twiiiiiiiiiiilight fever!

It's me, Kellianne. Thanks for letting me post on here! :) I really feel official now, HOOTY-FREAKN-WHOO!

Well, I must say that I have gotten 2 people in my office to start reading twilight and they LOVE IT. One girl told me she is addicted and is already on New Moon and can't wait to read the next ones! So THANK YOU to my wonderfully cool friends who peer pressured me into reading Twilight..... now look at me.... I LOVE IT! :)

Once I get done reading the series I am going to start reading "Marley and Me". Have any of you read it? I've heard GREAT reviews about it. I actually bought the book to make myself read it after Twilight and the others. Brandon's mom has read it and loved it. OH OH! Speaking of Brandon's mom, I got her to buy Twilight and she is reading it right now. :) Aren't you guys proud of me?

Anyway... go read that book if you haven't!

Bye Girls!

More Books I Know!

So I know the list of books we all have lined up is incredibly long and just keeps getting longer, but I wanted to blog about this book I just finished. You may have already read it because I know it was a popular book and one of Oprah's favorites, but I am still dazed from reading it. I'm actually deciding that I'm not going to try and sum up this book because I think it would be too hard and it won't give it enough justice, but I took this off one of the reviews I read. 

A Thousand Splendid Suns is a tale of two generations of characters in Afghanistan, brought together by the tragic sweep of war, where personal lives-the struggle to survive, raise a family, find happiness-are all inextricable from the history playing out around them. It is a striking, heart-wrenching novel of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship, and an indestructible love. 

All I have to say is that it fills you with a full range of human emotions, from rage, love, hate, hope and above all, faith. Let me just tell you, I cried my eyes out. I apologize for the horrible blog, but your just going to have to read it sometime in this lifetime. Not anytime soon, I know, but sometime. 
This is the other book Hosseini wrote before A Thousand Splendid Suns, and it's really good also. I read it this summer and it was an international best seller. Another tear jerker that fills you with a million emotions, but definitely worth reading. They actually made a movie out of this book, but like all movies the book is way better.

The Time Traveler's Wife

So I just finished this book and it was AMAZING!!! Brilliant writing is all I can say. This author, Audrey Niffenegger is so talented. I cried, I laughed, it was so so good. I definitely recommend this book to all of you. It is definitely one of those books we should all read. This book "is a heart-wrenching account of a time traveler named Henry, who spontaneously "travels." He cannot control when the time travel happens and it leads to a very unpredictable life. Henry meets Clare and thus begins a love story of two people who can never be completely together. Oh it is so good girls. I would definitely mail it to one of you but it is a library book that I checked out. It is an older book so you can probably find it at the library too. Let me know what ya'll think about it!!

Something Blue

Let me just take a minute and say how much I LOVED this book. And now I just love Darcy. I hated her so much and now I love her!!! I cannot wait to read "Baby Proof"! Have any of you read "Love the One You're With" yet? Emily Giffin is a very talented author. Her stories are so real and believable. It is almost like she is telling the story from personal experience. I got my cousin Teri to read "Something Borrowed" and she finished "Something Blue" before I did and is now reading "Baby Proof"! And I had a feeling Goeffrey and Sondrine would get together after he brought Sondrine home that one night. Did any of you get that feeling? Girls thank you so much for making me read this book! And Val thank you so much for mailing it to me. When JD sends me the PC Cast books and I finish reading them, I will mail all the books including "Something Blue" back to you! The next book I am starting is called "The Time Traveler's Wife". I will let ya'll know how it goes! Then movie is coming out soon and it stars one of my favorites, Rachel McAdams!

Thursday, October 23, 2008


so... since i was reprimanded.. :P by JD for putting up a new banner on my blog without getting one up for the BCB.. i figured i'd work on one and put it up.. obviously..

please let me know how you guys like it.. if you want something to be changed or added or anything like that.. i haven't been feeling very creative lately so.... this is what you guys get.. JD came up with the layout.. i put it together.. however haphazardly.. :)

i tried to get the book bigger.. but it starts to look wonky.. give me some ideas and i'll try to work it in.. i'm working on saturday so hopefully, if it's gonna change it'll be on sunday..

ok.. peace and love...

you moved the tea!!!!!

Okay girls, so I wanted to blog about his book that I read about a month ago. It's a really short story and an easy read, but it's nothing like the books we've been blogging about. Although there is a short love story that goes along with the book, it is mainly about the life of a Bin Laden women. It's a true story of Osama Bin Ladens sister in-law, Carmen Bin Ladin. Basically it is Carmen's life story of what it was like being a part of the Bin Ladin family before 9/11 happened. It is really interesting and eye opening the reality of the whole thing. It makes me appreciate my up bringing and my life here in America. It does not really go into details about what happened on 9/11 or even to much about Osama, however it gives you insight into what life is like for Islamic women and how behind they are compared to America.  I know it may sound boring but it is really good and like I said before, it's a quick read.

Nights in Rodanthe

howdy guys. so i finally finished this 200 page book. i don' tknow why it took my 5 days to read something i could have read in 1 but it did...and not because it wasn't good...because it was great! i have not seen the movie, but i have to say something so cliche but true...the book is probably better. only because there is not a whole lot of dialogue...anyway, what it's about...Adrienne and Paul are in the more adult years of their lives (like 48 and 60ish). both divorced and meet eachother in Rodanthe. Adrienne is watching an Inn for her friend and Paul is the lone customer staying there. it is about their few nights together at the Inn and like many of Sparks' other's a tear jerker...but it is a sweet sweet story, and a great read.

Saturday, October 18, 2008

love you guys. o and i lost the pics we had on the site...whoever put them on...please replace them b/c i dont have them all.

A Great and Terrible Beauty

Ok girls, I mentioned this book when you came to Texas but now I am on the second one in the series "Rebel's Angels". JD I think you will really love these books! They are so Harry Potter-esque. Gemma Doyle, sixteen and proud, must leave the warmth of her childhood home in India for the rigid Spence Academy, a cold finishing school outside of London, followed by a stranger who bears puzzling warnings. Using her sharp tongue and agile mind, she navigates the stormy seas of friendship with high-born daughters and her roommate, a plain scholarship case. As Gemma discovers that her mother's death may have an otherworldly cause, and that she herself may have innate powers, Gemma is forced to face her own frightening, yet exciting destiny . . . if only she can believe in it. There is also a quasi-love interest in the story named Kartik who is a part of a brotherhood called the Rakshana, and his job is to track Gemma and keep her from using her powers. So there is a "forbdden romance" element in the story as well. The story is set in the Victorian Age, and it has a gothic feel to it, and it is AMAZING!!! You guys pick it up at the local library! Or I am pretty sure they sell the first two books in paper back.

Sunday, October 5, 2008

So I just finished this book that I started when we all met in Texas called The Queen's Fool. It took me that long because some parts of the book drag on a bit, however it turned out to be a really good book. 

The book takes place in 1553 and is about a young Jewish girl named Hannah who is forced to flee Spain in hopes of surviving and starting a new life in England. Hannah and her father are forced to practice their Jewish religion in secrecy because it is forbidden to practice any other religion other then Christianity, those who are caught are burned on the steak. Hannah is no ordinary refugee she has the gift to foresee the future. She is discovered by Robert Dudley, the son of King Edward's protector and he brings Hannah to court as a "holy fool" for Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth.

Basically she begins working as a spy, first for Dudley then for Queen Mary. She is endangered by the laws against heresy, treason and witchcraft. She is suppose to marry in wedlock but falls in love with her master and she is then forced to choose between a safe life of commoner and the dangerous intrigues of the royal family. 

Although there are some parts that I thought could have been cut out because it dragged on, the book and story-line are really good. It is a interesting story about our history in the 1500's and also a very good love story.

Something New

this book was absolutely fantastic. y'all know that it is in Darcy's POV...and i think it is hilarious that every person says they are turned off from that in the beginning because of how dreadful she is as a character in Something Borrowed. well, needless to say, this is the end to the Darcy/Rachel/Dex saga...and i loved it. can't wait till y'all read it so we can talk!

REVIEW: Baby Proof - Emily Giffin

So I decided to keep with the Emily Giffin theme and got one of her other books Baby Proof. It is a separate story from Something Borrowed and Something Blue.

As all Emily Giffin's novels do, this one is also set in New York, with their high achieving main characters. Baby Proof is about this woman named Claudia, she is an editor for a big publishing firm. All her life she has never wanted to be a mother. She likes kids just fine but never had that maternal instinct that most girls have growing up when they think what their own kids will be like. She liked the role of Cool Aunt. Well she goes on a blind date with Ben, an architect for the city. He wants all the same things in life that she does. And he too, doesn't want kids. They get married and have a great marriage. They're completely compatible, until one of them has a change of heart and decides that they actually do want to have kids.

Now for me.. being one of those girls that wants kids.. desperately.. couldn't really find common ground with Claudia. I couldn't find any part of myself in her which is what makes it easier to read stories. And is probably the reason why it took me a week to read it. The story starts out a little slow at first but about 1/3 of the way into the book it begins to pick up and find its stride in the plot.

It is actually a good book. It was just a little difficult for me to become engaged in the characters. I personally identified more with Claudia's sister Daphne and her best friend Jess.

But, I'm looking forward to getting Something Blue in the mail from JD so I can see Darcy's side of things. I loved Something Borrowed a lot!

Something Borrowed

my new fave... ok so it isn't replacing Twilight, but i absolutely adore this book. and each of you should read it. why? well, because the character is us...or at least it's me...and i mean that without the actuality of the story. Rachel, the main character, gets herself into a pickle by sleeping with her best friends fiance the night of her 30th birthday party. (so that part isn't me) but, the way she tells the story, and has hilarious internal monologue that stretches into randoms thoughts that is sooo me...and i know all three of you as well.

another reason to love the book is because we all have a friend like Darcy (the one with the fiance). anyway, Rachel struggles with how to deal with having feelings for Dex and what to do about Darcy in the wedding...i have told you the gist of the book, but i don't want to tell you any more because i don't want to sway any of you on the story line...but know that i LOVED it...and re-read the ending 3 times, because it is so gratifying to hear............well i can't tell you. y'all read it and we will have a discush later :)

Left Behind again. so you already know this story...but i feel inclined to tell it again. i started reading these books before college...and 4 books down, i took about an 8 year break before i picked up the fifth book Apollyon. i guess i just wasn't in the mood or i don't know what...but needless to say...after thinking i may need to start over so i can remember details, i decided who wants to start over?? two pages into reading, EVERYTHING comes back to me...even my general emotions that i had when i began the series many moons ago :) if you have no idea what the books are about i will give you a rundown.
the series takes place post Rapture. and is based out of the book of Revelations. in Left Behind the authors start right out with millions of Christians dissappearing. the people left behind try to figure out what happened, but those "Christians" who were lacking in their faith or those who were just not living their lives in the right way..."knew" what happened. this book and the ones after are fiction, but written in a way that makes me fear being one that is left. i know where i am in my faith...but always struggle knowing it can hardly be enough. this is kind of a hard post to blog about for me...because i don't know where y'all would stand after reading these books. only to say that it is a very intense series, and i do need to read a happy book inbetween each book. i finished Apollyon in 2 days...they are very very easy to read once you get going. they are graphic, because they need to be...nothing after the rapture will be easygoing (and now i'm speaking in truth and not books), but............i really don't know what else to say unless you pick up the books yourself to read. i will tell you that i listened to the first book on audio tape b/c that is what my mom had back then...and it is done like a movie. when people dissapear in the airplane and the author is talking about it there are people screaming in the you girls who drive to work...that may be a good one to start with.

Queen of Babble

So I just finished the first book in this series called "Queen of Babble" by Meg Cabot. She wrote the "Princess Diaries" books. These are her adult books. They are SO FUNNY! The girl in them, Lizzie Nichols, has just graduated college (almost) and can't keep her big mouth shut ever! She just lost 30 pounds and is going to visit the boyfriend she has only met for one night who lives in England. She is so crazy. She wears these vintage clothes that everyone thinks look weird and she doesn't care at all. What goes on in her head SO reminds me of us. Jumping from subject to subject. I got book one and two Friday and am half way through book #2 today (Queen of Babble in The Big City). You girls will like them! And they guy in the book, Jean Luc (Luke) is from Houston! Read it, seriously. The third book is called "Queen of Babble Gets Hitched." Kristin I think you will especially love these books!

P.S. My book is hardback and has a different cover so don't be alarmed.

Blogged by Danni

Sad but WONDERFUL books

well girls, let me just say that the tears flowed in this one. i definitely cried the last 30 minutes of me reading the book. then when it was over...the last line made me smile...and cry again.

Danni read the first book to this True Believer. i didn't realize there was a first book so i read the ending first, and still fell in love with the i will probably cry all the way through True Believer knowing the end. it was so good...i can't even tell you guys. and i don't want to tell you too much about it because i may ruin what is in the first storyline. i don't know, maybe i appreciated At First Sight so much, because i have been through the birthing process...and there is just so much to laugh at in this book...and SO much that hit close to home for me when i was carrying Jaxon and being in the hospital giving birth. anyway...i would love for y'all to read this.

and one more tear jerker. i read this over the summer and just thought about blogging about it. i talked about it on my other blog for like 5 seconds...but y'all may have skimmed over it.
i think Val listened to it...anyway. the author also writes the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants you already know the book is going to be cute.
it's about 2 sisters who are both in their 20's (i think...remember i read it during my twilight faze (hehe like that ended)). well the older sis, the athlete/lifeguard, cool girl who has a boy for the best friend, has always been great at being a big sis...the younger who has always had a "secret crush" on her sister's best friend all spend one last summer at their families beach houses. and without giving anything away i can't say any more. there is love/loss/secret romance/and lots of tears to be shed by the reader. i wish i had a sister sometimes when i think about this book.

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

hey guys, so i have been reading this book, the lovely bones on and off for about a month and a half because i kept putting down to feed my Twilight addiction. But i really wanted to finish this book because the story was so good!

it's basically told through the eyes of a 14 year old girl who was brutally raped and murdered. she's up in "her heaven" watching her friends and family cope and go on with their lives as they can.

there's not a lot i can say about it without feeling like i'm ruining something. but i can tell you that towards the end it did in fact make me cry a little... i'm really glad i ended up finishing it.. i read over 150 pages in the last two days to finish. but it was worth it. because it's really good. i kind of really suck at summaries.. but yeah.. there it is.. :)

next up... alice sebold wrote lucky: a memoir... it's about her life as a child and then when she was raped at 18. and the aftermath of coping with the horrible incident and trying to find the guy who did it.

ok bye.

Thursday, September 4, 2008

Okay ladies so now that we are thinking about reading the classics like Jane Austen, Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre I thought I would recommend one of my favorite classics, The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. It's been awhile since I read this book so  I don't remember all of the details, but I do remember how much I loved it and how much I couldn't put it down. The characters are like no one you would ever fall in love with, but some how during the book low and behold you do! The story is about an intransigent young architect named Howard, his violent battle against conventional standards and his explosive love affair with a beautiful woman name Dominique, who struggles to defeat him. Dominique and Howard start a love affair that is painful for both of them. She wishes to destroy him because he represents her "ideal" and Howard, no matter what she does to him, keeps coming back because he is faithful and in love (like Edward)!!!  I'm not really good at summarizing books and making them sound appealing, but this book is really good and if you ever get the chance, definitely read it! I plan on re-reading soon hopefully.

The Host

Okay so I am excited that this is my first blog on our webpage and I think I'm finally starting to figure out how this works. It's taken me a few trial and errors but I'm coming around. Let me just say that I blogged a whole page and forgot to save it and somehow it disappeared while I was trying to upload the cover of The Host. So here it goes, I'm trying it again. I just finished the book The Host written by our dearest beloved author Stephanie Meyer and let me tell you it was a difficult book to get into. It starts off incredibly slow and confusing, but as you get into it, about a quater of the way it gets more intersting. It took me twice as long to finish this book then it did to finish all four of the Twilight series. I do have to say that the ending shocked me and was so much better then I expected it to be, which of course is a plus. Although this book is not one of my favorites and is not on my top list, I still recommend it because it is nothing like you've read before.

Midnight Sun

Midnight Sun.
alright girls...i know we do our email tag just about every day...and the subjects of the emails are always centered around our beloved Stephenie Meyer. i just wanted to know what you think about her semi temper tantrum. and it may not even be that...which she deserves to throw one. anyway, i'm putting my opinion out there...and i want to know your responses. maybe she will stumble upon our blog and find it out of the goodness of her heart to continue this story that we love so dearly.

k. so i absolutely have no idea what she can be feeling right now, because it seems that things just keep hitting her from every angle. first with the release of breaking dawn...and then she received all of the undeserved backlash from the book (which again i think is perfect in its entirety) and then this happens. Midnight Sun, or most of it is leaked to the world...and anyone who has been anticipating it from the released first chapter on her site had to have been dying to read it when they heard the news. i would have to say it was the closest i can get to understanding her world of vegetarian vampires...because if this manuscript were a human...and i were a newborn...i definitely failed the task of resisting what means so much to us.

i just about sprinted to my computer...knocked pictures off the wall and broke my toe running into the bed to get these chapters downloaded on my computer...why? is it wrong? i'm sure on some level...but for me, and i'm sure MILLIONS like me wanted more of the world Stephenie created...and is that wrong? to me, noPe (with a popping noise on the P). i know i don't control Meyer's feelings, but she should see that the sole person who may have ruined the surprise for her readers was the one who ruined this for her. i know she may want to primp up the story in its entirety for her fans...but putting it on hold indefinitely hurts me as a huge fan...i literally felt my heart break. i WANT this book...and i'm not the only one i'm sure...but her being so angry at one person, causes her to quit writing a story that is already written doesn't make sense. it makes me feel punished for loving her story. Stephenie, i apologize for not staying away...but i can't hold out indefinitely for this book...i need it like Renesmee needs steel nipples (on her bottle...i hope y'all got that).

A Certain Slant of Light

Hello friends! I miss you all so much! I already told you about this book, but I still wanted to blog about it!

I recently read this book called A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb and let my say, it is VERY interesting. It is the story of a ghost named Helen (ghosts are called “Light” in the book) who attaches herself to certain humans to haunt (not in a scary way though). No one can see her not even the person she attaches herself too. Helen cannot see other “Lights” either. Until one day someone sees her. She finds out he is also a “Light” who has taken over a human body that lost its “spirit” – but the body is still alive. So he can taste and smell and touch, but Helen cannot because she does not have a human body. They are both 20 something people stuck in teenagers body – and they are CRAZY about each other. But they cannot feel each other or kiss or anything. She finds a way to attach herself to him and haunt him and then finds a body to inhabit so she can feel human and most importantly KISS him. Oh my gosh – I am so ready to read at lunch. You girls are really going to like it. Let me warn you - the end is kind of weird - and there was some unanswered questions for me. (Good 'ol Stephenie Meyer is definitely the best author EVER) Anyway - go buy it. I know JD aleady has. I just started on the classic novel Jane Eyre. I usually have a hard time with classics but I will let you know how it goes!!

What it is? (Ghetto slang)

i hate fighting with internet layouts and whatnot so i gave up on trying to get good pictures of the books on my post. so anyway...just enjoy!

Gregory Maguire has created this fantastic world of just...i dunno...craziness to the fairytells that we were raised on. i started with Wicked (partial cover to the left) and i believe that is the first book of the non-series. i started these books in the middle of my true series mania (harry and twiligh) and i really couldn't move away from those books (still having issues) so i haven't finished this series yet.

and it's really no series because the books are hardly related...well except two. anyway...what you need to know to get your appetite wet is that Wicked is about the wicked witch of the west...and her back story as to why she has become the "wicked" witch...and in light of her eyes...she totally doesn't deserve the title...why? well read the book and you will understand...sometimes when you read it you may think...seriously did that just happen? and it's a little grown up...definitely more than twilight. anyway there is love, violence, rape, and all sorts of a crazy mess that i like to call greatness.

other books in the quazi series...Son of a Witch...(which is somewhat part 2 to Wicked)....Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister (which i will start once i finish Son of a Witch...which i will finish when i can put Breaking Dawn down)...Mirror Mirror...and Lost. I don't have those yet...but I'm sure they are must buys!

Peace out and I love you girls!

Hello Fellow Friends Gone Nerdy...

OK girls, here is most first addition to our much talked about "book club blog" and let me just say how friggin' excited I am.

Topic A:

I love the whole Twilight series from start to finish, with Breaking Dawn definitely being my favorite. Gosh what an incredible writer that Stephenie Meyer is. So now we must wait another year for Midnight Sun to come out, and let me tell you, I am already counting the days. (Is there a release date ladies?)

Topic B:

I have recommended these books to Val and JD, but Kristin I don't know if I told you yet. Janet Evanovich is the name of the author and Stephanie Plum is the main character. If you like a mix between Sandra Bullock and Julia Roberts, then these books are for you. Short synopsis: Stephanie loses her job as a lingerie buyer, and with nowhere else to turn, takes a job as a Bounty Hunter at her Uncle's bond company. She is so so funny and so so Italian. Her love interest jumps from man to man, but her main squeeze is Joe Morelli who she has known since childhood. I am only on book two (Two For The Dough) and there are fourteen of 'em. The first one in the series is called "One For The Money" by the way.

Topic C:

I am also in the middle of a Nicholas Sparks kick and recently finished a book called True Believer. Good love story if you are interested.

Topic D:

I MISS EVERY SINGLE ONE ON YOU GIRLS! I cannot wait to see you JD and Val. Only like 4 1/2 more weeks!!! And Kristin - you need to make a trip to Texas and I need to make a trip to California (Arnold Schwarzeneggar voice). I love ya'll!

Just a note

Hey Guys, I just added this playlist cuz I was goofing around. If you wanna add songs to it or whatever, email me and i will give you my password and username etc...peace out! Oh, yea, also...i've been reading this book, and it's just phenomenal. i don't know if i have told you about it, but it has vampires...and it's a love story. forgive me if i haven't mentioned it yet, but it's called Breaking Dawn and it is absolutely AMAZING!!

okbye! (JD posted this btw)...and can i also note how funny it is that in the 2 pics that we are all next to each other, i had to crop people out...just cuz they aren't in our little club. how cool that 4 years ago we basically knew just where to stand.

kbye (really).

Vampires, Vampires, Vampires!

So, if you liked Twilight. Which I already know all of you did.
Might I suggest for my first book recommendation, even if i've
mentioned it before...

The House of Night series by PC and Kristen Cast

It's a really good series about vamps in a completely different world
from the one that Stephenie Meyer had brought us into.... They are
very easy to read... I know because it made a whole week pass by like
nothing while I was waiting impatiently for Breaking Dawn.

The protagonist is a sixteen year old girl named Zoey. She's got a
great sense of humor and for the most part is just like every other
girl in high school until she gets Marked by a vampyre tracker. Yes,
that's how they spell vampyre. And then her life changes, in a way she
wasn't sure of, but came to realize it might have been what she was
looking for all along.

So there are three books out right now, the fourth book comes out at
the end of September and I really think you guys might enjoy it.
Especially if you like vampires as much as I do. Plus it's fun to
picture who you would want to play the characters in a movie or TV
show, should they make it into one.

Book 1 - Marked
Book 2 - Betrayed
Book 3 - Chosen
Book 4 - Untamed (release: September 23, 2008)

Whoo hoo!! My first recommendation!

The Beginning of a Great Thing.

Well, here is my first post. And I know that we all know what book we just ALL just read...but I figure the book or series that truly brought this blog about should be given the first blog.
So with that being are we supposed to do this? Do we write a mini book report? Do we have spoilers? or are they just 5 second recommendations to eachother???
Since I know we have all read this book...and we have been letting eachother know all of our favorite parts...I would just like to say how much I totally appreciate Stephenie for ending it the way she did...I mean, WOW. I've never been more happy, I didn't have to let go of a character because of a death...and I got to see my Romeo and Juliet stay together, forever...literally. I love it.
So y'all tell me how you think we should do this book club blog...and I will keep writing like I'm from Texas (<--- the y'all).
Love you twilight more :)
