Quote of the day

Those who jump may fall, but they may also fly.


I'd Tell You I Love You but Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter

Cammie Morgan goes to the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, which would not be important if it weren't for the fact that her school is a spy school.  She can hack into CIA databases, find out personal information about anyone on the street, and has a black belt in martial arts. When she goes on a mission and accidently meets a boy, she finds herself tounge tied (even though she can speak fourteen different languages) and wanting to know more. The only problem is, she is lying through her teeth. The question she must ask herself is: Does someone truly love you if your entire relationship is a lie? Find out in this stunning series by Ally Carter.
I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You (Gallagher Girls, #1)

Venom by Fiona Paul

She is a rich girl, full of jewels and luxury. He is a street artist, full of life and wonder. A dead girl and a murderer bring them together on a quest.

Daily Update

And for today's daily update:
I finished the Scarlet, the second book in Lunar Chronicles.

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . .

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.



So, I have never added a new page before, ever. But I am working hard to polish this website and make it fun for those of you who are kind enough to look on my website. It is not a published page yet, but it will be when I reaxch my goal of 100 books! {As of Feb. 10, 2013, we have 72 books. }  Have no idea what it is going to be called, sorry. :-(

March 6th 2013 Daily Update


Sometimes I have special bits of news other than book releases. Well, this is not a book release news. I have told you before that Divergent is being made into a movie and will be released in 2014. Well, Delirium fans, get a load of this, Delirium will NOT be made into a movie, instead it is turning into a TV series!!!

Fox bought the rights and has already casted the roles:

Gregg Sulkin cast as Jullian

Jeanine Mason as Hana

and finally, Lena. I think this actress is perfect for her. They are still trying to decide who should be cast as Alex. You probably know her from Nancy Drew and other famous roles, EMMA ROBERTS!!!!

To add to this news, I have decided in order to keep you updated on the Delirium TV show, I need a page for it. So, I have now published the in-progress Monthly Updates, Newz, Series, New Media, and other pages. Have fun!!!!

March Monthly Update

Can you believe it is time for another update? Wow. As always, we have an author and book of the month. And our author and book of the month honor has to go to the great Brandon Mull, in honor of the third book in the Beyonders series coming out this month.

Book of the Month: Fablehaven

(information from our favorite website,  )
For centuries mystical creatures of all description were gathered into a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite.
Kendra and her brother, Seth, have no idea that their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven. Inside the gated woods, ancient laws keep relative order among greedy trolls, mischievous satyrs, plotting witches, spiteful imps, and jealous fairies. However, when the rules get broken — Seth is a bit too curious and reckless for his own good — powerful forces of evil are unleashed, and Kendra and her brother face the greatest challenge of their lives. To save their family, Fablehaven, and perhaps even the world, Kendra and Seth must find the courage to do what they fear most.
I freaking love Brandon Mull, he is so creative. Fablehaven is alluring and it always amazes me. Brandon Mull is an amazing author.

Author of the Month: Brandon Mull

Brandon Mull

Yes, it's here..... your monthly update!!!!!!

The Newz page has not been added yet, so all news is going to be on here {the home page} until it is published. I am working hard on it. The News page is going to be AWESOME along with FOUR new sub-pages. I know, you can barely stay in your seats! Well, you better hold on to them because here comes the Monthly Update for February 2013!!!!

Author of the Month

(thank you Goodreads. This is from them, not me. So no plagurism here :) )

Syrie James

Syrie James is the bestselling author of eight critically acclaimed novels, including The Missing Manuscript of Jane Austen, The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen, The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte, Nocturne, Dracula My Love, Forbidden, and The Harrison Duet: Songbird and Propositions. Her books have been translated into eighteen foreign languages.

Syrie was named after a character in a radio show that her mother listened to as a girl. Today, Syrie is thrilled that her name is pronounced exactly the same as Siri, the iPhone personal assistant--even if they spell the name incorrectly. :)

Syrie has long been a fan of British literature of the 19th century. She also enjoys reading in a variety of other genres, including historical fiction, paranormal fiction, women's fiction, biography, memoir, romance, mystery, and the classics.

Two of Syrie's favorite authors are Jane Austen and Charlotte Brontë. Syrie's husband Bill, who has joined her in watching all the film versions of Miss Austen's novels several times over and every film version of Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights ever made, has come to share her enthusiasm, if not her obsession. Syrie also enjoys writing about brilliant, sympathetic, charismatic vampires ... and the paranormal. It was a truly wonderful experience to co-author the novel Forbidden with her son Ryan.

Syrie lived in Paris when she was seven years old, and had visited more than two dozen countries by age eight, which instilled in her a lifelong love of traveling. Her other favorite pursuits include movies, theater, great food, playing games with family and friends, Scrabble, photography, sewing, and the out of doors. Syrie designed and maintains her website,, and she welcomes visitor and messages! Like Jane Austen and Charlotte Brontë, Syrie is very fond of the countryside, and loves taking long walks.

Syrie lives with her family in Los Angeles, California. She is a member of the WGA, RWA, and a life member of JASNA (the Jane Austen Society of North America). She spent many years as a screenwriter and enjoys writing both novels and screenplays.

Syrie writes practically every weekday from 10 - 6. She says, "Many people can't wait for the weekend to arrive. It's the opposite for me. I truly love my jam-packed weekends, but from the time I turn off the computer on Friday evening to the moment I'm back in my chair on Monday morning, I'm anxious to get back to the characters I left in limbo, who are just waiting for me to continue their story."

And of course, with the Author of the Month comes a book by them. This book is called Forbidden and it was seriously AWESOME! I wanted to stay up all night reading it! Thanks to Mrs. Hall for recommending it to me!


Alec MacKenzie is searching for someone. Someone who his kind is sent to kill. He didn't ask for this job, he has been trying to live a normal life at a normal highschool. Soon he will find the person he has been sent to kill is someone that he would never want to hurt. This book was awesome. If you like Twilight and forbidden romances, this book is the one for you. Just try it, it is great!
The REAL book summary:
She should not exist.

He should not love her.

Claire Brennan has been attending Emerson Academy for two years now (the longest she and her mom have remained anywhere) and she's desperate to stay put for the rest of high school. So there's no way she's going to tell her mom about the psychic visions she's been having or the creepy warnings that she's in danger.

Alec MacKenzie is fed up with his duties to watch and, when necessary, eliminate the descendants of his angelic forefathers. He chose Emerson as the ideal hiding place where he could be normal for once. He hadn't factored Claire into his plans. . . .

Their love is forbidden, going against everything Alec has been taught to believe. But when the reason behind Claire's unusual powers is revealed and the threat to her life becomes clear, how far will Alec go to protect her

Book of the Week

Divergent by Veronica Roth

I actually couldn't have said a better summary than the bookflap did, so the summary is off of the book flap. If you liked Hunger Games, you will love this book, because it is a new twisted version of that. I know the flap says it has romance, but it is still a great book to read. For guys, I mean.
Genre: Dystopian
Watch out for: Says the H word and OMG a few times, brief talk of inappropriate things (just skip over that page, you'll still understand the book if you do)
In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue--Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen.

But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

Divergent (Divergent, #1)

Currently Reading: The Hobbit

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.

Author of the Month: December

When Richard Paul Evans wrote the #1 best-seller, The Christmas Box, he never intended on becoming an internationally known author. His quiet story of parental love and the true meaning of Christmas made history when it became simultaneously the #1 hardcover and paperback book in the nation. Since then, more than eight million copies of The Christmas Box have been printed. He has since written eleven consecutive New York Times bestsellers. He is one the few authors in history to have hit both the fiction and non-fiction bestseller lists. He has won several awards for his books including the 1998 American Mothers Book Award, two first place Storytelling World Awards, and the 2005 Romantic Times Best Women Novel of the Year Award. His books have been translated into more than 22 languages and several have been international best sellers.
