Fallen by Lauren Kate


Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.

Even Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce – he goes out of his way to make that very clear. But she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, Luce has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret...even if it kills her.

Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, FALLEN is a page-turning thriller and the ultimate love story.


I really like this series. That's why I keep buying the books, and it's not becuase I fantasize about being Daniel's girlfriend that he loves more than god himself.....ok so maybe I cant say that completely convinsingly. I Like how Luce primarily dumps Cam because he keeps getting in fights. Bad boys....ok girls can deal with that, but bad boys that get in fights? Sorry but that's a little.....not ok. Or at least that's my opinion. Maybe you guys can help me with something also. It's a little off topic though. Do you think her name sounds like "Loose" or "Loose-e"? because I can understand if it's "loose" considering her full name is Lucinda which sounds like "loose-in-da" so if it's a short for that I can understand, but I can also understand if it's "loose-e" because that's a more common pronunciation. lol the things I debate about.

Ok Maybe Not

So, I found out that I don't have enough money to buy my homework yet. In fact my parents don't have enough money to give me a real birthday present this year.....again. It's for the same reason though, too. We have to save money to go to see Dusty. (Why, so we can spend 600 to see him for 5 min.? cause that's what happened last time). Whatever I don't care. All I care about is that we go to Danielle and Dusty's Pizza (there's a pizza place up in sparta that's named that. My brother and I thought we should get a discount when going there lol).
So like I was saying I'm not getting my books until next week and....to be honest...I am not gonna go another week without reading something. So the next book you should see come up is Fallen by Lauren Kate. I'm reading that book because I have the newest one in the series and it's a small series. Only four books. I should be able to finnish it in a couple days. :)

The next books I'll be reading will be homework. I am taking an AP English class this year and they gave me homework for summer. The only problem I'm having right now is that I need to GET those books first. They'll probably have them at half price books but I need to get up there first so..It might be a little while. I don't suspect it will be that long because I really need to finnish my homework so just hang in tight and I'll start those books. Just remember it'll be just as painful, maybe more, to wait to read those books. You see....this means I don't have a book to read in the mean time and this is me! The reading addict! Litteraly, addicted to reading. The first day I dont have a book The house gets clean....spotless clean. (Already done) The second day I'm on the computer for hours (that's tomarrow). The third day I'm playing video games (if you know me then you know I hate video games). The fourth day I'm watching movies (probably the harry potter series and I just got done watching all of them). Then I go really crazy actually going through the whole list of things I just mentioned all in one day, even touching up the whole house again. Then....I start....Zumba dancing......Ugh I'm so sorry I know it's scary for me, too. (I cant dance...well anyways). And then.....this is the worst part ever.....I start.....doing......MATH PROBLEMS!!!! I know scary right. I haven't gotten farther than that but I really don't want to find out. So while you sit there reading my blog post I'll probably be doing one of these things. Lets just hope I don't get to the math stage. I'm not too good at math...fairly decent, but not that great. Lets just say it would not be pretty.....yeah. Anyways just wait for hopefully a short time and there should be a post about "How to read literature like a proffesor" because you all want to know how to do that, right? lol

The Immortal Rule: Blood of Eden by Julie Kagawa


In a future world, vampires reign. Humans are blood cattle. And one girl will search for the key to save humanity.
Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a vampire city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten.

Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred of them. The vampires who keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself is attacked—and given the ultimate choice. Die…or become one of the monsters.

Faced with her own mortality, Allie becomes what she despises most. To survive, she must learn the rules of being immortal, including the most important: go long enough without human blood, and you will go mad.

Then Allie is forced to flee into the unknown, outside her city walls. There she joins a ragged band of humans who are seeking a legend—a possible cure to the disease that killed off most of humankind and created the rabids, the mindless creatures who threaten humans and vampires alike.

But it isn't easy to pass for human. Especially not around Zeke, who might see past the monster inside her. And Allie soon must decide what—and who—is worth dying for.


I LOVED this book. It was very different from what I'm used to, though. Nowadays I'm used to reading about good vamps that have souls and arn't deamons but this book totally isn't about good vamps. This book to me seemed like a cross between the movie Priest (with a reversed plot) and The Hunger Games. I love the charectors. My favorite charector, I have to say, is Kanin. The vampire who turns Allie. He's very smart but he's very brooding, too. I love how in the beggining of the book you keep thinking about the vampires as monsters and then they switch it around to the point of view of the monsters and you just get confused. You start to feel bad for the monsters. Or maybe that's just me. I'm always routing for the monsters. Like in Godzilla. They shouldn't have killed him, he just wanted to protect his babies.
Anyways, it is easy to see there is going to be another one. Hopefully soon, too. I think the next one is going to consist of Allie killing her vampire brother, rescuing Kanin from torture, and leading Stick to Eden to be with Zeke. I don't think much of Stick after he rated out Allie to the pets but I don't know if I can really blame him. And if you have no idea what I'm talking about then read the book because it's awesome.

Taking a break!

So I am reading a giant series right now with not very many pages in them individually. There are about 15 books in this series with about 200 pages in them all. That is so not easy to keep track of every single one of them considering I finnish about two of them a day on a lazy day. So I hope you forgive me but I'm taking a break with this one. The next time you hear from me on this particular blog will be in a week or so at the most. Not that long but still thought you should know why I havn't been posting. The next book I'm reading is called; The immortal rules (book of eden)so that's what you should be looking for to show up next.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling


Ten years after Potter-mania first swept the globe, the epic series draws to a close with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the greatly anticipated seventh and final book of the internationally revered Harry Potter series. Prophecies will be fulfilled. Beloved characters will die. Questions will be answered. (Is Dumbledore really gone forever? Who is R.A.B.? Is Severus Snape truly a villain?) In this final volume, Harry's seemingly impossible quest is to discover the locations of the remaining horcruxes--items sacred to Lord Voldemort containing shreds of his soul, making him immortal--and destroy them, saving the world from becoming a Death Eaters' paradise where Muggles are prey and purebloods rule. Accompanied by Ron and Hermione, Harry embarks on a dangerous, confusing, and often frustrating journey to discover the horcruxes. The trio is repeatedly in dire straits, making their mission seem, at times, doomed.

Throughout the series, author J. K. Rowling has been steadily escalating events towards the climatic battle between Harry and the Dark Lord, and numerous seemingly trivial details from the previous novels play important roles--proof of Rowling's masterly control of the sprawling and multi-layered "wizarding world" she has invented. By far the darkest of the novels, this impressive finale shows Harry bereft of his godfather Sirius Black, the wise and secretive Dumbledore, and even his friends, forced to truly grow up and face a fight where he is the sole lynchpin in the battle between righteousness and a nearly omnipotent evil. With modern problems re-imagined in a magical setting, echoes of Christianity, and an unwavering faith in goodness, Rowling's epic saga will remain a children's classic for generations to come.


Oh....My....GOD!!! That was one of the most epic books I've ever read...and that's saying something. I've read a lot of books! It's kind of refreshing, too. There have been many times where I've read a book that was the last of the sereis and be disapointed because some authors just don't know how to end a book. Rowling deffinetly knows how to end a book. Like I said....THAT WAS AWESOME!!! If you have any reason to believe that the books arn't good just shut up. 'Cause they're awesome!!!

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling


In the fifth and most recent book, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the last chapter, titled "The Second War Begins," started:

'In a brief statement Friday night, Minister of Magic Cornelius Fudge confirmed that He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named has returned to this country and is active once more. "It is with great regret that I must confirm that the wizard styling himself Lord -- well, you know who I mean -- is alive among us again," said Fudge.'

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince takes up the story of Harry Potter's sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at this point in the midst of the storm of this battle of good and evil.

The author has already said that the Half-Blood Prince is neither Harry nor Voldemort. And most importantly, the opening chapter of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has been brewing in J. K. Rowling's mind for 13 years.


One think I like about this book in particular is the connection between Harry and Dombledore. Their bond really came out in this book. Even though, to those of you that have seen the movies, Dombledore dies at the end of this book.
I just wish Harry, because he would rather break up with someone (cough cough Ginny cough cough) than have Voldemort use that person against him. That's really sweet.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling


There is a door at the end of a silent corridor. And it's haunting Harry Potter's dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror?

Here are just a few things on Harry's mind:

• A Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey.
• A venomous, disgruntled house-elf
• Ron as keeper of the Gryffindor Quidditch team
• The looming terror of the end-of-term Ordinary Wizarding Level exams

. . . and of course, the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. In the richest installment yet of J. K. Rowling's seven-part story, Harry Potter is faced with the unreliability of the very government of the magical world and the impotence of the authorities at Hogwarts.

Despite this (or perhaps because of it), he finds depth and strength in his friends, beyond what even he knew, boundless loyalty; and unbearable sacrifice.


These books get darker and darker. The sense of excitement that was portrayed through the first books have turned into a sense of fear.
Also, if I was pissed off at Fudge in the last book it doesn't compare to how pissed off at him I was in this book. He had no right to interfere with Hogwarts. Dombledore sure showed him though.
I feel bad for Harry, of course. If you've seen the movies you understand why. I mean Harry lost the only person that was like a parent to him. So many people afound him are dying...that sucks.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling


Fourteen-year-old Harry Potter joins the Weasleys at the Quidditch World Cup, then enters his fourth year at Hogwarts Academy where he is mysteriously entered in an unusual contest that challenges his wizarding skills, friendships and character, amid signs that an old enemy is growing stronger.


I loved this book. Again I hated how they left so much out of the movie. For one, I had no clue that Rita Skeeter was an Animagus. She can turn into a beetle? EESH! Plus why is the Ministry missing so many people who are turning into Animagus..es (lol). Fundge really pisses me off at the end of the book (the minister of magic). He refuses to believe that the Dark Lord is back. Not only that but he killed off the only evidence Donbledore had. How are they supposed to prove themselves now?
