Cedar Point! woot :D


Hey everybody! I just got back from Cedar Point! woot. It was so much fun! To everybody who doesn't know where this is, it is in Ohio. The next day we went to soak city, it was a little rainy...but that just meant that we had short lines, or no lines at all :D

Has anyone else been to Cedar Point?

Strange Angels- Lili St. Crow


1st I would like to apologize if I upset or offended anyone in anyway with my latest post on Michael Jackson. I was simply stating my opinion on the issue.

My rating: 4/5
Summary:from amazon

Dru Anderson has what her grandmother called “the touch.” (Comes in handy when you’re traveling from town to town with your dad, hunting ghosts, suckers, wulfen, and the occasional zombie.)
Then her dad turns up dead—but still walking—and Dru knows she’s next. Even worse, she’s got two guys hungry for her affections, and they’re not about to let the fiercely independent Dru go it alone. Will Dru discover just how special she really is before coming face-to-fang with whatever—or whoever— is hunting her?

Review:

I was so very excited for this one! I was simply ecstatic when I learned that I was getting it. This book did live up to most of my expectations, but for some reason I wished the author made Dru, our main character, more...tough? maybe have more of a backbone? I expected Dru to be a Tomboy, which she was, but I expected her to be a little more stronger(mentally and physically) But I now realize that maybe this is what Lili wanted for Dru's first book and maybe she gets stronger in the following.

Overall, this story was very good and action packed. I was just a little disappointed in Dru, but besides this the book was amazing! I am really looking forward to the following books to come.

Michael Jacksons Dead?


So there you have it, our once great pop star is now dead. At the very early age of 5o. Listening to the radio this morning I was suprised to hear how everyone was saying how great of a guy he was?!?! I admit that his music was very good and he was a great part in our "musical history"? But you cannot justify this when he was such a sick man! He admitted to having boys sleep with him in his bed! And tells the world that everyone should do it. This is disturbing even if he claims that it was not sexual. Among other things that all suggest that this man was a nut and a creeper.

However I did notice that nobody actually said that they miss hime or that they were sad. Everything considered, yes, he was a great singer, no, he was not a great man.

Goodbye Michael Jackson

Trouble always comes in 3's

This week has been too much for me. One person can only stand so much emotional stress in such a short time period! Lets just say that this week has sucked. All my issues are car related, and I am beginning to think that not only does technology hate me but automobiles do as well!
My mom told me today that trouble always comes in 3's, and after this week I cannot agree with her more.

1. My moms van is hit and we have to pay 700 dollars to pay for the bumper. (Which is not that bad...but still.)

2. Later that day around 10:30 PM I myself get pulled over in my mothers van (I am only 16) by an older than dirt cop that has nothing better to do than make my life miserable. He says to me "the license plate on the vehicle was expired two days ago." Give me a brake! The plate says June and if I am not mistaken it is still JUNE! There was no reason to pull me over! Regardless I still was upset and very emotional, even more so when I realized I forgot my license at home and could not find the registration! "Mam. I am going to have to ask you to step out of the vehicle." This brought even more tears as I am standing on Main Street at late hours in front of his sparkly-lighted car. I was given "48 hours to correct it."

3. In my own vehicle a couple days later I was going to a softball game and hit a van while trying to leave. This also brought tears (yes, I am an emotional person, which was enhanced by me being on my period.), as the dent was very significant and huge! The size of a basketball to say the least. Somehow I got out of this by "being on private property" or something.

I am now traumatized and without a car as it has been temporarily taken away by my parents due to the latest event. However, they were very understanding and I am blessed that they were more concerned for my safety.

The Awakening- Kelly Armstrong

My rating: 4/5
Summary: from the back of the book

If you had met me a few weeks ago, you probably would have described me as an average teenage girl—someone normal. Now my life has changed forever and I’m as far away from normal as it gets. I'm a living science experiment—not only can I see ghosts, but I can raise the dead without even trying. Trust me, that is not a power you want to have. Ever. I’m running for my life with three of my supernatural friends and we have to find someone who can help us gain our freedom back before the Edison Group finds us first. Or die trying.

Review:

So I am officially in love with this series and am anxiously awaiting the third book The Reckoning! I love the whole paranormal theme of this book dealing with ghosts and such, as I have never read a book where there were people who talked to ghosts.

I was excited to read this and was not disappointed. There is a lot going on with Chloe's new found and explained power of being a necromancer, then we have Derek the werewolf, and Tori and Simon who are Sorcerers. These teenagers are faced with the Edison group who are definitely evil people who experiment and kill "troubled kids" such as themselves. We see a lot of "maybe" and "almost" relationships forming. Chloe who may have feelings for either or both of the brothers, Derek and Simon. Simon and Derek who both definitely maybe or kinda have feelings for Chloe... Then Tori who likes Simon, who doesn't return those feelings.

Overall, this story is a very good read. Once you start you can't stop.

Look alikes: Celeb version 2

Hey everybody! I have been busy of late with all of the new and wonderful excitements of SUMMER! I have been neglecting my blog and I am sad because of it. So I have decided to do another look alikes because I am too lazy to post a review right now. Here they are...





For the Season we have the blond on the left looking a whole lot like Hayden Panettiere.




For Strange Angels we have Megan Fox. Not the best pick but it was all I could find. Some of my friends thought I looked a little bit like the girl on this cover when I asked them for an actress. hehe not really but I kind of have the same hair as she does.

You Guys can judge. Its not a very good picture but... Oh well. :D Now that I am looking at it I really dont think I look like her.

The Summoning- Kelly Armstrong

My Rating:5/5
Summary: from amazon

My name is Chloe Saunders and my life will never be the same again.
All I wanted was to make friends, meet boys, and keep on being ordinary. I don't even know what that means anymore. It all started on the day that I saw my first ghost—and the ghost saw me.
Now there are ghosts everywhere and they won't leave me alone. To top it all off, I somehow got myself locked up in Lyle House, a "special home" for troubled teens. Yet the home isn't what it seems. Don't tell anyone, but I think there might be more to my housemates than meets the eye. The question is, whose side are they on? It's up to me to figure out the dangerous secrets behind Lyle House . . . before its skeletons come back to haunt me.

Review:

My new favorite series, Darkest Powers! This is the first of the series and I immediately fell in love with it. I mean who wouldn't love the girl who sees dead people? Chloe is the cute girl goes to Lyle house to only find out that she is not as crazy as she and the nurses are keep telling her. From the other kids in the house she learns a lot about her situation and others like hers.

The characters of course were done very well with the very talkative Liz, The mean and questionably crazy Tori, Sweet and trustworthy Simon, then big, quite, and smart Derek. Of course you have Chloe who is about 5 feet and looks like a kid ofton until she dies her hair with red streaks. She is always trying to do the right thing and is also very sweet.

Overall, a quick and very good read. Recommended to about everyone!
