So a couple weeks ago, I watched the Insurgent movie. I was supposed to see it with Gazelle, but that didn't happen. Just from the trailer, I could tell that the movie had a bigger budget and they knew how to use it. With the holograms everywhere and the more vivid sims, this movie was definitely getting their bang for their buck. However, I usually get annoyed when movies add things like the holograms because, even though they're a nice touch, they poke holes in the story because of their absence in the previous movie.

Hi guys, I just finished Extraordinary Means and I realized I haven't posted a full book review in a while. I have so many thoughts about this book anyways that I might as well do one. Just for everyone who hasn't read this book, here's a little bit about it. There's a new strand of TB going around called Total Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis (TDR-TB). It's highly contagious, so people who have it usually have to either be on house arrest or at a sanatorium, which is kind of like an institute filled with people with the disease. We follow Lane, who has just been diagnosed with TDR-TB and is moving into a sanatorium called Latham House. While he is there, he finds a girl from his past, Sadie, and the two become friends, but we obviously know more than just friendship occurs.
I finally did it.
It took me months to even bother but I have....................finally.............................REORGANIZED MY BOOKSHELF *cues party music*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today I am here with Ava, one of the greatest people ever! We're doing the unpopular opinions book tag (if you cannot read titles). My answer is going to be in blue, Ava's will be in red and our joint opinions will be in purple. I'm sorry if you're colorblind. Please don't be offended by anything we say, if you are sensitive, go talk to Gazelle.
So I went to the book sale last weekend, but I haven't actually gotten to write everything down because I have been so busy with the Percy Jackson Challenge, volunteering and trying to meet up with all of my friends before the end of the summer. I also didn't get to do a bookhaul in July because I was in Cleveland during the book sale, but I did buy a couple books during July. I've already posted reviews on them so I find it kind of pointless to include them.
The title...right. Well, I was basically outside for 30 minutes at night and even though I was wearing leggings and bug spray, I somehow managed to get 49 mosquito bites (and no, I'm not overexaggerating, I really counted all of them). I'm allergic to mosquitoes but THANK THE HEAVENS ABOVE because I didn't go into anaphylactic shock. My legs do feel weirdly numb, itchy and pained in different sections. So, be warned, I may sound really irritated in this bookhaul.
Hi guys! I know, it's been really long, I've either been in classes, at rehearsals, in the studio or working pretty much all month long (except for the weekends when I was out of town). This isn't supposed to be a bunch of lame excuses though, I just wanted to make a couple of announcements.
I TOTALLY DIDN'T JUST MAKE THIS SKETCHY PICTURE OF MYSELF ON POWERPOINT
PLEASE NOTE: MY NAME IS NOT BUTTER FOR NO REASON (DEM DOUBLE NEGATIVES DOH). I WILL BE SALTY AND MUSHY AND GROSS AND I AM NOT AFRAID TO USE PROFANITY SO READ AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION.
'Sup people... It's Butter. Please don't think I sound angsty and dead-ish because that's just me after reading until two in the morning. I guess I like reading YA books because they're quite easy to get what's going on and they allow the sluices in my brain to open for all that rush of fangirling. However, I'm kind of being peer pressured into reading classics because "they're better for my reading comprehension" which is a-ok awesome but I'm still a child who dreams of random awesomeness... Not historical fiction. I'm sorry for being "that one kid" and I'm trying to transition, please love meeeee. Also my grammar sucks so please don't judge (Can you tell I'm half dead while writing this?).
Hi! I'm Caramel, the mastermind behind all of this. I've been reading forever. Seriously, my family calls me Hermione. My first memorable book that got me on the path of fangirling is the Harry Potter series, that I read in kindergarten. It was the spark for my bonfire of reading. I'll read just about any genre, or anything, truthfully. I'd probably read a bibliography if you gave me that too.
Hey! Gazelle here! I'm the resident PJO fangirl. The first book series I got into was the PJO series, then I read the Harry Potter books. I LOVED them all. I'm also a huge Lunar Chronicles fan. I actually love a lot of books, I don't think I can name them all. To be honest, I'm really not sure what to say next, Caramel just kind of shoved this in front of me and said, "Here, write something about yourself." I don't know what else to say, so if you could just pretend you're reading the most heart-felt thing in the world, laugh, smile, hold this to your heart, and maybe even shed a few tears, then that would be great. Thanks, I owe you one. Bottom line: I like books. A lot.
