  2. Just my luck, if there is reincarnation, I'll come back as myself. The horror!

    I'll have to read the book though. The story does kind of pique my interest.

  3. Redeeming Love does sound like a compelling book. I'm going to look it up on Amazon right now. :) Nina Dobrev is a name that I haven't heard since The CW. Glad to see she is still acting!

    1. I don't like Nina and Famke either. I do like Eric Dane but I haven't seen him in many movies.

    2. Yeah, he's more of a TV series kinda guy, I guess. I did watch him in Grey's Anatomy and... don't remember where else.

    3. I watched him in that series in which he is the captain of an army boat in the middle of an apocalypse. He recently had a full frontal scene in some new series of his, methinks.
