Best of 2010!

Hello dolls! With the year coming to an end, I want to work on my Best of 2010! From books that I've read, to films that's I've watched, to my favorite music of the year! Let me start out with my favorite subject, BOOKS!!!

Best series I read: The Hunger Games series

This great series ended this year, but the ride was so much fun. I had a few issues with the last book, but I've discussed it at length with a ton of my friends, so I'll just let it go.

Best Hot Scene in a book: Shiver

I can't pick a particular scene, that's too hard. This entire book is HOT! Can't wait for the last book in this series! (Out July 12, 2011)

Favorite book of 2010: Beautiful Creatures

I started 2010 reading Beautiful Creatures and it still stands as my favorite book overall, and it gets crowned as the book of the year! Going to start 2011 by reading the sequel, Beautiful Darkness!

Best Film of 2010: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 1

This film is pretty much the most awaited film of the decade! If you missed it then you better get your self to a theater to watch it!

Best of Animated film: Tangled

Disney has recreated one of the most beloved films in a heart felt way. Tangled is Walt Disney Animated Studio's 50th animated film. It all started with Snow White and it leaded up to this great film! Totally recommend it!

Best Soundtrack: Almost Alice

An entire album where the songs are just dedicated to our favorite Alice is just genius. Using today's great music artists with just one theme brought together a great collection.

Best Music Album of the year: Tell Your Mama

I've mentioned The Vespers several times this year, on my blog, on twitter, on faceobok, and I can not get enough of them! Their first album, Tell Your Mama, became my favorite of the year. I hope they release another album soon because 13 songs are not enough to explore their greatness!

Stand by for my list of most awaited books, films and music of 2011! I just need to figure out when I want to post it (tomorrow, or have it post itself on January 1, 2011).

Thanks for reading!

Love and Sugar from me, Jess

Waiting on Wednesday!

For this weeks "Waiting on Wednesday" we have Rachel Vincent's fourth book in the Soul Screamers series, My Soul to Steal.


Here's the blurb!

Trying to work things out with
Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can’t just
pretend nothing happened. But “complicated” doesn’t even begin to describe their
relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to
take Nash back.

See, Sabine isn’t just an ordinary girl. She’s a mara,
the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people’s fears—and craft
them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she

And Sabine isn’t above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to
death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.

Here's the heart wrenching book trailer for My Soul to Steal!!!

And She Has Risen from Death...

Oh gosh I've been totally MIA! School has been my prison for the past 3 months. I did, however, survive with nothing bellow a B, so I'm pretty jolly right now.

Christmas came and went, and I must have been a really good girl because Santa brought me a ton of STUFF!!! I'll post more on that later, but first I need mention a new "marathon" I signed up for.

In the month of January Lori from Pure Imagination is hosting...


I have a month to read at least one book from the Harry Potter series, but I plan to read all 7 before I enter school on January 25. I'm sure I won't have time to read the minute I enter school. I plan to read each book in 3 days and watch the corresponding film after I read the book. I will post about my progress as I move along. I hope this works! I will still have a few days left over if I fall a bit behind. Wish me luck because I didn't do too well in the Jane Austen reading challenge (I had a year to fulfill it... it didn't work out...).

I'm going out of town for the New Year and I'll be starting the read-a-thon there. I'll be wi-fi less while there, so I won't be able to post anything until I get back on the 2nd.

Love you dolls!
