Welcome back to another week of crafting!
Here's a super quick tutorial on how to crochet a heart!
Looking for something a little more complicated? How about this super cute jellyfish!
And, of course, you know I need something to listen to! Luckily, we have over 2,000 audiobooks to choose from on Sora, and this week I'm feeling like listening to some awesome fantasy, so, let's take a look at Legendborn by Tracy Deonn!
After her mother dies in an accident, sixteen-year-old Bree Matthews wants nothing to do with her family memories or childhood home. A residential program for bright high schoolers at UNC–Chapel Hill seems like the perfect escape—until Bree witnesses a magical attack her very first night on campus.
A flying demon feeding on human energies.
A secret society of so called “Legendborn” students that hunt the creatures down.
And a mysterious teenage mage who calls himself a “Merlin” and who attempts—and fails—to wipe Bree’s memory of everything she saw.
The mage’s failure unlocks Bree’s own unique magic and a buried memory with a hidden connection: the night her mother died, another Merlin was at the hospital. Now that Bree knows there’s more to her mother’s death than what’s on the police report, she’ll do whatever it takes to find out the truth, even if that means infiltrating the Legendborn as one of their initiates.
She recruits Nick, a self-exiled Legendborn with his own grudge against the group, and their reluctant partnership pulls them deeper into the society’s secrets—and closer to each other. But when the Legendborn reveal themselves as the descendants of King Arthur’s knights and explain that a magical war is coming, Bree has to decide how far she’ll go for the truth and whether she should use her magic to take the society down—or join the fight.
We're back again!
It's springtime, so let's look at how to crochet an adorable bumblebee!
Is a bumblebee a little out of your depth? No worries, you can also make an adorable and super simple flower (great for Mother's Day, no matter who you celebrate).
âFor this week's audiobook, I wanted to spotlight a book that takes place the summer DMX made it big. Here's the author, Tiffany D. Jackson, talking about it:
Here's that book, âLet Me Hear a Rhyme.
In this striking new novel by the critically acclaimed author of Allegedly and Mondayâs Not Coming, Tiffany D. Jackson tells the story of three Brooklyn teens who plot to turn their murdered friend into a major rap star by pretending he's still alive.
Brooklyn, 1998. Biggie Smalls was right: Things done changed. But that doesnât mean that Quadir and Jarrell are cool letting their best friend Stephâs music lie forgotten under his bed after heâs murderedânot when his rhymes could turn any Bed Stuy corner into a party.
With the help of Stephâs younger sister Jasmine, they come up with a plan to promote Stephâs music under a new rap name: the Architect. Soon, everyone wants a piece of him. When his demo catches the attention of a hotheaded music label rep, the trio must prove Stephâs talent from beyond the grave.
As the pressure of keeping their secret grows, Quadir, Jarrell, and Jasmine are forced to confront the truth about what happened to Steph. Only, each has something to hide. And with everything riding on Stephâs fame, they need to decide what they stand for or lose all that theyâve worked so hard to hold on toâincluding each other.
