I knew I wasn't crazy

So I was flipping through one of my mom's magazine's today when I saw this ad:
Yes, it's an ad for Abreva. Then I got this crazy deja vu feeling and I knew that I had seen that picture somewhere else before. Then it figured it out. See for yourself.

It's also the cover of Shrinking Violet by Danielle Joseph! Who knew that a book cover could also make a nice ad for cold sore treatment?

Books You Should Read

I'm too tired to do any real book reviews right now, but I've been doing some reading in the last five months I haven't been posting and would like to make some recommendations. Seriously, just read the following books:

1. Wings by Aprilynne Pike. It was very addicting and I liked her concept of fairies more than a lot of other author's.

2. Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. Some of the best books that I've read all year. Way better than Twilight. I'm in love with Jace.

3. The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan. Or any other books in this series for that matter. Very, very fun, fast reads.

4. Being Nikki by Meg Cabot. The first part is kind of slow but it really picks up near the end. I cannot wait for the sequel.

Just read this books, they're awesome. Plus, I'm getting Forest Born this Saturday! Still debating whether or not to do a review on it once I get it. I already know it's going to be incredible.

Taylor Swift Concert

I got the chance to see the Taylor Swift Concert on May 26 in Salt Lake City. It was the first concert I'd ever been to so I wasn't sure what to expect. The show was completely sold out, and I heard afterwards that there were over 14,000 people there! Not surprising, the majority of the people there were young girls. It was fun to see all of them with their cowboy hats on. :)

Anyways, we were in the nosebleed section so it was hard to see anything from the stage except for from the screens. Taylor was amazing though. The girl can put on quite a show. She changed her clothes a lot and there were a lot of other dancers and people up there with her. It was cool to hear all of her songs live and I liked that she sang songs from her first album as well. There was one point in the concert after she sang "Tim McGraw," that the people were clapping so hard, Taylor looked like she was about to cry. It was a cool show and definitely worth seeing if she comes to your town.

So, it's been a while

So, it looks like it's been a month since I last posted. I feel bad about that, I really do. Though there's a lot of stuff I want to talk about in this post:

1. It's the one year aniversary of my blog here on Blogger! It's hard to believe that a whole year has passed already. Though I've actually been blogging longer than that because I did have a blog on LiveJournal. It's fun to look back on those posts.

2. I'm also going to finally post a new book review, since the last one I had was Breaking Dawn in August! Considering I actually have had time to finish a book that wasn't related to school. Wow, has that really been five months? So expect that soon.

3.There's some sad news as well. This morning at school we found out that this weekend one of my assistant principals passed away. This was very shocking news, especially for the students in my grade who knew him the longest. He was an extraordinary person who contributed to our school in so many amazing ways. And even though I didn't have personal contact with him a lot, the loss was still felt deeply.

Anyway, I'll have some more posts soon. One of my '09 resolutions is to post on my blog more, so that'll be happening more often.

Have a great day!
