And Again..

More Friends today. Gosh, I just can't get over how damn good this show is. I want to have friends exactly like Ross, Chandler, Joey, Monica, Pheobe, and Rachel. Ha, fat chance though. But a girl can dream!

So I started The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks today, we'll see how that goes. The Host really put me off of reading and blogging, so I need to get back into the swing of things.

It's an Addiction.

I've watched 2 seasons of Friends today.

Maybe I need to see a doctor. This has got to be unhealthy.

Bo Burnham!

If you don't know Bo Burnham, you have been missing out on life.
Seriously. You have been deprived.
Before you do anything else, watch this. Now.

Love it?! Genius. And if you want to know the exact lyrics, just go to youtube and search the video.

I love Bo Burnham. He is so smart with his jokes! Yes, he may be vulgar at times, but seriously, its so clever. Some of my favorite videos are: 

New Math

and Bo Fo Sho
His Cd is on iTunes and in stores. Its so great. There are a couple songs on there that aren't on Youtube, which makes it all the better. Also, he has a Comedy Central Special coming up. Its on March 27th! So damnn excited.

Look him up on his Youtube channel! (:

The Host by Stephenie Meyer

Title: The Host
Author: Stephenie Meyer
Pages: 619
Rating: 4/5

Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity has succumbed.

When Melanie, one of the few remaining "wild" humans is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Wanderer probes Melanie's thoughts, hoping to discover the whereabouts of the remaining human resistance. Instead, Melanie fills Wanderer's mind with visions of the man Melanie loves—Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she has been tasked with exposing. When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.

Review: Stephenie Meyer, I am very disappointed in you. 

This book was truly not that great. For 100 pages I was just waiting for something remotely interesting happen. And after all the hype that it has gotten, I was expecting so much. Nothing much was explained for a while, so I was very confused. Wanda (I hated the name, becuase that was my grandma's name, and it did not fit Wanderer) and Ian's relationship was weird. I felt like it didn't really fit. He was clingy and acted like a teenage boy for most of the story.

But don't get me wrong, the middle and end of this very breathtakingly unexpected. I loved the imagery it proposed. With all the different planets and the darkness and intricacies of the cave. I wish you all could see the pictures I had in my head when I read this. And I loved Melanie, Jared, and Jamie's triangle of love. So amazing and long-lasting. Also, the selflessness expressed in the book was awesome.

And the conflict! It was great! The action could have been better, but the tension made most of the story flow. I seriously was on my toes for a section of the story, because I was just waiting for something to happen. And when, as a reader, I inferred that something would happen,  I was wrong almost all of the time. Something completely out of the blue would come up and slap me in the face. That really was the best part about reading The Host. 

I would only recommend this to people who like Science-Fiction and Romance. More Romance I think, than Science-Fiction. Stephenie Meyer was right to call this "sci-fi for people who don't like sci-fi." Don't read this if you are looking for a companion to Meyer's Twilight series. You will just get your hopes crushed. 

And you must be thinking, Emily, why did you give it a 4/5 if you didn't LOVE it? Well, the answer to that is that the breathtakingly creative ending made up for the well... shitty beginning. The ending saved this whole book. So don't give up on it. Even though this book made me not want to read for a month... that's besides the point. Read it. You just might like it.
