Is there a free and accurate IQ quiz online? All the ones I've found either want my credit card info at the end or is just 20 of those "which number comes next in the sequence" questions.

Thanks!

I haven't made an icon post since 2011. To get back into it, I was thinking about doing a 20in20 challenge or something, something where you challenge yourself with the prompts they give you, but not a LIMS or an icontest. Does anyone have any suggestions? Fandoms I'm into are Once Upon a Time, Supernatural, Harry Potter, anything nerdy.

Thanks!

I have joined the booktube community. Here's my latest video: The Big Book Tag. This channel is different from my fanvid Youtube channel. I wanted my fanvids and vlogs separate. This channel, Jay00Scarim, is also going to be my official Youtube account for when I become a famous author.

Please link, share, subscribe, if you feel so inclined.

Reviews

The Future of Us: Amazing and insightful. Anyone (especially kids, teenagers) should read this book.

The Touch Series: Deadly Little Lessons: The best in the series and a great conclusion. Although I have read everything from this author and know her style, I was able to predict most of what was going to happen, it was still fun to read.

The Well That Never Runs Dry: A very quick, simple read. This religious fiction is based on that Corinthians verse about love. This story is very compelling and thought provoking and gives you a doosy right on the third page that opens up the story. This book is a page turner. Highly recommend!

Dollanganger series: Petals on the Wind Not as good as Flowers in the Attic. I've always been curious as to what happens after a book ends. Do the characters get a happily after ever? V. C. Andrews lets us know what happens after the horror of the attic by picking up right where Flowers leaves off. Although it was a compelling read, it took me over a year to get through this book. For one, there were some times when I found Cathy's character unbearable with some of the decisions she makes. But this is a story about revenge and I was very satisfied with how it ended.

Cut For a book about teenage depression, I prefer It's Kind of a Funny Story. I found this book slow and boring, but a quick read, being just over 100 pages. Characters were flat, narration was dry. As someone who's struggled with depression as a teenager and young adult, I didn't find the main character all that relatable. I found her to be a whiny bitch, whereas the main character in It's Kind of a Funny Story was more relatable and is a book I would recommend to someone struggling depression.

Insurgent A slower read than Divergent. A lot of the book was the aftermath of the events of the first book's climax and it took awhile for it get exciting again, but I'm glad I stuck with it. It was excellent and I'm looking forward to the final book of the series. Fans of Hunger Games will definitely enjoy this series.

Dear Killer: Very thrilling, full of "can't look away" moments. I couldn't put it down. The storytelling was great. I would have given it 5 stars, however, there were several typographical errors and then a few chapters before the end, the tense changes from past to present as if maybe the book was edited in a rush. I hope they fix those for later printings of the book. Storytelling-wise, it was great and I would recommend if you enjoy psychological thrillers and murder mysteries, even this one is told through the perspective of the killer. Also, very impressive that the author wrote this novel when she was only 17 years old.

Welcome to the Dark House: Oh hello again, Laurie. I read this book in four days. That is unusual for me because I am a very slow reader. This was a teen scream thriller movie... but in novel form. A group of 18-21 year olds trapped in an amusement park, (seemingly) dying at the hands of a killer. What was aggravating was that we don't find out who the killer is in 90 minutes, which is why I would stay up until past 2AM to read this: to find out whodunit! Like most of Laurie's novels, this is an exciting thrill ride roller coaster of a story (yes, I chose those words carefully). Keep it up, Laurie!

Has anyone ever tried Diamond Candles? If not, they sell candles, natural, soy, big, strong scented, long lasting candles and inside every candle is a ring valued from $10-5,000 dollars! I got one and even though it's a cheaper ring, it's still gorgeous! For $24.95 + SH, you get the candle with a ring in it. Think about it, how much do you spend on candles? How much do you spend on jewelry? This is a deal!

Right now, however, there are no ring candles available, but they do update about every week, so check back in a couple days, view their site, watch their videos, look around, and then once they post some candles (they sell about 10,000 per week), snag one! They also have smaller candles, which cost less and have no ring if you just want a good smelling candle for a quick gift or something.

View their website and get 20% off by clicking here because they have a refer a friend program: http://my.cndl.es/x/IuimUO

I haven't watched Glee in quite awhile. I don't know who most of these people are, but I felt like I needed to watch this episode.

My gosh, what a heartbreaking and emotionally draining episode. Rest in peace, Cory. You will be missed. You were so young.
