Think Out Loud #11

Think Out Loud.
This is a weekly meme used for bloggers
to post something they would normally not post.
So, post whatever YOU want!
MadauG and ClarA's 
 Friendship pandas

MadauG: I saw these awesome stuffed pandas at a store one day and I thought it would be fun if my best friend and I bought them. Like a couple thing.  The idea was we would both buy one and they'd be twin pandas with their own unique personality (which we would invent). For some reason she assumed we were gonna buy porcelain pandas.....Not complaining but I think it was pretty clear I meant stuffed ones and who buys porcelain pandas. I mean really..?

ClarA: I assumed they were porcelain or something, because you don't like stuffed animals. And no, you were not clear, you meant STUFFED pandas. The thought of you buying stuffed pandas never crossed my mind. And there are people who buy porcelain stuff. I've been to a house that had like an entire cupboard full of porcelain things. I liked the idea of doing something together. To strengthen our bond or something like that. 

MadauG:.....Yes, there are people who collect porcelain dolls. I saw some in an episode of SUPERNATURAL and you know what that show is about? DEMONS !  I thought you'd like the idea that's why I asked you, so we could have our own thing together. The shop we went had a lot of cool and affordable stuff didn't it? And the pandas were affordable too. What did you think when you saw them?

ClarA: I've never actually watched an entire episode of Supernatural. I wouldn't say cool. Although I'd love one of the gigantic teddy bears they have. Yeah they were affordable, considering stuffed animals can be expensive. I thought they were cute. With the big head and small body.

MadauG: I wouldn't describe them as cute; more like "majestic" and 'laid back".  We decided to give them names. I named my panda Haru after a Korean pop singer's daughter (TABLO). I like Korean dramas and music so I had already decided on a Korean name. I also decided to give them their own sounds, because we weren't sure what sounds pandas made. So following this reasoning my panda makes an "ehehehehe" sound. This is the sound Tom Hiddleston makes when he laughs. I am not kidding you people.

ClarA: Yeah she really thought about the name beforehand. However I could not decide on a name yet for my little cutie. I actually went online to look up some cool names. I actually wanted to give my panda a gender neutral name, but I didn't find a name that suited her. I was considering naming my panda Ethan or Khaleesi. But then I looked at my panda long and hard and the name came to me.... She was a Sofia. The sound Sofia makes is "cacaw". Why, you ask? I was thinking about this really funny part in the movie "Evolution" where they were trying to call the dragon in the mall. Sean William Scott made the sounds: "cacaw" and "tookie tookie". And I just loved it.

MadauG: Dude, seriously you're making it sounds like you're naming a baby. It's a panda, a stuffed panda. And again you cannot name any one "Khaleesi" it's a title not a name, woman. I knew that's why you gave her the "cawcaw" sound. I love it too. 

ClarA: Well, she is one of my many babies now. It can be a name too. If people can name their daughters "Princess", why can't I have the possibility of naming her "Khaleesi".

Alright guys, introducing Haru and Sofia !

Lkes: : sleeping, eating and reading with MadauG. 
Dislikes: when Sofia gets all huggy and when MadauG won't share food with her. 
Biggest Dream: developing pyrokinetic  powers.
Fears: getting her white fur dirty and ...bamboo. 
DOB: July 17th 
Identification mark: bow earring right ear.
Identification: Bow earring on right ear

                                                                                          Sofia ---->
Likes: hanging out with her friends, keeping ClarA company while she studies. 
Dislikes: Being ignored, "flying" with "The Dude". 
Biggest Dream: to be played with when "Muffinhead" makes her appearance. 
Fears: Getting lost and never finding a way back, getting drooled on. 
DOB: July 17th  
Identification: red polka dot scarf, earring on the left ear, sometimes with a pink hair clip on the right side.

Thanx for stopping by and welcoming our new mascots !

Waiting on Wednesday #5

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

A Collection of Ten Short Stories centred around Magnus Bane. Each short story is going to be published as an ebook followed by a Full Single Print Coming 2014

Ever wondered about the enigmatic, mysterious warlock Magnus Bane? The only character to appear in every Shadowhunter book, Magnus has a past even more shrouded in mystery than his present. I’ve teamed up with acclaimed YA writers Maureen Johnson and Sarah Rees Brennan to create the Bane Chronicles, the back (and front) story of Magnus told in ten linked tales.

Look for short stories like Vampires, Scones and Edmund Herondale; The Rise and Fall of the Hotel Dumort; Saving Raphael Santiago and What To Buy The Shadowhunter Who Has Everything (And Who You’re Not Officially Dating Anyway). Each story will be available as an ebook on a monthly basis starting April 16 with the tale of What Happened In Peru. 

Each story will be released monthly online for the next ten months — and then for those who don’t read e-books, the full print collection will be available in bookstores and wherever else books are sold after the Chronicles have been finished.Goodreads

Hardcover528 pages
Expected publication: November 11th 2014 by Margaret K. McElderry Books
Recently read The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. I really enjoyed the book and especially the humor. I also kept noticing similarities with the HP series, I thought this was curios and interesting. Apparently, I'm not the only one and there are a lot of fans out there bashing the book because it was originally fanfiction. I, however like the character of Magnus Bane and I'm interested in knowing more about him. The fanficiton claim does annoy me and puts me of from reading the rest of the series. 

Dark Skye, 
it's next week Tuesday!!!

Waiting on Wednesday # 4

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

I'm sorry but.....I'm still waiting on Dark Skye 

It's almost out! 57 days till Dark Skye is out. 

Eternal Obsession 

As a boy, Thronos, Lord of Skye Hall, loved Lanthe, a mischievous Sorceri girl who made him question everything about his Vrekener clan. But when the two got caught in the middle of their families’ war, tragedy struck, leaving Thronos and Lanthe bitter enemies. Though centuries have passed, nothing can cool his seething need for the beautiful enchantress who scarred his body - and left an even deeper impression on his soul.

Endless Yearning 

Lanthe, a once-formidable sorceress struggling to reclaim her gifts, searches for love and acceptance with all the wrong immortal suitors. But she’s never forgotten Thronos, the magnificent silver-eyed boy who protected her until she was ripped from the shelter of his arms. One harrowing night changed everything between them. Now he’s a notorious warlord with a blood vendetta against Lanthe, hunting her relentlessly.

Can the heat of desire burn brighter than vengeance? 

With their families locked in conflict and battles raging all around them, will Thronos and Lanthe succumb to the brutal chaos that threatens everything they cherish? Or will the fragile bond they formed so long ago spark a passion strong enough to withstand even the darkest doubts? GOODREADS

Waiting on Wednesday #3

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

I'm waiting on, Son of No One by Sherrilyn Kenyon. It's the 13th Dark-hunter book! I've read them all except for Time Untime (Ren's Book). If you're familiar with Kenyon's Dark-Hunter series ! This book follows new characters Cadegan and Jo (cousin to the  Devereaux's). I'm kind of bummed it's not Jaden's book or Savitar but let's face it ...we're not gonna get their books anytime soon. On the bright side since these are kind of new characters maybe this will be a better book than Styxx.

My favorite thing about this author is that she has a website dedicated to her characters with character profiles and  everything else; curious? go here -> Sanctuary 
Further more that cover is sweet!

Expected publication : September 2nd 2014

Waiting on Wednesday #2

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

I'm an Immortals After Dark fan so the book I'm waiting on, been waiting on for a long time now is DARK SKYE. It's  Melanthe's and Throno's story; I've been wanting to read about them for so long, since 2011.....that's  years!!. since they've appeared and even more when Thrones  let himself be capture by the Order so he could get to Lanthe. I hope this book fulfills my expectations and resembles the earlier books. The cover is clearly not very impressive but it grows on you.

Expected publication: August 5th 2014 by Gallery Books
