Fairytale Acrostics + giveaway

If you haven't been following the Fairytale Fortnight event at Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing and The Book Rat then you really have been missing out on some GREAT stuff. All fans of fairytales and fairytale retellings should be checking these two ladies out. I have read interviews with some of my favorite authors, as well guest posts by fellow bloggers. There are a lot of talented people out there! Plus, there are TONS of giveaways. So really, shame on you for not checking it out. But, alas, don't fret. You can follow the links up there and redeem yourselves.

In celebration of the event I guest posted two acrostics that my class worked on. But wait... there is more. Go check out both blogs to see the awesome (I can't help but brag) giveaways I'm hosting for the event. There is a YA pack and a children's pack.

Here is the first poem:

Forgotten by her stepmother
And evil stepsisters
Impossible, never ending chores
Resigned to be a slave, but
Yearning to be free

Today brings change with
A magical wand
Love at first sight while
Enchanted dancers
Swirl in to the night

Can you see Cinderella in this?? I love the subtlety.
 
Ok, one more....
 
From a window in the tallest tower

Awaiting her long, lost prince--
In a kingdom far away--
Restricted by an evil witch, a
Young princess waits for

True love’s first kiss.
Adventure looming at every corner,
Leading the dashing hero to
Everlasting love and
Stories of happily ever afters.

Ok, I admit that this is probably my favorite. I can't help it. I love Rapunzel almost as much as I adore The Little Mermaid.

Sorry if you already read these on the other blogs. I had all intentions of posting some new ones, but when I sat down to work I discovered that something erased my entire hard drive. =( I don't even have my pictures anymore!

Review: The Search for Delicious

The Search for Delicious Natalie Babbitt
Product Details

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Square Fish (August 21, 2007)
ISBN-10: 9780312369828
Source: My personal book


Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.


Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…

The Winner's Crime ( Marie Rutkoski)

Book two of the dazzling Winner's Trilogy is a fight to the death as Kestrel risks betrayal of country for love.

The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement... if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret.

As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather.
