How hard do you have to shake a family tree to find out the truth about the past?

Fifteen-year-old Rae Kerrigan never questioned her family’s history. That is until she accepted a scholarship to Guilder Boarding School in England. Guilder is an exclusive, gifted school.

Rae has no idea what she is getting herself into or that her family’s past is going to come back and taunt her. She learns she is part of an unparalleled group of individuals who become inked with a unique tattoo (tatu) on their sixteenth birthday. The tatu enables them to have
supernatural powers particular to the shape of their ink-art.

Both of her parents where inked, though
Rae never knew, as they passed away when she was young. Learning about her family's past, her evil father and sacrificial mother, Rae needs to decide if there is a ray of hope in her own life.

3 Things I'd Like To Say to Different People

This seems like a good time to mention my new Tumblr page: Letters To You and Me.
It was originally on Blogger but I recently switched it over to Tumblr, I like the format better.

Considering I have a blog dedicated to saying things to people, this should be fairly easy. And it is, but it's also not.

My Favorite Book

What was I thinking with this topic?!
Unfortunately I'm currently being lazier that usual and don't want to look up what the alternative would have been, so I'll just work with what I have.

Some time ago I thought of writing a post about my first favorite book, the one that got me hooked. Pretty sure it was going to be my way of figuring out which book really did it for me, since I'm always going on about how it was The Princess Diaries.

30 Song Challenge: Song That Calms You Down

This, like most challenges like it, is technically suppose to be a 30 day challenge but I've decided to make it weekly because; sadly, I'll only be blogging for 4 more weeks (not counting the final blogoversary week).

Song 4: Song That Calms You Down
I'm pretty sure I've mentioned before that when I'm upset I listen to classical or violin music; but when I'm mad and a hundred yards past upset (because I couldn't simply say pissed off) I listen to Opera. I don't know, something about people yell/singing in a different language has a calming effect on me.

My Favorite Superhero

I miss the days when I didn't care about superheroes. Not that they were long. I was pretty into them ten years ago. I blame Iron Man, never saw the movie because I never cared. But everyone loved it.
And then the franchises stared.
