17 books down, 339 days to go!

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!!!

If all the Coca-Cola vending machines in the U.S. were stacked one on top of each other, the pile would be over 450 miles high.

Also, did you know that TYPEWRITER is the longest word that can be writeen with only one row on the keyboard??? Cool, huh? Read Avalon High by Meg Cabot (best book the isn't in a series- such an interesting topic... read blog number 5) and the Mediator Series by Meg Cabot and the Gallagher Series by Ally Carter because they are the best series' ever! Even better than the 1-800-Where-R-U Series!!!! READ! Love Lizzy S (my new blogging nickname :D)


Hey Guys! NEWS:
Umm, first off Zoe finfished 4,5, and 6 in the Mediator Series and LOVED them! LOVED them so much. So did I.
I finished Don't Judge a Girl by her Cover... very good book. The second in the Gallagher Girl series is the second, though. Cammie (the main character going to a spy school is AWESOME.) Please read these books in order, and please read them. :)
Love Lizzy S!!!

Studies show that if a cat falls off the seventh floor of a building it has about thirty percent less chance of surviving than a cat that falls off the twentieth floor. It supposedly takes about eight floors for the cat to realize what is occurring, relax and correct itself.

Wow! Plenty finished!!!

Hey guys!
While I (liz) was at sleep away camp for the sixith graders (three- or two and a half wimpy days) I finished the book Beastly. Very good book! Kyle Kingsbury is the usual popular gorgeous jock who happened to be a jerk. But this didn't last forever. When a witch comes along and turns him into a beast, he has to years to make someone truely fall in love with him. Only then can he be human again. Very good book.
Zoe also finished books (TWO!). The Mediator's 3 and 4. I'll have Zoe blog about that tomorrow.

anyone there?

Hey whoever!
I just finished The Awakening by i forget who, but I loved the book and now i want to read the first, The Summoning. READ THESE BOOKS. I loved them but you really want to read the first book first. Zoe had to explain when i got confused.
10/10 very good! My favorite character is Derek, the mysteriously grumpy werewolf. haha! Chloe (the main character) was cool though. The book is written in her point of view. Great read
Love liz

Nope! Not gonna go there! We can do it! We can do it! YAY!
Okay, so I began The Mediator 3: Reunion and I ADORE IT! To be honest i never thought of Meg Cabot as anything special. In fact, I never even liked her books, but The Mediator is incredible!!!!!! You should really check it out! I know you'll love it!
So we have read 8 books and are perfectly on schedule! (We're trying to read 2 books each per week. Piece of cake!)
Please check out first book!
Interesting fact of the day: Most lipstick is partailly made of fish scales. Ew!

Hey yall! I'm here to post!

I am on page 305 of pags 380 in the book Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood. The book is really good. I like the second better, but oh well. Sorry for such a small update.
Love Liz

Another Book Done!

Haha! I finally have read more than half the amount of books as my little sister! yep! I just finished The Mediator 2 by Meg Cabot. Okay, turns out the guy just thought he was a vampire (he was insane). Sorry about the complaints yesterday. Oopsy! Well that's about it (don't worry Liz's blog will be longer!)

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....
6 books down, 365 days to go!


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.)
