 so with the abandonment of my 30 days of me! game, I guess I can get back to my random posting of nothing and my weekly updates. 

Monday. hm. I haven't been doing anything substantial lately because I've been so engrossed in this new book series, The Sookie Stackhouse novels, also called the Southern Vampire Mysteries. my mother bought me the boxed set of seven two christmas' ago. two more have come out since then, and there's one scheduled to come out in May, so that makes ten books so far. I'm four chapters into the ninth at the moment.

these books are good. I don't love Sookie, the main character. the book is first person POV, so it's all told from sookie's point of view, and she...well, she annoys me. seriously, the only reason I'm reading these books is because of the vampires, and one vamp in particular. the character Eric Northman. he's so frickin awesome and I'm totally in love with him and finally, FINALLY, she's (the author) done what I want her to with him, and his relationship with sookie. 

so those books have really wrapped me up this week. I know I picked Alex up from work one day and we drove around a little, stopped at Culver's for lunch...well, hah, dinner :D we made tentative plans to hang out maybe two or three times this last week but that never happened. no big deal, I've been so into these books I barely notice the outside world. 

I'm just gonna skip to Friday because as I said, I haven't been doing much of anything this last week. we went to Taco Bell instead of the mall on friday because Brandon wasn't going to be there and Jared didn't show up either. the song 'Time After Time' came on while we were there. I have a version that's done by Eva Cassidy, and apparently the original was by Cindi Lauper? I don't know. but this one was by like...I don't even know, Less Than Jake or Silversun Pickups. some punk/pop band that I don't listen to. I remember catching a few of the lyrics and being like...'um, wtf mates?' and Aly just goes, 'yea, it's what you think it is.' so funny. there's no need to re-do a song like that in such an upbeat tempo. it's not meant to be like that :p

Saturday we went to Webb's at around 11 something. my mother actually came with us, so it was my Mother, my Father, my uncle bob, my cousins ben and mike and me. a little after we ordered my mom asks what the date is, I don't know why, but she did and I look at my phone and tell her, it's the 17th. and the annoying lightbulb goes off over my head and I remember that I had the stupid summerfest interview yesterday morning. It was 12 in the afternoon, the interviews were going on until 1 PM. my mother and I rushed home, I changed clothes, found my purse and my social security card, we rushed down to summrefest and got there at like....12:30. so I made it, had the interview, it was all good. 

that night, Kevin and I went over to Aly and Brandon's house to watch the Chipmunk movie, the Squeakquel. we'd watched the first one as a big family thing, and I'd actually brought Jesse to that, hah. the movie was ok. you could tell they were grasping at any kind of plotline they could come up with to be able to introduce the Chipettes, and it was thin and not well formed because of that. 

today, I read the 9th Sookie book and we went to Olive Garden for dinner. I sat around and didn't eat much because everyone was talking to me, about the Summerfest job, about the Post Office job that I haven't heard anything about in weeks. so that's kind of annoying. *shrug*

hm..go read the sookie stackhouse books. eric is my absolute favorite person right now :D

  • Day 24 - whatever tickles your fancy: Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse novels (although I'm only about three quarters through the first one) are very good. The first one starts a little slow, and I'm still not sure who they're going to wrap this little mystery up, but I really like Bill. Not Sookie so much, but Bill's pretty awesome. I don't love Harris' writing style. It confuses and annoys me more often than not, and usually I wouldn't be able to read a series with an author like that, but my mother bought me these books for Christmas last year, and I have to read them, if only to assuage my guilt at not even touching them since I got them. 

So. I don't highly recommend reading them, but I will at least say that they're good, and I'm enjoying them. :D

  • Day 14 - a non-fiction book: um...does it have to be one that I've read? because I don't actually have any of those...

I've never read a non-fiction book. I mean obviously, in class. most of those would count as non-fiction, but...other than that, I've got nothing. so you know what? how about another fiction book? :D I like that idea :p

Dragon's Milk by Susan Fletcher.



this book is awesome. first in a triology, it's all about dragons. and I love dragons. and the main character, Kaeldra, I think her name is, is kind of awesome. and the male lead is also pretty cool. I don't have as much to say about this book as about Ella Enchanted, because I haven't read this book in a very long time, and I read Ella Enchanted ALL the time :p but it's a good book. it's a great book :D

  • Day 13 - a fictional book: Ella Enchanted. This book...just amazing. I've never been a fan of Cinderella, at least not the Disney movie. the fairytale itself isn't so bad, and Gail Carson Levine does just phenomenal with this book. Ella is funny and Charmont is kind of awesome and everything about it is just great. I can't say enough good things about this book and I can't keep talking, I'd just never stop :p

  • Day 04 - your favorite book: oh jeez. this is another hard one :p The Outsiders. we had to read 'That Was Then, This Is Now' in sixth grade reading class and because I have a thing about reading series in order, I immediately went and found 'The Outsiders' and started reading that instead. I finished it in one sitting and then read it again the next day. I wrote fic about that story, I read fic, I fantasized about the characters (Dallas Winston will forever and always be my favorite book character EVER). That book is just all kinds of amazing. the Harry Potter books are a close second though. Percy Jackson & The Olympians, almost any Nora Roberts book (the Chesapeake Bay Saga especially), Gail Carson Levine's books, The Mortal Instruments, Tamora Pierce's Tortall Quartets. I love reading and I read A LOT, so this list could go on.
