Recently - 7

Hello everyone!

It's time for another Recently! :)




Reading
I just started the first Sherlock Holmes book but it's the second one I've read...A Study in Scarlet. It's good already! I love the Sherlock Holmes books, they are so brilliant. I enjoyed The Hound of the Baskervilles immensely so hopefully this book will be just as good!

Writing 
Illuminate, the second book in my Star Trek fanfiction series. My original goal for the book was 5,000 words, but since I joined MyWriteClub and started working on it from there and doing word sprints with some friends, I've gone above and beyond my original goal. It's insane how much I've written through that! I can't rave about it enough! Go check out MyWriteClub, you won't regret it! Seriously! (And if you join hey I'm Lydia_Dyslin)

Listening To 
I have been quite obsessed with Echosmith for the past week. You know, that band that did the song "Cool Kids" (which I actually don't like very much XD) I like how the band members are all siblings...I may be getting just a leetle obsessed. Stop groaning.

Watching
ALL I HAVE BEEN WATCHING BY MYSELF IS VOYAGER AND I'M HALFWAY THROUGH THE LAST SEASON AND I JUST CAN'T HELP ME.
Aside from Star Trek I've also been watching a lot of Murder, She Wrote with my mom and Ellery Queen with my dad. I love Jessica Fletcher, she's so cute. XD I also really like Ellery Queen, I wish it had run longer. I only have 12 episodes left! :( Fortunately for me Murder, She Wrote has 12 seasons so I think I'm sorted for now. XD


Okay, that's all I have for you guys today! Thanks so much for reading! :)

Dear...

Hey guys!

So a looong time ago Adi made a post called "Dear...", where she wrote mini letters to her family or friends or whoever she felt like writing them to. And I thought that was a great idea, so I decided to do it, too. Hope you guys enjoy!

so basically I tried making a picture for this about a million times but my computer is being stupid and wont let me upload it so here is a pic of Georgie Henley :P


Dear Joanna, 
Sure, you get on my nerves sometimes. But you are the best little sister anybody could ask for. You are not only family but also my best friend - you know absolutely everything about me. Thanks for being so awesome.

Dear Adam Young, 
I just wanted you to know you were my first celebrity crush. Also thank you for showing society you can still be a successful singer and be open about your faith. And your Instagram is #goals.

Dear friends,
I've known you guys since 3rd grade and some of you even longer than that, and you guys stuck with me through everything, and didn't say I was weird or a geek because of my love of Star Trek and Narnia and I even got one of you addicted to it (or you got me even more addicted than I already was I don't know at this point). YOU GUYS ARE THE ULTIMATE HOMIES COME HERE GROUP HUG

Dear random old guy dressed up as Heidi's grandfather at Storyland who yelled at me when I was four years old for moving around some fake wooden plates in that cabin when I was having the best time ever, 
I never thought I'd forgive you for that. It took a long time, but I have gotten over it. That burden has been lifted off your shoulders. You're welcome.

Dear parents, 
You are AWESOME!! I love you so much. Best parents ever. :DDDDD

Dear Chris Tomlin, 
You put on a good concert. Also, good choices with those other bands that came before you. I would have never listened to Tenth Avenue North otherwise.

Dear two teenage girls sipping Starbucks at that tourist stop in Vermont, 
You guys actually made an effort to look nice. I wanted to tell you that but was too shy. Your outfits were really cute, and the nerd glasses tho. You have your lives together, good job.

Dear Starbucks, 
Just wanted to let you know your green tea milkshake thing is gross, you should take it off the menu. However your strawberry smoothie and pumpkin spice mocha latte are spot-on.

Dear Lydia Winters, 
Yo since we are basically twins we should hang sometime. You look good in a beanie.

Dear Sqaishey and Stampy, 
You are the people who got me into Minecraft. You are so fun and cheerful all the time. One more thing Stampy, I have that comment you replied to hung up on my wall. No it's not creepy, what are you talking about? xD

Dear girl that also takes music lessons with my music teacher and who looks nice, 
Hopefully someday I'll get up the courage to talk to you. You are an awesome singer and your hair looks really cute in a pixie cut.

Dear Fraser, 
Your laugh is really cute, your hair is always on point, you always manage to make me smile (especially on your livestreams) and did I mention your laugh is really cute???

Dear Squig, 
You are one of my favorite YouTubers and you are the type of person I feel like I would want to be friends with if I knew you from church or something. Thanks for watching my YouTube video, it seriously meant a LOT to me. :D

Dear Georgie Henley,
You definitely aren't my role model anymore, I'm sorry to say. But I believe you are still a sweet girl with a kind heart who is doing what you believe is right. You play THE BEST Lucy and you are absolutely gorgeous. Don't forget that!!!

Okay that post was really long but it was super fun to write. Hope you guys enjoyed it! :D

A Question of Honor - Cover Reveal



Hello everyone!

I have a very exciting post to share with you all! Today is the cover reveal for my friend Jesseca's book, A Question of Honor. It looks absolutely amazing and the cover is breathtaking! But first, an image so you can't just look at it in your feed and you actually have to click on the post and feel the suspense...;)

yeah its edmund
Drumroll please...


Here it is!! Doesn't it look amazing?!

And now, here's some more about the actual book itself:

A Question of Honor
Releases March 3rd, 2017

A man. A child. A war.
When German soldiers invade France during World War II, young Joyanna's perfect world is shattered. In the hands of those who hate her, she battles to comprehend why people can be so ruthless and cold to those whom they have never met.
David Sullivan, pilot in the Royal Air Force, was certain he would never hate, but a painful loss forces him to either reconsider or do the inconceivable - forgive. He is suddenly challenged by the realization that following God's will is not easy, but most important. With the lives of freedom-fighters relying on him, he must learn the difficult lesson that he is not in control, but merely one who must surrender his heart of obedience to the One greater.
A sudden turn of events lands Joyanna and David in the same country - but for far different reasons. When their paths cross, David finds he must make a decision that will affect them both for the rest of their lives.
Will he chose vengeance, or will he let his life be ruled by a higher standard? A standard of Honor.

About the Author


Jesseca is an 18-year-old daughter, sister, and a child of God. Her days are spent reading, cooking, spending time with siblings, or playing piano. And writing, of course! At an early age words fascinated her, and her love for the printed page has only grown. She lives with her parents and seven siblings in the sunny state of Kansas, and she's convinced there's no place like home.

Well, that's all for today's post everyone! Thanks for reading!
