A Month In Review: September 2016

month-in-review-spt-2016

Well, school is back. So things have been very busy for the last month. I haven’t had as much time for art recently, but I still got several pieces done that I’m really happy with. I did some palette requests on Tumblr, which was fun, and I got all the Blue Team redesigns done and redrew the height chart! I also started an Ask Blog for the characters so I can work on character development/consistency. You can find it here and leave questions if you like!

things-i-watched

things-watched-sept-2016

We watched several things this month. My sister’s friend came round fairly early in the month and as usual she brought her Studio Ghibli collection. This time we watched Laputa: Castle in the Sky. It was good, with a lot of cool animation and stuff. Not my one of my favourite Ghibli films, but still a lot of fun and worth watching.

We borrowed Batman Begins from our neighbors and watched that. I’ve never watched a Batman film before so that was fun. It was good, and quite Batman-y.

My sister got Iron Man for her birthday, so we finally watched that! It was great.

We also started watching the tv series, Victoria, which is about Queen Victoria (if that wasn’t obvious). It’s very interesting and well made.

things-i-played

games-played-sept-2016

This section isn’t going to be a permanent fixture, but I played enough games this month I thought it was worth giving it it’s own section. After drawing fan art I succumbed to playing Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, since we own it and there was a free save slot. I haven’t played strategy games in a while so that was pretty fun. It’s pretty hard too though.

I got a new phone this month! And I can play games on it 😀 (what do you mean that’s not very important). Most importantly Pokemon Go. Woo! It’s fun. And also makes walking fun. So that’s good. Yay for exercise (and Pokemon)

I also got the Love Live School Idol Festival game. It’s a lot of fun. My sister has it too so we can nerd over it together.

things-i-read

books-read-sept-2016

I finished the Ascendance Trilogy, which I started a long while ago. It was good!

I also finally got round to reading The Hidden Oracle, (which I finished literally like a week before book two was released :P). It was a lot of fun. Lots of good Rick Riordan-ishness.

I didn’t write any blog posts this month.

elsewhere-on-the-internet

Fandom Stuff:

We got some more episodes of Steven Universe. Then it went on hiatus again. But at least we have some shorts to look forwards to!

Moana got yet another trailer.

RWBY got a character short! It’s amazing. So much hype for season 4

Other Internet Stuff:

next-month

Wow, there is so much stuff I’m hyped for in October!

RWBY Volume 4 begins on the 22nd! The character short released recently has me super excited for that!

Haikyuu!! Season 3 Begins!

The final Ruby Redfort book comes out! Hopefully it’ll be good!

There’s Halloween as well of course.

My Little Pony Season 6 ends! I haven’t been all that impressed with this season so far, but from what people have said about the leaked first part the finale will be amazing.

So that’s what I’ve been up to in September! Have you watched, read or played any of the things I did this month? Anything you think I should try? What are you looking forwards to in October? Hope you all have a great month!

A Month in Review: January 2016

Month in Review - Jan. 2016

Well, it’s a new year, and I have a new laptop! It’s wonderful. The year’s been pretty good so far. So let’s see what’s been going on.

I’ve been fiddling around with a bunch of new techniques and so on art wise, which has been fun and super helpful (finally I know how to do gradients in Sai) So while I haven’t gotten all that much art done, what I have done I’m really happy with.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Things I Watched

things watched jan. 2016

I watched more contemporary anime this month. First I watched Kimi Ni Todoke (which I actually started in December), and it’s very sweet.

Fairy Tail Zero began at the beginning of the month! It’s absolutely fantastic. I loved that spin off in the manga and the anime version captures it perfectly. (also the theme song is my favourite Fairy Tail opening yet)

I started watching Haikyuu!! with my younger brother. It’s about volleyball mostly, which is actually something I know next to nothing about, but it’s good anyway.

I also started watching a new anime, Prince of Stride, which is also about sports, though this one being about something that’s basically parkour relays (which is cool. Although apparently it’s not a real sport.) While it’s not technically particularly original, I love the characters so I’m watching it anyway. (Riku is just. the best thing.)

Movies wise, we watched Insurgent. It was good. Not nearly as fantastic as Mockingjay, but still good.

I also finally got to watch Inception, which I’ve been wanting to watch for like a few years but never got to till now (which is weird since we actually own it), with my dad. We’ve actually only watched about a third of it so far but I wanted to include it anyway. It’s been freaking amazing so far.

Things I Read

books read jan. 2016

I got a fair bit of reading done this month. I read a lot of Sherlock Holmes, and some of the old Naruto manga.

I also started reading the Rave Master manga, which is what Mashima wrote before he did Fairy Tail. It’s actually really good, and less cliche than I thought it would be.

I read some comic books for the first time, including an old Spider man comic, which wasn’t particularly good; and much newer Batgirl comic, which was considerably better.

Non-comics wise, I read:

  •  Darkness Reigns, the first part in Jill Williamson’s new fantasy series, which was good and very unique, if a little darker than my usual reading.
  • Castle in the Air, the sequel to Howl’s Moving Castle, which was quite different from the first book and quite good.
  • The latest Ruby Redfort book, which was considerably better than Book Four but perhaps not as good as the first three books.
  • Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer, the first book in Rick Riordan’s new Norse-Mythology-Based series, which was good. I don’t know nearly as much Norse mythology as I do Greek (which is weird considering I’m actually Scandinavian), but it was still fun.

On the Blog

I posted about my Top Ten Anime I watched in 2015. No prizes for guessing what came first.

Elsewhere on the Internet

Fandom Stuff:

As mentioned,the Fairy Tail Zero anime began, and it’s been fantastic so far. In the Fairy Tail manga, the fandom angst continues.

The second season of Akagami No Shirayuki-Hime also began, as well as the above mentioned anime Prince of Stride.

My Little Pony is confirmed to be returning some time in Spring, and we got a teaser clip.

Steven Universe had another Steven Bomb, which was amazing as usual, and then disappeared again.

RWBY continues, and the season is getting considerably darker and more depressing than any of the previous seasons.

Marissa Meyer’s next book, Heartless, got a cover reveal and excerpt

Next Month

The final book in the Lunar Chronicles series, Stars Above, comes out tomorrow!

The Gravity Falls finale airs on the 15th, after a full series marathon and a bonus feature thing.

So that’s what I’ve been up to so far this year. How’s your year been so far? Have you seen or read any of the things I did this month, and is there anything you think I should try? What are you looking forwards to in February?

Infinity Dreams Award and Curious Wren Bookish Tag

I have two tags to do today (one’s referred to as an award but it’s more like a tag).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

First, I mentioned in my last post that a new blog, Curious Wren, has opened, and among other things is hosting a tag to celebrate. The questions for this one:

1. What was the last book you read, and would you recommend it?

The last book I read as of starting to write this post was The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan, and yes I’d totally recommend it. Read the 9 books that come before it though!

2. Describe the perfect reading spot.

There are so many different ways it’s impossible to just choose one perfect one. A couple of nice ideas I’ve seen:

up a tree can be a surprisingly nice place as well, if you can get comfortable enough. (Why yes, I have read books up trees on multiple occasions)

3. Favorite book beverage? Tea? Coffee? Hot chocolate? Tears of your readers?

Tea, if anything. I haven’t drunk much tea in a while but I do like it.

4. Share favorite quotes from four books.

A tragic event occurred last Tuesday. Mrs. James Frewen came to tea and there was no pie in the house. Felicity has not yet fully recovered. – The Golden Road by L M Montgomery

“Captain?”
“Yeah?”
“Do you think it was destiny that brought us together?”
He squinted and, after a thoughtful moment, shook his head. “No. I’m pretty sure it was Cinder. – Cress by Marrisa Meyer

“A popular song?”
“Yes. One that the feeble-minded can remember the words of and those ignorant of music can whistle or sing.” – The Patchwork Girl of Oz by L Frank Baum

I can’t think of a fourth quote that I can remember correctly.

5. What is your most loved fantasy read? Dystopia? Contemporary? Sci-fi? Classic?

Fantasy: The Chronicles of Narnia by C S Lewis

Dystopia: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (not so much the sequels though)

Contemporary: The Revised Life of Ellie Sweet by Stephanie Morrill

Sci-fi: The Lunar Chronicles by Marrissa Meyer

Classic: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

6. List three authors you’ve collected the most books from.

Caroline Lawrence – 16 books

L Frank Baum – 16 books

Anne Digby – 11 books

7. What are your thoughts on magic in literature?

Depends on how it’s handled. If it’s witchcraft or something similar, I don’t like it unless it’s only used by villains and isn’t described in great detail. I’m usually fine with fairy tale type magic, or if the ‘magic’ is something innate or creator-given, like bending in Avatar: The Last Airbender.

8. What types of book covers capture your imagination most strongly? Feel free to include images.

I love almost all kinds of covers. Some of my favourite covers:

9. Mention the first book character that comes to mind. Elaborate on this.

Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables by L M Montgomery. Perhaps because she was one of my first favourite book characters. I love Anne and her imaginative, quirky and flowery personality and way of speaking. I’ve read every Anne book there is and loved all of them.

10. Do you lend out your books? Or is that the equivalent to giving away your babies?

Although I’d never refer to my books as my babies, I won’t usually lend them out unless it’s to someone I know I can trust. I do have a couple of books I wouldn’t lend out under any circumstances, like my copy of Anne of Green Gables.

Anne full

This is the copy of Anne of Green Gables I have.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Next, Write For the King tagged me for the Infinity Dreams Award. (My first time being officially tagged! 😀 ) Thank you!

The rules:

-Thank the person who nominated you.

-Answer their 11 questions

-Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 questions.

The questions:

Who is your favorite villain (either the one whom most love to hate or the one whom you actually cheer for)?

Hmm… This is a hard one. Maybe Levanna from the Lunar Chronicles. She’s wonderfully evil, but everything she does has a reason. (not always a completely sane reason, but still a reason)

Do you have a favorite food, and what is it?

I don’t really have one favourite food. Chocolate’s always nice though.

So if you had to choose one element (fire, water, air, or earth), which one would you choose and why?

Water. I love rain, and the ocean, and swimming, and gahhh. *flails uselessly* Am I seriously fangirling about water? Oh well.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Not sure. I love Hungary for holidays, but I’m not sure I’d want to live there all year round.

Who is your favorite supporting character (movies, TV, or books)?

Darn it this is even harder than the villain question. There’s so many. I’ll just list some of the first that come to mind.

Jellal from Fairy Tail, Brother Juniper from the Mistmantle Chronicles, Marvel’s Hawkeye, Clancy from Ruby Redfort, and Regidor from the Dragon Keeper Chronicles.

What is one interesting or weird quirk about you?

I’m allergic to cut grass. My feet get swollen and itchy if I spend too long in recently mowed fields or lawns.

What is your favorite topic to learn about?

Art, I guess. I like to learn about pretty much anything though.

I think all of you write, so who is your favorite character that you have created?

I remember having difficulty with this one last time I did a tag like this. At the moment it’s probably Gwen or Caelan, for completely different reasons which I can’t be bothered to go into now.

If you could bring one person from the past to the present, whom would you bring?

I don’t know. The first person that comes to mind is Arthur Conan Doyle, but I think he’d mostly just be irritated. (apparently he once said he’d be disappointed if the only thing he was remembered for was Sherlock Holmes, and to be honest I have no idea what else he did or wrote XD)

You can jump into any one fictional world. Which one would you choose?

Equestria. (the world where My Little Pony is set, for those of you who don’t know) Probably not most people’s first choices, but it’s such a gorgeous, peaceful world and it would be lovely to visit.

What is your favorite drink?

Hot chocolate, generally speaking.

I can’t think of eleven people to tag who I know hasn’t done it before, so I tag anyone who feels like doing it. I’ll leave the same questions I did for the Liebster Award since no one grabbed it and I don’t have time to make new ones:

1. If you could spend a day with any fictional character, who would it be and what would you do?

2. What was the last movie you watched?

3. Do you have a favourite super hero, and if so, who?

4. Tea or coffee? (or neither?)

5. What’s the weirdest fact you’ve learnt while researching something (for writing, school, whatever)?

6. What’s your favourite ever book/book series?

7. Are you in any fandoms, and if so, which ones?

8. What’s your favourite place you’ve visited?

9. Author you’ve read the most of?

10. Strangest food you’ve ever eaten?

11. What was (or is) your favourite children’s show?

Top Ten Tuesday: All Time Favourite Authors

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week it’s my all time favourite authors, so without further ado:

1. C S Lewis The Chronicles of Narnia were what first got me into reading, so I have a lot to thank this guy for. 🙂

2. Marissa Meyer As I’ve said many times before, Marissa’s Lunar Chronicles are amazing. Definitely one of the best YA series I’ve ever read.

3. L M Montgomery Anne of Green Gables was another one of my favourite books as a child, (I read the whole series several times) and her other books are mostly good too.

4. Lauren Child. Lauren is one of the best children’s authors out there in my opinion, and I still enjoy reading her books. (Yep, a 16 year old still enjoys Charlie and Lola and Ruby Redfort. Deal with it)

5. John Flanagan Ranger’s Apprentice is amazing, and Brotherband is almost equally so. I love coming back to them over and over again.

6. Laura Ingalls Wilder Little House on the Prairie and the other books in the series are another old favourite.

7. Roald Dahl Yet another childhood favourite. I remember reading pretty much every one of his books at some point.

8. Rick Riordan. One of the authors I discovered more recently. The Percy Jackson books were very addictive.

9. M I McAllister The only reason she’s so far down this list is because I’ve only read the Mistmantle Chronicles and I have no idea how her other books measure up. Otherwise she’d be right up after Mr. Lewis (who gets automatic first place for introducing me to Fantasy)

10. L Frank Baum This man’s books are absolutely delightful. I always go back to the Oz books when I’m sad.

So, that’s it. Sorry if this post feels rushed, I have a lot of things to get done today. Who are your favourite authors?

Top Ten Tuesday: All Time Favorite Books Since 2012

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Yes, it’s a day late. Again. I really need to get more organized. Anyway, this week I will be listing my absolute favorite books/series that I read for the first time in the last three years. I can’t usually remember exactly when I read a book unless it was recently, so I might accidentally cheat. Now, on to the list!

1. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. These books are so Amazing! If you haven’t read them, go and read them now.

2. Urchin and the Rage Tide by M I McAllister. The Mistmantle Chronicles is one of the best series I have ever read. This book was a fantastic close to the series. I wish there were more, but it’s probably for the best she stopped where she did or things might have gotten a little tedious (as super long series usually do)

3. Catch Your Death by Lauren Child. The fact that I read this book two and a half times in a row speaks for itself, I think. Best book in the series so far, in my opinion.

4. Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan. This series. Probably the most fun I’ve gotten out of a series in a while. 😀

5. The Oz Books by L. Frank Baum. This series makes me so happy. 🙂 It’s innocent, funny and really quite cleverly done. I don’t even mind the inconsistencies, since the reason for it is that he sometimes changed things so his readers would enjoy it more.

6. The Dragon Keeper Chronicles by Donita K Paul. This was a lovely fantasy series. I read them super-duper fast, despite having to buy every single one to read them. The characters are fantastic, although the plot is somewhat forgettable. (maybe that’s just because I read them so fast though)

7. The Royal Ranger by John Flanagan. Another one I read several times in a row. This book was awesome! Although it seemed less like a series finale and more like the opening for a spin-off series, I enjoyed it thoroughly.

8. Jo’s Boys by Lousia May Alcott. (there weren’t any nice covers for this one) I’ve enjoyed pretty much any book by Louisa May Alcott, and this was a lovely conclusion to the Little Women series. I liked it about as much as the first one, and that’s saying a lot 🙂

9. The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins. This series was amazing. Although the ending was too depressing in my opinion 😦

10. The Lord of the Rings by J R R Tolkien. My dad read me this series before we watched the films together, and they were amazing. By the way, if you find it hard to get through reading them, I highly recommend listening to them instead. I find it’s much easier to get through that way.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books on my Winter TBR

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

So, this week’s list is of the top ten books I’m planning on reading this Winter. Not sure there are ten but we’ll see. As usual if you click on the book cover it’ll link you to the goodreads page for the book. So:

1. Feel the Fear by Lauren Child. Like I said last week, I’ve been with this series since the beginning and I can’t wait to read this one. 😀

2. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. I promise this list will not be made entirely of my sequels list from last time. I really need to read this book though. As soon as possible.

3. Cress by Marissa Meyer. I’d like to read this one as soon as possible after reading Scarlet. That’s pretty much all I have to say concerning this book.

4. Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan (wow that’s a long title.) See I told you this wasn’t all going to be from my sequels list. My best friend has been begging me and begging me to read this series and for some reason I kept putting it off. But I finally read The Lighting Thief the other day and I loved it. I already said how much I love fairytales, and I’m just as obsessed with Greek Mythology. This series is just epic. Wait a sec, I’ve raved about this long enough. Let’s just say I really want to read this book. Moving on…

5. Any book by Melanie Dickerson (excluding The Healer’s Apprentice cause I’m squeamish). This is what’s going on my Christmas wishlist so this is what I’m putting here. The only reason I chose The Captive Maiden to represent this is because I adore the cover. (seriously, Look at that dress!) Like I already said I love fairy tales. And fairy tale retellings are awesome.

6. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I’ve been eyeing this one cautiously for some time now, and recently my sister watched in school for English class. She loved it, and now she refuses to give me a moment’s peace until I’ve either watched the film or read the book. So there we go. (not that I mind. I would’ve read it anyway :))

7. Scorpion Mountain by John Flanagan. The casts of Brotherband and Rangers Apprentice team up and go to Arrida. (note: I spelled this wrong last time. sorry.) Awesomeness ensues. That’s basically what this book looks like it’s going to be. I am excited. 😀 😀 😀

8. The Ordinary Princess by M.M. Kaye. So this was mentioned by various people over at the NaNoWriMo website and it sounded interesting, so I’m giving it a go. I could only get hold of it on CD though.

9. Predator’s Gold by Philip Reeve. Um yeah. What can I say. I actually have no idea where the plot’s supposed to be heading for this book, but whatever.

10. Inkspell by Cornelia Funke.

Well, I did reach 10 after all. So yeah. Oh by the way, I finished the first draft of Dark of War. It’s insanely short though. And the plot is waaaaay to straight forward. But there we are. It shall be edited! In January.

Oh yeah, and if you want to join in with Top Ten Tuesdays you can click on the image up top and it’ll take you there.

Top Ten Tuesday: Sequels I Can’t Wait to Get

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

So, it’s Tuesday again! This time it’s the Top Ten Sequels I can’t wait to get. There aren’t actually that many sequels I do want to get just now, but these are the ones I do. If you want more info on the book, click on the cover image and it should link you to the relevant goodreads page. So, here we go:

1. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. I read Cinder the other day (which was my first YA I do believe. Yes I first read a YA when I was sixteen :P) and I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel.

2. Feel the Fear by Lauren Child. I’ve been with the Ruby Redfort series ever since Look into My Eyes came out waaay back in… 2010 I think. Can’t wait for the next installment 😀 (wow I’m gonna be eighteen by the time this series ends.)

3. Scorpion Mountain by John Flanagan. Another series I’ve been with since pretty much the beginning. I’m so excited for this one We’re going to see Evanlyn again!! (probably) And go to Arridi! *jumps up and down in excitement* Evanlyn, by the way, is from John Flanagan’s other series, Rangers Apprentice, which is set in the same world as Brotherband. (that’s a very epic series. You should go and read it now if you haven’t already) Anyway, moving on…

4. Cress by Marissa Meyer. Yes, I haven’t actually read Scarlet yet but I’m still looking forwards to this one. Especially since Rapunzel is one of my favourite fairy tales. 😀

5. Wednesdays in the Tower by Jessica Day George. After reading Tuesdays at the Castle, which turned out way better than I thought it would, Wednesdays is likely to be another fun read.

6. Predator’s Gold by Philip Reeve. Honestly I have no idea where the plot is headed for this book, but I’m looking forwards to reading it all the same.

7. A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L’Engle. I have no idea how I’m going to get my hands on a copy of this and the rest of the books, but I will eventually. I Loved Wrinkle in Time and Wind in the Door and I NEED MORE. Annoyingly this book is rather rare in the UK 😦

8. Inkspell by Cornelia Funke. Honestly I’m scared to read this book. I read Inkheart about four months ago and loved it, and I do want to know what happens next. But… Unfortunately I know (thanks to some idiot screaming about it on the web) that my favourite character is going to die. So… I’m scared. But I did just order it from the library, so it will be read.

So, not quite ten, but there we are. If you would like to participate in Top Ten Tuesdays, you can click on the Top Ten Tuesdays sign and it’ll take you to the page with info on how to take part. And I’ll be back here on Friday! (hopefully) Bye 🙂

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I wish could get their own book

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

So, this is a new thing I’ll be doing round here. It’s hosted by The Broke and Bookish and you can find out more here. This week’s theme is characters I wish could get their own book, so here are my top ten characters I wish could get their own book (surprise surprise XD) So here we go:

1. Bradley Baker from the Ruby Redfort series by Lauren Child.

Not sure this guy counts since he’s actually dead in the Ruby Redforts, but I would love to read a book about his previous adventures that are constantly being referred to. He sounds like he was a really cool guy. 😀

2. Almondflower from The Mistmantle Chronicles by M. I. McAllister.

This is basically my cheating choice since what I really want is a sequel series about Urchin’s kids, but since they don’t even exist yet at the end of the series I chose the youngest character, Almondflower, instead.

3. Brother Fir from The Mistmantle Chronicles by M. I. McAllister (can you tell I really want another Mistmantle book?)

Judging by several statements in Urchin and the Raven War, this guy had a pretty epic backstory. If I couldn’t have a sequel for Mistmantle, a prequel about Brother Fir would be nice. (preferably with cameos from kid Crispin, Padra, and so on.)

Brother Fir.

Brother Fir.

4. Josie Brooke from Jo’s Boys by Louisa May Alcott

I really want to know how Josie’s theatrical career went after Jo’s Boys, and I think it could make a great book. Also she’s one of my favorite characters from the Little Women series and I want to spend more time with her.

5. Reepicheep from The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis

This awesome mouse evidently had all sorts of adventures before we meet him in Prince Caspian, and I’d love to read about them.

reepicheep, probably the most awesome mouse I have ever read.

Reepicheep, probably the most awesome mouse I have ever read.

6. Mrs. Emily Mumby from the Larklight trilogy by Philip Reeve

Any of the more eventful of her previous existences is sure to make an interesting story.

7. Regidor from The Dragon Keeper Chronicles by Donita K. Paul

Another great character I want to spend more time with. I’m also interested to see what adventures he and Gilda got up to after DragonLight.

8. Ssilissa from the Larklight trilogy by Philip Reeve

Of all the characters from this trilogy, Ssilissa is the one who’s adventures after Mothstorm I’m most interested in. I’m not begging for a Larklight sequel, but if there was one, her story would be the one I’d be most excited for.

9. Angela the Herbalist from The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini

Again, not a book I’d be desperate for, but I would be interested in her adventures before or after we meet her in Eragon.

10. Polychrome from the Oz series by Frank L. Baum

I love everyone in the original Oz books (except Button Bright. He just annoys me), but Polychrome is the only one of my favourites who didn’t get a book that revolved around her. If someone wrote a book about her now though, I wouldn’t read it, since I’m too much in love with the world of the original Oz books to stand reading an Oz book by anyone other than Baum.

Polychrome the Rainbow's Daughter

Polychrome the Rainbow’s Daughter

So that’s my Top Ten! Hopefully I didn’t do too badly for my first one. If you would like to join in on Top Ten Tuesday check out the link at the beginning.
