Notice anything new?
I have been BURSTING to show you guys the new look and rebrand! Let me know what you think ^_^
“Why’d you do it?” you ask. Well, I’m really wanting to get serious about blogging again and sometimes you require the tectonic plates of the earth to shift in order to get you up and moving…hence the makeover.
I needed a fresh start to a new season that expresses where I am in life right now.
In case you’re wondering, I haven’t changed that much and this blog is still going to involve books and writing and such, but “Thoughtful Inklings” is going to be a sprinkling of different things.
Like a junk drawer.
If you take a peek at my last blog post, I’m done with thinking I have to write a long essay in order to achieve a proper post.
So my focus here is going to be blurbs of thought; a dash of this and that.
Now that we’ve got all the business taken care of, I wanted to celebrate with a special GIVEAWAY!!
I’m super excited, and I’m sure you’re wondering what treasures await you…….
I am giving away this paperback copy of “Carve the Mark” by Veronica Roth and this pretty candle that smells like the flowers that graced Aphrodite’s crown.
If you haven’t heard of this book, you are probably living under a rock, but here’s the synopsis just to tickle your excitement bones:
“Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra’s currentgift gives her pain and power—something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother’s hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows.
Akos is the son of a farmer and an oracle from the frozen nation-planet of Thuvhe. Protected by his unusual currentgift, Akos is generous in spirit, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive—no matter what the cost.
Then Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, and the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. Will they help each other to survive, or will they destroy one another?”
