Providence Trilogy & Giveaway

If you have not read the PROVIDENCE Trilogy by author and fellow Twilighter (Yes, she's a huge Twilight fan!) Author Jamie McGuire yet you need too. This is an amazing Paranormal Romance series that will sweep you off your feet. If you love Edward Cullen then you’re going to love JARED RYEL!!! Jared makes me swoon just as hard as Edward!

* Quotes *

 "I can't have a life without you. I don't want a life without you."

"That's because you've kissed boys, sweetheart."

"You're my perfection. I'm all of those things for you,"

"I exist for you. And I live for you. And I live to love you."

Book 1

In the old world shadows of Providence, Rhode Island, Nina Grey finds herself the center of a war between Hell and Earth. Struggling with her father's death, Nina meets Jared Ryel, presumably by chance. However it soon becomes clear that he knows more about her than even close friends. When her father's former associates begin following her in the dark, Nina learns that her father was not the man she thought he was, but a thief who stole from demons. In searching for the truth behind her father's death, she stumbles upon something she never expected, and something Hell wants, that only she holds the key for. Jared risks everything to keep the women he was born to save, by sharing the secret he was sworn to protect.

 Book 2

Dreaming of the dead might mean a restless night for anyone, but for Nina Grey it was a warning. Still healing from her last run-in with Hell, Nina struggles with not only her life as a Brown University student, but also as an intern at Titan Shipping, her father's company. Recurring nightmares about her father's violent death have become a nightly event, but being overwhelmed with guilt from Ryan's unexpected departure to the Armed Forces, and heart ache over Claire being across the ocean to protect him, Nina believes her sleepless nights are the least of her problems—but she's wrong.

Worried about Nina's declining health, Jared must steal back Shax's book for answers. Fighting new enemies, and with the help of new friends, Jared's worst fear comes to fruition. Desperate, he is faced with a choice: Fight Hell alone, or start a war with Heaven.


Book 3

She had seen the unspeakable. She would learn the unknowable. Now, she would fight the invincible. In the third and final installment of the Providence series, Nina Grey will marry the wrong man, carry the child that was never supposed to be born, and fight a war she can't win. Faced with the impossible task of protecting his new wife and unborn child against the throes of Hell, Jared Ryel is allowed no mistakes. Pressured to return the Naissance de Demoniac to Jerusalem, he revisits St. Ann's to learn the answers were in front of him all along. Together, they must survive long enough to let their child save them - and the world.



Not only am I a huge fan of this series but I am completely in love with these audiobooks!  The narrator Carly Robins is truly amazing!  I just love her voice and could listen to her all day long.  She does an amazing job changing her voice for each character and keeps me thoroughly engaged and hanging on to her every word. 

The third book in the series, Eden, just recently released in audiobook.  Author Jamie McGuire has given me a free audio code to giveaway to one lucky blog follower. The giveaway is open from Thursday, January 12 through Sunday, January 15. Check it out and enter!

Twilight T-shirt Quilt

Do you have a lot of Twilight T-shirts?  Do you have a few favorites you still wear but have more than you know what to do with? If you're like me then you answered YES to both of those questions. 

Over the years, I have collected just about every Twilight Saga shirt I saw.  I also bought shirts as souvenirs on every Forks Trip I went on to the Pacific Northwest. I can't even begin to tell you how many shirts I have but it's more than I could ever wear. I still love them and wear my favorites but I wanted to do something special with those that I don't wear. Just hanging in the closet or folded in the drawer just wouldn't do.

My Twi-BFF Oregon Lynn of Our Twilight Corner found a website called Project Repat that turns your t-shirts into a quilt! HOW AWESOME IS THAT! I was super excited about this because what a great twi-treasure to have. I could have my very own trip t-shirt quilt just like Bella's mom gave her! 

Once I decided to do this I started to gather, wash and prep my shirts. Since I have an little OCD (Obsessive Cullen Disorder), I contacted Project Repat to see if I could design my own quilt. They said you can! How cool! All I needed to do was to send a color picture showing the shirts laid out in the order I wanted. So I took pictures of all the shirts, made a layout on my computer and organized them. This process took the longest because I did a double sided quilt and I wanted it to be perfect. The OCD was strong with the front side. I wanted to make sure that each book/movie was represented in order on both the top and bottom halves. The back side I made the trip shirt side so I was a tad less OCD with them.

After the design was done, I organized, cut, and mailed them the 60 shirts. Gasp! I KNOW! And that's not all of them. They cut panels, assembled, and sewed the shirts together. Once they were done they sent me back a Full Size Double Sided (30 panel) very meaningful quilt filled will all kinds of memories and adventures!

The Viewpoint Inn has SOLD!

I am so happy the Inn has sold!!!  The new owners are a local Corbett, Oregon couple, Heiner and Sheron Fruehauf.  They plan to REBUILD and bring the beauty back to this wonderful and historic site on the Columbia River Gorge!!!

See original post

Our Twilight Corner visits the View Point Inn 2010

The Viewpoint Inn is the home of the Twilight Prom that was tragically destroyed in a fire in July 2011. 

Window where Victoria watched Edward and Bella


In the last five years since the fire occurred the Inn has sat emptyThere have been several failed attempts to save it.  We've witnessed some roof reconstruction started but it was never finished.  Sadly the state of the Inn has declined and it has been the victim of vandalism.  I still continued to visit the Inn on my trips to the Pacific Northwest.  However with each passing year it's gotten sadder to see.
