Kimber An's Top Ten Books of 2009 and My Thoughts on the new Star Trek movie
I thought I should let you all know, since I've had to meld this blog with my regular book review blog, Enduring Romance. Several books of interest to my younger friends scored this year.
P.S. I finally got to watch the new Star Trek movie. I was ssooooo worried I'd hate it, because I love the original Star Trek so much. But, I absolutely loved it! Every freakin' thing about it! Kirk was hot. Spock had such a good mommy. Special effects were NOT overdone, something which George Lucus has such a hard time with. I cried when Kirk's daddy died at the beginning. Sulu's retractable sword was so very cool. Even Uhura, whom some of my generation did not like so much in this movie because she wasn't much like the Uhura we knew and loved in the old series, was wonderful! Loved her. Scotty was hilarious. McCoy was too. It was just great.
And Chekov was so cute I just wanted to bake him some cookies. If I was twenty years younger, I would've been squeeling like a stuck pig.
