Happy One Month Anniversary!

Hello fans! Today is my one month anniversary since I started this blog! Yay! It might not be as big as those who had their one year anniversary (congrats btw!) but I wanted to celebrate this little milestone.

I thought I would do a couple of fun things in this post. First, I’m going to start with a few tags I have to catch up on (yes I’m using this post as a post to catch up on with my tags) and then a fun surprise at the end! ‘Cause today’s a day to celebrate!

Peer Pressure Tag

The Rules
  1. Link back to the creator. ( bluemallowmelt )
  2. Provide a link to the person who tagged you. Thank you so much That One Crazy Girl from Random Thoughts of my Fandoms for showing me this tag and thanks to Akriti from Recipe of Life for tagging me!
  3. Answer all questions honestly. No lying!
  4. Come up with 5 questions of your own. (4 have to be about peer pressure; 1 can be random and about whatever)
  5. Tag at least 10 people and provide links to their blogs.
  6. Recommend at least 5 books or songs you see everywhere/are very popular that you’ve read or listened to.
  7. Use the hashtag #peer pressure tag for easier visibility.
  • Tell us any one incident of peer pressure that happened in your school?

The rules said to answer truthfully, and honestly? I don’t know. XD I wish I could provide more of an answer to this question, but I cannot.

  • What is the most forceful thing you have ever done?

Umm, probably getting up in the front of the class. You know, when your teachers make you and you really want to pretend to be sick that day? And when you do get up and your hands are shaking like crazy, so crazy that you can’t see the paper? Yep that’s the most forceful thing I have done.

  • What is your hobby? Has anyone influenced it?

My main hobby is writing and reading, and no, no one’s influenced it but I do have a side hobby that my friends have influenced. I love to dance, but I thought that I wasn’t really that good and I kinda kept that hobby to myself. But once I showed my friends, they helped encourage me to pursue that dream. So now I hope I can take dancing lessons.

  • Have you ever pressured someone to do something that might land them in trouble? If yes, tell us in detail.

Ehh- I’ve pressured my friends to do weird, funny, and troublesome stuff, but none of them have actually landed as far as “trouble.” But believe me, some have gotten close!

  • What is your 2021 goal?

My goal is to not care what others think about me. I’ve been really trying hard to work on that. (At least, I’m getting somewhere, lol.)

My Questions:

Have you ever done something that your friends have pressured you to do?

Have you ever rode a ride at a theme park because someone wanted you to?

Have you ever refused someone during a game of truth or dare?

Do you think your friends would help stand up for you if you didn’t want to do something?

Do you like rain? (Random question)

I recommend:

The False Prince Series

The Traitors Game Series

Keepers of the Lost Cities

Divergent

To Kill a MockingBird

Alrighy, on to the surprise! My surprise is:

Truth or Dare! Next time, I will be doing a truth or dare post and I want you guys to either dare me do to something or have me tell a truth. It could be you daring me to read a book, watch a certain movie, share a peek from one of my stories, or just a random thing! Though, I ask with your dares, not too intense please! And truths could be maybe my opinion on a book or secrets to my writings. Next time, I will update you on how these dares and truths went…

Also, I guess I’m really in a happy mood for you guys today because I’m going to give you a snippet of one of my stories. This is the story that involves the character Bentley, so if you don’t know her yet you can check her out here. (Me just realizing there are a lot of links in this post…)

Here’s the snippet from the middle of the book.

“Bentley now had a distaste for being unconscious. She had gone unconscious two times a day and hoped not to break her record. When she came to, she didn’t want to open her eyes. Even though she hated being unconscious, this time she had a dream. She was back in Yellowstone with her mother. And for some reason, the boy, the figure, was with them too.

Bentley kept her eyes closed and tried to feel where she was. She was in something moving, a car, or maybe the ambulance taking her to safety. She sat upright which was a little concerning since in if she was in an ambulance she should’ve been on a stretcher. Bentley finally decided to open her eyes, though she wished she hadn’t. It seemed like she was in some sort of delivery truck, that weirdly, had four seats on her side and four seats across from her.

Chichi, Brandon, and a girl sat across from Bentley, unconscious and strapped in. Bentley’s heart took a leap. Were they being kidnapped? Another boy sat on the very edge seat, but he was awake and not strapped in.

Did he figure out how to escape his binds?

It was then Bentley realized she was strapped in and that Oscar, a kid from school sat on one side of her, and on the other side of her, sat another girl she didn’t recognize. The fourth seat to the girl’s left sat empty. Up front to Bentley’s left was a divider with a small window. Bentley sat far from it, but could still see through it. There were two men in the front seats, driving this van, talking quietly to themselves. 

Bentley turned back her attention in front of her. The boy who was not unconscious was watching her. He wore a black hoodie, black pants and had dark brown hair, almost as dark as to match his outfit. He sat there folding his arms, relaxed, but on edge, confident, but hesitant. That hesitant feeling felt familiar….

Bentley’s eyes wandered up to his eyes. She froze, realizing who this was.

He must’ve seen her sudden worry because he laughed.

“You’re…you’re….” Bentley couldn’t quite find the words she needed to say.

“Yes,” he said with a slight movement upward with his head, “That’s me.”

A thousand questions filled Bentley’s mind. Where were they? Where were they going? Did her mother know where she was?

“I’m sorry I had to knock you all unconscious. It just made it easier to get you into here.” 

“Where are we?” Bentley cleared her throat. “Let me rephrase that: where are we going?”

The boy hesitated. “I wish I could tell you but I can’t. But I can tell you that we are going somewhere for your own safety.”

“You kidnapped us? I was safe where I was!” Bentley felt anger roll through her in waves. She was being taken to be safe? She had to leave behind her mom. What would her mom say when she found Bentley wasn’t at home? 

Her sculptures. What…what about her sculptures? The anger inside her quickly melting into sadness. Her beautiful sculptures. All left behind. Bentley would never see them again.

“I know you think-” the boy cautiously tried to explain but he was drowned out when Bentley felt a ringing in her ears. Then the pain came back, even more, intense than the last time.

Did that mean something? 

The burning in her heart grew and she cried out. Again? Why again? She wanted to push her hands again her ribcage, but couldn’t since she was strapped in. Bentley titled her face down and squeezed her eyes shut, hoping some sort of pressure would stop this feeling and hoping that the tears that were forming couldn’t get out. She gritted her teeth so hard she was afraid that they would shatter. The boy stood up in the van yelling for help from the two men upfront.

Just stop the pain.

And Bentley blacked out.”

And that’s my book! Hope you liked it! Also hoped you enjoyed this post. I will see ya’ll next time with that truth or dare post (shudders). Byeeee!

Meet My MC-A Writer’s Linkup

Hola fans! I’m back again with a fun post I’d thought I would try. I wanted y’all to meet my main character from one of my books!

This writer’s linkup is hosted by Maya Joelle! When I first saw this linkup, I was mind blown and super happy. You can find details about the linkup on her post here. The linkup runs from January 1-30. Hope you will join it!

Without further ado, let’s jump in!

1 // Introduce your MC. What’s their name? Age? Appearance? (Sharing collages/inspiration photos encouraged!)

Alrighty, my MC (Main Character) is from one of my side stories. By side stories, I mean a story that isn’t my main story I’m working on now, but one off to the side. I don’t even have a name for it right now.

My main character’s name is Bentley. She is around 15 years old and is on the more shy personality side. But, by the end of my book, she might be the most outgoing one.

Bentley has long brown hair she puts into a half-up hairdo, brown eyes, and a shy smile. She’s about medium height which makes it easier to get trampled at school. XD

2 // Explain how your MC fits into the plot of your book (as best you can without spoiling it all…)

Bentley started out as a girl in school that tried her best not to be the center of attention. She did get bullied at her school, but she wasn’t strong enough to fight back. She hadn’t found her place yet. Bentley gets kidnapped and realizes that she and her friends are the ones who have to work undercover to help save the government of their country. Bentley fits into the plot because she is the one who has to lead the missions and overcome her fears.

3 // What’s the first thing your MC says in the story? The last? A random quote from the middle that you like?

I don’t have the book all the way to the end yet, lol, but I am about 1/4 through. I’ll give you the first thing she says, and a quote somewhere in the middle of words that I have written.

 “‘Excuse me.’ she squeaked to everyone.”

Not a very interesting first thing to say, but that is what she says! And here’s a quote somewhere in the middle.

“Bentley now had a distaste for being unconscious. She had gone unconscious two times today and hoped not to break her record. When she came to, she didn’t want to open her eyes. Even though she hated being unconscious, this time she had a dream. She was back in Yellowstone with her mother. And for some reason, the boy, the figure, was with them too.”

4 // Which other character would die for your MC?

This question made me think deep! One of my characters, Silas, would die for Bentley. He would do anything for her safety, but it takes him a while to realize that.

5 // Would your MC die for them?

Yes, Bentley would. It would take a couple of hesitations but in the end, she would die for others.

6 // Have any major details about your MC changed since you first created them?

YES! I started writing this story about a year ago, forgot about it, and just started again recently. I’ve had to make a couple of changes to Bentley. 😉

7 // What characters (from books/movies not by you) remind you of your MC? Why?

Hmm, not really any . I mean, Silas kinda reminds me of Fitz’s personality from KOTLC but Bentley doesn’t remind me of anyone.

8 // Share your MC’s favorites!
[ color, food, type of clothing, place, type of music, season, smell, etc. ]

Oooh! I love favorite lists! Here’s Bentley’s list:

Color: Red

Food: Caesar salad

Type of Clothing: A plain shirt that could get messy when she sculpts

Place: Anywhere with her loved ones

Type of Music: classical/relaxation

Hobby: Sculpting

Subject: English

Favorite Time of Day: Night

9 // If your MC wasn’t involved in your story, what would they be doing? (Basically: what’s their dream life? Where do they want to live, what do they want to do?)

Bentley has a couple of things that she’d want to be in her dream life. First, she would want to have her mom home more instead of her working all day and late into the night at her job as a nurse. Bentley would also love to sculpt as her career.

10 // Share a fun extra (another collage, a playlist, a scene from the story, a drawing, etc.).

Here’s a small collage based on my book!

Thank you guys for tapping in for today’s post! I hope you had as much fun as I did when I created this post. Also if you have not guessed to win yet on Memes, Quotes, Pics, go and do that because the next game show episode is coming soon!

See you all fans later!

The False Prince Tag

Update: I just got tagged for the first time!! And the tag is a False Prince Tag which is a book that I absolutely adore! So this is a double fun tag! During this post I will make sure to tell you if there are spoilers. 😉 Anyway, I can not wait so let’s get on with this tag!


Here are the rules from Issabelle:

#1. Link back to the post of the person who tagged you.

Thank you so much Issabelle from Teen Writers Nook for tagging me! If you don’t know her and her team (Katherine and Alana) at Teen Writers Nook already, you should go check them out! I’m always looking forward to their posts and if you go to their blog, they will make sure you feel at home. Pop in over there and say hi!

#2. Link back to the creator’s post.

Issabelle also started this tag which is AMAZING, so go and stay at her and her team’s blog for awhile!

#3. Answer the five questions (obsessive fangirling is optional).

*Laughs* You can count on me obsessive fangirling because, you know, this is a fangirl blog…. so plan on that. 🙂

Optional rule: Tag 3+ other bloggers. This step is ABSOLUTELY optional!!!!!!!!!


Onto the questions!

#1. What’s your favorite book in the series?

Haha, you expect me to pick one? Honestly this question might be very hard for me. I guess I can’t pick The Captive Kingdom because I haven’t read it…yet! I’m in the line for the library holds and I’m so close to finally getting it after waiting 2 months. So my favorite book in the series that I have read so far is The Runaway King. But that might change with the upcoming books.

#2. Between Sage, Tobias, and Roden who do you relate to the most?

*Buries face into hands* These are deep questions! I want to relate to Sage the most, but if I answer truthfully, I don’t even come close to the person he is. He is absolutely the most well developed character I have ever come across and he has the sort of sassy personality that makes you want to stick with him through his books.

Roden. Hmm, Roden. He’s a great, loyal, stubborn character, but I don’t think I relate to him the most.

So that leaves Tobias. He’s highly smart, compassionate, brave, but the most timid out of the three boys, (not saying he is very timid, but just out of the boys he would be the one to be the most timid) so in the end, I relate most to Tobias.

#3. How did you first learn about this book series?

Ooh! Backstory time! I first originally learned of the series through my 5th grade teacher who read it to us as a class. After I had read it, I sort of forgot about it for some time until a couple years later I vaguely remembered I loved the plot in it and ended up reading it again. After the first few pages, I remembered I LOVED this series and I have continued on LOVING it until this very day. (I promise I won’t forget about this series again.) I even passed on the love to my friend and now we both fangirl over the same series.

 #4 If you had to spend the whole day with either Conner or Cregan which would you choose?

Connor’s not that bad, but Cregan….Cregan. We must not talk about him.

Connor for sure.

#5 What, in your opinion, was Sage’s most sassiest moment?

I wish I could narrow it down to even a few hundred because there are a TON of things and moments to love about Sage. Honestly, I cannot pick. I’m going to have to go for the entire book. (Does that count?)

#6. Which character do you think is the most underrated?

I can’t pick again! But since I have to I’m going to have to go with Issabelle on this one. I agree with her that Amarinda is sometimes overlooked.

#7. Share any fun things you’ve made or seen or learned about The Ascendance Series. ANYTHING AT ALL!!!

Here are the people I’m tagging:

(If only I could tag Issabelle again ’cause I know she is a HUGE fan of The False Prince.)

I’m tagging: YOU!

Yes, I’m tagging all the TFP fans out there. If you have a blog, great! If you don’t, well, do the tag in the comments!

False Prince fans unite!

I remember when I was once reading a tag, someone tagged everyone and I remember thinking it was too weird to put the tag on my newly made blog. (At this time it was Teen Pulse as my main blog) Well, like me if you are thinking this is weird to put it on your blog, DO NOT think so! (There is a reason I tagged all the TFP fans.) But if you do post this tag on your blog, don’t be afraid to tell me so I can come and read it!

Aww, this tag has come to an end! Noo! It was so fun to write about how much I love this series. Honestly I hope y’all go and read this book and series. Jennifer Nielson did an amazing job writing it. Go and read it sometime!

Next post will be that super fun post that I have been planning for awhile so buckle up for that! I will see you all again next time! Bye peeps!
