Summary: After Creel's aunt sacrifices her to a dragon, Creel refuses to wait for a knight to rescue her. Instead, she bargains for her escape - and wins her freedom, along with a pair of blue slippers. As she sets out to find her fortune in the king's city, she meets and befriends another dragon. But when she arrives in the city, strange things start to happen. Creel realizes that her mysterious slippers are more than just a pair of shoes - they possess magic that could save the kingdom... or destroy it.
My Review: I absolutely loved this book! :D I loved the magic, the mystery, and the dragons! I'm so glad that Jessica Day George wrote this book! I was completely swept away into the story and I was hooked instantly by the first sentence!
When I read the book, it felt as if I was in Creel's "slippers" and I didn't want the magic to end! I can't wait to read the other 2 books! I hope that the magic, mystery and wonder are still as vibrant and bursting as it is in this book! :3

Today is a CREATE YOUR OWN! So today, I'm going to be talking about one specific person. I've decided to talk about Link from Legend of Zelda! (You've got to admit, he's pretty dreamy)
So, the wielder of the master sword, holder/protector of the Triforce of Courage, and the savior to Hyrule, Link is a one man army. He's not only has the looks of a hero, he's got the friends, weapons and skills too. (Remember everyone, it's his looks and skills, not just weapons.)
And trust me, it gets better, when he is trying to stop Ganondorf from taking over Hyrule (WEEEELLLL, Ganondorf kind-of already took over Hyrule when seven years passed by, I mean COME ON! Link magically disappeared for seven years and then... BAAMMM! He pops out of nowhere saying, "I shall find you Zelda, and save Hyrule with it." Okay, he literally doesn't say that cause he's kind of a man with no words, but still!)
As Link journey's around Hyrule, he has to do mini quests to get things to help him with his quest (P.S. I'm talking about Ocarina of Time.)
(Now talking about Twilight Princess) Okay, let me be honest. I've never played the game Twilight Princess for Legend of Zelda, but I want to BADLY. I just watched a TON of trailers (commercials?) and they were literally EPIC! I'm not joking, they were SOOO amazing. And now I am asking a bunch of questions in my head and they won't stop. But I do have picutres!
Epic, right? Now don't get confused at picture 1. I would explain why, but I don't want to ruin it for you. Back to what I was saying, Link is AWESOME and EPIC and JUST GREAT OVERALL, so don't judge him. He may not talk a lot (or at all....), BUT HE HIS THE BEST GUY EVER! So far, I don't know anyone else that is 'as cool' or 'cooler' than Link.

This is Charisma and my 2015 Reading List! This is NOT our Reading Goal, but what we would like to read in 2015.
Trust me, this was just a few of them, there are tons more!
What do YOU have on YOUR 2015 Reading List?
Tell me in the comments!
transported to the Civil War time. But, every chapter they switched from the main character, Dana, to the Non-Fiction part, which is James point of view. And I feel as if the more I read from Dana's point of view, the less I understand from her. But the more I read from James, the more I feel as if I'm in his shoes.
And the ending, I felt it was kind of satisfying, but now, I kind of want the next book. But since I wasn't happy with Dana's chapters, I really just don't want it.
All in All I'll give this book 3 stars.
Because I was so unsatisfied with Dana's chapters, I just not very happy with the book. I really hope that the second book will better.
Have YOU read the book? Do YOU have any comments about it?

Today's topic is favorite authors! So I think my first favorite author would be Shannon Hale.
My third favorite author is Micheal Buckley, author of 'The Sisters Grimm'. It's just so good! And I can name another 3 authors, but that would be take to much time. Sorry!
Who are YOUR favorite authors? Tell me in the comments!
Sorry we're getting these Monday Mayhem and Saturday Specials so Late!
Today's post is Waiting for the Next Book. And the next book I'm waiting for is the third (and I believe final) book of The Books of Beginning. The second book left Charisma and me crying for the next book. It was so said, and so intense! The next book is coming out in March of this year.
What book are YOU waiting for? Tell me in the comments!
Today's post are books you could NEVER EVER live without. And since this post will be super long, I'll just do two or three books. So the first book is Sister's Grimm: Magic and Other Misdemeanors (You should expect a book review very soon). Any way, this book is a 'To Be Continued...' book and it was a great book! But I wanted to shake Charisma too the ground asking the question 'WHY?!?!'. It was a great book, truly it was, there were just some parts that I couldn't handle.
Book Summary: When the past and future start mixing with the present, Sabrina and Daphne have their first case to tackle solo—with a little help from the troublemaker Puck. The girls suspect that a rash of magical thefts may be at the root of the problem, but with Mayor Heart’s outrageous taxes to pay and Mr. Canis’s continuing transformation into the Big Bad Wolf, the Grimms have a lot to worry about and not a lot of time to waste. Can Sabrina and Daphne solve the crime and change the future for the better?Fans devour this clever series, which becomes more intriguing with each new book.
Second book is The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.
I cry every time. It's such a beautiful book. Where a bunny loses his owner and sets off on a journey to find what true love means. Here's the Book Summary:
Once, in a house on Egypt Street, there lived a china rabbit named Edward Tulane. The rabbit was very pleased with himself, and for good reason: he was owned by a girl named Abilene, who adored him completely. And then, one day, he was lost... Kate DiCamillo takes us on an extraordinary journey, from the depths of the ocean to the net of a fisherman, from the bedside of an ailing child to the bustling streets of Memphis. Along the way, we are shown a miracle--that even a heart of the most breakable kind can learn to love, to lose, and to love again.
I just love this book. I use to own it before I gave it to my older sister, but I can still read it. I hope I don't cry again.. Anyway, the third book is The Tale of Despereaux. It is such a good book.
Here's the book summary.
Welcome to the story of Despereaux Tilling, a mouse who is in love with music, stories, and a princess named Pea. It is also the story of a rat called Roscuro, who lives in the darkness and covets a world filled with light. And it is the story of Miggery Sow, a slow-witted serving girl who harbors a simple, impossible wish. These three characters are about to embark on a journey that will lead them down into a horrible dungeon, up into a glittering castle, and, ultimately, into each other's lives. What happens then? As Kate DiCamillo would say: Reader, it is your destiny to find out.
This book is so enticing, it's magical, beautiful, filled with sadness and joy! It yearns to be read, it longs to have readers read it and then re-read it. I loved this book, and I asked my older sister if I could have it, of course she said no, but I can still run up to her and ask if I can read it. If you haven't read any of these books, you defiantely should.
