Right now I'm not in the greatest of moods. Personal issues and all. (Boyfriend...parents...school) Anyway, I finished the second book on my list, Blue is for Nightmares. So here's the review.

Stacey's junior year at boarding school isn't easy. She's not the most popular girl at school, or the smartest, or the prettiest. She's got a crush on her best friend's boyfriend, and an even darker secret that threatens to ruin her friendships for good. And now she's having nightmares again. Not just any nightmares – these dreams are too real to ignore, like she did three years ago. The last time she ignored them, a little girl died. This time they're about Drea, her best friend who's become the target of one seriously psycho stalker. It started with weird e-mails and freaky phone calls. Now someone's leaving Drea white lilies – the same death lilies that have been showing up in Stacey's dreams. Everybody thinks it's just a twisted game . . . until another girl at school is brutally murdered. There are no witnesses. Worst of all, no one has a perfect alibi. With everyone as a potential suspect, Stacey turns to the one secret weapon she can trust – the folk magic taught to her by her grandmother. Will Stacey's magic be strong enough to expose the true killer, or will the killer make her darkest nightmares come true?

I've been wanting to read this book, this series, for so long. Finally, I did. And with all the anticipation that I built up, I was expecting i to fall a little beneath my standards. But I was wrong, thank goodness. I loved the book. It won't exactly maake it to my favorites list (and yes I have one of those) but it was amazing. I definately recommend reading this book and/or series. I'm looking forwards to reading the next one. The twist was aamzing, the spells and plot great. Anyways...read it, you won't be dissapointed.

Until Later,

So I've seen some of your blogs, and other people's blogs and mine looks like a crumpled cracker next to the others. Ummm, so I was wondering if someone could give me pointers on how to make my blog look better and attract more people. I really want my blog to be special, but I'm kind of new at this and so I may need a little help. So if any of you can give me some pointers I'd REALLY appreciate it. :) Thankies!

Until Later

Another Review

I haven't talked in a while, but my step mom had to use the computer all weekend, so I didn't get to use it. I guess that could have been a good thing, though. I was able to finish my projects for school early and then read the rest of the time. And that is why I am here today: to bring you my review of Along for the Ride!!
It’s been so long since Auden slept at night. Ever since her parents’ divorce—or since the fighting started. Now she has the chance to spend a carefree summer with her dad and his new family in the charming beach town where they live.

A job in a clothes boutique introduces Auden to the world of girls: their talk, their friendship, their crushes. She missed out on all that, too busy being the perfect daughter to her demanding mother. Then she meets Eli, an intriguing loner and a fellow insomniac who becomes her guide to the nocturnal world of the town. Together they embark on parallel quests: for Auden, to experience the carefree teenage life she’s been denied; for Eli, to come to terms with the guilt he feels for the death of a friend.

In her signature pitch-perfect style, Sarah Dessen explores the hearts of two lonely people learning to connect.

Okay, first let me just say amazing! I absolutely loved this book. I was a fan of Sarah Dessen's before, but this put her on a whole new level. It was an amazing book about changes in a young girl's life, as always, but for some reason this one stuck out for me. I took so many things from the book with me back into the real world and I plan to live by them for the rest of my life. It was truly inspirational and just seemed to strike a chord within me. I must say that I love the way she would move to flash backs, or skip a section and then retell. It was like you were getting the story like her friends but with her own thoughts too. Like you were her best friend. It was cool. I will always remember this book. So, I definately suggest that you read it also and hopefully it can mean as much to you as it did to me.

And thst's about it. I'm reading Blue is for Nightmares now. I'll hopefully have the review up soon.

Until Later,

Stuff + A Review

Bugger, I missed yesterday too. :( I'm a horrible blogger. I was just realy busy yesterday. Oh well. I got a comment!! Wooo, love getting them so keep'em coming. Anyways...I finsihed Fool by Christopher Moore and I figured I'd do my review on it. :)

A man of infinite jest, Pocket has been Lear's cherished fool for years, from the time the king's grown daughters—selfish, scheming Goneril, sadistic (but erotic-fantasy-grade-hot) Regan, and sweet, loyal Cordelia—were mere girls. So naturally Pocket is at his brainless, elderly liege's side when Lear—at the insidious urging of Edmund, the bastard (in every way imaginable) son of the Earl of Gloucester—demands that his kids swear their undying love and devotion before a collection of assembled guests. Of course Goneril and Regan are only too happy to brownnose Dad. But Cordelia believes that her father's request is kind of . . . well . . . stupid, and her blunt honesty ends up costing her her rightful share of the kingdom and earns her a banishment to boot.

Well, now the bangers and mash have really hit the fan. The whole damn country's about to go to hell in a handbasket because of a stubborn old fart's wounded pride. And the only person who can possibly make things right . . . is Pocket, a small and slight clown with a biting sense of humor. He's already managed to sidestep catastrophe (and the vengeful blades of many an offended nobleman) on numerous occasions, using his razor-sharp mind, rapier wit . . . and the equally well-honed daggers he keeps conveniently hidden behind his back. Now he's going to have to do some very fancy maneuvering—cast some spells, incite a few assassinations, start a war or two (the usual stuff)—to get Cordelia back into Daddy Lear's good graces, to derail the fiendish power plays of Cordelia's twisted sisters, to rescue his gigantic, gigantically dim, and always randy friend and apprentice fool, Drool, from repeated beatings . . . and to shag every lusciously shaggable wench who's amenable to shagging along the way.

Pocket may be a fool . . . but he's definitely not an idiot.

The humor was what hooked me, but it was the plot that made me stay. It was not only an absolutely hilarious book, but filled with amazing plots that just kept coming. The end of the book left me breathless. One of the best books I've ever read and I would highly recommend to anyone who likes a little comedy in their books...not that this book has just a little funny bone. Haha. Great book.(Also, read more of his books. The ones I've read so far, are great.)

Well, that's about it. I just started Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen. I hope to have that review up by Sunday.

Until Later,

Busy Bee

Didn't get to blog yesterday, poo. Well, I'm here today so never fear!! I went to the library today and got three great books so I'm hoping to have the reviews for them up very soon. Also, I plan on starting with the topic directed blogs this weekend, hopefully around Friday so that should be cool.
School is becoming a unroyal pain. I can't always do everything I want in one day like I could over the summer. Oh well, it'll just take a little adjusting to get used to it. Ummm, right now I can't think of anything else of importance. So, I'll give you the names of the books and be off!

* Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
* Blue is for Nightmares by Laurie Stolarz
* White is for Magic by Laurie Stolarz

Well there they are, and I might also do a review on Fool by Christopher Moore. I don't know, maybe. Well, I'm out sauerkraut. :)

Until Later,

Sooo, I was thinking about all the ways I could make this blog enjoyable for all my readers. (2 follows, woot) I was wondering what topics people would like to read about? I came up with a few ideas:
-Advice: giving advice but not being able to take it or follow it myself
-Living with my ADHD brother: how much of a pain he is but and the conflicting feelings and emotions I constantly deal with
-Divorce: Is it a good thing or a bad thing? Maybe describe my ideas about the pro's and con's of divorce and my personal experience with it
-The future: what I'm looking towards and whether looking forward so much is a good thing
-Teen pregnancy: there are so many people at my school and people everywhere that are getting pregnant and having kids. It's like an epidemic.
Books/reading: reviews and upcoming books, books I love, books I want to read

I'm completely open to suggestions or recommendations. I have high expectations for my blog and I hope that it will become something great. I hope that you all will enjoy and continue to come back. Leave comments and links to your own blogs, I'd be glad to check them out.
So that's all for now...

Until Later,

The Beginning

Hello, everybody! So this is my first blog on here. I had heard so much about this place and so I decided to check it out. I liked what I saw, so I made a profile. :D Fun. Well, let's see...A little introduction maybe? My blogs will be about many different subjects, some relevent and interesting and some probably just me ranting about life. I love to write and type and things, thus me wanting to be a writer. That means blogging is perfect for me. So, welcome and I hope to be adding many great blogs on here and reading yours as well.

Until Later,
