The Revised Life of Ellie Sweet

Hello all! I finished this book last night, it took me 11 days to read a 267 page novel by Stephanie Morrill. It was so incredibly good, I'm so glad that there is book 2, and that I am able to read it, right now. ;)

Title: The Revised Life of Ellie Sweet

Author: Stephanie Morrill

Age Level: 12+ (YA Contemporary Novel)

Stars: 5+++

Violence: A backpack is________ with ________. (Sorry, spoilers....)

Pages: 267

Main Characters: Ellie, Lucy, Palmer, Chase, Bianca, Marie, Bronte, Dad, Mom, Aunt Karen/Karen, James, Harper, and Editors/Agents, etc.

What I think about this book: The Revised Life of Ellie Sweet is a very good story. Ellie Sweet is a Christian girl writing a book. But nobody knows she's writing a book--not even her Aunt Karen who knows 'everything' about Ellie. This is a great book--well written. I'm so glad that I--along with numerous other writers--are learning from Stephanie Morrill at Go Teen Writers.

From the Book:

In the hush of the library, I draw my laptop out of my bag. Bronte is probably right that the contest is a waste of money, but entering somehow feels like I'm standing up for myself. Like I;m drawing my sword. Only it's more like drawing my pen, I suppose.
Though they say that of the two, the pen is mightier.

Where to buy the book:


This is an absolutely a great book. I can't wait to finish book two!!! :) ( I just wish that Invisibly Yours was a real book, like one I can pick up and read, it sounds totally awesome! :)

Lives: In England 1300s

About: Adela is the daughter of a lord, her brother is heir, which just leaves here, out of place in a strange world. Even worse, she is held guilty for her mother's death that happened years ago, a spell is upon her that the world will end if she does not keep one little promise. She can not be betrothed to anyone. And if she is, doom will be upon the world. 
When the promise is broken, she must flee. When she thinks that she has escaped, the miseries come upon her, each of them gets worse and worse, until she has brought the world to what everyone believes to be the end. Then she must fight for her people, her country, her world.


This is a book that I am planning to write called, Forgotten Promise. Here is the beautiful cover that Britt made:

Thanks again Britt!!

The Tutor's Daughter

This was a book that I won in a giveaway, but then traded my critique partner, Mary. But about a week ago I found it in my library, and I kind of had to get it. ;) One. Of. The. Best. Books. I. Have. Ever. Read!!!! Get it, and read it!!!! Ok, now before I get too carried away, let me get on with the review, or we may never arrive there. ;)

Title: The Tutor's Daughter
Author: Julie Klassen
Age Level: 12+
Stars: 5+++
Violence: For a time you think there might be some violence, but there isn't any.
Pages: 405 (I read it in 5 days, it was that good!!!)
Main Charcters: Emma Smallwood, Mr. Smallwood, Henry Weston, Phillip Weston, Julian Weston, Rowan Weston, Lady Weston, Sir Giles Weston, _________ (sorry, i might ruin the whole story if I share this character's name!), Lizzie, and Aunt Jane
What I think about this book: I have clearly stated that this is a very well written book that has you hanging by the threads!
Book Description: Emma Smallwood, determened to help her widowed father whaen his boarding school fails, accompanies him to the cliff-top manor of a baronet and his four sons. But soon after they arrive and begun teaching the two younger boys, mysterious things begin to happen. Who does Emma hear playing the pianoforte at night, only to find the music rooom empty? And who begins sneaking into her bedchamber, leaving behind strange mementoes? The baronet's older sons, Phillip and Henry Weston, wrestle with problems--and secrets--of their own. They both remember the studious Miss Smallwood from their days at her father's academy. But now one of the finds himself unsexpectedly drawn to her... When suspicious acts escalate, can Emma figure out which brother to blame and which to trust with her heart? Filled with page-turning suspense The Tutor's Daughter takes readers to the windswept Cornwall coast--a place infamous for shipwrecks and superstitions--where danger lurks, faith is tested and romance awaits.

This is a book I highly recommend! :) I would like to thank Britt for holding the book giveaway over at Shining Bright Critique Group {Click the button on the sidebar) for holding the giveaway! ;) I found my new favorite book and I can't wait to read the other one.

Enjoy, Abrielle Lindsay
