About

“My life doesn’t have a prologue, nor does it have an epilogue. That leaves it with the few chapters that I am currently living through.”

Hello! My name is Alaina and I am a Canadian university student with a passion for reading. To say my life is chaotic is an understatement. I am currently studying sciences in university, with hopes of going into a healthcare related career. While balancing research and volunteer commitments, I don’t have a whole lot of free time. But, reading provides me with a temporary escape from reality. No math problems, no memorization, just me, myself and the fictional world.

This blog is the outcome of my love for books! It’s nothing too special, just an outlet where I can share my love for reading with the rest of the world. Sometimes I feel like I am the only person in the world who has ever enjoyed reading, while really, there is a whole community of people who love talking and writing about their love for books. So, I decided to join that community in hopes of bringing more people into it!

Welcome to my blog and I hope that everyone has an enjoyable time discussing and ranting about books!

  1. Dear Alaina:

            I see you like sci-fi, and thought you’d might enjoy a free advanced release e-copy of the brand new sci-fi comedy 11,984.  This is not a conventional novel. It contains a lot of creative innovations, including punctuation from the future. 

            Thousands of years in the future, humanity has finally eradicated war, poverty, and all forms of human suffering. With no problems or unanswered questions remaining in the world, everyone is bored out of their minds, that is until the sun starts putting on a light show, the first warning sign it’s getting ready to supernova!

           Our heroes from the year 11,984 are your typical family of two mothers, three fathers, a couple of kids, and plenty of robots. Fun-loving Troll, so called because of her giant troll doll hair(They don’t have names in the future, or wear clothes) is the world’s leading hydrologist/interior decorator, whose plans to retire quickly change when faced with the drought to end all droughts. Bulb, bald head glowing like a lightbulb, is the cranky Minister of Rational Thought. His faith in science is tested by the total collapse of society. Last but not least is Litterbot, the clumsy garbagebot who gets no respect, and whose highest priority–to clean–is frustrated by a world without messes. 

           As the family works on building an escape spaceship, the sun bombards them in changing colors, which unbeknownst to them causes radiation insanity. The sky colors keep growing stronger, and these totally peaceful people are at each other’s throats. It gets so bad their bodies mutate (which helps them work faster) and world computer crashes (forcing them to read primitive paper books, and rely more on Litterbot.) Will they launch before getting smashed to pieces? 

          My first humor novel, Foxavier and Plinka, was published in 2013. May I email the complete 11,984 manuscript of 75,000 words? Thank you.
