FINISHED: Not In The Script, Let It Snow, A Little Something Different

     Hello fellows!

     Today, I put dignity into saying I finished my reading goals for the week. First, Heir of Fire. And now, Not In The Script. Pat on the back, Mia! Great job! I finished Not In the Script yesterday and may I say, it truly captures the burden of having your life displayed for everybody to see. It was amazing, overall. Yesterday, I also started reading Let It Snow (finished it, too). I have yet to finish I Am Malala and Daughter of Smoke and Bone. To complete my goal of reading 4 books of the week, I also finished A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall. SUPER CUTE BOOK, TO THE MAX!

     I guess you guys are still awaiting for my reviews on Heir of Fire (now, also add Not In The Script, Let It Snow and A Little Something Different to the list). School has been pretty hectic for the past couple of days so forgive me if I am not posting as much as I used to. I promise when all of this stuff comes to pass.

Millions of people witnessed Emma Taylor’s first kiss—a kiss that needed twelve takes and four camera angles to get right. After spending nearly all of her teen years performing on cue, Emma wonders if any part of her life is real anymore . . . particularly her relationships.

Jake Elliott’s face is on magazine ads around the world, but his lucrative modeling deals were a poor substitute for what he had to leave behind. Now acting is offering Jake everything he wants: close proximity to home; an opportunity to finally start school; and plenty of time with the smart and irresistible Emma Taylor . . . if she would just give him a chance.

When Jake takes Emma behind the scenes of his real life, she begins to see how genuine he is, but on-set relationships always end badly. Don’t they? Toss in Hollywood’s most notorious heartthrob and a resident diva who may or may not be as evil as she seems, and the production of Coyote Hills heats up in unexpected—and romantic—ways.

This novel in the deliciously fun If Only romance line proves that the best kinds of love stories don’t follow a script.

The New York Times bestseller!

Sparkling white snowdrifts, beautiful presents wrapped in ribbons, and multicolored lights glittering in the night through the falling snow. A Christmas Eve snowstorm transforms one small town into a romantic haven, the kind you see only in movies. Well, kinda. After all, a cold and wet hike from a stranded train through the middle of nowhere would not normally end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger. And no one would think that a trip to the Waffle House through four feet of snow would lead to love with an old friend. Or that the way back to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks. Thanks to three of today’s bestselling teen authors—John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle—the magic of the holidays shines on these hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and breathtaking kisses.

"Tender without being mushy, these carefully crafted stories of believable teen love will leave readers warm inside for the holidays."—School Library Journal

"Contemporary culture, humorous romantic developments and strong characters enhance this collaborative effort."—Kirkus Reviews

The creative writing teacher, the delivery guy, the local Starbucks baristas, his best friend, her roommate, and the squirrel in the park all have one thing in common—they believe that Gabe and Lea should get together. Lea and Gabe are in the same creative writing class. They get the same pop culture references, order the same Chinese food, and hang out in the same places. Unfortunately, Lea is reserved, Gabe has issues, and despite their initial mutual crush, it looks like they are never going to work things out.  But somehow even when nothing is going on, something is happening between them, and everyone can see it. Their creative writing teacher pushes them together. The baristas at Starbucks watch their relationship like a TV show. Their bus driver tells his wife about them. The waitress at the diner automatically seats them together. Even the squirrel who lives on the college green believes in their relationship.

Surely Gabe and Lea will figure out that they are meant to be together....

     That's really all I have to say; this post was just to state I finished a couple books but also to inform you guys of my busy education.

     That's all for my post, and remember: you should be a tree; they have awesome afterlives.
