I have decided to make my journal 'friends only' from now on, because I want to start posting my random thoughts, rants, reviews, writer's block, quizzes and other fun things, and be able to treat this as.. well.. what it is, a journal =D I have created a community for my icons and graphics right here: [info]midnight_fusion, so make sure you join + watch if you like my stuff. All my older graphic posts in this LJ will remain public  (:

Comment to be added.

Okay so I'm not much of a reader... But I do like reading and if it's an interesting book I can read it at lighting speed. So let's see.... I picked three of my favorite books and explained why I liked them so much, and I've included no spoilers, (just a small synopsis for one of them) because I hate when people spoil things for me xD

Three best books (in no particular order):
  • Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling - I have read all seven books and I enjoyed them immensely. All the characters are so well developed, and boy there are a lot of characters, and none of them are flat or boring. It's amazing how J.K created the magical world of Hogwarts and wizards and witches.. there is so much imagination, full of mysteries and each book has a unique plot.. I don't think I could pick a favorite book... I enjoyed them all equally. The last book- The Deathly Hollows - was a great way to end the series, and it had amazing twists. You can definitely tell how much the series have evolved and matured, and it made me laugh, cry, bite my fingernails, smile and understand so many things.... *sighs* <333
3 more books, continue reading.....Collapse )

Yay an update! I've been making these over the past month since I don't have a lot of free time now that I started school, so I'm happy I'm finally done xD Some New Moon stuff, I'm not a big fan of the series, but I can't wait for the movie, seems like it's gonna be awesome according to the trailer lol. So yeah I've been watching The Nanny every day on Nick@Nite since the reruns started, can't believe I never heard of that show before, it's hilarious. =D I love each and every one of the characters: Fran, Mr. Sheffield, Maggie, Brighton, Gracie, Niles, C.C, Sylvia, Yetta, Val.. I <3 Fran's nasal voice, it's annoying yet appealing at the same time, and Niles and C.C are a riot! xD Lena's new photoshoot in L.A is gorgeous, I just had to make something with it... but I miss Yulia though, her absence gives me an empty feeling when I look at the band pics =( For some reason I really love Paramore's new video, even though it's just Hayley holding a light bulb the whole time lol, but I just love her facial expressions<3 Lastly it was about time I made some graphics of my favorite singer Mrs. Mariah Carey =D I love the new photoshoot for Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. I definitely noticed how she's taking it old school trying to replicate her older shoots: the one in the back cover of her first album Mariah Carey, and the Butterfly shoot. I've been slightly disappointed with her newer albums, they just seems to have a heavy hip-hop influence, and personally I prefer her older albums, both vocally and lyric wise, in other words..90's Mariah<3
