Rainland by Sarah Allerding

                                                Author: Sarah Allerding
                                                Title: Rainland
                                                Series: --
                                                Genre: Fantasy
                                                Audience: Childrens

  When Thomas gets caught in a summer storm, he is sucked into the world of raindrops through a tornado. He learns he will not be allowed to return until he can defeat the lightning, which has been hurling raindrops from the clouds. Many adventures await him in this strange land. Is everything just as the raindrops say it will be? Is it the lightning they need to defend themselves against, or is there a much greater foe behind the disturbing disappearances?

                                                                   My Review
                                                              Rating: Four Stars
Okay, this book was so cute. The characters, the story, it was super charming.  Especially Drip, he was adorable. I loved his vigor for preparing food for Thomas. xD  
  The writing was done very well too. Though you would think a world where raindrops walk and talk could get confusing, it wasn’t. It wasn’t expounded upon really, but it did explain a bit why they could. The lands we went to were seriously so cool too! Like, I especially liked the Flame’s land. *whispers* It is like seriously cool.
   My only problem was, how the little raindrops could cry if they themselves were water, and how they could have ice boxes when they would have had to froze some of their own to get one….. Anyways, those aren’t a big deal though so….
   Overall, it was fast paced, endearing, and a very enjoyable story. I recommend it for anyone looking for a fun, lighthearted read. I’m sure you’d enjoy this book.

 Sarah is a homeschool graduate who enjoys using her imagination to write fiction. She is working on a degree in theology and hopes to eventually work in the church. She also enjoys umpiring baseball, writing devotions and Bible studies, reading fiction, and playing the guitar.

Song of the Sword by Hope Ann Schmidt Book Review

Author: Hope Ann
Title: Song of the Sword
Series: Legend of the Light
Genre: Fantasy
Audience: --

Evrard and Roinette, twins separated at birth, are caught in a battle beyond their own limited powers. With their ability to walk in the melody realm, catching glimpses of the light and darkness underlying Aslaria, comes even more danger.

Deadly mistbenders. Writhing walls of blankness. Hateful drumbeats. As a warrior in the Melody, Evrard has seen it all. But his own ability in the melody realm pales in comparison to the Prince’s melody, the legendary prowess of past Wingmasters, and even the depth of his sister’s song. 

                                                          My Review
                                                    Rating: Four point five stars

When I saw the blurb for this book on Hope Ann’s blog, I immediately wanted to read it. It's a re-telling of Repunzel, and Repuzel is like, my favorite fairy-tale. (#tangledisbetterthanfrozen) It sounded soooo awesome, and I was totally not let down in my expectations for this book!

  The characters, I very much liked. Especially the villain….. Okay, yes, I am aware you aren’t supposed to like villains, but seriously? A Mistbender! Even the title is cool, not to mention they are like, creepy and wear dark hoods and stuff……. *coughs* Okay, let’s just move past the villain, and move to the protagonists. Edvard and Roinette shared a dual point of view, and I just loved them. They were super lovable. *huggles them* I also thought it was super cool that the author spun off from the typical romantic relationship, to a very sweet, sibling relationship.

   The plot was very intriguing. It had many twists that were like totally awesome. And also, I was impressed by the writing. Hope Ann’s writing was very expressive, and flowing. And like, it was like, okay, I loved the thing with the transporting-ishness to the Melody, and GUYS THERE IS A SHAPESHIFTER IN THIS!!! *flails* Shapeshifting is like, one of my favorite superpowers! (Though, I mean, I don’t know if you would call it a superpower in here, but anyho) 

  My only problem is that I was a bit confuddled by the mist, and the melody. Such as, was it a different world or just like, an unveiling of the evil present in the world they were already in. (Edit- this may have been explained in book one, which I have not read yet)  But all in all, I immesnly enjoyed this book. Intriging, full of awesome twists, and totally cool characters.

Sparrow by Mandy Fender Book Review

  Book: Sparrow

  Author: Mandy Fender

  Series: Defier Trilogy #2

  Genre: Dystopian

  Audience: Young Adult 


Lennox Winters is guilty. She stood in defiance against the Regime when no one else would. Now, she must train to become a Sparrow and fight for what she believes.
When the war breaks out in her hometown, she is forced to decide whether she will obey orders or rebel against the authority she respects. Either way, she must protect those she loves most, no matter the dangers.

 My Review
    My Rating: Five Stars
  Just to warn you, this is probably going to be a short, fangirly review. I’ve been putting off writing this review, because, this book is just….. LIKE AHHHHH! WHAT EVEN! MY EMOTIONS ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE! Excuse me, while I just like, cry…in my dark, soggy alone place. *cries*
  If you read my review for Defier, you will know that this characters, I just adored. Seriously, I just want to hug them.  But do you know that saying, “Him who your heart adores, dies?” Oh, wait. No. I just made that up, but it is so true. Actually in this book, my favorite character didn’t die. IT WAS WORSE THAT DEATH! *sobs* WHY WOULD MANDY FENDER DO THIS TO MY EMOTIONS!?  Seriously, though, I was like, near tears, and that’s the farthest I get to crying in books. I feel as though my heart shan’t repair. *dies*
    I read it in a day and a half while in a reading slump. And this is a like, three hundred and fifty-page book peoples (I think), and I am like the slowest reader alive. It just killed me sooooo much!
   And yes. That’s all I have. *hides* Guys, this was like one of my favorite reads of 2016. Please, just go read it. I know this was more of a time to cry over the precious charries, but if you read the book…..You will understand.
   As for who I would recommend them too…. Ages: 13+ and to anyone who wants a good, dystopian read. But bring chocolate, and blankets. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. Now go read. Now. *hands you Sparrow and sits to wait till you finish so we can cry together*

Beautiful People~ July 2016!

Hey all! *waves* So, I realized I haven’t posted in forever, and it was awful of me. Anyways, I’m doing a post now. Hopefully soon, I’ll be able to write reviews for the books I read, because I have read books since my last review.

  Anyways, some of you may know I am doing Camp NaNoWriMo, and I was talking with my lovely cabin mate, Faith, and she told me her character, Bethany, was going to be doing a ‘guest post’ on her blog. I thought the idea was brilliant so, yes, I’m doing it. Well, Ryel is.

   So, I thought I should explain to y’all what my story is about. Basically, it’s about a Prince, who was kidnapped as a baby, and raised as a bandit. The story takes place when the Prince is eighteen, (his name being Shadow, but his Prince name is Torrent. (BTW, If you were wondering, nature names are common in my story. It’s kind of a culture thing)) So, yes, the Prince now, (Shadow’s younger brother, Storm) kind of went mad after realizing that Prince Torrent might still be alive. So, Quill sent Ryel undercover-ish to go try and find the Prince, and yeah, so…. yes. SHE FOUND HIM!!!! YAAAAAAASS!!!! Then more complications, bla, bla, bla, bla. *waves hand dismissively*
Anyway, over to Ryel! *quickly puts Ryel in the spotlight and hides behind laptop to watch*


Ryel! (pronounced Rye-el):   *waves* Hello all! My name is Ryel Quinten. I am seventeen years old, and I am the servant to Lady Quill, you may have heard of her, *waves hand* Well, of course you have. She’s quite well known. I mean, she was to marry the Prince! If you hadn’t—

  Hannah- I think they get the picture, Ryel.

  Oh! Of course! Alright, so yes, I am Ryel. I’ll just start on the questions now before I start talking about something else. 


  Oh, this is a good one. *rubs hands together* I might need some time though. It’s rather tough…. I believe it would be nice to marry, but I don’t really know. Preferably, I would like to, and have a few children, but I would be fine with being happily, what do you call it? Single? Yes, happily single. 


  Well, I was never one for weapons. Maybe stealth? I tend to be very noisy, and I feel as if stealth would be very great to learn.


  Oh, this is kind of hard. Hmm, I would have to say…. Oh, my! Hannah, my mind totally went blank! Um, maybe helped Quill through the time when Storm kind of.... broke their engagement, and was acting a little….. irrational?   That’s the only thing that comes to mind at the moment. I’m not too great at spontaneous questions like this.

   Oh, well. There was this one time, when, Quill sneaked up behind me when we were six, and I didn’t know it was her, so I spun around, and slapped her hard in the face. But that was accidental. *grins*


  I like to think of myself as a rebel. Quill and I have gone on many adventures where we might have slightly bent the rules. It’s great fun!


  Definitely messy. Being a servant you would think organized, but cleaning is not my forte.


  Hmmm, well, I suppose when they will listen to my ramblings. I tend to rattle off lots of information, and when people will listen it makes me feel special. There are other smaller things, but I might be here all night, if I go into that. *winks* Anyway, the last person that made me feel like that? Um, probably, Quill? I would say Shadow, but Quill and I talked the whole night last night. It was, as you all say, awesome.  


  Coffee. I usually actually don’t eat breakfast. I’m not a morning person, and usually just drink coffee. Hannah says that’s like her.


  Well…my parents died when I was very young. I don’t remember them though. After, I was privileged to get a position at the Quill’s family manor. Thankfully, I still have my sister, who works in the village bakery. We met every week and just talk or maybe adventure somewhere.


  Oh my! So many! I looooove cookies! Hannah adores cookies as well, so she made them the Castle’s regular treat. (Though not many people know that, for it’s not mentioned in the story.)   

  Oh! Are there no more questions? *looks around for more* Oh, well that’s sad. I greatly enjoyed talking with you all! I think Hannah is going to let me take over the comments as well, so if there is anything you would like to ask me, go ahead and ask them! Any question, really! I’ve heard about you all, and I totally can’t wait to meet you! Anyway, I think Hannah wants to ‘wrap it up’ now. So, I’ll have to say goodbye. *hugs each one of you*


   Yup! That’s it. Hope you all enjoyed. For the question thing, if you have questions for Ryel, I will let her comment back, but if it’s a normal comment, I will be commenting as myself. So, yup! Hopefully soon, I'll be back with Shadow. He refused to be in the post, so I'll have to Ryel to convince him to do it. Anyways, Hasta Luegio! I have to go inflict more pain on my charries....I mean, write. :P

Next , and final book, is... Spindle by Shonna Slayton

What’s a series you recommend to everyone!

Who’s an author you hope writes more?

  I always get confused by this question. I hope certain authors write more, but I know that they already are writing more. Other authors I don't know if they are writing more or not, but I'm pretty sure they are. So, I don't really have an answer to this question.

A few books your heart adores

Defy by Tricia Mingerink Book Review

Title: Defy

Author: Tricia Mingerink

Series: The Blades of Acktar

Genre: Fantasy

Audience: Young Adult

What The Book Is About
The war for Acktar has begun.

With his betrayal revealed, former Blade Leith Torren flees into the Sheered Rock Hills, pursued by King Respen’s vengeful Blades.

Left behind at Nalgar Castle, Renna Faythe tries to find her purpose, yet that purpose isn’t what she expected.

Brandi Faythe has been torn from her sister, and that isn’t all right. If Leith can’t rescue Renna, Brandi will take matters into her own hands.

War demands sacrifice. Courage falters. Who will find the strength to defy King Respen?
Acktar rests on one hope:

The Leader is ready.
                                                                               My Review
                                                           Rating: Four-point Seventy-five

  Yet another incredible book by Tricia Mingerink. Having read her last two books and loving them, I was so excited to be part of the launch team for Defy. And may I just say, I am in love with this book!

  I’ll just start with the amazing characters. Renna, a healer, is one of my absolute favorite characters of all time! AHH, I just love her so much! It was just so amazing to see her journey from being the fearful girl in Dare, to being the strong woman she was in Defy. *hugs Renna*

   Also, Leith! I mean, who doesn’t love Leith. He was so awesome, and sweet. Almost too sweet, because he put himself in so much danger and I wanted him alive, and well. But no. *cries*

    In this book, we also got to adventure a bit more in Acktar. Like Eagle Heights! (*squeals* Yes, we get to go to Eagle Heights!) Then we had more time at Nalgar Castle, which I loved because I got to wander around the castle. I totally enjoyed going more places, and the parts of Acktar we went to were so awesome. I love how this series is a Fantasy, but it's set in a western like setting. :D

      -Cons-  I thought Leith and Renna’s relationship went a bit fast towards the end. Once they found out they both liked each other, they were quite touchy feely. Also, resistance was very, very much pushed in this book. Being non-resistant myself, I didn’t agree with this, but I didn’t lower the rating for difference in views.

  As for who I would recommend this to: Anyone who is a fan of TBoA, (duh, Hannah. They probably already read it.) and anyone looking for an awesome, Christian fantasy read. The age would probably be fourteen and up due to some torture, and violence.

About the Author

The Remnants: Season of Wonder by Lisa T. Bergren Book Review

The Remnants: Season of Wonder by Lisa T. Bergren

Title: The Remnants: Season of Wonder

Author: Lisa T. Bergren

Series: The Remnants Trilogy

Genre: Dystopian

Audience: Young Adult

                                                             What The Book is About

   After years of training in stealth and warfare, Andriana and her Knight protector, Ronan, are finally ready to answer the Call and begin the life they were designed for. But as they embark with the other Remnants on the first of their assignments, they quickly discover that the world beyond their protected Valley is more dangerous than they imagined.

                                                                         My Review

                                                                     Rating: Four Stars

   I picked this book up a while ago at Thrift Books on a whim. I had money, I liked the cover, and I wanted to read another book by Lisa T. Bergren. I didn’t know how much I would like this book, but I was pleasantly surprised.

   Oky doky, let’s talk about the characters.  This book follows a girl named Andriana, an Alith, one of the few chosen by the Maker to save the world! *cue dramatic music* At first I was skeptical at the whole save the world thing. It sounds like every book. Ever. But it was its own unique book. I enjoyed it significantly. :D  But back to Andriana, and the other characters. This book held many memorable characters. I have to say my favorite was probably Niero, the leader of the Alith. He seemed to have a story that I very much want to know. *narrows eyes*

   Another thing I liked about this book was that it was love triangle free!!!! *throws confetti* You would think with all the other male characters about, that Andriana would start to like someone else besides Ronan, but thankfully no. I was very happy about that. I liked that in the book she could just have a handsome, male friend. Not have to have a triangle, and make them out to be a complete jerk. I love the Alith’s brother\sister like relationship.

   The setting? Well sit down honey. Let me tell ya about the land we like to call *coughs* AMERICA IN THE FUTURE! Years ago the world was like destroyed (To be honest, I forget how it was destroyed). As a result, we have no advanced technology. We are transported to a time with swords, and all that cool stuff. No cars either, but we have motorbikes. Basically, midevil with motorbikes. 

  Another cool thing is that each Alith had like a super power. Okay, it was categorized a super power, but I like to say it was. Andriana’s is that she can read people’s emotions. I thought that was super cool!

   The problems? Well, I thought it started out a bit slow. It just seemed to drag for the first 100 pages. Once you get past those, you’re stuck to your seat.  Also, I felt like Ronan and Andriana went a bit fast at the end in their relationship. But I knew Lisa Bergren’s writing style, and I was expecting it.

    As for who I would recommend this for, probably 14 and up. There was quite a bit of talk on the corruption of the city, and I wouldn’t recommend that for any younger than that. 


Defier: The Girl Who Stood by Mandy Fender Book Review

Title: Defier: The Girl Who Stood

Author: Mandy Fender

Series: Defier, #1

Genre: Dystopian

Audience: Young Adult

                                                             What the book is about……

  When her faith makes her a target, Lennox Winters must leave everything she knows behind, and face the harsh truth of what her world has become. The raised scar on her chest reminds her she still has a purpose, but is her purpose worth the sacrifice? With a new Regime taking over America and imprisoning Christians, she must decide what is worth fighting for. They said her faith would be the death of her, but her faith made her alive. It is only when she has nothing else to lose that she discovers who she really is.

                                                                  My Review  

                                                         Rating: Four point Five Stars

  The First thing that really stood out to me was the cover. It was love at first sight. ;) I mean, look at it! It’s gorgeous! I then looked up the book on Goodreads, and when I read what it was about, I immediately wanted it. After getting it, I excitedly tried to finish my current read quickly so as to read this, and I was not disappointed.   

   Let’s take a look at the characters, shall we? My favorite thing in this book had to be the characters. They were amazing, and I loved them so much. *hands them special chocolate* Lennox, the main character, was so marvelous. I just loved her so much. And we can’t forget Sky, now can we. Sky was super charming! And when Lennox seen his notebook…..*squeaks happily* I was totally fangirling!

  Now to the setting. At first I was uncertain of the setting. The book is set in the year 2030, and seemed almost like a contemporary. Me not being the biggest contemporary fan was kind of leery of it. But then we got to later in the book, and we see all these cool sci-fi electronics, and inventions gizmos! I ended up rather liking it. :D

   The Story line was very griping. It was full of awesome twists, and turns. And as I said up above, it had lots of cool electronics and inventions that had me captivated. The villains were great as well. They were positively chilling.  

  As for the problems, there was one. I wasn’t too crazy about the writing. It felt a bit distant. Like I was being told the story, rather than experiencing it. Other than that, this book was fabulous!

   As for who I would recommend it for, I would recommend it to anyone looking for an inspiring, Christian Dystopian. As for recommended age, probably thirteen and up.

 I received Defier: The Girl Who Stood from the author in exchange for an honest review.

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things Tag!

I was tagged by Shantelle from A Writer’s Heart to do the My Favorite Things tag. Thank you again Shantelle for tagging me! So, what I am to do is....Number one, write down ten of my favorite things. Number two, tag at least three others. :D Now, without further ado, let's get started! :D

 BOOKS!!! Wow. Bet you didn’t see that coming. Yes, ever since that Dick and Jane book when I was five, I’ve been in love with reading. Hence my blog, youtube, bookstagram, and all the other social medias I have that revolve around books. But seriously, I love all things books. Books, Bookmarks, book Funko pops, bookish Fandom T-shirts, ect, ect, ect....

COFFEE. Everyone in my family, but my brother and mom are big coffee drinkers. There is usually always coffee brewing, and if not, someone complaining that someone took all the coffee. As a result, I became a coffee addict at a young age.



  AUTUMN! Fall is my favorite season EVER! I love the falling leaves, how it stays cool even in mid-afternoon, and you can’t forget the pumpkin spice lattes! (I don’t know why though. I don’t even like pumpkin spice. But it’s just so fall like. I have at least one pumpkin spice latte a year. To celebrate fall, of course.)

BROWN PAPER PACKAGES TIED UP WITH STRING. Okay, I couldn’t just not do a reference. I mean, it was right there! But, anyho. I do love getting mail. Especially packages because those are usually books. *grins*

SHARPENED PENICILS   These just make me happy because, um, I don’t have to look for a sharpener. In our house we barely ever have sharpeners. As a result, we always have to basically go on a quest to find one. :P  (BTW the picture is colored pencils, and where these make me happy too. I was meaning Number two pencils. I just couldn't find any cool pictures, and this one was to pretty not to put on.)

HIGHLIGHTERS I ADORE highlighters! I have a small box filled with highlighters, and I’ve dried almost all of them out. I use highlighters with almost anything I’m planning, or just to add a pop of color. (And aren’t those the coolest highlighters ever!!!! THEY’RE STARS!!!!!!!!!!)

GLITTER Whenever there is glitter around it makes me so happy. If there is a bottle of glitter, I’ll dump it on me to make myself glittery. Whenever I see a glitter something (like a notebook) I feel as if I must get it. In fact I have like three note books now that have glitter on them.


NOTEBOOKS I think a lot of people, especially writers, have a hard time passing the notebook aisle. I have an obsession with notebooks. I have about ten by my bed now.  

SWEET TEA Yup. This is the one thing I did get from being southern. I don’t have a southern accent, but I do love sweet tea. It tastes luscious on a hot summer day. *goes to make sweet tea*

  SUMMER VACATION!!!!!! And guess what. Today was my last day of school! *squeals excitedly* NO MORE SCHOOL! Just think, I’ll be able to read, like, all day!  I'm going to get my WIPs done too. This summer I'm going to accomplish things! (Hopefully ;)

                                   THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS!!!!
 *proceeds to sing My Favorite Things from The Sound of Music* Anyho, here is the part I say who I tag….

I tag…..*drumroll*

Anyone who wants to do this. If you are reading this, and want to do it. Tada, I just tagged you! Don’t you feel so special! ;) *hands you a cookie*
