Random Post

Sorry that I haven't been blogging lately, Things have been interesting.. per say. I went to get see the Harry potter: Half Blood Prince movie on Sunday night with JEC, and well, I loved it. In this, made me have one of those crazy splurge moments, to watch all the other movies. Couldn't help it. Very tempting. Anyways, now that's done, I am either going to see the movie again, or read to death. This is short, and hold the sweet. Happy Reading. :)

Southampton Trailer for the Week

Man, that went by slow, and fast, depending on how you looked at it. The countless times i thought if JEC was mad at me, bored of me, or just plain annoyed, wanting rid of me. Pictures though, can say a thousand words. Most of them happy, others tragic. You never know what might come from taking a picture, and showing it around. As you watch the clouds go by, you relize, even if i do one thing, someone else in the world, probably doesn't care, because they have it better, or worse. There is an in between, but only if you want it to happen. So that's why we biked to the graveyard, watering flowers for thoughs who have died, old, young. ( Even the fake flowers we watered. My mistake. ) But just to know that, even if we didn't know these people, we could sit by, and hopefully put a smile on their faces while their grave's have been abandonned by loved ones, because sadness, and greif comes flooding back into our lives, something we try to live without. We wonder if when we sat by that big tree, if they have ever wanted to, or sat their as well, looking down on us, and longing for company and heart.

I think I haven't been THIS excited for something in a long time, except me buying a horse, so yes, its WAY up there!! Her husband is having a signed ARC contest, very exciting!! Anyways here is the whole sha-bam about it.

Then she meets Caspian, the gorgeous and mysterious boy who shows up out of nowhere at Kristen's funeral, and keeps reappearing in Abbey's life. Caspian clearly has secrets of his own, but he's the only person who makes Abbey feel normal again...but also special.
Just when Abbey starts to feel that she might survive all this, she learns a secret that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her best friend.

Darklight by Lesley Livingston

OMG!!! You have no idea how excited i am for reading this book. It comes out on December 9th! If you haven't read the first book, WONDROUS STRANGE, then you better read it, you'll be really glad you did. It's amazing, the author also somehow incorporates Shakespeare into it, with romance, and mystery. Here's a picture of what DARKLIGHT will look like.
Much has changed since autumn, when Kelley Winslow learned she was Faerie royalty, fell in love with changeling guard Sonny Flannery, and saved New York City from a rampaging Faerie war band. When a terrifying encounter in Central Park sends Kelley tumbling into the Otherworld, her reunion with Sonny is joyful—but cut short. For they’ve been plunged into a game of Faerie deception and wavering allegiances in which the next move could topple a kingdom…or part them forever.The fans who flocked to Lesley Livingston’s Wondrous Strange will fall hard for Darklight, the soaringly romantic second book in the trilogy. Breathless high stakes and vividly magical characters make this a can’t-miss fantasy for readers
of Melissa Marr and Holly Black.”

Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

This is one of my favorite books ever. Its spontaneous, crazy, and adorable. You will fall all over this book when you read it. Perfect Chemistry is a book that you can follow, and relate to. It's very realistic, but amazing!! It should be on your must-list.

When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created “perfect” life is about to unravel before her eyes. She’s forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for—her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect. Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more.

In a passionate story about looking beneath the surface, Simone Elkeles breaks through the stereotypes and barriers that threaten to keep Brittany and Alex apart.

Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen

This author, i can't start to explain how well she writes. What I love about her writing is that its not overdone, and you can really relate to everything thats happening. You can even feel the same pressure that the characters feel, like you are zapped into the book and being portrayed as that character. Magnificent work. If you're not familiar with her work, you should start! You wont be disappointed.

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.

Pretty Little Liars #6: Killer by Sara Shepherd

I read this book and it was amazing! There is a bit of romance, and mystery in this book that i'm sure no one would want to miss. Plus, there is a MAJOR shocking ending I love. See for yourself.

In picture-perfect Rosewood, Pennsylvania, ash-blond highlights gleam in the winter sun and frozen lakes sparkle like Swarovski crystals. But pictures often lie—and so do Rosewood's four prettiest girls.
Hanna, Aria, Spencer, and Emily have been lying ever since they became friends with beautiful Alison DiLaurentis. Ali made them do terrible things—things they had to keep secret for years. And even though Ali was killed at the end of seventh grade, their bad-girl ways didn't die with her.
Hanna's on a mission to corrupt Rosewood's youth, starting with a very attractive sophomore. Aria's snooping into her boyfriend's past. Spencer's stealing—from her family. And pure little Emily's abstaining from abstinence.
The girls should be careful, though. They thought they were safe when Ali's killer was arrested and A's true identity was finally revealed. But now there's a new A in town turning up the heat. And this time Rosewood is going to burn.

GRAND opening?....

Well who knows what this might bring us, but i made this for people like me. People who have a love for reading and want to find more books to read. Most blogs have all the same books, but my focus is on bringing on the fantasy, romance, fictional books that many teen girls love, and ( but with very very very slim chance ) boys. ... awkward.

Who says that we have to read all the same books as everyone else, or go out and do something. We fight it, and sometimes we can't give in to the pressure of curling up in whatever season, and read till our imaginations are on overdrive, and have massive headaches from all the information we have sucked up, with more questions hoping for our answer. I am not asking for hope in being a charity case, only one that actually has meaning. Everyone can see themselves as someone else, but the true treasure in life is being who you are, and doing whatever the hell you want. ( I'm very bad with authority figures. ) Come back soon, there will be more, i promise.

( i mean it, i have about 7 books to read, and will have to finish in a week. )
