Summary: from Amazon
I see him and know what this turmoil inside of me means: He's the one. My forever.
Kayla is the nature lover, the all-American beauty who can't understand why she's so drawn to distant, brooding Lucas. Adopted as a young child, she has no way of knowing that she's inherited a terrifying—and thrilling—gene that will change her life forever.
Lucas is dangerous, gorgeous . . . and a werewolf. As leader of the Dark Guardians, shape-shifters who gather deep within the state park, he has sworn to protect his pack. But when Lucas finds his true soul mate, his love could put them all in harm's way.
As Lucas and Kayla struggle with their feelings for each other, a greater danger lurks: Humans have discovered the Dark Guardians and are planning their destruction. Kayla must choose between the life she knows and the love she feels certain is her destiny.
Fantastic! This, in all honesty, is one of my first werewolf books, and I LOVED IT! Moonlight is the first of a series called Dark Guardian and I'm very excited to see where Rachel Hawthorne takes the story.
The whole story was very intriguing, i was hooked the whole time. It was a quick light read for me that i very much enjoyed. The only thing that i might have disliked about the book was the ending, but besides this it was wonderful. I recommend it to anyone who has an interest in werewolves or a typical love story with some twists.

Summary: from back of the book
Before. Miles "Pudge" Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave "the Great Perhaps" even more (Franois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . . After. Nothing is ever the same.
Unique I have never read anything like Looking for Alaska. I really had no idea what this book was about at first and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed reading it. The main characters Pundge, Alaska, and the Colonel were extremely interesting to read about. Not only the characters but the events that happen and things they get themselves into are amazing as well. John Green did an excellent job writing this, I was hooked the entire time. Looking for Alaska is definitely worth the read, I recommend this to just about anyone and everyone who enjoys a good book.

So yes I have been a little busy this month. Which has unfortunately stopped my posts completely! Which was very naughty of me. But I did have some good excuses...
1. a week in Florida

My rating: 5/5
"Don't worry, Anna. I'll tell her, okay? Just let me think about the best way to do it."
"Promise me? Promise you won't say anything?"
"Don't worry." I laughed. "It's our secret, right?"
According to her best friend Frankie, twenty days in ZanzibarBay is the perfect opportunity to have a summer fling, and if they meet one boy ever day, there's a pretty good chance Anna will find her first summer romance. Anna lightheartedly agrees to the game, but there's something she hasn't told Frankie---she's already had that kind of romance, and it was with Frankie's older brother, Matt, just before his tragic death one year ago.
Perfect! This was such a perfect summer read for me. I actually read this while on my little one week vacation to Florida and this couldn't have been more perfect timing to read this book.
The mood of this book is all over the charts for me. It seems that it is Happy then sad then melancholy then blissful then aggravating then hopeful and etc. I loved how Everything almost took place on the beach or in beachy surrounding. It made me want to actually get up and drive to the beach.
I loved most of the characters in the book. Anna and Frankie were the perfect picture of best friends with Anna being more reserved and Frankie being more loud and "look at me"
Overall, the whole book was very well written and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a summer read or just a good book.

As of Tuesday the 14th of July I will be going away to the Beautiful, Sunny, and incredibly hot state of Florida! woot! And what can be better than this you may ask?... well I am going alone! Some would be saddened by this but in my case I am extremely excited that I don't have to be on a flight with my very annoying brother, who luckily visited my grandmother the week before. But don't get me wrong I do of course love my darling brother. :D
Here is my dilemma: I really don't want to go through baggage and stuff, which I also heard can be expensive, so I am only taking a carry on bag. Which means that I have to be selective in my clothes. But the real problem is my toiletry bag.
What is allowed!
A disposable razor?
my eye solution?
I'm so confused! If anyone could help that would be great!

Summary: from amazon
Prom fever has infected LA—especially Cindy’s two annoying stepsisters, and her overly Botoxed stepmother. Cindy seems to be the only one immune to it all. But her anti-prom letter in the school newspaper does more to turn Cindy into Queen of the Freaks than close the gap between the popular kids and the rest of the students. Everyone thinks she’s committed social suicide, except for her two best friends, the yoga goddess India and John Hughes–worshipping Malcolm, and shockingly, the most popular senior at Castle Heights High and Cindy’s crush, Adam Silver. Suddenly Cindy starts to think that maybe her social life could have a happily ever after. But there’s still the rest of the school to deal with. With a little bit of help from an unexpected source and a fabulous pair of heels, Cindy realizes that she still has a chance at a happily ever after.
Super Cute! Cindy Ella was a cute Cinderella story. If I could compare it to anything it would be the actual movie, a Cinderella story, with Hillary Duff in it. I found that the two stories were very familiar. Then again most Cinderella stories have the step sisters along with the stepmother, and then of course our prince charming.
Overall, I found that this book was a nice and light to read. The characters were done well, I especially love the attitude of Cindy. I also enjoyed the Instant Messaging conversations she would have. I recommend this to anyone looking for a fun and cute read.

Summary: from back of the book
Parker Stanhope has played soccer practically since she could walk. And now that she’s a high school junior, everything she’s worked for is finally coming together. She’s paid her dues on the field, and as an upperclassman, she’s a shoo-in for the varsity team. But that’s not what happens.
This year, Coach Hartley moved up every JV player but two—and one of those two was Parker. Now, she’s stuck with the freshmen, her friends are cutting her loose, and her love of the game is seriously beginning to fail. But Parker is determined to get her life back. She has to get on the varsity team, and she has the perfect plan. All she needs now is the right kind of coach.
Loved it! This book was nothing and everything that I expected. I thought this was going to be a great book, but what I didn't expect was how this story was going to play out. I thought prior to reading this that it was going to be about Parker falling for an assistant coach or something. What actually did happen in however, was even better than I expected.
This story was too cute! The characters, Parker and Tristan were amazing. I especially love that That Tristan was younger than Parker. I think that that they over exaggerated on the horrors of freshman part, but maybe in some schools this would be a horror to date a freshman.
Overall, This book was the perfect light summer read I was looking for. I highly recommend it.
