The Maze Runner

Last week, my buddy Jesse forced me to read this book called The Maze Runner...he said it was ridiculously addicting and I just had to read it...Well he was totally right! I read it in 2 days, the beginning was just like any ol' book so I spent a day reading about the first 100 pages. The second day I got to the addicting part at when I usually go to bed and read it straight through the last 300 pages to the end! It was an amazing book but Iv got to say that it kinda freaked me out, I'm pretty sure I had a couple nightmares about it:) But it was because the author is so good at what he does, he described the creatures in this story so well that I have a terribly accurate image stuck in my brain...I bet that its his goal in life for people (that rarely have nightmares about books or movies) to have a nightmare about his writing! I never want to meet this guy though! The fact that his mind can make up this plot and creatures is disgusting, and although I'm glad he did because I love it, I'm completely scared of him! Again, it is an amazing book and I would recommend it to anyone, boys and girls, as long as you aren't deathly afraid of scary creatures:) Oh and if you have read The Hunger Games (another amazing book) you will definitely love this!!!
So for the Quote of the Day today I spent a long time deciding if I would put a couple really hilarious quotes or really serious plot changing quotes from the book...I went with the serious ones because those tell you a little tiny bit about the book!

Quotes of the Day!
"My name is Thomas, he thought
That...that was the only thing he could remember about his life....he didn't know where he came from, or how he'd gotten inside the dark lift, or who his parents were. He didn't even know his last name."

"The walls slammed shut behind him, the echo of its boom bouncing off the ivy-covered stone like mad laughter"
-The Maze Runner, James Dashner

Im 14!!!

Yesterday was my 14th Birthday!!! I had a fantastic day! In the morning I came upstairs to a table full of presents, I got to open one which had an amazing shirt in it that I wore to church with the skirt that I had just finished making...After I unwrapped It my mom made me re wrap the box because she said the box balanced out the table perfectly;) When I got to church I had my Bishops interview...It was really fun. We talked about Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, and Lord of the Rings most of the time:) My miamaids teacher brought in yummy cupcakes to class too:) After church I came home and I was surprised with 2 of my favorite families their for dinner, we had a mini thanksgiving meal and when we were about to start opening presents someone started feeling sick and actually ended up throwing up. So their family left pretty quickly...Present time! I got a bottle of vanilla scented lotion and bubble bath from Mindy B. A twix bar and an awesome necklace from Jesse he actually made the beads somehow from clay and baked them! A puzzle book, bubble wand, and twix bars from Paige. Some coupons from Lilly for a free spa day. Some super cool knee length socks from Sam and Sarah. A coupon from Mindee and Eddie promising that they will buy me the New Moon Collectors Edition when it comes out on DVD next week! And I got an SD card for my phone and an amazing turquoise purse from my parents! Right when I finished opening presents my best bud Victoria dropped by to give me a really cute cake and a bag full of candy;) Toria, her bro, and her mom stayed for cake! My cake was fantastic! My mom and Mindee V. made was an ice cream cake with Oreo ice cream and chocolate/vanilla swirl cake with snicker bars on top! It was yummiful:) Well there is my day! I will post pictures later!
