    I’m at a grant total of 475 on my Goodreads “want to read” list now.

    Hi, I’m Lavender Bleu, and I’m working on my first novel. I write primarily in the superhero and fantasy genres, and read primarily in them too although I’ll give almost anything a try. I’m a Marvel fan (DC Comics is also good, but I prefer Marvel overall) and am a huge nerd when it comes to things like mythology, languages, and biology.

    Hi there! I’m Bethany, and I am also a mythology and language fan, though I’m really only familiar with Greek/Roman mythology (since they’re pretty much the same thing). I’m actually rereading the Aeneid right now. Have you read any of the classic epic poems?

    I think biology is okay. I preferred chemistry, though I’ve had to study more biology/zoology/anatomy.

    Rick Riordan inspires me to write a story that has just as much thought, and reach, and relatability while staying true to God and my personal convictions. Because let’s face it, it would be awesome to have a Christian-friendly version of Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Harry Potter. (Although I’m not a fan of Rowling’s work since I feel like it just falls flat.)

    Have you read the Ashtown Burials series by N.D. Wilson? It’s modern fantasy like Percy Jackson but it has Christian themes. It’s kind of like a Christian Percy Jackson, but it’s WAY cooler than that description would make you believe. I’m reading the third book right now and it’s shaping up to be one of my favorite series of all time. Just a warning though, the series is currently unfinished. The author is currently serializing the last book, but it may be awhile until the final book is published.

    Also, I see you like superhero stories. Have you read Blank Mastermind? It’s a story about a villain who gets amnesia and so forgets that he’s supposed to be the villain. It’s goofy and fun. The author serialized an early draft of it, as well as a sequel, on her blog and later self-published the first book.

    It’s like a race against time.

    Not yet. As far as classics go, I’m planning to read something by Plato soon.

    I think biology is okay. I preferred chemistry, though I’ve had to study more biology/zoology/anatomy.

    I never did well in chemistry. I didn’t do that well in biology, either, but it’s something I do like to read for fun and research purposes.

    I have not, but I definitely will be now.

    I am always looking for books like this. Thank you so much.

    Great success often depends on being able to distinguish between the impossible and the improbable.

    Truly.

    On the bright side, I’m finally making progress on Well of Ascension, if not my other “current reads.” ;P

    That’s good! Is it interesting so far?

    Yeah! I’m enjoying the characters and the continued worldbuilding. (Elend and Vin get more screen time together in this book and it makes me happy. Also, this new guy is interesting, even if I’m not sure what to make of him yet.)
