Wow, I haven't posted here in a long time. And I'm sorry for that. I just got wrapped up in doing things the last two weeks before going away to college. I spent all this last week packing and I leave for my new home on Saturday. Plus I've been trying to hang out with my friends a little before I go, since I probably won't see them until Christmas. It's been a little crazy. But I have been reading and I wanted to post the book reviews for you.

The first book is Geek Magnet by Kieran Scott. This book is about a girl who attracts these really geeky and sometimes obnoxious guys. They all flock to her and want to be her friend or even more. The girl KJ is the stage manager for the show Grease at her high school and the book is broken up into acts. It's a really fun book. Review is under the cut and beware of spoilers

Next I read Kitty Goes to Washington. This is the sequel to Kitty and the Midnight Hour which I reviewed a little while ago. In this one, Kitty is brought to Washington DC to speak to a committee about the existence of paranormal creatures. She meets new people and learns bit about how a pack doesn't have to be like the one she had before. She also has another run-in with Smith, the nut-job who boasts a cure. Review is under the cut. Beware the spoilers

Last book is I Was A Non-Blonde Cheerleader by Kieran Scott. This book is about a girl named Annisa who moves from New Jersey to Florida when her dad gets a new job. Everyone at her new school is blonde, even those who wouldn't naturally be blonde. Oh, and they all hate her for various reasons. So when se tries out for the cheerleading team, can it only lead to disaster? Review under the cut, but no spoilers here.

I spent yesterday at my mom's friend's house while mom and her friend scrapbooked. Now I got a lot of reading and writing done, but there was also a small child who kept interrupting me. I think I have a small child beacon that draws them to me when all I want is to be left alone. She kept trying to get me to scrapbook (which I don't do because I suck at it) and she would sit next to me and read. But she had to read out loud and then show me stuff. And it didn't work to pretend I was engrossed in my book because she would just repeat it over and over until I paid attention. I was so glad when the girl's mom finally came to take her home.
But I did get to finish one book: The Good, The Bad and the Undead by Kim Harrison. This is the second book in Kim Harrison's Hollows series. And I have to say, I'm really enjoying the series so far. I think I'll ask for the set for Christmas. This book was about Rachel Morgan, former I.S. runner, tracking down a serial killer who was hunting ley line witches. For this case, she's teamed up with the FIB, who've hired her as a consultant, and she's working with this guy Glenn who is one of the few humans not intimidated by the fact that Rachel's a witch. It's a really good book. Review is under the cut and beware the spoilers.

Haven't posted in a couple days, even though I finished this book a little while ago. It was my sister's birthday today and we had her party last Saturday. It was a lot of fun. We did a scavenger hunt and this game where you had to unfurl a frozen tee shirt first. Plus the cake was cool. We made it with white cake mix and food coloring so it was rainbow. I have to say though, I'm getting tired of my sister making me feel like crap because I can't eat certain foods or get sick if I eat too much. Today I went to look for the leftover ice-cream, only to discover it's gone. Mom, Meg, and Meg's friend had finished it off. I was disappointed so I said, "Oh, I didn't get any." Meg said, "Well you should have had some at the party" knowing full well that I'd already had macaroni salad, diet coke, and cake. If I pushed it, I was going to be sick. The digs are eventually going to push me over the edge I've been slowly approaching due to my, now more restrictive, diet. I just have to make it another twenty days though, thirteen of which she'll be in school and I won't have to deal with her until mid-afternoon.
Anyway, back to the book review. This book is Goddess Boot Camp by Tera Lynn Childs. It's the sequel to Oh. My. Gods. and it continues to follow Phoebe, who still doesn't have control of her demi-god powers. So she's forced to attend a camp that'll help get her powers under control. Review is under the cut and this time there aren't really spoilers, unless you missed the first book.

I love books. They can take me away from dysfunctional situations or frustrated feelings and just help me relax. Whenever I need to go somewhere else, I can just pick up a book and lose myself in it. Great type of book to do this with is the fluffy teen romances scattered throughout the teen shelves at the book store. You know the type; they have cheesy covers, strangely entertaining plots that depend a lot on coincidence, and many various authors, but are never part of a series. Most recently I read Suite Dreams by Rachel Hawthorne. I have a few of her teen romances and they're usually pretty fun. This one is about this girl in college in Vermont. Her sort-of boyfriend swapped couches with student from Australia and he ends up sleeping on the girl's couch instead. Review is under the cut and no spoilers this time.
