My first Teen Tuesday post

Ok so I guess we just talk about the things that we have done this week and read and so forth so here I go.

Yesterday I finished, the AMAZING, The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong, and you can find my review about it here. I absolutely loved it! i never expected it to end the way that it did. When I finish it I was so... hyper I guess you could say, because I was really getting into it and then BAM!! It's over. So I read that this week and right now I am currently reading Audrey Wait by Robin Benway. Im not too sure what I think of it yet. I am only on like page 10 so. I have heard a lot of good things about it and hope that I am going to like it.

And now for my OMG moment of the day, I dont have these everyday but I did today. I recently contacted an author about a book for my brother. He read their first series, and loved it so I asked about her new book that she has coming out soon. Well when I opened my mailbox this morning there it was. He has no idea about it and I cant wait to give it to him because I think that he would just die if he knew about it right now. I know that when I do give it to him though I am going to have to lift him up off the floor.

Also I am waiting for my WAKE and FADE books by Lisa McMann to get here! We ordered them just earlier this week and they are supposed to be here by the 31st and I want to read them so, so, so, so bad! So thats all this week and I will be looking forward to talking about what has happened between now and next Tuesday. Hope you liked my first post.

Is It Really Tuesday?

Alright, I have no idea if it's Tuesday or not. My internal clock is at a whack from sleeping for something like three days straight.

I'm going to assume it IS Tuesday and write a quicky post about what I'm reading.

There are so many ballads. Achy breaky country songs. Mournful pop songs. Then there’s the rare punk ballad, the ballad of suburbia: louder, faster, angrier . . . till it drowns out the silence.

Kara hasn’t been back to Oak Park since the end of junior year, when a heroin overdose nearly killed her and sirens heralded her exit. Four years later, she returns to face the music. Her life changed forever back in high school: her family disintegrated, she ran around with a whole new crowd of friends, she partied a little too hard, and she fell in love with gorgeous bad boy Adrian, who left her to die that day in Scoville Park. . . .

Amidst the music, the booze, the drugs, and the drama, her friends filled a notebook with heartbreakingly honest confessions of the moments that defined and shattered their young lives. Now, finally, Kara is ready to write her own.

I'm loving it so far. I'm around the part where Christian is insisting Kara go out with him, and I think he is just THE SWEETEST. Plus, this author has my EXACT taste in music and disdain in metal heads. It's seriously a great book and I can't wait ot finish so I can write my review. I started it yesterday and I'm already half finished. I didn't even finish and I'm already reccomending it to all my friends.

Other then that, it's a rather uneventful reading week for me. I got a few ARCs in the mail, but nothing worth talking about.

So, that's it for me. Have a great Tuesday, you little scamps!
