Today, Osmond says she’s happier the 秒 time around, and is grateful for the way her husband treats her.

According to press reports, Osmond’s 秒 marriage to 音乐 producer Brian Blosil wasn’t blissful 由 any means.

The amazing twilogy 由 Suzanne Collins is being made into a movie, and many people believe it will be bigger and better than Twilight.

Here's the trailer


Watch it and 评论 if 你 like it 或者 not.
Also, I highly recommend to read the Hunger Games trilogy.

The genres of the film/ 图书 is action.

Set in the near future, a girl called Katniss Everdeen volunteered to enter the Hunger Games, a game which is run 由 the government.
24 'tributes' will enter the arena and fight to the death until one person is remaining, who will be the winner.

Read Katniss' fights to stay alive as she battles the other 24 tributes to win her place as the winner.

Watch out for The Hunger Games, everyone will be talking about it within the following year.

Statement of Intent: If 你 read to the end, you'll notice that I do not advocate against 阅读 Twilight, just putting it into context for young readers. This was originally written for a 脸谱 audience of 老友记 until I decided to post it here as well. It was not intended to offend Twilight 粉丝 或者 readers, but to simply give a little perspective on why I believe Edward Cullen is a poor character to respect/admire. Should there be enough 流行的 demand, I'm willing to write a similar 文章 about Bella Swan.

"I still get nightmares," begins Johnny Truant, editor of House of Leaves ("House," 由 the way, always colored in blue). He goes on to explain how he stumbled upon the fateful document that would consume him. How Zampanò, an old and eccentric shut-in had left his critique of the Navidson Record scribbled on loose-leaf papers, book covers, and the backs of envelopes and even stamps scattered across his room. Johnny diligently collected all of the papers and organized them into the comprehensive thesis it was meant to be. It is an elaborate and detailed explanation of a documentary that, Johnny...

Who Am I?
By: Gabriela Acosta

Chapter 1
“How would 你 describe me Lilly?” I asked.
“Paula, you’re a very smart and unique person. But also mysterious. In a good way.” She replied.
“How am I mysterious? I mean, I never thought of myself that way.”
“Because you’re always so quiet around people. Not around me, of course. It’s like 你 shut yourself down completely, like 你 don’t want them to know who 你 are.”
“But 你 know I’m very shy! Besides, I’m not very good at socializing, 你 know? I always make myself sound like a total freak!

The 100 Most Influential 图书 Ever Written: The History of Thought from Ancient Times to Today

I am 由 no means a great votary of any kind of "Best" lists and find them too subjective and at times highfalutin. But this 列表 of the 100 most influential & mind-expanding 图书 ever written seemed quite apposite and all-encompassing. British literary critic & historian Seymour-Smith's survey of what he considers the 100 most influential 图书 is a searching inquiry into major thinkers, writers and philosophers. Seymour-Smith finds most modernist techniques already...

This was a book 报道 that I wrote for my English class. If you're thinking of 阅读 the Hunger Games, I suggest that 你 look at this...

The Hunger Games is a very 流行的 book among teens my age. It’s basically about a sixteen-year-old girl named Katniss whose sister (named Prim) was chosen to compete in the Hunger Games, which was an annual tournament where two children from each District (there are 12-ish) are forced to fight to the death on live television. Katniss apparently really loved her sister 或者 something, because she volunteers to go in Prim’s stead.
I first picked up this...

“Jacob!” I was yelling from the bath room. I was in 更多 pain than I ever thought was possible. It felt like something was clawing its way out of my stomach. This couldn’t be possible I’d been pregnant for only a couple of months. “JACOB BLACK GET 你 屁股 UP HERE!” I was screaming so loud I thought Jacob would go def. He ran into the bath room and kneeled down beside me. “What’s wrong?” “I need to get to grandpa.” He picked me up and drove me to the house and carried me in.

“What’s wrong with her?” My mother came rushing to my side. “Mom stop just get grandpa.”...

Author Randy Jernigan and Jackson
When I sat down to 晚餐 at a small Asian 小酒馆 with my old friend and writer Randy Jernigan, he quickly scanned the menu, searching for the healthiest foods. Today would not be one of his famous “cheat days” he shares on his social media pages–usually Mondays when he and best friend, Jackson Fackrell, indulge in what he terms a “free meal.” Today he opts for several veggie heavy dishes with less calories, and of course, minus the fried 白饭, 大米 and noodles. Later, as the waitress cleared the table, I notice that she cleared away his half eaten meal.

At the time I remembered our last...

Last 年 I put together a 列表 of 图书 that I read coupled with my opinions on them, using my reviews from good reads. I decided to keep it going.

Avatar: The Last Airbender (Smoke and Shadow #3)

I got to read this one like way back in March thanks to tumblr lol. But I decided to wait until I actually got a physical copy to review it on here.

Any how 10/10 *was satisfied with the amount of Azula*
As always, I really enjoyed the comic as a whole, I really liked this story line. The whole fear based theme and the Kemurikage were wonderful. I'd really 爱情 to know 更多 about those ladies.

Since everyone was so positive about my last article, I decided to make it a series of sorts. Different themes, maybe one 文章 a month. I am 23 and I still 爱情 all of the following books. People can enjoy them at any age, but these are especially great ones for kids and teens. There were so many to choose from, so I apologize that I had to leave out so many of my favorites. Let's all recapture youth! As always, these are in no particular order.

This is one of the few 幻想 novels that isn't an entire series. Not to offend anyone, but I do not like...

“Okay honey, it’s your first time on a plane!” my mother cooed me. I was five then so I didn’t hate it entirely. “I’m ready Mommy!” I said. We sat in section… 1A and 1B.
My mother was overly excited for the both of us because it was also her first time on a plane.
After takeoff, my mother spotted San Diego, which was the wrong direction. We were going to visit my grandparents in Michigan. It felt like the plane was dropping all of a sudden.
“Mommy, are we going to land now?” I asked. “I’m going to go talk to the pilot honey. I’ll be right back.” My mother...
