New & Exciting

What a week! I hope everyone out there's doing alright. I'm just peachy! Anyhoo, I've been having a grand old time reading, and writing, and generally making a nuisance of myself. So what's new today? I've finally found a book worth reading!!! That's right, I've been completely out of material to read for almost a week.


So what did I find? Excellent Question. This is the answer 'The Guardians of Ga'Hoole'. Cool right? This book series is suprisingly older and has all things to do with owls. That's right, the main character of this story is a barn owl. (Don't laugh) I've only now had a chance to read the first three pages, and that means a lot for me to suddenly start writing a review about it. I'm so excited I can't stand it! If this book could get to my house (I'm ordering it off Amazon) any faster I'd die of happiness. The story revolves around Soren, he is an orphaned barn owl and is taken by a group and schooled. But before long he realizes this school has sinister plans of their own, to take over Owldom.
Soren and his rag-tag team set out to find the Tree of Ga'Hoole and the Guardians, known to come to ones aid in times of need. I'm so excited about reading this story after hearing so many wonderful reviews about it. I hope to tell you more soon.

What's even neater about this book is that it is fact a soon to be movie. If you haven't seen the commercial here it is:

Until next time...

How To Train Your - Wait... WHAT?!

Howdy Guys,

So I'm in the blogging mood, you'll have to excuse my typing. I'm in a hurry, got work in two minutes. But I have to talk about this because it was a great movie. Yes that's right, librarian's see movies too. Especially one's based on books. So what movie am I talking about .

How to Train Your Dragon Original Movie Poster
How to Train You Dragon.

This movie was great, I laughed so hard I was crying literally. It had a good lesson in it about the importance of listening to others and being open minded to new ideas. The story revolves around Hiccup a young Viking that wants to hunt dragons. When he brings down the unknown type of dragon that has never been seen, he can't kill it and instead befriends it.

From here the story is beautifully done, and I won't tell you any more. And yes, like all good stories I cried at the end. I'm like my uncle, we are both cry babies. lol.

Until later...

What Are Your Reading Quirks?

Alright, so I guess I'm in the blogging mood, but I'm just not wanting to review any books right now. Go figure. So let's talk about something that is slightly related to books, but not completely related.

What are you reading quirks? I've been reading a blog by Justine 'what-ever-her-name-is' (sorry can't remember her last name) and she had a guest blogger, Megan. (An author) and she started talking about her reading quirks. So why not find out all about yours.

Not until recently did I really pay attention to my quirks. Unfortunately my family and friends see them a lot and tell me I'm weird. (Like I don't know that!!!) So, what are your quirks? I have about six major ones.

1.) I grin like an evil genius when I read and everyone gives me the creeped out stare.

2.) I have a tendency to throw my book at a wall when something isn't going the way I want it to in the book. Then I pace the room huffing (angrily) about it and then go over the book, pick it up and read where I dropped it.

3.) I've got a bad habit of holding my breath during a tense situation.

4.) I bust out laughing when it's funny (which scares everyone around me because of it's spontaneous nature) and cry when a character dies. (Then I'm depressed for a week and can't stop thinking about the character.) I scream at the characters when their being idiots. (No duh! DON'T GO INTO THAT ROOM YOU IDIOT! THERE'S A MURDERER IN THERE!!!)

5.) I have to read the book in one sitting. No matter what, even if it takes me all night. (Meaning from 10 p.m. - 7:00a.m.) (Now you know why I'm the exhausted librarian. hahaha!!!)

6.) I never, ever, no matter what read the last page. Even if I'm dying to know the ending. IT IS TABOO!

So now you know mine, I'd love to know yours. Until next time...

New Design

Howdy Guys,

So what do you think? Like? I hope so, because this is the new look of my blogger. I've gone into a new look, getting the feel of it right now, but so far so good. ^_^

I don't have any books for you today. So I'll leave you with these hilarious pictures I found. Laugh your guts out:

The Realities

Okay, back and ready for action. This past week has been an interesting one, got to tell you, never seen so many kids. Anyhoo, back on subject lets talk books, okay you guys out there, I would love your comments on any of my books. Call it desperation, are any of my book reviews worth reading. (Hope so.)

So without further a-do, I bring you 'The Journal of Curious Letters' by James Dashner. Now he is really a very new author, I came across him by accident really. Let's say Amazon doesn't give the best feel about books. So I wondered the shelves of the book store, and read one of his books. To put it simply, James Dashner is an excellent writer. I can't really compare him to anyone, (maybe J.P. but more intriguing).

You're probably saying, O-KAY. So back on point, 'The Journal of Curious Letters'. Very, very cool read. If you like a lot of mystery then you will love this book. The series of books is called 'The 13th Reality'. Pretty cool huh.

To keep it short and simple (500 page book here) lets begin with main characters. Tick, or his real name is Atticus, he lives a pretty easy life, goes to school, deals with bullies, has a great family. But then something comes in the mail to him all the way from Alaska. He doesn't know anyone in Alaska, but he opens the letter anyway. Inside is a riddle that must be solved, and from the mysterious M.G. there will be twelve other clues. But not just that, these clues will mean the saving of lives, hundreds, maybe thousands if he takes it on. If he decides not to, he must burn the letters and go on about his life.

Well Tick isn't one to give up and quit, so he takes it on. In no time his life is swept away by mysterious happenings, including a Gnat Rat, and many other crazy things. Then comes Mothball and Rutger. (Both hilarious scatterbrains) With each letter the series of events become more dire and he realizes he isn't alone in this.

How many other children out there are going through the same thing? And what are these Realities?

This book is a beautifully written book, and didn't feel as long as how many pages it held. (Good sign for a book, trying reading Moby Dick and not think it's a bore.) I really enjoy Tick's constant worries and fears for his life and that of his family. I am looking forward to reading the next in this series. Until next time...

An Absolutely Brillant Read.

Hey guys,

Long time, been a crazy couple of weeks. So I thought it was time to talk about books again. BWAHAHAHA!!! One of my favorite subjects, as everyone knows. So what's going to be chosen today.... hmmmm. I've been jumping around with so many books, I can't seem to keep myself on track, but lets see which book today...


Now this book, Fang by James Patterson was A-MA-ZING. Finally I can say that Mr. Patterson has put the series back on track. I bought the book yesterday, and read it in one sitting. As all of his books are, you are sucked in from the first sentence. If you haven't read this series, then lets keep it simple. Maximum Ride is the main character, and she's sarcastic and witty. Then there's the Flock, consisting of, Fang, her right-wing man, Iggy, bomb explosives expert, Nudge, the human radio, Gazzy, the bomb (hahaha) and Angel, the mind reader and a few others Total, and Akila. (Other time).

Max is supposed to save the world, and now she is on a mission in Africa to help the hungry. But that's when things go from stranger then fiction, to well... strangest. There she meets Dylan another avian-human experiment and the doctor that created him. (Dr. Cleaver) You'll understand when you read why I call him that. Dylan is smitten with Max, but there's one problem, Fang and Max are twitter-patted with one another. So this is it: Max + Fang + Dylan = WHAT?!?

Things start getting tense with the Flock, and an ultimate decision is made when Max finds out from Angel that, 'Fang will be the first to die... and soon...'

All I can say is that I've never screamed, and cried so much. These characters are endearing and they feel so real you almost feel you could reach out and touch them, talk to them. I've never been so impressed in a book series in all my days of book reading. I'm dying for the next book, knowing there is and always will be a sequel to a book that leaves you in a cliff hanger.

So the question is... what does 'HE' know?...

If you read the book, you will understand what that means. Until next time...
