Hi everyone! I am an aspiring author slash college student who loves to read which is probably obvious, and I love to share what I read with people, again, obvious. I think everyone has a book out there for them, its a matter of looking hard enough to find it and having a positive attitude about reading it. Anyways I hope you all find this blog helpful. Please feel free to comment and ask questions, that's why I do this! -Bookworm95

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

This is the latest book I have read. It was ok. I really liked the idea behind the book, but I felt it was slow in some departments. It was good enough that I will read the rest of the books though. So look into it if this interests you!

"Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.
In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything."

The movie for this book is released in the US on Feb. 13. My book group and I will be going to see it so expect a review!


It's Been A While

Hey everyone! I hope your Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's were amazing. Mine were all pretty bittersweet. I haven't had anytime to update this site in a long time. Senior year has been pretty crazy for me and a lot has happened. It is now February and I have some new things to tell you all so here it goes:

1) I started the new year's reading list on January 7, 2013 and I plan to read until that day in 2014. I will hopefully be finding some time to update the current reading page for last year and put up the new one for this year. I didn't get as many read as I had originally hoped. Like I said, my classes, school activities, family stuff, and church have kept just about all of my time these last few months.

2) I have not written anything new on the High School Romance page. I still have a writer's block. Some authors don't even believe that exists. They think you just haven't been inspired. Maybe that's true. Either way, Sam and Grace's story has not progressed. I think I am going to put it away for now. Let it rest and then come back to it. However, I have been working on some new stuff in my Creative Writing Class. I have started playing around with a cop drama that I am pretty excited about.

3) I am still going to continue the Nicholas Sparks challenge. That like everything else has taken a back seat to me hectic life. I have however started reading the Notebook and I have to say, its good, but the movie version may be better. . .I am so excited about Safe Haven coming out. For those who don't know, it comes out in the US on Feb. 14 and it looks amazing. 

I think that is all I had to tell you guys. I really am sorry about not posting anything sooner. Until I write again, have a great week, or weeks!
