Beyond the Horizon // Cover Reveal

Good morning everyone! :) A new post three days in a row – what's up with that, huh? Well, today I'm A cover reveal for Jesseca Wheaton's new Christmas novella!! :D 

Beyond the Horizon is a beautiful Cinderella re-telling, set in Austria during the Second World War. I had the pleasure of beta-reading it and...well... Let's just say, that I suggest ordering yourself a copy as soon as it's available. ;) 

I really want to make you scroll down repeatedly to see this L.O.V.E.L.Y. cover, but I'll be nice and not do that too y'all. :P

*drum roll* 

*happy sigh* Alrighty, here's a little info. :D 

About the Book:

Eliana longs to see the world beyond the mountains that tower above Salzburg, Austria, but knows that dream will never see such adventure- and neither will she.
Surrounded by a world of cruelty, she lives for the weekly visits of Aaron, a boy she met on one of her rambles through the 
But as the years pass and she begins to grow older, a new and unwelcome world is opened up to her.
On a fateful night at a party she vowed she’d never attend, she comes face to face with a shocking truth.
As the world around her teeters on the brink of war, Eliana struggles to figure out just where her loyalty lies; a decision that will drastically change the course of her life. Will she ever be free to see what lies beyond the horizon?

And an author introduction! :D 

About the Author: 

Jesseca is an 18-year old daughter, sister, and a child of God. Her days are spent reading, cooking, 
spending time with siblings, or playing piano.  And writing, of course! At an early age words fascinated her, and her love for the printed page has only grown. She lives with her parents and seven siblings in the sunny state of Kansas, and she’s convinced there’s no place like home.

Thanks for reading y'all!! :D For other posts in this cover reveal, visit Jesseca @ Whimsical Writings and Kaitlyn @ Twin Thoughts!! :)

12 Days of Christmas 2016 // Coming Soon!!

*skips in sipping peppermint mocha and humming Winter Wonderland* 

Hello everyone! How are you all on this lovely November day? :D 

Why am I in such great spirits, you asked? I finished a wreath order last night. So I am very happy that's over with. I even volunteered to cook dinner... XD And so aside from keeping up with the laundry (everyone around here has this strange fascination with clean clothes) and tidying up a bit (let's face it, my desk is a wreck) I have the day mostly free and will therefore be posting this (and obviously I did if you're reading it). And probably writing/scheduling some other post. ;) 

Peoples, guess what?! It's only about three weeks away!!! :D 

What am I talking about? Well, 12 Days of Christmas of course!! Last year, 6 other bloggers and I put on this fun little Christmas linkup. The way I did it then was email each of them, but didn't say anything about it here on the blog until the linkup began. This year, we're taking a slightly different route. I've been in touch with all of last year's participants and they're all in for this year too (yay!!). And it's been decided to let anyone else in on this as well. :) Read on for details and whatnot... 

What: 12 Days of Christmas is a blog linkup that I hosted here last Christmas. It runs for 12 days, beginning on the 14th and ending on Christmas Day. :) Last year, all the amazing posts ranged from Christmas songs and the stories behind them to Christmas traditions, recipes and books – and some lovely Christmas stories written by these great writers we have around here. Any and all things Christmas are welcome! :D 

For a look inside last year's linkup, check out this  wrap-up post for all the links. :) 

When: 12 Days of Christmas will be running Wednesday, December 14th through Sunday, December 25th (Christmas Day). Mark your calendars! 

Where: There will be a post on this blog every day throughout the event (as well as a couple of days on Chosen Vessels). Aside from whatever my post is for the day, there will be links to whoever else is posting that day. So although I'm hosting, we're all in this together! 

Why: Last year and again this year, the purpose of 12 Days of Christmas is to remind all of us of the true Reason for the Season. And to share Christmas love and joy with each other, and to enjoy ourselves while we're at it. :) 

How: For anyone interested in taking part, please email me through the Blogger contact form at the bottom right of this page. (If you do not get a reply from me within 24-48 hours, please try again and/or leave me a comment letting me know. The contact form has been known to act up and I don't want to miss any of y'all!) If you're wishing to take part, please be in contact with me on or before Sunday, December 11th. (If something comes up and you can't, please let me know ASAP and we'll work something out. :)) 

Spread the Word: Do you know someone who would be interested in joining us? Please spread the word around! Use the button below in a blog post or add it to your blog sidebar, linking here, to point everyone over! :D 

If you have any questions, leave a comment or shoot me an email! :D Last year we had a total of 7 participants. Can we double that this year? Triple it? :)

Hidden Gems: The Beautiful Pretender by Melanie Dickerson

Hey, everyone! I'm back with my second Melanie Dickerson review. :D If you missed Tuesday's post or you simply want more details about what's going on here, click here

What happens when a margrave realizes he’s fallen in love with a servant?

The Margrave of Thornbeck has to find a bride, fast. He invites ten noble-born ladies from around the country to be his guests at Thornbeck Castle for two weeks, a time to test these ladies and reveal their true character.

Avelina is only responsible for two things: making sure her deception goes undetected and avoiding being selected as the margrave’s bride. Since the latter seems unlikely, she concentrates on not getting caught. No one must know she is merely a maidservant, sent by the Earl of Plimmwald to stand in for his daughter, Dorothea.

Despite Avelina’s best attempts at diverting attention from herself, the margrave has taken notice. And try as she might, she can’t deny her own growing feelings. But something else is afoot in the castle. Something sinister that could have far worse—far deadlier—consequences. Will Avelina be able to stop the evil plot? And at what cost?

My Review

Wow. Just as the lovely cover implies, this was a beautiful book. I loved the storyline of "she's-beneath-him-and-not-good-enough-he's-the-margrave-she's-a-servant-girl", etc., etc. Ahh! It was wonderful!! :D 

Avelina was a really sweet character. Not perfect, and she did some deceitful things that I don't believe she would have done under normal circumstances, but she was lovable. :) She offen struggled with being 'good enough' and, ahhh! *clutches heart* How she realized that in Christ was would always be 'enough'... Amazing. <3 

I have to say that, originally, I did not like Lord Thornbeck. Especially in book one. He was so gruff and rude!! Thankfully, he changed. Softened up some. Showed his good side. And I was able to enjoy his character too. ^_^ (Sidenote here – the wolves. That whole like *flaps hands* chapter was. so. like. amazing. gah.) 
I also liked the 'minor storyline' of his limp. Not overpowering with the rest of the stuff going on, but still there. And I loved how that turned out too...hehe. ;) 

All the side characters were amazing too!! Odette and Jorgen from book one, Lady Magdalen (such a sweet heart!! <3), Avelina's siblings, and even the King! (Though his part was extremely minor... XD) 

As far as 'warnings' go, there is one thing I didn't agree with. There is mention of an unmarried couple who slept together there at the castle. (This took place previously. Both are dead at the time of the book .) It's mentioned that it's wrong because of the lack of social status of one of the people, but it's never clarified that it's morally wrong. I honestly don't think Mrs. Dickerson intended to insinuate that it's 'okay', so I was able to overlook it. 

Overall, 4.5 stars!! 

I'm really looking forward to reading book three, The Noble Servant, in May of 2017. (Psst! It's about Lady Magdalen! :D) 


Have you read this book? Or anything else by Mrs. Dickerson? Are you looking forward to The Noble Servant

Hidden Gems: The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest by Melanie Dickerson

Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a great week so far. :) Remember a couple weeks ago when I posted reviews of The Blades of Acktar fantasy series? Well, I'm back with more reviews in participation with Shantelle's Hidden Gems link-up!!! :D 

This week, the author spotlight is Melanie Dickerson. Today I'll be reviewing The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest, book one in the Medieval Fairy Tale series. Also, click here for an author interview, book spotlights, and a giveaway!! All the bookish fun! :D 

A beautiful maiden who poaches to feed the poor.

A handsome forester on a mission to catch her.

Danger and love are about to unite in Thornbeck Forest.

The margrave owns the finest hunting grounds for miles around—and who teaches children to read, but by night this young beauty has become the secret lifeline to the poorest of the poor.

For Jorgen Hartman, the margrave’s forester, tracking down a poacher is a duty he is all too willing to perform. Jorgen inherited his post from the man who raised him . . . a man who was murdered at the hands of a poacher.

When Jorgen and Odette meet at the Midsummer festival and share a connection during a dance, neither has any idea that they are already adversaries.

The one man she wants is bound by duty to capture her; the one woman he loves is his cunning target . . . What becomes of a forester who protects a notorious poacher? What becomes of a poacher when she is finally discovered?

My Review

*happy sigh* Ahhh, this is such an amazing book – with a delightful and satisfying ending!! :) I had heard a lot of good about Melanie Dickerson's novels, but I hadn't tried one until last month. Everyone was so right! Her books (so far, anyways) are AMAZING. So sweet and lovely!! :D This was my first, I've read one since it, and I can't wait to read more! :) 

I think of this book as a sort of different twist on the classic tale of 'Robin Hood'. I haven't read Robin Hood, but I know the general storyline (stealing from the rich and giving to the poor and all that). And with Odette as the talented, girl poacher, it's got a lot of similarities. 

Odette and Jorgen were both such amazing characters. They both have such a heart for the orphans of Thornbeck!! <3 <3 Odette is so sweet and charming, a lovable girl-MC. And then Jorgen is just...the best. His backstory brought me to tears...I'm serious. *tissues* 

Odette's Uncle Rutger and then this Mathis-Papendorp-dude were two that I didn't particularly care for. I didn't mind Rutger at first, but (I totally saw *that* coming, by the way... B-)) They were great-bad-characters though. XD

Anna, Jorgen's mother, and Katharine were all awesome characters! I really enjoyed each of their additions to the story. :) 

Lastly, I can't think of any warnings to give for this book. There is romance (duh.), but it's all clean, appropriate, and adorable. ^_^ 

Five stars, all the way!! :D 


Have you read anything by Melanie Dickerson? Do you enjoy fairytale retellings? Check back Thursday for another review!

Leaves, Pumpkins, and Candy Corn // October Recap

Well, it's that time of month again. Today is November. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN LIKE WHAT?! *ahem* 

I love writing and reading these monthly recaps, it just me or are they coming a bit too frequently? (This is where you say "yes, Faith. Yes, they are." And we devise a way to slow time. Mwahahaha.) 

But seeing as how it is this time again, let's move on before this post becomes a book. ;) 

~*~ Life ~*~ 

FALL PEOPLE ITS FALL. Haha, yeah, basically sums up October for me. XD *bombards you with fall-ish stuff-ies* 

--from Pinterest 

--from Pinterest 

// This month I finally got a desk for my room!!! ^_^ My little bro made it for me and it is LOVELY! 

My desk the night after it got moved to my room...

And after about three weeks of use... :P #messywriterperson

// On October first, we plowed potatoes. It's like an unwritten P. family tradition, something that is did by the family every fall without question. I drove the big ol' tractor part of the time this year, and it was an...interesting experience. My foot hardly reached the clutch, but it worked. :P 

// I...spent a lot of money? More on that in a bit, but here's the general idea.

Books, movies, music! 

// Read this amazing quote... “The demand that God should forgive such a man while he remains what he is, is based on a confusion between condoning and forgiving. To condone an evil is simply to ignore it, to treat it as if it were good. But forgiveness needs to be accepted as well as offered if it is to be complete: a man who admits no guilt can accept no forgiveness.”    -- C.S. Lewis 

// So one Friday night (10/21) my bro walks into my room and he's like "pretend like I'm beating you". So he starts whacking the bed and as he does I scream. We weren't very synchronized, but no one cared. I was laughing so hard my screams were more like squeals and Mom caught on to our gag pretty quick. XD    Yeah, just the randomness of my life. :P 

// I learned when mayonnaise became a thing... I'm serious!! It was in my history book. It was made in 1756 by the French. ;) 

// I got a splinter in the *TOP* of my toe. Yeah. Still not sure how that happened... 

// I saw this sign in a hair salon... *snickers*

// I mastered eating ice cream. From a cup. Without a spoon. Sorry, no picture. XD 

// My dad and bro went deer hunting last weekend, and Mom and I had a When Calls the Heart 'marathon'. :) Also while they were gone we spent the day with my great-aunt. She lives in a quaint little town a little over an hour away and it's (I'm not kidding) like going back a decade or two. :P We ate lunch, roamed the streets, window-shopped, and I bought some books. (They had a hard time dragging me out of those stores...) 

// Basically my life. Basically.

~*~ Writing ~*~ 

This is the lovely typewriter notebook I got a Books-A-Million. It's so purty!! :)

My total word count rolled in at 4,257, in seven different projects. ;) However, War Tears can only claim 2,566 of that. Finishing by Christmas isn't looking so well. :P 

~*~ Movies and Music ~*~ 

First off, THIS. 

I have now saw every episode of the TV show When Calls the Heart and love it dearly. :) That season three finale though...I need more. Please, Hallmark? 

On the music note (pun *totally* intended), I'm flailing over Casting Crowns newest CD. 

I've played it on repeat, much to the annoyance of certain household members. *coughs* *glances at The Kid*

My goals for October were... 

>> Read five books.              Check! 

>> Beta-read two books.             Um, well, I finished one. XP

>> Finish the remaining short-story which is for this contest.      Actually, no. I ended up skipping the contest. I do plan to finish the story someday though and share it here. :) 

>> Hit 68k in War Tears. (I want to finish it by Christmas. #shrieking)    Ha! No. I didn't even hit 65k. *sad face* 

>> Make curtains (FIANLLY).      Again, no. ACK.

Goals for November!! 

>> Read five books. 

>> Finish beta-reading the aforementioned book. 

>> Hit 68k in War Tears. (Ha. I'm overly optimistic. But. We'll see.) 

>> Survive the worst of tree harvest. (Starts today. I have 15 wreaths to make in 2 days.) 

Alrighty, you know the routine. Books – have you read them? Movies – have you watched them? Songs – have you heard them? Posts – did you like them? Goals – what are yours? XD 

See y'all in a couple days!
