Books, Glorious Books…

My mother believes that I only read books on vampires. Only vampires, no other odd creatures in the mix. It is this belief that made her go out and buy 5 books for me.

These being:

Admittedly, the latter is not a vamp book.  I have already read the Meyer novella, when it was free on the internet. I am yet to even begin on the Vampire Academy books, but I now own the last one.

I don’t like not having the entire series. I might be okay with it if I have the first few books, but otherwise no siree. Really, having the last book sucks. Now I need to track down the five other books before Last Sacrifice so I can read it.

My mother also can’t differentiate between young adult books and adult books. Hence the Undead and Uneasy.

Anyway, my plan is to leave school early tomorrow to return to the shop she bought the books from, because the reason she got them in the first place was not only in an effort to try to show me that she doesn’t mind my head being filled with dead things, but because the books were super cheap.

Also, as mentioned in my last post, I joined the other library. Hooray! I also bought The Named by Marianne Curley, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, Juno of Taris by Fleur Beale and Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey. So I’ve been pretty much cashing in on books lately. Which is quite odd. Mostly due to the fact that my entire stock f books comes from the library the majority of the time. Another thing; I HAVE LOST MY LIBRARY CARD! No idea where it is, which is a bummer because there are books waiting for me. So I want to kind of coerce the librarians into giving me a new card.

Okay, I’ve ranted the socks off you enough. Back to snoozing whilst watching Daria. Hooray!

Apologies and Fluff

Oops.

Okay, so I haven’t been all that attentive to my blog lately. I could list things that caused my mutterings on books to take the back seat, but some other time perhaps.

Now, I need to share my grand plan of bringing more books to me!

I join another library!! There’s one right on my bus route, with more books than my local library! This is groundbreaking stuff!

The thing is, I need to convince a parent to come along with me, because I’m under 18. Why the library needs a parental signature and everything is unclear. I don’t really care though.

So I plan to tempt my mother to go op shopping, because the library is down the road from the op shop. Mother likes op shops. I like libraries. Win, win win!

In other news, I need to get to a Borders before all their stock is gone, since they’ve gone bankrupt or something, I didn’t really follow what happened specifically. But it means cheap books.

I’m also quite sick at the moment, and have a really annoying cough. But I’m on school holidays. And I have holiday homework. Mostly for my art subjects. Meaning that for one subject I have to draw apples and pears, and in another I  need to research Christian Dior. Woo! Fun homework at last!

And last night, I could not sleep. At all. So I finished reading all the books in my pile, including Entice by Carrie Jones. I really liked it, and will put the series on my wishlist. The book made me feel like travelling.

Now to go spend my internet time downloading Daria. #fangirlingovertrentlane
