Two Great reviews!!!

Ok, so I have two super reviews! Let's start with movie night.....last night Matt and I went to see the A Team, and I wasn't as excited as normal to see this one but I was so wrong! This movie is over the top fun!!! It is filled with laughs, crazy action and inventive high jinks! Matt LOVED this movie and your husband/boyfriends will too.....so if you need some brownie points suggest this movie! I loved it! And while most of you will clammier over Bradley Cooper I love Liam Nesson! HA
Ok...........................NOW........My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares. Here is the "jest";

Daniel has spent centuries falling in love with the same girl. Life after life, crossing continents and dynasties, he and Sophia (despite her changing name and form) have been drawn together-and he remembers it all. Daniel has "the memory", the ability to recall past lives and recognize souls of those he's previously known. It is a gift and a curse. For all the times that he and Sophia have been drawn together throughout history, they have also been torn painfully, fatally, apart. A love always too short.
I LOVED LOVED this book!!! First off I read it in 2 days and I could not put it down I was consumed with a need to know what was going to happen next!!! I will say that at times a book could be better or worse depending on the mood I am in or what I read prior but not with this one, this is the best book I have read in a LONG TIME! This is Time Traveler's Wife meets Twilight and this book is filled with history, love and it is filled with history! Daniel shares his past lives with us starting in Antioch 512 A.D.!!!! Last summer I urged everyone to read The Time Traveler's Wife and I was so glad my whole book club loved that novel and this summer this is the ONE!!! SO if you read this please share with me your thoughts!! This is a page turner!!!!!!!!!!!! I did think the end was left with so many un-answered questions but at the same time I think she may be setting us up for a sequel, I can only hope!
