Fun Fridays: Cool things I've discovered

It's been a while since I updated my blog or did a Fun Friday post (even this one is late...grumble, grumble), but I was out sick today -- darn allergies -- and have been trying to use the time in bed to do some catch up. One of the things I've been catching up on is my reading and TV/movie viewing. No, I haven't discovered all of these books or watched all these shows/movies today, but I have read them lately and my Goodreads profile and amazon reviews will soon reflect that.

In lieu of any Q&As, I thought I'd share my opinion of these goodies.

ALPHA INSTINCT by Katie Reus:
I've been on a kick reading werewolf romances lately, and this one was pretty good. I totally didn't see the bad guy coming!I picked it up one night at Barnes & Noble, and yes, I will probably read the next book in this series.
Ana Cordona has been a strong leader for the lupine shifters who survived after all the males and most of the females in her pack were mysteriously poisoned. As tough as she is, with no Alpha male, the pack is vulnerable to the devious shifter Taggart, who wants to claim both their ranch and Ana as his own. When Connor Armstrong comes back into her life, promising protection, it's almost enough to make Ana forget how he walked out on her before--and reluctantly accept his offer to mate.

The minute Connor sees Ana again, it reawakens a raw hunger. He must have her for his bondmate--his wolf cries out for it. But his human side knows he must proceed with caution because of their complicated past. If he is to truly have her body and soul, he must go beyond his burning desire and win back her heart. Whatever it takes, he is determined not to leave her side again.

But Taggart and his rival pack are not their only enemies. A human element in town is targeting shifters. Their plan not only threatens Ana and Connor's future, but the lives of the entire pack...

CHIMPANZEE - DisneyNature film
I saw this movie last week, and it is awesome. Very family-friendly documentary about a lil chimpanzee named Oscar, who has all sorts of adventures with his "pack." Even better, Disney donated part of the proceeds from the first week to the Jane Goodall organization that helps these hairy humanoids. How can you top that?

TOO CUTE! on Animal Planet
The name of this show says it all, and there are shows devoted to kittens and shows devoted to puppies. How can a show like that possibly not be good?

Tell me, what new shows/books/movies have you discovered lately? Inquiring minds want to know!
