Demon Girl by Penelope Fletcher

This was a really good book. I highly recommend reading it. When the next one comes out I'll probably buy it if the author lists it reasonably. She could use an editor and if she has one she needs a better one. But the story line is very good. The ended was a bit brisk. This story line was unique and fast passed. I read through the 470 pgs quickly and was happy to hear it carries on later.

Thor the movie

I enjoyed this movie. The 3D was a waste of time. We only ended up watching 3d cause we didn't know that was what we're in for when we left for the theater. This movie was good. You meet S.H.I.E.L.D. which is an agency for the marvel universe. There are a few movies this summer that you may see them a few times before they play a bigger part in another movie. I would say seeing this movie, specially if you can get to an early showing, would be worth wild.

Born to Bite by Lynsay Sands

This was another good one in the Argeneau novels. It had interesting twists and turns. I wasn't completely surprised at the end but didn't feel like well duh either. I look forward to reading the next one on the shelf. When this series first came out it was very funny. Now it's lost a bit of that funny edge. I worry that the author might lose the edge on this series. So far even though it isn't as funny it's very good and each story is different. When they stop being different they'll stop being interesting.

Cirque Du Freak

Ok so this was not a good movie but I loved it. It reminded me of My Best Friend is a Vampire . Basically, this kid is turned into a vampire to save his friend from a spider bite. He's immediately in the middle of a huge war between vampires who don't kill and vampires that do. He's on the don't kill side.

Kitty Goes to War by Carrie Vaughn

I love this series. I look forward to reading more each time I put down the last one. Kitty is an unlikely hero who manages to save the day from pure determination and persistence. With every new person she meets her journey expands.

God's War by Hurley

This book was full of interesting concepts but over all not worth the time it took to read. The world was just foreign enough that I would have liked a description instead of being spoon feed pieces. The people have few good qualities. In the end I don't think I'd have been upset if rocks had fallen and everyone had died.

The Expendables

This movie wasn't great but it was fun. Thing blow up and lots of bad people die. I'm very glad that I didn't see it in the theater though. It wouldn't have been worth the 20 dollars for my husband and I to see it. But on netflix it was great for the pure mindlessness of it. Now if they just could have limited the number of celebrities they had walk on that would have been better. It was a name dropping fest of faces.

Angelic by Kelley Armstrong

This subterranean press print is recently available on E copy making it much more available to the general public. Which is good because I find Kelley Armstrong small press prints fun and interesting. I also find that they do have a effect on the story line even if they don't have a direct effect. One of the important things to remember as an author is that once it's happened to your characters it's hard to make it unhappen in your brain. Everything we do effects us. Everything our characters do effects them.

Angelic is a story about Eve as an angel. It was hard to believe at first but it really turned out really interesting. I look forward to reading more of her small press.
