Takers


Greed, it has a funny way of consuming people and evetually, it destroys them.

Words cannot describe how much I love this movie and it isn't because the men were in suits either, but it did help. This had to be the best action movie I have seen and enjoyed in such a long time. It had romance, action, lots of action, decite, jealousy, guns, and a shot of Paul Walker's butt. I'm just saying.

The movie is a nail bitter, I loved it all the way through.

Five Black Sheep! It was amazing!

Easy A




Easy A

Every one, knows how exhausting High School can be. The rumors alone are enough to have anyone banging their head against the lockers. Easy A's plot is based off of rumors.

Olive, Emma Stone, is the invisible girl. The girl that no one knows about. She is ordinary. Until one rumor that she did in fact bring upon herself sets the rumor mill on fire and nearly brings her whole life, high school, and out of high school, crashing down un top of her head.

The plot was really good, the characters were for the most part original. The heroine is funny, witty, smart. The music is good too. I think that was my favorite part, no the wittiness was my favorite part but the music was a close second. (I'm a music freak.)
Oh, Penn Badgley goes shirt less for a little while, I don't know how some of you feel about that but it was kind of a plus for me. =)

Easy A, turns out to be that movie that is perfect for a night out with your best friend, possibly boyfriend. Easily the most hilarious movie I have seen this fall. It was great!

Last Dragon Standing





















Last Dragon Standing- GA Aiken
Dragon Kin Series - Book 4
September 2010
Paranormal Romance

*Note*
If you have not read the first three Dragon Kin books, it is recommended before
reading Last Dragon Standing. There will be a lot of missed humor, not to
mention sizzling romance if you don't.

"I know what they see when they look at me. The charming, soft-spoken dragoness
bred from the most powerful of royal bloodlines. A disguise stronger than any
battle shield that allows me to keep all suitors at tail's length. A technique
that's worked until him. Until Ragnar the Cunning, handsome barbarian warlord
and warrior mage from the desolate Northlands. Unlike those who've come before
him, he does not simply submit to my astounding charm and devastating smile.
Instead, he dismisses me as vapid, useless and, to my great annoyance, rather
stupid!

Yet I'll allow no male to dismiss me. Soon he'll learn my worth, my many skills,
and the strength of my will. For this one challenges me enough to make me want
to ruthlessly taunt him, tease him and, finally, when the trap is set, bring him
to his knees."

I have to say out of all the Dragon Kin series, this one was my least favorite.
It isn't just because I wasn't looking forward to reading Keita's story, I
enjoyed her point of view surprisingly. It was just so. . .underdeveloped. in
areas.

Keita is a Dragoness who likes to have a good time and doesn't apologize for it.
She is like her brother Gwenvael, he was just able to get by with it easier
because he is Gwenvael, sweet hilarious Gwenvael. She is Keita who came off as
an empty headed trollop, it is easy not to like her in the beginning.
This book was also longer than the others and the plot was a lot slower to come
to light in my opinion. There also wasn't as much attention to the relationships
between the characters as with the pervious stories. Still Aikens ability to
mix; humor, romance, action and sex is brilliant.

The romance was pretty good but if you are a true Aiken fan you will know it
isn't at its best. Keita and Ragner's relationship was so underdeveloped that it
is hard to enjoy it when they do come together. Their relationship is told for
the point of view of others more so than their own. In the end it feels like
something is missing. Possibly the author plans to continue their romance.
The action in this story is also slow and long coming, not that it isn't great
when it finally gets there. The humor is there to make up for it, all the way
through there is nothing to do but wonder and laugh. The characters are
hilarious. Especially once they reach the southlands and Dark Plains. The family
hasn't changed a bit, well a little but it is all in a wonderfully delicious
way. They will keep you laughing.

If you're reading this sequel for Izzy and Eibhear then I am here to tell you
that you will not be disappointed. In fact you will be very sad the book has
ended once you read what has happened with those two. They are so hilarious, and
very clueless.

Little things aside the book is a good addition to the Aiken Dragon Kin series.
I can't wait, and I mean it. To get my hands on the fifth installment.

Mistwood






















Mistwood- Leah Cypess
Hardcover, 304 pages
Published April 27th 2010 by
Greenwillow Books/HarperCollins


"The Shifter is a immortal creature bound by an ancient spell to prtect the kings of Samorna. When the realm is peaceful, she retreats to the Mistwood. But when she is needed she always comes."

Isabel remembers nothing; nothing of who she is or what she is. Her past is a mystery before the prince rode into her forest to take her back to the castle. Isabel's powers are a mystery to everyone and even to herself.
Prince Rokan hears of the legend of Mistwood and rides out seeking the Shifter, Isabel. He needs her speed, her cunning, her ability to shift to animal forms, to the wind. To become the mist. He needs her loyalty most of all. Without it Isabel might just become his biggest threat.
Isabel knows the prince is hiding something from her, but she can't help wanting to protect him from the dangers and intrigues of the court until a deadly truth shatters the fragile bond between them. Isabel faces a choices that threatens to tear between her loyalty, her hearts and everything she thought she knew.

The story is great, absolutely wonderful. As subtle and not so subtle clues begin to appear. Readers will easily fall in love with Isabel and Rokan and have their hearts torn in the process.
Reading about Isabel’s struggles and wanting, reading about her thoughts and actions was a joy not found in many YA novels now a days. The whole story takes the reader on a emotional rollercoaster leaving them breathless at the end.


Honestly, I didn't know what to think of this book. The cover told me I had to read it and that was what originally what sucked me in. A pale girl with reddish brown hair and inhuman green eyes swirled in mist beneath her is a castle. I love the cover.
The plot is brilliantly executed (to me). The moment I started reading I was sucked in by Cyress's words. Her detailing was something I really enjoyed. The way she described the forest in her opening paragraphs painted a really good picture.
A prince riding into the Forest, Mistwood. In search of the legend that lives in it.
He find it- her too. Her name is Isabel and she is told she is the Shifter bound to protect the Kings of Somara. Isabel believes this and on some conscious level knows it as true. It is for that reason that she allows herself to be bound to the Prince (Rokan) soon to be King. Her need to protect him sends her to his castle which is so full of deceit and lies and two faced people the stone should cave in on them all.
The story follows Isabel as she tries to remember how to be the Shifter; it also follows Rokan as he tries to become a king. Both of them are very believable. Isabel knows that Rokan is lying to her but she doesn’t know why. Isabel also knows his siblings are lying too. This has her questioning her reasons for being there and who Rokan really is and if she can help him. Or if she even wants to help him.
When both of them come face to face with the truth and what is I love the way they discover who and what they are.

Twenty

Another birthday has come and gone.
I am now officially 20, that is right the big two and zero. It really is a weird age, besides being two decades what else is there?
I can already smoke, play the lotto all that I could do at eighteen. I'm not old enough to walk into a casino without having my motives questioned. I can't go to the bar and order a shot, I have to wait until I'm twenty-one. Doesn't that suck?
I can't rent a car, that is when you hit 25. What is out there for a twenty year old to do that means something? Nothing, you have to wait one more year before I can do something I can't already. Isn't that stupid?
*sigh*
I guess I'm young enough to still receive presents so that is something. right?

Resolution

I don't want to say that nursing school is kicking my butt but it kind of is. I don't want to say that it has reduced me to tears, twice but it has. I'm not delusional enough to think that writing this out will make the feeling like a failure drain away. It won't.
If anyone ever finds themselves feeling like this remember; "nothing worth having comes easy. "
"The harder the labor the sweeter the fruit."
"Tears are weakness leaving the body." (By the end of school imma be hard core)
If you need to cry then cry it doesn't make you anything less it doesn't build you up into anything more, sometimes it just helps unravel a frustration growing in you heart.
Don't give up, don't give in. Know what you want and try to figure out a plan on how to get there. It sounds so simple put in words, that's why actions speak louder than forming statements.
