10 Day You Challenge: Four Books

So, for some reason the last two weeks I've had NOTHING to post on my blog. I think I need some new adventures or something or other. Anyways, I am excited about this weeks post because I LOVE reading. Its one of my favorite thing to do. So I have a bit of books that I love and would be willing to read over and over again. So picking just four is going to be hard. 
Well, I hope everyone has a great week. 




1.
To Kill A Mockingbird 
Harper Lee
So, I read this in high school and thought it was amazing. 

A few years later, I was at chapters skimming the book shelves for a good book to read and saw the a special edition of To Kill A Mockingbird and bought it and re-read. I still love and maybe will read again soon. 




2. 
Disgrace
J.M Coetzee
In grade 10 english class I had to pick a novel from a list and write a book report and five minute presentation for the novel of my choosing. The first novel I read was the memoirs of a geisha and DESPISED it. 

and then my second book I chose was Disgrace. I had never heard of the author and just kinda picked because I didn't know what else to pick. 

I did not regret it one minute. Its a great book! 







3.
Harry Potter
J.K Rowling
I know some people out there are haters. And people object because of the magic and darkness of the books but she did a great job of creating a universe and story that continued for SEVEN books. I think I read some of the them twice. If she wrote another book I wouldn't hesitate to read it. 



4. 
The Lovely Bones
Alice Sebold 
If I ever need to murder someone this book taught me how to do it leaving no trace behind. After I read this book I think I recommended it to EVERYONE! 

Got some of my friends to read it, also lent it to a friend and never got it back. Now, if only I could remember which friend! 

If you haven't read it, READ IT!  





Other Recommendations:
anything by Jodi Picoult, Nicholas Sparks, Sophie Kinsella, Jane Austen, Emily Griffin, Marian Keyes.
I also liked the 12th Night by Shakespeare. 
I also enjoy Calvin & Hobbes and Archie comics. 
I will also be trying to complete Jane Eyre! and the rest of the Hunger Games trilogy.

Un

Chinese. 
Not all Chinese. Specifically a place in London called Dragon Gate.

Fashion Weekend: Long skirts and weird smiles.


I have loved none but you. You alone have brought me to Bath. For you alone I think and plan. Have you not seen this?  Miss Elliot, I can bear this no longer. You pierce my soul. I'm half agony, half hope. Unjust I may have been. Weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it eight years ago.

Long skirts make me feel romantic.

Don't Mind my Face, Just Look at the Clothes and Adventures.

I have come to very sad conclusion that I'm not very photogenic. And it sucks because all these pictures would be so much better if I just didn't look d-u-m-b. I really hate my face, I mean I love my face, but I hate my face in pictures. Its probably because my face is chubby and it looks chubby-ER(do not correct my spelling, I know!) on camera. 
I need to do something about that I think. 

Anywho,
as most of you know I've been sick the last week, so my sister in law wanted to visit this cafe and my brother decided to take her. I was going to stay home and just hang out because I didn't  feel so hot but she told me "hot chocolate might be good for you, lets go!"
so who can refuse hot chocolate really?
so we went on a small adventure that day and decided to take outfit pictures and pictures of the small cafe.
Enjoy! 
Like I said, Don't mind my face. Not my best day!















This face is priceless. I laughed at myself. I beat you all to it!

10 Day You Challenge: Seven Wants.


It's TUESDAY again!  
*(Small Dance)* 

I was sitting at Applebee's yesterday with a couple of my friends and we were talking about blogging. You may know Cindy and Sarah. (if you don't, check 'em out
Anyways,
I was telling them how much I love Tuesdays and how this week it was seven wants. I'm very excited, I think I've been thinking about it all morning!

Seven
To be healthy. I've been sick for about a little over a week. And its driving me nuts. Stuffy nose, ear aches, sneezing, itchy eyes and headaches! I think this is my biggest want at the moment. 

Six
These shoes.

Five
a tour of England.


Four
I wouldn't mind this kind of body

Three
Clear skin. I've been dealing with breakouts lately and its crazy. I mean I'm 22 years old, isn't this teenage problems? 

Two
Singing lessons. I am now part of my church choir and we sing but I feel as if I'm the weakest link.
I can hold a tune, but I still have a lot to learn.

One
A piece of cake. I mean, a good piece of cake! 


Have a happy week everyone!
