I Started This On Sunday, But Now It's Monday: Six Events In My Boring Life That I'm Posting Late

1. My Youtube channel is coming along nicely. I have several new videos up about books (yay!), and I'm coming up with other things to do that are somewhat more fun than regular vlogging.

2. I terminated a poisonous friendship. That was a really big relief! (Turns out that it's not quite over in her mind though... Urrrgh!)

3. I hung out with my best friend Katherine this weekend! This should've been first, it was the highlight of the week.

4. Katherine and I saw Jack the Giant Slayer! It was really, really, really goooooood!!!!!! NICHOLAS HOULT!!!!!

5.Spring break is almost here! Woohoo! Hopefully, I'm going to Six Flags with Katherine!

6. Not long until I'm a senior! Yeah, sorry... The events definitely hold up to their namesake- boring.

What's Wrong With Me??

     Why can't I ever buckle down and do my homework? It's not always homework, it's chores, too. I always have something better to do. Like right now, I should really be working on the homework that my teachers gave me to catch up on, but no, I'm sitting here writing about what I should be doing. I'm so lame. The main reason that I don't want to do my homework right now is that I want to read. Why aren't I reading, you might ask? My mom took away my books... I hate it when she does that. I know exactly where they are. I just can't get them because she is RIGHT there, and even if I could get them, I have nowhere to hide them when she comes in my room. Really sucks for me that I cleaned my room. On a normal day, I could just toss it on the floor, and it would go unnoticed. My mom could just walk in and be totally oblivious to it, because there's a plethora of other things already on the floor. You wouldn't even know that there was a floor. So much stuff... Now if she came in and I tried hiding my book by throwing it on the floor, I might as well just stick it in a display case with flashing arrows pointing to it, and a sign on top that says: "Look, Mom! I sneaked into your room and stole my books back!" Maybe there would even be a built in speaker. That's how clean my room is. The only plausible place to hide my books is on my bookshelf. I wouldn't have enough time to save my spot, close the book, run across my room, stick the book in the correct location on my bookshelf in alphabetical  order by author's last name, run back to my bed, get my heart rate down, and look like I was doing my homework all along before my mom got to my room. Maybe I could hide the book in my pillows... For now, I think I'd better just get to work.

Fallen by Lauren Kate- Video Review!

     Here is the link to my video review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02e7leWwDTI&feature=youtu.be

March Wish List

     I've recently noticed that when I get money, I rarely actually buy the books on my wishlists. The only one I can think of is Good Oil, from my August wishlist, which actually has a different name for some reason: Love, and Other Perishable Items. So now, I shall put three books that I will for sure buy in the future.
The sky is dark with wings . . . .

Like sand in an hourglass, time is running out for Luce and Daniel. To stop Lucifer from erasing the past they must find the place where the angels fell to earth. Dark forces are after them, and Daniel doesn’t know if he can do this—live only to lose Luce again and again.

Yet together they will face an epic battle that will end with lifeless bodies . . . and angel dust. Great sacrifices are made. Hearts are destroyed. And suddenly Luce knows what must happen.

For she was meant to be with someone other than Daniel. The curse they’ve borne has always and only been about her—and the love she cast aside. The choice she makes now will be the only one that truly matters.

In the fight for Luce, who will win?

The astonishing conclusion to the FALLEN series. Heaven can’t wait any longer.

Cassia’s journey began with an error, a momentary glitch in the otherwise perfect fa├žade of the Society. After crossing canyons to break free, she waits, silk and paper smuggled against her skin, ready for the final chapter.

The wait is over.

One young woman has raged against those who threaten to keep away what matters most—family, love, choice. Her quiet revolution is about to explode into full-scale rebellion.

With exquisite prose, the emotionally gripping conclusion to the international–bestselling Matched trilogy returns Cassia, Ky, and Xander to the Society to save the one thing they have been denied for so long, the power to choose.
Nora and Patch thought their troubles were behind them. Hank is gone and they should be able to put his ugly vendetta to rest. But in Hank's absence, Nora has become the unwitting head of the Nephilim and must finish what Hank began. Which ultimately means destroying the fallen angels - destroying Patch.

Nora will never let that happen, so she and Patch make a plan: lead everyone to believe they have broken up, and work the system from the inside. Nora will convince the Nephilim that they are making a mistake in fighting the fallen angels, and Patch will find out everything he can from the opposing side. They will end this war before it can even begin.

But the best-laid plans often go awry. Nora is put through the paces in her new role and finds herself drawn to an addictive power she never anticipated.

As the battle lines are drawn, Nora and Patch must confront the differences that have always been between them and either choose to ignore them or let them destroy the love they have always fought for

Saturday! Six More Events in My Boring Life

1. I FINALLY reviewed a book on Youtube!! Fallen by Lauren Kate!! I'll post the video in another post.

2. If I can get 50 comments on any of my posts or videos, I will start giving things away. These could include books and other paraphernalia related to books. If you like free things, start commenting!

3. Summer cannot come soon enough for me. I am so depressed! There is way too much snow!!!!! White and wet everywhere! This is NOT okay! I wish I lived in Florida. Or at least Ireland so I could be preoccupied with everyone's amazing accent.

4. I had to clean my room so that I could empty my desk and move it out of my room. This was to make room for........ TWO NEW BOOKSHELVES THAT I HAVE YET TO BUY!!!!!! :D The one bookshelf that I currently have is about to explode. I haven't a millimeter of room left on that poor soul. The paycheck after the one I get this week will pay for them! :)

5.  I made up a joke! What did Margaret get for her 75th surprise birthday? A heart attack! :D

6. Are you as excited as I am for the Mortal Instruments: City of Bones movie?? Oh my gosh! I loooove Jamie as Jace. I expected someone younger and smaller to play Clary. I hope Lily Collins does a good job. That is all for now. Clearly my life IS really boring at the moment.
                           Happy Reading!
