My New Top 5 Wattpad Books

These books are a MUST READ on Wattpad!

Note: These are in no particular order.

1 Evelyn. This book was on my list last time too. It is one of  my favorites and is by my friend Grace Matlyn.

Description: Princess Evelyn of Araryth mostly does what she wishes; at least until a marriage proposal arises. The rulers of Cylle, the island across the sea, request a dynastic union between their son, Prince Carl and Princess Evelyn. On the outside, Prince Carl is everything Evelyn could wish for, but below the surface, something dark is hidden. The polite sailor at the docks however, is quite a different story. Listen as Princess Evelyn guides through her romance, and beware the secrets that lie underneath.
NOTE: Evelyn is the first book in the series, The Araryth Chronicles. For more information, please visit: ararythchronicles.wordpress.com.

2 The Season. This book is AMAZING! It’s part of a series that is three books plus a prequel right now. (She may have more books I don’t know)

Description: Libby Marks-Whelan is decidedly not a lady. Kicked out of nearly every finishing school in the country, she’s shocked when her demure, straight-laced cousin Ella invites her to the royal court as attendant during her debutante season. What Ella fails to realize, however, is that Libby’s brand of mischief is exactly the kind of distraction Prince Andrew is looking for during his inaugural season as an eligible bachelor.

3 The Captured Princess. You may be noticing a theme. I like princesses. This book I have STILL not read yet, but I really want to! I just can’t find the time….

Description: Princess Adira never wanted to have a royal title, and she most certainly never wanted all the pressure that came with it. She just wanted to have the freedom to be herself. To practice sword fighting for fun, and to be with the one she loved, Theo. But of course, that was something that could never happen. Theo was just a guard, someone her father would never allow her to marry.

Adira thought that being forbidden to marry Theo would be the worst thing to happen to her. But oh, how wrong she was. In the blink of an eye, her world is turned upside down. She is kidnapped by an embittered mercenary with a thirst for revenge and his peculiar sidekick, taken away from her home and used as leverage for the man’s wishes.

All is dark and she sees no hope. But she is not alone.

4 Runaway Princess. Again. Theme. I have not read this one either, but it’s on my list to read after the captured princess, and I read a few chapters. Looking forward to it!

Description: Lyra knew that one day she would be set into an arranged marriage like a chess piece. She had been preparing for it her whole life, and she was almost alright with her fate. But she never thought that her father would choose the man that he did. That decision changed everything.

The King of Whales is ruthless, more than twice her age and surrounded by tainted gold and loads of unsavory rumors. There has been many wives of his before Lyra, with no explanations to the untimely deaths of the previous five. With each dead Queen came more money from their kingdoms, straight into the King’s portly lap.

Disguised as a young man, Lyra runs from her duty as the only Princess of Nordic. She cuts her hair, takes her steed and dissapears into the night with her father’s men hot on her heels.

Enter Kaladin’s team. Occupation: Mercenaries.

Lyra uses skills taught to her by a close, childhood friend and plays herself into the trust of the dangerous strangers until they accept her, or rather, “Navani”, into their group.

What will happen to her once they see through her web of lies and tricks? Will Lyra give herself up as Princess when she is reunited with her long-lost friend, or will she carry on as a boy with the mercenaries?

Follow Lyra to see what she will do when she comes to realize that things have gotten far too big for her to handle on her own. There are assassin’s out for her head, king’s thirsting for her blood, and an underground network of people who live for her ruin. But there is also an unlikely Prince to deffend her, who has some tricks of his own to rely on. The Princess soon sees that she is not nearly as alone as she may have once thought.

What will Lyra do when she comes to terms with her destiny? Will she face it this time with her new friends, or will she chose to runaway again?

5 A Kind of Cinderella Story. Another princess one. I am in the middle of this one.

Description:  A masked Ball. Two hundred thirty five Ladies. Four men all posing as the Prince. One woman out to find freedom and happiness.

******

As the King’s eldest son comes upon his twenty first year, the people eagerly anticipate the choosing of his bride, their soon-to-be future Queen. But as the day draws nearer, an announcement is sent throughout the whole kingdom, sending for all young ladies to come and attend a month long masked ball at the castle, with the winner being made his wife.

Meanwhile, Isabell, a young woman serving in the confines of a dirty estate is given a once in a lifetime opportunity: an invitation to the ball, extended to her by a distant aunt. She reluctantly agrees to go, as the only eligible young lady of the family. But things take a turn for the unexpected when Isabell finds herself falling in love with one of the castle servants instead.

Facing off against impossible odds and cruel competitors, she’ll have to choose between freedom and love.

******

No mature content!

A Sequel Series of ‘A Kind of Beauty and the Beast Story’

Can be read as a stand alone though!

Leaving

So as you may know, I’m not much of a people person. Don’t take me wrong, I LOVE my friends and everyone, but I’m just a very quiet, shy person. You may not guess it from my writing, but yes, I am. I had a lot of people time today, so I’m a little overwhelmed, but that’s okay.

Today is Sunday, for those of you who are reading this later. It’s 8:47 where I live and my siblings are in bed. My mom is watching a HTV movie on the couch across from me. I’m blogging, as you can tell. Today was a very busy day. It is/was our last Sunday in North Carolina. We said a lot of good-byes, some of them to be our last. We made plans to get together over the next week with our friends.

Today I said goodbye to people I’ve only known for three years.

Today was one of the hardest days, because while it feels like I’ll keep on seeing everyone, I know I won’t see half of them again. And that’s very sad. Because even if I rarely talk to them, most of my youth group has influenced me in some way. And even if some of them are annoying from time to time, everyone has their moments.

And I want to say, I’ll miss you all.

You bought a cookie cake for me, took pictures with the polaroid camera, prayed over me, wrote me special notes on the chalkboard wall, and made me a card that you all signed. I love that. Thank you oh so much.

But it’s sad. It really is.

I’m learning, I’m growing, I’m leaving. I don’t want to leave my best of friends, my fellow LGRG writers.

But that’s life.

One of my friends made a special gift, she decorated a bunch of pages in the journal we do together. She made special notes and included a picture of her family. She’s so awesome and amazing.

I also reconnected with a friend who I was good friends with for a while, but then something happend and now we aren’t as close. But today I felt like we where really truly friends again, wich I’ve had that felling recently. She’s really nice, a bit different from time to time, but sweet.

I’ll miss them all. I’m glad I could have this time, three years, to live in North Carolina and enjoy the fellowship of my fellow youth. All of them, even the ones who I don’t know well, because youth wouldn’t be the same without them.

I’ll miss them.

Goodbye.

Letters From Home~ A Civil War Story

So my friend is writing a book called Letters From Home~ A Civil War Story. I highly suggest it to you- it’s a historical fiction romance book. She has almost finished it, and it comes out January 1st 2018.

The description reads this:

It is well that war is so terrible, otherwise we should grow too fond of it.
~General Robert E. Lee, CSA

Fourteen year old Marigold Ruth Bryant and her friends lived the life of farmers in the early 1860s. But times are changing. With the attack on Fort Sumter, Marigold’s life in Western North Carolina is turned upside down. Romance and uncertainty now precede each step. Meeting legendary figures in this war, Marigold must decide what she truly believes. Follow the steps of this simple farm girl, and discover more about the lives of those impacted by this conflict.

Bittersweet

She said goodbye
I went far away
Never thought I’d be seeing her again

But now I am
I’m going back

I should be happy
And I am
But the whole thing

Is rather
Bittersweet

I made new friends,
Said Hello
Thought I’d always see them

Now I’m leaving,
Traveling far away

I’ll be saying hello to her again
But goodbye to those I know now
Goodbye to new people, hello to old.

It’s sad,
I’m leaving a place where I grew

But it’s happy too,
I’m going back home
I’m seeing her again

It’s bittersweet,
As I say goodbye again

It’s bittersweet,
As I say goodbye
I thought moving here was hard

I hid under the covers that day
Didn’t want to leave

But hey,
I made it here,
I’ve been good so far

I’m here
I’m leaving

It’s Bittersweet

Goodbye Graciebeth
Goodbye Grace Matlyn
Goodbye Reba
