E is for ...

Dare I say it. Dare I even say it? Once upon a time Edward was special to me. Then it just go to be TOO MUCH. He so broody. But then again if I was stuck with a whiny baby like Bella I'd be broody as well. Is this going to get me flame comments? I really did love the stories, once upon a time. I also prefer RP as Cedric. Even before I got tired of the Twilight stories/movies.

PD Eastman. The Best Nest. I totally remember loving that book as a kid. It was one of the first ones I got on my color Nook just this year. My niece and I enjoy it together.

The City of Ember should never have been made into a movie. The best part about that story was the DUH moment when as a reader I finally realized where they had been the entire time! I loved the first one. Liked them progressively less as I read further in the series but that's OK. I loved the first one enough to make up for all the rest.

ELEPHANT (Gerald) & PIGGIE!!!!!!!!!!! Only because they are the BEST! My two favorites are There is a Bird on Your Head and We Are in a Book! But ... they are all hilarious. Mo Willems is a picture book rock star genius. I was SO excited ... when was it ... about 18 months ago? When we got to attend a limited live webcast? Closest thing to an author visit. Was awesome to see his studio.

Emma--almost as much as I love Anne. And all the different versions. Thank you, Jane!

"Better be without sense than misapply it as you do. "
"If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more."
"There are persons who the more you do for them, the less they will do for themselves."
"Indeed, I am very sorry to be right in this instance. I would much rather have been merry than wise."
"Dear Diary, Today I tried not to think about Mr. Knightly. I tried not to think about him when I discussed the menu with Cook... I tried not to think about him in the garden where I thrice plucked the petals off a daisy to acertain his feelings for Harriet. I don't think we should keep daisies in the garden, they really are a drab little flower. And I tried not to think about him when I went to bed, but something had to be done."

Excuse the cheesy song cut. Couldn't find a clip with the real movie.
