Hi everyone, as of today I only have about 2 months until I graduate and head off to college. I will be attending Mohawk Valley Community College in August. I am going to be majoring in Educational Sign Language Interpretation. I take my placement test on May 3rd. I hope to be able to get a lot of reading done in my free time if I have any. I have plans of being an author still, but I’m not sure if I want to transfer after 2 years at MVCC and go somewhere else to get my degree in English Literature or if I want to just write and hope to get discovered and published. I will eventually figure it out and let you all know what my decision is. For now I wish you all happy reading and a good day. 🙂
Sorry I haven’t posted in a while I’ve been busy working and taking care of my new brother I haven’t been reading as much as I would like to, but I promise I will get back into the swing of reading every day and posting quite frequently about the books I do read. It might not be so frequently right now since I just started my senior year so I’ll be pretty busy filling out college applications and writing college admissions essays and things of that nature so I will post when I can I promise I haven’t forgotten about this I have just been really busy.
I was given this book by my Creative Writing teacher Mrs. Surianno and I have fallen in love with it. It’s about this very secretive circus that all of a sudden shows up in different places. It only opens at night and if you are there during the day they consider it to be trespassing. The main characters are Celia and Marco. Celia is now working as an illusionist in the circus that is owned by Marco’s boss. Marco is very attracted to Celia even though they are opponents in this game that they know nothing about except that the circus is the venue for the game. Each chapter switches from Marco to Celia, sometimes they switch within the chapter as well. Celia all though says she is an illusionist the magic she does is actually real. Her father is the famous magician that used to work at the circus, but he recently “died” and he is now following Celia around the circus and tries to tell her what to do as far as working and he expresses to her how much he dislikes how she is spending her free time. He thinks she should be working on her magic instead of reading or spending time with people. As far as I have gotten in it I am really enjoying it so far. I am on page 202 of 511. I recommend you all read this book.
Hi everyone sorry it’s taken me so long to update I’ve been a very busy girl lately. Since I haven’t gotten anyone of you lovely followers involved in a post before I figured I’d start now. 🙂 My birthday is coming up in a couple of months and I was wondering how many of you have any ideas on any good books that I might like and might want to put on my birthday wish list. I will read almost everything. I love a good romance every now and again and I also like action to be involved so if you have any recommendations for me leave me a little comment and let me know what you all think I should be reading these days. Even if you can’t give me the title of a book or series you can always give me genres of books or authors and I will look them up and see what they write and go from there. I would love to hear from you all. Please don’t be shy. You guys could give me ideas for other birthday gifts I might want too they don’t have to be books they could be anything because right now I have no idea what I want and I’m sure people will be asking for a list soon so they can plan ahead and get me my presents early.
Hi everyone I know this doesn’t directly go with the topic of the blog but I had to get this off my chest I promise I’ll tie it all into the topic of the blog somehow. I have recently lost a very near and dear friend. She was my best friend. We were basically joined at the hip before she got a new boyfriend and now she won’t even talk to me. She even said i wasn’t a true friend. It hurts even more when I read certain books and think, “why can’t my friendship be like theirs?” or “I wish I had a best friend like that.” She thought it was funny when I told her exactly how I felt about her boyfriend. I would love to reconcile our friendship, but I don’t want it to go back to the way it was before with her ditching me for her boyfriend and always fighting about things. I want my old best friend back. The one who I could tell anything to and joke around with, not the one who got mad at me for stupid reasons. I can’t even remember how many times I’ve sat in my room at night and cried because my friendship with this girl went from complete amazingness to complete nothingness in less than a week. I would work this out with her if she would take the time to actually talk to me instead of ignoring me completely. I don’t know if I will ever get my best friend back and that kills me inside, but it is what it is and I can’t do anything about it until she’s ready to get passed it with me. She is now the 4th friend I have lost in the past 3 years. I’m tired of losing friends because of stupid reasons. I’m done trusting people period. I’m quiet and by myself for a reason, I can’t get hurt if I don’t talk to anyone about things. Granted I do have a few people I do call my friends, but I like being alone sometimes just so I know I won’t be hurt by the ones I thought cared about me.
Hi everyone I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted and I’m sorry about that. I just thought you all would like to know that after searching in my room for a book that I know I own I could not find it so I ordered it from www.walmart.com It should be here by Valentines Day. I’m so excited since I haven’t read the series in a very long time. You may be asking yourselves what book is she talking about. Well it’s the Vampire Academy series. I lost the very first book. I know how can you lose a book that starts a series? It’s very easy when you lend it to someone and they never give it back to you. I think that’s what happened with my book. I think I gave it to a girl I used to work with and she never gave it back to me. I have every other book in the series except for that one. Haha I know you all must think I’m crazy, but that’s what we get when we are as big of a book nerd as I am. 😀 I will definitely be rereading the series once I get the book in.
That is the first book to the incredible series if anyone was wondering what it looked like. 🙂
During this time I have learned a lot about the whole blogging process. I have had many successes and many defeats during this time. I had a very difficult time trying to keep everyone entertained and informed on the world of books. I learned a lot about reading and writing books that I didn’t know already. The post about the author I learned a lot from. I had a difficult time trying to come up with different relevent to my topic posts to write about for everyone. I tried to keep all my posts on time so everyone had something new to read when they visited the blog. I learned that it isn’t all that easy to just start writing a book you have to start writing other things before you can start writing a novel about something. You should probably be interested in reading before you start getting interested in writing. If you get stuck and get a bad case of writers block just keep writing even if it sucks you can always junk it and write something better, but just keep writing or you will never finish what you started. If you really want to know if what you’re writing is any good or not ask your friends and family. They will be honest with you and tell you if you are any good, they won’t lie to you just to make you feel good about your work. If you never ask anyone to read your work you will be more than likely crushed when the editor tells you that you are no good at writing and then you will go home and never write again. Hopefully if you enjoy reading in school you will hopefully enjoy writing your own stories later on in life. I also learned that if you don’t enjoy reading in school it’s because you don’t like the books picked for you in class or you were never told that reading can be fun so you always think that all books are horrible. I had a very interesting time figuring out the books that were popular and not so popular this year. That list gave me quite a laugh with the ridiculous titles of the least popular books. I was also very interested in the list of most popular books and how many copies that they sold. Some of the books on that list I have never heard of until I looked at that list. I had an issue trying to say why I liked the books I did reviews for because it was pretty obvious why I liked them. Before starting this project I had no idea how much work a blog would be and now that I’ve finished this project I understand exactly how much work and how much effort you have to put into a blog to keep people interested and don’t worry this will not be my last post as I plan on writing more for you. It may not be every day but I will eventually write more for the people who read this and love what I write.
The pictures above are my inspirations for wanting to be an author and loving to write my own material. I hope to get my English Literature degree after high school and become a full-time freelance author and write my own books that kids might read in school or on their free time for fun and enjoyment. I hope that the people who don’t like to read can try to read one of these books and start enjoying the reading experience, but if they don’t at least they tried.
