Mini-Challenge

    as part of the Wrapping Up 2011 Readathon YA Bookmark is hosting a challenge [Thank you so much for Hosting!], and it is to make a sentence using books.

    Here are mine! I made two because I used a little bit of extra help to create one of them and I'm not sure it that cheating....  they are both cheesy but, Oh well, here they are!

    If I stay, take me there between here and forever.
    Photobucket

    If I stay, don't stop now. Take me there between here and forever, before I fall for someone like you.
    Photobucket

    and I also made one with a Courtney Summer and Tabitha Suzuma, it said: Some Girls Are Forbidden but it seemed a bit lame so I just stayed with the cheesy ones x) but hey, at least I tried. [It was not an easy task]Source URL: http://megalotusfd3.blogspot.com/2011/

The Dusty Bookshelf Challenge 2012!

    Dusty Bookshelf Challenge
    I know, I know, I KNOW, I've signed up to a thousand challenges already! but meh, I probably won't finish half of them, so I'll at least have fun signing up.

    The idea of this challenge is to basically be able to say [in Jessica's words] "look at my bookshelf and say unequivocally and without exception, “I’ve read all those books.”"

    The Fist thing to do is see how many books we have in our Bookshelf that we have to read *Goes to count*


    Holly Mother of God. 95 Books. 95 BOOKS. 95 DUCKING BOOKS. O_O 

    Yeah, that's my face.
    I Quit. I quit and I haven't even started this challenge.
    Look at them. 95 Books:


    and This Is You after you see that I have not read Divergent, The Hunger Games and Delirium [Among Others]
    You are all plotting my death. and you haven't even seen the e-books.



    Guess I'm level Grungy – Read 20+ books

    as for the book that has more time there, it would be a year and a half.
    Wow, in a year and a half I managed to NOT read 95 Books.
    O_O

    Organizing Upcoming Reviews

     My camera hates me at the moment and it is refusing to cooperate and I can't show you my planner :(
    The idea of this challenge is to be organized. I personally don't like using google docs or stuff online because I always, always forget to check them. I also tried with the calendar in my ipod and alarms and such and I still forget. so I go old school and use a planner and post-its :3

    since I have no camera I will describe: on the back of my door I have like a thousand post-its with all the books I must read/review. they are in different colors depending on the need and such.

    Blue: must buy
    Yellow: must review [Netgalley]
    Pink: must review
    Green: simply must read asap.

    and there's my planner, which has marked all the day in which my galleys disappear and blogtours and everything :3

    Book Briefs

    I am a 2L at Florida State Law School. I spend most of my time reading and studying law. In law school I have to write case briefs for all the cases I read. Here, I get to write book briefs. A much better (and more fun) use of my time.

    The Interview :D!

    1.-In Between Writing and Reading what do you like to do?
    I love to hang out with my two Dachshunds, Harry and Ron, and when I am away at school I like to play trivia and hang out with my best friend and sister.

    2. Convince me to join your blog twitter style. 140 Characters or less. GO!
    YA book reviews, blog tours, and giveaways- oh my! Plus some ramblings from yours truly. What is not to love?


    3.- A TV Show. A Movie. A Song.
    Storage wars. Inception. Say anything by Kate Voegele

    4.-What question would you like to be asked in an interview?
    ooh good question!!

    Q. What is something that people would be surprised to learn about you?
    A. I LOVE quotes! I used to keep word documents full of my favorite quotes and whenever I would come across a new quote that I liked I would add it. I also used to follow quote "blogs" (although they were more like tumblr) and I would spend A LOT of time just scrolling through and reading quotes.

    5.- If a certain someone came out from under a rock and asked you for the Best Book Recommendation you could give, what would you recommend?
    Oh man, It is a toss up between The Hunger Games and Harry Potter. I think I will have to go with Harry Potter. (how long have they been under this rock??)

    6.- Now the Holiday Question: if you could create a Book Related Holiday, what would you call it and what would we do?
    National Share a Story Day. I would have people either donate books or go to their local library and give book recommendations to kids that didn't think reading was for them (or kids/teens that just wanted some new books to read)

    7.- and now a detailed description of your Blog :)
    My blog is called Book Briefs, named after the case briefs I make for my law school classes. I review (mostly) YA books, and host as many giveaways as I can. I love to meet new book lovers so come on by and say hi. I always try to respond to comments and follow back if you leave a link. :)
