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
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.
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.
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 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.
