Books, Books, the Magical Fruit

Blog Extravaganza Giveaways





Christmas in July
The Christmas Pearl by Dorothea Benton Frank



Theodora is the matriarch of a family that has grown into a bunch of truculent knuckleheads. While she's finally gotten them all together in South Carolina to celebrate, this Christmas looks nothing like the extravagant, homey holidays of her childhood.

What happened to the days when Christmas meant tables groaning with home-cooked goodies, over-the-top decorations, and long chats in front of the fire with Pearl, her grandmother's beloved housekeeper and closest confidante?
Luckily for Theodora, a special someone who heard her plea for help arrives, with pockets full of enough Gullah magic and common sense to make Theodora's Christmas the love-filled miracle it's meant to be.

CSN Stores Giveaway!


About a month ago, a representative from CSN e-mailed me and asked if I'd be interested in giving my readers a chance to win a gift card to their online stores. Of course I said yes!

If you aren't familiar with their products, they sell a little bit of everything, including lights,
vanity tables, and, you guessed it, even bookshelves! I personally love this corner shelf pictured to the left. You'll have a lot to pick from if you are the lucky winner of this giveaway.

Good luck everyone!

Paranormal Five Giveaway! *INTERNATIONAL*

I promised a BIG giveaway right? Here's it is! This is the BIGGEST giveaway that I've ever hosted! What's up for grabs are:

Nightshade - Andrea Cremer (ARC)
Paranormalcy - Kiersten White (ARC)
The Eternal Ones - Kirsten Miller (ARC)
Halo - Alexandra Adornetto (ARC)
Pegasus - Robin McKinley (ARC)

AND

FIVE packs of 5 gum:
Zing (Bubble)

Cobalt (Peppermint)

Flare (Cinnamon)
Lush (Tropical)
Rain (Spearmint)

I received these books for review a few weeks ago and I'm proud to say that every single one of them is AMAZING! I had a few duplicates with these books, so why not give them away? Haha, I'm feeling jealous of the person who'll be winning this, and I'm the one who's giving it away! So come on and join in the fun!!! Haha!

I'd like to thank the publishers who provided these books, especially S @ Penguin! Also, K @ MacMillan, and A @ HarperTeen! Also, thank you so much to my folks for shipping!

Nightshade is a book with many characters but not once will you be confused. Paranormalcy is a very VERY absorbing paranormal read with a great protagonist. The Eternal Ones will really make you believe you've lived in a previous lifetime. Halo, with Christian references, will make you want to be an angel. And Pegasus will introduce you to a world full of wonder and magic. And with these five books, come FIVE packets of 5 Gum! Why? 'Cuz there's one flavor (kind of) to mirror the color of the book...and I LOVE 5 Gum!




AND

Dollywood


YYYYY Dollywood YYYYY
Dollywood…when you think about it you will probably think that’s its all goanna be about Dolly. About her life and all. But that’s where you go wrong. Yeah when you go to Dollywood located near the beautiful smoky mountains in Tennessee you are sure to find some things about dolly at this park but there is more to it. It’s an amusement park filled with lots of fun for any ages. No matter how old you are I can bet you will enjoy it no matter what. At first when my parents told my sis and me that we were going to dollywood I wasn’t sure what to expect. I went to the website to check it out and trust me I was on the website for many hours.
We were trying to decide which rollercoaster we are going to ride first. Yes you read it right rollercoaster. They have one of the fastest rollercoaster in the world. When we reached there first thing we did was grab a map..hey we needed to know where Thunderhead was located. Yup the epic day began for us with Thunderhead. Thunderhead, a wooden rollercoaster, 55mph with a 100 feet fall. I really didn’t expect that…when the ride began I was excited….but when the fall came oh men it was epic….yeah I have driven at 55mph before….but not a fall of 100 feet at that speed…it was amazing….the thrill the excitement the air the screaming and laughing and being scared all this cant be explained in words…you have to experience it yourself to know..but it was epic..Amazing…spectacular…and I can go on and on about it..lol
Anyways moving on….next up in like was mystery mine…oh trust me these names say it all….Mystery + Mine = epicenes… its very mysteries because you are in a mine and you don’t even know what’s coming your way next… it’s a high speed, extreme vertical and I mean vertical literally as of one was not enough, you have to experience that 2 time….looping roller coaster…I don’t even remember how many loops there where…I was praying good plz don’t let me fall……after each vertical lift there was 5 feet fall on a very fast speed…..let the rest be a mystery for all those plp who want to go and try….i really don’t want to spoil mystery of the mine..
There where many ride that we went on but I am only going to tell you guys abt few that I loved….next in line is Tennessee tornado…a 70 mph triple loop steel roller coaster……..rest you can imagine your self…after I came out of the ride..my head was spinning for few second but the time I was on the ride all I did was scream my lungs out and enjoy with my fellow riders….though it was very short of length…
Next up…. Daredevil fall….water ride. you will get wet…..awsome fall…it’s a super flume water ride with a 60 ft, 50 mph drop…imagine you being there….its just amazing…and yeah I surely got wet all drenched 2 time..Obvisouly because I couldn’t stop myself from riding on it again and again…
Last but not least….hey I don’t want you readers to be bored you know…anyways ….next up is dizzy disk…..you surely will get dizzy lol….its a high speed rotating and spinning ride…its amazing….its hard to explain but its just mind-blowing…I really thought I would be blown away it’s so fast but I was well settle….
Good thing about this park is that security is good…there are no chances of you getting hurt if you just follow the rules…we just had to pay entry fee…at first you might think maybe its too much but trust me the money you pay to get in is worth it…. because everything else is free well expect sky zip..i didn’t go on it since I m scared of highest but yeah rest is all free no restriction on how many rides you wana go on and how many time…
We started our day with the best of the best THUNDERHEAD so common we had to end it with the best of the best right….yeah that’s what we did…we ended the time in the park with another ride on the epic THUNDERHEAD. Even though we knew what to expect on the ride this time it didn’t really lower our excitement…we enjoyed the ride with more excitement and with the same screaming our lung out at the 100 feet fall…oh there was also a FRIENDSHIP FOUNTAIN….will tell you guys abt it later…..trust me the day at dollywood was one of the best day I had so far…



Smoky Mountains

Always wonder how did smoky mountain looked like. Well obviously it will look like any other mountain. But there had to be something different right. Well finally got the chance to see the smoky mountains this summer. Went out with my family and friends… my first impression: “scary”…. well I m scared of height so yeah it will be scary….but than….my true impression of it “wow beautiful…wonder how it will look in fall…when there is changes in the color of the leaf”. Driving toward the top of the mountain, didn’t fail to observe the surroundings…wondering would I be able to see any bear or any mountain lion..Hey plp do wonder don’t you think…what really caught my eye was the stream or was it a creak …well whatever it was I sure did caught my eyes…the water was flowing slowly next to me. I really wanted to stop the car and go put my feet in the cold water. Well I am not sure if the water was cold or not but I m guessing it was cold…truly the place looked very peacefully which is exactly y I wanted to stop and just sit there for a while…wonder. Think…enjoy the moment while it lasted…all those flowers along the roadside where just beautiful….

I rolled down the window and let the wind blow right at my face……I love it when there is a gush of wind right on my face….noise of the creak. and the birds creeping…made it so relaxing…peaceful….was not afraid of the height no more…maybe because I was just busy taking pictures of the place that I pass by in my memory and camera off course….. I just wanted to look around and enjoy the moment…. there where some tunnels along the way….and what’s really funny is Whenever a car passes by the driver would honk…well I think it was because the road where steep and curvy so they wanted to let other driver know that there were cars coming along….but mostly I think they just liked the sound of the honk echo in the tunnel…it was rather funny to me all these car honking for no reason. like taking there desire of honking out in those tunnels without getting in trouble…

Finally we reached the top….where we could actually see the mountain and the road below us…than I realized how high we were at that point…also one more thing that I realized that the point where I was standing I was actually at two places at once…..”Tn and NC border line”…..the first thing that came to my mind was oh its like A Walk to remember…yeah the movie…remember how amy wanted to be in two places at ones yeah just like that….it was just great…..did take lots of pic….will surely put some of it……I enjoyed my trip to smoky…its hard to put the feeling the experiences in word..but only I know what I mean by peaceful…some time all u want to do is drive along the road don’t stop let the wind touch ur face gently and just keep enjoying the time while it last…that’s how it was for me…….
