Okay so I recently put my blog on a list of book bloggers, and honestly it’s pretty cool. So for the next few posts it’s going to be mostly book reviews. Right now I’m reading the first book that someone requested I write a review of, and so far I must say it’s really interesting. It’s called Blood Skies by Steven Montano. It sounds like something straight out of a Stargate show. It is set up very interestingly so far. Granted, I’m still in the prologue but as of right now it’s following a disembodied entity that is observing an almost futuristic city. With the disembodied entity is another one, a female, and so far that’s it.
There was one quote though that I really liked, and will probably be in the full review later with this long description as to how it reminded me of Stargate and lots of nerdy stuff. Anyway, the book is really good so far. More of a review to come.

Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was so much better than The Hunger Games, it kind of makes me wonder what happened with The Hunger Games. It’s the same author, but the writing styles are so different! So is the plot line.
It follows the adventure of Gregor and his little sister Boots, two kids who live in New York City. From the start of the story you learn that Gregor’s father is missing, and it seems that he just up and left. But Gregor soon discovers that that is not the case when his sister crawls through a rather large air vent in their laundry room. This air vent leads them to a place far underneath the City that seems almost like Hollow Earth from the Sanctuary tv series. It is a vast underground place made completely of stone.
It here that Gregor finds a city full of people, but they don’t quite look the same as us. They are called the Underlanders, as opposed to Overlanders which is what Gregor is. They introduce Gregor to a prophecy that holds the key to what happened to his father. But I won’t go into that because you’ll have to find that out for yourselves.
I personally liked this a lot. It made me laugh, and cry and a whole bunch of other things.

I absolutely love this book! It is so funny and awesome!
Okay this book is about a girl named Astrid who gets sent on this crazy quest by her mother to learn how to kill Unicorns. Okay I know what’s going through your head, “Unicorns? But they’re so pretty and graceful.” Right? Well you’re wrong, these unicorns are not the ones you grew up learning about. They’re deadly and venimous, they also have an attraction to the Hunters. Which causes problems for Astrid because she’s one of them. Through the training to and the actual killing of the unicorns Astrid has decided that she hates her mother and everything that this destiny involves.
But things aren’t so bad not when you have a HOT Italian-American who is in Italy for a language immersian program, and wants nothing more than to spend all of his time with you. This adorable guy’s name is Giovanni in this book and he is crazy adorable. I must say that I want one! Other than that, if you’re looking for a suspicious character, adventure and endless amounts of hilarious sarcasm you should totally read this book.
Oh but beware, if you read in the woods you might want to take care because unicorns, they’re everywhere.

I didn’t post this when I read it and I don’t really know why…. So here it is.

Alright so I have not been very active in anything, whether it be this blog, the roleplay sites that I’m on, and tumblr. Well that is because I have been watching Vlogbrothers videos like a lot of them because there are 977 and I don’t even know how many of those I’ve watched… I think it’s at least a hundred or more. So that is what I’ve been doing and is what I will continue to do until I have watched them all. (I will post links to every single thing I talk about in the bottom of this post). Now the thing called Nerdfighters is basically a huge community of their fans which can be found in multiple ways. There’s youtube, the ning, and a whole bunch of other cool things. I absolutely love them and you should go watch videos because they are fun, granted watching all of them might be a little crazy so don’t do that unless you don’t like sleep or have an insane amount of time.
Alright so that is only one thing that I’ve been doing for the majority of the week is earning Kellebrities points. They are part of Kelly Clarkson’s new rewards system that will give you cool prizes and stuff. Which is awesome because I’m a HUGE fan and cannot afford awesome stuff after already buying all of her cds (which are also in the prizes). From this, I got the most amazing google chrome skin ever! Unless of course someone has one that features any of the things that are in the picture above my homepage.
As before I mentioned that I have other things to be doing, like roleplaying and tumbling (I don’t know if that’s a real word or not but I’m making it one so it is). All of the sites that I roleplay with are on the sidebar in little picture link things (the sites call them affs.). My tumblr is crazy so I wouldn’t really recommend looking at it unless you want to be drawn into my insanity. But if you do there’s a link in the links section of this post.
I also have books that I’m reading, and books I am writing with Camp NaNoWriMo, and grad. parties because I just graduated high school, and college stuff to do, and movies that I’ve seen, and other stuff like that. So yeah I’ve been busy, also there are charities that I’ve been trying to raise money for (unsuccessfully might I add).
That’s what I’ve been doing, and this post is very uninteresting and a huge block of text but I don’t really care because if you love me you’ll read it anyway. The aforementioned links are just below this sentence in a list, and have a wonderful rest of your day and hopefully you’ll see more posts if you care.
Also, since I have shoved so many different teasers about stuff I’m writing, if you want like a chapter posted as a post, I will consider it just comment on this and tell me that you would like to read something and then I’ll make a poll and put it in a post and you can vote on which you would like to read. But for now: comments make for a happy blogger so comment!

Hey so I just got a new computer and I’m still trying to figure out how to use it. But now that I have it I will probably be posting more on here than I normally do. Sorry I haven’t been posting, but I have another blog that I update more, and I have other things that I have to do before I post. Also, I haven’t really been doing anything all that interesting so doing this is probably just stupid and not interesting.
