Music Monday: Lifehouse - Broken

OK it's a few hours too late for Monday, but close enough.

Here's one of my favorite (older) songs from Lifehouse, one of my fav bands. They have a new album hitting stores next week.

Once upon a time, my sister wrote a book that had a lot of Lifehouse music in it ... I'll always love that book. LOL, Beck, elephants and all!! ;-)

A Look at Tyler: Behind the Scenes of Remember Me

Everytime I see something new from/about this movie I fall a little bit more in love with it...

Happy Valentine's Day a little early

I have a soft spot for Valentine's Day and when I saw this the other day (thanks to Isa) I thought it would was so cute that it would make a perfect Valentine post.

Happy Valentine's Weekend. Hubby and I don't really have any special plans, but I guess just being together is special enough LOL (wow I am sooo not usually that sappy)

The Uglies Movie(s) Moving Forward

This post is mostly for my daughter's benefit, she's almost 10 and she LOVES to read. She would especially love to spend her time reading YA. Since lots of YA subject matter is too old for her, I mostly force her to stick more to MG. We share a love of reading and both love some of the same book series. Last night we sat head to head, reading a preview of the upcoming Maximum Ride book, which prompted her to pick up the series and begin to re-read it. A snow day today helped her finish book 1.

She just danced across the room Yahoo'ing at this news about a series we both like a whole bunch, so I thought it deemed blogging.

MTV Hollywood Crush is reporting the following about The Uglies by Scott Westerfeld...
Industry sources have confirmed to MTV News exclusively that Screen Gems
.... is developing — and in fact, fast tracking (!) — a film version of "The Uglies" series.
While there haven't been any decisions made regarding things like casting yet, we can tell you that our source said production of the movie is planned for later this year. That means we will all hopefully know soon enough who could be playing the beloved teen Tally Youngblood in the futuristic, meaningful tale about a dystopian society that places an incredible emphasis on looks.

Are you a fan of The Uglies Series? Looking forward to the movies? Have an opinion on casting?

Maximum Ride: FANG

FANG, the newest installment of the Maximum Ride book series by James Patterson is due to hit the stores on March 15. Today as a fan of the series, I feel like I struck gold....

A fabulous preview of FANG, Book 1!!

It's available in at and at the Amazon Kindle store. There's also an 'app for that' LOL

It's been so long since I read any of the Maximum Ride books I had forgotten how much I enjoy them. Now I am really looking forward to this next one. My 9yr old is asking for it for her birthday at the end of March, I'm thinking I'll buy it for her and sneak in a read before I wrap it :-)

Music Monday

I thought I'd start making more of an effort to blog. Every Monday over on Twitter is #MusicMonday. Today I am calling attention to the song that inspired the name of my blog. It's Just Me by Blue October. I promise I'll try not to use Blue October songs everytime I do a Music Monday promises.
