F is for Favorites!


I thought I was going to do a segment on "What is your Plot?" but then I realized something. I wasn't sure on how to go about doing that certain blog post and my hearts started to swerve to another idea that I think you all will enjoy. I decided to do a post on my Favorite Author's. I have three particularly in mind. Weezie Kerr Mackey, Gail Carson Levine, and J..K. Rowling.

Why are they my favorite authors right now? I absolutely love any author who can create a world I've never been to and then piece it together to form a visual in my mind. Most authors are very good at this while others are not. These three authors are quite good at it.

I love Weezie Kerr Mackey because she is a fresh off the press author.  Her first book, Throwing Like A Girl was a really amazing read. I saw it in the book store a couple of times before I bought it and what can I say, the cover had me hooked. I was sort of obsessed at the time with Baseball. As you can tell from the title of the book, it had to do with Baseball or well I should say Softball since we are Throwing Like A Girl  and not a boy. I recommend this book to all my readers because it is a really great story about a girl in a new city, making friends, and learning a new sport. Most of us can relate to her reality. I sure can. Well all but the Sports part. I was never a athlete in school.

i ve been a huge fan of Gail Carson Levine ever since I read her book, The Two Princesses of Bamarre. I just adored the story and the writing style was amazing. I couldn't believe that the book swept me off my feet like it did.  I instantly formed a connection with the book and it's characters.  The two characters were easy to relate. Since I've read that book, I've read two of her other books. Fairest and Crating Magic: Writing Stories that Fly. I was so excited to have gotten a chance to read her other books. If you haven't read any of her work then you seriously need to go to a library or a bookstore and pick up a few. If you didn't know, she is also the author of Ella Enchanted.

I grew up with J.K. Rowling and her wizarding world was just so cool and amazing. The main characters so easy to relate to. The world is very believable and amazing. You sort of just fall straight into the book and it doesn't let you turn away. The books are amazing. I think that this book series had been turned into a movie is so awesome. I am proud to say that the characters in the book reflect the actors and actress who portray them. Most of the time you picture a character a certain way in your head but as soon as they are brought into the real world, the character no longer resembles what you thought they might look like, This series didn't disappoint me one bit. I suggest sitting down and grabbing the first couple of books. The books are so much better than the movie but that always seems to be the case.

What are my favorite books by these authors? Throwing Like A Girl By Weezie Kerr Mackey, Fairest By Gail Carson Levine, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire By J.K.Rowling.

Love Britt

Expensive Things I'd Love to Own...!!!

Hey Y'all.

Lately I have been feeling the need to take the time to really think about what I want from life. As most of you know by now, I became a mother in January. My journey of motherhood has been a wonderful one so far. Ever since I have become a mother, I have felt this need to upgrade my life. I have felt this need to upgrade my style of clothing. I thought I was going for the whole bohemian style look that I really do love. But I realized something from one to many of my shopping trips. I've found that as much as I love the the bohemian style. I tend to lean towards clothes that are classy and elegant that I can pair with my bohemian style. I've decided that though that I wish to continue with this style choice which is called bohemian chic or bohemian classy. I want to look into buying some name brand items to add to my closet that will last me a lot longer than their more affordable counterparts.

I also need to start working out so I can look start to feel good a…

Light and Fluffy...!!!

Hey Y'all,

So lately I've been getting dizzy and light headed while driving. It kind of sucks. I'm not sure what is causing it either. After I get home sometime the dizziness and light headed feeling doesn't go away. I feel like I am stuck in my home because of it. I don't like. Not one bit.  I'm kind of scared that I am showing signs of getting vertigo like my dad. I really hope not.

Also my mom is here visiting from South Carolina. She is driving me insane. I mean I love her because she is my mom. But boy she really knows just how to annoy me.

Writing on Wednesdays's - Beautiful...!!!

Hey Y'all,
Does he even see me So many different things That make you special
She'll never see the way you look at her Even though secretly she does She's got a mild attraction she can't help
Will he ever see me  Do you know...Do you know He'll actually understand To caught up in himself
Do you you know

I'm not sure who this is about. I think it was back when I was trying to write lyrics for songs. Yeah, as you can see it wasn't my thing. It may not have been for that. I mean I'm not much of a poet either.
