Paranormalcy and Abduction

     Another great book: Paranormalcy by Kiersten White. Loved the voice, loved Evie, loved Lend, loved the twist on paranormal, loved everything. I loved how Evie can "bag-and-tag" vampires, but she dreams of having a locker. She kicks butt, but she's got this innocence that's endearing and sweet. I love how she's obsessed with this high school drama TV show (which sounds like Gossip Girl to me), she wears zebra print dresses and pink boots, and she carries around a pink sparkly taser she calls "Tasey". As if that's not awesome! (Because it totally is.) I can't wait to get my hands on the sequel, Supernaturally.

     I saw the movie Abduction last night. My husband laughed when I said I wanted to see it. His actual quote was, "You just want to see it because you have a crush on Taylor Lautner."
     Um, no. Okay, well maybe. But just a little. I've already done Crush of the Week this week, but who cares! Here's another.

     I didn't want to see it because of that reason though. Truly. The movie looked interesting to me, for one. And for two, I wanted to see Taylor Lautner in another role besides Jacob (and that itty bitty Valentine's Day part he had). That's the same reason why I started to watch (but never finished because I hated it) Adventureland. I obviously don't have a crush on Kristen Stewart. But I wanted to see her be someone else other than Bella.
     Anyway, the movie was pretty good. It was cheesy at times, but I think Taylor Lautner held his own. The action was good, the plot interesting, the chemistry between Taylor and Lily Collins believable.
     So maybe that's not the best movie review you've ever read, but, well, too bad. If you really don't like it, I'll get you with my own Tasey.


  1. Okay, as soon as I'm finished leaving this comment, I'm adding Paranormalcy to my 'to read' list! I want a Tasey! I used to own a stun gun, but it was white. Pink would be awesome! I know, I know, most girls carry mace--I always wondered what would happen if the assailant happened to be wearing shades, or if the wind shifted. Dude!

    And that Taylor Lautner, um yeah.

  2. Yah, I liked Paranormalacy too. I wasn't really feeling the deep relationship between Evie and her best friend, but I still really enjoyed reading the book.

  3. The preview for abduction looked pretty bad to me. It seemed like an excuse to show more Taylor. But maybe the movies better. I'll have to check it out . . . after it's on DVD

  4. i really enjoyed Paranormalcy and Supernaturally. I'm looking forward to the third, and curious as to how it's all going to work out. I also want to see Abduction, but I think I'm going to have to wait for the DVD, babysitters are hard to find, and my husband wasn't very enthusiastic about the trailer.

  5. I didn't get that friendship either- I think it's because she didn't show much of it.

    And yeah, the preview for Abduction is totally trying to make Taylor into this new action star. The movie wasn't stellar, but I still liked it.
