On The Bright Side, I am Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God
Louise Rennison
$8.99 U.S.
Synopsis by Barnes and Noble:
Disaster strikes again in this fabbity-fab-fab sequel to Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging. Georgia's little sister, Libby, has been leaving sticky surprises in her bed. Her faithful Scottish wildcat, Angus, is suddenly spending all his time with a good-looking feline next door. Then there's her nose. Will it ever stop growing?
But there's always a bright side, and this time it's ultra bright since Georgia is dating the Sex God (aka Robbie). Eveything should be just perfect...until her pathetically unhip parents announce that the family is moving to New Zealand. New Zealand? Life is officially over, but Georgia's response to adolescence is so hilarious that readers will be laughing out loud through this uproarious sequel.
My Thoughts:
In the words of Georgia this book was "fabbity-fab-fab"! I am absolutely in love with this series. I constantly fins myself laughing about things that happened in this book. Georgia is a hysterical character, there is no way you cannot love her. This book was light and fun, and I could barely put it down. In her new adventure Georgia finds herself dating the Sex God a.k.a Robbie so life is perfect. But then Vati has to go and ruin everything by deciding to moving the familt to Kiwi a go-go land a.k.a New Zealand. I love these books, because Georgia is such a compelling character. So many things happen to her, but she keeps on going. The books are also catchy, I often find myself speaking in "Georgia" now! This book was amazing!
Anyway looking for a good read, and a good laugh.

Dear Blog

Dear Blog,
I am sorry to have neglected you for so long! I am ashamed that you sat here lonely and in need of a post for 26 whole days! Well that is going to change and this time I mean it! I promise you that I will at least post once and week, and I will spend more time reading for fun. I will not let homework completely rule my life (just enough that I still get good grades). Again I apologize for leaving you alone for so long, and after I finish this note I am going to update you with a new review.I hope you can forgive me!

I Heart You, You Haunt Me

Oh goodness it has been forever since I posted. College started Monday so I have been super busy. From the look of my classes I will not be able to read as much as I hoped this term :( I am going to try and keep up on posting but I may have to cut back to 2 or 3 a week now. SO with no further ado here is a review. I met Lisa Shroeder last Friday night, and I just had to buy her book. It is an amazing story, and she is an amazing lady and I was glad I took some time out to read this.

Simon Pulse Publishing
$7.99 U.S.
Synopsis by Barnes and Noble:
Girl meets boy.
Girl loses boy.
Girl gets boy back...
...sort of.
Ava can't see him or touch him, unless she's dreaming. She can't hear hisvoice, except for the faint whispers in her mind. Most would think she'scrazy, but she knows he's here.
Jackson. The boy Ava thought she'd spend the rest of her life with. He's back from the dead, as proof that love truly knows no bounds.
My Thoughts:
This book was amazing. It was written in verse form which made it very easy to read, but also provided it with a flow that can only be described as elegant. I loved this book. It was a heartfelt story of not only loss, but guilt and in the end moving on. I loved Ava's character. I felt like by the end of the book I truly did know her. I think the way that Lis wrote her was very believable, and she was easy to connect with. I also really enjoyed her friends. They reminded me of my friends, and it was fun seeing how each was difference but how they held eachother together. The ending was amazing. Lisa did an amazing job of creating an ending that left a reader with a sense of relief and closure.
It is a quick read and I think everyone should read it!!
