A little while ago I wrote about how I watch way too much TV and vowed to read some books. Well I am happy to report that I read two books and started two. The first was Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. I was drawn to this book for three reasons. First because it by the same author as Da Vinci Code which I loved. Second I had tried to read this book like three times before, but never got into it and I finally wanted to finish it. And third because the movie is coming out it May and if I see the movie before reading the book I will never read it.
I am proud to say that I finally got hooked after about the first hundred pages. This book to me was almost as interesting at Da Vinci Code it moved just as fast and after I got into it I couldn't put it down. I loved all the twists and turns especially in the end. I loved learning more about the main character Robert Langdon. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't read it, but if you like Da Vinci Code book or movie I would recommend this.
Once I read the book I decided to look at the previews online. I am sad to say that I figured out that the movie is a little different from the book. It is missing one important character in particular so it changes things I think significantly, however that being said I think the movie will still be good. I can't wait for it to come out!!!
The next book I read was called The Hunger Games. I am will post another time about my review of that.
I have a hard time finding books that keep my interest so if anyone out there has any recommendations. PLEASE PLEASE share!!!

Last Saturday we went and got new pictures. I was hoping to go every three months for Wilson's first year. This ended up being four months, but that is okay. These pictures turned out soooooooo cute. We have been trying to get Wilson doing his sad lip, but with no sucess. But we got it on film finally!!! Take a look!

This July it will be two years that we have had Jeeves in our lives. He is by far one of the funnest cats I have ever had. He is so sweet. He will purr at the drop of a hat. And the best is that he sleeps anywhere and in the stranges positions. I have tried to capture them over the last few days. These are just a few. I love love love this cat. I love Toby too.

Everyday I come to blog to see if any new comments have been posted and of course they haven't' because I have posted anything new in a while, but I just don't know what to post. My life is pretty much the same. Wilson and I spend our days watching TV, him napping, going to lunch with people and me trying to read books. By the way my book readying has gone really well. I think I want to do separate posts as book reviews, but since my last post about reading I have ready two books! Angels and Demons to get ready for the movie and I also read a book called Hunger games. Both great books! I am now reading Midnight Sun. This is the Twilight book written from Edwards perspective. It is wonderful so far, but I haven't read very much. The problem is that it is online and I don't find a ton of time to go downstairs and read it. Hopefully my next post will be more insightful and interesting.
