What Year Do You Belong In?

You Belong in 1973

If you scored...

1950 - 1959: You're fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!

1960 - 1969: You are a free spirit with a huge heart. Love, peace, and happiness rule - oh, and drugs too.

1970 - 1979: Bold and brash, you take life by the horns. Whether you're partying or protesting, you give it your all!

1980 - 1989: Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You're colorful at night - and successful during the day.

1990 - 1999: With you anything goes! You're grunge one day, ghetto fabulous the next. It's all good!

Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen

CAtegory: Books
Genre: Classic
Author: Jane Austen


I am so intrigued with this book. Everytime, I’m in some forum they usually recommend this book.

And now I will tell you.. and “shew” you what it is like to read this acclaimed book.

At first, I wasn’t thrilled when I was reading the first few chapters. It talks about balls, girls, mother-wanting-to-let-her-daughter-marry-some-rich-lad, and too English-y for me.

Or it was just the fact I got used with Meg Cabot’s easy writing that I suddenly want to read more Cabot’s… oops.. I’m talking about Austen’s.

Anyway, just read on because the ending sure is great. I appreciated the whole book because of how it ended. It was just soo nice.

You would then appreciate the different characters and all that. The amiable father, the ever ill-mannered (who improved in the end) and sometimes crazy mother, the very noble, beautiful firstborn Jane, the most-beloved daughter(of their father) Elizabeth, the bookworm Mary, the flirty Kitty and the foolish 16 yr. old Lydia, the nice man Mr. Bingley, the kinda-proud Mr. Darcy (who is really nice when deeply known), the foolish man Mr. Wickham, the Gardiners, Lady Catherine, Miss Bingley, Charlotte, Mr. Collins, the Philip’s, the Lucases…

Each possessed a different trait. Each played a nice role. Classic. -_-

Angels Trilogy - Lurlene McDaniels

Category: Books
Genre: Teens
Author: Lurlene McDaniels


It's a story about a girl(Leah) whose real father died, whose mother remarried 5 times, and who does not love to be uprooted everytime her mother re-marries. She was taken to a hospital because her finger broke while her mom was having her honeymoon in Japan with Neil her husband #5.

Leah has a wardmate, a little Amish girl named Rebekah with a scorpion bite. Here you would know the difference between an Amish and an English person. Amish is a religious group who prefer to be separate among the modern people and prefer to call themselves "plain person". They do not have elictricity, cars or anything modern. They live as farmers and carpenters in Nappanee.

Rebekah has a brother whom Leah fell in love with named Ethan. Here the test goes for the two people who are so different in ways and are worlds apart. Leah was also diagnosed with bone cancer, but was touched by an angel they believe was named Gabriella.

A family and a love story in one. It's an ok story but exactly not that great for an 18 year old girl like me. Probably good for 13 year olds - 17 :)
