My Week in Books and Movies

Book 61: Twenty Boy Summer.  The first chapter was incredible.  The rest was typical YA.  Fast read.

Book 62: Five Flavors of Dumb.  The characters have quirks, ambitions, and get to live out some fantasies other teens only dream of.  That makes it interesting and fun to read. 

Movie 42: I Am Number Four.  Special effects just cannot match the imagery provided by an author.  The book was better.

Movie 43: Kung Fu Panda.  I only fell asleep twice.  Sorry, but animation rarely catches my attention, even with as much action as this one offers.
