Yet To Read: Last day of the month!

Yet to read: is about a book that i have never ever read before but since it is on my reading list is want to share what it is about and why i want to read it. The plot description is from

Title: The Line
Author: Teri Hall
Pages: 224
Copy: Hard Cover
Price: 11.55 was 16.99
Published: March 4, 2010

Plot:In this futuristic debut, Rachel lives with her widowed mother, who is a housekeeper on the Property, an estate that borders the Line, a protective barrier that runs along the U.S. border. After a hostile force, the Korusal, blasted the area with atomic bombs, the Line has been rigidly maintained to keep out the Others: people who were trapped in the bombs’ fallout. Rachel is intensely curious about what life is like in the Away, beyond the Line, and when she finds a message from an Other pleading for help, she jumps into action. Her efforts trigger a series of events that not only compromise everyone on the Property but also reveal dangerous secrets.

Why? It sounds fun and different. The story sounds adventurous and mysterious. Action packed maybe. . . .

The Plot is:

Colonel Richard Sharpe (Sean Bean, The Lord of the Rings) may have a nose for mischief, but his only interest now is returning to England. But before he goes, he is prevailed on for one last, seemingly straightforward duty — safe transport of some property across central India. The "property" in question turns out to be Marie-Angelique (Beatrice Rosen, 2012), who Sharpe quickly pegs as petulant, spoiled and selfish. The journey, through more than 600 miles of hostile territory, will prove to be riddled with surprises and rebellion and bring Sharpe, his comrade-in-arms Patrick Harper (Daragh O'Malley) and their ragtag troops into a dark conspiracy and one climactic, perilous battle. Sharpe's Peril is based on the characters created by novelist Bernard Cornwell. (One episode; 120 minutes; TV-PG)

Just Listen

Title: Just Listen
Author: Sarah Dessen
Pages: 371
YA/ Coming of age book

Basic Rating: 4/5
Plot: 4/5
Setting: 3/5
Characters: 3/5 1/2
Cover: 2/5 1/2 (meaning i thought it was a good cover)
My Copy: Paper back

My Recommendation: For fans of Sarah Dessen and a story with a lot of meaning and heart.

My Thoughts: I am very much impressed. This is my second Sarah Dessen book (the first i didn't like honestly) and this is my second try at reading this book. The first time i just couldn't Finnish it, i didn't like it and i couldn't get into it. And i think at the time i wasn't ready for it. It was a little out of my depth at that moment in my life. But anyways, i am so glad that i got myself to read it again. ( i wanted to try it again because i wanted to read Sarah Dessen's Lock and Key afterwards.) I recommend this book very much. Well i will start here, i really liked how it was written. The writing style is great and how the character Annabel is described through her narrating of it is great and addicting. Annabel as a character was greatly flawed, but you just had to like her. She did many things that would just make you want to scream- "Don't Do it!" or "Do it! Please!" But i really appreciate the human factor to her and the honesty of her personality. She didn't irritate me and i loved that. She was just really well made. Owen when i first tried to read this book came off to me as just a loser. But when i read it again this time i understood more of his character and got drawn into his intense nature making him one of my favorites. I really love him and just to clear things up - i don't think he is a loser. The other characters were also great and i really like them all. They were all real and believably human. The whole characters and story really was full of expression. It was sad and emotional, it was happy and bright, and it was in the middle. So many feelings spread out through this book. I learned a lot from this book, not only some facts on life that make a good point, but also how to write a good story. I give it a I LOVED IT!, because of all the things i stated above. I am just really glad (and enthused) that i finally read it. I'm grateful i gave it another chance.

Plot: Annabel Greene is the girl who has everything. At least, that's what she portrays in her modeling shoots. But Annabel's life is far from perfect. Her friendship with Sophie ended bitterly, and her older sister's eating disorder is weighing down the entire family. Isolated and ostracized at school and at home, Annabel retreats into silent acceptance. Then she meets - Owen - intense, music-obsessed, and determined to always tell the truth. And with his guidance, Annabel learns to just listen to herself and gains the courage to speak honestly. But will she be able to tell everyone what really happened the night she and Sophie stopped being friends?

A Critic - Bostan

Open Book: Just -

Open Book: Painting a smile with beautiful words and ideas. This is a bit late but i had to share these quotes. Unbelievably i found a lot in this book. It was like it was overflowing with nice words that came of easy to the ears. These are the ones that i really loved.

Annabel talking-
"If you could just be nice, then you wouldn't have to worry about arguments at all. But being nice wasn't as easy as it seemed, especially when the rest of the world could be so mean."
Page: 64
Annabel Talking-
"I was beginning to see, though, that the unknown wasn't always the greatest thing to fear. The people who know you the best can be riskier, because the words they say and the things they think have the potential to be not only scary but true, as well."

Page: 96
By: Owen Armstrong -
"music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common."

Pg 96-97
By: Owen Armstrong-
"Plus there's the fact," he went on, making it clear he didn't need me to reply anyway, "that music is a total constant. That's why we have such a strong visceral connection to it, you know? Because a song can take you back instantly to a moment, or a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed in you or the world, that one song stays the same, just like that moment. Which is pretty amazing, when you actually think about it."

Pg 104
By: Owen Armstrong-
"But i think you should be responsible about what you're putting out there for people to hear. If it can be pollution or art, why wouldn't you choose art?"

Pg 338
By: Dad-
"If you don't pay attention to the past, you'll never understand the future. It's all linked together."

Thanks Bostan!

Check it out!
Title: The Education of Bet
Author: Lauren Baratz-Logsted
List Price: $16.00 Amazon online price : $10.80
Young Adult/ Period Fiction Piece
To Be released on: (July 12, 2010)

When Will and Bet were four, tragic circumstances brought them to the same house, to be raised by a wealthy gentleman as brother and sister. Now sixteen, they’ve both enjoyed a privileged upbringing thus far. But not all is well in their household. Because she’s a girl, Bet’s world is contained within the walls of their grand home, her education limited to the rudiments of reading, writing, arithmetic, and sewing. Will’s world is much larger. He is allowed—forced, in his case—to go to school. Neither is happy.

So Bet comes up with a plan and persuades Will to give it a try: They’ll switch places. She’ll go to school as Will. Will can live as he chooses. But once Bet gets to school, she soon realizes living as a boy is going to be much more difficult than she imagined.

Why? Well it just sounded really interesting and a good read for me personally. I am looking forward to it.

Just a little note, don't forget i have a poll to the right of this page. Vote on it if you like, i would appreciate it a lot. I haven't had a poll for a while now and i thought it was time for one.

Thanks BOstan!

The Question is : "What is your favorite Johnny Depp and Tim Burton Movie?"

Lost episode 8 " Ab Aeterno"

I thought this was a great episode. I really thought it did answer some questions i had about Richard. I never would have thought that was what happened to him. Very surprised. And Oh my! That's how the boat got there. Very funny. Well it felt a little shorter this week or maybe it just went by fast. That might be more logical. Well i can't wait for next week's episode and i am looking for more answers!

Through the Looking Glass

Title: Through the looking glass & what Alice found there
Author: Lewis Carroll
Pages: 155 (149-304)
My Copy: Hard Cover Junior Library - Grosset and Dunlap
Children's Literature, British Classic

Basic Rating: 5/5

Plot: 5/5

Setting: 5/5

Characters: 5/5

Cover: 4/5 ( I just love my copy!)

My Recommendation: For anyone who loves a good classic and a great story. A story that is a bit man makes it even better!

My Thoughts: Amazing! I loved this book, Lewis Carroll is wonderfully mad. He has an imagination that truly is great. I want to have his for as long as i live, to think of things as he does is incredible and to picture a place where anything unusual happens is a simple wonderland. Alice is one of the best characters ever written, she is so sweet and good natured, her way to accept what most people won't is one of the best things about being a child. I just really love her. I loved all of the characters in this book, from Tweedledee and Tweedledum to the Red and White Queens. There were so many laughs in this book and so much heart and imagination. I think everyone needs an escape like a wonderland. The land of Looking Glass is simply put as Nonsense and what a good nonsense it is. I loved the setting, it was fantastic and funny - fantastically funny. How their are bread and butter flies, Rocking Horses, and bee's as big as elephants. I just really enjoyed it and i will read it over and over again!

Plot: Alice steps into the land of Looking Glass where everything is not as it would seem. She travels through the land, exploring and experiencing curious things. A quote from Lewis Carroll: "If i had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?"

Books and more Books

Yesterday i just got two new books. I am very excited. Both are follow ups to a series that i really liked and i can't wait to read them both. Very Very excited. Right now i just started a bunch of book series that i really like, and i think that is good. Well here they are:

Title: Fade

Pages: 248
Science Fiction YA
My Copy: Paper Back

Plot: For Janie and Cabel, real life is getting tougher than the dreams. They're just trying to carve out a little (secret) time together, but no such luck. Disturbing things are happening at Fieldridge High, yet nobody's talking. When Janie taps into a classmate's violent nightmares, the case finally breaks open - but nothing goes as planned. Not even close. Janie's in way over her head, and Cabe's shocking behavior has grave consequences for them both. Worse yet, Janie learns the truth about herself and her ability - and it's bleak. Seriously, brutally bleak. Not only is her fate as a dream catcher sealed, but what's to come is way darker than she'd even feared. .

Title: Don't judge a girl by her cover
Author: Ally Carter
Pages: 366
My Copy: Hard Cover
Plot: When Cammie "The Chameleon" Morgan visits her roommate Macey in Boston, she thinks she's in for an exciting end to her summer break. After all, she's there to watch Macey's father accept the nomination for vice president of the United States. But when you go to the world's best school (for spies), "exciting" and "deadly" are never far apart. Cammie and Macey soon find themselves trapped in a kidnappers' plot, with only their espionage skills to save them.

As her junior year begins, Cammie can't shake the memory of what happened in Boston, and even the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women doesn't feel like the safe haven it once did. Shocking secrets and old flames seem to lurk around every one of the mansion's corners as Cammie and her friends struggle to answer the questions, Who is after Macey? And how can the Gallagher Girls keep her safe?

Soon Cammie is joining Bex and Liz as Macey's private security team on the campaign trail. The girls must use their spy training at every turn as the stakes are raised, and Cammie gets closer and closer to the shocking truth..


Yet To Read: It's Thrusday But I Mean't it for Wednesday-

Yet To Read: is about a book that i really really want to get into and read. It has interested me enough to say that i really want to read it and i hope i get to. The plot description is from and the prices are too.

Title: a blue so dark
Author: Holly Schindler
Pages: 288
To be published: May 1st 2010
Price: $ 9.95


Fifteen-year-old Aura Ambrose has been hiding a secret. Her mother, a talented artist and art teacher, is slowly being consumed by schizophrenia, and Aura has been her sole caretaker ever since Aura's dad left them. Convinced that "creative" equals crazy, Aura shuns her own artistic talent. But as her mother sinks deeper into the darkness of mental illness, the hunger for a creative outlet draws Aura toward the depths of her imagination. Just as desperation threatens to swallow her whole, Aura discovers that art, love, and family are profoundly linked—and together may offer an escape from her fears.

Why? just found this book today and it sounded really good. The whole artistic side and the whole life changing facts of a mental disorder. I really want to read it.

Open Book: Through Glass

Open Book: Painting a smile with um. . . . anything that doesn't make sense. Well in this book i have found so many quotes that i LOVED but these are the ones i that i so wanted to share. Love em!

Title: Through the looking glass
Author: Lewis Carroll

Page: 198
Said by Tweedledee -
"Contrariwise," continued Tweedledee, "if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic."

Page: 221-222

Said by Alice and the White Queen -

"Alice Laughed. "There's no use in trying," she said; "one can't believe impossible things." "I dare say you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age i always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast. There goes the shawl again!"

Said by Humpty Dumpty -

"If I'd meant that, I'd have said it," said Humpty Dumpty."

Cross my heart and hope to spy

Title: Cross my heart and hope to spy
Author: Ally Carter
Pages: 236
Following book: Don't judge a girl by her cover
Basic Rating: 4/5
Plot: 4/5
Setting: 3/5
Characters: 4/5
Cover: (My copy is hardcover) 4/5

My Recommendation: For Fans of the series and for readers who like spy YA books.

My Thoughts: This book was fantastic! A great sequel and a great second for fans. (Which i defiantly am) I enjoyed reading it so much, it was just so fun and exciting to read. The story is great, full of sweetness, mystery, action, and total spy-ness. I loved the returning characters and the new characters were brilliant. So for me not to give away any more i wont say anything else in that area of things. It happens every time when i read the back of a book, what i read seems so simple and when i am actually finished with the book i feel so dumb for not seeing the secrets that are behind the simple product description. (But it is a good dumb feeling.) Well the story and the whole weaving's of Cammie Morgan's life is so amazing. I loved how again it doesn't solely focus on boys but they do appear in it. I miss Josh though and i hope he comes more into the story again in the following books. But if it is the end for him (not saying that it is for sure) it is a okay one that i can live with. Reading this book i just became so addicted. It was just a great ride to go on. I love addicting books, they are my number one favorites. (especially addicting books that are in a series) Well to sum my thoughts in a short sentence - I extremely enjoyed reading this book and it is a must if you have read number 1.


After staking out, obtaining, and then being forced to give up her first boyfriend, Josh, all Cammie Morgan wants is a peaceful semester. But that's easier said than done when you're a CIA legacy and go to the premier school in the world . . . for spies.

Cammie may have a genius I.Q., but there are still a lot of things she doesn't know. Like, will her ex-boyfriend even remember she exists? And how much trouble is she really in after what happened last semester? And most of all, why is her mother acting so strangely?

Despite Cammie's best intentions to be a normal student, danger seems to follow her. She and her friends learn that their school is going to play host to some mysterious guests--code name: Blackthorne. Then she's blamed for a security breach that leaves the school's top secret status at risk.

Soon, Cammie and her friends are crawling through walls and surveilling the school to learn the truth about Blackthorne and clear Cammie's name. Even though they have confidence in their spy skills, this time the targets are tougher (and hotter), and the stakes for Cammie's heart--and her beloved school--are higher than ever.


Open book: Hope to spy 2

Open Book: A place where i can share the quotes that inspire and put a smile to my face. (Painting it thick) Ink is the best invention ever! Well today i am sharing this quote that i found that i really liked. (well obviously i like it or i wouldn't have made this whole post for it) Anyways i soooo agree with it! I can't understand boys a whole lot either.

Alice In Wonderland

Title: Alice in Wonderland
Released: March 5, 2010
Director: Tim Burton
Screenplay: Linda Woolverton
Books: Lewis Carroll
Plot: 19-year-old Alice returns to the magical world from her childhood adventure, where she reunites with her old friends and learns of her true destiny: to end the Red Queen's reign of terror.

Okay i have been wanting to see this movie for so long, around a year i think. For a long time i had been trying to get my family interested in it, and finally when the trailer came out they were excited. Well i LOVE the book and i LOVE the story by Lewis Carroll, he is just so brilliant and ahead of his time. I always loved the characters they are just so goofy and nonsense really. (Well i do think that was what he wanted them to be.) Well the movie very much surpassed my expectations! I am very enthused and i just loved this movie. Loved Loved Loved it! You must see it. Tim Burton does more of a darker view into story's and this movie was just fantasic. He sure does like doing movies with Johnny Depp. It is very loosely based on the books, with nothing in common but just a few story lines and all the characters, but i really loved how they created the plot and a different wonderland. I try not to judge a movie on its book, because they are two totally different story's being told by different people. (unless of course the movie is directed by the writer of the book) The acting was great, Alice was wonderful and i loved the Red queen and white queen, and the mad Hatter. They were just so funny and the graphics were so cool. Wonderland looks amazing!! One place i wouldn't mind living in. Well i just wanted to share what i thought of the movie and to maybe excite some other viewers.

A very happy Critic - BOstan

Narrator talking

" Miami was at the southernmost tip of the continental United States, and it seemed that half the people who came to the city had simply followed the sun. He could see hundreds of them, lying on their backs in the tiniest of bikini slips and swimming trunks, thighs and biceps pounded to perfection in the gym and then brought out to roast. Sun worshipers? No. These people were here because they worshiped themselves."

Lost season 6 episode 7

Well i just wanted to write a little something about last nights episode. It was pretty good i thought, the flash side ways were about Ben L. and we saw a little more about him and who he is in more of the real world. (though i know his relation between him and Alex are father and daughter i thought the new relation between them is a little unhealthy and creepy in a way.)I really do feel bad for island Ben, though i don't know what i should think of him yet. Is he bad? Is he good? What is he? Those are my questions. But i really did enjoy it, more question were answered but at the same time more questions where made and so i guess when questions are answered more questions come up to replace the old ones. A good cycle i think. Well i can't wait for next weeks, i think their are only 9 new episodes left in this final season!

My New Book

Hello Hello! Today i just got a new book!! I'm very happy and excited. For a few months now i had been saving up and looking for this copy, last time i looked the store didn't have it but this time it did. It is a really nice two book "Alice in wonderland" and "Through the looking glass" in one hard cover. With really nice illustrations and everything. I really love it! I already have the first book but i didn't' have the sequel so i can't wait to finally get to read it! Here is the closest picture of the book cover that i could find. Its not exactly the same as the below picture but it is similar. (My copy isn't pink, its more green and the title just says "Alice in wonderland".) Here it is:

I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You

Title: I'd tell you i love you, but then I'd have to kill you
Author: Ally Carter
Pages: 284

Basic Rating: 4/5

Plot: 4/5

Setting: 3/5

Characters: 4/5

Cover: 3/5

Following book: Cross my heart and hope to spy

My Recommendation: For girls who like girl power and a great friendship/teen crush story with great action and funny moments that only teen girl spy's can give you.

My Thoughts: Wow! I loved it! (well you can sort of tell that i do by my ratings.) I truly loved everything about this book. Let me start on the story and plot, i loved how everything worked and were we got to go in the story. I loved how it was all about girl power in being a spy. It's my first girl spy book! And it is really creative and put together. It wasn't about any world saving mission but more of spy training which i haven't read anying fully on the lines of that. I'm so into how its not only about the boy (i love how it is about he boy, but it does have other matters in it which is cool) and i like how some chapters were just about being a girl. I also am really really happy with the ending! It was great and a brilliant way to open a beginning for a sequel. I really liked how the characters were completely down to earth girls no matter what they can do. They are smart and brilliant, but they are real and not overdone in the way of being too brilliant. I loved Cammie, she is yeah the typical normal girl who is shy and blends in - people don't notice her to much - but she is a super spy and great at what she does. I love the relationship between her and Josh. It didn't happen to fast and it wasn't gooshy (which if it is and it happens to fast it is really not always real) but it was how i think a relationship like theirs would be. I also love how she takes her relationship with her friends. No boy is worth throwing away a great sisterhood over. Josh is a really cool guy, he is actually different from a lot of other YA boys that i have read in some books. He's a nervous guy around Cammie, i think that's cute! And he does talk the typical boy language that even if a girl knows 14 different languages sometimes can't even understand. I mean what do they mean when they say " See ya later." or stuff like that. (I need a translator) But i do think he mastered a great bf. I really loved Cammie's mom, she was great. And i can totally get the whole father thing - it made me teary. Cammie's girl friends were really cool! And the great thing is that they were totally real. I did feel a bit stand-off-ish to the character Macey - i felt what the characters did about her and I'm glad how everything worked out. In the book i was on an emotional ride; happy, excited, worried, sad, and surprised. Things did catch me off guard which was great. Their are other characters (all of them) that were great, but i should hop to another subject. The setting was really good and i won't say to much more about that other than it was just a nice small town, and it was funny in a way that the town thought the Gallagher Academy is just a school for rich heiresses. And my last thing to say is that i can't wait to read the following book! "Cross my heart and hope to spy".

Plot: (Book description that is on the back of the book.) Cammie Morgan is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, a fairly typical all-girl school - typical, that is, if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE and the latest in chemical warfare in science, and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes in computer class. The Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses, but it's really a school for spies. Even though Cammie is fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man seven different ways with her bare hands, she has no idea what to do when she meet an ordinary boy who thinks she's an ordinary girl. Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, or track him through town with the skill of a real "pavement artist" - but can she maneuver a relationship with someone who can never know the truth about her?


Open Book: Love again

Open Book: Painting a smile as beautiful as the sea with fewer words than there are oceans. Okay these last quotes have nothing to do with the ocean or anything in it but i just wanted to use the picture today. I loved these two quotes, they were really nice and just well quotes! Enjoy

Plot: (Its not really a spoiler but, I'm not going to read what it is about until i get to the book. It just would sort of Spoil it a little for me, and that's why don't read it if you don't want to.) I spaced it enough so you don't have to read it, if you really don't want to!

Believing she has been absolved of past sins against the Crown, Jacky docks in London to take on her crew, but is instead arrested and sentenced to life in the newly formed penal colony in Australia.

Lost - Season 6 Episode 6 "Sundown"

OK last night was Lost and the Episode was named "Sundown" (I suppose because the episode sort of was based around the time at sundown where the darkness would be let in.) This episode was good and i very much enjoyed it. It was suspenseful and had a lot of action in it. Some of my questions where answered but not a lot. It wasn't my favorite but like i said i liked it. The flash sideways and most of the story reflected on Sayid. I'm glad it did because for a while all he was doing was being dying, dead, or just pushed to the side. We got to know more of Clair and now i think every one knows that she's completely nuts! I think her being crazy is worse than her being dead. It was exciting to see some of the changes happen, but i was shocked when some of the characters were killed. Some of them didn't have a very long run in the show. (And i must say this: i am being driven crazy (Its not a bad thing it just keeps on happening) when Jin goes somewhere he ends up missing Sun. It always seems to happen. When are they just going to see each other again, its been years!) Well i am looking forward to next weeks episode!
