Hello all! I'd like first and foremost to apologize for being completely absent from this blog. You see, I was bogged down in school. (You know, school. It's that place you have to go to learn stuff, but really, you'd probably rather be reading? But you have to go to become "smart.") But now I am officially done, and free at last!! I want to celebrate!

I also want to put up a book review that Sophia wrote a while ago for the boys' site (why not for us, Sophia? whhhhhyyy??). I won't be a mean and sneaky girl and leave out the part where she talks about how awesome the Boys Rule Boys Read site is, because she's right! Again, I'm so sorry for not doing it sooner.

Island: Book One: Shipwreck
This book is by Gordon Korman. Even though this isn't about the book, I need to explain something to you guys. OK, so I'm a girl, that doesn't mean I want to take over your website. I just think your website is totally awesome! I love reading. Now, Shipwreck is the first book in the Island series. It's about a bunch of of boys and girls who were on a boat, then the boat got in this storm, and the six kids got washed up on a deserted island.
I think you should read this book, it's awesome and I love it!! Gordon Korman is a very good writer and I think you should read all his books. The ones I like are his Island series, Dive series, and his Everest series.
Most likely they're at the library, but if you want, you could also buy the books. They're cool. In the Island series, there are two girls and four boys. In the next book, Survival, they have to survive on the island until they can Escape, book three. Gordon Korman writes awesome books!!

Now that I am finally done with school, I plan on reading a lot more books...for fun. And posting the reviews on here, of course. And any more recommendations you want to throw my way, I'll actually have time to read now!

Free Movies, Books, and Popcorn! (You can't beat that!)

Hello Girls! I apologize for the long gap between entries. I need to fix that, and add some goodies to this site.

I just wanted to let you all know that on Tuesday, November 11th, we are having another G.O.O.F. Off day here at ImaginOn, which means LOTS of great stuff to do. For starters, we'll be showing the movie Shrek at 10:00 a.m. and passing out some movie trivia sheets to see if you all can keep up with how many fairytales are mentioned. At 2:00, we'll be showing The Lion King 1 and 1/2. Did I mention there will be lots and lots of free popcorn, too?

In the meantime, you ladies now have an OFFICIAL display (and yeah, it's totally bigger than the boys' display, so there) and many bookmarks (way cooler than the boys'). Please come by and visit, or send in book reviews, and I'll hook you up with some free books (just like, you guessed it, the BOYS!).

Here are some rockin' recommendations from me.

So Emmy's parents have been really distant, and her nanny is HORRIBLE. On top of that, she can hear the class rat talking (and he is NOT very nice). When Emmy discovers that her nanny may be drugging her parents to make them forget her, will she be able to save the day and get her family back? Read this book to find out.

Hate That Cat by Sharon Creech
I was a huge fan of Love That Dog by Miss Creech, and I was pleased to find this sequel in a stack of new books. It is about the same boy who is writing poetry about how much he dislikes cats and misses his old dog, Sky. When he gets an adorable kitten for a Christmas present, will he be able to resist the temptation of the fluffy cuteness? (I mean, who can resist that, really?)
