Just some random things

Ok, first of all, for you people who subscribed to my newsletter, I appreciate the fact that you're actually reading it, but please, instead of replying in email, could you comment?! Thanks.

Yesterday was my horse-back riding lesson, and I finally cantered!!! I was riding Cleo, a pony, and my instructor, Robin, asked me if I wanted to canter on the rail, and of course I said yes! I was a little nervous at first, but then I got used to it. For some reason, Cleo kept on going really close to the rail, so i almost scraped my leg! Thankfully, I didn't.

Thanks for reading!

Book Review! (kinda)

Ok, here's my first book review.....

The Lightning Thief

This book is really good and action packed. It's about a boy named Percy Jackson who finds out that he is a demigod ( half-human, half-god ). His father is Poseidon, god of the seas. Because of the fact the monsters are chasing him ( monsters like the Minotaur, etc. ), he goes to Camp Half-Blood. He finds out that his best friend, Grover, is a satyr. Big surprise. Then, when Percy and his mother, Sally Jackson, go on vacation, the Minotaur chases them, and Percy is forced to go to Camp Half-Blood. One thing though, his mom is a mortal, and can't go through the gate to the camp. Find out what happens to Percy and his friends.

Dreamdark: Blackbringer

This book is about a faerie named Magpie Windwitch who travels with crows: Bertram, Swig, Maniac, Pigeon, Pup, and Calypso. When a mysterious devil escapes its bottle, leaving the Djinn King's seal, and some human slippers behind, Magpie quickly tracks the devil across the world.
One thing though, the book is set in the old times, so they say things like: Lasses and lads, Skive,
irkmeat skiving murks, etc.

Thanks for reading!
