Challenge of 2009 ( my 100th post)

I only participated in 1 challenge and was succesful in completing it.
I did the 100 books. I wanted to know how many books I could read in a year so at first it was 100 but then it changed to 120 and in July I read 100 and in August 120 both my major goals reached. I was so shocked when I read that much I didn't know I could so much. I am now up to 197 and over halfway in a book. I am really hoping to read 3 books today.

Next year I will try 225 or 250. But I still deciding since I know I have school and high school swim season in August through October which really takes over my life snd don't have that much time to do other things like reading.

1st Book: All American Girl

Amazon.com Question Please Help

I have a debit gift card thing I got for birthday (back in April) that I haven't spent yet and it expires soon (as in January first) and I wanted to spend it on amazon but II have question first.

Does amazon charge you when you order the things (meaning right away) or when they ship the books to you?

There is a list of books I want to preorder but am not sure when they charge you. If you could help it would very much appreciated. Thanks

2010 Debut Author Challenge

I love this challenge and I am really looking foward to trying the challenge this year since I didn't do the 2009 one. I also love debut authors since they are people I can look foward to reading new books from and there writing style to me is usually different then those who have written books before.

In case you didn't know the objective is to read a goal of whatever YA or middle grade books in 2010.

I don't have a list yet since I haven't really been paying attention yet to books that come out next year and also don't have any books yet.

I did think of Two
Cinderalla Society
Princess For Hire

I promise to add more when I find some


Please Consider joining the challenge at The Story Siren. She has a whole bunch of really great things planned.

The Espressologist by Kristina Springer


What’s your drink of choice? Is it a small pumpkin spice latte? Then you’re lots of fun and a bit sassy. Or a medium americano? You prefer simplicity in life. Or perhaps it’s a small decaf soy sugar-free hazelnut caffe latte? Some might call you a yuppie. Seventeen-year-old barista Jane Turner has this theory that you can tell a lot about a person by their regular coffee drink. She scribbles it all down in a notebook and calls it Espressology. So it’s not a totally crazy idea when Jane starts hooking up some of her friends based on their coffee orders. Like her best friend, Em, a medium hot chocolate, and Cam, a toffee nut latte. But when her boss, Derek, gets wind of Jane’s Espressology, he makes it an in-store holiday promotion, promising customers their perfect matches for the price of their favorite coffee. Things are going better than Derek could ever have hoped, so why is Jane so freaked out? Does it have anything to do with Em dating Cam? She’s the one who set them up! She should be happy for them, right?
Review: This book was a really cute holiday book.
The plot was realy cute and kinda a typical romance book but was different because it had a setting and main idea ata coffehouse and matchmaking. I thought the plot was a little predicatble though.
The characters were really fun and relatable. Jane was a tpical girl you would want to be friends with. And the guys sounded fun and interesting.
Overall it was a cute holiday read. I would reccamend you read it since it short and cute
I am looking foward to other books Kristina Springer writes.
4.5 out 5 stars

Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick


For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.
Review: I liked this book but I had a few things that this reminded me of. Things like Twilight. I do not know why since there aren't any vampires or anything like that and they are like toatlly different but I was constantlly reminded of Twilight.
The plot was good. I was addicted to it. I was really entertained and wanted to keep reading. It was also kinda freaky and weird but in a good way that made me want to read it. The ending was really good the last 100 pages really were good.
The characters were okay and weird. Nora was good. Patch freaked me out. Vee was a weird best friend. The characters I was kinda confused on a few mainly the guy characters I thought there were one or two too many and got them confused.
Overall it was good

So Not Happening by Jenny B. Jones


New York's social darling just woke up in a nightmare: Oklahoma. Problem is, it's right where God wants her.
Bella Kirkwood had it all: A-list friends at her prestigious private school, Broadway in her backyard, and Daddy's MasterCard in her wallet. Then her father, a plastic surgeon to the stars, decided to trade her mother in for a newer model.
When Bella's mom falls in love with a man she met on the Internet--a factory worker with two bratty sons--Bella has to pack up and move in with her new family in Truman, Oklahoma. On a farm no less!
Forced to trade her uber-trendy NYC lifestyle for down-home charm, Bella feels like a pair of Rock & Republic jeans in a sea of Wranglers.
At least some of the people in her new high school are pretty cool. Especially the hunky football player who invites her to lunch. And maybe even the annoying--but kinda hot--editor of the school newspaper.
But before long, Bella smells something rotten in the town of Truman, and it's not just the cow pasture. With her savvy reporter's instincts, she is determined to find the story behind all the secrets.
How can a girl go on when her charmed life is gone and God appears to be giving her the total smackdown?
I honestly didn't expect much this. I thought it would just be another one the stories where a spoiled girl goes somewhere where she does not belong since it has been done many times before. But I was surprised when the book actually wasn't that bad.
The plot was interesting and was different. You would never think in the small town that they are in that there is a evil football brotherhood that is very dangerous. I loved the ending it was really good and puts an ending to the story and makes you want to read the next book in the series.
The characters: I thought they are a lot of characters. I was getting confused on who's who and why are they in the story. Bella was definetly a spoiled little girl and you tell. She was also a little whiny about everything like moving and school. I thought the characters were okay and not very relatable. Meaning someone I would want to hang around. Lindy I thought was trying to hard to be liked by Matt, And Matt was weird liking her since she was trying to impress him.
Overall it was okay with the character and the plot was good.

Liar by Justine Larbalestier


Micah will freely admit that she’s a compulsive liar, but that may be the one honest thing she’ll ever tell you. Over the years she’s duped her classmates, her teachers, and even her parents, and she’s always managed to stay one step ahead of her lies. That is, until her boyfriend dies under brutal circumstances and her dishonesty begins to catch up with her. But is it possible to tell the truth when lying comes as naturally as breathing? Taking readers deep into the psyche of a young woman who will say just about anything to convince them—and herself—that she’s finally come clean, Liar is a bone-chilling thriller that will have readers see-sawing between truths and lies right up to the end. Honestly.
I didn't really like this book. It was okay in the beggining but got worse and worse as the story went on.
The plot was really weird. The whole story was about Zach dying and her being and wolf and a very bad liar. I hated how it was told and the plaot was to me always saying the same thing over and over.
The characters I hated. Micah to me was naggy nad always saying how being a wolf was bad then later how it was good. Which really annoyed me.
The other characters were just as bad.
Her lying was annoying even though it was the whole point of the story.
I basicaly did not really like the story at. Which is weird since a lot of other people liked it.

Christmas Books

I do this every year, almost the whole month of December I read basically only Christmas books and I was wondering if you could help me find some good ones to read this. I read the same books every year and it gets kinda boring. So this year i really want to find some new ones.

I own Ex-mas so don't add that

If you could it would be greatly appreciated.

The Hollow by Jessica Verday

When Abbey's best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone else is all too quick to accept that Kristen is dead?and rumors fly that her death was no accident. Abbey goes through the motions of mourning her best friend, but privately, she refuses to believe that Kristen is really gone. 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. How could Kristen have kept silent about so much? And could this secret have led to her death? As Abbey struggles to understand Kristen's betrayal, she uncovers a frightening truth that nearly unravels her—one that will challenge her emerging love for Caspian, as well as her own sanity.


Review:The Hollow was pretty good. I loved the characters and the plot and the writing had a lot of details.

The plot was interesting it had lots of turns and you were always learning something new. I didn't really like how the book ended it ended kinda weird and abrupt to me.

The character. Abbey I thought grew all through the story like learning about Kristen took a toll on her and made her kinda crazy and she was very sheltered and it annoyed me how she was always at the cemetary.Caspian sounded okay he didn't blow me away he sounded kinda weird. The other characters were okay and not that good.

Overall the book was okay not the best but wasn't horrible.

Viola In Reel Life by Adriana Trigiani


I'm marooned.
Abandoned.
Left to rot in boarding school . . .
Viola doesn't want to go to boarding school, but somehow she ends up at an all-girls school in South Bend, Indiana, far, far away from her home in Brooklyn, New York. Now Viola is stuck for a whole year in the sherbet-colored sweater capital of the world.
Ick.
There's no way Viola's going to survive the year—especially since she has to replace her best friend Andrew with three new roommates who, disturbingly, actually seem to like it there. She resorts to viewing the world (and hiding) behind the lens of her video camera.
Boarding school, though, and her roommates and even the Midwest are nothing like she thought they would be, and soon Viola realizes she may be in for the most incredible year of her life.
But first she has to put the camera down and let the world in.
I thought this book was really cute. It was very relatable. The characters were funy and good.
I liked that Viola liked filming and movies which not really books focus on so the book was different but was still familar with the boarding school theme. The plot started out kinda boring and got a little batter as it went on and the ending was kinda boring and a little dry and not the best.
The charters were great and relatable. Viola, she has a passion which many people do. And her roomates were great and all someting relatable to them like one her dad was in wheel chair and shse has really cute older brothers. Another gives boy advice.Her botfriend sounded okay he did seem to give a lot of gifts and kisses. Overall the charaters were good.

Braless In Wonderland by Debbie Reed Fischer


If you’re reading this and expecting a tale of some top model who wins the heart of a rock star, adopts a third world baby, launches her own clothing line, winds up on the cover of Us Weekly’s Who’s Hot issue, and gets her own reality show (or at least, her own E! True Hollywood Story), then I better warn you . . . That’s not exactly what happened to me
Allee Rosen is a lot of things: high school senior, overachiever, feminist, brainiac. The one thing she’s not is super model material. She leaves that to pretty people like her little sister (a.k.a. “The Fluff”). That’s why it’s a complete shock when Allee, not her sister, is the one spotted by modeling scouts at the mall and signed by a major modeling agency in Miami.
I thought this okay it wasn't the best but it was not my favorite book.
I enjoyed the characters. I thought Allee was cute and fun and someone I would want to be friends with. Actually all of the girls were good like a girl that you thought was all nice until you get to know her and she really is evil, and the girls that really are nice.
The plot was okay but it wasn't the best it could have been. I think the characters were thought out but the plot wasn't quite as good. 
3.5 out 5

The Lost Summer by Kathyrn Williams


For the past nine years, seventeen year-old Helena Waite has come to summer camp at Southpoint. Each July, the camp and its familiar routines, landmarks, and people have welcomed her back as a Southpoint sister. This year, however, she is returning not as a camper, but as a counselor. The only downside? Her best friend, Katie Bell, is still a camper.
All too quickly, Helena discovers that the innocent world of campfires, sing-alongs, and field days have been pushed aside for late night pranks on the boys' camp and stolen kisses in the hay loft. As she struggles to define herself, Helena begins to lose sight of what made camp special and the friendships that have sustained her for so many years. When Ransome, her longtime crush, becomes a romantic reality, things get even more confusing. It will take a life-threatening accident to show her what she's lost... and found.
Told with honesty and heart, Kathryn Williams' second novel tackles the timeless theme of growing up against the backdrop of summer camp--a place where innocence is safely guarded and sometimes lost .
I loved this book. The charaters were perfect and the plot was really good.
Helena was really good as a main character and don't have any complaints and Katie Bell (is this a name of a character in Harry Potter?) was a good best friend even though you don't get to know her that much and she gets in a fight with Helena.
I thought the writing was very good and had a lot details and you felt like you could understand what was happening.
The one thing I did not like was the ending I felt like it just stopped and you didn't get much information. I wanted to know what happened next but the book like stopped and ended at a really weird place.
Overall it was really good but the ending could have used some more work

Waiting On Wednesday (9)


This week's pick .....................Catwalk: Strike A Pose


The competition heats up at Fashion International High School. Bring it!Sashay, parlay! The design competition at Fashion International High School heats up as each design house struggles to produce its first—and hopefully award-winning—line. Tensions are cropping up in the House of Pashmina, and it’s not clear whether Pashmina and her best friends will weather the runway. They’d better scramble if they want to win a real shot at a fashion career and an all-expenses-paid trip to Florence!
I have seen that a few bloggers have received this and it is released next week. I own the first book Catwalk but have not had a chance to read it yet. So I can't wait to read this series. And maybe if I have this I will finally read catwalk. And these bothe sound really good.

Slept Away by Julie Kraut


Laney Parker is a city girl through and through. For her, summertime means stepping out of her itchy gray school uniform and into a season of tanning at rooftop swimming pools, brunching at sidewalk cafes, and—as soon as the parents leave for the Hamptons—partying at her classmates’ apartments.But this summer Laney’s mother has other plans for Laney. It’s called Camp Timber Trails and rustic doesn’t even begin to describe the un-air-conditioned log cabin nightmare. Laney is way out of her element—the in-crowd is anything but cool, popularity seems to be determined by swimming skills, and the activities seem more like boot camp than summer camp.Splattered with tie dye fall out, stripped of her cell, and going through Diet Coke withdrawal, Laney is barely hanging on. Being declared the biggest loser of the bunk is one thing, but when she realizes her summer crush is untouchably uncrushable in the real world, she starts to wonder, can camp cool possibly translate to cool cool? Summer camp might just turn this city girl’s world upside down!
This book was definetly a cute light summer read. It was not my favorite campy type book. It had your typical mean girls and a camp crush but they weren't put together or something right.
The plot was good but kind of predictable. And the ending wasn't that good.
The characters were ok too. Laney was good but complained a lot but she did have a little sense of humor. And all the rest were ok.
I was actually expecting a better book and was kinda dissapointed.

This Week's Pick.............The Mark by Jen Nadol

Releases Date January 19, 2010


Sixteen-year old Cassie Renfield has seen the mark since forever: a glow around certain people as if a candle were held behind their back.
The only time she pointed it out taught her she shouldn’t do it again, so Cassie has kept quiet, considering its rare appearances odd, but insignificant. Until she watches a man die. Mining her memories, Cassie realizes she can see a person’s imminent death. Not how or where, only when: today.
Cassie searches her past, her philosophy lessons, even her new boyfriend for answers, always careful to hide her secret. How does the mark work? Why her? Most importantly, if you know today is someone’s last, should you tell?
This sounds really good. It sounds like a lot of books coming out lately but it still sounds really good.
I wish I had a copy

The Geek Girl's Guide To Cheerleading by Charity Tahmaseb and Darcy Vance


When Bethany–self-proclaimed geek girl–makes the varsity cheerleading squad, she realizes that there’s one thing worse than blending in with the lockers: getting noticed. She always felt comfortable as part of the nerd herd, but being a member of the most scrutinized group in her school is weighing her down like a ton of textbooks.
Even her Varsity Cheerleading Guide can’t answer the really tough questions, like:
How do you maintain some semblance of dignity while wearing an insanely short skirt?
What do you do when the head cheerleader spills her beer on you at your first in-crowd party?
And how do you know if your crush likes you for your mind or your … pom-poms?
One thing’s for sure: It’s going to take more than brains for this girl genius to cheer her way to the top of the pyramid.
I thought This book was ok. The plot was good. But I think the characters were weird and there was a few too many.
Ok about the characters. Bethany to me was kinda annoying and naggy. She seemed to complain too much about cheerleading and the uniforms and everything else. And she magically gets the best basketball player to fall for her. Not Real even if you are a geek turn cheerleader. I think there were to many guy charcters I got them confused to much.
The plot was pretty good and seemed to progress pretty well.
Overallt I liked the book but was just not a huge fan of the characters

In My Mailbox (14)


I didn't get anything last week and didn't get anything this week until yesterday when I bought 3 books.I was at a bookstore and ther were like 20 books I wanted.


Coffeehouse Angel by Suzanne Selfors


When Katrina spots a homeless guy sleeping in the alley behind her grandmother's coffee shop, she decides to leave him a cup of coffee, a bag of chocolate-covered coffee beans, and some pastries to tide him over. Little does she know that this random act of kindness is about to turn her life upside down. Because this adorable vagrant, Malcolm, is really a guardian angel on a break between missions. And he won't leave until he can reward Katrina's selflessness by fulfilling her deepest desire. Now if only she could decide what that might be . . .




This looks really cute.And I love the cover it is super cute. And I have this is really good.



Face Value by Taryn Bell


Get ready to enter a world of high-fashion and high-drama with a fabulous new fiction series inspired by the hit TV show America's Next Top Model!

ALEXIS: With my red curls and blue eyes, I may seem like just another shy small-town girl. But I have some serious secrets up my sleeve.

CHLOE: I’ve inherited my supermodel mom’s looks, and everyone expects me to follow in her Jimmy Choos. The catch? My wildest dreams have nothing to do with a runway.

LINDSAY: Just call me the comeback kid. I used to be a celeb, but my star power dimmed. Now, I’m hoping that my beauty, brains, and a little bit of backstabbing will make me famous again.

SHIVA-ROSE: As the exotic international girl, I’ve got mystery working in my favor. But will a crush on the wrong guy threaten my shot at winning?







This sounds like my type of book. But I didn't find any reviews so I don't know what it's like. I am not a big fan of any of the covers in this series.








Eye Candy by Taryn Bell


The five girls from Book One are back, and this time there are boys involved. The competition heats up, and so do the crushes. On top of that secrets are revealed, including the fact that one of the competitors has already been kicked out of three different schools. If she can't make it this time, there won't be another chance, but will her efforts to save the world get in the way? Or can this free-spirit settle down and do what needs to be done?
Includes exclusive content from America's Next Top Model: an insider's view of a fashion shoot, tips for keeping cool when the pressure is on, how to deal with not getting the assignment, and much more all from former contestants and winners on the show!



This is the second book in the series. I don't like this cover either. But the books still look good.

I had to go Barnes and Noble while we up in Milwaukee (which is the closest I can get to a book store about 30 minutes away). While I found Ash which sounds super good.

Secrets Of Truth And Beauty by Megan Frazer


When Dara Cohen was little, she was a bright, shiny star. She was the cutest seven-year-old who ever sang Ella Fitzgerald, and it was no wonder she was crowned Little Miss Maine.
That was then. Now Dara’s seventeen and she’s not so little anymore. So not little, that when her classmates find out about her illustrious resume, their jaws drop. That’s just one of her many problems. Another is that her control-freak mom won’t get off her case about anything. Yet the one that hurts the most is the family secret: Dara has an older sister her parents tried to erase from their lives.
When a disastrously misinterpreted English project lands her in the counselor’s office–and her parents pull her out of school to save face–Dara realizes she has a decision to make. She can keep following the rules and being misunderstood, or she can finally reach out to the sister she’s never met–a sister who lives on a collective goat farm in Massachusetts. Dara chooses B. What follows is a summer of revelations, some heartbreaking, some joyous; of friendship, romance, a local beauty pageant; and choices. And as autumn approaches, Dara finds she may have to let go of everything she’s taken for granted in order to figure out who she really is, and what family really means.



At the beginning I wanted to put this away I wasn't really into the book. I was starting to think it was a typical book where you find you have a long lost sister and you have parents who you hate. But as soon as she got to her sister Rachel's house itt got much better.

Dara the main character was okay and kinda complained about about her weight a lot but it has a lot to with story. Owen was your typical gay guy. And Rachel was okay too.

The plot took a while to get into but in the was good but the ending was predictable. Actually the whole book was kinda predictable .

Overall it was good but predictable

Way To Sore To Read

Since swim team started yesterday I have been super sore and tired. So saying that I have not been able to read mainly because I just want to lay down and sleep and eat or I want to lay down and watch t.v.. So the past two days I have only read like 3 chapters that were like 3 pages long. So I don't know when I 'll be able to post again. And feel like reading I think now is the time for that reading slump where you've read so much and just want a break from reading.

And my coach said the soreness should last only week but I think it might be longer for me. And I have to get used to swimming a lot. And running (which I hate greatly) and lifting lots of weights.

Oh and I hate waking up early to get ready for practice at 8.
And one day I don't when this month we have one practice at 7.

The past two days have been sleep,eat,lift weights, sleep, eat and swim eat sleep. In that order all day.

If you feel like knowing right know my abs (which don't really exist),shoulders, thigh,calf and my upper arm all hurt.

This weeks pick...................................Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl



There were no surprises in Gatlin County. We were pretty much the epicenter of the middle of nowhere.At least, that's what I thought.Turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong.There was a curse.There was a girl.And in the end, there was a grave.Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.




For some odd reason lately I have been into books like this which is not my normal type of books.

But I love the idea of this and I have heard its really good.

Now I really wish I had a copy of this

Hancock Park by Isabel Kaplan




Becky Miller lives in the best neighborhood, goes to school with the children of movie stars, and has her psychiatrist on speed dial. She may live in the City of Angels, but this sixteen-year-old's life is far from perfect.
By day, Becky navigates the halls of one of L.A.'s most elite schools, where the mean girls are a special breed of mean, and at night, she deals with sparring parents, a grandmother who is man-crazy, and a younger brother, Jack, who answers only to J-zizzy. As Becky's life comes crashing down around her, she struggles to put it back together and learn to grow up while trying to stay sane.
Isabel Kaplan dishes the dirt on the children of Hollywood's elite—from Spago delivered to campus at lunch and shrinks who dole out psychotropic drugs as though they're candy to parent-free parties at the Four Seasons—the lives of Becky and her creator, Isabel Kaplan, are like no other, and yet strangely, just like everyone's.

I thought this book was ok. I didn't really like Becky she complained a lot and was always talking about all these different doctors she had to go to and all the meds she was taking for all these weird disorders she had.

The book was kinda typical I have no friends,my best friend moved away, and parents getting a divorve book. And then she becomes best friends with the popular group and follows them and does some naughty things. And then she the boyfriend who she thought was great and ended up being hoorible. So I didn't really like the plot it was good but not really all that good.

Overall I kinda liked the book but not really

This is Kinda Like My Last Of Summer

I mean that because starting tomorrow I will start my swimming season. My first as a High Schooler. We have two practices a day ffrom 8-10 am and 4-6:30 pm. Well that takes up a lot of the day. And since I can't drive and my mom is at work in the morning I am having another girl take me to practice in the morning which means I have even less of a day.

Oh and is every day all week. Until School starts. (in almost a month a little less)

And during the school year we have practice every day all week but only after school. Or at least I think. Because I know some other sports practice at like 6 until school starts.


And we have meets during the school week too.


I feel like I have had no summer this year since I was taking summer school all morning. And I have only had 16 days off this summer to do nothing at all. And 9 of those I was on vacation.

Bye-bye summer. Hello swimming and school.

Oh since I am curious what day do you start school again? (if you are still in school)

The One by Ed Dector


She doesn't know the rules.
But a girl like her doesn't need to.


Chloe Gamble knows three things: she's better than the tiny Texas town she grew up in; there's just one person she can trust; and she wants to be famous.

And what Chloe wants...Chloe gets.



I have to say I really liked this. The plot was well thought out and very entertaining. The begining was really interesting and was about why she a career in acting.Then she becomes famous for a not so reason and then is everyone looking for her she gets a job in a movie and is famous. And becomes even more famous when she gets a job in a tv show where she is the main character.That just sounds so easy. I really doubt you can a acting job that easy.
The characters were okay. Chloe seemed to always get what she wanted and was a little demanding but was determined to get what she wanted. The rest were kinda interesting. But I did like how it was told in three different points of view. Nika's Manuscript notes, Chloe as the main narrative and Travis's emails.
Overall this was good and makes me want to read the next in the series. Vip Lounge coming out in December.

I had a pretty good week. I got some books for review and I bought some.





For Review: (All from Scholastic or Point)



Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater




For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf--her wolf--is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again.
Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human--or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.




This looks really good and I have read a lot of great reviws.

How To Steal A Car By Pete Hautman



Some girls act out by drinking or doing drugs. Some girls act out by sleeping with guys. Some girls act out by starving themselves or cutting themselves. Some girls act out by being a bitch to other girls.
Not Kelleigh. Kelleigh steals cars.



This looks pretty good. I had never heard of it before I got it in the mail. It also only has like 200 pages altogether with the pages up front too. This comes out in September if you want to know.






Love In The Corner Pocket by Marlene Perez


Chloe is used to seeing all the angles on the table, so she's shocked when Alex turns up at Gino's Pizza and turns her life upside down. Not only does he confuse her and steal her best friend Bridget, but -- perhaps worst of all -- he threatens to beat her at pool.




This looks really cute.







The School For Dangerous Girls by Eliot Schnefer
Hidden oak is a reform school for dangerous girls. But even if it was founded with good intentions, its methods are questionable, as Angela Cardenas discovers within hours of arriving at the isolated campus. The school is structured like a jail, intended to keep the “dangerous” girls in and intruders out. Physical punishment and strange psychological exercises are commonplace. No one really knows what’s going on, but it soon becomes apparent that there is no escape from Hidden Oak. And even if some of the girls have been deemed capable of getting better, the others’ situations have been manipulated so these girls seem even more dangerous than ever, especially to outside eyes. It’s an endless cycle that feeds itself; it’s a dangerous incarcerating institution—and some girls are inmates for life.

I am not sure about this book because I have heard it wasn't the best.





And I received another copy of Wherever Nina Lies by Lynn Weingarten (hope you don't mind I don't put up cover and summery)



The Bought:



Prohecy Of The Sisters by Michelle Zink


An ancient prophecy divides two sisters-One good...One evil...Who will prevail?Twin sisters Lia and Alice Milthorpe have just become orphans. They have also become enemies. As they discover their roles in a prophecy that has turned generations of sisters against each other, the girls find themselves entangled in a mystery that involves a tattoo-like mark, their parents' deaths, a boy, a book, and a lifetime of secrets. Lia and Alice don't know whom they can trust.They just know they can't trust each other.




This looks amazing and I have also read a lot of great reviews.










L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad









Los Angeles is all about the sweet life: hot clubs, cute guys, designer . . . everything. Nineteen-year-old Jane Roberts can't wait to start living it up. She may be in L.A. for an internship, but Jane plans to play as hard as she works, and has enlisted her BFF Scarlett to join in the fun.
When Jane and Scarlett are approached by a producer who wants them to be on his new series, a "reality version of Sex and the City," they can hardly believe their luck. Their own show? Yes, please!
Soon Jane is TV's hottest star. Fame brings more than she ever imagined possible for a girl from Santa Barbara—free designer clothes, the choicest tables at the most exclusive clubs, invites to Hollywood premieres—and she's lapping up the VIP treatment with her eclectic entourage of new pals. But those same friends who are always up for a wild night are also out for a piece of Jane's spotlight.
In a city filled with people chasing after their dreams, it's not long before Jane wakes up to the reality that everyone wants something from her, and nothing is what it seems to be.




I have never seen the Hills or Laguna Beach. But I still want to read the book. It is a lot like the type of books I really love. And I love the cover.

Sorry about all the picture sizes looking weird and way different.

August 07, 2009

Waiting on Wednesday on a Friday (5)

Since I was gone on Wednesday and didn't think about posting this I will post this today.

This week's choice is........................... Tempted by P.C. and Kristen Cast


So…you’d think after banishing an immortal being and a fallen High Priestess, saving Stark’s life, biting Heath, getting a headache from Erik, and almost dying, Zoey Redbird would catch a break. Sadly, a break is not in the House of Night school forecast for the High Priestess in training and her gang. Juggling three guys is anything but a stress reliever, especially when one of them is a sexy Warrior who is so into protecting Zoey that he can sense her emotions. Speaking of stress, the dark force lurking in the tunnels under the Tulsa Depot is spreading, and Zoey is beginning to believe Stevie Rae could be responsible for a lot more than a group of misfit red fledglings. Aphrodite’s visions warn Zoey to stay away from Kalona and his dark allure, but they also show that it is Zoey who has the power to stop the evil immortal. Soon it becomes obvious that Zoey has no choice: if she doesn’t go to Kalona he will exact a fiery vengeance on those closest to her. Will Zoey have the courage to chance losing her life, her heart, and her soul?

I love this series and really want to know how it continues. I love the cover. But it looks different from the rest of the series.

I'm Back from vacation

I am finally back from Niagra Falls (which is very pretty). I had a great time. And as soon as I catch up on my sleep, unpack and a few other things I might give a info on our trip.

Oh And I found a few good books on my counter when I got back. Thanks to my neighbor for watching my cat and her finding my package and bringing it in.

I got two books this week



The Comeback by Marlene Perez


I was offered a copy the day after my Wow post.


Sophie Donnelly is one half of the most popular and powerful couple in school, until new girl Angie Vogel shows up and compromises everything. Angie steals Sophie's starring role in the school play, and, worse, her super-popular boyfriend. Sophie has been quickly dispatched to social Siberia, but not for long--she'll do anything it takes to make a triumphant comeback.














Celebrity Skin:Fame Unlimited by Liane Bonin



I ordered this from amazon.com. They had it on bargain price and decided to finally get. I had been contamplating for a while to get and when it was on bargain price I had to get it. I just happened to get the last bargain price copy. They have full priced ones too.



This is the exact type of book I love I am so excited to read it. I just need the rest of the sereis but no one has it.



Nowadays, Taylor Christensen is gorgeous, rich, and one of the biggest stars around, but the day Erin Kim met her, Taylor was on the middle school D-list, with the headgear to prove it. Erin, under her own stress from her traditional Koreanborn parents who don't want her to change, was there for Taylor when she needed a friend way back when, and she was there for her when the braces came off and the whole world noticed. Sure, Taylor had the "it" Hollywood was looking for, but someone had to help her deal with the ups and downs of superstardom. Erin didn't mind-especially since it helped her get her mind off some tough problems at home. Through it all, Erin was Taylor's one true friend. But as Erin watches her best friend self-destruct, she knows that telling Taylor the truth about what she's become could end their friendship once and for all.

What did you get this week?

Heartless cover

This is the next book in the pretty little liars series by Sara Shepard that is is amazing and you should definetly read them.


I personaly am not a big fan of the creppy looking doll figures on the covers.


But I can't change it.

July 31, 2009

I am Finally Done With Health Class!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been taking a summer school class this June and July. Well I have been taking health which is required for all freshman and I have been taking it now instead of during the school year. And I have been told we have to do so much less work then they do during hte school year. Now I have a half credit before I start even High School. Yeah. I even took my first ever final exam not that it was fun but it's still cool.

Now I have more time to read.

One problem. I am going on vacation and the week after that Swim Team starts. They have to practices a day.I think like 9-11 and 3-5:30 or something like that. And I will even less time to read.

My summer is going by so fast.

Leaving On Vacation

I will be leaving tomorrow to go vacation to Niagra Falls. We will be going through a whole bunch states not really. I think we are going states like New York,Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan I can't think of any others. I am most likely not going to have any posts since I don't know how to schedule them.(will someone please tell me how). Well wish me luck during our our very car ride. But I will be bringing a lot of books.

Question: Does anyone else always bring way to many books to read with you vacation? And you actually read a few but you bring a lot.

July 29, 2009

Waiting On Wednesday (4)

I have decided to do three books this week one that is already released (released a week ago) and two that are coming up...........and they are Coffee House Angel and The Hollow and One A Witch.



The Hollow By Jessica Verday
Comes Out September 1,2009
When Abbey's best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone else is all too quick to accept that Kristen is dead?and rumors fly that her death was no accident. Abbey goes through the motions of mourning her best friend, but privately, she refuses to believe that Kristen is really gone. 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. How could Kristen have kept silent about so much? And could this secret have led to her death? As Abbey struggles to understand Kristen's betrayal, she uncovers a frightening truth that nearly unravels her—one that will challenge her emerging love for Caspian, as well as her own sanity.



I love the idea of this book. I can't wait to read it and really wish I had a copy.



Once A Witch by Carolyn MacCullough
Comes Out Sepember 14 ,2009


Tamsin Greene comes from a long line of witches, and she was supposed to be one of the most Talented among them. But Tamsin's magic never showed up. Now seventeen, Tamsin attends boarding school in Manhattan, far from her family. But when a handsome young professor mistakes her for her very Talented sister, Tamsin agrees to find a lost family heirloom for him. The search—and the stranger—will prove to be more sinister than they first appeared, ultimately sending Tamsin on a treasure hunt through time that will unlock the secret of her true identity, unearth the sins of her family, and unleash a power so vengeful that it could destroy them all. This is a spellbinding display of storytelling that will exhilarate, enthrall, and thoroughly enchant.





This looks really good. And I love these types of books. I like the cover too. I wish I had a copy.





Coffee House Angel by Suzanne Selfors


Came Out July 21
When Katrina spots a homeless guy sleeping in the alley behind her grandmother’s coffee shop, she decides to leave him a cup of coffee, a bag of chocolate-covered coffee beans, and some pastries to tide him over. Little does she know that this random act of kindness is about to turn her life upside down. Because this adorable vagrant, Malcolm, is really a guardian angel on a break between missions. And he won’t leave until he can reward Katrina’s selflessness by fulfilling her deepest desire. Now if only she could decide what that might be . . .

This is another one of those books where this is the type of books I love and I love the cover it is just super cute.
I wish I had a copy.










All of these books I really want a copy of. They all look great and can't want to read to them.

July 26, 2009

I got a new bookshelf

When my grandma was at my house last month she brought me a bookshelf that used to belong to the library she works out. It was this really weird dark purple color. So finally last weekend me and my dad painted it a very light blue since it's not going in my room but a hallway and under a window it had to be light and nuetral color. And today I finaaly made time to put put all the loose books on my floor and my immediate to read pile on it. And it almost full already. It's not the biggest bookshlef just 3 shelves if you include the bottom. But I am excited to get a new one.

Another story about bookshelves. So last year my dad made each me and my brother a bookshelf however we wanted it and would at least fit our rooms. I chose a 5 shelf one and is wide but not deep. I basically have that full well 3.5 shelves it. I have one shelf where I keep things like jewelry and other nick knacks. I am just shocked that I have like almost two full bookshelves which is little compared to some blogers but is a lot to me.

Amazon.com Question

I want to make a amazon purchase which I never done well I have but I have some pre-order books. And I want to ask if you preorder books and get some books that are availble now do you have to wait till all the books are available or do they all ship separtly? Or should I just make a few orders for the books availble now and then all my preorders each in separate orders. And I don't want ot pay extra feees on anything.

Hopefully my questions make sense to you since I really need a answer.

Library Loot (3)

Another slow week with one book that I won froma contest. Thank Book and Literature for Teens for holdong the contest.



Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson

Scarlett Martin has grown up in a most unusual way. Her family owns the Hopewell, a small hotel in the heart of New York City. Her nineteen-year-old brother, Spencer, is an out of work actor facing a family deadline to get his career in order. Eighteen-year-old Lola has the delicate looks of a model, the practical nature of a nurse, and a wealthy society boyfriend. Eleven-year-old Marlene is the family terror with a tragic past.

When the Martins turn fifteen, they are each expected to take over the care of a suite in the once elegant, now shabby Art Deco hotel. For Scarlett’s fifteenth birthday, she gets both a room called the Empire Suite, and a permanent guest named Mrs. Amberson. Scarlett doesn’t quite know what to make of this C-list starlet, world traveler, and aspiring autobiographer who wants to take over her life. And when she meets Eric, an astonishingly gorgeous actor who has just moved to the city, her summer takes a second unexpected turn.

With Mrs. Amberson calling the shots, Spencer’s career to save, Lola’s love life to navigate around, and Marlene’s prying eyes everywhere, things won’t be easy. Before the summer is over, Scarlett will have to survive a whirlwind of thievery, Broadway glamour, romantic missteps, and theatrical deception.

The show, as they say, must always go on . . . .
Okay I have a very short story about this book. I have checked this out twice before from the library and started once and the other time returned it for some reson. And know it feel weird getting this book because I have strated it nad returned it before.
I guess I'm weird

Summer Intern by Carrie Karsoyov


To do:
Secure models for photo shoot.
Fetch dry cleaning when it arrives from Paris.
Walk big star's makeup artist's assistant's dog.
Snag invitation to tonight's hot party downtown.
I'm Kira Parker, total fashion junkie. I thought I had it made when I landed a summer internship at Skirt, the preeminent fashion magazine. Ha. Don't get me wrong—working at Skirt, and spending the summer in New York City without my parents, is amazing. But now I'm up against Daphne Hughes, daughter of the magazine's owner. She's already got the guy of my dreams and all the right connections. Now she thinks she'll get the plum position working for the editor in chief without even lifting a diamond-adorned pinky? This catwalk is primed for battle.
Review:I really enjoyed Jet Set by these authors so I thought I would try this one. I was really expecting a book full of snotty characters but Kira the main character is super relatable and is not at all snotty like some of the other characters. She was a great main character but one thing that did bother me was how she was always ready to do extra things and really seemed like a goody two shoes to me even though I know she really wanted to Geniveve's intern. The other characters were okay it had your typical gay guy, the hot guy you like but can't go out with, the snotty mean girl who thinks she is the best, and the guy you are dating who you don't really like because there is another guy you like better who you have.
The plot was kinda similar to Jet Set. They both have major twists that you never expect. I loved the plot though. It was kinda typical work at a fashion magazine book but it had things I have never seen in a book like this. So overall it was a okay book not great but not boring.

Animal Encounters

We found a racoon last night out in our yard in broad daylight. That is rare to see. I took pictures but all of them are blurry. We think it was hurt because it's back leg or one them when it was walking looked weird.

Then Wednesday night we saw a little bunny in our yard who was just sitting there. And didn't move when we came close. So then I saw it's neck was injured we thought it was sick. Thursday our neighbor told us there dog bit it and had to stop to the dog from killing it.

We had a weird week with strange animal encounters.

I am not a huge fan of the new layout. And the colors.

And has anyone seen the new tie in covers for the webseries. They I think are worse than the originals.

Which Cover do you like better????

I was searching through Barnesandnoble.com and found the paperback for Living Dead Girl By Elizabeth Scott and I want to know which you like better. The paperback comes out September 8 if you want to know.



Hardcover




Paperback



I like them both. I love the dress and the leaves it leaves this vibe that I you don't know about. And the paperback is so simple and really leaves me wondering what is this about and it seems very mysterious. So I like them both and don't know which ones better.

Which One Do You Like Better??????



I decided to put another set of cover in here. I don't like either one but I want to know what tou think.


Paperback


Hardcover

I really don't like either cover. The paperbook looks weird, like her legs all discombonulated. And the hardcover it just looks plan weird.

Which Do You Like Better????

Cover Crush (2)

I changed the name this week.



This week my choice is................ L.A. Candy By Lauren Conrad




Los Angeles is all about the sweet life: hot clubs, cute guys, designer . . . everything. Nineteen-year-old Jane Roberts can't wait to start living it up. She may be in L.A. for an internship, but Jane plans to play as hard as she works, and has enlisted her BFF Scarlett to join in the fun.

I have never saw the Hills or Laguna Beach but this book sounds a lot like the type of books I love to read. But I love the hearts and the one red one. It just so simple its good. I can't say much about why I love the cover but I do.

After The Moment by
Garret Freymann-Weyr


Maia Morland is pretty, only not pretty-pretty. She?s smart. She?s brave. She?s also a self-proclaimed train wreck.Leigh Hunter is smart, popular, and extremely polite. He?s also completely and forever in love with Maia Morland.Their young love starts off like a romance novel?full of hope, strength, and passion. But life is not a romance novel and theirs will never become a true romance. For when Maia needs him the most, Leigh betrays both her trust and her love.Told with compassion and true understanding, After the Moment is about what happens when a young man discovers that sometimes love fails us, and that, quite often, we fail love.

July 17, 2009

This is weird

I was looking at Barnesandnoble.com and I saw that the House Of Night Series was being released in Hardcover. When it was originally released in paperback. I did notice that the one that just came out and the one released in October are hardcover. But the rest of the series that first came out in paperback are now being released in hardcover. That's relly strange. Usually if a book is being released in hardcover it comes out before the paperback not after.

I really loved the series by the way.

July 15, 2009

Waiting On Wednesday (2)



This week I pick Ex-Mas by Kate Brian



Comes Out October 6,2009

Well I can't find a summary.


But I love anything by Kate Brian/ Kieron Scott. They are all amazing and I can't wait to read this. I also love this cover. I love the candy cane broken like that.

Harry Potter

I am a very bad Harry Potter Fan!!! I have owned the 5,6,and 7 book since they have come and I have not yet read the 6 and 7 one. I started Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince but I think I got sidetracked and started reading Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants Series. Which I know I got the month the 4 one came out which was the same time I was like half way through the 6 book.
I am now gonna have to read the 6 book before I see the movie but I don't know when I have time since I have so many book right now to read.

Touch By Francine Prose



What really happened at the back of the bus? Did they, or didn't they? Did she, or didn't she? Something happened to fourteen-year-old Maisie Willard—something involving her three friends, all boys. But their stories don't match, and the rumors spin out of control. Then other people get involved . . . the school, the parents, the lawyers. The incident at the back of the bus becomes the center of Maisie's life and the talk of the school, and, horribly, it becomes news. With just a few words and a touch, the kids and their community are changed forever. From nationally acclaimed author Francine Prose comes an unforgettable story about the difficulties of telling the truth, the consequences of lying, and the most dangerous twist of all—the possibility that you yourself will come to believe something that you know isn't true


This book kept me constantly confused. You were always wondering what just happened and everything seemed not in a specific order. Sometimes instead of going foward it went back and explained weird things. I thought Maisie was really whiney. She was always complaing by her stepmom and for the short time at her mom's her stepdad. She was also a really weird main character, like the story was oddly narrated. Oh she was also complaining about her therapy and lawyer she was always constantly naggging about how she doesn't want to go there but when she usually gets there she acts normal and sounds like she wants be there. Her three best friends who are guys sounded wierd and I think its highly unlikely that your three best friends are going to ask to touch your boobs. I know she was gone for a year and she all of a sudden grew boobs but I don't think they will ask to touch your boobs. So I know this sounds like a bad review but the book was okay not the best but not horrible.

The Market by J.M. Steele


I had never heard of this before and found it n the new table they had at the store.


This is not the cover I have but my cover was super hard to find and the one I found it was super small and blurry.


High school senior Kate Winthrop is about to find out just how much she's worth.

After stumbling across the Millbank Social Stock Market, Kate is horrified to discover that out of the 140 girls in her class, she's ranked a bleak 71. Sure, she's not drop-dead gorgeous, and her "fashion" choices leave a bit to be desired...but 71?! Determined not to accept her fate as a "junk bond," she and her best friends quickly set out to make her the fastest rising stock on the Market.
Armed with a sexy new haircut and killer wardrobe, Kate puts her plan into effect -- and the analysts take note. In a matter of weeks, her stock value soars, and "Blue Chip" status is within reach. But what begins as a fun social experiment quickly turns into an obsession, one that threatens to ruin her reputation, friendships, and a chance at first love. Will Kate survive the highs and lows of the Market, or will her security crash and burn?






Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

I begged my dad to go to Barnes and Noble on its release day to get this. I am so excited to read this. I loved Evermore and can't wait to find out what happens next.
Just as Ever is learning everything she can about her new abilities as an immortal, initiated into the dark, seductive world by her beloved Damen, something terrible is happening to him. As Ever’s powers are increasing, Damen’s are fading—stricken by a mysterious illness that threatens his memory, his identity, his life. Desperate to save him, Ever travels to the mystical dimension of Summerland, uncovering not only the secrets of Damen’s past—the brutal, tortured history he hoped to keep hidden—but also an ancient text revealing the workings of time. With the approaching blue moon heralding her only window for travel, Ever is forced to decide between turning back the clock and saving her family from the accident that claimed them—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows weaker each day...






I am really excited to read both of these. They both look really good.
