I Suck. Majorly.

So, basically, I always forget to post these things on Tuesday. But I now REMEMBER! That's right, pigs must be flying, I remembered to post Teen Tuesday... and *huge gasp!* it's actually being posted ON TUESDAY! I'm so proud of myself. :]

Before break, I read Moonstone by Marilee Brothers, which I had gotten to review a few months back, but hadn't read. So, I read it. I was completely hooked from the second or third chapter. The sequel is coming out sometime later this year (I think, haha) and I was soooo happy when I found out that I would be getting that one to review, also. Like, you have no idea how happy I was, lol.

Then, over break, I read a bunch of books, too. I have finally gotten back into my reading kick! Whoopee!

Over break, I read:

Playing With the Boys - Liz Tigelaar
Jenny Green's Killer Junior Year - Amy Belasen
Amor and Summer Secrets - Diana Rodriguez Wallach
Cormac - Sonny Brewer

Two of them were fabulous.
One of them was okay.
One was horrible.

You thought I wasn't gonna tell you which ones, didn't you? lol.

The two fabulous ones were Amor and Summer Secrets and Playing With the Boys. I got so engrossed in the stories that I was about to kill my family if they interupted me while I was reading, haha. I could relate to all the characters, and both of them had plots that I had never heard of before.

The one that was okay was Cormac by Sonny Brewer. I got this book from BookDivas to review. It had a good story - once it got interesting. However, it didn't get interesting until around page 100-ish. Then, towards the end, it got really slow again. Otherwise, the story was wonderful and I loved it.

That leaves the horrible one. Jenny Green's Killer Junior Year. I just... didn't like it at all. It started off okay, besides the fact that the main character is a girl who is spoiled, gets whatever she wants, and says the word 'like' way too often for my taste. But as you kept going, it just got worse and worse... and worse. And the ending was waccckkkedddd ouuutttt. Seriously. If you're going to end a horrible book, at least end it in a good way, right? haha. So... I wouldn't recommend going out to buy that one... if you really want it, get it from the library.

Right now, I'm reading Cruel Summer by Alyson Noel. I'm about halfway finished and I'm hoping to finish it tonight (though that probably won't happen). It took me a while to get interested in it, but once I got hooked into the story, I was just that -- hooked. I didn't want to put the book down.

Well.. that's about it for me. My reading will become slower in the next few weeks because our midterms are the week after next (whoopee for me!). So, I'll be studying my butt off for those. I'll be reading as much as I possibly can though! I also have Solo and Ensamble, a singing competition (where I go as a soloist) a week from Saturday (!!!!), so I will be memorizing my Italian this week, lol. :D

Playing With The Boys sounds great, I'm adding it to my TBR List.
Good luck on your midterms! I'm glad I don't have those here in Argentina, only parcials, and they aren't like your midterms (I had a friend who went to the States, so she told me), and good luck onyour solo too!
xo, Ella

I have to agree with you on Jenny Green's Killer Junior Year. It was really weird in some chapters, and the sexual occurances were really awkward to read (Not that I'm against it, it's just the way the authors wrote it). The ending wasn't fabulous either.
