Guess what... BOOKS!

>> Friday, January 8, 2010

Yeahh I got to go to the library yesterday! How wonderful. And I made this lovely amazingly organized list. Of books to read. I love lists. I like certain aspects of my life to be organized (unlike my bedroom, haha!).

Today I finished one of the books that I got from the library; Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.

What did I think? It was GOOD. Very good, actually. It won a bunch of awards, even was made into a platinum edition, and is even being used in some schools for english. And I think that it deserved it.

It was also made into a movie (same title) starring Kristen Stewart. I want to see it. Even though I don't really like Kristen Stewart, I think that she actually probably does a good job in this movie, since the part fits her. And I've read several reviews that said she did a good job. So maybe I'll see it someday...

I think I'll type up my book list, just for fun.

Here it is:

• before the title = on hold/hold request sent in
Bold = I have it right now.
All capital lettered title+bold = I've read it.

Megan's book list.

Eagle Strike by Anthony Horowitz
•Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
•Graceling by Kristen Cashore
SPEAK by Laurie Halse Anderson
•Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
•Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
•The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Oplympians #2) by Rick Riordan
The Wizard Heir by Cinda Williams Chima
Tunnels by Roderick Gordon/Brian Williams
The Last Thing I Remember by Andrew Klavan
Eragon by Christopher Paolini
(I got these next two; they weren't on my list, but they were by authors on my authors to check out list)
The Other Side of Darkness by Melody Carlson
Message in a Bottle by Nicholas Sparks

And there you have it! That's my list. It's always growing and changing, of course. Gosh, I love lists. I'm not sure why... but anyway, that's partly why I really like, because I'm using it to remember what books I want to read, and then I write them on my list! Heheh. I'm so silly.

So, yeah, if you've read any of those or want to read any of those, let me know what they're like or something! The nice thing about a few of those books is that they're 'classics' - meaning that my mom will let me read them for school. Haha!

Well I'd better go. I'm starving, but it's not quite dinner time yet... oh, whatever. I'm HUNGRY!

I discovered a pretty cool website the other day (actually learned about it from my friend Ivy). It's called goodreads, and it's basically a website about books! So everyone should check it out, and then add me as a friend if you join!! Here it is:

Tada! Well I'm hopefully gonna go on a walk or something now, because I'm being a total couch potato! Byebye!


I refuse to title this post "happy new year"

But it's true, it is now 2010! Insane, huh? I sure think so. It's
gonna be weird writing '10' instead of '09'. Who agrees??

Right now I'm sitting in the office. Listening to Kevin explain to
Nathan about this new Xmen gamecube game they're playing. How
interesting! ...haha. Not exactly. But I guess it's a LITTLE cool.

Okay, I want to be really honest on this blog. I've read some blogs
that are like really really honest, and I love that. So, time for a
bit of venting (not that I have all THAT much to vent about right now.
And my itouch has low battery).

Today I found someone's blog that looked interesting, so I skimmed
through a few of the posts. And I found one that I just could not
ignore. It was about infatuation, and how cruel it is. I simply had to
agree with everything he wrote, and I related to it so well. So I
commented on it (hope nobody thinks I'm a creeper, haha). It just
really shed light on the subject for me. Because most people probably
don't know this, (i hope that... Certain people... Aren't reading
this) but I kind of have a problem with infatuation. Not that I ever
let on, though. At least, I try my best to keep my feelings hidden
inside. But that's not always good. But is it better to keep to
yourself? That way you might have pain hidden inside, but would it be
better than showing everyone all your emotions all the time? I know
certain people do that. I don't, definitely not. It's just who I am.

So, like my novel says, I'm just trying to be my real self. Trying to
be honest. Maybe I won't hold back so much this year. But there'll
always be part of me hidden. You can count on that.

; )

Love always, Megan.

Megan... the one who loves cats, books, Jesus, the colors black and
green, the band Skillet, music in general, and so much more.
