I dreamt a limitless book, A book unbound. It's leaves scattered in fantastic abundance. On every line there was a new horizon drawn, New heavens supposed, New states, new souls.

Favorite Scene

He reclined a little, propping his arms behind him. "All right, Ronnie. What's your story?"
"Why do you care?"
"Gimme a break." he said, turning to face her. "I'm trying, okay?"
He wasn't sure what she thought about that, but she collected her hair into a loose ponytail, she seemed to accept the idea that she wasn't going to be able to run him off.
"All right. My story: I live in New York with my mom and my little brother, but she shipped us here to spend the summer with our dad. And now I'm stuck babysitting turtle eggs while a volleyball player slash grease monkey slash aquarium volunteer tries to hit on me."
"I'm not hitting on you." he protested.
"Believe me, you'd know if I was hitting on you. You wouldn't be able to stop yourself from succumbing to my charms."
For the first time since he'd arrived, he heard her laugh. He took that as a good sign and went on.

My favorite scene from The Last Song! I'm reading it again, and couldn't resist posting it....

Guess what?!?!?!?! I found another Jane Austen book! And how I'm supposed to pronounce it, I have no idea.....But the name of it is Sanditon "Ooooo" "Ahhhh" (you may applaud...) Sanditon is the last completed novel of Jane's.....even though she didn't complete it, it was completed by someone else, "Another Lady" is what she is called. And the writing styles are surprisingly different, where as Austen has very elaborate, and fluffy words, "Another Lady", (Let's call her ummm....Bob!) uses cliff hangers and a more contemporary writing style. But to wrap this up, I would totally recommend this book to anyone! Oh...and I'm falling in love with Sidney (One of the characters) So my thanks to Jane and Bob!

The Last Song

Finally! A book worth blogging about! Lately I just can't find a good book! Until Now! THE LAST SONG! Ahhhhh this book was soooo refreshing after reading a very cheesy trilogy(if you can even call it that) called The Door Within (the name is even cheesy) hmmm I don't agree with books that end with all the characters dieing....But anyways! Back to the good book! After seeing the movie The Last Song (which was good, but not near as good as the book, I later figured out!) I was inspired to read the book, and I did! I could hardly put it down! It took about all I had to put it down and go to bed at 1:30 in the morning.....And even though while reading it I couldn't stop picturing Miley Cyrus (shiver) I LOVED it!
(And yes Kt, I cried)

Okay, I found another book I want to read, It has probably the longest title in the world, it's Percy Jackson And The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, I saw the movie, and want to read the book so bad! I love watching the movie first, and then reading the book, to see what the do wrong in the movie, because the always get something wrong, I mean, in Eragon the movie, Arya has red hair, yet in the book, BLACK! *shaking head* Never trust the movie. But back to Percy...I know from the back of the book, that he is twelve...well in the movie, he is in high school...they've already got that wrong. I'm so glad there's five in the series, it's almost enough to keep me occupied for a week. Percy...The name is growing on me.

Jane Eyre

Again thanks to British Lit. I had to watch the movie Jane Eyre, then a few weeks later watch the play Jane Eyre.....And loved it! It is about this girl named Jane Eyre (duh), who is orphaned at a young age, and sent to live at a boarding school, and years later is a governess to a wealth man, named Mr. Rochester. I am now reading the book, which is so different then the last book I read, The Hunger Games, which was also good, but still different. So from the girl that has seen the movie, seen the musical, and is reading the book, Jane Eyre is awesome!

British Lit.

Okay...The reason I haven't posted on books I am actually reading lately....is....British Literature/Ethics....BLAH! Well British Lit. isn't bad, I kinda like it (Mom ignore that last statement) I mean, I get to read books, like The Mayor Of Casterbridge, Pride And Prejudice, and um....a bunch of other ones, that are not coming to mind. But Ethics on the other hand.....TERRIBLE (Ignore that one too).

More Book Quotes

"You people with hearts," he said once, "have something to guide you, and need never do wrong; but I have no heart, and I must be very careful."

L. Frank Baum, The Wizard Of OZ

The lofty bookshelves sag
Under thousands of sleeping souls
Silence, hopeful-
Every time I open a book, a soul is awakened.

Xi Chuan, "Books," New Generation

All I need is a sheet of paper
and something to write with, and then
I can turn a world upside down.

Friedrich Nietzsche, Die Weisse und die Schwarze Kunst

"Eat," said Merlot.
"I coulsn't possibly," said Despereaux, backing away from the book.
"Um," said Despereaux, "it would ruin the story."

Kate DiCamillo, The Tale Of Despereaux

I dreamt a limitless book,
A book unbound
It's leaves scattered in fantastic abundance
On every line there was a new horizon drawn,
New heavens supposed;
New states, new souls.

Clive Barker, Abarat

Some Book Quotes

If you are a dreamer, come in
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer,
If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin
Come in!
Come in!

Shel Silverstein

"What do these children do without storybooks?" Naftali asked.
And Reb Zebulun replied: "They have to make do. Storybooks aren't bread. You can live without them." "I couldn't live without them," Naftali said.

The Hunger Games...Part Two

Okay, remember a few posts back, when I was talking about the book The Hunger Games....Well i got to read it. It was awesome! I loved it! Now I can't wait to read the next book Catching Fire, but the library is full of requests on that book....Which makes me sad. What also makes me sad is that after I finish that one...I'll have to wait on the other, The Mockingjay.....And lets just say patience is not one of my virtues.
