why i've been dying to read 'A Time to Rise' :: the Rise tour

*cues lights and confetti and giant cakes* 
*throws party*

On October 14th, many fans are going to loose sleep due to A Time To Rise and the fact that they pre ordered it. well ahem i would have had an arc but guess who was dumb and forgot that you get the book early. ha, me. i have suffered watching everyone read this beauty. 
I cannot contain my flails. I have been waiting for this book for nearly a year. It makes me so happy that it WILL BE HERE SO SOON AND I CAN HOLD IT IN HANDS AND TAKE PICTURES OF ALL THREE OF THEM TOGETHER AHHHHHHHHHHHH. I can force it in peoples faces and say ‘i have them all now read them or die!’
Ok, maybe I’m a little too excited? Yes. I can confirm over excitement. I’m already setting aside October 14th to read the whole book all day. bonus: Priceless the For King and Country movie comes out the same day so #bestdayofthemonth!!!! 

and now here are my reasons why i am dying to read a time to rise*. 
like can it be october 14th already?!?!?!?** 

*if you haven't read this series please i beg you beg you stop right now and go order these and binge read all night then come back because i spoil everything. 
**wait what if UPS doesn’t deliver it till night time. well….. guess it’ll be an all nighter. I’ll wait outside so it doesn’t get wet. there could be a freak thunderstorm. 

She's superwoman. Parvin= all the superheros mixed up and gah. She’s just amazing. She gave up her last year to hop a wall and help people no one likes. 
She got attacked by creepy wolves Like that’s scary, tortured, her hand cut off, and all this other crazy stuff. 
I couldn't climb scale an ice wall* with two hands yet she did it with one. She should have a movie (ok rabbit trail: THIS SERIES SHOULD HAVE MOVIE’S, LIKE WHY ISN’T THIS HAPPENING?!?!?!?!?!? ) A movie for each book and Parvin will be the best heroine EVERRRRRR. She’s up there in my top favorite characters and I can’t wait to see how her story ends. 

*ok, maybe she didn’t ‘scale’ it, but is was close. I have a hard time getting out of bed most mornings. Parvin is just amazing. 

One of my favorite parts in A Time to Speak (one out of like 9283409) is when Solomon sends Parvin those little notes while they're in the cargo containers. It makes me smile so large my mouth hurts. Ack. I need the next book. This ship must sailllllllllllll. #Hawkin#Solovin, or #BlackHawke
I loved the Jude and Parvin ship ( PB+ J according to Nadine’s awesome newsletter) but it’s still to soon to obsess over it. My heart is still broken. Gahhhhhh. We all need therapy don’t we? we need a ‘we are still crying over jude support group’. and a therapy circle + we can all bring our copies and take turns reading the happy parts.
*cries for jude* 
jude jude jude
I want jude backkkkkkkkkk

That cliffhanger left me like AHHHHHHHHH. 
I mean of course she’s still alive what would ‘a time to rise’ be like without parvin? um NOTHING. but that cliffhanger. All those cliffhangers. It’s like EVERY chapter was a cliffhanger. 

We need answers. 

They're coming towards her. or standing. Maybe he was running but is now taking a break. Could it be someone she knows? Is someone alive? Did they* actually not die? 
it looks like a man….. Is it Solomon? Skelly? Will they shoot her, hug her, kiss her, stab her? 
BUT I NEED ANSWERS** maybe I’m just overthinking this guys.  

*I wish i knew who ‘they’ was.
** I’m dying now. I need this book. my time to die*** will be now if i don’t have it soon. 
***ha see what i did there? yeah it was a terrible pun. 

I can’t wait to have all three and be able to put them somewhere pretty on my bookshelf for everyone to see. but not touch. one of them is signed so that means no touching. 

You can find Nadine:

     I am an adventurer, fusing authentic faith with bold imagination. I never received my Hogwarts letter, but rest assured I’m no Muggle (and would have been in Ravenclaw House, thank you very much.) This Harry Potter super-nerd has been known to eat an entire package of Oreos (family-size) by herself, and watches Fiddler on the Roof at least once a year. I write about brave living, finding purpose, and other worlds soaked in imagination. My dystopian trilogy (The Out of Time Series) challenged me to pursue shalom, which is now my favorite word (followed closely by bumbershoot.) When I’m not taste-testing a new chai or editing fantasy novels, me and my knight-in-shining armor (nickname: “hubby”) are out pursuing adventures.

You can get preorder swag here go do it. free bookmarks are the best. And preordering is the best. Just do it. 

have you read the out of time series? (go now cause they are amazing) how long have you been waiting for ‘A Time To Rise’? Gahhh I can’t wait my excitement. WHO ELSE WANTS TO THROW A PARTY AND CELEBRATEEEEEEEE?!?!?!?

purposeful pages :: september

Last month's purposeful pages went really well, plus we have some awesome new questions for you all to enjoy!!! Amanda and I are loving to see all the different answers and fun everyone has. 
So go down and HAVE SOME FUN with these new questions. 

What Exactly is Purposeful Pages?
Purposeful pages is a monthly link-up designed to unite bloggers on answering questions about life, blogging, the Bible, writing, and books.

no. 1 How have you been growing spiritually this month? What has God been teaching you?

no. 2 When you’re under stress, what actions do you take that help calm you and keep you sane?

no. 3 Who are some people that inspire you, and in what ways do they do that?

no. 4 Have you learned any tricks this past month that have helped you in your blogging journey?

no. 5 What is it about a book that makes you keep on reading? If you’re a writer, how can you  incorporate that into your own books?

no. 6 What’s a book cover (or album, movie, etc.) that describes your life right now, and why?

no. 7 Do you have a song in mind that you’d consider your current theme song? (Or a book, movie, TV show, etc.)

no. 8 If you’re a writer, how do you see yourself incorporated (most of the time unknowingly) inside your stories?

no. 9 How have you seen aspects of God’s character through other people recently?

no. 10 How long, on average, does it take you to put together a blog post? Are you the morning person working at 5 am, the afternoon blogger, or the night owl up until midnight trying to throw things together?

have you done purposeful pages? how do you like it? what questions are your favorite? 
does it take you a long time to answer some of these? do you have any questions you'd like to see in here???? let's talk.
