Books 13 and 14 and a Movie update

Book 13 - On the Run by Iris Johanssen. Boring. Let's move on. Her work is going into the shitter. I won't buy her in hardback anymore.

Book 14 - Something Blue by Erica Giffin. Loved it. You sorta kinda have to read the book prior to this one, Something Borrowed. It chronicles how the lead character in Something Blue, Darcy, got to be in the predicament in which she finds herself. I highly recommend both books. The characters are so realistic and anyone who reads them will at the very least be reminded by someone they know and either like or hate. Go to Barnes and buy them both and spend the weekend on the deck reading. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Movie review - Derailed starring Jennifer Aniston and Clive Owen. Wow, what a movie. I really wanted to see this when it came out but for various reasons, the hubs and I never made it. This movie kept me interested from beginning to end. It was totally unpredictable with a few twists and turns that I swear you will NEVER see coming. I was thoroughly impressed. It helps that I just love Jen A. and want to smear butter on Clive and eat him like toast, but seriously, it's all about the story......

I had a nice lunch today with an attorney I used to work with at my old firm. She left the firm for a couple of reasons that are way too personal to her to go into on the inter-fucking-net, so let's just say she moved on to greener pastures. It was cool to see her again and to nosh on a fab cheeseburger at the Ugly Dog. I love me some Ugly. Tomorrow night I am having a girls' night with my girls from the firm while the hubs watches LSU put a smack down on UCLA. One might assume that I am a UCLA girl being that I hail from the land of milk and honey, but not so much. Truth be told, I think basketball is about the most boring sport out there, so the hubs shall enjoy his game without my commentary. I'm sure he's crushed. Devastated really...

Sunday I am having brunch with my girl, Karen, again. She is such fun. She refers to her three little girls as the devils. LOLOLOL. You have to sit and talk to her or at least listen to her to truly appreciate her wonderful sense of humor but fuck, the girl makes me laugh. :) That's always a good thing.

So I am off to bed and to start another book. I am doing pretty well on this 50 book challenge thing. I might actually be able to do it. Go me. :)

That is really cool about the books! I have a big stack by my bed, but I've been in a reading funk lately. I TOTALLY didn't see that huge twist coming in Derailed. It was done really well, I just didn't like the ending.

I'm really wondering where in the world you find all the time to read these books. You must be a speed reader!

I want to see Derailed. I'm guessing it's on DVD now. Must go rent it.

Thanks for the reivew, I've had my eye on Something Borrowed for quite some time but didn't know if it was any good. Guess now I'll go read it!
