Hey, you need to show me where your blog is. I wanna read it. Also, Shassie=love. I'm hungry, i'm at school right now and i'm about to see you at lunch. It's snowing, did i mention i'm bored? Cuz i am. You're probably not going to read this note for a while seeing as you sometimes forget to eat and can't be trusted to remember anything beyond that. I love you and I want in your pants. I need to eat food, see you later.
Hey, I just finished Bright Lights, Big A** (It would not let me post the actual title. Shelfari was all "Your message contains the following banned words: A** Remove them or Die! [Maybe not in those exact words]). I really liked. It was humorous, honest, violent :), and the writing was good, too. I think you would like it. I think you should read Bitter is the New Black first though, because it referred back to it a couple times, but not so much that this book didn't make sense. I plan to read it, but I don't think it matters too much in what order you read the books. I vote you read it. Yes. :)
Yeah, it's a good story... I think, I can't understand it very well, but what I can understand is really good! But yeah, he got paid by the word so he adds a lot of fluff. Though, I can understand, I always do that to reports that have a word minimum. Haha
Hmmm, well I guess their way makes sense. But I agree with you to still disagree. I think you have made great progress on your goal of reading every book in the world, you have a lot of the American ones down. You should break the books down by country. Read all the ones in the U.S., then Canada, then probably Mexico. Haha, you could do a blog about it like Julie and Julia! Though I think you would need more than a year as your deadline. But whatever, I can't wait to read Prophecy of the Stones though. I'm all excited now! But first I have to read A Tale of Two Cities :P I am reading it for World Studies Class.
Yeah, our public library isn't very well stocked either. I didn't know that it's a french translation?! That's very interesting, for that, it gets moved up my plan to read list. Lol. But american publishers should buy foreign book rights, you never know what you are missing. It could be the best book ever written, but we wouldn't know because it's in a different language!
Haha yeah, I remember you borrowed it from McKenna when we went to her birthday party forever ago and you spent the whole party reading it! Lol! But we were supposed to return it and we never did, so I thought, hey, since I have it, I mind as well read it. Haha.
Hey!! Gosh it has been crazy!! I knew you would love that series, once you start very hard to put down. You are going to be surprised!! All I am going to say is do not count Erik out yet or Aphrodite- You will come to like her!! Ok i am going to stop before i give to much away!! I finished the Gemme Doyle- WOW!! so many twist and turns, There were some surprised that iw as not expecting, but i love how she left it open that she could write another...kinda left it open. But i was sad with the ending of the third, but it did keep you on the seat of your pants!! I was impressed with the way she had the good go with the bad and that there were choices- it refreshing sometimes to not have the book go the way you think it is going to go-I am reading now Magic and Madness Triology, i flew threw the first one, very good also. I just started Magic Lessons, I don'tknow if the third is out yet. Well i can not wait will march cause alot comes out that i have been waiting for. I love Kelly Armstrong and Awaking is due out in march, so is Hunted (house of night 4th), Humm i can not remember the rest, i have to write tham all down so i do not forget!! I have a new Vampire series that a friend gave to me that i have not read yet- I will have to get the names and let you know, cause if you like LKH you will like these!! I started witht he Anita Series, I love them!!! Well have a good day and i willt alk to you soon!!
Don't forget book buddies next Wednesday. (It is a Silver Day...if that means anything) Also - don't let me forget to tell you about the Teen Literature Conference in Denver April 9th. I hope lots of you folks can go this year! Happy 3 day weekend!
Wow, Kira, you sure have given me quite a reading list, in fact, just reading your note should count as a whole novel in itself! Haha, just kidding.
Thanks for all the book recommendations, they all sound great. I'll definitely look into them!
I heard about some of the books that you mentioned now that I think of it, I've heard of Beauty, Blood and Chocolate, the Shopaholic series, and ... acutally, those are the only ones haha, but still, I was thinking about those! So thanks for the recommendations! :)
