My First Edition (Kelsey)

Hey Everybody!

This is my first ever Teen Tuesday and I am so psyched about it!

Now where to start? Well, I've read a lot of new books this past week:

1) Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway
2) Kiss Me Kill Me by Lauren Henderson
3) Guitar Girl by Sarra Manning
4) Stay With Me by Garret Freymann-Weyr
5) Swimming With The Sharks by Debbie Reed Fischer
6) Chloe Doe by Suzanne Phillips
(All of my reviews for the above books are already posted on my blog.)

This is what I like best about the books above:
Best Character: Audrey Cuttler in Audrey, Wait! and Molly Montgomery in Guitar Girl.
Best Plot: Audrey, Wait!
Best Setting: Kiss Me Kill Me/Guitar Girl---Tie.
Best Writing: Swimming with the Sharks.

Winning Books: Audrey, Wait! and Guitar Girl.

Audrey, Wait! Is such an amazing book. Guitar Girl is probably my favorite book written by a British author. Amazing books.
Now for the books I plan on reading this week. I have got to read The Big Game of Everything by Chris Lynch soon. I'm only, like, eighteen pages into the book. It's from the First Look program. It's good but a bit confusing so far but I'm going to have to get more into it by tomorrow when I pick up the books I have in the library, which are: Oh. My. Gods. by Tera Lynn Childs, Gingerbread by Rachel Cohn, How Not To Be Popular and Alpha Dog by Jennifer Ziegler, Read My Lips by Teri Brown, Saving Zoe by Alyson Noël and House of Dance by Beth Kephart. I am WAY excited to read these books. Not to mention I still have books on my bookshelf to be read. But if I don't get more into the Lynch book then I think I might have read Oh. My. Gods. instead, because I REALLY want to read Oh. My. Gods. Really badly.

Breaking Dawn. Breaking Dawn! BREAKING DAWN!!! 3 more days. 3 more days! 3 MORE DAYS!!! I wish I had pre-ordered Breaking Dawn, but I didn't so I have to go and get up early, get dressed, go out to K-Mart (the closest, and only, place within at least 2 hours of my town to get books.) and buy the book then I have to take the drive back and then I can start reading BREAKING DAWN!!!! But, oh, well, I am SUPER excited just to even read the book. Of course, my parents don't understand how big this book is to me, so I'll probably have to ride the bike the few miles to K-Mart to get the book but whatever. Hopefully it'll rain. Hehe :p! Saturday!

Well, I think that's it. Until next week,

Breaking Dawn!

I'm going to the B&N release party... you should go to one in your area (or as close as you can get). I think it's going to be really fun.

Guitar Girl seemed less amazing by its size when I saw it at the store. I don't like 100-something page books that much. I think maybe I'll borrow it from the library when it comes out, thanks for inspiring me to get it... hehe.

I'm gonna read Audrey, Wait! since I got it from the store... ahh I can't wait. :)

I would SO love to go to a Breaking Dawn release party, but the parentals have a problem with going to Duluth for a midnight party, just to get BD. It's a 3 hour drive to the closest BD Party and I guess when the gas is like it is, It's just to expensive.

Guitar Girl is a really great book. As is Sarra Manning's other book, Let's Get Lost, GG was actually smaller then I thought it was only about 250 pages. Anyway, it was hilarious, too.

Audrey, Wait! is awesome. I cannot write about how much I loved it. Her voice is amazing in the book.

P.S. I did get through half of The Big Game of Everything!!! It's hilarious.

ohh I am going to read the bg game of everything soon (before the first). I just got it in the mail yesterday.... which was dissapointing because I was hoping to get it sooner.
