Alright people! I said before that this weekend was pretty un-eventful book-buying-wise but not blog wise! Sometime next week I will be presenting to you my first author interview! Christina Kole MacLean, author of How It's done*, will grace us with a couple of short answer questions about her writing and her book. I'm pretty stoked about this because it is my first author interview and i was kind of nervous to ask at first but am now completley on for these series of upcoming interviews! Stay tuned people!
Also, i added a post to my blog called So Memorable, that chronicals my journey through the interesting aray of characters i come in contact with in my books! It will have the book in which i found them, a very compelling or funny quote and a Song Cry-which is a song i picked out from my library especially for their character. Some of your favorites like Melinda Sordino from Speak, Edward from Twilight and others will be featured in this new...well feature! :)
Finally i will be updating on current "Coming Soon" movies! I will have a list of books to be made into movies and a little info about them!
Well that's all for now but look out for these new attractions!
P.S. On July 17th i will be touring the Los Angeles area (aka visiting family)! The picture above is one of me on the Los Angeles Subway! lol My review might come a little infrequent during that time so I just wanted to give you a heads up!

Ratings and Difficulty!
Rating: Incredible- A book that I rate as incredible is both captivating and creative! It is highly recommended and a definite must read!
Great- A great book has some bad parts but mostly a bunch of strong points. It is interesting but seems to lag at some points.
So So- A book labeled as So So is not recommended unless you are highly interested in the topic or author. It has a few good parts but a ton of bad parts.
Total Bomb- A book that is a total bomb is not recommended under any circumstances. Usually I like to find the good in every book but a bomb is just a waste of time!
Difficulty: Advanced- Everyone’s reading abilities are different but an advanced book is exactly that…advanced! This may have dialogue from another era or highly developed words.
Normal- A normal book is a book that has everyday dialogue and vocabulary but also may have a few “big words” scattered here or there.
Easy- An easy book has basic vocabulary and can be read by anyone over the age of ten.
