My review for, Uglies


REVIEW:
Heroes, not Zeroes.
This book reminded me of the show, Heroes. All the characters had various powers from seseeing through anothers' eyes to changing the mood of a crowd. With these powers, they tried using them for the greater good. In this case though, it was to save their own from the mess he was in. Still, seeing them use their power was exciting to read about, no matter the reasoning. 
The outcome was everything I wanted but yet nothing what I expected. I know that doesn't make sense, but if you read it, it will make sense. 
Paranormal fans will definitely eat this one up!

4.5/5

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…

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…
