I’m afraid I’m not being my usual bookworm self this summer, being broke and uninterested in the newly released books. I just finished Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver, and I’m craving for more stories to read. Stories that are unique and unpredictable. Stories that can wrap around my heart, tear it to pieces, and stomp all over it in combat boots. Finally, I have found my answer: Wattpad.
Wattpad is a totally new form of collaborative entertainment that connects readers and writers across all genres of creative storytelling. Writers can freely come here to express themselves through their stories. Readers, such as myself, can come here to feed their urge for *new* stories to enjoy.
Here are some of my favorite stories and their descriptions (Be aware though, some stories are not yet finished. Authors upload by chapters.):
A student-teacher relationship story.
What would you do if you lost everything that ever mattered to you? When Phoebe Miller loses her family in a car crash, her answer is to simply close in on herself. She is too scared to get close to someone new, due to the fear of losing someone else important to her. Plagued by depression, harrowing nightmares and full of guilt, she pushes away the very people who may be able to help her through. Only one handsome and charming teacher is able to break down her wall of defences. But can their love survive, or is their forbidden relationship simply not meant to be?
Mollie Black recently was hired as a summer nanny for the famous designer Lacey Kingham. She’s thrilled about the job, until she realizes that she has to share the guest house with Lacey’s brother, Callen Grey, the hottest guy and biggest player on her college campus, who Mollie finds incredibly annoying and way too cocky for his own good. Once she starts getting to know the real Callen, can she stop herself from falling in love? Callen is annoyed because Mollie seems to be the only girl on the planet resistant to his charms, so he makes it his personal goal to get her to fall for him so he could break her heart at the end of the summer, but can he resist falling in love with her first and changing his player ways forever?
