Okay, so as you know if you read my "About" tab, I'm beginning a creative writing assignment in which I blog about books and reading and all that jazz. 

I just wanted to start off by saying how much I love reading and writing. Everyone doesn't really understand (except Ashlyn, who has her own book blog which I shall link into my "Contact" tab), but it's like a movie inside my head. Of course I love just sitting there and watching movies and relaxing and not doing any work, but then I feel unintelligent and icky. So I pick up a book. I learn some new vocabulary words, cry a little over the characters, and then finish the book within a week if not earlier. 

It is quite honestly ridiculous how attached I get to characters in books. I ship certain characters together. 

If you don't know what shipping is, allow me to explain because I will most likely use this term more than once: 

Shipping is when you have two characters or people or two organisms(I don't know, I want to be generic), and you literally relationship them. You want them to be in a relationship. For example: Peeta and Katniss in "The Hunger Games", Scout and Dill in "To Kill a Mockingbird". 
Though, even if a lot of people "ship" a certain pair, they are not necessarily in a relationship in the first place. Some people may ship Tris and Four from "Divergent" for example, even though they weren't in a relationship, at first. Others ship Rudy and Liesel from "The Book Thief", who also never date. 

Anyway, as I was previously saying, I get very attached to books and their characters. After I've read a book which I particularly adored, I spend a certain time period mourning the loss of the characters. Their lives are on the pages. The pages are their life. And from start to finish, those pages are my life, too. Every book I read, I must also formally bid adieu to a part of my life. 

Now on to my next favorite aspect of life: writing. I used to write every single day. When I was eleven, I wrote a novel of 18,000 words and 50 pages. Now-a-days, I don't write as frequently as I would enjoy to--though in Creative Writing, I am able to write as freely as I please. For example, this blog, as long as I'm writing a lot, then I get full credit, more or less. This assignment is possibly the best thing ever, since I am writing about reading.

But seriously, my entire life doesn't revolve around books, I promise. I watch far more TV than I should, I do a lot of homework, I sleep quite a bit, I go on Tumblr and laugh with myself. Although I do pride myself in being a bookworm and a dork, I do have somewhat of a social life. Welcome to my reading brain.
I guess I should also probably tell you about what I'm going to post about!
It's going to be a big mix of recommendations, reviews, and various other book-related shenanigans. Probably also there will be multiple posts including me and my hilarious self.
Also I assume I should be specific. So...
my posts are probably going to be a little spread out since I have approximately 4 weeks to write 9 posts! (Obviously I'll write more, so don't you fret, little one). 

Tomorrow(December 12th) I'm going to delve into the world of John Green and why I love his books but hate his style(oh, the teenage clichés!) Don't really know what else I'm going to do; I'm a 14 year old girl, I apologize that I don't have my whole life planned out. I'm going to obviously have a post about Hunger Games, Divergent, and the glorious Dystopia-style books I adore ever-so much. Also my beloved Harry Potter!
I'll keep you posted
Get it because it's a saying, but I'm literally going to be posting something.
Sorry that I'm too hilarious for you.

I came to look at what Ms. Chufo said about your blog and she is right. Your writing style is funny and I will probably come back to read more :D
