Great quote. I haven't read Anna and the French Kiss, but it sounds so good!

Awesome list! Bad Taste in Boys is definitely one of my fave book covers of the year, although I haven't read it yet. Love that your quote is related to Harry Potter hehe. If I Stay is a wonderful book, though I loved Where She Went slightly more. I have Bloodlines in my TBR pile, I'm a little nervous about it because I'm not a big fan of Sydney but I should just get over it and read it.

Where the movie is lacking is rolex submariner replica in the emotional components that make most recent animated blockbusters really work. Particularly troubling is replica handbags Toby's death scene. Obviously there's a need to avoid rendering the violence in a graphic manner, but Dr. Tenma's reaction to it is so understated as to be undetectable. It calls to mind louis vuitton outlet (and suffers by comparison to) the early scenes of Finding Nemo, where Marlon is helpless to stop the attack on his family and is left replica watches uk cradling the last egg that protects his unborn son.
