So after reading the Twilight series like 7 times one of my very best friends Cat mentioned that she had downloaded the Audio Books and was LISTENING to the series on her Ipod... well i thought that was a cool idea because i hate bringing a book to work and then everytime i have to put it down to do something it would put me in a bad mood. so i downloaded the series. this coming after i had downloaded "The Host" back in like march. which is another super cool book. so after listening to the Twilight Saga a few more times i decided i needed some new stories to fill my mind.
So after talking to Riley's aunt Debi about audio books she mentioned that she had an account on and paid like $14 a month and got one book a month. .. plus discounts on any others she wanted. so i signed myself up and have falle
n in love with this new trend. it's given me the option of reading books while actually doing something productive. so now i can drive up to see my mom and listen to a book and the time goes by like nothing. AND i'm actually doing housework now. i find excuses to do laundry and dishes so i can put my headphones in without getting too much crap from Riley. so here are some of my very favorite new book finds with
a very quick synopsis in case you are interested.

New Moon
Breaking Dawn

The Thirteen Reasons why, By Jay Asher
Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a
mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker--his classmate and crush--who committed suicide two weeks earlier. On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out how he made the list.

The Time Travelers Wife, By Audrey Niffenegger
What if two people who loved each other deeply, married, and faced a life in which one person remained constant while the other slipped fluidly in and out of time?

The Mortal instruments series, by Cassandra Clare
City of Bones
City of Ashes
City of Glass
Clary witnesses a murder while in a club in NYC with her best friend Simon but why is she the only one able to see what just happened. And what do you do when the body disappears into thin air. These three books follow Clary on her journey to save her mothers life, and discover the truth about her that her mother kept hidden for her entire life

So now i've started listening to Harry Potter because i never read them but i love all the movies. i finished the first book a few hours ago... only to realize that the first book is EXACTLY like the first movie... i didn't find any difference... we'll see as i get further in the series though.

I'm also debating whether to download P.S. I love you. because the Movie was one of my favorite girly movies ever... i bawled through the ENTIRE movie... and i don't usually cry like that in movies. i'm also thinking about reading The Outlander... any imput on that book would be great cause it's still way up in the air....

Thanks for reading!

Here we go again

So my mom has this girl(Kindra) that she sort of mentored when i was in high school. she was in foster care and so my mom would teach her life lessons and such.. take her out and do stuff. anyway the two have r
emained really close. So when Kindra needed a place to stay she moved in with my mom into the spare room. well kindra got married on July 31st. and my mom kind of took it upon herself to put the whole thing together as the substitute mother of the Bride. so the week of the wedding my mom needed someon
e to do the pictures for the wedding last minute. Well knowing what a people pleaser i am of course i agreed. i offered to bring my little cannon point and shoot up and do some pictures for her (I'm planning on going to photography school as soon as i get Riley's milita
ry money so that i can go for free :) ) anyway so Riley decided that since i'm going to need a nice DSLR camera for school anyway we should get me one and i can start learning how to use it before i go to school. So While up in Lehi helping my mom out with this wedding Riley snuck away with my little sister Ali and went to buy me the Nikon D60. he went to best buy and got a smokin deal with a bag, extra lens and
a memory card. needless to say i LOVE IT. so here are a few pictures of Riley, Ali and other
things. these are just me trying to figure this thing out.
