I'm not going to have access to internet due to a Yearbook Convention I'll be attending this thursday till sunday.

Also, My friend got in a car accident and is in critical condition. I have so much going on right now, so I won't be able to update this for at least a week. I'm feeling really overwhelmed right now-- AH.

So please, bear with me- and don't forget this blog. I will update the next possible moment I get!

I promise.


p.s. Keep my friend, K, in your prayers.

Review: Fame, Glory & Other Thing on my To Do List

Jessica is your average teenager. She goes to school, drives, and keeps a job. One day Jessica is leaving Walmart and gets into her car. Well actually, not exactly.Turns out to be Jordan Hunter's car. Son of the famous actor Christopher Hunter. This turns out to be a big deal to her since she wants to be an actress.Later, Jessica and Hunter make a deal which will later lead to him borrowing her car. She doesn't exactly know why either.
In hopes of getting discovered, Jessica tries to get Jordan to sign up for their school production of West side story. She hopes that by getting Jordan to sign up, his dad will show up. Jordan isn't exactly the drama type though.

I thought Fame, Glory, and other things on my list was okay. It's definitely not the first time I've read something like this.It was really hard for me to get into it but after reading a few pages I didn't have any trouble finishing it. It was a light read and it definitely had its funny moments. I think those in middle school and up would take interest in this book. I think that most people will enjoy it. I was only thrown off by its tween cover.

The Cullens Casted!

We have our Cullens!

Well, I've known for a while, but its been "officially" posted today.

The following is from Stephenie's site:

Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Jackson Rathbone, Nikki Reed, Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz Join Cast of the Thriller Romance

Los Angeles, CA February 19, 2007 — Summit Entertainment announced today that it has rounded out the cast of the Cullen family in the first installment of its filmed franchise, TWILIGHT. The family of vampires, to which the leading male character Edward Cullen belongs, will be comprised of actors Peter Facinelli as Carlisle, Elizabeth Reaser as Esme, Jackson Rathbone as Jasper, Nikki Reed as Rosalie, Ashley Greene as Alice and Kellan Lutz as Emmett.

"Finding six talented actors who can portray supernaturally beautiful, talented vampires of the sort Stephenie Meyer has created and her fans have come to know and love was not an easy task but we are happy to say we have found our perfect Cullen family," said Erik Feig, Summit's President of Production.

The credits for the actors comprising the Cullen family include popular film and television titles. Peter Facinelli (THE SCORPION KING, RIDING IN CARS WITH BOYS) just completed work on the critically acclaimed first season of Damages. Reaser had roles in the comedy THE FAMILY STONE and has been seen on the hit TV series Grey's Anatomy. Rathbone was seen in PRAY FOR MORNING and also appeared in the TV series The O.C. Reed also played a role on The O.C. and also has been seen in LORDS OF DOGTOWN. Greene has been seen in both Shark and Crossing Jordan. Lutz appeared in ACCEPTED and the HBO series The Comeback.
Facinelli is represented by Paradigm and James/Levy Management. Rathbone and Reed are also represented by Paradigm. Reaser is represented by UTA. Greene and Lutz are represented by Innovative Artists.

I have to say, They look great. Except for Jackson Rathbone. I'm not so sure about his acting abilities. All I have to say is You Better Wow Me Rathbone!

Oh and doesn't Robert Pattinson look a lot better in this photo? He "cleans up" pretty good!

Review: Cathy's Book

Cathy's Book is an imaginitive story about a girl named Cathy who leds a normal life until she meets a guy named Victor. Right when she begins to fall for him, Victor breaks things off suddenly. Confused, Cathy gets a little suspicious of it all and decides to look into Victor and his past. She finds herself in over her head when she discovers secrets that can change everything she's ever known.
This was probably one of the best books I've read in a while. I did not put this down until I got to the end. It was so cool having a packet of evidence and being able to interact with the story. I'm looking foward to the sequel, Cathy's Key, when it comes out May 5th! I even saw an ARC copy on ebay for like $10. I wish I had $10. . Anyways, I recommend this for someone who like a quick read and a good mystery. The only thing is that I was sort of my intrigued by the drawings and evidence than the story at times. Yes, I admit it! It got boring at some parts, but overall it was worth reading and getting.
So pick up your copy next time you visit the bookstore! Not the library though. I've heard stories of people checking it out and the evidence was stolen from it.
Did I mention you can call the phone numbers listed throughout the book? Well, you can and if your super smart like mee, you can get the acess codes to listen to the messages. ;]

Review: Magic in the Mirrorstone edited by Steve Berman

Coming Febuary 12th, 2008

Magic In the Mirrorstone is collection of short stories. This collection of fantasy features many crictically acclaimed and best selling authors. Some of the authors who contribuited are Holly Black, Cecil Castellucci, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Eugie Foster, and Gregory Frost. The collection includes enchanted jewelry, magic instruments, talking amphibians and much more!

If your fan of fantasy novels, you definitely need to pick this up. This anathology has fantastic writers and each writer brought an amazing story, and even though magic is an element in this collection, it is easy to identify with the characters. I recommend this to teens who have not had an interest in fantasy. I personally wasn't a huge fan, but reading this has given me more of an interest. Beware! It will keep you up all night! ;]
