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.

Dawn Dagger’s Challenge

Hey, all!

Ok, first off… thank you! In five days, I already have 9 followers. That is… amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you. 😀 I’m shocked speechless.

And secondly… Dawn Dagger’s Challenge!

Dawn Dagger (click here for her blog) is an author friend of mine who is also in the process of publishing her story, I am Ombre: Shadow.

Shadow‘s blurb:

Well, if you’re looking for a feel good story, walk away now!

But, on the other hand, if you’re looking for a good book about me getting hurt a lot, love(ish), getting caught and escaping, being chased by crazed Shadow Hunters, and people with powers, THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU!

Follow me, Ombre, as I deal with Shadow Hunters, Scorch (a quiet boy who knows me better than I know myself ), Grace, my own anger, and just about everything else life could possibly throw at me!

If you have a Wattpad account, you can read the beginning parts of it there. 😀
