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.
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.

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.

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.
Hopefully my questions make sense to you since I really need a answer.
Hancock Park by Isabel Kaplan
Keeping The Moon by Sarah Dessen
Fashionistas by Chloe Walsh
Truth or Fashion by Chloe Walsh
Juicy Secrets by Victoria Ashton
I have already read Fashionistas,Truth or Fasion and Juicy Secrets. I read Juicy Secrets and loved it and wanted to reread it. I read both book by Chlow Walsh but i wanted to reread them I don't know why. I read Truth or Fashion this year and wrote a review in January. Since I don't know how to a link (will someone please tell me) here is the URL. It happens to be my second post and my first ever review. So it's not the best.
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 . . . .

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.

Comes Out August 1, 2009
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.
This book looks so good. It's the kind of books I love to read. And I love Marlene Perez's other books. I love the cover on this book. Meaning I love her dress.
I really wish I had a copy.

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.

Alright I couldn't find it on google and the Simon and Schuster website dorsn't have a link to the photo so here is a link to the page on their website.
I posted the Amazon one too which is a little different. Instead of yellow it's green. I mean the title section. Thanks Callie for saying that.
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.

How To Teach Filthy Rich Girls by Zoey Dean
The books with stars I have read before and loved them and wanted to read them again. And the other ones like Eyes Like Stars I heard were good and wanted to read them. A ndI am slowly reading all of Sarah Dessen's books. Ans I wanted to know what Filthy Rich Girls was about and know more abnout the show Privliged which it is based of off.
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.
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????
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.
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 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.

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.

Evermore by Alyson Noel
Thanks Serena Robar for your giving it away thing all June where I won this.
I have already read this but I finally got my own copy.
Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people’s thoughts, and know a person’s life story by touch. Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste…
Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking—and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head. She doesn’t know who he really is—or what he is. Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.
And last week I got some non book stuff but they go along with Twilight. I got some Essence Of Twilight things. This was a contest win so I didn't actually buy them. They are supposed to smell like the character. I got Edward, Bella, Alice, Renesme, and Jacob and Promise which is the wedding scent. They all smell good except Jacob it smells like sunscreen. I some of the thing like I got Alice in a spray and Edward in Lip Balm and Lotion (the lip balm smells bad).
Here are the websites if you want to check them out.
