Happy Winter!
It's Elizabeth. I finished a book, Hush, Hush in my NOOK. It was a great book! The perfect amount of realistic fiction and fantasy!

Hush, Hush is about a girl, Nora, who one day is assigned a mysterious Biology Partner for the rest of the year. Patch. She hates his witty ways and snotty smirk but at the same time she is extremely allured by him.
Nora must find out more about him but even when she breaks into the school's folder's Patch's folder is empty.
Eventually, Nora gets very close to finding out the truth, too close.
What she finds disturbes her... his mysterious past. He's...
I'm not gonna give away TOO much so I'll just stick with "Immortal."
:) Happy Happy Happy!

I finished Would You and I got a Nook for Christmas!!!
I love the NOOK! I already have 3 books bought on it and ready to read. Right now I am actually at the airport, on my way to Chicago for winter break. Here that? Vacation! If I'm not wrapped up in the cousins I can READ! Yesss! On my new NOOK! Zoe also got a nook so I am expecting her to be reading more.

Happy Christmas!
Happy Winter!
Happy Happy Happy!

So, I hope you guys are suuupppeerr happy! Because I am. It's Xmas Eve, I just finished making Xmas cookies and I can't wait to see if my family like's what I got them for the Holidays!

So, I have finished 3 books, but I might blog later tonight or at least tomorrow, because I only have, like, thirty pages of my book left! I finished, Waiting for Normal and Confetti Girl and Tales of Reluctant Psychic.
Waiting for normal was really sad. This book is about a young girl living in a trailer with her Mom. She goes through many things including having her mom leave her for nights at a time, her first period, her mom getting pregnant, seeing her half sisters, having a friend die, and much more. SO SAD!
Confetti Girl didn't have much of a plot. A nice young girl with a crush on a boy with a bad lisp whose best friends mom just might hook up with her single father.
Tales of a Reluctant Psychic. Great book. The main character and narrator Jade has a near death experience and she now can read peoples thoughts, aura's, and futures without any control. Jade goes through everything possible to make a sixteen/fifteen year old girl freak. She gets a god like Indian Boyfriend (two years older), very dangerous threats, psychic powers, a crush on an evil college student, an unconvinced best friend that she just MIGHT be losing towards the begging of the book, a talkative brother, a insane college student who makes an idiot move and she almost dies, a synagogue blower-upper out to blow up her synagogue, and much more. Poor Jade.

43 books down, 249 days to go.

Hey all. It's Lizzy (DUUUHH) and I finished Chicken Soup for the Dog lovers Soul, so I am going to have a short blog today. Basically it's the same as C. S. F. T. Cat L. S. but instead of having stories about cats having kittens, cats getting lost, Cats received as a gift, blah blah blah.... it's dogs! Good book! Now I'm working on "Tales of a Reluctant Psychic."

It was discovered on a space mission that a frog can throw up. The frog throws up it's stomach first, so the stomach is dangling out of it's mouth. Then the frog uses it's forearms to dig out all of the stomach's contents and then swallows the stomach back down again.

Happy Holidays To You!!
Hey there!
It's Lizzy (duh) and I finished 2 books, Audrey, Wait! and Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul. I'll start with Audrey. It was an okay book but kind of inappropriate. There is a refrence to sex, which is one reason why (I skipped over that), but I'm guessing you want to know what this book is about. Basically, it's about a girl who's boyfriend is in a band, and when they agree to break up, he writes a song about how SHE dumped HIM and the song 'Audrey, Wait!' becomes a hit single! Now everyone is talking about her filthily as her ex becomes famous.
Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul is a book with dozens and dozens of story about people and their cats. These stories are true and some of them are about getting cats as gifts, finding cats, putting cats to sleep, cats having kittens, etc. Great stories for cat lovers like me.

40 books down, 262 days to go!

Hello there!
It's Elizabeth. I finished City of Ashes and City of Glass. They were each, like, five hundred pagesso give me a break! Anyway, amazing books. Fantastic Books. Superb books! These books were the second and third of the Mortal Instruments series. (Remember City of Bones? The one I read on my Mom and my Aunt's kindles? That was the first one). I got the next two on Sunday and dove right into them.
These books have a lot of "love" in them. Mostly brotherly/ sisterly love which turns into REAL love when Clary finds out that she is not, indeed, the sister of her one true love Jace.
In the last book, City of Glass, Cassandra Clare does an amazing job at creating the real Johnathan, Valentine (the evil guy)'s son. She also does a fantastic job at describing Idris, the homeland for all things mythical. Towards the end of the book, things get very shocking and all that is going on in your mind as you read is "No! No! NO! That can't happen! Yes! Yes! Yes! They're not really related! Go Clary! Go Jace! GO SIMON!"
Fantastic book. If your a little confused, please read my review of the first book in the series.

Great books. Lots of action. No, TONS of action. Amazing books.

Happy Late Thanksgiving!

Sooo behind. Today's excuse: the Holiday Season :) .

I have read two books since lat time I blogged, Zoe has read zero, and I am kind of in a thoughtful mood. I have been thinking really hard about ow guilty I would feel if I let you guys down and didn't finish this in the 267 days left. :(
Well, I read Deadline by Chris Crutcher and The Missing Girl by Norma Fox Mazer. The Missing Girl is hard to talk about and write a description about. This book was brutally creepy, disturbing, and just weird. Basically it's about a group of sister who are basically being stalked. Totally icky.
Just check out this link and click the Inside Cover link and click the front flap if you want to know more:

Deadline was a really great book, written in 1st person. The narrator, Ben, is a Smart-Ass, but I kind of admired him for that, him dying and all. Puzzled? Hope so. Ben Wolf has about a year to live, he gets very sick, and he chooses not to tell ANYONE, not even his family, unless you count his social worker, until towards the ending of this book, the end of his life. This book was filled with swearing and there is a mild sex scene that I skipped over. Normally a book that has such content I would put down, but I didn't. I couldn't. I was routing for Ben till the end, praying there would be a miracle.
Ben was a witty eightteen year old, with a life that gets more messed up then he ever would have dreamed in the ten months he has to live. Ben was someone I had to admire while I was reading. I just had to. He handled death so well, he was so content and headstrong and... just a captivating character. Honestly, I mean... he helped out the town drunk, Rudy (not the smartest thing to do considering Rudy's awful secret), he tried out for the football team even though he so tiny, he coped with his insane mother, he handled his mysterious girlfriend, Dallas's, disturbing tragedies, and much more. Though the swearing did bother me, I liked his book. For an eleven year old (who is very mature!)? Maybe a 3/5. But for an older reader, who doesn't get her books approved by her mom first ;) ? Yeah, sure, 5/5. Though it was one of the SADDEST books.

Hi there!
I just finished City of Bones on my mother's kindle by Cassandra Clare. It was an AMAZING book and I can't even begin to describe what it's about except for the fact that there is a girl named Clary who finds out that she has many links to another world she didn't even know about.
This book was a fantastic book with the perfect witty main character, and an awesome description of Downworlders, Shadowhunters, Demons, and other things you wouldn't know about. It was a book that I definitely recommend this book! My mom said that once she returns today, I can buy the next in the series on her Kindle.
Zoe finished some books but I'm not sure what. She said she'd blog about it later.

Sorry I haven't blogged in forever! We are really falling behind but I promise to push myself to keep reading. I'm really not sure what I am going to do about Zoe though. I don't want to quit but I honestly can't take this anymore!
Anyway, I finished The Wright Three (worst book I have EVER read) and Once a Witch.
Once a Wish is about a girl who was born into a family with magical powers who never ended up developing any. When she finds out this might not be true, she might have a Talent, she has to go on a journey to save her gigantic, loving family from losing a fight against another family who once had Talents in their blood.
An Amazing Book! I really recommend it!! Now I am reading a book called The City of Bones (awesome so far) on my mom's Kindle. Using a Kindle isn't cheating, right? Good! :)

Today is Zoe's birthday. Happy 14th, Zoe! Anyway, she has read zero books this month :) and I have read one in five days. Pretty lame right? Yeah. Pretty lame. Well, 3 out of those five days I was trying to find a book, and I did at my school's book fair. Death by Denim (the book after Death by Latte- remember that one?) by Linda Gerber.
The main character, Aphra almost dies in this book, and by the end she is a a royal reck. But at least she has Seth, her boyfriend who she hasn't seen since she got a new identity and moved to France.
Do you remember Death by Latte? Well if you do, this one was eve better. A really intense, good book.
4.9/5 stars- recently added to my favorite's list along with The Christopher Killer.

Hey all!
I finished The Christopher Killer by Alane Ferguson on Monday but I forgot to blog. This book is AWESOME!
It's about a 17 year old girl named Cameryn whose dad is a Forensic Doctor who has to pick up dead bodies, take them to get autopsies, find clues on how they died by looking at the dead persons surroundings, and then watching the autopsies. Cammie is very interested in this so she asks her dad if she can be his assistant. He says yes. But when a certain person in her small town shows up dead, Cameryn doesn't know how much she can handle. She even has a close encounter with the murderer, the Christopher Killer. A really intense awesome book! A must read. five/five stars.

More people are killed annually by donkeys than die in air crashes.

Well I forgot to blog about this but a few days ago, I finished Gathering Blue by Lowis Lowry. It is the "sequel" to The Giver. I put that in quotes because it does continue the plot of The Giver. It's more of a book that continues in theme and is paired with it. I am currently beginning the other book that goes with those two: Messsenger. Though this book is a contiuation of Gathering Blue (I think). I LOVE LOWIS LOWRY'S WRITING! I have also ventured into the world of The Classics also. Farenheit 451, here I come! I have began this book and let me say it is very confusing at first. But I am determined! HELP ME!

31 books down, 305 books to go.

Well. It's me Lizzy, pooped from last night (Happy Halloween!) =) I'm really sorry I haven't blogged in so long! I've just been so busy. Do you mind if I tell you about my week? Well, I'm going to anyway. Last week was my friends birthday party, then we went to a place called Witches Woods which is basically a place with haunted hay rides, haunted houses, carnival games, and scary people walking around. =) Then on Thursday I went to a Demi Lovato Concert! On Friday was the Halloween Dance and then yesterday was of course Halloween.

Anyway I read two books and I am onto two more (one for school). The books I read are called Eleven by Lauren Myracle and Four Truths and a Lie by Lauren Barnholdt.
I'll start with Eleven. Eleven was not a good book. It was stupid, boring, and written by the same writer who writes a really inappropriate, crappy (excuse my language!!!) series including the books, ttyl, ttfn, and l8r, g8r. This book was so pointless and plot-less. No one wants to read about an eleven year old girl who has a moody older sister and a crush who has pink eye and a best friend who has a new friend. I mean, really. That's basically the whole plot. Ack. I want to read about more dramatic, interesting, and mature topics, and lets face it. Those kind of books have teenagers as the main characters (Young Adult books). Not Myracle's style. She has no class!

Whoa. Sorry about that. Just felt like going on a rampage about something I believe in.
=) The other book I read is called Four Truths and a Lie and even though this book isn't sophisticated and about a seventeen year old (ha ha) it was still OK.
This book is about a girl named Scarlett whose mom sends her to an all girls private boarding school where no one knows her secret. Her big.. no huge.. secret involving her 'criminal' dad. At he school she gets assigned a pen pal from a brothering private school for boys. Scarlett's pen pal sends her one statement for every letter that she get from him and she must get her self into trouble to find out whether it is true or not.
Things get really dicey when she gets caught, and everything goes down hill when Amber, her best friend, get fed u with her. This book wasn't excellent but it was a good book and I guess I do recommend it.
I just reread the last forty pages of the book and I realized that I actually do like this book.

Well thanks for reading, In 1976, the 10 billionth gallon of "Coca-Cola" syrup was produced.
Lots of Love, Lizzy S.

Slipped My Mind!

Well, that's one more book down!
Here's what I thought about the book:
The Giver was an incredible feat that makes you question life and realize how precious our differences and our memories truly are to us. I've never had a book that filled me such a sense of wonder before. I COMPLETELY RECOMMEND IT FOR ALL AGES!

Saturday, October 24, 2009

Yep! I read it!

Yesterday, I finished I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have To Kill You by Ally Carter.
I suggest it to all who love a good creative read. Ally Carter really knows her spy stuff, so come on and take a tour of the Gallagher Academy For Exceptional Young Women! Classes include COW (countries of the world), CoveOps, PE (where you learn extreme martial arts) and Language (all girls must know 14 languages). These genius girls learn everything there is to learn about becoming a spy. But in exchange for extreme knowledge and spy training, girls give up having an everyday life. That's where the protagonist Cammie comes in. But I don't want to give away too much!
Loved it!

I finished Death by Latte and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 3. I was not a fan of The Sisterhood but Death by Latte was awesome!

Now. if you are going to read this you should probably read Death by Bikini first. The Death series is an awesome series about a girl named Aphra who's mom is a CIA agent. In this book, Aphra goes to visit her mom for the first time in four years, and gets pulled into am big predicament. She is now responsible for helping her Mom and stopping the murderers who are out out get her and her Mom.
An awesome read.

Zoe read I'd Tell You I Love You, but Then I'd Have to Kill You. I will have her blog about that one, one of my favorites. She can read the second one also, but not the third, because I already read it and counted it for the blog. I'm pretty mad and disappointed in her. She has finished one full book this month. I really feel like this is my blog now, and she is not even contributing.

I am so sorry it has been so long since I posted! Busy, busy busy!
Well I read two books, The Mother-Daughter Book Club 3- Dear Pen Pal, and The Everafter. Two amazing books. Well, I'll start with Heather Vogel Fredrick's, Dear Pen Pal.

This book is amazing. The whole series is. So, let me give you some background. This series takes place in Concord, MA, a place dear to our hearts. Now, I met her at a book signing and we became friends. We emailed each other for a while and now we are back on track. By the way, she mentioned my street! How cool is that? I told what street i lived on in Concord and she put it in the book!!!!
Well anyway, this year The Mother-Daughter book club is full of eighth graders! Meghan, Jess, Emma, Cassidy, and Becca have all grown up! In this story the girls get pen pals! Throughout the year the year the girls must right to there pen pals. In the meantime, Jess decided to take her scholarship and go to a snotty Boarding School in Concord and is stuck with Godzilla Girl as her roommate, Cassidy get a big surprise, Emma participates in the school news paper, Meghan works hard on her designs with her Grandma who cam to visit her from China for the first time in many, many years, and Becca... well. Becca's just kind of there. I have to say: she is not my favorite character :)
I am kind of afraid, though, that Godzilla will join the book club. Too many members! In the first book it was just Meghan, Cassidy, Jess, and Emma. In the second book Becca joined, and in the third Godzilla was introduced. I wonder...
Anyway, Jess is definetly my favorite character in the story. She is brilliant, sweet, caring and loyal. GO JESS! Go Mother-Daughter Book Club! Go Heather Vogel Fredrick! Awesome book. A must read :)

Now on to the Everafter. Very interesting concept. The main character Maddy is dead, at the age of 17 and in the little space her spirit moved on to, missing things from her life appeared and then she would relive the moment that happened, and she become skilled enough to change some of the things that happened. She meets other ghosts, but she must find a way to move on with her boyfriend, Gabe's, spirit to better place than Is, the creepy area she was trapped in when she wasn't reliving some of her life's episodes. But to do this she must find out how she died.
Also an awesome (yet a little bit strange) read. I highly recommend it.

By the way, Zoe said she tried to read Whip It and teh Anadomy of wings, but she said they were so awful that she couldn't get passed page 30 on either of them.

Ok, well that's all for now.

Hey all! I finished two books this weekend. The Wedding Planner's Daughter and The Cupid Chronicles. These are the first two books in the Wedding Planner's Daughter Series. The first on was okay but I loved the second one. She experiences "love", death, happiness, and family for the first time. Willa, the main character, was a funny, witty character with the perfect amount of spunk and laughs, and I love how much she adores books! :)

Hi everyone! We are still working towards our 200 book goal, though the busy life has really caught up with us. We haven't read any more books since we last said we did. Sorry! AHHH we're so behind, but we're not stopping!
We've had made an important decision. As you may or may not know, all of our books MUST be at least 199 pages. But Tales Of Beedle The Bard by J.K. Rowling is our exception to the rule because I, Zoe, am a HUGE HARRY POTTER FAN!!!! (I'm such a fan, I was playing hangman the other day and my word was Voldermort. I cast spells at the first showing of HP6....)

Hey all!
I just finished TH1RTEEN R3ASONS Why by Jay Asher. One of the most disturbingly amazing books I have ever read. Honestly. This book is about a boy named Clay Jenson who's secret "crush" (more like love) kills her self and creates a list of reasons why she killed herself. The list is recorded on cassette tapes and Hannah guides Clay through her town with the tapes. So heartbreaking and sad but very much recommended!
This book totally made me want to cry, stop being so puzzled, almost smile, and think. Such an interesting book with a great plot! A must read!!!

I'm Not Dead!

Hey readers! Like I said, I'm NOT DEAD! Sorry about not coming on lately. I've been jam packed with the 8th grade! haha
Well I have finished a grand total of 2 books! Yay? Well 2 nights ago I finished The Mediator by Meg Cabot and may I say it was AMAZING! Written in the comical voice of mediator Suze Simon, it is the story of moving to a new state and dealing with the ghosts that come along with it! It truly is total book junk food-- addicting and VERY satisfying! I adored it!
So that leads me to my next point-- The Mediator 2! Ha! The laughs and addiction continues as I work my way through this one. But (sorry for the spoiler) vampires??? WHAT!!! That was something that I did NOT see coming! Let's just hope their never seen again in the series or it's bye bye mediator....

Hey all!
I just finished the Traveling Pants 2 by Ann Brashares and Zoe finished the Mediator: 1 by Meg Cabot (my FAVORITE series ever). The Traveling Pants was an awesome book but kind of (really) depressing. Lena's boyfriend (living in Greece) was forced to get married to another woman. Carmen broke her mother's heart. Bridget meets her Grandmother for the first time in around ten years. Tibby get's into a heated relationship with her mother. Stressful. :)
But overall this book was pretty awesome.
I'll get Zoe to post later tonight about the 1st mediator book (I highly recommend the series).
Thanks for reading. Sorry we haven't had a chance to be writing as much these past few stressful days of middle school.
By the way, I was wondering who I just apologized to. Is there anyone out there? Anyone? Please comment!!!
Love LIZ

Hey all!
Guess what???? 195 books to go! Yay! I tend to read on the weekends in the morning and since have done that for the past two days, I have finished two books! The first one is called It's a Mall World After All by Janette Rallison. It was a good book but most of it had to do with romance (though not the main character's, her best friend's). It was a really good book though and the ending was fun.
The other book I read, Avalon High by Meg Cabot, deserves 5/5 stars! A very neat book. The concept was great. At first it was about a basic girl in high school (a little boring yet still readable) but towards the middle to the end, Meg Cabot brings in the medieval tale of King Arthur. It was very interesting to see how the tale intertwined with Ellie's life. Very good read. (Highly Recommended)
Well, thanks for reading today's update. Lots of Love, Liz

Great Start!

Hello all!
Yes! What an accomplishment! Both Liz and I each finished a book! That's 3 down, 197 to go! (At this point we're not sure if that exclamation point is in excitement or dread at this point....)
I finished Ruined by Paula Morris. It was a great read and I just couldn't put it down once I hit the last action-packed chapters. There's a new twist at every corner!
Let me just say, if you read this book (which I highly encourage!) and get bored at some point, READ ON! DON'T GIVE UP! YOU WILL GREATLY REGRET IT! What a book!
Also, Liz finished the book The Ghost Huntress the guidance by Marley Gibson. It was a very interesting concept but there was some language in the book. And romance, but nothing to bad. I wouldn't recommend this book if you haven't read the first, The Awakening, and even then, I like the first one better. The style of writing in The Guidance was okay but some of the vocabulary wasn't very classy. Well, that's okay. I mean, It wasn't a blow. Just not the best book (though i highly recommend the first). Next up? Avalon High by Meg Cabot for me and Also known as Harper by Ann Hay Wood Leal for Zoe.

Well, that's it for now guys! We'll be back soon! Love, Liz and Zoe

Here comes the pressure

Well school started today and on top of getting homework done, I'm reading right now. Liz and I are really starting to see what we got ourselves into with the marathon. But have 1 book down and 364 days to go!
Here's what I think so far of Ruined by Paula Morris. So far it is pretty good. I like the main character, Rebecca. She's a very realistic character and easy to understand.
But Rebecca is put into a very cliched situation. Of course she is the "poor girl sent away form her family to a new and 'creepy' town filled with excepting snobby girls and must live with an odd stranger." It's nothing I've never heard before. BORING!
But wait! There's more! The book is improving! Poor Rebecca has met a new friend. Too bad she's a ghost!
I think the concept of her meeting a ghost is very interesting and I give the author a thumbs up! But there is always room for revisions! MY complaints start when Poor Rebecca is meeting with her friend and Lisette (the ghoulish one) tells her that she is in fact a ghost. I was looking forward to this part of the book because I thought it would be really interesting.
Guess what? It wasn't.
Lisette says she's a ghost. And Poor Rebecca goes with it.
No awkwardness.
No serious doubt.
No fear or anything!
AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! This book is driving me crazy!!!! But I shall read on! Because I will continue with this challenge. I will finish the 200 book marathon with pride!

199 Books to go

Hey everyone! It's Liz. Since I have a day off from school today I thought I'd log on and let you know that there are only 199 books to go! I started Missing you by Meg Cabot last night and finished it this morning. So now I have a feeling Zoe wanted me to do something... write a review? Oh, yes! That's it!
Well, here it is then:
For the past in the past 13 hours I have been reading when I could (no, I didn't read during my nine hours of sleep) and I ended up starting and finishing my book!
Missing You (Meg Cabot) was the last book in the five-part hilarious 1-800-Where-R-U series. The main character, Jess, had a spunky vibe and her sense of humor was fantastic. But she wasn't just your average tough and practically friendless high school girl. She had a special 'power.'
In the first book of the series When Lightning Strikes, Jess was stuck out in a lightning storm at the beginning of the book and she got struck by lightning! And that is how she got the power to find missing people if she has an item of theirs or a picture of them. Once she has an item of theirs or a picture she has to go to sleep (I know, stressful, right?) and in the morning she knows the address of where they are. Just like that.
Anyway, in this book, which was only written after the fourth (the fourth was meant to be Cabot's final book in the series) because the fans asked, some time has gone by since the fourth. In the fourth, Sanctuary, (my favorite book in the series) Jess is sixteen and in Missing you she is 19. She had lost her powers after going to war to help find missing people in between the time that she was 16 and 19 but when a long lost "friend" of hers, Rob, shows up at her apartment door one day, asking her to find his missing sister (that she didn't know about, and apparently neither did Rob until a few months ago) she puts her powers to the test.
Jess gets herself into a rather sticky situation that Rob helps get her out of, and she brings justice to Rob's sister, Hannah's, 27 year old boyfriend (Hannah's 15) who was a rather "icky" guy.
But don't come to the conclusion that this is strictly an action book. Yes, there is romance. In the end of the book there is some content that was a little "adult" but it was nothing too bad that you couldn't skip over.
Over all this was a great book! Throughout the whole book you will find yourself cheering in your head, 'Go Jess!'
5/5 stars! But if you are going to read this book, please read the whole series first (in order). It will make more since that way. :) (WARNING: Young adult book. Might not appeal to some readers. Pretty mild romance will show up in every book. Unless you don't have good humor, be ready for laughs.)
