Locke Vinetti is a high school junior, disenchanted and more than a little hostile. In fact for years hes had a lousy social life because of a problem he has with his anger-a force he calls "the venom". Ever since he was eight years old and a bit off a piece of classmates nose, hes been something of a loner. But all that is about to change when he foes out with his one friend, Randall, to meet some of his crew hanging out at Riverside Park. Because in addition to meeting his kindred spirit Casey- who has his own problems with his own kind of venom(or as Casey calls it the "black") Locke meets a spiket blue fairy haircut goth girl of his dreams(Renee) And if their relationship is going to work, he knows he has to rid himself od the venom once and for all. Not only does this book tell a story of whats happening around locke it also tells a story for what goes through his dreams and how he tries to deal with the venom.

My thoughts:
Venomous by Christopher Krovatin had already drawn me in with the book cover picture, everything about this book just stuck out to me, the title of the book, the pics in the book and the summary is like nothing Ive ever read before. Venomous is an amazing book because it shows all the emotions and how hard Locke is trying to fight those emotions. He knows that the venom has caused him and the peoplpe he loves so much problems, that he tries everything to overcome it. Krovatin was able to make such strong connections so that the reader can understand what Locke has to go through, I just love it.

What I love even more is that there's a romance going on through out the book, and like every book the girl is able to help the guy overcome all of his issues. But with Venmous that only worked out for so long and Locke has to find away to fix the course of action that he has take.

Venmous is a book that every teen would have an easy time relating to with having trouble controlling your anger, having a hard time making new friends, expressing your feelings to someone that you shouldnt love or just the life that Locke has. This book is an amazing book with everything that a teen(mostly me) could want in a book.
If you havent read this book... what are you waiting for!! go out and buy the book, steal it from a friend or go to a public library just go and read this book!

I am so happy right now!!! I got to leave school at 12 cause I don't have a 6th period!! Anyways besides having to take a quiz first thing in the morning I was able to get the new Skillet CD!! I love all of their songs because they annoy the shit out of my mom(don't ask why) and the lyrics are just amazing!

here's the lyrics for Awake and Alive:
I'm at war with the world and they
Try to pull me into the dark
I struggle to find my faith
As I'm slippin' from your arms

Its getting harder to stay awake
And my strength is fading fast
You breathe into me at last


I'm awake and I'm alive
Now i know what I believe inside
Now its my time
I'd do what i want cause this is my life
her, right now

I'll stand my ground and never back down
I know what I believe inside
I'm awake and I'm alive

I'm at war with the world cause I
ain't never gonna sell my soul
Ive already made up my mind
No matter what I cant be bought or sold

When my faith is getting weak
And i feel like giving in
You breathe into me again

Waking up waking up

In the dark
I can feel you in my sleep
In your arms I feel you breathe into me
Forever hold this heart that I will give to you
Forever I will live for you

For my favorite song: The last night

You come to me with scars on your wrist
You tell me this will be the last night feeling like this
I just came to say goodbye
I dint want you to see me cry, I'm fine
But I know its a lie


This is the last night you'll spend alone
Look me in the eyes so I know you know
I'm ever where you want me to be
The last night you'll spend alone,
I'll wrap you in the arms and I wont let go,
I'm everything you need me to be

Your parents say everything is your fault
But they don't know you like i know you they dont know you at all
I'm so sick of when they say
Its just a phase you'll be OK your fine
But i know its a lie
the last night away from me

The night is so long when every things wrong
If you give me your hand i will help you hold on


I wont let you say goodbye
I'll be the reason why
The last night
Away from me

If you want to listen to these songs just go to YouTube for the last night here's the link
for Awake and Alive here's the link
Hope you like skillet, if not...well you just weird

Im really not going to learn anything in english

Freshman year and sophomore year I had an awesome english teacher, but as soon as Junior year came it all went down hill. I had this short teacher name Mrs. Uecke which is pronounced as IKI, im not kidding about that. In her class all we did was read short stories, get tested on the story and then do the same thing over and over again. It was so fricken boring that i slept most of the time and still got an A or B in that class(matters on how willing i was to actually do her work). Now its my SENIOR year and I was so happy that I have a new english teacher but it turns out that shes like a million times worse!!! This new teacher Ms. Tomita is crazy as all crazy teachers come. On the first day of school she somehow came late to my period 5 english class, and it took us like 20 minutes just to take attendance just because she kept on talking about herself after every other name. Yesterday was the most hilarious day of all, for some reason when we were taking about the book Beowulf she asked about Harry Potter and how to say Voldemort... It took me and my friends like 6 tries before she could actually say the name correctly and when my friend Micheal wakes up and listens to the conversation Ms Tomita asks what Harry Potter is about and Micheal says its about a whole bunch of black guys who are trying to be friends with each other. I swear to god that she believed him with all her heart, and she couldnt tell that micheal was being sarcastic. My friend Mei Qi sat in our class this one time, she has english at the community college but she didnt want to leave yet cause it was raining so she hung out in my class. Mei Qi came to my class maybe on the 6th day of school and my teacher didnt realize that Mei Qi hasnt been in our class until that day.
Ms Tomita is a cool teacher and all but man she is so stupid sometimes and its driving me crazy!!! I thought I was going to actually learn something this year but for what Ive seen so far Im not going to learn anything at all...

Hope everyone else gets lucky and has a teacher who will teach them something...useful

Fire is a prequal to Graceling and takes place thirty years before Katsa and Po's story. It is also set in an entirely different land a certain character from Graceling makes an appearnence in Fire, other than that one character the story is differnet from Katsa and Po's. Fire is a monster, a human monster and the last of her kind. In her homeland the Dells there are monsters ranging from mosquitos to raptors and they all have one thing in common, there incomperable beauty that every man and women has a desire for. Buts that not all every monster in the Dells has some capability to control the minds of those around them, and there are those in the Dells who have built a strong mind to avoid being taken over. With the ability to control those around her and her beauty she inspires fear, hatred and longing. Fire is the one thing that everyone longs for in the Dells, Fires father was the old kings most trusted advisor, the man who lead to his death and the man responsible to the current state of the land. With her amazing gift she is saught after by the King of the Dells to help stop an oncoming war.

My opinion:
I absolutely love Graceling and knew that Fire would be just as great, but man was I wrong this book was ten times better than what I expected. I would just read the book every opportunity I had to read this book, and school started the same week I got this book so most of my teachers think that I dont pay attention in class....which is not a good thing, everytime i actually try to pay attention my teacher gives me the stink eye. But its not my fault I just wanted to read about Fire, Brigan and Archer, and the list goes on. The characters were amazing and the way Kristin Cashore writes just engulfs you with how amazingly beautiful their world is and how complex everything is. Fire was yet another kick ass girl who was able to evolve into something more than she ever thought she might be, Fire was able to grow out of the cruel shadow that her father had created and become a hero in the Dells. Fire was an amzing book and character, the romance in the book is breath taking, the action leaves you guessing and the mystery is something that cannot be missed. Kristin Cashore has written yet another amzing book but in my eyes and mind Graceling will always have a bigger part of my heart.

Gracling by Kristin Cashore was fricking Amazing!!!

In a world where people are born with an extreme skill called a Grace are feared and exploited, Katsa carries the burden of a skill that even she despises: the Grace of killing. She lives under the command of her Uncle Randa, King of the Middlums, and is expected to execute his dirty work, punishing and torturing anyone who displeases him.
When she firsts meets Prince Po, who is graced with combat skills, Katsa has no hint of how her life is about to change.
She never expects to become prince Po's friend.
She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away... a secret that could destroy all seven kingdoms with words alone.

What I thought:
You have no idea how much I love this book, there was everything that a person could ask for! Death defying adventure, an amazing romance, a mesmerizing world like nothing else youve ever heard, and characters that no one can ever forgot all rolled together in one amazing kiss ass book!! Graceling is the first book written by Kristin Cashore and it is absolutely extraordinary, she has been able to write a novel that shows how determined a person can be to prove themselves to the world. Katsa has never really known her place but over time she was able to find a place where she exactly belongs and she has discovered what she truly can be. I absolutely love Katsa and Po their relationship throughout the book was something that I could just scream for joy, both of them are the strongest most determined characters and make the power couple of all the books I've ever read. Move over Edward and Bella cause here comes Katsa and Po, those two can kick anyones butts no questions asked!
Kristin Cashore was able to treat readers with a compelling story that will suck you in from the very first paragraph and leaves you wanting more and more. Cashore was able to make incredible believable characters with depth that can relate to the older generations and younger generations.
If you have yet to read this book then I suggest that you go out and buy this book NOW! The next book comes out in October, its called Fire and its a prequal to Graceling.

First day of school

You know what sucks?...having to go to your first day of school early. I start school at 7:30 but today I went to School at like 7 am trying to move my classes around so that I dont have a free period, my counselor doesnt come until like 725 when A LOT of us start at 7:30 so we all sign up to make an appointment, Im third on the stupid list and I dont even get called in at all. I have to wait in line for like 20 minutes only for him to have to tell me that I cant move any of my classes around because its my english class. So with the gap my schedule would have been:

  1. Math
  2. Entrepreneurship
  3. Economics
  4. Japanese 4
  6. English

If I was able to move my english up it would have:

  1. Math
  2. Entrepreneurship
  3. Economics
  4. Japanese 4
  5. English

I would have been able to leave school at like ONE o clock everyday or earlier on some days!!! Im stuck in school until like 2 now.

I am so pissed off right now, because of all the cut backs in our school there are a lot less teachers are more students then ever before in each class. Last year in my english there was like 18 of us and this year theres 32.

Senior year is suppose to be the best year, but all I have so far is crowded as hell classes, a gap in my schedule, no car to bring to school and a teacher who wont stop talking about herself. So i am hoping that things get better soon...

Stealing Heaven

Stealin Heaven by Elizabeth Scott was amazing, I think this is the third book that Ive read from her and all of them are amazing!!

Danielle and her mom are proffesional thieves, and its the only life that she has ever known. When her mom decides that they should go to a place actually called Heaven, she figures it gonne be the same as all of the other places. Do the research, steal whatever they need and leave town.
But as soon as she reaches the small town, everything is different, she meets Gregwho has a troubled past and is a genuine cop, Danielle knows she shouldnt get to attached to him but its just so hard. Then theres Allison who may turn out to be her first real friend.
As things go horribly wrong she must chose the life shes always wanted or the life that shes known her entire life

My opinion:
This book was easy to relate to in so many ways, Danielle just wants more with her life, but there is always something in her way...her heart. Shes been raised since she was young to steal things, all she wants is to have a place she can call home.But her mom doesnt want that, and Danielle loves her mom and doesnt want to leave her or dissapoint her. Stealing Heaven was amazing on so many levels, it was easy to read in one sitting, and just the way Elizabeth Scott writes it keeps you wanting more and guessing what might happen next.
