It’s Friday

Which would normally imply that I would be posting the Pinterest Favourites Friday Post, but…well, I just don’t quite feel like it. I have some splendid pins (no, really I do. XD I like ’em! XD), but they are quite comfy on my Pinterest page for now. They told me so themselves. Though this one did happen to volunteer itself up for a blog spotlight:

 

Oh my goodness, I literally laughed so hard at this!! "I can't go back to  jail again!!"

 

Which of course reminds me of this quote: “I can’t go back to jail again!” from Monsters University.

Okay, I’m going to burst into a little bit of randomness here (wait, silly, I already have! Well, here is some more). There is this book (*que romantic sighs*), and I am very excited about it. The book is:

Strong and adventurous Gwendolyn Barnes longs to be a knight like her chivalrous brothers. However, that is not an option for her, not even in the Arthurian-inspired Eden where she dwells. Her parents view her only as a marriage pawn, and her domineering father is determined to see her wed to a brutish man who will break her spirit.

When handsome, good-hearted Allen of Ellsworth arrives in Edendale searching for his place in the world, Gwendolyn spies in him the sort of fellow she could imagine marrying. Yet fate seems determined to keep them apart. Tournaments, intrigue, and battles–along with twists and turns aplenty–await these two as they struggle to find love, identity, and their true destinies.

Available for pre-order online now!

This isn’t the first, nor the last time, this book has been mentioned on my blog here. So. But it’s just so beautiful, and I love stories about knights and ladies and lady knights! :D It is sure to have a lot of great adventures. If you would like to find out more about the author, Dina Sleiman, and get a little peak at her characters, I encourage you to check out the post linked in the below image. Just click on it, and it will lead you right to her post!

 

 

And prepare yourself for more posts about “Chivalrous” because there *will* be more. And soon! :D

Pinterest Favourites Friday Week 20

Good day to you, readers! I am finally getting around to doing another Pinterest Favourites post. So, let’s just dig in. :)

 

I love this for so many reasons!.

I love this a lot. It’s so cool, and also resembles how we live our lives as followers of God – we are Warriors of Jesus!

 

Yayayay! We are...Dragonites! HTTYD fans #dragonitesunite

Found out recently, that we HTTYD lovers now have a proper name for ourselves – Dragonites! How epic is that?

 

Without love, we are nothing.

Love covers all. Truly. I’m learning a lot about this, and it’s haaaaarrddd, but so worthwhile as we want to shine as our Savior does!  1 Cor. 16:14 “Let all that you do be done with love.” 

 

'Today Me will live in the Moment, unless it is Unpleasant, in which case I will eat a Cookie', Cookie Monster Quote.  Hehehe! Sounds good Cookie Monster!

I like Cookie Monster’s reasoning very much.

 

Haha yep!

This is the truth. XD

 

The Sand Cat - my new favourite  cat. I need one one. Now.

A Sand Cat. Which I obviously need quite desperately!! :D

For more pins, you can visit me on my Pinterest board Here. :)

 

What I’m reading:

GIVEAWAY! The Pharaoh's Daughter by Mesu Andrews, giveaway ends 6/30/15.

 

It’s taken me a bit, but I am finally able to read this beautiful book, and with joy too! :)

What are you reading, and pinning (if you have Pinterest)? :)

Pinterest Favourites Friday Week 19

Hello! I am finally back with a Pinterest Friday. It feels like it’s been a while. :) So shall we see the pins? =D

 

Mug ... how to train your dragon, dragon, toothless, night fury, mug I NEED this!!!

I seriously need this cup. I mean, how amazing is that?!?! I love it :D

 

Disney's Tarzan and Jane.. such a good movie!

Because I love Tarzan and Jane, and my sister and I recently watched “Tarzan”. :)

I don’t often pin Gif’s (“But when I do…” Yes I’ve been on Pinterest too long!) but it’s HTTYD and it’s funny. Plus I’ve seen this episode of the show. (Yes again – there are HTTYD shows, not just movies!)

 

Funniest Minion Quotes Of The Week

Hehe. XD

 

Verity Poldark  from Poldark, actress Ruby Bentall - she is so sweet!

Because Verity from Poldark is such a sweet character. I really am hoping she gets a happy ending!!! <3

 

mission

Very true.

 

What I’m reading:

I just recently finished beta-reading a friend’s book, and have now begun this book:

Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin

Beautiful cover, beautiful story. I love the main character, Mary, especially. Even though I’m only a couple chapters in. :)

 

So, what are you reading/pinning?

Pinterest Favourites Friday week 18

Hello and happy Friday to ye! :)

I am working on a couple posts for hopefully next week – a couple book reviews, hopefully an update, one just never knows. =D But for today, I have pins to share! So, enjoy!

 

Yep, HTTYD. Looooove it. :)

 

Beautiful old letters. Have I ever mentioned how much I love letters? :)

 

19th Century Sailing Photos | Sailor Mouth Saturday: Duck

A pretty image of a pretty ship. :)

 

Isn’t this a cute necklace? I love it. =)

 

LOVE this quote

And last, but not least, a favourite quote of mine. :)

 

For some reason, I haven’t been pinning a ton of things on Pinterest…I guess Summer is too busy for that, unfortunately. ;) I’ve also been busy elsewhere online…have you read Jaye L. Knight’s books? I’ve read the first and then the prequel type one, and was absolutely amazed. My review of “Resistance” is one of the things I’m hoping to post come next week. But yes, so the lovely author, Jaye L. Knight has created a forum for her books and that has been tremendous fun. =)

What am I reading now? Well, I’m stilling reading this:

 

The Good, the Bad, and the Grace of God: What Honesty and Pain Taught Us About Faith, Family, and Forgiveness -by Jep Robertson, Jessica Robertson, Susy Flory but I am SO close to being done with it. It is very good, and I’ll have my review soon. :)

I’m also reading this:

A Bride at Last by Melissa Jagears http://smile.amazon.com/dp/0764211706/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_LfIwub1QZ5WR0 Which is also good, and maybe in a couple weeks I’ll have my review of it (I only just started reading the book, but should finish it next week sometime…we’ll see!)

 

So, that’s enough for now, methinks. How have you been, readers? :)

Pinterest Favourites Friday Week 17

Hello!

Pardon my lack of posts between Friday Pinterest Posts…I’ll try to remedy that at some point. ;) Coming this next week, I will be participating/hosting a blog tour for my kindred spirit and her newly published book, so please do check back on Sunday! But for now, enjoy these pins:

 

Once upon a Time

I just thought this was beautiful. :) As an author, “once upon a time” holds such endearment and possibility!

 

S’more’s anyone? XD

 

Haha - need this on a shirt!

This is just too funny!

 

.

“When people interrupt me when I’m reading a book: ‘Why can’t you understand that I’m just happy being alone?'” – I get this and relate! XD

 

What I am reading:

 

Author Interview and Giveaway: RESISTANCE by Jaye L. Knight  #Giveaway #Fantasy #NewRelease     The Good, the Bad, and the Grace of God: What Honesty and Pain Taught Us About Faith, Family, and Forgiveness -by Jep Robertson, Jessica Robertson, Susy Flory

Both are very good so far. :)

Pinterest Favourites Friday Week 16

Happy Friday Folkes! :D
How has your week been? Good, I hope. I personally enjoyed the cooler weather over last weekend and early week. =) It also made gardening easier.
So, this weeks pins are as follows:

 

beautiful crown/tiara!

Beautiful isn’t it? I love tiaras/crowns.

Pink and white bridal designer lehenga. Indian Fashion and Clothing.

Some beautiful Indian Fashion. It says it is a bridal outfit, and you can see why – lovely!

Hahaha...

I love this – quite funny!

Gorgeous!!!

This bag is amazing, isn’t it? I would love to own it!

beautiful mask!!!

Another gorgeous masquerade mask!

I’m currently reading:

033

It’s not a great picture of me, but it shows off the book! I was sooo pleased to win one of the copies of “Brothers-in-Arms” on Jack’s blog. You might remember that I entered THIS short story for the give-away/contest. The book is amazing, trust me! Franz and Japhet…their friendship is amazing. It’s very emotionally investing though… XD

So with that I shall depart! Comment and tell me what you’re reading/pinning/etc.! Have a good weekend. :)

Just a Short Update

Hello!

I am aware that it is Friday, and I would normally be posting the ‘Pinterest Favourites’, but I wasn’t able to put together such a post this time. I may change the frequency in which I post Friday-Pinterest posts; perhaps to every-other Friday. With summer here, it isn’t quite as easy to find the time to schedule a ton of posts for me. :)

But I thought I would update quick and say that my newest nephew finally joined us last Sunday!! Well, I didn’t meet him till the following day, but oh my word, is he precious!

And actually, with that piece of news, I shall leave you. =) Tomorrow I have a book review of a lovely tale, so be on the look out for that!

hahaha, laughed out loud for this! XD Plus, if the world goes bad, and there's no food, we'll be the safe ones ;)

(Hahaha, okay, so I couldn’t help leaving with one funny pin…. XD)

Pinterest Favourites Friday Week 15

Hello!

Another Friday, another post! I thought I was going to have to miss this one, because I have been rather ‘down and out’ recently because of some severe back pain, but praise the Lord it is slowly slowly slowly getting better! At least enough so that I can do this post. :) So I think I’m just going to jump right in:

 

I just really love this. ^.^

 

Hehehe!.

Made Mum and I laugh. Yes, we love nutella!

 

I Just Wanna Have Abs...olutely All The Nutella

One more Nutella pin… :D I just wanna have ABS…olutely all the Nutella.

 

XD ” When I’m out with my mom and see HTTYD merchandise: MOM: What are you doing?  ME: Can I please has?!”

Hehe, love this. And you know, couldn’t have a week without pinning something HTTYD! It’s nearly impossible!

 

Metallic Blue And Black Lace Masquerade Mask    Blue by SOFFITTA

And a masquerade mask! I love these things.

 

I recently finished reading “A Dream Not Imagined” by Shantelle Mary Hannu, which you will all get to hear about again soon when I post my review. :) I am currently reading “Meant to Be Mine” by Becky Wade. :)

What are you pinning and reading this week? :)

Pinterest Favourites Friday Week 14

Good tidings to ye!

Shall we begin right off with the pins?

 

Perfect!!! It's pretty AND it will keep my pretty-much-destroyed fountain feather pen safe from our cat :D

Isn’t this beautiful? I think it is quite fetching, and I would really like it, because it would keep my feather dip pen safe from our cat who likes to destroy it…

 

cute!

I thought this was adorable! I might have to do this in my own home one day. :)

 

I have no idea how this would be done, but it is cool. HTTYD. :)

 

Hiccup Horendous Haddock the Third

And why not another pic of something HTTYD related? Hiccup of course. :)

 

Hiccup, Stoick, and Valka. The Haddock Family *sniff* and *tears*

This makes me sad. If you’ve seen the movie, (How to Train Your Dragon 2) you know why.

 

You are worth it.

And to end on a serious note…How true and amazing is this? Beautiful.

 

I’ve been reading plenty. I finished “The Choosing” by Rachelle Dekker which I will be reviewing on the 27th.

The Choosing - Rachelle Dekker, https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23627067-the-choosing?ac=1

 

And now I am reading “Five Glass Slippers” by the various authors.

Five Glass Slippers: A Collection of Cinderella Stories

 

And as a bonus to finish off this post, here is some info on a free book you can get soon:

Do you like free books? "A Mighty Fortress" will be free May 18-22, 2015. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GPDQVC2 Free May 18th-22nd 2015

And with that, I wish you a good Weekend!

Pinterest Favourites Friday Week Thirteen

Happy May First! This post is scheduled so it hasn’t happened yet, but we’re hoping that ‘today’ – May First – will bring my newest baby nephew! =) All in God’s timing of course.

And also, I would like to wish my Kindred Spirit, Kenzie a VERY Happy Birthday!!! I hope you have a fantastic day my dear sister in Christ!! <3 Here’s a pin just for you:

I wish I could be there celebrating with you. =)

 

And now back to our normal programming… ;) Here are some other pins I enjoyed this week:

Just thought this was hysterical. And you can’t go wrong with minions :D

Thought this was kinda neat.

 

The 50 Most Shared Facebook Posts Of 2014

And why not end with another funny minion pin? =)

 

What I’m reading:

 

The cover is GORGEOUS!! And I’m sure the story within will be so as well! Only 7 chapters in and it is positively delightful!

I finished reading this also a couple of days ago:

 

It was a good one-time read. I enjoyed it.

And I thought I’d leave you with one final thing: a cute video! Have a lovely day, comment if you want to (I always love to hear from you!), and just be blessed =)
