Lauren Oliver's Writing Challenge

okay so a lot of people have been having trouble trying to see Laurens writing challenge and etc. I was one of those people until i went to goodreads and it had trouble on there but at the bottom of all the coding and stuff was what was on her post that know one can see so I took the time to delete the coding from her writing so people can submit to her challenge because I for one was looking forward to it so here it is:

It has been far too long since I've posted a writing challenge. Blame it on post-tour exhaustion, lots of napping, and a decent amount of blowing off work to frolic in Prospect Park! But I'm back on the blog and I expect you to be back at your computers, too. This month's challenge is about—what else?—Summer Lovin.' Yes Your challenge is to complete a 200-250 word submission that begins with or incorporates the following sentence: “The first time I saw Kyle, I was standing in between the Dunk-A-Dunce booth and the Hoop Hop, wrestling with a gigantic stuffed panda bear. Not the best way to make a good first impression." Please note that Kyle might be either a girl's name or a boy's name. And the submission can focus on a romantic entanglement, or it can just explore the brand-new friendships that often seem to sprout around June and wither away by Labor Day.Get writing! I'll expect your submissions by June 18. Remember to send them to laurenoliverbooks at gmail dot com.And in the meantime…happy summering!

New blog over on Wordpress

So, lately I've been having trouble with this blog right here when it comes to subscribing back to new followers and commenting back and etc. So I made another blog with another gmail account but it did the same thing as this blog so I've decided to use my Wordpress that I never use, to blog and give the latest reviews and stuff. I might post them on here also but I want to be able to reply to ya'll when you comment and I haven't decided. So here's my new blog that's still in Work in progress haha:

IMM (4)

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

Debut author Veronica Roth bursts onto the literary scene with the first book in the Divergent series—dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance

In the past two years, Mclean Sweet has moved four times. At each stop, she assumes a new persona, but it never quite works. Whether she's an effervescent cheerleader or an intense drama queen, nothing can permanently dispel the turmoil and rage at her mother since her parents' divorce. Sarah Dessen's novel about a teenager and her restaurant manager father captures the vulnerability that young people often experience after the dissolution of their family. A compelling story; strong characterization; and with a touch of romance.

Can't wait to read them :)
