Anticipation...

Tomorrow, I'll be running to the store to get the second book of the Hunger Games, "Catching Fire". I'm so excited to dive into it! It will be perfect timing for a road trip we are going on this weekend with the family. Good thing my kids will have a TV in the car to watch a movie, because otherwise, they may be a little neglected! :) Critics only gave it a C, compared to a higher score the Hunger Games recieved, but I've heard from other reliable sources that had a chance to read it early that it was awesome. And I never agree with the critics anyway. They're always WAY too...critical! :) So I'll be leaving the opinions up to myself. I'll let you know what I think!

The Vampire Diaries...

What is with the appeal of dark, dangerous, and attractive men that are of the Vampire world?? I don't know, but I've been sucked in. The new series, "The Vampire Diaries" is premiering on the CW on September 10. It looks a little like it's trying to be like Twilight (which, yes, my name is Nikki, and I am a Twilight-a-holic), but as long as it's good, who cares?? Call me cheezy, but with a main hunky vampire like that, I'll be watching!! :)
