Affinity Tour – “Firebearer” #AirAwakens

I am glad to take part in this affinity tour. You can find detailed info here: http://elisekova.com/which-air-awakens-affinity-are-you/

Your emotions run hot and people know you have fire in your veins. You can be a warm heat to those who get close to you. But, when crossed, that warmth can easily turn into an inferno. In a scrap you prefer to fight with your fists, alight with fire, over weapons.

You think deeply about the future because you can hone your ability to see along the red lines of fate that connects everyone in the world. Perhaps you keep this gift of future-seeing to yourself. Or, perhaps you sell it in a Curiosity Shop.

You are just like: Crown Prince Aldrik and Larel Neiress

I guess I am a true Firebearer! I would present you three reasons to prove my affinity.

  • My name “SANA”

“Sana” is an Arabic name which means brilliance, shine dazzlingly, resplendent, light and radiance. See even my name has a connection with this affinity. The element of fire possesses these traits as well.

  • My personality

My personality traits are very similar to the ones possessed by firebearers. Enough said! Just don’t cross my path. (wicked smile)

Anyways, I find it strange sometimes. But, I love burning useless documents/pages and watching flames eating up the paper.

  • Crown Prince Aldrik

Is it too obvious that I have crush on Prince Aldrik? Hushhhh! Keep it a secret, please! I would not like to have my bad impression on Prince Aldrik. Being a firebearer would give me an opportunity to learn from Prince Aldrik and to be his friend. (let’s hope for the best) *wink*

Zuko was my favorite from ATLA and Prince Aldrik seems similar to him in so many ways.

Review: Every Day – David Levithan

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s this: We all want everything to be okay. We don’t even wish so much for fantastic or marvelous or outstanding. We will happily settle for okay, because most of the time, okay is enough.”

— Every day by David Levithan

Synopsis 

Every day I am someone else. I am myself – I know I am myself – but I am also someone else. It has always been like this.
Each morning, A wakes up in a different body. There’s never any warning about who it will be, but A is used to that. Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere. And that’s fine – until A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply.

Review

Every day by David Levithan tells the story of “A”. “A” is a spirit and it has no knowledge of its origin or history.  Each day “A” wakes up in a different body, every day is a different person who is of the same age group as “A”. For “A” gender is not a problem because “A” believes in individualism. “A” tries to spend the day without inferring into the life of its host.
But one girl changed everything.One day “A” wakes up in a body of a boy named Justin. Everything goes fine until he meets Justin’s girlfriend Rhiannon. Since, then “A” got spell-bound by Rhiannon. “A” breaks all the rules he has lived for. Day by day “A” falls more for Rhiannon. Eventually, “A” started stalking her and there comes a time when “A” cannot bear anymore and tells her the truth about himself.
I was highly anticipated to read this book. I’ve heard so much praise for it. But, it doesn’t lived up to my expectation. I was a bit disappointed while reading it. The plot was missing something. Even, Levithan himself said that this book came out of nowhere.

I liked it, but not loved it. It is a good book which highlights the importance of individualism. It emphasizes that gender/race or color is not important. What lies within one’s heart and soul should be cherished. I must say this book made me realize that we humans are nothing without memories. They shape our beliefs, character and every aspect of our lives.

Overall

Every Day is inspiring in its own way. It holds some worthy life lessons and heart warming quotations.

MY RATING: 3.5/5

I do want to read its companion novel  “Another Day”.  Just to get more insight on this book.
