Reejecttion by Daniel Clausen

            I have not finished this short story yet, but it is very interesting. I think that this was a self published book, which I don't normally read self published books, but  I decided to give this one a try. I highly enjoy his writing style. It sounds like he is talking to the read. The conversation tone, I would say, takes the cake. I haven't read many things with conversational tones and have that last quite a bit of what I have read. I love it.
            Reejecttion is about rejection. There are some parts of this book that I am not fond of. For example, in parts where he is reviewing a book that I haven't read I can't relate to that part. I don't have any connection for that part of that book.
           Would I suggest this book from the half of the book that I have already read? 
           I would recommend that you read Reejecttion. I would recommend that if you an aspiring writer to read this, but honestly everyone faces rejection, so this would benefit anyone. 
            Please note that this author has many free works that you can find. I found him on Library Thing. You can create an account and look him up there. He is also on goodreads. Please check him out!

Book Mail Excitement

I am so excited to announce that sometime soon I am getting my first book mail. For a high school student with no job it can be trying at times to afford books when I would like a new one. SO I am ecstatic that I am getting 6 books sent to me from The Book Outlet. Granted one of the books is the last book in a trilogy I have yet to read, or own the first two. I couldn't pass the opportunity to get it at a cheap price and it be a hardcover. AMAZING! Also, ladies and gentlemen I have started a YouTube account for the book world, book tube, and I have to set it up so you can find me tomorrow, but it will be up soon for YOU! I hope you watch it! 

Question of the day:
What are you currently reading?

My answer:
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets! It's my first time reading them... I know! How could I have NOT read them yet?!?! ... Im not sure either.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

             To all the fangirls of anything,

READ THIS BOOK. This is the ultimate fangirl book. It's about a fangirl. Not just any fangirl. Cath is THE fangirl. She writes fanfiction with over 20,000 hits a day/ post. Anywho, fangirl is about Cath's first year at college. We get to take a peak into the life of the ultimate fangirl. Who she loves, what she likes, what she dislikes, and how she deals with things. Everyone deals with things differently. I am a fangirl, but I lead a different life than Cath. We have different situations and there is not one things that I absolutely love.
             I suggest this book to everyone. This is an AMAZING book! Granted this book may not be for everybody, but it is for  people who read The Fault in Our Stars or anything by Sarah Dessen. Things by Stephanie Perkins. However amazing I think this book is, it is NOT for young children. I would recommend this book for people 13 -14 and older. You can get the book HERE at the Book depository website. Please check out the book and add this book to your shelves.

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

            I was amazed by the "Uglies" by Scott Westerfeld. Tally is a 15 almost 16 year old girl. In this society they undergo a surgery when they are 16 that makes them "pretty". They tell children beginning at a small age that they cannot be pretty until they go through with the surgery. I find that cruel.They are children and children need love and acceptance for who they are. Each child/person is beautiful in their own way. Aside from personal beliefs and back to the book, Shay Tally's new friend runs away. The special circumstances portion of the government gives her a choice. Betray and reveal Shay or be ugly forever...
            One thing I absolutely love that Scott does is make Tally feel beautiful without turning pretty. That is something many people can relate to. Accepting who they are or loving themselves and their body. Loving how you look without being vain. I would definitely recommend this book to all. If you liked "The Hunger Games," or "Divergent," then you would love "The Uglies."
            You can get it HERE to get your copy of "Uglies" by Scott Westerfeld on the Book Depository. The website offers great deals on all the latest books. I hope you love it. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series!

May 2015 Book Haul/ June TBR

If you read my last post, then you might know that I went to the Dallas RT (Romantic Times) convention. All of my books were scored at that time. I spent all of my money there! That wasn't too much, but still I had a great time and I love being able to get so many books. Here is the pic of the books I scored this month:


Since I went to the RT Convention, I now have plenty of amazing books to read. This will also be my June TBR pile. I might read "The Book Thief" by Mark Zuzak too.

What books are you reading currently?
I'm reading "The Uglies" by Scott Westerfeld
