A Watty Obsession

Reading is not a hobby. It is an addiction, an obsession that I can’t escape.

I came across Wattpad five years ago by accident. I didn’t really paid much attention to it until recently. Probably because I was unlucky enough to stumble into half-baked stories, obviously plagiarized novels or fanfictions I can’t really relate to. I thought that was all there is to it.

Few months ago, I was on a long bus ride and couldn’t think of anything better to do. I randomly opened apps and came across Wattpad. I listlessly browse through the novels and found some that are quite promising. I started reading and I was hooked. Now every spare time I have is spent reading novels and waiting for installments for the ones that are unfinished. I am amazed really. I hope these writers all find literary agents and their works are published in print. They are amazing!

Here are some works I really enjoyed/enjoying:

1. Last of the Firedrakes by Farah Oomerbhoy.

The story of a 16 year old orphan who suddenly found out she has powers and a princess from another world. She must learn to master her powers and defeat her aunt who’s bent on killing her.

It’s not a complete book yet but it is a good one.

2. Araminta by Lavender Brooke.

The story of a rebellious princess who was assigned to complete a Merit Quest to prove herself worthy to become a wife of a man she hasn’t met and a future queen to her people.

3. Ennara by Angela Myron.

The story of an 11 year old girl with magical powers that can save her world from shadow demons.

4. Initio Sea and Sky by JV Zafra. This is the novel that made me appreciate Wattpad. It is a story of Senna Heart, an angel who walked this earth and must now save it.

5. Annie Moon by Melanie Abed. A young girl who never suspected that she is special. She traveled to a world where elementals are real, a world where a few wants her, so she can save her best friend.

This is a complete novel too and is very very good. I love this one and I am definetly buying this book.

6. The Priestess and The Dragon by Nicolette Andrews. Set in ancient Japan, this is the story of Suzume, a princess sent to the mountains to become a priestess against her will and promptly woke up a slumbering dragon on her first day.

Strange Dreams

Whenever I’m medicated I get the stupidest or weirdest dreams.

This morning I dreamt that I bought a car and drove it around. Then I parked it somewhere to look for a pink museum but was told it only opens at 5PM. I went back to the car but couldn’t find it and stupidly realized that I don’t know the make, model or plate number of the car. And I couldn’t decide if I bought a red one or a black one so I decided to hike and got caught by a village of cannibals and got eaten.

I woke up confused and exhausted. My head feels like someone stuffed it with cotton and my throat still feels like someone left sand inside. The stupid dream did not help in anyway to make me feel better. If anything it left me confused and with a bigger headache.

Well, must get to work. Working half-ay today because of this darn flu.
