I would be pleased to review any books, whether they be advance copies or old ones. If you would like me to review a book, feel free to email me at ashley2055@gmail.com or leave a comment on any of my posts.

I will also do giveaways on merchandise if you would be interested in giving away copies of books or other items.

Nostalgia is a funny thing, isn’t it?

Lately, I’ve been looking through pictures on weheartit, reliving memories and such. It makes me think of the first time I read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone or when I picked up my first camera. I miss those days when I was little and could blame everything on the fact that I didn’t know, or no one told me not to do it.

We all grow up a little bit too fast, don’t we? Either we’re forced to, or we believe it’ll solve all of our problems. It really doesn’t though. Just because we grew up doesn’t mean everyone else did. It doesn’t mean life will make sense, and everything will be perfect. It just means we’re stuck wishing we could go back a little bit more than before.

What is this nonsense rambling about? It’s just my way of saying to take your time. Be wild and free, laugh more than you should, and just let yourself live. The other day, I went to the mall with my friends, and we did the things regular people didn’t. We went in this Hurricane Simulator, took our picture in a cardboard cutout and just had fun. It was the happiest I’ve been in awhile.

People tell you to grow up, but then they’re saying how you shouldn’t rush these things. Life gives you so many years. Do you really want to spend more of them being mature and grown-up? Or would you rather build one more fort out of blankets and pillows? (And by the way, the picture below is just an example that I found funny)

Breaking Dawn :]

So, I went tonight to see the fourth Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn. I was expecting a lot of different things, <<enter caption here>> on June 4, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.but when it comes down to it, I was impressed. It was definitely the best film of the series, in my opinion.

I’m not the biggest fan of Kristen Stewart (Sorry!) but I think she did a decent job. The make-up artists and special-effects people did a magnificent job, too! Everything looked so real and not edited. The only down fall was that Taylor Lautner was shirtless for less than a minute in the whole two hours. I was expecting a bit more in that department. Winking smile

The actors were all good, and I loved the way they tied everything in. Of course, parts were left out or skipped over. Reneesme was shown in such a detailed way. . . I love Jacob’s imprint!!! Yeah, it’s disturbing, but the way they show it in the movie, it makes sense.

Over all, I’m giving this movie 4 out of 5 stars. Mainly, it was a good movie, but a bit too graphic for my taste. If you’re squeamish about blood or the sound of breaking bones, make sure you have someone with you to shield yourself with in the last ten minutes of the movie.

Coincidence that as I type this the Breaking Dawn trailer is on my TV? Oh, how funny. Well, I recommend that you go see the movie, because I have no idea what I’m going to do until November for part two!

Tumblr, my friends?

So, today I was talking to a friend of mine and she told me that she has a Tumblr that she loves. I started thinking about my lonesome Tumblr account that I made months ago. I’m going to try it out and see how it goes. Honestly, I’ll probably come back to blogspot in less than a week because I already have my followers and I know how to operate this site a lot better.

Do any of you have a Tumblr? Would you follow me if I switched? (Don’t worry, I won’t judge you if you say no)

Otherwise, have fun with November, guys! NaNoWriMo has begun and is in full speed. I just wanted to post and let you know about my Tumblr experiment and get feedback Open-mouthed smile
