My Newest Books and A Movie
Since I found out my Les Miserables book was a bit damaged(half eaten page and also folded/stitched into the book and a smashed corner)I decided to order a new one. This time from amazon. As for the movie I had to buy something so I could get free shipping.

===============================================================================


#1. Les Miserables
By: Victor Hugo

I never knew that he was the same person that wrote the Hunchback of Notredame. I always heard that name on tumblr(victor) so when I looked up the book to buy it again it also showed the Hunchback of Notredame. So I was pretty much just 'holy s**t' but it makes sense. Both are based in France so I probably should have made the connection sooner. Update of me reading it: I am not finished with the book yet but I have read a little. And as you can see it is a very thick book. I have a big stack of books I haven't read yet so I won't be finishing this one for a while.
Description:
Victor Hugo's towering novel of Jean Valjean, his unjust imprisonment, and his lifelong flight from a relentless police officer.

#2. Vampire Knight Vol. 17
By: Matsuri Hino

I have two copies of this book. I just ordered one and I was given 2. -__-
Other than that I think I heard that there are only 2 more volumes left to go. Update from reading this book: It was awesome. ^^

Description:
Kaname has returned to Cross Academy to kill Sara Shirabuki. Zero has joined forces with Sara, leaving Yuki in the middle of the conflict. Even if Kaname’s ultimate goal is to kill all purebloods, is Yuki ready to fight him?

#3. Jane Eyre
By: Charlotte Bronte

I had heard about this book in Beastly(the book I can't remember if they mentioned it in the movie) and this one Teen Wolf fanfic I found randomly. Update from reading it: I haven't read it yet but I have an idea of what its about. And it sounds like a pretty good story. As for buying this specific book; I just really liked the cover.
Description:
Jane Eyre is the story of a small, plain-faced, intelligent, and passionate English orphan. Jane is abused by her aunt and cousin and then attends a harsh charity school. Through it all she remains strong and determinedly refuses to allow a cruel world to crush her independence or her strength of will. A masterful story of a woman's quest for freedom and love. Jane Eyre is partly autobiographical, and Charlotte Brontë filled it with social criticism and sinister Gothic elements. A must read for anyone wishing to celebrate the indomitable strength of will or encourage it in their growing children.

#4. Obsidian (A Lux Novel)
By: Jennifer L. Armentrout
I wanted to get free shipping but there was nothing else I wanted to buy. So I just randomly searched for books and this one seemed kinda interesting. Update after reading it: I loved this book! I also kinda reminds me of Twilight but thats not why I liked it. Now onto the 2nd book...whenever I buy it.

Description:
Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up. And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens. The hot alien living next door marks me. You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don't kill him first, that is.

#5. Van Helsing (Widescreen Edition) (2004)
I haven't seen this movie in a LONG time so I figured I'd buy it. I also still needed about $5 more for the free shipping. Update from watching it: It was alot cheesier than I remember but it was good. It also has Hugh Jackman, that girl that plays in the Underworld movies, and also the guy that plays Faramir in LOTR.
Description:
Legendary monster hunter Van Helsing (Hugh Jackman) is summoned to mysterious Transylvania on a mission that will thrust him into a sweeping battle against the forces of darkness!
