Blog Post Title

If I were to write a book right now, the title would be "How to Fake Being Awake and Feeling Peppy." Scratch that- I obviously have no idea how to do that, hence the lack of eye-liner, hair in a messy clip, and Toms on my feet today (the kids said the shoes were "baller," which I'm pretty sure means they think I'm a rich white bitch who spends too much on her plain canvas slip-ons). It doesn't really matter, since all this meme requires me to do is list a few of the more unique titles in my bookshelf.

For formality sake, and since the Crazy For Books site requires it, here we are:

Book Blogger Hop

“Let’s talk crazy book titles. Highlight one or two (or as many as you like!) titles in your personal collection that have the most interesting titles. If you can’t find any, feel free to find one on the internet.”

Confession: Sorry Crazy for Books, but I replaced all your exclamation points with periods. Life's not that exciting here up in the BB and I don't want to traumatize my readers. No sudden movements.

So, titles. First of all, I'm not generally phased by titles. It could be called The Book, and if it seems interesting and receives a few nods I'm game. A fellow teacher asked me today how a lesson from a certain book had gone and, given the fact I don't really dwell on book names, I was temporarily confused. But, they're necessary and can be interesting.

The Sex Lives of Cannibals by J. Maartan Troost
Bowchickabowwow. Not really- it's actually a really interesting travel log about someone who goes to a topical island and learns about the natives.

The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep and Didn't Have To by DC Pierson
Why couldn't I be born this way? What the hell? Do you not understand how much I could get done if sleep wasn't an issue? I could rule the whole mother-effing world, dammit. The book, by the way, is just okay- teenage boys, comic books, sci-fi, angst- you get the picture.

Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs
So I haven't actually read this, but it is on my shelf. I remember first hearing about it while in high school and was instantly captivated by the title (one of the few times a title hooked me)- rest assured, I wasn't a horny little strumpet like some of the teens I know (that's my story, and I'm sticking to it). I'd tell you what it was about, but I haven't read it. It's on the list.

Isn't it neat how I always complain about being tired and busy but decide to use time I could spend sleeping or being productive for blogging?


  1. Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog! =) So cool that you are an IB grad. I have heard from so many people how prepared IB students will be for college but I have to say I am dreading my senior year this year. Have to do my extended essay, group IV, and still maintain A's and B's in all my classes. I am already feeling stressed. =P Ah well. I am almost done!! And yes, I do read more than YA but I haven't liked a whole lot of what my English Teachers have had us read. I did like WE and A Doll's House. Oh and Antigone. And Othello. So okay maybe I do like a few of the books. ;) I also just read Lady Macbeth for class and I LOVED it. What a great story. I had a hard time putting it down. Anyway, I am ending this now because I am writing too much. ;)

  3. Ha! I found to two days ago that my boss only sleeps 3-4 hours every night. I have always thought he was an amazing go-go-go machine and Now I see why.
    If only I could get that much sleep every night for my whole life and feel no negative effects...... sigh.
    That books sounds wicked but might make me too jealous :-/
