Here's the rules...
"Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. You also
need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given! Just don't ruin the plot of the book!"
The Unwritten Rule
By Elizabeth Scott
"It hurts becausee Brianna will wonder what's wrong with me. I don't not talk to her, not ever. "
Okay, so I've been telling myself all this stuff I need to get done on my blog, but never get around to doing it. So I'm posting my To Do List on my blog so I'll stick to it.
My Blog To Do List for This Week...
1) Write my review for Waiting for You by Susane Colasanti
2) Write my review for The Mall Looks A Lot Like Heaven by Wendy Mass
3) Work on my blog button link

So the actors did a really short version of New Moon the Movie. It was about ten minutes and it started with Bella and Edward outside her house after the birthday disaster, then where Edward leaves, Alice coming back to Forks and then Italy. It was SUPER quick, but fun to watch.
Bella even did a "Oh who should I choose?! Jacob or Edward?" And of course everyone yelled out who she should choose, it was cute. At the end of the performance "Alice" said they didn't have a Jacob in their group, but that they literally just found him in a neighboring booth, and he REALLY looked like Taylor! She introduced him by pointing him out in the audience "Our Jacob, wearing the green shirt in the back!" My friends and I all turned frantically around looking for him behind us. Then we looked to our left and he was sitting right next to my friend. She flipped out! The entire night she was kept repeating he was sitting right next to me, ha! Of course she didn't know this until he got up and walked up on stage. It was really funny. "Alice" also informed us that the fair had forgotten their performance (how could they?! Really??) So they didn't have music and the sound was bad, but it was still really good.
It was a really fun experience and probably the closest I'll ever get to the actual Twilight Cast. Okay, so I put up some pictures from the performance and I apologize for the bad quality, they were taken with my phone.... no zoom. So the first picture is of Edward and Bella on her birthday when she asks for her kiss. The next is when Alice comes back to see if Bella is still alive. And the final one is when Edward and Bella reunite in Italy. Enjoy!
The book was pretty much impossible to put down, I finished it within a day. The plot was just so intriguing, I mean who wouldn't want to go away to a foreign country and meet an extremely charming boy with a cute accent? What kept me reading was what Derek was trying to hide from Beth and if their summertime fling could survive once they got back home. But Derek wasn't the only boy in the picture. Her best friend since preschool, Simon, has been there through all the bullying back when she used to be the "Beast" and he has a confession of his own. It was really hard to decide what guy you wanted her to stay loyal to throughout the book... Derek the dark and mysterious artist or Simon the safe and geeky friend.
My favorite character was definitely the main character, Beth, who was very easy to relate to that you felt like you were in her shoes. Morrison did an amazing job giving Beth a unique out look that it was impossible not to like her. When she goes off on her endless worrying thoughts it's pretty funny, I even caught myself saying, "Wow, I do that all the time. Do I really sound like that?" She grows tremendously throughout the book. I adored her.
Cover: 5/5 The hands hanging on to each other lightly is very sweet and fits the story well.
Okay this was my first review I've ever published/ written so please leave me your comments on how I can make them better, or what I can add or take out. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank You!
