Book Satur--I'm not going to lie, it's Thursday.

Now that we have that out of the way, let's talk about something else. 'No, tell me, how was Linger?' you ask. OH MY GOODNESS!!! It was so amazing! All I'm going to say is that Maggie Stiefvater, I applaud you. As a matter of fact, I'm checking her blog right now. And...oh my goodness. She has the cover of Lament* and Ballad** in SERBIAN. If you don't know where serbia is, look it up. But, I have relatives in Serbia and I just got uber (that's right, uber) excited! I don't even know why. I think it's probably because every time I tell someone I'm from Serbia, they say: 'HUH???" or "Ahh...I see. and then turn around and say" "Where the h**l is Siberia?" So the fact that Maggie Stiefvater put up the cover on her blog---even though it's probably just because the cover is just so hilarious---I am so overjoyed!!! GAH! (That was me being me and expressing my awesomeness.)
So Blog, you think you can top that? Just kidding.

*One of the books Maggie wrote which I am about to read.
**Second book of Lament (*) Stiefvater's Website! Stiefvater's Blog!

GAAHH!!!, Ebony.

It's Been So Long...

Oh my goodness!  Blog, it's been so long since we've talked.  'Why so long Ebony?' you might ask.  The answer is that my life has been very hectic for the past few weeks.  Nothing big, just lots of little insignificant things. 
'Such as?' you might also ask because you are very disappointed in me.  First of all, I've had many quizzes and stressing tests that I've had to prepare for.  Also, I had three projects that I'm juggling and two of them are still not over with!  'Alright, that's something but it doesn't explain why you haven't written to me in over two weeks!' you say.  Yes, I agree.  There is no specific reason that I haven't written to you but one of the things that contributed to it was that I'm writing a book.  A book about anorexia.  And it's taking up quite a bit of my time because when a thought or idea pops into my head, I have to write it down, I can't just keep track of a million different ideas!  'Oh, how is your book coming along Ebony?'  Well it's going very well, thank you blog.  I've also been trying to keep my friends off my back.  You see blog, they're trying to push me into going to this teen dance thing.  Now, this is for 'cool' people.  Nerds like me DON'T LIKE going to those things.  You're saying 'well how do you know if you've never been to one?'  But the thing is blog, I have.  I've been to one of the teen dances.  Honestly, I WISHED I'D NEVER GONE!  Granted, I was sick at the time but I don't think that was the problem.  You see, the music was WAY too loud and it was three hours long of just sweaty people being sweaty and loud with each other in a really small room with really loud music.  Honestly, I'd rather be at a library or movie with my sister or friends.  So, now you see just a few reasons why it's been so long.  But we'll definitely chat soon, it's just that my library books are due back today so, bye!

Finally back to reality, Ebony

Little Women

As many of you already know, I am currently reading Linger by Maggie Stiefvater. It is so good! I'm at the part where Grace---you know what, I probably shouldn't spoil it. Sorry.
So yesterday I was just reading my way along when I realized OH MY GOODNESS! and I jumped. Thank goodness I was alone because people would have thought that I discovered a giant elephant walking out of my book. But of course I didn't. I just realized that I had absolutely no book to read after Linger until Forever comes out next summer! Agh! So I started scanning my bookcase for books that have just been sitting there forever or that I haven't got around to reading yet or any hand-me-down books.  
THE SECRET GARDEN, FAIREST, SKELLIG, BRIDGET JONES' DIARY, A LITTLE PRINCESS, TWILIGHT, HARRY POTTER SERIES, SHIVER, LITTLE WOMEN. Aha! Little Women! I read Little Women in grade five and my English teacher couldn't believe his eyes. Because the book is a classic and five hundred and twenty pages. This was right after he recommended a book that I had read in grade three. I absolutely loved Little Women and plan to read it again soon. But until then we shouldn't forget about Grace and the fact that she---Ebony, don't spoil the book! Sorry. Linger first then Little Women.
