I watched Mirror, Mirror earlier today, and I have mixed feelings about the movie. Considering the millions put into the movie, I was disappointed that the studio couldn't afford to shoot the forest scenes in an actual forest and not a sound stage. The movie is more Mel Brooks satire than it is Grimm.
Many books in the mail this week: Inescapable by Nancy Mehl; Love Finds You in Mackinac Island, Michigan by Melanie Dobson; Cancer on the Brain by Jay Lefevers; The Pigeon Pie Mystery by Julia Stuart; Yahoo Income by Dana E.Blazis and Sharon L. Cohen; Night Buddies and the Pineapple Cheesecake Scare by Sands Hetherington; Children of Angels by Katheryn Dahlstorm; Giants in the Land by Clark Rich Burbidge; Tea Party Culture War by Stephen Johnston; Mindful of Him by Hollis Hughes; and The Search by Shelley Shepard Gray. The latter is the only one I actually ordered, the rest are from publishers or authors. As you can see I have lots of reading to do in July! When I read and review The Pigeon Pie Mystery, there will be a giveaway!
Question of the week: Do you have a keeper shelf for books you loved? What books are on that shelf and why?
My answer: Not really. I have my R.L. Stine collection on two shelves, James Patterson books on one shelf, V.C. Andrews collection on one shelf, and Stephen King books on several shelves. I don't have the space to have a 'keeper shelf.'
Question of the Week: Birthday Wishes -- Blow out the candles and imagine what character could pop out of your cake...who is it and what book are they from?
My Answer: What an interesting question! Well, of course I would like for Sookie Stackhouse from the Southern Vampire series to pop out of a cake, but since she is a telepath, she would probably end up slapping me in the face.
