Two Important Things!

It's Lydia and I have five important things to talk about. I know that the title says two, but the first three of them are not really that important..

Ok, 1. I'm so sorry i haven't posted in a while, but I have three tests and 2 projects this week, and a test and 3 projects next week. I don't want to study, so I'm doing this instead. I like this form of procrastionation. It's fun.

2. I am the co-winner of Alea (of Pop Culture Junkie, which is aleapopculture.blogspot.com)'s Meg Cabot Runaway Blog Tour! I won a $50 iTunes gift card! I know this is really braggy and rude, but it's the first contest I've like, ever won, so I'm excited!

3. I've decied to start labeling my posts. I'm not really sure what this does, but I'm going to try it and see what it does/if it works/how I'm going to label things.

4. Happy Release Day to Liz Kessler!! Today is the US release of Emily Windsnap and the Siren's Secret!! Amy is very excited, and has already got it. I have to finish Castle in the Mist before I can even go to the bookstore. And a lot of other books. I have to reduce my TBR pile. By a lot. Hopefully I'll finish this, and have time to read before dinner. Happy (US) Release Day Liz!!

5. I have a review! I know it's been forever, but better late than never. 
Dirty Little Secrets by C.J. Omololu (summerization from frount flap of book)
     From the outside, Lucy's home looks normal. Inside the front door is where the secrets begin. Towering piles of newspapers and magazines. Bags of junk flooding every inch of open space. The rotting smell permeating the air. This is what she's kept from everyone-that her mothers compulsive hoarding has reduced their lives to garbage...literally.
     With just two years until graduation, Lucy finally feels like a normal life is within her grasp. Her new best friend, Kaylie, and her longtime crush, Josh, make a future seem almost possible.
     Then one morning Lucy comes home to find something she never expected, something that will change her life forever. And she must ask herself-how far can she go to protect her family's secrets?

Dirty Little Secrets was such a great book. It kind of confused me how Lucy kept telling stories about what happened in the past, because I'd lost where we were in the story. I also love the cover! I really got into this book, and read it in only a few hours! It was written really well, and I loved how Lucy solved her problem at the end of the book. The charachters meshed as well as their relationships descirbed, and C.J. didn't overdo it. I really do not like it when an author overdescribes the relationship between charachters. Overall, Dirty Little Secrets was a really gripping book that wouldn't let me put it down until I found out what had happened!

Ok. I guess I should go back to studying now...I don't want to, but before I go.....
The book I'm currently reading is..well, I'm reading 2: The Time Travlers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (for school, but it's still really good, and I hope to do a post on it) and Emily Windsnap and the Castle in the Mist by Liz Kessler.
thanks for reading!!
