The Sunflower Blogger Award


Hello, all! I've been awarded this lovely award by Wild Horse! Thank you, Wild Horse.


~ The Rules ~

1.  Share 11 facts about yourself
2. Answer the 11 questions set by your nomination blogger- Nominate 11 bloggers
3.  Set questions for the nominated bloggers. 

Well, here are eleven facts 'bout me....

1. I have brown hair that rarely is ever down or anything but in a braid.

2. I have brown eyes.

3. I enjoy staying up all night.

4. If someone were to ask me on the spot what grade I was in, I probably wouldn't be able to answer without asking my mom.

5. I'm currently reading A Draw of Kings by Patrick W. Carr.

6. Excess travel scenes in books bother me. A lot. Y'know, like all the travel scenes in A Draw of Kings

7. My kitten has been ignoring me.

8. I am quite talented at changing baby diapers.

9. I am currently eating vegetable chowder.

10. I am writing a tragedy.

11. I sunburn. A lot.

Now for the questions asked of me....

Tea or Coffee?
Coffee. Unless there's an offer of Mountain Dew, then I'm torn between Mountain Dew and coffee.

Book or Movie?
Book.

Pasta or Pizza?
Since I'm allergic to both, I really can't choose. I don't remember really well what either tastes like real, so I really can't say which I like better.

Green or Purple?
Green.

Do you like Horses?
Somewhat. I would probably be more interested in them if I spent more time around them, but there aren't horses here, so that isn't an option.

Pets?
Currently we have four cats and three dogs. Don't really know if three of the cats are still alive, but really, really hoping.

Writing or Drawing?
Writing. I'm a horrid artist. 

Family?
Three sisters(one's Liberian), one brother. And a mum and dad, and my Liberian sister's son. And my cats and dogs, of course.

School or Homeschool?
Definitely Homeschool!

Hot or Cold?
Cold.

Dark or Light?
Light.

Now, I nominate....

I know it says to nominate eleven people, so I have nominated as many as I could think of that check my blog, and if I missed anyone, to add it up to eleven, anyone who wants to do this tag can.

Now for my questions....

1. What are you currently reading?

2. What book coming out soon are you most excited about?

3. Do you like Mountain Dew(if you don't, I'll still forgive you... maybe :P)

Merry Valentines, all!

Merry Valentines to y'all!
Again we reach the holiday celebrated by love—the holiday of a Saint that was tortured and beaten. The holiday also known as Singles Awareness Day, with the acronym of SAD.
I was surprised, when I woke up to this morning, to find upon my desk a Valentine(a mock Valentine, sadly)—the first I had received since public school(which would be Kindergarten). It was from a mysterious man; “My Secret Admirer”, he called himself(I have my own ideas who it is from).
Inside was the strangest confession of love I have found in this strange, romantic holiday.
I confess my love for this strange man who does not know that it is XOXOXO, not XYZXYZ, is not at all like the neck of a giraffe.
Especially since this man is my brother.
Yes, it is sort of awkward to get a Valentine from one's brother, but it carries a certain... specialness. Well, the memory does, at least. My love for my brother is more like a one of the heads of a two-headed snake.
Okay, maybe not that drastic. But I think you get the picture. :)

Also, I watched The End of Time. It totally broke my heart. So thus I finished David Tennant's Era of Doctor Who.
Also, my Mum's cousin is coming in March.
And A Draw of Kings(Patrick W. Carr) comes out in four days!!!!
And Shadow Hand(Anne Elisabeth Stengl) comes out in March(I think)
And Dark Sea Annals 3(Wayne Thomas Batson) comes out this fall.
And Raising Thendara(Christopher Hopper) comes out this spring/summer.
And Dream Treaders(Wayne Thomas Batson) comes out this spring/summer.
And Viral Execution(Amanda L. Davis) comes out sometime in the next few months.
And Anne Elisabeth Stengl is going to reveal the cover for Golden Daughter on the 24th!
Lots of books.
And my birthday is coming up(as in April 27). I'll be turning thirteen.
Now comes the moment for the heartfelt part of this blogpost.
I just want to say thank you. To all of you. Your support ever since I joined the blogger world has been invaluable, and you are all martyrs for putting up with my short, and sometimes nonexistent blog post.
You're all fantasic. Brilliant. * salutes *

Merry Valentines!
-Ryebrynn


P.S. Jake was pretending to be under the guise of my “secret admirer”. He was confessing my admirer's love for me, not his. Merry Valentines!
