Yet To Read: Apollo 23

Yet To Read: Is about a book that i have not read yet but believe me i really want to. It is me sharing what is on my wish list and reading list. This book description is from

Title: Doctor who: Apollo 23

Author: Justin Richards

Pages: 256

Science Fiction

Publishers: BBC Books ( Out on April 22, 2010)

Amazon Price List Price: $11.99

Price: $8.09

Plot:'For a few moments this afternoon, it rained on the moon'. An astronaut in full spacesuit appears out of thin air in a busy shopping centre. Maybe it's a publicity stunt. A photo shows a well-dressed woman in a red coat lying dead at the edge of a crater on the dark side of the moon - beside her beloved dog 'Poochie'. Maybe it's a hoax. But as the Doctor and Amy find out, these are just minor events in a sinister plan to take over every human being on earth. The plot centres on a secret military base on the moon - that's where Amy and the TARDIS are. The Doctor is back on Earth, and without the TARDIS there's no way he can get to the moon to save Amy and defeat the aliens. Or is there? The Doctor discovers one last great secret that could save humanity: Apollo 23.

Why? The book sounds really good and i am interested to see what this new doctor will be like in print.

On the Bright side, I'm now the girlfriend of a sex god

Title: (US) On the Bright side, I'm now the girlfriend of a sex god (UK) It's OK, I'm wearing really big knickers
Author: Louise Rennison
Pages: 233
My Copy: Harper Collins Publishers (cover art 2006)
Following book: Knocked out by my nunga-nungas

Basic Rating: 4/5

Characters: 3/5 (great characters)

Plot: 4/5

Setting: 3/5

Cover: 3/5 and a half

Worth it? either paper or hardcover

My Recommendation: For readers who are looking for a good laugh and a sense of humor, a fabby story and something really easy to get into.

My Thoughts: I'm so happy with this book and the whole series. Again i loved Georgia and her way of describing her life. Louise Rennison really has a very goofy sense of humor and a special way that she See's things through Georgia. This book is just a really nice story to read and it will make you laugh. It's good to read if your looking for something like that. I think we can all relate to Georgia, in the largest way or even just a small way. She's goofy and at the same time lovable. For girls, she's the typical teenage girl - in a none typical way. Her mum always cracks me up, how she's just so disconnected from her daughter, but we all know she loves her. And her sister Libby is Hillary! - she has some little girl problems that are normal. So i thought this follow up was perfect for "Angus-" and I'm just so happy how the story is progressing and i can't wait to read more of the books in this series.

Plot: Georgia Nicolson is dating the Sex God so life should be perfect . . . . . . except in Georgia's life, nothing is ever Perfect. Her cat, Angus, is terrorizing the neighborhood. Her sister, Libby (who is slightly Mad), hides her pooey knickers at the bottom of Georgia's bed. Then the Sex God breaks it off because she's too young. It's time for Georgia to become a heartless boy magnet.

Open Book: Bright Side -

Open Book: Painting a smile and if i'm lucky enough a hint of a laugh at the corners of your mouth. I really liked these qoutes i have collected throughout the week. Thought they were a laugh and either true or could be true for some people.

Title: On the Bright side, i'm now the girlfriend of a sex god
Author: Louise Rennison
Page: 86
"Boy's are different from girls. Girls like to be cozy all the time but boys don't. First of all they like to get all close to you like a coiled-up rubber band, but after a while they get fed up with being too coiled and need to stretch away to their full stretchiness. Then, after a bit of on -their-own stretchy, they ping back to be close to you."

Page: 127
"Thinking about the difference between girls and boys. For instance, when girls walk home we put on lippy and makeup. We chat. Sometimes we pretend to be hunchbacks. But that is it. Perfectly normal behavior. When the Foxwood boys come out they hit each other, trip one another up, and stuff leaves or caps down each others trousers."

Pages: 205
"Am i really horrible? Perhaps i am one of those people who don't really feel things properly, like Madona."

Angus, Thongs and Full- frontal snogging

Title: Angus, thongs and full-frontal snogging
Author: Louise Rennison
Pages: 234

Basic Rating: 4/5

Characters: 3/5 and a half ( I really liked them!)

Plot: 3/5 and a half

Setting: 3/5

Cover: 3/5

My Copy: Paper Back (Harper Teen Cover art 2006) (The one above)

Following book: "On the bright side, I'm now the girlfriend of a sex god" USA copy

or UK "It's OK, I'm wearing really big knickers"

Worth it? 2/3 or 3/3 ( i would buy hardcover.)

My Recommendation: For people who like a comical genius an for fun light weighty matters. And above all for readers who love YA Comedy.

My Thoughts: This book is such a laugh. It was just real (in more of a comical way) and funny. Their was just girl topic's that real girls think about. It was light with relatable matters. I could relate to somethings and it was so hilarious to see it put into words. Georgia is very amusing and funny. She is a bit selfish and sometimes too vain, but she's a great character. We are all at times selfish and vain so that is relatable. The other characters just fit in perfectly and i like that a lot. It is different than the movie - "Angus thongs and perfect snogging" - but i think it does have to be when you combine two books together. The setting is very ace - i love Eastborne England and i thought that was brilliant. It's a diary and i normally don't go for diary's but i wanted to try this book out and i am really glad i did. It's a great book - lots of snogging, but the great thing about it is that it's clean and great fun. Related a lot to the movie that got me into the book. I can't wait to read the following book.

Plot: Georgia Nicolson's life is far from simple. Her cat, Angus, is the size of a small Labrador. Her three-year-old sister may have peed somewhere in her room. And her best friend, Jas, thinks she looks like an alien just because she accidentally shaved off her eyebrows. Enter the Sex God. This just might turn out to be the most fabbity fab year ever!


Open Book: Angus!!

OpEn BoOk: Painting a smile with words. I'm back!! I went away from my blog for a week and i have been saving this Open book for a while now. Glad i can share it will you all now.

"I am going to become a writer for Cosmo - you don't have to make any sense at all. Or maybe i'll be a bloke, they don't have to make any sese either."

"I will concentrate on my positive and not my negative, e.g., I will think less about my nose and more about my quite attractive teeth."


400 and up!

I have Past 400 posts!! I can't believe it!!! Well i guess i can't believe it because i never thought i would pass 100 or even 200 posts. Now i wonder if i can make it up to 500 or even 600. That would be a challenge, but i'll just have to wait and see if i can do it.

400 posts and up!!!

The Time of Angels (5.04)

Premiring on April 24 in the UK is Episode 4 - The Time of Angels.
Writer: Steven Moffat
Starring: Matt Smith and Karen Gillan Trailer <-

In this two-parter, the Doctor and Amy meet River Song, a spaceship crashes and the Doctor, at the request of Father Octavian, hunts the last of the Weeping Angels in the ruins of Alfava Metraxis

Victory of the Daleks (5.03)

This episode came out in the UK on April 17. The Third episode of season 5.
Writer: Mark Gatiss
Starring: Matt Smith (The Doctor) and Karen Gillan (Amy Pond)

The TARDIS materialises in the Cabinet War Rooms during the Second World War, one month after Winston Churchill (Ian McNeice) called for help. Soon they find that trouble has come their way and the doctor must find out who is with him or against him.

The Eleventh Hour Season 5 Episode 1 (5.01)

I give this episode 4.5
I loved it!!! It was brilliant and very cool! I was worried about how Matt Smith would take over the role of the doctor. The End of time was very dramatic and emotional and it was sad to see David Tennant leave, but i don't feel like Matt S is replacing him its just that the show is moving on and living in a whole new way. Its a whole new doctor and new show i think. Not only has the doctor changed, the writers, the companion, the TARDIS, the screw driver, and the doctors taste in clothes and food. This episode was such a laugh and very entertaining, i loved watching it and it got me very much excited for ever single new episodes.
Great job

Born into a broken home and an impoverished life in Jamaica, Hortense (Naomie Harris) longs for a fulfilling life in England; one with a fine house and a doorbell. The door of opportunity swings open, and Hortense is married and on her way to the promised land of post-war Britain. Steadfast dreams are soon tested by hard realities as Hortense and her husband Gilbert (David Oyelowo) face racism and poverty. In the small-minded country, their only saving grace is Queenie (Ruth Wilson, Jane Eyre). But Queenie faces her own disillusionment, married to the kind but dull Bernard (Benedict Cumberbatch, The Last Enemy). Bonded by high hopes and broken dreams, these four lives fuse together in a powerful and hopeful story of love and fulfillment. Small Island is based on the award-winning, bestselling novel by Andrea Levy. (Two episodes; 90 minutes each; TV-MA, S)


Anne Frank

This is a little late but i wanted to have a small review of Anne Frank.
I watched it on a Sunday and i was really surprised by how much i really liked it. The movie i am told is one of the most accurate that has been made. That is pretty cool i must admit. The actors were really good and i loved the way the story was being told. Like a diary but still a movie. I really liked it and i recommend it to movie lovers, History lovers, and lovers of a good drama.

The Last Song (2010)

Title: The Last Song
Year: 2010 (March)
Rating: PG
Director: Julie Anne Robinson
Writers: Nicholas Sparks (Screenplay and Novel) and Jeff Van Wie (Screenplay)
Actors: Miley Cyrus, Greg Kinnear, Bobby Coleman, Liam Hemsworth, and Kelly Preston.

My Rating: 4/5
My Thoughts: I went to see this movie yesterday with my sister and her friend. I have (had) been wanting to see it since they started playing the previews on t.v. I am not against Miley Cyrus, i know some people LOVE or HATE her. I am neither, i love some things she does and i don't care for others. To start i really liked this movie and it really got me more wanting to read the book. I love the story line from Sparks. I thought it was a good movie and i thought the acting was really good. The characters were great and i must say the scenery was really Beautiful!!!!
Miley Cyrus totally surprised me with this film and i really liked her in it - it's much different then her Disney show and i thought her character portrayal completely different (except for the music part) from her real image. The story made me shed tears, i thought it was sad but not too too sad. Some things just make me sad. Well i won't say more on that because i do not want to spoil. But we all must know that Nicholas Spark's movies have never not once been not sad. That is i think a fact. They are not all bawl your eye's out sad but you must feel sad at least once during the movie to be watching a Spark's movie.

Well thank you for listening me go on - and on,


Title: Fade (book 2)
Author: Lisa Mcmann
Pages: 248
YA Science Fiction
Book Following: Gone (book 3)

Basic Rating: 3/5 and a half (meaning i really liked it!)

Plot: 3/5!

Setting: 3/5

Characters: 4/5

Cover: Cover is so cool!

My Copy: Simon Pulse

My Recommendation: For fans of Lisa McMann and for people looking for a cool new series to get into. I recommend this book to older Teens.

My Thoughts:

This sequel to Wake was really good. I must say that i really liked it. The books plot and story was just great - the story line was addicting. The characters old and new were once again great and i really like Janie and Cabel still. (Love em!) The cover i thought is very cool - i totally get it now. I didn't before, i just thought it was cool and now i am beating myself over it, how could i not understand it! The book was addictive but not exactly as drama pact as the plot description on the back of the book - they never really are. I didn't like some parts in this book as i found somethings unnecessary. Some parts unnecessary. I didn't like all the swearing. It wasn't crazy bad, but it was to much for me. I don't like when there is swearing in books - sort of ruins it a little for me and i know for some other people too. But again i liked how it was written - the style was unique and impressive. I thought the whole realization of our lead character - Janie's - future was dim and Grim. Not exactly happy with it, but i hope it doesn't end bitterly in the 3rd book. During the end of this book it was getting more depressing for her, though it did turn around a little not completely turning happy it did though end on a happier note - i won't say any more about that. I am happy with this book and i am excited for the 3rd book - Gone.

Plot: Some Nightmares Never End.

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 Fieldrige High, yet no body'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. . . . .

Thanks Bostan~

To Watch online go to the PBS website and it will be playing from April 12 - May 11. Don't miss it!
For Jewish teenager Anne Frank (Ellie Kendrick), her diary is her one true friend and confidant. In it, she records the thoughts of a typical teen — only set against a backdrop of encroaching evil in Amsterdam during World War II. Stowed away behind a bookcase in a secret annex with her family and others to flee the Nazis, Anne experiences her time in hiding as an adventure. And, amidst closed quarters and random bomb blasts, Anne faces friction with family, a desire for independence and the first stirrings of young love. As Anne's identity solidifies, so does her resolve to be a writer — her diary a tangible and remarkable record of a young woman's first-hand observations of the Holocaust, and the innate goodness she still sees in people. Drawing on Anne Frank's own words in the most accurate-ever adaptation of the revered memoir, Masterpiece presents The Diary of Anne Frank on Holocaust Remembrance Day, 2010.

Island of the blue Dolphins

Title: Island of the blue dolphins (Read it in March)
Author: Scott O'Dell
Pages: 181
Historical Fiction

Basic Rating: 3/5 and a half ( I really liked it)
Plot: 4/5
Setting: 3/5
Characters: 4/5
Cover: 2/3 and a half (My copy is ok)
My Copy: Yearling Newbery

My Recommendation: For all ages

My Thoughts:
Island of the blue Dolphins is a really good book. Scott O' Dell did a great job writing it. Especially because it is based on a true story, being it is harder to create a real environment and a story following the real events and what could have happend if you don't have very much information. My older sister recommended this book to me about 7 years ago and finally i now read it. I am very happy i read it because i got into it and addicted to it. I should have read it years ago! The story is not long, but it is told in a Way that is not just summarizing a life story. The words are colourful and meaningful. The characters including even the animals are extremely good. The setting and story is emotional, they are both connected. In the beginning with some losses i didn't get too sad but more during the middle and end because i got to see the connection between the characters i felt losses more. Loss and gains are vital parts in this book and the out look of our main characters is both real and heartwarming. Parts in this book made me very sad and others made me very happy. The ending really made me happy and i am glad that at least it ended in that way. This book is great for kids, but i think it is a good read for Young Adults and adults, because it isn't to little kid for us. It's for all ages i think.

Plot: In the Pacific there is an island that looks like a big fish sunning itself in the sea. Around it blue dolphins swim, otters play, and sea elephants and sea birds abound. Once, Native Americans also lived on the island. And when they left and sailed to the east, one young girl was left behind. This is the story of Karana, the Native American who lived alone for years on the Island of the Blue Dolphins. Year after year she watched one season pass into another and waited for a ship to take her away. But while she waited, she kept herself alive by building shelter, making weapons, finding food, and fighting her enemies - the wild dogs. Hers is not only an unusual adventure of survival, but also a tale of natural beauty and personal discovery.
