Lately I've had so many ideas for blog posts-- book reviews, movie reviews, and whatnot-- that they've kind of been just tumbling over each other in my head to be written. However, so far most of them have yet to be finished (or even started, heehee.) I have a Gone With the Wind movie review in the works that just gets longer and longer every time I go to work on it, a book I've been wanting to review, and another book coming soon for me to review which I am very excited about, as it will be my first free book from the Bethany House blogger review program!!! (I was SO excited when I received the confirmation email on Love Comes Calling, since I have been requesting books since October and this is the first one I've actually received a confirmation for!) :-) *Does happy dance*
So anyways, since today I don't really want to put forth the effort (or take the time) to try to make my GWTW post into a coherent review and I'm in the mood for something random and fun, I've decided to write another post of little letters. I've done this style of letters once before and I always enjoy reading them on other people's blogs. So, my dear readers, may I present you with Spring Letters!
Dear Stephanie Grace Whitson,
I am soooo glad I found Sixteen Brides at the library and decided to read it. If I hadn't picked it up off the shelf, been intrigued by the cover and the small description on the back, I might never have found out what I was missing! I can't believe I'd never heard of any of your books before, but I'm so glad I have now. You are an amazing writer and I'm looking forward to reading more of your books!
Dear Christian Book Distributors,
Okay, y'all need to stop tempting me. I am trying to be a good girl and save my money, you know, but it makes it extremely hard when you keep sending me catalogs. And of course, on nearly every other page I find a book I want to buy. I just can't TAKE it all.
Dear Gone With the Wind,
Wow. Just, wow. It's been more than a month-- indeed, it's almost been two months-- since I saw you for the first time, but I'm still every bit as enamored with you as I was at first. I really wasn't expecting to love-- no, adore-- you as much as I do. I had no idea just how epic you are, but now I do. You're the best thing since East of Eden, you are, and one of the most amazing films I've ever seen. I can see now why they call you the biggest movie ever made, and why so many people love you so much, because you truly are a masterpiece.
Dear Beatrix Potter's Miniature Correspondence,
You are just so adorable I can hardly stand it. Really, you're that cute. I'm so glad I found that sweet little book of letters, because I have greatly enjoyed reading you and you've even inspired me to write my own correspondence between animals and dolls. My favorite of the correspondence (although I adore them all) would definitely be that of Squirrel Nutkin. His desperate pleas to Old Mr. Brown to let him have his tail back are simply priceless. :-)
|*Emma promptly faints because she just can't take such extreme adorable-ness*|
Please be good. Please. I admit, my expectations for you are not the highest, but I still would like to be proven wrong. I would just love it if you turned out to be amazing after all! Please, Mary, don't do anything stupid. Edith, be careful around Mr. Rochester--erm, I mean, Michael Gregson. Branson, don't get married again. And Mr. Bates, PLEASE, try to stay out of trouble this season. Sheesh.
Dearest, darlingest, most beloved Matthew Crawley,
WHY? Why did you have to leave us? What will we ever do without you? How will Downton Abbey ever be as good again? "Without you, the world around me changes, the trees are bare and everywhere the streets are full of strangers....SOB.
You're awfully adorable and I really do like you a great deal, but I'm not too happy with you right now. Why on earth did you want to get off Downton Abbey? I mean, honestly, what did you think you would go on to do that's any better?!? I hope you're happy. "I hope you're happy, how you've hurt your cause forever, I hope you think you're cleveeerrrr!!!!"
