book cover


Review- December 2010

Hello, everyone.

I finally finished the book Sugar Sugar by author Carole Wilkinson. Sugar Sugar is a bout a girl name Jackie who leaves here hometown Australia, with a dream of becoming a World-Famous fashion designer.She knows where she is going and how she is going to get there but, after a weekend in Paris everything is gone of track. She lost her fashion folio, ends up in a place that isn't even on a map, and lots more. Soon, she finds herself going in a new direction, that she likes and takes her chances in the new direction and hopes it works out. Honestly, when i first started reading it i didn't like that much, but after about 70 pages i started to get into the story and then i loved it. I would rate it a 3 1/2, so i hope you guys at least try to read and enjoy it! You will start to get into it after you start reading so take a chance! Visit the website http://carolewilkinson.com.au/, to learn more about the artist, book, and more stuff.

Interview with Author April Lindner!

Picture

Interview- December 2010


1.As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

I always wanted to be a writer, though for a while I also wanted to be an artist, an actress, and a tightrope walker—despite the fact that I’m terrified of heights.



2.How long have you been writing?

Ever since I knew how to hold a pencil.  I wrote a novel and a whole lot of poems in elementary school.  My third grade teacher let us write as much as we wanted and draw our own illustrations, and then she bound the whole thing up in a book, which made me feel really famous and important.



3.What is your book "Jane" About?

Jane is a modernization of Jane Eyre.  My Jane is a 19 year old college student forced to drop out of school when her parents die in a car accident.  In desperate need of work and a place to live, she applies to a nanny agency.  Because she’s quiet and serious and not very interested in celebrities or rock music she is chosen to take care of the daughter of Nico Rathburn, a legendary rock star on the brink of a comeback.  Against her will, Jane finds herself attracted to Nico and drawn into the mysterious doings at his estate.



4.What is your favorite horror book?

My favorite is probably Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.  I love the idea of a scientist piecing together a living being out of body parts, and the creature being terrifying and misunderstood.  It’s deliciously creepy but also kind of heartbreaking.



5.What are your upcoming projects?

I’ve been working on a retelling of Wuthering Heights.  It’s set in a night club on the lower east side of Manhattan, and the Heathcliff character is a punk rocker.



6.If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in any of your books?

Probably.  I try not to let myself think about that, though.  The books are already out there, and I have to let them go and be whatever they are. 



7. Thank you!! What else would you like to say or have me post?

You’re very welcome; this was fun.  I hope readers who haven’t yet experienced Jane Eyre will give it a try and fall in love with Jane and Mr. Rochester the way I did.
