Review: Memories of Prophecies

Memories of Prophecies Memories of Prophecies by Davis Ashura
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was given the opportunity to read an ARC of this book, for which I am eternally grateful.

Before we delve into my thoughts - Dear Mr. Ashura, you had better be working on the next book because I'm going to need it immediately, please and thank you.

Now, for the book itself. What I adored about 'A Testament of Steel' was that it started off with a bang and kept going. This book was no different. The story picks up right where the first book left off, following our hero, Cinder, in his second year at the Third Directorate, and honestly, the story just never slows down. But in a really, really good way. Trust me. There is so much action in this book! AND all of the action is incredibly well written, to the point that I found myself audibly, literally gasping in response to what was happening on more than one occasion. (I MIGHT have screeched a few times as well while reading but there is no proof that it actually happened.)

All of the characters progressed so immensely in this book, not ridiculously so, but in a logical fashion, and I. Love. Character. Growth. !!!! It is one of the most frustrating things as a reader to have characters that are either stagnate, or progress too rapidly with no explanation as to why. This book had neither. The characters develop, but it makes sense how and why they are.

All in all, this book was an amazing addition to this series, and I cannot WAIT to see where the story goes next!

As Seen on Pinterest - The Retirement Survival Kit

One of my co-workers recently retired. I'm happy for her, because she really deserves it and everything...but I hate that she's leaving me!  I tried to bribe her into staying. I even threatened to lock her in the office and refuse to let her go.  Oddly, she didn't like that suggestion.  Since she was set on this notion of retirement, I immediately began scouring Pinterest for some sort of cute retirement gift for her. I knew I'd find something there, and I was not disappointed! Fairly soon after beginning my search, I came across the 'Retirement Survival Kit'.  (Photo from Pinterest - original pin link ) The pin was a link to an eBay auction, but of course my first thought on seeing it was "I can do that!". So I did.   I really should have taken a better photo of it. But this is all I managed to get. So, uh, ta da! I changed a few of the items around (the original link was from the UK, so some of the items weren't available)

Bofur Inspired Hat Pattern

 (Check out this handy dandy Pinterest ready graphic I made!) In The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, one of the dwarves (Bofur) wore this really, really awesome hat.  I fell in love with it, and decided to see if I could crochet my own version of it.  Well, first I scoured the internet, hoping for a pattern, and when I didn't find one THEN I decided to make my own.  And since I know there are others out there who would love to have this pattern, I'm posting it here! PLEASE NOTE: You may make items and sell them using this pattern, but PLEASE link back to the pattern and credit me as the source. It's only fair! :) The Bofur Inspired Hat Pattern You will need: Red Heart Super Saver (I forgot the actual color name, but it’s brown, okay?)

Sakura Season Bokksu

Do you like watching unboxing videos?  I do! I've also decided to try my hand at making a few. I uploaded my latest one to YouTube today, which you can watch below. I did an unboxing of the Sakura Season Bokksu, which is full of absolutely gorgeous (and delicious!) snacks from Japan.  Which snack would you want to try first? <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> Feel free to subscribe to my YouTube while you're there.
