Synopsis

The small wooden box is dirty, the size of a human fist, and sealed with wax. When Corbin takes it upon herself to clean it and break the seal, a voice she has tried to ignore gathers strength. Shadows play on the walls at night, and with a family history of mental illness, Corbin fears the worst. But the voice tells her it is real. That its name is Six and it will prove it in time.  Continue reading

Hang

Naive
Innocent
Pure

Tortured
Beaten
Inured

Every day
New bruises
To endure

Bullied in school
Abused at home
In this plight, she was immured

With no one to confide in
no one to hide behind
she was her own saviour

Only one thing to do now
Commmit the ultimate sin
That was her only cure.

She found a rope
She found a stool
She found some liqueur

She gathered enough courage
To finally put her head through the rope
And end it all

Nobody missed her
Not even her own father
He was too drowned in alcohol

So she hung there for days
Until finally the rope gave out
And let her limp body fall

Reading Bingo

A while back I was looking for a reading challenge and instead, I accidentally stumbled upon a Reading Bingo Challenge hosted by Retreat by Random House. It’s a fun twist on the conventional reading challenge but, unfortunately, their bingo cards were all for previous years. Since I didn’t know if they were going to make one for 2017, I made my own!

I have never done a challenge like this before so it should be interesting.
If you want to take part in this challenge as well, just leave a comment with a link to your post!

How it works:

• Fulfill the task within the box to be able to mark it off.
• There are three levels of participation:

1. Beginner: Try and complete one line of BINGO
2. Intermediate: Complete the entire outer box
3. Expert: Fill in the whole card!

• There are a total of 24 squares with different tasks. Try to fill as many as you can.
• Remember, this is not a competition. The aim is to challenge yourself to read more and read widely. Best of luck!
