Something to Think About

Every time I'm back in my hometown, where there is absolutely nothing to do unless you feel like spending a lot of money, I go to Amazon.com and my library's website and pretty much put every book (that I can) from my wishlist on hold. "What Happens Here" by Tara Altebrando had been on my wishlist since the beginning of summer, and I just couldn't bring myself to read it because the cover didn't look to enticing to me. But yesterday I began reading it at 11:30 pm and didn't stop until 2:15 am when I was finished. I never expected it to be so good!

"What Happens Here" will honestly make you re-evaluate any close friendship you have and really appreciate those who are in your life, and to not take anything for granted. I don't know what I was expecting when I began reading it, but when I was finished I just wanted to tell everyone to go read it! With the theme of this book, as well as recent losses in my circle of friends and family, it's made me realize that I really need to have a better outlook on life and not just sit around, waiting for something exciting to happen.

Look for more on Thursday, New Years Resolution time!

Happy New Years Everyone! Hope you have a great celebration - and be safe!


  1. hmm I have never heard about that book before, I'll have to check it out

    thanks :)

  2. Yes you really need to watch slumdog millionaire it's AMAZING!

    role models was pretty funny but not hilarious remember it's rated-r for a reason, so if that bothers you don't watch it

  3. The movie Role Models is more similar to superbad (love it too, it's hilarious!) than it is to tropic thunder, I thought that movie was funny but nothing like superbad haha oh did you know that the same guy that made superbad is making another movie? it's called adventureland I CAN'T wait until it comes out it stars this pretty cute guy, i forgot his name, i'm not good with names, and the girl that played bella in twilight, I'm not a fan of her's but you might be, a lot of people seem to have become fans of hers since twilight (sorry if you like that movie but i think it's horrible).
