Happy Halloween

Just a quick post to say Happy Halloween!

I hope you all get loads of sweets and chocolate and eat until you feel sick and get scared out of you wits  (I hope you don't) and just have a good time.

I am going a Halloween Party to go to next week (which is a bit stupid because its after Halloween, but nevertheless, It will be fun ) - Yippee!. I am planning to go as a cat in pyjamas and my costume costume consists of pyjamas, a tail, whiskers drawn on with eyeliner and ears which I am going to attempt to copy a video and make them out of my own hair. I will take some pictures of my costume. I have a pair of back up ones just in case. I saw a Justin Bieber mask in Poundland the other day and was tempted to go as that. It would have been funny........ why didn't I buy it?

Anyway, I hope you have an amazing Halloween and I will be see you in the next post
Have a great night! (see what I did there?!)

Ma Semaine (Say this in a french accent) x

It's been a bit of a mixed week for me.

Plus side - ONE MORE DAY OF SCHOOL!! It has occurred to me that most other people in the blogosphere have had half term this week, but for me its next week. I am so excited - the thought of actually getting some decent sleep is soooo appealing.

Down side - when I go back to school, I have FIVE tests in one week, three in one day. I don't know about you but I would call this excessive. I have English, French, German, R.S and P.S.E (first aid - St johns ambulance thingy). Fun. Also, I have a cold.

I'd also like to let you know about a poll I am running - so go check it out on my side bar. Also, I a always want to post what people want to read, so if you want me to do a post of any sort, let me know!!

Have a great day

Helena's Reviews: The New Skulduggery Pleasant!

I've decided to do a review on the most recent book I read: Skulduggery Pleasant - Kingdom Of The Wicked!

This is the newest book in the Skulduggery Pleasant Series - a series about a skeleton detective and his 17 year old side kick Valkyrie Cain (Stephanie). I'm not going to give to much info on the rest  of the series so if you haven't read them, I suggest you do so as they are AMAZING!!

In this book, mortals (people without magic) are suddenly devoloping magical powers and nobody knows why. And then there's Kitana. A teenage girl who along with here friends becomes infected. Becomes powerful. Becomes corrupt. And not just with a small amount of magic .....

I really, really enjoyed reading this book. When my friend first lent my the book, I wasn't really that excited about it. I'd loved the series but for some reason I just wasn't excited about it. However, once I started reading it ........ well that was when it changed. This book is full of mystery and excitment, adventure and action and is a gripping novel. I loved every single page! I saw the return of many of the best characters, in loads of diffferent and unexpected ways. Its also quite a funny book considering the plot is quite dark; there is quite alot of sarcasm which lightens the mood and make it a more enjoyable . There are loads of twists and turns in the plot and its not one of those books where you can easily guess the end. My description above is based on the burb but the actual story is alot more than what it said. It was quite a suprising book but that was one of the best things about it. So basically ................. I LURVE THIS BOOK!!


I hope this has tempted you to read this book (you should)!!
I am currently reading the Medusa series and so far love it so there maybe a review soon ..........

Stand Up To Cancer!

This friday there is a new massive charity event hitting the UK - Stand Up To Cancer! As the name suggests, this event is all in aid of cancer charitys. It's a little bit like Children in Need or Sport Relief. This time Channel 4 and Cancer Research have joined forces to create one massive week of entertainment. There will be programmes through out the week with a final 'telethon' on the friday.

It was started in the US by Gweneth Paltrow and was massive over there. They raised £80 million in 1 hour! And now it has been bought to the UK!

My school is having a Mufti (Own Clothes) day in support of it which will be quite fun and I think we might be doing some other stuff as well.

I think this is a really great idea and I am really supporting it.

                         I stand up to cancer. Do you??
