I am Number Four! Ok I'm not really *shifty eyes*

Well after knowing about the film since December last year and going "Oh, I'd like to see that" and then finding out it was an actual book first well I forbade myself to watch the film until I read the book. Well, can you believe it, it took me 7 months to buy the book and after I finished reading it within 2 days I then went and bought the DVD, I loved it THAT much and I do not love often.

The book was just phenomenal. I have read sci-fi books before, but this was just excellent and mind blowing. Normally I tend to read fantasy books, like Harry Potter, for example and Andy McDermott with is action/adventure with a little bit of fantasy thrown in. But this wasn't cheese! It was cream! (and please don't be disgusting here people.)

After reading the book, I obviously did a bit of research and found out the next book isn't that far away, at the end of August! Already I have pre-ordered and bought Inheritance by Christopher Paolini, which I CANNOT WAIT to read, but I may also have to pre-order The Power of Six also. Exquisite in writing style has Pittacus Lore, just brilliant!

So, my reading is back on track and unfortunately my writing suffers for it. Haven't written a thing in 3 days and I feel awful, so this weekend I am going to write until my hands bleed as this following week I have a wedding to go to!
TKMaxx has once again provided for me and I bought a very lovely tight, body hugging dress to show off my slim figure and curves...well, so my parents say... =/ The dress is from Rachael and Chloe...I haven't heard of the name, though I am impressed with the style of the dress. I already have my shoes, I bought them from Next last year for about £40, I named them "I'm going to look sexy in Rome" shoes. They almost killed my feet, but after a year of breaking the little buggers in, I have won and my feet no hurty any more, but I am stupidly tall! Which is all good.

Right well I think I have waffled for a good while, so toodleloo and I shall be back with another thrilling adventure of Abi's What a Year!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2...I spill the tears...

Well guys and girls, I saw the film, I cried like a wimp, I got angered at some scenes, I was annoyed at the near end and I would see it over and over again.

Being a complete and utter Harry Potter nutter, I feel that I should warn those who haven't read the won't understand it. No, really, you won't.

It's not that I think you are incapable of understanding the complex storyline that Rowling has created, but from all of the books, the detail that the films have missed out, you could not possibly understand the true meaning behind the end film(s) if you have not read the books.

For those who have read the books, good luck if you haven't watched the film. The soundtrack to the film is just amazing and I cannot stop listening to it. Also, I have purchased Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows wii lol, so guess what I'm doing in my spare time when I'm not reading, writing or going to work? :)

Hmm, where to start...?

Hello to all who shall be reading this drivel! Not that I like talking about myself, I think I'd find it fundamentally boring if I continued talking about myself when really people full on see what the hell I've said in my facebook, and recently just...not nice. So! Here is where my mumblings and random imblings will begin.

First mumbling, the weather. Now I know, because I am English, we always talk about the weather and yes Ok, it's true we do, but do you know why? It's unpredictable! I kid you not, our MET office is crap! Up and down the country people get various weather happenings, boiling hot, snowy, freezing cold rain- though down here in Devon, we usually get nice weather and for the 3rd year in a row, we've had another crap summer. I think I can safely say that we had our summer in April and it lasted 2 weeks. Though I didn't see those two weeks as I was working, but I saw loads of burnt people- so it's a good assumption to say it was hot.

Second mumbling. I was told, just 3 days ago, that the playing field near where I live would be subjected to a music festival for 2 days. Today is the first day and currently they have erected a bouncy castle which is right in front of my window- making me and my pj's subject to ridicule from children and childish drunken adults, staring at me while I write... Not to mention, the music is just terrible...It's meant to last until midnight tonight...I'd have smothered myself by then.

Third mumbling. I came across something the other day that annoyed me so much, I ended up having a "shouting" match at this girl about how silly her notion was. Suffice to say I think she hates me, but I have been banging my head against a brick wall with people like her, so I shall shout this right now..


Seriously, are people really that stupid to think that they are real? When I was young I always knew the difference between what was real and what wasn't. I could clearly comprehend the fantasy side of life by the time I was ten when I found out that Father Christmas didn't exist. Yes it completely killed all belief in me, yet I still retained a happy medium that some beliefs are meant to be told, so that children could live a more friendly innocent childhood. HAH! The "children" I was talking to were 15 years old and wanted to be bitten and sexually assaulted by vampires. Um, is this a friendly innocent childhood that kids are being raised in? Where did it go wrong? When did innocence leave children at such an early age? What is going on?

I could blame Twilight, I could blame Vampire Diaries, in fact, I could blame all of the authors who have created such tripe to feck-up the minds of senseless idiotic girls who cannot understand the basic fundamentals of what is real or make-believe. But the majority rules. Morals of good triumphing over evil has blended into evil sucking the life from good people, so what's the next step? Where's the next trend going to take us?

One day I hope that the innocence in children will be brought back and they will be raised in Enid Blyton and the Far Away Tree...yet that is a hope that may never come to pass.
