Book: The Truth About Forever

I love Dessen's books. I have only read along for the ride and heard a little of lock and key.
 so when the library  got this I thought yeah I should get it. I love reading her books in the summer.
so I did. and I have to say I loved it like always. she writes really good books.
they almost have a heart beating in them when you read them. there is something so human about the people and the story. I love this one. I like along for the ride to. but this one was great. it is so much like  life.   I  can see this being the story of some one I know.
Dessen makes writing a story look easy. like anyone can do things like her. the Truth is that very few people can write books as good as her. and I for one am one of the many fans of her book.  I love this book. I like how the love story does not over power the story its self.
anything I did not like? well not that I can think of. if I were to reread the book then I would mostly come up with a few small things. but as of right now. nothing.
 over all I love this book deeply. and think that it is a great summer read.
(YA-13 and up. nothing to bad in this book. it is mostly alright for for 13 and up.)

Book: The Time Traveling Fashionista

So I saw this book at the library and grabbed it because I thought it looked cuted. Then I fell in love with the art in the book. This book is good for older kids. But it is also  great for kids 11 and up. The age where you are not kids and not really a full teen. in other worlds you are a tween. If I had read this when I was a tween it would have been my fave book. It has fashion and time travel two of my fave things in the world. It makes for great fun. I love the people in it.And the feel was so cool. Miss.Turetsky really got the feeling down at times I felt like I was right there with her. I could see the cloths. and thats something that I loved.
the idea was so fresh and clean it was just lovely to read.
Beautiful art from the book
The only thing with them was that they some times were a little to dumb for my liking. I like it better when they are smart and can take care of them selfs a little more.I wish she would have been just a little stronger. b But other then that I really liked. It was sweet and fun and over all good. Its one that I think a lot of young ladies are going to never want to put it down once they see it. And its a great summer/fall read.

Star:**** 4.0

( YA- 12 and up -Mostly an older Tween book. Over all pretty clean. I think that most parents wouldn't find anything wrong with it)

Movie:The Fifth Element

I have heard  this movie is good. both from my family and from the book Classy.  I am not sure how I  ended up watching this movie but I did.  and I love this movie. that is all I can say. I love it. it rocks. it is funny but it has a good story. almost everything is done right. the only 3 things that are not is 1: the sets look like star wars way to much.  2: I hate what LeeLoo wears it is not cool at all. 3: the poster ( as seen here) sucks. it really does I would not have gone to see this movie with this poster. it  looks like crap.
but with that a side these movie is one you have to see if you have not seen it. it is to good to miss out on. it is one of those movies that you have to watch other wises you can not say you have seen Si-fi or a good movie. so what this movie it is good. take it from me. and if not from me then from Classy. and if not from him then from the si-fi world.  and if not from them then oh well you get the point. you should see this movie.

( PG-13- for sex, killing,blood, creepy images, being Si-Fi  and so on)

Aliens On Vacation

this book is a little young to be YA. but it is so cute and fun and really what a nice kids book should be that I just love it. I can see why disney is going to make it in to a movie. just a really good book.
how did I find this book? well my library found it for me. she was going to read it with her daughter. how did she get the book? well the guy who wrote this, his mom lives in my home town. and knows my library. and my mom. so with  that a side this book is so cute and I just loved it. do you know how hard it is to find a good kids book like this? well there are a lot out there because more people right for kids then YA. and I can see why. books like this will have kids beging and crying and yelling for more. I know what I want to one of them to. and that I will go out of my way to see this movie when it comes out.  has a story like this been told before? yes. but not with aliens on VAK. and whats wrong with the fack that the story has been used before. It is very good with books like this one. when done right like this one is. so if you every want to read a kids book or have a little kid friend that is 8 and up give them this book. and tell them to just read it. they will love it. unless they hate aliens and to laught and all books. and everything that is good and beautiful. it they have any or all of these then you will never find a gift for them. If they love all that is good and beautiful and like aliens and to laught and have a good time then get them this book right here.

(kids- 8 and up)

Movie: The Tourist

Every one said this movie was a wast. So I did not think it would be very good.  so yeah it would not the best of movies. but it is fun. I like it, a lot. and I love Johnny Depp. for an old guy he is really hot. like really.  and as far as Angelina Jolie goes I like her but her make-up  was way  heavy. She had so much on. and as for the story? well it was not great but I like it. I really like this movie. it is fun. and movies like books sometimes you need something lighter.  and come on this movie was just fun.  I liked it. and come on the end was fun. this movie is one that families will watch for fun for years to come.  so over all I like this film. a really good Rom- Com

Book: Falling For Hamlet

First off I have never read Hamlet. But it do know the story of it. and I do love this story. This book does a great Job of getting the story to young people today.Telling it in away that is easy to understand the feeling behind Hamlet.Sometimes it a little hard to get things clear and understand it when its in old english. I think that lots of people will love this. They will get the story the people and why it is trying to say to us about them and about our selfs.
But the writing was not always great and I think when doing a story like Hamlet they would have work a little hard on getting the writing a little better.I did love how well written the characters are. It was very cool to watch how Hamlet slowly changes. That was the best part of the book. and I think its something we can all learn from.And its something I wold like to see in more YA books.
I did and did not like how she changed what happened to ophelia. I found I liked her but did not like the change in a good story like hamlet.
over all I really did like this book. and think that others will just love it.

(YA- 14 and up. for talk of sex and they all get very drunk and other stuff like that)

Stars:*** 3.8

I was given a copy of the book by the publisher. This did not in anyway effect my review or thoughts on the book.
