Cath and Wren were inseparable, united by being twins and equal obsessiveness with Simon Snow. That was until they went to college and Wren, being more out going and growing out of Simon Snow, didn’t want to be roommates. Cath doesn’t want friends. She is perfectly happy going through the rest of her college life doing nothing other than writing fanfiction. Online socialization is all she needs. Her roommate, Reagan, and her roommate’s boyfriend, won’t let her be. She soon becomes friends with this odd roommate of hers and learns that her roommate’s cute “boyfriend”, Levi, isn’t her boyfriend anymore. That changes things, but so does Nick. The boy from her advanced fiction writing class. Cath gets into some sticky situations, “Cath didn’t wake up when the door swung open. But she jumped when it slammed closed. That’s when she felt Levi sprawled out beneath her, the warm scrape of his chin against her forehead. Then she woke up.” how can she get herself out of that one? Does Cath even have time for this with the 8th and final Simon Snow book coming out so soon and Carry On, her fanfiction gone famous, not finished. Her fans are waiting, but so is the rest of her life.
Rainbow Rowell does an amazing job telling this fanfiction-y story with grace and unbelievably believable, character development. Cath’s character development is page turning. She gives all us fangirls hope for finding love, even if it may come unexpectedly. I loved this book. It was extremely relatable, funny and sweet. It was a fast easy read for me, I read it in like two days. I would give it a 9 out of 10. My only two complaints are: one that there was no epilog and two, that the Simon Snow series is not real.
Again sorry for the lack of posting I will try to increase my posts!
Jeez I’m bad. I was away on a school trip with no technology from last Tuesday to last Friday. So I didn’t get a chance to post anything since before that I was packing and after that I’ve been spending time with family and been nonstop busy! So I’ve got a post today with all the fixins’.
Picture by Me
To start of this overdue post, I am SO thrilled I just exceeded 100 followers on I’m Thinking Happy! I have a total of 106 followers (at the moment). It feels like it was just yesterday I was overjoyed getting 50 followers (even though that was October 12, 2013)! I want to thank all of my followers for helping me get this point and being so awesome! I want to shout out to my parents for being my first followers and always reading my blog (also for giving me life but that’s another post). I would also like to shout out “armerando” and “afisherman2013” for almost always commenting on my blog and encouraging me to write. And last but not least I want to shout out to all my new blogging friends, you know who you are if you are one.
I like to post things my followers like and I love getting comments(good or bad!). If you have anything to say don’t be afraid to comment no one is gonna chop off your head if they don’t like your comment. So let me know what you think or what you want me to post/not post. Once again thank you to all my amazing followers. You guys are FANTABULOUS!
I’ll end this post with a quote from the next book I’ll be reviewing –
“A snowball in the face is surely the perfect beginning to a lasting friendship.”
― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief
So there’s my post with all the fixins’, quote and all! I hope, I keep helping keep people thinking happy! Because I’m thinking happy and so should you!
If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you. – A. A. Milne
The main reason I love this quote is because when I was little (like 5 years old) I always thought about love in that way. I mean I always said, I hope my mom, my dad, my brother and I would die at the same time so none of us would need to live with out the others. I felt that way because I loved them so much I could not dream of a world with out them. I have known them my whole life and don’t know life with out them. So I guess it’s more a fear my 5 year old self had. Now a little bit older I understand that fear of loss more then I did when I was younger. So I guess what I’m saying is I understand this quote. Do you get it?
Happy late Thanksgiving! I’m thankful for many things and people, including my family and friends, the wonderful life I get to live and all the amazing books I’ve been reading (more book reviews coming soon!)
What are you thankful for? Comment below!
We all have a past, but this is the present, and baby, you’re my future.
I came up with this after watching a tv show and talking to my mom. I didn’t even realized I’d said something clever, till she said, “Wait, what did you just say?”. Tell me what you think of my new “Quote”!
This post is very different from anything I have posted in the past. It is sort of book review/descriptions. This is something I have wanted to try for a while now. So tell me what you think and if you think I should do more reviews of books I’ve read. While you read this I would like you to keep in mind that these are my thoughts and you may have different ones.
I Hadn’t Meant to Tell You This, by Jacqueline Woodson, is about two unlikely friends with one thing in common, their mothers both died. Marie a cool girl and Lena a new kid feel drawn to each other for this reason. They soon become great friends. As they begin to confide in each other Marie learns a secret of Lena’s. So Marie is faced with a hard question. Should she tell someone or follow Lena’s wish and keep it a secret? Find out what she decides, in I hadn’t Meant to Tell You This.
I read I Hadn’t Meant to Tell You This, for one of my summer reading books. I read it in less than a day. It is short and a fast read. Parts interested me but it wasn’t my favorite book. There wasn’t much that really pulled me in and kept my interest. Jacqueline Woodson, did a good job writing it but the story didn’t interest me. It would not be one I would recommend for any one younger than me (12). The book discussed some mature subjects. But over all I would give it like a 6 out of 10.
I’m sorry to all my followers for how long it has been since my last post. My last post was over a year ago!!! In that time I lost my password to email, so I didn’t see that I had to renew my site domain. So I lost the abilities to post. Then I slowly forgot about my blog. Till I was at my new school and we had a class blog. So my amazing mom spent several hours, days, even weeks getting my site back. So I’m back up and running.
My blog is going to change a bit, because I have changed a bit. I will still have my slide shows, but I wont do them every week I might throw in some more wordy blogs. If you have anything you want me to make a slide show about, let me know your idea by “comment” and I’ll try to put it in! I hope this change will improve my blog and help it appeal to a larger audience. I hope you like it! I’m looking forward to blogging again!
