And everything is pretty perfect (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the dreaded Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighborhood.

Cherryculture / NYX Haul

I really needed to buy some makeup essentials since I was running out, so I ordered a few products from Cherryculture. I've ordered from that website before and the experience was really good, especially since I'm a big fan of NYX and I could get a lot of products for less money.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Title: Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1)
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Adventure, Mystery
Published: August 2012

My Rating: 4/5

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.  

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilarating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

My Recent Drawings #1

I thought it'd be nice to make a post from time to time to share with you what I've been drawing. 

I've sometimes thought of making written tutorials with pictures or maybe some of those speed drawing videos you see on Youtube. But I still haven't decided, any of those could be a lot of work. What do you think? Should I be doing tutorials? Or maybe speed drawing videos? I want to do something that people will like and may find useful... The videos sound like a really nice idea... Although I don't know how I'm going to get the time for that haha >_< I'm just doing so many things right now...

Darcy's Story by Janet Aylmer

Title: Darcy's Story
Author: Janet Aylmer
Genre: Historical Fiction, Regency, Romance, Retelling
Published: July 1996

My Rating: 2/5

When Elizabeth Bennet first met Mr. Darcy, she found him proud, distant, and rude—despite the other ladies' admiration of his estate in Derbyshire and ten thousand pounds a year. But what was Mr. Darcy thinking? 

Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice has long stood among the most beloved novels of all time. The story of Elizabeth Bennet's blossoming romance with "haughty, reserved, and fastidious" Fitzwilliam Darcy has enchanted readers for nearly two centuries. Yet, Mr. Darcy has always remained an intriguing enigma—his thoughts, feelings, and motivations hidden behind a cold, impenetrable exterior . . . until now.

With the utmost respect for Austen's original masterwork, author Janet Aylmer loving retells Pride and Prejudice from a bold new perspective: seeing events as they transpire through the eyes of Darcy himself. One of world's great love stories takes on breathtaking new life, and one of fiction's greatest romantic heroes becomes even more sympathetic, compelling, attractive, and accessible, all through the imagination and artistry of a truly gifted storyteller.
