Twin Tales

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

Annike: Hey guys! I’m so sorry that we have been so bad at posting here lately. Things have been crazy at school and they still are so hopefully after this week – when its school holidays – we will finally be back to regular posting. For now, I am going to review a book that I read a little while ago and really loved. It’s not young adult exactly but definitely recommended to people of all ages! (more…)

What Does My Birth Order Say About Me? (Link)

Technically I’m the baby of the family but only by 5 minutes to Zoe so let’s keep that in mind, not sure if all of this will apply!

The Baby

Stereotype: Free spirit, risk taker, charming.
Why it’s true: Parents are less cautious. (Hey, the older ones ate the dog’s food and lived!) And they also probably have more resources than they did when starting out. “Parents are more lenient, so youngest kids tend to be less rules-oriented, and yet they still get lots of attention,” says Salmon.
When it’s not: “Some babies resent not being taken seriously,” says Linda Campbell, a professor of counselling and human development at the University of Georgia, in Athens. “They might become very responsible, like the oldest, or social, like the middle.”

Thanks for reading guys! Hope you guys enjoyed some of this and got to know me a bit better. Let me know what you guys thought! 🙂
