[ mood | dirty ]

Title: Stray
Author: Rachel Vincent
Copyright date: 2007
Publisher: Mira
How many pages: 618
How long it took me to read: Hahaha like 3 weeks. It took me a while to get into it, and I was also reading a bunch of comics... so there :P

Category: Young Adult fiction?
I learned about this book from: Perusing the shelves of Meijer one night
This book was purchased at: Meijer, that same night
Other books by this author: n/a

Main characters: Faythe
Favorite characters: Faythe and her brothers, Abby, Marc sometimes lol
Least favorite Characters: Miguel... ewww.
When and Where the story takes place: Down South I think... around Mississippi.
Plot in a nutshell: Faythe is a shapeshifter... she and her family can turn into very big kitties. She is also very independent and kind of left her Pride to go to school, but then tabbies (the single females) start getting kidnapped so she returns home (not by choice, mind you). Things start unfolding from there...

What I liked best: I liked how independent and self-sufficient Faythe was. She really kicks ass.
What I liked least: See above. She was a little too hard-headed at times lol. But also, I disliked how long it took me to get into this book. But near the middle it started to pick up for me.

What parts could you relate to: Wanting to be treated with respect. I also want to be that independent.
Did you learn anything from this book: Kind of, but it's hard to put into words.
Would you read it again, or give it away: I'll probably end up giving it to the library, but I would read a sequel.
Would this book make a good movie?: Yeah, it could.
Quote from the book that sums it up: "Fortunately, my new responsibility came with one awesome perk: all the ass I could kick. What self-respecting girl could say no to that?" --Faythe, pg 618

Overall Rating: Unique, entertaining, though a bit slow at first... this book takes girl power to a whole new level :)

So today I spent all day in my pajamas, reading for the most part. I even showered, and then put the same pjs back on. DON'T JUDGE ME! They were clean.

Yesterday I hung out with Laura and Laura. Of course, the night before I couldn't sleep when I had to be to work at 6:30 a.m. I laid down around 12, 12:30 and apparently thought to much and could calm down enough to rest. The next time I looked at the clock, it was 2:30. Shit. I thought "If I'm not asleep by 4:30, I'm just staying awake". Luckily, I switched and laid my head at the foot of the bed and fell asleep soon after. Needless to say, at work I was a zombie.

Then wouldn't ya know it, when I got home I couldn't fall asleep AGAIN. But I finally did and woke up at around 5. Laura and I went to Red Robin, and then went to Laura's. Confusing, I know lol. How bout this. Laura and I went to Laura Loo's. I call the other Laura, Laura Loo.

So we got there and started planning the crappy horror movie night that we're hosting in May. This was while waiting for 9 to approach because we were going to see "Run, Fat Boy, Run". Good movie, btw. When we got back from that, we took pictures to put on the invites. Which were pretty hilarious.

Today, after finishing one book, continuing a Buffy tradeback, and while watching tv, I started to work on the invitation. But it pissed me off, so I stopped haha. I pretty much have the background down, the main image. Just gotta do text stuff. Maybe I'll let you see it when I'm done. If you're lucky, punk B)

I'm gonna try to work on it more now, but I'll probably just get angry again lol
