I finished my first book series of 2013. I read the "Birthmarked" series and it was pretty good. The first book took me a week to read... I found it very slow going and wasn't too interested until the last couple chapters.  I read the second and third books in a couple days though. They were much more entertaining. 

I'm not especially fond of the heroine though.  More than one time I just wanted to punch her and tell her to shut the fuck up already.  I really liked her love interest though and he was the main reason I kept reading. I really disliked how stupid she was at times.

I didn't like the ending at all.  I wish she would have extended it by a few more chapters. It didn't feel as rushed as the ending to the Hunger Games at least, but I would have liked to see more of the outcome from everything she went through.


I'm reading the Uglies series now and so far I like it though I kind of want it to go a different direction than I expect it will.


I went to see Les Miserables with my mom last night. I love love loved it. It was so good.  I felt almost just like when I saw it on stage in Detroit when I was 15. It was missing the fun of dressing up and just... that something special about seeing a musical performed live in front of you.  But it was still good.


I bought George a little Jeep doll stroller I found at Value Village for $6. He found it this morning and was SO excited. He put his bear Jeeves in it and when we were ready to go to daycare he started to bring the stroller. At first I said no but he was so cute I gave in.  He pushed it alllll the way there and kissed and hugged Jeeves goodbye before I had to bring it back home lol.




I also finally made myself a new LJ layout... Christmas is finally over... until November. :P
