great books

One of my most favorite things to do is relax in a comfy spot and read an engrossing book. I am a fast reader. . . well I guess you say I am a "really" fast reader. Seriously, I finished three Harry Potter books in one day.Yes, I do pick up every detail. Ask my mom or sisters, I bore them down with details that were not incorporated into the Harry Potter movies. There's pros and cons to speed-reading. Pro: I finish the book and get feeling of self-accomplishment.Plus, I know what happens. Con: I finish the book and now its over. Oh well. 
Anyways, I have just finished a trilogy called The Looking-Glass Wars by: Frank Beddor. It's a twist of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. Alyss, the main character, is battling to regain her proper place as queen while caught between two worlds:Wonderland and Earth. This book turns the whimsical story we all know into a fierce battle of fantasy and reality. I give this book five stars out of five. If you are looking for a good book to read, pick this one up, but beware; you'll never be able to put it down. I know, I know, everyone says that about books, but take my word for it. Link:The Looking Glass Wars Plus, they have awesome covers. :)
By the way, if you have a great book recommendation that you are dying to share, I would love to hear it. I love all kinds of books. (^v^)b

just draw

One of my favorite things to do is draw. Doodling is always fun, too. This book has some really cute pictures in it, such sweet little step-by-step instructions to follow. . .I never follow them though. I just draw. You could call me a copy-cat artist;if I can see something like it's right in front of me, I can draw it with the same details and shape. Anyways, when I can figure out how to scan my drawings, I will definitely post them. :) Click this link to check out this book:Illustration School: Let's Draw Plants and Small Creatures. Don't worry, the book is in English.

cute totes

Isn't this the cutest tote bag? I just love it! <3 Yes, this is one of my teen phases; obsessions over cute totes (especially hello kitty ones). The only downside is I need to convince my mom to buy it for me. If you need some good karma. . .or just bored, go on my mom's blog, comment, convince her to buy it for me. Hahahaha, I'm just kidding.

OMG! Welcome my first readers! This is my first time doing a blog so prepare for many changes over the days. In case you didn't read my profile, I am a homeschooled teen girl. I live in Virginia, USA. I love Hello Kitty, drawing, reading, watching movies and hanging out with my friends; pretty much your typical teenager except for some things. In my blog, I will include book reviews, art projects I did, pictures from vacations I went to, postcards i got, really good recipes and more. I would love to read your comments, like I said in my profile. If you have any good book recommendations, questions, etc., I would like to hear them. Thanks for reading my first post! XD Hope you guys like my blog!^.^
