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
I have officially finished my college essay! Yay! Break out the chocolate and other celebratory things! Now all I need to do is submit it, and then I’m officially applied to a college! *happy dances*
Other than that, NaNoWriMo ends later today and I need to work to finish that as well. It will be a very eventful day… But once all of this is over I can finally get to that HUGE “To Read” list that I have acquired. If you would like to see what is on that “To Read” list or if you would like to get one of your books onto the “To Read” list, you can find it here: http://www.goodreads.com/tonks4life hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! and a wonderful end to National Novel Writing Month.
So I just won a copy of the Ebook of Paradox: The Angels Are Here and you can get it too! Click the link below to get the book and read some reviews. I’ll post my review via Goodreads once I read it so follow me and you’ll get that soon hopefully! Stay tuned.
So I just got my Pottermore Email, and I’ve made my way through the first chapter of the first book on Pottermore. It is really very interesting because some of the stuff that’s on there is interesting, and it made me have to go read the first book again. In re-reading the first book, I have discovered that Aunt Petunia is blonde. I know that I read the book before I saw the movie but the fact that they came out at the same time probably just made me think that she was brunette.
I have also started re-reading The Immortals Series by Tamora Pierce, and I noticed that Jonathan has a beard. I never noticed that before, and I never would have pictured him with a beard. So my question is, has this ever happened to anyone? Have you ever pictured a character one way, and then realized that that’s totally not how he or she is described? Comment with your answers, if you give a character name, title and author please? I’m always looking for good suggestions…
Why hello there everyone, I was just reading a blog post by the amazing author of The Wolves of Mercy Falls series, which I happen to love. She just announced a contest to get an advanced copy of her latest book. Which is due to come out one day before my birthday, on October 18th, (this can be found on the goodreads page for The Scorpio Races). What do I have to do? Well I have to write this post and embed the book trailer on it. So that is what I shall do. But first I’m going to mention this site: http://www.fountainbookstore.com/autograph-maggie which is where you can pre-order the signed copy of the book. Now back to embedding the vid.
Let’s see if that worked…. woo hoo! It worked… well have fun watching the vid, and check out the rest of her books. You can find her site here: http://maggiestiefvater.com/
Alright so the amazing J.K. Rowling announced that she is giving the Harry Potter fans a safe site to be a fan. It’s to be kid friendly so all the pervs that happen to happen upon this don’t be PERVS! Anyway, this site can be found at http://www.pottermore.com and she announced it on Youtube. So if you search for an account under J.K. Rowling you will probably find the video but if you don’t want to take FOREVER! to find it you can just find the link on http://www.mugglenet.com .
Now if you are just checking this out you might not know that I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan and I am SO EXCITED for this. It comes out as a fully functional site in October. And I really hope that I don’t get annoying comments bashing Harry Potter but feel free to discus this and voice your opinion. Especially if you are as excited for this as I am. Well have fun Potterheads and may Harry Potter live in your hearts for forever.
One more page in the story of the X-Men
So this movie goes back in time to the Cold War era, and even farther than that, to take you back in time to see the horrific conditions that the amazing characters had to live through. The effects and screen writing of this movie were absolutely amazing! So many things were just right and yet others were probably changed. I am definitely a fan of this movie, though having never read the comic books I suppose I’m not the one you should be asking. However, I have watch every single movie, as they came out, and have loved every one of them.
Their cast was perfect! The guy who played Mr. Thomas in Narnia as Professor X, the guy who played Jane Eyre’s employer as Magneto, and so many more awesome stars. I would completely suggest going to see it. So if you have time on your weekends or during the week, you should totally go see it.
- Captain Jack Sparrow returns for an adventurous fourth movie!
I went to see this movie last night and I must say that it was AMAZING! I absolutely loved it! It was back to Jack, no overwhelming romance that dragged on too long, just Jack and his awesomeness. If you click on the picture it will take you to the Wikipedia page for the movie this will give you a synopsis and a character list with the actors. One reason why I loved this movie so much was because it not only focused more on Jack but it gave him an almost human quality whilst still going back to the first movie and joking about what he had said in there and some previous actions.
Some of the general things about this movie are: Blackbeard, the esteemed pirate of old, is the villain in this movie. The plot revolves around his need for the Fountain of Youth. Barbosa is back! Jack the monkey is here! and there are mermaids, and zombies. BUT! They are not your classic mermaids, they are beautiful, they can sing , they prey on sailors, yes, but they have deadly fangs almost like vampires.
I would definitely recommend that you go see it, but if you do, I suggest you study up on your lore, and your Pirate movies because you will need it to understand some parts of the movie. Have fun, oh and look out for a Harry Potter character in your movie going experience because I assure you if you look carefully enough you will find one.

So our school took us to see Jane Eyre today for almost an entire day of school and it was AWESOME! Not only did we get to go see the movie but it was a private screening just for us and I got to see it with my friends. It was an amazing movie! On a five star scale, in terms of movies, I would give it 4.5 stars. It fell short of 5 stars because it was hard to understand some of the actors at times and the sound was sometimes overwhelming. On the other hand as far as the book is concerned it was missing a lot and organized differently but that made it new and interesting.
So what am I trying to say? I’m trying to say that you should totally go see this movie and yes you should always read the book first. Not because you’ll get less from the movie than you would the book, but because the book is just so good, and such a classic. It’s really an amazing book, and then the movie will just make it all that much better. So go see it! Oh one thing I didn’t like at all was his beard in the end… It looked disgusting… *shudders* Anyway click the picture above to get to fandango if you feel like ordering tickets… (U.S. only I think).

Hits theaters July 15th
Alright so most of the people reading won’t care but my weekend now consists of Script Frenzy, homework, and sickness. Now that probably sounds pretty horrible but I will say this I’m having the best night right now! Why you ask? Because I’m home alone, eating popcorn for dinner, and having a Harry Potter movie marathon, with no noises, and no obnoxious people to ruin it for me. Does that make me sound like a nerd? I think it does, but I don’t care!
Anyway I hope your weekends are just as awesome as mine is! And to all of those people who are doing Script Frenzy good luck and have fun! And don’t procrastinate nearly as much as I am… it’s not good for you or your scripts.
Oh and by the way Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 comes out on July 15th, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 comes out on DVD on April 15th. I and I’m fairly sure warnerbrothers.com is giving out a discount for pre-ordering the DVD. Also http://www.fandango.com works with http://insiderrewards.warnerbros.com and regal crown club so when you pre-order tickets to the last movie or anyother WB movies you will get points. I suggest you join it saves alot of money! Anyway that is all.
