ALRIGHT. So, i loved anything i read written by Rick Riordan. He became my new favorite author last year. I know, i'm a little late finding out how awesome he is but....
I also LOOOOOVED reading Divergent and Insurgent by Veronica Roth!! Shes such an awesome writer for a pretty young age, and Divergent THE MOVIE is coming out 2014. Mind you, Divergent is the first book she has ever published.
The Last Guardian was another great read for me. The Artemis Fowl series was like my first book obsession when i was younger, so it brought back a lot of memories to be reading the last book of the series. :'(
Lastly, anything Madison Louise wrote was fun to read! She is one of my good friends, and its was exciting for me to read her work before all you guys got to! (: muahahahaha.

OK, thats it for now. I'll give you a little update on my writing projects the next post. Sorry i havent posted in awhile!!! LOVE YA !

You see, in a couple days im going on a 6 hour bus ride, so hopefully i can get some reading done!!!
Here we go...
1. Pride and Prejudice.[if you don't know who this is written by, you should. Her name is Jane Austen.] (I've seen the movie several times, i think its time to read the book.)
(Look, its Darcy ;D)
(COMES OUT NOVEMBER, can't wait!!!!)

(Sounds interesting!!!!)

(Dude. her dad's an FBI. Yes, im reading this.)

There's a bunch more, but the list would be VERY long if i listed all of them. You can go over to my Goodreads page and check out all the books i wanna read. 

Also, i'm thinking about doing Nanowrimo again this year!!! I already have plot/and some characters figured out, i'll give you more details later. 

'Freedom' is going well....right now i'm sorta in a hole. I'm about to start editing what i've written so far, since i don't know what else to write. :\ But keep looking for updates!!!! :D

And for me fellow Hunger Games fans....THEY'VE BEGUN FILMING!!!! 

Ta Ta for now,

Break Time!!!

Hey guys! Right now im on Fall Break, meaning i'll have time to WRITE and to READ. !!! (:
So far i've already read 2 books.
Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan:

LOVE LOVE LOVE. It was awesome, as all Percy Jackson books are. I love Annabeth's point of view....and i grew to love Piper in this one. (In he first book i didn't like her much...not sure why.)
And goodness, I love Leo and Frank's ...um...rivalry. Its awesome. And guys, the ending. Can't. even. believe. it. Uncle Rick, you torture us. CANT WAIT for the next book: The House of Hades! (but WHY fall of 2013... isn't it bad enough i have to wait for Catching Fire the movie? )

The other book i read was: Origin by Jessica Khoury
Over all, i enjoyed it. Great story line! The only thing that bugged me was the use of language. I wish they wouldn't just say those words carelessly. But, I LOVED THE CHARACTERS. Pia and Eio are adorable. :)
And i fell and love with Uncle Antonio instantly. It was really fun to read about a girl who is immortal, and how she had to pay for it. If i havent mentioned this before, i love Eio. He is awesome. End of story. 

ALRIGHT, that's what I've read so far, i'll update you guys again in a couple of days....
Now for another character reveal from WIP, Freedom. 

Gabe Reed:

(Callan McAuliffe)

Age: 16
Family: Is only child, has Mother and Father
About: Gabe is from another Section, and is the highest scorer on The Test (When you are 16 you are tested for your potential in life, and what you will succeed in.) He teases Victoria frequently  and laughs at how hard she studies. He surprises everyone that he scores the highest, because he doesn't work hard, compared to others.

Hey!!! As you can tell by the cover, i shall be revealing the title of the my WIP!!!!!!
Before i tell you, i want you to know that this title could change. But as for now, this is what i have decided. Also, feel free to give me some ideas on what you want the cover to look like:D

YOU READY???? alright....the title is......
How do you like it? It is dystopian (if you don't know what that is...it's kind of like the Hunger Games series, the Matched series, or the Divergent series.)
And here's a quote to go with it:

"Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed." – Martin Luther King, Jr
Please leave your thoughts below!!! Anddd, i have one more surprise!!!! ANOTHER character reveal!!! YAY.
Luke Stryker:
(Gregg Sulkin)
Age: 16
Family: Mother, twin sister (Victoria), his father left when he was still young.
About: He tries his hardest to take care of his sister. Luke feels responsible if anything would every happen to her. At times, he is very silly, and teases Victoria. So, in short,  he's protective but fun-loving twin brother.

Ok, i loved sharing so much with you guys today!!! Be on the look out for the next character!!!
Write soon!

The Last Guardian

Hey everyone! i finally got The Last Guardian by Eoin Colfer!!!

I loved it, it was a great final book to the series! It had me on edge, and i LOVED how Arty (Artemis Fowl, the main character) is all grown up now....
I will seriously miss this series, so thanks Eoin for an AWESOME story:D I'm kinda hoping he'll do a 'Rick Riordan', meaning he'll make a spin off series...
I loved all the characters (who wouldnt?), Butler, Artemis, Myles and Beckett, Juliet, Holly, Foaly....and ...Opal Koboi. Let me tell you, I despise Opal..but i love her cunning-ness.
For anyone who has read the series: You will love this last book!!!
For those who havent read the series: YOU MUST READ THE SERIES! :D haha.
Eoin Colfer is a genius. Maybe Eoin Colfer is a pen name, and its really Artemis Fowl who is writing these books? ;) Hmmm.....

And, did you hear? Madison Louise announced her title and summary of the NEW book she's writing

Its called: The Storm  !!! I can't wait to read it... (and to make a book cover for it...) !

Annnnnd News on my WIP:
I'm still writing! I'm not sure how many words i have, because sometimes i write the story on paper (when we're traveling....and i can't bring/take out my giant computer." Once i type it all up, i'll let you guys know!!!
Love you all, now i've gotta go! I'll post soon!!

Peace out,

50 books...and a teaser:D

HEYYYYY!!! i've read 50 books so far this year!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And, i've read ALL the books in the Percy Jackson series:D
What can i say? i love Percy and Annabeth ;)

Soooo, the main things i've read lately:

I LOVED all of these books. Chains and Forge is historical fiction about an African girl and boy who are slaves. Its really cool how, even though they were treated badly, they just kept pushing through.

The Maze Runner series is Dystopian. At first i wasnt sure if i was going to enjoy it...but in the end...i loved it. It was suspenseful, confusing (in a good way), and an emotional roller coaster (you can decided yourself if thats a good thing...)

The Son of Neptune is...fantasy? anyway, it was just...wow. I loooooooove Percy, and the new characters Hazel, Frank, and Reyna.  I ALSO like how there are 2 camps...ROMAN and GREEK!!
 (Camp Jupiter and camp Half-blood)


CANT WAIT to read this!!! Its the final book in the Artemis Fowl series. I'm gonna miss the series ;(

Now, for a little teaser. I shall tell you the names of  my characters wrom my new WIP. Sorry for not telling you the titles yet, but i switch around between a few....so bare with me.

Victoria Stryker (the story is told from her point of view..)
Luke Stryker (Victoria's twin brother)
Gabe Reed (he teases Victoria alot.)
Isaac Thorn (a nice guy who becomes her friend)
Damon (Their head instructor)
Sydney (an assistant)
Mariah (another instructor)
Rose (a kind grl who befriends Victoria)
Alice (a deaf girl who also befriends Victoria)
Lilac (a flirty girl who doesnt work hard)

THATS ALL FOR NOWWW!!! :D see you soon~
