The Sunday Times (8)

Hello and lovely Sunday to you! Welcome to The Sunday Times ~Every Sunday making its way~
"[Howl comes running out of the bathroom, screaming. His hair is now orange
Howl:
Sophie! You, you sabotaged me! Look! Look at what you've done to my hair! Look! 
Old Sophie: What a pretty color. 
Howl: It's hideous! You completely ruined my magic potions in the bathroom! 
Old Sophie: I just organized things, Howl. Nothing's ruined. 
Howl:
Wrong! Wrong! I specifically ordered you not to get carried away! 
[tragically
Howl:
Now I'm repulsive. 
[slumps into a chair
Howl:
I can't live like this. 
[starts sobbing, head in hands
Old Sophie: Come on, it's not that bad. 
[Howl's hair changes color to purple, then black
Old Sophie: You should look at it now, its shade is even better. 
Howl:
[inconsolable] I give up. I see not point in living if I can't be beautiful." 
- Howl's Moving Castle by Hayao Miyazaki

The ULTIMATE Book Tag

**PLEASE ENJOY MY IDIOTIC, EPIC PROFESSIONAL ANSWERS. TEE-HEE!** 

Got two gifts for you...yup two blogs to introduce to you!
First I saw this tag at Annie's blog @ In Love With Words and then I saw at Erika's blog @ Living for the Books. <3 (I seriously forgot to comment. *face palm* sorry guys, I did read your posts!)

------------------
1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?
Umm, unless the book makes me sick first! Ooo, you just got burned book. (don't literally burn, though, cause then I can't criticize you anymore)

2. Which author's writing style is completely unique to you and why?
A.S. King. Her book Please Ignore Vera Dietz (<3) is entirely different style to everything and it feels like she's a rebel to a book structure because her books (the ones I've read so far) just set their own rules, and I like it like that.

TO SURVIVE, THEY MUST WORK TOGETHER.

Raven is a Hex--a rare genetic hybrid of technology and humanity. She has managed to survive undetected by the CPS, a secret government agency whose sole purpose is to exterminate her kind. And for her, survival means working alone.

Wraith is her brother. He is street savvy and has the right moves to navigate the city's dark side. And he has a mission--to find their lost sister, who might also be a Hex.

Wraith convinces Raven to join him, and in search they uncover more than they bargained for. Together, they realize that there is more at stake than finding their sister.

They must defeat the CPS. Or die.

Fictional Boys (cause everything's better in books) vs. (the set back) REAL Boys

What type of boys that make me gush for them?
  • adorable > ///// <
    • he gets awkwardly shy
    • he blushes
    • he has a hard time saying anything embarrassing in someway  
  • has character/personality 
    • he has a backstory to him
      • no "perfect life"
      • he doesn't make everything seem easy
        • and he certainly makes it hard
    • be himself
      • and that doesn't mean he acts like a gang-sta, yo
  • NERDY!
    • ( . _ . )/ NERDS UNITE! \( . _ . )

Jellicoe Road

by Melina Marchetta
Pages: 422
Format: Paperback
Year pub: 2010
Publisher: Harper Teen
In this lyrical, absorbing, award-winning novel, nothing is as it seems, and every clue leads to more questions.

At age eleven, Taylor Markham was abandoned by her mother. At fourteen, she ran away from her boarding school, only to be tracked down and brought back by a mysterious stranger. Now seventeen, Taylor's the reluctant leader of her school's underground community, where annual territory war with the Townies and visiting Cadets has just begun. This year, though, the Cadets are led by Jonah Griggs, and Taylor can't avoid his intense gaze for long. To make matters worse, Hannah, the one adult Taylor trusts, has disappeared. But if Taylor can piece together the clues Hannah left behind, the truth she uncovers might not just settle her past, but also change her future.

Food Love: Leftovers

Since, there might still be Thanksgiving food stuffed in your fridge, and Christmas food in there somewhere, and maybe other leftovers before Thanksgiving and there might some from somewhere else too, along those lines.

Your fridge might look like this:
wait is that some Hummus  dip? I've been craving that!
