  1. OoOoO I'm reading a book with vampires too (Son of No One), but I'm not liking it as much as I'm expected to. Are you enjoying this one? :)

  2. Huh, I wonder why the fangs remain? The bones don't so why the teeth?

  3. Sounds interesting, especially since I've been to Bruges. I'd read this book just to revisit that delightful city.

    1. This is the 1st in a new series, but it also ties into her last series, the Ivy Granger books.

  7. I like the caricature type cover and am curious why the teeth are left behind. Trophies, perhaps?

  9. Vampires are perfect for October. Fangs being left behind? I'm seeing a character who likes to hold on to them as souvenirs.

  10. This would have made a good book for the FrightFall Read A Thon.

  11. Sounds good! I've been wanting to read more paranormal lately and this one looks fun!

  12. I'm on "Team Trophy". I was thinking of a beaded necklace with fang accents. Weird, I know. But that's just how I roll. :p

  15. I never knew that about vampires. I will have to add it to my new knowledge bank about the, :) Sounds like a fun read for this month. I just made my "creepy" book display for the school library and kids come running for these types of books. Anne's Friday Quotes

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.

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…
