meet my MC wrap-up // ft. tons of amazing characters (and my MC Aionladon)!

It’s time to meet everyone’s MCs!

Back at the beginning of January, I created a linkup for writers. Basically, it’s a list of 10 questions for bloggers to answer about their MC (main character) — or any character they wanted — in a post, then link back to mine so I could compile a list. Well, now the time has come to share that list with the world!! I hope you all enjoy meeting your fellow writers’ incredible characters.

And after I share all your posts, I’m going to introduce you to my MC, Aionladon Rynael!

(If you want to do the linkup now, feel free to use my questions/link back to my post, but I won’t be sharing it, so it’ll function more like a tag from now on.)

The Lightest, Heaviest Things by Weez Phillips // book review

Weez released her debut novel on August 1, and I am so happy.

Her blog is delightful, the letters she sends me are such fun to read, and I love her quirky honesty and unexpected descriptions. So when she sent me an ARC to review, you can imagine my joy.

*pretends I actually read it before the release date*

I’ve read it now, anyway (: It was marvelous, I enjoyed every bit of it, and I can’t wait to tell you why.

But first, here’s a bit about the book:

The Lightest Heaviest Things by [Weez Phillips]
cover designed by Clara

 “The trees are tall, and the giants are not actually taller than the trees. You told me that the giants aren’t real. I don’t know if they’re real. They look real, to me, but they also don’t seem real. You don’t see them, either.”

Peri, alone in her house, has spent a lot of time observing the silent, strangely sad giants that move just on the edge of her vision. They never speak. They never laugh. They are always alone. Drowning in her own loneliness, Peri doesn’t think much about where the giants came from, or what they might need from her.

When Peri’s best friend Wink starts seeing the giants too, though, they decide that they need to find out why the giants are so sad and alone. This sets them off on a quest that neither of them is quite prepared for, through the woods and up the mountain.

Magic, melancholy, and myth collide in their lives, showing them a world both worse and better than they ever knew.

It’s beginning.

dividerthe questions + my answers

What was the first blog post you ever wrote?

When I was eleven, I wrote a blog post about the three dance recitals I was in that year. (I had a private blog which was then called “inkling.” When I created this blog, I moved my favorite posts from the previous one over. My first post ever didn’t make it.)

I’ve been listening to BYU Vocal Point a lot lately. Some of my favorite of their songs are “Nearer My God To Thee,” “Homeward Bound,” and “Be Still My Soul.”

  • “Be Thou My Vision” by BYU Noteworthy
  • “How Great Thou Art” by Eclipse 6
