Oh dear. I have to give my favorite book! Impossible! That’s like asking me what my favorite star is.

SO, I’m going to tell you ONE of my favorite books. I have several. *coughArtemisFowlcoughHarryPottercoughDragonsinourMidstcough*

The book is Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev. It’s so good and I absolutely love it. It’s about this girl, Beatrice Shakespeare Smith AKA Bertie who lives in a theatre. And the theatre is magical. I know what you’re thinking. A magical theatre? What is this? But it’s good. And the theatre is magical because the people that act are the actual characters. So. Good.

I’m going to stop raving about one of my favorite books and actually go read it. đŸ™‚
What’s one of your favorites? Can you even pick a favorite?

Here are some reviews on some latest movies/songs/books I’ve been watching/listening to/reading. I’m going to try and do this every week so eeennnnjooooy!!

MOVIE: She’s the Man Starring Amanda Bynes. Four out of five stars. **** I like it a lot, but there’s some swearing and other stuff that makes it a little uncomfortable. Amanda Bynes is a great actress and her + Channing Tatum = good chemistry. It’s really funny to see a girl-pretending-to-be-her-brother try and make it on a boy’s soccer team. Hahaha

BOOK(S): Mockingjay By Suzanne Collins. Four out of five stars. **** I know everyone hates it, but you really have to read it a second time before you can finally get the reasoning behind it. Though I did cry when my favorite character died. I’m zipping my mouth so the spoiler won’t be given out. I did hate it at first for said reason, but I like it now. Kinda.

Also, The Wind on Fire Trilogy by William Nicholson. Three and a half out of five stars. ***^ (I can’t do a half-star) It’s a really good, little-known series that is excellent, but it just seems too coincidental. You know what I mean. I still love it though.

(NOTE- My dad says he has never heard me say I hated a book and meant it, though I came close with Mockingjay.)

SONG: Dancing Crazy By Miranda Crosgrove. Three out of five stars. *** I can’t get it out of my head, so it was demoted to three stars. Usually a song stuck in someone’s head is a good thing, but for me, it just means I go on singing it and annoy either myself or the people around me. Plus there’s a part that’s a bit… unlikeable? I don’t know. I’m not too fond of it. But it’s a good song.

OTHER: Twelfth Night By Shakespeare. Three out of five stars just because I can’t read it! *** I’ve been using Sparknotes’ No Fear Shakespeare to help me ‘decode’ the original and it really helps. It’s decent so far and She’s the Man is based on it. (See review above.)

I’m obsessed with the Mentalist by the way. And Bones. And NCIS. I think that’s all. Let’s just say, I love crime/police shows. So all three are right up my alley.

Well, what have you been seeing/reading/listening to lately?
