In for a Penny

I loved the two main characters Penny and Nev were wonderfully portrayed, getting to know each other as the reader gets to know them both. Having alternating chapters from each point of view was great fun as the reader was able to see what the character's couldn't. The supporting cast was sparkling and you come to care for them all. I can't wait to read Rose Lerner's next book!

Wild Ride

I loved this book! Watching Mab and Ethan decide to live and the entire group in Dreamland become an extended family was wonderful. Crusie and Mayer's previous books have been really good, but this one was on another plane altogether. I would recommend (and will recommend) this book to any one. And I loved the dragons... especially the marshmallow ones.

The Losers

I went to see this movie last night, after being convinced there wasn't too much blood in it, and I'm so glad I did. In several ways, it reminded me of the A-Team, with a group of highly skilled soldiers who are set up, and marked for death when they go off mission. 25 kids are killed in their place by accident, and the Losers decide to make it look like they were in the chopper when it was hit to allow them time to get back at the people who tried to kill them. It is great fun to watch them improvise and bicker and work together as a team to try to pull it all out in the end. And while doing so, they made me laugh, which is a great way to end a week.
