The Dark Wolf of Lost Hollow, book review

This book was a quick read, really a short story novella more than a novel. The plot was a twist on the ongoing debate of who is hotter to be with? A vampire or a werewolf? This book goes with, why decide? Be with both.

I wasn’t a fan of the twist where the girl is declared to secretly be a fairy. It seemed a little too copy-cattish from the True Blood/Sookie Stackhouse Novels to me. But it’s hard to be original when you are dealing with vampires and werewolves, so I’ve just come to expect such things when I’m reading this genre of books.

The characters had enough development and back story that I felt this novella could have been a full-length novel. I was disappointed by how short it ended up being.

If you are looking for a M/M/F erotica that’s a quick read, this is a good book to pick up. Even if you aren’t into the werewolf/vampire scene, you’ll enjoy it.

McFarland USA, movie review

I’ll admit, I’m a sucker for an underdog or Cinderella story. Right from the start, the movie has you rooting for Coach White, when he demeans the egotistical quarterback on his football team. He’s trying to teach the kids respect and they aren’t having any of it. So of course, when he goes to a primarily Mexican town, he settles in nicely. The youth of Mexico can be quite respectful toward their elders and Coach White is a fan of hard workers.

The movie, based on a true story, shows you how two cultures can meld and how people with completely different cultural backgrounds can come together and find a way to heal each other’s wounds.

If you are looking for an uplifting, inspirational movie, this is definitely a movie to see.

A note to parents, it very G, only a few cuss words, and moderate blood. But the plot is slow and kids are likely to be bored.
