Hey Teen Tuesday! (Vanessa)

Hi guys.
I was wondering what the heck happened last week? No one posted? I was really lost.... and scared. But anyway. It's Tuesday! Yay. 
In the past two weeks I've read a whole lot! 
I've read 13 Little Blue Envelopes, Cindy Ella, The Outsiders, & How To Be Bad. All have been "blawsome" aka, not 5 stars. They range from 3-3.5 stars. I was really disappointed in some, I wish they could've been better. However, they still had good messages and were nice reads. I guess I've been wanting a super amazing read (one to add to my pitiful "Favorites" list in Shelfari that only contains 7 books) and haven't got any. I'm reading The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen and am hoping that it is the super amazing read I've been waiting for.
There is only one four-star book I've read in the past two weeks and its Hot Mess: Summer in the City by Julie Kraut & Shallon Lester. It had enough drama, laughter, and friends forever for a summer read. This book is something you should read over the summer (obviously, hehe). It's easy to read, fast, and cute. I loved the main character, Emma Freeman, because she's like most of us on Teen Tuesday... has a journal, likes to write, makes good grades, has good friends. She's likable and although she's doesn't get the best summer ever she's still got great friends. 
I'm in Canada visiting my mom and she likes to spoil me with presents every time I see her. Of course whenever I go visit her or she visits me it means a STACK-FULL OF NEW BOOKS! I love how bookstores smell.. ahh. These are the books I bought with her: 
  1. Audrey, Wait!
  2. The Luxe
  3. The Outsiders
  4. The Truth About Forever
  5. The Book of Luke
  6. Saving Zoe
  7. When It Happens
  8. My Mother is a French Fry and Further Proof of my Fuzzed Up Life
  9. The Mrs. Marriage Project
I can't wait to read these! Don't got much to say, other than that. If you want to read the full reviews of the books I've read head on over to my blog whatvanessareads.wordpress.com and if you haven't already go join Like OMG Teens Read (likeomgteensread.com), the coolest message board ever, where we just added a Manga section alongside everything it already has then go do that.
Have fun reading,

Like OMG sounds like something I totally need to check out.

I am sorry I didn't post at least SOMETHING now to say I was sick.

I love your term "blawsome" so maybe stealing that some day!

I know, I have no idea what happened last week...

But anyways, you bought some pretty great books. And I wish my mom would buy me a pile of books.

Megan, I really hope you check it out! It's okay about last week, I'm sorry you were sick... I wouldn't have gotten out of bed either. Haha, I like blawsome as well... its yours as much as it is mine.

Chelsie, its okay (again), at least we posted this week. Thanks, I am so glad my mother is like this. My mom is so happy I read... and she's always telling me "don't ever stop, even if you're married and have 5 kids" haha. She also bought the domain for likeomgteensread.com. She's great! I can share her if you want. :)
