Unfortunately, I have to make this really quick...
But SCHOOL IS COMING. It is coming SO fast, it's only two days away.... TWO!
Are you ready?
(BTW, we got our library card!)
WE GET TO PARTY LIKE THERE IS NO TOMORROW!
Hehehe.... just kidding. You've got way more responsibilities when you're thirteen. And trust me, I may sound SUPER crazy, but it's really fun. Anywhooo, since we are 13, we can watch PG-13 movies! YAY!
But, the first PG-13 movie that we wanted to watch wasn't available...
It was Enders Game, which we really, really want to watch! :3 Our mother says it's a really good movie, and that makes us even more excited. And after that movie, we want to watch the Avenger movies, like Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, the Avengers, etc. We can finally watch the 3rd Harry Potter movie (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban). We can also start are slow and heavy ascent to reading Teen/Young Adult books (I want to read the Princess books by Jessica Day George first...). :3
I also can't wait to get a library card! I really want one, but I have no idea when I'm going to get that or if I'm going to get it when I'm 16. It's a huge possibility that we get one when we are 16... But hey! We can try and get it when we're 13 or 14!
Also, with the summer weather coming, we can safely say that we are ready for a new layout! But the one we wanted wasn't our favorite, so we are trying to pick another one. We'll tell you when we are going to change! :3
Tell us in the comments what you are ready to do this summer!
I absolutely LOVED TABC!!!!! I had the best time meeting all those authors and taking notes on those amazing classes! --> Head over to My Writing Journey by Bianca so you can see what classes she took!
I hope that we can go next year!!! I can't wait to find out which Keynote speakers are going to be there next year!! This year it was Brandon Sanderson and Jessica Day George! :D They both are so awesome!!!
I also plan to do Camp NaNoWriMo! <-- Click on Camp NaNoWriMo to get you to the site...
If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, there are all these white words. If you look, the first word on the top line is "About". Click on that to find out more on Camp NaNoWriMo.
I hope I can do Camp NaNoWriMo, and if not this month, then I want to do it in June (it says that at the "About" page)!
Are you excited for anything? Tell us in the comments!
There are millions and millions of amazing books out there, making your already long list of "Oh My Goodness, I Need To Read This Book" even longer. Then when summer rolls around, and your local library is doing the "Summer Reading Challenge", you have the chance to get some books off of your list. But, when you've completed the Summer Reading Challenge, you look down at your list and find out that you only took off a fourth of the list. Flabbergasted, you quickly rush to the library with your library card in your pocket (or you go with your mom or dad who have a library card) and check-out all the books that you can manage to find that are at the library. You rush home and start reading. You read all the books that you got, and you're about to go to the library to get some more books when your parents remind you that school starts tomorrow. You rush over to the calendar to make sure, and it's right there in bright blue marker ink: School Starts.
Then, you're in the middle of school one day, and your friends introduce you to a new book series. You go look at it on Amazon (or where ever you go and search for books) and find out that this series has more than 5 books. You grab out your long list of books names and your write down ALL of the book names that are in the series. A few days later, the same process happens, but this time, there are more than 12 books in that series (is there a books series that has more than 12 books? I don't know of any...) and you quickly go write all the names down. After a few more process of that, you find out that your list has more books than what it used to have before you started the "Summer Reading Challenge" that summer.
This has/hasn't happened to me.
Has: Lot of friends suggest these awesome looking/sounding books to me, and my imaginary list of books that I need to read keeps getting longer.
Hasn't: I haven't read books off of my list for the "Summer Reading Challenge" and I find out how many books there are in the series as I read the books. I have an imaginary book list (though I should write them down), and the books I want to read are sometimes how-to guides (I like those books). I haven't rushed to the library and get all the books that I have wanted to read that the library has available. If they don't have the book(s) I'm looking for, I just look and find another book that sounds interesting. And there a few more things on the "Hasn't" list, but I don't really want to do those... the "Hasn't" list is already long..
There are a lot of books that I really want to read, but I either don't have the time too or there is some stuff that I need to do.
Here are some of the books that I want to read... (I'm just going to do book names...)
The Cloak Society trilogy by Jeramey Kraatz
I've already read the first book for this trilogy, and I've been wanting to read the other 2 books! I absolutely love the first book and can't wait for what the other 2 have in store! :3
Keeper of the Lost Cities series by Shannon Messenger
I haven't read any of these books, but I really want to. These books look and sound really good and my oldest sister absolutely love this series! The 4th book (according to Amazon) is coming out on November 3rd, 2015 (if that's what it means by "This title will be released on November 3rd, 2015").
Oracles of Delphi Keep series by Victoria Laurie
I was sitting in a library and I found this book, and started reading it while I was waiting. What I read of this book was super amazing!!! But I was reading the reviews on the 3rd book and the book series got cancelled! I'm still going to read the books, though.
The Magic Thief series by Sarah Prineas
I absolutely LOVE this series!!! I found out a quite a while ago (I think I found out in December) that there was a 4th book to this series and that totally made me freak out. I was happy with the ending of the 3rd book, but she came out with a 4th one! People, if the books you love says series, than there is going to be more than 3 or 4 books. So expect more... I didn't... what so ever. For quite a lot of book series. I can't wait to read the 4th book!
Winterling series or trilogy by Sarah Prineas
I loved the first book! I can't wait to read the other two books!!! :3 I don't know whether it is a trilogy or a series though. One Amazon source said it was a series, but on her author page (which is on Amazon) she said that it was a trilogy. So I don't know which one it is... sorry.
(While looking at those books, I found some more books that looked pretty interesting and found out what their summaries were. I really want to read the books that you are going to read below.)
The Accidental Hero (A Jack Blank Adventure) by Matt Myklusch (SERIES)
This is the first book in the series and it sounds AMAZING!!! I really want to read this book! Hope the library here has it...
Okay, I just went to the library site and I found the book series, but the first book (at the library) isn't called "The Accidental Hero". It's called "Jack Blank and the Imagine Nation". So, which ever one it is, I want to read it! :3
Children of the Red King #1: Midnight for Charlie Bone by Jenny Nimmo (SERIES)
First thing, I love her last name! :3 The way I say her last name is Nemo, so I think her last name is cute. I'm SUPER sorry if I'm saying your last name wrong!
I really want to read this book. I SUPER-DUPER want to read this book... here is the summary that Amazon has provided.
Amazon Summary for Children of the Red King #1: Midnight for Charlie Bone:
A mysterious case, the search for a missing girl, and a legacy of magic...
When Charlie Bone discovers that he can hear the conversations of people in photographs, he is shipped off to Bloor's Academy, an elite school for the rich, gifted, and magically endowed. Once there, he realizes that some of his classmates have equally mysterious powers, and Charlie becomes absorbed in uncovering their dangerous secrets.
When Bianca and I read that he had the ability to hear the conversations of people, we were all like, "Oh, he's got telepathy." But when we read the photographs part, our minds were completely blown away. Figuratively. Not literally. It sounds like a super awesome book!
For the Accidental Hero/Jack Blank and the Imagine Nation and the Children of the Red King #1: Midnight for Charlie Bone, I have NOT read these books. I just found them, read the summaries and thought they sounded cool.
What are some of the books that you have on your "I Must Read These" book list? Tell me in the comments! :3
So Charisma and I have offically decided to shut down the Monday Mayhem's and Saturday Specials, because it just wasn't working for us. Instead, we are going to do Top Ten Tuesdays created by The Broke and the Bookish. We will have redesign the page that use to be for Monday Mayhem and Saturday Specials and instead use it for the links for our Top Ten Tuesday Posts.
I, for one, am SUPER excited, because I saw TONS and TONS of other people do this and in my head, I was thinking, 'Where in the world did they find that?' AND I FOUND IT! It actually took me a long time to find it. I had to go to like, three different blogs to find this one. It was super funny, but very nerve-racking, although, I did find some pretty good blogs.
Not only do I have Enrichment Classes today I've got Yoga! And that gets me all pumped up and super happy. X3 How awesome is that? Okay, so you know how Disney is making a live-action Cinderella? Yeah, I went to the Disney blog and apparently Disney is making a live-action Belle next! I am SO excited!
I'm mean don't you just love Belle?
Okay, okay, I get it. Only some people LOVE Belle, others like her and all. But really who doesn't love her? She's got the cutest outfits.
She reads like, all the time. ALL THE TIME!! I WANT TO READ ALL THE TIME LIKE SHE DOES. SHE CAN SING AND READ PEOPLE.... SING AND READ! I can't do that...
Yes, Belle, I'm sure you did! (Would you mind telling me the title?) I would love to talk to Belle, IT WOULD BE LIKE TALKING TO A CELEBRITY!
WE LOVE YOU BELLE!
BTW, reading is so much fun! IT TAKES YOU TO BEAUTIFUL PLACES! I like to read whenever so I can escape to my Fantasy World (Reality.... It sounds different from Fantasy huh?). Again, I'll be doing a blog post in Coming Soon: Book, I've got TONS to tell you guys about! So stay in tuned!
Today I'm going to be talking about Libraries! Who doesn't love a good library? It's full of books! Book after book after book after book after book.... Aah! *Dreamily imagines a library*
As we all the libraries and reading, tell me in the comments what YOUR favorite book is!
Thanks and please comment!
