Books, funny things in my life, and pictures...


I have two book reviews to give, first, about the book Letters To Julia by Barbara Ware Holmes. I really enjoyed this book, and I only have a general complaint. During the middle of the book, the two protagonists are really depressed. I think that they were depressed a little long, and I would have believed the same out come with less of a "depressed" drag.

The other book I read was Snail Mail No More by Paula Danziger and Ann M. Martin. This is the sequel to P.S. Longer Letter Later. I really enjoyed the book, except that the ending was really bizarre. I was anticipating an ending after some events, then all of these random events happened. Well, some not really random, but still, they all came same at the same time...

Now for 3 funny things in my life


My Brother: *Picking something up from the back seat of the car* "Mom, why is there a rotten banana in the car?"

My Mom: "Well, it's a long story."


My brother pointing at the night sky and saying, "Look! It's the medium dipper!"


The plain fact that my father says, pellow, melk, and winder instead of pillow, milk, and window.

Now for some pictures!

I hope that you enjoyed all of this!

I have been bad lately...

Ok, so on Saturday, I took a lovely trip to Barnes and Noble, and I got two books The Future of Us and Happyface.

Yesterday, I finished The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler. This book is about two teenage high schoolers, Emma and Josh.

The book is set in 1996, when the internet just was public. The book starts with Josh bringing Emma a disc to get an AOL email. But when Emma creates her email, then looks in her favorite places links, before she had been on, there was already a link there. The link was to something call "Facebook" The problem is, Facebook isn't invented for 15 years. Then over the course of a week, Josh and Emma watch their  future Facebook pages change, as they do little things in the now, that they probably wouldn't have if they hadn't seen the page.

I hate to say it, but I'm going to be very judgmental about this book...

First of all, the idea is amazing, its like a "who wooda thought?" moment. Also, the writing style is very good.  I didn't have any problems with "saids" :)

I really was disappointed though with the ending, in some ways. The actual ending wasn't bad, I just wish they gave us more... I wish they would have shown the Facebook pages of Josh and Emma at the end. The ending didn't feel like an end, maybe the end of of a chapter, but not and ending.

Now I'm reading Happyface which is totally amazing! :)

Valentines are cheesy, except when you get candy...

Bonjour bloggies!

Recently, I tried to continue with the book Messenger by Lois Lowrey, sadly, I was very disappointed with the story line, and I think The Giver trilogy, would have been perfect as just a twosome.

Next I've started the book Chu Ju's House by Gloria Whelan. Gloria is also the author of Homeless Bird.

Amazingly, I finally got a copy of the sequel to It's Raining Cupcakes by Lisa Schroeder. The sequel is called Sprinkles and Secrets.

Yesterday, while at the library, I found the book The Always War by Margaret Peterson Haddix. She is the author of The Missing Series, the Shadow Children Series, and one of the only other books I've read by her is Running Out Of Time.

So far so good with my trio of readables. <------ Totally made up word from the world of Remedyleaf!

Word of the Day: lovable (<------ Word picked by an anonymous friend) Deffinition: Of such nature to attract love
Quote of the day: A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.- Ingrid Bergman

I got bored with Small As an Elephant so I decided to read Gathering Blue by Lois Lowrey. This book is the sequel to The Giver which I read not too long ago!

Anyway, Gathering Blue was fantastic! I loved the characters, and everything was perfect throughout the book. I can't even remember if there was anything I didn't like! Usually I have at least one thing to say that's fairly negative ;)

After finishing that, I started Messenger by Lois Lowrey. This book is the sequel to Gathering Blue. I will say, it doesn't matter if you read The Giver or Gathering Blue first, but you must read both of them before Messenger.

As a bonus, I started Letters to Julia by Barbara Ware Holmes. (This book is not to be confused with the well known story Letters to Juliet)
