The Family Fang



Author: Kevin Wilson

Genre: Realistic fic

But when an artist’s work lies in subverting normality, it can be difficult to raise well-adjusted children. Just ask Buster and Annie Fang. For as long as they can remember, they starred (unwillingly) in their parents’ madcap pieces. But now that they are grown up, the chaos of their childhood has made it difficult to cope with life outside the fishbowl of their parents’ strange world.

You heard of sci-fic fantasy? While Bad Unicorn is fantasy sci-fic. A total flip of the genre. Its about a boy who found this magical book that transport him to the future where he has to fight Princess, a princess robot unicorn. I don't exactly know where to put this book on my shelf. Fantasy or sci-fic?

Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge #2


This week's topic: Topics I could give an impromptu speech on.

There are quite a few topics I can talk deeply about.

1. Pre-historic history - Having to hear dinosaur facts from my older brother everyday of my life (not really) it has rub off on me, as while as my little brother.

2. Any time period in history - I'm a huge history buff. There are some period history I can talk more then others. The three main ones you has to sit down for are pirates and the age of sail,  the Aztecs, and the Victorian era.

3. Movies - mainly on the history and making of movies.

4. Botany -  This is what I'm studying now so I'm going to know a lot of detail about the anatomy of plants.

5. Chickens - I use to own chickens and that was the topic I pick in speech class. I can talk in great detail about the care and benefits of these birds.
