*gasps* For Fun?!

So all of these serious talks and posts and discussions and SO FORTH, have gotten me all tired out.
Lately I haven't been feeling my whole entire self, and just last night I started to feel a tad dizzy. I have no idea if it was from my lrecently lack of sleep, but I do think it was part of it. I stayed up really lte, and everything that's been going on is either SCHOOL, POLITICS, OR NANOWRIMO.
I've been reading for fun! I just fiished the second book in a series, and it's called "THe Penderwicks on Gardam Street". It's true, it could be a book for some kids a tad younger than me, but it fit my mood everytime I read it. It was just what I needed whn I was bored, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I enjoyed the first one, called "The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy". And I'm currently reading a book called "So Yesterday". It's by the same author who wrote Uglies (in my last post, I believe). I enjoy hi books because they're fiction, fantasy, and sometimes they really make you think about stuff.
Both authors (Jeanne Birdsall, The Penderwicks. And Scott Westerfeld, Uglies--and many others in that series-- and So Yesterday) aren't Christian, but I do enjoy reading them.
Do you know how hard it is to find good boks these days?
One without indecent things (innapropriate stuff no kid wants to read), cussing like there's no tomorrow, and etc? It's VERY hard. I can barely find one. Much less, one that's Christian too!
So, when I tell you I like these books, I think you might like them too. But I'm a girl, so some of you might be like, "WHAT is she talking about? I wouldn't want to read those." And it's true, you might not. But at least I've been able to find those.
Now if you have any book recommendations, LET ME KNOw, NOW (or later, or soon), okay? And I'm for real! If it's your first time visiting this blog, go ahead and post a comment on which book was your favorite (or still is), or if you've never commented, comment now! Or if you have, and you always comment, what's keeping you from doing it now?

:D I need new books!
