FYI : Edited to add Frank (How could I forget Frank??)

These are some of my favorites at this very moment:

This book is classified as "Young Adult" but I LOVED it. It's about 500 pages and I read it in less than 2 days while I was in Texas. I also read the 2nd book, New Moon, also 500 pages the next 2 days after finishing Twilight. Easy reading and totally gets you into "I can't put it down until I finish it" mode. I can't wait until the 3rd book, Eclipse, arrives in August. I pre-ordered it from Overstock.com. Of course, I won't be able to read it in 2 days because I won't have my mom here to watch Liv. :(



I saw this movie yesterday and it was AWE.SOME. So fun to watch!! If you see it you have to listen for the one liners... like when Sam tells Mikela that there's more to her than "meets the eye." Hee hee! (If you don't even get that line, you probably shouldn't see the movie...)


The song playing today is my fave song of the moment. It is in Transformers, but I liked it before I knew that because, well, I'm cool like that.

I forgot Frank in my original post! Frank is my all-time favorite MTV Real World cast member. He's so cute and reminds me of my brother.

And for those of y'all taking notes: My favorite color is still orange. I still love Harrison Ford, but Shia LaBeouf is gaining momentum. He's so stinkin' cute. I loved him in Holes and Disturbia and he rocked in Transformers.

Also, Diet Dr. Pepper is most likely running thru my veins & I love Good Mail. (We still have spots available on my new Good Mail list. Email me!! Even if you're on the original list...)
That is all. Carry on.

Teehee..I'm first again :)

Ok, I am so glad you liked Tranformers!! I am going tomorrow with Mark, Ted's brother haha.

So more about this book "Twilight"...is it a mystery? I want to read it!

Oh Tori, we are music twins: Other than yours and Elastic (sorry everybody) I always turn off the music. I heart LP.
Twilight is in my library queue. I'm like #54 right now, woo hoo.
I guess I should put New Moon in my list too :)

No Cool Story said...

Never mind, the wait for New Moon is 99 days.
Yeah right. I guess I'm justbuying them then :)

Toni said...

So Tori, Are you saying your weirdo fascination with the creepy Wiggles guy is no more????

Good Mail, huh? Does that require going to the post office? Leaving my Herb here?? Hmmmmm.....

P.S. thanks for your Instead Cup tip! I checked it out online- going to go see if I can find it here in town, if not at least I can get it online!

What I'd give for a diet dr pepper these days....

I'm always looking for a good read, so thanks for the recommendations!

Fellow Good Mail girl!

I never did a review of Twilight on my blog because I didn't want to give it away. I LOVED THAT BOOK! I am still reading New Moon. Glad you mentioned this. Lauren, you are just going to have to pick up the book and dive in... giving details will give it away. It's a thriller and a love story. AWESOME and I had no idea while reading that the author is LDS. Even cooler!

Amanda said...

Great post! Thanks for the recommendations! I always love a new book!

I've wondered if Transformers was any good. How about for kids? I know it is PG-13, but my son is dying to see it. What do you think?

Tori :) said...

Amanda-
We had 7 people ages 3.5, 5.5, 9, 12, 14, 31 and 33 and we ALL loved it. It's also not bloody violence or anything. I mean, they're giant robots...
A few cuss words, that's about it.

I need more interesting books to read. I'm reading one now that is really slow in getting my interest. I SO want to go see Transformers. I think Micah is actually considering going to the movies to see it ~ he HATES going to the movies. Okay, never watched the Real World, but I like Frank's choice in slots. The Wheel of Fortune slot machines are my favorite!

utmommy said...

I just bought Twilight today! I can't wait to read it.

We are dying to go see Transformers, looks so good!

Heffalump said...

I LOVED Twilight as well, still have to get the next one.

I am sure you will be thrilled to hear that Shia Lebeouf is going to play in the next Indiana Jones movie with Harrison Ford, and he is going to be Indy's son. So you will have twice the eye candy!

annie said...

Hey Tori,
Good favorites :o)!
I haven't read the book or seen the movie, but they sound good...

Suzanne said...

I absolutely loved Twilight and New Moon. I just got done reading New Moon this last weekend. I finally got my sister's boyfriend's copy after my other sister read it because she had dibs on it first. Yeah, I had to wait a long time to read it! :) I can not wait for Eclipse to come out in a few weeks! You're right, the books are so good, you can't put them down. I read both in less than 24 hours and was cranky from lack of sleep. LOL!

I wonder if my hubby would be interested in seeing Transformers! LOL! I'm sure my boys would love it. Thanks for the suggstion! :D

heidi lou said...

tori, i absolutely LOVE reading your blogs! you are the most awesome person over 25 that i know, haha, you just seem so fun and full of life, i love it!

Jenny said...

I'll have to check out the books! I hit a dry spell on good reading at the moment. And my son cannot wait to see Transformers. I'm interested to see if he picks up on all the one-liners. :o)

PJ said...

So much to learn over here, looks like a good book, looks like a good movie, an the rest is just easy on the eyes;)

David said...

I am glad I'm not the only adult to like LINKIN PARK. I have given rides to kids at school (no-not the prison school) and watched their eyes bulge out when I start the car and their album starts blaring!

I love orange because I loved my high school, and our colors were orange and blue...sooooo awesome! Lauren attended the same high school, and they STILL use this quote: "my blood runs deep orange"!

txmommy said...

LOVED Twilight!, can't wait for AUg. Found myself slighly disturbed that I was rooting for the vampire but Edward is SSO delicious!

I love orange,
Don't drink soda
but I LOVE Amazing Race and CAN NOT WAIT for the next one.

And I lOve Good Mail, thanks again :)

Lauren said...

I just saw Transformers last night and it was the bomb-dot-com!!! Shia adds so much humor to the intense movie! I love him.
