Citat 1. I have my driving theory exam on Thursday, the real one. Wish me luck! I spent four hours studying today (and I'll probably spend another few studying later tonight) and I'm also using the day tomorrow for studying. Sounds fun, right?

2. I received my copy of Breaking Dawn last week and I've read 8 chapters and I really have to force myself to pick up the book and read. I actually prefer reading my driving theory book and that's saying something. And because I have to talk about it a little, some random thoughts...
Spoilers for the first 8 chapters of BD and some really minor ones for the Host! )

3. When I was going home today I walked past the book store and they had a copy of "War & Peace" by Leo Tolstoy on display. It looked so pretty and the summary on the back actually intrigued me. Anyone know if it's any good? Because I don't feel like diving in to a 1200+ pages novel just because it was pretty and had an interesting back cover summary (any book can have that!). I was thinking about just watching the TV miniseries or something and if I like it, then maybe read the book...

Citat I have to read a book for English class, but I have no idea of what I want to read. I know I said I'm reading all the classics, and I still am, but some variation is nice too so I want recs please! Anything you've read, that you think I'd enjoy reading is great as long as the book is available in English. *g*
Citat I'm officially in love with BBCs Jane Eyre. Ok, I probably love the novel more, but they did such a good job with this series it derserves some love too! As the hopeless romantic I am, I'm just getting really obsessed with all the classics - you should see my planned reading list it's pretty much filled with the entire works of the Brontë sisters, Jane Austen and similar authors...! So yeah, I know what I'll be reading this year. ;)
Citat I really should be getting on with my homework instead of updating lj, but since it's been a while I just have to share a few things.

1. Meg Rosoff's books are really interesting (good interesting!) and so lovable, especially "How I Live Now", which I liked better. If you need a book to read I can really recommend her writing.

2. Reading about the DVD extras on the Veronica Mars season 3 DVD box totally made me realize how much I actually miss the show. I never thought I would seeing as I was pretty upset about how they handled the 3rd season, but I really do miss it. I have to re-watch it soon!

3. Yesterday I watched Notting Hill for the first time ever. (Yeah, I know I'm the last person on earth to see that movie!) I really liked it, even though it was predictable, maybe because I'm a hopeless romantic... But it was cute! :)

4. Like I said, my homework is waiting for me...

Take care, ...
Citat Today has been (and still is) a wonderful day! I've been sitting outside in the garden reading all day!

Guess what arrived today?! *Points at icon* Twilight! Now I'm off to read!
I finally watched
A Walk to Remember
last night, after being told so many times (by different people) that I had to see it. I really loved it, it was so sad but so good!

I also want to reccomend the book
A Little Love Song
by Michelle Magorian, I finished it for the 2nd time a couple of days ago. When I first read it I think I was a little too young to understand it all but this time it was different! It's a very sweet story about two sisters in England during the 2nd world war and their struggles with life, love and becoming adults. It's just one of those books that leaves you with a big smile on your face after you finish it. Smile
