About Killer Potential


Seventeen-year-old Yvette Gibbs was just admitted to the hospital psych unit in handcuffs as the main suspect in a murder case, which she refuses to talk about.  

Drugs and depression claim her family—leaving Yvette to fight her own demons alone. Adopting the skill of master of passive-aggressive vengeance lands Yvette in the psych unit with no family support, unless she cooperates with her therapist to clear her name, also a convicted murderer.

Yvette wants revenge on the world that taught her to be afraid, claimed her mother to depression, hid her father in a fog of job hopping, turned her brother to dealing drugs, and swallowed her sister whole, but to achieve this she must lie, manipulate, and most of all survive. Pitting her dead sister’s shady friend whom she fears against the man who reminded her she’s not immune to victimization, is her perfect solution to all life's hassles, even if that means she ends up with blood on her hands. Until everything backfires.


About Aften Brook Szymanski



Aften Brook Szymanski, at the age of five, once fell on her bum looking out a large picture window while eating a pickle and people laughed. She thought she was funny, life has never been the same. She’s obsessed with LEGOs, cozy reading nooks, and over-the-knee socks. A graduate of the College of Southern Idaho with an Associate of Arts degree, Brigham Young University with a Bachelor of Science degree, and the University of Utah with a Master of Education degree. Learning is more fun than testing, sometimes we have to endure both.

She lives in a very cold Wyoming valley with her husband, three kids, and one unhappy cat, where they are being cryogenically preserved for all time—thanks to how cold it is.

So this weeks prompt is to share your favourite book to movie adaptations. I love going to see book to film adaptations although sometimes I can be very apprehensive about the changes made from book to screen. However, there are some which I feel were done really well, which are the following


1. The Book Thief

A man being hugged by a girl, behind them a pile of books is on fire.

I absolutely love the book and the film "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak. It is about a girl called Liesel, put into foster care in Germany during World War II.The book itself I read before watching the film and absolutely loved it. It was extremely well written and I had really high expectations for the film version. I cannot say I was disappointed with the film. I am not much of a film reviewer but as a huge fan of the novel I can say that it was brilliant (although some of the reviews from others would say otherwise)

2. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts I and II

Splitting this book into two films was a great choice as it meant that smaller scenes which would have been missed out in a larger film weren't sacrificed. The cast was amazing for the whole series and the last two films were brilliant!


3. Little Women


Finally is a childhood favourite of mine- Little Women. This was probably the only reason I learnt how to use the video player and watched it all the time as a kid. When I finally read the book I loved it and the screen captured cartoon version was a great representation of what I read.

Knitting

Currently Knitting | 10 Stitch Blanket by Frankie Brown

July 21, 2016


Hiya!

So I recently just started knitting again. If you didn't know, I have been knitting for maybe 5 years now, but nothing I have knitting have been very good. I have only made very small, little projects and I only ever have knitted on straight needles (up until recently). I haven't really been knitting much recently, but last week I started working on a new project!

My Dream Concert Line-Up

July 06, 2016

Hello Guys!

I was requested to do a post on my dream concert line-up by TickPick, a company where you can buy tickets for concerts, basketball games and more, and I decided that I would share with you guys my top 3 acts if I was to have my own concert!

My concert right now would have strong themes of feminism and female power. I have really been into a lot of female artists and couldn't think of any male artists (who weren't rappers/grime artists) :D
