Highlights of my party!!

Hey everyone!!

Thank you all who came to my party yesterday!!! I love you guys so much!! You guys are amazing!!

Ok, so, the whole time, I was laughing my head off. Who guys are SO FREAKING FUNNY.

Ok, so lines I can remember that made me laugh so hard are:

"Who in the name of Mike is Maddie?" 

"Where is Fredrick? I want to cut off his head!"

"It's 'aye'. Learn to spell." (Jashub was being a bit mean, I'm afraid to admit.)

"Hey Catherine, are you free Friday night?" (one of the party guests was a little too forward. lol)

"Hey Catherine, if I was 3 years older, we would have chemistry." (lol)

 "'I just fell off my chair!' 'I saw it'" (hehe, brothers and sisters)

"'Not cool' Sicky Vicky quote." (some Sonny With a Chance things in there too!)

"RD2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" (LOL)

And so many more!!! It was such a great party!!!

Oh! I almost forgot, and the new book I'm writing it Elament Girl. More details soon!!!

Thank you again!!

Hey everyone!!

My writing career birthday party is today!!! Just follow this link: PARTY! or go up top to "Maddie's Writing Career Birthday Party page!!" :)

Here's the plan for the party:

Make sure you stay the entire time!! There is no set plan. It's just an hour of fun!! So if you show up for a certain thing, there's a good chance it's already over, or we haven't done it yet. So make sure you stay for the whole hour! (if you can't, that is fine.) And those who asked: you don't need to bring me presents. ;)

Plan for Maddie's party:

just chat until everyone is mostly here.
Then, do giveaways, and will announce winners after questions. Then you guys can chat until I get the special guests. ;) Catherine and Jashub will be to answer all your questions. :D And I know your excited about that!! And then I'll make just some announcements. Hopefully, you won't get bored and leave. Then you can ask more questions and just chat until I kick you out. lol

Giveaways:  (will announce how to win at the party)
                   1st place winner gets to pick any book they want out of my books. (not including Shadow Future)
                   2nd place winner gets a "Feathers" book.
                   3rd place winner gets a signed bookplate.

Special Guests: The Pirate Chronicles crew! (Catherine and Jashub and maybe some more...)

Questions: Ask away! As long as they're appropriate. If they are not, they will not be answered. Ex: "What's your favorite food?" (that's a good question.) I will not being doing a example of a bad question.

Announcements: Come and find out!!

I hope to "see" you all there!!!!

After Christmas Post!

Hey everyone!!

I hope everyone had a GREAT Christmas!!! I did. :) I got some awesome things. I got two books by Ally Carter. And a PSP with Pirates of the Caribbean LEGOS. (and you know much I like that.) And I got a really cool hat. (I can't spell it, so here's a pic of one:)

There...that hat. lol

Anyhoo, I watched the movie: "What If?" with my family on Christmas night. And I got this verse from it, check it out:

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered. It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves.  Love never fails."
1 Corinthians 13:4-8a


Merry CHRISTmas everyone! Jesus is the REASON of the season!!

God bless!


PS: Don't forget about my party tomorrow!!! Check the page to get the whole party plan!!

Merry Christmas Eve!!

Hey everyone!!!

Merry Christmas Eve!! Are you guys excited? I sure am. :)

I already got some awesome gifts from my Nana and Papa. I'll probably post pics later.

I'm dancing at my church tonight. (2 hours of awesomeness!) nervous. Pray for me.

I also have a cough, but that's almost gone. I'm super happy about that!!

Ok, so as a Christmas present, here's a little paragraph from SHADOW FUTURE.

I braced myself. I can do this. Adskhan and Arnold are nervous too. I kept telling myself.

Then I felt hands on me and I was forced to stand up.

My heart beat in my ears.

I made my legs work. One by one. Step by step.

I looked at the ground and the hands stopped me.

I sensed the figure before me stand.

I could sense his nerves. And how nervous he was. But I couldn’t sense who it was.

I was told to put out my left hand.

I did, my heart felt like it would come out of me. And fly across the room and hit an Elder in the face. I smirked at that image, but vanished when I remembered what I was doing.

Then the boy before me, reached out from behind his cloak and took my left hand in his, and he removed the glove, like thousands of couples have done for decades.

And he lifted my hand to his lips and kissed it.

And immediately I knew who it was. I…I couldn’t believe who it was.

Annnnnd, one more thing, a littlie piece of the REAL cover:

Merry Christmas everyone!! "God bless us! Everyone!" - Tiny Tim.

Review: The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter

This is the 90th book I've read this year.

It's always been just Kate and her mom—and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld—and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.
Kate is sure he's crazy—until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.

Christin Beliefs/Other belief systems: it's all Greek mythology. And they do mention Christina and saying that Satan was part of the Christin belief system. (that just annoyed me, but it's true) and there are the Greek gods.

Language:  There was, p--s, d----it, d--n, b--ch. There was screw too. And they used the LORD's name in vain a couple of times.

Romance: Well, there was lots of kissing, but not until towards the end of the book. That's when it got serious. They refer to sex as "that" they never say sex though. And people do sleep with each other. But they just say it. One time someone wakes up in a "tangle of limbs". And there's always the "wife" thing floating around. I think that sums that up.

Any other bad things: Not really, just that there's blood, and someone gets their head cracked open. And you can see...things...(it was gross, I skipped that part lol) and someone hurts their ankle. But I didn't like, was that some people were in each others rooms. And they weren't the same gender. Me, personally, I wouldn't like a guy in my room, even if it was day time. Or anytime. It was one of my good friends, I wouldn't find as much, but I usually have a girl with me too. Anyway, that's just my opinion. And there's always the kidnapping theory floating around too, in the beginning. And people are dying...I mean, Henry is the god of the Underworld. What do you except, you know?

Comments: This book was great. But not as great as I thought it would be. I found myself skipping lots of things. Because I was bored, or I just wanted to see what happened. I like Greek myths and the gods and all that. But this wasn't anything like Percy Jackson. And I was little disappointment. Aimee was changing myths, and Rick Riordan does that too, but not as much as Aimee was doing. And even though Greek myths, are well, just myths. It bothered me. But I still enjoyed it enough to keep going. (I actually stayed up until 1am last night reading it. That's the first time I've finished a book in a day btw.) It also took awhile for something to get going. But that's what authors do. (I'm getting better at that.) they make you want to keep reading, so they keep holding back the truth. And the mystery in there was great. I actually almost solved it!

Rating: 4 out of 5 for awesomeness
2 out of 5 for any age. (for romance, and violence)


Plan for Maddie's party!!

Hey all! The plan for the party on the 27th 5-6pm EST is up!! Go check it!!

New Chat Box!!

Hey all!

Go up top and "click" on the "Maddie's 1st writing career page!!" and check on the new chat box! It's pretty awesome...


Official Cover - Coming soon!!

Hey everyone! Check this out: (ignore awful spelling)

*evil laugher* I have the cover!! Can't wait to show you! (I will probably show you when I have a release date, or maybe before...)

Just wanted to show you! Make sure you check out the summary for Shadow Future:

Pearl has always been the quiet girl, she lets people tell her what to do.  And when your a girl in a very controlling place, that's always a good choice.
But when a choice is made for her, that she can't go through with.  She can't change it, no matter how hard she tries.
She tells herself that she needs to make her own future. But she doesn't know how. She's never had to stand up for herself, until now.
She tries, and ends up knowing things she would have rather not have known. And pain that's almost too much to handle.
But she knows she must keep trying, no matter what happens, or her future will be a dark...

Review: Matched by Ally Condie

This is the 90th book I've read this year.

Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate... until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black.

The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can't stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society's infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path that no one else has dared to follow

 Christian Beliefs: ...

Other Belief systems: Cassia does refer to the Society as their God's. Like, they have to obey them, because if you don't, you'll be in huge trouble.
 The Society does have a big hand hold on everyone, they control everything you do. 

 Language: None. Nada. I am very happy. I was like, "what? No bad words? No swearing? No using the LORD's name in vain? YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!"

Romance: There is kissing, sometimes on the cheek, and sometimes on the lips. But it's very sweet. This is the first YA novel where the kissing really isn't bad, and it's just short and sweet. I love reading about kisses like that. :)
They hug a lot, and Cassia says she loves someone, in two different ways, and other people say that too.
Also, on a person's 17th birthday, they have a Match Banquet. Where the Society finds who that one person will marry. It's like an arranged marriage, but very sci-fi like.

Any other bad things: Nope, just that the Society is very not nice, and that they say that some people die, and on a person's 80th birthday, they die. There are things called "Infraction" which is when someone does something bad, and they have to be punished for it. Or "cited" which is the same thing basically.

Comments: I loved this book. It was like a poem. It felt like I was reading a poem. I also liked how there was nothing too seriously bad in this book. Just a few kisses here and there, and throwing someone into someone elses arms. Romantic. A very sweet romance. :)
What I didn't like, was that the author wrote as if the story was happening then and there to the person, so they used words like 'say' and words that say that the story is happening now. It messed up my writing because I don't write in first person like it, I use words like 'watched' and 'said'. Like it happened. And it's not happening right this minute.
I also didn't like how when Cassia called, s he didn't have any emotion in her words really. But when she thought, there was more emotion.

 Rating: 5 out of 5 stars for awesomeness.
 And 4 out of 5 stars for any age. :)

Hey guys!!

Did you enjoy the cover? I think it's pretty cool myself.

Anyhoo, as you can see, there is Christmas music right above this post. And it comes on automatically, as soon as you enter the blog. I also have normal music at the bottom, that does not start automatically. So you can choose which ever music you want to listen to.

Well, I hope you guys have a great day!


PS: Do you like the CHRISTmas skin?? lol

Review: Leaving Fishers by Margaret Peterson Haddix

This is the 89th book I've read this year.

Summary from:

A new girl in town joins a cult-like religious group until an outrageous act forces her to reexamine her values and find a way to break free.

Christian Beliefs/Other belief systems: Well, here we go...The Fishers of Men group or 'cult' is all about following God's rules, and what is in the Bible, they just don't take it the right way. They make people do things that God would never want them to do. But they do know that Jesus died for them, and that if you don't accept Christ, you would go to hell, they just don't understand that if you mess up, or don't pray enough, or something else crazy, you'd go to hell even though you were saved.

Language: They use the LORD's name in vain once. And Dorry (the main character) thinks that someone will call her an idoit. And they use sex a couple times, which isn't bad, it's a thing that husband and wife do when their married, but I know to some people it is, so I'm going to tell you, but not in a bad helps tell the story, but it also says how messed up a certain person is, and how some people fell for it. It acutally  made me want to cry. It was so sad.

Romance: They use sex sometimes, and lust and liking someone, or saying that someone was hunk, or that he cute. And some guys joke around about girls being there, since girls and boys weren't allowed to mix in the Fishers until a Level Two. (I know, weird). And a girl named Lara said she laid with any guy who wanted her, because she felt lonely, but she stopped that when she joined the Fishers. 

Any other bad things: I think I've mentioned anything that would bother somebody, just that Dorry gets sick, and fasts so much that she looses weight, and her grades go down, and she gets like, no sleep because of all the praying the Fishers told  her to do.

Comments: I LOVED IT!!! It really tells you about what other people really believe, It was also kind of test, I am a Christian, not afraid to say it either, so it was kind of interesting to see what the Fishers believed. This is by far, the most awesome book I've read this year, and it took me 87 other books to find that out! lol. I hope you guys take time to read it. It might make you cry in some places, just a warning. But a cry now and then ain't to bad. :)

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars for AMAZINGINGESS
3 out of 5 for any age. (I think only teens and up should read this, and maybe a 12 year old, and it all depends on your parents allowance with certain books)
