Ah, can I just say that I’m SO happy it’s Friday? This week has been filled with non-stop running. We’re in full fall sports mode with Football and Soccer and the kids have practice like almost every night (but Friday—woohoo). LOL.
Tomorrow we have an out of town football game for my son Chase and we have to be there at 8:45 am. OMG. It’s going to be COLD in the morning. As in I better get some hot cocoa to soak my hands in. Then we get to go home for a little while and then we’ll head into town for my daughter Erin’s 2:00 pm soccer game.
In other news in case you’ve been hiding in a cave, VAMPIRE DIARIES IS BACK…OH YEAH. And Ian Somerhalder is still mega hot. Le sigh. Last night’s episode was really good. Not only did Elena turn 18 and get to see a very nekkid Damon with water and bubbles glistening on his holy-hella-chest, but we got to see “evil” Stephan in action.
As always, the episode had a fast pace and I so can’t wait until next week. And guess what else was on last night? Come on, guess? SECRET CIRCLE…DOUBLE OMG…SQUEEEEEEEEEEE.
Phew, okay, now that I’ve settled down enough. As some of you know, The Secret Circle was my ABSOLUTE favorite series when I was a teen. I mean, I reread it every year, that’s how much I love it. Now, I know the TV show doesn’t follow the books, but let me say, I think I’m going to have another favorite show to watch (hehehe).
Britt Robertson is the perfect Cassie, and while I had my doubts about Thomas Dekker being Adam, he quickly blew me away in last night’s episode. So did the rest of the cast. The first show was fast-paced with awesome characters. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t seen it, but OMG, there is some Cassie/Adam chemistry going on. I do hope that they’ll explore the Nick angle as well (like they did in the books).
In yucky news, I was bummed to find out that The Nine Lives of Chloe King got cancelled by ABC Family. Say what? GRRRR…finally, a show I could actually watch with my 6th grade daughter and my 7th grade niece that didn’t have tons of sex etc in it and they take it off the air. My daughter will be devastated because she LOVED that show. However, I think I’ll let her watchSecret Circle (well at least the first episode). And I’ll have to buy her the Chloe King book series so she can at least figure out what happens to everyone.
I’m still diligently working on my YA Fantasy Horror. I’m about ½ done with it and the next chapter is going to be a VERY pivotal one. Can’t wait to write it and I hope the plot twist surprises my crit partners (LOL). Need to get my butt in gear and put in some writing time though.
In my TBR pile (or currently reading pile): Return to Paradise by Simone Elkeles (really loving it so far), Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles, Elixir by Hilary Duff, Balefire by Cate Tiernan, and Awakening by P.C. and Kristin Cast. Oh and I should be getting the ARC for A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies in the mail pretty soon (ooh so can’t wait).
Hope everyone has a FAB weekend!
