SKELETON KEY

sk.jpgIf you love New Orleans and you love a bit of suspense, this was a pretty good one. Kate Hudson is as beautiful as always, but it was the story of HooDoo that made me curious to watch. It wasn’t riveting, but it kept my interest for the most part.

DANCE WITH THE DEVIL – Sherrilyn Kenyon

I’ve already reviewed Night Embrace here, but I had to go ahead and review this one as well. Sherrilyn Kenyon’s imagination blows my mind. I found myself sobbing less than half-way through this book (and I’m not a crier) when, as a reader, I was taken into Zarek’s unbelievably horrid childhood. I felt so much pain reading those passages, that I ached to make this hero feel better, to make him warm, and bake him bread (if you read it, you’ll understand). On top of that strong emotion, I laughed out loud at the sarcastic witty dialogue and fell in love with newly introduced characters like Simi, the demon and Sasha, the timber wolf. I absolutely loved this book!!!!!!!!!! From the hero who wants only to remember how to laugh, and the heroine who longs to feel emotions long left dead inside her, this book grabs you and sucks you in.

Christmas in St. Augustine

December 15, 2005 at 4:19 pm (Gab)

hh.jpgTo get a head start celebrating Christmas this year, my parents took my children, my husband and me to St Augustine to watch the boat-light parade. The boats were gorgeous, and I always love walking around St. George Street to shop. There’s a store full of medieval trinkets that my son and I adore. As you can tell from the picture, he was not too happy with me for denying him the sword of his dreams.

BORN IN SIN – Kinley MacGregor

km.jpg(Medieval Romance)

This is the second book in the medieval series about the Scottish brothers, but so far, it is my favorite. Not since Julie Garwood (and those who know me know what a compliment that is) have I read a hero who moved me more. I finished reading this book in two days, and then proceeded to tell everyone I know about how great it was, and how I couldn’t stop thinking about this hero. Sin is to die for. He is a dark, alpha hero who reached in and grabbed me by the heart. I knew him by the end of this book, and wanted to reach in and pull him out of the pages, just to let him know someone (me) loved him. If you like the invincible, alpha hero, this is definitely the book for you. Please, please, please check this one out!Title: BORN IN SIN Author: Kinley MacGregor Publisher: Harper CollinsISBN: 038081790X Copyright: February 2003 Paperback $5.99

HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE

Okay, so I actually saw this one in November, but because I’m planning on seeing it again with friends this month, I’m not really cheating by putting in my December’s Fun Stuff. GOF is the best Harry film yet. It’s action packed and fun, and, while it left out some of my favorite characters like Winky the house-elf, the inclusion of Lord Voldemort was excellent.
