Long Time No See?

Holy moly! I was just browsing the internet when I forgot I had a blog. I forgot! What kind of lazy bum am I?! I could have won a contest but I wouldn't know because I haven't checked me email or have bee on here for ages! I promised myself that hopefully in the next two days I will start blogging again.


Be prepared for more lists of books I've read, and I also have some books I'd like to give away in a contest~ Be on the look out!

In My Mailbox (4- Late Edition)

So, I know this is on the wrong day of the week- but for me, I think of it as just being a tad late. Also, I didn't do last weeks IMM because I was waiting for certain books to come in the mail (and because, coughcough, I'm extremely lazy!).

Beautiful Creatures (And My Inability to Get Through It).

So, for Christmas, as most of my followers know, was filled with lots of new and exciting books! Since then, I have finished many I have recieved and more. But, I still have a lot of books that are just sitting there, doing nothing. I have the free time, but my heart isn't in it. It's like, I need to be in full book mood to read the leftover books. You're not getting this, are you? Okay, I'll give you an example! xp
Beautiful Creatures, as you all should know, is a very popular book my Kami garcia & Margaret Stohl. Usually with books I finish in a day, or maybe less. Even with books as big as this one. Though to tell you the truth, I have been reading BC for a week now, and I'm only on page 115. Crazy, right? My incapablity to finish is due to the fact that... well, I don't know. That's just my problem right there!
I'm guessing that I need a motive to get through the book, so that's what I plan to ask of YOU! If you really liked Beautiful Creatures, please please please, encourage nicoliolipoli (THATS ME :D) to read it now! Thank you for reading my little ramblings. I appreciate it<3

Youtube, Myspace.. now Formspring??

Talking seriously for a moment, I have become aware of a new form of cyber bullying. A new website called Formspring.me has made itself known in the teenage world. I've just discovered this today, and frankly, I'm kind of worried. Formspring.me is a website where you can anonymously ask anyone a question, and they will answer every one that they want to. The question & answer with show up on their profile, for everyone to see. The profiles of my friends have questions that are rude & disrespectful, so I'm almost positive that in the future we'll be seeing bad news of this website.

If you'd like to ask me a nice & not harsh question about myself or my love for books, go here: link erase due to harsh questions!
Don't get me wrong, the site is pretty fun, so show people to it, but try to pervent more online bullying. Our world doesn't need any more of it! :D

That's all, thanks for listening to me rant!

In My Mailbox (2)- Week of Christmas

So, everyone, Christmas just passed so I have a lot to share. Being a teenager, my parents think it's odd of me to only ask for books, but really, they're glad I ask for mostly books instead of a new ipod (instead of my crappy nano) or a new cellphone instead.
IMM is a meme started by TheStorySiren.
Here are the books I received:

From Contest;
The Dresskeeper: Mary Naylus

From BookMooch;
Rewind: Laura Dower

For Christmas;
Heck, I am far too lazy to write the names & authors of all these books. Damn, I don't think popularity for me in the blogosphere will go very far with me if I keep this up :D

Oh, and what's not in the picture is (not including from contests' and from bookmooch):
Maximum Ride Manga 1 & 2 by James Patterson.



Gahh, someone make me known in this large blog-bookosphere we have!

Review on As You Wish: Jackson Pearce

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Book Summary (On Book):

Ever since Viola's boyfriend broke up with her, she has spent her days silently wishing—to have someone love her again and, more importantly, to belong again—until one day she inadvertently summons a young genie out of his world and into her own. He will remain until she makes three wishes.
Jinn is anxious to return home, but Viola is terrified of wishing, afraid she will not wish for the right thing, the thing that will make her truly happy. As the two spend time together, the lines between master and servant begin to blur, and soon Jinn can't deny that he's falling for Viola. But it's only after Viola makes her first wish that she realizes she's in love with Jinn as well . . . and that if she wishes twice more, he will disappear from her life—and her world—forever.

Wow! What to say about this book? I got it today, aka christmas, and i finished it today (because I have no life). It's about, as the summary says, a girl who summons a jinn, who is like her own little genie here to grant the girl, Viola, 3 wishes.

The starting of this book, for me, was great. The point of this book began from the start and it kept you wanting more from the first words. The characters (Viola, Jinn, & Lawrence) were all perfectly scripted: the gay exboyfriend, the annoying but totally in love with you boy, and the one who feels broken. For Lawrence (Viola's bestfriend/ex), you'd think you only get to see him from Viola's point-of-view, but no. Jinn also has chapters in the book which makes everything, including characters like Viola & Lawrence, more clear. So, I really enjoyed seeing into the two main characters heads.

In all, I have heard mostly great stuff about this book, and whoever liked this book was right to, because to me, it was lacking nothing. Everything was there, and all the little extra pieces of Viola's/Jinn's lifes just made the story more exciting (for example: the talk of roses & Viola's love for painting).

I rate this book 9 1/2 Live Zombies. (Dead Zombies are baddd.)
