As someone who writes and reads on Wattpad, I was beyond excited to hear about this book being released with contributions from some of their most well respected and very much loved authors spanning so many genres. The sheer size & scale of this book is incredible, with such a vast selection of 'Imagines' for you to get your teeth into. There is literally something for everyone under the cover, and I think this is a wonderful selling point for it. On the flip side, not all the stories will appeal, but that's the beauty of something like this, as is the case with Wattpad...it dares you to consider reading something that you may not have entertained at first glance. It's also giving a wonderful opportunity for unpublished authors to get a sample of their writing into the mainstream, and you can't put a value on that. The stories I've read so far in the book have been clever, creative and extremely well written; but for me, the standout piece is An Occasional Friday by Scarlett Drake. I'm a massive fan of her writing on Wattpad already, as her stories are strong and play to the emotional romantic within, while weaving complex relationships into fantastic plots. This piece was another perfect example of her creativity and talent, in bite-size form and with a cheeky little twist at the end. Given the volume of writers that she was participating with, and the mass popularity of some, I think she's most definitely someone to watch in the future.
The anticipation for the release of Imagines was high within the Wattpad & Twitter community, and it most certainly hasn't disappointed now that it's available.
Bravo to all the writers involved, they deserve to enjoy the spotlight shining on them so much.
I bought this book for one story & that is Scarlett Drake's 'An Occasional Friday'. I am not a huge fan fiction reader but I follow Scarlett on wattpad and am hooked on her stories, as are the many thousands of her followers. She is an incredibly talented writer and I am thrilled that I finally have a book with her name on my shelf, (publishers take note - she is going to be snapped up very soon). Her story did not disappoint, beautifully written with a clever twist and as with all her writing, it was all over too quickly. The other stories are all well written and a wide range of celebrities are represented as the main characters. There really is something for everyone. It's a fun read, doesn't take itself too seriously and is a chance to escape into the life of your favourite celebrity - if a only for a few minutes.
I bought this book to read one very masterful story, which is An Occasional Friday by the very talented Scarlette Drake, featuring Jamie Dornan, which I am also a fan of. I am only discovering fan fiction now, but I find Scarlette Drake stories on Wattpad and now in this published book simply addictive, fascinating and inspiring and beautifully written. An Occasional Friday is so cleverly written and the twist at the end confirms how good she is with her stories. She has an exceptional way with words and I can only hope that more of her work will be published soon because her talent really deserve that and so do we readers and supporters of her stories. The book is fun, there is a story for every one of different ages and taste. I look forward to read more and get excited about more stories.
Amazing imaginative book itself is high quality easy to read the stories inside are so good especially the one by Scarlette drake who is an amazing upcoming writer I definitely recommend this as it appeals to all genres
If you've ever been a fan or had a celebrity crush, there'll be a story in here for you! Starting from the same concept - a second person encounter between 'you' and a celeb (ranging from Kim Kardashian to Benedict Cumberbach) - these authors from the social writing site Wattpad, including bestselling Anna Todd spin a surpisingly varied set of stories.
Don't be misled by the social media origin. Some of the writing is wonderfully accomplished - Debra Goelz's sassy, imaginative, aspirational REDIRECTION (Zayn Malik) is a standout. And while many stories are romantic, even steamy, some of the best tales celebrate friendship or embrace empowerment, like Rebecca Sky's delightful STICK IT TO EVE, in which a nervous stand-up gets a confidence boost from Rebel Wilson. Obviously this isn't a book for everyone, but fans of celeb culture of all ages will feast on this!
I'm lovin' this book! From Zayn Malik to the Hemsworth brothers, you'll find something in it for you. And my very favorite part—every author wrote in 2nd person point-of-view (like those Choose Your Own Adventure books), so each story features me, the reader! This is one collection of stories I'll enjoy for a long time to come.
