Misguided Angel, Melissa de la Cruz

Now I know why I couldn't finish Torment -it def sucked...
Misguided Angel flew off, I was reading it away!I missed that!

Schyler and Jack flee from their protector turned captor the duchess while continuing her grandfathers research.
We learn about Venators - immortals who serve at least 50 times in good faith and gain the job/privilege of protecting Blue Bloods. Mimi is the Regent of the NY coven - she faces an abduction of a vampire and calls in Deming Chen from the Shanghai Coven to solve the case...
The narrator turns to her which is new and interesting!Deming is one of the twins we met briefly at the Coming Out party of our Blue Bloods of Masquarade.

It was interesting!!yei!!!cheers!!def recommended!!!!

I noticed Emma Stone from the 'House Bunny'(2008) and I've been waiting on this movie for a month plus!I watched it in bad quality but so totally worth it!!!!!She is my new role model!Funny, cute and totally cool!Not afraid to make fun of herself at all and charming as well!!!I would have to note that her co-star in this movie Amanda Bynes was on that track as well with movies like 'What a Girl Wants'(2003) and 'She's the Man'(2008) till she got all puffed up in the face (literally) because of plastic surgery or natural growth(the online debate goes on all around).
So this movie.... has Amanda as a total smart and self confident to the point of not carring about rummors- high-school-popularity that makes it interesting and totaly relatable to grown ups who hated high school (who doesn't). Of course it has a love twisth with Gossip Girl's Penn Badgley (I had to copy paste his name as I don't admire him at all...) but she makes it all work - like the movie is good because she is good!I can't stop using exclamation marks!!!!!!!!
Thank you for reminding me what a good movie feels like!!Easy to watch and easy to be cheered up by it!Cheers!!!!

Torment, Lauren Kate

Lucy and Daniel are in love. Daniel a powerfull angel fallen to be with his love, Lucy. Only when kissed she bursts into flames and he has to wait for her to re-incarnate and reach 17 and the circle goes again. Only this time they meet, kiss and all changes as she doesn't die but turns out if she does somehow she will not re-incarnate - hence this is her last go @ life.
In this book? Daniel allies with bad-ass-enemy-angel ie: demon Cam to protect Lucy, who will be hidden in this private school for half-angels (Nephlim) kids for 3 weeks. Lucy goes , makes 2 friends -roomate yoga-guru Shelby, and cute-rich-cool-but shy Miles - and starts working with the Announcers - shadows that can be time/space portals, or glimpses of the past or future;can be summoned like personal voicemail - in order to see her past lives with Daniel and understand more since he keeps her in the dark. End game, Lucy kisses Miles, Daniel doesn't comfront her on anything but ends up in a battle with a bunch of other angels against the Outcasts - really bad angels - and once the fight ends Lucy takes up an uninvited Announcer and takes off.

Problem 1:
OK they are in love, anything else in the story??The Miles character is cute but nothing else in the whole book...

'Harry Potter is all about confronting fears, finding inner strength and doing what is right in the face of adversity, Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend.' -Andrew Futral

I believe Torment is one step towards what Mr Futral said further from Twilight.....

Problem 2:
Lucy is whining all through the book....BLEASE!!!How bad she had it in her last school, how she misses her parents, how she misses Daniel....and with some flashes on how all loved ones in her every past lives was hurt because Daniel chose her and she died over and over!!!and she did not mention it in any of their conversations!!!it is Bella syndrome on crack plus with having opportunities to solve all of it!
Problem 3:
Lucy fought with Daniel like 4-5 times - all starting with 'I need to talk to him about all this' continuing with 'I can't keep my hands off him' and finishing with 'why don't you tell me anything' and Daniel flying off. One has to argue that 3 times at least in this book Lucy hurt him and then though 'I wish I could go back and console him, make everything right - but when I think of everything I can't' OHHHH PLEAZZEEEEEE!!!
Problem 4
I love the whole fight of angels and even their categories and all but could we focus on more war - strategy - power and less relationship stuff.

S0 I conclude that I would get the next book only to get that dialogue where Lucy asks all the simple questions and gets some simple answers out of Daniel because she has busted our @@@@....
ps:i lovveeee the cover....

Chatroom 2010

I gave this movie a chance thanks to Aaron Johnson who was once (and will be again for the sequel) a weak cute geek hero but now he shows what a good actor he is bcs he is sizzling HOT this guy!! Besides that he held on the whole movie to a dangerous level of not knowing whats gonna happen next which is quite difficult with the movie-plot-expectation I've developed...

In addition, I was amazed by the theme of a chatroom into an actual room and the whole concept of it, really I'm struck!Who thought of it???? really I'd like to know!
My generation (born i
n the 90's) has experienced the computer/internet revolution in social networking and interaction and I think it is more attainable for us as an idea than my younger cousins (,,,) because we adjusted our mind as such a concept where the newer generations just found it already accepted as an idea and learned it. That is why I looove this pic!!!
Plus, the halls of the chat network through which you find a chatroom (i couldn't find a pic) has this worn out tapestry and it is making it work! I am so jealous of whoever made this concept of a film possible - it is great that there is still creativity and surpirse in new movies...
Cheers to Hideo Nakata (director, Ring 2...) and the makers of this film!(it does come from a screenplay and
I can so see it played out in a theater).
Here's another poster - couldn't find the hall but found a weird poster that doesn't click alot with the film but still Aaron does look awesome!

PS: I'm reading Torment by Lauren Kate.... bit too tired to read... don't see the challenge going through...
