The future of us : Book review (2?)

So , good news I have finished the Harry Potter series . ( 3rd time and counting ) and even more good news me and a select group of friends are going to the Harry Potter studio tours in London in June . Too say I am excited is prehaps an understatement . (SUPER.AMAZINGLY.FANATICLY.IN.LOVE.WITH.THE.KNOWLEDGE.THAT.IAM.GOING.TO THE.ACTUAL.SETS) *cough Now thats out of the way cough*
So yeah , In the abscence of the Harry Potter books I have preceeded to reading
The future of us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler .

I've just finished the book today . I was really excited to read it because it just seemed a really interetsing idea . Emma and Josh have been best friends ever since they were young . In 1996 hardly anyone owns a computer its a rare thing and when Emma's dad buys her a computer out of guilt for having a new family , Josh gives her an AOL (America online )cd that his family didn't want . When inserting the disk into her computer Emma discovers a little more then she bargained for Facebook.

Fifteen years in the future . Facebook has not even been invented yet .  So you could guess it came as a bit of a shock . Ecspecially when it shows you realationship status fifteen years in the future . Josh is married to the most popular girl in school . Emma is in an unhappy marriage . They both try desperately to  change their future or hold on to it . Then again has their future turned out the way they wanted it to be?

Ok , I'll start by saying that it is a good book . Not in my top 5 . Or my top 10 .Its very teeny . I doubt any thirty year old adult would enjoy this . Its fun and romantic . I guess its kind of a love story . It shines upon friendship and that basically nothing is going to happen the way you've planned it to happen , so you may aswell give up and live in the moment .Life is random and unpredictable.  Chill and go with the flow . The book also shows that its ok to let your guard down let other people in because thats how you fall in love . How you feel heartbreak .Thats how you live life .
All in all I would give it *** ( 3 stars )
It lacked something . I'm not quite sure what but for me it wasn't really STAND OUT !
Though it did point out the butterfly effect in more detail . That basically the small things we do today could have massive implications in our future .

Well its half term and I thought I'd do a post as I haven't done one in a while .
As it goes I haven't got anything of major interest to say , so I have no idea where this blog post is going to go . Bare with me .
Maybe I should enlighten you on a challenge I have set myself . Well actually " challenge " might not be the right word more a wish , hope .
As you may have worked out from earlier posts I am a big reader . I love reading and feel the most content when holding a book in my hands and as I stated in my new year resoloutions . I want to read as much as I can ( and finish the Harry Potter series for a 3rd time  , I'm currently on book 5 ) and so behold my list of books me and my friend ( though her list differs ) have set ourselves to read this year .

1 . Finish Hp series ( this includes finishing order of phoenix , half blood prince and deathly hallows )
2. Twilight series, I will put my predjudice , I want to know what all this horrific fan girrling fuss is about .
3. Shiver series by Maggie Stiefvater , as they sound very interesting and have been recommended to me
4. Out of sight out of time , the next book in the Gallagher Girls series ( I love these books )
5. Rapture last book in the Fallen series ( I'm in love with these books )
5. Underworld second book in the Abandon series .
Along with some other books , I'm going to try my best to finish reading this list . I'm 100% sure I'll do it but as I am sure you are wounderful people you can wish me luck anyway .

A necklace that was made for me by someone extremely talented @ahoythereelis <- I f you have twitter then you know what you have to do .
The symbol is of the Deathly Hallows .From the Harry Potter series .
The Triangle repesents the cloak of invisibility , the circle the ressurection stone , the line the elder wand ,
In total they make the master of death .
Besides that it is a pretty cool symbol .
The top picture is the back of the symbol with the inscribed words (Though can not be seen clearly in the picture)  " All was well " The last words written in the \Harry Potter series .
I thought I would share this with you blog people becaiuse I am a Potter Head .
I am extremely grateful for this .
I wanted an exscuse to write about Harry Potter and Jo Rowlings genuis .
I want to thank @ahoythereelis
And I wanted to show my new necklace off that I will wear as promised to @ahoythereelis with pride .
