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!

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.

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.

Love, Lizzy S.

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.

The Atlantic Giant Squid's eye can be as large as 15.75 inches (40 centimeters) wide.
The Bible, the world's best-selling book, is also the world's most shoplifted book.

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.
