X is for Trixie Deveraux’s X-Men & a record!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by my blog yesterday and read my 24 Hour Read-a-Thon posts.  You made it my busiest day ever  in my 6+ years of blogging with 735 visitors 🙂

Blogging from A to Z

movieX-Men, 2000

Fun, fun , fun.  And it introduced us to Wolverine.  Great cast and not quite your typical superhero movie.  Thumbs up!

bookthe TriXie Belden series

I loved this series as a  kid.  I see that they reissued it in 2003 and it makes me want to go back and read about 13-year-old Trixie, who I always liked better than Nancy Drew 🙂

authorJude DeverauX

I read so many of her historical romances growing up (A Knight in Shining Armor showing up on this list already) and based on that, feel good about listing her as a favorite.  I prefer her older titles to the few recent books of hers I’ve read.

actor

Try as I might I just can’t seem to think of an actor or actress who I feel comfortable listing as a favorite.  I could’ve used Joaquin Phoenix  but I already used him for J.  Is there any actor with an x in their name who you would consider a favorite?  Am I missing someone?

    • As I was listing her I realized that it’s been quite a while since I read her.

  3. Man, you’ve got me on the actor with an X in their name. Jamie Foxx? LOL. I did the readathon behind the scenes…hard to sign up when my life is not my own! But they are always fun either way. I loved that first X Men. After the first two or three though, I lost interest.

    • Actually, Jamie Foxx isn’t bad. I loved him in Collateral and The Soloist.

  5. I really like the X-Men movies, especially that first one. 🙂 I was a fan of Trixie Belden too. Jude Deveraux is one of my mom’s favorite and one I read a lot of when I was younger. Great list, Stacy!

  6. Squeeee I loved Trixie Beldon, and like you, better than Nancy Drew. I think I still have a set of TB books boxed up somewhere.

  7. X-Men is also one of my fave movies of all-time. Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is brilliant!
