WINTER HIATUS!

WINTER HIATUS!

So it’s almost winter break! And that means midterms. Or winter finals. WHATEVER YOU CALL THEM. And it’s my first  year in high school so I am FREAKED OUTTTTT. So I’m taking 1-2 weeks off. This week is reviews and the second one are…the actual exams. Crapsticks. So yeah. I’m taking two weeks off. I WILL BE BACK FOR POSTING DURING XMAS WEEK BECAUSE I CAN’T RESIST THOSE. Plus I’m only doing this for necessities’ sake. Which sucks because I’d much rather be […]

Life of a Blogger: Home

Life of a Blogger: Home

Well this is sort of stalker-y. But I’ve moved about 13 different times (house wise), 4-5 different times (city-wise), and once (state-wise). I now reside in Houston of sunny Texas. Texas has so so so many cockroaches, but honestly I think I like TX more than CA. Although I do sort of miss the CA beaches. (AND NO FOR THE RECORD I HAVE NEVER SEEN A CELEBRITY. You have no idea how many people asked me this when I first moved here.) Oh, […]

No Place to Fall by Jaye Robin Brown

No Place to Fall by Jaye Robin Brown

First of all, guys, how adorable is that cover? I love it–and the story itself. no Place to Fall is one of those stories that sounds like they have a sort of typical girl-meets-guy plot, but there’s so much more to the story than that. It’s gorgeous with a country attitude that just feels different. The setting, first of all. It’s rare when I bring up the town in a contemporary novel, but Brown does such a brilliant job with it that it’s […]

The Secret Side of Empty by Maria E. Andreu

The Secret Side of Empty by Maria E. Andreu

  I was so unbelievably excited to read this story, especially since it was a topic that’s typically untouched in YA. And after seeing so many fantastic reviews of this one, it immediately shot to one of my most anticipated–of course I had to wait a while to finally get a copy, but once I did I pretty much dropped everything and read it right then. I did love it! I loved the raw quality of MT, I loved her bravery, I loved […]

FF Thinks: Pre-Blogging Books

FF Thinks: Pre-Blogging Books

We all know those books that we read before we blog. When we reread them we either hate or love or we don’t reread them because we’re scared of…not loving them so much. Yep. SO IN CELEBRATION OF MY RECENT BLOGOVERSARY, I decided to do something…pre blogging. Randomly I know I started blogging Nov 26, 2011 (holy crapsticks) but I’m moving up the timetable to about March/April 2012 since that’s when I started taking blogging seriously. Sooooo. Well yeah.   What books do […]
