Ancient: Guest Post by Polka-dot

Hey everybody! I'm working hard on my ''Snow White'' {which will be featured on here once done} novel, so this post is scheduled. But that's no reason to enjoy it less!

Our guest poster today is Polka-dot. Thanks Polka-dot for guest posting!

Fall is fast approaching, and one of my favorite things to do when it is getting colder is to curl up in a corner a read a book. It is so relaxing and cozy. So, I thought what would be better than reviewing one of my favorite books! I know it by heart (Not literally, but I have read it three times) and it is a really good book.
First let me introduce myself. I am PolkaDot and if you want to check out my blog go to zebrastripeandpolkadot.blogspot.com. Before I start I will give you 2 random things about myself. 1. I love animals and 2. When I finish school I want to become a nutritionist.

Okay know you now me, onto the book! The book is called Ancient by Kyle T. Kimbrough. The whole book is about Noah. You know the guy who built the ark? Yep, that Noah. It is totally fiction with a few true facts in it. It is, like all books, a book of good and evil. But this time there was a twist. The evil people are called Watchers. And they where good at first. God, Himself, sent them to help and teach the people how to live. There where originally 200. Then 148 Watchers got lured by the world and took an evil oath which took them out from under Gods authority. That means only 52 where still willing to follow God and they all paid dearly. There where only a few that survived.  The evil Watchers wanted the Eden Scroll to lead them to the Garden on Eden  and they could eat of the tree of life. To get there the Watchers would take women from villages to bear children for them, and they would grow up to be giants. This is where the whole story starts. A girl named Lydia gets kidnapped and Noah goes on a journey with some friends to find her. On this Journey Noah meets the love of his life and gains wisdom and fighting skills.

Now I forgot to mention, Ancient is a trilogy. Ancient 1 and 2 are out and ready to read but the third one is still being written. I am waiting and I can’t wait to find out what the end it! If you want to buy the books go to amazon and look up ancient Kyle T. Kimbrough. It should be there. They are a little expensive but totally worth your money!

I love these books and the author is very imaginative and makes you feel like your in this epic book and you’re the one fighting off the giants! It would make the best movie EVER!

Thank you Maddy for having me! I had a lot of fun.

Much love to all you readers,

PolkaDot

Tagged is the game.

Or something random like that. But anyway, I was tagged. Thanks Jenny!

You have to post 11 things about yourself,
You have to answer the questions I'll be giving you here↓
You have to try to nominate 5 people,
And lastly, You have to make up 11 questions for the people you nominate to answer, and you can't pick me!

11 10 things about me:

1. I want weapons for Christmas {because I'm the ''special'' child}
2. I am going to attempt to teach myself guitar and piano {I was taught piano when I was young but we took a long break and I forgot it. I'm going to reteach myself the notes and learn 'em.}
3. Since I don't exactly want to ask my grandparents for weapons {for Christmas} I added books and movies {I Love Lucy!} that I want, too.
4. The majority of Halloween candy I don't like.
5. I got Nikes! They are last year's whatevers, so they were on sale. :D

8. My favorite food is cucumber.
9. My eye started itching frequently a few days ago. :P
11. I don't like the number ten, so I skipped it.

The questions I was asked:

1) Composition or spiral notebooks? 
Composition. Spiral are weird....
2) Peeta or Gale? {Yes, I had to ask that.} 
Really? Must I answer? Because Peeta is a main character my answer immeditly goes to him, but I haven't really thought of it so it's very hard to answer. // I am the ninja of small animals in my small script//

I like pumpkin pie all right.....
4) Dark chocolate or milk chocolate?
Milk.
5) Soda or flavored water?
Soda.

It depends if the glasses we're talking about are super cute on whoever's face, or if the contacts are colored gray.
8) Mystery or Horror books?
Mystery.
9) Necklaces or Bracelets?
Bracelets! I don't like wearing stuff around my neck. SOMEBODY COULD CHOKE ME!
10) Ballet or Tap Dance?
I take ballet and LOVE it, so ballet. If I took Tap it might be a different answer.
11) Orchestra or Chorus?
I HATE ORCHESTRAS WITH A PURPLE PASSION. So, chorus. :)

My questions:

What's the first thing on your wish list right now {a link or picture if possible, please}?

Favorite band?

Creepiest toy for small/young children you've seen this year {cough*cough*Monster High*cough}?

 What is your definition of modesty?

Cheese or spray-cheese {there is only one answer, young cheese-ling, choose wisely!}?

What is the last thing you said to a stranger?

If I had those little thingy-ka-bobs at the end of my post {where you rate your current feeling, normally for me a very serious looking face but choosing a funny one} what would you rate on of my average posts? Funny? Disturbing? Somebody call this chick a doctor?

Favorite movie?
