Beautiful Creatures

Standard

So I am so excited about Beautiful Creatures coming out soon I haven’t gotten to read the book yet which I know is very bad of me but I still have time but at the same time I kind of don’t want to. Its been my experience that if you read the book the movie will probably suck because the book is so amazing! Sometimes it can even make you mad-okay mini rant-if you read Blood and Chocolate and then saw the movie you understand! The only thing that was the same was the characters names! I mean seriously!!! Okay so mini rant over! So I might order it soon and read it!

Synopsis of Movie (2.13.13)

Ethan Wate, 17, has had the same recurring dream for months. A mysterious young girl is waiting for him on a Civil War battlefield. Ethan desperately wants to be with her, but there is an unknown danger—and each time a lightning bolt cracks like a gunshot, killing Ethan before he ever reaches the girl.

The danger of this strange dream world, however, is preferable to Ethan’s waking existence in Gatlin, South Carolina, a small, conservative Southern town that hasn’t caught up to the 21st century, where nothing ever changes and nothing ever happens. Trapped at home with a father who has completely withdrawn since the sudden death of Ethan’s mother, Ethan yearns for a life he can only read about in books.

But Ethan’s mundane world is shaken up with the arrival of Lena Duchannes, the beautiful and enigmatic niece of Macon Ravenwood, the reclusive owner of gothic Ravenwood Manor. Ethan finds himself immediately drawn to Lena, even though destruction seems to inexplicably follow her and it becomes apparent that she is a Caster, with powers beyond her control. The town, led by conservative Mrs. Lincoln, wants her banished. Even Gatlin’s all-knowing librarian, Amma, is afraid history may repeat itself—a history of family secrets and a curse that looms for Lena as she approaches her 16th birthday. It is that time when a Caster is chosen by the forces of either the Light or the Dark.

But Lena’s fate may already be sealed by the curse that draws both her and Ethan into a tangled web of spells and peril from which there may be no escape.

Book Series

So its a series!?? I didn’t know that see writing this actually caused me to learn something new today! But here is the overview of the box set:

There were no surprises in Gatlin County. At least, that’s what I thought. Turns out, I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world where a curse has marked Lena’s family of powerful Supernaturals for generations.

Mysterious, suspenseful, and romantic, Beautiful Creatures, Beautiful Darkness, and Beautiful Chaos introduce a secret world hidden in plain sight. A world where impossible, magical, life-altering events happen. Sometimes life-ending.

This stunning paperback set makes the perfect gift for fans of this bestselling Southern gothic romance.

So there is three books and as you can see you can get the box set from Barnes & Nobles for $17.54 or thats what I found! But its by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl live in Los Angeles, California, with their families. They are the authors of Beautiful CreaturesBeautiful DarknessBeautiful Chaos, and Beautiful Redemption.

I will probably get the box set because I don’t like buying books with the “movie” cover because I’m old school like that and then get the fourth book-I’m guessing Beautiful Redemption if the fourth one!

Alright in all seriousness when I was in high school I was selected to go to Philadelphia to the Peter Jennings: Journalism and the Constitution which was amazing! It was a fantastic opportunity and I got to meet a lot of people from other states but one boy from Pennsylvania actually asked me if we wore shoes. I mean really? What really kinda blew me away is this was a high school student that asked me surly your old enough to know the difference between reality and a stereotype? I mean in the summer I don’t like wearing shoes but who does? There is something about the freedom of being able to feel the grass under your feet and mud between your toes. But the ignorance of asking if people wore shoes all the time! Yes we do just like everyone else!

What I don’t understand is everyone has an accent so why don’t people get that? If I sound weird to you what do you think you sound like to me? I mean I have heard a lot of people make fun of my accent, or just of the accent of southern people, and we could do the same thing.

PicMonkey

Standard

So have you been looking for a new website to edit your photos? Add awesome effects and graphics? Look no farther I have found it! Its called PicMonkey and you can do all kinds of fun things with it! In case my fun link doesn’t work here is what the website looks like! You can make collages or just edit pictures!

I have edited some pictures for you to see some of things the website can do for you so you can decide if you want to try it out for yourself or not but I really like it. You can also get the “royale” stuff by becoming a member for Royale membership gets you ads-free editing and a kingly hoard of primo effects, fonts, overlays, and textures. Choose the monthly plan, at $4.99 a month, or the annual plan, at $33.00 a year. I don’t think I will do that but some people may think its worth it.

Okay here is one picture I did the one of the left is before (note that it was an instagram picture so it was already kinda edited) and the one on the right is the PicMonkey edit.

I also really like this one you can choice to just show one color out of the primary colors being from Kentucky I of course choice blue =P and my boyfriend had a lot of blue on that day so I figured it would be a good choice.
