Forget Me Always (Lovely Vicious #2) by Sara Wolf

Publication Date: November 1, 2016
Publisher: Entangled Teen


It’s been three years, twenty-five weeks, and five days since Isis Blake fell in love, and if she has it her way, it’ll stretch into infinity. Since then, she’s punched Jack Hunter—
her nemesis-turned-maybe-something-more—in the face, survived a brutal attack by her mom’s abusive ex thanks to Jack’s heroics, and then promptly forgotten all about him.

The one bright spot for Isis is Sophia, the ephemeral girl who shares Isis’s hospital stay as well as a murky past with Jack. But as Isis’s memories return, she finds it harder and
harder to resist what she felt for Jack, and Jack finds it impossible to stay away from the only girl who’s ever melted the ice around his heart.

As the dark secrets surrounding Sophia emerge, Isis realizes Jack isn’t who she thought he was. He’s dangerous. But when Isis starts receiving terrifying emails from an
anonymous source, that danger might be the only thing protecting her from something far more threatening.

Her past.

 Book Title: Love Me Never (Lovely Vicious, #1)
Author: Sara Wolf
Release Date: Apr. 5, 2016
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance / Dark Comedy


Previously published as Lovely Vicious, this fully revised and updated edition is full of romance, intrigue, and laugh-out-loud moments.

Don’t love your enemy. Declare war on him.

Seventeen-year-old Isis Blake hasn’t fallen in love in three years, nine weeks, and five days, and after what happened last time, she intends to keep it that way. Since then she’s lost eighty-five pounds, gotten four streaks of purple in her hair, and moved to Buttcrack-of-Nowhere, Ohio, to help her mom escape a bad relationship.

All the girls in her new school want one thing—Jack Hunter, the Ice Prince of East Summit High. Hot as an Armani ad, smart enough to get into Yale, and colder than the Arctic, Jack Hunter’s never gone out with anyone. Sure, people have seen him downtown with beautiful women, but he’s never given high school girls the time of day. Until Isis punches him in the face.

Jack’s met his match. Suddenly everything is a game.

The goal: Make the other beg for mercy.
The game board: East Summit High.
The reward: Something neither of them expected.




 

  
10 Tips for Becoming a Better Writer


1.     HYDRATE!

I know this can seem like a silly, small thing, but water is so, so important for the brain to get moving! Great words come from hydrated places, as my swim teacher used to say. Usually right before she threw me into the deep end with no floaty.


2.     Read books you love.

This also is a total given, but anyone who reads a lot and enjoys a lot of books will find themselves absorbing great literature better than those who keep on even though they are super bored. My mantra; if you don’t like a book, don’t read it! Just because all your friend are reading it doesn’t mean you have to. Read what you love, and you’ll write stuff you love. Simple as that.



3.     Practice your stream of consciousness.

This can be super handy for when you run into writer’s block and just can’t seem to get the words flowing; if you’ve practiced writing from the hip, so to speak, you’ll find it easier to fling out those words until you find something you like, and something that sticks!



4.     (On that note;) Think of writing like a diary entry!

A great tip I got when I was just starting this whole writing thing out was to think of writing like a diary entry – short, sweet, and bursting with your juiciest/angstiest inner thoughts. Nothing is more awful than flat, boring writing because you’re trying to be ‘good’. Just go with what you feel, and what you’ve experienced lately!



5.     Keep a daily word count goal (and meet it everyday!)

This doesn’t mean set yourself up for 4k words a day, because that would probably mean failure somewhere down the road, and no one likes beating themselves up over imaginary goals. Start very, very small, like 50 words or so, and work your daily wordcount up from there.



6.     Watch movies!

Reading and movies sort of go hand-in-hand: if you watch a lot of cool movies, or are just a visual thinker like me, chances are you can visualize scenes in your book very vividly as you write them. This is an awesome trait – don’t forget to hone it!



7.     Read what other people your age are writing.

Sometimes it feels like you’ll never be good enough in writing, but a lot of times that’s just your perspective. Try reading somebody else who’s your age, even if it’s fanfiction or essays your friend got good grades on. I guarantee you you’ll find one person who’s writing makes you go ‘wow, I write so much better’. Lololol



8.     Make sure you think of a good title.

A good title can be the perfect gift-wrapping on your book, but more than that, it can help steer you towards keeping your focus on what the book’s really about. A good title will keep you centered in the story, and that’s invaluable.



9.     Don’t delete anything the first time you write it.

Definitely let those words flow. Don’t worry about grammar or spelling, you can come back to those later. What’s most important is getting the words on the page where you can see them. You can always edit, but sometimes you can’t always write!



10.  Get a good night’s sleep.

I know everybody and their mom tells you this, but a good night’s sleep is EXTRA essential to writing well. Your brain just doesn’t function happily on bad sleep, so get your zzz’s in and watch your writing get better in no time.
