Harry Potter chapter art! The chapter art is amazing. I love how simple but magical they seem. To me it's a great way of starting a chapter. I believe that it helps 'set the mood' for a chapter. If its a dark drawing, you're reading waiting for the darkness to being. If it was a funny one, you know there's a change you were going to giggle. I enjoy the chapter are in all the books. The art is well done and some how just fits perfectly into the Harry Potter world. For me the art in book one would have to be my favorite because its the start to everything. When looking at the art it makes you want to know more about this new world.

My Favorite Top Ten Gif about book
(So if you don't know what a gif is, its basically a moving photo, like the one below
 of the Harry Potter books.)  


1.) So I'm the kind of reader who loves the smell of books. Old or new....
2.)  I read every single day, if I don't get any reading in I can become a bit mean. (I don't mean to its just I loves to read)

3.) This is me, when I'm reading I'll be like, wait I'm almost done with this page, but I'll turn the page and keep reading... 
 4.) I do this when I go to the library or book store, one leads to two and then to three and so on. There is no such thing as to many books!
 5.)  Read a good book is the most simplest way to get a smile upon this face of mine...

 6.) 99.99% of the time when someone asks my what my favorite thing to do, get, or hobbies; the wold book will be there.
 7.) This is a question I, or 'Do you like books' is one of the first questions I ask people when meeting them for the first time....
 8.) I love reading because it takes me on an adventure, to new worlds, new people, place....
 9.) It may be rude but when I'm reading, and I'm at a really good part I hate being bugged....
 10.) So yeah, BOOKS ARE MY LIFE fits me......

22/05/2014 - Favorite Hogwarts Ghost 
 
Nearly Headless Nick, sir Nicholas! There was some many parts of the book that weren't put into the movie, that I was so hoping they would. The fangirl in me, love some many parts in the books that I would of loved to have seen come to life in the moves and not just in this head on mine. 

 

Review: Like Moonlight at Low Tide By Nicole Quigley

 

Like Moonlight at Low Tide By Nicole Quigley was published September 23rd 2012. Its 247 pages. 

Returns to her hometown of Anna Maria Island, Florida, Melissa Keiser knows that its wont be easy. She has mixed feelings on being back home. Part of her is happy, she has her old best friend, who's happens to be now dating one of the islands cutest guys. But so of she's happy to be back on the island. Living the island lifestyles. But Melissa is not looking forward to her old classmate, the old name calling, the way her life was. But she still can to seem to get passed or over the loved one she lost to suicide.

The characters are more then just people Nicole thought of. They all have more to them, they have layers, just like most people. I love the fact that she's relatabled but then the next she's not relatable one bit. Melissa would have to been one of my favorite characters in this story, not because she's a lead. But because of what she goes through. I enjoyed the way that the island has its own 'style'; this little bit od detail make the story better in its own way. Melissa also has problems with her family. I think that's a part that may will be able to relate to even if there family problems are different. There are may other characters I would love to talk about but I don't want to give to much away. But I do want to say that Nicole's writing style, to me, has a classic feel to it. Her style reminds me of books I use to read. I'm a hung si-fi, fantasy, kinds of story but I also love a good teen fiction book any day. This was a short story, so I took my time and read it slowly, but I could be more happier that I took time to read the amazing story.

May 20: Ten Books About Friendship



 1. Pretty Little Liars is one of the first books I think of when I hear the word friendship. I started reading them before the was a T.V. show and all and really liked them. (I love the T.V. show too) but thinking about those books; a strong part of them is based around the ups and downs of their friendships throughout the stories. Stories that have a strong friendship key to it, is something I seem to find in a lot in stories that I toss on to my TBR or must read list. 
2. Another book series about friendship that I got into was The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Yes, I did see the first movie before reading the books. But it was because of  the characters and the meaning behind the story that really made me want to read the stories. To fine out more about them. This is one I enjoyed because it wasn't just a plain old teen age girl story that show and told about problems. But had problems that not everyone goes through. But at the same time show many kind of problems that many teen girls do go through . 
3. There is also the story of Heaven High (East Lake Series #1)  This is one that I have fallen so in love with. I can sit here and tell you over and over why I love these characters, story plot, twist and so much more. But the part that pulled my in first was the blond between the two lead male characters.
Beau and Edgar. They are best friends, even though they are both from different life style, one has money while the other doesn't. I enjoy how in the story they play off each other as the try and protected Emma Havering. 
4. The next one of my Top Ten Books About Friendship would have to be the one and only... Gossip Girl (Gossip Girl #1) by
Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen. 
I read it during the summer, and like I said, fell in love. I read some more of her stories that summer as well but there something about this one the stuck with me and then popped right into my head when I read the topic for this week. There's many thing going on in the story death, baby, love and friendship. This one is a much read for me. 
6. So now, on to the next, and it is... P.S. Longer Letter Later (Elizabeth and Tara*Starr #1) by
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton.
Yes, I cried at the end of both the movie and the book. I love this story so much that I just don't know what more to put. If you haven't read it you should. It's one that you'll be happy you did. S.E. Hinton is a more the amazing writer. I love the friendship between Johnny and Ponyboy. 
8. A few left then we'll have hit all ten but first the next book on the list is... The Baby-Sitters Club (BSC) by
The Summer I Turned Pretty by Fisher boys.
10. It's the last one on my list and if you have been following my Top Ten Tuesdays you'll probably guessed it already. It is the Harry Potter series! For me a  huge part of the Harry Potter books was the friendship between the characters. It's a part that plays a role in the way the characters developed throughout all seven books. Reading about them and the adventures they went on is a part of me and as a reader I couldn't be happier with the seven books.
