I am a reader, I feel like I always have been. I am constantly surrounded by books in both my personal and professional worlds.
I have read excessively since the second grade. I have attempted, again and again, to keep a list of the books I've read and how I felt about them but so far have been unsuccessful. This is an attempt to keep track of the books I'm reading, and my thoughts about them. My goal is to publish at least one review a week (no promises though). Wish me luck!
*Note, while I will try to avoid major spoilers, I sometimes won't be able to help it.

I Need More Time Thursday: "Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have)" by Sarah Mlynowski
"2 girls + 3 guys + 1 house - parents = 10 things April and her friends did that they (definitely, maybe, probably) shouldn't have.
given the opportunity, what sixteen-year-old wouldn't jump at the
chance to move in with a friend and live parent-free? Although maybe
"opportunity" isn't the right word, since April had to tell her dad a
tiny little untruth to make it happen (see #1: "Lied to Our Parents").
But she and her housemate Vi are totally responsible and able to take
care of themselves. How they ended up "Skipping School" (#3), "Throwing a
Crazy Party" (#8), "Buying a Hot Tub" (#4), and, um, "Harboring a
Fugitive" (#7) at all is kind of a mystery to them.
hilarious and bittersweet tale, Sarah Mlynowski mines the heart and mind
of a girl on her own for the first time. To get through the year, April
will have to juggle a love triangle, learn to do her own laundry, and
accept that her carefully constructed world just might be falling apart .
. . one thing-she-shouldn't-have-done at a time."
