Do you ever think about the word ‘can’t’
Like, when you say, “Why can’t you get me some ice cream?”
You’re really saying, “Why can not you get me some ice cream?”
How have I gone through my entire life as a writer and not realized this
I had a similar epiphany with “Don’t you dare” being “Do not you dare.”
English is weird.
Forever grateful that English is my first language.
I FINALLY FINISHED!

Art by Me
I before E
except when you run a feisty heist on a weird beige foreign neighbour

So. I’ve never done this before, but I’ve been making a reading list (books I’ve read and will read) for 2013. So far, the have read list is pretty short, but I have this problem with buying so many books and I have two shelves of unread books on my bookcase. I’m making this list to challenge myself to read all of them. I’m not in school at the moment, I work part-time, and the only thing that would keep me distracted would be middle aged british actors and middle aged musicians.
SO I HAVE NO REASON TO NOT READ.
Here is my Have Read list (on the right):
- Shiver : Stiefvater (Nook)
- Warm Bodies : Morian (Nook)
- Gray : Wentz
- Every You, Every Me : Levithan
- Boy Meets Boy : Levithan
Currently Reading (center):
- Clockwork Princess : Clare
Reading List Goal (in no particular order (left)):
- It’s Kind Of A Funny Story : Vizzini
- I Don’t Care About Your Band : Klausner
- Beautiful Music For Ugly Children : Cronn-Mills
- Everyday : Levithan
- Stolen : Christopher
- The Future Of Us : Asher and Mckler
- Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac : Zevin
- Just Listen : Dessen
- Speak : Anderson
- I Am Number Four : Lore
- Peeps : Westerfeld
- Being Henry David : Armistead
- Guitar Notes : Amato
- Flipped : Van Draanen
I’m strongly considering doing individual blogs about them as or after I read each of them as kind of a review. I’m going to bust my butt to get this list complete (and hopefully other books too if I finish all of them) this year!
