I am so glad to be hosting this contest for my blogoversary!

1- Year-Blogoversary!!! Thank you to All my supporters!!!

Today September 19, 2010 marks the 365th day I have been blogging. Which makes it my 1 year blogoversay!!!! I am so glad I have made it this far. My blog really means a lot to me, and though some can't tell it because of my lack posts the last weeks (blame high school-junior year I tell you)(oh and AP classes)(and volleyball games that end at 10 o'clock, but you know...life)! I am trying really really hard to get back into it and no better way than to kick it off with my blogoversary.

I think as a book blogger I have grown a lot more throughout this year. If you have read my first review (which I don't really recommend) you could see that it was pretty much a bad persuasive essay. Which is okay if I want to pass an English class, but I am glad that my reviews have at least grown and I have found my own style as a book blogger.

Most importantly I would really really really 1000x really want to thank, honor, and commend all of you who read my blog, especially those of you who have been here from the beginning. It is really great motivation knowing that people actually read what I have to say. So a huge thank you to those who read my blog on a regular basis, rarely, or even if this is the first post of mine you have ever read, Thank you. I appreciate it, and hope you come back later!

Expect a contest as my next post btw...

Monday’s Question of the Day

This meme was started by Eleni over at /- LA FEMME READERS -/. I always enjoyed answering and reading the responses to the questions she comes up with, so I decided to start some of my own!

Monday's Question of The DayHow do you feel about books turning into movies?

To be completely 100% honest…I don’t like it. It really kind of bugs me whenever I see another YA book, especially one of my favorites, being made into a movie. This used to make me really ecstatic to see a book I liked made into a movie. but lately it has just become too much for my taste. It would be okay if they were making them into as close as possibly remake’s of the books, but adding all the sparkle sparkle, Hollywood casted, annoying directors who like to change great books into their own twisted visions really bugs me. Wake, and Vampire Academy are two of my favorite favorite series ever, and I’ll just say I was less than happy when I heard they were being made into movies. But maybe they will be able to find that one director out there that will actually make the books what they are, instead of what they think it should be. *Toes and Fingers Crossed!*

That’s my opinion on the whole YA into movies phenom, what do you think?

Waiting on Wednesday #18- Forsaken

Waiting On Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Release Date: January 7th 2011
Publisher:  Macmillan Children's Books
Paranormal/Supernatural Romance


Riley has always wanted to be a Demon Trapper like her father, and she's already following in his footsteps as one of the best. But it's tough being the only girl in an all-guy world, especially when three of those guys start making her life more complicated: Simon, the angelic apprentice who has heaven on his side; Beck, the tough trapper who thinks he's God's gift, and Ori, the strikingly sexy stranger who keeps turning up to save her ass. One thing's for sure - if she doesn't keep her wits about her there'll be hell to pay... - from Goodreads
 Have you ever wanted a book just because it reminded you of another book, and if you really really wanted it, you could pretend in your mind that that book was going to be just as good as the book in which it reminded you of. Yes? No? You following me here? Well that is why I have decided that I really want to read this book. Though it seems that it is not only going to be a love triangle, but a love quadrilateral (I could have said square, but the sophisticated thing to do is use big words these days). With this WoW I am officially ending the love triangle trend that has become of my WoWs. For 1 reason, I despise books with love triangles. I don't like to read them. I like the leading male, then all of a sudden a new leading male comes and there is this huge catastrophe. OR, I don't like the leading male, then another one whom I do like comes, and the leading female seems to want the 1st leading male when it is obvious he is a loser. You see what I mean. But I'm hoping this one will be one of the good love shape books, fingers crossed. Oh and if my rant hasn't distracted you and you are still wondering which book this one reminds me of, it's the Strange Angels series by.  Lili St. Crow!

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

Goodbye Involuntary Hiatus+ Updates!!!

Untitled-1

Hello people of the blogging community!!! It has been so long since I have written up a post,  and really there is no excuse for that. Except if you count the fact that school started 3 weeks ago for me and I am already swamped with homework, projects, and midterms. I mean really, which teacher gives a midterm after only 3 weeks of school. You'll be lucky if I remember your name after three weeks. Anyway, school has really become a hassle. I know Junior year is my make it or break it year so I am trying to start off as best as I can. So blogging has actually taken the back burner in my life which is not what I want. But since I'm in class to 3 o'clock everyday, and from 3 o'clock to 6:30 I have volleyball practice, and after that finishing my homework at 12 every night, its hard to find time to blog. Basically I am stressed to the brink of wanting to pull out my hair. But I did it last year, and I am more than determined to do it this year. So yeah that is my little, or long hiatus disclaimer/excuse/rambling paragraph.

Updates!

So as I try to get back into the swing of things I have planned a lot. I would really like to do more discussion posts and I have a lot of ideas for those too. If you guys have any idea’s for discussion posts feel free to let me know.

I have a lot of reviews on newly released books I would like to get out soon. But is sucks that every week I have a new book I have to read for AP English, and you know I never get tired of boring 100 year old, nonfiction books!

I have been thinking about doing a vlog. I’m not really sure I want to do it for In My Mailbox unless I get a lot a lot of books. I really like the idea of doing a video review of a series. I have a series in mind that I really want to review, and since it has a lot of books in the series, I thought a video review would be great for that. We’ll see…

*Non Blog Related*

We won our first 2 volleyball games. Of course it is still pre-season, but they were both awesome teams and we beat them both in 4 games which is so awesome. I can tell this year is going to be a great year for our team. In our last game I averaged 6 kills per game and 2 blocks. It’s all so exciting, I can’t wait for our next game.

I am currently failing pre-calculus. My life as I know it, is ending.

That last one was a bit overdramatic but what are you gonna do?

I am working on starting a new blog on something that I love but is completely unrelated to this blog. I’m not sure I am going to announce it on this blog since it is so unrelated.  You’ll get a hint to what it is in my next post!

Well that’s all folks! I’m trying my best to get back into the swing of things. Again I apologize for being missing in action for so long!!! I hope to get updated on everything I’ve missed!
