I read some books this weekend! And watched some movies!
What can I say…I didn’t really feel all that great so I made it a lazy weekend.
First the books
I loved the beginning. The character and setting descriptions were exceptional. She did lose me when she went into back story. It made me feel as if she veered off-course, (Kind of like the way I feel when I listen to the guitar riff of Alice Cooper’s Poison song. I always feel like the guitarist slipped or stumbled during that part, but it is my favorite Alice Cooper song) but she pulled it back together with a surprise ending. Overall I’d give it a 4 star.
This was another short book. The story was great, but I think she could have put a little more into it. Developed the story line a little bit more and added more character and scene descriptions. But overall, I’d give it a 4 star.
Whether you are new to writing or have been writing for years, I highly recommend “The Emotion Thesaurus”
They take different emotions from A-Z showing you the
And more, to help you get your character’s thoughts and emotions across in very effective ways, helping you to create a more enjoyable read for your readers. This is one book to keep handy and read often!
Okay now for the movies!
The Medallion and Who Am I? starring Jackie Chan
I enjoyed both movies, but then I like Jackie Chan. He’s a funny and energetic guy. And now I am kicking myself for not going to last year’s comic con in San Diego! Yep, he was there!
Both movies had a lot of action, which is a given with Jackie Chan movies, but I also felt both movies were a little far-fetched. 🙂
Would I watch them again? Yes, if they were on, but personally, I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy or rent them.
Here Comes The Boom! starring Kevin James
I wasn’t really into a movie watching mood, but my son put it on anyway. It was good. I have never really been a fan of “King of Queens” But I like Kevin James. He is in my top ten faves! He’s a great actor, funny, and cute 🙂 I won’t tell you what the story is about, because I am terrible at that, but it had the good guy (Kevin James) trying to do the good things for everyone, with a classic HEA.
Watch it, you won’t be disappointed!
Well that was my weekend, mostly reading and watching movies, but I did manage to get in a little, editing and revising of my WIP, and A lot of sleep! Tuesday night I will have a new Wednesday’s Wonder interview with, Katherine Hetzel, from the short story group, so make sure to drop by and see what freaks her out!
Till then, Have a Great Day!
Oops! Almost forgot to share my horoscope for today! Yep, it’s a good one!

At the moment, Aquarius, the planets are aligned in a way that encourages communication and the written word. Therefore, you may feel like taking the plunge and writing that book you’ve been thinking about for a long time. It will probably be a great success. You’re very gifted when it comes to this kind of creative activity. Go for it and stop making excuses!
