'Twas the night before Christmas,
And all through the house,
A bored and book-starved Cam
"I have no good reads!" she shouted in anguish,
grabbing her jacket and boots in a spree,
Heading to Anderson's,
And adoring their tree.
Cam found a shelf
And rooted herself there,
As a trio of people
Walked in and browsed their ware.
She hunched over novels, Iron King, City of Bones,
When along came a hand,
Grabbing a book next to hers and saying, in a not-so-cheery-tone,
"I knew the author, we were classmates,"
Cam slowly glanced over,
At the book in a trio-members' hand,
Seeing a familiar flame,
Surrounded by a band.
The book was ornate,
As every book should be,
But there was something special about this book...
How Divergent could it be?
So, long story short, I went to Anderson's and was shopping for new blogging books, when in walked a group of people. They walked over to where I was, and I thought they were going to be all like, "EHRMAHGERD! IT'S CAM! SHE AND HER BEST FRIEND RUN A BLOG!" *faints*
No. They were more like,
*completely ignores the girl--me--next to them, and reaches for a copy of Divergent* "I knew the author. We went to high school together."
That made me almost melt on the inside! As weird as it was...then, I hardened up, when one of them asked, "Is it any good?"
"It's like Hunger Games. I think. Well, they're making it into a movie."
^^First lady's reply (Not like the POTUS' first lady, but...you know what I mean.)
I really wanted to yell:
"IT'S SO INCREDIBLY AWESOME! I DISCOVERED THAT BOOK HERE! WITHIN THE MONTH IT CAME OUT! AND CHOSE IT OVER LEGEND, SINCE I HAD A LIMITED AMOUNT OF FUNDS!"
I don't know why I chose it over Legend. Something compelled me to read it before anyone else...so I did. Now, everyone's buzzing about Divergent, and I'm all like, "Psssht. I read Divergent, like, last year."
I can't say that, however, without sounding like a crazed Directioner: "I WATCHED THEM ON X-FACTOR! I NOW KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT THEM! I WAS THERE FROM THE BEGINNING!"
(^If they ever read this: I bet you are great guys. But I'm not into all of the hype--technically, I should be the one starting it.)
Happy Holidays, from our virtual home to your--hopefully--real one,
Hay guys I just wanted to say Merry Chistmas. Sorry i couldn't blog yesterday I had absolutly no time. Also i wanted to say that Les Miz is THE BEST MOVIE EVER. Hope you guys had an awesome Christmas with awesome presents (mine included a new electric guitar!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Hay Guys it's Christmas Eve and in the near future, most of us will be opening presents and eating lots of food. well right now I'm going to tell just how much time 'til Christmas we have. I'm going to go by negatives so the numbers are until they get to zero just in case you were confused.
-49,970 seconds and counting
-833 minutes and counting

and 1 night
So as you might have heard the world is supposedly ending on 12-21-12 and TODAY IS THAT DAY!!!!!!!!!! Now, if you are one of those people who thinks that the planets will align and cause Earth's destruction on the Sun will explode, I totally respect your beliefs and I'm sorry if I insult you. I believe that the world will not end today because the Earth is supposed to have another 6 billion years until the atmosphere reverses and we go back to be like Mars, that is if we stop global warming (which I do believe in). Another thing people also say that the world is going to end because 12-21-12 is the last date on the Mayan calendar...I say that maybe if we hadn't like totally tried to eliminate the Mayans, they probably would have gotten a chance to FINISH THEIR DANG CALENDAR!!!!
Sincerely, Perri (have a happy D-Day)
UPDATE FROM THE BOTH OF US: WE SURVIVED! YEAH! (we knew that the world wasn't going to end, because the third Divergent novel hasn't been released, City of Bones and The Sea of Monsters haven't been viewed by millions of adoring fans, and we still haven't seen Le Mis yet.)
It's only because we've been making major changes. Not only has the layout changed of the blog, but also the color scheme (soon, I promise!). AAAND, in addition, I added some Goodreads stuff. *winkwink*
Keep reading, faithful and loyal blog-readers!
Your dictat--I mean, 1/2 of your entertainment,
After Elizabeth Hall is killed in a taxi cab accident she finds herself in a place called Elsewhere. Soon she learns that Elsewhere is a place dead people go to live, and they age backward until they are babies and eventually sent back to earth. Fed up with her new life, Liz tries to leave her old life behind and start a new one on Elsewhere.
This book is one of the best books I have ever read. I'm actually rereading it. Not to mention the ending is so sad it will make you cry. Gabrielle Zevin is really an amazing author, who wrote an amazing book.
This past month, Goodreads has been doing their annual 'Goodreads Choice Awards'. These awards are the best books in certain categories, and they receive instant fame and bragging rights!!
That sounds like a pretty good reason to start finding a publishing company that will publish my stories...
Veronica Roth has a lot to brag about: not only did her hit sequel to Divergent (respectively titled Insurgent) win her 'Best by a Goodreads author' (meaning that the author has a profile on Goodreads: Cassandra Clare was also up for grabs on that one), but also the 'Best Young Adult Fantasy' award! Good job Veronica!
While we're still in the YA genre, The Fault In Our Stars, by John Green, won 'Best Young Adult Fiction'! Awesome! I am yet to read this...I hear from Eliz--my sources that it may make me cry. Darn.
Also, Rick Rioridan won the 'Best Middle Grade and Children's'! His newest book, The Mark of Athena, won that for him.
And, to make myself feel warm, fuzzy, and gory, all at the same time: 'Best Graphic Novel or Comic' was won by The Walking Dead, Vol. something-or-other. Good job, Daryl and Rick. You make me feel happy to be catching up on season 1.
Hopefully I'll finish season 1 by the time the world will (not) end.
