YA book reviews, reading and recommending since 2009

TGIF

The title, my friend, stands for Thank God It’s Friday. Yup it’s friday! Let’s all do a celebratory dance and enjoy the weekend before it’s over. Don’t mind my rambling because today I’m going to be rambling about random things that might not make sense to you but makes complete sense to me.

First off, I finished Prada and Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard and it was the cutest read. I lost track of the number of times I laughed-out-loud while reading it. I’m now reading As You Wish by Jackson Pearce. It’s good so far.

Discovered that Susane Colasanti is writing a book called Something Like Fate which comes out in 2010. I am in love with the title. I really hope the cover doesn’t disappoint!

Interesting article for authors about the dos and don’ts when asking people to blurb your book. Adele has a great guide to when asking authors/publishers for ARCs.

Kay Cassidy’s book THE CINDERELLA SOCIETY is now available for preorder on Amazon. Yay!

Now here’s the really boring part where I talk about history. I know you’re probably thinking “Seriously WTF?”. On August 6 1945 the first atomic bomb was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. I just wanted to say that I am sorry to all those innocent people who died and were injured during the bombing. But I wished the Japanese had surrendered earlier, they would have avoided this entirely. And if the bomb was not dropped, would the Japanese have continued torturing people? Well I think they would have. And as we are on the topic of history I want to add that I am also very disgusted by the Nanking Massacre. I try to keep my book review blog to be focused on books only so if you want to know more, Google is your friend.

I also want to share this awesome ZOMBIE parody of Taylor Swift – You Belong With Me.

So, I know at this point you’re wondering how random I can possibly get. Don’t worry, congrats, you are reaching the end. To everyone who I owe bookmarks and books, I am super sorry for not sending them out. *Hangs head in shame*

I think everyone is prepared to throw rotten tomatoes at me. This picture will describe how I am feeling right now.

Wishing everyone a great August!

Brilliant video

Isn’t this video awesome? Zombies and bunnies! =)

Something Maybe at the…

…dentist!

I’m bored and I thought I’d show you some pictures that I took for Elizabeth Scott’s contest. Don’t worry, the dentist was super nice to Kate and Hannah and let Kate take pictures. =)

No stealing my images please.

My first email to an author

This is kind of embarrassing but here goes nothing.

This email was written to Ellen Schreiber, who writes the Vampire Kisses series.

Dear Ellen,

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,
Kate

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.

I met Sarah Dessen!

Oh my gosh it was an amazing experience meeting Sarah. Sarah was so nice and sweet. She gave me a ARC of Along For The Ride and it’s autographed too! đŸ™‚ OH MY GOD right?

So I was starstruck when I met Sarah. I could not utter anything except a small “hi”. What’s the coolest thing? I got a picture of me and Sarah together.
