Bones of Faerie by Janni Lee Simner

Title: Bones of Faerie
Author: Janni Lee Simner
Stars: 3
I found this book very different then anything else I had ever read before. I thought it was good, but it was very dark in places. For one, the main character has a abusive dad who believes it's OK to kill people "infested" with magic.
When I say magic, I don't mean magic like Harry Potter magic, this magic is a little bit more dark and not as fun as Harry Potter. In this book, magic can be good and bad, and I guess that is in every "magical" book, but this one I found much darker, like I said, then any other magic based book that I've read before.

My Favorite Kid Movies

Last night I was thinking of writing a post about my favorite kids movies that, of course, I watched as a kid and still like to watch today as a teenager. These movies I don't get tired of watching and since I have three younger brothers I watch some of them a lot. I also included some television shows, too.

1. Spy Kids

I just finished watching this movie for the thousandth time last night and I still love this movie. This is a great movie for kids because it's goofy and there is a little bit of action in it, too. But I think that the second Spy Kids was better then the first a third.

2. The Incredibles

All of my brother's love this movie, myself included. I love it that the writers made a great plot for this movie with making it really interesting, keeping you hooked, all throughout the movie without making it scary for the younger kids.

3. The Backyardigans

OK, yes, I know, I know, that this movie is for really young kids but my littlest brother was watching this TV show the other day and I see why he still likes it. This TV show is great for little kids!

4. Zoom

This movie, Zoom, is a great action movie, and it also have a little bit of humor in it, too. I have loved a lot of things Tim Allen has been in, Santa Clause being probably my favorite out of all of them, and this one was great, too.

5. The Great Mouse Detective

I have loved this movie for a long time, and like all of the other movies, I never get tired of watching this one. I love mysteries, for a long time, so this is a great little kids mystery. There was one part that kind of freaked me out as a kid, just makes you jump a little, but it's still a great movie.

6. National Treasure

I love this movie. My papa, or grandpa, who loves movie, he has about over 200 movies in the upstairs of his house, loves this movie, too, even though it's a kids movie. I love this movie because it has a great plot to it, that's full of action and suspense.

7. Beauty and the Beast

I still love this movie, I love the romance and I love the point of the story. And since it's about a princess, little girls will love this movie, too. And who knows, maybe some little boys, too.

8. Treasure Planet

I remember watching this movie as a kid with my brothers and loving it. I haven't watched it for a long time, but it's still one of my favorites!

9. The Little Mermaid
This is another little princess movie that I love, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I think that a lot of teenagers think that these movies are stupid and are for little 3-year-olds, but I'm a teenager and I still like this movie, and I don't get tired of it, but that may be because I haven't watched it for a while. But I still think this movie is a great kids movie.

10. Tinkerbell
I first thought this movie was going to be dumb when I first watched it but, I love this movie. And all of my brothers do, too!

11. Shrek
This movie is probably my favorite out of all the Shrek movies. Of course I haven't seen the fourth on yet, but so far this one is my favorite. I don't know why, but I don't get tired of watching this one!
Well, that's all for right now and I hope that you will take my advice and either watch these movies if you have never seen them, and if you have seen them, I hope that you agree that they are really great movies.

One Tuesday Morning by Karen Kingsbury

Title: One Tuesday Morning
Author: Karen Kingsbury
Stars: 4
This book was great! I had never known a lot about 9/11, but now, after reading this book, I understand how devastating it was to the world. But this book was amazing because it showed how if we just trust in God, he will let everything fall into place. If any of you readers like to read Christian based books, this author is for you!
