Happy Holidays!

Before I get back to reading Jane Eyre for school, I thought I'd write a quick entry. Basically, I want to say Happy Holidays and have a terrific New Year!

Right now I'm finishing The Possibilites of Fireflies by Dominique Paul and I have to say its phenominal. The book is so realistic and moving. I've gotten teary quite a few times.

More on the book later.

I don't know about you but there is a lot of books coming out like the day after christmas. Or at least, around then.

For example The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray, Princess Mia by Meg Cabot, & Fake Boyfriend by Kate Brian. Do they think I'll have money after christmas? I spend most of it before hand buying gifts.

Anyways, the first book I want to purchase in '08 is Leftovers by Laura Wiess.

A devastating novel of desperation and revenge from one of today's most compelling new voices in fiction. In this follow-up to her heartbreaking debut, Such a Pretty Girl, Laura Wiess once again spins a shattering tale of the tragedies that befall young women who are considered society's Leftovers.
Blair and Ardith are best friends who have committed an unforgivable act in the name of love and justice. But in order to understand what could drive two young women to such extreme measures, first you'll have to understand why. You'll have to listen as they describe parents who are alternately absent and smothering, classmates who mock and shun anyone different, and young men who are allowed to hurt and dominate without consequence. You will have to learn what it's like to be a teenage girl who locks her bedroom door at night, who has been written off by the adults around her as damaged goods. A girl who has no one to trust except the one person she's forbidden to see. You'll have to understand what it's really like to be forgotten and abandoned in America today.
Are you ready?

&& doesn't sound great? Well, I think it does!
Well, my conscience is telling me to get back to Jane Eyre. After Jane I have to read 1984. =[
That's what I get I guess. Did I mention I've read them before like 100 years ago? && Consequently, I don't remember details in the book which I need to write some critical analysises..
HAHA. Ain't life grand?
Happy Holidays!
p.s Watch this video! It'll make you laugh. Alot. Well, maybe a few times.
