In My Mailbox

I haven't gotten anything for the past two weeks. I am kinda getting depressed because I am not getting books. But there is one good thing about not getting books you get to catch up on my huge evergrowing TBR pile. Hopefully I will get a few books in the next few weeks. But I almost bought a Sarah Dessan book yesterday but I didn't want to use the rest of my birthday money when I wasn't for I would like it.

Which weekly meme's should do?

I am thinking about doing some but I don't know which to do and the one's people actually look at? So could tell me the one's you look and enjoy looking at. I also need one's that don't take much time since I don't have a lot of time in a day to blog.

What would you think if I did a cover of the week post?

Please answer my few question it would be greatly appreciated.

Poseur by Rachel Maude

po·seur (noun): a person who pretends to be what he or she is not.Charlotte Beverwil, Janie Farrish, Melissa Moon, and Petra Greene attend exclusive Winston Prep in the Hollywood Hills. And that's all they have in common. But hang out together? They'd rather be hanged. Borrow one another's clothes? They'd sooner borrow a zit. So when these four sophomores are forced into a class to create their own fashion label, they Clash with a capital C. Janie thinks Melissa and Charlotte are Beverly Hills brats. They dismiss Janie as a Valley rat in sheep's clothing. And Petra, well . . . Petra couldn't care less. Can a cool coquette, a shy punk, a hippie goddess, and a ghettoglam egomaniac make beautiful couture together? At Winston Prep, survival of the fittest comes down to who fits in-and what fits.

This book I have to say was okay I liked more than I disliked. I t was a little hard to get into but after that I liked ithe characters were a little fake. They were all very different the only one I think that actually sounded somewhat read was Janie but she was still a little weird. The other characters were a little naggy and expected everything to be given to them. I like dthe book but I wasn't wowed by it. I was actually expecting more but it didn't really happen.

I read Good Fab and the Fabulous and liked that way better and will give this series another chance.

I hate the cover who would actually in real life wear those clothes. The colors are wierd and there are four main girls but only three are on the cover.

This Book Isn't Fat It's Fabulous by Nina Beck

Manhattan It Girl Riley Swain is no pudgy wallflower. She's brash, bold, fashionable, and yes, fabulous. Riley has no qualms about kissing her best friend's crush, or bribing her dad's lawyer. But this spring break, Riley's dad and wicked stepmother are shipping her off to New Horizons, a two-week fat camp in upstate New York. And it's miserable: like military school without carbs. But then Riley gets to know adorable Eric, who sees beyond Riley's tough exterior. Soon, Riley might just realize that maybe it's not her shape that will change at New Horizons. . . but her heart
I hated this book and this why I hated Riley the main character I think she was just way too confident and full of herself. The plot was super boring and really typical romance book going out with a boy you shouln't. So this book was really predictable and kinda boring. I thought it was wierd how she wasn't sure if she was in love with her best friend D and wasn't sure if she was in love with Eric. How can you not know and she figured it out by kissing both them. Her dad and stepmother (who she called Elizabitch) were strange her dad never paid attention to her and her stepmom acted and sounded really funny.

This is a combination of the last two weeks.

While I was in Washington D.C. we went to a Barnes and Noble (it was actually in Jamestown and was actually like thier college store where they sold textbooks and clothes) and I didn't buy a book which is a huge shocker for me but their teen section was just this puny wall.

When You Wish by Kristin Harmel

Star Beck is super-duper megastar famous. She rocks–literally–every night in concert for thousands of cheering fans. But the pop star life–tour buses, fauxmances, size 0 minis–is getting a little old. Star can’t help wondering what it would be like to be a regular girl–without paparazzi trailing her every move, and without people being nice just because, well, she’s Star Beck. And when she discovers that her mom has been lying to her for years about something very important, Star decides to find out what the world beyond her stage is like after all.In the blink of an emerald green eye, Star finds herself . . . buying a car. Eating cheeseburgers. Swapping her stilettos for flip-flops. Getting a job that doesn’t require dancing, winking, or mall appearances. And falling for the cutest, realest boy she’s ever met. But how will she know if he feels the same way? Because for once in her life, someone is going to have to like her for who she really is.
I loved this book. I loved all the really interesting plot changes and all the characters were funny and sounded real. Even though Star was a rockstar she sounded real and didn't demand fancy things special treatment which loved. I really liked Nick he funny and sounded cute and was a real gut I would date.
If you like this read : Secrets of my Hollywood Life Series by Jen Calonita (4 books out right now)This really reminded me of this series which I love and would also reccomend.

Review- Something, Maybe by Elizabeth Scott

Everyone thinks their parents are embarrassing, but Hannah knows she's got them all beat. Her dad made a fortune showcasing photos of pretty girls and his party lifestyle all over the Internet, and her mom was once one of her dad's girlfriends and is now the star of her own website. After getting the wrong kind of attention for way too long, Hannah has mastered the art of staying under the radar...and that's just how she likes it.
Of course, that doesn't help her get noticed by her crush. Hannah's sure that gorgeous, sensitive Josh is her soul mate. But trying to get him to notice her; wondering why she suddenly can't stop thinking about another guy, Finn; and dealing with her parents make Hannah feel like she's going crazy. Yet she's determined to make things work out the way she wants — only what she wants may not be what she needs....
This book was kinda slow at the begining , the first chapter was great but then it became slow. I was about to even quit reading it but I remembered all the great reviews. After the introduction part was over it got a little better but I thought it didn't get better until Hannah saw her dad. But I loved the ending and am glad who she ended up with and thought he was perfect.
I didn't really like the characters but I did like Hannah and Finn. I thought Josh was weird and her mom was too showy and emotional . I liked Finn little things he did and Hannah was funny and a great main character.
Overall I liked the book and would reccomend it.
I personally hate the cover she just looks really awdward and I hate the colors.
