New Years


So it’s new years eve, and I’m sitting here on my computer doing absolutely nothing… So I figured I’d post about what my crazy family is doing. My sister has two friends over and they are being entirely crazy. At first they were sitting on the floor and watching “I Still Psycho” or whatever it’s called, the new iCarly episode. And they were like SCREAMING… It was more scary than the show was.

Anyway so now I’m watching the two parts to the Sanctuary season finale. I LOVE it so much! First you have a depressed Nikola, who is so adorable and in need of a hug from Helen. Though I do feel bad for Henry, he has to deal with him. And then there’s that kiss, but that’s giving too much away, so I’ll stop there.

I hope you’re having a better New Year’s Eve, or New Year’s Day for those in time zones that are ahead of us. I shall be watching Sanctuary and reading books in hopes to finish a few before the new year. Why? Well because of the Goodreads challenge that you can find by clicking on the picture in my sidebar. Well Happy 2012 all, see you in the new year!

Author Contest


Alright so Maggie Stiefvater is having this give away for the end of the year. The parameters? Talk about one of your favorite blog posts that she’s written. Those who don’t have a favorite don’t qualify. Me being the author stalker that I am, I of course have a favorite blog post.

My favorite blog post would definitely have to be the one where she’s listing all of the things that she has to try and fit into her car. Mostly because it is a fairly large list for a fairly small car… The blog post can be found here: http://maggiestiefvater.blogspot.com/2011/07/square-peg-camaro-shaped-hole.html and the books that she writes can also be found there. It’s her blogger fan blog, but she has other ones as well.

You should totally read her books because they’re awesome! (No I was not paid to say this or told to say this in any way shape or form, I actually like them).  Anywho, Have fun exploring!

Christmas Goodies


So it’s Christmas here still, and I’m extremely happy with what I got for it. I got:

  • A Harry Potter T-shirt
  • A new Sansa-Fuse+ MP3 player
  • $30 dollars for use on the internet
  • Earings: penguins and these crystal things
  • A stuffed penguin that was hugging a fleece blanket.
  • Extremely fuzzy socks that are blue
  • Gertrude Hawk dark chocolate raspberry Santas

I intend to use the $30 on the internet for at least one Rhapsody subscription and then maybe something else… but IDK I’ll figure it out… Well anyway… Happy Christmas ALL!!! Or holidays to those who don’t celebrate Christmas. I hope your day was wonderful all the same. Finally, GERTRUDE HAWK IS THE MOST AMAZING STUFF EVERR!!!

Tortallan Roleplay


CALLING ALL PEOPLE WHO:

A.) Like to roleplay

B.) Like Tamora Pierce

C.) Like the Tortall Books

My friend and I are starting a Tortallan Roleplay, we are still in the construction phase but I thought I’d point it out before it was finished. In the sidebar of this blog there is a section that says Role Plays, and in that section we will have a new button soon (I hope) that will provide a link to the roleplay. Until then I’m going to leave this post with a link and you can get it from there. There isn’t much in the way of information yet but it’s coming probably by the end of this week.

So anyway here’s the link: http://z13.invisionfree.com/War_Mage/index.php?act=idx

An Interesting Point


So I was just reading a blog post by the author Maggie Stiefvater about what defines a “proper writing education” and I thought I’d share the link with anyone who reads this because I completely agree. Her point was that although you may not need a college degree to get published, you do need to know what on earth you’re doing. How you go about finding that out is your own business. Well I’ll let you read the rest, I thought it was interesting at least….

TBR reading challenge


So there is this challenge on a really cool book blog I found, and since I’m going to be reading anyway I figured, why not enter? So what you need to do… you need to read a certain amount of books and review them and get points, and entries into a book contest… If you want to check it out, there is a widget that I think links to it on my sidebar.

The list of my “To Reads” is quite long but can be found here http://www.goodreads.com/tonks4life  but I will probably finish a lot during December so, I will have to post a TBR list later. So time to post this, link it up… and then put the widget in…
