Artist: G-Dragon! (love him) <3

Language: It should be Korean

About: He's the leader of the amazing Korean band, BIG BANG. Wow. I'm in love with them, This song is really weird though. His singing rocks like always, but I don't really like his mv. For one, he dyed his hair freakin' platinum. He's so much cuter with brown. And I think he's wearin' eyeshadow and lipstick in parts of it. He's weird, but cute anyways. Woot! Woot! :)

All I Ever Wanted

Artist: Basshunter

Language: English

About: One of my friends is in love with the dude, so I decided to check out his music and I think it's pretty cool. Very dancy-ish techno. I guess. Whatever. Listen to it but don't watch the vid because it is really stupid. Ew. The song repeats itself over and over though which would probably sound a lot cooler in a club than on the radio. He has a pretty nice voice, but I'm not so into his songs. I don't know what my friend sees in him. -.- Maybe you'll like him?

Song: (i don't recommend watching the vid)

The Narrative Of Frederick Douglass

Author: Frederick Douglass

Summary: Autobiography of the famous abolitionist on his life as a slave.

Mini-Review: I had to read this one for class and everyone either hated it or loved it. I loved it. I thought I was gonna be a hater because I really dislike non-fiction, so I left it 'til the last minute. I finished it really quickly and found that it was refreshing, simple and very story like.

Honestly, if you have to read an autobiography, I recommend this one. It was such a great book and Frederick Douglass can write. All those similes helped me understand what it was he felt throughout his life and his explanatory tone helped to keep the story straight.

Enjoy it people!

A Song

Don't have a review today, but please feel free to listen to this amazing song!

Title: U

Artist: Super Junior M

About: Lovely song by a Korean band even though I'm pretty sure they sing this one in Mandarin. It is super duper catchy and I always sing the english part. I really like this group because all the guys are really cute. :) Also, this song is so much more mature than some of their other ones. I also love SuperGirl and Sorry, Sorry by them. SuperJunior, you rock!


Aww.... :)

Hush, Hush

Author: Becca Fritzpatrick

Summary: A fallen angel for her chem partner. Nora doesn't really know what to make of Patch who seems to know a lot of things about her that no one should know. Even though he seems cold and indifferent, he's also really intriguing. Sometimes a girl can't stay away from that type of guy, but does that make him "the" guy? Nora goes through the year figuring him out and figuring out whether or not to give love a chance. (I probably wouldn't make a good summary writer)

Review: ~LOVE IT~ It was really good. The very beginning was a prologue which gave some insight into the story. It was just a little itsy bit confusing. Still, it was a wonderfully described introduction. The ending didn't rush or felt cut off. It was pretty cute. And funny. :) I haven't read the alternate one, but I heard it wasn't too different.

Nora is a normal girl. I liked her because she was easy to understand since she was a lot like me. I get defensive before offensive. Her personality was realistic in most parts and her reactions fit the situations she found herself in. I saw many reviews that said she was a stronger version of Bella and I guess it is true, but the book isn't like Twilight at all in my opinion. Although I admit that many YA romances begin with a seating chart in science class. The seating chart is realistic. Perfect Chemistry is in Chemistry. Well most actual teen romances probably do begin because two people have classes together, so I understand that scenario.

Patch: He is bad, but nice deep down. Before I read the book, I liked the cover. Afterwards, the cover still made sense, but the guy on the front doesn't remind me of Patch at all really. And I wanted to know Patch's real name. Good thing there is a sequel.

This isn't exactly a relationship book. That is pretty much center stage, but there is more. I think that is unique and steps away from Twilight. There are other main characters which appear almost as much as Nora and Patch. Vee is annoying, but she wasn't way out there. I know people like her. All the characters had distinct traits and I could picture them well enough. Although I loved Patch, he was slightly out of my reach. I didn't understand him very well and felt he was slightly 2-d. The mystery surounding him, clouded him up again. I'm sure the author is saving him for the sequel which I look forward to reading.

Read it. I don't think it'll be a waste because the writing is good. If you decide you don't like it, it'll probably be because you aren't too much into paranormal or you absolutely hated one of the characters. But remember that having a strong reaction to characters is proof of good writing. :) Unless the main character is completely stupid and fake. That doesn't happen here though.

I don't know about the title though. I love it, but it doesn't really seem to fit the story...?

(not a five because it left me wanting more. That can happen when books aren't stand alone)

Leng Zhan

(I think that's the name, meaning Cold War)

Artist: Huang Yida!

Language: Mando

About: I love Huang Yida's voice. This song's mv isn't all that interesting, but if you like his voice then I guess it can be slightly mesmerizing. He also sang Chou Nan Ren for the t-drama Devil Beside You which I loved a lot. Both the drama and the song. :) Listen to it if you have a moment and tell me whether you agree or not that his voice is very enthralling. ^.^

Dead Until Dark

Author: Charlaine Harris

Summary: Sookie Stackhouse lives in a rural town, working as a waitress. She falls for Bill who is a vampire. Vampires are accepted as beings who have been infected with a virus. Sookie finds him attractive and his mind is the only one that she can't read. Yup. Sookie is a telepath and she doesn't like it. This is the first book in the Southern Vampires series.

Review:. I thought it was okay. Still, Sookie is a cool character. She seemed so nice and quirky! Her voice was extremely real. I could picture her expressions along with the way she would say her words and that made me feel like I knew her. In my mind, she is slightly sassy, but completly innocent about it.

Okee, the cover was definitely not my cup of tea. I actually really don't like tea all that much. I love coffee though. Especially caramel machiattos. Yum. Anyways, the cover is kinda gross. Ick.

Vamps are cool. Shapeshifters are cool. Mind readers are cool. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is into vamps because it was a good story and there are multiple vampires.

Fast-paced and had action. I loved the mystery part of it. Vampires are part of the story, but they aren't the main idea which made this book loveable. There is an actual story and vampires are just characters on the stage. The plot didn't totally revolve around them. Sookie is normal. Mostly. I liked her. She was nice.

Okay. Hope you read it if you haven't already although you probably have. Sorry this was such a crappy review, but have hw to do. Loaded this weekend. Ugh.

Notice how many little onomanopoeia words I used today! :)

Um, I don't know if I missed it or what, but who is Bubba? Because Sookie recognizes him and so do other people, but they can't say his real name because he hates it or something. I don't think I actually got the reason why though. Help?

Oh, and even though I give this book a high score, I don't think that I will read the rest of the books. I felt pretty complete with this one. Bill wasn't really comprehendable. He didn't wow me or anything really. I like Edward more.

Gou Ai-Enough Love

Artist: Dong Cheng Wei

Language: Mandarin

About: This is one of the songs in the Taiwanese drama the X-Family. It is the sequel to KO One I think. I haven't watched the first one yet, but I am watching the X-Family. This song is my new musical obsession which just might counter my obsession for Jiro. I love Jiro. ^.^ He's the one sitting down. I don't think this is actually a band. Jiro made it when he was a teen, but it didn't really work out. Jiro is currently in Fahrenheit which is a formal band. Dong Cheng Wei (Jiro's Band) is part of the three series-the X-Family, Ko One, and Ko3an Guo.

So we have the singer of the song who is A-Chord and then Xiu which is the guitarist. I think I like Xiu the best. Very cute! Shuai oh~.~


Very cool! Don't you think? !!!!!!!It's AMAZING!!!!!!

Bones of Faerie

Author: Janni Lee Simner

Summary: The war between humanity and Faerie devastated both sides. Or so fifteen year old Liza has been told. Nothing has been seen or heard from Faerie since, and Liza's world bears the scars of its encounter with magic. Corn resists being harvested; dandelions have thorns. Trees move with sinister intention, and the town Liza calls home is surrounded by a forest that threatens to harm all those who wander into it. Still, Liza feels safe. Her father is strong and has protected their town by laying down strict rules. Among them: any trace of magic must be destroyed, no matter where it is found.

Then Liza's sister is born with faerie-pale hair, clear as glass, and Liza's father leaves the baby on a hillside to die. When her mother disappears into the forest and Liza herself discovers she has the faerie ability to see--into the past, into the future--she has no choice but to flee. Liza's quest will take her into Faerie and back again, and what she finds along the way may be the key to healing both worlds.

Review: Yep. I already reviewed this book. So why am posting about it again? Because now I have my very own copy! Yeah! The one I reviewed was borrowed from the library. I really liked this book and I think that it might just be worth re-reading which is very, very rare for me to ever do. I was really excited. I don't often get my own books, so yep. :)

:) Go here for review.

Review: a little help from my friends

Title: a little help from my friends : A Miracle Girls Novel

Author: Anne Dayton & May Vanderbilt

Summary: (back cover) Who knew junior year could get so complicated?

As the youngest Miracle Girl, Zoe Fairchild was happy to fade into the background last year. But when she sheds her baby fat and shoots up four inches the summer before her junior year, everything changes. Now she's turning heads at school, and this new attention is beginning to strain her relationship with her sweet, serious boyfriend, Marcus. Pressure builds when Zoe's assigned partner for history class is Dean Marchese--a handsome New York transplant who isn't afraid to show her how he feels.

Just when Zoe needs her three best friends the most, the other Miracle Girls are suffering from boy troubles of their own. Even Zoe's rock-solid home life begins to shake beneath her when her parents' relationship frays over finances. As this uncertain year of growing pains comes to a frenetic head, the quietest Miracle Girl must find her voice at long last and take control of her own destiny...with more than a little help from her friends.

Review: Usually books with two authors never work out for me. I guess that these two had a lot of chemistry together because the writing didn't feel rough or rocky. The words were seamless from beginning almost to the very end.

The ending was a little awkward for me. Zoe grew too fast and matured too quickly for it to be natural. She wasn't developed enough there. Everything else made sense. Her reactions were pretty realistic and she didn't seem as shy as I though she would have been. Zoe was a pretty likeable character.

Some scenes in the story did feel a little forced. Like in school, where she has that crazy history teacher; there seemed to be too much description of Zoe's thoughts. It was explanatory, but less would have been more.

I love the problem that this book dealt with. Breaking up with someone who is really nice and wonderful. How do you go about doing something like that? Zoe had a nice, long, stable relationship with Marcus, but Marcus began to not feel right for her. Zoe had to deal with the confusion of being in love and knowing what love really meant.

Her parents were going through a possible divorce, even though they claimed to have loved each other. Zoe's faith in lasting relationships faltered because of it. Her friends were also letting go of old relationships and allowing themselves a second chance of finding the one.

There wasn't cussing or all that other stuff a lot of YA books contain, but I though this was advantageous because most teens aren't rebellious and reckless. Realistic fiction should be realistic. I think that the majority of teens don't cuss every other word. This was a pretty realistic book.

Hope you guys enjoy it if you do decide to read it! :) I really like the cover! The bright pretty colors against the white are very uplifting. Spring in the mid of fall/winter. It's pretty dreary out here.

The Quitter

Artist: NOFX

About: Interesting song. It is rockish which is why I like it. I like pretty much all types of music except for screamo or really slow songs. It does have bad words in it. So yeah. But not too many, so it's okay. I think a lot of ppl said that it reminded them of Anthrax? Some band.
