Jeez, How Long Has It Been?

I don't think I posted these last two weeks. That sucks, I'm sorry! But I've read books. A Lot of books in the last three weeks. So I'll put them all the last Teen Tuesday that I've missed into this post. In the last three weeks, I've read:

  1. Guyaholic by Carolyn Mackler
  2. Perfect You by Elizabeth Scott
  3. How To Build A House by Dana Reinhardt
  4. Fabulous Terrible (Adventures of You) by Sophie Talbot
  5. Project 17 by Laurie Faria Stolarz
  6. Model: A Memoir by Cheryl Diamond.
Wow, remember those days when I read 6 books a week? It feels like it won't ever happen. So I'll put all these together in the Little Bestie Awards:
  • Best Character: Tie=Cheryl Diamond in Model/Kate Brown in Perfect You
  • Best Plot: Project 17 by Laurie Faria Stolarz
  • Best Setting: Tie=Project 17/Model
  • Best Writing: Elizabeth Scott-Perfect You
Winning Book(s): Perfect You by Elizabeth Scott/Project 17 by Laurie Faria Stolarz/Model: A Memoir by Cheryl Diamond.

Well, what can I say? All the books above are fabulous, but those top three were terrific. All of the three were 5/5 stars. Very recommended.

Right now I'm reading I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone by Stephanie Kuehnert, I'm less then a 100 pages and find it addicting so far. I love Emily, she's a great character. So I should finish it this week. I have a lot of books I need to read....Hmmm....let's see, the books I plan to read in the next week are: Dream Factory by Brad Barkley and Heather Hepler and Skin Deep by EM Crane and if I'm lucky, Outside Beauty by Cynthia Kadohata. Check out my blog today for an interview with Jennifer Ziegler and also, you might want to check out my blog on Friday. . .

But in other news, is anybody doing the 24 Hr. Read-A-Thon this Saturday? I might. Though it might be hard. Also, tomorrow is my Friday! Yay! I get a four day weekend this week! Aren't I lucky?!?! but guess WHY we get the two days off? Hunting! Though, I'm not apart of it. But I live in Minnesota and EVERYBODY hunts, which is kind of cool becasue you get two days off. So yay me! More reading time!

What are you doing this weekend?

I love I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone, and I'm going to Stephanie Kuehnert's book signing this weekend in Madison. If you ever get the chance, send Stephanie a MySpace message or email... she's such an awesome person to talk to! I can't wait to meet her... (I totally just typed "meat here" on accident... I am so tired)

Dream Factory is such a cute book =D

And you actually get time off for hunting? We don't get any time off but we do get excused absences... all you have to do is fill out some sort of form and you get to skip school for a day to hunt. I used to get so mad because I actually had to be at school while other people shot deer all day.

Yeah, we get excused absents also. I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone is a strong deep book and I only have 100 pages left!
