Wordless Wednesday, a storm is coming... Or 30 Seconds to Mars...

For this Wordless Wednesday I have some pics for you all,
were a huge storm was coming right at us in 2006...

It really looked like it was a storm OR aliens!!!
And since I'm a huge fan of 30 Seconds to Mars and I just got
our tickets booked to their concert in April, I thought these pics
were as good as any to show you today!

And if you're ready to go to see 30 Seconds to
Mars yourself, please let me know, we'll go together!!!

I am number four

I saw this commercial on TV for a movie called, I am number four, and
the song for this commercial is one of my new favorite songs; This is war
from 30 Seconds to Mars. So when i walked into Walmart
last weekend i really didn't have a choice besides checking out... which
resulted in... buying this book!

 I know I know, the commercial was for the movie, not the book, but
since Bastiaan and I go so often (read almost NEVER) to the movies
I figured it was best to give myself a new little present. And just play the
song very loud, over and over again on my way back from Walmart
after buying the book.

So you can understand what's coming now, I got the book last weekend
and I'm writing about it now, so.... that meant, I really liked it.

It's really a book up my alley, funny, scary, strange, romantic, suspense
and all that good stuff. It's about a young man, to be specific, John a 15 year
old alien from the planet Lorien, and his guardian, Henri, as they run from the
Mogadorians, another race of aliens that are hunting down John and the
other 8 teenage Loriens living on Earth. John, the young man gets tired of
running and in the same time he develops special powers he meets this
lovely joung girl... ahhhhh... so sweet!

It's not all sweet, but I'm not gonna tell you about that, just buy the book
for your teenage kids, cousin, grandchild, kid's friends and read it before
you give it away!

The book was around 12 dollars, and it has a nice cover and  has a special
side (words on the side of the book), which I think is very "cool".

I would rate the book a good 7.5 because after all, I'm not a teen no more...

Favorite passage of the book:
"When you have lost hope, you have lost everything. And when you think
all is lost, when all is dire and bleak, there is always hope."

Under The Dome

I also really wanted this book...
First because it is a Stephen King, second because, it's
HUGE and it would look sooooo good on my bookshelf!!!

So, right after it was put on the shelf at Walmart, i went and
got myself a little present! Under The Dome by Stephen
King.  And no, i didn't read it in 3 days because it is really
huge. 1072 pages to be exact.  I'm not good with inches but it really is 3
centimeter high if you lay it flat on the table. Such a big and heavy book is
hard to read in bed, your arm and hands are in for a real workout the whole
time your reading!

And the great part was as big as it is, it is as good!!! it didn't feel like a 1072
page book, because every chapter had something interesting in it and because
of all the different characters, you get a real good insight in what is going on
under that dome.

The book is about a small town in Maine, surrounded by an invisible
force field. The people inside must do whatever they can to survive. The situation
deteriorates rapidly due to the dome's ecological effects and some people inside
like the idea of having an isolated populace to dominate. Of course there
are good guys and girls, that do not appreciate that and get in action to
stop the bad guys from making a bigger mess of what is already a huge mess.

Maybe I'm a bit bias because i already love Stephen King, but if your not a
fan (yet), this is as good as any story to begin with. It has all the elements, love
hate, faith, suspense, hope and everything in between and i think as a reader
you can't ask for more.

The book cost me i think, $21.00 but again, it is 1072 pages... hehe...

I would rate this book a 9. Like i said, it's big, its interesting and
your get a workout!

You can really give it to anybody who likes good stories, but it don't
matter if they are into romance books, like suspense books or comical
books, I'll say it again; it has it all.

Favorite passage of the book, hmmm that is a hard one to answer...
Its been a while since i read it and i didn't fold the pages like i
do now to remember where my favorite parts are...

Maybe i will tell you whenever i read it again!?!
