Blog Event: Spring Blog Carnival

Welcome to Spring Blog Carnival 2013 hosted by Angela from Reading Angel and Candace from Candace’s Book Blog. I am very excited to be a part of this event this year. Last year I participated in all the fun but I wasn't able to join in on the hosting. I hope you enjoy my booth! 

Beautiful Faces and Beautiful Art


First Challenge: There are 6 book covers with beautiful faces. Identify them, each guess is an entry.  All these books can be found under my reviews. 

Second Challenge: Make a doodle... on paper, on your face, on the wall, on a canvas.... anywhere take a picture, post it to your blog, and leave the link in the comments. This is also another entry. 

The prizes.... one beautiful face and one awesome doodle.  Two prizes for two people. 

Alice in Zombieland (The White Rabbit Chronicles, #1)Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter 

My Review: Here


She won’t rest until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real….

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies….

I wish I could go back and do a thousand things differently.
I'd tell my sister no.
I'd never beg my mother to talk to my dad.
I'd zip my lips and swallow those hateful words.
Or, barring all of that, I'd hug my sister, my mom and my dad one last time.
I'd tell them I love them.
I wish... Yeah, I wish.

This Journal Belongs to RatchetThis Journal Belongs To Ratchet by Nancy J. Cavanaugh

My Review: Here


A debut middle grade novel about a girl named Ratchet and her quest to make a friend, save a park, and find her own definition of normal. Ratchet tells her story through the assignments in her homeschool journal.

If only getting a new life were as easy as getting a new notebook.
But it's not.

It's the first day of school for all the kids in the neighborhood. But not for me. I'm homeschooled. That means nothing new. No new book bag, no new clothes, and no friends – old or new. The best I've got is this notebook. I'm supposed to use it for my writing assignments, but my dad never checks. Here's what I'm really going to use it for:

Ratchet's Top Secret Plan
Project Goal: turn my old, recycled, freakish, friendless, motherless life into something shiny and new.

This year, I'm going make something change.
