A NEED SO BEAUTIFUL
Paranormal Young Adult
June 21st, 2011
Charlotte’s best friend thinks Charlotte might be psychic. Her boyfriend thinks she’s cheating on him. But Charlotte knows what’s really wrong: She is one of the Forgotten, a kind of angel on earth, who feels the Need—a powerful, uncontrollable draw to help someone, usually a stranger.
There have been others before who’ve felt the Need, but they’re gone—erased from the memories of everyone whose lives they had touched. It's as though they never existed. This is the fate that awaits Charlotte. But the last thing Charlotte wants to do is disappear, to be Forgotten. She wants to stay with her best friend, whose life is spiraling out of control. She wants to lie in her boyfriend’s arms forever. She wishes she could just ignore the Need, but she can’t. And as everyone important in her life begins to slowly forget her, she has to decide if she’ll fight the Need in order to remain herself—no matter how dark the consequences.
I can't wait.. :)

Do you like to read Holiday books near the holidays? I do, Mainly I will read one or 2. The 1st one I read is the one my mom bought me the previous year. I don't read it until the following year, when she gives it to me! And I look forward to that, Every year. This year she got me The Christmas Sweater by Glenn Beck. It sounds very good. Last year I got, The Perfect Christmas by Debbie Macomber. So, far it's really cute! A good holiday read! Now, for my kids we read a Christmas story a night.. 12 days before Christmas.. It's our little count down to Christmas!! :) They enjoy it, Landon more so then Lilah, who like to look at the pictures, and rip them if you put it down for one second.. terrible 2's, oh my!
But so far we have read:
The Legend Of The Candy Cane By Lori Walburg
The Story of Christmas by Patricia A. Pingry
How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Sucess
Many more! Landon really is enjoying it. He's my oldest. (I ONLY have 2!) And is looking forward to Christmas, but is also learning the MEANING of it. Not all about "presents", really nothing to do with presents as the more meaningful meaning! I love Christmas, It is my favorite holiday! But, I also love the meaning, and what Christmas stands for!! And I want to pass that on with my kids.. that, yes it is NICE to get presents... there is something more powerful to Christmas, and that it's the most important of all!!
Let me know what your reading this holiday!!
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
Grab the book you are currently reading and randomly post a couple sentences.
My mother leaves. I am alone.
My teaser comes from:
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Anna Oliphant is separated from her friends and her crush to spend a year in a boarding school in Paris. After an achingly realistic awkward start, she falls in with the arty group at her boarding school, which includes handsome, kind and funny Etienne. Over the course of the school year, she slowly, deeply, not always smoothly, falls in love with the city...and with Etienne...all the while enduring the barbs of some of the other boarders, who love to call Anna 'skunk girl' because of the white streak she dyes in her hair. Adding to Anna's troubles, Etienne already has a girlfriend, and even if he didn't, Anna's good friend at the school, Meredith, also has her eyes on him, and she has prior claims.
But Anna grows closer than ever to Etienne, and the tension between them is palpable as they resist the urge to kiss one another in a very French way.

"What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?"
What a TOUGH question!!!! I would have to say BOTH. I can't choose here.. The plot HAS to be something that I am interested in. It can't be a dull story with great characters. I have to like both. Then it can't be a good plot with annoying characters, that I can't connect with. With every book that I read that I love... I am connected to the characters in SOME way.. and Then again, I am feeling the plot. They are to me, both important!!!
What about you? How do you feel about this question?
Happy Reading & Happy Holidays! :-))

Blog hop Friday is hosted by Crazy For Books!
A little about the blog hop:
In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!
This weeks Question is:
''What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs? Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?"
I like the book blogging world!!! We are all just happy go luck book readers, who love what we do!!! :) I love reading!! Although I can't wait until school is out so I can read MORE!!! almost there... 4 months left :)
But I really do like reading the reviews... seeing other people's ratings on books! It actually helps me in purchacing books. Because I am a cover lover, if it has an appealing cover, i will buy it!!!!! But I have gotten plenty 'duds' that way!! SO, like they say.... DONT JUDGE A BOOK BY THE COVER!! They mean that... literally! :)
What about you? I love this blogging world.. :)
