Just Got Back From The Theater!

Hi! I just got back home from the theater after seeing Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows! It was amazing! I absolutelyyyy loved it! Although it was full of awesomeness it was also very sad in parts I cried when poor Doby got killed :( But all in all I give it an A +++++. Well goodnight I am now off to re-read Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows for the 5th time :)

Andrea The Oddball

I am sure everybody in my neighborhood now thinks I am a weirdo. I was setting in my car parked at the end of the neighborhood waiting for my sister's bus to come, And to pass the time I had brought a book with me. Well I got to a really good part and sometimes when I'm byself I like to read aloud. So there I am setting in my car reading away and all these cars kept driving past me, and I could see all the people in their cars staring at me like who in the world is she talking too?? Ahhh well it was very comical even though it was a teensy bit embarssing.

I Am Currently Reading

Blue Plate Special by Michelle D. Kwasney. I will let you know how it is after I'm finished.

Book Review The Things I Know About Love by Kate Le Vann

Livia Stowe has never been lucky in love. While her firends were going to parties and dances and on dates, Livia was being shuffled in and out of hospitals, which made her dateing life a little difficult. But this summer is going to be different. Cancer-free for over a year Livia's boarding a plane to visit her brother as he studies abroad at Princeton University. She's determined to make the most of her trip, recording every moment of it on her private blog. Maybe she'll even have a fling with a cute collage boy! America is bright, exciting and filled with romantic possibilities. And then she meets Adam, and her plans fpr summer fun become so much more. Entranced by the magical New York City that he shows her, Livia is smitten, but is she really ready to risk her heart again? Things I know About Love is funny, unforgettable, and a bit heartbreaking just like first love can be.

That's what the front flap of the books says and it sure got that last part right. Things I Know About Love is amazing, its one of those books that after you read it you start thinking about things, big things and you start pondering life. Its one of those books that could change you. It started hilarious and ended heartbreakingly sad, but it was like taking a journey. I reccomend everyone read this book. You will find yourself loving the character of Livia, and when your finished you will find yourself relizing just how fleeting life is. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Book Review For Guardian Of The Dead by Karen Healey

Seventeen year old Ellie Spencer is just like any other teenager at her boarding school. She hangs out with her best friend Kevin, she obsesses over Mark a cute and mysterious bad boy and her biggest worry is her paper deadline. But then everything changes. The news headlines are all a buzz about a local string of killings that share the same morbid trademark, the victims were all discovered with their eyes missing. Then a beautiful but eerie woman enters Ellie's circle of friends, and develops an unhealthy fascination with Kevin, and a crazed old man grabs Ellie in a public square and shoves a tattered bible in her hands, exclaiming you need it; it will save your soul. Soon Ellie finds herself plunged into a haunting world of vengeful fairies in an epic battle for immortality.

Guardian Of The Dead was definitly a page turner. It had a little bit of everything, Mystery, Fantasy and even a bit of horror. I was sucked in right away and found myself pondering the story even when I wasn't reading. It will definitly keep you engrossed, trying to figure out all the mysterious things going on. And on top of all of that Ellie is a very likeable character. She had me rooting for her two pages in. All I can say after reading this book is GO READ IT!!
