Stephanie Plum!

If you have never read any of the Janet Evanovich Stephanie Plum numbers books you need to.   Stephanie Plum is a kind of Lucy and Ethel meets the new millenium bounty hunter!   She does everything backwards and blows up cars, by  accident of course.  The first in the number series, One for the Money, is soon to be released as a movie with Kathryn Heigl as Stephanie, Sherry Sheppard at Lula (the prosititute turned bounty hunter partner), Debbie Reynolds at Grandma Mazar who always wants to know if people are 'packing'.   Then there are the love interests - Joe Morreli and Ranger the dark and mysterious former special ops guy.

Click here for the movie trailer.

 I read these books and laugh right out loud......funny when I am reading them in the service department of Toyota!     The books - now 18 in the series - are light hearted, entertaining, easy reads that just take you away.   And they are set in New Jersey which is where I hail.  My friends and I can't wait to see the movies.   They should be a real hoot!  I am only on #8....I'd better get reading.

Loved the books and cannot wait to see this movie! I think the guy who is playing Vinnie is perfect for the part!

The yellow bird below is a great photo - good catch!

And don't forget about the viewings! Grandma always has to go to those to make sure the deceased is truly dead - AND always wants to look at the dead person, lol! I LOVE those books!!! I am actually taking my grandma (86 y/o) to the movie when it comes out. She has read all of the books too (borrows from me).

OMG my Mom is OBSESSED with these books! She's been going on and on about them for years....she hasn't been to a movie theatre since she was a teenager, but she'll be going to see THIS movie LOL!

I just bought the first one on my Nook. Both my SIL and my sister said that this is a wonderful series. I'm a 'read it before I see it' kind of girl so it will be next on my reading list.....after I finish The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest".

I agree that these books are great. I have read all but Explosive Eighteen. I managed to get some friends to read them also because I would be reading around them and laughing out loud. We all can't wait for the movie to come out also. Come on January 27th!!

All the girls here are talking about getting together for a movie night to see this one:)
The books are very funny.

Wow, I have to get on the JE wagon - I have not read any of her books.

Love the pics of your Christmas and the naps. Sounds like how we are around my house too - and the stacks of presents - I am moving in next year...I love presents even if they aren't for me.

I love your New Year's Resolution. I started to be more "true" to what I needed a couple years ago. I still fall of the "say no" resolve but not that often. Happy New Year!

Wow! I think I read the first 15 or so, and then sort of forgot about them. I had no idea they were making a movie, but it looks like its going to be great!
