(I read 2 more books last moth #randomfact)


Flight Into Spring: This was so sweet and short and gah I loved it. I re-read it two times in a row and it is now one of my all time favorite books! (not to be compared to Jane Austen or Sherlock Holmes though, an all-time short sweet book xD)

Chronicles of Downton Abbey: MORE DOWNTON KNOWLEDGE THANK YOU (I actually bought this :DDD)

The Mysterious Affair at Styles: I love mysteries! I really enjoyed my first time with Agatha Christie, but I still love Sherlock more xD

Angela's Ashes: This one was super interesting! Since I'm working on the story of an Irish immigrant, my mom told me to read this one! It was really good!!


To Kill a Mockingbird: It actually took me a little to get into, but once I did, I couldn't stop! This book is really deep and everyone should read it!

Shooting Stars: My dad gave me this as summer reading, and it preeetty cool! My favorite one was how Handel (I almost wrote Hayden *fp*) wrote the Messiah


The Age of Innocence: ASudhifdjbanjkfxfsahdfsf *huffs* I started out liking this book but....no....did not like it

Judah's Sceptre: I wish I had a more in-between category. Because I didn't really DISLIKE it, but I didn't really LIKE it (review coming soon!)

Books I Hope To Read This Month

Heartless, Marissa Meyer; Victoria: Portrait of a Queen, Catherine Reef; Everything She Didn't Say, Jane Kirkpatrick; Wives and Daughters, Elizabeth Gaskell; Cranford, Elizabeth Gaskell; North & South, Elizabeth Gaskell; Amish Celebrations, Beth Wiseman; The Big House on Adams Street, Alberta Sparks; The Centurion's Wife, Janette Oke, Davis Bunn; Victoria, Daisy Goodwin;  A Murder is Announced, Agatha Christie; 'Tis, Frank McCourt; Teacher Man, Frank McCourt; Junia, Michael E.

Still liked him and the rest of this period drama tho xDDD

I had a writing schedule for Colm *coughhadcoughcough* But it was really unrealistic so I have to make a new one :/

Also, I recreated that one story I locked in the dungeon. It's A LOT different now but it's actually GOOD NOW WHAT??

And I'm working on a short novella that is turning out pretty sweet! Once I finish, though, I will be looking for some Alpha's! So keep an eye out!

I didn't get all the posts out that I wanted to, but my last weeks got really busy, but I shall try to do better this month!

13 Reasons Why . . . You Should Watch Downton Abbey

How was your August? Have you started school yet? What are you most looking forward to this month?

Make-Up Book Tag {Tag}

I stole this from MK #noregrets

I did tell her and she told me to do it. You can find her first version here and the second one here. I'm giving anyone permission to steal this because apparently it will be stolen so many times that maybe it'll be known as the "Stolen Make-Up Book Tag".

So yeah, let's get to the tag

1. Primer: A book that left a lasting impression on you

This one is pretty hard...But I'm going to have to go with To Kill A Mockingbird or A Rumored Fortune. In To Kill A Mockingbird, just the way racial differences can affect the way someone thinks really stood out to me and saddened me. During the court scene, my heart was pounding and I had to put the book down for a second after the verdict was proclaimed. For A Rumored Fortune, I really enjoyed the spiritual element. I came away with a really good lesson after I finished that book.

2. Foundation: A favorite first book in a series

Um..... Actually, this is kinda easy but yeah xD Two favorite firsts are Cinder and The Goose Girl.

3. Concealer: Pick some characters you wish didn't exist

Ellen Olenska and Newland Archer, The Age of Innocence. Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh. I reaaaaaaaaaaaaally hated themmmm. I'm actually (hopefully) posting a review on this book later today at Southern Belles' Book Club so keep an eye out for that. But yeah, I really did not like those two.

4. Powder: Pick your favorite book from the end of a series

Now, this IS a hard one......I'm going to give a few because I honestly can't choose a favorite: Winter, The Return of the King, Forest Born, and The One (even though that one had me on the edge of my seat the whole time)

5. Eyebrows: Pick a book you think everyone should read

It's sorta hard to pick ONE book you think everyone should read because everyone has their own preferences, but one book that I normally recommend to people it The Goose Girl

Image result for the goose girl book cover

6. Eyeshadow: Pick a book with your favorite colors on the front

The Selection, Flight Into Spring, The Siren

11. Lipstick: Your favorite book kiss

Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum am I honestly supposed to ANSWER THAT????

But fine! I'll limit myself to fifty five. It will be in spoilers (so basically just highlight the coming text to see it) -That Kai/Cinder kiss at the end of Cress, That Akinli/Kahlen kiss in The Siren, The Bear/Blanche kiss at the end of Black As Night, The Donegan/Tressa kiss in A Rumored Fortune, and the Ryland/Miranda kiss in A Noble Masquerade- You can see which books they are because of the covers below, but you won't know which KISSES unless you read the spoiler.
