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!
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!!!
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
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…
Paradox: The Angels Are Here by Patti Roberts
Okay I’m only like four pages into it, so I’m in the middle of the preface and I must say that I’m kind of not liking the preface. It seems really disjointed and the writing is awkward. But that could just be me. I loved the very beginning and I’m sure it will get so much better. But right now, it’s just a little weird. Eh not much to do but to read on I suppose. More to come when I’ve finished it.

So it’s day 13 of NaNoWriMo and I’m technically supposed to be at 21666 and I am only at 6609, but you know what, I don’t really care because I have a college essay to finish and homework that I have to do. But first I thought I’d see if anyone else was having better luck with NaNoWriMo than I was. Anyone have word counts? Or questions?
haha I love how I’m asking this like I have actual followers, well if I do, and you feel like commenting with your questions or comments about NaNoWriMo and it’s AWESOMENESS! I’ll post a new post with the answers to the questions, and reply to the comments on this post. Also, if you want to read my NaNoWriMo so far, I’m keeping it updated on Figment.com and the link is here: http://figment.com/books/167078-The-History-of-Utano and you can also ask questions about that, on here too. When I have time to remember what I need to edit on my word count widgets to get them to look all awesome and stuff I’ll post one for this. Maybe one day, I’ll actually do something with them and get them published, but they have to be good enough first.
The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I don’t really like this style of writing, mostly because I’m not a fan of verse. The other reason I didn’t necessarily like this was because some of the stories were just kind of, vulgar, and really disgusting. I read this for British Literature in school, and we had to do projects on it, and I don’t really know why I disliked it as much as I did. I mean was it interesting in some parts, but others it was too much, or just wasn’t finished.
I guess it was just not my style…

So it was pointed out to me that I didn’t have my goodreads set to public so who ever went to my profile page couldn’t see it. Well now that is fixed so feel free to click on the link and go get book recommendations from me. Yup! so here’s the link: http://www.goodreads.com/tonks4life sorry that that wasn’t working before.
You can get book recommendations and follow good authors or get book recommendations from the authors. You can also give book recommendations or you can make your own reviews and have your own book blog or review session…. or whatever. It’s more fun with friends too!
I was not paid for or made to give this advertisement and goodreads is a free site. So if you think this is done because I have to or is one of THOSE blogs, you’re wrong. I’m not trying to sell you anything, though if I were to try and sell you anything it would be this AWESOME glow in the dark nail polish that I’m wearing. It is from Hot Topic and can be found and ordered at http://www.hottopic.com and don’t worry about the fact that it says black light, it works in any light and when you turn the light off it actually glows. But it has to be charged kinda… well anyway. I’m getting off topic.
Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Okay so upon re-reading this book for the third time, I came to realize that I never did a goodreads review for it. As the stars can suggest, I absolutely love this book. Why you ask? Well I don’t really know, I can’t quite put my finger on it. Well let’s start at the begining and go from there.
This is book one in The Immortals series by Tamora Pierce, who is and amazing author. It follows an funny, yet somewhat clueless at times, girl who is hiding a secret she thinks is very dangerous. And I suppose when you look at her past, it can be. But then she meets Onua, a pony collector for The Queen’s Riders of Tortall, who is sarcastic, and altogether awesome. She comes with her own pony Cloud, the only friend she has left, and comes to work for Onua.
On their way to deliver said ponies in comes a hawk, and thus the trouble begins. Now, I’m pretty much summarizing the book from this point up. So I’ll get to saying why I like it so much. One: Daine is awesome, and a wild mage. Two: Numair, the hawk that causes so much trouble, is adorable and funny. Three: Skysong is the most adorable thing in the world. Four: I love action packed books that keep me excited and laughing with every page.
