Just a Moment.

     Just a moment.  That's all I have right now.  Ever since Friday morning I've been going.  Finals all day during school- which I passed with flying colors by the way.  I have been home since Friday morning.  I spent the weekend with a very near and dear friend of mine.  I met people left and right Saturday and Sunday.  Today we went to his home and rode four wheelers and visited another friend.  And then I was taken to town to spend a few hours another friends house until one of my favorite people in the world could pick me up and take me home.  Our friend tagged along and then we had a good hour and a half visit until they left and now I'm writing a post at 9 o'clock at night  because I haven't have a moments rest until now.  Feel special, I'm spending it talking to you.  I have to get up at 3:30 tomorrow morning and then leave at 4:30 that morning for a school trip to an amusement park.  Feel special.

P.S.- I lit my face on fire during chemistry class.

     I've come to the conclusion that I can't pull a post out of my ass everyday about a book.  It gets a little confusing when you're posting about books that you've previously read while you're reading a completely different book.  So in the end the post about books will be not on a daily basis.  That's to much for me.  Especially right now with finals coming up.  One more week and then I'll be at King's Island for summer break.  Two more weeks and I'll be in Florida.  Three more weeks and I'll be in sweet sweet Texas where I can absorb books by the dozen.  But in the time between I start a book and finish a book I'll post amusing pictures or random thoughts.

     Sound nice?  It better because you're not going to get much more from me.

     In the mean time enjoy this picture:

It's Been a While.

     I have been super busy with the final weeks of school and hadn't had time to read much and so I didn't exactly have anything to post.  But it being the standardized test week I've been able to catch up and finally get to something that's been sitting on my bookshelf for several months now.  What could it be? Hm... I wonder...

     It's Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.

     Did you know birds can time travel?  I didn't either until I read this book.  The story takes you through the normal everyday life of Jacob Portman, the grandson of a Polish Immigrant who lived a miraculous life.  The story takes sudden turn to the paranormal when his grandfather Abe calls sixteen-year-old Jacob at work, hysterical that something is after him and he can't get into his gun cabinet because Jacob's father hid the key for his safety.

     Ever read a book where they describe someone and you wish they included a picture of said person?

     Ransom Riggs was so kind as to place pictures throughout the story when he introduces a new peculiar child to Jacob's life.

      This probably seems vague and uninteresting, but this is one of those times where I just don't want to give anything away. Please, just take my word for it when I say it's worth it.

      I have come to the absolute conclusion that all biographies are dry.  I don't care if I haven't read every biography in the world, they are all boring.  Every single one of them.  I don't care how close minded that sounds, it's my opinion.  I read George W. Bush's biography- I know, I know- and let me tell you, that was one of the most boring things I have EVER read.
     I've even read a biography on a fictional World of Warcraft character- STILL unbelievably dry and boring.
     And yes I'm aware that only two biographies should turn me off of them forever, buuut they have.  So. Boring. Dry. Boring. Dry. Boring. Dry. Someone dies and I cry. Repeat.
