EDITED: I remembered that I’d seen another movie.
Last book I finished reading: Are These My Basoomas I See Before Me? by Louise Rennison. It was okay, although Georgia, the main character, is so stupid that she’s unable to realize which guy she really likes…

Maeve never thought she’d miss the sensation of blushing—cheeks burning, like a fire beneath her skin, heart pounding, head dizzy. She closed her eyes. “But I miss being human.” William’s hand still touched her cheek, and his right arm was still wrapped about her waist. If she were human, her body would react in so many different ways to his touch. “You’re wrong about things feeling better. I felt more when I was human.”
Ideas for new, improved plot. Might add a POV. Will be awesome. Too lazy to start working on it though, because I’d have to go through every chapter and write a mini-summary for the Plotting Spreadsheet. Argh!
Word count is same. No excerpt.
Movies (as per usual, bold=better than the others)
Bienvenue Chez Les Ch’tis
Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole
The Wind that Shakes the Barley
Day of the Dead
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2: Wow… I laughed, I cried, I felt nauseous (because of the tension). Maybe on second viewing I’ll find plenty of things wrong with it, but, having seen it just once, I’m 98% happy with it. The 2% mainly stems from the epilogue. It was way too short to my liking. The Battle of Hogwarts was very epic.
Satan’s School for Girls
The Usual Suspects: Amazingly, the twist wasn’t spoiled for me. (If you know me, this is quite an achievement–I’ll usually spoil it myself…)
