The Candy Book Tag

Hey, guys!

Phoenixdarkscales from God is Awesome and at Work nominated me for the Candy Book Tag! I’ve seen it around and always thought it looked like fun, but now I get the chance to do it!

Anyways. Getting started.

Sounds cool, right?

Right.

Dogsong by Gary Paulson. I’ve heard a ton of great things about it, and then I picked it up and was completely lost.

Um… well… I have, uh, several.

  • The Raven by Mike Nappa. EVERYONE PICK UP THIS BOOK AND READ IT!
  • The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom by Christopher Healy. *squeals*
  • Lies Young Women Believe by Nancy DeMoss, Erin Davis, and Danna Gresh
  • Do Hard Things by Alex and Brett Harris

Ew. I hate those things. Black jelly beans. *shudders*

My black jelly bean books are:

  • Annabel Lee by Mike Nappa
  • All the Shakespeares (I’m so sorry Shakespeare fans)
  • Books with no purpose

Um… I don’t really read romance?? So… er… maybe the little side romance of The Raven? I loved watching The Raven, Marv L. Deasy, whichever of his names you go by, crush on Trudi was so cute.

Ermm, I really don’t read horror that much… so the scariest horror I’ve read was Monster by Frank Peretti which is labeled “gentle horror”. It gave me just enough chills that I’ve been putting off reading This Present Darkness for the past two years. Hehe. *glances warily over shoulder*

King’s Folly and King’s Blood. The fact that they are 500+ pages might help with how long it takes me, but it’s also this roller coaster for each of them. “Ugggghhhh, this book is so boring…! NO WAY THAT DID NOT JUST HAPPEN WHATHAPPENSNEXT?? Errrrrgh, do I have to finish it?? Only two hundred pages left. Fiiine. WHAT??? NO!! YOU CAN”T END THERE!!! WHAT HAPPENS NEXT??? I NEED THE NEXT BOOKKKK!!

The first series of 39 Clues. The one where they’re actually looking for the clues. 😉 And Narnia. And Robin Hood. And Winne the Horse Gentler. And Keystone Stables. And Black Beauty. And… you know… all the rest of those amazing books.

 

My Nominations!

Making Time for Writing

Making time for writing… that might very well be the hardest part of being a writer. For me, it’s hard to make time simply because so much other stuff is going on around me. Just like the photo, lol. More than that, I also have other things, non-writing things, that take up a lot of my time. With all that going on in my life (and I’m sure your life too… unless I’m the only busy person in the world…), how is anyone supposed to get “non-urgent” things like writing done?

Reblog: My Offical Title is Book Dragon

Once upon a time, people who liked to read a lot were called “book worms,” and the notion formed around this phrase that habitual readers were extremely shy and introverted, of course wore very thick glasses, never were seen anywhere without a book in hand, and were naturally clumsy and socially awkward and should be […]

Summer Time Is Here!

My school is out! Yay! Joy to the world! Sorrow!

Okay, I’m not going to miss my Biology quizzes, but I will miss my textbook. I won’t miss the last day before submitting an essay, but I will miss the research. I shall not miss– um, yeah, okay, I liked everything about Anthropology. I shall not miss the business and lack of time, but I shall miss the learning! Annnnnd the structured schedule. And my professors. Annnnd my group mates.

Okay, okay. The truth has come out. *sniffles* I like school. I shall miss thee, school! Farewell, my treasured friend! Until this fall when we meet again!

Annnnnnd I’m terrible at old English. Eek.

However, in the absence of school work, I will have plenty of time to work on my stories. Or so I think. Because I also have… plenty of other things to take up my time to. Lol. Continue reading “Summer Time Is Here!”

A Great Big Thank You

Hey everyone,

I wanted to say thank you so much for all the comments and support you have me during the A to Z challenge. You all have shown me so much love, and I was often too busy to show any love back. Yet you all kept staying there for me… it’s impossible to explain how much that means to me. Thank you. Thank you soooooooo much.

I’ve learned my lesson… that’s for sure. Never ever do Camp NaNo while doing the A to Z  Blogging Challenge while trying to keep up with the Goodreads reading challenge while writing three capstone papers again. Never ever. Lol.

I’m going to start catching up on all the comments I haven’t replied to yet. If it’s on my blog, I promise I’ll respond. I’m also going to start going back through your guys’ blogs and catching up on all the awesomeness I missed.

Again, guys, thank you. Thank you so, so much.

Another quick note… May is National Foster Care Month. So, with each post this month, I’m going to include a quote about adoption or foster care. 😉
