If You Find Me

By Kristen

Well...Let's just say...I've been lazy and not wanting to go onto my computer and well I'm doing it now so....

If You Find Me

Loved it.  So much.  Even though I think there should be another book, like a sequel, but who knows.  Maybe Emily Murdoch is writing another novel.  I would definitely read it, no questions asked.  Reaction to this: EEPPPP CARRIE AND RYANNNNN.  I wish I could tell how they met and all but then that would freaking spoil it :| cuz he's a big part of the second half of the book.  Delaney is a !#$%& but it all gets better in the end.

I mean they become friends and all...And then Carrie and her sister, Janessa (don't worry this won't give anything away) live in a camper in the middle of the woods, but that changes in the first chapter, lucky, kind of for them.

It's like living out of civilization for years and years ant then moving back to society: high school, people, shopping and other stuff like that.  So Read this Book!!!!!!!!!!

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones comes out in August! So excited! Divergent is being filmed!!! TFiOS Is gonna be a movieeeeeeeeee!

BEA 2013! (With a butt-load of GIFs and Pictures)

By Nora

Honestly, two years ago, I wouldn't have imagined myself going to Book Expo America, let alone wanting to go. I guess that all changed. My mom took me to BEA this year (for my birthday, which was in February, so this was highly anticipated) for Power Reader's Day on June 1st. It was AMAZINGLY FANTABULOUS. This was pretty much me, the whole time:

I won't give you the full play-by-play, but here was the day:

  • Woke up at five to catch the bus to New York City. Surprisingly, I wasn't very affected by that. I just kind of...didn't care. I guess it was just the excitement.
  • Took the taxi to the Javits Center.
  • Ate breakfast, charged phone. Breakfast was meh. Not the best, but whatever. As we were eating, there was a guy a few tables away from us who looked exactly like John Green. From behind. I looked over and had a mini heart attack before he turned around. And he was wearing a suit. John Green would probably have looked like this: (aha just kidding)
  • Noticed blisters from shoes before the floor even opened to the public. That was fun.
  • Checked out the Penguin Book Truck. Seriously, this truck is too cool. I want it.
  • Saw the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Truck. And did I mention that Jeff Kinney is probably opening a bookstore in a town near us? Like, how cool is that? Hey, Jeff Kinney. I know you want to hire me. *nudge nudge*
  • Floor opened.
  • Met Melissa de la Cruz and Michael Johnston. Authors of Frozen.
  • Met Dan Krokos. Author of False Sight.
  • Met Elizabeth Norris. Author of Unraveling.
  • Met Kate Brian. Author of Hereafter.
  • Met my mom's boss. 
  • Met Heather Terrell. Author of Relic.
  • SAW TAHEREH MAFI. I'M NOT KIDDING. She wasn't even signing or anything. Okay, there's actually a funny story behind this. So, a few weeks prior to BEA, I told my mom that Ransom Riggs (author of Miss. Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children) was going to be there, and I told her that I bet Tahereh Mafi would be there with him. She, of course, shot me down. THEN I SAW HER. OH MY GOD. So, while I was freaking out, my mom decides to tell Tahereh Mafi that I was stalking her.

    • Met Sean Williams. Author of Twinmaker.
    • Met the girls from Tea Time, a weekly video show from Epic Reads (Harper Collins). Spun a wheel (woo!) and got a *book shimmy* shirt.
    • Met Laurie Boyle Crompton. Author of Blaze.
    • Watched about five seconds of Star Wars Shakespeare. What?! Yes, Star Wars characters reciting Shakespeare. But we could barely hear them, so we left.
    • Met Jessica Verdi. Author of My Life After Now.
    • Feet killing, tote bags digging into shoulders, we left BEA. Fell asleep on the bus. It was a long day.

    I forgot about yesterday...WHOOPS! But here I am now!


    So first off, my mom said I couldn't read this.  But there was absolutely nothing wrong with it at all!  It was amazingly good and like probably made my top 10.  I started reading it in November I think and I finished it last month!  I think it was just because I thought it was a little boring in the beginning but it got better and better and better.

    Some parts were funny, like the whole Heath situation, and some were cut, like when she first met Erik Night.  It's basically about a girl who's marked by he goddess, Nyx (and trust me when I say that I'm not giving much away) and has reluctant and annoying parents who don't want her to go to the House of Night.  One thing, her mark is different and causes all people to stare.

    She meets a really nice person, Stevie Rae (I think that's how you spell it; I forget) and Damien and the twins, Erin and Shaunee (I cant remember how to spell anything.  Sorry) and gets off on the wrong foot with some other girl.  It's just like high school, but in a school full of vampyres.  Sooooooo I really think you should read this if you haven't already.  Now I just have to somehow get my hands on the second book!

    Look at this thing I found:

    I thought it was pretty funny xP

    Hmmm I Must Think Here

    By Kristen

    I AM RUNNING OUT OF BOOKS TO REVIEW :|  For real, not even lying here.  I finished this book last week and I have been reading like crazy to try to get another one to review for Thursday.  Luckily, I finished a book on Sunday PHEW!  I want to talk about a few things...Just to talk.

    I really want to save that other book for Thursday...So I'm just babbling on here.  I really should review that other book.  OMG I am so mad at Nora.  She got to go to BEA (Book Expo America) where they have a TON of freaking free books that you can get signed and I wanted to go but I had something else that day and like you have to pay to go :|

    Is that the right logo?

    Oh well, if it's not, whatever.

    OMG do you cry over fictional characters? I do and Nora does, too. My sister calls us book geeks, which is just really annoying.
    Here is a short list of fictional (NOT TO US) characters to cry over.

    Augustus Waters
    Noah Shaw

    I cannot think of more at the moment.  But those are the like top 3.


    Well.....This wasn't really...anything.... So I'm just going to stop here because if I keep going, well, I'll just wind up talking about things that have nothing to do with anything.  If that makes any sense.
