Blood and ChocolateBlood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Vivian Gandillon relishes the change, the sweet, fierce ache that carries her from girl to wolf. At sixteen, she is beautiful and strong, and all the young wolves are on her tail. But Vivian still grieves for her dead father; her pack remains leaderless and in disarray, and she feels lost in the suburbs of Maryland. She longs for a normal life. But what is normal for a werewolf?

Then Vivian falls in love with a human, a meat-boy. Aiden is kind and gentle, a welcome relief from the squabbling pack. He’s fascinated by magic, and Vivian longs to reveal herself to him. Surely he would understand her and delight in the wonder of her dual nature, not fear her as an ordinary human would.

Vivian’s divided loyalties are strained further when a brutal murder threatens to expose the pack. Moving between two worlds, she does not seem to belong in either. What is she really—human or beast? Which tastes sweeter—blood or chocolate? More

I recently blogged about Adele and that she is awesomeness personified. Well, my favorite musical television show did a mash-up of two of her songs and it was so dope!

Santana (Naya Rivera) and Mercedes (Amber Riley) sang this mash-up with the Troubletones, and they KILLED it. I mean after making it their (well, you know…), they murdered it, skinned it, and ate it for dinner. Yes, people – it was that good!

I’m going to stop talking now and just let you play the video.

The Son of Neptune (Heroes of Olympus, #2)The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,
To storm or fire the world must fall.
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.

Percy is confused. When he awoke from his long sleep, he didn’t know much more than his name. His brain fuzz is lingering, even after the wolf Lupa tol him he is a demigod and trained him to fight with the pen/sword in his pocket. Somehow Percy manages to make it to a camp for half-bloods, despite the fact that he has to keep killing monsters along the way. But the camp doesn’t ring and bells with him. The only thing he can recall from his past is another name: Annabeth

Hazel is supposed to be dead. When she lived before, she didn’t do a very good job of it. Sure, she was an obedient daughter, even when her mother was possessed by greed. But that was the problem – when the Voice took over he mother and commanded Hazel to use her “gift” for and evil purpose, Hazel couldn’t say no. Now because of her mistake, the future of the world is at risk. Hazel wished she could ride away from it all on the stallion that appears in her dreams.

Frank is a klutz. His grandmother says he is descended from heroes and can be anything he wants to be, but he doesn’t see it. He doesn’t even know who his father is. He keeps hoping Apollo will claim him, because the only thing he is good at is archery – although not good enough to win camp war games. His bulky physique makes him feel like an ox, especially infront of Hazel, his closest friend at camp. He trusts her completely –  enough to share the secret he holds close to his heart.

Beginning at the “other” camp for half-bloods and extending as far as the land beyond the gods, this breathtaking second installment of the Heroes od Olympus series introduces new demigods, revives fearsome monsters, and features other remarkable creatures, all destined to play a part in the Prophesy of Seven.

Lips red as blood

Hair black as night

Bring me your heart,

My dear, dear Snow White.

So because I feel that it is my duty to my readers to bring fresh content to my blog, *cough cough* I am going out of my way to see and review this movie for you all.

There are so many reasons why I want to see this:

  1. Charlize Theron is in it and she so makes up for Kristen Stewart.
  2. The huntsman is Chris Hemsworth aka Thor. And I can vouch for his hotness…I mean, I’m not the only who’s seen Thor, right?
  3. I love dark, gritty fantasy movies. Some of my recent favorites include KickAss and Suckerpunch.
  4. I definitely appreciate Disney movie remakes, whether in film or book format.
  5. I’m semi-obsessed with Snow White right now since “Once Upon a Time” is on ABC on Sundays at 8pm (had to plug that in…post to come about that little gem!).
  6. And finally, in the previews, Kristen Stewart doesn’t speak. I’m taking that as a sign that the producers are aware of her weaknesses and are planning accordingly.

Summer is a long time to wait for a movie, but this looks like it will be worth it. We shall see, people…we shall see.

Yay! I now have a Facebook page. I debated about doing this, as I don’t think I have that many follows to justify a FB page. But then I thought, what better way to get more people reading this blog than to give them options?

So there you have ladies and gents. The entire thought process…yes, yes, I am rolling my eyes too.

Oh, here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/sayTaina

Safe reading!
