18512
Samwise, the real hero, not Frodo. He survived and was still loyal when Frodo was loyal to gollum. He carried the food during the journey. He carried Frodo up the Mount of Doom. Who else does that?

44066702
Talfia Cricket, she is bad ass. She fights a evil spirits and saves the world.

HULK: A BOOK THAT MADE YOU INCREDIBLY ANGRY

28374370
This book made me so angry. Its a retelling of Romeo and Juliet. I enjoyed it until they added a scene that had no purpose at all. It was off detail sex scene. What why? If it wasn’t in the story, I would been greatly pleased but no. That had to ruin everything. 😦

HAWKEYE: AN UNDERRATED BOOK YOU THINK MORE PEOPLE SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO

69477
A dystopia/ post apocalyptic world: A girl who has to live post – nuclear war clueless if her any loved ones survived. She meets a man and she begins to have her doubts toward him. She questions if she trust or not? Check it out!!

*BONUS* LOKI: A BOOK WITH A TWIST OR SURPRISE THAT TRICKED YOU

17899948
This book gave me the shivers. I am surprised, shocked by the plot twist. Its disturbing. It reminds me a lot of
The Eligible Bachelor (Sherlock Holmes).

Elizabeth Noel Author Interview

Welcome back for a new blog post.

Day 4 of Dawn Chandler Blog Tour

Preorder the book.

Check out this giveaway to get a signed paperback of Dawn Chandler

Author: Eliza Noel

Author Bio: Eliza Noel is a home school graduate with passion for Jesus, people, and literature. Growing up, her favorite books were always Nancy Drew, Anne of Green Gables, and Pride and Prejudice. Around age twelve she wanted to read something with positive values in a modern setting, but couldn’t find what she was looking for. So she wrote it.

When not doing something book-related (reading, writing, blogging, bookstagramming), Eliza works at her day jobs, spends time with her many younger siblings, longboards, has coffee with friends, eats chocolate, and listens to music. California is home, but she would like to travel more and feels she could learn to be content anywhere.

Author Interview

1. What was your first idea of a story? The first one I can remember is, well, it wasn’t a good one, hahah…when I was very young I started designing a town called ‘Kidville’ where only kids were allowed. All the kids would drive those little cars, eat lots of candy and get jobs- ‘fun’ things kids typically aren’t allowed to do. Also they’d get kicked out the moment they turned 18. When I realized this wasn’t a realistic idea I decided to write a book about it instead. The most recent version (last worked on when I was eleven) was called U.S.K.O., which stood for United States of Kids Only.
2. Music or no music while writing?Music. 3. If you weren’t writing full time, what would you be doing?I’m actually working as a caregiver full time right now. My dream job though is to be a stay-at-home homeschooling mom. Until then I hope to keep writing books, travel and in general try new things!
4.What color aesthetic would you be your WIP? I’m not sure I completely understand what that means, but I’ve always pictured the cover having blue on it (and it does!), so maybe a blue aesthetic? 5. Where do most of your ideas come from?The ideas for Dawn Chandler came from a lot of real-life experiences. I have another book I hope to write that was inspired mostly by various song lyrics.
6. What is your favorite/least favorite part of the writing process?My favorite would be either the days of writing the first draft when the idea is new, exciting and all the words are flowing or reading beta reader input/advanced reviews. My least favorite is the part where I’m editing for what feels like the millionth time and questioning if anyone will ever enjoy the story.
7. Which famous person, living or dead would you like to meet and why?This isn’t really book-related, but the first person who popped into my mind was Phyllis Schlafly. She was a conservative who strongly opposed abortion and feminism. I did a research paper about her for my final school project and it was so neat to find someone who was such a strong supporter of being a homemaker when that’s so often looked down upon these days.
8. What are your writing dreams?Ooh, I like this question. I’d like to follow Dawn Chandler for several more years of her life, maybe even write a total of twelve books. Before doing that, I’ll probably take a break and write something completely new. I have various ideas, but one I’m especially excited about and have been for about four years. I’m keeping that secret for now though.

Fiona’s Hero: Part One

Its Monday. I decided that each Monday, I will posting a new blog post. These posts will be either book tags, stories, poetry, and book reviews. Lets see how long this will last.

Fiona’s Hero

Genre: christian fiction, short story

Synopsis: Fiona’s world begins to fall apart. After a recent gun shooting, her biggest supporter is gone. Now she is struggling to keep the faith, keep her grades up, and stay out of trouble. Will Fiona keep the faith in one of the darkest times of her life? Or will she blame God for losing her father?

Part One (The Bus Stop)

Rain poured down from the horizon as I lifted up my heavy book bag over my head. Rushing to the closest subway stop, I collapsed into the seat. I gasped as I realized that my science essay had fallen out of my bag and was soaking in a nearby puddle. Leaning my head back as I sighed. What was I going to tell mom?

The creaking of the bus stopped beside the subway as my ears cringed from the squeaky noise of the tires. Holding my back tight across my chest, I stood up and headed toward the door of the bus.

As the door opened my rival, Charles Avery stepped out of the bus.

He smirked in a mischievous matter. He raised his eyebrows as he saw me. “Oh hello, failing Fiona how is school treating you?”

I nodded my head trying to avoid the anger boiling inside of me.

“So how is doing school at home? Is it true that your mom pulled you out of school because you are failing?”

She bit her lip. It was true. I was failing. Failing so poor my GPA was under a 3.0. “No, my mom that it best for a better environment.”

He laughed. “Seriously, that is your answer. You will never be going to Harvard, Fiona. You are a failure just like your father.”

My father was not a failure. He died saving people’s lives. My heart began to race as I knew the waterworks were coming. “You’re just jealous. My father saved lives.”

“Your father could have stayed at the hospital where he belonged but no he decided to go the shooting and he was next victim of another shooting.”

“At least he was a hero and died a hero. Your father is a coward and only cares for himself.”

Throwing a punch toward me, I fell hard on the sidewalk. I knew I shouldn’t have at said but sometimes he has always got on my nerves. As my eyes fluttered open as one of my eyes squinted as the ache from the punch entered. He had punched me in the eye. What will I tell mom? Lifting myself off the ground, I realize that my backpack is out of sight. Rubbing my forehead, I stood up. Gathering up my dirty blonde hair in a ponytail, I head north off of Henry Street toward my neighborhood.

My spine shivered as past the theater where my father and so many victims died. Why did my father have to die? He could have lived a long life, but no you had to kill him. He was my backbone. I looked up in the sky. What do you want from me? You killed my father. You did it. 

Emotions

Another poetry post. I honestly don’t care if any of you decide to unsubscribe. I am clueless what do with this blog. I feel like I failed by not doing weekly posts like I promised from the beginning.

So without further ado, here goes nothing.

I think the hardest thing to do is to breathe

To cry

To let your emotions break free

But it so easy to bury them

To pretend everything is ok

To look as though everything is under control

To hid it under your skin

When all you want do is scream

Hit a wall

Or maybe its this year

Where I release everything

That shatters my mirror

Hurts me worse than bruises

Emotions or overreacting

Like people will say?

I am just overreacting?

Or I losing myself completely?

Who knows anymore?

The fear now is if I will ever return to normal.

If normal is the new thing

Or will have this thing

Digging at me

My whole life

Destroy all the relationships

I hold dearly

Or will it ruin a new relationship

I come across.

Who knows anymore?

Thanks for reading.. maybe next week I will have a more uplifting post.. Maybe?
