My new favorite book is......

I have just finished reading a fantabulous book entitled The 13th Reality by James Dashner.

My mom totally surpised me and my siblings by making an un-announced stop at Barnes&Noble bookstore last Wednesday. I wasn't sure what book she was getting but then I remembered, "Oh yeah...That book she told me about a couple months ago. What was it called again?" Sadly, my feeble mind just couldn't remember. As soon as we paid and the book was nestled into my grubby, little hands, I started reading, and before I knew it, I was hooked.

I couldn't believe how good The 13th Reality was. I had a hard time tearing myself away from the book for even a second. Of course I kind of have a life so I had to occasionally...........at least for potty breaks. Anyway, I absolutely loved The 13th Reality, and if I was a critic I would give it 5 stars. If I had 5 thumbs, I'd also give it a 5-thumb salute! It was one of the best books I've ever read. Yes, that's right I don't care about Leven Thumps anymore. (Are you surprised?) Although the cliffhanging ending disappointed me, I still thought the book was awesome. The main character's name is Atticus Higginbottom. I've fallen in love with the name Atticus now, and of course added it immediately onto the list of my favorite names. It's right at the top with Ophelia. Atticus James.... Now that sounds nice.


Reality TV isn't where it's at, baby. Turn that set off and read reality instead.....The 13th Reality!

No offense, but even if it was a romance novel, I would never fall in love with someone named Atticus Higginbottom. It sounds like Attic Huggen Bottom, which doesn't particularly appeal to me... :)

Cam: Right...

Brynn: I would! It's a very interesting name.

Mr. Dashner: I almost passed out when I saw that you commented on my Blog. You're my new favorite author also. Thank you for taking the time to respond. You have just made it to the top of my awesome meter!

Reading an awesome book is WAY better than watching TV...and isn't it awesome that YOU got to read it first?

I love the name Ophelia, too! :)
