I am so sorry but there’s gonna be a slight delay in the Gallagher Girls book discussion for my chapter, chapter 6. I had a bad day and only five hours of sleep. I’m very tired and I don’t have the energy to do anything. I hope you guys understand. Have a nice day.
In the mean time, view the other chapters.
Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3, Chapter 4.
No one wanted Ai Ling. And deep down she is relieved—despite the dishonor she has brought upon her family—to be unbetrothed and free, not some stranger’s subservient bride banished to the inner quarters.
But now, something is after her. Something terrifying—a force she cannot comprehend. And as pieces of the puzzle start to fit together, Ai Ling begins to understand that her journey to the Palace of Fragrant Dreams isn’t only a quest to find her beloved father but a venture with stakes larger than she could have imagined.
Bravery, intelligence, the will to fight and fight hard . . . she will need all of these things. Just as she will need the new and mysterious power growing within her. She will also need help.
It is Chen Yong who finds her partly submerged and barely breathing at the edge of a deep lake. There is something of unspeakable evil trying to drag her under. On a quest of his own, Chen Yong offers that help.. and perhaps more.

Everyone thinks their parents are embarrassing, but Hannah knows she’s got them all beat. Her dad made a fortune showcasing photos of pretty girls and his party lifestyle all over the Internet, and her mom was once one of her dad’s girlfriends and is now the star of her own website. After getting the wrong kind of attention for way too long, Hannah has mastered the art of staying under the radar…and that’s just how she likes it.
Of course, that doesn’t help her get noticed by her crush. Hannah’s sure that gorgeous, sensitive Josh is her soul mate. But trying to get him to notice her; wondering why she suddenly can’t stop thinking about another guy, Finn; and dealing with her parents make Hannah feel like she’s going crazy. Yet she’s determined to make things work out the way she wants — only what she wants may not be what she needs….
I’m so sorry for taking so long to review this book. On with my review. Embarrassing parents, Hannah I feel you! My parents, sigh, are pretty embarrassing too. I guess most teenagers can relate to that. I must say, Hannah’s mom surprised me. I’ve read another book about the character’s mom was those type of irresponsible parents who use the child’s money but Hannah’s mom was different! She didn’t accept Hannah’s money and that’s good. =)
The fast-food place where they worked at was really cute. I’ve never read a book where the characters worked at a drive in. It’s pretty cool. Finn was like how I expected, sweet and nice. In my opinion, Josh seemed like a two timer, how could he put his hand on Hannah’s face when he had a girlfriend! Well, the plot was cliche but I still bought the book. xD I must *ahem* emphasize that the book cost as much as a Benefit lip gloss. But it was worth the money. =) Oh and after reading the book, I understand why Elizabeth had the Out of This World contest to win a star!
So in conclusion, yay for Elizabeth Scott! Something, Maybe did not disappoint. And it looks really pretty on my bookshelf.

This is kind of embarrassing but here goes nothing.
This email was written to Ellen Schreiber, who writes the Vampire Kisses series.
I am a big fan of your books. I read the first two books for Vampire Kisses already. I’m currently waiting for the third book because it is checked out in every single library where I live.
Raven and I might be like totally opposite. I’m kinda girly as I like hot pink but I swear black is still my fave. Tho I’m not gothic or punk like Raven, I really envy Raven. I am not allowed to dressed up like every day is halloween if I’m allowed to I would love to dress like Raven. Another reason is because I’m only 12 years old. Like kinda young eh? But I read books that are way beyond my level of reading like Gossip Girls, The Clique etc.
I’m not sure who will be reading this letter, Ellen’s Secretary or Ellen herself. I’m not even sure if you will read my letter Ellen. I’m sure you get at least 100+ emails a day. I just wanted to tell you that your books are great and you really should make a movie out of the Vampire Kisses Series. I would be the first to watch!
Keep writing Vampire Kisses books, I will keep reading! Good luck.
Your till the vampire kisses,
Ain’t I the cutest and LOL-est kiddo ever? I was so excited when Ellen replied to my email. Haha. 2 years ago, one of my seniors borrowed my copy of VK, but when she returned it, it was all yellow. She took ONE YEAR to return the book to me. I loaned her four books and she only returned two. Now she’s no longer in my school so I can’t get back my other two books. =(
So that’s my first email to an author and she actually replied. Go ahead and laugh at how funny I was.
This week was slow but I was busy anyway. I haven’t had the chance to blog since Wednesday. I will be scheduling some posts for next weekand the week after because I will be super busy over the next four weeks. Sorry if I don’t reply to comments! No time. But if it’s urgent, email me.
In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren and she was inspired by Alea.
In My Mailbox:
No books, only lots of autographs by many different authors from the big NY signing. The authors are
Aimee Friedman, Maureen Johnson, Sarah MacLean, Lisa Ann Sandell, Maryrose Wood, Lizabeth Zindel, Susane Colasanti, David Levithan, Matthue Roth, Courtney Scheinmel and Lynn Weingarten. The signatures are on a cute piece of paper that says Nancy’s Mysterious Letter and it’s the book cover for Nancy’s Mysterious Letter actually.
A big thank you to Melissa Walker!

That’s all and I hope your week was great!
Edit: My friend’s birthday is coming up. Can anyone suggest a good book to get for her? Something light perhaps, not those dark and scary types. No eating disorders eithers. And paperback. Thanks!
Hi all, welcome to the second book discussion for the first book in the Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter.
Synopsis: Cammie Morgan is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, a fairly typical all-girls school-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 in seven different ways, she has no idea what to do when she meets 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?
Cammie Morgan may be an elite spy-in-training, but in her sophomore year, she’s on her most dangerous mission-falling in love.
There are no right or wrong answers. This discussion is open to everyone! Just a FYI, this post contains spoilers.
Well, here are the questions:
- How do you think Joe Solomon knew Bex’s father?
- Why do you think Joe was late for the first CoveOps class?
- What do you think was Joe’s purpose of mentioning Cammie’s father, knowing it will hurt her feelings?
- What was your impression of Joe Solomon after the first CoveOps class?
- Would you want to be the daughter of the headmistress like Cammie?
Friday, Reyna will be posting the discussion for chapter 3 and Katie with chapter 4 on Saturday.
