January Monthly News

Happy 2013!!!
My resolution this year is to keep trying to be a better human being. Be more compassionate, patient and loving. Keep learning and listen more.
Good goals for any person to strive for.
I also want to read at least 150 books. I read 137 last year and feel down about that since it's much lower than the previous years. I know it's good by any standards, but I want to read more.
My blogging goals are to comment more often, since I've been slipping, and find more blogs to read. Meaning the newbie blogs. Show support for the newbie, since I used to be one, that's my thinking....
What are your personal and blogging goals, if any?
You'll also notice in the monthly news that I'm keeping track of genres read instead of page count. It's the one true way to see which genre is my favorite or most chosen.

This is the eighth and final season.



REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
