The Impossible Knife of Memory

things you may be asking yourself in this moment:
1. is this really happening?
2. after months has she finally returned better than ever?
3. will she give us more reviews because she finally bought a laptop?
4. is it wrong to use your siblings tooth brush to scrub the dogs butt?
the answers to all of the above are yes. unless the sibling wronged you. then by all means take revenge. HELLOOOOOOOO PEOPLE OF THE WEB! oh how I've missed you all. so I basically haven't had a computer all summer but finally I was able to get one and now I have returned. so the funny thing about books is they all cost like 20$ so I've been living on wattpad..... however I did read this lovely book while i was at camp so we are gonna review it and you are gonna deal with it. so without further stalling and pointless intro I know you don't care about lets begin. the impossible knife of memory by Laurie Halse Anderson is not only great because it saved me from camp quest time when I (the hyper one) needed to be entertained. its great because its funny while still being raw. the story follows the main character Hayley who's dad is a military vet with intense ptsd issues (if that bothers you don't read this) they move around a lot because her dad drives an 18-wheeler. they finally decide to settle down and we get to see it is like for a free range chicken to be crammed into the glorious all American public school system. you would assume it'd be difficult for someone raised learning geography based on their truck roots to suddenly have their face shoved into a textbook. it sounds difficult and it is and Anderson does a great job describing how hard of a time it is for Hayley. Okay so life sucks when your incredibly street smart but now have calculus class to deal with, what next? Finn. the unrealistically attractive genius swimmer. thats what happens next. its kind of like watching a slow motion car accident because you know that two people who both have these inner demons can't possibly have a smooth relationship. the other shoe must fall. so with her dads ptsd acting up Hayley knows its time to move....but what if she finally has a reason to stay?? dun. dun. duhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. so its hilariously written and so many amazing descriptions of characters/situations/etc. it keeps you interested until the very last page. there is a ton of action and drama. overall the characters are well written and not annoying or anything. id stay definitely read this book if you need something to satisfy the "its summer and i can't go out because I'm broke and I need to read because it is an addiction that controls my life and will be the reason I go bankrupt" blues. I'm really happy to be back, request stuff y'all!!!
thanks for reading

Hopeless

hellllooooo people of this universe and other universes (if you are reading this and classify your self as an extra terrestrial call me i need a cotillion date) finals are finally over!! infinite joy and happiness not to mention now i can actually get in the christmas spirit. thank God for glee christmas songs.  so after making it through finals (relatively) unscathed i decided to curl up in my room jam to my glee and plow through books i had been saving as an after finals treat! yay christmas! yay books! yay charlie brown! so on the first night of my freedom i snuggled up with colleen hoover's Hopeless. i guess we are gonna go ahead and get started. after you. no really go ahead. okay if you insist. Hopeless follows our main character Sky -crap my friends are here i'll be back tomorrow to finish this- *one day later*
wow when i said one day later and its march 27th. bitch you thought. um so where were we? what book was this even? OH GOD I REMEMBER THIS ONE!!!!!! in case anyone's curious i went to cotillion with my church friend who is unfortunately from this planet. oh wow yall this has me shook. okay hopeless. what was that chicks name again??? okay sky that was it! so sky lives with her adoptive mom has a best friend and if i remember correctly she kind of keeps to herself and hoes around a bit but you know what? we don't judge here. hoe it up sky. so she meets this guy dean holder. and her friend's are like
NONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONO
because usually when your bestie has the hots for a guy everyone thinks is a sociopath you TRY TO TELL THEM TO SHUT THOSE FEELINGS DOWN REAL QUICK. unfortunately dean and sky hit it off and she cant quite figure out how she knows him but she does. okay so um as previously mentioned it is march three months later and i remembering this book and going through the whole emotional experience all over again. and holy shit. was it an experience. so this is the most crazy plot twist i have ever read. and all i do is read. so thats saying something. you can sit there thinking of every possible way this could end and i would bet you a bunch of money you could never guess the ending. it was one of those books where the ending shocked me so much i had to put it down for a day just to process. i mean theres some cutesy romance and some drama but honestly if it werent a literary sin id say skip to the end of the book because the last 50 pages is where the magic happens. this book does have some triggers but because spoilers im gonna go ahead and just say enter at your own risk, if any adult material usually put in trigger warnings bothers you then this book will too. the book itself is well written and the characters arent annoying or shallow or anything which is nice. i think the plot twist is so amazing its hard to think of anything else. well i guess thats all for my blast from the past. if you like books that leave you shook read this.
