(Mini Review) Wish by Alexandra Bullen

Still on my desktop, cleaned it up some and it's going a little faster, but still can't upload anything or open up any files.   Looks like it might be longer to get my laptop fixed. :(  Thought I would do a couple of mini reviews so that I don't get too backed up.


Wish by Alexandra Bullen
Genre:  Young Adult
Publisher:  Scholastic
Date Published:  January 1st 2010

Wish is Alexandra Bullen's debut novel and the first in the Wish series.  I liked and enjoyed Wish, and that's basically it.   Nothing stood out, nothing to rave about..it was just a okay read.  Olivia and Violet are twins and when Violet dies everthing changes.  Olivia and her family move, and she is finding it hard to cope with everything without Violet.  Three wishes come to play, and situations to do with those wishes is what Wish is about.  At times I was a little bored, honestly Olivia isn't really a interesting character. 

Final Say-  Just okay.  Check your local library for a copy.

Laptop Went Bust

On the first of this month my laptop went caput.  It will probably take about 2 weeks before I can get it fixed (hopefully sooner), but in the mean time my husband took the old pc out of the closet, and plugged it in.  It's big and fugly to say the least, and I sent two emails today that took me about an hour and half to send..lol!  Yes, it's slow..very slloooow.  I'm falling way behind on my reviews, and i'm reading like I just learned  how to read.  No laptop equals no distractions from reading.  I'm currently on my fifth book for this month (YEAH!). 

I might try to knock out a review.  I know I can't put a picture on a post unless I want to wait a day for it to load.  I don't know I'll see what I can do if anything at all. 

I have a feeling Feb. will be a knockout month for me!
