"So what now, Ana?" José shouts at me over the noise.
"Kate and I are moving to Seattle. Kate's parents have bought a condo there for her."
"Dios mio, how the other half live. But you'll be back for my show?"
"Of course, José, I wouldn't miss it for the world." I smile, and he puts his arm around my waist and pulls me close.

  1. I haven't decided whether or not I want to read FIFTY SHADES OF GRAY. Reviews seem to be mixed. But I did enjoy your excerpt.

  2. Fifty Shades of Grey is one I have not read - I have deliberately avoided it but I don't really know why. No doubt curiosity will get the better of me and I will read it because EVERYONE else I know has! lol :)

  6. Popular title, and similar lyrics by Billy Joel and the Monkees as well. I've always liked the expression, shades of gray. I'm glad Ana isn't going to miss his show! lol

  9. Interesting enough snippet, but I'll probably not be reading these books. I don't think I'd enjoy them that much really. Hope you enjoy them, though.

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

Giveaway: A Touch Of Scandal

Book description:
The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never
hoped to feel again. But when she turns out to be the sister of the man
he seeks, he's convinced he's been betrayed.
Kate knows her duty to her family, yet how can she ignore Garrett's powerful pull on
