Reading Skills (of Which I Seem to Have None)

So, I said back in January, way way back at the beginning of 2011, that I was going to reread the Susan Cooper books. And, surprise surprise, I never did. I am such a terrible ready person. I can't believe that I never even finished that series! They are such awesome books.

So, as soon as I am done with the the Harry Potter series (which I really shouldn't be reading, seeing as I have already read them 20 some odd times) I am determined to read The Dark Is Rising! I will at least read Silver on the Tree, which I have been working on for over a year. The problem is that the print is too small... A huge disturbance to the mind...

Maybe I should get it on the Kindle. That could help with the font size... 

Love of My Own Room

As most of my readers probably know, I have shared a room with my sister Mary Margaret for as long as I can remember. I have also wanted my own room for as long as I can remember.

Unfortunately, I will most likely not have my own room until Mary Margaret goes to college in a couple of years. I can't wait, no offense to MM. However, in this past week that Rebecca has been away in Connecticut, I have been in her room. A lovely place to be by all means, with its paint splattered cement floor and the bed arranged so that every night my dogs fall off.

I have been enjoying myself so much in there. :) I have been reading SO much Harry Potter, it is unbelievable! I really think I'm going to finish all of them before the last movie comes out...

I love having my own room! I can't wait until I get a permanent room...

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

This amazing book by J. K. Rowling is my favorite of the series, mainly for Doctor Who related reasons. But it really is a fantastic book. My favorite for more reasons than Dr Who...

I won't tell you to read this book, because chances are, you've already read it at least once. But I will tell you to read it again. 

Night of the Humans

Another Dr Who novel I've read, not the best books of course. Terribly written, the lot of them. Of course, I could write one and it would be fantastic...

This book by David Llewellyn is a pretty interesting read, but definitely not as interesting as Peacemaker. Only for true Dr Who fans is this book. It's good if you're looking for something to read at night, and have nothing better to read. 

Toe Injuries

So, last night, as I was writing my book, the toenail on my big toe tore. As I lifted it onto the chair to examine the blood, the computer chair rolled back onto my other big toe. Massive pain all around... It took a couple seconds to get my toe untangled from the wheel.

My poor feet. The endure so much... If I had photographs, I would post them. It doesn't look that bad, just very very sore. Thought I'd tell the world this latest story of grossness on Grosse Pt. 

Half Moon Investigations

Ah, another great work of Eoin Colfer! This is a fabulous book, perhaps not as good as the Artemis Fowl series and The Wish List, but still a hilarious piece of literature.

Fletcher "Half Moon" Moon is a character well worth reading about, with his underage detective skills. Eoin Colfer has done an another amazing job telling the story in painstakingly great perfection, from the girl's club, les Jeunes Etudiantes, to the mystery giant. An excellent and well told tale.

The Wish List

Another amazing book by Eoin Colfer, eh? Well, I have to say that it's one of the best. Possibly even better than one or two of the Artemis Fowl series. Now you know you have to read it. Well, you should actually listen to the audio book, because the reader is amazing.

This book is hilarious, exciting, and very well written. It's so good, I pretty much can't describe it. But it is pretty darn awesome. So read it, or, if you can, listen to it. It will affect your mood in a good way. 

Long time, no public writing

Ah, it has been so long since I've written my blog. I'll have to work hard these next few days, I have so much to write about!

Well, not really. Because I have been writing. I've been writing at least 750 words a day for the last month. I write a lot. I am so busy pursuing my career that I haven't spared a thought about blogging. But at least I have been exercising my talents, and not wasting my time,w ell, not all my time, anyway, on computer games and rereading page turners.

I've been writing my book a lot in the past week. Roughly three pages a day is my goal, which, of course, I do on And that is coming along brilliantly.

The topic of the hour. Doctor Who. Yes, yes, I know you're all dreading this. But I can't help it. I don't understand how anybody could not sit down for an episode and not love it within the first two minutes. But alas, the first seven episodes of series six are over. And they are all amazing! Oh, I am so excited... I cannot wait to watch the last six come autumn!

All the important news has been shared. And so I am finished.
