly cute. On my list of favorite types of romances, right under "hate at first sight", is cute, awkwardly ones. And the latter's pretty much Been Here All Along in a nutshell. (you know it's been awhile since I've sat down to write a good ol' review, also my brain is currently very sleep deprived as I've developed a habit of accidentally staying up all night reading)

Synopsis & Details:

Gideon always has a plan. His plans include running for class president, becoming head of the yearbook committee, and having his choice of colleges. They do NOT include falling head over heels for his best friend and next door neighbor, Kyle. It’s a distraction. It’s pointless, as Kyle is already read more... dating the gorgeous and popular head cheerleader, Ruby. And Gideon doesn’t know what to do.

Kyle finally feels like he has a handle on life. He has a wonderful girlfriend, a best friend willing to debate the finer points of Lord of the Rings, and social acceptance as captain of the basketball team. Then, both Ruby and Gideon start acting really weird, just as his spot on the team is threatened, and Kyle can’t quite figure out what he did wrong…

Title: Been Here All Along
Author: Sandy Hall
Series: N/A
Genres: Romance, Contemporary, YA
Source: I received an arc from the publisher for review consideration (thanks Swoon Reads + Xpresso Reads!) this in no way affected my review, cross my heart.

Basically we have Dorian, your well put together, neat freak, list-maker, and his friend Kyle, the sweet, messy, bisexual, sporty guy (who reminds me of shaggy dog for some reason). They've been best friends since they were children, and all's good... Tilll teen rom-com cliché strikes (his words not mine) and Dorian (the supposedly straight friend) realizes he's chest deep in love with his totally platonic bestie Kyle, who also happens to be dating a uber popular cheerleader. Basically one word, inevitable doom.

While reading Been Here All Along (BHAA) I highlighted a ton of quotes.

This is one of those books that possess beautiful snarky humor. And you know me, the snarkier the better. Here lies my favorite quote:
"I have become a teen rom-com cliché. There is no hope for me."

BHAA (sorry not sorry, my sleep deprived brain is feeling too lazy to type) has this sweet earnestness to it (or should I say Kyle-earnestness *ba-dum-tshh*) As I mention above the romance in this book is very much a first lovey type. It's sweet, innocent, and adorable. Kyle and Gideon... just #goals.

Me while reading this book:

There a couple points of views, however it doesn't weigh down on the book at all.

In fact I feel like the multiple POVs improved the story. While we're on the topic, my one little complaint is, sometimes the voice of the different characters weren't really that distinct, occasionally I'd have to check whether it was Kyle's or Gideon's POV cause I couldn't really tell. Though I have to say I felt like Erza had a really clear, distinct voice.

One last thing I'd like to mention is that I feel like the character development was great,

especially with one character. (and since I hate it when people mysteriously allude to a character in their review, without telling us who they are. The developy ink human is (view spoiler)[Ruby].

I pretty much finished Been Here All Along (I'm writing this the next day, and yes my brain is feeling better) in one sitting. This book has an adorable romance, and if you're looking for a light, quick, sweet. read, you might want to give this one a go.

Rating: 5/5 Stars

Uhhhhh.... What Just Happened???? // Cursed Child Review

Okay I'm just gonna lay this down. I really reallly wanted to adore this script, play, book thingie (we're just gonna call it a script, capiche?) I was beyond excited for Cursed Child as I so adamantly displayed in this post about the new developments in the wizarding world.

Synopsis & Details:

The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later. Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. read more... The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

Title: Harry Potter & the Cursed Child
Author(s): J. K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany
Series: Harry Potter
Genres: Middle Grade, Fantasy
Source: Library

However I have to say my feelings about this script are mixed at best.

Part I drove me nuts (and not in the good way) just ask my family, I literally raged my way through Cursed Child. (You can not even fathom how many times I put down the script to yell at the characters for being 1. way out of character 2. stupid) Though I kept reading on cause it's Harry Potter, and no Potterhead can just abandon a Potter book.

Let me just say this, Scorpius, my man is the best thing to ever grace Cursed Child (well Albus wasn't too bad himself, though occasionally his rational decision making skills were a bit lacking. But seriously, the poor dude, Albus Severus Potter, pfft what kinda name is that?)

Cursed Child reads like a fanfiction (and not even a good one at that), not like a Harry Potter book.

It's honestly like the two aren't really even in the same world. Plus, Harry, Hermione, and Ron feel different, kinda as if some of their personality was chopped off.

Part II was marginally better than Part I (translation: less angry raging) I found myself enjoying the story more. Honestly beside Scorpius, Part II is the sole savior of Cursed Child. (Scorpius and Part II are the only reasons Cursed Child isn't getting 1 star) (view spoiler)[*warning, major, major, spoilers, turn back now or forever suffer* What the f**king hell (in this case foul language was really a necessity) Voldemort has a daughter... (not sure what to feel about it, kinda cheesy to be honest. I would have liked this story a lot more sans-Voldy) Also awhile back on the ol' tumblr I saw a post that claimed to be a Cursed Child spoiler that said Cedric Diggory became a Death Eater, and I about died of laughter, turns out it's kinda true... yeah no that's totally out of character.]

Cursed Child is an okay addition to the Potter Universe (if a bit unnecessary).

I wouldn't say I 100% hated it, but I don't particularly adore it. Though if you're a potterhead I definitely recommend you at least check it out.

Also even though I haven't personally seen the play, if you have a chance to see the play before reading the script, you should wait to see the play. From what I've heard the play's visuals more than make up for the poor plot. I hope I get the chance to see it someday. (Rock fact: this is the first 2 starred review I've ever posted on Quartzfeather, and honestly it's kinda sad, never imagined it'd be this book receiving that honor. And yes that was an Over the Garden Wall reference)

Rating: 2/5 Stars

So have you read Cursed Child? Or better yet seen the play? If so a penny for your thoughts?
