dancing and spinning and looking like a fool

Well, hello there. Haven't seen you in awhile.

This is going to be one of those infamous "uptade" posts that I personally don't like reading; but somehow I feel it is necessary due to my most unexplained absence.

I can't say anything interesting has been going on. My room has turned purple, I have turned 18, and I survived that blizzard that had everyone talking. Other than that, things have pretty much stayed the same, and I can't complain.

Oh, but there is something else. I certainly did read a lot. Wanna hear it? Too bad, I'm putting them down anyway!

My two favorite on this list are Trouble and When You Reach Me.

A Curse as Dark as Gold was also good especially for Bunce's first novel.

Oh I forgot about Any Which Wall. That was good too!

Well, I thought that Curse Dark as Gold would turn out better than it did, but it was still decent.
