A Season Of Eden


(sorry it's small, that's the only picture I could find)

Title: A Season Of Eden
Author: J M Warwick
Amazon Summary: He's my teacher. I shouldn't be alone with him. But I can't help that he's irresistible. I let the door silently close at my back. He stared at me, and a taut quiet stretched between us. "I like hearing you play," I said, moving toward him. He turned, in sync with my slow approach. He looked up at me but didn't say anything. I rested my clammy hand on the cold, slick body of the baby grand. "May I?" The muscles in his throat shifted, then he swallowed. "Eden." My knees weakened, like a soft tickling kiss had just been blown against the backs of them. "Is it okay?" I asked. His gaze held mine like two hands joined. He understood what I was really asking. "Let me stay," I said. "Please." "You're going to get me in trouble," he said.

I'm kind of ill right now, so I don't really feel like doing a long review so I'll just say that I liked it. I really like James' character and Eden's and the only part of the book that I didn't like was where it ended, I would've liked it to continue past the point it left off at. :)

Later.

American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis

I just got back from two weeks' holiday, and that was really the only reason I chose to read this book- I wanted to read something new for the book challenge, and it looked more interesting than Portrait of a Bleeding Heart. I assumed, seeing as it is called, after all, American Psycho, some of the content would be a bit shocking.

Jesus Christ. It was an awful book. I am not shocked easily. I read Wicked Beyond Belief with nary a flinch, I watched Sweeney Todd and complained that it wasn't as gory as I had expected. But this book- not only did I both flinch and turn away from some parts, the grisly, graphic description of one of the murders made me gag. It was truly disgusting.
The book is filled with graphic murders and tortures, sex, and swearing, but it's written in a very stream-of-consciousness sort of way. It's probably supposed to give a sense of Bateman's psychoticness, and the feeling of this group of boring people with nothing in their lives, but it just made the book vaguely boring. The long, rambling chapters on different musical groups annoyed me, just because they had nothing to do with the story or anything- they were just there.

To summarise, the book follows the life of Patrick Bateman in incredible detail. Bateman is a rapist, murderer and psychopath. He is exactly the same as everyone else in his mundane life in Manhattan- yet in his spare time, he brutally slays and mutilates hundreds of women, blinds homeless men because he can, takes cocaine and is a complete nutcase.
Reading American Psycho has changed my opinion on things- I will now be forever suspicious of charming yuppies, and the whole "stranger-danger" thing is really forward in my mind now.

The book was well-written, but it was incredibly, incredibly shocking. It made me wonder how the writer actually managed to think up such things- it was that awful. In a weird way, it's a good book, but I don't know many people who could read it.

I wouldn't say that I enjoyed the book, but I didn't dislike either. As far as recommendation goes, if you don't like your murders gory and your sex scenes explicit, this book is most definitely not for you. Even people like me, who have strong stomachs and can deal with most stuff like this, I guarantee you, you will be horrified.
It's the sort of book I would say that you should read if you're at the library and you pass it, but I wouldn't say you should rush out and try and find it.

Naomi & Ely's No Kiss List


Title: Naomi & Ely's No Kiss List Author(s): Rachel Cohn & David Levithan Summary: NYU freshmen Naomi and Ely have been BFF's since the cradle. Their friendship has even survived an affair between Naomi's dad and one of Ely's moms. But all that changes when Ely impetuously kisses Bruce, Naomi's boyfriend. When Bruce decides he wants to be with Ely, Naomi is forced to confront the romantic feelings she's always had for her best friend, despite their shared preference for boys.

I really like this book, it was a lot like Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist but the characters were noticibly different and there were a lot more of them. I think there was actually about 8 different POVS in the book (I loved the POV's of both Robin's, those two were awesome).

I love the way Rachel and David write, it's really catchy and there's a lot of one liners that'll just make you laugh and then there is really cute stuff (guy-Robin: "I am so yours, it's not even funny") and bits that'll make you think.

It's kind of cool that Norah from Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist kind of has a cameo in the book too, via graffiti on a bathroom stall.

So, yeah, this review hasn't been very long but to sum up: Loved it, it's awesome. You should read it (especially if you liked Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist).

I think the only bad part of the whole book --and it's not even bad, it's just something that annoyed me a little-- was that in Naomi's POV's, sometimes little pictures/icons were used in place of words... which is kind of cool, but also annoying because it sort of interrupts the reading, the words can't just flow if they're interrupted by pictures.

Later.

P.s. OOOH! While looking for pictures on Google for the cover, I found out that it's being made into a movie and (I think) Hayden Panettiere will be playing Naomi... she's totally not who I pictured as Naomi (I pictured Naomi having long brown hair and being much taller and look more... tough? Not manly tough, but sort of like Megan Fox kind of tough looking, if that makes sense? But anyway, I like Hayden, so it'll be interesting to see... if it's even true about her being cast)

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova


I KNOW, RIGHT? FINALLY!

Review from Amazon..

Some stories can be told again in endlessly different ways. Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian combines a search for the historical Dracula with a profound sense that Stoker got some things right--that the late Mediaeval tyrant kills among us yet, undead and dangerous. From Stoker, she also takes a sense that the supernatural seems more real when embedded in documentary evidence.

Three generations search for Dracula's resting place, and their stories are nested within each other, so that we know that at least two quests ended badly. Kostova rations her thrills very carefully so that we jump out of our chair at quite slight surprises, especially when we have come to expect buckets of blood and loud bangs. She also has a profound and well-communicated sense of place and period, so that the book is equally at home in 1930s Rumania, Cold War Budapest and 1970s Oxford. Kostova is particularly good on the sights and sounds of remote country places and the taste of real peasant food--this sensuous realism does not always go with her other skill, the creation of imagined documents and folksongs that feel as real and true as what might be actual.

This is a quietly good book rather than a spectacular d├ębut, with some uncomfortable twists in its tail; her heroine-narrators are, and perhaps remain, in the most serious of jeopardies.



Okay, now my review...

As I'm one for vampire stories since accidentally stumbling on Twilight - though they're very different styles - I asked for The Historian for Christmas. And now, after a hell of a long time, I've read it.
Set back a few decades, the Historian's language and the vast amount of description was hard to understand at times; hard facts were being thrown at you constantly in a way that began to get tiring after hearing "Vlad Dracula fought in blablabla in 1469" for the sixth time, especially as I was reading at night.
The story is told in three parts - by the daughter whose name I have either forgotten or was never told, Professor Rossi's letters and then by the girl's father, partially through her reading his letters, and partially through him telling her the stories while they're on holiday.
People were constantly disappearing during the novel, whether it be in stories or in the narrator's present time. I found myself becoming interested more in the budding romances than the 'constant threat of Dracula', even though this was the centre theme of the book. I did, however, enjoy anticipating the actions of Dracula's minions, even though Dracula himself was a long time coming!
It might have been the fact I was reading by night, but I became easily bored and aggravated by the twisting, yet often predictable plot. By the middle of the book, the only reason I wasn't putting it down was so that I could put it on my 50 books list.
The end of the story made up for the rest's disappointment. For once, I was actually surprised, and I was pretty pleased with the ending...until the epilogue. Which was confusing, and left me very irritated because SHE DOESN'T EXPLAIN WHAT THE HELL IS IN THE CORNER OF THE DAMN BOOK.
Yes, so...it's a book to read, but I won't rave about it. Not a bit.

I'm reading Dan Brown's Angels and Demons next, hopefully that'll be a bit better!

Silver is for Secrets by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Title: Silver is for Secrets
Author: Laurie Faria Stolarz
Summary:
After two years of prophetic nightmares, outwitting stalkers, and saving lives (including her own), Stacey's memories of boarding school aren't all rosy. This summer, Stacey and her closest friends are looking forward to the perfect vacation before they start college: six good friends, a cottage on the beach, and no parents. Just sun, surf, and sand. It's perfect – until the nightmares return. But this time they're not about one of her friends. They're about Clara, the girl staying in another beach cottage. The dreams are about Clara's death, but Stacey's having a hard time getting Clara to stop chasing guys – including those who already have girlfriends – long enough to find out who's stalking her. Stacey can't just stand by and watch Clara die, but the meaning of her dreams isn't always clear. This time, they didn't warn her about the horrific consequences – a tragedy far beyond her worst nightmares that will haunt her for the rest of her life.

It was great, I have to admit.
I highly recommend these two books for you to read. I am on my 3rd challenge book. It's called "Peeps". You've probably heard of it. Anyways. I need to stop typing because my body is achy. Ech.


Peace, Love, Twilight.

Heavy Metal and You by Christopher Krovatin



Finished this in one sitting, a tell-tale sign of a good book.

Title: Heavy Metal and You
Author: Christopher Krovatin
Summary: "(from some library site) In Heavy Metal and You, by Christopher Krovatin, Sam, a teenage boy, is into heavy metal music and partying with his friends. His life seems to be going along fine, and then he meets Melissa. Sam refers to her as a “goddess,” “amazing,” “beautiful,” incredible,” and on and on. He is truly in love and wants to spend as much time as possible with her. Meanwhile, his friends are feeling neglected and are not very enthusiastic about Sam’s relationship with Melissa.

Then…Melissa wants Sam to change. She doesn't like his heavy metal music, his friends, and his partying. She wants him to go “straightedge,” that means no drinking or smoking. Will Sam change for the girl of his dreams? Find out if the love between Sam and Melissa will survive…"

I loved this. Not only is it rich with awesome music,it's also relateable. The story is real. It's not something all fluffy and gloss-over-it. The emotions are so powerful...I can't even describe it.

My favorite character is Sam. I can sympathize and relate to him. Melissa is actually one of my least favorite characters.

This book is basically too amazing to describe. Just go find it and enjoy. :D

(BTW, I need more book suggestions. Right now I'm on my tenth, Looking For Alaska, but that's the last one I have. HELP?!)

The Boys Next Door by Jennifer Echols



Title: The Boys Next Door
Author: Jennifer Echols
Summary: Lori lives for summertime on the lake. She spends all season wakeboarding, swimming, and hanging with her friends -- including the two hotties in the house next door. With the Vader brothers, Lori's always been one of the guys.

But while Lori and the "baby" brother, Adam, are inseparable friends, she can't deny a secret crush on Sean, the older Vader boy. This year Sean's been paying Lori a lot of attention, and not in a brotherly way.

But just as Lori decides to prove to Sean she's girlfriend material, she realizes that her role as girl friend to Adam may be even more important. And by trying so hard for the perfect summer romance, she could be going way overboard....

I so love chick lit books like this, it was really good -- I like books where the characters are flawed, it makes them more real, but you can still like them anyway. Like, Adam isn't perfect and there are times when you just want to shake some sense in to Lori and tell her she's after the wrong brother but I like her character, it's fun being inside her head, I love the way Jennifer Echols writes.

Adam is really adorable, I love that his character can be really sweet and sensitive while still appearing very bad ass and sexy at the same time. Sean is a total ass, but it's hard to hate him at times. Lori's dad cracks me up too. And I love that Lori is a sporty tomboy who is trying to be girly at times, like it's hilarious when she'll react to something then remember she's trying to appear more like a girl so she'll back track and her reaction is really funny. :)

This has been a terrible review, my head feels all weird -- but basically, the book is good, it's one of those books that leaves you smiling.

Not that anyone cares, but I pictured this guy as Adam:


And this guy as Sean:


This is the 3rd book I've read for the 50 book thing (I should so be further than 4 books by now, but I've been procrastinating a lot. As usual) I've decided that I might not review EVERY book out of the 50 that I read, just the ones I recommend or have something I want to say about (whether it be negative or positive). Which is why I'm not reviewing Mistletoe, the book of 4 short stories I read... it wasn't bad, it wasn't amazing either, it was just okay.

Later.

Right Behind You by Gail Giles.



I read this book a few days ago.

What drew me to it was the lighter on the cover.

Title: Right Behind You
Author: Gail Giles
Summary: (From Amazon!) Grade 8 Up—After setting his seven-year-old neighbor in Alaska on fire, Kip McFarland spends four years in a facility for violent juvenile offenders. When he is released at the age of 14, he, his father, and his new stepmother move to Indiana, with new names. For a while, Wade/Kip enjoys a normal life. Eventually, however, despite the warnings of his therapist, he sabotages his happiness in a drunken fit of rage. After he reveals his identity, the town turns on him and his family. Now, a coastal Texas town is their final shot at starting over. The cozy community appears to be a perfect haven, but Wade feels compelled to reveal his past to Sam, the beautiful and mysterious neighbor who is winning his heart—and has a story of her own. Will she still accept him once she finds out he is a murderer?

The story has so much to it. Really, like Go Ask Alice, it gives you an inside look into being institutionalized. It also includes drugs and alcohol, moving to a new town, teenage hormones, getting bullied and is generally a book full of problems people can relate to.

(Except the murdering a kid at nine. I mean, maybe someone has done it, but I sure haven't.)

Most of the book, Kip feels overwhelmed and guilty. To him, he doesn't deserve a happy ending after murdering someone.

(And it was actually an accident. Kip had problems.)

I don't really like his therapists, except the last one he has. I would've reacted just like him, probably, had it been me.

Overall, a very very very good read. So go read it. Now.

(BTW, for anyone who has read Paper Towns, I let my teacher borrow it because I wanted her to read it. John Green is boss. I've reserved Looking For Alaska. :D)

The Other Shepards by Adele Griffin.



Finished this in one day XD

Basically, the story is about a family- The Shepards. Three of them have died, a drunk driving accident, and the two new children, Holland and Geneva, are left basically to themselves.

(I dont blame the parents. Having your children die must be pretty tough.)

The characters are very distinct. There's Holland, the more responsible, day dreaming indulgent, over-thinking big sister. And then there's Geneva, who has all these quirks about her, that you just must read because i can not explain them.

It's a short book, really. It's one of those books that just moves along and doesnt really have a climax.

It is a great book. I recommend.

(Next up- Right Behind You by Gail Giles.)

The Clique Series by Lisi Harrison

We've all seen our own cliques when we went to school (or, are still going to school). We know that they come in all forms: Mean, well-dressed, nice, pretty, rich. This book is about a group of girls at a private school who are rich, well-dressed, popular, and mean (in certain cases.)

Title: The Clique
Author: Lisi Harrison
Summary: (Stolen from some website):

The Clique is a petty story about four best friends: Massie, being the leader; Dylan; Alicia; and Kristen. These girls are trying to survive the seventh grade, and by doing it in style. These four best friends are extremely snobby and are descendants from ridiculously wealthy families. They have nothing but the best designer clothes and makeup and live in the most lavish mansions. They are treated like mini adults and think that they have all the power and control in the world, even though they are just barely teenagers.

By being given everything they desire, they have come to expect that same treatment everywhere they go. Looking good is their job, and disrespecting others who are less fortunate is their hobby. Things get a little crazy for the leader Massie, when an old friend of her father’s shows up with his wife and two children who are to stay in their pool house until they get their feet back on the ground. One child is named Claire and she happens to be Massie’s age. Massie refuses to accept the poor and unfashionable Claire. Wearing overalls and Keds, Massie thinks Claire is a walking advertisement for Target unlike her, who wouldn’t be caught dead in that store. There is no way that Massie would ever be seen with her at school or even inside her own house.

Massie is forced to deal with Claire on a daily basis and continues to treat her like dirt. Massie and her three best friends constantly gang up on Claire and are always making her look like a fool. Claire is tired of Massie’s evil ways but just desperately wants to fit in with her group. She comes up with a plan to accomplish that. She sneaks into Massie’s room at night while she is out walking her dog. Claire gets on her instant messaging and poses as Massie while talking to her friends. She tells them that she now likes Claire, and wants her part of the group. This lie along with many others turns the friendship of these girls into turmoil. Kristen, Dylan, and Alicia eventually turn against Massie and make Claire their new leader.

Massie finally gets what she deserves, until the plan backfires. Massie and her friends discover the truth about Claire and things go back to normal. Claire realizes that these girls aren’t worth fighting for and that she would be much better off without their fake friendship. This is a story about the survival in the social world and how some girls would do anything to fit in.

Mm. Yeah I stole that because I didn't really know how to give you a summery. :)

These books were my very first addiction, truly, that I had and I recommend these books to teens just looking for something good to read. This book deals with the art of fitting in and trying to be like everyone else. Claire is the new girl, the one who doesn't dress all fancy and the one who (-gasp-) Likes eating candy! She really wants to fit in with Massie and her clique but she can't because she's a total LBR.

I think we all have a Massie and Claire side to us.

Our Massie side loves shopping, great outfits, and keeps up with all the celebrity gossip we can find. That side also loves coffee drinks and not having to do any chores.

Our Claire side has annoying siblings, doesn't really care that much about clothing, and absoloutley craves sugar! :)

We aren't perfect. Nobody is. We all have an angel side and a devil side to us. We can be sweet and innocent and very big kiss-ups one minute, and the next we're sabotaging other girls' clothes and personal items. Not that I've ever done that. -adjusts halo-

This book series is perfect for anyone who loves a good teen drama; I came across this series at a school book fair and I was immediately interested just by the cover! I bought the third book in the series and read it. I wanted to buy the other books quickly so I could read those as well.

:) Happy Reading!

Cindy Ella by Robin Palmer.





Title: Cindy Ella
Author: Robin Palmer
Summary (stolen from Amazon as always): 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.

This book was... okay. It wasn't great, I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either and it's unlikely to be one I'd ever feel the urge to reread.

It's a total chick lit book, but it's not the good kind that leaves you with that kind of girly happy feeling when you finish reading it -- it's just like "Well, okay then" then you forget about it.

Cindy's character is kind of annoying at times, sort of like it's supposed to appear that she's awesome and down to earth and all that just because she isn't one of the "popular" people but it sometimes just comes across like she's really judgemental and she's always spouting the opinions of people she admires as if they were her own, maybe she does agree with them but sometimes it's as if she's saying she agree just because she wants to come across a certain way.

All the stuff with her therapist was annoying, she was kind of immature in a bad way and it seriously bugged me that after meeting a guy once she decided that he was her soulmate but at the same time she liked someone else too... it was just, it sort of made teenage crushes seem really immature (like I know when I was 15 I wasn't as immature about crushes as that).

Anyway, her character isn't likable some of the time, although she does have her moments.

The text talk in the IM conversations bugged me, but I guess it's just because that's one of my pet peeves and I think it makes someone who is supposed to be smart appear to be a total dumb ass when they're all "ur @ no1 lolz" eugh.

Adam was kind of cute, I liked his character and I loved Cindy's two best friends India and Malcolm. Malcolm totally reminded me of Roo at times. Like this part:
"Malcolm, you think every cute boy is gay or at least seriously confused!" I shrieked.
I could tell by the way his eyes were narrowing that he was about to start channeling his inner diva. He started huffing and puffing, tsking, and if he had had long hair, he definitely would've flipped it.

That is just like the conversations me and Roo have when we're arguing over boys. I kid you not, right down to the "tsking" and me complaining that he's always announcing hot guys are gay.

The plot was predictable -- like, long before anything was revealed it was blatantly obvious what was going to happen and the plot wasn't really original (it was actually a lot like A Cinderella Story in a lot of ways, except the characters were different and instead of going to the ball, Cindy is all "antiprom").

Anyway... I'd give this 2.5/5. It was entertaining, it had it's funny moments, it has funny characters and it didn't suck completely but it wasn't very good or original.

Now that I've gotten that out of the way I can start on my 50 book challenge thing. I'm not sure what I'll be reading next, I'll probably just pick one at random and I'm going to add the books I'm reading to the sidebar in my blog to keep track of them.

The Bar Code Tattoo

I've read this book before; it's been about a year, but it always seems to haunt me just a bit. The first time I read this book, I was...affected by it just a little bit. It made me think.

Title: The Bar Code Tattoo
Author: Suzanne Weyn
Summary: It's 2025, and the thing to do on your 17th birthday is to get a bar code tattoo, which is used for everything from driver's licenses to shopping. Kayla, almost 17, resists because she hates the idea of being labeled. Then the tattoos begin to drive people to commit suicide, Kayla's father among them, and she soon finds out that the markings contain detailed information about their bearers, including their genetic code. When the government, controlled by a corporation called Global-1, makes the tattoo mandatory, Kayla joins a teen resistance movement and falls for a gorgeous guy, unaware that he's a double agent. She discovers she has some psychic ability and has confusing visions of future events. Forced to run away after being implicated in her mother's accidental death, she eventually joins other resisters hiding in the Adirondack Mountains, finds romance with an old friend, and learns to harness her psychic powers to fight Global-1 and fulfill her visions.

Yeah that was copied from Amazon.com but it gives the description well enough, I think. This book is a great read for all ages, because the events in this book effect everybody. Not just teens, but adults as well.

Here's the back-of-the-book description: The bar code tattoo. Everybody's getting it. It will make your life easier, they say. It will hook you in. It will become your identity. But what if you say no? What if you don't want to become a code? For Kayla, this one choice changes everything. She becomes an outcast in her high school. Dangerous things happen to her family. There's no option but to run.....for her life.

The idea of having to get one of these tattoos is beyond scary. If it can make you commit suicide, would you want one? Sure, it holds your drivers license information, your bank account information, etc. But it would make me go crazy, having that...thing on my arm forever. I know it's useful and it's, after all, mandatory, but I wouldn't want something that basically controls everything I do. It's just too much.

I do have a few favorite parts, actually. One of them is when she finds out her so-called boyfriend, Zekeal, is a traitor and is planning to turn her in. Here's a bit of how she finds out: This is an e-mail she reads off of his computer:

To: Agent ZM
From: Agent CHTG --Tattoo Generation

Congratulations on your excellent work. Your request to remain uncoded for an additional two months has been granted. Your connection to Decode has yielded valuable information. We appreciate you sending candidate Harris as a trainee. She is a very promising young agent. We look forward to meeting the next candidate that you spoke about at our last session. We are confident that Ms. Reed will also be an asset to our group. Thank you for your most recent dispatch. Please make contact again at the same time tomorrow as per our usual schedule.
Thanks again to all your fine service to Tattoo Generation,

CHTG

How would you feel, if the one you loved, the one you trusted, was going to betray you? I, for one, would feel abosluotley sick and angry.

It seems, in Kayla's world, you don't know who to trust anymore.

Happy reading!

P.S: If you have any book suggestion, any genre will do, please tell me. :)

Go Ask Alice



I just finished Go Ask Alice today. Literally just minutes ago. So of course I jump onto the computer to convince you all to read it :)

Alright. The Basics:
Title: Go Ask Alice
Author: Anonymous. (This book was actually a diary. Therefore the anonymous-author-ness.)
Summary: (From the back cover of the book)
"January 24th
After you've had it, there isn't even life without drugs."

It started when she was served a soft drink laced with LSD in a dangerous party game. Within months, she was hooked, trapped in a downward spiral that took her from her comfortable home and loving family to the mean streets of an unforgiving city. It was a journey that would rob her off her innocence, her youth-and ultimately her life.

At times I found Go Ask Alice very hard to read because the sentences are long and rambly and entirely different from what I'm used to.

(But, what can you expect? Does anyone but me actually use proper grammar in their diaries?)

I liked the story very much, though at times things happened and I got confused because they weren't explained until at least three entries later.

(SPOILER!s are in black. highlight to read.)

For me, one of my favorite entries were reading what it was like for the diary's owner to be under the influence. The descriptions were amazing.

But, for example, I got very confused when suddenly our main girl was locked in a hospital all bloodied and ruined, and I didn't get it until it was explained, and even then there are things that I could poke holes through, like...who put the acid in the peanuts that made her go all crazy?

I was more confused because of the fact that our main girl was doing so well. Drug-free, happy and all that and then- BOOM! Straight to the hospital and then the insane asylum.

The characters in the book were all very..lively? I guess. Almost all of them were involved in the drug game, and therefore the character was probably a twisted version of itself through the manipulation of drugs. But viewing everything through the main girl's eyes makes it all the more real

Overall, a very good book. Get it and read it you fools! (Also, if you like the diary kind of things, read "It happened to Nancy" as well.)

Now, onto other business:

I'm going book shopping soon. I need recommendations for things you think I should read.

I like every genre :)

xoxo
