Hi, im new and i thought i'd introduce myself.. My name is Amanda. im thirteen. Im a very very busy reader... i guess you could call me a hopeless romantic because I like realistic fiction about teens and love. I also am a huge vampire fanatic. I recently got three books a few days ago... I got a book called "Mean Chicks, Cliques, and Dirty Tricks". its sorta a self help book about getting through the day confident and with courage. Another was a book called "Thirsty". Its a new vampire book out. I havent read any of it yet but it looks really good! The last one was another self-help book about being confident, cool, and capable of handling anything. that sounds really good since im a bit of a hot head. its called "Girl talk". My favorite author is a girl named Sarah Dessen. Shes amazing with words and writes the coolest, cutest, teenage love storys ever! I've read two books of hers... "This Lullaby" and "Someone like you" (if youve ever seen the movie "How to Deal" its based on this and another of her books). Another of hers is on my shelf waiting to be read... "That Summer". And theres a new book out by her that i really want to get called "The Truth About Forever". She also wrote two other books that i may read and i may not called "Dreamland" and "Keeping the Moon". OMG!!! I JUST FOUND OUT SHE HAS A JOURNAL ON THIS SITE!!!! OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!!! I ll Post Laters!! SRY BYEBYE!!!
