B is for Breakfast Club, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Betrayed, Blanca, and Britney Spears


There is only one teen movie that best represents the letter B  . . . that's The Breakfast Club!  Yeah Baby!  That's right I said it . . . The Breakfast Club.   Are you a Brain, Jock, Princess, Basketcase or Criminal?  Everyone who has ever watched the movie asks themselves this question.  

The Breakfast Club was the first movie I ever watched in the young adult/teen romance.  This movie has always been one of my favorites.   Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, Anthony Michael Hall, and Judd Nelson play a group of teenagers who come from different worlds and end up in Saturday detention for different reasons with an obnoxious Vice Principal who is the epitome of jerkwads. (yes I just said jerkwad!)  By the end of the movie they all realize they have more in common then they thought and end up all being friends or romantically involved.  The movie ends with Brian (A.M.H) writing a paper to the VP Mr. Vernon.  Below is the end scene and the very powerful paper Brian writes . . .

Television Show:

So I picked Buffy the Vampire Slayer as the T.V. show to represent B.  I admit after the first couple seasons my interest in the BTVS dwindled. Buffy is a girl who finds out while in high school that she has been destined to fight vampires as the Slayer.  The show revolves around her fighting all sorts of evil, not just vampires with a myriad of friends who follow her  along the way.  Xander and Willow are her two best friends, Willow goes through many changes throughout the series.  She explores her sexuality, and even becomes a witch.   Buffy has many love interests throughout the show the most significant is Angel a vampire played by David Boreanaz.  I really liked the first couple seasons of Buffy, but as the show went on a lot of my favorite characters seemed to get written off the show and the dynamic just died.

Lesson Number One:  Fear the Puppet!



So the book I chose is Book Two in the series House of Night.  The book is called Betrayed.  I fell in love with the H.O.N series by accident.  I was looking for a new book series to read in the library and came across Marked by PC and Kristin Cast.  The books follow the life of Zoey Redbird a young girl who gets marked as a vampire.  In the series vampires are unique they are given elaborate tattoos from the goddess Nyx which show off their individual powers.  In book two Zoey finds out that not only is her tattoo unique for a fledgling but her powers are as well. The series in itself keeps you engaged and I really enjoy reading it.  I recommend it to any avid vampire book lover.  

(Cool tidbit:  House of Night is based out of Tulsa Oklahoma. Which the authors both hale from!)

My Book: 


The next character I would like to introduce is Blanca.  Blanca is actually part of a trio of mean girls called the Replicas.  Blanca is an interesting character because she has hardly any lines in my books.  This is because Blanca is a copycat.  She has very few ideas that are her own, and pretty much repeats anything and everything the other two Replica's say.  Blanca's main features are a mouth full of braces, cheeks full of freckles and fiery red hair. Blanca's character is a very supportive role, it seems as with most teen novels, the villains usually have at least two comrades who back them up in their tormenting. Blanca is one of these two characters. I use Blanca for comedic relief, she is the dense one  . . . as well as the easily swayed one.   

What's For Dinner:  Leftovers!

Song of the Day:

Britney Spears - Hit Me Baby One More Time.


  1. The Breakfast Club is one of my favorite movies, and I watched Buffy a few times.The Book is a new one to me. I like what you’re doing here. I’m sure I’ll be back. Don’t hesitate to visit me!

  2. I think I've seen The Breakfast Club a dozen times, easy....
    Funnily enough, though, as much as I am into the supernatural stuff, I've only seen maybe 2 episodes of Buffy---don't know why, just never got into it, lol...

    1. Probably because Buffy got boring after awhile!
