Gone Girl Book/Movie Review

Rating: 4.5

Originally published 1/15/14

(continued from yesterday)

Hi everyone!  I absolutely loved this book!  If you haven't had a chance to read it, please do.  It was very well written.  When it comes to mysteries, I hate when I can figure out "who done it" and with what and why before I'm halfway into the story.  With GG, I did not see the twists coming.

Argh! I hate falling behind!

Hi everyone!

So I fell off the planet due to summer vacations and moving the family.  I still have "Minority Report" sitting in my DVD player, waiting for me to watch.  I still plan on reading all the books for the rest of the year and will just have to get on it!  October is going to be a busy month.  Thank you for your patience!

Unbroken Book/Movie Review

Rating: 6--yes a 6 because this story is HOLY-FREAKIN'-AMAZINGLY-INCREDIBLE! But that's our humble opinion. 

Updated 12-26-14: Movie review towards the end

Serena Book/Movie Review

Rating: 4

Hi everyone!  I thought Serena was a very great read.  Ron Rash is a great storyteller.  He has an extensive vocabulary relating to the novels era and I found I did have to look up certain words because I was unfamiliar with the terminology.  You don't really use "jodhpurs" in your daily conversations nor "chifferobe" for that matter.

Fancy pantsy jodhpurs!

The Monuments Men Book/Movie Review

Rating: 4

A great source of history regarding the history of the fine arts stolen by a lunatic dictator and restored by men and women who were willing to die to bring it all back in the name of freedom.

The Madman's Daughter Book/Movie Review

Rating...2.5/3 was a good story.  Good enough that I finished it in a few days and went on to read its sequel.  I think the story has a great premise and a lot of potential.  I was very involved in the story, but there were elements that had me annoyed.

Mary Poppins Book/Movie Review


When it comes to children's literature, I have to remember that story lines and characters won't be as fleshed as YA or other adult novels.  With that in mind, Mary Poppins was a bit different than what I expected.
