Emancipation Proclamation

I was recently recommended a story by a good friend, it’s fan fiction which obviously made me a little wary! Not only that, it’s Twilight fan fiction (I hate twilight) so I was even more wary! However I put my feelings on these things to one side and gave it a shot, and my god it is fantastic! It’s so well written and the story is incredible!
The story is set in the modern day and it is the story of a girl, Isabella, in America who is born into slavery and lives the first 16 years of her life in terrible conditions in the Swan household. However on her 16th birthday Carlisle Cullen arrives at the Swan household and buys her. The story follows her as she learns to live a different kind of life, and she falls in love with Edward, Carlisle’s son, a ruggedly handsome and totally gorgeous teenage boy! Again, I’m not a fan of the love story to be honest, I hate how it’s all so predictable, but due to the situation and the perfectly written characters it is a totally believable romance. The book will have you laughing and crying and feeling the character’s emotions.
I swear, I cannot rave about this story enough, it should be published because wow! I am really picky with books and this has just blown me away.
Get reading folks! You wont regret it!

Well yesterday I managed to mow the lawn, which is good because it’s raining today! Aside from that, nothing interesting!
BB update: not a lot going on, aside from Sophie changing her name, legally, to Dogface. Evidently people really will do anything to be on TV, I despair. No self respecting person should change their name to Dogface(or Halfwit as one of the others is now known) but apparently no body respects themselves anymore because that’s just not “cool”.
Anyway, my main news is that last night I went to bed with a book, notably “The Taking” by Dean Koontz, and was reading when I heard noises like footsteps and general creaking like someone was in the house. I got up to investigate, already very nervous due to the terrifying nature of the book, and found nothing, so back to bed I went. I carried on reading, still hearing noises, then the guinea pigs started squeaking, so I’m thinking “oh dear god, there is definitely something or someone in the house,” so downstairs I go again to comfort them and check again, still I see nothing. I shut the kitchen window just in case and return to bed, still noises, eventually they stop and no big scary man tried to abduct me or anything but still a very scary night. Still not sure if it was the scary book playing with my mind or something was going on.
Have woken this morning to a poorly tummy, yet again. This really sucks.
