 My resume
Maddy starr is a 16 year old  high school student who is forced to move to her grandmothers unicorn infested house after her parents divorce all Mary wants is to go back to her old school in boston and hang out with her old friends but sadly her mother doesn't have the same thoughts so Maddy is forced to go to school filled with aberzombies and what she thinks a school with no diversity at all.On her sixteenth birthday her dad sends her a game shes benn wanting to play for a while called fields of fantasy were she meets SirLeo.Who is this sir leo and will things get better ?


well were to start as I am a fan of drawing and manga this book apealed to me personally. The book gamer girl was well written it was one of those book were you have to read about 50 pages to get into it but once you do you get can't help but care for the caracthers.It is also a book that mostly likely will associate to stuff you may have experienced yourself such as the stuggles of high school ,finding true friends,standing up for yourself, being true to yourself the list goes on.The book was well written and i would sugest you read this book if you are  fan of video games and or manga because the do talk about it alot though someone who likes school life stories or romance would probably really enjoy this book to.

   the aspect of a virtual relasionship was very interesting and you could really see the romance between Alorra and SirLeo there was some romace but i would of liked a bit more romance personnaly but overall the romance is very lovely ^_^. Theres was also alot of forshadowing in this book and sometimes the answer to the questions are a bit too obvious but not so ovbious that theres no point in reading the books anymore if you get what i mean by that.In gamer girl Maddy starr the main caracther is struggling alot in this book the pressure of her parents divorce the bulling at school the feeling of having no one there for you.Maddy escapes this feeling with drawing and playing video games i thought that the concept of this story was very good overal a great read.XD

first post !!!!

Hello readers of this blog! First of all, thanks for reading this blog since this is my first blog of many more. I shall explain a few things.

1.Why I decided to make a blog: Well, my blog is mostly to review books. To say I read alot would be an understatement. I love to read and love giving reviews about the books I have read, and would love to share my opinions with whoever reads this blog (btw if you are reading this right now THANK YOU ). Umm that's mostly it.

2.I have obviously read many books before I started this blog and I may or may not review those books, but I do promise to try to review every book I read from now on ^_^ .

Ok, now on to the actual first official post

Yesterday, at the main library in Ottawa, there was an event called "Get Loud with Lesley Livingston". This activity was part of the first ever teen author week. Along the week, there are many authors that you can meet for free. Yesterday it was Lesley Livingston, author of "Wondrous Strange" and "Darklight". It started by her talking a bit then followed by a short reading of Wondrous Strange and Darklight. We spent more time discussing Wondrous Strange than Darklight because some people haven't read Darklight yet. I admit, I am one of those people, but I bought Darklight yesterday and am already loving it.

As you might know, the third and final book in this series is coming out soon (I have the count down clock on the side if you haven't seen it yet). The last book of this trilogy is "Tempestuous" and Lesley brought the ARC (advanced readers copy). After a bit of begging she read a little bit of the book to us. Like I said, I haven't read Darklight yet, but for those who have you will probably understand it more than me. Basically, Sonny is in a train and he doesn't really know were he's going. Then, this water creature asks him if he wants to get off at her stop because she's lost too and would'nt mind the company. That's all. But Lesley kind of tortured us by reading the last phrase of the chapter (I think it's chapter 2). I don't remember the actual words (sorry) but it was about how Sonny never thought he would die in such a stupid way ... I know intense stuff ._. After Lesley took some questions, there weren't that many questions, I asked a question and two more people did too.

After she finished talking, there was a book signing while some local bands played, hence the get loud part.  Anyways that was pretty it. All I can say is that it shows that Lesley Livingston is a performer. She is hilarious on stage and has a different voice for every character in her reading. It makes me want to listen to the audio books. She told us that she is currently working on recording Tempestuous and she says it is very hard to record an audio book. I can understand that talking non stop with different voices, from 10am to 6pm, must be hard.To continue on my previous thoughts, Lesley Livingston is a fun and very nice person. Meeting her in person just make me like the books even more. To conclude this long blog, I suggest you read Wondrous Strange.
