I am super-pumped! One of my favorite book series is being made into a movie! The Kingdom Series!!!! Ok I've used enough exclamation marks. Anyways, they are making these incredible books in a movie trilogy. It's so awesome! I have yet to find out when they release but oh, I am so going to the cinema to see them. No one can deny me my right! Below is the link to the website:

Well it's about time....

I am so so sorry for the lack of posts in a week! I've just been incredibly lazy lately and at the same time busy with school. I'm just bored so...blah.

Seriously, a cloud has been hanging over my home for a few days. The weather is disgusting(aka warm, I hate warm weather actually) so it doesn't match. Hello! This is supposed to be Fall folks!!!!!!! I want leaves, I want wind, I want Thanksgiving. It's so happifull.

Science, Language Arts, Bible, History and Math....the dreaded subjects of school. I'm finding the grammar highly annoying. Spelling, ok. But NOT GRAMMAR. Like "label this word as a noun" or so so so. Science, well I just started a new pace on oceanography(which I'm sure I didn't spell right), which might be up my alley since I love getting wet. The recent pace was on rocks. Who wants to know about rocks? Anyways, Bible is on the subject of salvation, and how you can have assurance you are saved. And History? It's on the early colonies! My other favorite time period! Like I learned about the fouding of such places as Jamestown. I told my mom, the next time we visit the state of Virginia, I want to go to Jamestown. It would be fun to look at those models of ships.

I need to go shopping again. Why? My family is getting Christmas photos done at a JcPenney's this year, which is like, months from now and you know me, I can't find a thing to wear in them this time. So I begged my mom that I want to go find a Christmasy dress for the photos. We will be going shopping sometime at the local thrift store in town. Did I mention that? I got a really cute skirt there! Here's a pic!

Well it's at least half of it, and me! So isn't it an adorable pattern? It was really cheap so I think I got a good deal.

So...I'm just being a little random. For my life has been naught but boring. That's me. I want adventure...oh wait I'd better stop before I start singing the reprise of "Belle" from "Beauty and the Beast". Speaking of that, it's a movie I'm totally putting on my Christmas wishlist. It's the best film Disney ever made.

Well if I have bored or entertained you with my random babblings, I shall depart now. Oh and speaking of Disney...

I know it's not the reprise but hey, I love this song.

How's the weather up there?

Getting colder each day. I can go ahead and wave goodbye to summer because the chilliness of my favorite season is almost here. How can I tell? It was cold in my room today, I didn't get up early because my bed was too warm and cozy. I'm wearing a long-sleeve shirt right now but believe me I am still barefoot. And momzy thinks I'm crazy.

Been busy this week. The most awful thing happened on Wednesday. No I didn't face a sea monster but I might as well have. It was....a flu shot. My parents were so cruel as to make me get one. They had to literally drag me out the door. Because....well....let me admit that I am still terrified by needles. Ever since my first shot I've been scared. Really scared. But it wasn't as bad as I thought, it only felt like a bee sting. And now I'm not as proned to getting sick anymore. I was still shaking afterwards however, I'm still scared of needles.

Today my family went to a Sam's Club store and got lots of things. And when we first walked inside, you know the row of TV's they've got sitting out? Well they were showing the trailer for the new "Three Musketeers" movie. And guess who is playing the Duke of Buckingham? You may remember him as Legolas or Will Turner. Yes! Orlando Bloom! And since my younger sister likes him, I couldn't resist the moment to tease her. She got mad at me.

So anyways, knowing what a superhero freak my dad is, I was browsing through the movies and found Thor. Of course we bought it, or should I say, my dad bought it. I did see a movie of my favorite, "Beauty and the Beast", I wanted to get that but we didn't, wah. We did get two pizzas however, along with breadsticks and cookies that came with the box. Yum...and I smell pizza cooking in the oven. I'm really hungry now.

I've started a prayer journal. It's sort of something for school my mom made me do but I find it helpful. I've wrote down a few prayer requests already and some praises. I'm hoping that doing this, along with my devotions and Bible reading, it will help me become more devoted to the LORD and be a better Christian.

Mom just said the pizza is done. So I've got to run along now, sorry for the short post.

Return of the Playlist

Yes, very awesome no? Here's the story: So I was feeling really bored with my music so just stupidly logged onto Mixpod and deleted the old playlist on here! After awhile my bloggie got kinda quiet so I decided to create a new playlist. And that I have. It is on my sidebar(it's too clear not to notice right?) and it's on random shuffle. You can scroll through and if you see a song you like, go ahead and play it. I don't mind. It's just a bunch of random-no-nonsense songs on there, Disney if you are obsessed like me, Lord of the Rings and Chronicles of Narnia if you are in the mood to escape to fantasy, Barbie Rapunzel and Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper(love that movie) if you need something pretty and magical to listen to, and if you just want to relax, there is some nice quiet piano music as well.

That's all I wanted to say.

Book Review of "Lady Carliss and the Waters of Moorue"

Lady Carliss is a young knight of the Prince, talented in the skills of both the bow and sword. When another knight, Sir Dalton, falls prey to the deadly poison of the esca lizard, Carliss goes on a quest to find the fabled swamp-lily that will save his life. But at the same time, the people of Moorue are disappearing within the swamp. Will Carliss let Dalton die so that she may be able to save the people? Or will she be able to conquer both quests?

My Review: As far as I can tell, this is by far one of the most exciting books I have ever read. Not very long but great since the main character is a girl who is a knight, which is what I love seeing. The book deals wih how easy it is to escape reality and ignore the fullness of life. There was nothing objectional in this book that I can remember. So I'd recommend for this for ages 11 and up, and for anyone who LOVES a good battle scene in books.

Below are the ratings you are most likely to see during any of my book reviews.

Five Stars: Awesome!
Four Stars: Good, with mildness of action
Three Stars: It was ok...
Two Stars: Blech...
One Star: Had to shut it before I finished.

And I have to say, "Lady Carliss and the Waters of Moorue" deserves 5 golden stars from me!
