Book Review: The Bourne Identity

I can't compare the book to the movie on this post, because (gulp) I haven't seen the movie. Yet. (Though I hear it's entirely different from the book.) This was my first time reading Robert Ludlum, and I really enjoyed The Bourne Identity. It was so full of twists, turns, action sequences, and complete surprises that I couldn't put it down. Who is Jason Bourne? The answer may kill him. I really can't write about my favorite parts-- it would ruin everything, and I won't spoil it for you (even if you've seen the movie and you think you know already). However, I will say this: this is probably one of the most exciting novels I've ever read, and I stayed up waaaay too late several nights trying to finish it...

Music Review: Skillet- Awake

I'm a brand-new fan of Skillet, and this CD might be the best thing I've ever listened to in my entire life. Full of catchy rock vibes and thought-provoking lyrics, Skillet's album Awake really caught my attention because nearly every song seemed to relate to me in some way or another. It's rare to find an entire album that feels... real... let alone one that has a good sound as well. Skillet has done an amazing job of both on this album!
