My Teaser:
Most af all, though it was fun. Even if I was still learning things, like to duck when Kristy yelled, "Incoming!" meaning she had to get something-a pack of napkins, some tongs, a tray- across a room so quickly that only throwing it would suffice.

The Truth About Forever- Sarah Dessen
Line 16-19 page 103

He is Just Not That Into You- The Movie

I know that this is my book blog, but I have to tell you how I felt about this movie, plus it is a book right?

I went with my sister to see this over the weekend. I went in thinking it may be a little cheesy, but I was wrong. It was actually a really good movie. The cast was great, the dialouge made sense, and it was just well done. There were a few huh points and a little predictable, but what chick movie isn't. Go see it. I found it worth my money, but take a girl with you as husbands/boyfriends might not see the appeal.

He is Just Not That Into You

Ouch. What harsh words for someone, but guess what it is probably true. I read this book because my sister and I were going to see the movie and I wanted to get the basis for it. The authors, a man and a women, were writers for Sex and The City. Greg had a harsh way of telling women who wrote letters into him asking for advice just why their man was acting that way: He Is Just Not That Into You.
I do think that a lot of women who have had a bad break up or maybe should be doing some breaking up should read this book.

Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets

I am moving right along in the series. I still can't believe it has taken me so long to read them. When I told my sister over the weekend that I was finally reading them she was so happy. She loved all of them and wants me to hurry so that I can go with them to watch the movie in July. In fact we saw the preview. I can't wait to get to that book now it looked so good.
It is the second year at Hogwart for Harry and the gang. There is a new teacher and a new mystery. Ron's sister is now a first year too. There is someone who is making students turn into stone. Harry is the who everyone thinks is doing it, but is he? Harry is on the case.
The suspense and the writing of this series is amazing. There is more suspense and character writing in this book then some of the newer James Patterson books I have read.

Sloppy Firsts

Continuing with my Young Adult obsession I picked this book up after hearing how much Jessica over at Reading is Sexy liked it. From the very first page I realized that I was going to identify with the main character.

Jessica's best friend moved away and Sloppy Firsts follows her through dealing with high school without her. She hates her friends that she does have at the school. He best guy friend actually likes her as more, but she doesn't like him. For some reason she keeps thinking about the school's bad boy. Jessica does anything possible to stay away from her parents as she thinks that her mom likes her sister better and her dad is always pressuring her.

I can't wait to see what happens in the next book between Jessica and Marcus.

Going back to being a child

Oh The Babysitters Club. Those were the books that I waited for. They were always what I would get for Christmas. I had all of them. I loved the super specials. These books really are what got me to love reading so much. I was feeling in the mood for a child book and so I requested a couple from the library. I am pretty sure that my librarian thought I was crazy, but oh well it is so fun to reminice.
This is a super special that has Stoneybrooke under a blizzard. All the girls are spread out throughout the city: Mallory and Maryanne are watching the Pike kids overnight, Dawn is stuck at the airport, Kristy is at home with her family and her maybe boyfriend Bart, Claudia is babysitting the Perkins girls, Jessi at her dance studio, and Stacey is stuck in the car with her mom.
The book follows all 7 of them as they ride out the blizzard the best they can. I love these books so simple and yet so fun to read. I will be blogging more about the other super specials that I got.

Kiss The Girls-James Patterson

This is number 2 in the Alex Cross mystery series. I really like these books. This one kept me on the edge of my seat and I was completely shocked at who the killer actually was.

Alex is following 2 serial killers of Women. One of the women that is missing is his neice. He is on a race against time. He works with one of the victims that escapes.

Alex is a family man who takes his job seriously. He is likable and I can't wait to read more and watch him grow even more as a person.

I have been out of my blogging here. I was sick one week and making it up and being busy at work and home. I have so many updates to do. I hope to do a few a day until I am caught up so that I don't have a million updates in one day.

The Princess Diaries-Meg Cabot

I really have enjoyed Meg Cabot's adult books so I decided to try this series. Plus it was recommended from Jessica at Reading Is Sexy. I am glad I did.
While Mia did annoy me a little I could tell she was 14. This book is told as Mia writes in her journal. She is now a "Princess" but doesn't want to be as she wants to be a normal teen. I love that she makes a new friend and I can't wait to see if she ends up with Michael or someone else. I was so mad at the popular boy for what he did.
It was so different from the movie, but I like both the same.

PS, I Love You

I actually read this book a week ago, but I have been sick.

I loved this book. I haven't seen the movie yet, but my mom loved that too. This book was so touching. As a Family Life Education graduate I loved seeing the stages of grief actually written out well. I felt myself wishing that it would be time to open his next letter. The characters in this book were all real to me from the main character to her family, and her friends. While friend's lives go on they sometimes forget how hard it is for you to go on. I loved her friendships with her 2 closest friends and I was glad that everything worked out in the end.
