Update

Hello all!

Sorry I haven’t been posting very much recently, I’ve been really busy with my last few weeks of the semester! I went home early last weekend to help out with an open house for my brother’s business so I didn’t have time to post or write. The next 2-3 weeks will still be extremely busy but I will try to post as much as I can.

Just a heads up, once my semester is over I will be returning home for summer where we have no internet. Shocking as it is to you that there are places out in the world without WiFi or even Dial-Up, it’s actually really nice. It forces you to get things done, like gardening which I am REALLY looking forward to this summer. But this doesn’t mean I’m never blogging here again till school starts! I’ll be able to go to our library and use their internet to blog and such.

Have a great week everyone!

New Book!

Over my long weekend home for Easter, my boyfriend and I went to the bookstore. He was looking for something to read for school and I tagged along helping him look for a good one (he’s a bit picky with books but that’s a good thing).

As I was searching the paperbacks, I found this book called Graceling. I suddenly remembered that a friend had recommended it to me ages ago! We share similar tastes in books so I took her word for it and bought the book.

Now I haven’t finished it yet, but so far I love it! It reminds me a bit of Shannon Hale and Tamora Pierce’s writing combined. Basically, there are seven kingdoms and throughout those kingdoms there are people who are born with a Grace. A Grace is kinda like a magical gift or talent. Some have a Grace for swimming or cooking meats. The main character Katsa is Graced with killing. That’s as far as I am right now but I love the concept and the writing!
