Hi, all…sorry for the late post. I slept in. Needed it!
Went to see Wreck-It Ralph last night…very fun. Clever and funny…great plot that will surprise you (at least, it surprised me!) and the voice actors were amazing. Sarah Silverman, in particular, amused me and I’m generally not a fan of her work. But she was great here.
But the reason you should go? To see the short, the Paperman. OMG…for the romance reader/lover…you will be enchanted. It’s a simple story, but that’s what made it so fabulous. I hope it’s nominated for an Oscar for animated short.
On to books…last time it was my turn to post, I told you all I was in a writing slump. Things didn’t look up for me until Tuesday, when two books I’ve been desperately looking forward to came out: BAREFOOT IN THE RAIN by Roxanne St. Claire and OUT FOR BLOOD by Kristen Painter. I started BAREFOOT and I know I’m going to need a box of Kleenex by the end of this book…not because it’s tragic, but because it is deeply emotional. The characters have so much baggage and so much at stake. I can feel it’s going to be a winner!
I’ll start Kristen’s book next.
So what are you reading?
