I like your 'hidden' details on content. Nice idea. Hope your week has been good. Happy Reading! I feel like fairy tale books are everywhere lately! I read Kill Me Softly, and thought it would be cheesy as well, but was pleasantly surprised. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.

The ending is satisfying and, because of the implications of what happens in the story, leaves the world open for more, though at this point a sequel is not in the works but Sarah has said that she misses the main character, Pearl. From Goodreads. You find the lump of tree the big central theme that gets you started , and you start cutting the shape that you think you want it to be. But you find, if you do it right, that the wood has a grain of its own characters develop and present new insights, concentrated thinking about the story opens new avenues.
He is the author of The Inheritance Cycle which begins with Eragon and concludes with the recently released Inheritance hence the book tour. Check out the Provo Library's photo albums on Facebook here and here. Courtney Lowe dressed up as a human Saphira the main dragon in the series and one young person even made and wore a cardboard version of Saphira see below or the FB albums for both pictures! Christopher gave a great presentation about his books, his journey to publication, and even threw in a few random, fun, personal stories. He even read a little bit from each of his four books!
Also, unfortunately not caught in the video below, Christopher even did a cartwheel! He's one cool dude. I think that's why he had a bodyguard no, seriously. He had a bodyguard -so he wouldn't get mauled by all of the single girls. He's not married, you know. Anyway, polish your sword and warm up your dragon! It's time for the show! My photos are at the end of this post if you'd like to see them.
Art is knowing which ones to keep.
I just can't get enough of these covers the other two are further down! Aren't they beautiful? Danyelle's writing is fresh and clear and her characters are easy to imagine.
She has done a great job at crafting believable personalities and a rich setting. Totally random: Guess what.
On Danyelle's Amazon author page, she has the G. Chesterton quote about fairy tales --the same one that I posted here on the blog not too long ago! Yep, she's cool.
Krysykat Because I Said So! I have sent Krysykat an email. If I don't get a reply by Friday night I will choose another winner. Thank you to everyone who entered! I hope you have an awesome holiday season! Nicholas Day! Or Dinosaur Bob, or Santa Calls?
Or Robots movie? Those were written, illustrated, and created by William Joyce sometimes with some help. He's got his hands into both books and movies for children. In honor of Saint Nicholas Day today, I'd like to feature Joyce's new series, The Guardians of Childhood , which is being released in both picture book and novel formats. The first picture book in the series is The Man in the Moon see description further down and the first novel is Nicholas St.
North and the Battle of the Nightmare King pictured left. There will be six novels total, the next of which will be E. AND a movie is slated for Winter tentatively or maybe permanently called "Rise of the Guardians". Another Joyce book, The Leaf Men , is in production to become a film for It is now December. We are on the very verge of Winter and Christmas.
I can't help but think of The Chronicles of Narnia by C. Lewis at this time of year. This month, I will feature a few recipes from Narnia , including the best Turkish Delight recipe I have found yet. But today is not that day. McCready to make Lucy a cup of hot chocolate when Lucy is distraught.
So the hot chocolate is not only from the White Witch. I thought cocoa and roasted apples sounded nice together. I didn't want to only give you the hot chocolate recipe. But the other recipes I'll put up on the subsequent December Mondays will also go well with the cocoa. Stay tuned. And don't worry, I will not be posting the recipe for Puddleglum's Eel Stew. LDS, YA author Elana Johnson is awesome in so many ways see previous post here , but today I'd like to feature her awesomeness concerning query letters.
