“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” - the Holy Bible, 
  • 1 Corinthians 13:4–8


  1. Hey, be nice to Voldy! We are fellow Slytherins!
    (and Snapes, oh, I love Snapes!!)

    Writing Magic is a good book, I'm reading it now as my school subject "Creative Writing".

    Did you enter Kellie's giveaway as well?

  2. LOL! I'm kidding, I love Voldy ;)

    Hmnn, no. I'm not sure how those work, and I don't want to give out my adress, even in an email :/

    Thanks for commenting!

  3. I love your rules for commenting! Good spelling and grammar make posts MUCH easier to read.

    I've had "Artemis Fowl" and "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" recommended to me recently and I'm eager to read them! Also looking at reading "The Hunger Games"...

  4. Whoah! Are you serious? I LOVE ANNE SHIRLEY! I love the Anne Series too. I thought I was the only Anne lover, ha, nice to see I am not. XDD

    Awesome post!

  5. Thanks so much for joining us, Annika!

    Another Anne Fan! I always love it when girls know and love the Anne of the entire series - she's so much more than Anne of Green gables;)

  6. Yes! Did you know they give the books away for free in the Kindle store!? There is only, in fact, one Anne book I haven't read, which is Rilla of Ingleside. It's never in the library :/


comments make me smile. :)
