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.

Hello 2015! Let's stay organized, shall we?

The new year is finally here! (Oh God, whyyy?? Time needs to slow down). So I thought I'd share with you some tips on how I like to stay organized, because who wants to get to school/university one day and find out they had a test they completely forgot about? :)

Lemon Pie Recipe

The other day my sister and I decided to make a little lemon pie. We've just made one lemon pie before and that was years ago, so I started looking for recipes and, since I didn't really like any of them completely, I took like three different ones and with them I created one I actually liked, so I thought of sharing it with you :)

I'm going to separate this recipe into three parts, just like I did when creating it and making the pie ourselves: crust, filling and cream. So let's begin!

Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful copper-haired daughter, Brianna, as Claire’s spellbinding journey of self-discovery continues in the intrigue-ridden Paris court of Charles Stuart ... in a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising ... and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves...

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Title: Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss #1)
Author: Stephanie Perkins
Genre: Young Adult, Romance, Contemporary
Published: December 2010

My Rating: 5/5

Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris--until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all...including a serious girlfriend. 

But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss?
