I'M SORRY!! I still haven't been reading much, but I have lots of books to review! If all goes well (my mommy's being a stickler and making me finish my book reports first. Blech. Reviews are SO much more fun than reports. Just sayin')
But... first draft's almost done.. so there's a good chance!
I also wanna throw it out there that I'm mad I'm not doing NaNoWriMo this year. >.<
Well, that's all for now, folks. But, keep for eyes peeled for reviews...
Giant by Edna Ferber The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks The Secret by Beverly Lewis Play on Album by Carrie Underwood
Brief summary: Ever After tells the story of the "Real" Cinderella, Danielle De Barbarac, played by Drew Barrymore. Danielle, like Cinderella, has the wicked stepmother and two stepsisters. Unlike other adaptions of the fairytale, instead of waiting for her prince, Cinderella, or Danielle, in this case, rescues herself. Instead of having a fairy godmother, Danielle has Leonardo DiVinci to help her out. Danielle overcomes her hardships, escapes from her evil family, marries her prince, and gets the famous happy ending.
Age level: Ten and up
Cautions: Kissing and some violence and immodesty.
If you like this movie, you might also like . . . A Cinderella Story
Personal Opinion: As a lover of fairy tales and re-tellings of fairy tales, I obviously love this movie. It's fun, action filled, dramatic, romantic, and everything else you can think of. You have to love Danielle more than Cinderella: she is the ultimate poster girl for "Girl Power!" The casting was great, especially with Drew Barrymore as the heroine. I love Drew Barrymore and she DOMINATED this movie.
Overall rating: 9/10
Random tidbit: I'm boring and don't have any. *le sigh*
