  • Be the author you want to see in the world! Take this fun quiz from Buzzfeed and see what best-selling novel you would write.




The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin is a fantastically written and thoughtful piece. It is like seeing an accident happen in slow motion and seeing all the points in which it could have been changed. The pieces were set in motion when Varya, Daniel, Klara, and Simon visit a fortune teller as children and their fates are revealed to them. Whether it was because of her shared insight into the days of their deaths that set them on their paths, or that they were destined to those lives anyways is up to the reader to decide. 
Can people change their fates? If so, is that written as well?
