I’m always concerned when they make movies from my favorite books. Chances are they’re going to change it, or pick the wrong actors, or cut out bits I love. Once in a while, the movie is better, The Shining and Casino Royale jump to mind, but in general that’s not the case.

While the Fox and O’Hare series are not on my list of favorite books, they are enjoyable and I think would make good movies. You have a pretty, sexy FBI Agent Kate O’Hare and a handsome, sexy con man, Nick Fox who have to work together to bring down whoever – evil banker, drug dealer, terrorist, a bad guy of some sort. The scams are always convoluted with plenty of quirky characters, the occasional explosion and chase scenes. I’m picturing funny action-y movies to watch on date night with plenty of popcorn.

Fall always make me a little sad. I miss the warm temperatures and sun of summer.

There are definitely things I like about fall, though, aside from the fact that both our anniversary and my birthday are in the fall. I love warm sweaters and boots. I like to cuddle up on the couch under a blanket. I love hot drinks – coffee, apple cider, hot chocolate; and fall foods – apple dumplings, pumpkin pie. I like the colorful leaves and bonfires and Halloween decorations.

There are a lot of great book moms. Some are warm, some strong, some misunderstood, some doing their best in a given situation, but I don’t have many favorites. In all honesty, I tend to avoid books featuring kids, which means I don’t see women characters in their mom roles very often.

It’s been a while since I’ve read Room by Emma Donoghue and it was not one of my favorite books, but Ma deserves a place in the best book moms list. She was kidnapped and raped repeatedly, held captive and had a child, but she loves her son, Jack, with all her heart and does everything she can to help him be happy, learn, play, and eventually escape. I’ll grant you, she’s not perfect, but how could she be?
