The Most Awesomeness Movie of the Summer!!

Inception is fantastic!!!

Well I just came from seeing Inception and I have to say that I loved the movie. I can't believe that I had to wait until I had no one to go to the movies with to see it. This movie is a movie with everything, suspense, action, characters with depth and so much more.

Leonardo DiCaprio does a fantastic job of portraying his character Cobb. I found myself so engrossed in the movie that I didn't want the movie to end. The special effects are so intense you could hear the audience marvel at them during the movie.

When you go to see Inception, you need to have no other distractions. This movie is understandable as long as you pay attention. Inception is not a movie to go to with people that like to make comments during movies. Your full attention will be on the screen the whole time.

The music score for Inception is perfectly composed. I recommend this movie for mostly everyone over the age of 14. Go see INCEPTION!!!

In Harm's Way by Ridley Pearson ~ Review

Well I won this book through LibraryThing's Early Reviewers Program. Most of the ARCs I have read and reviewed on this blog have been won through that program. I am always thrilled when I win a book from the ER program. I know some people that seem to do this for a living. They either receive books from actual publishers or authors. There reviews are also much better written then mine, even though sometimes I just skim the review because the review is too long for my liking. Now onto my review.

This is the first book that I have ever read by Ridley Pearson and I have to say I find his work pleasantly enticing. I love reading mysteries and was thrilled to win this book from the Early Reviewers program. I started reading the book as soon as it arrived in my mailbox.

In Harm's Way is the 4th book in the Walt Fleming Novels. I am honored to say that I was able to enjoy the book even though I was not familiar with the characters in the novel prior to reading this book.

Walt Fleming is sheriff in a small town in Idaho who is raising two twin eleven year old girls. I found Walt Fleming to be a complex character while still being interesting and entertaining. He has a small staff of deputies and a photographer whom is the love interest of Walt. I found some of the characters of little interest and didn't create a bond towards them while reading In Harm's Way.

In Harm's Way is a well crafted story of intrigue and suspense. As I read the book I found myself getting more and more drawn into the story and thinking I knew who did it before I finally reached the end. It is enjoyable when reading a book and not being able to figure out who committed the crime before the end. I was getting to the point where I started to actually talk back to the characters while reading the book. When that happens you know I am drawn into the story.

I will be looking at my library to see if they have any of his books and if not maybe make a request to see if they will in the future. I enjoyed the book and found the writing fun and at times a little tiresome. I felt that Walt would say the same things over and over again and that became annoying at times. Otherwise I enjoyed the story and to me that is the most important thing in a book. You should enjoy the story and not nit pick about writing style unless it really ruins the whole book for you, in my opinion.

I give In Harm's Way 4 1/2 stars out of 5.

Salt ~ Who is she really?

So I went and saw Salt this afternoon with my friend Amy. She actually asked me what I would say on my blog about the movie. I replied that I was going to tell everyone how I was dragged to the movies again. No one has to drag me to the movies at all. I love to watch movies and I always give each one a chance. I did want to see Salt since I had seen it in the previews this year.

I am not one that has followed Angelina Jolie's acting career. I don't know exactly what she is best known for besides having stolen the heart of Brad Pitt from Jennifer Aniston. Angelina is a wonderful actress in the movies that I have seen her in.

Salt is a movie about a CIA agent (Angelina Jolie), who is told by a Russian informant that she is a Russian spy and will assassinate the Russian President. That is what draws you into this movie. You will wonder if Salt is a spy or is she really being set up by someone during the whole movie.

This film is action packed and the twists and turns in Salt will keep you guessing on the ending of this movie. Angelina Jolie does a fantastic job with the stunts she has in this movie. The way she climbs the walls before she kicks an opponent or when she is running for her life and jumping from semi truck to tanker etc.

As the movie progressed I started to make conclusions about how the movie would end. I was a little surprised by the ending of the movie. I did realize that Salt was not who she really seemed in the movie. Can a person really be one thing and then change after being programmed as a child? That is one thing you will have to discover by going to see Salt.

The movie I didn't enjoy...

Well this may be a humdinger to those that know me. I am a huge Harry Potter fan. I have to say that what really got me into Harry Potter was the fact that they were making a movie of the first book, The Sorcerer's Stone. Once I heard about the movie I had to read the book and all I have to say is Thank God for WB doing the movies otherwise I don't think I would have picked the books up.

I am sure you have guessed that the movie I didn't enjoy was an HP movie. Yes that is correct. There is an HP movie that I didn't like when I saw it for the first time in the movie theater. Let me give you some background on my HP movie experiences. When the first movies came out I would see them usually once. At about the 3rd movie I decided to see the movies at midnight and then take the next day off and see it either 3 or 4 times that day. Well I loved each one the first time except for one.

I will say that I did learn after the first couple of movies not to expect everything that was in the books to be in the movie. That is fine I understand that not everything converts well to film. Each of the HP movies improved every time. After I saw the movie I couldn't wait for the next one to come out. I felt that way after Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix, etc... Now for the exception to that previous statement is the last movie that was released last year at this time.

Yes I did not enjoy Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. I was anticipating this movie since I had finished reading the book with the same title and the last book in the series. I was expecting so much from this movie. This was the book that leads up to the war between good and evil. You learn so much about all the characters, Voldemort, Snape, Draco etc... Some of that was there.

I left the theater after seeing the movie at midnight with a bad taste in my mouth. I thought, I am going to see this tomorrow, ugh. I didn't feel a cliff hanger at the end. I felt cheated. I felt blah. I felt like I didn't want to see the last movie when it came out. I was ready to say it was good while it lasted.

Now you maybe thinking, why, so what, you know the books are almost always better then the movies. Yes that maybe true but I still didn't like the movie. I should have know when the movie got a PG rating instead of PG-13 like the 2 previous movies had been rated. Knowing how GoF and OoP books were I figured the HBP movie should also have had a PG-13 possibly R rating. Well it didn't, they made a movie that was just too cute for what should have happened.

I know that in the book there is budding romances and all the characters are starting to realize their attraction to the opposite sex. That is fine but to make that the most important aspect of this movie was just ludicrous. That was nice brevity for the book and the movie but not the whole meaning of the Half Blood Prince. Each book and movie was always about the titles. You want to know who is the Half Blood Prince, the Prisoner of Azkaban etc. I didn't feel that in this movie. I felt it to babyfied (if that is even a word), too much of the sweetness instead of the fights.

My biggest disappointment was the way you find out who the Half Blood Prince is. I just felt oh that was it. I felt Bellatrix was too goofy instead of scary. My son was watching the movie recently and he asked me who the HBP was. He just wanted to know because he thought the person was supposed to be an actual prince. The thing that I don't feel came across well in the movie was that the person who is the HBP is not because they are nobility but it is their mother's last name and that he/she is a Half Blood. I am sure those who are reading this post know who the HBP is I just don't feel comfortable stating it. I don't know why, I guess I just don't want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't seen the movie.

Now I do have to say that after watching the movie over and over and over for the past couple of weeks, I enjoy the movie and I am looking forward to the last two due out in Nov. 2010 and July 2011. I am looking forward to them because of the previews that I have seen. I hope they live up to what they should be which is R rated movies. Please don't down play the war in these movies. They are supposed to be dark!!

Now I think I have said enough about this movie. I hope to see you all around my blog soon!!

My ramblings..

This post isn't going to pertain to books or movies. This is just a post of some of my meandering thoughts. So forgive me for my babble and thanks for taking the time to read my babble.

I hope everyone is enjoying this time of year, since it is summer in my part of the country. I know I am quite enjoying this summer even though I have had some ups and downs over the past year. Some of the upsides to this year have been my daughter graduating high school and completing her first year at college. I am thrilled that she is enjoying her college life and education. I sometimes wished I was able to attend a 4 year college and have the experiences she is having, then when I think of that I think I may never have had her or my son. The other great thing is that my son graduated high school this year. I am thrilled that he graduated because he gave us/me a hard time in high school. He always loved school and then high school he just changed. He didn't want to go, he seemed depressed. I never really found out what happened or why he hated school all of a sudden. He finished his schooling by doing online education. I think it was good for him to some extent then other times I think he should have been in the actual classroom. What's done is done, nothing to change now. I just hope he does decide to continue his education because he is a bright person and I know he will be successful at what ever he decides to do.

Another upside to this past year is that I have lost 40 pounds. Yes that is correct. I was astonished when I found out my actual total. Considering I never had a weight problem before in my life to waking up and realizing how unhappy I was with myself and being able to turn things around and start loosing weight. Now I just need to continue with this goal of weight loss so that I can knock some guys socks off again.

Now on to some downsides of this year. I think the biggest downside was last July (2009) a few days after my daughter's graduation party. My husband of 20 years decides to leave me. The way he did it was the cowards way. He did it over the phone. I was with the kids. My daughter and I had just come back from having lunch when I called to see where he was and about what time he would be home. He told me he wasn't coming home. I was shocked to say the very least. My daughter and son heard and saw me crying and I had to tell them.

The thing that hurt me the most was the fact that after I had told my children what he had said, my son left the room and I learned later that he had messaged his dad and asked him if it was his fault. That broke my heart for my child to feel that way. Till this day when I think about it I cry. That message made my husband decide to come home just to put our son at ease and to let them know that it wasn't them but me. My daughter's reaction was tearful and anger at the same time. She wanted answers and yet she was mad at her dad for doing this.

Well to make this a little shorter I will let you know that he said he didn't love me anymore, that I was ugly and fat. He also informed me that he hasn't loved me for awhile. To this day I still don't know if any of that was true or just him trying to make himself feel that what was coming next was okay and that he really wasn't an ass. I found out that there was another woman, younger at that. I really am not sure how old she is, but I believe she is in her late 20's, maybe.

That hurt the most because he left me because some younger, bitch found him attractive. I personally don't think she found him attractive I think she sees him and thinks, unhappy man, with a good job, grown kids so he has to have money. Sorry to inform her but his ass is broke. I was hurt the first time and I still am to this day.

He realized that he still loved me and decided to come back. And let's say that it worked for awhile but then he did something even worse this time around. He took money out of our joint account and gave it to her. Now I usually don't get upset but it was a lot of money and when I asked for money we never had any. That pissed me off even more then him cheating on me. Now all I worry about is if he decides to divorce me how am I going to live on my own and survive. It is very scary and not something I want to experience at this time in my life.

I am at the time in my life when I should be able to enjoy the freedom I now have with the kids being older and preparing them for the real world, but instead I have to worry about them going to college and getting jobs and whether I will have to move in with my dad or someone else just to survive.

Well this post has turned into a very long one and if you do decide to read it I want to say thanks for taking the time and I hope you enjoyed my ramblings. My next one is going to be about a movie that I was not impressed with when I saw it in the movie theater. Happy day all!!

The Sorcerer's Apprentice

I forgot to post about seeing this movie this past weekend. I am not one that is great with words when trying to write. So I just type what I feel or think about things. Okay now onto my thoughts of this movie.

My friend Amy wanted to go to the movies and she wanted to see this movie. Personally I want to see Inception with Leonardo DiCaprio. Since I am a very nice friend and will pretty much enjoy just about any movie (only one exception to that), I decided to go. I wasn't thrilled with seeing The Sorcerer's Apprentice and I think that is because I have watched all the Harry Potter movies, and I am a huge fan of them, I felt that this movie was just trying to cash in on that idea. I still feel that way but will say that I enjoyed the movie.

I have a retention problem when it comes to recalling movies or even books after I have viewed them or read them, so please forgive me if I mention anything that is not absolutely correct about this movie. First off I have to say that I do enjoy Nicholas Cage as an actor and have seen many of his performances. Mr. Cage did a superb job in his role as Balthazar. I am not going to try and explain all the background information for this movie, mainly because I don't remember everything that was mentioned in the film and I don't think you need to be informed of this before seeing the movie.

The main idea of The Sorcerer's Apprentice is that there is a boy who will be born and will be able to defeat the evil Morgana, who has destroyed Merlin. Morgana wants to take over the world and kill everyone. Morgana is portrayed by Alice Krige. The boy who is supposed to be able to destroy Morgana is named Dave who is played by Jay Baruchel.

I was impressed with the special effects in this movie and found myself drawn into the plot of the movie. I was also impressed with Jay Baruchel, since I don't remember seeing him in too many other movies. His character is an awkward boy and young man and he does fantastic in making those characteristics come out on the screen.

If you need a nice family night out or even just a night out for a relaxing evening I would suggest seeing The Sorcerer's Apprentice. I am quite pleased that I saw this movie and now my goal is to try and talk my friend Amy into going to see Inception.

Knight & Day

My friend and I had decided we need a night out to the movies and she chose to see Knight and Day with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. This wasn't one of my most wanting to see movies but I will go to almost any movie. We chose to see the movie on a Friday afternoon. I didn't anticipate any problems with the movie being sold out.

The movie was entertaining yet I felt it was predictable in some areas. Tom and Cameron were great together in this movie. Tom does a fantastic job of playing a character that you are trying to figure out if he is really insane and paranoid or just doing his job and trying to prove his innocence.

I found myself laughing at the interaction between Cameron and Tom in the fight scenes and just in general. Seeing Tom fight in this movie compared to the Mission Impossible movies was quite refreshing. This is a nice comedy movie to pass a rainy summer day or even a very humid summer day.

Genoa Bay by Bette Nordberg ~ Review

Another book from the ER program at Library Thing.

When I won this book I was delighted and excited about reading the book. I liked and disliked the book. The writing was great and interesting. The story is about a widow, Brandy Beauchamp, who inherits a bed and breakfast in Canada from a woman who took her in as a teenager after she had runaway from home.

The characters you meet in the book are Brandy, her daughter Gabby (just adorable), Eve (Brandy's friend from Florida), Cliff, and Herbert Karras. Brandy's 'adoptive' mother, Maggie, dies and leaves Brandy the old Bed and Breakfast. Brandy receives this inheritance at a time when she is trying to figure where she really belongs since her husbands death. Gabby is a lovable little girl of 7. Gabby is what keeps Brandy going and also questioning everything she does. Brandy decides to try and resurrect the Bed and Breakfast again after much debating in her head. She is afraid of the money she doesn't have to fix the place up. She worries about her daughter not liking the place at first. Brandy also doesn't enjoy feeling needy which makes her stubborn when offered help from the Marina Manager, Cliff.

I found most of the story predictable and boring. The reason the story was boring is when Brandy would always mention god and over analyze everything. I usually don't mind God being mentioned in a story in subtle terms. With Genoa Bay at times I felt that I was being preached to about God, which was a turn off. I then decided to just read the book without thinking about the God references, which made the story more enjoyable.

Towards the end of the book, at about Chapter 20 the story became interesting and I had difficulty putting the book down. I found myself wanting Brandy to win against all the trouble and misfortune that came her way. I felt that Brandy was a fighter but also very vulnerable and unsure of herself. I can not say that this book is a book that I will highly recommend to people. I will say to give it a try and form your own opinions about Genoa Bay.

The Broken Blue Line by Connie Dial ~ Review

This is another book I won through Library Things Early Reviewers program. I have to say that I have been quite pleased with the books I have recently won through the ER Program.

The Broken Blue Line is a book that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. I love mysteries with suspense, and a little bit of romance thrown in for some smiles and laughs. I have to say that The Broken Blue line did not disappoint me. I found the characters very endearing and able to appreciate them. I did find myself confused when I first started reading the book. I was getting the characters confused.

The Broken Blue Line is about Internal Affairs and crooked cops. Those styles of books are always very interesting reads. When I read books like this I always visualize it in real life and not just being fiction. Most of these books I feel are based on some actual facts.

Turner is a memeber of IA and soon becomes the focus of an investigation. I found it interesting how the members of his squad were divided about him. Turner's partner and friend, Reggie and Miller are the ones who want to help Turner prove his innocence and at the same time capture the real cop that is their prime suspect.

Reggie is the one that doesn't mind breaking the rules and circumvention authority to get to the truth. Miller is the wise craking one that doesn't like authority. Turner, Reggie and Miller work well together and make the best IA team even though the one boss hates them.

I hope to read more books by Connie Dial.

Sidney Sheldon's After the Darkness by Tilly Bagshawe ~ Review

I won this book through Library Things Early Reviewers program. Sidney Sheldon's After the Darkness is a wonderfully written story of suspense, intrigue, mystery and betrayal. The principle character in After the Darkness is Grace Brookstein. Her character goes through so many changes and growth from the start of the story. Grace is the wife of Lenny Brookstein, who died while out on his boat and the death is ruled a suicide. Lenny is the financial wizard behind an investment company called Quorum.

After the Darkness starts out with Grace on trial for theft of billions of dollars through Quorum. She is innocent and feels that she will be cleared of all charges. Her trusting nature is what causes her many problems and heartbreak through the story. Those who she thought were her family and friends turn on her and don't want to help her during her trial and even after her day in court. She is surprised by her family's reaction. This is when Grace starts to go through a change. She is a lady that is used to things always being easy for her. Grace goes from a trusting, innocent child like woman to a woman of strength and realizes her true worth and that she can stand on her own two feet without the help of a man. I found myself eagerly hoping for her to survive every obstacle and hardship she encountered during the story.

Once you start reading After the Darkness you will not be able to stop. After the Darkness is a page turning novel of intrigue and suspense. I loved how the story was summarized at the end of the book. The ending for Grace is one of pure surprise. You may like it or you may feel jilted.

The Lovely Bones ~ Review

The Lovely Bones is the fictional story of a girl who is brutally murdered and raped. The story starts with her stating she is dead. She then goes on to tell you how it happened. The girl is named Susie and is only 14 when she is murdered. You will not be able to put the book down when you are reading it.

Susie explains how her rape and murdered happened. You know who the culprit is from the very beginning of the story. Susie is the narrator through the whole book. You see things through her eyes. Seeing how her family is dealing with her first missing and then learning she is most likely dead when her elbow is found by a neighbors dog. Her family consists of her sister, Lindsey who is a year younger, her brother Buckley who is only 4 at the time, her mother and father. Her Grandmom comes to help the family cope with the problems that arise during the years after Susie's murder.

Susie's father takes her death hard because they are very close. Her mother deals with Susie's death differently and hurts the whole family in the long run. Lindsey senses that when everyone looks at her they see her sister and closes herself from certain people and also changes. Susie longs to be back with her family and wishes she was on earth with them.

The story is one that pulls at your heart strings. As I read the book it made me think about the people I have lost in my life and how I have always felt that they are with me even when I don't realize it. Susie's father concentrates on finding the person who has done this to his little girl. It starts to consume him and he is always contacting the police to give them advice and to tell them he knows who did it even when he has no evidence.

This is a nice, quick read and one that I highly recommend.

Living Dead in Dallas ~ Review

The second book in the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris is a very interesting read. The story starts with Sookie discovering a dead body in the police chiefs car that was left in Merlot's parking lot since he was too drunk to drive home last night. The body turns out to be the cook from Merlot's. There are new characters introduced as Sookie and Bill travel to Dallas to help out other vampires who are looking for a vampire that has been missing.

While in Dallas, Sookie meets another person who is a telepath, finds others who transform into other animals just like same. I found the story one that I couldn't put down. I enjoyed seeing Sookie learn more about her powers and to also try communicating with the other telepath when she needed help.

I have been on a kick of reading the Sookie Stackhouse books this year. I would like to read all of the books in this series that have been released but then I don't want to have to wait too long for the next one to be released. I did all that waiting with the Harry Potter books.

I also love the True Blood Series that is based on these books. Even though True Blood doesn't follow the books perfectly I still enjoy both the books and the series as two different entities.

5 stars

The Picture of Dorian Gray ~ Review

Wow is all I have to say about The Picture of Dorian Gray. I didn't think I would like this book and I was pleasantly surprised with this book. This is the first book I have ever read by Oscar Wilde.

The writing in the book was wonderful. The characters words just flow like music as you read the book. I found myself not wanting to put the book down as I was reading. Dorian, Lord Henry and the Artist Harry interact so well with each other. There is a different relationship between all 3 of them and to see the relationships change through the book was enthralling.

The ending of the book was quite a surprise to me. When I read it I laughed at how well written the story was and the fact that I never realized the ending until the very last second.

I can't wait to read more books written by Oscar Wilde!! I have to say that I am now more curious to read more of the classics then I was before I had picked up The Picture of Dorian Gray

5 stars

American Wife ~ Review

American Wife is a book I don't feel I would have read on my own. This book was chosen for my Library Book Club. I was quite pleased with the story. American Wife chronicles the life of a girl, Alice Lindgren, whom has become the First Lady. American Wife is written in 4 parts, each part represents where she was living at that time. The story takes place from the 1950's to about 2007.

The first part is her young childhood through about her college years. She goes through a lot during her young life. She discovers her grandmother is a lesbian, she has an abortion and is involved in an accident that kills the boy she has feelings for at this time. The story starts with Alice and her grandmother running into a child from her class and her grandmother thinks the child is a girl when actually the child is a boy. The boy's name is Andrew Imhof. When Alice travels to Chicago with her grandmother is when I really felt the story had drawn me in. I wanted to know what was going to happen next from that moment on.

The next parts are defining moments in Alice's life. She is a librarian at an elementary school and loves to read. It was wonderful to see so many books mentioned throughout this novel. You are introduced to the men that she dates and ultimately her husband. I loved how their romance blossomed in a very short time and they knew how much they loved each other.

My Challenges!!

Those that know about LibraryThing will understand what I mean by my challenges. Here is some information about LibraryThing (LT). Library Thing is a website that I joined to catalog all my books, either that I own, or borrow. Plus it helps me with keeping track of what I have read and so that I can also remember what certain books are about. On LT there are challenges to do if you are interested. This year I have decided to do a bunch of challenges. They are:

50 Book Challenge
1010 Challenge
Alphabet Challenge
Books off the Shelf Challenge

Here is some information on the Challenges...

50 Book Challenge

My goal is to read 50 books this year. The books can be from any genre, year, writing style etc. I have also included Comic Books. I tried this last year and came up short, so I decided to try for 50 again this year. If I am able to make this challenge I may decide to try for 75 books next year. Here is a link to my 50 Book Challenge: http://www.librarything.com/topic/81167

1010 Challenge

This Challenge is different for everyone. Over the past few years the challenges have been, 999 Challenge or 888 Challenge etc.. That means that your goal is to read 9 books in 9 categories in 2009. You change the amount for each new year, if you want too. Now this 1010 Challenge is being done differently by everyone. Some are doing it as a Step Challenge; which means, 10 Categories and reading 1 book in category 1, 2 books in category 2 etc. Some are doing it with trying to read 5 books in 10 different categories. My goal is to at least read 1 book in 10 Categories. My ultimate goal is to read 5 or more books in each category. Here is a link to my 1010 Challenge: http://www.librarything.com/topic/74938

Alphabet Challenge

Now for my Alphabet Challenge there is no time limit, which means I can finish it in a few years. I started this Challenge in Oct. 2009. This Challenge can be done in different ways.
1. You can read a total of 52 books 26 by Author's Last Name & 26 by the Title of the book.
2. You can read just 26 by either of the choices above.
3. You can also place books in both sections if you want.
You have the freedom to do this Challenge anyway you want to. Here is a link to my Alphabet Challenge: http://www.librarything.com/topic/74894

Books off the Shelf Challenge

This is a challenge to read as many books that you want to this year that have been on your book shelves for too long. My goal is to read 30 books. This one can be difficult because I never know what I want to read at any given time. I will be happy if I read 30 b00kd from my shelves this year. Then maybe I can either donate them, give them away on other sites, or share them with my friends. Here is a link to my Books off the Shelf Challenge: http://www.librarything.com/topic/81591

So those are my Challenges for this year. Most of my reviews are posted in all the threads. I find it interesting as to how LT has made me more aware of the books I read and to also try new authors, genres etc. I hope you have enjoyed this post about my Challenges and maybe you will decide to check out LT for yourself!! Happy Reading All!!!~
