Quick Update

Sunday, March 29, 2015

     Hey, everyone! I just wanted to update you guys on a some new stuff happening around here. 

1. Instead of trying to look for my email and yada-yo, you can just email me here, right on my blog! You'll see a little gadget thingy on the side that says "Send Me An EMAIL!" You can just type in your email and a message and ta-da! You're message will be received by me. Really easy, but if you can't find it, all you have to do is scroll down a little bit, and you'l see the BLOG ARCHIVe. Underneath it, is the EMAIL THINGY. 

2. As you can see, this week's book review is on the home page. Why? Well, first off, it's easier for you guys to comment on one book rather than, you know. I know it's confusing, but when you post something on one tab, there is only on place to comment, so there will be comments on different books there. When I post stuff in the HOME TAB, there are separate pages for you guys to comment. I will still post the same book review in the BOOK REVIEW tab, but if you'd like to comment, it would be easier for all of us if you commented in the book's separate tab. (#IKnowIt'sReallyConfusing)

3. The situation with the CE's are exactly the same. I will post them in the Home page as well as in the #CurrentEvent tab. You should comment on the CE's own page. Honestly, the only reason why I'm putting them also in the #CurrentEvent tab is so that if you miss multiple CE's you can go back and read them all at once instead of trying to find them mixed in with other posts. 

4. I'm trying to put images on the side, but it doesn't seem to be working, so that's that. If the image thingy worked, I would be putting a picture of the MMGM logo, and some other random quotes or something. I don't have everything figured out yet, but I can't do much without the image thing working so... 

5. As a little fun thing, I was planing to do a playlist of some songs I like for holidays or something, but then again, I have nothing planned. (You know, Easter, Fourth of July, Christmas, etc) The music won't be holiday related, or anything, because some people don't celebrate that specific holiday, and the playlist should be for everybody. A fun mix of music should be enjoyable, right?

      That's about it, so yeah! See you guys later! :-) (Sorry if there are any errors. I was in a rush.)

Wide-Awake Princess

Saturday, March 28, 2015

     Hey everyone! Welcome to a new Monday (or Sunday, depending on when you're reading this...). Time for MMGM!

     I've been reading a lot of books lately (well, more than usual...of course) and I stumbled across a great book in the library. It's called the "Wide-Awake Princess" by E.D Baker. E.D Baker is a really inspiring author and really seems to enjoy writing fairytales. If you like fairytales...keep reading!  :-) 

     The Wide Awake princess is about your less-than-royal princess, Annie, and her somehow-more-than-gorgeous sister, Gwendolyn, who just happens to be Sleeping Beauty. Despite her family's precautions and banishing of spinning wheels, Gwennie accidentally pricks her finger on a spinning wheel that she gets as a gift on her sixteenth birthday. After that, everyone--and when I say everyone...I mean EVERYONE-- in the castle falls asleep. Well, other than Annie, whose christening gift was that no magic could touch her (...which explains why her sister is SOOO much prettier than she is, not to be judgmental or anything...) Annie then finds a way to escape the castle and embarks on a journey to find her Gwennie's true love to kiss her and wake the whole kingdom up again. 

     This story is just like Gwendolyn. It's somehow-more-than-fabulous and the way E.D Baker writes is just ARGH! I love it too much and don't know how to describe it. If you like fairytales...this is YOUR book. Well, actually, if you like fairytales or not, I suggest you read it anyway. Really good book here, people. 

     FYI, this book is in a series which also includes "Unlocking the Spell", "The Bravest Princess", and "A Princess in Disguise". 

     I'm not sure if the last book has come out yet, but I'm ordering it so... Um, if you guys want to hear more about this series, I *might* do another book review or two on this fab stuff. Let me know what you guys think and, well, yeah that's it. 



Um... A Bit Early, But...

Sunday, March 22, 2015

     Hi everyone! Um, I know it's Sunday, but I already put up the Book Review tab. I won't stop you from looking at it, but you're probably wondering why it's up too early. Here goes: 

-Um, I had to email Shannon Messenger about my link today, so that it 
would get into the list on Monday. 

-it's super weird, but without publishing the review, there would be no link 
for her to put on the list

-it's not a bad thing, really, you just get to see the review one day early 

-um, yeah that's it

-I know this is a really short post, but I just had to let you guys 
know what's going on because MMGM clearly says
"Marvelous Middle Grade Monday"

-*cough, cough* Monday *cough, cough*

-yeah I should probably leave the post before I embarrass myself...

-ahem. BYE!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen...Boys and Girls...

     Welcome to Cindy Reads A Lot! For those of you who don't know me, I'm an awesome blogger, enjoy reading, and like making book reviews. So, on this blog you will (probably) find...

-a HOME tab. Well it's obvious, but you need to have a HOME tab, with posts that you're too lazy to come up with names for. I mean, who doesn't have those days??? I hope it's not only me...

-QUOTE OF THE WEEK! Kinda self-explainatory, but if you insist I'll be posting a quote a week. I think it'll most likely be on Fridays, or something, but I'll work it out later. Pretty awesome, huh?

-BOOK REVIEW tab. Duh. Of course I have one! So I'll post, um, book reviews in the book review tab. I know. It's V-E-R-Y complicated. Don't judge... 

-This is kind of tied in with the book reviews, but I'll be doing Shannon Messenger's MMGM meme. (Marvelous, Middle Grade Monday) It's basically a list of links to other blogs that will be also doing book reviews. BTW, if you didn't figure it out yet, I'll be doing a book review every Monday. Hope I can keep it up. (A book a week--EEK!)

-ALL ABOUT ME tab, is well, all about me! Very interesting bio about me... 
*mysterious smile*

-CONTACT tab. Social media. Emails. Find it all there. :-)

-Um, I think that's about it. I'll keep you guys posted for more stuff. Bye!
