Apple White’s Fainting Couch

I love the Ever After High doll line, and was so excited to learn that one of my favorite characters in that line was getting a play set. My parents got me that set, Apple White’s Fainting Couch, as a gift last weekend, and I’ve been using it everyday since then:) It’s very cute and fun to photograph, and I even wrote up a guest review for one of my favorite blogs. You can expect some photos soon!

A World Without Princes Book Trailer

I’ve talked about my School For Good and Evil obsession so many times before, (you can read more about it here, here, and here) but the book trailer for the sequel, A World Without Princes, was recently released, so I couldn’t help but feature it again! The graphics are so cool and it got me super excited for the book–only 15 more days until it comes out:)

Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt

I’m a bit obsessed with Pinkberry frozen yogurt and its delicious flavors and toppings, so when I found out that an Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt shop was opening in my town, I wasn’t sure if I would like it as much. I went a couple of weeks ago, got the cookies and cream flavor, and ended up loving it! I’ll definitely be going again soon…

The Muppets Most Wanted

Oh, I can’t wait to see The Muppets Most Wanted! I’m going with friends to see it next weekend, and I’m so excited to hear more cheery songs and funny jokes! It just feels impossible not to be happy when watching a Muppet movie:)

Book Covers

Jessica Day George’s New Book Covers

Jessica Day George is one of my favorite authors, and after the suspenseful cliffhanger in the end of her last book, Wednesdays In The Tower, I’ve been eagerly waiting to find out what will happen to Princess Celie and my other favorite characters. The cover of the next book in that series was released a few days ago, along with the redone covers of her other trilogy, Dragon Slippers. Aren’t they amazing?

Have an awesome week!

5 Books I’m So Thankful For That I Really Think You Should Read (B.I.R.T.Y.S.R Volume 11)

Hi!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! While I write this post, I’m watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade to celebrate, but I couldn’t wait to publish it because it’s all about Books I’m So Thankful For-which also means I get to write all about my favorite books!

The School For Good And Evil by Soman Chainani

This (in my opinion) is the most awesome book ever. It’s my all time favorite! It’s about two girls that are taken to the magical Schools for Good and Evil, but an unexpected switch leads them onto a dangerous adventure…that I might have read about three times….

The Princess of The Silver Woods by Jessica Day George

Oh…Princess of The Silver Woods….how do I describe how amazing you are? Well, let’s just say that I’ve read this book three times too:) But, really, pick up any book by Jessica Day George, and I assure you, you’ll be hooked!

Once Upon A Curse (My favorite in the Frog Princess series,) by E.D. Baker

I love this book! All of E.D. Baker’s books are some of my favorites, (which made it impossible to choose just one for this post), but I’ve always thought Once Upon A Curse was the best one of all:)

Princess AcademyPrincess Academy by Shannon Hale

This book is just amazing! Not only does it have a unique setting and a wonderful main character, it’s written by one of my favorite authors, and it’s a fantasy book, (I just noticed that every book on here is fantasy:)) Anyways, this book is super good!

House of HadesThe House Of Hades by Rick Riordan

I loved reading all of the Percy Jackson and Heroes Of Olympus books, but I decided to feature The House Of Hades because I read it last month, and because it was one of my favorites out of all of the books, oh and because if you read the Percy Jackson books, I know that you were probably waiting and waiting for this book to come out, just like me!

Have a great Thanksgiving,

Lulu:)

The School For Good and Evil and Pi in the Sky-2 Reviews in One

3 Jul

Sorry for not posting recently, but today I have an extra awesome post with two reviews of these new books which I LOVED! So….

The School For Good and EvilThe School For Good and Evil by Soman Chainani

Summary: In the small town of Gavaldon, which is completely surrounded by woods, a strange thing takes place every four years. Two children from the village, one good and one evil are taken by a mysterious shadow in the night are taken into the forest, and aren’t seen again until they show up in the town children’s storybooks as either the hero or villain. The children are taken to the School for Good and Evil. When other children are terrified of being taken, Sophie has longed for it her whole life. She longed to be a princess, and so she’s sure she’ll be taken for the Good School and her best friend Agatha, who lives in a graveyard and wears shapeless black dresses and doesn’t believe in any of this fairy tale nonsense will be taken for the School of Evil. Soon, Sophie’s wishes come true, and the two girls are taken, but instead of being placed into the elegant good school, Sophie finds herself thrown into the darkness of the evil one, while Agatha gets to live Sophie’s dream of becoming a fairy tale heroine…

My Thoughts: I think I finally found a book that is as good as any of the E.D. Baker and Jessica Day George stories, (and we all know how highly I rank those on my Super Awesome Stuff list!) I mean really, it. is. that. good. I even read it, (all 488 pages) in only 2 days! And if you need even more proof about how amazing the book is, I’m going to probably read it another 2 or 3 times before the summer is over:) Oh! I have one more awesome thing about this book to tell you before I start to talk about the character and writing, etc. It’s apparently going to be made into a movie, (which shows how awesome this book is because it only came out on May 14!) and it’s going to be a trilogy!!!!!!! Okay, I think I finally got all my super happy chatter out-of-the-way so I’ll go on with my usual book review, umm…what do you call that?…we’ll just say order. Alright, the writing in this book makes you feel like your there with the characters and get sucked into the story after you read the first page. There’s lots of description and the plot is a very fun take on classic fairy tales, plus there’s so much suspense and surprises (can you believe that ending? I must know what happens!!!!) that keep you wanting to read more. Although the book can be very dramatic and full of excitement there’s still lots of funny moments. The characters in this book were very distinctive and interesting. Sophie was very funny, (and a little crazy!) but she was still very unlikable but for some weird reason I wanted to keep reading about her. I’m glad she stopped being a crazy, evil,   person in the end, and it was so unexpected when she…well….I won’t spoil the end for you. Anyways, Agatha was much more likable and turned out to be the much nicer one, (she gave Sophie so many second chances) and she was a very intriguing character till the very end of the story. Tedros wasn’t my favorite character, but he wasn’t bad. I just think that he wasn’t very good at making his decisions, but at the end like the other characters he saw how he’d been wrong. The supporting characters all had different personalities, and brought lots of humor to the book. Beatrix and the other Good School students were very funny because of how obsessed they were with their looks and other silly things. Dot was very fun, and sweet, and it makes you feel really bad for her when she was kicked out of her room:( Overall, this was a super awesome book that I give five out of five stars!

Pi in the Sky by Wendy Mass

Summary: In what we just think is dark matter, there lives a whole community of immortals called The Realms, where Joss is the seventh son of the Supreme Overlord of the Universe. Now this may sound fun and exciting, but it’s not, because all Joss gets to do is deliver pies. Now, Joss’s life seems pretty boring, all he does is go to school, deliver pies, and hang out with his best friend Kal, until the day someone on Earth sees the Realms in a telescope. Now the entire solar system has been pulled out of time, with Kal’s parents studying on Earth. So now Kal, and his parents have simply disappeared, and in their place comes a strange girl named Annika, who happens to be the last human there is. Along with her help, Joss must recreate the whole solar system in order to get Kal ad his parents back and Annika and the rest of the humans back on Earth.

My Thoughts: I enjoy all of Wendy Mass’s books and have been waiting to read this one ever since I saw the cool cover. The plot of the story is very interesting, and I thought that the fact that the author had the story take place inside of dark matter, and how she had quotes at the beginning of each chapter made it even better. The great writing is backed up with a fun plot and science facts, plus likable characters. Joss was a refreshing main character, and he was very believable, (well as much as a fictional immortal being can be) and likable. He was very entertaining, and really helped the story move along. Annika was so bold and funny. I don’t really know what else to say about her, except that she was my favorite character in the book. I liked to read about Joss’s brothers’ different jobs, and how each brother was featured at one point in the story. Kal wasn’t a very memorable character, (most likely because he was absent for a lot of the book,) but he still caused a lot of confusing things to happen though. Overall, this book was a great read that I also give five out of five stars.

Have you read any interesting books lately?
