Im The Sheriff In This Town; This Is The Way I Do Things!

Howdy Ya'll(:

I hope you guys have had a awesome Monday! Since Monday tends to be very "sucky". If I had to pick a favorite day of the week it would have to be Saturday, hands down! Not only can you sleep in that morning but you can also stay up late, which you cant (well not me, since I have school) do on any other day of the week.

Instead of starting with a book review which I had actually planned, I figured I would explain to you how I want to do reviews, and hauls. After reading and watching many posts and videos of others doing those, it does get a little old. For each of the different type of posts I added my own little ingredients and twisted the recipe a little to make more LISA-fied!!! Making it easier for not just me to write, but also for you to read and understand. So lets get started!:D

Hauls- Since Im typing instead of making videos this might be a little bit harder. But I love taking pictures, so a lot of those will be up; of the cover, the back, the side, what the chapters look like, and anything special that sticks out. Usually on the back or the inside flap theirs a summary that the author has written which I will also add.

Reviews- I love reading the summaries on the back of books. During hauls I cant tell you what I think of (since obviously I havent read it yet), so Ill type that up and than tell you my own summary of the book. This shows you the difference between my summary of the book and the authors. Many times the back doesnt even give the book enough credit to how good it is. But sometimes the story line wasnt as good at it was said to be. Again a couple of pictures will be added.

So thanks for taking the time to check out my blog and read my post!(: Lisa

PS. I plan of figuring out how to add more pictures and do some more editing on the blog layout, adding more pictures of my friends, family and ,myself and adding some other small things. If the font is too small or you simply cant see it very well, please dont hesitate to comment and let me know. Ill fix it asap!(:

My Book Blog?

To be honest, Im not sure how to start this post off. I dont want to start my story with "Once upon a time..." I want this post (and my whole blog) to be fun and interesting to read. I want this to represent me and who I am. In a way Im really excited to write my own blog and just get going right away. But then again I want to formally introduce myself to you guys and tell you about my reasons for even making this. Not introducing yourself is just plain rude!
Well HEEYY There:D *waves* What's cooking good looking?(;
My name is lisa, Im sixteen years old, proud german and I live in the USA. Im a sophomore in high school, and I love reading. Which brings me to why I created this blog. I love watching reviews, book hauls and bookshelf tours. Theres nothing better than laying in a warm cozy bed, with a small light on, either at night or on a rainy day, reading a good book. You can find me every Saturday at either barnes and nobles or borders, looking for the next best story, usually gulping it down within one read.
On the side bar (<---- ) theres a list of books Im currently reading, if you have good book that you suggest or a book you were interested in buying but not sure if its worth the read, just comment below, and I would be happy to make a review :D
To take my love for reading and books further I created this blog, I hope you will follow me in my reading journey and enjoy the ride (please keep your hands and feet in at all times).
