Be a Better Blogger!

Hey everyone! I hope you are enjoying all these awesome guest posts while I am on vacation! Tomorrow is my last day at the beach, but then I go to my cousins farm until Tuesday the 16th! I'm majorly sunburned but I've been skim boarding all week and I'm loving it! I'll post some pictures on the 17th. Anyway, while I have the time a need to tell you all about something.

The Be a Better Blogger Campain over at Dancing Through Life. Qui quotes on her blog..

How is this going to work? Well, I'll tell you. Starting tomorrow, I'm going to begin presenting you with challenges. They could be design related, they could be post related, WHATEVER. I want to go back to the style of blogging that pushed me past that 30 follower mark I'd been stuck in for so long.
So, comment below if you're going to participate! And spread the word! 
So head over to her blog and tell her you'd like to participate! I think this will be so fun and interesting to be a part of. Why the heck is this highlighted in white? How do I get it off? Someone please tell me! I don't know how to make the text have no background once it's on. Grr.

So today I went to the book store called Books-A-Million for the first time, they don't have them where I live but it was such a cool store! I got three new books! Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler, Anna an The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, and The Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. I am so excited to read all of these, I heard they were all amazing. I wasn't planning to read Anna and the French Kiss but I just saw it and my eyes were drawn to it!

At first the worker at the store said they didn't have any more copies of Twenty Boy Summer. My day was completely ruined. Then I was walking by a random shelf and saw it shoved between a bunch of random books. I'm literally like OH MY GOSH THERE IT IS!!!!! And did a happy dance. Yes, I like to happy dance.

I know a lot of you guys are obsessed with the Vampire Academy so I figured I'd give it a try. My cousin said it is way better than Twilight.

Hope all of you guys are doing well! Hi and thank you to any new followers I have gotten in the past few days! I feel like I just got to the beach.. I can't believe tomorrow is the last day. Wow.

Well, look out for more great guest posts coming in the next few days!

YES YES AND YES to all three books you got.

1) Sarah Ockler is an AMAZING WRITER. But if I remember correctly you've read Fixing Delilah so you already know that.

2) OMG ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS. Possibly my favorite stand-alone. Or very close to the top. One of the sweetest, funniest books ever. Mark my words, you will fall in love with St. Clair.

3) HOW HAVE YOU NEVER READ VAMPIRE ACADEMY BEFRORE?! You. Will. Become. Obsessed. Rose is one of the most kick-ass main characters ever, and Dimitri is so swoon worthy it's ridiculous. I think I read the entire series in like a week.

So basically you have a bunch of epic reads. Enjoy, and I can't wait to hear what you think of them!

Thanks Paige! :)

And Sarah Ockler is THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!! Twenty Boy Summer and Fixing Delilah are some of my favorite books ever.

And I hate Books a Million.
Maybe because that's the only book store we have in town (our Borders is about to close.) :( Barnes and Noble is so much better.

I haven't been fallowing your blog for very long, But so far, It's pretty cool. I tried to copy one of your buttons but i'm not sure how to get it on my blog. I did the HTML/ JAva script thing but it won't work, it won't show up. Oh well. Cool post by the way. I need more followers over at, I only have five... SOOO, if you have time please stop by! -Faith
