Weekly Colorist Project: 9/22/21

While I love reading, it is not my only hobby. I realize that sometimes my love for reading outshines the rest of the hobbies I’m interested in. So, I’d like to start sharing some of my coloring projects every week. I’ll share my favorite four of the week. Typically, I’ll try to do two digital and two physical. However, I will go by the projects I’ve done for the week. If I did all digital, then all four will be digital and likewise for physical. Hope you enjoy! If you’re into coloring too, I’d love to see your projects!

Show me some of your projects!!!!

https://amzn.to/2VXwIsR

Blurb:

The finders keepers rule is getting out of hand. Things are going missing – objects that the misfit monsters need. This is causing disharmony between the misfit monsters, and everyone is on edge looking for someone to blame. That someone is Nit.

Nit, part vampire, part elf, with a little bit of shade, hasn’t been taking objects despite being blamed.

How can he solve this mystery, find the culprit before he’s locked away and charged with a crime he’s not committed?


**Age range: 8–12-year-olds depending on their reading ability. A good book to transition to chapter books. **


About Lily Rose:

Lily Rose has a big imagination, it is natural for her to write in the paranormal fantasy and science fiction genres for young readers. She had a lot of fun creating the fantastical shadow fairies for The Wing Thief, to show the value of forgiveness and personal growth. Lily Rose is also the author for the misfit monster world for The Jumble Sale, for middle-grade readers. Her values in recycling and upcycling, and developing a community where all help each other and work together were important to incorporate into the story.

Featured Book: Death’s Intern

Death's Intern (The Intern Diaries Book 1) by [D. C. Gomez]

Full disclosure. I just started this book the other day. I am really enjoying it though. It’s got a very strong start and gives a lot of intrigue that makes you want to just keep reading. I definitely recommend this book. In fact, I fully encourage anybody to pick this book up so we can read it together. For those of you follow my blog closely, you’ll probably recognize the author name. She was my Author Spotlight for last Saturday. If you’re interested in reading more about her and her books, feel free to follow the link to my blog.

What is a book you’re really enjoying lately?

Our Cause Blog Tour

◍ ◍ ◍ Blog Tour ◍ ◍ ◍

Our Cause by Jennifer Jane Jennings  

Blurb:

What if we made the monsters live in fear for a change?  What if the people they attack fought back?  What if they won?

Katerina Chase, a teenage karate student, and her best friend were attacked by eight men and left to die. They say it’s a miracle Kat survived.  She calls it penance.

Damon Knightly feels the same after shocking doctors by surviving his latest suicide mission in Afghanistan. Honourably discharged and sent home to Australia, he reluctantly takes the role of manager and head sensei at one of his family’s karate gyms. 

Damon stops feeling sorry for himself when he meets Kat and vows to help her.  He gives her a job and trains her in karate – but it isn’t enough.  People are still getting hurt.  Kat needs to help them, but more importantly, she needs to stop them from being hurt in the first place. 

They form ‘Our Cause’ to help people and catch their attackers but encounter monsters they didn’t expect – monsters hell-bent on stopping them.

  2. Breath of the Wildathon: This one actually takes place for an entire month. It starts on September 20th and ends on October 20th. I will place reminders in my Readathon News pieces from now until the end of the event. You can find all of the information and challenges on the link provided.

Do you know of any readathons going on? What are you most excited for?
