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!

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.

Women blink nearly twice as much as men.

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.

Hello. 22 books down wtih 324 days to go.

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! :)

Turtles can breathe through their butts.

Hey All! It's Elizabeth!
I finished a book called Sucks to be Me. An awesome book about a girl named Mina who has vampires for parents and who has to decide whether or not she wants to become one. A great read. Now I am on to a book called A Kiss In Time. I don't want to tell you what it is about (I'm saving that for when I'm done with the book) but I will say that it is hilarious!
I'm sorry I haven't blogged for a while! But I'm back on track now!!! Thanks for reading,
Love Lizzy S.

Still Going!

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....)
That's all for now!

17 books now, 334 days to go!

Fun Fact of the day! Finger nails grown four ties faster than toe nails! (weird, huh?)
