A Mish-Mosh With Some Twilight

The book I just finished was....interesting. It was good writing, with good characters, but something was off. It was realistic fiction (this could happen to you), but it was almost like the author got so carried away with telling the story that it became totally unrealistic. If that's how it really worked when you gambled and dropped out of high school, there wouldn't be any teachers left.

I am finally getting over my most recent cold (knock on wood). Today I had a little busrt of energy, but I used it all up and then some. We went to the library, the bank, and the doctor. I love going to the library, though. Libraries have always been my happy place and it is worth any amount of energy to go. (Well, it's worth more energy than a lot of other things.) The best is when the librarians recognize you and pick out books they think you'll like.
I also got a few movies; we'll see how scratched they are. I love watching good movies that I've seen before. It's really relaxing because you don't have to pay as much attention to the plot, just enjoy the movie as a whole.

Speaking of movies, the holiday release season is coming up (yay!). So, I'm trying to track down some good movies to see. Or for my parents to see on a date. You know, same thing, right?

I know the release of the second Twilight movie is coming up. Honestly, I'm not too impressed with the books or the movie(s). Please walk away now if this is going to horribly offend you. I'm much more excited that they are releasing Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince in time for Christmas!

I have read the four Twilight books and seen the first movie. I liked the first book; I was actually impressed and excited for the rest of the series. I was, however, deeply disappointed. The plot is dull and seems to repeat itself, and at the end, we have a perfectly happy, married, mother, (vampire) 17 year old! Really? (And the writing wasn't even that good.)

Okay, so that's my rant, and I'm sorry if you were offended, but now you can go back to drooling over Robert Pattinson.
What movies have you seen recently? Any you would reccommend?
